The band's harsh vocals and fast paced tempos helped inspire speed more.

I'm not a very big motor head fan, because I have heard several of their songs and they all sound pretty much the same, and plus the singer sounds like he has a very small vocal range and he has been smoking too much. (also I can do a spot on impression of him singing. )


22 Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac Fleetwood Mac are a British-American rock band formed in July 1967, in London. The band have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, making them one of the best-selling bands of all time.

The band's more.

This band is epic. Their concerts are simply amazing, lyrics very heart-touching and motivating " I just wanna live while I'm alive. It's my life" "this romeo is bleeding but you can't see its blood. There's nothing but some feelings that this old dog, kicked up." "It's been raining since you left me, now I'm drowning in the flood. See I've always been a fighter but without you I give up." "We weren't born to follow, come on and get up of your knees. When life is a bitter pill to swallow you gotta hold on to what you believe." "Who says you can't go home? " Also, their songs tell you a story, a real inspiring story. If you don't believe me listen to wanted dead or alive, never say goodbye, living on a prayer or you give love a bad name and quit listening to these modern new songs that only talk about how many people they slept with, how many parties they've gone to and how drunk they had gotten, etc. I know not every modern song is like this but most of them are.

Best band ever!
The best literally the best!
Os Richie sambora is the best guitar player in the world!

26 Red Hot Chili Peppers Red Hot Chili Peppers The Red Hot Chili Peppers is an American funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. more.

The only reason that they are so low on this list is because of how underrated they are, just look up best RHCP songs and play the top 5.

RHCP, should be closer to the top. At least replace some of them. However, I agree with ONE choice: Led Zeppelin is the ONE & ONLY. Pink Floyd as well, great musicians...of ALL TIME.

27 Black Sabbath Black Sabbath Black Sabbath were a Heavy Metal band formed in Birmingham, England in 1968 by guitarist and songwriter Tony Iommi, Singer Ozzy Osbourne, Bassist and Main Lyricist Geezer Butler and Drummer Bill Ward.

Black Sabbath is the Godfather of rock/metal. They have such a unique style and they practically inspired many of the bands we have today. They ROCK!

The definition of epic.

Put these guys up there

I don't think people understand the definition of " epic ". Bon Jovi : NOT epic. U2 : EPIC. Epic means music of sweep and power, not music that is dull and predictable. Again, U2... E.P.I.C.

34 Muse Muse Muse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including five MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, more.

Just an awesome band.

Muse must be put higher on this list. Muse has literally no crappy albums. Their first to most recent albums have shown their immense capabilities. Muse should be way above RHCP whom have many albums that are just bad. RHCP aren't a bad band but they are no where near Muse's epicness. Muse is LEGENDARY.

35 Yes Yes Yes are an English rock band formed in 1968 by bassist Chris Squire and singer Jon Anderson. They first achieved success in the 1970s with a progressive, art and symphonic style of rock music.

Yes below Dream Theatre? I DON'T THINK SO.

I think they should be higher. Roundabout is the best song!

Yes is Mount Everest. Dream Theatre is a wet sand castle.
