The Top Ten

Best hard rock band of all time


Doesn't anybody hear the way acdc plays? Acdc created hard rock with a bluesy soul to the mix.Also, their music is clean and not distorted like Metallica. This is why I think I'm some cases ACDC can be underrated sometimes.

2Led Zeppelin
Great band, many underrated songs!
Trampled Underfoot
Candy Store Rock
Poor Tom
Just the best! The pioneers of Hard Rock.. With Robert Plant's vocals and Jimme Page's heavenly guitar.. With Bonham on drums and JP Jones on bass.. None of even todays greatest have a chance against them.. Led Zep forever!

3Deep Purple
Deep Purple is the best rock band all time!
The best here is purple, but at all: Axel Rudi Pell
They are the best - a band of masters.


4Guns N Roses
Dude acdc should be behind the first 4 bands here they are the real deal yeah what acdc had 2 great albums ill give them that they had 2 good albums but even those albums the songs all sound the same I mean look at Guns N' Roses or lz they don't have make songs that all sound identical they can make all different kinds of music acdc wasnt even that influential acdc and Metallica are way overrated best hard rock bands 1. led zeppelin 2. Guns N' Roses 3. nirvana 4. Aerosmith 5. Metallica 6. Queen 7. red hot chili peppers 8. Pink Floyd 9. rush 10. kiss

Freddie Mercury
Brian May
John Deacon
Roger Taylor
They have the best ock songs like, we will rock you, we are the champions, bohemia radspody and anothers great songs, and who will ever forget the legendary freedie mercury, brian may, roger taylor and john deacon.


7Alice Cooper

They are neither hard rock nor classic rock.


9Motley Crue
Motley Crue deserves to be number 1 just saying


10The Jimi Hendrix Experience

The Contenders

11Def Leppard

12The Rolling Stones



15Black Sabbath
Sabbath was awesome with Ozzy, but their best two albums were Dio's "Heaven and Hell" and "Dehumanizer". S/be higher on the list!
They're the iconic band of this genre.

16Uriah Heep
Can anybody tell me, why Uriah Heep misses?!


18Thin Lizzy


Kiss is by far the best band and none can take their place!
