Top Ten Best Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 2
YES YES YES YES YES YES! How did stinking One Direction get higher than this awesomeness?
They're not as great as The Beatles, Bon Jovi, Pink Floyd, or Nirvana but they deserve the spot they have. They're one of today's best bands. Way better than than garbage that some people refer to as "One Direction".
No one direction can not beat this band! Imagine dragons are my life!
For me, the only bands worthy of being mentioned in the same sentence as ID are FOB, The 1975, Bastille and alt-J. These guys are just amazing! P.S. today (9th March 2017) they released a new song: Whatever It Takes, along with an album announcement, album tracklist announcement and a world tour announcement. The album is only eleven tracks long but is probably stunning. You can pre-order it on iTunes now.
These guys should be #1, followed by alt-J at #2, The 1975 #3 + Bastille #4. Ooh, and FOB #5. Then DMA's at #6.
IDGAF about The Beatles, they're bs, IDGAF about The Who, they're bs,
IDGAF about Coldplay and Radiohead, even though they're quite good, ID are infinitely better.
IDGAF about that bs people refer to as 1D, they're just some gayboy teen f-ers who cannot f-ing sing!
IDGAF about Blur, WGAF how long anyone has been around, ID have been going non-stop for 6 years, whereas other bands have been on hiatus for ages (1D, if u can call em a band)
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
Some amazing hits that get you singing passionately alongV 2 Comments
This shouldn't even be on the list no offense but they are to depressing boring bland and your average boring metal band Made to influence the Youth into thinking they are cool By Listening to people screaming with Crappy Guitar riffs and music Awful choice I can see why they are 34 though
The music touches your heart and you can't help but love Andy Biersack, Ashley Purdy, Jake Pitts, CC, and Jinxx - BandsandAnime
While not my pick for the best band, and probably not that close to my pick, I love BVB. They are an amazing band, who should really get more appreciation for what they do. They have matured over the years, and they have always been awesome. Keep rocking.
Favorite band ever. Very talented, amazing lyrics and amazing voices. They're hilarious and sweet and have an attitude towards assholes. Their lyrics feels like poetry. Andy's deep voice is my New Religion see what I did there? . They're just awesome in general and deserve more recognition.V 1 Comment
My God, this band does not deserve to be on this list, let alone 21st place. Knowing how to look pretty on stage and getting a bunch of 13 year old girls' wet does not make them the best band ever. And to anyone talking about how great their personalities are, there are tapes of them signing autographs, while rating each of the girls' attractiveness from 1-10 with their butt buddies. I dislike people who are fans of bad music, but I hate people who obsess over people who take them for granted and treat them like crap.
God, One Direction!? Above ALL the good bands is no one but ONE DIRECTION...
I hope their tour bus gets stuck at a dead end because they can only go one direction so they'll be stuck there for forever.
They're only going one direction, and that's down.
Take them off of this list NOW! - Caleb9000
I don't know why are they getting all this hate.They are one of the best bands in the history.V 27 Comments
Groups like 1D and Fifth Harmony aren't TERRIBLE but they definitely should NOT be this high. They barely even qualify as bands, none of them play instruments (at least on stage they don't). - TheEvilNuggetCookie
Um no get this off the list
Fifth Harmony is truly one of the best bands ever. They represent various aspects to make a good pop group: vocals, lyrics, quality, choreography, beats and videos. They are the embodiment of top-notch pop music.
Camila, Lauren, Ally, Normani and Dinah all cover the entire vocal spectrum from Lauren's alto to Camila's soprano. Their music is relatable for every mood and covers the entire emotional spectrum. The choreography is amazing, the lyrics are empowering and the music videos, while a bit sexual, are artful and not pornographic. Lastly their image is clean and positive and they are amazing role models.
WHY ARE THEY ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE?
THEY SHOULD BE IN THE TOP.
THEY'RE A VOCAL BAND WHO EMPOWER PEOPLE.
ABBA is my favourite music group! I listen to their songs everyday and never get bored. Bjorn and Benny composing and writing amazing songs with Agnetha and Frida singing is just the best! Although they had split up, their music is timeless and never forgotten! I always love ABBA and will forever! It will be the best to travel back in time and go to one of their concerts or even better, getting autographs and meeting them in person! Indeed, they are one of the greatest bands ever and should be higher on this list!
Other than the Beatles, no band on this list is close to selling as many records as ABBA. They will go down in history as the best pop group ever.
Surely the greatest pop band ever. Their music has stood the test of time and will continue to do so. They are as popular now as they were in their heyday.
Oh my goodness their catchy songs and harmony are so addicting I LOVE THEM SOOO MUCHV 5 Comments
My chemical romance to me is more of the emotional band. Not in a sappy cry my eyes out band but the band that with their melody and lyrics seem to express the Words that your heart can't. In an emo don't know what to do or say way. - Anarchy8675309
I'm so happy to see them this high up. My Chemical Romance were the first band I remember hearing as a young child, and through my pre-teen years, and it broke my heart when they broke up. Their music is inspirational, meaningful and powerful, and they're still my favourite band to this day.
My Chemical Romance is an American alternative rock band from New Jersey. The band consists of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, and bassist Mikey Way.
How is One Direction above these geniuses? Their music inspired me and brought me out of my depression. They are the ones who pick me up when I'm down, besides who needs One Direction if you can have Two Ways. *badumtss*V 15 Comments
In my opinion this should be #1. The rest of them you can get bored with, but not u2 band.
What can I say about U2 except Bono is a LEGEND!
U2 is not top 5. You obviously have no idea what your talking about - jake_m1575
Probably deserve to be in the top ten, maybe even the top 5 - Jiorl
How are they so lowV 1 Comment
My favorite band that isn't rock or metal.
53? You're kidding me, right? Twenty One Pilots have so many amazing songs that have deep, meaningful lyrics. How is trash like One Direction above them?!
Twenty one pilots are just... AMAZING.
Currently my favorite band. Can someone get One Direction off this list? The fact that they are above a great band like this is just insulting.V 11 Comments
Amy Lee has such a powerful voice, and the band makes absolutely stunning music. I'm the only person in the new generation I know who knows who Evanescence is.
Amazing female vocalist... Strong voice that I could never pull off - BandsandAnime
Founded by Amy Lee and Ben Moody.
Best Alternative band,
Best female-fronted band
Best Gothic band,
Best Nu-metal band
Best rock band and...
BEST BAND EVER!
Love you Amy and Ben...
Definitely deserves to be number 1.
The only Maroon 5's song I like is Daylight, the rest are junk. I wonder how could this above band like OneRepublic, Thirty Seconds to Mars, The Script, American Authors, Daughtry, Simple Plan, Train and Imagine Dragons. - RichardSSG
Soulful songs with great lyrics.
How are they behind One Direction? This is complete crap. Maroon 5 is the best pop band of all time. The only pop bands that compare are the Bee Gees, Coldplay, and OneRepublic - jake_m1575
I admit, Maroon 5 used to be good.
They are far from good now.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, go and listen to "Harder To Breathe", then listen to "Sugar" (Listen to sugar at your own risk, it is a terrible song). Maroon 5 has went downhill on a 90 degrees angle.
Hey seriously I disagree with you. If you think that they are getting bad because of the song sugar you're wrong. Because just because you don't like the song doesn't mean other people won't. I personally love the song sugar and have it downloaded on my Samsung phone. It is a pop and I love pop songs because they are catchy and upbeat and my favourite kind of songs! So just because you don't like the song doesn't me we won't and it also doesn't mean that they are getting bad because lots of people like me love that song! - LuLup
Songs about jane is a masterpiece that's all I'm gonna sayV 8 Comments
Sammy Hagar will always be remembered as the real Van HalenV 2 Comments
Muse are an English rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, The band consists of school friends Matthew Bellamy (lead vocals, guitars, piano, keyboards, keytar), Christopher Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals, keyboards, guitars, harmonica) and Dominic Howard (drums, percussion, synthesizers, sampling, harmtar).
As a person who listens to One Direction, I must say that Muse deserve to be WAY ABOVE them on this list. I might get hate for this, but their music is revolutionary and could even be on the top tens, if not top twenties, in my opinion.
Muse and Radiohead below One Direction?! That's ridiculous! - Rorywilbren
Muse is good bat not for number 28 - Santi12V 2 Comments
I love this band, one of the best British rock band ever. Their songs like Don't Look Back In Anger, Wonderwall and Stand By Me are stunning, I can't get bored listen to their songs. Noel Gallagher is a genius, no doubt.V 2 Comments
Basically the only good band that hasn't broken up and is still good to this day.
Common guys I love this band is the best band of 2000s - Santi12
They are already on the list.
Creative - EgV 1 Comment
I love Panic! At the disco and they should be a lot higher but not before fall out boy
I love them so much and they are one of the few bands which all the way through I have loved. - urielectric
My favorite band!
HOW IS PANIC! NOT IN THE TOP 5? HOW ARE THEY BEHIND FIFTH HARMONY OR ONE DIRECTION?! THESE GUYS REVOLUTIONIZED THE POP ROCK CULTUREV 5 Comments
One of the best rock bands of the 80-90 era...Their earlier albums sound so fresh even today.
