What? ANTHRAX IS 168? THEY ARE AWESOME! Its like people wont even try and give them a chance! They have brought out amazing songs over the past years, as well as albums! I can't even see why no-one would vote for them :/

Best band ever. Dude they are the thrash metal pioneers. There songs are simply awesome. Whether it be I'm alive, in the end, caught in a mosh or Indians THEY ARE ALL AWESOME. Can't believe THEY are not in this list.

Such an underrated band. Best bass, best lyrics, best vocals, and even the solos are amazing.

HOW ARE THEY BELOW BVB - VideoGamefan5

183 The Stone Roses

The Stone Roses at 271? They influenced started the so called "Brit-pop" era of the 90s as well as producing their self titled album which for me is an all-time great.

The Stone Roses should definitely be higher. One of my all time favourite bands and influenced so many other artists!

So a band called barenaked ladies is higher than the stone roses? Wow this generation knows nothing about Music

Ian Brown is awesome

185 Death From Above 1979

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.

186 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

187 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!

194 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!

196 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 MGMT MGMT MGMT is an American rock band formed in 2002 by Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden. After the release of their first album, the members of their live band, Matthew Asti, James Richardson and Will Berman, joined the core band in the studio.

I would say that MGMT are more Indie than Rock, but they are still a very good band

198 Metric

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

Metric is great

199 Whitesnake Whitesnake Whitesnake are a rock band formed in England in 1978 by singer David Coverdale, after his departure from his previous band Deep Purple.

Yes Whitesnake was around before 87's big hit Still of the Night and Here I Go Again was a hit in 82 for them in
Europe! It America a while to catch on to them! They band was a hard rocking bluesy band not the glam band with
Screaming guitar that came later. Coverdale voice was original deep and bluesy until he started the screaming.
The live album Live in the Heart of the City is a classic and start here if you never heard earlier Whitesnake. The
Last few albums have been awesome also more like early whitesnake but of course keeping their harder sound.
Jon Lord and Ian Paice from Deep Purple were in the earlier version! Too bad Coverdale has lost his original voice.

I AMAZED SEEING THIS LIST. AFTER THE JUDGMENT DAY, HERE I GO AGAIN, IS THIS LOVE, THE DEEPER THE LOVE WHY THEY ARE HERE? THEY SHOULD BE IN TOP TEN. - RIFATHUSSAIN

Dude! Just listen to "Looking For Love", and see how the David Coverdale/John Sykes duo switches from the bluesy, lovestruck, heart wrenching vocals to an all out, no holds barred wicked onslaught of guitar riffs and angry screeching----- epic stuff! This song characterizes my music taste in one neat little package.

200 Primus Primus Primus is an American rock band based in San Francisco, California, currently composed of bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim Alexander. Les Claypool is regarded as one of the best bassists of all time for his slap-bass ability in notable songs like "My Name Is Mud", "The Toys ...read more.

Primus has the best bassist in the universe, and all of the songs are awesome! Anybody who tries to beat Primus at being awesome will fail. Primus Sucks!

Primus deserves better than 139th place. Primus deserves to be in at least the top 50. Les Claypool auditioned to join Metallica once after the original bassist had died, and he didn't make it because he was too good.

Heh, it's a pity that not in first 100, but still good that in first 300

Best bassist ever, but he's practically the whole band.
