The worst parts of metal (which isn't good to begin with) and pop (which aslo isn't good to begin with) mixed. -

102MuseMuse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including five MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, ...read more.

Muse is a brilliant band and if you look at other lists on this website for the greatest rock band. Muse is clearly on that list, this list however makes no sence putting some of the best bands of all time here. I don't think muse should be here at all, I think people just don't like the genre so they think all the greatest rock bands are crap. I love muse and it does not deserve to be here.

No other band is nearly as good as Muse.

Shut up all you people. muse is great along with half of this list. I don't really know why they are on here but they are awesome

Why is this even here

103Beach BoysThe Beach Boys are an American rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

The fact that this band is on here confirms what I already knew: the Beach Boys are truly the most underrated band. Maybe because their peak came at the same time as the Beatles. If Brian Wilson had relased SMiLE, and if they could have broken away from the whole surfing, cars, and chicks image, they were on a trajectory to equal, even surpass the Beatles. - beatles

I can't believe the Beach Boys is on here. A worthy competitor of the Beatles. Wait...they're on here too...

Why are the beach boys on here come on whoever made this worthless list. - Ryan_14

Whoever put the Beach Boys on here needs to be sedated

104X-JAPAN

I did't really hate them, but almost all the TepTopTens lists have in the top ten X-Japan or something from them... and they aren't really the best band! - rock2metal

Yes! This is so true! Stairway to Heaven, Holy Diver, Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, Mr. Crowley, Crazy Train, AND Eruption are better than Art of Life! Jimi Hendrix is BETTER than Hide. Ozzy Osbourne is better than Toshi, Heck, EVEN Axl Rose is better than Toshi! - LedZepp81

Even if you create lots of wonderful ballads that doesn't make you a true good artist - ronluna

Just because they're Japanese doesn't mean they suck.

105Eccentric Toilet

Never heard them, don't want to. Just the name man! If you want to be taken seriously come up with at least a decent name for your band, really?

Another crappy band but they choose an appropriate name.

This is almost as bad as Poopfist (a band later in the list). Who came up with this name?

106Beastie BoysThe Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

I'm only 11. Beastie Boys are the best band in the world. I've grown up on them! Really get your head out of the dirt, take a look at life for once!

I was a teenage boy in the 80s, and I had to fight for my right to party, but never would I unleash this dreadful, testosterone-drive drool on another individual.

My uncle knew Adam Yauch personally. Me and my family listen to the Beastie Boys all the Time! They are one of my favorite bands of all time! Who ever made this list honestly knows nothing about good music. And I have absolutely no idea why THE Beatles, ROLLING STONES, Led Zeppelin, U2, RATM ARE ON THIS LIST!

The singer's a pedophile. That alone says everything

109Crazy Town
110Cradle of FilthCradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

I smell bull about these guys being higher than Quiet riot.

If you ever wanted theme music for 'Halloween' in your house this would band's music would keep the neighbourhood kids away while 'trick or treating'. They write such in depth beautiful music

First of all COF shoudnt be on this list they are a death metal band
Secondly there music is awesome and legendary listen to "Absinthe With Faust" you will definitely like them. - Dead-Beat

Never heard of them before... don't think I want to.

They actually exist - NightmareIsHere_

112Foo FightersFoo Fighters is an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of his previous band. The band consists of obviously Dave Grohl (lead vocalist, songwriter), Pat Smear (lead guitarist, pianist), Nate Mendel ...read more.

Nope. Nirvana. Greatest alternative band of all time. Dave is an amazing drummer, and landed well when he jumped from drums to guitar and microphone. Don't put these two on here

Why even this band in this list? They have won Grammy award already for their The pretender...

They are even better than Nirvana because their vocalist wasn't a stoner who killed himself. And NIRVANA is GOOD, which says a lot about the Foo Fighters.

There awesome

113The Pretty Reckless

The Pretty Reckless are one of my favorite bands together with:
Paramore
Muse
Green Day
Evanescence
Tenacious D
Rise Against
Billy Talent
Linkin Park
The Beatles
The Doors
The Rolling Stones
Nirvana
Garbage
No Doubt
Audioslave
Soundgarden
Queens of the Stone Age
Rage Against the Machine

They rock hard.
Amazing mixture of alternative rock, post-grunge, hard rock and heavy metal, but they also have soft ballads.
They have everything!
I saw them live. Taylor is a very talented singer and you can feel a strong band vibe!

They're okay, but the lead singer needs to add more emotion to the songs. When she sings, she sounds cold and aloof. Also, the lyrics are too simple and repetive. This band has potential, but needs to improve. - gothictomboy66

114Electric Light OrchestraThe Electric Light Orchestra are an English rock band from Birmingham. They were formed in 1970 by songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne with drummer Bev Bevan.

ELO does not belong on this list!

115PhishPhish is a band known for musical improvisation, extended jams, blending of genres, and dedicated fan base.
116Red Hot Chili PeppersThe Red Hot Chili Peppers is a Californian funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. ...read more.

Who the hell even put them on the list? These guys redefined the alternative scene and unlike most rock bands of the 90s, stayed popular all of the 90s. Those who say they're bad deserve to die a horrible death.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers is one of the most boring bands of today. Their name does not reflect their most popular songs even a little. The main singer's voice is flat ALL THE TIME, which makes all of their songs sound boring and depressing. If anything, I think the main singer should stop singing and become a rapper instead, since the only thing he is good at is coming up with original rhymes and rapping.

What! Whoever put these guys on the list is a Communist - FireflyNeville

One of the best bands of all time. Don't know why they're on here

117Black SabbathBlack Sabbath are a Heavy Metal band formed in Birmingham, England in 1968 by guitarist and songwriter Tony Iommi, Singer Ozzy Osbourne, Bassist and Main Lyricist Geezer Butler and Drummer Bill Ward . The band got into mainstream after improving after their debut album got negative feedback . In 1978, ...read more.

How can the founders of metal be on this list, they're AMAZING!

First of all, Black Sabbath (Tony Iommi) is the creator of metal music as we know it today. DEATH TO SMALL PUPPIES

How the hell is Black Sabbath one of the worst?! Honestly, they are one of the most influential bands in rock history and they practically started metal. And despite their eerie tunes, they are NOT Satanists. They're the Godfather of Heavy Metal! Something is very wrong with this!

Does anyone think that the creator of this list might be heavily drunk? Or maybe they've just never lived!

118The EaglesThe Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner.

How did THESE guys get on the list. THEY ARE THE ULTIMATE American ROCK BAND. Pink Floyd, Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin are Brittish. But EAGLES? HOLY CRAP! BEST BAND IN AMERICA! They could try a capella if they wanted to. Great harmonies, and masterful guitar playing. Most great rock bands ain't got that - greatesttop10s

What! Eagles are amazing! They don't belong this list.

I don't consider The Eagles a straight forward Rock band. They've always had a HUGE Country music influence in their music.

Hotel California is one of the best rock songs of all time

119Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

Watch a video on YouTube about the "Scumbags of the Internet" by A Dose of Buckley. Just type in A Dose of Buckley Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and you'll see why. Not only are they bad, their attitude is absolutely horrendous too!

Don't get me wrong people, rja are GREAT in the studio and their lyrics do have pretty extreme meaning, but when it comes to live performances, the singer and the rest of the band really need to take lessons, plus they are kind of no different from other decent bands like Fall Out Boy, Blink 182 and Papa Roach.

Not very good in live.. I like their songs, lyrics to be exact.. but in live performances? Naahh!

120Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition ...read more.

What what WTFF Whoever added Led Zeppelin must be devoid of thinking power

I just wanted to say huh? How is Led Zeppelin even remotely associated with any list involving bad music. They have 3 members that are arguably the best at what they do. John Bonham has more talent on the drums dead than 99.9 % of the drummers now, only Neil Peart even compares to Bonzo. Jimmy Paige, all I have to say is Stairway to Heaven and Robert Plant has the BEST! Singing voice ever... Having them on this list is an insult to music lovers.

This list must have been made by people who were born deaf! Anyway, they definitely don't know anything about music. How incredibly stupid! Led Zeppelin our the "godfathers" to modern rock! Everyone today owes their existence to them.

This website needs to get its stuff together and decide because they're on top of the best band ever list, all of their members are top 5 on their instrument list, stairway is top on their song list, the solo is top on their solo list... what the heck guys
