Best South African Rock BandsParagon_Pariah37 From the beautiful country of South Africa, what are YOUR favourite bands?
The Top Ten
Birth of South African Metal - Paragon_Pariah37
I have some South African rock songs, I don't understand the lyrics, but the I enjoy the music. - zxm
Kickass Afrikaans Death Metal - Paragon_Pariah37
They are awesome live watching them now in Funner California. This is the third time I got to see them. They have perfected their live sound. Go see them you will not be bummed. They Rock
Seether are pretty good they r the first SA rock band I have ever liked followed by Prime Circle
The only band from this list I know, and they're pretty badass they're practically the next Nirvana to be honest and it's noticeable in their sound.
I am going to a Seether concert in Moncton NB - XxMontrealxXRBLX8 Comments
I bet everyone's gonna vote for Seether because they're mainstream. The only reason anone ywon't know most of these bands is because they don't care about the South African music scene
Certainly one of the best metalcore bands not only in South Africa but also in the world. Their cover of Disengage is brutal - Paragon_Pariah37
Poles apart, Ten Years, Broken Scar, I'm the Observer... Need I mention anything else?
Absolutely world class
STILL THE BEST ROCK BAND EVER TO COME OUT OF SA! THEY SHOULD BE AT number 1! NOT DOWN AT NO 10 :(. Seen them live a few time, & know Ross, Dirk & Marco from the last few months @ DGR days. Besides PC, the only other band on this list I've heard of is Seether. I gather the other bands just make one hell of noise & you can't understand a word they are singing, that's why they are up there! Keep rocking' guys & thanks for the great music, PC forever!
I Saw them at The 94.7 Show 27/09/2015 And they Rocked the Gasalinga! They made all a part of the vibe and even though the others were good... Prime had a bit more.
Open your ears people! Greatest Band!2 Comments
Words cannot describe their brilliance!
Ha ha, I never thought it has a bad meaning. Neither do admin. Otherwise admin would censor the band's name. - zxm
Eh? Is this a cuss word. I don't know much about SA rock bands. But this band was great. - zxm
Best South African band in history... Sing oor dinge what vir die jeug saak maak
I love the Parlotones! Wish they'd come to the USA!
I love them they are the best, they deserve to be on top 10
Greatest 1 word only
They are "The Best" I can't understand why they don't have a worldwide sucess yet.2 Comments
These guys might not have invented South African rock but they sure as hell perfected it! Van Coke Kartel + Fokofpolisiekar = Afrikaans rock bands by far!
The complete South African rock band.
God dank vir klank
My personal favourite band. Lyrics are beautiful
Cool alternative rock band from the 80's and 90's. - Huntern
Gotta be up there, come with me now is a great song
Climate Comtrol is a relatively new band but one of my favorites. The lead singer has a good singing voice and the bass player has a good metal scream. Listen to A Bouquet Of Hate, An Ocean Of Questions to see what I mean - Danielsun182
Amazing Band, can't believe they r not yet rated/listed on this ranking. Their music apeals to all ages! Truly amazing.
They aren't that famous, only lasted for a year, but pioneered heavy metal music. - 445956
Beloved is a grunge / alt rock band from Johannesburg. Their music is heavily influenced by the nineties and there is something very ‘moreish’ about listening to it. Unlike how many people would state that Soundgarden’s early material is difficult to listen to, there is something very accessible and easy about Beloved’s music. There’s a certain sense of charm to this band and it comes through in their music.
