I didn't say they were the best choice, just the first that come to mind haha as a kid, before I got into rock and metal, I knew rock as being all those kids who wore Nirvana shirts.

If we're differentiating rock from rock 'n' roll, I'm going with the Beatles first followed by the rest of the British Invasion bands. Any post 60s band shouldn't even be considered, imo. Every band listed on the poll is hard rock excepting the Stones.

All the bands you referenced qualify, except Foo Fighters IMO.  I’d add Zeppelin and Sabbath as bands that leap to mind when someone says “rock bands.”

I don't understand why the POO FIGHTERS are on this list too.

I would go with DLR VAN HALEN.

So many others though.................................

For voting, I picked by choosing "Other".  There are more bands, and groups, than the ones listed like: the Beatles, Elvis Presley, the Doors, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Yes, Genesis, Rush, U2, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, and Scorpions.  I can go on by naming more of them.  I've liked the Rolling Stones, and any of Van Halen, with both David Lee Roth, and Sammy Hagar, as their lead singers.  I still haven't liked AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Guns N' Roses, but I've liked a few songs from them, though.  The reason I decided to pick "Other" is because the Beatles, and Elvis Presley were the most influential, and if it wasn't for the both of them, who were that, and around in the rock genre, then it would be the likely hood there wouldn't be any.  There will be different opinions, and we will have them.  Just like naming songs, with guitar riffs, they haven't needed to be great, and even good.  As long as there are, and have been guitar riffs in, and part of the songs, then there shouldn't have the need to be any difference.

But what if you didn't grow up with that decade of music or have little to no knowledge of it? There have been many different eras of music and a few different generations that have grown up over the last 50 something years. So what band best represents rock to an individual is a much wider net than those who pioneered and had influence over the genre back in the 60s.

As much as I like Tull, if I were in charge of the "Rock Music" time capsule, I'm not sure they'd be in there. The folk-y, symphonic, pastoral influences are too prevalent for their whole body of work.

The Who is a good shout.

I was going to say The Who as well.
