One of the best punk-rock bands next to Green Day which I also love

How could paramore be this low... So they arnt as heavy metal or screamo as some bands but they have really good songs and really good lyrics too

Oh my god, their stuff is so passionate. They really want to get their message accross to the public.

90 Thin Lizzy Thin Lizzy Thin Lizzy are an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in 1969. Their leader Phil Lynott was composer or co-composer of almost all of the band's songs, and the first black Irishman to achieve commercial success in the field of rock music. Thin Lizzy's most successful songs, "Whiskey in the Jar", "Jailbreak" more.

A hard rock list where Thin Lizzy isn't in top 5 at least, and with bands like Linkin Park in top 10 can't be taken seriously. Best hard rock band ever, Metallica is metal and the same goes for a lot of bands in this list.

I think they accidentally switched Bon Jovi and Thin Lizzy because that would be a lot more accurate

Zeppelin good hendrix excellent lizzy best

91 Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

the best example of pure black metal
