Top Ten Rock Bands In India

The Top Ten

1 Avial (Kerala)

The very best band in the country without any doubt... Avial brings malayalam rock to the highest level possible... Nada nada, aana kallan etc are the best of the lot... You can never stop humming to their tones

Brilliant blending they do.. No indian language based band has their class and calibre! Rex vijayan the lead guitarist and mithun the drummer are the highlights of the band.. Even though I miss anand raj benjamin paul as the lead vocalist, tony has done a fair job in filling his void

Music is awesome... The lead guitarist rocks, the vocal is average... And DJ you deserve a throne dude... Excellent work in the film "SECOND SHOW"! Keep ROCKING AVIAL...

Heard these guys at Royal Enfields Ridermania event in 2019. They were awesome.

2 Indian Ocean (Delhi)

Indian Ocean is very rocking band. The main Rahul Ram is very talented. The album Black Friday is my favorite.
The song Ma Reva... I like it very much.

So... It should take first rank in Indian rock bands.

... Perfect combo of music and authenticity... :-)

Rahul ram for his unique bass grooves...!
Sushmit sen for his magnificent lead..!

I have been in Music world for more than 15 years. With all the experience I have, I will certainly vote Indian Ocean for their amazing Musicianship.

3 Cactus (Kolkata)

A rock band with a soul... Each and every song of this band touches the heart... I guess this is what passion of music does to you... You end up creating music which people eventually end up listening every single day... Their live performance is better than the best... Way to go cactus

There's something magical about this band's music... It's nothing like the regular music you get to hear these days... It's so different- SO good that it can make a person cry in disbelief...Disbelief that such passionate musicians actually exist, that too in India...Amazing

Deserves nothing than number 1. Kick ass tight band. Love you guys. Keep rocking as always...

They are the best... Their lyrics have meaning.. Their music has soulful melody so absent in rock bands these days... And their live shows are a treat

4 Fossils (Kolkata)

Fossils by very far is the best rock back in India... Not parikrama.. Not indian ocean.. Not anyone else... The music and the lyrics, even though shares similarities with iron maiden sometimes, are original and the only sound in india that sounds true rock and roll. Hard rock, heavy rock. If you want soul music and soft rock, there's a separate genre for both. For true rock, fossils is the best rock band in india. And bishakto manush is the best rock song of all time in india.. And fossils debut album, fossils is the best indian rock album of all time.

The band which touched my heart for the very first time is fossile.

Fossils is the best and top band in bengal because their music is so relatable. They literally draw life with the power of sound! For each mood there is a song which can give me some answers and make me feel better!. The lyrics of their songs who touch me inside. Their songs, a way to escape when I'm having a rough time and give me strength. They are next to me if I'm alone. For me FOSSILS are like a best friend and My life...

Man.. This is horrible, who has made this vote.. Did they have any sense about fossils... It is the band whre rock is at its best position in whole country... The pole is incorrect.. They have placed a band in 1st position who had cheated the audience in a live show by playing their records and doing only lip singing on the stage..

5 Parikrama (Delhi)

The best band in India... No more Sonam sherpa(lead Guitarist) R.I.P

Yes, parikrama is the most energetic and very tight band, I ever hard

Without a doubt one of the premier bands of india. Been listening to them since school and they still don't dissapoint.
Awesome vocals, awesome guitars, awesome drums, awesome everything

There is no comparison! The list is all wrong. There are true rock band.

6 Bhayanak Maut (Mumbai)

Laugh out loud why is bhayanak maut on a rock band list


Yep...i heard them and was "brutally" surprised. Good musicians, good solos & the extremely talented Rahul Hariharan.

Its real rock and metal other band in list are like one direction and Justin bieber who are concidered girls band... And this band in band which deserve to be in list.. Its like Metallica, Bullet For My Valentine, trivium, iron maiden... Vote for this band... So Indians will also know what is real music...

7 Sifar (Delhi)

Supercool songs... you can't ignore once you start listening!

Alternative rock band just like nirvana

Very underrated band

Great band. Their songs are like Pakistani bands. That's why they are awesome.

8 Mother Jane (Kerala)

Seriously? A silly bengali band at number 1 (No one understands the language well and anyways I've heard cactus's songs are pale and dumb)? Indian Ocean are just above this beauty of a band because they were instantly popular. Motherjane are the best band to come out of India and have produced the best guitarist of the country, Baiju D'rajan. Their drummer Deepu is awesome as well and Suraj Mani has a good voice. Definitely should have been number 1!

Awesome band.. They rock... The taste of south Indian classical can be seen in their s

Awesome band..
No one can equal the classical style of the lead guitars...
The classical touch that they give to each of their songs is awesome..

Good fusion, good control on musical instruments. Drummer and guitarist is awesome. The classical and western lead fuse very well.

9 Indus Creed (Mumbai)

If there was no Indus Creed (Rock Machine), who knows what Indian Rock scene would have been like. They shot Indian Rock to international fame at a time when rock was mostly unheard in India.

Indus Creed at 16 The people who have been rocking since the 90's Its just stupid
Clearly anyone can call there band a "Rock" band nowadays
List is long whereas there are only a few bands in India who understand and can "attempt" to play rock

The god & conveyor of rock scene in India, n still they aren't rated in top10,! Whats wrong with the voters

Such soulful songs. Listen "Fireflies" to know more what I mean.

10 Lucid Recess (Guwahati)

Awesome three member band... Truly awesome

One of the best bands performing live I have ever seen

They really have a genuine and full sound to their music and no doubt they are one of the best out there who should be higher in the list,if u don't agree then just go to YouTube and listen to one of their songs.

The started good. They got better with each record. Now they are amazing.

The Contenders

11 The Local Train

Literally the best band in the country! Created 2 albums and both of them are just masterpiece.

The best combo of alt rock and rap. The next gen band of India.

Probably the only rebel band EVER!

23 Demonic Resurrection (Mumbai)

They've played in Bloodstock. What are they doing at #28? DESERVES TO BE IN THE TOP 5 at least!

They deserve to be in top 10. Give a try to their songs. Best combination of Blackened Death, symphonic and power metal. The lyrics so amazing I can't describe. Fan following is 94k second highest English band from India beside Skyharbour (Partially Indian). What else is needed?

They shouldn't be so low in the list for sure

A very appreciated death metal band with suevering vocal crashing melodies

24 Delete (Kolkata / Howrah)

These guys are sick! My favourite band from India...gicving a new dimension to rock music.
