Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 19

361 Chicago

band that broke new ground; rock band with horns. Their songs are classics: "25 or 6 to 4", "Saturday in the Park, " and "Feeling Stronger Everyday" to name a few. Many danced to "Color My World" at their proms.

They should be in the top 10!

Their first two albums were as good as music gets: there were a few "horn rock" bands that were among the greats (Chicago and BS&T the best among them). They became a pop band later in their career, and are now just a shadow of their former selves. But those first two albums... awesome.

RIP Terry Kath - one of the best guitarists of all time and the soul of this band.

An American treasure, toured with Jimi Hendricks and Jan Joplin, VERY underappreciated!

Should be within 20th place range
330 is too underrated for this great band

362 The Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska.

Oh my GOD. I don't want to live on this planet anymore... How are bands like Linkin Park, Escape the Fate, Falling in Reverse, ALESANA, AND SELENA GOMEZ AND THE SCENE HIGHER THAN THE GOO GOO DOLLS? Selena Gomez and The SCENE is higher! What has this world come to...? *cries* The Goo Goo Dolls are so amazing... They deserve way more votes considering over half the bands higher than them don't even belong on this list...

They make Bon Jovi look like a homeless band trying to get a few coins at a New York subway.

I totally agree most of the bands on here totally don't belong seriously R5 and Big Time Rush are not in any way shape or form rock! The Goo Goo Dolls are amazing!

How are they not on here? The Goo Goo Dolls are amazing

363 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

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

364 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

368 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.

The only reason these guys are down here is because most people are too dumb to understand their songs.

369 Daughtry Daughtry Daughtry is an American rock band formed and fronted by namesake Chris Daughtry, who was a finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Their self-titled debut album was released in November 2006.

Love songs like "There and Back Again" and "What I want". Chris Daughtry has an amazing voice and inspiring lyrics. Definitely an awesome band!

I love Daughtry! One of my favourite bands ever. I love most of their songs especially Open Your Eyes. They deserve to be higher than 184.

370 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

This band deserves to be in at least top 20...it's a band whose most songs are awesome..

371 OneRepublic OneRepublic OneRepublic is an American pop rock band. Formed in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2002 by lead singer Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on Myspace as an unsigned act.

They have 2 albums Dreaming out loud(2008"2009), Waking up(2009"2011)... The band has 5 members - Ryan Tedder(Vocals), Eddie Fisher(Drums), Zach Filkins(Guitar, Brent Kutzle(Cello) and Drew Brown(Bass guitar)...
OneRepublic made radio history when with their first single, "Apologize", received the largest amount of airplay in history with 10,331 plays in one week. One of the hardest working bands, with a lot of talent... One of their specialties is that, they are multi-talented...

HOW are they this low on the list?! Their music is so amazing! My favorite songs from them are Secrets, Good Life, and If I Lose Myself, but I love all their songs to be honest. They should AT LEAST be in the top 50. Please go listen to their songs and you won't regret it because their lyrics are incredible, and Ryan Tedder has an amazing voice!

Indeed they are very talented and underrated. The lead singer Ryan Tedder is also a music composer who produces music for likes such as Leona Lewis, Adele, Adam Lambert, Jordin sparks, Beyonce and so forth.

There are better, but I voted for the, because they are too low

372 Mayday Parade Mayday Parade Mayday Parade is an American rock band from Tallahassee, Florida. Their debut EP Tales Told by Dead Friends was released in 2006, and sold over 50,000 copies without any label support.

What you heard is the most moving, inspiring song! They accompany me during the hard-time, tell me Never say die no matter whatever I come across. That is me and my Stubbornness.

When you are listening to them, you need't to care about your age, your sex, your past or your future. When you are in the rhythm, sometimes you maybe feel you are in a really romantic surroundings even if what we hear belongs to rock. The lyrics and the rhythms created by Mayday indicate that what we really need do is that leave yourself as it really is!

There is a pure place in there hearts, and they are trying their best to express what they feel, what they see, and what they are willing to see. They also believe that music can touch one's heart, maybe just the only one line... I will accompany them and their music-music can change the world and clear your inner feeling. Thank you, Mayday! Ashin, Monster, Masa, Stone, Ming, I'm really happy to meet you, to be with you~

My favorite band, their music is so perfect and creative. Different from any other band I have heard.

Their music is so nice. their songs are one-of-a-kind.

373 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

374 Steely Dan Steely Dan

One of the greatest bands in history. Donald Fagen is a genius.

Babies must be voting here otherwise this band, and many others from that era would be at the top!

Wow an under 40 list, apparently talent doesn't matter as long as you can bang your head on something

368? That's not even fair. They need to be top 20 AT LEAST.

376 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.

Check out Todd In The Shadows for a good overview of this band.
