The Best Electronic Rock Bands/Artists

List RulesOnly electronic rock bands and artists.

This electronic rock bands list ranks the best electronic rock musicians by votes, with the order decided by fans internationally. When you think of electronic rock, bands that use instruments like synthesizers will generally be thrown into that genre. Electro rock first emerged in the early 1970s at the advent of progressive rock, and since then, electronic rock artists have crossed over into genres like synthpop, New Wave, alternative, edm, techno, screamo, and industrial rock. The best electronic rock bands have been able to defy the odds through creativity while attaining critically commercial success. For the sake of this list, we're only going to include bands that have made several electronic rock albums, and eschew the ones who dabbled in it for only one album.

So, who are the best electronic rock artists of all time? Any list of electro rockers has to include the names Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Devo, Muse, New Order, Radiohead, and of course, Nine Inch Nails. When you generally think of electronic rock, these are some of the first bands that will come to mind with legacies that will live on forever. 

That said, it's up to you to determine which electronic rock bands are the best. This list answers the questions "who are the top electronic rock bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest electronic rock musician ever?" Whether you’re an electric aficionado or a new fan of electronic rock music, please vote for the best electronic rock artists based on their overall influence and music (albums and songs), rather than just the most popular or famous electronic rock groups that you've never actually listened to.
