311 Van Halen Van Halen Van Halen is an American hard rock band formed in Pasadena, California, in 1972. From 1974 until 1985, the band consisted of guitarist Eddie Van Halen, vocalist David Lee Roth, drummer Alex Van Halen, and bassist Michael Anthony.

Van Halen is one of the greatest bands of all time if not the greatest band to come of the 1980's. They started during a time of Disco and Punk and started a new scene in LA that opened the door for many LA bands (Motley Crue, Ratt, Poison, Warrant etc.). Next to Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen is the most talented guitarists ever. Van Halen defines American Rock & Roll!

Wow... That person has some major personal hate going on in there. What did VH do to you, back in the day? Run over your cat with the tour bus. You're obviously some unhappy soul from the 70's to reference DLR.

Nope, sorry Van Halen don't belong here PERIOD. Go back to your skinny jeans and crappy Bieber jingle music.

But -BUT... but Van Halen is the best band to come out of the states...PERIOD!

THEY ARE GREAT. really, how about taking your head out of the sand!

I did't really hate them, but almost all the TepTopTens lists have in the top ten X-Japan or something from them... and they aren't really the best band! - rock2metal

Yes! This is so true! Stairway to Heaven, Holy Diver, Bohemian Rhapsody, We Will Rock You, Mr. Crowley, Crazy Train, AND Eruption are better than Art of Life! Jimi Hendrix is BETTER than Hide. Ozzy Osbourne is better than Toshi, Heck, EVEN Axl Rose is better than Toshi! - LedZepp81

Even if you create lots of wonderful ballads that doesn't make you a true good artist - ronluna

Just because they're Japanese doesn't mean they suck.

I love FFDP But I swear. If A7x is on here, I will be way more than pissed.

Horrible cheesy arena rock lyrics. How does this crap even get on the radio.

This is just wrong

How can the founders of metal be on this list, they're AMAZING!

First of all, Black Sabbath (Tony Iommi) is the creator of metal music as we know it today. DEATH TO SMALL PUPPIES

Not like BLECH Sabbath

315 The Eagles The Eagles The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner.

How did THESE guys get on the list. THEY ARE THE ULTIMATE American ROCK BAND. Pink Floyd, Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin are Brittish. But EAGLES? HOLY CRAP! BEST BAND IN AMERICA! They could try a capella if they wanted to. Great harmonies, and masterful guitar playing. Most great rock bands ain't got that - greatesttop10s

What! Eagles are amazing! They don't belong this list.

I don't consider The Eagles a straight forward Rock band. They've always had a HUGE Country music influence in their music.

The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some ...read more.

I have absolutely no idea what's wrong with green day. They write their own music, they don't use autotune and very rarely do they use electronic music. They have talent

Green Day is not that worst.. But they need to improve their style.. They have talent.. But they are using it wrongly. But at the same time, I accept that their guitar playing is amazing..

You blond fellow, they also have Jason white. They are one of thebest bands. Have you seen their new albums uno dos and tre?

These people are awesome! Take them off the list! - emmaricciuto

This is the worst list ever.

What the hell? Rush is the best band ever.

This list is so messed up it makes me want to cry.

Here's 5 valid reasons why Rush should NOT be on here...

1) They're Canadian and Canadians are nice!
2) They are the most talented musicians to ever grace the music planet
3) They've had the same members since 1974. How many bands can say that?
4) They've never been much of a "pop" band with "hit songs" but done there own thing outside of the mainstream
5) They've never really went away. Always putting out new music and touring

What? Worst band ever? This guys invented METAL ROCK! And they're the only good metal band that is not satanist! Black Sabbath is obviously illuminati's band.

Who the hell put ac dc on this list? - Elwood

What? This band is the worst? Try BEST. They have timeless classics like Back In Black (never gets old), Highway to Hell, Thunderstruck, and countless more. Jesus, people you guy suck at musical/band analysis.

(GASPS) GET EM OFF THIS LIST! (Cringes into a billion pieces) - OnyxDash

319 Journey Journey Journey is an American rock band that formed in San Francisco in 1973, composed of former members of Santana and Frumious Bandersnatch.

I've never understood why people hate this band. They are really good, if you actually listen to them.

I've always thought of Journey as being a girls rock band because every girl I know listens to them and there music is so light. Bon Jovi, REO Speedwagon, Matchbox 20 and Nickelback are bands who I would throw in the "light girl music" bin!

The worst band that everyone seems to like for some reason. Too many people like bad music.

Journey is terrible, overrated garbage. All of their songs are the same and they're not even that good. I don't know what people's fascination is with this band.

So given most of the bands on this list are actually amazing (ex: Metallica, Nirvana, AC/DC, KISS... Etc) we can all establish that the person that made this list is probably an 8 year old that put a band from a fictional book on here.

Dude, it's a fictional band from Diary of a Wimpy Kid,

I laughed when I saw this.

What this isn't even REAL
