104The ScriptThe Script is an Irish pop rock band formed in 2001. The band comprises keyboardist and lead vocalist Danny O'Donoghue, guitarist and vocalist Mark Sheehan and drummer Glen Power.

Wide range of song genres, Great singer. Probably the latest rock band to get to number 2 in the charts. They have also got to number 4 and their first single We Cry got to number 15. - biddiebob99

My favorite band. They are very inspirational and have amazing lyrics in every song. They don't have one song don;t love. They deserve to be number one.

Amazing lyrics in their songs and a great sound - usiddiq93

Amazing voices, lyrics + originality.

105The DoorsThe Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore.

What! Why are the doors so far below? The band which inspired millions of people and also led a revolutionization against THE MAN (for those who have watched 'school of rock'), this is unacceptable. They need to be high, high and higher.

Best band ever how is it at 67 should be number 1 can't believe one direction and Taylor swift are a head the doors influenced so many people and Jim Morrison has such a great voice should be 1

I give up on hope for humanity since Kesha is higher than the Doors... :(

Unacceptable. I wonder if anyone who voted has actually heard the Doors music - VaticanCameos

106JourneyJourney is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1973, composed of former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch.

They have a lot of albums and songs, creatively named in sequence. Examples are: (Departure, Arrival) (Captured, Escape) (Decade, Century, Millennium) exc. Each album has a song with the same name, and Journey has a lot of the Greatest hits, like Don't stop believing, Seprate ways, Any way you want it, and many more. To me journey will always be one of the greats.

107Three Days GraceThree Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

No matter what they say Three Days Grace is and will always will be #1. Adam Gontier, Barry Stock, Brad Walst, and Neil Sanderson are my heroes. Their music is focused on every emotion that every person feels wether if its angry, sad, happy, love, or hate. Their music gets me through the tough times and that is why they are #1.

108GorillazGorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs.

An incredibly fantastic musician. Morrissey was brilliant in the Smiths, and continues to excel with his solo music. Can write the most amazing lyrics which always feels so real.

117One DirectionOne Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

Let's just be clear one direction is talented. Metal bands are generally talented. Many types of metal, such as thrash metal and death metal, do not take much effort for those who are good musicians. Seriously, canniball corpse is screaming into the mike while guitar and drums are being played fast. Not saying it's bad, just stating the facts. One direction also does not put time and effort into their songwriting. A talented boy band who simply makes music to sell records (no shame in that, but it is unoriginal on purpose). Don't use the charts as an excuse for them being this high. 5 words. Who. Let. The. Dogs. Out. So do you guys really think 1d should be 300 some spots above outkast, for example? No. And mentioning how good every single metal band to ever exist is irrelevant and childish, let alone untrue. Never said you couldn't like them or metal music. Just saying...

Why do people prefer listening to this unholy garbage that is made without any effort, thought or originality instead of complex, intelligent and energetic music like metal? One Direction is the prime example of an artist that doesn't deserve the fame that it's been given. Do not listen to this terrible disgrace to music.

Listen to real music; like AC/DC, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, KISS, Motorhead, Pantera, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Ozzy Osborne Venom, Disturbed, Linkin Park Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, Rob zombie, Dragonforce, Rhapsody of fire Gloryhammer, Blind Guardian, Avenged Sevenfold, Killswitch Engage, Annihilator, and Alice Cooper.

Don't you dare say that they have no talent! Actually, they are as hardworking as ants and everyone from one direction is PERFECT (except Zayn Malik). I love One Direction especially Harry Styles! I just love their songs because they are very nice to listen to and at the same time, they are very catchy. Next time please think thrice before typing anything stuff in the comments section!

They have no talent. - RiverClanRocks

If today was your last day would you make your mark by mending a broken heart? Well that song inspired me to do kindness! I am a rockstar thanks to nickelback - JDagger500

Nickelback get's no respect from mainstream audiences. And that pisses me off!

Yes the members are cool and nice guys but Nickelback will always be a terrible band. - Powerfultekin
