55The Rolling StonesThe Rolling Stones are an English rock band formed in London in 1962. The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). more.
56Faith No MoreFaith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Excuse me? Faith No More are pretty much the pioneers of funk rock. RHCP only copied their style when they did Blood Sugar Sex Magic, before that it was all hillbilly stuff. These guys have always stayed to their roots and have experimented with fusing funk with metal, punk and even classical music. - metaldude8

I have no idea who these guys are but I do know that they do not warrant the number 10 spot on this list! Where is The Fatback Band? Slave? or even Chic?

57Arctic MonkeysThe Arctic Monkeys, otherwise known as the Death Ramps, are a British indie rock band formed in 2002 in Sheffield, England. The band consists of Alex Turner (lead vocalist, songwriter, electric and rhythm guitarist), Jamie Cook (electric and rhythm guitarist, songwriter), Matt Helders (percussionist, more.

Another rock band on a funk band list! Are you guys serious? Where is One Way? War? Slave? Zapp?

omfg artic monkeys = best punk band ever! 1
