Other bands influenced psychedelic rock. The Doors defined it.

Surely one the best bands ever. Morrison's poetry is incredibly, especially on The End.

One of the first truly "dark" bands in existence, along with The Velvet Underground.

There was definitely no other band like them. They had that rare ability to be experimental while still having pop music sensibilities.

From michaelroc2011 12/14/2013 20:45
My favourite band of all time. Considering they were writing music the same time as The Beatles I think the difference is huge. Their Music is 10 times more current and sits side by side any modern songs where as the Beatles music in general is totaly dated.

I walked into a shop the other morning singing Changeling to myself. Came out of the shop and Love Her Madly was playing. Consecutive songs on an album (LA Woman) written 44 years ago. Says it all for me.

I don't even need to touch on Jim Morrison worship or hate to value the Doors as a top 5 band. Robby Krieger is an undervalued guitar great, while Ray Manzarek's keyboards are simply incredible. Whether you like his poetry and stage presence or not (I do), Jim Morrison is a great songwriter with a great voice and impressive musical vision.

You could argue about The Doors in some areas, but as a rock band, there hasn't been anything better.
