Why are they all the way down here.-. This is not right.

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

Asking Alexandria should be in top 10!

42 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.

43 Theocracy Theocracy Theocracy is a Christian progressive power metal band founded in 2002 by Matt Smith of Athens, Georgia.
44 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

46 Kasabian Kasabian Kasabian are an English rock band formed in Leicester in 1997. The band's original members consisted of vocalist Tom Meighan, guitarist and vocalist Sergio Pizzorno, guitarist Chris Karloff, and bassist Chris Edwards.

Easily one of the best and most underrated band of the 21st century. You won't know what hit you when you're at their gigs.

47 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

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

51 Crazy Town
52 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.

53 One Republic

Has the voters gone nuts? How can you see one republic at 59! Come on, vote 'em up to Top 10

Come on this band is better than Linkin Park and Green Day.

54 Nightwish Nightwish Nightwish is a symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996 by lead songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and lead singer Tarja Turunen.
55 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?

57 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock/metal band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

What Trent Reznor can come up with is without a doubt, GODLY-LIKE. He's the most brilliant person around right now. He's what makes Nine Inch Nails, Nine Inch Nails.

60 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

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

My favorite rockband of all time
