The songs by heart from my generation. Theirs music is the until nowadays because they took to Teenagers and seniors soul.

Musics with stunning melodies and very intelligent lyrics. They ROCK!

2 Sepultura Sepultura Sepultura is a Brazilian heavy metal band from Belo Horizonte. Their first album, Morbid Visions presented a proto-black metal sound with Wagner Lamounier of Sarcófago. Sepultura's sound varies by the album, from thrash metal, groove metal, and even death metal.

Deserves the number 1 spot for sure. Their the only Brazilian band that can rival bands from other countries, listen to arise, roots bloody roots and refuse resist and youll see what I mean - wolphert

I've never even heard of any of these other bands - gelatinbeastworm

Brazilian metal = Sepultura. - IronSabbathPriest

I am from Brasil! (cool,no one cares) and this is the best rock band from here!

3 Titãs

Até 1993, era a minha banda favorita.

4 Charlie Brown Jr.

Charlie Brown Jr. Was created in 1992. It mixed several rhythms like rock, hardcore, reggae, rap and skate punk, creating a unique style. Its lyrics criticized Brazilian society from the youngers' universe perspective and songs' quality are great!

This band was awesome! Unhappily there isn't anymore! But Everybody in Brazil love Charlie Brown Jr even if you don't like Rock you will love this band!

Come on Facebook, I want to add to my friend list

10 Novos Baianos

Mixing rock with samba, awesome!

The Contenders

11 Nação Zumbi
12 Skank

That's a nice name. NOT. Very offensive if you live here and know what it means. But God knows if they are a really good band. Well, good luck to them anyway.

They are really good, and it doesn't matter what's their name it's a good band and their song are the best ones after Legiao Urbana. So I would listen it if I was ya.

Easily one of the greatest latin rock bands ever! FYI their name refers to "skanking" like in reggae and not an a reference to an offensive term.

13 O Rappa
14 Nx Zero
15 Jota Quest

They are total crap. Watered down blue-eyed soul.

To me they are the best.

They are lovable! "Amor Maior" is my favorite song!

16 Massacration


17 Capital Inicial

One of most famous bands in Brazil! As famous as Charlie Brown Jr, everybody know about them. Everybody loves at least on song!

18 Ratos de Porão

I'm brazilian,and of all brazilian bands,this the best!

19 Engenheiros do Hawaii

Interesting outfit, revolving around Humberto Gessinger, who sings, writes and plays the electric bass guitar. Songs loaded with whimsical tirades and political content (leaning to the left and nationalist side).

Best bass lines, great lyrics and very authentic

These guys are the best, along with Legião Urbana. Their songs have really good instrumental parts.

20 Os Mutantes

Best Brazilian band all tine... Sergio Dias is a brilliant guitar player... In the same level of Harrison, Page or Clapton...

One of the most influential Brazilian bands. Just ask Kevin Barnes to name one.

This is an epic band almost always underrated.

The best band ever for sure

21 Scalene Scalene

I don't have words to their work, sounds like they're one of the most famous band in the world

22 Pitty
23 Matanza

The first Brazilian song I ever heard was from Matanza. I've been a fan ever since.

24 Kid Abelha

A girl-band gone serious. Managed to cross the barrier from silliness to meaningfulness in just a couple of years. Almost broke up after the divorce of singer Paula Toller and bassist/composer Leoni. She later learned how to compose and, with the help of the two remaining members (saxophonist Nilo Romero and guitarist George Israel) produced a series of nice and quite intelligent records. She sings well and is very pretty, even in her 50s.

25 Sarcófago Sarcófago Sarcófago was an influential Brazilian extreme metal band. They were fronted by Sepultura's original singer, Wagner Lamounier, and Geraldo Minelli.
26 Shaman
27 Supercombo
28 Black Eagle

New band but perfect sound, love this band... One day it will be in the 1 place

29 Gloria
30 Plebe Rude

One of the most complex punk bands of the eighties: they made use of vocal harmonies (all four of them sung) and were quite above the level of most Brazilian rockers in terms of musicianship. Some lyrics are weak, some are good. Lost some credibility because of a failed attempt to go folkish. Lost two members thereafter. Still active, but obscure.

31 Camisa de Vênus

Rockabilly-inspired band from Salvador, Bahia. Nationalist, angry and often offensive. Lots of foul words and devastating attacks on consumerism, overrating of sex and politics.

32 Biquini Cavadão
33 Blitz
34 Metro
35 Vespas Mandarinas
36 Dead Fish
37 Ira!
38 Le Prodicatorius

Le Prodicatorius (or simply LeProd) is a Brazilian band from Osasco-SP who is changing the hardcore and metal style in Brazil, don�'t be surprised if they appear in RockInRio next years

39 Tópaz
40 Versailles
41 Os Brazões

Mixed Brazilian music with heavy rock in their 1969 album.

42 Quimere
