100? Is this a joke or is this list based solely off radio top 40 play?

One of the best bands known for their songs "i'm just a kid" and "Perfect". Their band name and songs are known until now.

110 Deep Purple Deep Purple Deep Purple are an English rock band formed in Hertford in 1968. They are considered to be among the pioneers of heavy metal and modern hard rock, although their musical approach changed over the years. Originally formed as a progressive rock band, the band shifted to a heavier sound in 1970. Deep Purple, more.

Since in 90s hard rock bands' numbers are very few, in this case Deep Purple has to come here. Cause more or less they've always been a hard rock band. - zxm

Even though people pretend not to like Limp Bizkit, they were truly one of the most popular hard rock acts of the late 90s and deserved to be recognized

One of the greatest band I whole rock history!

How the hell is Limp Bizkit so low on this list? Not that they are the top ten or anything but wow.. not this far down. They should be in the top 20 for sure.
