Best Pakistani Bands

The Top Ten
1 Junoon

No doubt they were the best Sufi rock band of their time. They also gained international success with their unforgettable music.

The best band Pakistan has produced. Great music, a great vocalist in Ali Azmat, and very versatile. It's a real shame they did not remain together.

2 Strings

I believe Strings is the most famous and influential band in contemporary times. Strings is representing Pakistan internationally, unlike Noori and Fuzon. Junoon and Vital Signs are disbanded now, so Strings should be at the top of the list according to my perspective.

After the departure of groups like Vital Signs and Nazia and Zoheb, and with Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan actively promoting Qawwali music and Junoon promoting rock music, Strings approached their music with a tint of Pakistani pop and classical music combined with rhythms from stringed instruments.

3 Jal

I don't know why Jal is not ranked first on this site. Jal is the most amazing band. The interesting part is that their first song Aadat rocked not only in Pakistan but also in neighboring India. The band received great love from Indian fans, which is an honor for Jal and Pakistan. Atif rocks.

No band is like Jal. All songs of Jal are very heart-touching, especially those sung by Farhan Saeed.

I love their lyrics. And all of their songs touched my heart.

4 Fuzon

The Fuzon art insists on setting feelings above mere technique and creating an individualistic genre of mold-breaking music. Above everything else, Fuzon is stylistically different.

Fuzon is special. Awesome music and terrific singing, especially in the first album. Super!

You will love the moment you hear it.

5 Vital Signs The Vital Signs were a Pakistan pop and rock band formed in Rawalpindi in 1986. Since their formation, they became Pakistan's first and most commercially successful as well as critically acclaimed act.

One of the major music groups of Pakistan. You should check their tracks!

By far the best musicians in my humble opinion. Evergreen songs!

Should be on top! Junoon was a child of Vital Signs. Legendary music artists ever. Brian, Salman Ahmed, Junaid Jamshed, and Rohail Hyatt. What a class.

6 Noori

How is Noori ranked 6th? Noori is an amazing rock band. Also, Manwa Re and Ooncha have to be the most underappreciated songs of all time. Their lyrics are jaw-dropping. The rest of their songs are also excellent. Ali Noor is a fantastic lyricist and guitarist. He is better than James Hetfield of Metallica for me.

Noori has the best music. Even in this age and time, it is still trendy. Noori is unfortunately underrated by recent generations. People haven't discovered Noori's old albums like Suno Ke Main Hun Jawan, Peeli Patti Aur Raja Jaani Ki Gol Dunya, and Begum Gul Bakaoli Sarfarosh.

Their music has become lost. Just listen to it once and you'll know its worth.

7 Call

Call is the greatest rock band of Pakistan. Call and EP are the real rock bands. Other Pakistani bands are rock-pop bands.

A good rock band with average qualities.

My favorite band! Xulfi's guitars, Waqar's drums, awesome deep lyrics (in Jilawatan), and to top it all off, Junaid's unique voice and heartfelt singing. Best ever.

8 Entity Paradigm

Entity Paradigm is better known for their live performances and different elements in music like rapcore, which was never made before in Pakistan. This band tried hard but could be better like Linkin Park.

EP should easily be number 1. They are a pioneering band with incredible music and music videos for their time. Such music has never been created again in the Indian Subcontinent. I doubt there will ever be another band that can replicate what EP did! True Irtiqa in Hindi rock and metal.

9 Roxen

They are better than the other bands with great vocalists and guitarists.

Awesome first album. Can't wait for the second. Has the best vocals among all the bands.

Very good first album. I wish there were more from this band. Easily better than Junoon, Vital Signs, etc.

10 Nazia & Zoheb

They revolutionized pop music in Pakistan. You should check their songs and albums. They performed for a short time but reached the peak. They are the ABBA of Pakistan.

They were the best of their time. High-class performers.

The Contenders
11 Awaz

Awaz modernized the music scene and experimented with new music when Vital Signs was all you would hear. Awaz breathed fresh air into the music scene and their videos are unforgettable. The band was one of the very few bands at that time who used their music to raise their voices against corrupt politicians.

The band's skill at composing and producing was often overlooked, and the focus was on their good looks and glossy videos. Overall, Awaz is an average band.

12 A-meet
13 Mekaal Hasan Band

Classical rock band with quality music. Thumbs up to them!

14 Kaavish

Pure blend of semi-classic and folk genre in the modern era.

15 Mafia
16 Qayaas

Among the new bands, Qayaas is really good. I see them going up the rankings as more people hear them.

17 Soch
18 Raeth Band
19 Karavan
20 Aaroh
21 The Milestones

One of the leading bands of the 90s era, The Milestones produced some unforgettable rock hits. Candy Pereira, Ali Tim, and Zayad Gulzar were no doubt among the best musicians of their time!

22 Sawal
23 Bayaan
24 Beygairat Brigade
25 The Sufis
