    2. Pink Floyd
    Essential Album: Wish You Were Here
    At the vanguard of the Progressive Rock movement, they have sold more than 200-million albums since 1967. One of the first bands to use light shows and fireworks in their live performances.

    One of the first, most successful, and longest lasting power trios, The Who were innovative both musically and technically.

    Their "Stairway To Heaven" is believed to have received more radio airplay than any other song in history, even though it was never released as a single.
