121 ZZ Top ZZ Top ZZ Top is an American rock band that formed in 1969 in Houston, Texas. The band is composed of bassist and lead vocalist Dusty Hill, guitarist and lead vocalist Billy Gibbons, and drummer Frank Beard.

ZZ Top sucks! They make the same stupid songs about girls and money over and over again!

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!

This band sucks, they should be at the bottom.

They are trash and and have no talent

122 Motorhead Motorhead Motörhead were an English heavy metal band formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer, and songwriter Ian Fraser "Lemmy" Kilmister, who was the sole constant member; guitarist and songwriter Larry Wallis; and drummer Lucas Fox. The band's harsh vocals and fast paced tempos helped inspire speed metal and ...read more.

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.

The heart & soul of british speed metal, RIP Ian 'Lemmy' Kilmister

123 Seether Seether Seether are a South African hard rock band founded in May 1999 in Pretoria, South Africa. The band originally performed under the name Saron Gas until 2002, when they adopted the Seether name.

They are the BEST! Think they actually saved my life a few times, whenever I'm pissed off or sad I just play some of their songs. They're way to unknown!

For being from South Africa, a place of more native and traditional music, they help bring great hard rock and relatable lyrics and melodies to their listeners. I believe they deserve to be listened to and be agreed to be top 100 at the least.

Seether brings a new genre to rock, something no other band can bring to the party! So many of the bands above them are just copycats, taking what someone else did, mimicking it, and getting famous. Seether is totally original, and a powerful rock band.

Seether is by far the best band, of any genre to come out of SA. They should definitely be in the top 100.

Can't believe I hadn't seen this band on the list before... They are AWESOME. Just try and listen some of their best songs

The sadness will never end, diamonds aren't forever, and it never ends must hears

Try to listen to Anthem, really good song that in my opinion kinda sums them up. plus its really up-beating so it makes you wanna go dance and jump around

125 Chevelle Chevelle Chevelle is an American rock band that formed in 1995 in the Chicago suburb of Grayslake, Illinois. The band was originally composed of brothers: Pete Loeffler, Sam Loeffler and Joe Loeffler.

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

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.

They should be in the top 100! No song they've made has ever been bad! They're way better than some of these other bands!

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.
Any person who considers themselves a Metal ...more

don't let the name fool you. very talented

CHIODOS IS AMAZING. NOTHING MORE TO SAY.

128 The Killers The Killers The Killers is an American rock band formed in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2001, by Brandon Flowers and Dave Keuning.

Tokio Hotel is voted over The Killers. Really? Who on earth thinks that Tokio Hotel is better than The Killers? I know I don't. And neither should you.

They are one of the few alt bands that will be remembered through time - Gravityman321

I love their catchy sound and great original music. Already rock legends!

How can you just shun The Killers to become just another rubbish, far down the list, wannabe but I can't manage it band? They should be at the top for sure!

129 They Might Be Giants They Might Be Giants They Might Be Giants is an American alternative rock band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

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.

WHY...

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'

In the metal scene: a bit overrated

Outside the metal scene: underrated

Four outstanding musicians including two geniuses - Jan Akkerman and Thijs Van Leer. What a band. The brilliantly insane Hocus Pocus, the majesty of Cathedrale de Strasbourg, the magical Sylvia, Tommy, House Of The King.

Better than Avenged Sevenfold for sure..

Lol this band sucks. Only the non-savage emo losers listen to this crap.

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?

The Cars are one of my favorite bands because they still sound fresh and have a really great sound. People obviously forgot about them because they should be much higher!

One of my favorite bands back in the 80's and still today. Been listening to them lately on YouTube.

People forgot about the cars obviously. needs to be way higher up

Another great Band, that has been over looked!
I just can't believe this list at all! It sucks and I think that most people will agree!

About time I saw them here, I went through pages and pages of other bands just to find this at 150... Not right at, deserves to be in the top 20 or at least 50, Chris Cornell has one of the best voices rock has ever heard, from up high to the the raspy low voice, just too good!

Audioslave is the rock of all rock... Tom Morello and former lead singer of Soundgarden Chris Cornel

They are just so good. Every single song is a hit. They should be at least top 25 - Battlegun

Rip chris..
