Top Ten Stoner-rock Bandsninjacobra
The Top Ten
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.
kyuss... the best...
and about black sabbath, they are gods but they are not a stoner rock band... - Mpafoklaniaris
Kyuss is pure unadulterated stoner rock goodness.
First by a long way in this category, the masters of stoner rock! Followed by sleep..V 6 Comments
queens of the stone age are the best... why are they the best? "noone knows"
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 coversV 5 Comments
Sabbath is the best at everything they attempt
All of these bands wouldn't be on here if it wasn't for Sabbath!
The name 'Kyuss' wouldn't even be said without Black Sabbath!
They created stoner metal, how are they not number 1V 2 Comments
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. - mcg182
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 - mcg182
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.
Think Kyuss should be 1 and "The Wizard" should be 2V 4 Comments
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.
Sleep is stoner. Stoner is SleepV 3 Comments
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 magnetV 2 Comments
I've known them since I was little. I just love them so much
Listening to dark side of the moon start to finish stoned is sensational
Pink Floyd is the best. That's all there is to it.
There Pink Floyd need I say moreV 2 Comments
These guys are incredible! If you don't listen to them, you are missing out! - ryanrimmel
Should be third on this list, not really stoner rock would say they are the masters of doom..V 2 Comments
The put so musch soul in their songs that it seems like it possesses us in a good day... It's magical
Tool's music gets you high if you listen to it under the right light.
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 should be higher on the list. They are epic live.
My favorite bandV 2 Comments
Stoner Rock If I ever heard it..
"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! - ryanrimmel
Why is nirvana so low on this? In my opinion they should be at the top.
Nirvana good bad not stoner rock grunge, if uve never heard of Kyuss you shouldn't be on site for stoner rock, hands down best Electric Wizard right behind
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!
Josh homme jamming with few pals in the middle of the desert? Yes please, definitely stoner rock theyve had some great records..V 1 Comment
Especially Rhythmeen. ( to a little less degree: X, Mescalero and Antenna )
