43 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. 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 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.

Skillet, Disturbed, A7X, Green Day, Linkin Park, Muse, KISS, Black Veil Brides and U2 are ahead of Radiohead. Let that sync in.

I don't hate any of these bands (except for BVB and modern Linkin Park), but how the hell do they beat Radiohead? Am I the only human who has listened to Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows, The King of Limbs and A Moon Shaped Pool? I think I have if Radiohead are 48th place.

50 Wolfmother Wolfmother 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.

52 The All-American Rejects The All-American Rejects The All-American Rejects are an American rock band formed in Stillwater, Oklahoma in 1999.

53 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.
54 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

Pierce the veil save peoples lives with lyrics like theirs. They are the most understanding band. They should at least be in top 10

Saved lives and are such beautiful people, inside and out. They should be in the top 10

59 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
