The Top Ten
1 1974 AD

Formed in early 90s 1974 A. D is to the date most popular band in history in Nepal. Backed by two vocalist (Firoj is no longer the member), 1974 A. D are successful in many genres such as blues, rock n roll, jazz, funk, folk, metal, hard rock. 1974 A. D is household name in Nepali music industry and no band has yet born to win that crown from 1974 A.D.

Love the way they combine several genres of music into one sweet tone. They make the best use of bass and folk in the form of rock as well as Jazz.

I think the sound view of each musical instrument and singer is well managed thatswhy I recommend this to be the best one ever.

2 Nepathya

Nepathya is no wonder true rocker of Nepali folk tunes. It has made a history of being only Nepali band to perform on biggest international vanues. Definitely its gonna take a long time to reach and go beyond that level for other Nepali musical groups. Considering its musical heights it has created Nepathya is number 1 no doubt.

Listen to their folk melodies into new, youth-friendly pop and rock tune and you will immediately love this band. Amrit Gurung is true rocker and the most respected figure in Nepali music. One of the oldest band of Nepal nepathya are too good for any age or genres.

3 The Edge The Edge is an Irish rock band formed in Dublin in the 1980s. Not to be confused with the guitarist from U2, this group has garnered a following for their straightforward rock'n'roll approach. Characterized by driving guitar riffs and anthemic choruses, their music has a classic rock feel. The Edge... read more

Just listen to the great vocals of jeewan gurung. That man is one of the greatest vocalist of whole world. The edge are so good that I can listen to their songs continuously for whole week.

I'm not nepali... But my girlfriend is a nepali girl...
For her only I listn nepali song...

This band is her all time favorite...

And I too love the songs speacilly the Romantic love songs...

I found this band bit late, the music is very soothing and lyrics just compliments it. Love your voice Jeewan. All the best guys!

4 Albatross

Should be higher for these reasons as follows.

+ Lyrically diverse, unlike all those bands having the trend for love songs and love songs only sounding lyrically dumb albatross's lyrics are out the box, rad, different, and they use sarcasm in a good way, to which we can relate our daily lifestyle to. the base notes.

+ The uses of guitar effects and techniques man, including the wah wah man. though sunny manandhar is not "the best guitarist of the country", he does have plenty of techniques and tricks in his bag which does not fail to impress.

+ The only band which makes you love your language more by their lyrics... don't get me wrong here. Its true, feel it :D

+ The only band which is equally appreciated both in underground and mainstream scene in Nepal which is damn hard thing to achieve if your getting what I mean here. (Y)

+ Having the most diverse songs covering metal, slow rock, rock ballads, funk, hard rock, progressive rock and nailing em all.

+ At last, for me, only albatross have that feel of a "BAND" a proper band.. chemistry.. and their endurance as a band.. As we are speaking of bands here not some commercial mastermind money oriented mainstream record companies.

5 Cobweb Cobweb is a Nepali rock band that originated in the early 1990s. They are considered pioneers in the Nepali rock and metal scene. Known for their high-energy performances, the band has a loyal fan base both in Nepal and among Nepali communities worldwide. Cobweb's music often tackles social and political... read more

The credit of popularity of rock music in Nepal goes to Cob web. and after decades of formation they are still rocking Nepal!

They are the best rock band ever from nepal and they had been playing only rock genre for 28 years.

They are not Pure Nepali Rock Band they are from Darjeeling India and Mantra is Indian Nepali Rock Band but I love they music & Lyrics much more.

Mantra band is my favourite band in Nepal. Keep doing the change and improvement in Nepali pop and rock songs.

7 The Axe

This band has only three members but my god they are so good in music.

8 The Shadows

The Shadows is best for the vocal and rock music which is different of other Nepali band. and personalist is the best for there music video. every is good the shadows band is top 5 band in Nepal

Probably The best nepali band right now at present.

The rock band of neppal it always talks about the nature, reliogious, country etc...

9 Dying Out Flame

Aabbeg gautam is best vocalist I have ever seen. He played bass too.
They are really worthful to see.

10 Uglyz

Really? Is uglyz among the top 10 band in Nepal? May be top 10 gay band of Nepal

I still remember the frist time I saw them on was revolution and history was made

The Contenders
11 Robin N Looza / Robin N New Revolution

Leading rock band with a unique Nepali voice, the best attitude in live performances, mind-blowing lyrics, and superb music. Without this band in concerts/live performances, fans of rock music feel a lack of a good entertainer, a lack of the attitude needed for any musical artist in live performance, and a lack of something that a live music performer is supposed to have. Therefore, Robin N The New Revolution has been a legendary figure in Nepali rock 'n' roll musical history.

Ultimate vocals and music. This band can compete many international bands and has potential to win people hearts around world. Just requires quality recording studio and video for each song. Keep it Up Robin Dai

12 The Vibez

They are the best! True words from true hearts. Trying to save our we all should be proud of them. Trying to save our culture and introduce us among thousands of others. Good job guys!

Best band in the Bay Area. Best band in nepal. Love every songs from the first album. Patiently waiting for the second one. Hurry up..

Very mature music. Despite being from the US, they sing Nepali song in Nepali way. No fake western accents in their songs.

13 C.O.D

How come Call of Duty is a band? But great stuff from creator of this list @alish8gerrard. Thumbs up to you! Long Live Nepali Music.

Call of Duty is the best among all!

It should do something more like before but more energetic which can bring it back to its place

14 Kutumba

Having come together for the preservation of their culture and art, Kutumba wishes to spread love and joy of Nepali folk music throughout the world. GODS!

How is this below Anuprastha, Asthma, Ugly?

Great band Great live experience.

15 Kandara

Just can't forget this band and its songs... Looking forward for upcoming songs and I know its's impossible too to listen him once again.. Missing this band badly.

Songs of Kanadara gives a nostalgic feeling. I can relive memoirs of Pokhara again and again.

16 Mukti N Revival

The heavy weight in blues genre in Nepal.

Love their songs and guitar skill.

Mukti I love their ong lyrics, vocal and music they are too good

17 Anuprastha

I guess this band deserves to be in top 10. I mean the muisc of this band is absolutely amazing.

Anuprastha is 1 of the rocking band in Nepal...

I love this band because it's musics and lyrics are good, better and the best than any other else

18 Astha

Astha...spread boulevard of Hopes and Dreams for Nepali Music within a short period of Time...Consistency could lead astha to legendry...still can heard their songs...millions fans!

Astha You are Really Great singer in Nepali rock band because you are the Layla but you are doing really hard work in band. I love it your voice and songs composed also.

I honestly consider astha as one of the worst artist in Nepali music with no pure music no good vocal. They are just making bad love song and airing on T.V. because they might have money n good contacts

19 Antim Grahan
20 Abhaya N the Steam Injuns
21 Jindabaad

I mean seriously 17th? Jindabaad is undoubtedly much better then so many of them above. Maybe we don't have proper audiences. Pity!

Jindabaad Rocks! I have seen them live and believe me they are EPIC. Rewind is the rock anthem of Nepal.

Best out of new ones. Young and experimental.
