This is a list of bands from the San Francisco Bay Area, music groups founded in the San Francisco Bay Area, or who have been closely associated with the region. Individual musicians who formed bands under their own name there are included, but not if they are solo artists from the region. The list is grouped by: San Francisco Peninsula/North Bay, East Bay, and South Bay

It is suggested that each list would be better defined by segregation into list by decade band originally founded/active
