Top Ten Most Original Rock Bandsninjacobra
The Contenders: Page 5
Inventors of the "Loud Soft Loud" style heard on hundreds of hits to come. The most influential and underrated band you never heard of because they were so ahead of their time. Smart bands and artists of the early 90s knew how original they were, kept it a secret, and made a fortune by writing more-mainstream, less-weird versions of Pixies songs. Give their masterpiece "Doolittle" a spin and be inspired.
Nirvana, Radiohead, David Bowie, U2, The Strokes, Weezer and Bush have cited influence by the Pixies. Kurt Cobain & Dave Grohl have both said that "Smells Like Teen Spirit"- arguably the greatest alt rock anthem of all time - was essentially a rip of the Pixies.
This list was made for the pixies because it doesn't get any more distinct then the sound of Frank black and the pixies
How is the Cure! One of the most different sounding not even on the List! Name one band the cure sounds similar to? There isn't one! Is it Punk? Is it 80s Pop? Goth Rock, Alternative, Psychedelic, Post-Punk? No it's The Cure!
They did something incredible (yes they took inspiration from The Beatles) they brought together 3 genres of music...
Pop, Rock, and Classical
something that has never been done before...
Literally, the most original. Nothing is similar, full stop.
Great comedy;original jokes;great music different than any other band
I hate how some people wont even listen to one song because of how they look. My all time favourite band next to bring me the horizon. They are amazing people and I've seen them live and I'm currently counting down the next concert. They are amazing period. There newer album has a very good concept.. No words can describe how much I love them. So before you judge and call them "emo" give them a chance!
Sure they look a little scary at first, but if you went and listened to their newest album Wretched and Divine you would die on the inside and IMMEDIATELY buy the album. Not only do I love all their songs, but even if you're not into this genre of music this album is AMAZING TO WORK OUT TO! It's incredibly fast paced and hypes you up and there's like 2 songs that are a little slower to remind you to catch your breath! AMAZING!
Their music has a quality that a lot of people dislike but they have a connection with their fans that cannot be replaced.
The most amazing band ever love their music.
Definitely one of the most incredible stories in rock n roll and a very distinctive sound especially in Paul Stanley's voice which unfortunately is gone now but in incredible incredible iconic band in American rock
They have the most iconic make-up in the rock n roll/heavy metal era and their songs are jarmazing
Come on Zep lovers, move them up the list! Everyone alive in the 70s knows how much they influenced hard rock, blues rock, and acoustic rock. You had the top guitar riff-master, front man vocalist, and unparalleled rhythm section all in one band. Sure their songs were overplayed but what ground-breaking, innovative songs! Just on the basis of "Communication Breaksown," "Immigrant Song," "Black Dog," ""Going To California," "The Ocean," and "Kashmir" they should be top of the list.
Best rock band ever
Absolutely nothing like them before or after, if that doesn't make them unique nothignelse does
Okay this seriously blows my mind that they are so far down on the list but I guess I can just attribute that to too many millennials voting
" enough said :D "
Very original band, love it, they have very awesome lyrics, just listen to "Join Me In Death"
This is my favourite band ever. All their albums are differents and as good as the others. They are now a progressive rock band, but they passed through many genres.
How can we forget the only band in the world that are really original? The don't take any musical legacy, they are making their own music. This is the most original band. Nobody know who they really are, the band was found in mid 60s, their first album been released in 69' they didn't made a single live show until 1980 and they are still runing... and perfect.
Sorry but not only should they be included they should be top, nine members (well for most of their career), matching prison jumpsuits, bizarre masks, and a type of metal which had never been done before and has never been successfully copied
Number 80 seriously?
