189 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

Coheed and Cambria deserves to be higher. Even if you don't understand the story behind their music, you can still enjoy it without any problems. Claudio Sanchez is an amazing songwriter and he and his band deserve all the respect they get.

Coheed and cambria are the most talented band around today in my opinion. If you haven't listened to them, you're missing out

Coheed and Cambria is one of the best contemporary bands, there CDs follow a series of comic books written by singer Claudio Sanchez and every album takes you to a world beyond imagination, not to mention they put on an incredible show

190 The Royal Concept
191 The Letter Black
192 Artcell Artcell Artcell is a Bangladeshi progressive metal band formed in October 1999. According to The Daily Star, a leading English national daily, Artcell is "one of the leading bands of the country".

Oh, they are here. Anyway depends on what time you're talking about. They're not really modern. Not also classic. They are between two of these. Their best works were in their prime days. Back in early 2000s. Not a big hit of 2010s. But their second album is still spinning for the best Bangladeshi rock album ever. - zxm

Great Aussie rock band! They don't have any bad songs unlike 95% of all other bands who only have a few good songs.

What is with the ranking system On this site its worse than donald trump memes

194 Rival Sons

This is the best "new" band I have heard since 2000. I can't think of another band that has come in that time-frame that can touch these guys. If you like Zeppelin style rock and roll these are the guys to listen to. I feel bad in a way of saying that because everyone seems to relate them to Zeppelin but it is the best way for me to describe them. They should be in the top ten not 216 for crying out loud. I wish these guys would get more traction because they are really good.

If you don't know about this band you need too. If you are into the classic/modern rock sound you can't be this band. They are a power band set up and Jay the singers voice will beat any band on this list. Check them out- "Head Down". "Pressure and Time" "Rival Son ep" "Before the Fire" are the albums- If you have want a short list of what to listen too- "keep on swinging; pressure and time, face of life, memphis sun, torture, you want to, manifest destiny prt 1"

The only real rock band from our time

Rival Sons #198? Please update your ears ;-)

195 Stuck In Your Radio

Eddie Cardona Jr (SlyFoxHound) has an amazing voice and him and every other band member are awesome! Every song has a great meaning and just can't be turned off.

SIYR is the greatest band of all time. Once you hear Homies Unite or SlyFox and the Crious Cat you'll fall in love with them

196 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

It's bands like this that give me hope for the future of rock. Their critical success and consistency equal any of the great bands of the past, even if their commercial success may not. They have become quietly influential and are greatly admired within the rock community for their musicianship, song writing and sonic capabilities. The greatest band you've never heard of indeed!

There music is varied and their music is so creative yet not too far off like a lot of prog bands. They go from flowery alt to amazing psychedelic and bordering on art metal. Just listening to songs like Stars Die, then Fear of a Blank World, they are fantastic and deserve WAY more recognition than they have.

Well they may not get the recognition that some bands do, but they certainly have a devoted fanbase and critical success that puts most bands to shame. I honestly rank songwriter Steven Wilson as one of the finest ever to have lived. Their music will outlive most of the bands in the top 100 and will likely remain a cult favourite years into the future.

198 Staind Staind Staind was a heavy metal band formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995. ...read more.

Aaron Lewis has a beautiful voice and is one heck of a song writer. This band and it's lead singer should be in the top best 100 rock bands of all time for sure!

Alright this band has a couple good songs; 'Its Been Awhile' & 'Tangled Up In U' I support Aaron Lewis note as a country star.

So much meaning in their music compared to most. And this is the Modern Rock list not the 1990's and back list.

Just plain good rock

200 My Darkest Days My Darkest Days My Darkest Days is a Canadian rock band based in Peterborough, Ontario consisting of lead singer Matt Walst, bassist Brendan McMillan, drummer Doug Oliver, and keyboardist Reid Henry.

I don't know why this band it's in a low position. They are so perfect! Love their songs, specially the lyrics

They sing dirty songs, with no real meaning behind the lyrics, but their music and voice is good. - smokelessdragon
