Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 7

121 The Allman Brothers Band The Allman Brothers Band The Allman Brothers Band was an American rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman and Gregg Allman, as well as Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson.

They are improving as they get older which is ridiculous, and the talent they have had at guitar over the years is staggering... Duane Allman, Dickey Betts, Warren Haynes, and Derek Trucks. All of these guitarists are in the top 100 guitarists of all time.

Duane Allman was voted by Rolling Stone magazine as the no 2 guitarist of all time. Wayne haynes and Dicky Bets who also played with the band wore in the top 30. The band it self is in the Rock and Roll hall of fame. Don't you think they should be on this list.

After nearly 40 years of great music, this band sounds as good as ever. 7 musicians with talent like no others. "WITHOUT A DOUBT, THE ABSOLUTE BEST 'BAND' TO EVER TAKE A STAGE. " - mdp1970

This band is extremely underrated.

123 Thousand Foot Krutch Thousand Foot Krutch

Thousand Foot Krutch is the best hard rock band ever. First of all Thousand Foot Krutch is a Christian band so they have great lyrics. Second Trevor Mcnevan is a great singer, screamer, yeller, rapper, and song writer. Third, Thousand Foot Krutch is very unique and has a lot of different genres including Rock, Hard Rock, Hip Hop, Ballad, Classic Rock, Modern Rock, Heavy Metal, Pop Rock, Rap, and Punk Rock. Forth, Welcome to the Masquerade is one of the best Rock albums in the world. And fifth Puppet is the one of the best songs in the world it a great rock song and a great rap song.

I think Thousand Foot Krutch deserves a higher spot than 341. What don't they have that a great rock band should have?

By the way, why isn't Relient K or Hawk Nelson on this list? They are awesome rock bands, probably even better than Thousand Foot Krutch.

Thousand Foot krutch is like Eminem, Linkin Park, and Skillet all combined. Except better! TFK rocks!

This band is just AMAZING. Trevor Mcnevon's voice is splendid. Their guitar riffs are amazing. The quality if their music is marvelous. Their songs such as welcome to the masquerade, shook, move, war of change etc are impressive and the music juts gets to you. If you haven't listened to them I suggest you should. Basically everyone over here just votes for the most popular bands and not the good one and listens to the popular ones only and hence bands like tfk are underrated.

Thousand Foot Krutch is, in my opinion, underrated on this list. Their music is splendid and Trevor raps and sings and just rocks the band with his voice. The guitar solos and the drums are really great. They are pretty underrated in the rock world and since they're Christian bands (also referring to many others), they are very low on this list. You should really try out their album 'The End Is Where We Begin'. From the beginning up till the end, they executed their message via music perfectly. - RagingBlast

125 The Killers The Killers The Killers is an American rock band formed in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2001, by Brandon Flowers and Dave Keuning.

Tokio Hotel is voted over The Killers. Really? Who on earth thinks that Tokio Hotel is better than The Killers? I know I don't. And neither should you.

They are one of the few alt bands that will be remembered through time - Gravityman321

I love their catchy sound and great original music. Already rock legends!

Hot fuss is like one of the best albums ever

126 Seether Seether Seether are a South African hard rock band founded in May 1999 in Pretoria, South Africa. The band originally performed under the name Saron Gas until 2002, when they adopted the Seether name.

They are the BEST! Think they actually saved my life a few times, whenever I'm pissed off or sad I just play some of their songs. They're way to unknown!

For being from South Africa, a place of more native and traditional music, they help bring great hard rock and relatable lyrics and melodies to their listeners. I believe they deserve to be listened to and be agreed to be top 100 at the least.

Seether brings a new genre to rock, something no other band can bring to the party! So many of the bands above them are just copycats, taking what someone else did, mimicking it, and getting famous. Seether is totally original, and a powerful rock band.

Seether is way too underrated!

The sadness will never end, diamonds aren't forever, and it never ends must hears

Try to listen to Anthem, really good song that in my opinion kinda sums them up. plus its really up-beating so it makes you wanna go dance and jump around

Terrible band that makes me want to throw up.

don't let the name fool you. very talented

CHIODOS IS AMAZING. NOTHING MORE TO SAY.

129 Slayer Slayer ...read more.

They should have System Of A Down's spot on the list.

Dis is my favorite band.. Even kirk hammet wore slayer shirt on their tour.. When Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich was rushed to hospital with a mysterious illness, and was unable to perform at 2004 European tour, Dave Lombardo(Slayer's drummer)replace Ulrich.. Children of bodom n cradle of filth also played slayer's song as a tribute..2 times Grammy Award Winner for 'Best Metal Performance'

Slayer is one of the big four! They deserve to be higher.

In the metal scene: a bit overrated

Outside the metal scene: underrated

Rammstein should be in top 10 exactly, at least top 20.

131 They Might Be Giants They Might Be Giants They Might Be Giants is an American alternative rock band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

I'm pretty sure they would be considered one one the best rock bands of all time if they would have gotten the fame they deserved.

They used to be great, now they're making music for preschoolers (literally).

The only song I really know by them is "Istanbul", but they sound really good.

Four outstanding musicians including two geniuses - Jan Akkerman and Thijs Van Leer. What a band. The brilliantly insane Hocus Pocus, the majesty of Cathedrale de Strasbourg, the magical Sylvia, Tommy, House Of The King.

Lol this band sucks. Only the non-savage emo losers listen to this crap.

This band should be in top 50 at least because they are making an excellent sound and have amazing meaning to their songs

They deserve to be at least top 50. They are amazing people and their lyrics are just amazing.

This band is 100% garbage.

136 10 Years 10 Years 10 Years are an American rock band, formed in Knoxville, Tennessee in 1999. The band consists of Jesse Hasek, Ryan Johnson, Brian Vodinh, Chad Huff and Matt Wantland.

This band isn't that bad I like them.

137 Dir en grey Dir en grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.

Great band, great songs... And the definitely most impressing vocalist there is. If they don't get into the top ten, I'm worried about the people voting here. Just because they're not an American band, that doesn't mean they can't be a whole lot better than them X3

They are genius. They create different styles. There is nothing, they can't do. Dir en Grey will never fade away, they will live forever and nothing will make them go away. Number 1, for now and ever.

Dir en grey are the greates band who make me discover the music. they are so energic and emotional! Every song is unique and so powerful! Thanks DEG for all those experience!

How is Black Veil Brides higher than this?

138 Audioslave Audioslave ...read more.

About time I saw them here, I went through pages and pages of other bands just to find this at 150... Not right at, deserves to be in the top 20 or at least 50, Chris Cornell has one of the best voices rock has ever heard, from up high to the the raspy low voice, just too good!

Audioslave is the rock of all rock... Tom Morello and former lead singer of Soundgarden Chris Cornel

They are just so good. Every single song is a hit. They should be at least top 25 - Battlegun

'Like a Stone' is one of the masterpieces of the 21st century.

139 Dire Straits Dire Straits Dire Straits were a British rock band formed in 1977 by Mark Knopfler, his younger brother David Knopfler, John Illsley, and Pick Withers.

Do The 'Walk Of Life' 'Romeo and Juliet' did. Gosh Dire Straits are like the 'Sultans of Swing' giving us 'money for nothing' but I love that the band is like seeing 'Brothers in Arms' 'Twisting by the pool'

Dire Straits probably is not the best band but are one of the best rock bands and deserve to be at least in the top 20.

Mark Knopfler is also one of the best guitarists I have heard. ROCK ON DIRE STRAITS!

I honestly can't take seriously someone who votes for Guns 'N Roses and says "Best guitarist ever: Slash". That person really never listened to Mark Knopfler.

The sucking on Guns N Roses is ridiculous. They're a teen band who made suckcess (long story short, suckcess is a reference to Bob Dylan) in the eighties and nothing more. Dire Straits was the biggest band in the world in the early eighties, but they did it with mature lyrics, great melodies and the damn best guitarist of all time.

Dire Straits' lyrics were between the best of the eighties (that counts Bob Dylan, who did a terrible decade in the 80s). Dire Straits' albums count the second best of the eighties (losing to Paul Simon's Graceland). And Dire Straits is probably my favorite band (Pink Floyd is also awesome, I'm in doubt, but seeing this awesome band this far from the top was outraging).

If you hear albums like Communiqué, Making Movies and then their masterpiece Brothers In Arms, you'll know what ...more

My favorite band ever. Musical genius= Mark Knopfler. Telegraph Road is insane!
My list would be Dire Straits, AC/DC, The Beatles and all the classics (Black Sabbath, The Who, Rolling Stones, Rush, CCR, etc)

Below black viel brides... Just kill me already... Its top 10 material

This is the best band of rock I have ever heard, I LOVE this band its so awesome I think this band should be first cause really admit it its to awesome to be here I think its number one I my heart and here it has to be too ;) THIS BAND ROCKS

BLACK VEIL BRIDES ARMY FOREVER! They are going to change the world with their music..

They taught their listeners -
Remember not to bleed..
When you feel alone I will always be there
We are the Fallen Angels and we won't cause the pain
Grab your weapons now and we'll run against the crowd...
AND!
TOGETHER WE WILL SET THIS WORLD ON FIRE; THIS IS THE NEW RELIGION.. AMEN!

I really like this band, this band inspires me. I will continue to support the BVB. One of them by introducing the music of BVB in my country Indonesia one of them make a forum BVBarmy on Social network

Not even in the top 100 what!? they are awesome guys and give myself and other people strengh to not give in and making their dreams reality
