The Contenders: Page 10

181 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

182 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 ;-)

183 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

184 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.

This band rocks! Want to listen it all day. Love the sound!

186 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

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

192 Ghost B.C.

Love this band. I love the fact their music is old style but still contributing into the modern world of rock

Ghost is original and awesome

193 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!

194 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.

195 The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

What!? 154?! I think it should be higher, they don't have many songs but the ones they have are exceptional.

This one is a great band too

This one is a great band too!

Rja is one of the best.. I think he can sing better on stage..

196 Crosses
197 Within Temptation Within Temptation Within Temptation is a Dutch symphonic metal band founded in April 1996 by vocalist Sharon den Adel and guitarist Robert Westerholt.

Great Dutch band with another gorgeous and really talented singer and great musicians!

I love her voice. This band has everything, I don't understand why it's in a low position.

This band should be much higher on this list, Excellent music in a similar vein to Evanesence and Nightwish but much better. I would put this band in the top 10 easily.

198 The Gazette The Gazette The Gazette, originally known as Gazette, is a Japanese visual kei rock band from Kanagawa formed in early 2002. The band is currently signed to Sony Music Records.

The GazettE is the greatest rock band in the world, unfortunately Americans have no idea of who they are. Not one band on this list can match them.

They are the best and the world have to hear them
