Top Ten Stoner-rock Bandsninjacobra
The Top Ten
kyuss... the best...
and about black sabbath, they are gods but they are not a stoner rock band... - Mpafoklaniaris
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.
First by a long way in this category, the masters of stoner rock! Followed by sleep..
This is easy. When you say stoner rock, you say Kyuss. This band should be first in every stoner rock list..7 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 12 Comments
queens of the stone age are the best... why are they the best? "noone knows"
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...
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.
Even if you don't like this band, its undeniable that they have an incredible amount of talent - SmileyStudios6 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
Of course, this is a trip
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.5 Comments
Dopesmoker/Jerusalem Is art not music
Awesome stoner rock band
Where the hell is Sleep?!
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 2nd7 Comments
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.
If I have to explain, your already lost
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 - Joeljohns249
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.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 magnet
Mm circa 1989 #6? Really? I have nothing
They originated the movement... and they're pretty cool.
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..
One of the best grunge bands
Tool is stoner rock? Wha?
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.2 Comments
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
Nightstalker, best stoner in Europe
Nirvana is not stoner-rock..
"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
Nirvana is not stoner-rock...
They slowly and heavy7 Comments
Especially Rhythmeen. ( to a little less degree: X, Mescalero and Antenna )
Where is Them Crooked Vultures? - ugandanknuckles
Josh homme jamming with few pals in the middle of the desert? Yes please, definitely stoner rock theyve had some great records..
So, judging by the list I'm guessing people on here think it's Stoner Rock-Bands, not Stoner-Rock Bands. STONER ROCK is a GENRE. You can't just state bands because it sounds like they are stoned as f*ck.
Stoner-Rock is: Kyuss, QotSA, Monster Magnet, Ghost Inc., Goatsnake, Electric Wizard, Acid King, Unida, Nebula, Fu Manchu and the Desert Sessions.
NOT Green Day or Tenacoius D, I'm afraid.
Stoner/Desert Rock, whatever you wanna call it these guys are IT!
Stoner Rock definition!
Should be number 1. - JCHOW
If sublime is not on the top of any list with "stoner" in the title then something is wrong
Smoke two joints, ska is their main genre. And all in all they're a really good band to toke to
They literally named their band after their fascination for marijuana.
Try listening to their song "Longview", you'll find yourself relating to it
Why do you think their name is "Green" Day
The name Green Day says everything, but technicaly their not the most stoner of all, Pink Floyd, led zeppelin and clutch are better in my oppinion
These guys define stoner music
Can you pass the acid test? Leave no left turn unstoned!
Red Fang's this low? Maybe my definition of stoner rock is off.
Severely underrated. Fantastic stoner band from Argentina! Should be in the top 3.
The Bong of Destiny - AdamDestructorJr.
Come on this is a great band for stoners laugh out loud
Let the D rize to the top!
Stoner rock is music to get stoned to, there is no band on earth can match the Hawks in this, Roll yourself a doofer and settle back in a darkened room with Space Ritual on full volume through a good set of cans. Then you'll know what real stoner music is. Queens of the Stone Age? Sound Garden? PLEASE! Smoking to those is like a ver bad acid trip
Listen to Space Ritual Live to hear the roots of stoner rock. The song Space is Deep is a classic.
Very harsh vocals, amazing music!
The best male voice ever
