Great band, but very repetitive, shallow and of no real cultural value at all...no real statement, just shallow repetitive music.
Pink Floyd are the best

I beg to differ, in my opinion Led Zeppelin was the greatest rock band of all time, this is due to the fact that they did almost every form of music tried different music styles, different instruments, and the driving power of each band member. AC/DC just stood by what they were good at, which is power chords and riffs, blues riffs to be exact, they never really tried anything new, maybe they did something different a couple times but they just got too repetitive for me to listen to.
