Best Rock Bands of All Time
« see full list
Right now they are the greatest American rock band.
45? Pearl Jam deserve to be well higher than 45, and I can't believe they were even 57 at one point! Ok, Nirvana were the greatest grunge band ever, but they weren't THIS much better than Pearl Jam (although even Nirvana should be higher than were they are). Anywhere Nirvana are on this list, Pearl Jam should be no more than 5 places maximum behind them. I have been listening to their songs non-stop for days and I'm still addicted to them, even my mother loves Pearl Jam!
Pearl Jam is the modern definition of Rock Band Legends! They are what Rock is all about and are definitely a top ten rock band of all time and top 1 or 2 all time alternative band. They just got some kind of magic that when you see them live they become larger than life, they are a huge part of my life as I doubt there's a day in the last 20 years that I haven't listened to at least one of their songs... PEARL JAM Rules!
Seriously, 30? Pearl Jam is one of the top 5 for sure. They're my favorite by far. Everyone should like Pearl Jam, they have everything - weird stuff for weird people (bugs, stupid mop), great melodies and harmonies (yellow Ledbetter, red mosquito), harder rock stuff (blood, spin the black circle) and everything in between. Anyone who doesn't like Pearl Jam doesn't know enough about them.
Disgusting, this should be in top 10 at least. Please vote for it and at least get it into top 5! O many fantastic bands to choose from, but these stand out more than any. Absolutely wonderful range of music that has something for every emotion. Mayonnaise kills me every time.
Pearl Jam is much better than it is listed as. Eddie Vedder's lyrics are just beautiful poetry and the music is nothing short of amazing. It's awful that this band usually gets overlooked when people talk about the greatest bands of all time.
Please look at the previous bands, listen to their samples, then listen to Pearl Jam. 57 is where bands like Paramore should be, bands with uninspiring music and very little lyrical meaning. Pearl Jam is the greatest band on the face of the Earth.
Slow, fast, heavy, deep.. You name it and they have a magical song to fit any of those. Combine this with magical lyrics and a singer who seems to be the pied piper of emotions there's hardly a band to match them. And oh yes they have done what they have done for almost 2 decades! Seriously these guys are magic.. Definitely in the top 5.. And if I wasnt such a big fan of Metallica, Green Day ^^ LZ.. Would say these guys are number one outright
Although Pearl Jam may have cashed in on the success of Nirvana, they were the most successful American rock band of the 90s. They kept classic rock going and contributed with their own incredible talents. Their 60 million albums sold argue that they are better than no name bands like X Japan and L'arc en ciel.
In addition, they just rock so damn hard. Hands down, they should be number one. 15 years on, still crafting undeniably powerful songs that creep right into your soul. Unbelievably talented musicians. Anyone who's ever seen a live set would rate them off the charts - a step above the rest.
Their commitment toward make the world a better place through their activism is one of the main reasons they are the best band in the world. Also the fact they do things on their terms and not get caught up in the bull that runs rampant through the record business.
Ranked number 40, but definitely number 1 in the fans' hearts. Just overall an amazing band with a beautiful, electric chemistry live. I can't thank my dad enough for showing me them, because they have definitely showed me what good music is. Pearl Jam is just so hearty and one of my favorite bands. Their music is indescribably perfect.
Gimme a break. The "rock" bands above like Evanescence make this list a complete joke. Pearl Jam has kept it going for 22 years and they are better than ever. Eddie Vedder has best rock voice ever and Mike McCready is a guitar god.
This list is ridiculous! Avenged Sevenfold ahead of the who, the doors, AND PEARL JAM! Pearl Jam is the best rock band of the last 30 years. Their live shoe is better than 90% of the list and I would know I have seen almost all of them.
What, why are they at 60, this is crap. If you want to get pearl jam to be top 3, just make everybody watch pj 20. Greatest movie greatest band awesome = PEARL JAM! All albums will blow your brain out the back of your skull. Godly lyrics, vocals of an angel, eddie rules!
Pearl Jam has 10 amazing studio albums. Plus an uncountable amount of live albums that are better then every band above and below them on this list. Possibly the worst list ever with linkin park in the top 10. Haha
It's amazing how many bands are on this list because of one or two songs. Pearl Jam needs to be higher so other bands can marvel and be inspired by their talent. It will be the best thing for future music.
To have Green Day in the top ten alongside the typical over-rated bands (Metallica and The Beatles) is shocking. Pearl Jam should be up there for the sheer originality of their albums and message.
This list is a flat out joke - metallica is #1 over Queen, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Who, are you KIDDING ME! The fact that Pearl Jam is this low shows how pathetic the rankings are.
In a 2005 USA Today readers poll, Pearl Jam was voted the greatest American rock band of all time.[
PJ are the greatest! How they can be at 62 is beyond a joke... They should be No. 1!
What are people thinking out there - Avenged Sevenfold at no. 9! Hahaha unbelievable.
Yeah I look at this list and it shows that most who voted 1. Know nothing about what to factor into this poll. They don't take ALBUMS into consideration, only "hits", which is sad
I can't believe that Pearl Jam is 32! They have some really good songs, Even Flow, Jeremy, Alive, Daughter, Go, and so on. Their album Ten, is amazing and you should all get it.
Pearl jam at least deserves to be in the top 15 or 20. Along with nirvana, they were the definition of pop culture in the early 90's and made and continue to make great music.
What is this? Are people out or their minds.. This band is surely should be in the top 3 bands... Magical voice of eddie vedder, mesmerising solos by mike mccreedy.. How can any band be better than pearl jam..
