The Best Funk Rock Bands of All Time

List Criteria: Upvote your favorite funk rock bands and artists

Funk-rock artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List includes any good funk-rock band label, album and biographical information when available if you click on the names. This list of the top funk-rock bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Funk-rock groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all funk-rock bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest funk-rock bands of all time, since the most famous funk-rock artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best funk-rock music.

You can click on the funk-rock band names to see more information about that particular notable funk-rock group. If they're near the top of the best funk-rock artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top funk-rock bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the funk-rock band names themselves.

These items, like Jimi Hendrix and Red Hot Chili Peppers include images when available. Every time you vote for an item you like, or think deserves a top spot, that item has a better chance of making it to the top of the list. Make sure to give items you like (Beastie Boys and Peter Gabriel, for example) votes.

All important, significant and iconic names in funk-rock music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new funk-rock bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of funk-rock, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into funk-rock music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good funk-rock bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent funk-rock bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best funk-rock bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest funk-rock musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular funk-rock bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
