43MGMTMGMT is an American rock band formed in 2002 by Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden. After the release of their first album, the members of their live band, Matthew Asti, James Richardson and Will Berman, joined the core band in the studio.

Surely much higher than 47? Maybe a bit mainstream but if the Monkeys make first MGMT is a top ten.

Beautiful band, deserves top 10 status for sure
