They deserve to be higher for the song Buddy Holly alone. Legit.
Weezer gave birth to soulfull rock song writing and rocked the 90s. They also came out with a revitilizing album in 2007 that broke the silence of bad music from the time period between 2004 and 2006. They kept the ball rolling and deserve to be within the top 30

Korn is such a wonderful and cool and amazing band. Johnathan Davis knows how to rock the nation! He's an inspiration and a leader in this messed up world. He was bullied and beaten in high school, and a lot of his songs are about the traumatic experiences he suffered from those evil teenage bullies. Korn should be in the top 3 along with Evanescence and Paramore!

99 Motley Crue
Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.
If you are a child of the 80s, rock music is what MTV played. On that basis, this is the perfect rock band. Individually, only one of the players is truly elite (Lee). But their concerts were worth every penny, and their exploits were pure legend. The critics can hate all they like, but the Crue keeps laughing all the way to the bank.
This band is garbage. If you want good music listen to Breaking Benjamin.
Maybe not #1 but defiantly top 10. So how come down here at 99!
Motley crue should be at least in the top 50 best amnerican bands
