41EraserheadsEraserheads is a Filipino rock band formed in 1989. Consisting of Ely Buendia, Marcus Adoro, Buddy Zabala and Raimund Marasigan, the band became one of the most successful, most influential, critically acclaimed, and significant bands in the Philippine music history.

Maybe you do not know this, but this is truly a great band.

God, I hope you are kidding me. This is a terrible band... At best.

42RadioheadRadiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

I'm listening to "Lucky". No band here comes close to this display of godly music. Best band not only for the 90's. Perhaps the whole damn century.

Did I seriously have to add this on the list? Why don't more people like radiohead?

I wouldn't call them hard rock, I'd put them on the top ten list for 90's bands easily though

43B'z
44KISSKiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

Are you kidding me they owned the 70's they ruled the 80's the rock the 90's so how the hell can they be so far down

Kiss is terrible. Gene Simmons thinks rock is dead. They need to be further down.

It's because believe it or not but rock is dead now its about heavy metal or death metal times are changing music is evolving and now everything is going to bull like pop #revivemusichistory

God of thunder steel rocks my world

45D'erlanger
46DioDio was an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 and led by vocalist Ronnie James Dio, after he left Black Sabbath with intentions to form a new band with fellow former Black Sabbath member, drummer Vinny Appice.

With songs like "Shame on the night", Dio should be in the top 20 in the very least.

47Mr. Big

Mr. Big had a very good song and a great musician like we now Erick Martin, Paul Gilbert, Billy Sheehan, Pat Torpey, and Richie kotzen who replaced Paul in 1997

The song that Mr.big makes are the best because metals and other music are good to listen but song that has a good meaning with a little melody mix with rock is the best and only few band like Mr.big has it

48SilverchairSilverchair were an Australian rock band, which formed in 1992 as Innocent Criminals in Merewether, Newcastle with the line-up of Ben Gillies on drums, Daniel Johns on vocals and guitars, and Chris Joannou on bass guitar.

How in the world is Silverchair not on this list. Amazing Aussie band!

49Breaking BenjaminBreaking Benjamin is a American post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in 1998. The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals). The Ex-Members included Chad Szeliga (Drums), Aaron Fink (Guitar) and Mark Klepaspi (Bass). ...read more.

Breaking Benjamin is the BEST! Enough said!

50Jane's Addiction

Should be in the top 10 easily. One of 90's hard rocks biggest influences

One of the bet not as good as red hot chilli peppers but still good

Perry Ferrell's work with Jane's and Porno for Pyros must make the ten! This is the music that actually paved the way for Nirvana and Soundgarden, both bands that get WAY more props!

51RammsteinRammstein is a German Neue Deutsche Härte and Industrial Metal band consisting of Till Lindemann (vocals), Richard Kruspe (guitar), Paul Landers (guitar), Oliver Riedel (electric bass), Christoph Schneider (drums) and Christian Lorenz (keyboard), that formed in 1994 in Berlin . ...read more.

Nothing like German hard rock/metal

There is no better industrial music anywhere.

52AnthraxAnthrax is an American thrash metal band from New York City, formed in 1981 by guitarist Scott Ian and bassist Dan Lilker.

Anthrax was a much better band than anyone else on this list. I mean, Tool? Seriously? Anthrax had great metal music that was good without being pretentious.

53Andra and the BackBone
54OasisOasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

Oasis should top this list. Noel and liam Gallagher, their lyrics, their vocals, the instruments. They make amazing music. They're the best band of the 90s!

Noel continued to pump out great music all throughout oasis' career, and still writes music today.

They're impact on the world is top-10 material at least.

55SlayerSlayer is an American thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California, formed in 1981 by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King.

Consistent and heavy, never changed their sound for the populat vote. Slayer is Slayer and always will be.

56IncubusIncubus is an American rock band from Calabasas, California. The band was formed in 1991 by vocalist Brandon Boyd, lead guitarist Mike Einziger, and drummer Jose Pasillas while enrolled in Calabasas High School and later expanded to include bassist Alex "Dirk Lance" Katunich, and Gavin "DJ Lyfe" Koppell; ...read more.

Play any song any time of Incubus and I'm a happy man..

57Collective SoulCollective Soul is an American rock band originally from Stockbridge, Georgia. Now based in Atlanta, the group consists of lead vocalist Ed Roland, rhythm guitarist Dean Roland, bassist Will Turpin, drummer Johnny Rabb and lead guitarist Jesse Triplett.

More talent than most of the Grunge bands listed, they just came out at the wrong time, with their best music. Definitely in the top ten.

Collective Soul is way too low on this list. They are a top 10 band of the 1990's

58WeezerWeezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.

This band was totally original and had some of the catchiest songs ever written.

WHY IS THIS NOT HIGHER UP?!? Most of these bands aren't even from the 90's!

The Blue Album ALONE should be enough reason they should be in the top 10. But then we also get Pinkerton AND The Green Album!

59HelloweenHelloween is a German power metal band founded in 1984 in Hamburg, Northern Germany. The band is a pioneering force in the power metal genre, and their second and third studio albums, Keeper of the Seven Keys: Part I and Part II, are considered masterpieces of the genre.

Legendary band!... For me the coolest and the happiest band ever. It should be so hard to fit each concept. But they made it.

Just an incredible band that makes metal sound fresh!

'Wind mill' is one of the best song

'Wind mill' is one of the best song

It's the best band that is out there. There is no band like them. You really have to listen to them. They brought out the song which is the best that I have heard which is "It's the end of the world" it's the best!

Greatest band of all time! Incredible music and lyrics. Hits like "Losing my religion" and so many others changed a generation. A band that is timeless, will never be forgotten.

Greatest band since ever. Incredible music and lyrics. Hits like "Losing my religion" and so many others changed a generation. I have no words to describe them, really, it�'s a pitty that new youth may not have the opportunity to listen to them. Different and unexpected, I very much recommend them.
