42 Chevelle Chevelle Chevelle is an American rock band that formed in 1995 in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Illinois. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler, Sam Loeffler and Joe Loeffler.

Chevelle should be in the top 5, because this is a band that really grown into their own. They can make any type of songs like very heavy rock songs like the clincher, thought provoking ballads like In debt to the Earth, panic prone.

Ever since their debut album they immediately made a impact. What separate them from the alternative metal sound is their lyrics. They do not settle for cliche subjects like heartbreak, breakups and love. They composed songs about social problems, conspiracy theories. Pete is a genius with metaphors. They are not afraid to experiment but also stay with those classic songs. Chevelle is definitely a band that can rock out with the best of them.

I'm going to get some dislikes for this comment, but in my opinion, their new music is actually a lot more creative and deeper than their old music. But don't get me wrong, I enjoy both their new and old stuff. Even pop punk bands mature.

They've drastically improved throughout every album. Stump's voice is amazing!

Not getting better over time, DM (2008) was their first really good album since the black album (1991), and that wasn't nearly as good as ride the lightning (1984). Metallica is a classic, their one good recent album doesn't mean they're necessarily improving - Songsta41

This band is one of the most succesaful!

Yes but remember the cuestion, is Metallica gettiing better with the years! Nnno you retards they become lazy and famous and no more albums like ride the lightning or master of puppets

59 Deftones Deftones Deftones are an American alternative metal band from Sacramento, California. The band, which was founded in 1988, consists of Chino Moreno, Stephen Carpenter, Frank Delgado, Abe Cunningham and Sergio Vega.

They've come a long way from their nu metal roots, coming from Adrenaline to alternative metal masterpieces, Diamond Eyes and Koi No Yokan. And they've never released a bad album.

Going from an average at best band, with albums like Around the Fur and Adrenaline, then evolving into one of the best alternative/post metal bands around with White Pony and Diamond Eyes.

Diamond eyes is probably one of my favorite albums of all time.

60 DragonForce DragonForce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

They've improved so much, especially with their new singer Marc Hudson
