Dear Admin, looks like there is a glitch in your website. Pink Floyd mustn't be here at all! Please fix the bug.

Their first couple of albums were magical. Later on however, Pink Floyd 's music became real depressing. I have nothing against Pink Floyd though, their great.

43 Marilyn Manson

His Trilogy will always be his best but his new album "The Pale Emperor" is pretty awesome WAY better than Born Villain. I think Manson is making a comeback - ComaWhite21

Even today he still brings out some pretty good songs and there hasn't been an album by him I haven't enjoyed some aspect of. But nothing since his "trilogy" has ever been as genius.

He just did a song with Gucci Mane two years ago. That just proves how much of a sellout he is.

Definitely looking forward Heaven Upside Down. - PewPewAssassin

44 Panic! at the Disco Panic! at the Disco Panic! at the Disco is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2004 and featuring the current lineup of vocalist Brendon Urie, accompanied on tour by bassist Dallon Weekes, guitarist Kenneth Harris, and drummer Dan Pawlovich.

People change, and as their musical tastes changed, half the band left and things were okay at first. They put out another album (Vices and Virtues), just the two of them, and it was great! Then, they put out their 4th album, which was a rapid transition to pop music. They do have a single or two on the album that is good, but that's about it. I still love them to death, primarily because of their first album ever. Straight out of high school, they put out "A Fever You Can't Sweat Out". This is my favorite album ever. It changed my life, but when their 4th album came out, I was disappointed. Though it wasn't what I wanted to hear from them, I respect their growth and development as an artist. I am still waiting for the day when they go back to their baroque/burlesque/circus themed album. It just mesmerized me.

But can you really blame them I mean literally there is only one remaining original member of the band everyone else are just touring members

They made the most of their situation. They are still good but were much better before

Why are they on here? I actually loved vices and virtues and thought too weird to live is one of the best albums. Death of a bachelor was alright too!

They are bad but they are NOT a rock band

Their first two albums suck, "midnight memories" was ok and "four" was definitely the best one so far. They're not a rock band though & I still don't really like their music lol (although I honestly tried to give them a chance)

They are not a rock band and honestly, they have always been terrible

Who put the gods here? I love them because of their awesome and meaningful songs...They can actually sing though they aren't a rock band... Love you one direction. - zaynmalik2003

46 Cage the Elephant

Their first album was great. Their second album was just okay. Their third album wasn't very good. I don't understand why melophobia gets so much praise, it's not really that great and I think it was their worst album. - Imreallyboredrightnow

I love all of Cage The Elephants albums, and at fist wasn't a big fan of Melephobia, but now I realize what a masterpiece it is.

The first 2 albums were good and then the third album they turned into disco wannabees.

First 4-6 albums were excellent, but with Risk they dug themselves into a ditch it took about ten years to fully recover from, and they came back in a ditch with Super Collider.

48 The Beach Boys The Beach Boys The Beach Boys are an American pop rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

What do you expect without Brian Wilson? - PetSounds

They started to get better then they got worse.

Surf's Up was their last great album.

Nonthreatening, white, upper-class suburbs harmonizing about cars and girls.
P McCartney loved 'em.
Gaggingly sweet.

49 Who

You are totally WRONG!

They definitely went downhill after Quadrophenia.

50 Rascal Flatts
51 Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon is a British rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively ...read more.

Their newest album isn't that bad but a lot of it sounds similar. But I love their older albums.

From kinda dodgy deathcore to some super awesome albums to this. Count your blessings had a few w awesome songs on it. Suicide season and there's a hell were just epic from start to finish. Sempiternal was different but still awesome. Then that's the spirit. Its some cheap attempt at alternative rock and everyone acts as though they love them
They're just boring now

They made a deep dive down the drain.

This band is pure cringe.

52 Skillet Skillet Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

It's actually not that bad and very inspirational. Gotten a little soft over the years so maybe not a rock band anymore but very good. Please remove from list.

I guess its on here because their newer album is not as good as the rest I did not really enjoy Unleashed too much I liked feel invinsible from it and some song I forgot the name of but it did not feel like skillet - TheUltimateNavigator1

53 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.
54 Suicide Silence Suicide Silence Suicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.

Hey they are a Deathcore Band! Why this is in rock band's list!

Guys we can't say they got worse. Mitch died and we can't change that. They tried their hardest to come out of a difficult situation.

1 Word: Doris.

Suicide Silence used to be great until they decided to stay together and replace Mitch after losing him. That was a bull**** move on their side, and now they suck. They used to be really good... Now they don't even compare. RIP Mitch Lucker.

55 Billy Talent Billy Talent Billy Talent is a Canadian rock band from Mississauga, Ontario. They formed in 1993 with Benjamin Kowalewicz as the lead vocalist, Ian D'Sa on guitar, bassist Jon Gallant and drummer Aaron Solowoniuk.
56 Arctic Monkeys Arctic Monkeys The Arctic Monkeys, otherwise known as the Death Ramps, are a British indie rock band formed in 2002 in Sheffield, England. The band consists of Alex Turner (lead vocalist, songwriter, electric and rhythm guitarist), Jamie Cook (electric and rhythm guitarist, songwriter), Matt Helders (percussionist, ...read more.

The Arctic Monkeys truly made art with their first 2 albums. A certain Romance, Brianstorm, Flourecent Adolescence, and Riot Van are some of my personal favorites. Starting on their third effort, however, they lost much of their individuality and starting pumping out all kinds of heartless garbage. They did come out with some ok songs like R you Mine, but even these high points paled in comparison to their hard hitting first works. It really is sad what Alex Turner has done to my favorite band.

Sure Am lost their spark a bit with AM but I think all the other albums were great! suck it and see was fantastic, humbug has bad rep but you can't deny the brilliance of crying lightning and cornerstone, favourite worst nightmare was brilliant but of course the best from them, and my favourite album of all time must be whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not

Since Alex Turner became the cocky airhead that he's today they started going downhill, they were a great band in their early years though.

In my opinion they got better. - KidA

I haven't seen sound garden or godsmack anywhere on list, they are a hell of a lot better than some of bands you listed as best,

Ten was clearly their best work, followed by Vs then Vitalogy, which were their first three albums. Sure they're music took a turn for the worse in 1996 (but they were still amazing), but people always forget how they got better again starting in 2003 with Lost Dogs. - Songsta41

They were a cool grunge band, but they only had one hit album.

They fell off after yield - Sabbath

Regional at best was the best alt hip hop album I've heard and Vessel was great but blurry face is an abomination and a worthless piece that made the band what they criticized a meaningless pop band with little to no artistic value and once I heard heathens(*barfs*) we all know it'll go downhill

I like |-/. I just added this here to troll some people.

60 Simple Plan Simple Plan Simple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

Just compare "Me against the world" and "Save you" and you'll know... - Zab
