Best Finnish Rock Bands
The Top Ten
I love Nightwish. I have loved Nightwish since I was 6 years old. They are definitely the best band out there. Not only is their music astounding, but their lyrics are out-of-this-world. I think their best album is Dark Passion Play, because it is so dark and deep. I'm not a person who listened to Nightwish's new album, Endless Forms Most Beautiful, and said, "They sound interesting." I've been with them since Dark Passion Play and I love their songs like Romanticide, The Greatest Show on Earth, and Eramajarvi. I love them so much that I can sing song such as Eramaan Viimeinen, and I don't know the language of Finnish. Nightwish deserves the top spot in anything they do, and Tuomas should totally be the best songwriter ever. Saying Nightwish is terrific is the understatement of the century.
I have been a fan of classic and hard rock most of my life (Ok, I still love ABBA) and hearing the two fused together so naturally is astounding. Love it so much we are going to name our speed boat "Nightwish" when it is finished. Tuomas is a musician's musician. Love the older material but Story Time would be number one at present. The melody and lyrics would be perfect for a movie
Script I have... Darn they bet me to it.
When it comes to total music experience there is Nightwish and after that...Nightwish alone.
From Quebec city, BRAVO NIGHTWISH! We love you.
H.I.M. most popular and lovely rock band in Finland. so they must be in this place exactly... their music is something... it helps to live and feel better, thats why they are number one in the world)))
HIM HIM HIM is the best band ever this band is my life! HIS has the most beautiful songs and live performance and Ville Valo is the best singer in this world he wrote the most beautiful song and the best is Gone with the sin I love him and HIM xD
Ville has one of the most amazing voices I have ever hear! I was in love with this band from the first time I hear their music and long before I knew what they looked like, now that I've seen these guys live I'm even more in love with the music
HIM does have the power to heal, as I found out for myself over 7 years ago. Besides being a lovely group of fellows, they are ultra-talented and serious about their musical pursuits. HIM is a gift from the universe. THE BEST BAND!
Just a kick in your face band..good riffs and in your face music
Good old kind of heavy rock with new ingredients.
Apocalyptica is my second best band my number one band is Poets Of The Fall and I'm wondering why it's not on the list?
I love kalmah
Excellent, excellent band! These guys rock!
I love them since I was 15.i'm 26 now. They are different on every album but they are still good. Its one love, one life...
THE BEST! FANTASTIC SONG, MUSIC, LYRICS! I love them veery very much! Lauri is my love.. I'm the biggest fan.. I wish I see them live one day.. :')
Despite of the lack of the instrumental armony in their tracks the voice and the lyrics are incredible also the feeling and the message of their songs "keeps your heart broken"
A long-term favourite band of mine. They're experimental, deep and original. There's little more that needs to be said.
I disagree with anyone claiming they are even minutely similar to HIM.
Poets of the Fall is one of my favorite bands of all time and I live in the United States of America... Rock on!
If you're looking for some soulful music, beautiful wordplay and some mesmerising instrumentation, then this is the band you should check out. These poets are FAR better than their American, mainstream counterparts. Some songs are pure genius, and a few can haunt you (this goes for the music videos of a few too). And the best thing is that each song delivers something new, be it in terms of lyrics and/or in terms of the music! And of course, you have Maarko's brilliant vocals! An amazing band indeed!
Sucks that I had to vote PotF just to get a mention that this is by far the blandest, most generic radio friendly rock band Finland has ever produced alongside Sunrise Avenue. The singer has just as much charisma as a lamp post and the rest of the band is just exciting, too.
I agree with you about Sunrise Avenue being too generic, but can't say the same with Poets of the Fall. They actually have more experimentation in their music and their lyrics are not generic or predictable by any means.
This is the best Finnish band of all time...Clearly fools are voting!
Amorphis rules! They've been going in for almost 20 years and they're still going strong and their albums just keep selling and so on. They are by far the best band in Finland and one of the top five bands in the world.
Kalmah receiving more votes than this band is ridiculous.
Best melodic metal band ever heard!
This band is just like wine.They get better with age.Love them.
The 1981-84 version is the first and so far the only true rock band to come out of Finland. Goes to show how out of touch with reality some people are when crap like Poets of the Fall gets ranked higher..
One of the most important bands in history of rock
Even Slash had said that guns n roses would not exist without hanoi rocks
The best band ever! I have loved them from the first time I heard their songs!
Just a great band, great songs, great costumes, great performances, great effects. They wera heavy monster costumes and they can still rock the audience out. I just love them. COME ON LORDI FANS
They won eurovision song contest 2006.
About all I listen to anymore... Love them!
I love their music. This is a cool band!
No way are they 17, there number 1
Even though h.i.m. rules the world. The 69 should be #2 and #3 should be negative. All you dumb people that voted 4 the other 16 bands need to wake up. Helsinki vamp 4 life.
Peter than eighteenth.
Ew pop rock
