Greatest Rock Band Of All Time
« see full list
What... So many mediocre bands ahead of these legends. I will name a few bands that are ahead of these legends that have no business being near the top 10. Bullet for my Valentine, My Chemical Romance, Blink 182, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters, Evanesence, System of a Down, Muse, Green Day? ABOVE THE DOORS! The Doors at #46! You f*** kidding me! Come on, this is why I can't stand my own generation sometimes. No sense of history or in doing cool and fun s***! They were a personification of the rock and roll life: Sex, Drugs & Partying. Morons with no musical understanding vote for those safe, soulless bands with no depth, creativity or talent in their art. This list dismayed me with the Beatles not being number 1, Jimi Hendrix being ranked around 30, Linkin Park and Green Day being in the top 10, while the Rolling Stones and Iron Maiden are not. This goes to show the ignorance of peoples understanding of rock and roll. But to put the Doors at 46 is just moronic. Move the Doors up for the love of the music please!
What! The doors at 58, you have to be kidding me, obviously majority of the voters from this list prefer commercial bands like linkin Park etc. That can only be the reason why great bands like the doors, pink floyd and deep purple are not doing so well. Anyways, The doors are Gods, the produced classic records that will never die, their music is heavenly and incredibly spiritual.
"Nothing is as eternal as poetry & songs. " - Jim Morrison
The Doors are my absolute favorite band of all time.
With Ray Manzarek's amazing keyboard skills, John Densmore's unpredicable beats, Robby Kreiger's amazing lyrics & rhythm, alongside Jim Morrison's breathtaking voice & phenomenal poetry; The Doors were one of the best bands of that decade.
They opened my eyes & ears to everything around me. Made me question the meaning of everything. "Obedience is Suicide. " Long live the Lizard King; He can do anything.
The Doors pretty much started the whole Sex, Drugs, and Rock N' Roll thing. Jim Morrison would write lyrics on Drugs, and they would be poetic masterpieces; Classic Rock and Blues hits. Jim Morrison gave insperation to so many up coming bands and fans. Too many to name, he also showed people how to party! Although they lacked a bassist, the doors made up for it with keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and Robby Krieger (not Keane) on Guitar. If you don't like the Doors, you probly haven't even listened to them.
He is the king the "lizard king"
number 1 band of psychedelic rock!
all time favorite the lyrics the music and morison's stage performance...
jim never dies...
It is very sad. The doors behind number44... It should be in the firth ten or I won't overdo if I say it should be in the first 5. Morrison was a genius. The doors' music have changed a lot of thing in the world. Their music was original and they sent a special massage for us. If you don't believe this, let me write a few titles to prove them. Let's search for People are strange, Riders on the storm, Light my fire, The end, The crystal ship, Roadhouse blues, When the music's over, Love me two times...
It's Sad Jim threw his life away at a "young age"-he'd be a multi-billionare, if he was still alive, "Rest in Peace Jim Morrison, -Your the true "Lizard King, Your music is awesome, My dad had good seats to see your show in SLC Utah, till it was "cancelled"-cause of your profanity in Florida.. (Ya, he was upset. )-I'd be too if I missed your show. )-(P. S. -If you were STILL ALIVE Jim, You would be closer to the "TOP" not, #59. )
I cannot believe that The Doors are this far up the list. They are a brilliant band. They are unique and so different then any other band out there. They combined musical creativity with art and poetry. They opened up my mind and connected me with a whole new spiritual awareness. They gave me the power to become a creative individual. I am forever grateful for this amazing band and for James Douglas Morrision, my muse.
Yes! Jim Morrison is the best! He finally gets honor
Best band ever PERIOD! I have no words for how much I love this band. From the most exiting lead singer ever known to man to the fantastic and unique sound they have with Ray Manzarek playing piano and bass a the same time to Krieger's intricate finger work on the guitar. Just amazing, they should be in the top 10 at the very least in my opinion.
A list is as big a farce as anything...not putting the Doors in the top ten shows how we all have forgotten our roots for just pop-rockish monetary noonesense.Nothing beats the lyrics of jim,the keys of manezarak and the guitaring of robbie keane.
U cant put the kids ahead of there gran dads where else can they find inspiration from..
For sure my all time favourite band. I love Led Zeppelin also, but this band has become my favourite through the years. I think the mix of Jim's very good lyrics and the bands progressive style. Long live the Lizard King. Mojo Risin. "If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. "
This list is only based upon the views of those who prefer the commercial bands and I am sure, the people who have voted otherwise are huge fans of Justin Bieber and One direction. Music today has no quality.. Jim morrison will be rolling I his grave if he saw this
Jim Morrison was a poet! He may have been pretentious, but he had reason to be! He was a VERY smart guy! Manzarek is the one reason I reconsidered not liking keyboards in rock bands. (I like them now by the way) They weren't JUST about the music, they were about the poetry!
I can not believe the doors are so low, they were influential to rock music and west coast music they had so many hits and were more than just musicians they were poets. They should be in the top 10 tokyo hotel are not a rock band they are too modern and alternate this is a rock list
What was that promise that you made?
That they would be way above number 58? THEN WHY'D YOU BREAK THE PROMISE?! Man, why aren't The Doors way higher up on this list?! Listen to "Touch Me", then you'll understand. I voted The Doors even though Queen is my very fave. See how nice I am
35... pathetic. the doors were one of the greatest rock bands of all time. and one thing I know is that ray manzarek is an extremely talented keyboardist, and jim morrison was a good vocalist and songwriter
When The Doors are #60... That makes the entire list a joke. Doors must be top 20 or else this list is garbage, there are also a lot of new bands that simply don't belong anywhere near the top 50
Unique sound and words - have listened to them since 1968 and still do at the age of 60 - my children aged 18 (girl) and 15 (son) like some songs such as Strange Days and People are Strange - Mike Eksteen South Africa
the doors are the most influential band ever and without them music would ba a dull dull world jim morrison was more than a singer he was a poet and more then a poet he was one of the greatest poets ever, way better than the beatles
Can't believe I had to scroll all the way down to 47 to find Mr jimbo.. The lizard king will never die. He continues to inspire me.
they have one of the best lyrics ever... And people are surely strange.
Why the f-ck is the doors in 30? Maybe 'cause those kids who enjoy linkin'park too much couldn't appreciate how brilliant the doors actually is. They're songs have a depth to them found in few other bands
What the hell? Linkin park? The muse? And pink floyd jimi hendrix rolling stones are all below? That's it. People choose fine. Well the doors produced spiritual music! Led zeppelin. Obviously number 1
Someone must have done mistake...instead of writing 1 they put 9 behind 1....that's alrt buddy...The Doors rocks..they are the no 1...They are the Rock king..they can do anything....
No one else sounded like The Doors in their day and to this day that's still true. They're one of the most original rock and roll bands that ever existed. They're top 5 material for sure. Number 1 in my book forever.
