Good melodies are hard to find beyond Green Day and Simple Plan. These guys nailed it with Just The Girl and Happy Birthday.

204 We Are the In Crowd
205 Angels & Airwaves

May not have musically skilled band members, but still great. - yanri888

206 Dead by April

People don't know what music is all about, especially modern music. When I was clicked on this list I expected them to be at least in the top ten, but... I'm just ashamed. Many bands out here aren't even modern. Dead by April music is a new generation: Modern Melodic Pop Metal (with screaming, synths). Is there any band that makes this kind of music? No! Still people vote for bands that are crap. Vote for this band! In case you haven't heard of them (who hasn't), check the songs "More Than Yesterday", "Losing You", "Calling" and "Trapped". After listening these songs, I can assure you you'll change your mind.

When it comes to MODERN music we should talk about these guys. Dba is SO awesome, their mix of Electronica and Pop with Metal sounds so perfect. The screams associate with the poppish vocals and the lyrics all go about positivity. They are my icon, I like all of their albums, just feel so bad Jimmie isn't in the band anymore :(... But, anyways Dead by april rocks, just don't get it why people don't support them. What is the reason man? I think its because they're not so popular,... Serious folks! You vote for the bands that are popular even if they don't have damn talent. People don't have good taste in music nowadays in my opinion (don't get angry its true! ). Just listen to the song "Losing You" and you'll know why Dead by April. So come on people vote for them PLEASE! Because they are the ones that deserve it.

These guys are just so damn amazing, their music is beautiful and also rocking. The singing associated with the epic screams... Along with the instrumentals of techno mixed with rock... I don't see why they are so underrated X(

Awesome band! These guys know about MODERN MUSIC. Just listen to them, you will understand.

207 Lostprophets Lostprophets

Lostprophets were the band which introduced me to the world of rock and they had the potential to become one of the greatest rock bands around, I was shocked and ashamed to hear about the split.

They're good, but their singer is beyond sick. - Evant

Simply one of the best band of all time. Can't believe it is not in the top 30, it's at 196th. Voices and your not alone and amazing songs

211 Secrets

The best band on this list.

The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitarist), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and Bass), and Richard ...read more.

This is actually my third favorite band of all time, it is 10 times better than any band on this list, but it shouldn't be on this list because Endless River doesn't count.

Three generations are already 'lost' by Pink Floyd...

Of course! The new stupid generation doesn't know who Pink Floyd were! Just go and listen to "The final cut" maybe you learn a few about music...

Best band all time

218 Collective Soul Collective Soul Collective 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.

Are you kidding me? Collective Soul is at 210! Collective Soul is one of the greatest modern rock bands ever! They still have a classic rock sound. Shine rocks hard and has a nice groove to it. The world I know is one of the most powerful songs I have ever heard! It has an amazing music video. They should at Least be in the top 30.

Collective Soul should at least be in top 10.

219 Within Temptation Within Temptation Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in April 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.

Great Dutch band with another gorgeous and really talented singer and great musicians!

I love her voice. This band has everything, I don't understand why it's in a low position.

This band should be much higher on this list, Excellent music in a similar vein to Evanesence and Nightwish but much better. I would put this band in the top 10 easily.

220 Stereophonics

How are they not making at least the top 20?
