61 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.

62 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.

63 DragonForce DragonForce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

Gotta love some power metal! Extremely talented band

No talent here. Just pointless shredding.

extremely talented but repetitive - moose4life19

Fighting to keep rock & roll around today with incredible music

This band is insanely talented both instrumentally and vocally. Just listen to let it die or something from nothing. This band deserves to be at least in the top ten. - loverock

65 Jethro Tull Jethro Tull Jethro Tull were a British rock group, formed in Luton, Bedfordshire, in December 1967. Initially playing blues rock, the band soon developed its sound to incorporate elements of British folk music and hard rock to forge a progressive rock signature.

Drummer Matt Greiner is one of the best ever and this band has done so many unbelievable things with the guitar.

Definitely most talented band!
Not only the drummer, also the guitarwork is incredibly amazing! Their compositions are complex, have much diversity and are very creative! - Flav

68 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!

Meshuggah's line-up consists of founding members vocalist Jens Kidman and lead guitarist Fredrik Thordendal, drummer Tomas Haake, who joined in 1990, rhythm guitarist Mårten ...read more.

What? Why is meshuggah here when they should be in top 10?!? I have played guitar and drums more than 10 years now and meshuggah's bleed is still hardest and most complex song I know and after years of practice I still can't do it... I've seen them play live and I have never in my life seen anyone play so complex stuff with such precision. I read that one time when meshuggah was in a band competition they won just by being silent for almost a minute and then suddenly they all started playing at the exact same time without a single eye contact or any marked sound. That shows real talent.

I vote for Meshuggah. They are so talented I wonder if they are even human at all. Nobody on Earth can play music the way they do.

They deserves to be in this list

70 Death Death Death was an American Death Metal band formed in 1983 by Chuck Schuldiner.

73 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

Deserves to be in the top 10! Come on guys, whats wrong?!

It's all about Gavin Harrison here!

74 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

I now have AIDS because of the person who put one direction on this list. I mean, really? Coheed and Cambria are just amazing. A whole variety of differant music styles. Not many of their song's lyrics will make sense if you don't understand the story, because the lead singer and rhythm guitarist, Claudio Sanchez, also has a comic book series called the 'amory wars'. He bases all the lyrics on that story. This just proves that they show emotion in their work. If you're still not convinced, just search for 'Coheed and Cambria: The Running Free'. Do the world a HUGE favor and just don't try and compare one direction to the word talent. You're just wasting everyone's time, including your own.

75 Cream Cream Cream were a 1960s British rock supergroup power trio consisting of bassist/singer Jack Bruce, drummer Ginger Baker, and guitarist/singer Eric Clapton.

77 Novecento

80 Pearl Jam Pearl Jam Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. ...read more.

Wait... what Pearl Jam has Eddie vedder? That alone should get them in the top 25! However, the band also has creative guitar riffs and a powerful drummer.

Eddie vedder, rest are good but not great.

Pearl Jam is listed as 23 in Rolling Stone's best performances live. "They are one of the only bands that can change their setlists inside out overnight," -PJ Manager

EDDIE VEDDER IS AMAZING
