Rammstein is just a good foreigner band, who can go up with the other American bands

Rammstein is truely the only metal band with class. Americans don't understand the band because of a different style and language. I rank their performances above the rest, truely fearful and genuin.

I don, t get this... Well ok Metallica is great but rammstein Du Hast and Ich Will are super, maybe metalica is god tthen ramm is ze god of ze god! ICH WILL RAMMSTEIN! DU HAST RAMMSTEIN!
And deep purple great too...

The best band with a unique style and simply the best

Top Ten Rock Vocalist - Chris Cornell.

66Dream TheaterDream Theater is an American progressive metal band. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", but had to change its name to Dream Theater later. more.

Wow, This is obviously wrong. Anyone who knows music and not just listens to it that Dream Theater is the Dream Team of musicians. With the exception of the lead singer the rest of the band is the best to be had.

Well... I could go on and on about how this is the best band ever but I have no need, because it's enough just to listen to them to know in your heart that they are just AMAZING.

! Dream Theater are one of the best bands to come out of the 80s and are still putting out awesome albums, any fan of metal should listen to "the glass prison" or "pull me under" or one of their newest "the Dark eternal Night"
Dream Theater for #1!

I have nothing to say, but listen to them

67EuropeEurope is a Swedish rock band formed in Upplands Väsby, Stockholm in 1979 under the name Force by vocalist Joey Tempest, guitarist John Norum, bassist Peter Olsson and drummer Tony Reno.

One of the best bands ever. Their 4 latest albums are better than the golden era albums, and way better than the sum of all the XXI century releases of all the other bands in this list.

How can you people forgot about one of the greatest hard rock band of all time!

One of the most underrated band in the history of hard rock! Their most played song 'The Final Countdown' is tottaly different from their other songs! Most of the people have never heard Europe first two albums which are heavy metal oriented! In the recent time, since the reunited in 2004 they released 4 albums and they are great especially the last one 'Bag of Bones'
And remember that they are not just the band that did 'the final countdown' becouse if you think that and called yourself a hard rock fan you're losing a lot!

68The StoogesThe Stooges, also known as Iggy and the Stooges, are an American proto-punk band from Ann Arbor, Michigan, first active from 1967 to 1974, and later reformed in 2003. Although they sold few records in their original incarnation, and often performed for indifferent or hostile audiences, the Stooges are more.

Myles Kennedy is one of the best rock singers of today

These people can make music... They are alive on stage

71Faith No MoreFaith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Hard Rock yes, but they can essentially play any genre they want and make it intense. More free than any other band on here to do what they want without fans turning on them because they essentially went through that every album and were more appreciated for it instead.

Faith No More was before their time. Their music was artistic, vocals were the best out there. This band is still my favorite after all these years.

Mike Patton rocked before he left the band. Now most everything he does is too strange to listen to.

72KornKorn is an American nu metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David more.

is there something to saz about this band.i think it is all already told.this is the best band ever.fieldy is the best bassist ever.noone has his style,and jon is of corse the best singer.i love them so much.KORN RULES.Vote for serbia

my absolute FAVORITE band. they've gotten letters from fans saying that if it weren't for korn's music, they would've killed themselves. very varied sound over the years, and a whole bunch of emotion (especially on their debut album). BEST OF THE BEST! - fieldy_freak

KoRn is unique and amazing I listen to it and love their music since I was a kid. And I really hope they continue to be one of the best heavy metal bands in the world, for as long as they can.

This is the best hard rock band in the world. Their new drummer Ray Luzier is the best drummer Korn has ever had. I happen to be a drummer my self and I totally look up to him everybody else is amazing also.

74Three 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.

Three Days Grace is REAL! They sing about real life, real situations, they put their passion into their music and it shows! You can understand what the hell their saying and you can relate! All of their albums and each song is so different but they're still distinctly Three Days Grace. Just listening to them puts goosebumps on my skin! - baileejo11

This band is one of the best bands of all time. Please listen to the music of this band, just feel the voice of the vocal. You will understand what kind of band is this. I wont tell you to vote, you will vote yourself when you will listen to the songs of this band.

These guys totally deserve to be near the top of this list... It's madness!

Best band ever this thing is wrong
