Best Rock Bands of the 2000s

The Contenders: Page 8

141 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.

142 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!

143 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.
144 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

145 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.

146 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!

150 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name is derived from a fictional martial arts maneuver in the 2003 film Kill Bill.

151 Staind Staind Staind was a heavy metal band formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995. ...read more.

Amazing band Aaron's voice is simply amazing and he has written some of the best lyrics I have ever heard, every album is different but still amazing very underrated in my opinion...

Times have changed now. Hope they come out of hiatus to have a Greatest Hits album, at least. They are one amazing band, who I adore.

Staind's newer music may be softer and repetitive, but their older and newest album should be up in the ranks of the top 20 at least.

THIS BAND SHOULD BE TOP 10 WHAT IN THE WORLD

153 Buck-Tick

156 Thrice Thrice Thrice is an American rock band from Irvine, California, formed in 1998. The group was founded by guitarist/vocalist Dustin Kensrue and guitarist Teppei Teranishi while they were in high school.

A band that pumps me up without cursing me out. They even have a large number of songs to cool me down afterwards. I need pounding yet deeply poetic, and Thrice delivers!

I love the music- & it's even more meaningful when you really listen to the lyrics.

The worst part is Thursday isn't even here

Where the heck is this awesome band called, PLACEBO...
They are one of the biggest acts in europe and they rule.. Listen to Meds and they roc

159 Bloc Party

Number 192? Really!? Has anyone listened to their music? Grossly underrated! Four cd's and a slew of singles make this band premier in my book. Just listen to Silent Alarm and Intimacy, then A Weekend in the City and lastly, Four. You will not be disappointed. Prepare yourself for a mental and aural holiday!

A couple of great albums. I had them on in my car all the time back in the 00s. They were really popular.

Come on way way higher... Great riffs

160 Brand New

One of the best bands period, The albums still hold up today unlike many on this list

You need to listen to them to understand why they deserve so much better, mate

Awesome band. The Devil and God is the best album of the 2000s!
