Best Rock Bands of All Time

321 D'erlanger

You will see an underrated band overseas cooler than the famous X-Japan. They are popular in Japan but other people acknowledge x-Japan as the only rock group that started visual kei - ronluna

322 Depeche Mode Depeche Mode Depeche Mode are an English electronic and synth-pop band formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex. The group's original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andy Fletcher, and Vince Clarke.

The most popular electronic band the world has ever known, one of the few who changed the world of music. They have been going on over 30 years and have not been really recognized in the UK. Well, nobody can be a prophet in his own land.

This is the best alternative band in the world period. No Alternative music musician will argue that Depeche Mode's songs has some sort of influence on them.

Powerful. Plenty of meaning and soul, and though it may sound strange, so powerful live as Pink Floyd or whoever reigns that title

This is not a band for everybody but everybody can find a song for himself from their repertoire.

323 CN Blue

I love them! They're a South Korean rockband full of awesome guys with a lot of talent! They are kinda new, so they deserve some nice votes! Love CN Blue, look 'em up if you don't know 'em.

Cnblue is a unique band and compose and write lyrics to all their songs. Moreover, there are lots of different songs you can listen to whatever mood you are in

CN BLUE IS THE BEST BAND, has wonderful song, is a band that their music reflects a lot of feeling;CNBLUE best is that they love the music they love their fans as.

They are the Best Rock Bands of All Time

324 Slade Slade

They were the original punk/glam/melodic hard rock band! They inspired the Ramones as well as many bands that made it big with their catchy pop rock music! Most known for the horrible remake by Quiet Riot "come on feel the
Noise" but they had so many great songs like that. Their comeback in 83 showed they still had it with the hit Runaway.
Noddy HOlder had one of the greatest voices in rock ever! He could out do Plant easily! They were one of a kind.

Holy crap really! This band is awesome.

325 Poets of the Fall

Awesome lyrics, awesome vocals, awesome music. They don't have a single song that you can term as crap, which is a rarity for a rock band. Its not in the top 10 simply because they are from Finland, and not USA.

They are an amazing band! The lyrics are so amazing, and Marko's voice is so unique and powerful! They are the best band on Earth

Truly one of the top ten bands of the decade. They should be within the top 10 bands of this list... Please please please vote for this band.

327! seriously?! They should be in top 30 at least

326 One Ok Rock

ONE OK ROCK already proved themselves not just in Japan, but also world wide. They deserved to be on top not because they're popular it's because of their music, the energy in their performance and the passion and love between the band and their fans. I might cry lmao. No seriously I have seen them perform.. It's just so beautiful and heartwarming. It's true ONE OK ROCK'S music can save people and can bring us fans closer to them.

One of the most amazing Japanese rock-bands in my opinion. A young band making pure rock, inspired by American references and sublimated by the unique voice of the singer.
There is not one proper song to start to listen to them, because almost all of them are awesome! A band who deserves to become more and more famous, and to go all around the world!

ONE OK ROCK is the best on all of the rock bands in Japan because they're have an Beautiful Lyrics and Great Tune of Music. That's why I voted for ONE OK ROCK

The best underrated rock band, and they just great

327 Midnight Oil Midnight Oil Midnight Oil are an Australian rock band, who originally performed as Farm from 1972 with drummer Rob Hirst, bass guitarist Andrew James and keyboard player/lead guitarist Jim Moginie.

Should be smack in the top ten - the greatest thinking mans rock band EVER. Pure passion fuelled by burning intelligence, the rarest of rock pairings. From 10,9,8, to Capricornia is an unbroken stretch of classic albums that stand against anybody's best. Australia's best band by a huge margin and the best "protest" band to ever exist. Kings of the mountain.

Songs that have universal power and appeal years after their creation. Never fail to inspire and strengthen in a world of blind greed and deception - top five band of ALL TIME.

One of the all time greats who were way ahead of their time. Prophetic music that sounds more relevant than ever.

Wow a 12 year old has this as there favourite band

328 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

The only reason why this band is so low (indeed not even on the list! ), is because the lack of name association. So can a band with a silly name and a cult following really be as good as Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Pink Floyd etc?... Surprisingly, Yes! So why are they not more popular? This is honestly one of the biggest mysteries in music!. I honestly believe that this band will remain a cult favourite far into the future.

They are the absolute best band of all time for sure! They would be Number 1 in this list in my opinion. No band on this list is as talented and versatile as Porcupine Tree is!

This is not list where this album is to be featured... Create a list called "The Rock Band Which Ruled The World"

Legendary band

329 Faith No More Faith No More Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

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 faith

331 Silverchair Silverchair Silverchair were an Australian rock band, which formed in 1992 as Innocent Criminals in Merewether, Newcastle with the line-up of Ben Gillies on drums, Daniel Johns on vocals and guitars, and Chris Joannou on bass guitar.

The greatest band without a doubt! You people are blind! All of their studio albums reached top ten in the world, all of their albums reached number 1 in Australia. How can this be so low? Pure massacre, tomorrow, freak, anthem y2k, ana's song, love your life, straight lines. Think again people!

A band with 3 genius who grew up together. From Tomorrow to Young Modern, everything is amazing and wondeful! Daniel Johns is forever the best songwriter!

I can't believe they're so low on this list, listen to the song "Freak" And you'll start liking them. - Mumbizz01

Silverchair should be higher very underrated band

332 The Pretty Reckless

With a vocalist Taylor Momsen known from her role in the T.V. series "Gossip Girl". Great music, strong voice and strong songs! Seen them live and they are amazing! Love them!

The Best Woman (Hard Rock) Voice On The Word. The Best Choked Voice And Special Tone Of Voice On The Word (Taylor Momsen)

Taylor Momsen is definitely the best vocalist I've ever heard... Live versions sound even better than studio!

Best band ever

333 The Mars Volta

the mars volta should be number one without a doubt, how do bands like nickelback who lack any form of creativity get above the mars volta. the mars volta is one of the only bands in years to take music to new places, they are going to go down as legends and hopefully one day everyone will realise they are in fact the greatest band ever.

They transcend genres. #1 band of all time. That's all there is to it.

The only good band I know of right now. seriously? Half the stuff on this list isn't even rock!

If you don't know about this band, I urge you to look into them.

334 Body Count

Oh man this guys are great they toured with Metallica And Guns & Roses. They Sound like the great NWOBH time, ernie C Great Guitar Player like the rest of the band. BC Baby

How can Body Count can be not in the top 10. They Played just like iron maiden or metallica even better. Come on Ernie C rocks

335 Phish Phish Phish is a band known for musical improvisation, extended jams, blending of genres, and dedicated fan base.

My favorite band. Best musical climaxes in Rock history. 1992 to 1997 ruled. Still a quality force in live music.

Best live act around today

200... are you kidding me. No one knows music anymore. Phish should be at least top 10. - Dukebags

336 Blur Blur Blur are an English rock band, formed in London in 1988. The group consists of singer/keyboardist/guitarist Damon Albarn, guitarist/singer Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree.

Uh... What? Just a sec, I'm trying to process the fact that Blur is in the 1100s. - SammySpore

Not exactly rock but Oasis and Pulp are on this list so I guess this counts

Blur is just as good if not better than oasis, how is it so far behind?

How on earth is such a great band so low?

337 The Script The Script The Script is an Irish pop rock band formed in 2001. The band comprises keyboardist and lead vocalist Danny O'Donoghue, guitarist and vocalist Mark Sheehan and drummer Glen Power.

The best band ever in history of music! Listen to songs like hall of fame, for the first time, nothing, the man who can't be moved! Right from lyrics till the beats, everything is just perfect about this band. It lacks a bit recognition, that's it! Please vote

I love The Script, they are my favorite band, there is so much meaning behind all their songs. My favorite is 'If You Could See Me Now' The Script deserve too be further up on here, I am a huge alternative rock fan and I also like Coldplay

Their songs are great! Every song has its own story that you guys can relate... Cool! The most cool band that I know!

Best best best lyrics in the world

338 XTC

Perhaps the most bafflingly unheralded band to ever come out of merrie old England. Aligned with the times at the beginning, they slowly slipped into a more retro, classicist form of pop the further they progressed. This pop, however, was consistently brilliant and unmistakably their own. Partridge and Moulding are often held up to Lennon and McCartney - fine, and not incorrect, but they are their own talents, and big ones at that. Trying not to be a gushy acolyte here, but this is one of the great swaths of work in popular music. Listen to it.

Beautiful magical music wrapped in every color except grey. Never got bad and never less than brilliant. Pure love for Andy, Colin, Dave and their ferris wheel of drummers.

Andy Partridge is an absolute genius. Greatest songwriter of all time. Better than anyone you can name by a mile. Not his fault that he doesn't fit the star paradigm and not his fault that people are dense.

No perhapses about it mate!
