An 'influencer' band. Punk, mod whilst still being standard rock influence. Power chording, Marshall stack and discouraged screaming teen girls at gigs before many others. Townshend wrote the most honest self effacIng lyrics of all, was the most intellectual of the rock Gods without losing touch with the power of pop and pop culture which he understood better than most. Alsogot involved with charitable causes before it was popular. Boil down much of Rock music over the last 50 years and you will find the Who at the bottom of the saucepan.

31 Stick to Your Guns
I know this band is hardly popular, but they are definitely one of the most inspirational I know. I saw them in concert for the first time on December 15, 2012 and I was absolutely touched by their music. Most people will probably just think 'Oh, another metalcore band, nothing entertaining here. ', but I swear to you these guys are different. I was almost in tears when the lead singer, Jesse, gave a speech on how we are the young people that need to better this world. A lot of the time, we're told we're naive and we have no input, but the truth is, we're the future of this planet, and we have to change it to make it great. This band lets everyone know they aren't alone and that's what every song is about. Not to mention they have their own style and aren't like every other band in the book. Stick To Your Guns definitely deserves a spot on this list; they make me proud of what I listen to.
"I know that what's in front of me is a reflection of what is inside of me,
I see I need to be myself because it's so lonely in the eyes of someone else,
Oh yeah I feel,
Yeah I feel and I always will,
I starve to live free from fear,
To free myself before I disappear, I am forever more than just surviving,
This is my life and this life is my Diamond"
This band is simply awesome, the lyrics are relevant and inspiring to all who listen. A real band with a free mind and an open heart.

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.
Each one of their songs contains pure emotion. Their lyrics connect to people that are going through troubles and tells them to keep on living. They have spirit, power, emotion and the strength to fight so that people can keep on living.
Their songs mean something. You know they're not just throwing out these songs to make money. They have a cause, and they're willing to fight for it.
WHat?!? Why are they 26th? They should be in the top 10.

Their music helped me out of my dark times and made me a much happier person. They inspired me to want to help people when I grow up, to make a difference in people's lives. Whenever I was depressed and felt the urge to harm myself, I put the headphones in and ignored those dark feelings and let those songs lull me into happiness. I owe them my life.
