Some bands you might not realize were trios...

Hamilton Joe Frank and Reynolds. Not four but three guys, Dan Hamilton, Joe Frank Carollo, and Tommy Reynolds.

Ben Folds Five
, despite the name they were a trio.
I should have had the bolded in my list. Maybe the Jam, too, but I only know a couple of their records.

America. Dewey Bunnell,Dan Peek, and Gerry Beckley. Close vocal harmonies. They got a lot of airplay in the 70's. A horse with no name, ventura highway come to mind.

Since then my fascination with them has only grown, and their vast catalogue has but two albums I can't play from front to back.
Those being: Caress of Steel (loathsome, other than Bastille Day) and Vapor Trails (three or four great tracks, remainder loathsome, though the remix version that came out a few years ago at least makes it bearable).

Presto is a third possibility: three or four beauties, including "the Pass" which has simply gotten better with age, the remainder loathsome and I suspect they just phoned it in.

Remainder of their catalog, as you put it, is spectacular one end to the other, starting at "Rush" (jam from first note to last) and ending with "Clockwork Angels" (ditto).

Try listening to "Moving Pictures" first to last in one sitting, I am dead convinced in a PF "Dark Side of the Moon" sort of way, that was their intention all along. And/or, they did the entire album on the Time Machine Tour in 2011: see that Blu Ray for more info, watch that portion beginning to end mid-disk. In fact I'm going to do that right now as work background music

I think D.O.A. was a trio for a while.
Also The Neos was a great canadian hardcore punk trio.

A couple adds:

The Wombats
The Beastie Boys
Hüsker Dü


And, while already mentioned, Muse. You'll never look at teddy bears the same.

The funny thing about Caress of Steel is that those long-form tunes have some of the most badass riffing of the entire decade hidden in there. You just have to suffer through some of Neil Peart's most ridiculous "I'm stoned off my ass, but still better read than you" lyric writing to find them.

But yeah, I Think I'm Going Bald is the worst song ever, by any band.

It's hard to name favorite trios from all bands around the world so here is my favorite domestic bands, first from 70's and next from these days.

I'm gobsmacked that no-one's mentioned the classic Trapeze line-up - Mel Galley, Glenn Hughes, Dave Holland.
