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
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!V 1 Comment
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!V 2 Comments
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!
Woeful list, Stone Roses are possibly the best band since the end of the 70's.
Ian Brown is awesomeV 4 Comments
The best band ever! Justin sane is pure awesome, so is Chris baker... They should be in the top 10V 2 Comments
Seeing The Smiths this far down doesn't surprise me at all. One of the best bands in the history of music indeed, they have influenced every single act that has come out of the British rock since 1987, but they wouldn't be The Smiths if they achieved mainstream success. The Smiths stand for the outcasts, for the outsiders, for the alternative. Morrissey's lyrics entwined with Johnny Marr's melodic guitar playing gives us the most prominent songrwiting partnership since Lennon/McCartney. However, honey is not made for the lamb's snout. Let them stick to Linkin Park and Chester Bennington,30 seconds to mars and Avenged Sevenfold while we listen to the real thing.
Absolute travesty to see the genius of The Smiths so far down on this list. Daring and never seen before lyricism, one of the best guitarists to ever exist and hugely underrated bass and drums from Rourke and Joyce. This band has inspired the likes of the Oasis and Radiohead for crying out loud people!
No other band had more influence on 90s alternative singer-songwriters as Morrissey and The Smiths. Without The Smiths, "emo" would have never existed. Morrissey made it OK to say exactly how you felt about being awkward, nerdy, geeky and misunderstood. Johnny Marr's famous guitar stutter effect on "How Soon Is Now? " would forever change the sound of alternative rock guitar forever and spawn thousands of copycats.

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.
Why creed on 271? they he best rock band... Come on! Why!V 10 Comments
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!

Alice Nine is the most rising Japanese Visual Rock Bands in Japan. Their music are always grows and they tried to add other genre and mixed it with Rock like jazz, blues, ballad and some synthesizer.. they're awesome!
Best band ever. Shou's voice is amazing! They aren't a legend, but they deserve for attention too. Hope you like this bandV 1 Comment
Are you kidding? 409? Listen to their music. Who's list is this anyway?
One of the best bands in the music rock history.
I totally agree that they are "One of the best bands in rock music"... I just nominated them, thinking no one knew who they are.
Supertramp is the best crossover prog rock band in the music history, please...! It deserves to stay in the first 50 places of this list!V 6 Comments
Why is Opeth not on this list? Mikael Akerfeldt is the most talented musician I've ever heard (followed closely by John Petrucci). If you have never heard an Opeth song, you are doing yourself an injustice. Their music spans so many genres they have something for almost anybody. Definitely the most underrated band of all time.
Their constant switch to melodic and heavier styles of metal sound amazing, and they are definitely one of the best metal bands from the past few decades.
Ok... So I had to actually put them on here? Listen to Blackwater Park, so dark and atmospheric, so heavy and mellow. Just a perfect blend of soul and brutality
Opeth being this low on this list makes me so sad.V 5 Comments
Damn solid group. I wish I'd found them years ago
Metric is great
This band isn't that bad I like them.
Neil Finn is one of the best songwriters of ALL TIME. Seriously, the man is a genius - listen to any of their albums for definitive proof. Pure gold people.
Can't say enough about how good the songs are - never seem to lose their magic.
Temple Of Low Men and Together Alone are back to front masterpieces. Timeless music on par with any of the greats - Finn is incredibly unhearlded and underrated. Sublime.
New Zealand's best. Even Neil's Hobbit song is awesome!V 1 Comment
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
Great punk band. Check out "The Decline"V 2 Comments
I would say that MGMT are more Indie than Rock, but they are still a very good band
A lot of the reasons for adults still thinking bands like Styx, Kansas, and Journey are any good are centred around pure nostalgia and lack of musical knowledge. This band in particular is merely a second rate amalgam of moments copied from superior artists - if you can't hear this you really should broaden your musical tastes.
Why is this band at #142 something wrong here. At least in top ten.
I also think that Styx should have been at least in the top 15 or better.
Really, Styx is barely ahead of weezer, the crappiest band ever, I'd rather listen to damn Taylor swift than weezer. And I hate Taylor swiftV 11 Comments
Faith No More is easily one of the most influential bands from the last 30 years. Their music is so diverse, and almost all of it top notch, they at least deserve to be in the top 25.
160? are you serious? how can bands like A7X be above these guys? - Trish
Great band the vocalist are so good - mota
I still have faithV 3 Comments
