One of the best prog bands definitely deserves a higher place than 90! Great band, real talent and still bands like slipknot and RHCC are rated higher... Faith in humanity: -0%

104 All Time Low All Time Low more.
105 Revocation Revocation Revocation is an American technical death metal band from Boston, Massachusetts founded by guitarist and vocalist David Davidson, bassist and vocalist Anthony Buda and drummer Phil Dubois-Coyne in 2000. Originally known as Cryptic Warning, the band changed its name to Revocation in 2006. Revocation more.

They're heavy. They're fast. They're brutal. They deserve to be on this list as much as any other band.

106 Coldplay Coldplay Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist). Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed more.

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!

107 Lamb of God Lamb of God Lamb of God is an American heavy metal band from Richmond, Virginia. Formed in 1994, the group consists of vocalist Randy Blythe, guitarists Mark Morton and Willie Adler, bassist John Campbell, and drummer Chris Adler.

Very talented band definitely deserve to be higher up listen to redneck and you will understand - loverock

108 Versailles

Dream Theater and Rush are very talented but Versailles are more creative with their talents, I think.

Dir en grey are my favourite band and Kyo is without a doubt the greatest vocalist and lyricist that I have at least heard and Shinya and Toshiya are also great but as a band I wouldn't say they are overall the most talented.

Another great band progressive metal band is Myrath for the Dream Theater fans. Oh and I should also say that Galneryus are brilliant and up there with the best.

109 Sade Sade Helen Folasade Adu, known professionally as Sade Adu or simply Sade, is an English singer-songwriter, composer, arranger, and record producer.
110 Temple of the Dog Temple of the Dog Temple of the Dog is an American rock band that formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. It was conceived by vocalist Chris Cornell of Soundgarden as a tribute to his friend, the late Andrew Wood, lead singer of the bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone. The line-up included Stone Gossard on rhythm guitar, more.
111 The Clash The Clash The Clash were an English punk rock band that formed in 1976 as part of the original wave of British punk.

Most talented punk band of all time, full of influential lyrics, and a rebellious attitude.

112 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

If you think 1D beats FOB, Phish, Pearl Jam on this list you sorely misunderstand what talent and music are. 1D is not talent. There are five of them up there with the possibility of harmonizing or counterpointing the lead, yet only one sings at a time. Useless. Of course it wouldn't be so bad if their voices were better than mere mediocrity. 1D is a celebrity, not a talent. Don't make the mistake of confusing the two. Please.

What are these untalented idiots doing on this list?

Why would anyone put this "band" on a list of anything good. 1D blows. Period.

How did this band even make it to this spot on the list or any list pertaining to talented music?! - loverock

113 The Yardbirds The Yardbirds The Yardbirds are an English rock band formed in London in 1963 that had a string of hits during the mid-1960s, including "For Your Love", "Heart Full of Soul" and "Over Under Sideways Down".
114 Corelia

An amazing proggressive metal band. They're not the best but every aspect of the band is amazing and well thought out. It's a shame that they aren't very well known.

116 The Ramones The Ramones The Ramones were an American punk rock band that formed in the New York City neighborhood of Forest Hills, Queens, in 1974. They are often cited as the first band to define the punk rock sound.
117 The Casualties
118 The Exploited

I love The Exploited, but I'm not sure the belong on this list. If you want really talented punk-bands than I'd rather consider The Clash, The Damned, Angelic Upstarts, Dead Kennedys and Slime. And obviously, T.V. smith!
