181 Steve Miller Band Steve Miller Band The Steve Miller Band is an American rock band formed in 1966 in San Francisco, California. The band is led by Steve Miller on guitar and lead vocals.

Why the heck is this band so far back? It should be in at LEAST the top 50, seriously. Their songs have nice riffs and solos, but aren't too loud and crazy like most modern rock bands. (And no, I don't just like them because I'm old, because I'm not, I'm 14! ) The songs are also super duper catchy and have great and memorable lyrics. Some songs have great meanings that you might want to take seriously, then there are those that are simply for fun and make you fill with joy all over! Steve Miller Band is what got me into rock in the first place, and while I like other great bands like Bon Jovi and Guns N Roses. Ol Steve Miller Band will always be the best!

One of the most melodic and classic rock bands. You can surely see the fun rock side of this band and Steve Miller was and is a great simple song writer...

Steve Miller is a classic and should be in the top ten. He's one of greatest musicians of all time, indeed. How can anyone not agree? He also plays some great melodies and has a graceful singing voice!

No way, this band is top 12! I'm angry

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!

Amazing band! Amazing live! Have made some of the greatest metal songs ever! It's ashame they are so low. Kind of a spit in the face to all metal heads in the world

183 Sick Puppies Sick Puppies Sick Puppies is an Australian rock band, formed in 1997. Sick Puppies rose to prominence in 2006 when their song "All the Same" was uploaded along with a video to YouTube.

The bass in this band is stunning. The female bassist is if not the best, one of the greatest bassists I have heard. She can play and hit every note fast while still getting the nice bass sound. The singers voice can range from a nice calm song to a hardcore song that makes you want to turn into Rambo.

More of a Alternative Rock/Hard Rock

This one deserves forth place... Or second. One of the best bands on EARTH!

190 Upon A Burning Body
191 Traffic Traffic

Traffic was a super-group of their day, and they deserved the acclaim! Jazz-inspired rock with musicianship of the highest caliber. Some of it sounds dated today, but much of their music still sounds as fresh today as it did in the 1960's. I can only believe the low rating is due to people not knowing how good these guys are.

220? Really? Just listen and you'll move them to the top 10!

192 The Yardbirds The Yardbirds The Yardbirds are an English rock band formed in London in 1963 that had a string of hits during the mid-1960s, including "For Your Love", "Heart Full of Soul" and "Over Under Sideways Down".

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!

This band is full of musical genius! How are they not higher in the list? Besides, rolling stone magazine had them in their 100 greatest artists of all time

They were the first super group of their time, before cream and hendrix

3 of the 5 best guitarists ever!

193 Airbourne

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

194 Anberlin Anberlin Anberlin was an American rock band formed in Winter Haven, Florida in 1998. Since the beginning of 2007, the band consisted of lead vocalist Stephen Christian, guitarists Joseph Milligan and Christian McAlhaney, bassist Deon Rexroat, and drummer Nathan Young.

So underrated

Sooo low its discouraging! Such a great band!

195 NOFX NOFX NOFX are an American punk rock band from Los Angeles, California. The band was formed in 1983 by vocalist/bassist Fat Mike and guitarist Eric Melvin. Drummer Erik Sandin joined NOFX shortly after.

Genius and hilarious lyrics. Actually cerebral yet funny and touch on a lot of political topics. Wolves in wolves clothing is one of the greatest albums of all time as a peoples revolution anarchist

First, put this best band as the best. Stupid planet doesn't know the definition of punk. Listen to NOFX and it will change your life. Come on!

Great punk band. Check out "The Decline"

197 Dinosaur Jr. Dinosaur Jr. Dinosaur Jr. is an American rock band formed in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1984, originally simply called Dinosaur until legal issues forced a change in name.

Without a Sound is a great album
Feel the Pain is the big hit on that album

Dinosaur Sr.

198 Metric

Damn solid group. I wish I'd found them years ago

Metric is great

199 Heaven's Basement
200 INXS INXS INXS were an Australian rock and pop band, formed as The Farriss Brothers in 1977 in Sydney, New South Wales.

Inxs is the greatest band in the world! They should be #1 on the list! Their hit including "Need You Tonight", "Never Tear Us Apart", "What You Need", "New Sensation", and even more will always leave a legacy in the rock n' roll business. Plus, they've dominated the world with their awesome music since the late 70's. INXS FOREVER!

This is a joke right? I've scrolled through about 50 bands I never even heard of to get to Inxs! One of the greatest bands ever! Live baby live enough said! - Davey7830

Why are INXS #248? This list is strange!

This is a pop band, should not be on this list - frankmartin
