Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 12

221 INXS INXS INXS were an Australian rock 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!

Come on! INXS at one time was one of biggest bands in the world..

Awesome band

224 Foghat Foghat Foghat are an English rock band formed in London in 1971. The band is known for its prominent use of electric slide guitar in its music.

Another classic rock band. I think they deserve a higher spot than this. They're sort of Boogie Rock too.

Another Great Band. Vet your heads out of your asses!

225 Zebra Zebra Zebra is a hard rock band founded in 1975 in New Orleans, Louisiana. It features Randy Jackson, Felix Hanemann and Guy Gelso.
226 Evans Blue

Their best song is probably This Time It's Different. If you haven't heard it yet, you're missing out!

Lol how are they a rock band?

232 Demotional Demotional
233 Weezer Weezer Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.

This top ten has every band in existence weezer deserves better ratings then this

Weezer are such an amazing band! All the songs are amazing and the riff in Dope nose is awesome. How can they be so low they could be top 20 at worst. They have so many well known songs I knew about half of them before I even knew weezer.

Weezer! I loved this band when I was little, and still love it! It's super duper best rock band. Led Zeppelin should be 2nd and weezer should be first! Jimi Hendrix should be three, and kiss should be four.

They need to be up higher. The problem with this voting thing is that people won't vote for a band at 231st

234 Cheap Trick Cheap Trick Cheap Trick is an American rock band from Rockford, Illinois, formed in 1973. As of 2010, the band currently consists of Robin Zander, Rick Nielsen, Tom Petersson and Daxx Nielsen.

For real one of the greatest bands of all time. Rick Nielsen is grossly underrated as an amazing songwriter and electrifying guitar player / fantastic showman. Just because songs aren't hits doesn't mean they aren't genius - go through their oeuvre and see how many gems this man has written. And stop lumping Trick in with crap like Poison and Motley Crue - they are in a totally different league!

One of those bands that pull a lot of disparate influences into something unique and magical. I remember how strange they seemed to me when I first discovered them, how unclassifiable but wonderful. Much greater than they are ever given credit for and one of the top 3 American bands. Undisputed rock GODS.

The first 4 albums are just classics and should be in anybody's rock collection. Zander one of the greatest voices in
Rock but also the band were also one of a kind. Their quirky raw pop punk melodic rock was very original and copied
By many since! Yeah they had the pop albums with hits but they were still good and they always put on a good show!
Many bands suffered from record company crap and they were one of them but their songs still sound great today!

I like metal like Mastodon and Deafheaven but Cheap Trick is and always will be my favorite band. Nothing can supplant them in my mind and heart.

235 Lostprophets Lostprophets

1 of my favorite band and I love it so much their songs like last train home, where we belong, burn burn they all are awesome man... They know the real meaning of rock music

Lostprophets are the best. They really do know haw to rock. I love their songs like we bring an arsenal and where we belong. They really should be at the top 20 at least

They are immense fair play, I loves them I do butt.
Best welsh band! Cymru Am Byth!
Should be number one, Last Train Home and Rooftops are fantastic

I loved the album Liberation Transmission. Some really great songs on there!

236 Europe Europe Europe is a Swedish rock band formed in Upplands Väsby, Stockholm in 1979 under the name Force by vocalist Joey Tempest, guitarist John Norum, bassist Peter Olsson and drummer Tony Reno.

It is a shame that they have to be pigeonholed as a one-hit-wonder band with the song - The Final Coundown. They have formed back up and reshaped their sound too, for example, on their latest album "Secret Society".

They have been criticised by many music critics, mainly because of that one song, and are way underrated.

Actually I love The Final Countdown: it always gives me a boost, in fact I always listens to it when I have to carry out a hard task. Not to mention other really explosive tracks, such as "Superstitious", " Sign of Times" and more recently " Always the Pretenders" or "Last Look at Eden".

Hey! Why are they in a top 200? They should be in a top 10! They were first rock band on the list in 21 countries 1986. And remember The Final Countdown!

They should be in top 10

1 2 3 take my hand and come with me cause they are fine and they should be number one

Top Aussie Band, Was one of the better bands in the garage rock revival scene of the early 2000s. Have great guitar driven songs but also have a nice ballady/softer side. Highly recommend Get Born to any fan of rock, especially those who are interested in garage rock revival and bands like The Strokes and The White Striples

239 The Calling
240 Crush 40

We can all agree that Crush 40 has produced THE all time greatest video game music.

Why is crush 40 at 911? it should be way higher

Made some cool songs for Sonic games - mtndewlord
