121 Saint Asonia Saint Asonia Saint Asonia is a Canadian rock band consisting of former Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier, Mike Mushok, Corey Lowery, and Rich Beddoe.
122 The Kinks The Kinks The Kinks were an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1963 by brothers Dave and Ray Davies.

A very special band and one that seems to be overlooked. They were at the forefront of the British Invasion with The Beatles, The Stones and The Who, yet they seem so unique. The singer/songwriter (Ray Davies) is a great humored genius with an addicting voice. The drummer is always solid and well timed. The bass is (maybe a bit shy) soft when you want and strong when needed. Finally, the guitarist is very talented and is obvious in their more complex compositions. Just start with their first album, if you aren't into 60s Pop Rock n Roll then skip to Village Green Preservation Society (easily one of the best albums ever). You'll be hooked.

I feel like The Kinks were made from this list because they NEVER EVEN GOT NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY, have been around from the early 60's to the early 90's (3 decades), have been banned from playing in the United States, and have an amazing sound that is unique! I have to say that The Kinks are one of my favorite bands of all time because their sound is so perfect (In my opinion)! - TheThomasThomas

They are simply amazing - You Really Got Me, All Day and All of the Night, Tired of Waiting For You, 'Til the End of the Day, Lola, Everybody's Gonna Be Happy, and BEST OF ALL... 'Waterloo Sunset'! There are so many more brilliant hits that aren't on this list. Please go check out the Kinks because it will be worth the time - I promise!

How is Queen underrated? Bohemian Rhapsody is definitely the most overrated song of all time. Songs like Lola, All day and All night and You really got me are all amazing songs by the Kinks, worthy of the Beatles,

125 Deftones Deftones Deftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

Deftones have undergone an enormous evolution over 20 years, yet through their entire career they have kept up a very original and distinctive sound.

One of the greatest bands of all the time, very creative

126 Wings

Wings was an amazing band. The entire album Band on the Run is a masterpiece. Paul and wings have a lot of great songs: Silly Love Songs, Juniors Farm, Sally G,Letting Go...

I think it is not given enough value because it is compared with the Beatles, and they are two totally different bands: /

They made the best rock/pop music of 70s and had many hit albums and singles and were a HUGE influence on pop music but unfortunately they are hardly ever played on radio and are only rarely remembered because of Paul McCartney (co-founder of the legendary Beatles)

127 Matchbox Twenty

All of their songs are amazingly good!

139 Pulp

When I discuss music with my friends and the topic of britpop comes up, I'll hear either oasis or blur are the best, but pulp are honestly in my opinion the best britpop act, there's more to them than just common people

140 Joy Division Joy Division Joy Division were an English rock band formed in 1976 in Salford, Greater Manchester. Originally named Warsaw, the band consisted of singer Ian Curtis, guitarist and keyboardist Bernard Sumner, bassist Peter Hook, and drummer Stephen Morris.

If Ian wouldn't have gone in his inner depression, the band would've kept on going with him, and would have become an international icon. And wouldn't be part of this list. I say so because Joy Division's two actual albums and singles Love Will Tear us Apart, Dead Souls and ATMOSPHERE are all soaring masterpieces.
ps- RIP Ian, you sweet soul. - PinkflASHES
