To be classic Rock you have to be a popular Rock Band post 50's that's not punk rock

As far as I understand it at least

But it's a dumb term each of these bands could be put in their actual genres

The Zombies have nothing in common with Pink Floyd for instance, why bother comparing them

I'll compare an apple to a table if I need to. Basically, if you want to compare two different things, just determine which is better at what it does. Is Zombies a better psychedelic pop band that Pink Floyd is an art rock band? In the event of comparing an apple to a table, one should decide on the overall quality of an apple deciding on (as examples) taste, appearance, and texture. Then decide on the quality of the table by sturdiness, appearance, and lack of scratches and wear. Is the apple a better apple than the table is a table? What's the better ITEM is the question.

See how even the most outlandish comparisons can be madeJudging two unrelated bands is easy-peasy lemon squeezy compared to comparing an two different items like an apple to a table, but it can be done.

What do you accomplish once you've determined that the apple is a better apple than the table is at being either a table or apple?

A: fixed.
B: I accomplished being able to compare two unrelated things and possibly proving my point. I said it was outlandish, so I didn't expect this kind of exact situation to happen in better life. I'm jusrt saying it can be done, and judging two unrelated bands is easy compared to it.

I guess a better scenario is getting to choose what kind of prize you get at a game show, say like The Price is Right? Based solely on the quality of the items displayed, would you rather take the $500 Honeywell air conditioner or the $900 Ginori tea set? Most people would choose their situations as a denominator, or roomspace. To some, higher price means higher quality (a misconception, although they usually go hand in hand). In the event of quality itself if you're not put in a roomspace or necessity situation such as "I need a new AC" or "I need a new tea set," what would you choose?"

Why is it that it can be a 90's band but not a 2000's band

Where is the cutoff for "classic"

Judging from my own experience, I'd say around 20-25 years into the past is the cutout.

The cut off is whatever you want it to be. William chose 90s as the cut-off.

Adding JGuy Grungeman's results the tally now stands at...

1) Beatles (49 points)
2) Pink Floyd (39 points)
3) Led Zeppelin (34 points)
4) Rolling Stones (30 points)
5) Jimi Hendrix (30 points)
6) Black Sabbath (24 points)
7) Doors (22 points)
8) David Bowie (19 points)
9) Bob Dylan (17 points)
10) Fleetwood Mac/Cream (16 points)

I'll expand the list to the top 15 or 20 if it keeps going, cheers.

Except for the Fleetwood Mac and Cream, that list is quite predictable. RS, Doors, Bowie, Dylan, Hendrix, Sabbath are all expected. Beatles, Pinok Floyd, and Zeppelin in that order as the top 3 is EXACTLY like "official" collaborative top bands lists I have seen all around the internet. I've literally seen them in that order so often. Sometimes Radiohead would appear in there making a top four, and I'm surprised Radiohead isn't on this list.

Calling Radiohead classic rock is f*cking weird that's why.
