Best Rock Bands of All Time
The Contenders: Page 9
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
Best Band Ever good Music, Lyrics, Band Members, Everything is good about this band nothing else better then most of the bands on this list. - FateGround592
A great band that deserves to be higher on this list
Great passion, music that relates to anyone, they deserve at least the Top 10.
I think they should be in the top 20 minimumV 6 Comments
One of the greatest pop-rock bands of all time. Rosanna and hold the line are classic rock songs!
30-years this year, since Hold the Line, and still just getting better and better
So underrated! Toto was really my introduction to thinking a band was cool. For that, I will always be thankful.
Not my favorite but it deserves WAY more than this. - KingofSnails42V 6 Comments
Ascendency is the best metal album I've ever heard. need to be up there in the top 25 atleast. Matt and Corey are two of the 20 best guitarists alive today in my opinion. Paolo plays bass like nothing I've ever heard, and Travis is just hands down the best metal drummer - mike2fristick
I was starting to think that Trivium wasn't on here. Avenged Sevenfold sucks and comparing them to Trivium is like asking if a lion can kill a cat. - Trivium
This is so badwhy trivium in this list they should be in top 20, they have the best metal songs ever they are nu-Metallica.. A7X are nothing they are a normal band but trivium a perfect metal band I've never seen in my hole life
Trivium get such a bad rap, and I don't understand why... these guys are great!V 3 Comments
One of the greatest bands ever and had one of the greatest bassist and guitarist you could find

The vocals take some time to get used to but you get to realize that it fits the type of music.
The band is great and I recommend because they are quite talented and they are underrated.
They tell a story with their music, literally. The lead singer writes comics so you can read his books and then understand or almost predict what is coming next.

Why Coheed and Cambria isn't in the top 50.
I think that coheed really makes it to top 50 at least. Know why? Because they have a natural talent
and then they have a great song.
"Welcome Home" is one of the greatest song that I've heard.
One of the most greatest bands of all time.
Hell of nice guys.
Amazing bass lines and guitar riffs.
Perfect vocals and drum beats.
I don't understand why they're not on here.
Best bandV 1 Comment
don't let the name fool you. very talented
CHIODOS IS AMAZING. NOTHING MORE TO SAY.
How could it be that a band that used to have Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page in the guitars is so low listed? Have you ever hear them? They rock!
This band is full of musical genius! How are they not higher in the list? Besides, rolling stone magazine had them in their 100 greatest artists of all time
They were the first super group of their time, before cream and hendrix
3 of the 5 best guitarists ever!V 4 Comments
First three albums are undying classics. NOT a one hit wonder - music of epic emotional sweep and power. Like the other poster said, songs that always stir and stay in your heart. Thanks Stuart.
Still love Big Country ; music that never gets old and is untainted by irony or cynicism. Power in the best sense.
Stuart Adamson is the U.K. S response to jimi Hendrix said John Peel. He is just simply amazing. This is for the best bands not the most popular and Big Country certainly is the best. With albums the crossing, steeltown and the seer they revolutionized, at least, the way I listen to and like Rock music. Bassist Tony Butler and Mark Brezicki are just as good, and the best in my opinion. And bruce is all around cool. This band may never be in the top 100 but they will always number one in my and many others hearts.
Best Scottish bands ( for me ) : #3 Simple Minds, #2 Mogwai, #1 Big Country.V 2 Comments
Lacuna coil are amazing! They have a mix of male and female voices with some amazing drums and guitar! There song's are very catchy and the music videos are so cool
Are you kidding me?! Pennywise 168?! Move bitch!
This band is fantastic, and I have no idea why they aren't high up on the list. Great sound, great band, great everything.V 1 Comment
For sure in the top 3 bands post 2000. Their songs such as Blurry, Control, Psycho, Never Change, Basement, just to name a few, are great. Come Clean, Famous, and Life on Display are all good albums (especially Cone Clean). Unfortunately for us fans, Wes Scantlin has been going a little wack lately, but none the less while it lasted it was pretty great. Hopefully Wes gets his self together and they can lay down some more tracks!
This band isn't very good at all
I like one song very much
Best band out there... too low in this list.. asking Alexandria is above them what the hell
The Cat's Cradle is where this amazing band got their name rom and I love them so much! 227 is so not them lewl whatever their final placing is, remember that you guys will always be top10 in my heart ^^V 1 Comment
Seeing The Smiths this far down doesn't surprise me at all. One of the best bands in the history of music indeed, they have influenced every single act that has come out of the British rock since 1987, but they wouldn't be The Smiths if they achieved mainstream success. The Smiths stand for the outcasts, for the outsiders, for the alternative. Morrissey's lyrics entwined with Johnny Marr's melodic guitar playing gives us the most prominent songrwiting partnership since Lennon/McCartney. However, honey is not made for the lamb's snout. Let them stick to Linkin Park and Chester Bennington,30 seconds to mars and Avenged Sevenfold while we listen to the real thing.
Absolute travesty to see the genius of The Smiths so far down on this list. Daring and never seen before lyricism, one of the best guitarists to ever exist and hugely underrated bass and drums from Rourke and Joyce. This band has inspired the likes of the Oasis and Radiohead for crying out loud people!
No other band had more influence on 90s alternative singer-songwriters as Morrissey and The Smiths. Without The Smiths, "emo" would have never existed. Morrissey made it OK to say exactly how you felt about being awkward, nerdy, geeky and misunderstood. Johnny Marr's famous guitar stutter effect on "How Soon Is Now? " would forever change the sound of alternative rock guitar forever and spawn thousands of copycats.

How are they not higher? There sounds relate to young and old and as they made albums they sold more and more records and tyson riitter is one of the best front mans around!
They sing really awesome some of their sons like gives you hell and it ends tonight are amazing
? I used to listen to these guys all the time they MUST be higher.V 3 Comments
The Stone Roses at 271? They influenced started the so called "Brit-pop" era of the 90s as well as producing their self titled album which for me is an all-time great.
The Stone Roses should definitely be higher. One of my all time favourite bands and influenced so many other artists!
So a band called barenaked ladies is higher than the stone roses? Wow this generation knows nothing about Music
Ian Brown is awesomeV 5 Comments
they are a very heavy band but they have great guitar and drums. their screamer is very good as well. listen to blacken the cursed sun and walk with me to hell -
Hell yes, they are the best. They should be number one, all of their songs are good. They have a great drummer and vocalist.
Number one metal band in the world! They have the best break downs ever! The best at their genre! Perfect vocals! I just love this band! Who cares about the rating! Any metal head would know how good this band is!
True American Metal at its FINEST!V 4 Comments
