I don't have the time or energy to define "Hard Rock" right now, so I'll just treat it as self-explanatory. Here are guaranteed bands for this list:

Led Zeppelin
Deep Purple
Guns N' Roses
KISS
Scorpions
The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Queen
Alice Cooper
Van Halen
AC/DC
ZZ Top (depending on whether or not you consider them to be hard rock)
The Jeff Beck Group
Cream (see ZZ Top)
Bad Company
Uriah Heep
Blue Öyster Cult
Free
Grand Funk Railroad
Manfred Mann's Earth Band
Bon Jovi (again, see ZZ Top)
Living Colour
MC5
Nazareth
Ted Nugent
Thin Lizzy
The Who

There is already a good list on the main page. Why change it?

Is there? I don't see it. There used to be a list for this, but it's gone, now. I remember the top five being something like:

1. Led Zeppelin
2. Black Sabbath
3. Jimi Hendrix
4. The Who
5. Deep Purple

I'd include some heavy metal, punk, alternative, and power-pop acts as well.

I'm explicitly excluding heavy metal, punk, and most alternative bands from this list because they have their own lists and fit other genres better than they fit pure hard rock. Power pop definitely has a place here though. I picture Cheap Trick rather high.

Absolutely. Cheap Trick is probably Top 15-worthy. Very influential, popular, and respected.

Well since you're excluding metal, I'd say something like this would be in order...

1. Led Zeppelin
2. The Who
3. The Jimi Hendrix Experience
4. Deep Purple
5. Van Halen

T. Rex would be good to include on this list, too.

I really think this could be one of the better lists on ddd if we work on it...

Top 3 should be locked though:

1. Led Zep
2. The Who
3. JHE Experience

After that it gets a little trickier, imo.

Yeah. I mostly conceived this list to fit a lot of the underappreciated hard rock groups of the 70s. The ones with changing lineups that may be known for one or two songs, but get a ton of appreciation from other bands, hence Scorpions, Uriah Heep, Whitesnake, etc.

If metal and punk and alt are excluded because they have their own lists, then shouldn't glam also be excluded?

dmille,
We have an alternate thread for this. Much more comprehensive.
