This is bad-to-the-bone hard rock, no emo-screamo, or happy joy joy, so you can take your pansy little flute and go home.

61 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

63 Cryptic Fate Cryptic Fate

A true rock band from Bangladesh with pure fresh vibe and unique work. Although the vocal doesn't sync proportionally to their awesome music creations, still they are the purest so far.

One of the top leading rock bands of Bangladesh with an amazing lineneup. The most attractive part of this band is their own vocal as well as bassist Shakib bhai. His groomy voice with the instruments made them able to win hearts of the listeners. Wearing superman t-shirt this amazing vocalist had a great contribution to reach Cryptic Fate in this position

Cryptic fate is usually a heavy metal/ prog metal band. and in some songs they extended to extreme metal genres. even if they have some hard rock songs, but they aren't popular for it. - zxm

Okay, they copy too much AC/DC, but anyway, this is one of the greatest current hard rock bands, and it should be ranked higher.

70 Lordi Lordi Lordi are a Finnish hard rock/heavy metal band, formed in 1992 by the band's lead singer, songwriter and costume maker, Mr Lordi.

Only at 44!? Lordi is just the best hard rock band ever! Rise Against has nothing to do to do here. It is hadcore. Neither Avenged Sevenfold, System Of A Down, Disturbed, Anthrax, or any other metal band. This top ten list concerns only hard rock bands!

76 Alice Cooper Alice Cooper Alice Cooper was an American rock band formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1964. The band consisted of lead singer Vince Furnier, Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, and Neal Smith.

Alice frigging invented theatrics in rock. How can one not vote the man up when he has such great songs such as I'm Eighteen, School's Out, and Billion Dollar Babies? Or albums like Billion Dollar Babies, Love it to Death, and Welcome to My Nightmare?

Still a great live act. Brutal Planet and The Last Temptation are two of his best works.

Still the greatest ever. - warrantsbestgirl

You guys are retarded, how is Alice Cooper this low!?!? He's should at least be below 20. Like come on people, he created rock theatrics!

77 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

They are the blue print of a commercial hard rock band, and that's not a bad thing. They are one of my favorite bands of all time. You can here the Pantera influence in their riffs. Those who know a bit about them would know they are huge Pantera fans.

This should be number 1! It's the best band ever and I think I am not the only one that think this band is one of the greatest.

LOL!

THEY SUCK

80 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.

They basically carried the torch of grunge music along with nirvana.. Its impossible to think of 90's music without taking them into account.. Nirvana is the reason why alternative music broke into mainstream consciousness.. Pearl Jam was their staunchest ally in cementing that breakthrough (musically of course).

Pearl jam is pretty famous, but I didn't expect them to be this low to the ground.

Pearl jam is under rated here! It's better than Creed
