Absolutely love "Youth Gone Wild". Heard it first on Guitar Hero On Tour. Amazing!

Skid Row is a great band with great music. Youth Gone Wild, 18 and life and slave to the grind

Great band and great powerful songs with meaning. They should be in top 10!

Why not in top 10 at least

443 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

Known for their ethereal sound, frontman Jónsi Birgisson's falsetto vocals, and the use of bowed guitar, the band's music is also noticeable for its incorporation of classical and minimalist aesthetic elements. more.

One of the best bands of all time, no doubt.

447 Brand New

One of the absolute greatest bands around in the past ten years. Their lyrics have become increasingly more powerful with each record they put out, and truly know how to put amazing songs together.

Um excuse me what

448 Wolfmother Wolfmother more.

These guys should be way higher!

449 Millencolin

Pennybridge Pioneers, check out the songs A-Ten and No Cigar. Not so much rock but definitely a top punk band turned rock in some areas. 10/10 would binge millencolin again

Best Skatepunk band ever!

451 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.

452 Fun

Modern band. They have some great classical alternative music. It is understandable to say that they do not deserve top 10. They should get top 100 at least, for being the one of the most prolific modern bands.

453 Three Dog Night

These guys are are one of my favorite bands of all time. Where would we be without Joy to the World, Never been to Spain, Shambala, An Old Fashioned Love Song, Mama told Me, The Family of Man, One Man Band,... And a host of others? The world would be a different place without them. There songs lift you up and

One of the Greatest Bands EVER, come on give me a break, they are way better than you give them credit for!

They should absolutely be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

454 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

455 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.

Hives are like Green Day if Green Day had any actual talent.

456 Big Country

First three albums are undying classics. NOT a one hit wonder - music of epic emotional sweep and power. Like the other poster said, songs that always stir and stay in your heart. Thanks Stuart.

Still love Big Country ; music that never gets old and is untainted by irony or cynicism. Power in the best sense.

Stuart Adamson is the U.K. S response to jimi Hendrix said John Peel. He is just simply amazing. This is for the best bands not the most popular and Big Country certainly is the best. With albums the crossing, steeltown and the seer they revolutionized, at least, the way I listen to and like Rock music. Bassist Tony Butler and Mark Brezicki are just as good, and the best in my opinion. And bruce is all around cool. This band may never be in the top 100 but they will always number one in my and many others hearts.

Best Scottish bands ( for me ) : #3 Simple Minds, #2 Mogwai, #1 Big Country.

458 Saint Asonia Saint Asonia Saint Asonia is a Canadian rock band consisting of former Three Days Grace frontman Adam Gontier, Mike Mushok, Corey Lowery, and Rich Beddoe.
459 The Stranglers

Pub rock, Punk rock and a whole lot more. Who can forget No More Heroes, Golden Brown, Strange Little Girl. And then the darker Raven, Down in the Sewer, Nuclear Device, Men In Black, La Folie. And more beautiful ballads like Midnight Summer Dream, Joy De Viva, Lies and Deception. And famous covers Walk On By, 96 Tears. And so much more. Original brilliant controversial.

What a shame, ignorance does not justify stupidity!

Best band ever, still going strong

They had danger, humour, darkness, attitude...and they could play and write a decent song...probably the best British band EVER, a great songwriting duo in Cornwell and Burnell, a brilliant keyboard player and a moody drummer. Do people really remember so little? Oasis played at being tough and moody... The Stranglers were for real.

460 Death Cab For Cutie

Death Cab For Cutie is an innovative band. You never know what's going to come from them next and they always make the best they can.
