145 Dragonforce Dragonforce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

Everybody believes through the fire and flames was their only song, but if you actually listen to their other songs, they are awesome.

146 Foghat Foghat Foghat are an English rock band formed in London in 1971. The band is known for its prominent use of electric slide guitar in its music.

I can't believe they weren't even on this list...

148 The Allman Brothers Band The Allman Brothers Band The Allman Brothers Band was an American rock band formed in Jacksonville, Florida in 1969 by brothers Duane Allman and Gregg Allman, as well as Dickey Betts, Berry Oakley, Butch Trucks, and Jai Johanny "Jaimoe" Johanson.

Agree entirely. Absolutely in the top 5 bands of all time. Listen to "Live at the Fillmore" and every single song is stunningly original in terms of composition, vocals, guitar, drumming, organ, etc. Truly an exceptional band.

This should be the best rock band in the world

Are u kidding me Duane allman the best guitar player, Greg allman greatest blues vocal, dickey betts... Rambling man, blue sky, Jessica, they are the greatest southern rock band of all time, should be around 30/35... Let's be real here

The best music I ever heard!

149 The J. Geils Band The J. Geils Band

Another underrated band that should be higher on the list. I love these guys. One of my top bands.

Their 1970-1975 stuff is as good as it gets!

Why they down here what

These guys should be remembered for more than just "Centerfold" and "Love Stinks." Their earlier stuff, such as "Musta Got Lost" "Give it To Me" and "Whammer Jammer" ranks among some of the greatest rock I've ever heard.

150 Europe Europe Europe is a Swedish rock band formed in Upplands Väsby, Stockholm in 1979 under the name Force by vocalist Joey Tempest, guitarist John Norum, bassist Peter Olsson and drummer Tony Reno.

The only thing they were known for is the Final Countdown. - Gruunge

151 KISS KISS Kiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

ARE you kidding 2012 if you didn't see kiss with ace and peter you didn't see kiss, saw kiss first time in 1974 long beach arena opened for wishbone ash and camel 30min set, the last your they opened for anyone, saw them again 1975 forum la the tour alive came from again 1977 anaheim stadium destroyer tour again 1978 love gun tour things began to fall apart after love gun until 1996 the reunion saw them in Dallas July 7 1996 the loudest crowd I ever heard ever and I've seen them all stones zep etc. The essence of kiss is ace Peter paul gene, now was magical.

This is a BULLS*** list. This band has gone strong for over 40 years. Two-thirds of the bands ahead of them were around for relatively short lengths of time. Only a few had the quality in their song catalogs, none had the stage show.

KISS is the best band to hit the stage since The Beatles! They take you to Detroit Rock City, they will Rock and Roll All Nite if you give them the chance! Hottest band in the world! Debate over

Should definitely be at number 1

152 The Beach Boys The Beach Boys The Beach Boys are an American pop rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

Why are the Beach Boys so low? Their surf songs are great pop tracks, but for those who still aren't convinced, "Pet Sounds" and "SMiLE" are among the greatest albums ever. Heck, when PAUL MCCARTNEY named "God Only Knows" his favorite song, there's got to be something.

Only group to seriously challenge the Beatles at the time

Just sublime harmonys and the sound of young america in the 60's.
With God only know's one of the simplest and greatest love songs ever

153 Chickenfoot
154 Asia

REALLY great band that still has the 80s rock sound in 2016. A must listen

155 Montrose

First album, one the best ever ever ever, still holds up today.

156 Manowar Manowar Manowar is an American heavy metal band from New York City, New York. Formed in 1980, the group is known for lyrics based on fantasy and mythology.
157 John Cougar Mellencamp

I love this guy! He has great music and some of his songs, like Rain on the Scarecrow, are based on his own life. He should be higher on the list.
