Greatest Hard Rock Artists
The Contenders: Page 11XW
Amazing artists from Sweden, they are relatively new, sounds like something special. You need to check the song Last One Alive and you will here a big potential in this band.
Oh Man! Is my eyes are cheating with me they should be at least in top 10. thier song Welcome To Black Parade, Famous Last Words, This Is How I Disappear, Helena is best ever hard rock song. they have totally different personality. they are live legends!
YE, My Chemical Romance will always be my saviour, My Chemical Romance is not death yet, their songs WELCOME TO THE BLACK PARADE, I don't LOVE YOU, ITS NOT A FASHION STATEMENT, etc are the best song ever
What?! 72?! I mean, I agree that the ones in the top ten are classics but I couldn't find Cream on this list at all and they're, like, one of the best bands of this genre ever!
What the hell is this? This is a bunch of crap! This band shouldn't even be close to number 10! Who ever put these idiots on the list is a dumbass...
X-Japan is fantastic. Amazing, incredible band.
X Japan is the best band in Japanese history.V7 Comments
Overall awesomeness. Really know how to rock out live and music videos are just pure art. What real music should be.
Marilyn Manson is the most amazing guy EVER! And the band is just as amazing especially Twiggy. You guys rock hard. Peace out
The most innovative artist since Bowie was Ziggy where do you think Ga Ga got 90 percent of here fashion?
Woah! Marilyn Manson should be higher. Definitely above Linkin Park and Green Day!V4 Comments
The only reason why godsmack is not that close to the top of this list is due to the fact the term "Hard Rock" is apparently lost on some people. Most of the bands near the top do not classify as hard rock nor have they made anything of the sorts that can even be considered rock. Going through this list has made me want to beat my head against the table as it only points out the fact people have no idea on what each genres are. Godsmack is one of the best Hard Rock bands out there that has been around for some time now and if you need an example of what a hard rock band sounds like just listen to some godsmack and if you still don't understand youll need to be smack by GOD.
Godsmack is the greatest band no matter what this pole says or any other place
Godsmack is one of the greatest rock bands. There music is awesome!V1 Comment
Rise against cd's are awesome! the guitarist is awesome, I would like to have his guitar!
Muse is the very best Active hard rock group (Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Metallica etc. Are metal) I cannot believe that they are this low on the list. Their riffs are great, lyrics are pretty cool and they are one of the few rock groups around that still sounds fresh. Nickleback, shinedown, Three days Grace, 3 Doors Down, Staind, etc. Are all standard post grunge band with no real innovation and it all sounds the same. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Nirvana are some of the greatest rock bands ever but among active rock bands, Muse is the king.
My favorite band ever! It takes rock to a different level! These 3 brilliant artists had changed my taste in music... See them live and you will know how brilliant they are!
so many good songs, so amazing live, 6 great albums, brilliant musicians, what more do you need? - GlonnAtronnAdonnAdict
Are you sick? Muse is the best band forever! They are harder than rockV4 Comments
Foo Fighters ARE GREATEST BAND EVER PERIOD. Nirvana's drummer started this band, Dave Groehl (i think that's how its spelled). Best band of all time.
Foo Fighters should be on the top 20 at least. You should hear Pretender, Everlong, Big me, Monkey Wrench, These days, Walk, Dear Rosemary to name the best.
I can't believe I fell for this list. Foo Fighters should be top 20 at least. Joke page
This band seems to be extremely underestimated in this chart...V1 Comment
Tesla is much better than most of the bands on this list. They actually had the chops to play... not the look of posers.
Amazingly unique vocals, with crazy guitar licks from the electric duo, Hannon and Skeoch. Every song they made just oozed pure hard rock! Tesla is the ultimate hard rock band! Too bad they never got the recognition they so deserved
