Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 19

361 Love Love

All you have to do is listen to Forever Changes and you'll know why this band should be higher on the list. Arthur Lee was Jim Morrison's idol in mid 60's LA. Arthur just hated to travel and never wanted to leave LA. That is why most people outside of LA have never heard of them. When Bryan Maclean and Arthur were together through 1967 they were magic. Arthur also jammed with Jimi Hendrix before anyone ever heard of Jimi Hendrix. Yes, in LA he was that influential.

Just watched the movie 'Love Story' and got all my long-held opinions endorsed! That cut of the band that made Forever Changes were just something else. Still the most beautiful and chilling rock album ever made!

"Love" are the best band of all time and "Forever Changes" the best album ever, of course. Arthur Lee is one of the few real geniuses of the modern music. - Mercury

362 Xutos & Pontapés

365 Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

The best band of all time. Purely Gothic and So good when it comes to death metal. Symphonic and pure evil.

Best of the best when it comes to gothic metal. COF will always be in my top 3 bands of all time. Their music set you in a different mood. Numerous hits. Dani Filth (Lead Vocals) - Can anybody scream better than him? Absolutely not. Paul Allender (Lead Guitar) - Just listen to his chords. I am sure you will forget so called other songs. Martin Marthus Škaroupka (Drums) - Listen to Lilith Immaculate to know his talent. Other band members too are exceptional. Their music is the taste of REAL MAN. But they are the most underrated gothic metal band of all time. I am sure, no one can beat their kind of music no matter which part of Universe any band come from. I simply love and adore COF

367 UFO UFO UFO are an English rock band that was formed in 1969. They became a transitional group between early hard rock and heavy metal and the new wave of British heavy metal.

my youth!

310... Sadness.

This british band to me was better than Zep or the Who! Their hard rock sound was original and melodic without being
Wimpy like Journey or Styx etc... Albums Lights Out, Obsession, Force It and the brilliant Live album Strangers in the
Night is one of the best Live albums of all time. Their later albums like No Place to Run and Wild Willing and Innocent
Were also great even though guitarist Shenker had left. The bands newest albums also continue the hard rock melodic
Sound that most bands can't even come close! Vinnie Moore was a good replacement and has held his own. I've seen
Them numerous times from early 75 to 2009 and they still can rock any new band out! Should be in the RHOF!

368 Manowar Manowar Manowar is an American heavy metal band from New York City, New York. Formed in 1980, the group is known for lyrics based on fantasy and mythology.

Because they can make music nobody else can create. That's why I think they should be on top 5. Manowar is awesome! Manowar is one of the best rock bands in the world.

371 Bad Company Bad Company

Good lovin' gone bad baby!... From what I've seen from the rankings... Some ranking gone bad, as well... But I'm not a teenager voting... Me thinks this is a much younger poll... Cream, Hendrix, Ten Years After, Deep Purple, The Doors, Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc. are all but lost with the new generations... But, if you're part of the younger crowd and haven't checked out the 60's & 70's pioneers, be sure to... !

This band needs to be higher! I am 13 and I can rock out to rock and roll fantasy all day. Plus, how is System of a down almost 400 spots ahead? This should be way higher, plus, who can't love the song Bad Company"

I'm a 9th grader, and this is one of my all time favorite bands! Bad company, feel like making love, rock and roll fantasy, ready to love, shooting star, should be way higher!

One of the greatest bands of all time with a great lead vocalist in Paul Rodgers and they sit 418 on this list. This is a sad sad day and is a sad sad list.

372 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

374 Survivor Survivor Survivor is an American rock band formed in Chicago in 1978 by Jim Peterik. The band achieved its greatest success in the 1980s, garnering many charting singles, especially in the United States.

It was one of the best band than ever singing, his Rock is clasical and has efect in the movie URrra! To Survivor the best American band of 80st

Survivor at #930? They're not the best, but they're pretty good. They should be at least in the top 100. - thetoptens21

Eye of the Tiger is the best in workout songs, and it improved Rocky III drastically.

They are a fantastic band and are WAY MORE than Eye of the Tiger, which isn't even one of the better songs. - ATiM

375 Underoath Underoath
376 Miyavi Miyavi

Japanese. What more could you ask for?

Why is Miyavi so down on the list though? I mean, he's not the greatest singer (let's just say that he's a better guitarrist than a singer...) but he's pretty popular, he's crazy and he kicks butts.

377 Stryper
378 Camel Camel

This band needs to be a lot higher up the list.

379 Luna Sea

This band should be at least in the top 10. They sound different from any other band, you can search but you'll never find a similar band! All the members are talented and contribute very much to the band, it's not like some bands which have just one musician creating all the songs.

One of the legends of J-rock, it'll be a waste to not be up there with the best

380 Theory of a Deadman Theory of a Deadman Theory of a Deadman is a rock band from Delta, British Columbia, Canada. Formed in 2001, the band is currently signed to Roadrunner Records as well as 604 Records.

Theory of a Deadman is such a good band! Although a lot of my friends think they sound like Nickelback, but they are an Awesome band!

Very good, the best band ever, I've never listen so good song in my whole live, the best song is out of my head

This is way too far down the list for these guys, guess its because they are Canadian
