Oh Man! Is my eyes are cheating with me they should be at least in top 10. thier song Welcome To Black Parade, Famous Last Words, This Is How I Disappear, Helena is best ever hard rock song. they have totally different personality. they are live legends!

YE, My Chemical Romance will always be my saviour, My Chemical Romance is not death yet, their songs WELCOME TO THE BLACK PARADE, I don't LOVE YOU, ITS NOT A FASHION STATEMENT, etc are the best song ever

What?! 72?! I mean, I agree that the ones in the top ten are classics but I couldn't find Cream on this list at all and they're, like, one of the best bands of this genre ever!

206 Red Hot Chili Peppers Red Hot Chili Peppers The Red Hot Chili Peppers is an American funk-rock and alternative rock band, that was founded in 1983. more.

Only the BEST band ever! They should be number one!

Flea, john, anthony, Chad
Flea best bassist, john one of the greatest, all together the best

207 Heart Heart Heart is an American rock band that first found success in Canada and later in the United States and worldwide.

From 75-80 Heart was a bad ass band. This is long before MTV changed them to pop queens.

208 Marilyn Manson

Awesome band
Awesome lyrics
Awesome tunes
Overall awesomeness. Really know how to rock out live and music videos are just pure art. What real music should be.

Marilyn Manson is the most amazing guy EVER! And the band is just as amazing especially Twiggy. You guys rock hard. Peace out

The most innovative artist since Bowie was Ziggy where do you think Ga Ga got 90 percent of here fashion?

Woah! Marilyn Manson should be higher. Definitely above Linkin Park and Green Day!

209 Godsmack Godsmack Godsmack is an American rock band from Lawrence, Massachusetts, formed in 1995. The band is composed of founder, frontman and songwriter Sully Erna, guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill, and drummer Shannon Larkin.

The only reason why godsmack is not that close to the top of this list is due to the fact the term "Hard Rock" is apparently lost on some people. Most of the bands near the top do not classify as hard rock nor have they made anything of the sorts that can even be considered rock. Going through this list has made me want to beat my head against the table as it only points out the fact people have no idea on what each genres are. Godsmack is one of the best Hard Rock bands out there that has been around for some time now and if you need an example of what a hard rock band sounds like just listen to some godsmack and if you still don't understand youll need to be smack by GOD.

Godsmack is the greatest band no matter what this pole says or any other place

Godsmack is one of the greatest rock bands. There music is awesome!

The best band ever...! Nobody can play heavy stuff thts got beauty like them... All other death metal bands like maiden, judas priest are crap!

Motorhead Is Truly One of the greatest Bands of all time enough said!

Best Hard rock band ever

Enough said

Nickelback is the real and greatest hard rock band ever! They should be in top 10! Nirvana-Smells like teen spirit is Nirvana's only good song! Metallica plays metal not hard rock! Bon Jovi is like Nickelback, nothing Better!

Hard Rock = Nickelback
They are just the band for this title! They and no one else! They are bands here that play metal! Not hard rock! Nickelback is the band you're looking for!

Nirvana was a great band, but face it, their time is past. Nickelback is still breathing, and how they roar like lions! Chad Kroeger has an AMAZING voice that fits perfectly with the sound of the band. They should be in the top Ten if not Five on this list!

These guys are great!

The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some more.

Green Day on 25? It is the best punk rock artist and best alternative artist and being so popular worldwide. Green Day made broadway which is so great. Green Day is the best one of the best rock artist.

Green Day is better than... The Avenged Sevenfold, scorpions and many of the craps listed above

You guys do not seem to realise it's HARD ROCK, that's why Green Day isn't in the top, they are not hard rock

Its sch a grt band...

213 Muse Muse Muse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including five MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, more.

Muse is the very best Active hard rock group (Nightwish, Blind Guardian, Metallica etc. Are metal) I cannot believe that they are this low on the list. Their riffs are great, lyrics are pretty cool and they are one of the few rock groups around that still sounds fresh. Nickleback, shinedown, Three days Grace, 3 Doors Down, Staind, etc. Are all standard post grunge band with no real innovation and it all sounds the same. Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, and Nirvana are some of the greatest rock bands ever but among active rock bands, Muse is the king.

My favorite band ever! It takes rock to a different level! These 3 brilliant artists had changed my taste in music... See them live and you will know how brilliant they are!

so many good songs, so amazing live, 6 great albums, brilliant musicians, what more do you need? - GlonnAtronnAdonnAdict

Are you sick? Muse is the best band forever! They are harder than rock

216 Foo Fighters Foo Fighters Foo Fighters is an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of his previous band. The band consists of obviously Dave Grohl (lead vocalist, songwriter), Pat Smear (lead guitarist, pianist), Nate Mendel more.

Foo Fighters ARE GREATEST BAND EVER PERIOD. Nirvana's drummer started this band, Dave Groehl (i think that's how its spelled). Best band of all time.

Foo Fighters should be on the top 20 at least. You should hear Pretender, Everlong, Big me, Monkey Wrench, These days, Walk, Dear Rosemary to name the best.

I can't believe I fell for this list. Foo Fighters should be top 20 at least. Joke page

This band seems to be extremely underestimated in this chart...

Rammstein is just a good foreigner band, who can go up with the other American bands

Rammstein is truely the only metal band with class. Americans don't understand the band because of a different style and language. I rank their performances above the rest, truely fearful and genuin.

I don, t get this... Well ok Metallica is great but rammstein Du Hast and Ich Will are super, maybe metalica is god tthen ramm is ze god of ze god! ICH WILL RAMMSTEIN! DU HAST RAMMSTEIN!
And deep purple great too...

218 Tesla

Tesla is much better than most of the bands on this list. They actually had the chops to play... not the look of posers.

Amazingly unique vocals, with crazy guitar licks from the electric duo, Hannon and Skeoch. Every song they made just oozed pure hard rock! Tesla is the ultimate hard rock band! Too bad they never got the recognition they so deserved

The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David more.

is there something to saz about this band.i think it is all already told.this is the best band ever.fieldy is the best bassist ever.noone has his style,and jon is of corse the best singer.i love them so much.KORN RULES.Vote for serbia

my absolute FAVORITE band. they've gotten letters from fans saying that if it weren't for korn's music, they would've killed themselves. very varied sound over the years, and a whole bunch of emotion (especially on their debut album). BEST OF THE BEST! - fieldy_freak

KoRn is unique and amazing I listen to it and love their music since I was a kid. And I really hope they continue to be one of the best heavy metal bands in the world, for as long as they can.

Korn make the purest definition of rock. Its like those guys were handpicked to form the band. No other band has held on to their signature way of rock perfomance than korn. Rock on korn.
