Top 10 Best Modern Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 5XW
THEY'RE FIRST ALBUM WAS OKAY, THEY'RE SECOND RECORD HAD ALL THEIR SINGLES ON THE RADIO AND WERE TOP TEN ON THE U. S ACTIVE ROCK CHART. THEIR FIRST SINGLE "SICK" WAS #1, THEIR SECOND SINGLE "THE COLLAPSE" WAS #3, THEIR THIRD SINGLE "CRITICIZE" WAS #1 AS WELL, THEY'RE LAST SINGLE "ALIVE" MADE IT TO #6. THEY'VE IMPROVED a lot IN THE SECOND ALBUM. This band will indeed make an impact on rock with their upcoming third album, which is expected to be released around september and october time and will contain up to 12-13 songs. GO ALL THE WAY!
I've seen Adelitas Way three times. These guys give 100% at every performance. First album was great. Second album is amazing. Going to see them again at Uproar 2012. They will be a headliner in the near future because they are just that good.
Don't know who these guys are? Go listen to Home School Valedictorian before voting. Mind blowing stuff.
Best of the modern rock bands.V1 Comment
What! I didn't even see Marilyn in this list, he is the best artist/work of art ever. Also a very interesting and intelligent person. You should be in 1st I mean come on people his music is a pure beauty.
Manson is one of the most influential musicians in history and I think its insulting that he is number 96. If every other artist in this list was running against manson during the manson hit years they all would have lost.
In my opinion, they have great lyrics and they are underrated in their genre, because people think they look "weird".
Best Ever. Needs to be top 50 thoughV6 Comments
Soundgarden ' rocks, along with Alice in Chains, they're the best band from 90's!V1 Comment
Personally I don't think they should be too high up because there old guitarist and drummer weren't too talented at what they do but since they left the new members seem to have a lot of potential so maybe we will get some more complicated playing put of them
I don't think their genre is necessarily rock, but they definitely deserve a higher ranking on every list they are on recently. The old hits and the new album are too good to be this low.
I love panic with all my heart but personally I don't understand why they're on this list, they're not a rock and roll band and they haven't been in 10 years
Brendon! At The UrieV17 Comments
This is some pretty hardcore Christian music. And most of the lyrics are taken directly from scripture which is amazing! Overall a really great band!
They are good when you are tired of hearing songs about drugs and sex listen to disciple
Things left unsaid should be enough prof that this band should be higher
I recently started hearing some of their music on my Pandora, and honestly, it's beautiful. I was shocked on how much I liked them when I found them. If anyone here is looking for a good band, I suggest search this!
DCFC is the best indie band out there and deserves to be in top 5. Excellent lyrics, music, melody and vocals are trademarks of this band. This band can belt out piano driven songs that creep slowly up and rise to a crescendo towards the end ( I will posses your heart, Soul meets the body )
How are Wolfmother so far down? They are amazing!
Best modern rock band after Muse - Mcflupy
Awesome vocalist. and the lyrics are very good in most of the songs. please try to listen joker and the thief song its is really kick assV2 Comments
Black Sabbath invented Heavy Metal.
What is wrong with you people... Black Sabbath... Modern? They're low on this list, because they invented heavy metal. So they aren't a modern rock band.
It's a great band. Why not higher on the list?
"Paranoid Iron Man" is the best!V3 Comments
My Favorite band of all time. They're real and are really versatile with their sound. They can go from hardcore rock with screaming vocals, to "pop-punk" that doesn't sound like a kid is singing it, to really relatable powerful acoustic ballads, to softer or just straight normal rock (and roll). Vocals as well as creativity are amazing.
•Hard hitting rock songs: The fight, warrior poet, grave digging
•great acoustic: far from home, headlights, precipice
•powerful: medicine, god and drugs
Feel good melodic rock: everything, I know the feeling
There's even a song titled let me die with a bluesy guitar riff!
Bon Jovi are still going strong, still bringing out new albums & touring, soundtrack to my life!
My favourite song writers, Jon and Richie
Their new stuff sucks, their old stuff was amazing
I love your music guysV5 Comments
They speak the truth in all of their songs. They're just really real, and I love that.V1 Comment
This list is made by teenage girls who think they are edgy listening to linkin park because they haven't moved past the eminem stage just yet
Brand new rock group consisting of Three Days Grace's old vocalist, Staind's guitarist, and Finger Eleven's drummer. Can't wait to see what the future holds for this band!
There one album is quite impressiveV1 Comment
The measure of a good song is a song that sounds good on the first listen. The measure of a great song is a song that sounds good on the first listen and then gets better every time you listen to it again. I am familiar with the music of most of the bands on this list, and I quite enjoy much of their music as well, but lyrically Switchfoot is a cut above most others. Even musically, where many modern bands fail to live up to their lofty predecessors, Switchfoot is creative both in instrumentation and production techniques. Switchfoot manages to couple meaningful lyrics with music that will stay with you. Switchfoot doesn't make good music; they make great music. Give 'em a listen sometime
Damn they should be in the top ten
In my opinion Switchfoot is the best band of all time. Their Jon Foreman's lyrics never fail to be meaningful at any given time. They have never released an album that is anything short of awesome. They definitely should be in the top ten.
They're music speaks for itself.
The longest lasting rock band out there, and still kicking ass! They are one of the BIGGEST influences on hard rock and heavy metal, bringing together the influences of In your face rock, the blues, and even classical music. The very definition of rock never seemed to be lost on them even until now. Up there With Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, this pinnacle hard rock band stands out like no other.
Purple live, nothing quite like it. AwesomeV1 Comment
U2 is the best modern band of all time. They're also probably the most known which weird how low it is on this list. Maybe it's because of the itunes thing? I don't know. Maybe it's because people don't consider it a modern band. In my opinion it is both a classic rock and a modern rock band. They are one of the few bands who have been consistently good for their career. They are still making good music. For example their most well known song, Beautiful Day, came out in 2000. If that's not modern then I don't know what is.
Six out of the top 10 bands on this list are not good and the rest aren't as good as U2.
I'm now very annoyed because most of my favourite band on this list haven't made the top 50 ah bye bye and U2 should NOT be at 187
Beast band not much better than u2 and some pizzaV2 Comments
Although their music can be very exclipt, I reallly enjoy their songs! they bring the 80's back!
Seriously why are they such low they should be in top 10. Have you heard their kids song? Awesome song ever
