2Green DayGreen Day are an American punk rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock . Some of their influences more.

Their first couple of albums are so Ramone style hard hitting punk rock. As the years went by they started maturing in their music as evident on their Warning album and and following it with one of the most lyrically powerful and thought provoking albums ever produced by a punk rock band.American Idiot..

They didn't get my vote either but the fact you think Green Day is emo shows how little you know Green Day

How is Green Day number one? Is it just emo boys voting on this site? Come on, this is laughable.

3Jimi Hendrix Experience

Aside The Beatles, Cream and Rolling Stones, The Jimi Hendrix Experience blew away all other bands in their day. The Experience did everything. They turned an ok song into a masterpiece (All Along The Watchtower, Hey Joe. ) They wrote song in which all three members shined (Manic Depression. ) Jimi Hendrix beat the greatest guitarist around at the time (Eric Clapton. ) Jimi Hendrix beat the greatest band around at the time (Most can agree Are You Experienced is a better debut album than Please Please Me. )

Why is RUSH not on this list? Feeder Busted? Come on Man!

4NirvanaNirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. more.

Nirvana are the grunge band. Kurt and Dave are musical geniuses, so is Krist, but not as much. "Come As You Are" is another song were all three members shine. Either "Heart Shaped Box" is one of the creepiest songs I have ever heard, or the music video manipulates me into thinking the song is creepier than it actually is.

5ParamoreParamore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.
6Blink 182Blink-182 are a Pop Punk band formed in 1992. Original lineup were Mark Hoppus (Bass Guitar, Vocals) more.

Nowhere near the most musically talented but have to be the band with the least filler songs over four albums ever.

7RushRush is a Canadian progressive rock band that was formed in 1968. Even though the only founding member still in the band is Alex Lifeson (Guitar), the band is most well-known for their current members Neil Peart (Drums) and Geddy Lee (Bass, Vocals). more.

How can one even compare to Rush? Their talent and pieces are levels above anyone on this list. From the instruments to the insanely well written lyrics. no one is even close.

One of the greatest bands of all time. How many bands can say that they've gone strong for 40+ years? Their instruments are just pure genius leaving we mere mortals in awe of them.

Rush had the greatest drummer ever, the greatest bass ever, the most underrated guitarists ever AND They have to and I mean HAVE TO BE #1! 1974-2112

Too good to be #7 on this list.

Cream are the Cream of the crop. there is no doubt that each member of the group is close to the best of their kind. Jack Bruce as a Bass Player, Ginger Baker as a drummer, and Eric Clapton as a guitar player.

12The PoliceThe Police were an English rock band formed in London in 1977. For the majority of their history, the band consisted of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland.

The Police are the greatest Reggae Rock band ever. However, they next to no competition. Sting has the personality of a sack of tennis balls. But Stew is a good drummer.

People who actually know their music and technical ability would rate The Police at number one without question.The lead guitarist is fantastic and classicaly trained, plays difficult pieces.The drummer is the most underrated of all time always appearing on T.V. doing solos and need I asay anything about sting, also a great bass player.

13ZZ TopZZ Top is an American rock band that formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. The band is composed of bassist and lead vocalist Dusty Hill, guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, and drummer Frank Beard.

Lets get something straight. ZZ Top are a good band, but people say they're better than they are because of their beards. or maybe the guitar flips. or maybe Billy Gibbons legendary guitar, Pearly Gates. I can't decide which is more awesome. Gibbons' guitar or his beard.

They win in several ways. They are unique, they are authentic, they play great, they have style, and their songs stand the test of time.

15MotörheadMotörhead were an English heavy metal band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister, who was the sole constant member; guitarist and songwriter Larry Wallis; and drummer Lucas Fox. The band's harsh vocals and fast paced tempos helped inspire speed metal and more.

We think of Motorhead, we think of "Ace Of Spades." we think of Motorhead again, and we think of Lemmy. We think of Motorhead a third time, and we don't think of anything because "Ace Of Spades" and Lemmy is all Motorhead is.

16ChevelleChevelle is an American rock band that formed in 1995 in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Illinois. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler, Sam Loeffler and Joe Loeffler.

Why would these guys write a song about American Idiots if they are American? Oh... now I now why...

Chevelle is amazing! Should be in the top ten instead of paramore. These guys truly rock!
