Some rock fans who saw the list on Twitter weren’t happy with the results, saying Imagine Dragons don’t belong on the chart at all.
Imagine Dragons is the worst band of the decade. I despise their cheap anthemic arena rock sound and all of their songs. I hope we leave them in the 2010’s and forget all about them for the future https://t.co/VI3VgB1xiy

If “bands” like Imagine Dragons, Maroon 5, and Coldplay represents “rock” music, then no wonder most people consider the genre dead.

I enjoy Imagine Dragons as much as the next person, but y’all really need to stop labeling them as a Rock band. Enough. pic.twitter.com/l0l2QTkVfA

There are still fans who believe the band deserve a place on the chart, or are defending thier placements
Obviously a lot of amazing songs that didn’t make this top 10, but there’s some great ones on here for sure.
