42ParamoreParamore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

Paramore is my number one favorite band in the whole world, and I've been listening to them since their first amazing album All We Know Is Falling. Hayley Williams is so cool and shes got an awesome singing voice and she writes her own songs. She's my hero! Paramore should actually be number one! I don't care what the haters say, Paramore rules the world!

Come on they are WAY better than 28!

48BostonBoston is an American rock band from Boston, Massachusetts, that achieved their most notable successes during the 1970s and 1980s.

44 is just an offensive number to any boston fan. almost every human on earth knows the songs more than a feeling, peace of mind, foreplay/longtime. their first album sold over 17 million albums worldwide in 1976. not even the Beatles could do that.

65th? What? By far the best band since Nirvana

Their songs have great and unique depth to them. They're not about sex and drugs and stuff. The songs and music videos are amazing. They should'nt be 31, laugh out loud.

52SlayerSlayer is an American thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California, formed in 1981 by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King.

Actually Paramore is an awesome band with real talent and real emotion. Slayer is just evil and demonic, and all they talk about is cutting up women and torturing innocent people. Death metal is disgusting and inhumane!

Slayer is not Death Metal. They are Thrash metal...

Uh way better than paramore and coldplay

Disappointing to see them so low on the list. In my opinion one of the best alternative rock band. Billy Corgans lyrics are 10/10
