What's this the only song I'm like this band is Do I wanna know - Santi12

Arctic Monkey's is good bat. Gorillaz is the best - Santi12

44 The Smiths The Smiths The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce.
45 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.

Wait...The Doors are fiftieth on the list
How is this even possible? - Rocker00

46 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.

47 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

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

Go listen to "Harder to Breathe", "Sunday Morning", "This Love", and more. Especially the Songs About Jane album. You'll be impressed.

Songs about jane is a masterpiece that's all I'm gonna say

48 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

I don't know why people hate Nickelback. They're the best, and here's why:
The music. Burn It To Ground, Follow You Home, Animals, This Afternoon, and more are all awesome.
Them. Unlike most musicians, they can make fun of themselves. In their This Afternoon music video, the premise was that this dude wants to throw an awesome party. He has a friend kidnap a band, and when he sees that Nickelback was taken, he's like:
"Nickelback? Seriously? You got me Nickelback? "
They acknowledged the fact that they aren't very liked! Unlike musicians like Justin Bieber, they can laugh at themselves! Who can hate a band that has that capability? - Grayson

I don't know why people hate you... wait I do, because you like Nickelback. - Powerfultekin

Definitely not my favorite, not a favorite band at all to me, but I'll have to say they get way too much hate. I realize that they are pretty unoriginal, but so do most rap and pop artists. And rock always beats rap and pop.

Definety one of the greatest rock bands

49 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. In 2013 Gontier left the band due to creative differences. He was replaced with Brad's ...read more.

50 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.

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

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

51 ABBA ABBA ABBA were a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

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.

Yep, they are my favourite band, I know quite a few users would know that. Yeah their songs are great. - ivylee

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.

Not only that their every song is so original you think every song is completely different genre, but every song of theirs is about important things. They actually try to tell you something, to make you think. They spread message. Not usual band.

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!

No they suck

55 Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony is an American girl group based in Miami, composed of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui, and previously, Camila Cabello until her departure from the group on December 18, 2016. The group signed a joint record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco Records and L.A.

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.

56 Korn Korn Korn is an American Nu-Metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David ...read more.

Commercially overrated, critically underrated.

They are in my opinion the best band. Who else can scat in metal and make it sound that badass. Plus Jonathan Davis is super entertaining on stage. Head and kinky do great guitar work together and fieldy also bass always sounds catchy and pumps me up. I prefer Luzier over silveria also

My 2nd favorite band their awesome

Korn really I'm love porn - Santi12

57 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

The Bee Gees did a lot of number one during decades they were impressing by the quality of their music and by the quality of their singing, all the songs they made were beautiful and moving, they are the best songwriters singers of all the time.

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.

Bee Gees are the best band of all time! They are the best singer/songwriters of all time.

58 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
