Best Math Rock Bands/Artists

Math rock artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good math rock bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top math rock bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Math 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 math rock bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest math rock bands of all time, since the most famous math rock artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best math rock music.

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

The Mars Volta and Umphrey’s McGee are only the beginning of the artists on this list. Make sure to upvote the best teams/people, because they deserve it. Downvote the artists you hate (...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead, Mogwai, etc.) or show them some love by voting them up if you like them.

All important, significant and iconic names in math 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 math 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 math rock, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into math 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 math rock bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent math rock bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best math rock bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest math 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 math rock bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.

Share the list with your friends to see how their opinions stack up against yours. (126 items)
