4 Albatross Albatross

Should be higher for these reasons as follows.

+ Lyrically diverse, unlike all those bands having the trend for love songs and love songs only sounding lyrically dumb albatross's lyrics are out the box, rad, different, and they use sarcasm in a good way, to which we can relate our daily lifestyle to. the base notes.

+ The uses of guitar effects and techniques man, including the wah wah man. though sunny manandhar is not "the best guitarist of the country", he does have plenty of techniques and tricks in his bag which does not fail to impress.

+ The only band which makes you love your language more by their lyrics... don't get me wrong here. Its true, feel it :D

+ The only band which is equally appreciated both in underground and mainstream scene in Nepal which is damn hard thing to achieve if your getting what I mean here. (Y)

+ Having the most diverse songs covering metal, slow rock, rock ballads, funk, hard rock, progressive rock and ...more

Albatross has got the best and most melodious vocalist and music. It surely deserves the top band position

From their melodious song like timi bhane to their metal songs, Albatross is definitely one of the greatest band we have in Nepal - alish8gerrard

These guys are amazing!

12 Robin N Looza / Robin N New Revolution Robin N Looza / Robin N New Revolution

Ultimate vocals and music. This band can compete many international bands and has potential to win people hearts around world. Just requires quality recording studio and video for each song. Keep it Up Robin Dai

Robin N Looza need to reunite!

Leading rock band with unique nepali voice, best attitude in live performance, mind blowing lyrics and superv music. Without this band in concerts/ live performances, fans of rock music feel lack of good intertainer, lack of attitude needed for any musical artist in live performance, lack of sth which a live music performer suppose to have... Therefore Robin N The New Revolution has been a legendry figure in Nepali Rock n Roll musical history.

Badass band...m/

14 Astha Astha

Astha You are Really Great singer in Nepali rock band because you are the Layla but you are doing really hard work in band. I love it your voice and songs composed also.

Get sucess in every moment

I honestly consider astha as one of the worst artist in Nepali music with no pure music no good vocal. They are just making bad love song and airing on T.V. because they might have money n good contacts

Mujhe gane k liye chance chahiye nepali song only
