I listen to plenty of instrumentals. I'm guessing what you really meant is melody in general.

There is really no answer, in most rock bands though, the guitar probably is.
And yeah what boo boo said

"I'm a one man band"....

I voted Piano / Keyboard since you can play almost anything with a key board

Bass. It's in any musical genre, almost.

Keane has a bass but no guitar for example. And many bands go without drums.

Tough poll though, it really is the strengths of all the instruments that come together to make a great group. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts in a band, I think.
