62 Queens of the Stone Age Queens of the Stone Age Queens of the Stone Age is an American rock band from Palm Desert, California, United States, formed in 1996. The band's line-up includes founder Josh Homme, alongside longtime members Troy Van Leeuwen, Michael Shuman, Dean Fertita, and recent addition Jon Theodore.

Probably one of the most underrated bands of all time. Josh Homme is absolutely terrific at guitar and vocals. Their latest album,...Like Clockwork and their 2002 masterpiece Songs for the Deaf are two of the greatest albums of the century.

Great band. Didn't get big toll they released their best album "Songs for the Deaf".

Seriously why are bands like kiss on this list? Vote for bands from the 21st century

Should be in the top 10 easily, but they're obviously not sell-outs like most of the other bands on this mediocre list. Lots of great bands here, like Deftones, Staind, Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, AC/DC, Atreyu, Queens of the Stone Age, Lostprophets, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, Rush, The Offspring, blink-182 and Rise Against. But there are a lot of terrible bands as well, like Nickelback, Green Day, Slipknot, Simple Plan, Sum 41, U2, Wolfmother, Good Charlotte and Maroon 5.

Listen to "Black", "Waffle", "Live Again", "Face to Face", "Ugly", "Driven", "Inside", "Hope", "Forever", "Till Death" and "Decay".

73 Kings of Leon Kings of Leon

Absolutely amazing on CD and live! Great tunes that you can really rock out to and their first 3 albums are some of my favourite!

Should be in Top 10 easily! They are so underrated because everyone THINKS they are overrated since they have only heard of 2/3 of their songs but have never actually gone to listen to their first few albums. Go listen to KoL's first three albums and you will see what I am talking about! You won't regret it!

74 Queen Extravaganza

Unique, provocative and extremely special. A great collection of unconventional songs and superb live performances. Not popular as they should be just because of German lyrics and false rumours of being Nazis. Unbelievably consistent and talented as a whole.

This band deserves to be up top. Musically the composition of their songs is sick, it's like nothing else, and their lyrics are inspiring and life changing. These guys deliver the best live shows I've ever seen, they put energy and passion into everything that they do! Put these guys in the top ten!

This band is incredible, songs like meant to live, awakening, and dare you to move are all amazing. Lyrically, they have a lot of great meaning behind their songs.

77 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.

Under Sum 41? You've got to be kidding me. How many children under the age of 14 are lingering around in here? Too many it seems.

Typo mistake in previous post about pearl jam.
It is 20th century instead of 19th century.
And also
"AllMusic referred Pearl Jam as "the most popular American rock & roll band of the '90s.

Common people no Pearl Jam here!. Best alternate rock band of 19th century are still alive and rocking the world.
Just listen to "alive", "jeremy", "even flow ", "black" songs and you will understand their greatness.

78 The Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska.

Honestly, I think they are a pretty great band.

79 Lamb of God Lamb of God Lamb of God is an American heavy metal band from Richmond, Virginia. Formed in 1994, the group consists of vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell, and drummer Chris Adler.

Very cool band... Almost extraordinary... Almost a hunting screem... Love it very much...

80 The Killers The Killers The Killers is an American rock band formed in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2001, by Brandon Flowers and Dave Keuning.

They should be higher up. Mainly because of the amount of bands that are much higher up than them that they influenced.

Most of the bands in the top ten could all be a supergroup and you know what they would be called? The Sellouts.

Awesomeness in its coolest form

So many great songs. "Read my mind" is enough to put them in the top 25.
