The Contenders: Page 10
I love DBS but if there was't a band named Linkin Park. my favorite band was DBS for sureV 1 Comment
Come on Danzig fans I know you're out there. We are below Savage Garden. Are boy needs some love. - Blackdragonfish
I really dig the song "Mother". I hear it on the radio a lot and I always like the sound of this song.
Danzig should be a lot higher than 219V 2 Comments
One of the greatest pop-rock bands of all time. Rosanna and hold the line are classic rock songs!
30-years this year, since Hold the Line, and still just getting better and better
So underrated! Toto was really my introduction to thinking a band was cool. For that, I will always be thankful.
What why so low they won the Grammy for album of the year such a great bandV 5 Comments
What can I say... They have arguably one of the greatest songwriters in existence, one whom I personally would put next to the likes of Edgar Allan Poe and William Shakespeare (Sing what you can't say, forget what you can't play/hasten to drown into beautiful eyes/walk within my poetry, this dying music/my loveletter to nobody; Beneath the candlebed/Two saddened angles, in heaven, in death... One light for each undeserved tear... Beneath the candlebed/Two souls with everything yet to be said). Their guitarist, unlike most others in traditional rock bands you see all over the place right now, actually knows how to play his instrument, and despite being more of a melodic/rhythm guitarist who plays alongside keyboards he sure knows how to shred when he wants to! The keyboardist himself (who is also the main songwriter) plays pretty much everything in concert - the piano, the keyboards, and the orchestra, and despite being more of a metal band, because of those aspects, they've created ...more
The music is just amazing and the singer makes it all the best!
I'm so sick of seeing them being compared to female-fronted bands like Evanescence and Paramore. Nightwish are completely different in terms of musicianship, vocals, and songwriting, and they have much, much more variety; listening to Wishmaster and Imaginaerum is like listening to two separate bands. Of course, despite their popularity, there are too many mediocre alternative/hard rock bands out today that are even more so, and because of this I doubt Nightwish will even be voted onto the first page of this poll.
Songwriting, music, vocals, live performences...at best there can be!V 7 Comments
The vocals take some time to get used to but you get to realize that it fits the type of music.
The band is great and I recommend because they are quite talented and they are underrated.
They tell a story with their music, literally. The lead singer writes comics so you can read his books and then understand or almost predict what is coming next.
More of an Alternative Rock/Rock
Why Coheed and Cambria isn't in the top 50.
I think that coheed really makes it to top 50 at least. Know why? Because they have a natural talent
and then they have a great song.
"Welcome Home" is one of the greatest song that I've heard.
One of the most greatest bands of all time.
Hell of nice guys.
Amazing bass lines and guitar riffs.
Perfect vocals and drum beats.
I don't understand why they're not on here.
For sure in the top 3 bands post 2000. Their songs such as Blurry, Control, Psycho, Never Change, Basement, just to name a few, are great. Come Clean, Famous, and Life on Display are all good albums (especially Cone Clean). Unfortunately for us fans, Wes Scantlin has been going a little wack lately, but none the less while it lasted it was pretty great. Hopefully Wes gets his self together and they can lay down some more tracks!
Best band out there... too low in this list.. asking Alexandria is above them what the hellV 2 Comments
Within Temptation is my favorite band! They have the most amazing songs like "What have you Done", "Mother Earth", "Angels" and much more. They are the reason I hear metal music I really ADORE them! You should definitely hear this band you will change your mind about metal :))
The best symphonic rock band in the world, worthy to be the best anywhere. You did not listen to their music? So do it! And Within Temptation becomes part of your life!
Within temptation are amazing! With a front singer like Sharon den Adel, how can't they be! There a mix of symphonic rock and metal and they even once used rap. If you like metal, rock, symphonic music then go, find and listen! :-)
Jillian and Angels are real great songsV 2 Comments
Lacuna coil are amazing! They have a mix of male and female voices with some amazing drums and guitar! There song's are very catchy and the music videos are so cool
This band is fantastic, and I have no idea why they aren't high up on the list. Great sound, great band, great everything.V 1 Comment
The Cat's Cradle is where this amazing band got their name rom and I love them so much! 227 is so not them lewl whatever their final placing is, remember that you guys will always be top10 in my heart ^^V 1 Comment
Yes Whitesnake was around before 87's big hit Still of the Night and Here I Go Again was a hit in 82 for them in
Europe! It America a while to catch on to them! They band was a hard rocking bluesy band not the glam band with
Screaming guitar that came later. Coverdale voice was original deep and bluesy until he started the screaming.
The live album Live in the Heart of the City is a classic and start here if you never heard earlier Whitesnake. The
Last few albums have been awesome also more like early whitesnake but of course keeping their harder sound.
Jon Lord and Ian Paice from Deep Purple were in the earlier version! Too bad Coverdale has lost his original voice.
I AMAZED SEEING THIS LIST. AFTER THE JUDGMENT DAY, HERE I GO AGAIN, IS THIS LOVE, THE DEEPER THE LOVE WHY THEY ARE HERE? THEY SHOULD BE IN TOP TEN. - RIFATHUSSAIN
Dude! Just listen to "Looking For Love", and see how the David Coverdale/John Sykes duo switches from the bluesy, lovestruck, heart wrenching vocals to an all out, no holds barred wicked onslaught of guitar riffs and angry screeching----- epic stuff! This song characterizes my music taste in one neat little package.
They are the rock legendV 12 Comments
One of the greatest bands ever and had one of the greatest bassist and guitarist you could find
This is one of the greatest bands ever.
Bands like bvb, My Chemical Romance, fob, and basically every other form of cancer come before sublime. ouch.
Wow...this is way too low. Their style is so extensive. Especially in Robin' the Hood.V 9 Comments
they are a very heavy band but they have great guitar and drums. their screamer is very good as well. listen to blacken the cursed sun and walk with me to hell -
Hell yes, they are the best. They should be number one, all of their songs are good. They have a great drummer and vocalist.
Number one metal band in the world! They have the best break downs ever! The best at their genre! Perfect vocals! I just love this band! Who cares about the rating! Any metal head would know how good this band is!
True American Metal at its FINEST!V 4 Comments
My favorite band. Best musical climaxes in Rock history. 1992 to 1997 ruled. Still a quality force in live music.V 1 Comment
Is this list even real? It's like playing a game of spot the good band. Voting for thiese to take them slightly higher, even though I prefer a few others on the list.
Wow this list is horrible 3 doors down has so many great songs Gah can't believe this
Another bad mistake! This just goes to show you that these people making this list is out of their f' 'n minds!
WHAT?!?! How the hell this band so low?! They are the real rock of 21th century. This list so screwed. Disgusting. - Nickss
I agree these guys are so goodV 4 Comments
How could it be that a band that used to have Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page in the guitars is so low listed? Have you ever hear them? They rock!
They were the first super group of their time, before cream and hendrix
Haven't heard many songs, but at least a top 50 ranking
3 of the 5 best guitarists ever!V 3 Comments
Runnin' Wild is one of the best rock albums of recent years - it's a shame so many rock fans don't know it!
Most people haven't heard of them - but they play great, energetic rock and deserve a wider audience. They are superb live as well as in the studio.
First of all, it says ROCK, not metal, not pop, ROCK. Second of all, Airbourne has the most energy ever put into a studio recording. I saw them live earlier this year, and let's just say, their energy was nearly tripled!V 1 Comment
