Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 7XW
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!V4 Comments
Can't believe I hadn't seen this band on the list before... They are AWESOME. Just try and listen some of their best songs
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.V19 Comments
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.V5 Comments
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.
The Gorrillaz aren't even rock but they're still really awesome
This AMAZING band has an AWESOME history, has made WONDERFUL songs, won GREAT awards, is BRILLIANTLY unique and I simple love everything about it!
This band is amazing. Legendary, compared to the crappy bands that made it higher than this.
Great band...are they considered rock though?V10 Comments
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.V10 Comments
I think Chris Jericho has very good voice,... Fozzy is one of the best heavy metal band ever
Fozzy is the best there is the best there was and the best it ever will be... There deserve a higher place
The only reason people know this band is because of Chris Jericho
I added fozzy here
Please help me take it to the top
This band isn't that bad I like them.
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?V17 Comments
Rammstein should really be first but whatever... Like I care their music is awesome
The best band in the world! This group is very popular, why it must be 75th? It must be the FIRST!
Their music will never die! Lyrics, music and attitude, they have everything!
Rammstein should be in top 10 exactly, at least top 20.V53 Comments
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...
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
Why are they so low?V73 Comments
Motley is the definition of rock n roll! Those guys live and breathe rock n roll! Excess is best, that's their motto. I still cannot believe those guys are still around to tell all the stories. I have been a huge fan since I was 5 years old. And all original members are still doing it together after more than thirty years of decadence. It's very rare I love motley.
80?! OMG... How about Number 1?! Come on.. The ENTIRE Feelgood album? Girls Girls Girls.. Kick start my heart.. Voters are sad...
Seriously?! This low? What other band could defy the grim reaper on many occasions, argue to the point of threatening each others lives, and STILL kick ass any time they are onstage or in studio? Motley Crue is the best rock band in history! They are my SAINTS!
Motley Crue is the best damn rock band known to man this website is a joke. This is an insult to Motley Crue. They are not #137V38 Comments
One of the very few bands that could write the same style of music for almost two decades and still make each album feel like a different experience.V1 Comment
Best Band Ever good Music, Lyrics, Band Members, Everything is good about this band nothing else better then most of the bands on this list. - FateGround592
A great band that deserves to be higher on this list
Great passion, music that relates to anyone, they deserve at least the Top 10.
I think they should be in the top 20 minimumV6 Comments
They may not be super popular but are definitely under-rated! They kick ass!
True! They kick ass! Definitely underrated... Hope they rise up soon to what they deserve
The best music today. Most bands will make the instruments quiet when the start singing, but not Godsmack, they will rock you face off to the very end. And they won't give it back.
Godsmack rocksV6 Comments
They can make the crowd sing in Japanese in unison! What greater band can do that? Make half of the world sing to your songs? That takes true genius and talent.
They simply get their messages across through music that can seep in to your veins. They can hypnotize you and make you sway to words that are foreign to your ears.
They had stayed for 20 years and their music kept on expanding. You can't contain them within just one genre.
The best part is they are a band but still keeping their individuality as persons. They come together and they bring in a sound like no other.
A band that transcends language and has gone on a tour around the world despite singing in only a language native to their own country. L'arc-en-Ciel creates the most wonderful music. With hyde as the vocalist with the sexiest voice, tetsu with his steady bass beats, Ken with his silky guitar moves, and Yuki with his fantastic drumming, this band is not one to be missed and they age like wine, getting better and better over the years. Happy 20th anniversary, and I will be your fan always!
The music they have produced, is just like their name, which means rainbow. The style/genre changes slightly from time to time, but yet, always nailed in with true L'Arc~en~Ciel flavor. There are not many bands out there who can make it to 20th anniversary, but they have done that, and showing no signs of stopping. They slowly taking over the world, and if you haven't heard of them, you had better be, because this is truly one of the best band in the world.

Ascendency is the best metal album I've ever heard. need to be up there in the top 25 atleast. Matt and Corey are two of the 20 best guitarists alive today in my opinion. Paolo plays bass like nothing I've ever heard, and Travis is just hands down the best metal drummer - mike2fristick
I was starting to think that Trivium wasn't on here. Avenged Sevenfold sucks and comparing them to Trivium is like asking if a lion can kill a cat. - Trivium
This is so badwhy trivium in this list they should be in top 20, they have the best metal songs ever they are nu-Metallica.. A7X are nothing they are a normal band but trivium a perfect metal band I've never seen in my hole lifeV4 Comments
I think rob zombie is great and awesome but holly cow is he far down on the list this proves this list is all opinions
Rob Zombie is my favorite singer and he's music is amazing and I love his new song Get High
I love the song Dragula! One of the best songs ever written!
Overrated. Worst lyrics ever.V5 Comments
What? ANTHRAX IS 168? THEY ARE AWESOME! Its like people wont even try and give them a chance! They have brought out amazing songs over the past years, as well as albums! I can't even see why no-one would vote for them :/
Best band ever. Dude they are the thrash metal pioneers. There songs are simply awesome. Whether it be I'm alive, in the end, caught in a mosh or Indians THEY ARE ALL AWESOME. Can't believe THEY are not in this list.
Such an underrated band. Best bass, best lyrics, best vocals, and even the solos are amazing.
