Best Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 7

121 Audioslave Audioslave ...read more.

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..

122 Rainbow Rainbow

They are the best, it's a shame that this band is so underrated.

Ritchie Blackmore is much better than Jimmy Page and Dio is the best metal singer and the 2nd best singer ever (No one can touch Freddie Mercury of course).

Let's not forget Cozy Powell's insane drumming and we have the most talented rock band in history.

Rainbow are influential as well as Ritchie created Neo - Classical music that would later be used by giants like Yngwie Malmsteen.

The list is bull because some childish bands like Bring Me the Horizon and Linkin Park are ranked much higher than the true giants and classic bands, For me Rainbow, Queen and Rush are the best. - IronMaidenFan666

Blackmore is a mental legend this band made an impact before they played a note. Bonnet sounds like no other, instantly recognizable.

The most underrated band in the history of rock. During the Dio years, their music was legendary. They had made some of the best songs ever.

Definitely underrated. Their first songs rocks

123 Dio Dio Dio was an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 and led by vocalist Ronnie James Dio, after he left Black Sabbath with intentions to form a new band with fellow former Black Sabbath member, drummer Vinny Appice.

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...

124 Godsmack Godsmack Godsmack is an American rock band from Lawrence, Massachusetts, formed in 1995. The band is composed of founder, frontman and songwriter Sully Erna, guitarist Tony Rombola, bassist Robbie Merrill, and drummer Shannon Larkin.

They may not be super popular but are definitely under-rated! They kick ass!

True! They kick ass! Definitely underrated... Hope they rise up soon to what they deserve

One of the most underrated bands of all time. I think they should definitely be higher on this list. If you haven't listened to them already I highly recommend that you do. Also, if you just listened to Godsmack and denounced them as an Alice in Chains copycat, you're wrong, go listen to their other stuff like Faceless or Awake.

125 Bob Marley and the Wailers Bob Marley and the Wailers Bob Marley and the Wailers were a Jamaican reggae band and, earlier, a ska vocalist group created by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer.

Some say that Pink Floyd is the most influential band of all time, this is debatable. But,BMW is the band that embraces more culture than any band ever assembled (so far in history) just to be objective.

I really think these guys should be number one. Bob Marley and the Wailers aren't just a band. They give people hope when there is none. Their lyrics are so touching. And even someone with serious depression would be happy if they listened to their songs.

Has anyone heard of Saxon, no, that's what I thought. BMW should be in the top ten (along with the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and those guys).

Why is this 122! Wake up people

126 Dead Kennedys Dead Kennedys Dead Kennedys are an American hardcore punk band formed in San Francisco, California in 1978. The band was one of the first American hardcore bands to make a significant impact in the United Kingdom.

Probably the scariest sounding band ever. And it fits them well too. The stuff Jello Biafra wrote is can mess with the sane part of your brain. Their lyrics had sarcastic dark humor that were extremely brilliant and focused on major social problems in America. Jello's voice is so weird and unique too. And East Bay Ray is a great guitarist. Add to that very good bass playing and crazy drum beats that will send your already spinning head spinning even faster.

A lot of their lyrics are still relevant.

Not just greatest punk band in the world but also greatest band

Great band
Truly underrated these days

127 Mastodon Mastodon Mastodon is an American heavy metal band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in early 2000 and composed of bassist Troy Sanders, guitarists Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher and drummer Brann Dailor.

Along with High On Fire, the absolute kings of all they survey. Every album is damned amazing.

The fact that this band is 200 spots behind that atrocious band Bring Me The Horizon is sad

Everyone in this band is awesome, all their albums are awesome, ergo MASTODON IS AWESOME.

I totally agree this band should be way higher than some of these rookie bands.

129 Heartist Heartist Heartist is an American rock band that started in Southern California in 2011. They formed in early 2011 after guitarists Jonathan Gaytan and Tim Koch left their band, found Bryce Beckley, who had also left his band, Evan Ranallo and Matt Marquez, who was playing with Norma Jean.
130 Motley Crue Motley Crue Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

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 #137

The best symphonic rock band in the world, worthy to be the best anywhere. You did not listen to their music? So do it! And Within Temptation becomes part of your life!

I think Chris Jericho has very good voice,... Fozzy is one of the best heavy metal band ever

Fozzy is the best there is the best there was and the best it ever will be... There deserve a higher place

The only reason people know this band is because of Chris Jericho

Fozzy is ver y good band. Their newest album sounds like oldshcool metal. But at live session Chris Jericho can't sing like on record.

137 Dragonforce Dragonforce DragonForce are a British power metal band based in London, England. Formed in 1999, the group are known for their long and fast guitar solos, fantasy-themed lyrics, and electronic sounds in their music to add to their retro video game-influenced sound.

Just hear their songs.
-Herman li is the best on guitar.
List of musics to hear:
-FURY OF THE STORM
-OPERATION GROUND AND POUND
-TROUGH FIRE AND FLAMES

212th place? Everyone in this whole band has talent, and it shows in their shredding in every single song. This list isn't that good anyway; bands like Metallica and a few others in the top are pure metal. Dragonforce is a mix of power metal and rock.

A great band who does a great mix of rock and power metal. They actually take time to create a good rhythm, lyrics, and solos, unlike many other bands that just scream into microphones, and just wail on the guitar.

I'm laughing at the name...

One of the very few bands that could write the same style of music for almost two decades and still make each album feel like a different experience.

This band is amazing!

The best horror-punk band ever!!!!
jerry only is the best - yoponcho

Thanks to my uncle who showed me this band, I got into them. I'm wearing a Misfits shirt at the time of this comment. - Mumbizz01

One of the most influential punk bands ever but I hate it when people wear shirts they don't even know about

Danzig in the Mistfits is brilliant, and the lyrics to the songs are always - interesting.

140 Psychostick

My favorite song by them is orange - Gigan
