Best Rock Bands / Singers of the 21st CenturyWWENARUTO
The Top TenXW
They're the best musicians ever. Sorry for my English, I'm Romanian. Linkin Park are doing art, something special. Best rock band, they most be more famous. So get more votes from you guys! - WWENARUTO
If extra-terrestrial life exists and they live like us then every living being in universe should listen to Linkin Park. LP is "band of bands". Their songs become famous very fast after released or leaked. Most Powerful rock band in NU METAL genre. I hope they return to their HYBRID THEORY & METEORA style in their 6th album because they were more successful in the NU METAL genre and can become the TITANS if they start playing HEAVY METAL.
I love linkin park.. They are the gods of 21st century music.. But guys I suggest you listen to shinedown, the whitestripes, rise against, bb who are extremely underrated here
No way are they better than Green Day, Blink 182, Sum 41, or The Red Hot Chili Peppers.V12 Comments
What a beautiful sound this band has. Cool and upbeat sometimes, as in "Hymn for the Weekend," rhythmic and beating in others, such as in "X Marks the Spot," or even emotional and slow, as in "Fix You." Chris Martin has a spectacular voice that can hit almost any sound. Their band has such an awesome, unique style of rock, original lyrics and titles, and haunting voices and melodies. I don't understand why more people don't listen to them. And it's not just the hits that are great: "Viva La Vida," "Paradise," or "Clocks. " It's every song they do: "Adventure of a Lifetime," "Birds," or "Life in Technicolor."
Why can't everyone sees just how much variety this band has
Right from the sounds that is combined with lovely acoustic guitar in Parachutes. And then beautiful piano in A Rush of Blood to the Head. The heavy synthesized X & Y, the ground-breaking Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends. Finally Mylo Xyloto, which I haven't buy, but right from Every Teardrop is A Waterfall I know it's such a kick-ass.
Many bands failed with numerous songs.
They fail only in Princess of Chine
Coldplay? Behind JB? People, grow up... This competition is for Rock Bands! Coldplay is the best!
They should be at the top. They have showed different types of music.V6 Comments
Billie Joe is an incredible and inspirational singer and songwriter. Mike Dirnt is one of the best bassists of all time and Tre Cool is the best drummer of this century. Easily the best band of the century.
They are the best band and no doubt about it. How can be bands like Train and Skillet ahead of awesome Green Day. Linkin park is very good but not like green day at least.
Green Day is the best rock band I have ever heard. Their songs, lyrics, music is just awesome. Guys please vote for Green Day. I want to see them at the top
Should be top, best band from this century a long with Blink 182, Sum 41, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, even Linkin Park.V7 Comments
Their first album was a highly refined power pop album; it played around with lots of different instruments, sound effects, and other fun musical devices while still having catchy, singable melodies and great lyrics. Their second album was wrapped up in modern trends but didn't lose its wonderful experimental edge; it celebrated the art of the album while maintaining the appeal of each individual song. I know a lot of people that like Fun. because of their eccentricities, and an equal amount of people that like Fun. because of their mass appeal. Really excited to see more fun stuff as the century progresses ^_^ - crimsonkipper
#1 Period in my mind
Nickelback Man they Are #1 no body is better in the 21st Century
Linkin Park and Coldplay Are probably the only 2 Bands in the 21st Century that might Beat Nickelback!
Then maybe Green Day but Nickelback is way Better then 90% of these Choices!
There are some Great Bands on this list
Like Linkin Park, Coldplay, Green Day, A7x, Daughtry, Simple Plan, Skillet, Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, Maroon 5, Seether, Rise Against, RHCP, Breaking Benjamin, Saliva, Matchbox 20, 30 Seconds to Mars, Jonas Brothers, and others But none Many Better the Nickelback!
How did they get ranked lower than link in park they only had like one good song
"How did they get ranked lower than link in park they only had like one good song"
This is what a ton of people say about nickelback. And I say they had no good songs
Skillet is one of my favourite band great vocals by John cooper... Great music I love all albums collide, awake, comatose, rise... All songs are awesome drummer vocals are great... It deserve number 1 place... Please vote for skillet if you have good knowledge of music...
Skillet rocks! It is my favorite band, and I love all the songs! John's singing kills... Seth's guitar is too good! Korey's keyboards are wicked... And last of all, Jen's drumming and singing are awesome... Go Skillet!
Were good but they became pop once the new decade startedV1 Comment
How do you kick someone off a list?
What, he does not make rock songs, he is not a rock band, he is a single artist, and HE SUCKS
WHAT THE HOLY SATANIC HELL ON EARTH IS GOING ON HERE?
How is he a rock star? Or a band? Where's the top 10 worst vocalists? I wanna see him on #1 there. How is Evanescence below this idiot?
How are Muse below Nickelback, Maroon 5, Coldplay, Linkin Park and even JUSTIN BIEBER. Avenged Sevenfold are the only band on this list that come close to Muse. - jimicenafromintempo
Best British rock band! They should be on the Top 10 List. By the way how the devil did JB be on the Top 10?
How the hell is JB on 15 or even in this list? And how is Evanescence BELOW the king of failure?
(Why the fck is Justin Bieber on #15? )
Evanescence is an awesome band. Amy lee has clean, angelic but powerful vocals. Their lyrics is awesome af. Whenever, I listen to them, my mind drifts off someplace else.
