Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 22

421 Phoenix

If Jethro Tull is in the top 100, phoenix should be in the top ten.

Phoenix started in as old as The Rolling Stones and still rock. The've changed from phyhaderic to heavy metal yet they have only one reson to be underrated... The're from Romania and not many people know them.

425 Story of the Year
426 The Sweet The Sweet

At the time (73 - 77) they were the best heavy rock band! Listen to Sweet fanny adams and give us a wink and you know what I mean. And by the way they had hits like Fox on the run, Action and Ballroom Blitz and they all got covered by great bands but they never reached the intension like Sweet did.

The most underrated music act of all time always dismissed as another act that never should have been let out of the bag

One of the most underrated bands. The Sweet have to be ranked higher because they rock the house with songs like Ballroom Blitz or Fox on the Run.

A great band of the 70s. It's too bad they're only ranked 302 but its good to know they're not forgotten. - AlexandeHoyte

427 Golden Earring Golden Earring

One of the best classic rock bands ever with big hits world wide and it is one of the oldest bands ever they exist since 1961

I love golden earring, and they are still a band since 1961. They formed when they were very young. George was 13 and Rinus was 15! It's a shame that they are 410th on this list, they should be in the top 50!

Come on, 438? Should be in top 30!

One of the best rock bands ever.If you have not heard them you are missing out,because all their songs are good.Out of my rock collection which is quite huge I listen to them the most.

The members were originally Liam Howlett (keyboardist and composer), Keith Flint (dancer and vocalist), Maxim (MC and vocalist), Leeroy Thornhill (dancer and occasional live keyboardist), and a female more.

I guess a lot of their music is not technically rock, but hands down my favorite band on this whole list.

418 kidding me right at least the top 100s this band is awesome

434 Tears for Fears Tears for Fears Tears for Fears are an English pop/rock band formed in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Founded after the dissolution of their first band, the mod-influenced Graduate, they were initially associated with the new wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream rock more.

I dare you to find someone who hasn't heard Mad World.

One of the most underrated bands of all time.

435 The Black Crowes The Black Crowes The Black Crowes were an American rock band formed in 1989. Their discography includes eight studio albums, four live albums and several charting singles.

You people are terrible! Marilyn Manson over Black Crowes, They Might Be Giants, and Barenaked Ladies!

Hey! Jimmy Page gave his thumbs up to this band. For that alone should place this band in the top 50 at least.

I can't believe that you put this Band so far back! They ROCK!

436 The Used

One of the most original bands in the scene. It's slightly disturbing that they are not even in the top 400, while other bands that have openly admitted that The Used have been great influences to them are. The Used is so incredibly original, which is what I think makes them stand out so much among other bands in the scene. I have never seen a band so much as attempt songs like The Bird and The Worm, I'm a Fake, and The Back of Your Mouth. These guys whip metaphors around like it came out of their back pocket. Poetic brilliance is what The Used is, with killer guitar riffs and a mindblowing sound to back those metaphors up.

Just like there stile and its what we listened to in Afghanistan

So looow so low on the list � - )) They're actually a great band...Bert McCracken has got a very emotional voice and great screaming...the drummer rocks...great lyrics and catchy songs...Very unique sound...Worth listening.

437 Warfaze Warfaze Warfaze is a Bangladeshi hard rock band. The group consists of Palash Noor (vocals), Ibrahim Ahmed Kamal (lead guitar), Sheikh Monirul Alam Tipu (drums and percussion), Samir Hafiz (Guitar), Shams Mansoor Ghani (keyboards and vocals), and Naim Haque Roger (bass) . Multiple changes have taken place in more.

Awesome rock band I like this band very very much... M/

438 Super Junior Super Junior Super Junior is a South Korean boy band. Formed in 2005 by producer Lee Soo-man of S.M. Entertainment, the group comprised a total of thirteen members at its peak.

Awesome boy-band, although they are not just a rock band but they master any type they choose to sing. Worth to check it up.

Super junior the best all the time

439 The Hives

Hives rule the planet we call Earth.

You are nothing, WE ARE HIVES.

Hives are gods. That is all fools need to know.

Punk rock kings
