Best Hard Rock Bands of the 90s
The Contenders: Page 2XW
Honestly, I was surprised how low Manson was. He was such a controversial figure for 90s Rock. Even to this day I love his stuff from the 90s, and find it almost a perfect way to describe 90s Rock and metal. Manson was the perfect 90s rock star, he should be higher up on the list easily.
Marilyn Manson should definitely be at least in the top 10. HE DOMINATED THE 2ND HALF OF THE 90'S DAMN IT! - ComaWhite21
Should definitely be number 1 best band ever for sure more famous than most bands on this list
Too low marilyn on this listV4 Comments
They have very many hits and deserve number 1
The offspring is my all time favorite band. I reckon the guitar work is just magnificent
Top 10 no problem. Smash and Americana? Both in the '90s.
The Offspring have a lot of great songsV1 Comment
I haven't been listening to these guys for very long, but like everyone says the more you listen the better they get. I agree.
Just listen to them. You will know why
Important things from DT they make unsual music in rock paths of course...V1 Comment
One of the best modern rock band
Perfect blend of quiet and meaningful lyrics to relax to and hardcore scream an heavy riffs to get you pumped up for a big game or a workout set.
The deftones r a really hard band but there also very melodic I love them they deserve a ranking
Even the new albums that they release are amazing. To this day, still the best live band I've ever seen!
The best then failing nowV3 Comments
Definitely leopard has to be one of the best bands of all time!
One of my all time favorite. bands. These guys rocked rocked till you dropped
Dec leopard is and wI'll ALWAYS be my number ONE! Not only are they gorgeous they are very talented.V1 Comment
A great band with lots of different music styles throughout their whole discography; started with rock and now they are both rock and electronic music, since they started to change their music since the album Black Holes and Revolutions. They are still active today, with their latest album being The 2nd Law. They are one of the few bands that started good and gone to the better, lasting throughout time. Their debut album, Showbiz, has a great rock song called "Sunburn". Have a look for their music!
I love Muse, but I don't think they count as a 90s band, because they only released one album in 1999.V4 Comments
It's because they're not a 90's band. They were around since 1970 really. And they only had a couple of hits in the 90's. They're luck to even be on this list. But as for best rock bands of all time, they'd be higher (probably).
HOW COULD YOU PLACE AEROSMITH AT 28 IT SHOULD BE AT TOP 5 THEY DESERVE BEING THAT HIGH AND WHAT CRAP IS THIS NIRVANA BEING PLACED number 1? He's NOT A HARD ROCK HEAVY METAL ARTIST!
Most Of These Bands Are Grunge Not Hard Rock
Even Heavy Metal Is on this list
I thought this is meant to be Hard Rock not Grunge/Metal/Punk or Alternative
Why is Bush at 96? Some of the best singles of the mid 90's. This list is ridiculous. Butthole Surfers ahead of Bush and Three Days Grace? Really?
Amazing guitarist & singer x'D the girls are just fantastic, rocking out & they r very known from their popular song 'barracuda' wats better is that they r talented sister c: I deserve to be higher
They have definitely get to be high up. They had so many iconic songs and a wide range of styles. At the point of the album Angel Dust they were one of the most listened to bands at that time. They were huge. Internal disputes eventually ruptured the band and ended an immense set of albums. Mike Patton is a genius though!
They should belong to top 10, very unique band... Don't know how to describe them.. But they rock hard with their unique style... You should listen to them if you are a band member
The albums The Real Thing and Angel Dust are definitely 90's classics! Very talented yet obscure band.
Just can't be any better.V6 Comments
Great band when you see them liveV1 Comment
Woah why is it on 49? With hallowed be thy name, fear of the dark it should be on top three at least!
Bloody hell, how can one of the greatest "hard rock" bands be this low on the list... Behind many bands that are not regarded as hard rock at all?
I mention Nirvana, Green day, Red hot chilli peppers and Pearl Jam just to mention a few! This bands aren't even hardrock, what are they doing on this list?
Greatest band music and lyrics totally of all time
Iron maiden must not be on 28 -.-V2 Comments
Well. The fact that they are this far down, even though they aren't a 90s band, shows that most people have a terrible taste in music. Seriously the greatest band of maybe all time
They are this far down because they aren't a 90s band, they shouldn't be on this list at all, duh.V2 Comments
More on the metal side, but you can classify them as hard rock. Beautifully poetic, deep lyrics combined with heavy, energetic instrumentals is just what's needed for a great band.
One of a kind sound that is still classic, but all of the top 25 bands are legit
Released 4 albums in 2000s as opposed to 1 in the 90s.V3 Comments
Most influential band in my life. The charisma depth and rawness of Ed especially back in the throwing copper days to me has never been surpassed
Throwing copper changed the direction of the entire industry. Remember it was that or hootie and the blowfish at the time
I saw Live at South Park Meadows in Austin in 1995. It is still the best concert I've ever seen.
Simple and well done. Very good lyrics!V2 Comments
