Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 10
Easily one of the best rock bands of my generation
I love them. There lyrics are deep. I cannot imagine how sorry Scott Stapp feels about the break. I am happy they are back together. They actually look happy to be on stage today.
221? Seriously! Creed helped define 90's rock, and make it something worth remembering! They had three albums out, with more than enough great songs there, and made a fourth almost a decade later for the hell of it.
One of the best bands...from its writing to its composition...a brilliant set of people...come on guys...songs like With Arms Wide Open,My Sacrifice,Higher,My Own Prison,One last breath...have been anthems...they have sold about a heavy 40 million records...a grammy winner for the best Rock Song...which even many bands prior to this have failed to achieve...musically they are among the best...it doesn't matter what this website tells...V 10 Comments
Ascendency is the best metal album I've ever heard. need to be up there in the top 25 atleast. Matt and Corey are two of the 20 best guitarists alive today in my opinion. Paolo plays bass like nothing I've ever heard, and Travis is just hands down the best metal drummer - mike2fristick
I was starting to think that Trivium wasn't on here. Avenged Sevenfold sucks and comparing them to Trivium is like asking if a lion can kill a cat. - Trivium
This is so badwhy trivium in this list they should be in top 20, they have the best metal songs ever they are nu-Metallica.. A7X are nothing they are a normal band but trivium a perfect metal band I've never seen in my hole life
Trivium get such a bad rap, and I don't understand why... these guys are great!V 3 Comments
One of the greatest pop-rock bands of all time. Rosanna and hold the line are classic rock songs!
30-years this year, since Hold the Line, and still just getting better and better
So underrated! Toto was really my introduction to thinking a band was cool. For that, I will always be thankful.
Not my favorite but it deserves WAY more than this. - KingofSnails42V 6 Comments
What can I say... They have arguably one of the greatest songwriters in existence, one whom I personally would put next to the likes of Edgar Allan Poe and William Shakespeare (Sing what you can't say, forget what you can't play/hasten to drown into beautiful eyes/walk within my poetry, this dying music/my loveletter to nobody; Beneath the candlebed/Two saddened angles, in heaven, in death... One light for each undeserved tear... Beneath the candlebed/Two souls with everything yet to be said). Their guitarist, unlike most others in traditional rock bands you see all over the place right now, actually knows how to play his instrument, and despite being more of a melodic/rhythm guitarist who plays alongside keyboards he sure knows how to shred when he wants to! The keyboardist himself (who is also the main songwriter) plays pretty much everything in concert - the piano, the keyboards, and the orchestra, and despite being more of a metal band, because of those aspects, they've created ...more
I absolutely refuse to believe Nightwish is not #1. Every in the band is possibly the most talented person that plays the instruments (For example, Emppu on the guitars and Tuomas on the keyboards) and the three singers they have had are all amazing in their own ways. Tarja was trained in opera, Anette was the classic metal singer, and Floor's voice fits with Nightwish's music so well it's astonishing. The heavy metal combined with the orchestra truly makes for a beautiful sound. The lyrics are so deep half of them I can't understand, and I write songs exactly like Tuomas's. Nightwish is the most talented band in the world, there's no doubt about that. Their song The Poet and the Pendulum was the one that got me hooked. I heard it when I was just six years old and it blew me away. I've been a true and dedicated fan ever since. I don't speak Finnish, but I love Nightwish so much I've learned how to sing those songs. I know every lyric to every song, and I never get tired of listening ...more
The music is just amazing and the singer makes it all the best!
Songwriting, music, vocals, live performences...at best there can be!V 8 Comments
The vocals take some time to get used to but you get to realize that it fits the type of music.
The band is great and I recommend because they are quite talented and they are underrated.
They tell a story with their music, literally. The lead singer writes comics so you can read his books and then understand or almost predict what is coming next.

Why Coheed and Cambria isn't in the top 50.
I think that coheed really makes it to top 50 at least. Know why? Because they have a natural talent
and then they have a great song.
"Welcome Home" is one of the greatest song that I've heard.
One of the most greatest bands of all time.
Hell of nice guys.
Amazing bass lines and guitar riffs.
Perfect vocals and drum beats.
I don't understand why they're not on here.
Best bandV 1 Comment
For sure in the top 3 bands post 2000. Their songs such as Blurry, Control, Psycho, Never Change, Basement, just to name a few, are great. Come Clean, Famous, and Life on Display are all good albums (especially Cone Clean). Unfortunately for us fans, Wes Scantlin has been going a little wack lately, but none the less while it lasted it was pretty great. Hopefully Wes gets his self together and they can lay down some more tracks!
This band isn't very good at all
I like one song very much
Best band out there... too low in this list.. asking Alexandria is above them what the hell
In simple words, they make music for the soul. Music that describes your feeling to a perfect T. They're relatively new but they're so so so so awesome. SHAKE IT OUT and NEVER LET ME GO are such amazingly and deeply beautiful songsV 2 Comments
Lacuna coil are amazing! They have a mix of male and female voices with some amazing drums and guitar! There song's are very catchy and the music videos are so cool
This band is fantastic, and I have no idea why they aren't high up on the list. Great sound, great band, great everything.V 1 Comment
First three albums are undying classics. NOT a one hit wonder - music of epic emotional sweep and power. Like the other poster said, songs that always stir and stay in your heart. Thanks Stuart.
Still love Big Country ; music that never gets old and is untainted by irony or cynicism. Power in the best sense.
Stuart Adamson is the U.K. S response to jimi Hendrix said John Peel. He is just simply amazing. This is for the best bands not the most popular and Big Country certainly is the best. With albums the crossing, steeltown and the seer they revolutionized, at least, the way I listen to and like Rock music. Bassist Tony Butler and Mark Brezicki are just as good, and the best in my opinion. And bruce is all around cool. This band may never be in the top 100 but they will always number one in my and many others hearts.
Best Scottish bands ( for me ) : #3 Simple Minds, #2 Mogwai, #1 Big Country.V 2 Comments
The Cat's Cradle is where this amazing band got their name rom and I love them so much! 227 is so not them lewl whatever their final placing is, remember that you guys will always be top10 in my heart ^^V 1 Comment

Wow this list is horrible 3 doors down has so many great songs Gah can't believe this
WHAT?!?! How the hell this band so low?! They are the real rock of 21th century. This list so screwed. Disgusting. - Nickss
Another bad mistake! This just goes to show you that these people making this list is out of their f' 'n minds!
I agree these guys are so goodV 4 Comments
How could it be that a band that used to have Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page in the guitars is so low listed? Have you ever hear them? They rock!
They were the first super group of their time, before cream and hendrix
Haven't heard many songs, but at least a top 50 ranking
3 of the 5 best guitarists ever!V 3 Comments
they are a very heavy band but they have great guitar and drums. their screamer is very good as well. listen to blacken the cursed sun and walk with me to hell -
Hell yes, they are the best. They should be number one, all of their songs are good. They have a great drummer and vocalist.
Number one metal band in the world! They have the best break downs ever! The best at their genre! Perfect vocals! I just love this band! Who cares about the rating! Any metal head would know how good this band is!
True American Metal at its FINEST!V 4 Comments
My favorite band. Best musical climaxes in Rock history. 1992 to 1997 ruled. Still a quality force in live music.
Best live act around today
200... are you kidding me. No one knows music anymore. Phish should be at least top 10. - Dukebags
Is this list even real? It's like playing a game of spot the good band. Voting for thiese to take them slightly higher, even though I prefer a few others on the list.
Runnin' Wild is one of the best rock albums of recent years - it's a shame so many rock fans don't know it!
Most people haven't heard of them - but they play great, energetic rock and deserve a wider audience. They are superb live as well as in the studio.
First of all, it says ROCK, not metal, not pop, ROCK. Second of all, Airbourne has the most energy ever put into a studio recording. I saw them live earlier this year, and let's just say, their energy was nearly tripled!
Very much like AC/DC
