They Have a very original sound. I like the fact they use an independent record Label; makes artis set with more of a challenge
One of the very few bands that has every song kick ass. Spooky cool...
They are better than most bands this decade the top ten was just awful no wonder rock is dead now! Why do people vote for Nickleback and Linkin Park?More comments about Queens of the Stone Age

This band should be in top 20 bands at least Their music made me like rock and their music is the best ever. They have been for a long time and should be rated higher..
Yes you can argue this all you want. The reason is the insanely quick jump from being unheard of to being popular. I picked up skillet about 3 months before Awake and instantly fell in love with Whispers in the Dark and Comatose. I watched as Skillet overnight became extremely popular and was the first Christian rock band to break free of the other christian rock bands and started touring with the popular bands that were not christian. To this date I have only seen that happen twice, Skillet and Red.
God! This band is awesome! How come they aren't in TOP 10? Please, listen to this band, they have epic song. Jen's vocals with combination of John's epic voice are just perfect!More comments about Skillet
they with only bon jovi have survived through grunge and into the 21st century

Creed are ahead of AB? What? WHAT? Idiots.
"every time Myles opens his mouch, the music industry gets owned"
Alter bridge are way too low on this list you people are idiots for rating half of these so high up on the list I mean really linkin park?
Need to say more? It's sad to see those bands above alter bridge
I don't get it?! Iron Maiden CREATED metal as we know it, they have more fans then all these other bands PUT TOGETHER! Bruce Dickinson is more talented and has a greater vocal range then any other lead singer, Dave Murray & Adrian Smith have both written the best guitar work ever heard in a music and can shred it like no other is capable of doing.
This is not done.. Unfair to the gods of metal.. They are an awesome band.. They have been the inspiration of metal greats like metallica and megadeth.. They should be at least in the top 5.. 18 isn't the right position for them.. They simply rock...
Amazing, they just have such a style.. And their music is so inspiring, strong, laugh out loud they feed my sweet tooth!
A lot of people support me that Tokyo Hotel - this is the best team today. Their songs are lit fires in people. They have millions of fans around the world and we are looking forward to their new album!

sum 41 is so cool their music and age if this was my list they would be number 1! the foo fiteres and all that get ahead of sum 41 thats bullcrap, sum 41 rocks!
Should be in the top 10 for being one of the only punk rock bands still around today with Rise Against instead of sell outs like Linkin Park, Green Day, and Nickelback.
Billy Talent is one of those canadian bands that are absolutely huge in every country except America. While being still popular in America, this does not even compare to their foreign popularity. Billy Talent has spawned hits such as "Try Honesty", "Fallen Leaves", and "Rusted From The Rain".
Billy Talent has a unique sound!
Just listen one song and you will understand why Billy Talent should in the top ten of this list!
Billy talent is one of the better Canadian bands that are out there. They are more inovative than groups that have received greater recognition like nickelback. Listen to songs like surrender, river below, saint veronika, or even devil in a midnight mass to get a sample of the musical genius that is Billy Talent.
Switchfoot! Best band hands done. Hopefully they win, all of their songs are so meaningful; have great message. Blessings from South Cali.
ARE U KIDDINg? THIS IS THE BEST BAND! SHOULD BE AT THE TOP!
Rarely does a rock band combine explosive guitars with an intense longing for meaning. Jon Foreman and Switchfoot, however, yearn for something more than what pop-culture is selling. "If I'm content as an artist to write a hit song or have a platinum record, then I'll have failed a lot of my fellow human beings, " says Foreman. "We have the best jobs in the world because we play music for a living and love doing it, but we didn't get into this to try and sell something. For us, it's about communicating and connecting with people on a different level. "
Listen to dare u to move, meant to live, and your love is a song And u wont find any reasons y they are not at the top!
Switchfoot is a superior band and the fact that they are more than just a band they are also role models is another reason they are so great. Their music is great and has meaning. They are popular among all peoples and its for a reason: they are talented!More comments about Switchfoot
Dude... This band is amazing. HOW DID THE JONAS BROTHERS OUTRANK THEM? Seriously if this is what the world is coming to, I hope for the zombie appocolypse.
How is the Offspring this low? They kick a**!
AL I CAN SAY IS NO ONE CAN DISPUT WHAT THEY HAVE ACOMPLISHED. I HAVE ALL THEIR MUSIC AND FIND MYSELF NOT LISTENING TO ANYTHING ESLE. THEY HAVE THE ORINAL MENBERS AND STILL PRODUCE GREAT MUSIC TODAY. NOT MANY BANDS CAN SILL DO WHAT THEY DO.
What the hell this band is badass it should be somewhere at the top you posers especialy their song miss murder was one of the songs that represented that at rock is alive somewhere that one shed of light
I vote for them.. Because they're always rocking my world.. /drool
Cool list "my heart draws dream" or "Blurry EYES" nice music...
Or "PIECES" HITOMI NO Juunin
With the last album they really are one of the best bands of the 2000's.
They are good, innovative, they are... Awesome.
Pretty Small Band but still better then most of these bands
Older stuff is definitely better when Ronnie was still in the band. Their current stuff is still awesome, just not as awesome. I am surprised that they are not higher than this...
They rock harder then 80% of these bands out here. What is going on?
Awesome riffs and vocals
Sweden progressive melodic also near avantgarde metal
No bad songs, best ROCK band of the 2000's! Seventeen, She's a Genius,
Cold Hard Bitch, K.I.A. , Rip It Up, Rollover DJ, Are you gonna be
my Girl? , Put your money where your mouth is, just to name a few.
MGMT is one of the greatest band who plays elements from 60s and 70s. They bring psychedelic rock a whole new meaning and gives stoners a whole new psychedelic trip. They're album "congratulations" has some of the best lyrical ideas and musical creativity.
One of the best albums in my iTunes circulatory... one of the best albums of all time, for Electric Feel alone. MGMT is so unappreciative, however true fans know their quality, and they will continue to grow as a result of word-of-mouth.
congratulations was an amazing yet underappreciated album and oracular spectacular was amazing too. how nickelback, the most generic and terrible excuse for a rock band is even on the list is bafflingMore comments about MGMT
Vote for the best drum and bass band!
