50 Faith No More Faith No More Faith No More is an American rock band from San Francisco, California, formed in 1979. Before settling on their current moniker in 1983, the band performed under the names Sharp Young Men and later Faith No Man.

Excuse me? Faith No More are pretty much the pioneers of funk rock. RHCP only copied their style when they did Blood Sugar Sex Magic, before that it was all hillbilly stuff. These guys have always stayed to their roots and have experimented with fusing funk with metal, punk and even classical music. - metaldude8

I have no idea who these guys are but I do know that they do not warrant the number 10 spot on this list! Where is The Fatback Band? Slave? or even Chic?

51 Incubus Incubus Incubus is an American rock band from Calabasas, California. The band was formed in 1991 by vocalist Brandon Boyd, lead guitarist Mike Einziger, and drummer Jose Pasillas while enrolled in Calabasas High School and later expanded to include bassist Alex "Dirk Lance" Katunich, and Gavin "DJ Lyfe" Koppell; more.

Fantastic musicians. Always ringing the changes, surfing on the tide of their own creativity. Love 'em!
