287 Motley Crue Motley Crue Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

Motley is the definition of rock n roll! Those guys live and breathe rock n roll! Excess is best, that's their motto. I still cannot believe those guys are still around to tell all the stories. I have been a huge fan since I was 5 years old. And all original members are still doing it together after more than thirty years of decadence. It's very rare I love motley.

80?! OMG... How about Number 1?! Come on.. The ENTIRE Feelgood album? Girls Girls Girls.. Kick start my heart.. Voters are sad...

Seriously?! This low? What other band could defy the grim reaper on many occasions, argue to the point of threatening each others lives, and STILL kick ass any time they are onstage or in studio? Motley Crue is the best rock band in history! They are my SAINTS!

Motley Crue is the best damn rock band known to man this website is a joke. This is an insult to Motley Crue. They are not #137

288 Oasis Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

I've been listening to just about every kind of music, and Oasis is the only band that never dissapoints me! Noel Gallagher is the best songwriter of the last 20 years. Thank you for the good times Oasis!

How are Oasis #54? The Best Band to come out of Britain along with The Stones and The Beatles, But Oasis took inspiration and raised the bar to where it's never been, Noel writing songs wit unbelievable meaning and thousands of people relate to his lyrics, mix that with the attitude and arrogance of the best frontman there's ever been, You can't get any better? Manchester was the place to be back then!

How is Oasis at 53? They were the inspiration for all us growing up in the 80/90's. Some say they are not the best because they did not complete a world tour but does this really matter? They remind me of a time a long time ago when the world was easy to understand

What they were the last great rock'n'roll band so what are they doing here. Very 😭.

The Original "Borstal Boys", listen to "Stay With Me", "you're So Rude" and so on.

Bands like Blur, Kooks and FooFighters would say that Faces are the blueprint for a Rock band.
FF play "Stay With Me" live at nearly all their concerts, they adore Faces. - phr

290 The Cranberries The Cranberries The Cranberries are an Irish rock band who formed in Limerick in 1989. The band consists of lead singer Dolores O'Riordan, guitarist Noel Hogan, bassist Mike Hogan and drummer Fergal Lawler.

All their songs are worth listening to. Not a waste of time at all! Pity they had to stop performing... I've never met anyone who actually dislikes their songs, even those who aren't rock fans.

Best band ever with the best songs to me! - Cranberry20

I love their music, so soft and emotional... And Dolores has an unique voice too! - apouroiselle

Rest In Peace Dolores. We miss you.

291 A.F.I.

AFI is an amazing band that doesn't get the credit they deserve. They've been around since the early 90's and have put out multiple fantastic albums. Sing The Sorrow, Decemberunderground, Crash Love, Black Sails In The Sunset, The Art Of Drowning among others. Amazing band that doesn't get enough credit. - ToriHorrorPictureShow

Ok so they have fallen off, but from Black Sails To Sing The Sorrow, this band was the best in the world. Can't believe how many bands ahead of them, especially a lot of these newer bands with singers like ADTR. I mean if you don't have a great singer how can you have a great band? Davey is amazing.

A.F. I cannot be the best rock band of all the times for all people but in my opinion is the best rock band of all the universe and I love his songs, every song say feelings deep, therefore A.F. I have my vote

Amazing lyrics, amazing songs, one of the best of all time -

292 Falling In Reverse Falling In Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

New band, made by the Former Escape the fate Singer, Ronnie Radke, After Returning from Prison, Ronnie made songs About his Experience in Prison, About ETf, And his life. Why I like this band is because, they are unique, their album was a hit, it had all types of songs, this band will be a big hit in the future

Deserve to at least be in front of Escape the Fate lol

Ronnie radke is the best

Best modern rock band! - Marvel_1William

50 Years still together and playing hard after selling well over 100 million...

This guys are the best

They won't be up on the list because they are virtually unknowns in the USA and had maybe two hits in the 1960s. - frankmartin

21 century digital boys

I want my vote back! I want to vote for this now!

The greatest punk band of all time.

Those guys have been around for almost 35 years, and still pull out great punk rock albums. They defined what would become the 90s punk rock sound back in the 80s. So many great songs over the years, thanks guys!

297 Ween Ween Ween is an American experimental rock band formed in 1984, in New Hope, PA. It's members are Dean and Gene Ween.

Never seen another band who can pull off what these guys do, every song sounds like it came from a different band. Also they have covered so many different genres too, From hard rock to pop to country to jazz, these guys can do anything!

Where'd the cheese go at?

One of the best songwriting duos the U.S.of A has ever produced. Not one bad album in their discography and their solo work proves they can both do it alone just as easily. If you get these guys you will always love them.

Don't hurt em Deaner!
