    The Pixies
    Nirvana
    Radiohead made it cool to use keys again.
    The Strokes started a "retro" kinda thing.

    Zakk Wylde, Rhandy Rhoads, John Petrucci (ok, they're from the 80's, but the bands they played are quite influential to those new ones we have now)

    For me, it has to be AC/DC. Without them, there would be NO hard rock. Sure, Sabbath pioneered metal, but AC/DC is the DEFINITIVE hard rock band. No AC/DC, no Manson, no Nails, no A7X, no Alice in Chains, Soundgarden, Nirvana, back all the way to the Crue, Poison, Skid Row, etc. You can point at Zeppelin all you want, but they were way too, IDK, raw? Un-cut? AC/DC was so furious and raw and edgy in their polished sound, so pure, as in five guys belting it out, that they brought a sound to rock and roll that has yet to be matched. My post sounds a little contradictory, but I would point to AC/DC over Zeppelin as the most visionary, just because of their pureness, their edge, their soul and heart, that has transcended DECADES and still had only imitators instead of innovators.I sold my soul for Rock and Roll. Have you?

    Yes, they are maybe the most influential. Every decade added a new sounding to the rock music. Jimi hendrinx added the screaming guitar, Pink Floyd are the masters of psy rock, Guns & Roses for hard rock and roll, Rolling Stones for classical Rock & Roll.
    Personally I love Whitesnake. And I think they were very influential.
