August Burns Red should be top 50. What in the heck people. They have some good songs that get you amped up like white washed, levler, and empire to name a few. - C_Brooks97

128 Stone Sour Stone Sour Stone Sour is an American rock band formed in Des Moines, Iowa in 1992, performing for five years, before disbanding in 1997. They reunited in 2000 and since 2006, the group has consisted of Corey Taylor, Josh Rand and Roy Mayorga.

Seriously Stone Sour at 52. Do any of you actually know what music is. Corey Taylor has one of the most hauntingly beautiful voices of the modern age. 90% of their songs are utterly uncomparable to any other band on this list because they are just amazingly emotional, and excellently put together.

They deserve way better than this. Corey Taylor is a amazing artist who is in a league of his own.

The lead singer is also of slipknot they have some awesome badass songs check out the track tired

Best SS songs: Get Inside, Inhale, Made of Scars, Digital, Say You'll Haunt Me, Absolute Zero, Gone Sovereign, Do Me a Favor, The Uncanny Valley

These are the real ROCK / METAL songs

129 Trapt Trapt Trapt is an American rock band that formed in Los Gatos, California in 1995, best known for their 2002 single "Headstrong".

Trapt deserves at least top ten go listen to headstrong and tell me that they don't honestly.

Only modern band who can mix soft spoken lyrics with heavy guitar riffs should be number 1!

I'll back trapt on this one. They should be top 30 bare minimum. - C_Brooks97

130 Deftones Deftones Deftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

Deftones has a defined sound that is solely their own. They are creative but you know a Deftones song when you hear it, and by far that is not a bad thing. The lyrics are thought provoking, the music is layered and definitely unique. Plus their cover of Simple Man was the best cover of that song I've ever heard.

Wow some of the bands that made the too 10 laugh out loud Deftones all day... A band that not only was creative like no other but also progressed brilliantly like I've never seen a band progress before! This band is so deep! Not on the top ten? Gotta love pop culture smh

Deftones is one of it's kind, not just some typical metal tradition sounds, its more unique from its creativity in making music.

Quality rock hybrid

Arguably the most consistent act and idea in the last 20 years

131 Anberlin Anberlin Anberlin was an American rock band formed in Winter Haven, Florida in 1998. Since the beginning of 2007, the band consisted of lead vocalist Stephen Christian, guitarists Joseph Milligan and Christian McAlhaney, bassist Deon Rexroat, and drummer Nathan Young.

Anberlin is truly perfection. Whoever decided Linkin Park is number 1 and these guys are in the 100s is a moron. Link in Park is more hip hop then rock especially now and were never that great to begin with. The top place should really be between these guys and rise against. They are really good at writing and their instrumentals are always killer. Feel Good Drag and Fin for the win!

Anberlin deserves to be in the top 10. They have a diverse sound while still remaining true to themselves and distinct.

Anberlin should be in the top 30 at least

Cities is the epitome of perfection. - Evant

The only bad that I know of right now that is making good music and making it on the charts.

There music is great, I don't really know why they are so far down, but they have good music don't underestimate them because they are young and are still a young band but they have a mix of rock and pop and its really well balanced, I really love this band!

This is my favourite band of all time. They made me the person I am today. They made me realise what kind of person I really am and showed most of the bands I like now

4 guys from Australia got together, made a band and absolutely killed it, not a boy band but a rock band and an awesome one too

137 Neon Trees Neon Trees Neon Trees is an American rock band from Provo, Utah. Known for their energetic live performances, the band received nationwide exposure in late 2008 when they opened several North American tour dates for the band The Killers.
138 Hinder Hinder Hinder is an American rock band from Oklahoma that was formed in 2001 by drummer Cody Hanson, lead singer Austin Winkler and guitarist Joe "Blower" Garvey.

Hinder is like one of the best rock bands out there. There songs "Heaven Sent", "Without You", and "Lips of an Angel" are such good songs. But its "Up All Night" that really rock. That song gets you going.

Hinder has proved to me that they can make a variety of songs and do an amazing job! The best band; nickel back 2nd, theory of a deadman 3rd

The best best best band out there

Why is hinder not in the top ten, there the best rock band to still perform.

139 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Radioactive, It's Time, Round and Round, Demons, On Top of the World, Hear Me, Bleeding Out, Every Night, even Curse

They might be different from a lot of these bands but these guys know music.

Their entire night visions album was great! Every single song on it was well written an well produced, unlike the bands above whose albums had only one to two great to bearable songs. New, but doesn't deserve to be outside the top 100.

Imagine Dragons should be under the 100s! Their album Night Visions is purely amazing, and Warrior (their single) is AWESOME. I suggest listening to their songs before they're permanently ranked at 166

Amazing band.
Best tracks: Dream, Friction, Nothing Left to Say, Pantomime, I'll Make it Up to You, All for You, Unseen, Off to War, Monster
Worst tracks: Every Night, I Was Me, Whatever it Takes - UltimateCraig

Good Charlotte were the first rock band, that I began to listen. Before, I wasn't interested in rock. So I love them. Can't wait them to release new album.

Good charlotte are the best what? Why is this not in the top 20?

They are the best in their own style and can express their feeling with the best melodic lyrics. At least they are true legends for me. Wishin' Good charlotte be the best forever
