Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 17

321 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.

Anathema I love you

326 The Kooks The Kooks The Kooks are an English rock band formed in 2004 in Brighton. The band currently consists of Luke Pritchard, Hugh Harris, Alexis Nunez, and Peter Denton. The original bassist was Max Rafferty, and the founding drummer was Paul Garred.

What the hell are they doing this far down? They are so incredible. Amazing vocals, style and songs! Should be way higher!

327 Switchfoot Switchfoot

This is just sad. Heck, the JONAS BROTHERS are in the low hundreds. This band at least deserves a place in the top fifty, probably the top ten. Switchfoot's lyrics are pure and meaningful and relevant. Their music is moving like so few bands can pull off these days. Best albums: Oh Gravity and Vice Verses. Best Songs: Restless, Your Love is a Song, Dark Horses, Awakening, American Dream... This band deserves WAY more than what the world gives them, one of the few GOOD bands still alive and running out there. Thanks Switchfoot for giving me hope that the music industry isn't in ruins!

THEY ARE so so COOL MAN ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! The person who has made this list... Please LISTEN TO DARE YOU TO MOVE! And YOUR LOVE IS A SONG! AND THEN GIVE ME REASONS WHY THEY aren't IN THIS LIST!

They're amazing. Just because they have Christian songs, no ones voting for them.

328 Skid Row Skid Row Skid Row is an American heavy metal band, formed in 1986 in Toms River, New Jersey. They were very successful in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with their first two albums certified multi-platinum.

Absolutely love "Youth Gone Wild". Heard it first on Guitar Hero On Tour. Amazing!

Skid Row is a great band with great music. Youth Gone Wild, 18 and life and slave to the grind

Great band and great powerful songs with meaning. They should be in top 10!

Why not in top 10 at least

330 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.

331 Volbeat Volbeat Volbeat are a Danish metal band which was formed in Copenhagen. They play a fusion of rock and roll, heavy metal and rockabilly.

This is one of my favorite band ever and they should be in the top ten list and even should be number 1 because Volbeat is the best and my Favorite songs are A Warriors Call and Still Counting and River Queen.

Everyone of their albums have been good and different, something I couldn't say about a lot of bands

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!

334 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

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).

337 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.

339 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
