181T. RexT. Rex were an English glam rock band, formed in 1967 by singer-songwriter and guitarist Marc Bolan. The band initially called Tyrannosaurus Rex, released four folk albums under this banner.

The first ever glam rockers, Marc Bolan did something truly unique here, and who knows what they would have done if it wasn't for that car crash

Influenced artists as diverse as The Smiths and Prince, and Slash and Steven Tyler are also fans of them

183DanzigDanzig is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1987 in Lodi, New Jersey, United States. The band is the musical outlet for singer and songwriter Glenn Danzig, preceded by the horror punk bands the Misfits and Samhain.

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 219

CHIODOS IS AMAZING. NOTHING MORE TO SAY.

185TotoToto is an American rock band formed in 1977 in Van Nuys in Los Angeles. The band's current lineup consists of Joseph Williams, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Steve Lukather, plus touring members Leland Sklar and Shannon Forrest.

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 band

186Coheed and CambriaCoheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

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.

187Within TemptationWithin Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in April 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.

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 songs

188Puddle of Mudd

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 hell

189Lacuna CoilLacuna Coil is an Italian metal band from Milan. Since their formation in 1994, the group has had two name changes, being previously known as Sleep of Right and Ethereal.

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

190Imagine DragonsImagine Dragons is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Although they haven't been on the scene for very long, Imagine Dragons is a truly fantastic band. They have set the bar for future rock bands with their upbeat tempo and excellent blend of alternative and rock music. If you disagree with me, all I have to say is welcome to the new age.

Hello? No one has a brain this is the best band ever my favourite it's amazing

I know they haven't been around for a while only about a year or two but some of they songs are truly amazing if you don't like them then don't listen to them just to make fun of them. But I think if want to insult them, then you should try singing as good as them and putting a record out. Then you can insult them.

Take them off of this list

Best ska punk band for sure.

My favorite band. Best musical climaxes in Rock history. 1992 to 1997 ruled. Still a quality force in live music.

197The YardbirdsThe Yardbirds are an English rock band formed in London in 1963 that had a string of hits during the mid-1960s, including "For Your Love", "Heart Full of Soul" and "Over Under Sideways Down".

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!

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!

199Death From Above 1979

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.

200Airbourne

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!
