I would say, that my top 10 are the bands that influenced me as a teen in the 80s.. the more hippy trippy side of rock, which went well with my burgeoning Art studies and growing sense-of-self. I don’t seem to have liked 70s rock, as I went from the 60s vibe straight into the 80s feels.

U.K. The Animals 1962:- (Rock/Rhythm and Blues/British Blues)
U.K. The Kinks 1964:- (Rock/Pop)
U.S. Jefferson Airplane 1965:- (Psychedelic Rock/Acid Rock)
U.S. The Jimi Hendrix Experience 1966:- (Psychedelic Rock/Blues Rock/Acid Rock)
U.K. T. Rex 1967:- (Glam Rock/Psychedelic Folk)
U.S. The Doors 1967:- (Psychedelic Rock/Acid Rock)
U.K. Roxy Music 1970:- (Art Rock/Glam Rock/Pop rock/Art Pop/Progressive rock/New wave)
U.K. Kate Bush 1978:- (Art Rock/Art Pop/Pop Rock/Experimental Pop/Baroque Pop)
U.K. New Order 1980:- (New Wave/Synth-pop/Dance-rock/Alternative dance/Post-punk/Electronica)
U.K. The Cult 1983:- (Hard rock/Heavy metal/Post-punk/Gothic rock (early))

I’m on a much different wavelength.

Bread: the inventors of “soft rock” (which to me is astounding - to invent a genre). I’d recommend their album “bread: retrospective”

Other than that (a band who invented a whole entire genre by themselves! (Not derivative)) I’m a 1 hit wonder type of person.

Edit: I thought a little more about this. My favorite Beatles album is “rubber soul”

One enormous band that was left out of all of your lists is the BeeGees!

Before their disco ascension, they’d been making hits for 20 years! The beegees were so overplayed, that radio stations would advertise themselves as a beegee free zone! The beegees thought about this and decided they no longer had a brand name, so they devoted themselves to writing songs for only other artists .... and though you might hate them, you’ll certainly love these other songs written by them.
