Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 23

441 My Passion
442 The Blackout

The Blackout, another fantastic band with front man Sean Smith screaming out the vocals and Gavin by his side, also with great vocals.

These guys are awesome, Sean Smith is one of the best screamers there are, Gav is a fantastic singer, Bob and Matthew are both really good guitarists, Rhys is insane on the bass and Snoz is a fantastic drummer. They are really under appreciated and should be a lot higher and miles ahead of the Jonas Brothers and The Strokes.

443 The Black Lips

All their songs have a certain fun element that really captures the reason for music. To have fun. -

444 The Flaming Lips The Flaming Lips

Best American underground / mainstream band of the last 20 years. Can't pick a favorite album cause there are so many!

They're weird like me. Plus Steven Drozd was a major heroin adict the quit cold turkey one day and never had a relapse. -

Do you realize... they are one of the greatest bands America has ever seen fit to gift us with.

Love love love The Lips.

445 Streetlight Manifesto

The greatest ska punk band of all time. Most talent that ever came out of New Jersey. -

Greatest band of all time.

446 Buck Tick

Why is Buck Tick so down on the list?! Atsushi Sakurai has one of the best voices I've heard (not just in Japanese rock, but general rock) and their songs are so amazing!

They're really one of the World's greatest bands. Their style changed a lot, but they've never lost even a fraction of their great talent and creativity. - saaarsdej

447 DBSK

I'm a fan of rock and K-pop, but what are DBSK, Super Junior, Big Bang, and Epik High doing here? Laugh out loud

448 Big Bang
449 Epik High
450 Mott the Hoople Mott the Hoople

Why is Mot the Hoople so low? This is one of my favorite bands! They are so much better than Led Zealand. (I don't know how to spell that)

The 528 bands ahead of Mott must be really good. Not.

451 Hawkwind

These Space-Rock pioneers have been touring and producing albums for almost 45 years, building a legacy which includes "Brainstorm," "Silver Machine," "Sonic Attack," "Uncle Sam's on Mars," and "AeroSpace-Age Inferno" among their dozens of classic non-hits. Ask any Hawkwind fan their favorite album, then watch as they cannot even condense the list to their ten favorites! - IgnoreThis

Hawkwind are a truly awesome band. One of the very first to venture into the genre of "Space Rock". I hope Hawkwind will always be remembered for their unique blend of hippy and punk culture.

I bet a few people know this but Motorhead's Lemmy was in this band before he got fired in 75 - LedZepp81

as far as instrumental talent, nothing else comes close

453 Cold War Kids
454 Finch

Very Good Post Hardcore Band

455 Sky Eats Airplane

its like a kick to your head

456 Atomship

science fiction music but seriously good and addictive

457 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!

458 Doro
459 Mudvayne Mudvayne Mudvayne was an American heavy metal band from Peoria, Illinois formed in 1996. Originally from Bloomington, Illinois, they are known for their sonic experimentation, innovative album art, face and body paint, masks and uniforms.

Definitely one of the greatest bands out there and they deserve more credit.

My favorite song by them is "Do What You Do". - Gigan

460 Xutos & Pontap├ęs

Best portuguese rock band ever
