281 The Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska.

Oh my GOD. I don't want to live on this planet anymore... How are bands like Linkin Park, Escape the Fate, Falling in Reverse, ALESANA, AND SELENA GOMEZ AND THE SCENE HIGHER THAN THE GOO GOO DOLLS? Selena Gomez and The SCENE is higher! What has this world come to...? *cries* The Goo Goo Dolls are so amazing... They deserve way more votes considering over half the bands higher than them don't even belong on this list...

They make Bon Jovi look like a homeless band trying to get a few coins at a New York subway.

I totally agree most of the bands on here totally don't belong seriously R5 and Big Time Rush are not in any way shape or form rock! The Goo Goo Dolls are amazing!

How are they not on here? The Goo Goo Dolls are amazing

Can easily make the top 15. Overlooked band.
Bands like Linkin Park have made the cut but Deep Purple hasn't. Although I am just 20, it is sad looking at the present music culture of the world.

I loved there music! They were awesome!?
Another bad choice on your list!

294 Tesla

This angers me. My life's goal is to find one bad Tesla song. There music quality is that of top 10. How is Neon trees, Plain White Tees, and Florence and the machine considered rock?

Almost 30 years of music and they haven't released one bad song.

Simply the greatest ever, buy psychotic supper and you'll understand

Excellent band, top 10

295 Ten Years After

Just ask all the bands that where booed off the stage because the audience ONLY wanted to hear T. Y. A.

Just watch them at woodstock, hugely under rated.

297 Matchbox Twenty

They're not rock, they are Pop.

298 Daughter
299 Devo Devo

Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! come on, that is the greatest punk album of all time! Then they moved on to new wave and released genius works of art like Oh, No! It's Devo. then of course you have the infamous "Whip It", which I am not a big fan of btw.

One of my favorite new wave bands should be in top 100. what
