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...
Metallica should be on the top, honestly.
Metallica Should Be In Number First...V11 Comments
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.
How did I guess, oh right the Beatles are amazingV14 Comments
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
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.
Black eyed peas above linkin park this list seriously need to be altered
I think most people who voted don't even know much songs of linkin park
My favorite alternative rock band! They're so cool!V16 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.V5 Comments
Band of the generation X. All time greats!
Because they are better than one directionV2 Comments
They've got that british thing going for them ;P and they're good looking which helps
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
I love one directionV43 Comments
Awesome, awesome band should be number one.
Guns N' Roses is awesome! They're the best
BEST BAND EVER! They are so talented, Guns N' Roses foreverV3 Comments
Everyone who speaks English has heard of the Floyd
Pink Floyd member are the music philosophers of 20 and 21 century.
This duo band is slowly become one of the most heard, either by word of mouth, or by radio, right now. Lyrics are profound that can be interpreted in many different ways while creating this sound that intrigues many listeners. The duo has an incredible chemistry that is felt in the music and most importantly in their live shows. Their sound ranges from reggae, rock, alt, rap, pop, and many others that one cannot help but feel the music and once the music brings you in, one cannot help but to listen to the lyrics and understand its meaning.
One direction is slowly rising to fame as they have a fresh and refreshing genre of music which is very awesome to hear. Their lyrics are not so complex but the meaning of the songs is something we can all relate to. Who knows after some time when people start recognizing them they might as well be on top.V1 Comment
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
Always feeling the youth inside.V2 Comments
