Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 18
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
This band tend to get reduced to just Mike Patton who is a great, if unlikable, frontman but they are an incredibly strong and unique outfit. All their albums are worth hearing and their last ( Sol Invictus ) is, against all odds, not just an embarrassing grasp at past glories. So I guess I'm saying they are a fantastic band! So there.V 4 Comments
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!

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 bandV 3 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
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
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.

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.

The Manchester based Joy Division provided raw post-punk music that haunts and captures the spirit of existential horrors. With a mentally ill frontman, they gained success with the implosion of punk into new wave. A heavy and fantastic bass accompanies the monotonous vocals of Ian Curtis to create the legend of Joy Division, which will live on.
I'm speechless to see the god fathers of post post back here, no band will ever do what Joy Division did. Love will tear us apart alone is far superior than the complete works of other bands.
Linkin Park is in top 10? What an outrage. Joy Division should at least be No. 5
WHAT!? Should be Top 5. - alvinsburritoV 7 Comments
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 ITV 15 Comments
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!V 5 Comments
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 hallV 4 Comments
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...
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
G. C all the way! People when its rock, it has to be Good Charlotte.. Amazing lyrics.. Their songs are meaningful.. With awesome rhythm. Serving wonderful music from more than 10 years NOW.. PUNK ROCK, DANCE ROCK.. OH GOD! ITS G. C GUYS.. ALL THE WAY! VOTE..
Sub par, commercial pop band. Nothing more.V 3 Comments
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!V 5 Comments
Nobody can beat them. Best power and melodic heavy metal band of all time!

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
Call me the Devil
Alice Nine is the most rising Japanese Visual Rock Bands in Japan. Their music are always grows and they tried to add other genre and mixed it with Rock like jazz, blues, ballad and some synthesizer.. they're awesome!
Best band ever. Shou's voice is amazing! They aren't a legend, but they deserve for attention too. Hope you like this bandV 1 Comment
