The Contenders: Page 8
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.
My favorite song by them is orange - Gigan

Easily one of the best rock bands of my generation
Are you guys crazy or something? Creed is in 175? Creed?
Creed has one of the best guitarists in the world. The songs are so nice, the lyrics are so deep.
Nope. Nope. This isn't acceptable. They deserve to be in the top 50.
I love them. There lyrics are deep. I cannot imagine how sorry Scott Stapp feels about the break. I am happy they are back together. They actually look happy to be on stage today.
One of the best bands...from its writing to its composition...a brilliant set of people...come on guys...songs like With Arms Wide Open,My Sacrifice,Higher,My Own Prison,One last breath...have been anthems...they have sold about a heavy 40 million records...a grammy winner for the best Rock Song...which even many bands prior to this have failed to achieve...musically they are among the best...it doesn't matter what this website tells...V 10 Comments
Any band at Woodstock should be in the top 50. Carlos still rocks! Decades of hits!
No mention of Carlos Santana
How in the hell did Santana come in after the Jacksons and queens of the stone age? Get a grip people
Great show band. Second best concert I ever saw. Best percussion, guitar, great albums, top twenty easy! Along with the Allman Brothers(100). - ConbillbV 10 Comments
#144! Dear god, what is happening?
Kasabian in my mind are one of the greatest bands of the modern age, let me just throw some songs at you:
-Shoot The Runner
-Where Did All The Love Go?
Kasabian are fantastic and they don't deserve to be this low
Great band from the UK. Very unique style. Definitely should be in the top 50.
An amazing band with some great songs
Nobody likes Kasabian?V 1 Comment
Really makes me sad that a band like this is at such a low position. All that complexity, skill, and musicianship...
The picture is scaring me, get rid of it please
The best band of all time along with genesis
Probably the most musically complex band in rock history.
What's that you said about King Crimson?
This is one of the biggest of the many insults on this list. A lot of you are like,"there so stupid there not even rock". Listen to sabotage, that'll answer that stupid statement. They had one of the most influential and inspiring impacts in music history. Linkin Park and Eminem both said The Beastie Boys were one of the bands they found most inspiring. Stop disliking because you can, and realize what the Beastie Boys of done. At that time, what they did was unheard of and completely new. Not many people can make a completely new style like they did.
Transcended rap to become alternative icons, from the most unlikely beginning to creating works of genius, Beasties did it all and then some. They are rock, they are hip-hop, they are everything good in popular music. KICK IT!
There isn't one album these guys made that isn't great. Not good, GREAT. And three of them are game changing classics. Only Public Enemy are on the same level.
Total, absolute gods.V 12 Comments
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
Why aren't they higher on the list, they should be no. 1V 22 Comments
BLUE OYSTER CULT remains a band that though have been around for more than 40 ' years still just hasn't claimed what was undoubtedly, by all right its own- a top-notch place among the greatest bands ever. Alas! But it still continues to show its true, pristine colors by doing live shows throughout the U. S and thus always keeping up to its side of terms. And its followers, irrespective of how so few they may be in number, continue to worship them with an unbreakable faith. Buck Dharma to me is in the same league (if not the superior) to Frank Zappa, Van Halen and other unbelievably good guitarists of their contemporary era. For me, undoubtedly the MOST UNDERRATED BAND and LEAD GUITARIST of the 20th century. But I will keep on believing in them till my last breath. My Heroes-B.O. C and Buck Dharma.
P. S: I'M BURNIN'.. I'M BURNIN'.. I'M BURNIN' FOR YOU!
Such a strange, singular band of it's era - rock, pop, psych, all tied up with lyrics that draw from mysticism, horror and poetry. Really not heavy metal in the traditional sense, just it's own many - headed collective. Name is quite apt as they were slightly too strange for true mass appeal, but until the ouster of A. Bouchard, one of the great American bands. The Unknown Tongue has spoken!
these guys are actually the greatest band ever, people just dont know more than 3 songs by them. COME ON! dont fear the reaper is the greatest song ever and they have the greatest guitarist.
The other bands must have an air raid alarm to avoid utter Dominance and Submission from THE VERY OWN Dizbusting, ME262 zooming, Nosferatu hunting, Archer nailing, Deadlining, Career making, Eye Harvesting, Black Blading, Perfect Water surfing, Shark Shooting, Hot Railing, Leather hunking, Sole Surviving, City Flaming, Marshall Planning, Telepath Flaming, Fireworks blazing, Screaming, Celine Searching, Harvest Mooning, Siege investituring, Hammer Backing Veterans with PhDs in Music (Yes, that was a Dr. Music reference.) that will forever remain in the infinite Astronomy of many minds.
If you're a Cultist, 'Don't Turn Your Back'... otherwise, on the Morning Final, there is a Presence of Another World that might please you.
Firehouse is simply the best
I'm shocked that none of the people voted for firehouse... They were tmalso one of the best band that influenced people during the 90's... They deserve a better position.
They are on of the best!
Above Joy Division?! What is this madness?!
It's pretty obvious the Fronz is god
1 of my favorite band and I love it so much their songs like last train home, where we belong, burn burn they all are awesome man... They know the real meaning of rock music
Lostprophets are the best. They really do know haw to rock. I love their songs like we bring an arsenal and where we belong. They really should be at the top 20 at least
They are immense fair play, I loves them I do butt.
Best welsh band! Cymru Am Byth!
Should be number one, Last Train Home and Rooftops are fantastic
I loved the album Liberation Transmission. Some really great songs on there!
The first ever glam rockers, Marc Bolan did something truly unique here, and who knows what they would have done if it wasn't for that car crash
Influenced artists as diverse as The Smiths and Prince, and Slash and Steven Tyler are also fans of themV 1 Comment
Their first album is a masterpiece that can't be overlooked, one of the best of the last 30 years. Atmospheric, moody, fantastic delivery from Paul Banks and they had one of the greatest bassists out there for a while. Definitely deserves a heck of a lot more than 2013
Turn on The Bright Lights is easily one of the best albums ever created. This band deserves much more recognition. If you don't believe me give them a try. Usually I'd recommend a particular song but with Interpol you simply cannot go wrong.
Go listen to them and you will understand what I am trying to get at. - george23234
Oh wow, these dudes are here, I love their stuff, I don't remember the names though...yeah these guys should be higherV 2 Comments
One man. Tons of talent. His voice is amazing, and there is literally so much talent he could easily take on Coldplay or The Fray. Piano rock at it's best!V 1 Comment
Come on Danzig fans I know you're out there. We are below Savage Garden. Are boy needs some love. - Blackdragonfish
I really dig the song "Mother". I hear it on the radio a lot and I always like the sound of this song.
Danzig should be a lot higher than 219V 2 Comments
YEAH! they made a before and after in the world, ALL rock, punk and even pop! are ALL in some way inspired by the pistols and not ONLY music but attitude and looks etc...
they broke all the music rules and social rules that make our day now free
jonnhy rotten and steve jones were the first on earth to swear on TV! they did it on the bill grundy show jonnhy said "s***!" and then Steve said "you f****** rotter!" to grundy!
they are legends and without them the world wouldn't be the same!
when you think punk, you think the pistols.
In the 2 years they were active.. They started chaos around the world JUST THROUGH THEIR MUSIC.
It's enjoyable music.V 20 Comments
