Formed in 2003, the group began their first performances while a majority of the members were attending their senior year of high school, and soon began playing shows around Lancaster, before being signed to CI Records. Afterwards, more.

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

126 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

127 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.

Some of the bands ahead of deftones... Just no... Especially the top 10,just terrible.

131 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.

132 Falling in Reverse Falling in Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

I can't believe that falling in reverse is so poorly ranked. Ronnie radke is one of the best song writers of our generation. Rock isn't what it used to be, but these guys are the closest thing. They have only just begun but they are already one of the best bands of our generation. Way better than Linkin Park!

These guys need to be ranked higher! They are definitely at least top ten material!

One of the best bands I've ever listened too and I'm glad I did listen too them. THEY ARE AWESOME

Love this band, they need to make another album

Since 1998, the band's constant members have been lead vocalist Joel Madden, lead guitarist and vocalist Benji Madden, bassist Paul Thomas, rhythm guitarist and keyboardist Billy Martin and drummer Dean Butterworth, more.

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

The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on the Take more.

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

Should have a lower rank than this
