Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 10
With a vocalist Taylor Momsen known from her role in the T.V. series "Gossip Girl". Great music, strong voice and strong songs! Seen them live and they are amazing! Love them!
The Best Woman (Hard Rock) Voice On The Word. The Best Choked Voice And Special Tone Of Voice On The Word (Taylor Momsen)
Taylor Momsen is definitely the best vocalist I've ever heard... Live versions sound even better than studio!

The first ever glam rockers, Marc Bolan did something truly unique here, and who knows what they would have done if it wasn't for that car crash
Influenced artists as diverse as The Smiths and Prince, and Slash and Steven Tyler are also fans of themV 1 Comment
This band isn't that bad I like them.
Come on Danzig fans I know you're out there. We are below Savage Garden. Are boy needs some love. - Blackdragonfish
I really dig the song "Mother". I hear it on the radio a lot and I always like the sound of this song.
Danzig should be a lot higher than 219V 2 Comments
The Cure best band ever! Love it since 1992. Great sound, lyrics, Robert is the best. Disintegration, pornography, the head on the door, kiss me kiss me kiss me, wish are a good example how good is the band. In the eighties they released their best albums, and in the 90s and new millennium still rocking!
Robert's voice is perfect, he is genious and The Cure is really GREAT! They have a style, Disintegration is perfect, but there are many hits from other albums.
disintegration BABY, ITS HEARTBREAK HEAVEN!
they've had ALL kinds of awesome hits and no one's even putting it on a list!
HOW they can be at 176!? This is just ridiculous. Bands like Black Veil Brides are above these genius. Such a shame. They are a huge influence in gothic rock and I am sure that the members of half of the bands that are above The Cure used to be depressed goth teenagers that decided to express their disconformism throughout music. Also, their music are intelligent and delightful. My granmother, my mother and me love The Cure (3 generations! ) and their songs are suoer catchy!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.
What why so low they won the Grammy for album of the year such a great bandV 5 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
The music is just amazing and the singer makes it all the best!
I'm so sick of seeing them being compared to female-fronted bands like Evanescence and Paramore. Nightwish are completely different in terms of musicianship, vocals, and songwriting, and they have much, much more variety; listening to Wishmaster and Imaginaerum is like listening to two separate bands. Of course, despite their popularity, there are too many mediocre alternative/hard rock bands out today that are even more so, and because of this I doubt Nightwish will even be voted onto the first page of this poll.
Songwriting, music, vocals, live performences...at best there can be!V 7 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.
More of an Alternative Rock/Rock
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.
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!
Best band out there... too low in this list.. asking Alexandria is above them what the hellV 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.
Such incredible, heart expanding music.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
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.V 3 Comments
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!
Dude they're are famous for kryptonite... they're not suppose to be this lowV 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
