The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. ...read more.

Linkin Park, Avenged Sevenfold, Oasis, Nickelback, Green Day, and 30 Seconds to Mars shouldn't be on this list AT ALL. The people who voted those artists are dumb, have no taste in rock music, or either listen to lame Wiz Khalifa or Taylor Gang, and Linkin Park are the most famous. Now, Bieber... He's killing rock and leaving weak rap to the top of the charts. I mean, what?

Why would you learn guitar and drums at 3 then do the music he is doing. One word, FAIL - Tobzz

I'm sorry, but why is McFly on this list? They aren't even a rock band! They're a pop/punk band and they are an amazing group. They've had a Guiness World Record, beating The Beatles with their #1 debut album.

2 Jonas Brothers Jonas Brothers
3 McFly
4 Busted Busted Busted are an English pop rock band from Southend-on-Sea, Essex, consisting of James Bourne, Matt Willis and Charlie Simpson.
5 Kaiser Chiefs Kaiser Chiefs Kaiser Chiefs are an English indie rock band from Leeds who formed in 2000 as Parva, releasing one studio album, 22, in 2003, before renaming and establishing themselves in their current name that same year.
6 Brandon Flowers Brandon Flowers

The Killers are decent, but Brandon Flowers does NOT live up to the music created by The Killers - Tobzz

7 Drake Bell Drake Bell Jared Drake Bell is an American actor, voice actor, and musician. Born in Newport Beach, California, he began his career as an actor in the early 1990s at the age of five with his first televised appearance on Home Improvement.

Now this guy failed for definete. I think the moral of this list is: don't get famous through Disney or Nickelodeon if you want a music career (i.E. Busted, Drake Bell, Jonas Brothers) - Tobzz

8 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.

Hmm, they didn't necessarily fail in music, but there's no doubt they failed at rock. Plus, they're just plain annoying. - Tobzz

Same as Oasis, didn't fail at music, but it was never rock, it was always too cheesy. - Tobzz
