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

I wonder why pierce the veil is so low on this list I think it should be in the top 20

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

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.

69 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn

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.

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.

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

The best thing since nirvana is 31?

74 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!

75 Santana

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".

79 Queen Extravaganza
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

The fact that they are not way higher on this list invalidates the whole thing...
