21 Skillet Skillet Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

This is one uniquely talented band who have managed to break stereotypes around bands with Christian members. John Cooper is an excellent bassist/singer/songwriter with a very talented couple of ladies to back him up. Their lead guitarist Seth Morrison is very good, too. Listen to Circus For A Psycho if you don't believe me. Great lyrics and powerful music is what they stand for.

WHOA!... I just checked all d bands above skillet and none, not even 1 of dem can beat dis band. Hero, awake and alive, rebirthing, comatose, rise, what I believe, not gonna die, fingernails... I can't name them all. All there songs are just amazing. They try to reach out to people with the lyrics, instruments and their voices. This band is keeps getting better and better and they won't fade anytime soon. They are the best

So low down on this list? Anyway, Skillet is wicked awesome! The lyrics, arrangements, guitars, and vocals all help to make Skillet so great.

They're songs are amazing! This should be higher on the list - BlueFrostOfThunderClan

Godsmack is amazing got to be higher up on this list!

GODSMACK IS THE BEST BAND! these guys really know how to steal the show and blow the speakers with their (hard) rock. Sure, on a list of this..., godsmack belongs FAR above these stupid emo bands like Green Day and bands like Nickelback. Godsmack ROCKS!

I know most of his songs are 80s songs but he is still one of the greatest rock and roll artists of all time. I love his music. His best songs are livin on a prayer and it's my life. I don't get why he is not even in the top 20 in this list. When will the minimum quantity reach.

Pioneering rock music through the 21st century, AM's innovative integration of other rock genres shows pure creativity and extensive musicianship. They are The Rolling Stones of our generation.

How these aren't in the top 10 is ridiculous! Fall out boy for example or maroon 5 aren't comparable to arctic monkeys

It's a shame they are so low. Such a talented group. While most people nowadays only know them for AM, every single album they have is amazing. Alex Turner is easily one of the greatest lyricists of the 21st century. Their music never gets old.

Wait what?! Even a insane person is sane enough to know AM deserves to be at the top!

25 Shinedown Shinedown Shinedown is an American hard rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 2001 and founded by members Brent Smith, Brad Stewart, Jasin Todd, and Barry Kerch.

To me, Shinedown is incredible overrated and deserves much more fame (at least top 15). The message and genius behind their lyrics is awesome. Some killer tracks from their albums "Amaryllis" and "The Sound of Madness".

Their music is truly amazing, especially some of their old songs, I absolutely love "Enemies" and "Sound of Madness".

Should be a lot higher than #38, awesome band, haven't heard a song by them yet that I dislike.

There is no band in this era that had ballads like showdown

26 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. ...read more.

They take inspiration from kiss and other 20th century bands and create music with such depth and meaning its just wow. Also on warped tour.
P.S. really people? Back Street Boys? (But honest, give them a try)

I 'love BLACK VEIL BRIDES so much. I was ready to throw my laptop if they weren't in the top 25 at least. I mean come on, they gotta be above Muse at least. They are so badass dude. Even Falling in Reverse for that matter. I LOVE THEIR LYRICS SO MUCH ITS JUST BEAUTIFUL. You don't listen to music like theirs.

They're amazing'. I generally feel so happy that I really get to know 'bout 'em. They're really life savers and they've got that ability to bring out those person's caught in the hands of a monster called depression. They've changed my life. They've let me known 'bout the fact that if life's tough, you're the only person who could come over to it by your initiative, instead of commitin' suicide. I thank 'em and will be doing' it for the rest of my life.

What in the HELL are they doing down here?!? In the Top 5 without ANY DOUBT. - LopsisdedSkull

28 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name is derived from a fictional martial arts maneuver in the 2003 film Kill Bill.

It absolutely aches me to know that Five Finger Death Punch isn't at least above Black Veil Brides. One of the best, part of my teenage years growing up.

I absolutely love five finger death punch #1

You should be lower than this you garbage

Dream theater deserves to be at the top. Far better than Linkin Park and others

This band doesn't fit with the rest in this top. And actually is far away better than everyone here.

Asking Alexandria has an amazing drummer! They definitely should be in the top 10!

Asking Alexandria should be in top 10!

38 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

Excuse me, 30 Seconds to Mars and Muse. You are standing in the way of the true biggest Rock Band today! Paramore deserves to be on top, not just because of Hayley's awesome voice and equally awesome hair, but because of their songs that reflect the feelings of teenagers in the present generation. Now, please step aside because PARAMORE IS THE ONLY TRULY AT THE #1 SPOT.

My favourite band is in 17th place its not possible... Best vocals by Hayley, best music by Taylor and Jeremy... Its should be at no... Green day is good band but not better than paramore... All albums are good and my favorite album brand new eyes... So please vote for paramore it really deserve number 1 place...

They had a break-up but they stayed strong and released a new song in 2011. "Monster" was part of the Transformers Movie soundtrack and was a YouTube hit.

Paramore are perfect so move over Green Day bloody hell

40 Tool Tool Tool is an American progressive metal/alternative metal band, that was formed in 1990. ...read more.

Pretty much all these bands are just crappy products of the radio industry. Tool is actually amazing and each song and album is loaded with meaning. They have by far the most talent and highest quality music of any of these groups. They don't get on the radio that much because they make genuine music.
