Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 23

441 The Flaming Lips The Flaming Lips

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

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

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

Not one bad album in a decades long career.

Worst band ever

This band is the worst. Besides, they aren't rock.

444 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

445 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

446 Big Bang
447 Epik High
448 Mott the Hoople Mott the Hoople

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

449 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

451 Cold War Kids
452 Finch

Very Good Post Hardcore Band

453 Sky Eats Airplane

its like a kick to your head

454 Atomship

science fiction music but seriously good and addictive

455 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.

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!

456 Doro
457 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

458 Xutos & Pontap├ęs

Best portuguese rock band ever

459 Alkaline Trio Alkaline Trio Alkaline Trio is an American punk rock band from McHenry, Illinois. The band consists of guitarist and vocalist Matt Skiba, bassist and vocalist Dan Andriano, and drummer Derek Grant.

it's Matt Skiba, yo! His band has a great rock sound! -

I love this band
Beacouse Andy Biersack listen to this band too

460 Bill Haley & His Comets

He was the first one who started rock. I don't know why he isn't the King of Rock actually, because Elvis was after him and he was rock and roll. Bill Haley was soft rock in the 50's, but he was in a band. I should've put him as #1, but he is still up here at least. -

Who could be greater than the one band that started it all? Every one else is just a "Johnny come Lately". They were all original, innovative, popular and long lasting. All any one else has done is to and to or expand on what they created!

Oh, for goodness sakes. This band was one of the earliest bands in rock and was one of those who made rock popular which was what allowed it to expand and grow.
