Why are the Rolling Stones and the Beatles considered to be 2 of the greatest rock bands of all time?

I understand they are orignal and well respected but musically they sound like the garage band across the street from me

Maybe the garage band across the street from you sounds like them. They might go to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones music for their inspiration because they were so great.

These two bands, along with a select few others, have stood the test of time. Their music and popularity was decades ago and yet people still like to listen to their music. Can you say that about groups like Back Street Boys and New Kids On The Block?

They are the 2 most important, in my eyes. I think the Stones are great, and the Beatles were over hyped. Others think Led Zepplin is the greatest ever, I have no use for them.

I think it has a lot to do with society at the time. Like Wolfmother would have likely become an infamous band if it was around the same time as those bands. It was new and different back then, which was exciting. It can probably be likened to mainstream dubstep- and Skrillex may become infamous, you never know. I don't think Justin Beiber will become infamous, he's basically just a piece of a 90's boy band without the backup singers. Everything he says has all been thought of before, but the Beatles & Stones style wasn't mainstream at the time. The Rolling Stones also referred to drugs a lot, which was not common before the 60's (50's popular music was mainly jazz band stuff, or the blues or soft piano stuff etc. that mainly talked about love, or death. Instead of drugs and sex, and drinking & partying)
