Top 10 Best Modern Rock Bands
The Contenders: Page 5
The first time I heard This is the time (Ballast), I was blown away. Anybody who follows active rock (like the kind you hear on Sirius XM Octane and other modern hard rock stations) know that Nothing More is pretty at the top of that genre right now, their self-titled album pumped out hit after hit (Mr MTV, Christ Copyright, Jenny, and several others). I've seen them live twice, and they're great on CD, but they are phenomenal live.
I absolutely love this band jenny, Mathew effect, and mr mtv are my favorites
TSO is great... Excellent "bottom"!
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.
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!
How can this group be ranked 554 instead of 55 or something like this
They Should be at least in the top 50...please let's put them in the topV 6 Comments
THEY'RE FIRST ALBUM WAS OKAY, THEY'RE SECOND RECORD HAD ALL THEIR SINGLES ON THE RADIO AND WERE TOP TEN ON THE U. S ACTIVE ROCK CHART. THEIR FIRST SINGLE "SICK" WAS #1, THEIR SECOND SINGLE "THE COLLAPSE" WAS #3, THEIR THIRD SINGLE "CRITICIZE" WAS #1 AS WELL, THEY'RE LAST SINGLE "ALIVE" MADE IT TO #6. THEY'VE IMPROVED a lot IN THE SECOND ALBUM. This band will indeed make an impact on rock with their upcoming third album, which is expected to be released around september and october time and will contain up to 12-13 songs. GO ALL THE WAY!
I've seen Adelitas Way three times. These guys give 100% at every performance. First album was great. Second album is amazing. Going to see them again at Uproar 2012. They will be a headliner in the near future because they are just that good.
Don't know who these guys are? Go listen to Home School Valedictorian before voting. Mind blowing stuff.
Best of the modern rock bands.V 1 Comment
What! I didn't even see Marilyn in this list, he is the best artist/work of art ever. Also a very interesting and intelligent person. You should be in 1st I mean come on people his music is a pure beauty.
Manson is one of the most influential musicians in history and I think its insulting that he is number 96. If every other artist in this list was running against manson during the manson hit years they all would have lost.
In my opinion, they have great lyrics and they are underrated in their genre, because people think they look "weird".
THIS BAND IS HORRIBLE! - cwoodkiterV 6 Comments
I recently started hearing some of their music on my Pandora, and honestly, it's beautiful. I was shocked on how much I liked them when I found them. If anyone here is looking for a good band, I suggest search this!
DCFC is the best indie band out there and deserves to be in top 5. Excellent lyrics, music, melody and vocals are trademarks of this band. This band can belt out piano driven songs that creep slowly up and rise to a crescendo towards the end ( I will posses your heart, Soul meets the body )
Personally I don't think they should be too high up because there old guitarist and drummer weren't too talented at what they do but since they left the new members seem to have a lot of potential so maybe we will get some more complicated playing put of them
I love panic with all my heart but personally I don't understand why they're on this list, they're not a rock and roll band and they haven't been in 10 years
I don't think their genre is necessarily rock, but they definitely deserve a higher ranking on every list they are on recently. The old hits and the new album are too good to be this low.
This deserves to be at least top 50.V 18 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
How are Wolfmother so far down? They are amazing!
Really really really awesome!
There are the best in the world
A ridiculously underrated band.V 2 Comments
Black Sabbath invented Heavy Metal.
What is wrong with you people... Black Sabbath... Modern? They're low on this list, because they invented heavy metal. So they aren't a modern rock band.
"Paranoid Iron Man" is the best!
Bruh, they broke up like 37 years ago
Still a great band though
Brand new rock group consisting of Three Days Grace's old vocalist, Staind's guitarist, and Finger Eleven's drummer. Can't wait to see what the future holds for this band!
There one album is quite impressiveV 1 Comment
Should be much higher on the charts
While Tool brought the thought-evoking metal power, A Perfect Circle balanced the MJK equation with softer, more emotionally charged songs. Both Tool and APC have extremely skilled artists, that much is evident by even a cursory listen. I thought this would be higher on the list.
APC is one of the sole beautiful rock bands out there. Their songs have a feminine touch to them that make them unique and chilling.
They speak the truth in all of their songs. They're just really real, and I love that.V 1 Comment
This list is made by teenage girls who think they are edgy listening to linkin park because they haven't moved past the eminem stage just yet
Hitting almost all corners of the genre, the band has had enough different members to merit their own "Queens of the Stone Age contributors" page on Wikipedia. QotSA has music that makes you want to dance, laugh, cry, have sex, punch a wall, and everything in between.
It's hard to understand or derive why Queens of the Stone Age are so underrated. They are a band that encompasses indie, alternative, and hard rock, and make songs that are a rarity these days - even among other rock bands. Uniquely awesome and they deserve to be commended.
Very underrated band, but one of the best ones out there. Josh Homme is a mastermind! Qotsa has a very special essence, definilety give them a try, you are going to love them. Albums like songs for the deaf, rated r, lullabies to paralyze and the new album like clockwork are amazing. One of the best bands ever!
See them live, and u would put them at one. Half of the bands in the top ten aren’t even modern. And it’s really sad he died, but Linkin Park is very annoying to be honest. Anyway, qotsa might be one of the best bands ever. Listen to songs for deaf, rated R, like clockwork, and villains ALL the way through. Just do that.V 20 Comments
U2 is the best modern band of all time. They're also probably the most known which weird how low it is on this list. Maybe it's because of the itunes thing? I don't know. Maybe it's because people don't consider it a modern band. In my opinion it is both a classic rock and a modern rock band. They are one of the few bands who have been consistently good for their career. They are still making good music. For example their most well known song, Beautiful Day, came out in 2000. If that's not modern then I don't know what is.
Six out of the top 10 bands on this list are not good and the rest aren't as good as U2.
I'm now very annoyed because most of my favourite band on this list haven't made the top 50 ah bye bye and U2 should NOT be at 187
Beast band not much better than u2 and some pizza
Their music is goodV 1 Comment
The longest lasting rock band out there, and still kicking ass! They are one of the BIGGEST influences on hard rock and heavy metal, bringing together the influences of In your face rock, the blues, and even classical music. The very definition of rock never seemed to be lost on them even until now. Up there With Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath, this pinnacle hard rock band stands out like no other.
Purple live, nothing quite like it. Awesome
They don't make new music so their not modern
Great band though
Although their music can be very exclipt, I reallly enjoy their songs! they bring the 80's back!
