A Day to remember is a really awesome band to get into!

82 Sleeping With Sirens

I love Kellin Quinn

Almighty rock band. Their music has altered my life. Certainly a whole world of musical boundaries expanded since.
Thunderous power with clarity within each song, their sound is unmistakable, inimitable, very personnel and finally, wonderful.

84 Smile Empty Soul Smile Empty Soul

Oh, dude... Come on!... This band is very awesome too.

85 Goo Goo Dolls Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska.
86 Chevelle Chevelle Chevelle 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.

Chevelle is so amazing, especially their old albums, Wonder What's Next and This Type Of Thinking Could Do Us In and Vena Sera

87 Motley Crue Motley Crue Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

If you are a child of the 80s, rock music is what MTV played. On that basis, this is the perfect rock band. Individually, only one of the players is truly elite (Lee). But their concerts were worth every penny, and their exploits were pure legend. The critics can hate all they like, but the Crue keeps laughing all the way to the bank.

This band is garbage. If you want good music listen to Breaking Benjamin.

Maybe not #1 but defiantly top 10. So how come down here at 99!

88 The Neighbourhood

The best of the best, come on people we all know that The Neighbourhood is the best rock band! They topped #1 in Billboard's chart in early June 2013 with their best song "Sweater Weather." The band is also know for their black and white imagery, it is a new rock band that was just formed in 2011. All my respect and love of music for this rock band, their music is open minded and great it should be #1.

89 Pixies Pixies The Pixies are an American alternative rock band formed in 1986 in Boston, Massachusetts. The group disbanded in 1993 in acrimonious circumstances, but reunited in 2004. The group currently consists of founders Black Francis, Joey Santiago, and David Lovering.

Top ten band and Black Francis is one of the great songwriters of all time.

Evanescence is one of the best bands in this world. Amy Lee has the most beautiful voice in the world and she's so special and very talented and unique. This magnificent band should be number one.

95 Jefferson Starship
96 Shinedown Shinedown Shinedown is an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2001 and founded by members Brent Smith, Brad Stewart, Jasin Todd, and Barry Kerch.

Shinedown is honestly a greater band then some of the other bands, not that it should be number one, but surly it should be higher than 73.

The band consists of bassist and lead vocalist, Tyson Ritter, lead guitarist and backing vocalist, Nick Wheeler, rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist, Mike Kennerty, and drummer Chris Gaylor.

IF we are talking American... How can the All American Rejects only be 78?

98 Queensryche Queensryche Queensrÿche is an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 in Bellevue, Washington, out of the local band the Mob.
