Lets go with Rush and ZZ Top!!! They are still Rocking it!

Rush probably has the most album sales, they have like 37 albums listed on their website.

Forgot about Nirvana. Never got Green Day -- always thought they were vastly overrated. Not familiar with the other two, but I'm just an old fart.

Wikipedia------ my source for the majority of my useless facts........Calls this the power trio format.

A power trio is a rock and roll band format popularized in the 1960s. The traditional power trio has a lineup of guitar, bass and drums, leaving out the rhythm guitar or keyboard that are used in other rock music to fill out the sound with chords. While one or more band members may sing, power trios usually emphasize instrumental performance and overall impact over vocals and lyrics

They suggests looking at it like the pioneers- Jimi, Cream, James Gang, Blue Cheer.

Next wave is Rush, MotorHead, ELP, The Jam and The police, and ZZ Top.

Next is Nirvana, Blink 182, Green Day.

Triumph Probably should go somewhere in there.
