    Pretty subjective, but I would argue Skynard, The Eagles and Kiss. 
    Ki⚡️⚡️and Skynard were my two favorites. Liked the Eagles and Pink Floyd too. 
    I always took you for more of a Butthole Surfers fan.

    Great song with an important message. A mantra of sorts.

    I certainly respected the name. Just didn’t care for their style of music.

    Status- Standing by.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Talking about a combination of biggest and best, I'd say Zeppelin by a wide bit.  I think in terms of gross sales, only the Eagles are on the same level, and Zeppelin isn't nearly as derivative of their inspirations.  Pink Floyd had Dark Side, but The Wall was released at the end of November in 1979, so that was big in the 80s (and the movie came out in 82).  Springsteen wasn't really an icon until his early-80s run.  

    Of the other really biggest selling rock acts of the 70s either don't have the depth of their work...Fleetwood Mac had Rumours and...; Meatloaf didn't have anything else (and millions of copies of Bat Out of Hell have aged poorly); the BeeGees? 

    Others that I'd assume wouldn't be in the discussion because they aren't 'rock', but you'd have to consider Stevie Wonder (although Talking Book > Innervisions > Fulfillingness' First Finale > Songs In the Key of Life over 4 years is amazing) or Marvin Gaye (What's Goin' On > Let's Get It On back to back is pretty spectacular).

    @Foghorn - the question was biggest and best.  Born to Run would definitely be in the conversation for best (although Rolling Stone has 4 70s rock albums and 2 of the Motown ones ranked above it on their latest list), but to be the biggest you need a #1 album.  Zeppelin had 5 albums hit the top and 2 others at #2.  Bruce had one #3 and one #5.

    My last band did this one.  We all had in-ear monitors at the time, and our soundman would mute the band thru the PA for a bit, and I'd play our four vocal parts on the piano (Do-Me-So-Do), in time, (the audience couldn't hear it) and then all four of us would come in, perfect pretty good pitch, 4-part harmony and in time.  Sooo cool!   B)

    Heavy metal, actual rock, Motorhead.

    Plenty of big selling soft rock bands, but big selling doesn't mean great.

    Led Zep, Deep Purple and Thin Lizzy also feature in my list of greats.

    I would settle for kids getting taught any science or critical thinking skills (physics is too much to hope for at this point).

    I was pretty fond of Kansas for a while but I listened to a lot of different bands. Many of them had one great album and faded away.

    The first 3 albums from Zeppelin were top rate, those that followed were mostly garbage.  Maybe the biggest, no way they were the best

    Bringer of Storms?!  More like Bringer of kind compliments and sage advice.  Sheesh.  There goes that "tough guy" veneer.
    Playing with our minds. The storm he brings is inner turmoil.  He plays an unorthodox good cop, good cop routine to lure you in.   Next thing you'll be cooking amazing food and sharing positive feelings.  Be warned.  That's not for the likes of you & me.  I'm headed back to flag his post as a warning to others.

    You right to ignore this.  There was no music until synthesizers, drum machines and sequencers eradicated the weakest link, i.e people and instruments.    
    All those noisy show-offs thrashing around getting sweaty, yuk - no thanks.  Unless it was hewn from a Fairlight's floppy disc, a 303 or an 808 is it really music?

    You may be on to something with Zeppelin, but based on 2 minutes of research, it's pretty clear chess outsells checkers.  Not that that makes people smart, they're still mostly idiots, but maybe the idiots just lack the intellectual hp to play any game in lieu of drooling into a can of Bud Lite in front of a WWF fight.  Who's to say?
