Best Bands and Artists Without Number 1 Single in the UKBogsDollocks Mention these singers or bands and ask people to name one of their number one hits and you normally get a reply that quotes a famous soundtrack.
But there's a snag, the listed have never had the privileges of closing top of the pops or being the last song played before the 7pm Sunday radio news. Yep these have never had a Number 1 in the UK
The Top TenXW
Yes the UKs biggest selling heavy rock band have had literally dozens of charted hits but have hit the number 1 spot.
1 December 2012 in fact was the only time the multiple platinum album sellers made the singles top 10 hitting number 4 thanks to downloads - BogsDollocks
Nothing to wail about here, even in death Iron lion Zion in September 1992 failed reaching number 5 - BogsDollocks
He should have got a #1. I guess its not proper pop music in all honesty - jmepa1234
I must admit she was never my favourite singer - jmepa1234
Could quite easily have been in top 10 - BogsDollocks
Sorry but house of fun gave madness their first number and only number 1. Suggs also scored a number 1 with cilia (check spelling) - BogsDollocks
