Best Noise Rock Bands
A list of all the best noise rock/pop bands of all time.
The Top Ten
1 Sonic Youth
Sonic Youth was an American rock band from New York City, formed in 1981. Founding members Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon and Lee Ranaldo remained together for the entire history of the band, while Steve Shelley followed a series of short-term drummers in 1985, and rounded out the core line-up.
Diverse and powerful, Sonic Youth can dip from sweeping scale to oddball craziness in a heartbeat. I can't imagine any other noise group making a song as breathtaking as "Teen Age Riot" or "Tunic"
2 The Velvet Underground
The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City.
3 Lightning Bolt
These Guys Are the Best Anywhere!
Best noise rock in my opinion
4 The Jesus & Mary Chain
5 Arab On Radar
Every person in the band contributes to the style completely and has put on some of the best and most energetic shows that people have ever seen, the band has just enough energy and dissonance to make the perfect noise rock band, Most of their songs only YouTube aren't that great, buy the CD
6 Teenage Jesus & The Jerks
7 The Chinese Stars
8 Half Japanese
9 Melt Banana
10 Butthole Surfers
Butthole Surfers is an American rock band formed by Gibby Haynes and Paul Leary in San Antonio, Texas in 1981.
