Top Ten Stoner Rock Bands
Josh Homme AND Scott Reeder, John Garcia, Brant Bjork are one of the creaters of Stoner Rock. They evolved together and builded their sound together. Seriously guys, without Kyuss, Josh Homme wouldn't be so badass. Face it!
You have no idea what your talking about. Queens Of The Stone Age is not a Stoner rock band. Kyuss most certainly is. Do the research.
This is easy. When you say stoner rock, you say Kyuss. This band should be first in every stoner rock list..
First by a long way in this category, the masters of stoner rock! Followed by sleep..
The root of all evil... Listen to early Sab records and enjoy their foresight and freshness, still today. Sweet leaf!
Forever at the top. Anyone who doesn't see it that way doesn't understand what this is all about.
All of these bands wouldn't be on here if it wasn't for Sabbath!
Pure OG Stoner Evil! I'd put early Sabbath against any stoner band.
Burn the witches who voted for kyuss! They're just not willing to go with the flow. The sky is falling if qotsa isn't #1. Everybody knows you're insane if you don't love this band. They're like medication to me. No one knows just how amazing this band is. I'm sure if they could these guys would do it again.
Every Queens Of The Stone Age song is good. Whether they grow on you or not, Queens of The Stone Age will always be the best! Kyuss, a bit too heavy in sound, Number Two they should be...
I don't know personally many stoner rock bands but I would die for qotsa sucha great band. There albu, song for the death is stoner rock but it gets more alternative rock with its latest album covers
Stoner Rock was born in the deserts of California. Josh Homme is one of the creaters of Stoner Rock, enough said.
How come no one mentioned Electric Wizard? Soundgarden shouldn't even be up there. Soundgarden is grunge/alternative rock, not stoner metal. Neither should blues and Southern rock legends ZZ Top. Stoner metal is about the music, not about the fact that the members use drugs. Electric Wizard, the heaviest band of all time, should at least be mentioned.
How come no one mentioned Electric Wizard? Soundgarden shouldn't be there. Soundgarden isn't even stoner metal, it's alternative/grunge. Oh, and ZZ Top. Yeah, blues and Southern rock legends ZZ Top are stoner metal. Right. *sarcasm
Listen to "Stone Magnet" on their self-titled album. If you don't think they deserve to be top 3 after that then you're not looking for stoner rock.
Most of these bands are NOT stoner rock. Electric Wizard most certainly is.
So many people putting grunge bands up high in this list... what is the matter with you people? Thank god Kyuss are at the top but Sleep should be 2nd
Should definitely be second on this list.. Kyuss first (of course) sleep second..
Makes me feel alive and drunk. Music is vibrant, cool and cool.
Of course Sleep. Focus people, it's a Stoner Rock list.
It surprises me that most of the bands mentioned here are not stoner, they belong in other genres. This is about bands that have the stoner rock sound, not bands to take drugs to. Clutch over here, is one of the best examples of the sound.
Their critically and commercially successful albums are The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), The Wall (1979), and The Final Cut (1983). They also recorded A Saucerful of Secrets (1968), Ummagumma (1969), Obscured By Clouds (1972) and their debut album The Piper at the Gates of Dawn (1967), created after releasing some singles. ...read more.
Psychedelic Rock, not Stoner Rock. Stoner Rock usually has heavy metal or doom metal influences, Pink Floyd doesn't have any of that. Hence they're not stoner rock
Pink Floyd is the best. That's all there is to it.
Listening to dark side of the moon start to finish stoned is sensational
Like the person above said Monster Magnet originated the movement in 1991, with the release of Spine Of God. Surprised Hendrix is not mentioned.
If you lived in the west you would say kyuss. If you lived in the northeast in 1989- early 90s you would say monster magnet
Mm circa 1989 #6? Really? I have nothing
These guys are incredible! If you don't listen to them, you are missing out!
Should be third on this list, not really stoner rock would say they are the masters of doom..
I love tool. Their music will blow your mind. They have so much meaning in every song. Great band to trip to has well
Tool's music gets you high if you listen to it under the right light.
Best band ever created hands down. Anything else is trash.
Tool should be higher on the list. They are epic live.
The put so musch soul in their songs that it seems like it possesses us in a good day... It's magical
Stoner Rock If I ever heard it..
An amazing band
The band was comprised of Kurt Cobain (Vocals, Guitar), Dave Grohl (Drums) and Krist Novoselic (Bass).
Nirvana is most well-known for their albums Bleach, Nevermind, In Utero and MTV Unplugged in New York and their songs "About a Girl", "Smells Like Teen Spirit", "Come As You Are", "Lithium", "In Bloom", "Heart-Shaped Box", "All Apologies" and "Pennyroyal Tea". The band is known for being one of the most influential bands of all time. Together with Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Alice In Chains, the band is part of the Big 4 of Grunge. ...read more.
"I've never heard of Kyuss", then listen to them! You will realize what stoner rock really is, and then you'll realize that Nirvana isn't stoner rock!
Excuse me but why isn't Nirvana on top of all this?! (In my opinion (which probably many can share)) They're the best Grunge Band of all times! And mainly because of they're awesome Lyrics/Music/meaning behing behind their songs!
I'd so wish for them to still exist :'( I'd totally go to at least on of theire concerts!
Why is nirvana so low on this? In my opinion they should be at the top.
Nirvana is not stoner-rock..
