The Strokes kicks all of those bands' asses. Definitely the BEST band of the 21st century
The Strokes wipe the floor with these other bands! Great melodies, Great lyrics, Great guitars, drums, and a distinct style that cannot be replicated without someone saying "That sounds like the Strokes. "
The Strokes deserve much more recognition on this list. Most bands on here are horrible.
The Offspring ROCKS! What more can I say? Best band ever!
Dexter's voice is amazing! They really should be in the top ten.
One of the best rock bands ever. Should be inside the top ten, also can't wait until they release their new album.
They deserve a much better place, They're one of the current best-known rock band. Their songs are all awesome, although they don't change their style as much as other bands in their albums, They make very catchy songs.
If you still haven't heard any song, try "You're gonna go far, kid"
It is such un underrated band... Its a great band. Slash and Duff (both ex-GN'R) become this band fantastic. Listen to "Slither" and "Fall To Pieces" ;)
Not even compared to the bands listed here... the band affected all of the others listed musically, guitarist officially one of the best of all times, vocalist too... their lyrics are meaningful beyond the boundaries of music, so is their lifestyle, which is rare these days (some of them)...
How is this not a top ten band. Their song Revelry is awesome. Use someboby is an american classic. It was a hit before. Everyone knows the kings of leon.
Way better than all those other bands up there, their debut album went diamond... Not many of the other bands have done that on this list..
TH is the best forever! Their music, their song and Bill's voice, it's all perfect!
HOW COULD NO ONE NOTICE THAT THE BEST BAND OF ALL TIME IS MIA? Awesome band. Even though Ronnie left, he's in a better band now. Craig's okay... No matter what it's not about the band members it's about the music they make, which is pure genius. Screamo bands for the win!

AIC is not the only band that I think are more deserving to be in the top 10 but they are one of my all time favorite bands.
awesome vocalist. and the lyrics are very good in most of the songs. pls try to listen joker and the thief song its is really kick ass
English music is the best, all these english greats that are stuck down here like oasis and kasabian is a joke. Nothing else compares to english rock
Why the hell is Kasabian AND Oasis this low. Oasis is one of the most talked about bands when you think of rock and kasabian is able to sell out the 02 arena and perform and sound like they do on the album.
Eddie Cardona Jr (SlyFoxHound) has an amazing voice and him and every other band member are awesome! Every song has a great meaning and just can't be turned off.
SIYR is the greatest band of all time. Once you hear Homies Unite or SlyFox and the Crious Cat you'll fall in love with them
A Day To Remember is simply one of the best modern rock bands (and I would even go as far to say one of the best bands in music generally) that I've heard. They can do both modern rock songs as well as heavy metal/screamo songs perfectly - and sometimes they combine both musical styles into the same song! "I'm made of wax Larry - what are you made of? " and "Over My Head" are examples of their modern rock songs whereas on the other hand "Sticks and Bricks" and "2nd Sucks" are examples of their heavy metal/sceamo songs. Overall they are an amazing band and shouldn't be ignored!
