The Contenders: Page 4

61 Helloween Helloween Helloween is a German power metal band founded in 1984 in Hamburg, Northern Germany. The band is a pioneering force in the power metal genre, and their second and third studio albums, Keeper of the Seven Keys: Part I and Part II, are considered masterpieces of the genre.

Legendary band!... For me the coolest and the happiest band ever. It should be so hard to fit each concept. But they made it.

Just an incredible band that makes metal sound fresh!

'Wind mill' is one of the best song

'Wind mill' is one of the best song

62 Slayer Slayer more.

Consistent and heavy, never changed their sound for the populat vote. Slayer is Slayer and always will be.

63 REM

It's the best band that is out there. There is no band like them. You really have to listen to them. They brought out the song which is the best that I have heard which is "It's the end of the world" it's the best!

Greatest band of all time! Incredible music and lyrics. Hits like "Losing my religion" and so many others changed a generation. A band that is timeless, will never be forgotten.

Greatest band since ever. Incredible music and lyrics. Hits like "Losing my religion" and so many others changed a generation. I have no words to describe them, really, it�'s a pitty that new youth may not have the opportunity to listen to them. Different and unexpected, I very much recommend them.

64 Andra and the BackBone
65 The Black Crowes The Black Crowes The Black Crowes were an American rock band formed in 1989. Their discography includes eight studio albums, four live albums and several charting singles.

The Black Crowes are the best band of the 90s. How are they 69th on this list? Jealous again, remedy, twice as hard, my morning song! their most popular song is totally overrated (hard to handle). This band is insanely good

Honest and real music. Great live act!

Great mix of rock, blues and country. They were like the Stones and Zep if they had a baby!

Great rock n roll band

66 Blink-182 Blink-182 Blink-182 are a Pop Punk band formed in 1992. Original lineup were Mark Hoppus (Bass Guitar, Vocals) more.

I've never loved a band as much as I do blink 182

Best rock band of all time

My dad and I love blink 182

Love them so much

67 Böhse Onkelz Böhse Onkelz
68 Neurotic Outsiders
69 L7

Listen to When we pretend that we are dead

These ladies; along with Babes In Toyland, deserve to be in the upper ranks.

70 The Tea Party

Way underrated, probably because they never were marketed/distributed to US radio and markets. Huge Down Under and in Canada. Compelling blend of Jim Morrison mystique, Jimmy Page riffs, and solid musicianship not afraid to use exotic instruments.

Brilliant. Essentially influential and stood alone during the 90's... Should be well into the top 20

! Best Canadian Every!

Easily in my top 15.

Thi band is AMAZING! I don't understand why its this low. It should be in the top 20 at least.

Very talented and underrated band. If they hadn't became such a huge meme on the internet, people would actually be able to realize that.

ok band

One of their signature elements were Ibanez guitars adorned with elaborate airbrushed more.
74 Papa Roach Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

Papa roach should totally be the number one choice for this list which should I mention were for bands who made or still made rock music in the 90s

I'm close to the band papa roach and jacoby (the lead singer) would not be happy being #73 on this list

Papa Roach should be much higher on this list. One of my favorite bands.

Completely disrespectful to put them so low
