This list of the top pop rock bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Pop 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 pop rock bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest pop rock bands of all time, since the most famous pop rock artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best pop rock music.

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

List features items like Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus. Downvote your least favorite items and upvote the best ones to see your favorites rise to the top. Always vote for things like Rihanna or Katy Perry if you like them.

The list includes all new pop 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 pop rock, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into pop 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 pop rock bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent pop rock bands.

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

You can change the order of the list by having your Google circles vote too. (84 items)
