Top Ten Best Bands of All TimeTop ten bands of all time. Ok, it can be anything as long as it's a group of people not a solo singer.
The Top Ten
Why isn't the worlds best at #1. They pretty much have 90% of the worlds popular music records that nobody will ever break. Not to mention they have held these records for almost 50 years, and they have written almost 80% of they're songs, except for the occasionally a 50's remakes that sounded pretty cool to me, and all 4 members went off and got as many number one hits combined as they did in The Beatles. - westofohio

Gotta love John, Paul, George and RingoV 59 Comments
Obviously the Beatles is at number 1. I'm not going to try and change that, they deserve all of the hype they get, they are probably 1 of if not the most talented and original songwriters of all time.
But Queen... Oh MAN.
QUEEN IS AMAZING.
They are so unpredictable, so iconic, so recognizable and just so strangely addictive that it hurts.
Queen is a band that makes you feel how a bend should make you feel: whatever you want. Their songs can be happy, sad, angry, really whatever you want them to be.
Queen is, in my opinion, the greatest band that will ever exist.
I am very tired that the Beatles is number one everywhere, however they didn't have the greatest singer of all time (Freddie Mercury), and didn't have the best song of all time (Bohemian Rhapsody). The 90% of the Beatles songs are so annoying and boring and so simple, like a kid song.
The Beatles are the best band, but Queen is not far behind. Many classics have been produced by them. Including Bohemian Rhapsody, Don't Stop Me Now, The Show Must Go On, We Are The Champions, We Will Rock You, Somebody To Love. But out of all of those, The Show Must Go On is the best.
Queen is a band even better than The Beatles and they had one of the 5 best vocalists of all time, Freddie Mercury!
Queen is awesome and people who think Queen is crap should go eat some rocks and drink poison!
I like this band a lot. In my opinion not the second best but very popular and most people consider it too be one of the best.
Stairway to Heaven, Black Dog, Heartbreaker, Ramble On, Rock and Roll, All My Love, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, Good Times Bad Times, Whole Lotta Love, Dazed and Confused, Communication Breakdown, Immigrant Song.
Zeppelin gives you a bit of everything. Jimmy Page is a guitargod, no one writes riffs like him. This is rock n roll at its best.
Great bandV 27 Comments
These kind of songs can enter to your soul and brain. - savau015fulau015fkaratau015f
I'd always get into a band for a little bit and then forget about them the next week, I got into Pink Floyd and can not stop listening to them, I can listen to all their songs over and over and it gets even better
If this band isn't somewhere on your top ten list, regardless of where, you are clearly not an intelligent human being. no excuses - ronijohnson
Queen second? Come on its got to floydV 27 Comments
why did I have to add this item up? metallica is one of the greatest bands ever. I thank james hetfield and lars ulrich for creating a band this amazing. - munkee_linc97
awesome band! extraordinary music. guitars, drums, vocals, all combine perfectly to create the best metal band in the world with the best music. should be at least at the top 10.
As a band they have done it all, ground-breaking sound when they first came out, become the king of their genre, break into the mainstream, experimenting with their sound and facing their inner problem, and now coming out strong and kicking ass. Few band reach this far
There is no equalV 16 Comments
Under My Thumb, Gimme Shelter, Jumpin Jack Flash, Brown Sugar, Sympathy for the Devil, Satisfaction, Ruby Tuesday.
How are these legends behind amateurs like Linkin Park and Avenged Sevenfold?
Mom loves this band, grandpa too, I like it, this band can be a beast in fame, and fandom.
Taking the piss 6th? should be 4th at least friendsV 6 Comments
Yes I may be a teenager but my opinion still matters. Kurt Donald cobain is one of the major influences of my life. Kurt said that people read to much in his music and try's to make it what it is not, but true nirvana fans do not have to have an explanation on what certain things in his music meant we just know that when we listen to it we are at home and have a place to fit in. - Anarchy8675309
Well, I just have always liked the band and the style, but I don't think it's the best band around, musically it's not very complex.
Nirvana's songs can become a life philosophy for somebody. All of the Nirvana songs are special. - savau015fulau015fkaratau015f
They show us that you don't need to be a genius if you want to be become famous!V 12 Comments
Green Day should be in the top ten. They have songs of many different genres, such as Punk Rock, Pop Punk, Alternative Rock, Power Pop, Garage Rock, Acoustic, Ska and even Screamo. Tre Cool is probably one of the best drummers on Earth, and Mike Dirnt is probably one of the best bassists ever. Billie Joe's lyrics were good at first, but they just keep getting better and better. His vocals are also improving over time. Some of his guitar solos (especially from the early albums) are absolutley insane. They have sold over 75 million albums worldwide, making them one of the best selling artists of all time. 'Dookie' is certified as diamond in the USA, and it is the best selling punk album and also the 57th best selling album of all time. They have stood the test of time, as they have been together for 30 years. They are also one of the most influential bands ever, inspiring many other artists such as Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Lady Gaga, Busted, McFly, Steve Rushton, ...more - Legendary_Green_Day
Green day, they are the back talking anarchy type of band. To me they are the definition of rebellious teenagers. They are also one of the most rebellious bands to have come around so far. And they are the band to turn to when you either want to cry, or just be alone and say f the world. And we all seem to love it and always will. - Anarchy8675309
Green Day is an American punk rock band. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong, bassist and backing vocalist Mike Dirnt, and drummer Tre Cool.
Green Day is love. I don't know how these guys have produced so many songs that just cling to the heart. I can just listen to Green Day for the rest of my life. And let's face it, we all will have at least one of theirs in our 'best of all time' playlist. Seriously man, their music is dope...
People compare the new Green Day with the old one but the thing is that they have just widened their arena. This new Green Day knows no limits. It isn't confined to punk rock. So many reasons to love those sons of bitches.
And why doesn't BJA age?
Apparently, Linkin Park is Alternative Metal. And why Tokio Hotel is in the 1st place? They're just overrated!
the combination of Hip hop with Rock is outstanding...
This is good band, their songs is very easy listening. - deni4
Best of best of best band,
Their live song is just awesome,
Watch live in milton kynes, live in texas etc
Chester can sing like angel and scream like devil
What is AC/DC doing here? Last time I checked they were 5. I'd make them 1 if it was my website. There music just gets you pumped up and in the rock and roll mood. AC/DC FOREVER!
I love AC/DC there the top band that ever lived - rocknrollhorselover
They are the best band ever - masonkv

I'm very devastated that the 'Singer' is now gone so sudden. R.I.P to such a 'Brill Vocalist' who won't be forgot.
Definitely the best band. Iron Maiden, you opened my doorway to heavy metal. - IronSabbathPriest
Iron maiden easily kicks tokio hotel's arse. At least Beatles should be number 1 or Led Zeppelin - metallipotter
Its done well to be number 12, but should be much much higher.
Best band ever best vocal best guitar this band is higher than other.V 10 Comments
They are in 19th place? they deserve much more! Run DMC, Tenacious D, Avenged Sevenfold, Symphony X, D12 and Bee Gees before GN'R!? I'm not trying to say those bands are bad, BUT GUNS N' ROSES IS MUCH BETTER THAN THEM! - rock2metal
Something is wrong with the people that have been voting here so far... Chester is undoubtedly the greatest. I mean, who else can do a full 17-seconds-scream AND cover an Adele-song in such an absolutely breathtaking way? Check out the outro of Faint @ Rock am Ring 2007 and come back to the voting afterwards!
Guns and roses, hm hard to explain. They give you a sense of what was and is to come although they are no longer together they will forever continue to enrich people's lives. - Anarchy8675309
They are the best band in the world hands downV 12 Comments
Okay every fan of any kind of rock music (metal and alternative included) should have every rock band in front of idiotic one direction.
Prog at its finest
Awesome, but underrated band. - IronSabbathPriest
They're are way overrated.Just because they are talented doesn't mean they are one of the best bands around.Music should come from the heart!V 6 Comments
Black Sabbath is one of the most influential bands in rock history and one of the bands that inspired many of the bands that we have today. And the original singer (Ozzy Osbourne) is not called the "Prince of Darkness" or the "Godfather of Heavy Metal" for nothing. They should be much higher. They rock and they are the Godfather of Metal! Long Live Black Sabbath!
Thank you Sabbath for bringing us metal. - IronSabbathPriest
First metal band ever. And one of the best ever as well. - Caleb9000
HOW ARE THEY NOT ON THIS LIST. - FlaMeThrOwer9V 3 Comments
How the hell are One Direction above them?
Radiohead are the best band with the most original music. No one else has done a 'Kid A' and I don't think they ever will. 1D is a generic pop boy band. They don't have lyrics like: "Maybe you'll be president, but know right from wrong" or "We are accidents waiting to happen"
I've noticed that smart people like Radiohead. The less intelligent people think they're 'too weird' 'too boring' or 'too whiny'. If you can listen to The Tourist while looking at the sky and say 'too whiny, ' you are a robot.
Bon Jovi, Linkin Park, Dragonforce, guns and roses don't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as Radiohead. Beatles, Rolling Stones, Nirvana, R.E.M, Muse, Cure, Elvis Costello, Hendrix Experience, Zeppelin, Ramones, Sex Pistols and The Clash sort of do.
Kid A is one of the best albums I've ever heardV 17 Comments
One of my personal favorites but not better than the rest of the bands listed.
How is Green Day above The Who?
Linkin Park, Coldplay, and Green Day are not better than the band with the best bassist, drummer, and songwriter ever
HOW THE HECK IS Coldplay ABOVE THE WHO? Name five Coldplay songs now. Now name five who songs. I can. Baba o Riley, my generation, behind blue eyes, pinball wizard, who are you. And that isn't even getting into the the other stuff. Coldplay had livin la vida and kind of paradise. THAT'S IT. - DJCosmicV 6 Comments
Avenged sevenfold gives you a will to be weird. You may have different styles and things to say than others but that's normal. Don't be afraid to be yourself and avenged sevenfold along with nirvana gives you that. I mean he'll where do you think artists these days got their inspiration. - Anarchy8675309
These guys don't care what other people think about them or their music. It is addicting. My favorite band personally. They should be at #1
Best ever band... I love this band because they guys are best friends first...
Avenged sevenfold is the best band ever! it has amazing metal put into it and also has the most electrical hermonics I have ever heard honestly may be a little better than eddie van halen it also has a extremely great guitarist sinister gates and defidently my favorite drummer who died and extremely sad about the rev the voice of matte shadows is amazing and can use words knowone could ever use there A7X (avenged sevenfold album) is by far the best there afterlife, gunslinger, and critical acclaim is my favorite from that album here are my favorite songs by them 1. gunslinger 2. critical acclaim 3. nightmare KEEP MAKING ALBUMS AVENGED SEVENFOLD I BELIEVE YOU WILL BE THE GREATEST!V 4 Comments
OH, Are they? Could they make a 20 minutes long song like Yes, who are under them? Could they make a good guitar solo like Van Halen, that is under them, or just any solo like The Who, who can also describe the feelings of a whole generation (and is under them)? Do they play their Instruments as good as the musicians from Deep Purple? Did they make a music genre better, like Black Sabbath? Did they make Experiments like King Crimson? Did they experiment anything at all? No, I don't think so. They can't even play the Blues! Or can they, like The Doors...
Here Some who deserve the spot, or even higher: The Doors, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Judas Priest, Van Halen, Can, Cream, ELP, King Crimson, Deep Purple, The Who, Alice In Chains, Black Sabbath, Asia, Yes, Tin Machine, Manfred Manns Earth Band (Yeah, they play pretty awesome Moog-solos, specially live, the still tour being in the 70's of age), Pearl Jam, Bon Jovi, Grateful Dead, System of a Down, Alice In Chains, Lynyrd ...more - waldo
Coldplay should at least be in the top five. The creative, beautiful melodies that have calming qualities are now, in this darn decade, unique to Coldplay. I remember listening to Yellow as a little girl. Remebering the tune and coming back to remember it just before end of year exams. So calming and beautiful. The first time I heard Viva la Vida, the boring car trip suddenly wasn't so boring. And Paradise. I was literally in paradise when this song started playing. There are many, many more songs of theirs that I love, but these ones made my childhood so worth remembering.
I cannot fault this band. Four down to earth, creative, talented and humble guys who make amazing and diverse tracks that have beautiful lyrics and kick-ass riffs. I know every word of Viva La Vida and I can't help belting it out every time it comes on the radio. Chris, Johnny, Will and Guy, I LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH!
They are amazing and all their songs have different melodies, which makes every song brilliant in different ways.V 37 Comments
One of the best rock bands of the 80-90 era...Their earlier albums sound so fresh even today.
Impossible! How is this at 31st place, below One Direction and Twenty One Pilots! Outrageous. - DennisLai290
Aerosmith needs to be higher. They are the "Bad Boys from Boston" and they rule! They got so many great albums/hits and they are a rock legend! Definitely one of the best and most influential bands in the world! Aerosmith forever!
AEROSMITH IS THE GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIME! Why is Tokio Hotel in front of them, I don't even know who they are! - SuperCharged
All the list is ok, but Aerosmith needs to be higher! - rock2metal
