...Hated the 90's and not really into any of todays "rock" bands...I'm more of a metal guy outside of classic rock...

Haha, that's okay, everyone has their own preferences XD Thanks for taking this!

...To each their own...I happen to prefer Pink Floyd, but I do like Led Zeppelin...and I dislike both The Doors and Jefferson Airplane...so what?...

...It's personal opinion, not fact and to me Pink Floyd is the band I like better of the two...but you seem to want to be a jackoff about it...so be it, be a jackoff...

...And I'm not a big Journey fan, but can tolerate them well enough...The Doors, I like them as musicians and the actual music, but really dislike Jim Morrison...so there, more fodder for you to insult my tastes with...

Hey, you're not the only one that thinks Pink Floyd is better than Zeppelin both technically and conceptually, and I'm glad that there's someone out there that realizes that The Doors really are not that fantastic. Seems like every "classic rock fan" loves them, I just never got it. & Journey's a good band, if you like them, you like them, don't feel bad about liking a certain band because others condemn you for it. I've loved Green Day since I was 12 years old, and even after three years of other people telling me every day, how they suck & how much they hate Green Day, it didn't phase me, I still enjoy their music very much. I'm also one of the biggest Kinks fans you'll ever come across, and not many people know/like them either, but they're still my all time fave band. I started this survey just for fun, but some people enjoy putting other people's musical preferences down. That's not cool at all. Unless, it's shitty music that the majority listen to today, but if it's still classic rock, good music, then why argue over it? Not everyone is the same, and thank God for that!
