All members of Van Halen are very talented. Eddie is considered to be the greatest and most influential guitar player since Hendrix. David Lee Roth is one of the best frontmen in rock. Alex is an excellent drummer. You can't get more talented than the mighty =/-/=

This band is amazing, don't forget Michael Anthony the best back up vocalist of all time.. deserves top 5.. and eddies the best bands down

All I have to say is Erruption, and hot for teacher

Even though I'm completely fine with rush at the top :)
Van halen needs to be at least in the top ten with Eddie, Alex and Dave
They are better than most of the bands on this list (besides rush)

42 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture ...read more.

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,

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

45 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

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?

47 Megadeth Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. The group was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine's dismissal from Metallica. They have released 15 studio albums, and their biggest hits are Symphony of Destruction, Holy ...read more.

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?

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 ryan

50 Between the Buried and Me Between the Buried and Me Between the Buried and Me is an American progressive metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina. Formed in 2000, the band consists of Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr.

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 guys

51 Phish Phish Phish is a band known for musical improvisation, extended jams, blending of genres, and dedicated fan base.

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."

52 Guns N' Roses Guns N' Roses Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1985.

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

55 Kansas Kansas Kansas is an American rock band that became popular in the 1970s initially on album-oriented rock charts and later with hit singles such as "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Dust in the Wind".

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.

56 Gentle Giant Gentle Giant Gentle Giant were a British progressive rock band active between 1970 and 1980. The band was known for the complexity and sophistication of its music and for the varied musical skills of its members.

This should be in the top 5...just listen to the Free Hand album, the band is ridiculously tight through many very complex songs

The only reason this band isn't #1 is because nobody knows they exist at all.

It's the most complex rock band of all time!

Extremely talented vocalist, both Joey and replacement drummer, and guitarist, rest are just ok.

Number 1 in my book!
