Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 11XW
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.
Best ska punk band for sure.V9 Comments
Traffic was a super-group of their day, and they deserved the acclaim! Jazz-inspired rock with musicianship of the highest caliber. Some of it sounds dated today, but much of their music still sounds as fresh today as it did in the 1960's. I can only believe the low rating is due to people not knowing how good these guys are.
220? Really? Just listen and you'll move them to the top 10!

Alice Nine is the most rising Japanese Visual Rock Bands in Japan. Their music are always grows and they tried to add other genre and mixed it with Rock like jazz, blues, ballad and some synthesizer.. they're awesome!
Best band ever. Shou's voice is amazing! They aren't a legend, but they deserve for attention too. Hope you like this bandV1 Comment
Are you kidding? 409? Listen to their music. Who's list is this anyway?
One of the best bands in the music rock history.
I totally agree that they are "One of the best bands in rock music"... I just nominated them, thinking no one knew who they are.
Should be at least in top twentyV5 Comments
Damn solid group. I wish I'd found them years ago
Metric is great
Neil Finn is one of the best songwriters of ALL TIME. Seriously, the man is a genius - listen to any of their albums for definitive proof. Pure gold people.
Can't say enough about how good the songs are - never seem to lose their magic.
New Zealand's best. Even Neil's Hobbit song is awesome!V1 Comment
Great punk band. Check out "The Decline"V2 Comments
Along with High On Fire, the absolute kings of all they survey. Every album is damned amazing.
The fact that this band is 200 spots behind that atrocious band Bring Me The Horizon is sad
Everyone in this band is awesome, all their albums are awesome, ergo MASTODON IS AWESOME.
I totally agree this band should be way higher than some of these rookie bands.V5 Comments
BLUE OYSTER CULT remains a band that though have been around for more than 40 ' years still just hasn't claimed what was undoubtedly, by all right its own- a top-notch place among the greatest bands ever. Alas! But it still continues to show its true, pristine colors by doing live shows throughout the U. S and thus always keeping up to its side of terms. And its followers, irrespective of how so few they may be in number, continue to worship them with an unbreakable faith. Buck Dharma to me is in the same league (if not the superior) to Frank Zappa, Van Halen and other unbelievably good guitarists of their contemporary era. For me, undoubtedly the MOST UNDERRATED BAND and LEAD GUITARIST of the 20th century. But I will keep on believing in them till my last breath. My Heroes-B.O. C and Buck Dharma.
P. S: I'M BURNIN'.. I'M BURNIN'.. I'M BURNIN' FOR YOU!
Such a strange, singular band of it's era - rock, pop, psych, all tied up with lyrics that draw from mysticism, horror and poetry. Really not heavy metal in the traditional sense, just it's own many - headed collective. Name is quite apt as they were slightly too strange for true mass appeal, but until the ouster of A. Bouchard, one of the great American bands. The Unknown Tongue has spoken!
"I got a fever, and the only prescription, is more cowbell". Seriously, don't fear the reaper and burnin for you are amazing songs.V17 Comments
Faith No More is easily one of the most influential bands from the last 30 years. Their music is so diverse, and almost all of it top notch, they at least deserve to be in the top 25.
160? are you serious? how can bands like A7X be above these guys? - Trish
Great band the vocalist are so good - mota
I still have faithV3 Comments
Inxs is the greatest band in the world! They should be #1 on the list! Their hit including "Need You Tonight", "Never Tear Us Apart", "What You Need", "New Sensation", and even more will always leave a legacy in the rock n' roll business. Plus, they've dominated the world with their awesome music since the late 70's. INXS FOREVER!
This is a joke right? I've scrolled through about 50 bands I never even heard of to get to Inxs! One of the greatest bands ever! Live baby live enough said! - Davey7830
Why are INXS #248? This list is strange!
Come on! INXS at one time was one of biggest bands in the world..V5 Comments
Because they can make music nobody else can create. That's why I think they should be on top 5. Manowar is awesome! Manowar is one of the best rock bands in the world.V1 Comment
Eventually became Queens of the Stone Age
1 2 3 take my hand and come with me cause they are fine and they should be number one
Top Aussie Band, Was one of the better bands in the garage rock revival scene of the early 2000s. Have great guitar driven songs but also have a nice ballady/softer side. Highly recommend Get Born to any fan of rock, especially those who are interested in garage rock revival and bands like The Strokes and The White Striples
