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.

86 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.

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.

This list is plagued with crappy post-grunge, pop punk, and emo bands. By the late 90s rock music was facing a major drought in terms of quality bands. During this drought, the most prominent bands were very derivative, exploiting genres that had been expended of fresh, creative material. Bands such as Nickelback and Blink-182 were not inventive or creative, they merely refashioned the relevant rock styles (grunge and punk respectively) in away that their songs could fit into these genres by name only. Superficially, the music resembled that which was already so popular, but the ethos, the integrity had been stripped.

Rock music required a reboot. That came in the form of the garage-rock revival of the early 2000s. These artists created music that sounded so fresh when compared to the musical landscape of that period. They drew influences from the original rock & roll pioneers. This was a very welcome change.

Arguably the most prominent of these garage-rock revival bands ...more

Ridiculous to not be in top 30

The strokes at 150? Fiuu, I was starting to take this list seriously

ACDC CHANGED ROCK FOREVER BEST ROCK BAND I'VE EVER HEARD

AC/DC are the greatest band that I have ever seen live, even at their age! Seen Metallica 3 times and even they don't come close.

The Young's and co do a phenomenal job every time they play

Okay what how can people seriously put Lincoln Park above chilly peppers acdc sublime and Green Day...
Anyways acdc isn't really a 21st century band but they're the best on this list. Wow people seriously think about these votes... Lincoln Park is barely even rock. A lot of this is pop being voted for by people who don't know rock.
