    I do not. I respect the hell out of them and they’ve made amazing songs and records. They’re just not one of my personal favorites.

    Top 15, maybe. However, I don't like much they released after I was born - and that was in 1973.

    Not close in my top bands, but respect them, especially their early work. They have some great songs, but not really that into them as a band

    No. I came to them later in life. They have some excellent songs and albums but tough for them to crack the top ten

    I can't put them very high on my list either.  I keep wondering if I'm missing something with them.  They have a lot of songs I really enjoy, but when I dive into their records, I don't fully grasp on.

    this thread is about respect, like No Coder & ledvetterman mentioned. i have tons of respect for this band. they have earned that from me(imo)
    their top 10+ songs are absolute classics and then there's ALL the nuggets we don't hear on the radio  :)
    i would put gimme shelter, sympathy for the devil and satisfaction etc against anything by anyone ever

    Love the band.  My pops' favorite band, their albums were heard throughout my first 18 years of life.  Love so many songs - both hits & deep cuts.
    However, they are not in my personal Top 10.  A 'no' vote means nothing about my love of the band, only that at least 10 other bands rank ahead, including a number of bands who were in their prime before I was.

    I completely respect the Stones and their influence on music.  Part of me wishes I liked their music as a whole more than I do.

    great band, just don't do it for me. I love their songs done by other bands, kind of like Neil Young and Bob Dylan.

    Pearl Jam, My Morning Jacket, Band Of Horses, Bon Iver & Jeremy Enigk / Sunny Day Real Estate are my current top 5.
    Pink Floyd is the only "classic" rock band I really listen to any more.

    Tough to break in the Top 5 as there are only 3 spots available after Zepp and The Beatles.
  • cdthomas1981cdthomas1981 Milwaukee, WIPosts: 78
    No
    Right now my 5th spot is open, but I can't put the Stones in it.
    1. PJ
    2. The Beatles
    3. Zeppelin
    4. Radiohead
    5. It constantly changes...

    When the questions is asked, The Beatles or The Stones, it's always The Beatles. I love a lot of the Stones music, but could never get in to their albums. I tried to dig deeper and it just didn't connect for me so that is why they will never crack the top 10. Bands like Pearl Jam, The Beatles and Led Zeppelin have great radio hits, but those only scratch the surface and the albums are glorious musical journeys. Beyond the obvious big names, bands like Metallica, Tool and QOTSA have laid out some masterpieces and have done so consistently while evolving and experimenting with their sound.
    It's a hopeless situation...

    Not even close.  They are great but it's a geration thing.  I can remember Steel Wheels being a big deal and tour when I was younger and saying, WTH wants to see these geezers?

    I say the same thing when I go to see a PJ show now too though, lol!

    Same for me and Tom Petty.  Lot of great songs but the albums don't do it for me.

    I'm the same way with Petty.  I love Full Moon Fever as an album, but that's the only one.  I love songs off of Wildflowers, my favorite being It's Good to Be King, but after that it starts to fizzle out for me.  A lot of songs i love, but I can't stay with the records when i put them on.

    A couple of my favorite albums ever on Sticky Fingers and Exile but they’ve sucked for longer than I’ve been alive.

    They aren't even in my top 50. I don't mind them, but I also don't really care much. If someone puts on a Stones album that's just fine with me. I'll like it. That's about as far as I go with them.

    Top 200 maybe. Sorry I never got into them, respect them and like a handful of their songs but overall not really my cup of tea.

    Right now my 5th spot is open, but I can't put the Stones in it.
    1. PJ
    2. The Beatles
    3. Zeppelin
    4. Radiohead
    5. It constantly changes...
    Nice top 5...well, top 4!
    Mine:
    1. PJ
    2. Radiohead
    3. U2
    4. Oasis
    5. Nirvana
    (I think Beatles and Led Zep would both sneak into my top 10)
