102 The Script The Script The Script is an Irish pop rock band formed in 2001. The band comprises keyboardist and lead vocalist Danny O'Donoghue, guitarist and vocalist Mark Sheehan and drummer Glen Power.

Wide range of song genres, Great singer. Probably the latest rock band to get to number 2 in the charts. They have also got to number 4 and their first single We Cry got to number 15. - biddiebob99

My favorite band. They are very inspirational and have amazing lyrics in every song. They don't have one song don;t love. They deserve to be number one.

Amazing lyrics in their songs and a great sound - usiddiq93

Amazing voices, lyrics + originality.

103 The Doors The Doors The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore.

What! Why are the doors so far below? The band which inspired millions of people and also led a revolutionization against THE MAN (for those who have watched 'school of rock'), this is unacceptable. They need to be high, high and higher.

Best band ever how is it at 67 should be number 1 can't believe one direction and Taylor swift are a head the doors influenced so many people and Jim Morrison has such a great voice should be 1

I give up on hope for humanity since Kesha is higher than the Doors... :(

Unacceptable. I wonder if anyone who voted has actually heard the Doors music - VaticanCameos

105 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

No matter what they say Three Days Grace is and will always will be #1. Adam Gontier, Barry Stock, Brad Walst, and Neil Sanderson are my heroes. Their music is focused on every emotion that every person feels wether if its angry, sad, happy, love, or hate. Their music gets me through the tough times and that is why they are #1.

An incredibly fantastic musician. Morrissey was brilliant in the Smiths, and continues to excel with his solo music. Can write the most amazing lyrics which always feels so real.

112 The Weeknd The Weeknd Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.

Eddie Cochran is NOT on the list... Damn, the world...

Great artist and next big thing in pop

The Weeknd is the prince of pop and should be in top 20. First artist to top alll charts on billboard the same week. He had both first 2 spots. Stole the number 1 from himself.

If today was your last day would you make your mark by mending a broken heart? Well that song inspired me to do kindness! I am a rockstar thanks to nickelback - JDagger500

Nickelback get's no respect from mainstream audiences. And that pisses me off!

Yes the members are cool and nice guys but Nickelback will always be a terrible band. - Powerfultekin

How is Nickelback ahead of Gorillaz? And more importantly, how is Gramatik nowhere to be found on this list? Two of my favorite artists barely receiving any recognition at all.

He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer he has been ...read more.

Freddie was an artist with a voice straight from heaven. he energized every performance, every song so much that he blows almost every other singer out of the water. Freddie should be at least 100 places higher!

Freddie should be WAY higher in this list. He has inspired over a BILLION people to be themselves. The notes he could reach were incredible, and it's REAL music to my ears. How is Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Meghan Trainor higher than him?

Freddie is and will always be the greatest singer of all time. His amazing vocals allowed him to reach notes like no other. Truly one of a kind. He was gift-wrapped right from God to bring billions together.

Nickel Back beat Freddie mercury?

115 Creedence Clearwater Revival Creedence Clearwater Revival Creedence Clearwater Revival, often shortened to Creedence and abbreviated as CCR, was an American rock band active in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Should be much higher, makes me disappointed

Wow... This is sad. I can understand CCR not even being top 10, but how can they be this low? Some of the artists ranked higher than them I've never heard of...

This is just amberessing, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber befor CCR? Laugh out loud

116 The Jam The Jam
117 Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong Louis Armstrong, nicknamed Satchmo or Pops, was an American trumpeter, composer and singer who was one of the most influential figures in jazz.

Come on guys... give Pops some credit. I mean, his song Hello Dolly beat the Beatles!

118 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

Let's just be clear one direction is talented. Metal bands are generally talented. Many types of metal, such as thrash metal and death metal, do not take much effort for those who are good musicians. Seriously, canniball corpse is screaming into the mike while guitar and drums are being played fast. Not saying it's bad, just stating the facts. One direction also does not put time and effort into their songwriting. A talented boy band who simply makes music to sell records (no shame in that, but it is unoriginal on purpose). Don't use the charts as an excuse for them being this high. 5 words. Who. Let. The. Dogs. Out. So do you guys really think 1d should be 300 some spots above outkast, for example? No. And mentioning how good every single metal band to ever exist is irrelevant and childish, let alone untrue. Never said you couldn't like them or metal music. Just saying...

Why do people prefer listening to this unholy garbage that is made without any effort, thought or originality instead of complex, intelligent and energetic music like metal? One Direction is the prime example of an artist that doesn't deserve the fame that it's been given. Do not listen to this terrible disgrace to music.

Listen to real music; like AC/DC, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, KISS, Motorhead, Pantera, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Ozzy Osborne Venom, Disturbed, Linkin Park Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, Rob zombie, Dragonforce, Rhapsody of fire Gloryhammer, Blind Guardian, Avenged Sevenfold, Killswitch Engage, Annihilator, and Alice Cooper.

They have no talent. - RiverClanRocks

I love you One Direction! They should be above 100 and they are better than the stupid Little Mix who writes bad songs, Jessie J who has a very voice and Katy Perry who writes songs as well.
