361 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

362 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.

Music, vocals, and horns

363 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

364 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!

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.

365 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"

Should be in top 5

366 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!

367 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

370 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

372 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.

Potf on 370...R you kidding me!

373 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.

374 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..

375 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.

They're The Best Pop Rock/Punk Band Right Up With Green Day And Blink 182, They Should Be Higher! - VideoGamefan5

376 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.

377 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

379 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.
