28 Boston Boston Boston is an American rock band from Boston, Massachusetts, that achieved their most notable successes during the 1970s and 1980s.

It was 1976, you wouldn't turn on a radio with out hearing Boston. Though they didn't last long, Boston is a staple for classic rock. Tom Scholz's guitar tones mixed with Brad Delp's highly underrated voice, it was great.

Best band ever! Most of the modern musicians compose songs which are senseless. At least the songs of Linkin Park make sense. An amazing band, with good music and lyrics, they really do ROCK the world! Way to go LP!

This list is for most talented bands, why are they here?

What is Linkin Park doing here?

Linkin Park should be number one like come on I love them <3 Linkin Park 4 ever!

Les Claypool is regarded as one of the best bassists of all time for his slap-bass ability in notable songs like "My Name Is Mud", "The Toys more.

Les Claypool's amazing funk bass playing is extremely underrated. He is 100x better than Flea, but goes unrecognized. It makes me sad. Great band, very creative. Deserves more credit for their talent. - HardRockSam

Disagree they must higher - Jancukman777

36 Dream Theater Dream Theater Dream Theater is an American progressive metal band. The band was formed in 1985 under the name of "Majesty", but had to change its name to Dream Theater later. more.

No doubt if you're voting based on pure technical talent, in my humble opinion Dream Theater has the best lead guitarist in John Petrucci, drummer in Mike Portnoy (now Mike Mangini) Bass with John Myung and keyboards and synthesizer with Jordan Rudess and incredible front man for vocals with James LaBrie. I've been a drummer most of my life, and I have never seen any band play with such precision as these guys! Portnoy is hands down my favorite drummer of all time. I can copy almost any drummer such as the likes of Neil Peart and many others, but trying to play Mike Portnoys stuff is a whole other level! I love watching this band play together in concert! Just unbelievable...

Take zeppelin over rush all day, however you rate it this is where it leads!

When you have two freak a nature on drums and guitar nothing can go wrong

If this list is for the most talented band, DT should be wayy higher than this

Mike and Billie are both amazing at the guitar and singing, And they have decade defiling songs like 21 guns, American idiot, boulevard of broken dreams, basket case, and time of your life and much more. Green Day is the best at what they do so that is why they should be in the top ten.

No. 30? This list was impressive except this flaw
