Best Rock Bands of All Time

Full of poetry and sense, Keane is magic and great music for everybody - pilibelleza
They're just incredible! Listen to Tom's voice and the lyrics and you'll understand immediately... - Eline
Listening to Keane's music is a whole experience, from their early's simple, tender words and unique sound; to their later, more energetic, awesome and electric music.
Pure magic, and the lyrics, oh the lyrics - keaneloverV 20 Comments
Their very existence is an affront to lovers of good music everywhere. Every note causes me pain.
Very under-rated. In the US they are a one hit wonder (One Week) but they are YUGE in Canada! Very loyal fan base (even in the States) Great live show! They improv songs and play around with the audience. Heartbreaking breakup gives us 2 albums each release instead of one, but the whole was greater than the sum of it's parts.
Absolutely, excruciatingly terrible.
Even worse than Nickelback if that's possible. Only Moxy Fruvous surpass them in foulness and shame - sorry rest of world! Signed : Canada.V 6 Comments
This is one of the biggest of the many insults on this list. A lot of you are like,"there so stupid there not even rock". Listen to sabotage, that'll answer that stupid statement. They had one of the most influential and inspiring impacts in music history. Linkin Park and Eminem both said The Beastie Boys were one of the bands they found most inspiring. Stop disliking because you can, and realize what the Beastie Boys of done. At that time, what they did was unheard of and completely new. Not many people can make a completely new style like they did.
Transcended rap to become alternative icons, from the most unlikely beginning to creating works of genius, Beasties did it all and then some. They are rock, they are hip-hop, they are everything good in popular music. KICK IT!
The beastie boy's are legendary, it's pretty sad they aren't even in the top 100
There isn't one album these guys made that isn't great. Not good, GREAT. And three of them are game changing classics. Only Public Enemy are on the same level.V 12 Comments
Really makes me sad that a band like this is at such a low position. All that complexity, skill, and musicianship...
The picture is scaring me, get rid of it please
Probably the most musically complex band in rock history.
What's that you said about King Crimson?
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.
Best rock concert I've ever been to! Godsmack rocks!V 6 Comments
Above Joy Division?! What is this madness?!
It's pretty obvious the Fronz is god
I'm shocked that none of the people voted for firehouse... They were tmalso one of the best band that influenced people during the 90's... They deserve a better position.V 3 Comments
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.V 9 Comments
YEAH! they made a before and after in the world, ALL rock, punk and even pop! are ALL in some way inspired by the pistols and not ONLY music but attitude and looks etc...
they broke all the music rules and social rules that make our day now free
jonnhy rotten and steve jones were the first on earth to swear on TV! they did it on the bill grundy show jonnhy said "s***!" and then Steve said "you f****** rotter!" to grundy!
they are legends and without them the world wouldn't be the same!
when you think punk, you think the pistols.
In the 2 years they were active.. They started chaos around the world JUST THROUGH THEIR MUSIC.
It's enjoyable music.V 20 Comments
Although they haven't been on the scene for very long, Imagine Dragons is a truly fantastic band. They have set the bar for future rock bands with their upbeat tempo and excellent blend of alternative and rock music. If you disagree with me, all I have to say is welcome to the new age.
Hello? No one has a brain this is the best band ever my favourite it's amazing
I know they haven't been around for a while only about a year or two but some of they songs are truly amazing if you don't like them then don't listen to them just to make fun of them. But I think if want to insult them, then you should try singing as good as them and putting a record out. Then you can insult them.
This is the best band. Why it is in 147 it should be above 20..V 27 Comments

If you think DD is only Ordinary World, Notorious, Wild Boys, The Reflex, Hungry Like The wolf or Girls On Film...
YOU'RE SO WRONG!
Try and listen a few more DD songs and... You'll become a Duranie, just like me. :-)
My idols. My inspiration. The best POP, ROCK group.. In the entire world. Long live Duran Duran!
You must be kidding me
Who invented the video clip who made the change in the music industry
Which band started selling over the net
Its duran duran damn it
Four words to describe this band: Hungry Like The Wolf - malamJONESV 45 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.V 5 Comments
What is wrong with you people. No band is more original than Sonic Youth, they basically shaped noise rock and made there own style of music. They have not made one bad album (excluding NYC Ghosts and Flowers, nobody liked that crap) and every song is different form the last.
Long live Thurston Moore, Lee Ronaldo, Kim Gordon, and Steve Shelly.
So many great albums, but not for mass consumption I guess. Take the expressway to your skull!
One of the most important bands ever!
Kim Gordon and Chrissie Hynde most kickass women ever to grace rock. SY are the shiz.V 6 Comments
One man. Tons of talent. His voice is amazing, and there is literally so much talent he could easily take on Coldplay or The Fray. Piano rock at it's best!V 1 Comment
With a vocalist Taylor Momsen known from her role in the T.V. series "Gossip Girl". Great music, strong voice and strong songs! Seen them live and they are amazing! Love them!
The Best Woman (Hard Rock) Voice On The Word. The Best Choked Voice And Special Tone Of Voice On The Word (Taylor Momsen)
Taylor Momsen is definitely the best vocalist I've ever heard... Live versions sound even better than studio!
Smells like poopV 7 Comments
The first ever glam rockers, Marc Bolan did something truly unique here, and who knows what they would have done if it wasn't for that car crash
Influenced artists as diverse as The Smiths and Prince, and Slash and Steven Tyler are also fans of themV 1 Comment
The Cars are one of my favorite bands because they still sound fresh and have a really great sound. People obviously forgot about them because they should be much higher!
One of my favorite bands back in the 80's and still today. Been listening to them lately on YouTube.
People forgot about the cars obviously. needs to be way higher up
Best rock band ever. Their music is still fresh.V 3 Comments
Their first album is a masterpiece that can't be overlooked, one of the best of the last 30 years. Atmospheric, moody, fantastic delivery from Paul Banks and they had one of the greatest bassists out there for a while. Definitely deserves a heck of a lot more than 2013
Turn on The Bright Lights is easily one of the best albums ever created. This band deserves much more recognition. If you don't believe me give them a try. Usually I'd recommend a particular song but with Interpol you simply cannot go wrong.
Go listen to them and you will understand what I am trying to get at. - george23234
Oh wow, these dudes are here, I love their stuff, I don't remember the names though...yeah these guys should be higherV 2 Comments
