They are so good. Go on YouTube and look up deth starr live at blizzcon. listen to the whole thing minus the end. You may say it isn't two people, but they have done concerts with just them. they are VERY good so don't pissed that they are one. it is debatable, and I could win the argument most likely. - maggot-104

Tenacious D: Jack Black and Kyle Gass, and sometimes featuring Dio and Dave Grohl. And the Pick of Destiny is my favorite rock related movie, next to School of Rock and The End of the End - SoldierOfFortune

Been listening since 1985, since Shout and Everybody Wants to Rule the World (the Dennis Miller theme) came out. I thought they folded, but recently found out they're going on tour in 2019. What rock have I been under?

9 Royal Blood Royal Blood Royal Blood are an English rock duo formed in Brighton, East Sussex, in 2013. The band's sound is reminiscent of and rooted in modern blues rock, hard rock, garage rock and psychedelic rock.

Top 3!

How the hell are they not in the top 5

The best band of the past 3 years

If u see them live, you would put them at number 1. I’ve been listening to them since they opened up for foo fighters in Camden, NJ. But when my number 1 favorite band “queens of the Stone Age” announced a tour, it said royal blood is opening up for them in festival pier. I immediately got tickets. 3 months later, they played their set, and I was front row! Both bands kicked absolute ass. Royal blood is now my second favorite band.

10 Local H

In my opinion, Local H isn't only the best 2 piece bands, they're one of the best bands to combine grunge and plain old rock to create hard hitting tunes. They really resonate with me at least. They could very easily be the textbook definition of rock.

Their live sets inspire riots!

Tenacious D? Really? I don't have anything against them, they're good in their own way. The Carpenters are just too good to not be on this list. At least in the top 10. - logblobo
