The Contenders: Page 2

21 AC/DC AC/DC AC/DC are a Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm's illness and departure in 2014. They were fronted by Bon Scott until his untimely death due to alcohol poisoning in 1980, after which they hired Brian Johnson to more.

For example - Highway to Hell has been called one of the greatest riffs of all time. But no one ever noticed All Right Now of Free's. both of these riffs sound very similar. Then why one should always get the praise while other one is totally unnoticed. - zxm

22 BABYMETAL BABYMETAL Babymetal is a Japanese metal idol band. Their line-up consists of Suzuka Nakamoto as "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal".

23 Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse is a American death metal band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1988 . The band is known for their graphic album covers, explicitly violent lyrics and song titles like "I C** Blood" The group got into mainstream after performing the song "Hammer Smashed Face" in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: more.

Fanbase is filled with metal elitists who claim they're "real metal". If "real" metal has vocals and lyrics like CC, "real" metal must suck. Their instrumentals are great, but the vocals ruin it for me. They are a not even close to as good as metal elitists say they are. - NikBrusk

24 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois . The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren . They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .

27 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.
28 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

A case where the overhyping ruins the band. On their own, they're perfectly fine but due to the endless overpraising by both critics and fans, it has become nearly impossible to listen to this band without all the baggage of how you either must love them or don't appreciate real music or something like that. - Mrveteran

29 Muse Muse Muse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including five MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, more.

Musical theater overkill! Which can be a novelty at first, but ultimately irritating to say the least. Is it Rock or a number from a stage production of The Phantom of the Opera?! Every time the singer takes a breath, it sounds as though a surprise nut squeeze from a stranger occurred (and he has the bad habit of constantly taking loud breaths on mic). Nothing wrong with being a queen but even Ethel Merman would be incited to suggest that Matt Bellamy tone it down once in a while.

30 Guns N' Roses Guns N' Roses Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1985. The classic lineup, as signed to Geffen Records in 1986, consisted of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. Apart from hard rock they are also more.

I don't even know why they are called the greatest hard rock band of all time, that role belongs to AC/DC with Zeppelin not too far behind. Axl may have a large range but he's hardely a great singer. Slash is the most overrated guitarist of all time too, the tone of his guitar in Sweet Child O Mine shouldn't even be a thing, and yet that riff is called one of the greatest? - BrianScott01

31 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.
