282 Venom Venom Venom are an English extreme metal band formed in 1979 in Newcastle upon Tyne. Coming to prominence towards the end of the new wave of British heavy metal, Venom's first two albums—Welcome to Hell and Black Metal—are considered a major influence on thrash metal and extreme metal in general.

Why the heck is Venom is this place, they should be in top 100 for sure. Anyone who doesn't know this band should hear their album Metal Black

283 Angra

288 Florence and the Machine Florence and the Machine Florence and the Machine are an English indie rock band that formed in London in 2007, consisting of lead singer Florence Welch, Isabella Summers, and a collaboration of other artists.

In simple words, they make music for the soul. Music that describes your feeling to a perfect T. They're relatively new but they're so so so so awesome. SHAKE IT OUT and NEVER LET ME GO are such amazingly and deeply beautiful songs

291 Dead by April

Dead by April truly rocks! They are the best. Their songs are so great because they make awesome lyrics, they play great guitar, the drumming is great, melodic vocals, best growling, and the synths also rock. Just listen to the songs Losing you and Stronger, I'm sure you'll get addicted to it. Dead by April probably the best band there is.

Just hear song Dead by April make life to the fullest, lyric full of deep meaning and music is really awesome and rocks.

Ever I have I have come across this I'd fall in love with this every music they released it was just awesome I'd love jimmie, zandro the screamer of dis rock... Thanking Dead By April you will always rock... Love Dead by April

293 The Animals The Animals The Animals were an English band of the 1960s, formed in Newcastle upon Tyne, during the early part of the decade.

The Animals at 812?!?! No! None of the five hundred bands ahead of them even exist for more than five people! They made House of the Rising Sun, and they were one of the greatest bands of the 60's. The Animals deserve to be at least in the top 100.

The Animals are my favorite band, next to Pink Floyd. Eric Burdon has an amazing voice, and they have really smooth flow. It's a shame to see them so low. For me, they're the most underrated band ever. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Talk about disrespecting a great band of the 60s! Their rendition of an old, old folk song, The House of the Rising Sun is at least in the top fifty of best songs. Eric Burdon? If you have never heard them you should make the effort,

You must be kidding

294 The Calling
295 Michael Learns to Rock

You gotta be deaf not to enjoy their songs. They put a new meaning to the genre of rock music. Sentimental music that warm one's heart and brings back much childhood memories.

Most underrated band ever. Shame before they can release The Actor in the US their label got broke, but now they have a huge Asian fanbase, so why don't the US go and have a try? - justinduongpiano

Mltr blue night, sleeping child, complicated heart are so good to listen to

298 Cinderella Cinderella Cinderella is an American glam metal and hard rock band from the suburbs of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The band emerged in the mid-1980s with a series of multi-platinum albums and hit singles whose music videos received heavy MTV rotation.

Why aren't they in the top ten? I think they might of had Brian Johnson (singer of AC/DC) at one time. - masonkv

Tom Keifer has always been the lead singer of Cinderella.

Definitely a top 10 band. Especially live.
