I think they earn the right to be the best hard rock band due to what they've been doing for 20 years.

The first good band I really liked.

Best rock band ever!

Overrated, good it's not higher. - Disturbedpotato

47 Rise Against Rise Against Rise Against is an American hardcore punk band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1999. The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes. They are known for popularizing punk.

This band is simply amazing. There is no other band in the world in which you can put in any album and like every single song. They are simply perfect, and will remain that way forever.

Rise against is pure magic. Their drumming is awesome, and the best- their lyrics. They just touch the heart and believe me, you can't stop listening.

I remember when these guys were part of the Pop Punk scene...then they were pigeon holed as EMO...Just good rock, great song writing and great hooks

Number one after old school!

Halestorm is one of the best rock bands out there! Lzzy is queen

Not unlike Aussie hard rockers Baby Animals

One of the best band I've ever heard

Ok band...but very good to see a female lead vocal in a hard rock band, there should be more hot female singers in hard rock!...Just my opinion

59 The Jimi Hendrix Experience The Jimi Hendrix Experience The Jimi Hendrix Experience was an English-American rock band that formed in Westminster, London, in September 1966. Composed of singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jimi Hendrix, bassist and backing vocalist Noel Redding, and drummer Mitch Mitchell, the band was active until June 1969. During this time ...read more.

I don't understand this ranking, it's mostly Metal & hardcore bands who took the places other bands deserve like The Jimi Hendrix Experience or Lordi, they deserve a higher place for sure!

Answering to the bottom opinion - Lordi is more like metal rather than rock, so your argument is invalid that way.
P.S. Yeah, this top is consisting from people voting here, and it seems people like metal more, though metal as such is sometimes considered hard rock/rock, especially Heavy Metal, and what I see here is metalcore bands as well...that one is weird actually, because metal that is more under Heavy Metal is further from rock as such.

Jimi taught us how to play through those strings...

Without Jimi Hendrix, hard rock would not exist.

60 Europe Europe Europe is a Swedish rock band formed in Upplands Väsby, Stockholm in 1979 under the name Force by vocalist Joey Tempest, guitarist John Norum, bassist Peter Olsson and drummer Tony Reno.

They have reinvented themselves since the reunion, with a metalhead style with shades of blues that has evolved to become very consistent and without losing its brilliant melodies, which are Europe's trademark since the very beginning. Europe is the best!

Always deliver, great musicians and Joey Tempest is a great vocalist and front man.

There are great band but only few could be called legend and they are one of the legend
