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.

88 Lifehouse Lifehouse
89 Dir en Grey Dir en Grey DIR EN GREY is a Japanese metal band formed in 1997 and currently signed to Firewall Div., a sub-division of Free-Will.

Amazing group; Kyo's voice is insane, having a huge vocal range, and both guitarists are extremely proficient. Toshiya, the bass player, is one of the best in Japan, and Shinya is a very good drummer. Not the most talented in the world, but definitely worthy of the Top 15.

90 Alice Cooper Alice Cooper Alice Cooper was an American rock band formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 1964. The band consisted of lead singer Vince Furnier, Glen Buxton, Michael Bruce, Dennis Dunaway, and Neal Smith.

Singer and theatrical rock legend Alice Cooper's original band was one of the most underrated and talented bands ever. Featuring Alice on vocals, the original Alice Cooper band (he officially went solo in 1975 and had had plenty of other talented bands), were probably the most musically gifted. Neil Smith played the drums almost like a spider. The guitarist were Glen Buxton and Michael Bruce (Bruce was also a good songwriter), and Dennis Dunaway is one of the greatest bassist ever and also a great songwriter.

Alice Cooper is awesome! He has a great voice, kickass music, and he's a showman! He uses everything from snakes to baby dolls to straitjackets, etc. His concerts are super cool and interesting. I saw him in concert once and I was practically blown away! I'm so glad I didn't miss it. Alice Cooper really is one of the best singers/musicians that ever lived. He's a legend!

91 Fun. Fun. Fun is an American indie pop band based in New York City. It was formed by Nate Ruess, former lead singer of The Format, with Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train.

Fun. Is a seriously talented band. All you need to do is look past "We Are Young, " and it's really easy to see their outstanding talent. In my opinion, they beat Coldplay - easily. Nate Reuss is a very, /very/ good singer and songwriter, and I think he honestly puts them up with The Beatles. I mean that with all my heart.

92 Foreigner Foreigner Foreigner is a British-American hard rock band, originally formed in New York City in 1976 by veteran English musician Mick Jones and fellow Briton and ex-King Crimson member Ian McDonald along with American vocalist Lou Gramm.

Foreigner is universally hailed as one of the most popular rock acts in the world, racking up scores of smash hits, multi-platinum albums, and sold out concert tours.

From Cold As Ice to Hot Blooded, Urgent to Jukebox Hero, Waiting For A Girl Like You to the chart topper I Want To Know What Love is, Foreigner's thrilling mix of blustery blues and impeccably crafted pop continues to captivate generation after generation of music fans.

Today, over 70 million albums later, Foreigner is an ensemble of talented musicians each adding their individual credentials to the mix to make the band stronger and more powerful than ever.
