141 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock/metal band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

How are they so low? I mean come on people! They're one of the most influential bands of all time.

Trent Reznor = Genius

Most of the time only one person does the music, writes and records it. ONE. PERSON. Why is NIN low?

142 A Perfect Circle

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.

143 AFI

AFI is one of the best bands ever.. Davey Havok is a pure soul and so are Jade,Hunter and Adam.. They Rock. Don't believe me? CHeck out Miss Murder,Girl's Not Grey or Silver and Cold!

One of the best rock bands ever, great emotion!

146 Phoenix

I really like them and their album Bankrupt is fantastic! Oblique city and bourgeois and Girlfriend are the best songs!

147 Interpol

Classic modern rock!

148 Thunder

Great sound. Backstreet Symphony and Laughing on Judgement day are great albums. Some heavy songs, some slow melodies. Very strong lead singer voice.

149 Versailles

Japanese virtuosos costumed as renaissance girls.

150 The Smashing Pumpkins The Smashing Pumpkins The Smashing Pumpkins is an American alternative rock band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1988. Formed by frontman Billy Corgan and James Iha, the band included D'arcy Wretzky and Jimmy Chamberlin in its original incarnation. They are also considered to be one of the most influential alternative ...read more.

Why aren't they on this list? Absolute killer music that never gets old. Every album is different and do not contain "filler" tracks. I could listen to Siamese Dream all the way through everyday. Billy Corgan has one of the best voices around and is an absolute musical genius. It seems like the Pumpkins never get the respect they truly deserve; a band for the ages.

Listen to I am one, first song of one of their first albums... Still kicks ass... As do most of their songs... Where the hell are THE PIXIES!?

Outstanding musicians, as are many of the others on this list. Many deserve top spot. It's okay to have more than one favourite.

I love this band they played a big roll in my childhood as I grew up listening to the they are amazing

The violin is creative, brilliant, and adds an element to this genre that is not present in many of the bands ranked above

Very underrated and underpublicized band. Instrumentals are unique and vocals are memprable. A band that will never disappoint

A very unique and multi talented band. They are in my opinion undrr publicized and under appteciated. A band that has a memorable sound that will never disappoint.

158 Black Stone Cherry

The best band ever! I am yet to hear a black stone cherry song that isn't awesome!

Even though it seems impossible, I think that every single album gets better and better!

Chris Robertsons faultless vocals With Ben wells and Jon lawhons amazing guitar skills topped of with John Fred Youngs mind blowing drumming. No beating it

This band is so under appreciated. They are by far one of the five best bands on this list. Their live performances are great.

Black stone cherry can out rock most of these bands!

160 Royal Blood Royal Blood Royal Blood are an English rock duo formed in Brighton, East Sussex, in 2013. The band's sound is reminiscent of and rooted in modern blues rock, hard rock, garage rock and psychedelic rock.

These guys are the real deal. Hard rockers with Zep- like riffs

Awesome bass and drums

Kerr's got a great voice

Probably one of the more modern rock bands

Link in park are nowhere near these boys

Some of those bands aren't even rock bands!

Go royal blood!
