Chevelle's music may not pull you in on a first listen, but after a few listens through you realise their music is actually fantastic and meaningful. They are one of the most inspiring bands of this age! They deserve to be higher. MUCH higher! Especially higher than Brokencyde, Black Veil Brides and Nickelback! Bands that shouldn't even be on this list!

I like the sex pistols, but overall I'm pissed that sick puppies isn't on this list anywhere. If you don't like sick puppies, you need a psychologist or something. Why aren't theory on the list?!

I love the Sex Pistols, but isn't this a hard rock list, not a punk list?

like usual the thrash pioneer's/legends get no notoriety yet again. If you've never heard the band OVERKILL I suggest you take a listen. Every album has the best crunchy ass chuggin riffs, they are the stomp riff masters and get absolutely no credit for the music they helped originate, yes folks they were inventing the thrash sound in jersey/new york the same time SUCKTALLICA was in california!

140 The Angels/Angel City

Mind blowing live act from Australia. The front man "Doc Neeson" is second to none. This band deserves to be on the list
