I think the Beatles and Rolling Stones are regarded as the best "ROCK" acts ever. Out of your choices, being as the first few would be "Metal" i'd say Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd is a band with a sound of there own like all great bands.i love them. And yes maybe the greatest rock band ever. I love the stones more than the Beatles. Why? Stones rock more.

I feel obligated to say Animals as Leaders,Between the Buried and Me and Periphery but thats me and my taste and considering they are massive influences on me especially Periphery hahaha.

muse's latest material is absolutely terrible compared to Origins/Absolution.

Thats the point they peaked at in my book.

Have you listen to 2nd Law yet? After being disappointed by Black Holes and The Resistance, I REALLY love 2nd Law.

bought it on release day, thought it was atrocious compared to their old stuff, it just lacks that ooomph in my book.

Theres nothing that compares to songs like Falling away with you,Stockholm Syndrome,Citizen Erased,Futurism,Bliss,Dead Star or even Hysteria.

The production just felt like it lacked soul to me, it all felt too clinical on the 2nd law, supremacy isnt half bad and has the old vibe but i just feel the ochestral backing feels a bit out of place at some points that might just be me it all feels to rock opera for my liking.I probably love the older stuff because it focuses on their core instrumentation as a band.

Best and favorite generally used interchangeably in this case.

i.e. implicit to TC's question is "Who do you think is the best"

There are The Beatles, then The Who and The Rolling Stones, and THEN you can start discussing.

If we're talking new-ish bands, I really like The Killers, The Strokes, and Bloc Party.
