Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 18

341 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

342 Supertramp

Are you kidding? 409? Listen to their music. Who's list is this anyway?

One of the best bands in the music rock history.

I totally agree that they are "One of the best bands in rock music"... I just nominated them, thinking no one knew who they are.

343 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.

344 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

345 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.

Yay XTC!

347 Modest Mouse Modest Mouse Modest Mouse is an American rock band formed in 1992 in Issaquah, Washington, and currently based in Portland, Oregon.

There's like 680 bands (and more to be added later) on this list, and THIS is what they get? I think these guys are amazing, and that they deserve more credit for their work.

Modest Mouse is an incredible band. On the first few listens their songs don't seem like much, but give them time to grow and you'll find that they're possibly the best band of all time. It's pretty sad that they're not on this list already.

Modest Mouse being all the way back here isn't nice, but it makes sense. Their music isn't for everyone, though it's all fantastic and very unique. Wish they were higher, but they're comfortable wherever they are.

Amazing, smart, good tone, listen to dance hall

Good Charlotte rocks! Not only have they been around for ten years, but after those ten years, they're still young and full of great potential. They have more than 50 songs and I don't dislike one of them! Good Charlotte is sort of undiscovered though. Just go on to Napster or iTunes or whatever you use and type in Good Charlotte. I bet you know some of their songs, like...
- Cookieman1221

What! What! What! What! THEY ARE THE BEST BAND FOR ME RIGHT NOW AND ALSO THE MOST STYLIST BAND EVER! HOW CAN THEY BE ON NO.163, FOR THOSE WHO ARE LOOKING FOR GOOD SONGS THEN LISTEN TO THE SONGS OF GOOD CHARLOTTE

349 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

The vocals take some time to get used to but you get to realize that it fits the type of music.
The band is great and I recommend because they are quite talented and they are underrated.
They tell a story with their music, literally. The lead singer writes comics so you can read his books and then understand or almost predict what is coming next.

More of an Alternative Rock/Rock

Why Coheed and Cambria isn't in the top 50.
I think that coheed really makes it to top 50 at least. Know why? Because they have a natural talent
and then they have a great song.
"Welcome Home" is one of the greatest song that I've heard.

One of the most greatest bands of all time.
Hell of nice guys.
Amazing bass lines and guitar riffs.
Perfect vocals and drum beats.
I don't understand why they're not on here.

Best band

350 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!

AMAZING.I LIKE IT MOST AND NEVER MISSES A SONG OF IT

353 Emerson, Lake & Palmer Emerson, Lake & Palmer Emerson, Lake & Palmer were an English progressive rock supergroup formed in London in 1970. The band consisted of keyboardist Keith Emerson, singer, bassist, and producer Greg Lake, and drummer and percussionist Carl Palmer.

Together with King Crimson, Genesis, Yes and Pink Floyd they are the most respected progressive rock groups. But only they have the greatest keyboardist in rock, one of the greatest voices and such an impressive drummer. Some songs can make you jump, others make you easily cry.

Top of the bill during the California Jam Festival, pushing co-stars Deep Purple to second billing. - Honkytonkman

Best group all over the world...

What the actual f***! 347! This is outrageous! They deserve to be at least in the top 30!

354 Escape The Fate

Still a young band, Will be a famous band in the future now they got 1 problem their ex-singer ronnie radke who was told to leave the band and did created songs wich can only be sang by himself but now the new Singer Craig can only sing songs wich are plesant and low pitches but there some some screamo songs but this was their only problem or else a great awesome band

they are so wacky yet deep and emotional and funny and, well every single one of their songs just sorta reaches out and takes a hold of your emotions, no two are the same.

Wow sad such a great band is ranked so low... Way better than Metallica that's for sure

I am a liar, I am no model figure
I am a monster, And I am ashamed

Quite low for a band that sold 100 million records and had a zillion top 40 singles, don't you agree?

359 Blondie Blondie Blondie is an American rock band founded by singer Debbie Harry and guitarist Chris Stein. The band was a pioneer in the early American new wave and punk scenes of the mid-late 1970s.

come on, shes one of the most famous women rock artists ever even if shes not the most hardcore

Blondie is unique to other bands and most people I know have heard of them and raved about them I don't see why no one voted for them! I think they should definitely be voted number one.

They didn't enjoy a huge amount of success, but they were very good.

360 The Cult The Cult The Cult are a British rock band formed in 1983. Before settling on their current moniker in January 1984, the band performed under the names Southern Death Cult and Death Cult.

These Guys Should Be WAY Higher
Lisen to Love Removal Machine that will change your minds
CULT FOREVER!

I LOVE the Love album, that made me get into them but that is pretty much the only thing I like by them.

Alleluia, brother! Sure their not as popular as Metallica, led zep and acdc, but they deserve recognition. 148th? Oh hell no! They deserve to be at least in the top 20 if not The Top Ten bands of all time. If your not a fan- yet- start off with Beyond Good and Evil, simply their best work, and perhaps The Greatest album of all time!

Better combination eclecticism, quality and true-as-it-gets combined in a band as far as I can tell. From Goth Rock to Heavy Metal, Rock n' Roll, Post Punk, Psychodelia, 70's Rock, Alternative, Electro Rock and more... The Cult has done it all. And always with superb quality. Easy choice.
