143DragonforceDragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

Everybody believes through the fire and flames was their only song, but if you actually listen to their other songs, they are awesome.

144OasisOasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

With songs like Live Forever, Supersonic, Don't Look back in anger, Morning Glory and Even Wonderwall, it is unbelivieble that Oasis is'nt included on this list.

Liam Gallagher has the best rock'n'roll voice of all time and Noel Gallagher is a genius at songwriting, as well as guitarsolos with such emotion and brilliance. The whole Oasis style is very simple, but with such simpleness, still being able to create such amazing music, is absolutley genius!

145Sonic YouthSonic Youth was an American rock band from New York City, formed in 1981. Founding members Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon and Lee Ranaldo remained together for the entire history of the band, while Steve Shelley followed a series of short-term drummers in 1985, and rounded out the core line-up.

I love sonic youth. I watched nirvana interviews and he says they were a good band. I listened to them and loved them

146FoghatFoghat are an English rock band formed in London in 1971. The band is known for its prominent use of electric slide guitar in its music.

I can't believe they weren't even on this list...

148The J. Geils Band

Another underrated band that should be higher on the list. I love these guys. One of my top bands.

Their 1970-1975 stuff is as good as it gets!

These guys should be remembered for more than just "Centerfold" and "Love Stinks." Their earlier stuff, such as "Musta Got Lost" "Give it To Me" and "Whammer Jammer" ranks among some of the greatest rock I've ever heard.

149The Beach BoysThe Beach Boys are an American rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

Why are the Beach Boys so low? Their surf songs are great pop tracks, but for those who still aren't convinced, "Pet Sounds" and "SMiLE" are among the greatest albums ever. Heck, when PAUL MCCARTNEY named "God Only Knows" his favorite song, there's got to be something.

Only group to seriously challenge the Beatles at the time

Just sublime harmonys and the sound of young america in the 60's.
With God only know's one of the simplest and greatest love songs ever

150KISSKiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

ARE you kidding 2012 if you didn't see kiss with ace and peter you didn't see kiss, saw kiss first time in 1974 long beach arena opened for wishbone ash and camel 30min set, the last your they opened for anyone, saw them again 1975 forum la the tour alive came from again 1977 anaheim stadium destroyer tour again 1978 love gun tour things began to fall apart after love gun until 1996 the reunion saw them in Dallas July 7 1996 the loudest crowd I ever heard ever and I've seen them all stones zep etc. The essence of kiss is ace Peter paul gene, now was magical.

This is a BULLS*** list. This band has gone strong for over 40 years. Two-thirds of the bands ahead of them were around for relatively short lengths of time. Only a few had the quality in their song catalogs, none had the stage show.

KISS is the best band to hit the stage since The Beatles! They take you to Detroit Rock City, they will Rock and Roll All Nite if you give them the chance! Hottest band in the world! Debate over

Should definitely be at number 1

156John Cougar Mellencamp

I love this guy! He has great music and some of his songs, like Rain on the Scarecrow, are based on his own life. He should be higher on the list.
