The Top TenXW

1Justin BieberJustin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claimed that he was Part-Indian) and he's Christian. He's the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. ...read more.

Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold, Oasis, Nickelback, Green Day, and 30 Seconds to Mars shouldn't be on this list AT ALL. The people who voted those artists are dumb, have no taste in rock music, or either listen to lame Wiz Khalifa or Taylor Gang, and Linkin Park are the most famous. Now, Bieber... He's killing rock and leaving weak rap to the top of the charts. I mean, what?

Why would you learn guitar and drums at 3 then do the music he is doing. One word, FAIL - Tobzz

I'm sorry, but why is McFly on this list? They aren't even a rock band! They're a pop/punk band and they are an amazing group. They've had a Guiness World Record, beating The Beatles with their #1 debut album.

2Jonas Brothers
3McFly
4Busted
5Kaiser ChiefsKaiser Chiefs are an English indie rock band from Leeds who formed in 2000 as Parva, releasing one studio album, 22, in 2003, before renaming and establishing themselves in their current name that same year.
6Brandon Flowers

The Killers are decent, but Brandon Flowers does NOT live up to the music created by The Killers - Tobzz

7Drake Bell

Now this guy failed for definete. I think the moral of this list is: don't get famous through Disney or Nickelodeon if you want a music career (i.E. Busted, Drake Bell, Jonas Brothers) - Tobzz

Hmm, they didn't necessarily fail in music, but there's no doubt they failed at rock. Plus, they're just plain annoying. - Tobzz

Same as Oasis, didn't fail at music, but it was never rock, it was always too cheesy. - Tobzz
