Top 10 Best Modern Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 4
Way better than all those other bands up there, their debut album went diamond... Not many of the other bands have done that on this list..
So many amazing songs have even written by this band. It's criminal not to see the in the top ten.
Pearl Jam is great and all, but you guys need to pay attention to the fact that this list is about MODERN bands.

Best band ever! Deserves way better than 136!
Hey, they deserve more. Listen to his song miserable at best and you'll change your mind :D
No they need to be in a much better spot in the lis more like 10V 1 Comment
Unbelievable that they are ranked so low. The black keys have extreme talent for being only two members. Turn on the radio and you will no doubt hear one of their songs. They crush Lincoln park anyday. Very underrated!
How are these guys so low! Their living legends! Love the guitar along with the drums. These guys put so much skill and effort into all of their albums, unlike other bands who only have one or two good songs in one album. So underrated!
They have the potential to become the greatest band right now even better than Linkin Park.
So wrong they should be a lot higher then this in the ranking at least top tenV 16 Comments
It is such un underrated band... Its a great band. Slash and Duff (both ex-GN'R) become this band fantastic. Listen to "Slither" and "Fall To Pieces" ;) - TimRise
The solo from Dirty little thing just blows my mind, one of the best songs of the 2000's.
This band has slash in it. I don't think I need to say more.
They actually should be #1, they are the only band of the last 15 years with attitude. by the way Linkin Park are terrible. - Monners55
Every Oasis song is just AMAZING! SERIOUSLY you can't not listen to all their playlist. Good vibe and pretty awesome instrumentals!
Noel and Liam Gallagher, it doesn't get any better great song writer and singers
Like pop rock? Love Oasis!V 10 Comments
The Offspring ROCKS! What more can I say? Best band ever!
Dexter's voice is amazing! They really should be in the top ten.
One of the best rock bands ever. Should be inside the top ten, also can't wait until they release their new album.
They deserve a much better place, They're one of the current best-known rock band. Their songs are all awesome, although they don't change their style as much as other bands in their albums, They make very catchy songs.
If you still haven't heard any song, try "You're gonna go far, kid"
They should be in the top FIVEV 3 Comments
Iron Maiden was top notch back in the day and I still love the power of the music today.
Maiden Is the Best Band Out There they Could buy almost every band on this list... Period... Not one band even comes close to what maiden has achieved when all these bands listed can sell out stadiums 35 years later I'll believe it
Still not tired of their unique sound after all these years. Maiden Rocks.
Not exactly modern but hey, great band!V 4 Comments
Not even compared to the bands listed here... the band affected all of the others listed musically, guitarist officially one of the best of all times, vocalist too... their lyrics are meaningful beyond the boundaries of music, so is their lifestyle, which is rare these days (some of them)...
I can think of only a few other bands that match the quality and sheer power of Rage. Even when they aren't driving the beat into your chest with instruments, the intensity of their voices (think The Ghost of Tom Jones) alone gets your blood racing. If you need some rock & roll to get your adrenaline up, this is your band.
These people clearly do not know what good rock musics is. Rage is the BEST!
First self titled album, just can't beat it!V 5 Comments
I love EVERY Puddle of Mudd song I've heard so far. Keep making music guys!
Pretty good band with potential!
Greatest underrated Rock Band on earth. YES, they know how to master great ROCk music. Yes, they are truly good musicians. They are as good (maybe even better) than Nirvana. Grunge never sounded SO GOOD. Love ALL your 6 CDs. Keep it up guys!
Whoever doesn't love this band is psycho. Unlike us, we are schizophrenic psychos.V 3 Comments
So sad that this is only at number 71. DT has more talent than all ten of those top ten bands combined. I don't want to be hating on other people's bands or anything, they're alright, but none of them come even close the lyrical beauty of Learning To Live and The Spirit Carries On, The Master Musicianship of The Dance of Eternity and Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, the surreal epics that are Octavarium and A Change of Seasons... I could go on forever. The musicians in the band are the best music has to offer and LaBrie's brilliant and well-matching vocals completes the deal. Anyone who doesn't vote this on number 1 has either not heard of them or does not have any taste in music whatsoever.
Best band of all time there sound is unique and continues to innovate with more and more albums. These walls, sacrificed sons, and panic attack are examples of songs that continue to echo throughout the thoughts and inspiration of (muse and the white stripes) rock bands that just do what Dream Theater started and continues to do. So 47 is a fit number for a band with the ability to create something new like some bands on this list not dream theater!
Laugh out loud. This list tells me that no one even knows what real music is. "laugh out loud" is all I have to say. This list is a joke. If this was a list where the people who have heard and listened to all types of rock, progressive would be #1. Dream theater would be number 1 if people werent such tools.
The fact that bands like 3 Doors Down, Alice in Chains, Incubus, Tool, Pearl Jam, and AC/DC and are not in the top 25 (of the bands listed) tells me that too many adolescents are voting. The fact that Dream Theatre doesn't make the top 10 tells me that the people who are voting haven't heard enough "rock" music to have any informed opinion. In the 72 bands that preceded Dream Theatre, you could not create a band to match their talent, let alone their consistency at making great songs. Very sad evidence of a declining music intelligence and an ear for great rock music.V 14 Comments
I can understand why Sick Puppies as high as I would like them to be, after all, they don't make albums very often. But that doesn't change the fact that they have probably the most meaningful songs there are, but they are still fierce. Plus, its a three man band, yet they sound twice as good as half of the other bands above them. I mean Linkin Park, really? They are more like half rock and techno now.
Well for one, this band is awesome! Two, this band may not have many albums but listen to the ones they have you will find some good songs, three, listen to "you're going down" and "change" most inspiring songs I've heard yet, four and last, if you can't like this band and or at least like one of those two songs then you don't like meaningful music. Period
P.S. The song "change" made me think maybe there's more to life than being stuck in the same rut every single day.
This band is a very diverse band, though it seems mos people on this list don't know what that means (FOB is "diverse" lol) Songs like "Connect" show their softer side, but songs like "Cancer" show their heavy side, and political side as well. Some of their songs are very unique, like "Under A Very Black Sky." Shim is a great frontman, (too bad he was kicked out) Emma is one of the best modern bassists out their and is hot as hell, and Mark is... well he's silent at most times, but is a badass when he shows his personality. SP for the win!
I honestly love there songs I'm going through something and this bad has my attention and helps calm me down.V 1 Comment
Such an underrated band. Definitely deserve top ten. RIP Layne and Mike S. , so happy with the last two albums. - Laughitupfuzzball
Alive In Chains is the best band EVER! I love all of their songs!
Rooster, man in the box, angry chair, and these bones best songs ever
Heavy music. Down in a hole is so tragic but also so damn beautiful.V 3 Comments
Best modern rock band 93rd that's an outrage!
Here are some of the songs they have written:
Over my head
Never say never
How to save a life
You found me
Over my head
Look after you
Please listen to 1 of these songs and then you will probably vote for this one.
I love all of the frays music and I bet none of you have ever even listened to it... KINGS OF LEON WAS OVER THEM SERIOUSLY. Listen to these songs and your mind will change
How to save a life
You found me
Look after you
Fray on 74 in mere shame on this list. If not top 10, than they at least deserve to be in top 20. Listen to how to save a life, never say never or love don't die n you'll what I mean
The Fray's songs are not that kind of songs you forget with time. Their songs are simply striking.V 3 Comments
Really a Southern Rock style band. They have been around for years and putting out awesome music. One of those bands with their own genre. Top ten in Southern Rock. If you like Little Feat to Allman Bros. Style they are a must.
DBT are an amazing band with three distinct guitarists and vocalists. Their music swings between Southern rock and alt country rock. They are good songwriters too. While they may not be in top ten rock band list, one of their mates -Jason Isabel is going up several notches in charts
Awesome southern gritty southern rock
They shouldn't be on this list. Do people not know what modern means?V 4 Comments
The measure of a good song is a song that sounds good on the first listen. The measure of a great song is a song that sounds good on the first listen and then gets better every time you listen to it again. I am familiar with the music of most of the bands on this list, and I quite enjoy much of their music as well, but lyrically Switchfoot is a cut above most others. Even musically, where many modern bands fail to live up to their lofty predecessors, Switchfoot is creative both in instrumentation and production techniques. Switchfoot manages to couple meaningful lyrics with music that will stay with you. Switchfoot doesn't make good music; they make great music. Give 'em a listen sometime
Damn they should be in the top ten
In my opinion Switchfoot is the best band of all time. Their Jon Foreman's lyrics never fail to be meaningful at any given time. They have never released an album that is anything short of awesome. They definitely should be in the top ten.
They're music speaks for itself.
STARSET is my absolute favorite band ever! They have a unique and extraordinary style! I've listened to the album so many times and the music still sounds just as perfect as the first time I had heard their songs. Dunstin's voice is so beautiful and I have high hopes for what this band will do as they create more music!
Very good band, like the theme, style, and most importantly, the music. They haven't been around that long but their music is REALLY GOOD.
How can this group be ranked 554 instead of 55 or something like this
Put on an amazing show and new song from second album (Monster) is awesome!V 4 Comments
Critically and in reality one of the best modern acts...
Why are they not number one
Gorillaz are pop-techno, not even close to being a rock band
How can anyone take this list serious, if the most influential and innovative rock band of our time is not only nowhere in the top ten, but this low! Arcade Fire is the new Radiohead. No. 1 would be deserved.
This Band Here Is Basically The Foundation Of Classic Rock! I Definitely Deserves Way Better Than This!
This band is ' awesome! Why the hell are they not at the top?! I know they aren't exactly modern but come on.
Are you kidding me, they should definitely be more relevant today, they deserve to be in the top 10.
These guys ae mintV 5 Comments
