41ParamoreParamore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

Excuse me, 30 Seconds to Mars and Muse. You are standing in the way of the true biggest Rock Band today! Paramore deserves to be on top, not just because of Hayley's awesome voice and equally awesome hair, but because of their songs that reflect the feelings of teenagers in the present generation. Now, please step aside because PARAMORE IS THE ONLY TRULY AT THE #1 SPOT.

My favourite band is in 17th place its not possible... Best vocals by Hayley, best music by Taylor and Jeremy... Its should be at no... Green day is good band but not better than paramore... All albums are good and my favorite album brand new eyes... So please vote for paramore it really deserve number 1 place...

They had a break-up but they stayed strong and released a new song in 2011. "Monster" was part of the Transformers Movie soundtrack and was a YouTube hit.

Paramore are perfect so move over Green Day bloody hell

42ToolTool is an American progressive metal/alternative metal band, that was formed in 1990. ...read more.

Pretty much all these bands are just crappy products of the radio industry. Tool is actually amazing and each song and album is loaded with meaning. They have by far the most talent and highest quality music of any of these groups. They don't get on the radio that much because they make genuine music.

I would suggest everyone who voted bands other than radiohead... Give it a try and you will get to know what is music!

What! Radiohead has made an influence in Muse and Coldplay, radio head are the masters of the alternative

Radiohead are not comparable to other bands. They are special.

Wow. This is a heartbreaking list. - Donut

50Wolfmother ...read more.

A very underrated band. Wolfmother is not like other 21st century bands. Their music looks a lot like 70s rock and I like it!

Wolfmother all the way.
No band has been more consistent with their sound as much as wolfmother has been. Also the band started in 2000. At the dawn of the next century.
I would like to see it higher up. A seriously underrated band.

Althought their music is derivative of late 60s and 70s rock, maily jimi hendrix. They have been genre loyal. Neo Psychedelic rock, and stoner rock. Stockdale really has a very trippy voice. Should be ranked higher. Nickleback is a disgrace. Just saying.
Linkin park probably deserves first place. The rest of the list is badly fixed.
Wolfmother m/
This band hits you right in the childhood.

51The All-American RejectsThe All-American Rejects are an American rock band formed in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1999. The band consists of bassist and lead vocalist, Tyson Ritter, lead guitarist and backing vocalist, Nick Wheeler, rhythm guitarist and backing vocalist, Mike Kennerty, and drummer Chris Gaylor.
52Nine Inch NailsNine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock/metal band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

What Trent Reznor can come up with is without a doubt, GODLY-LIKE. He's the most brilliant person around right now. He's what makes Nine Inch Nails, Nine Inch Nails.

53Alter BridgeAlter Bridge is an American rock band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 2004. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Myles Kennedy, lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

Alter Bridge is such a mature band with great lyrics that connect with everyone. Myles' powerful angelic vocals have no equal, in my opinion. He can also contribute in guitar alongside the solo genius, Mark Tremonti. Tremonti can also sing. AB's tracks rest heavily on a very good rhythm section from bassist, Brian Marshall, and drummer, Scott "Flip" Philips. AB works hard and really care for their fans. Though Myles is in his mid-40s, I see a bright, long future for the powerhouse of Alter Bridge. The only reason AB isn't as popular as they should be is that people think that they rip off Creed. You wouldn't even know that Alter Bridge is 3/4 of Creed if you just listened to them. Not only Myles' vocals, but more freedom for the rest of the band easily separates them and makes them superior to Creed. Give Alter Bridge's "Blackbird", "Cry of Achilles", or "Isolation" a listen. Then you can pass judgment on the 2000s' greatest overall band.

The hardest working Rock band working today! When you take Awesome talent Ridiculous music Intense Lyrics 4 Phenomenal Men... You Get = the Greatest Rock Band Today! Their Talent and Passion blows away this list!

The music is heavy, but it has great melody. If Creed is decent, Alter Bridge is excellent

IT should at least be in top ten. I don't know why people like Linkin Park's girly voices and weak bass

57Imagine DragonsImagine Dragons is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

It has the best drumbeats in the world. My favourite song of them is radioactive.

They are really good. They should be placed higher up in the 20th place at least.

Combination of Electric Rock with Dubstep make their "Radioactive" so powerful

Their musics have several types of rock and all their lyrics are super powerful. I love them.

Pierce the veil save peoples lives with lyrics like theirs. They are the most understanding band. They should at least be in top 10

I wonder why pierce the veil is so low on this list I think it should be in the top 20

Saved lives and are such beautiful people, inside and out. They should be in the top 10
