This is ridiculous. How is this band so far down the list. - sextysex

Wow this is joke.. Should be in top 20. Awolnation? Imagine Dragons? Seriously..

This is retarded. Two of Dave Grohl'Grohl's bands are in the top 10 and this band is barely top 150.

168 Noah and the Whale

Noah and the Whale is an amazing band. Their best songs include 'Just Me Before We Met', 'L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N.', 'Waiting for my Chance to Come', 'Life is Life' and 'Tonight's the Kind of Night'. However, don't listen to their first few albums; only listen to their latest one, titled 'Last Night on Earth'.

170 AFI

One of the most compelling musical acts ever. Every album breathes a new style. From the punk sounds of their early years to the post hardcore sounds of black sails, the dark tones of Sing the sorrow. To the radio friendly style of december underground and crash love. You can't go wrong there is an AFI song for everyone

One of the most underrated bands on the planet. They inspired so many bands and were leader in the genre, they deserve more respect than they get! I love AFI and I always will!

This is pathetic! They were my all time favorite. In high school. They clearly don't get the credit and respect they deserve!

171 The Rasmus The Rasmus The Rasmus are a Finnish rock band that formed in 1994 in Helsinki while the band members were still in upper comprehensive school.
172 P.O.D. P.O.D.

I am trying to figure out why this band was not on the list, I really like them. They have a really cool Rap/Rock sound and I have never heard another band come close in terms of Rap metal. They also have really good lyrics, they actually have lyrics that are something more than just hating people and ranting about how unfair life is.

178 Jethro Tull Jethro Tull Jethro Tull were a British rock group, formed in Luton, Bedfordshire, in December 1967. Initially playing blues rock, the band soon developed its sound to incorporate elements of British folk music and hard rock to forge a progressive rock signature.

This band is EXTREMELY underrated! It's more rock than alternative, but they have their own unique and incredible sound - especially with the flute! (If you're a flute player like me, you will love this band ngl.)

179 Bon Jovi Bon Jovi Bon Jovi is a hard rock band formed in 1983, which had a streak of successful albums in the late 1980s.

180 Cage the Elephant

How is cage the elephant not higher they are one of the only bands with an original sound in music today. With songs like in one ear and back against the wall the are easily the best band out there today.

Very original sound. I have to admit though, that their first album was vastly superior to their second, Aberdeen and Around my Head being the exceptions. I hope they make more music some time soon.

A fairly popular band that just happens to be one of my favorites, and I don't see them on the list.

Just confused as to why they are this low, lol
