Top 10 Most Talented BandsMarcopwnzatdrums
The Contenders: Page 3
In my opinion, they are the only other power trio that can even be mentioned alongside Rush when we are looking at the raw talent that each individual member generates. While they're legacy wasn't nearly as long, Keith Emerson is daft on keys, Carl Palmer is a one hell of a drummer, and Greg Lake's voice is phenomenal. Add in that Lake was also the bassist, guitarist, lyricist, and producer (produced their first 5 albums) and continue to be impressed. They're sound is incomparable and their style is unmatched by others. They truly were (one of) the best.
In my humble opinion, they are the most talented band of all time. Hands down. They are a rock band built from pure music genius and their album "Pictures at an exhibition" remains the only classical album (I know right?! A rock band! ) to reach the Top 10 charts in the US and the UK. Keith Emerson is the best keyboard/piano/synth player I have ever heard, and the classical pieces he composes (that's right, like with an orchestra) are absolutely beautiful. I love this band.
ELP was the best technical rock band ever in my opinion. They were collectively the best technically on their musical instruments. Was there ever a rock drummer better than Carl Palmer?
Do your research, if we are looking at just plain raw talent ELP has everyone beat. Before Jimi Hendrix Died, he wanted to jam with ELP. Jimi Hendrix!, Also Keith Emerson is known for knowing the moog synthesizer better than moog himself, you look at there songs like tank and toccata, maybe not that pop oriented, but pop rarely has talent.
Okay, they are SO talented their music is so great... WHY ARE ALL THE GOOD COMMENTS ON THEM HAVE TONS OF DISLIKES?! Because they are EXTREMELY talented. Everybody should know that.
Coldplay is whiny bullcrap and none of their music has any talent whatsoever.
Coldplay is simply AMAZING! They are the one of the BEST BANDS of all time and there songs are all meaningful! Many people can relate to their type of songs that they made! I am just inspired by then! They ROCK!
Shut up please! Coldplay is not a talented (skilled) band comparable with guys like DREAM THEATER witch they write individual music for all instruments with ultimate high technique and technology, dark and bright atmosphere. and who says hard rock is not good for brain?! :| that guy is just ignoring some styles with no reason. The effect of every style of art and music depends on every person individually and doesn't have anything with this page! Anyway Coldplay is a very nice melodic & delightful band with also the usage of alternative instruments and developing Piano Rock witch I love them for BUT there are lots of more talented (skilled) bands. best music doesn't necessarily mean skillful music so don't be obsessive for voting them here!V 2 Comments
First heavy metal band ever, should be considered best band ever!.. The heavy bluesyness in there sound melts your soul, in Geezer's lyrics you find yourself, and Ward's jazzy swing never fails... by far, this is the best band of all time.
Black Sabbath is the best they have world greatest guitarist best ever bassist and best ever derumer and vocalists like ronni james dio and ozzy osbourn
Too underrated, this band is literally the most talented band in existence. Although the great vocals may annoy most people, you listen closely and what's that in the background? Oh, only insane 32nd note arpeggios being pulled off by two of the greatest guitarists of our time. With double solos played so clean and perfect like in C'est La Vie, you can't ignore their phenomenal abilities to not make a single mistake in even live performances. Don't forget their incredible bassist showing off in Without Prejudice, or Neal Peart level drumming (if not better) in almost every song played. I've heard many bands, and it's a fact that none can compare to Protest The Hero. But don't forget the technicality. They play with time signatures and polyrhythms badass as Tool, mess with underlying lyric meanings, and make every other complicated aspect of music seem like basic math. They aren't even trying their hardest, look at them in concert swinging their guitarists around while trade-off ...more
Coming from a drummer, Moe Carlson is a far superior drummer to the likes of Neil Peart. As for the rest of the instrumentalists, though I play neither guitar or bass it has to be said that they are very obviously talented. When it comes to the singer, have you heard anyone else with that vocal range who can also scream. In a contest of talent they should easily be top 3 if not number 1. And how someone thinks they are less talented than Coldplay utterly confuses me!
An aspiring metal band out of Ontario that embodies anything intensity could be construed to be. The range of the vocalist is impressive and amazingly flawless performed live, the drummer couldn't possibly make better use of his double bass pedal, and the guitarists pull off intricuit and beautiful parts. There's nothing more demanding than their sound, and they have the off stage personalities to pull it off. They're all around talented kids with an amazing work ethic and over powering stage presence. Not to mention great lyrics.
Underrated band. Crazy guitar and vocals.V 2 Comments
They play two chords, whine, and rap cheesy lyrics why are they on this list.
Linkin Park is the best band ever, period. They are extremely talented and have wide varieties of types of music. Look at Mike Shinoda, he can sing, rap, play guitar, piano, is an artist, and also has many more talents I can't even list. Linkin Park Forever!
Very talented and unique vocalist, but other than that their songs aren't hard to play.
Linkin Park plays a bunch of different styles well. They are all talented. And Chesters voice impossible to compate to anyone else,V 2 Comments
Matt plays drums, piano, guitar and sings amazingly! Such a legend. His piano and guitar playing Is better then his drums though. But his voice actually sounds like a guitar on some songs! So talented.
They compose all their music them self and have done a large variety of music from heavy rock to symphonies, just listen to Isolated system a master piece.
Best live act on planet earth. These guys are not human.
Muse are an amazing and talented band
Best band in the world. Why-
Because as an artist I believe that it's not how fast you play,
How complex a song is. But it's how you fit all the elements together. It's how you deliver the feel or emotion of the song.
Radiohead does it perfectly, track after track, album after album, keep in with the time and trend. Never selling out though, they always bring out unique ways of improvising. Best band in the world.
It is a crime that Radiohead is not in the top ten, if not top five. Their songs are complex, lyrical, and topical.
There is no god damn way they should not be in the top 10.
Why is Coldplay above of Radiohead?V 1 Comment
Definitely up there in talent. Unique sound
I agree with Tool, Rush and Queen being in the top 10, but Syndrome has to be higher than this! They have a lot of talent
Ben and Pat are wicked talented but Ryan sucks no offense Ryan
Ben and pat have loads of talent but Ryan sucks
Glen is better than ryanV 2 Comments
I'm sorry,. I love me some Metallica, but megadeth is so much more talented. Marty Friedman and Dave Mustaine are combined one of the best guitar duos ever. Nick Menza is a beast on drums and David is an excellent bassist. Overall an incredibly talented band. I know Dave isn't a great or even good singer, but he by far makes it up with his ability on the guitar.
Megadeth's riffs and solo's are the most extraordinary things I've ever heard from a band, they also play very fast and Dave Mustaine's lyrics have a lot of meaning. Why are Avenged Sevenfold 3rd? They are mainstream emo posers.
This should be the top, nirvana and coldplay are cool but nothing can compete with the masters of metal
Really 43? So much more talented than matallica. Have you heard Tornado of souls?V 1 Comment
How can U2 be ranked 36? It must be part of top ten.
Hands down, at least at the current moment, they rule all technicality and yet only two of the members have had any sort of formal training in music
When it comes to pure talent it is very hard to beat these guys. I would say they should be up there with dream theater and rush
Amazing! Most talented band today. Much better than most of the bands on this list
In terms of objective technical skill very few people touch these guysV 3 Comments
The way they play off each other is about as good as it gets. As musicians, they meld together better than any band I've ever heard.
All four of them are literally amazing at their instruments. Plus they can improv like no other band in history. They should be so much farther up the list, this is disappointing.
Lol, 62? This list should be called "My Favorite Bands."
A bassist who sings good, plays mind blowing bass solos/riffs, plays bass with teeth, plays guitar and keyboards too, amazing songwriting skills.
A drummer who has very good vocal skills. Also drums good. Plays guitar (both lead and rhythm), including keyboards. Flute, harmonica, sitar, tabla, mandolin, ukulele are just some more instruments he played.
A guitarist, who plays lead guitar along with keyboards.
A guitarist (former), has very good shredding technique. Fast, technical.
saddening that talented got hidden because of a great country that our fat ancestors built. - zxm
Extremely talented vocalist, both Joey and replacement drummer, and guitarist, rest are just ok.
Number 1 in my book!
She has a BEAUTIFUL accent in her voice! Her best song is Dog Days Are over! - Cowy_Gorilla
Kansas not in the top 10? Those dudes are the masters of the progressive rock!
As good a rush or king crimson. Their time changes were extremenly complex.
