301 Selena Gomez & the Scene

What? This is ROCK not selena gomes

Eww. What on earth is selena gomez doing on this list. Her songs are AWFUL.

PLEASE don't MAKE ME LAUGH

302 Pendulum Pendulum Pendulum is an Australian drum and bass and electronic rock band founded in 2002. Pendulum originally formed in the Australian city of Perth, Western Australia by Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and Paul Harding.

The abillity to combine electronic genres of DnB and dubstep with rock, and still have it sound amazing, is something not many other bands could pull off.

303 Ian Gillan Band Ian Gillan Band Ian Gillan is an English singer and songwriter. He originally found success as the lead singer and lyricist for Deep Purple, and the original singer on the rock opera concept album Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber, where Gillan had the leading role (Jesus Christ).

Up to Born Again, the greatest hard rock vocalist EVER.

This band is awesome

304 Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band

I'm done. You people have 0 taste in music. Come on, Bob Seger and the silver bullet band at 456? This is a joke, right? Turn the page, night moves, old time rock and roll, against the wind, once METALICA covered them, for god sakes.

I meant savage garden not garden

I voted Queen (just saying) but I can't believe bands like FOB or 21 pilots or even ' garden whjwhjo onmly had one d-mn hit is above this band this is a band that really tries with hjollywood nights like a rock old time rock n roll this is just unacceptable this better change and quick.

307 Newsted
308 Cold Chisel Cold Chisel

Anyone reading this should get a cold chisel album. Try East first then Circus animals. Chisel are hands down the best Aussie band ever like Canadians think about Tragically Hip. Hard to believe these two bands did not reach world audiences. A great band for someone who is looking for something they may have missed who is fantastic.

Unbelievable to think that this band or several of the others from Australasia spawned from around that time are not in the top 50. There are 150 on this list that can only be rated as interesting enough to be loved by their mothers or eccentrics. Some followers and critics need to get out of their shelters for a while to sniff the air instead of stale inhaling.

Cold Chisel are Aussie icons but underrated out side Australia

309 Roxy Music Roxy Music

One of the best Art-rock bands of all time. If bands like Zeppelin were the hard kernel of rock, Roxy were the smooth, luxury chocolate coating. Bryan Ferry's voice (like or loathe it) was unique. The lyrics were superb, the music sublime. A quality product through and through.

Such an amazing run of albums! Flesh and Blood, often judged one of their lesser works, is one of my top ten records of all time. Literally all the others are as good or better. Incredible music.

If you didn't vote for this band then you just aren't listening to the right new music

One of my all-time favorite Alternative and Psychedelic Rock Bands!
Completly underrated! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

315 Crown the Empire

Machines by Crown The Empire is a truly inspirational song because if we're all just machines then we must be the clog, inside the wheels of change :D

317 Placebo Placebo Placebo are an English alternative rock band, formed in London in 1994 by singer-guitarist Brian Molko and guitarist-bassist Stefan Olsdal.

PLACEBO SPASEBO! RUSSIA LOVES YOU! YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME HERE!

I wanna say that Placebo is the most deepest band in the world. They make me feel happy and sad, make me cry and laugh in the same time. Their music is really wonderful and breathtaking! Love, Russia

I listen to all sorts of music, but Placebo is forever my number one. I've been a devoted fan since 2005 and I will forever be. When bands keep selling out and going very much mainstream and pop when they rocked like no tomorrow just a few years ago, Placebo stays true to themselves. Their music has changed over years, of course, you can easily differentiate earlier and latest stuff. But the mood, the unique style, Brians signature voice are forever there. Much love from Russia, Moscow.

Love these guys, I forgot about them lol...it's weird that Acarde is ahead of them...

318 Eraserheads Eraserheads Eraserheads is a Filipino rock band formed in 1989. Consisting of Ely Buendia, Marcus Adoro, Buddy Zabala and Raimund Marasigan, the band became one of the most successful, most influential, critically acclaimed, and significant bands in the Philippine music history.

ERASERHEADS, if they were not born, Philippine's MUSIC will not be alive. They serve as the inspiration of the Philippine band. They are compared with the Beatles, and so, they are so humble. They are the "THE BEATLES" of the Philippines.

The best band on earth"try to listen to their music

This is best band in the Philippines

If their musical pieces are translated in English, they would be in the top 10

319 Nightwish Nightwish Nightwish is a symphonic metal band from Kitee, Finland. The band was formed in 1996 by lead songwriter and keyboardist Tuomas Holopainen, guitarist Emppu Vuorinen, and lead singer Tarja Turunen.

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

I absolutely refuse to believe Nightwish is not #1. Every in the band is possibly the most talented person that plays the instruments (For example, Emppu on the guitars and Tuomas on the keyboards) and the three singers they have had are all amazing in their own ways. Tarja was trained in opera, Anette was the classic metal singer, and Floor's voice fits with Nightwish's music so well it's astonishing. The heavy metal combined with the orchestra truly makes for a beautiful sound. The lyrics are so deep half of them I can't understand, and I write songs exactly like Tuomas's. Nightwish is the most talented band in the world, there's no doubt about that. Their song The Poet and the Pendulum was the one that got me hooked. I heard it when I was just six years old and it blew me away. I've been a true and dedicated fan ever since. I don't speak Finnish, but I love Nightwish so much I've learned how to sing those songs. I know every lyric to every song, and I never get tired of listening ...more

I am personally offended Nightwish is not the first on this list. How is this possible? Nightwish has been the epitome of amazing symphonic metal for over 20 years. Not only are the lyrics so deep it takes me years to understand them, the music sounds otherworldly. Nightwish combines the classical sound of an orchestra with the most melodic metal I've ever heard. The keyboards and piano are complicated yet beautiful at the same time, the guitar riffs cannot be compared to anything else ever done, the singing mixes with the music perfectly, and the lyrics are one of a kind. Why isn't Nightwish first? Nightwish has been my favorite band for literally half my life. Why don't people give this amazing band the credit that they absolutely deserve?

Songwriting, music, vocals, live performences...at best there can be!

320 Anathema

They are so sincere in everything they do. Never-ending energy and evolution make this band special and beyond any music style. They are pure Anathema, nothing to add.

Soul-touching music, they should've been so much known internationally. Definitely one of the bands that reaches the inner side of yourself. I like to use my headphones and close my eyes while listening to them... Makes me travel deep inside my soul.

Simply the best band ever. No other band could ever convey such emotions.

They are so good that you can't feel your soul in your body when you listen to their songs
