Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 6
Wow 70th this list is a joke
They should have System Of A Down's spot on the list.
Dis is my favorite band.. Even kirk hammet wore slayer shirt on their tour.. When Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich was rushed to hospital with a mysterious illness, and was unable to perform at 2004 European tour, Dave Lombardo(Slayer's drummer)replace Ulrich.. Children of bodom n cradle of filth also played slayer's song as a tribute..2 times Grammy Award Winner for 'Best Metal Performance'
Isn't Slayer a thrash band? This is rock band list. These guys are way too intense for simple little rock ears. - frankmartinV 21 Comments
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
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
Oh my god this is the best band ever started! I'm actually really surprised because The Red and Send the Pain Below were up near the top of lots of rock charts when they came out. This band has better songs than those two! The amount of great songs they have is astounding and I never get tired of listening to Pete Loeffler's vocals. He can hit every note with precision and he is one of the top 10 male singers of all time. The guitar riffs are hard to get bored of. Some of the bands on this list aren't even real rock bands, like Panic at the Disco. This band should be top 10. So should Tool
Chevelle are one of the best rock bands of today! Sci-Fi Crimes is an instant classic.
They have been doing so good, from the first time I hear there music I really fall in love especially with the track I GET IT, it also sound so good.
CheVelle, a 3 piece band who have consistently created some of the best hard rock music since 1999.
On Chevelle's 2001 album "Wonder What's Next", the guitar tones from Pete Loeffler's PRS/Mesa combos are still unmatched. Chevelle's earlier albums (Wonder What's Next thru Hats Off to the Bull) showcase Loeffler's high pitched, melodic vocals which are complimented perfectly by his low tuned (Mostly drop B and A#) guitar tracks.
Chevelle's later albums (La Gargola and The North Corridor) feature the band after front man Pete Loeffler ditched his iconic PRS guitars to expiriment with other guitars (mainly rare Fender baritones), along with different amplifiers, and effects. Although incorporating more fuzz and reverberating effects, Chevelle kept true to the music style that set them apart from other bands of it's genre throughout the early 2000's to present day.
Chevelle should be more famous, but in a way I'm glad they aren't.

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
Pioneers of HM
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!
Why isn't panic at the disco in the top 30 come on peepsV 39 Comments
Lol this band sucks. Only the non-savage emo losers listen to this crap.
This band is 100% garbage.
They deserve to be in top 10 at least. I used to love them, and I am still big fan! - Tesu_Cassells
I love this band even though danny left they are still a good bandV 10 Comments
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
Why is Opeth not on this list? Mikael Akerfeldt is the most talented musician I've ever heard (followed closely by John Petrucci). If you have never heard an Opeth song, you are doing yourself an injustice. Their music spans so many genres they have something for almost anybody. Definitely the most underrated band of all time.
Their constant switch to melodic and heavier styles of metal sound amazing, and they are definitely one of the best metal bands from the past few decades.
Ok... So I had to actually put them on here? Listen to Blackwater Park, so dark and atmospheric, so heavy and mellow. Just a perfect blend of soul and brutality
Opeth being this low on this list makes me so sad.V 5 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.
I like some Triumph but they come off as a generic rock band with mostly forgettable albums. - frankmartin
OMG dudes look at this comment, seriously I dare you. These guys are like one of the only bands I know of today that actually play decent rock music. LIKE REALLY?!? these guys are the best rock band out today and just need to get some recognition for that. Please take some time to listen to quality music. They Give off like 4 or 5 genres. Maybe thats why there on so many lists. The Strokes are a great band that are just not heard of, making better music the frickin Metallica who should just be at a stupid metal site instead of rock. Really guys? just listen to the strokes a little bit and you will never go back. Every one of there albums keep getting better. Makind covers of a bunch of magazines and people are still to ignorant to try to listen to them. Really? Just listen to the song undercover of darkness, or razor blade or last nite. Great songs, great band, give these guys some credit
I can't ACTUALLY BELIEVE HOW FAR DOWN THE LIST THEY ARE, THIS IS THE WORST THING I'VE EVER SEEN. The Strokes are one of the best bands of all time and I'm not just personally saying that - they create music for all moods, all people, with all tempos and pitches and instruments and wow sorry I just can't get over the number 87. Songs ranging from Games to Soma to Tap Out.. Completely different yet the same in some ways.. I will never forget this band and they deserve to be in the Top 10 for sure. Wow
BEST BAND OF ALL TIME! If you like music you like these guys its as simple as that. How they are ranked 110 on this list is beyond me. They're number 1 in my book. With songs like NYC Cops and Barely Legal they are the best thing to happen since the Beatles!
There are really few people left in the industry of music who could still be called artists and they are one of them. thank you for providing us with beautiful musicV 22 Comments
They have beautiful personality! Through their music, they save lives!
They have the coolest fan base than any other co-fans I know.
Come on people! My Chemical Romance number 21 that's just not fair! They are inspirational, amazing and just well amazing! They have songs that people can really relate to and connect. They are life savers and everyone should recognize them for the true heroes they really are. The MCRmy are behind you all the way, keep running and we'll stay ugly.
Proud Member Of the MCRmy Xxx
My Chemical Romance was perfect! They all are amazing! Love them to death
Best band ever even nowV 326 Comments
The Black Keys is a wondrous band, and to me, Attack and Release is their best album, with Brothers as a close second. Attack and Release is when the Black keys decided to add more musical complexity with different instruments and more interesting production than their earlier things, though they have always made great music.
Lol 106 smh. This band is just TWO GUYS. And they still blow away most current rock.
These guys are going to go down in history folks. Easily top 5 current bands and that is being conservative. I honestly can't think of another band still making music who could be better than them.
Easily one of the greatest rock bands ever. Give them like 5 more years and people are going to be comparing them to Led Zeppelin
Best real rock band out there today. Great lyrics, great all round sound. No fake just old school rock.V 16 Comments
Haha yeah right, motorhead is apparently the 294th greatest rock band in the world... Right?
people are stupid these days, I'm 18 years old and still rocking out to classic motorhead everyday
The best rock band on the world.
Only way to feel the noise is when it's good and loud...
Go and see them finish a set with Bomber, Ace of Spades and Overkill
Then compare it to any other 15 minute setlist from the band you rated.

Ronnie James Dio - forever in our hearts -
Wow, really, 96TH! Dio has the greatest singer, and they had 3 whole albums where all the songs were perfect! How many other bands on this list can honestly pull that off?
Please tell me, why aren't this and Deep purple tied for 1st place?
Best band ever...V 12 Comments
I can't believe ZZ Top didn't even make the top 100! There was pop on the list above these guys! They created some iconic guitar riffs and are one of the top names in southern rock!
Zz top is probably 1 of the most influential rock bands and quietly crack out hit after hit... Don't believe me try getting front row tickets for 1 of there concerts
ZZ TOP one of my all time favorites. If this was a list for bands that created some of the most iconic and enduring radio anthems then ZZ TOP would be high on the list. - frankmartin
They are trash and and have no talent
Clearly you're just a teenage girl who sits and acts like Panic! At The Disco and My Chemical Romance changed the world. - HardRockSamV 12 Comments
I think rob zombie is great and awesome but holly cow is he far down on the list this proves this list is all opinions
Rob Zombie is my favorite singer and he's music is amazing and I love his new song Get High
I love the song Dragula! One of the best songs ever written!
Overrated. Worst lyrics ever.V 5 Comments
I'm pretty sure they would be considered one one the best rock bands of all time if they would have gotten the fame they deserved.
They used to be great, now they're making music for preschoolers (literally).
The only song I really know by them is "Istanbul", but they sound really good.
