Poll: Rock Bands That Have Lasted Over 30 Years

Dedicated to my all-time favorite band, who captured a vision and turned it into a dream.

The following bands have since their formation lasted more than thirty years. Some bands took time apart and were reunited, while others kept going continuously. Many have struggled through tough breaks and setbacks; members have come and gone; but they never lost sight of what they believed in, and so they held the dreams within their hearts, always remaining true to themselves along the way.

Which of these rock* bands that have lasted over thirty years is your favorite? Or, which one would you most like to discover?

*including subgenres progressive metal, progressive rock, heavy metal and hard rock
