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 219

In the 2 years they were active.. They started chaos around the world JUST THROUGH THEIR MUSIC.

It's enjoyable music.

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

Great passion, music that relates to anyone, they deserve at least the Top 10.

I think they should be in the top 20 minimum

165 Trivium Trivium Trivium are an American heavy metal band from Orlando, Florida, formed in 1999. After getting signed to Roadrunner Records in 2004, the band has released seven studio albums and nineteen singles.

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!

166 Toto Toto Toto is an American rock band formed in 1977 in Van Nuys in Los Angeles. The band's current lineup consists of Joseph Williams, David Paich, Steve Porcaro, Steve Lukather, plus touring members Leland Sklar and Shannon Forrest.

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. - KingofSnails42

168 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

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.

More of an Alternative Rock/Rock

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 band

169 The Yardbirds The Yardbirds The Yardbirds are an English rock band formed in London in 1963 that had a string of hits during the mid-1960s, including "For Your Love", "Heart Full of Soul" and "Over Under Sideways Down".

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!

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

They have good music not just for the grown ups but for the kids as well

171 Barenaked Ladies Barenaked Ladies Barenaked Ladies is a Canadian rock band. The band is currently composed of Jim Creeggan, Kevin Hearn, Ed Robertson, and Tyler Stewart.

Seriously, they are the WORST.

Their very existence is an affront to lovers of good music everywhere. Every note causes me pain.

Absolutely, excruciatingly terrible.

Even worse than Nickelback if that's possible. Only Moxy Fruvous surpass them in foulness and shame - sorry rest of world! Signed : Canada.

They should be in the top 100, this is an amazing band.

173 Big Country

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.

177 Puddle of Mudd Puddle of Mudd Puddle of Mudd is an American rock band formed in 1991. To date, the band has sold over seven million albums and has had a string of No.

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

178 Burning Slow Burning Slow
179 Ice Nine Kills

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 ^^
