Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 6
P! atD has THEIR OWN STYLE! Not many bands can come up with something completely original and be successful at it! - BulletStreet
How couldn't they be awesome? They had so much success when they were only 17 (most of them), they didn't sound the same with their second album, which makes them a unique band since nowadays, most of the bands always sound the same despite their years of career, for example: Green Day; and also, even though there are only two of the four members, they keep making music and amazing many people with their energy at the shows.
Panic! At The Disco is such a great band.
Brendon Urie has an amazing vocal range, his voice just demands attention
Their style is unique and with every album their is something new
Not to mention Spencer Smith is such an awesome drummer!
The one album that really stood out to me was A Fever You Can't Sweat Out, which was their first, and that alone shows all of their talent in songs like But It's Better If You Do and I Write Sins Not Tragedies (duh! ). And we're not even talking about their other albums... but nothing can beat AFYCSO!
Never say duh if you are trying to explain why someone is great to someone that doesn't find them to be the best, because it basically saying that they should already know that it is great, which they don't. - HiByeV 35 Comments
I can't describe this band with words. They're... The only musicians who can make music that makes me cry. Gazerock is not dead! And as long as it exists, I want to support the GazettE with everything I have.
THEY. ARE. FANTASTIC. Their music is amazing, on the stage they are gods. I never saw a band like GazettE, the vocal has such a wonderful voice, and he writes lyrics that make you cry. And they have the best guitar and bass solos ever...
The GazettE pays so much attention to sound quality, texture, tone, composition. They have everything from ballads to upbeat dance to plain old hard-core ROCK. Try listening to Filth in the Beauty, an old classic, or PLEDGE, which is their newest single. Time and time again they've come out with impressive albums like Disorder, NIL, Stacked Rubbish, and DIM. They've grown from a small, unknown group playing at local livehouses to playing at the Tokyo Dome just this December. The GazettE is the fastest rising Jrock group in Japan - perhaps even in the world - and they deserve every last bit of fame they get.
GAZEROCK IS NOT DEAD! JAPAN REPRESENT! - tiffanyho
They are just...AWESOME!V 286 Comments
It seems that most people who vote on this list don't know about FZ at all. Great intelligent lyrics, incredible music, in many styles (we call this: Zappa style). Most underrated guitar player. Fantastic live entertainment. And also: the good humour on stage. Just take a look of youtube videos in the 1973 era: Jaw dropping musicianship. Great musicians played with FZ, but he made them performing to their best. 63 official albums. No compromise. No bull. No substitute. Still sound fresh after all those years. Thank you Frank.
sorry, but Zappa in 171 place? Has anyone voting in this pole ever listened music or they just hear. Zappa is an innovator in music, from music to lyrics to stage show. He was a real musician who had knowlledge of synthesis and of his instrument. I see groups in this pole that are not bad but they have no history to back up their existence.
NUTS! Zappa is only here because most people have never heard his terrifyingly awesome music. Frank was a musically savant so far ahead of his time and beyond us normal humans, its difficult to capture his genius in a few words. I'll just say WOW! Thanks so much Frank. You were the Mozart of your time.
Should be higher. Love Zappa - JiorlV 14 Comments
I can't believe how DEATH is so underrated. Chuck Schuldiner is one of the best song writers ever.
Because death sucks. Sucks harder than cannibal corpse or deicide. I love its album called "Human" though. - awanshrestha
There probably not very high because there not well known outside the death metal community which is pretty underground when compared to the Beatles
Where is the Death Metal genre when they were here?
Who is it's pioneer and main progenitor?
What was the name of it's metal Genre? ? Metal
Yes you got it...
Hey don't you see the name think again...
Why tf is this in 85th?!?V 3 Comments
If Dimebag Darrel wouldn't have died and if the band wouldn't separate they would be the best. Still, they deserve top 3, not 10
Pantera is the greatest band that has ever existed. No band will ever be better. If dimebag wasn't dead and they were still together today, they would top all the charts guaranteed. I hope that the pantera experience is never forgotten. We miss you Dimebag
Pantera was the band who saved Metal/Rock during the 90's! Why they so low? Vulagar Display Of Power and Cowboys From Hell have helped shape up a lot of the bands higher up the list and yet everyone's forgetting it! PANTERA RULE Metallica! I'm also disappointed in not seeing Machine Head after going through 5 pages. That's just wrong. PANTERA deserve top 3 AT LEAST for saving a genre that nearly DIED in the 90's! PANTERA FOR LIFE!
HOW is Panic! at the Sellouts above Pantera? - christangrantV 19 Comments
I don't think I have to say something about them... Just listen to them and you'll know why I was so shocked no one thought about them!
Come On guys! R.E. M on 123? They made awesome songs for decades! Love them.
they created they're own style.
What are they doing at 101. place? Should be in Top 20. One of the most influential bands ever.V 29 Comments
My favorite band forever. They should be in the top 10. Trenton Woodley is an amazing singer and the rest of the band is amazing to. Listen to their song A Fire on a Hill.
They deserve to be higher than this. Their song "I Am" is the best
I can't believe you people don't see how great incubus is. Even if their new stuff is kinda soft, anything they make is better than anything a combined effort of all these other bands can make.
Incubus represente the real music, and I just wish that Incubus hit The LEAD of The Greatest Band EVER
Love the instrument, whether rock or slow it's still easy listening. The lyrics also represent our daily life, very match. The best vocal ever with gorgeous vocalist
Incubus with how they change modern rock is just flawlessV 8 Comments
MUCH greater than the Rolling Stones - should be at least occupying their spot on this list. Ray D. is the most sublime and humanistic of all rock writers - incredibly relatable in any era. He always composed from a strangely middle-aged perspective that sounds better the older you get, giving their music an amazing timelessness. If you've only heard You Really Got Me you are missing one of rock's greatest unsung catalogs.
Old band but incredible! The best band you will ever hear! So much better than all the other bands! Could listen to the all day everyday! FANTASTIC BAND!
I know that this list includes almost every band ever, but the fact that the Kinks wrote so many famous riffs that were copied later (I'm looking at you Green Day and The Doors) should put them near the top of any list of rock bands. Long live the original mates-garage-based band.
Consistently good lyrics. Social commentary, self revelation and some fun rocking'. Not a synthetic studio band like the Beatles became, nor a cop-out like the disco Stones crap or a drop-dead too loud (hearing aid for Pete and ear plugs for Roger) over amped like The Who. (I CAN HEAR YOU, BUT WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE HEARING)
Still a contender in the top Five for the mid 60s and early 70s.
The Rasmus is a great Rock band. They make beautiful music with lyrics written by heart. They put all their feelings and full energy into their songs. Besides The Rasmus are even very kind as just persons. They make you feel like (at least to me)that you are still someone and they make you feel happy. They are such kindhearted persons who create wonderful music what touches the deepest part in your heart and also make you to sing a long and Rock around. Without them, there wouldn't be such an amazing, unique, sensitive and beautiful band. They really deserve it to be on number 1. The Rasmus forever!
They are just perfect guys! Yeah, I understand! Scorpions, AC DC, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Metallica! They are great! Wonderful! But The Rasmus are something unique! And I Assume that when they will have a 30 years old carrier they will be better than now! In my opinion of course! They should be higher! And I'm sure there are many people that they agree with me!
They should be in the top ten at least! I love them with all my heart, they have the best energy ever in their music! Just go to a TR concert and you'll see what I'm talking about! People are always criticize them... They don't understand the main! The Rasmus are so underrated and misunderstood! They deserve more success and the most of success! The Rasmus 4eva!
The Rasmus... Are the best friend when you are in pain... Their lyrics are awesome... So pure.. So deep... So magical... They deserve a spot at least better than nickelback!V 33 Comments
Nine Inch Nails, comprised of Trent Reznor, has got to be the most original band out there. His dark, self loathing, and ambient beats are something completely unheard of when he started out. Trent's not in it for the money, he just does what comes to him and he'll always be remembered for that. In short, NIN rocks!
Nine Inch Nail's lyrics can connect with most people in the world, on a personal level.
Nine Inch Nails is the band that psychologically reaches the fragile heart of human being. When a heart broken, they'll get it fixed.
How are they not higher on the list...V 12 Comments
Motley is the definition of rock n roll! Those guys live and breathe rock n roll! Excess is best, that's their motto. I still cannot believe those guys are still around to tell all the stories. I have been a huge fan since I was 5 years old. And all original members are still doing it together after more than thirty years of decadence. It's very rare I love motley.
80?! OMG... How about Number 1?! Come on.. The ENTIRE Feelgood album? Girls Girls Girls.. Kick start my heart.. Voters are sad...
Seriously?! This low? What other band could defy the grim reaper on many occasions, argue to the point of threatening each others lives, and STILL kick ass any time they are onstage or in studio? Motley Crue is the best rock band in history! They are my SAINTS!
Motley Crue is the best damn rock band known to man this website is a joke. This is an insult to Motley Crue. They are not #137V 38 Comments
I love Triumph and I think they should be in the top 30 with all the other bands I like because it is insult that great bands like this one are under stupid **** that no one as even heard of like seethe and that this entire thing is based off of some **** votes and that bands like seethe should be above any other bands.
This is astonishing how Triumph is not higher on this list. They're the perfect power trio, and each of them are among the best in their respective fields, ESPECIALLY Rik Emmett. Seriously folks, if you think any other band but Triumph stole the show at US'83, you're simply wrong.
Love Triumph Rik is my fave guitarist. One of the best Canadian bands along with April Wine and Rush.
The pinnacle of live, collaborative music with ultra-versatile, sensitive players who wrote their own script and did exactly what they wanted to do. No Band, no Eagles.
One of the three most important rock bands in history.
They must've taken a while to think of their band name...
Great CANADIAN band.V 5 Comments
Thousand Foot Krutch is the best hard rock band ever. First of all Thousand Foot Krutch is a Christian band so they have great lyrics. Second Trevor Mcnevan is a great singer, screamer, yeller, rapper, and song writer. Third, Thousand Foot Krutch is very unique and has a lot of different genres including Rock, Hard Rock, Hip Hop, Ballad, Classic Rock, Modern Rock, Heavy Metal, Pop Rock, Rap, and Punk Rock. Forth, Welcome to the Masquerade is one of the best Rock albums in the world. And fifth Puppet is the one of the best songs in the world it a great rock song and a great rap song.
I think Thousand Foot Krutch deserves a higher spot than 341. What don't they have that a great rock band should have?
By the way, why isn't Relient K or Hawk Nelson on this list? They are awesome rock bands, probably even better than Thousand Foot Krutch.
Thousand Foot krutch is like Eminem, Linkin Park, and Skillet all combined. Except better! TFK rocks!
This band is just AMAZING. Trevor Mcnevon's voice is splendid. Their guitar riffs are amazing. The quality if their music is marvelous. Their songs such as welcome to the masquerade, shook, move, war of change etc are impressive and the music juts gets to you. If you haven't listened to them I suggest you should. Basically everyone over here just votes for the most popular bands and not the good one and listens to the popular ones only and hence bands like tfk are underrated.
This band is one of my favorites - wrestsV 12 Comments
You've got to be kidding me. A band that influenced almost every decent grunge band, as well as multiple different alternative rock bands that would go on to influence even more bands, and you can't do it any more respect than 113. this world and everything on it.
The Pixies are the Van Gogh of alternative rock and sadly won't be appreciated until aliens discover their music a thousand years from now. Without these guys, half of the Top 50 bands on this list wouldn't even exist. Bands that have given their due include Nirvana and Radiohead.
The Pixies were not the most successful band commercially or on this list. As the average person is an idiot this is one of the many reasons why they are the greatest and coolest band ever...
The Pixies are a top 10 band at the very least, this whole website is a popularity contest unfortunately.V 18 Comments
