Top Ten Rock Bands In India

The Top TenXW

1Avial (Kerala)

The very best band in the country without any doubt... Avial brings malayalam rock to the highest level possible... Nada nada, aana kallan etc are the best of the lot... You can never stop humming to their tones

Music is awesome... The lead guitarist rocks, the vocal is average... And DJ you deserve a throne dude... Excellent work in the film "SECOND SHOW"! Keep ROCKING AVIAL...

Brilliant blending they do.. No indian language based band has their class and calibre! Rex vijayan the lead guitarist and mithun the drummer are the highlights of the band.. Even though I miss anand raj benjamin paul as the lead vocalist, tony has done a fair job in filling his void

Come back avial broz@back in action

2Cactus (Kolkata)

A rock band with a soul... Each and every song of this band touches the heart... I guess this is what passion of music does to you... You end up creating music which people eventually end up listening every single day... Their live performance is better than the best... Way to go cactus

There's something magical about this band's music... It's nothing like the regular music you get to hear these days... It's so different- SO good that it can make a person cry in disbelief...Disbelief that such passionate musicians actually exist, that too in India...Amazing

Deserves nothing than number 1. Kick ass tight band. Love you guys. Keep rocking as always...

My favourite :) Soul touching music.

3Indian Ocean (Delhi)

Indian Ocean is very rocking band. The main Rahul Ram is very talented. The album Black Friday is my favorite.
The song Ma Reva... I like it very much.

So... It should take first rank in Indian rock bands.

Rahul ram for his unique bass grooves...!
Sushmit sen for his magnificent lead..!

I have been in Music world for more than 15 years. With all the experience I have, I will certainly vote Indian Ocean for their amazing Musicianship.

Amazing band it should be the first rock band in India

4Fossils (Kolkata)

Fossils by very far is the best rock back in India... Not parikrama.. Not indian ocean.. Not anyone else... The music and the lyrics, even though shares similarities with iron maiden sometimes, are original and the only sound in india that sounds true rock and roll. Hard rock, heavy rock. If you want soul music and soft rock, there's a separate genre for both. For true rock, fossils is the best rock band in india. And bishakto manush is the best rock song of all time in india.. And fossils debut album, fossils is the best indian rock album of all time.

Fossils is the best and top band in bengal because their music is so relatable. They literally draw life with the power of sound! For each mood there is a song which can give me some answers and make me feel better!. The lyrics of their songs who touch me inside. Their songs, a way to escape when I'm having a rough time and give me strength. They are next to me if I'm alone. For me FOSSILS are like a best friend and My life...

Man.. This is horrible, who has made this vote.. Did they have any sense about fossils... It is the band whre rock is at its best position in whole country... The pole is incorrect.. They have placed a band in 1st position who had cheated the audience in a live show by playing their records and doing only lip singing on the stage..

They are the best...

7Mother Jane (Kerala)

Seriously? A silly bengali band at number 1 (No one understands the language well and anyways I've heard cactus's songs are pale and dumb)? Indian Ocean are just above this beauty of a band because they were instantly popular. Motherjane are the best band to come out of India and have produced the best guitarist of the country, Baiju D'rajan. Their drummer Deepu is awesome as well and Suraj Mani has a good voice. Definitely should have been number 1!

Awesome band.. They rock... The taste of south Indian classical can be seen in their s
Ongs

Awesome band..
No one can equal the classical style of the lead guitars...
The classical touch that they give to each of their songs is awesome..

Deserves number one.

9Indus Creed (Mumbai)

If there was no Indus Creed (Rock Machine), who knows what Indian Rock scene would have been like. They shot Indian Rock to international fame at a time when rock was mostly unheard in India. - sumit

Indus Creed at 16 The people who have been rocking since the 90's Its just stupid
Clearly anyone can call there band a "Rock" band nowadays
List is long whereas there are only a few bands in India who understand and can "attempt" to play rock

The god & conveyor of rock scene in India, n still they aren't rated in top10,! Whats wrong with the voters

Such soulful songs. Listen "Fireflies" to know more what I mean.

10Lucid Recess (Guwahati)

Awesome three member band... Truly awesome

One of the best bands performing live I have ever seen

They really have a genuine and full sound to their music and no doubt they are one of the best out there who should be higher in the list,if u don't agree then just go to YouTube and listen to one of their songs.
