The Top Ten

The Jackson 5
This band is simply amazing, 5 brothers pulling up a very light, meaningful album... I honestly don't wanna single out anyone of them, everyone got some talent from jackie, tito, jermaine, marlon... however young Michael Jackson is undeniably a fascination, like never before... a little kid singing far beyond his age... that's the distinction between talented, gifted and innate genuine talent, what Michael Jackson has is innate and genius, like magic... It just send you smiling with amazement all the time, he's just too good.. and... so cute


They are always number one... the guys are great... xoxo


Of course the Jackson 5 is #1! Greatest group ever, along with The Jacksons, with a number or without a number!


[Newest]They are BEST forever!

230 Seconds to Mars

3Avenged Sevenfold (A7X)
When I saw this list, I immediately thought of 30 Seconds to Mars, Blink, U2, and A7X at the top. Seeing the JACKSON 5 there was just not fair. Of course they were good, but should they really count? THey certainly don't deserve their 52% of votes while A7X exists. Listen to Beast And The Harlot by A7X and you'll know what I mean.
A7X is much better than j5 or 30 Seconds to Mars. a7x has got it all. super drumming, cool guitar solos, good vocals. the kind of things that they do requires some real skill. not like some pop artist who becomes famous overnight (and has no skill at all)
I don't think The Jackson 5 should even count. I mean... What?

A7X is the best, it goes without saying. They're better than 30 Seconds to Mars, too.

Blink! they don't take themselves to seriously, and they make amazing music! Mark, Tom, and Travis! my favorite band
Yeah tom! why?!
Although they broke up they are still my favorite band!
And they will always rock!


Love blink182. Always have done. Always will do. Even though they have split, they are still my favourite band!

5Sum 41
Awesome band! I love Still Waiting, and my fave is Pieces. I love The Sums haha
Hey retards, there's no number in Avenged Sevenfold. And yes that is their band name NOT A7X

U2 doesn't deserve this place, he should be the on 1st place. Not too loud, not too boring, just PERFECT!. Jackson 5 were very good on their time but, come on, be realistic they had their time of awesomness and that time has passed


U2 Rock, they are of course the best band of all times with a number in it... Love those guys... One is awesome With or Without You is very very beautiful I Lve U2
Best band in the World... Ever

7Three Days Grace
This band blows my MIND! They are in my top 10 favorite bands list. They Should be up higher because Adam Gontier has a awesome sexy voice that I will always remember!
Three Days Grace is the most amazing flipping band ever! I LOVE THEM!

It does not define them, much like people have trouble defining their sound. Plus its the police code for indecent exposure.


311 is the best. the names is different, but cool. just like them. down for the unity!


9Moi dix Mois
This band is pure art. Created by the gothic lolita icon mana-sama and creates a gothic metal sound with industrial effects and deep nocturnal image
I love them! They are just great!

103 Doors Down
Are you kidding me, 3 doors down is easily in top 3.
3 Doors Down is the best current band, in my belief.

The Contenders


12Maroon 5

13Nine Inch Nails
does spelling the number count?
even if trent is awesome


14Family Force 5

15Matchbox Twenty

16One Direction
They've grown musically and they have such a huge international following!
Yes I love their music!

17The Four Tops

Puff Daddy Feat. Faith Evans & 112 - I'll Be Missing You


OBVIOUS CHOICE! Although I DO love Nine Inch Nails, I gotta go with the B-52's here 'cause their first album is one of the greatest new wave/punk albums ever. There's a moon in the sky, it's called the moon... lol! It was 6060-842! And I'm waiting for you! Dial the number to call, get no answer at all. Hello? I'm sorry. Hello?! I'm sorry. HELLO?! I'm sorry. lol. And there they saw a rock, but it wasn't a rock, it was a rock lobster!


2169 Eyes
