The Top Ten

Green Day
Had some good songs this year, a lot of popular rock bands really lost it this year, matchbox 20's new stuff is terrible!


2Linkin Park
Green Day & Linkin Park are my 2 favourite bands of all time... BUT
I love linkin Park the most and I think it should be on the first cause this year it is growing, its new album UNWANTED TRUTH is just awesome and the last one LIVING THINGS was also awesome... So please make it on the first... THanks...
Man how can this best band be on number 3!
Linkin Park has brought their hit album LIVING THINGS This year!
This band should be above all other bands!
Linkin park is world's 1st band from 2009 to 2011... But in 2012 it came on 2nd no...

3Dave Matthews Band

4Matchbox Twenty

5No Doubt

6The Killers
WOOT the killers invented class

7Van Halen


9One Direction
Why is this even on the list?


They should be number one people
This is the best band EVER! They deserve to be in the top 3..

Train is the best of all time man
Drive by is awesome

The Contenders

I like these guys so much because they're unique in a way, with a special kind of percussion thing and how their first album, Aim and Ignite, was nearly flawless. Nobody makes albums like that anymore.
Fun. Will soon be amazing.


How is this not number one?

12Maroon 5
Hello! M5 not in the list? 3 tip thrre singles.

Its one of the best bands they have nice songs like pieces, already over pt2, breath into me, let go and shadows and I think they should be from the the top 5! Trust me you will not regret listening to them

14Black Veil Brides
They should be in the top 5.
How they can be below One Direction? One Direction Sucks.
Their songs has meaning. They give a wonderful message to people who get bullied bu someone. Music is just an epic.

Love their sound and interesting lyrics. Secrets is an amazing song.

Skillet is the best band out there right now. They should be #1


18You Me at Six

To me, this is a great band! Should be at the top, especially after their last album Vice Verses. They keep getting better year by year!

20Relient K

21Thousand Foot Krutch

Aw I love this band! Hayley Williams has an absolutely amazing voice, I could listen to their music all day!
Talk about influence! Their music never fails to catch attention!

Best band in Asia that fight their way to the top. It consist the best singer in korea, Junsu who won award after award for his musical. Main singer from past band TVXQ, jaejoong and yoochun
