Hit after hit! Unique, totally original sound, great lyrics, good musicians especially Matt Chamberlain on drums. This band was iconic during the 90s and still make great music. Every album except maybe 1 has been awesome. This band is number 1

Perhaps, listening to the Album Siamese dream will be the best way to rank this band. In the the mid 90's this band did rock. Even now the sound is pretty unique.

One of the most influential rock bands out there.

102 OneRepublic OneRepublic OneRepublic is an American pop rock band. Formed in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2002 by lead singer Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on Myspace as an unsigned act.

Apologize took the world by storm, but they also have All We Are, Mercy, and Come Home. In one album. That's impressive. And now they've expanded their horizons with songs like Secrets, Good Life, Feel Again, If I Lose Myself, and All The Right Moves.

Wow, this low. This is a top ten band in my opinion, should at least be in the top 50 along with many other bands on this list that deserve better spots

Tik tok Tik tok, can I just marry dem and their music already!

More over all hits than most bands mentioned,

108 Papa Roach Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

I can't believe that they are only at number 46. They might be a bit unknown but their music is very good. They have many good songs like Scars, Last Resort, Forever, Burn, Lifeline...
I believe that they are much better than the most of the groups in this list!

They changed the majority of the music indusrty, with different styles of music from rap all the way too metal, personally my favorite

Loved them ever since the hit "Scars" and purchased their albums every since. Great Band, Great Vocals, Great look! Favorite rock band of ALL time!

Come on! Papa Roach is way much better than this!
