103 Muse Muse Muse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994.

Muse is a brilliant band and if you look at other lists on this website for the greatest rock band. Muse is clearly on that list, this list however makes no sence putting some of the best bands of all time here. I don't think muse should be here at all, I think people just don't like the genre so they think all the greatest rock bands are crap. I love muse and it does not deserve to be here.

No other band is nearly as good as Muse.

Shut up all you people. muse is great along with half of this list. I don't really know why they are on here but they are awesome

Narrow minded idiots. listen to supremacy for godsake

104 Beach Boys Beach Boys The Beach Boys are an American pop rock band formed in Hawthorne, California in 1961. The group's original lineup consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson, their cousin Mike Love, and their friend Al Jardine.

The fact that this band is on here confirms what I already knew: the Beach Boys are truly the most underrated band. Maybe because their peak came at the same time as the Beatles. If Brian Wilson had relased SMiLE, and if they could have broken away from the whole surfing, cars, and chicks image, they were on a trajectory to equal, even surpass the Beatles. - beatles

I can't believe the Beach Boys is on here. A worthy competitor of the Beatles. Wait...they're on here too...

Why are the beach boys on here come on whoever made this worthless list. - Ryan_14

Whoever put the Beach Boys on here needs to be sedated

Never heard them, don't want to. Just the name man! If you want to be taken seriously come up with at least a decent name for your band, really?

Another crappy band but they choose an appropriate name.

This is almost as bad as Poopfist (a band later in the list). Who came up with this name?


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.

107 Beastie Boys Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.

I'm only 11. Beastie Boys are the best band in the world. I've grown up on them! Really get your head out of the dirt, take a look at life for once!

I was a teenage boy in the 80s, and I had to fight for my right to party, but never would I unleash this dreadful, testosterone-drive drool on another individual.

My uncle knew Adam Yauch personally. Me and my family listen to the Beastie Boys all the Time! They are one of my favorite bands of all time! Who ever made this list honestly knows nothing about good music. And I have absolutely no idea why THE Beatles, ROLLING STONES, Led Zeppelin, U2, RATM ARE ON THIS LIST!

111 Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

I smell bull about these guys being higher than Quiet riot.

If you ever wanted theme music for 'Halloween' in your house this would band's music would keep the neighbourhood kids away while 'trick or treating'. They write such in depth beautiful music

First of all COF shoudnt be on this list they are a death metal band
Secondly there music is awesome and legendary listen to "Absinthe With Faust" you will definitely like them. - Dead-Beat

112 Poopfist

Never heard of them before... don't think I want to.

This is a joke right? This can't possibly exist

What type of band name is that?!?! Is this a typo?

You've got to be making up these names right? - Ryan_14

113 The White Stripes The White Stripes The White Stripes are an American rock duo, formed in 1997 in Detroit, Michigan. The duo consists of only a couple married at the time, Jack White, whose real name was Jack Gillis (songwriter, lead vocalist, guitarist, bassist and keyboardist) and Meg White (drummer and backing vocalist). After they ...read more.

It can't be a boy band if half the band is a women. Dumb A$$

LOL YOU GOT OWNED. Don't say it's a boyband when Meg White is in it. Anyways, they rock!

We end this list with the first real boyband. The White Stripes. Although they are more of a "indie folk modern classic college rock pop" band than a boyband. I just call it boyband so I don't run out of breath.

114 Foo Fighters Foo Fighters Foo Fighters is an American rock band, formed in Seattle in 1994. It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after the death of Kurt Cobain and the dissolution of his previous band. The band consists of obviously Dave Grohl (lead vocalist, songwriter), Pat Smear (lead guitarist, pianist), Nate Mendel ...read more.

Nope. Nirvana. Greatest alternative band of all time. Dave is an amazing drummer, and landed well when he jumped from drums to guitar and microphone. Don't put these two on here

Why even this band in this list? They have won Grammy award already for their The pretender...

They are even better than Nirvana because their vocalist wasn't a stoner who killed himself. And NIRVANA is GOOD, which says a lot about the Foo Fighters.

There awesome

116 The Pretty Reckless

The Pretty Reckless are one of my favorite bands together with:
Green Day
Tenacious D
Rise Against
Billy Talent
Linkin Park
The Beatles
The Doors
The Rolling Stones
No Doubt
Queens of the Stone Age
Rage Against the Machine

They rock hard.
Amazing mixture of alternative rock, post-grunge, hard rock and heavy metal, but they also have soft ballads.
They have everything!
I saw them live. Taylor is a very talented singer and you can feel a strong band vibe!

They're okay, but the lead singer needs to add more emotion to the songs. When she sings, she sounds cold and aloof. Also, the lyrics are too simple and repetive. This band has potential, but needs to improve. - gothictomboy66

117 Electric Light Orchestra Electric Light Orchestra The Electric Light Orchestra are an English rock band from Birmingham. They were formed in 1970 by songwriters/multi-instrumentalists Roy Wood and Jeff Lynne with drummer Bev Bevan.

ELO does not belong on this list!

What the heck. This list is retarted.

Who the hell even put them on the list? These guys redefined the alternative scene and unlike most rock bands of the 90s, stayed popular all of the 90s. Those who say they're bad deserve to die a horrible death.

... Is this list serious?

This stuff is gold, though. RHCP are my favourite band. Their songs actually have meaning, too.

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
