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 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!

146 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

147 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.

148 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.

What the hell five finger death punch should at least top 20. With kickin guitar solos and awesome drums. Not to mention awesome vocals.

168 excuse me what are you smoking this is top 20 at least

The only recently formed awesome rock/metal band

Should be in Top 10!

149 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 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

154 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

First album was amazing! Just found it again on iTunes after all these yrs! Listened to it over and over back in the day!

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

155 Kasabian Kasabian Kasabian are an English rock band formed in Leicester in 1997. The band's original members consisted of vocalist Tom Meighan, guitarist and vocalist Sergio Pizzorno, guitarist Chris Karloff, and bassist Chris Edwards.

They have to be so so much higher

The best

What, shows how bad people's opinion on music is these days, muse are good, not 4th 😂😂😂 Kasabian should be higher, not 4th but at least top 20

156 Placebo Placebo Placebo are an English alternative rock band, formed in London in 1994 by singer-guitarist Brian Molko and guitarist-bassist Stefan Olsdal.

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

157 Wilco

THIS IS SAD! Bring em higher please. My favorites (Arcade Fire and Radiohead) were kind of tempting to vote for, but I can't let this one drift behind.

Grossly underrated band. Great songs and great musicianship. They should be around the music scene a long time.

I love this band.

158 Everclear
159 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

An incredibly versatile band capable of creating rock that is both complex and accessible. They have their own signature sound and style that has garnered them a true cult following that is growing with the continuing success of Steven Wilson's excellent solo career.

Fantastic progressive, hard, crunchy, amazing band. Steven Wilson is an amazing songwriter, who has surrounded himself with amazing musicians to take his creations to the limit. Oh, he also plays a mean guitar.

Versatile, talented, beautiful, epic! This is the band I was looking for all my life. They also revived prog rock into a relevant state again they're that good.
