BEST BAND OF THE 2000's there is no way around it. Trenches is just plain EPIC! The fact that 30 seconds to Mars is ahead of them makes me want to throw up. Just listen to War of Angels and Onyx and be amazed

102 Pyramaze

Pyramaze released three albums, all in the 2000s: Melancholy Beast, Legend of the Bone Carver, and Immortal. Their fast-paced, melodic rock features impossible guitar rifs, ethereal keyboards, sick layered vocals, epic themes. The albums are tight, well-mixed and produced works of art. The first two feature a glam power metal sound while the third has a grittier feel. It's the kind of music you have to really listen to a few times before you hear everything due to how complex the song structures, stories, and layers of each song are. The more you listen, the better it gets. Nothing disappoints about this music. It's not your standard radio fare but why not? What has the world got against the best band to come out of the 00s? I'll put Pyramaze toe-to-toe, song-to-song, album-to-album, musician-to-musician against ANY band on this list and Pyramaze will win in any rational debate between open-minded people who are willing to allow any form of rock to compete in such a comparison.

106 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.

Exceptional vocals, great tone. Meaningful, thoughtful lyrics.

Very surprised its this far down, pretty damn good

109 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,

113 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.

116 The Twilight Sad
117 New Found Glory
118 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!
