You've probably heard a ton of reggae rock on the radio over the years, and even if you aren't familiar with the faces behind the music. Also called ragga metal, the genre remains popular today, especially on the California coast, where reggae rock initially spawned from. 

So, what are the best reggae rock bands? Any list has to start with the likes of Sublime (and even Sublime with Rome), 311, Fishbone, Rebelution, Iration, Slightly Stoopid and the Dirty Heads. These are recognized as some of the greatest reggae rock bands ever and with good reason. They are widely popular and their songs remain staples both in concert and on radio. Their material continues to resonate with fans and thus, it makes sense that they're considered among the best reggae rock bands.
