This one should be fairly easy, much easier than video games were.

5.) Cinderella. As one of the most badass sounding vocalists, Tom Keifer brought this band into his own. In fact, I just saw Tom Keifer last month.

4.) Dokken. Don Dokken has some pipes (or rather, HAD some pipes, his voice is garbage now) and George Lynch REALLY defined them.

3.) Motorhead. As one of the most badass metal bands EVER, their tracks always had a punch. Deaf Forever, Overkill, Stay Clean, Bomber, Ace of Spades, I'll be your sister (my favorite), and I won't pay your price were all killer tracks that put them over the top. I've seen DOZENS of Motorhead shows and met Lemmy 3 times, always a great band to listen to.

2.) Rage Against The Machine. As the only alternative band that doesn't completely SUCK to me, Rage Against The Machine's first album is actually the very first CD I ever purchased. When I popped it on and heard Bombtrack there was no turning back.

1.) The Beatles. This one is just obvious. Taxman, And Your Bird Can Sing, Lovely Rita, seriously, their catalog stands as a great reason why they're the best selling band of all time!
