111 Blue October
112 The Neighborhood
113 Powderfinger

One of the best rock bands of the last 20 years and vastly underrated unless you're Australian with some of the best lyrics and melodies that you will ever experience in rock music and if you are unfamiliar with them you need to hear them and you will be hooked if you like pure rock 'n' roll. I absolutely love most of the bands on this list but powderfinger to me is the perfect rock 'n' roll band with atmospheric elements and Bernard Fanning has an addictive voice. They broke up early unfortunately and had their farewell show in Oz a few years ago after only 20+ years

114 A Thousand Horses
115 Skies of Fire
116 Red Wanting Blue
117 Anathema
118 The Black Keys The Black Keys
119 Bastille Bastille Bastille are an English indie pop band formed in 2010. The group began as a solo project by singer Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. Beside Smith, the four-piece consists of Chris Wood, Will Farquarson, and Kyle Simmons.
