Man how ridiculous.... I can't believe some of the comments I am reading below..... AC/DC fans actually trying to say that Led Zeppelin & Pink Floyd are inferior bands compared to AC/DC... I have been an AC/DC fan from the beginning of the bands days with Bon Scott & I absolutely love the band but these comments claiming AC/DC are better then Zeppelin & Pink Floyd is just crazy... I'm a huge AC/DC fan & there is no way I could sit here & expect anyone to take me seriously by saying that AC/DC are a better band then Zeppelin or Floyd...

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
