103 The Darkness

I'm quite surprised the Darkness aren't in the top 25. In reality they are a true rock band. Their sound, dynamic and live performance proves it. Mixing the sounds of Queen, AC/DC and other classic bands, they have brought a great revival in rock music.

104 The Used

Should be top 10 band easy. Every song of every album is a good listen. They have no bad songs.

Should at least be considered. After all, look at some of the bands on this list.

How can you not like the used? Every song is so meaningful.

Amazing band, absolutely brilliant lyrics along with great instrumental sides to the songs as well

109 Dragonforce Dragonforce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

Just listen to "Through the fire and the flames" its about one of the hardest songs to play.

Through the fire and the flames was bad ass but that's all they have so that's how they where placed

They are fast and good melodies. You can also hear what they sing. Not bad at all.

110 Vampire Weekend

Very Creative and Innovative with their sounds and lyrics! They are very cultured and intellectual as the Ivy School boys they were. Think Mozart meets Lady Smith Black Mambaza meets simon and Garfunkel! They have a very polished preppy look to them and know how to put a damn good show LIVE.

Great band, can't ever be in a bad mood when listening to vampire weekend

The greatest indie rock band and the most unique band on the plant

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.

108? Idiots

This band is way cooler than some of the above, should be higher on the list.

116 Steel Panther Steel Panther Steel Panther is an American comedy glam metal band from Los Angeles, California, mostly known for their profane and humorous lyrics, as well as their exaggerated on-stage personae that parody the stereotypical 1980s "glam metal" lifestyle.

Hilarious, kickass band with amazing musicianship. Their live shows are third to none.

117 The Twilight Sad
118 The Switches
119 311 311 311 is an American rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. The band was formed in 1988 by vocalist and guitarist Nick Hexum, lead guitarist Jim Watson, bassist Aaron "P-Nut" Wills.

Seriously, 98th place? Way better than all those lame gorge bands like blink 182, offspring, etc

Even though their best work was in the 90s, From Chaos and Evolver are so much better that all these bands' song put together combined. - Lemonjelo

Their 2014 cd titled "stereolithic", is their 6th straight album hit top 10 on the billboard rock album chart.

120 Escape the Fate

Older stuff is definitely better when Ronnie was still in the band. Their current stuff is still awesome, just not as awesome. I am surprised that they are not higher than this...

With the last album they really are one of the best bands of the 2000's.
They are good, innovative, they are... Awesome.

Should be higher than 102... They are just sooo good, but they are more metal than "rock"
