Coldplay is put simply the best band in the world! Their music is fantastic and can easily be sung, their world tours have mesmerized us all. And every fan is respected by this fantastic collection that is Coldplay!

Best band should be in the top ten! They have made so many hits and so many of their best songs are their most underrated! They are incredibly talented and their meaningful lyrics brings their songs to a new level

21st century U2

I don't see how this could possibly be a bad thing.

Nothing short of the best, a rush of blood to the head, the best album ever made

Probably one of the most underrated bands of all time. Josh Homme is absolutely terrific at guitar and vocals. Their latest album,...Like Clockwork and their 2002 masterpiece Songs for the Deaf are two of the greatest albums of the century.

Great band. Didn't get big toll they released their best album "Songs for the Deaf".

Seriously why are bands like kiss on this list? Vote for bands from the 21st century

68Switchfoot

This band deserves to be up top. Musically the composition of their songs is sick, it's like nothing else, and their lyrics are inspiring and life changing. These guys deliver the best live shows I've ever seen, they put energy and passion into everything that they do! Put these guys in the top ten!

This band is incredible, songs like meant to live, awakening, and dare you to move are all amazing. Lyrically, they have a lot of great meaning behind their songs.

69Sleeping With Sirens

All of the guys in this band are super talented and their lyrics really mean something to me

They're like the hottest band right now and they're in number 53 are you serious guys?

73Kings of Leon

Absolutely amazing on CD and live! Great tunes that you can really rock out to and their first 3 albums are some of my favourite!

Should be in Top 10 easily! They are so underrated because everyone THINKS they are overrated since they have only heard of 2/3 of their songs but have never actually gone to listen to their first few albums. Go listen to KoL's first three albums and you will see what I am talking about! You won't regret it!

77SevendustSevendust is an American heavy metal quintet from Atlanta, dating back to 1994. ...read more.

Should be in the top 10 easily, but they're obviously not sell-outs like most of the other bands on this mediocre list. Lots of great bands here, like Deftones, Staind, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, AC/DC, Atreyu, Queens of the Stone Age, Lostprophets, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Rush, The Offspring, blink-182 and Rise Against. But there are a lot of terrible bands as well, like Nickelback, Green Day, Slipknot, Simple Plan, Sum 41, U2, Wolfmother, Good Charlotte and Maroon 5.

Listen to "Black", "Waffle", "Live Again", "Face to Face", "Ugly", "Driven", "Inside", "Hope", "Forever", "Till Death" and "Decay".

78Iron MaidenIron Maiden are an English heavy metal band formed in Leyton, East London, in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris. They were known for some big hits such as The Trooper, and The Number of the Beast, and as of 2015, the band sold over 90 million albums.
