I would suggest everyone who voted bands other than radiohead... Give it a try and you will get to know what is music!

What! Radiohead has made an influence in Muse and Coldplay, radio head are the masters of the alternative

Radiohead are not comparable to other bands. They are special.

Ha ha, you people know nothing about music,with nickelback at 4 and radiohead at 48. ask a critic, SERIOUS music fan, or musicain what the best band is and you'll get the same answer - RecklessGreed

47 Wolfmother Wolfmother ...read more.

A very underrated band. Wolfmother is not like other 21st century bands. Their music looks a lot like 70s rock and I like it!

Wolfmother all the way.
No band has been more consistent with their sound as much as wolfmother has been. Also the band started in 2000. At the dawn of the next century.
I would like to see it higher up. A seriously underrated band.

Althought their music is derivative of late 60s and 70s rock, maily jimi hendrix. They have been genre loyal. Neo Psychedelic rock, and stoner rock. Stockdale really has a very trippy voice. Should be ranked higher. Nickleback is a disgrace. Just saying.
Linkin park probably deserves first place. The rest of the list is badly fixed.
Wolfmother m/
This band hits you right in the childhood.

49 Alter Bridge Alter Bridge Alter Bridge is an American rock band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 2004. The band consists of lead vocalist and guitarist Myles Kennedy, lead guitarist and backing vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

Alter Bridge is such a mature band with great lyrics that connect with everyone. Myles' powerful angelic vocals have no equal, in my opinion. He can also contribute in guitar alongside the solo genius, Mark Tremonti. Tremonti can also sing. AB's tracks rest heavily on a very good rhythm section from bassist, Brian Marshall, and drummer, Scott "Flip" Philips. AB works hard and really care for their fans. Though Myles is in his mid-40s, I see a bright, long future for the powerhouse of Alter Bridge. The only reason AB isn't as popular as they should be is that people think that they rip off Creed. You wouldn't even know that Alter Bridge is 3/4 of Creed if you just listened to them. Not only Myles' vocals, but more freedom for the rest of the band easily separates them and makes them superior to Creed. Give Alter Bridge's "Blackbird", "Cry of Achilles", or "Isolation" a listen. Then you can pass judgment on the 2000s' greatest overall band.

The hardest working Rock band working today! When you take Awesome talent Ridiculous music Intense Lyrics 4 Phenomenal Men... You Get = the Greatest Rock Band Today! Their Talent and Passion blows away this list!

The music is heavy, but it has great melody. If Creed is decent, Alter Bridge is excellent

Can't believe they are at 49, they should be at the top.
Where the hell are the Alter Bridge fans?

It has the best drumbeats in the world. My favourite song of them is radioactive.

They are really good. They should be placed higher up in the 20th place at least.

Combination of Electric Rock with Dubstep make their "Radioactive" so powerful

Their musics have several types of rock and all their lyrics are super powerful. I love them.
