44 The Beach Boys The Beach Boys The Beach Boys are an American pop rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

The Beach Boys shall go Much higher they deserve it there music is So Iconic and there Melodies are Up there with The Beatles they deserve the top five at least! Pet Sounds is one of the greatest albums of all time! And SGT Peppers Modeled after it Enough said!

The Beatles' Sgt. Peppers was an attempt to MATCH the Beach Boys. 'enough said.

Why are they 44th? Beach boys made modern pop. Shame what has happened to music.

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.

Twenty One Pilots is ranked at Number 50? Really, these guys are innovative, they refuse to be labeled as a specific genre. - FlakyCuddles43

48 The Doors The Doors The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore.

Love Her Madly, Love Me Two Times, Light My Fire, Riders on the Storm, The End, Roadhouse Blues, Touch Me, Hello I Love You.

The Doors should be higher on this list.

49 Weezer Weezer Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.

Rivers Cuomo could be one of the greatest vocalists I've ever heard. There weird music is awesome!

How did the Bee Gees, a bunch of girly voiced singers beat this amazing band? - Rorywilbren

50 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst. V 1 Comment
51 Creedence Clearwater Revival Creedence Clearwater Revival Creedence Clearwater Revival, often shortened to Creedence and abbreviated as CCR, was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Never heard of these people in my life

Up Around the Bend, Bad Moon Rising, Green River, Travelin Band, Looking Out My Back Door, Have You Ever Seen the Rain, Hello Mary Lou, Suzie Q.

It just goes to show that this vote is meaningless when you have CCR at 76 and have bands like Blink 182 and Coldplay ahead. CCR is a definite top 10 and anyone who says otherwise has never heard them.

52 KISS KISS Kiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

I like them a lot. They are also an insanely famous group and popular. One of the most well known bands of all time I might say.

How the hell is KISS ranked lower than Twenty One Emotional Teenagers?

A plain Classic... You can't have rock music without Kiss - BandsandAnime

53 System of a Down System of a Down System of a Down formed in 1994 as an Armenian-American Nu Metal group from Glendale, California . The band name is sometimes shortened to System or SOAD. ...read more.

I will dare to compare System of a Down with bands like Pink Floyd, Metallica, Led Zeppelin any day. They write masterpieces and Serj vocals are godlike. Period.

Disagree with me and suffer the wrath of the daron - ronijohnson

Yes! Great to see these guys on the list!

System of a Down is a very unique, original band. I would reccomend it for any metalhead looking for new, original material. Of course, you might get caught off guard by their sound, but you'll warm up to it, I bet.

54 Bee Gees Bee Gees The Bee Gees were a pop music group formed in 1958. Their line-up consisted of brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb.

Amazing amazing slow songs in addition to their fast songs. They wrote Emotions, another favourite slow one is Too Much Heaven

Bee gees catalog has got to be one of the best of all time, 90% of the bands on this list can't compare and they were so prolific too.

With The Beatles, they are only band with more then 30 truly great songs.

Staying Alive!

I was very disturbed to see this band on number 58. I am thirteen and know that this band should be in top 20. Purple Haze, Hey Joe, All Along The Watch Tower, does this mean anything to anybody?
