128 Jet

No bad songs, best ROCK band of the 2000's! Seventeen, She's a Genius,
Cold Hard Bitch, K.I.A. , Rip It Up, Rollover DJ, Are you gonna be
my Girl? , Put your money where your mouth is, just to name a few.

This band is amazing. They should be in the the top 20 at least

These guys don't know what is a bad song. If Coldplay is a top 30 as they don't come up with radiohead&co (12), Jet deserves a top 40 as they don't come up with Foo Fighters&co. They are definitely the 2000's heart

Vote for the best drum and bass band!

132 Dir en grey Dir en grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.

When my best friend first showed me Dir En Grey I fell in love with them instantly! They are just awesome! Their music quality changes in almost every Album and it keeps it very unique and fresh. I absolutely love Kyo's vocals and the guitars and bass in all of their songs just sound awesome. Its enough to make you want to head bang like crazy one moment. And sit and relax and let your mind wander the next. One of my favorite bands! - Alexandros94

Made six albums and one EP during the 2000's, these guys worked so hard on their music, they deserve a reward... How about getting in the TOP TEN!?

These guys are just pure.. Awesome. They deserve way higher than only being at 90. They at least deserve higher than L'arc~en~ciel

133 Live Live Live is an American rock band from York, Pennsylvania, composed of Chad Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer, Chad Gracey, and Chris Shinn. Live's original lead singer Ed Kowalczyk left the band in November 2009.

Right up there with Pearl Jam! I Alone and The Distance is just fantastic.

134 Mindless Self Indulgence

Nothing can quite explain MSI. Not sure what they're doing on a rock list, but hey, I'm going to say something in their favour since they've made it here. Bizarre, Lovable, catchy and kickass vocals and just hnngh music in general. Check them out if you haven't!

135 B'z B'z B'z is a Japanese rock duo, consisting of guitarist, composer and producer Takahiro "Tak" Matsumoto and vocalist and lyricist Koshi Inaba, known for their energetic hard-rock tracks and pop ballads.
136 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

Funny how all the bands in the top ten are the most commercialized?... Just because of this, people instantly think they're God's gift to music.

Don't get me wrong, they're decent, but not the best rock has to offer unfortunately.

Tasty licks, groovy rhythm section. Songs create an atmosphere. At least top 5 of the 2000's, with Protest the Hero, Circa Survive, and The Mars Volta.

People clearly haven't listened to any of there music that have voted! They are simply awesome, listen to their music and you will agree

I'm gonna ride this plane, out of your life again

137 Chevelle Chevelle Chevelle is an American rock band that formed in 1995 in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Illinois. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler, Sam Loeffler and Joe Loeffler.

CheVelle, one of, if not THE most underrated Alt Metal bands of all time. Pete Loeffler's lyrics, though at times abstract, are always deep and seem to be well thought out. No rhyming with these guys. Just hard hitting melodic vocals driven by some of the heaviest guitar tones created from a three piece band.

This band is the definition of rock. Lifehouse? 3 doors down? Nickelback? Those bands are not even rock. Chevelle puts a new album out every two years and they just get better every time. Listen to Pinata on the new album. Then the rest of the album you will see what I'm saying.

I'm sorry just because your throwing a fit about your band does NOT mean you have the right to talk trash about bands such as three doors down and nickle back now shut up get over it!

This band should easily be in the top ten! Three doors down and nickelback suck!

138 Dream Theater Dream Theater Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", but had to change its name to Dream Theater later. ...read more.

In the 2000's these creators of progressive metal reached a worldwide audience with classics like Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, Train of Thoughts, and Octavarium - so in my opinion they deserve a spot in the top twenty.

For the people who don't know them... Get a life!

They make metal work for me haha

I don't even know who these people are. - littledemand

139 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. ...read more.

Why is BVB at number 125? They deserve to at least be in the top 100 mean they are a great band and I know that some people don't like them cause they wear make up but I think that people who judge a band on how they look need to wake up and smell the god damn roses. Cause they are an amazing band that a lot of people can relate to.

They're new album definitely isn't the greatest. But Set the World on Fire is one of the best rock albums of all time. There isn't a bad song on it.

Black Veil Brides! They should be at least under the top 10!

BvB needs to be number 1! BVB for life!

140 OutKast OutKast

OutKast is the Run-D.M.C. of the 2000s. Since hip-hop is a genre of music that is not explored much, much like rock before the 1990s, OutKast is exactly what we needed. Listen to "Stankonia" and "Speakerbox/The Love Below". They're their best work.
