The "most popular band in the world" is a bad term for them... a better term for them is "the greatest, the most epic and the most awesome band ever"! - rock2metal

They get their own genre of music - maggot-104
16Steppenwolf Steppenwolf is a Canadian-American rock group that was prominent from 1968 to 1972. The group was formed in late 1961 in Toronto by vocalist John Kay, keyboardist Goldy McJohn, and drummer Jerry Edmonton.
17Modest MouseModest Mouse is an American rock band formed in 1992 in Issaquah, Washington, and currently based in Portland, Oregon.
I can't wait until 30 years later when Modest Mouse has broken up, the singer gets shot and everybody's realizing their genius. They'll be talking about Modest Mouse like we do the Beatles, selling 'Best of' albums and documentaries like there's no tomorrow, and Jeremiah Green and Eric Judy will be starting solo projects. Then Modest Mouse will be on the top of this list and in history books and some other bored girl will be wondering "what's so special about them? " and will have her own animal-name band she's voting for and will be writing this same exact thing.
Really, their name helps define their music. I think their music is amazing, but not only is their music amazing and unique, their name is too.
19Porcupine TreePorcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.
Steven Wilson is a genius. They put all these others (exept the Beatles) to shame.
20Dragonforce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.
