Famous 5-Piece Rock Bands


Hey everyone. I've noticed that there are very few 5-member rock bands in music history. Right now, I can only come up with two:

01. Aerosmith
02. Pearl Jam

Can anyone else name other popular 5-member rock bands?

And I'm not counting bands like Maroon 5, Matchbox 20, Snow Patrol, The Strokes, et al. I'm looking for well-respected, INFLUENTIAL rock acts here.

By the way, why do some rock bands have 5 members when just 4 will do. I mean, the basic formula is this- lead singer/guitar, lead guitarist/keyboards, bassist, drummer.

Thanks in advance!

Are you serious, Jericho? Only two? What about, in their lead singers own words: THE ROLLING F***** STONES!
