I absolutely love the Stones, and I don't think there have been too many more bands of their caliber--but what about the Velvets(quite a bit before the period we're discussing, granted) and Suicide? They made music that is timeless and--dare I use a hippified term here?--cosmic.
The Ramones were a fantastic band too--not quite in the A-class like the VU and Suicide(in my opinion, anyhow), but they played pure, unadulterated rock'n'roll at a time when few other bands did, and they've been a touchstone for everyone who's picked up a guitar since.
You're right on the money about the pre-AIDS thing. Not that I've had much great sex in my life, but every time I did, the realization that it could be a death sentence hit me like a ton of bricks.
