Love all Whitesnake but especially the heavy blues sound of the 1978-1984 version
Whitesnake has had the best drummers in the world and also two perfect albums! What are they doing so low on this list?
The singer is already over 50 and still has an amazingly strong and powerful voice! Oh hail whitesnake!
In the dio years they are by far in the top 10 greatest rock bands ever and ritchie blackmore is the guitar king. He wrote smoke on the water case closed

The "Forget To Remember" song is one of the graetest ,ever. The rythm makes your sick
The greatest HEAVY metal song in the past 10 years. Their bassist still blows me away every time I watch the music video.

Dir en grey is one of the greatest international rock acts to come to fame this year, making huge strides in selling out shows in both America and Europe with very little to no airtime or promotions. It's becoming clearer and clearer that the japanese community can rock just as hard, if not harder then the rest of the world!
Did I miss them? Please don't tell me that Ratt has been left of a list that includes some VERY obscure bands. They are top 20 easily.
From 75-80 Heart was a bad ass band. This is long before MTV changed them to pop queens.
Just don't believe in this crap- rocker1796, they are the one of the bands introduced visual rock in late 1980s with DEAD END, LOUDNESS, 44MAGNUM, etc
Number 1 all the way. Best singer, best guitarist, best bass, best drummer.

Crazy good vocalist... with awesome hair too!
these guys are crazy, they put on excellent concerts
they are heavy rockers i have ever seen
in flames is the best melodic, death, great lyrics, powerful, hard all around a great band and they create unique music
One of the greatest bands to ever play. Music is kick A** and they have deep awesome music.
Most energy no doubt
the best of fusion
How about some pansy flute music to your list of hard rock acts.
How could paramore be this low... So they arnt as heavy metal or screamo as some bands but they have really good songs and really good lyrics too
Oh my god, their stuff is so passionate. They really want to get their message accross to the public.
great band that has not made a bad album yet.
the best example of pure black metal
Cannot forget who these guys are!!! Actually just Billy!!!
