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.

164 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

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!

171 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
