102 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
