Best Steampunk Bands

List Criteria: Vote up and add all of your favorite steampunk bands, and rock out!

Steampunk artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good steampunk 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 steampunk bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Steampunk 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 steampunk bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest steampunk bands of all time, since the most famous steampunk artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best steampunk music.

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

The list you're viewing contains items like Voltaire and Chris Vrenna. Make sure to vote for your favorites. If you're not a fan of Rasputina or Abney Park, then vote those down so that the list takes your preferences into account.

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

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

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