Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 23XW
These Space-Rock pioneers have been touring and producing albums for almost 45 years, building a legacy which includes "Brainstorm," "Silver Machine," "Sonic Attack," "Uncle Sam's on Mars," and "AeroSpace-Age Inferno" among their dozens of classic non-hits. Ask any Hawkwind fan their favorite album, then watch as they cannot even condense the list to their ten favorites! - IgnoreThis
Hawkwind are a truly awesome band. One of the very first to venture into the genre of "Space Rock". I hope Hawkwind will always be remembered for their unique blend of hippy and punk culture.
I bet a few people know this but Motorhead's Lemmy was in this band before he got fired in 75 - LedZepp81V1 Comment
as far as instrumental talent, nothing else comes close
Very Good Post Hardcore Band
its like a kick to your head
science fiction music but seriously good and addictive
This british band to me was better than Zep or the Who! Their hard rock sound was original and melodic without being
Wimpy like Journey or Styx etc... Albums Lights Out, Obsession, Force It and the brilliant Live album Strangers in the
Night is one of the best Live albums of all time. Their later albums like No Place to Run and Wild Willing and Innocent
Were also great even though guitarist Shenker had left. The bands newest albums also continue the hard rock melodic
Sound that most bands can't even come close! Vinnie Moore was a good replacement and has held his own. I've seen
Them numerous times from early 75 to 2009 and they still can rock any new band out! Should be in the RHOF!
Definitely one of the greatest bands out there and they deserve more credit.
My favorite song by them is "Do What You Do". - Gigan
Best portuguese rock band ever
it's Matt Skiba, yo! His band has a great rock sound! -
I love this band
Beacouse Andy Biersack listen to this band too
He was the first one who started rock. I don't know why he isn't the King of Rock actually, because Elvis was after him and he was rock and roll. Bill Haley was soft rock in the 50's, but he was in a band. I should've put him as #1, but he is still up here at least. -
Who could be greater than the one band that started it all? Every one else is just a "Johnny come Lately". They were all original, innovative, popular and long lasting. All any one else has done is to and to or expand on what they created!
Oh, for goodness sakes. This band was one of the earliest bands in rock and was one of those who made rock popular which was what allowed it to expand and grow.V1 Comment
Josh Homme, Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones, and Alain Johannes. Doesn't get much better. - YabaecipV1 Comment
This list is obviously flawed if the Monkees are in 399th spot... GIVE ME A BREAK!
Come on now! Being down here is ridiculous. They were a phenomenon even if they were formed for a T.V. show.V1 Comment
This band wasn't that famous during their prime years, but their greatness was acknowledged later. come on they have influenced many, many of the bands in here. - zam67
Fun House-Probably one of the best albums ever!
Pretty much set the blue print for punk, deserves a top 59 rank
3 albums of staggering importance and greatness. IGGY IS ROCK.V4 Comments
One of the few modern day bands with soul and talent!
Young Team and Hardcore Will Never Die are totally fantastic.
With Mogwai comes great responsibility.V1 Comment
