Top 10 Most Popular BandsOzzyVanHalen Which band is known by just about all adults, teens, kids and all age groups?
The Top Ten
This list is stupid. I don't think any band could ever surpass the image of the Beatles. It just can't be done. They are just too prevalent and influential to ever really NOT be the most popular band. Regardless of musical quality, the Beatles win hands down.
It's kinda nauseating; the Beatles being so dominant in the popular music scene but they do deserve it. Easy winners here.
This list is about the most POPULAR bands, not the BEST bands. The Beatles have sold around half a billion albums while Metallica has only sold 110 million albums.
What can any body say the Beatles were and forever will be the most fantastic band of all times...!V 33 Comments
Starting with the four horsemen in 1981, Metallica will outlast all bands in the history of music. When I was only 16 years of age in 1986, I stated Metallica was currently and will wind up being the greatest hard rock / heavy metal band of all time. I was laughed at.
If you're talking about popularity, then Metallica is currently the most popular band. I have seen one or two people don't know about Beatles but seen none who don't know Metallica. - zxm
While the Beatles have sold more albums, Metallica is certainly more popular. Michael Jackson sold a hell of a lot of albums, but he's not really popular.
Ride on best band ever🤘V 25 Comments
I think Queen is most popular band. They music is perfect. And after Freddie Mercury died AIDS stayed very important theme.
Not even the most popular band of their own late-70's era. Led Zeppelin, the Eagles, and The Rolling Stones were all much more popular, along with Elton John.
Queens rule. Other bands don't. Queens are well known, and powerful, along with kings.
Should be number oneV 5 Comments
Led Zeppelin is the father of heavy metal. The greatest music genre ever. Taking the elements of blues rock and turning it into heavy metal. And they are very popular and much better then some Beatles band.
To the ones who says Led Zeppelin is heavy metal you can go and relearn your music history
Led Zeppelin should be two right next to the beatles they are amazing and very talented

One direction is definitely the most popular band right now. Nice voices, very cute, good kids, and girls love them! Several awards for their style, looks, and music. 1directioner!
They are talented singers, good looking and have broken many records and won a ton of awards. Most popular band on the planet right now
They've got that british thing going for them ;P and they're good looking which helps
There are many talented singers thus I like one direction.V 118 Comments
Right now Linkin Park is the most popular band m/ despite that I'm a LP fan I admit that the other bands here are much more better but my musical taste is Linkin Park and I love em m/
Linkin Park is the greatest band I've ever seen. Its really amazing.
Black eyed peas above linkin park this list seriously need to be altered
I think most people who voted don't even know much songs of linkin park
IN THE ENDV 64 Comments
Even if you have set metallica on the first place, but you all know that AC/DC is the most popular band ever. Over 50 millions Back in Black albums sold. Is not that enough?
Pure power and energy...rocking for 40 years already, who else could take their place? I mean... If AC/DC isn't the best...no one would be.
Should be top spot no problem!
It is such a sick band... Also love back in blackV 4 Comments
Band of the generation X. All time greats!
Linkin Park above Nirvana? What a joke. - Unrealism
They are the best band ever
They should be in top 3.V 4 Comments
Awesome, awesome band should be number one.
Guns N' Roses is awesome! They're the best
The voice of Axl Rose with the guitar of Slash. Guns N' Roses is all round awesome. With Amazing lyrics and catchy tunes.
My favorite band of all timeV 5 Comments
This world has many bands, not all of the bands can create music like these folks do. Their lyrics are so meaningful, you can dance to their music, and if you go back to their first few albums, they have created plenty of rock songs as well. This band has made a variety of songs, that's what makes them so brilliant. They've made pop, rock, pop rock, acoustic, indie, and alternative music. They're already legendary, and they're still growing. Disappointed to see Coldplay at the tenth position. They should at least be in the top three.
My favorite band... I love most of their music, and there are LOTS of people who know them. Especially after Viva La Vida.
Almost everyone has heard and actually likes a Coldplay song, but doesn't even realize it. Their songs, including a lot of their early ones, are extremely inspiring and send amazing messages.
This band makes my life look more beautiful.. Music isn't only about breaking records or getting award. It's about what message or inspiration you get from em. Which coldplaye does better than any bandV 23 Comments
Everyone who speaks English has heard of the Floyd
Pink Floyd member are the music philosophers of 20 and 21 century.
They should be in the top 5... they are the BEST

This duo band is slowly become one of the most heard, either by word of mouth, or by radio, right now. Lyrics are profound that can be interpreted in many different ways while creating this sound that intrigues many listeners. The duo has an incredible chemistry that is felt in the music and most importantly in their live shows. Their sound ranges from reggae, rock, alt, rap, pop, and many others that one cannot help but feel the music and once the music brings you in, one cannot help but to listen to the lyrics and understand its meaning.
One direction is slowly rising to fame as they have a fresh and refreshing genre of music which is very awesome to hear. Their lyrics are not so complex but the meaning of the songs is something we can all relate to. Who knows after some time when people start recognizing them they might as well be on top.
They are great, amazing, love them! Do you have any idea how many people they have saved/inspired/helped/etc with their music?

They are an epic band of rock and should be number 3
They are one of the best
Should be at no 3...after the Beatles n Pink Floyd
Definitely a modern band with an old school feel that I really like. Every song is unique with sound and lyrics and can be applied to anything. Green Day has pretty good vocals, and it's a classic. - Papergirl
Green Day has been around since 1986, and they're still huge. Green Day is always changing, yet when you hear by them you can still always identify it as Green Day. Should be in top 5.
The leaders of modern rock... Still kicking today with the youth after many others have died

Well here are your WAY BETTER SONGS! Hallowed be thy name (the daddy of all metal songs), the trooper, fear of the dark, the rime of the ancient mariner, number of the beast, run to hills, aces high, the talisman, dance of the death, n many more!. Iron Maiden owns Metallica any day! Up the irons!
How is One Direction above the greatest band of all time *cough* *cough* Maroon 5. Adam is so hot and hilarious on the Voice. Maroon 5 has the best music. They need to be higher up!
