The title of the best band is currently held and has been held for 40 years by a little band known as The Beatles .They are the no.1 selling artist of all time and they saved rock and roll from extinction which would of meant no rock/metal/etc!!These guys changed music,style and the world in the best way possible.hell if it was't for them we wouldnt have some of the kick*** rock music made after the 60s till today!and no long hair on guys which equals no headbanging.here are a few other bands that have come close Led Zeppelin,Nirvana,Metallica,The Rolling Stones.
See The Beatles Beatles

The term used by everyone to define their favorite band on Urban Dictionary. Especially common among listeners of lesser-known bands and younger people with narrower tastes. It can never be known who the best band ever is, because it is subject to different preferences and opinions.
Teenage girl: GREEN DAY IS THE BEST BAND EVER!
Melodic death metal fan: Green day has no talent- you're just a conformist who likes to bandwagon on every hyped band with sex appeal. Clearly, Opeth is the best band ever.
Objective listener: Neither one of you is completely right- now please stop cluttering Urban Dictionary with your opinions!

There are many bands that compete for the title of "the best band in the world", popular ones include,

-the Beatles
-metallica
-nirvana
-alice in chains
-pink floyd
-led zepplein
-the rolling stones
(all of those are great bands by by the way)
and the list goes on, saying _______ is the best band ever is pretty much saying that thats your favorite band
In my opinion the title for the best band in the world would have to go to the doors, but that's only an opinion and no band can really take the place as the best band in the world unless every single person on the planet liked said band.
Fred: the Beatles are the best band in the world

Mike: hell no! metallica kicks their ass on the stage

Bill: are you kidding? pink floyd all the way

Dan: the doors are better than all of them combined

Tom: lolz U guys R so gay, limp bizkit is by far the best band ever.

Dan, Bill, Fred, and mike settle their differences and beat the living shit out of tina.
