2Three 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.

I used to be extremely doubtful that they could do as good with Matt as they do, but then I heard Painkiller, I Am Machine, Tell Me Why, Fallen Angel, etc. Of course, there will never be another Adam, but Matt also does a great job! Three Days Grace definitely deserves to be 1!

Most awesome band I've been lucky to find, totally amazing songs, the"old" and new songs are both the best! Very awesome!

Agree, the same happens with the list of best sngs of the year or beast movies, for example in the list off "worst movies of 2016" Inside out was like in 4th place, and in the end of the year in the list of best movie now was on 1st place, everybody are making this list too soon

You know, this list was made january 5th 2016... we still have eleven and a half months left in 2016. now would not be the time to start jumping to conclusions. there could be some epic band that emerges in the next few months and you all will want them to be on the top, but nope. AC/DC and paramore are apparently better. all in all, this was a great list idea, but just way too soon.
