Top Ten Best Bands of All TimeTop ten bands of all time. Ok, it can be anything as long as it's a group of people not a solo singer.
The Top Ten
Why isn't the worlds best at #1. They pretty much have 90% of the worlds popular music records that nobody will ever break. Not to mention they have held these records for almost 50 years, and they have written almost 80% of they're songs, except for the occasionally a 50's remakes that sounded pretty cool to me, and all 4 members went off and got as many number one hits combined as they did in The Beatles. - westofohio
Yes it's so cool man I love it hope you guys see this from the Beatles it's so cool love it I heard all songs love it like my favorite is all you need is love its cool just wanted to let you know I am in Oakland right now and hope you see this Beatles bye!
I don't know why there is an indecision regarding this. The Beatles were, are and will always be the greatest band to ever grace this world. They are the best. Period.
John, Paul, George, and Ringo are all great.V 39 Comments
Obviously the Beatles is at number 1. I'm not going to try and change that, they deserve all of the hype they get, they are probably 1 of if not the most talented and original songwriters of all time.
But Queen... Oh MAN.
QUEEN IS AMAZING.
They are so unpredictable, so iconic, so recognizable and just so strangely addictive that it hurts.
Queen is a band that makes you feel how a bend should make you feel: whatever you want. Their songs can be happy, sad, angry, really whatever you want them to be.
Queen is, in my opinion, the greatest band that will ever exist.
The Beatles are the best band, but Queen is not far behind. Many classics have been produced by them. Including Bohemian Rhapsody, Don't Stop Me Now, The Show Must Go On, We Are The Champions, We Will Rock You, Somebody To Love. But out of all of those, The Show Must Go On is the best.
I personally think Queen is a little bit more interesting than The Beatles. You never guess what will come next and It's a blast to listen to.
No explanation needed just... QueenV 29 Comments
Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog, Heartbreaker, Ramble On, Rock and Roll, All My Love, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Good Times Bad Times, Whole Lotta Love, Dazed and Confused, Communication Breakdown, Immigrant Song.
I like this band a lot. In my opinion not the second best but very popular and most people consider it too be one of the best.
Zeppelin gives you a bit of everything. Jimmy Page is a guitargod, no one writes riffs like him. This is rock n roll at its best.
It's not common to find 4 legendary musicians in one band, and it's very unlikely there will be another Led Zeppelin.V 19 Comments
I'd always get into a band for a little bit and then forget about them the next week, I got into Pink Floyd and can not stop listening to them, I can listen to all their songs over and over and it gets even better
These kind of songs can enter to your soul and brain. - savau015fulau015fkaratau015f
If this band isn't somewhere on your top ten list, regardless of where, you are clearly not an intelligent human being. no excuses - ronijohnson
Best band ever no questionV 15 Comments
why did I have to add this item up? metallica is one of the greatest bands ever. I thank james hetfield and lars ulrich for creating a band this amazing. - munkee_linc97
awesome band! extraordinary music. guitars, drums, vocals, all combine perfectly to create the best metal band in the world with the best music. should be at least at the top 10.
As a band they have done it all, ground-breaking sound when they first came out, become the king of their genre, break into the mainstream, experimenting with their sound and facing their inner problem, and now coming out strong and kicking ass. Few band reach this far
This Band Has Reached An Dangerously Awesome Level Of Talent...V 11 Comments
Under My Thumb, Gimme Shelter, Jumpin Jack Flash, Brown Sugar, Sympathy for the Devil, Satisfaction, Ruby Tuesday.
How are these legends behind amateurs like Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold?
Mom loves this band, grandpa too, I like it, this band can be a beast in fame, and fandom.
Because Linkin Park is a the bestV 6 Comments
Yes I may be a teenager but my opinion still matters. Kurt Donald cobain is one of the major influences of my life. Kurt said that people read to much in his music and try's to make it what it is not, but true nirvana fans do not have to have an explanation on what certain things in his music meant we just know that when we listen to it we are at home and have a place to fit in. - Anarchy8675309
Well, I just have always liked the band and the style, but I don't think it's the best band around, musically it's not very complex.
Nirvana's songs can become a life philosophy for somebody. All of the Nirvana songs are special. - savau015fulau015fkaratau015f
The greatest grunge band of all time.V 7 Comments
Apparently, Linkin Park is Alternative Metal. And why Tokio Hotel is in the 1st place? They're just overrated!
the combination of Hip hop with Rock is outstanding...
This is good band, their songs is very easy listening. - deni4
Very awesome and outstanding songs.mixture of rock and rap rocksV 18 Comments
I love AC/DC there the top band that ever lived - rocknrollhorselover
Why did they move it from sixth to ninth?
It's a offense that the pseudopunk band of GD is 17, they deserve 30 place or below, they are a popsish band like jonas brothers but with more media paying attention to them
No they are not if you listen to there music then you would change your mind because they are the best band alive and they don't care what people say and a lot of other bands where skinny jeans and have make up on these people don't they have jeans shorts and t-shirts on and Green Day has make up and all that stuff on not jeans and the guitarist is not like Angus, Angus goes around the stage doing cool things while Green Days people are just standing there. - rocknrollhorselover
AC/DC saved my life.V 6 Comments
Green Day should be in the top ten. They have songs of many different genres, such as Punk Rock, Pop Punk, Alternative Rock, Power Pop, Garage Rock, Acoustic, Ska and even Screamo. Tre Cool is probably one of the best drummers on Earth, and Mike Dirnt is probably one of the best bassists ever. Billie Joe's lyrics were good at first, but they just keep getting better and better. His vocals are also improving over time. Some of his guitar solos (especially from the early albums) are absolutley insane. They have sold over 75 million albums worldwide, making them one of the best selling artists of all time. 'Dookie' is certified as diamond in the USA, and it is the best selling punk album and also the 57th best selling album of all time. They have stood the test of time, as they have been together for 30 years. They are also one of the most influential bands ever, inspiring many other artists such as Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Lady Gaga, Busted, McFly, Steve Rushton, ...more - Legendary_Green_Day
Green day, they are the back talking anarchy type of band. To me they are the definition of rebellious teenagers. They are also one of the most rebellious bands to have come around so far. And they are the band to turn to when you either want to cry, or just be alone and say f the world. And we all seem to love it and always will. - Anarchy8675309
Green Day is an American punk rock band. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool.
DOOKIE AND AMERICAN IDIOT ROCK! They basically make political rock.V 12 Comments
Something is wrong with the people that have been voting here so far... Chester is undoubtedly the greatest. I mean, who else can do a full 17-seconds-scream AND cover an Adele-song in such an absolutely breathtaking way? Check out the outro of Faint @ Rock am Ring 2007 and come back to the voting afterwards!
They are in 19th place? they deserve much more! Run DMC, Tenacious D, Avenged Sevenfold, Symphony X, D12 and Bee Gees before GN'R!? I'm not trying to say those bands are bad, BUT GUNS N' ROSES IS MUCH BETTER THAN THEM! - rock2metal
Guns and roses, hm hard to explain. They give you a sense of what was and is to come although they are no longer together they will forever continue to enrich people's lives. - Anarchy8675309
Slash Slash Slash - EgV 5 Comments
Definitely the best band. Iron Maiden, you opened my doorway to heavy metal. - IronSabbathPriest
Iron maiden easily kicks tokio hotel's arse. At least Beatles should be number 1 or Led Zeppelin - metallipotter
Its done well to be number 12, but should be much much higher.
Quite simply, they rock!V 7 Comments
Coldplay should at least be in the top five. The creative, beautiful melodies that have calming qualities are now, in this darn decade, unique to Coldplay. I remember listening to Yellow as a little girl. Remebering the tune and coming back to remember it just before end of year exams. So calming and beautiful. The first time I heard Viva la Vida, the boring car trip suddenly wasn't so boring. And Paradise. I was literally in paradise when this song started playing. There are many, many more songs of theirs that I love, but these ones made my childhood so worth remembering.
I cannot fault this band. Four down to earth, creative, talented and humble guys who make amazing and diverse tracks that have beautiful lyrics and kick-ass riffs. I know every word of Viva La Vida and I can't help belting it out every time it comes on the radio. Chris, Johnny, Will and Guy, I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!
Hands down consistently the best songs of any band ever. Coldplay could ride their whole career offa one song, any song, throw all the songs in a bag, shake it up, pick one, it can hold it's own weight. The emotions the musicality the truth the dynamic the instruments the flow the feeling the originality the creativity the understanding it's just, they are unmatched and they are from the soul.
Current best! 2016 best!V 26 Comments
Okay every fan of any kind of rock music (metal and alternative included) should have every rock band in front of idiotic one direction.
Why the heck is Green Day above Rush? - BrideiMacBella
You know what they say gotta go fast
Awesome, but underrated band. - IronSabbathPriestV 5 Comments
One of my personal favorites but not better than the rest of the bands listed.
Baba o reily, my generation, I can see for miles, pinball wizard. These songs are all legendary rock songs and are made by one of the best bands in the world. The who. They even Inspired back mason, drummer of Pink Floyd to start learning drums. That's how good they are.
Too low...Daltrey invented Power Pop and they were one of the firsr hard rock bands - Rocker00V 3 Comments
How the hell are One Direction above them?
Radiohead are the best band with the most original music. No one else has done a 'Kid A' and I don't think they ever will. 1D is a generic pop boy band. They don't have lyrics like: "Maybe you'll be president, but know right from wrong" or "We are accidents waiting to happen"
I've noticed that smart people like Radiohead. The less intelligent people think they're 'too weird' 'too boring' or 'too whiny'. If you can listen to The Tourist while looking at the sky and say 'too whiny, ' you are a robot.
Bon Jovi, Linkin Park, Dragonforce, guns and roses don't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as Radiohead. Beatles, Rolling Stones, Nirvana, R.E.M, Muse, Cure, Elvis Costello, Hendrix Experience, Zeppelin, Ramones, Sex Pistols and The Clash sort of do.
Radiohead is a group of the worlds true geniuses that have figured how the science and meaning of sadness, loneliness, fear and death.V 11 Comments
Avenged sevenfold gives you a will to be weird. You may have different styles and things to say than others but that's normal. Don't be afraid to be yourself and avenged sevenfold along with nirvana gives you that. I mean he'll where do you think artists these days got their inspiration. - Anarchy8675309
These guys don't care what other people think about them or their music. It is addicting. My favorite band personally. They should be at #1
Best ever band... I love this band because they guys are best friends first...
The best modern metal band.V 3 Comments
Black Sabbath is one of the most influential bands in rock history and one of the bands that inspired many of the bands that we have today. And the original singer (Ozzy Osbourne) is not called the "Prince of Darkness" or the "Godfather of Heavy Metal" for nothing. They should be much higher. They rock and they are the Godfather of Metal! Long Live Black Sabbath!
Thank you Sabbath for bringing us metal. - IronSabbathPriest
First metal band ever. And one of the best ever as well. - Caleb9000V 2 Comments
Aerosmith needs to be higher. They are the "Bad Boys from Boston" and they rule! They got so many great albums/hits and they are a rock legend! Definitely one of the best and most influential bands in the world! Aerosmith forever!
AEROSMITH IS THE GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIME! Why is Tokio Hotel in front of them, I don't even know who they are! - SuperCharged
All the list is ok, but Aerosmith needs to be higher! - rock2metal
Some amazing hits that get you singing passionately alongV 2 Comments
The only Maroon 5's song I like is Daylight, the rest are junk. I wonder how could this above band like OneRepublic, Thirty Seconds to Mars, The Script, American Authors, Daughtry, Simple Plan, Train and Imagine Dragons. - RichardSSG
Soulful songs with great lyrics.
How are they behind One Direction? This is complete crap. Maroon 5 is the best pop band of all time. The only pop bands that compare are the Bee Gees, Coldplay, and OneRepublic - jake_m1575
I admit, Maroon 5 used to be good.
They are far from good now.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, go and listen to "Harder To Breathe", then listen to "Sugar" (Listen to sugar at your own risk, it is a terrible song). Maroon 5 has went downhill on a 90 degrees angle.
Hey seriously I disagree with you. If you think that they are getting bad because of the song sugar you're wrong. Because just because you don't like the song doesn't mean other people won't. I personally love the song sugar and have it downloaded on my Samsung phone. It is a pop and I love pop songs because they are catchy and upbeat and my favourite kind of songs! So just because you don't like the song doesn't me we won't and it also doesn't mean that they are getting bad because lots of people like me love that song! - LuLup
Maroon 5 in number really, this is a funny? - Santi12V 7 Comments
