Queen es la banda mas influyente en mi vida, y en las de mucho.... Pongo mi voto como un granito de arena mas para que esta gran banda sea la numero 1, que en mi vida lo es....

Well, this is good news and Queen are my all time favorite band (yes, I like their music better than the Beatles, but apples & oranges & I digress...)

but honestly, where are the Beatles on this list? seriously?

Daydrian

Where's the Beatles man?

Noeeliz

Queen the best band ever at least in my eyes Queen #1

malygatita

QUEEN !! LO MEJOR !! FORMIDABLE!!!

Natalia

I would actually say that Queen should be at the first place in the ranking!!!!! Queen have made the world a better place to live in with their outstanding music so basically they should be the FIRST most influential band in the whole world!!!

Although Led Zeppelin is a great band, I personally would've liked to see either Pink Floyd, The Who, Deep Purple or The Beatles(or Queen, of course, being my all time favourite band) on the number 1 spot.

Dla mnie tylko Queen!

QUEEN will always be Number 1 regardless of any contest, poll taken or survey asked....one only has to read of the dedication to their music, to each other & to their fans. Even today, the loyalty that Brian & Roger show towards Freddie's memory....what other band does that after all these years....just shows what great character Queen had/has. QUEEN WILL ALWAYS BE NUMBER ONE!!!

jannie

for me Queen will allways be nmbr. 1 and the most influential music in whole my life!
thanks Freddie,Brian,Roger and John!!!

Krittaya Arun

Although Queen's in the second position,but Queen always be the one in my mind.

Steph

Totally agree with this list, although I would have put Queen in first position.

Michael McKeown

Queen should have been first - were never dictated to - completely changed the way music was written - rock opera - and please, can anybody touch Bohemian rhapsody for shear brilliance. Will never forget Slane Castle - 1986 and live aid 1985
