173th is way to low for this pioneers from Sweden. 20 years on tour and still going strong, without forgetting to invent themselves every new record. From good old grunt and scream in the early days to pinkfloyd yes on the latest records. One of the best live shows I've ever seen, and they don't need lights, fireworks, striptease, facepaint or other crap that distracts the essential part; playing music.

182 Beartooth Beartooth Beartooth is an American metalcore band formed by Caleb Shomo in Columbus, Ohio in 2012. They are signed to Red Bull Records since 2013 along with Shomo's electronic act Class.

190 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

191 Jet

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

192 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 ;-)

193 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

194 Feeder

Probably one of the most underrated bands ever, songs like Just a Day and Generation Freakshow are among some of the best out there!

Also very great band that deserves to be here... Great quality and original kind of rock band much recommended!

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 Go Radio

This is an awesome band! Their music is truly original and inspiring. Jason, although he left Mayday Parade, has really made a way for himself and is out there making great new music. Check them out! You won't be disappointed. Start with New Moon and Any Other Heart. You'll be hooked from there.

197 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.
