    Everybody says The Rolling Stones and The Beatles. But for me it's Queen.

    if I were to expand my list, it would include a few more British bands and a couple of American ones and two Australians one as well:

    Queen
    King Crimson - all incarnations from 1968 onwards
    Pink Floyd
    Genesis - mostly the Peter Gabriel era, but also post-Gabriel
    The Shadows (Hank Marvin, also Cliff Richards backing band/touring band) (guitar band instrumentals)

    the various Zappa bands of the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's
    Dick Dale and the Del-tones (guitar band instrumentals)
    The ventures (guitar band instrumentals)
    The Beach Boys
    The Band
    Grateful Dead
    Allman Brothers band (which kinda of bled over into Derek and the Dominoes so Brit-American)
    Bachman-turner Overdrive
    Kiss - before they decided to do disco, even they took the germanic route with it

    AC/DC
    The Atlantics (the guitarists in this band pioneered most of Hendrix's showmanship stuff (teeth picking, playing behind the head etc) in the early 1960's) (guitar band instrumentals)

    I'm going to stretch this to heavy metal:

    "The Big Four" plus Destruction, Kreator and Sepultura for Thrash Metal;

    Bathory, Venom, Celtic Frost, Sarcófago plus tons of 90's norwegian bands for Black Metal;

    Saxon, Iron Maiden for NWOBHM;

    I can keep going if you want!
