Top 10 Most Popular BandsOzzyVanHalen Which band is known by just about all adults, teens, kids and all age groups?
The Top TenXW
This list is stupid. I don't think any band could ever surpass the image of the Beatles. It just can't be done. They are just too prevalent and influential to ever really NOT be the most popular band. Regardless of musical quality, the Beatles win hands down.
The Beatles is undeniable the most popular band ever, but yet not the best. I agree that Beatles is very, VERY influential band, and music won't be the same without them. But for the best band, I can't say because there are countless bands spread over this world even after the Beatles, and each person has different opinion about their best.
This list is about the most POPULAR bands, not the BEST bands. The Beatles have sold around half a billion albums while Metallica has only sold 110 million albums.
They are number 1V16 Comments
One, the unforgiven, enter sandman, lord of summers, master of puppets, nothing else matters, fade to black, sad but true AND MANY MORE IF you FOUND BETTER SONGS TELL ME because you WONT
Only Metallica name is enough...
I'm akshat Sharma of India and here people don't know what is real music... I want to suggest all people of India to listen Metallica they are really guitar heroes...

Led Zeppelin is the father of heavy metal. The greatest music genre ever. Taking the elements of blues rock and turning it into heavy metal. And they are very popular and much better then some Beatles band.
Led Zeppelin brought the revolution in hard rock and heavy metal praise the lords!
Should be number 1 without a shadow.V1 Comment
I think Queen is most popular band. They music is perfect. And after Freddie Mercury died AIDS stayed very important theme.
Not even the most popular band of their own late-70's era. Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, and The Rolling Stones were all much more popular, along with Elton John.V1 Comment
One direction is definitely the most popular band right now. Nice voices, very cute, good kids, and girls love them! Several awards for their style, looks, and music. 1directioner!
They are talented singers, good looking and have broken many records and won a ton of awards. Most popular band on the planet right now
They've got that british thing going for them ;P and they're good looking which helps
Very cool bandV60 Comments
Even if you have set metallica on the first place, but you all know that AC/DC is the most popular band ever. Over 50 millions Back in Black albums sold. Is not that enough?
Pure power and energy...rocking for 40 years already, who else could take their place? I mean... If AC/DC isn't the best...no one would be.
It is such a sick band... Also love back in blackV5 Comments
Right now Linkin Park is the most popular band m/ despite that I'm a LP fan I admit that the other bands here are much more better but my musical taste is Linkin Park and I love em m/
Linkin Park is the greatest band I've ever seen. Its really amazing.

Everyone who speaks English has heard of the Floyd

Definitely a modern band with an old school feel that I really like. Every song is unique with sound and lyrics and can be applied to anything. Green Day has pretty good vocals, and it's a classic. - Papergirl
Green Day has been around since 1986, and they're still huge. Green Day is always changing, yet when you hear by them you can still always identify it as Green Day. Should be in top 5.
The leaders of modern rock... Still kicking today with the youth after many others have died
Green day is awesomeV5 Comments
Almost everyone has heard and actually likes a Coldplay song, but doesn't even realize it. Their songs, including a lot of their early ones, are extremely inspiring and send amazing messages.
My favorite band... I love most of their music, and there are LOTS of people who know them. Especially after Viva La Vida.
Just saw my favorite band in concert for the first time and it was absolutely. Such a great band with great songs, great messages, and great vibes.
One of my favourite bands. I love all their albums.V4 Comments
