IMHO, Black Sabbath is the most influential - they completely changed the rock scene, and paved the way for the heavy metal genre.
I don’t agree that BS were more influential than the Beatles but I do think you can make a great case that they are the two most influential bands of all time.

Just came in to say Sabbath should be in the poll before Led Zeppelin ffs.
Saw The Hawk's post above and was pleased.

I think in rock music Led Zeppelin were more influential. But the Beatles have influenced every form of popular music, whether you like it or not. In this poll, I've voted for Led Zeppelin, but in general:
The Beatles>Led Zeppelin
And by the way, in my opinion Clapton was the most influential rock artist.
