116S Club 7
"don't stop never give up"

117Wishbone Ash

118Humble Pie


Best (and most underrated) band from UK now, their sound is very personal, orchestral and mature. If we'd live in a more intelligent world they would be at least in the top5

121Echo & the Bunnymen
Echo and the bunnymen are the best and most underrated bands ever. They should be ranked higher. How the hell did the wanted, Keane, Coldplay and muse get above them?

122The Chameleons
Under rated. Legendary. Amazingly influential and songs that are truly timeless. A top 100 band.

123Enter Shikari
Quirky and a little bit on the insane side with very politicised lyrics, these guys are surely a worthy addition.

124Savoy Brown


126Blind Faith


128The Mission

129The Pipettes


131The Twang

132Pint Shot Riot

133Sisters of Mercy

134Half Man Half Biscuit

135Black Veil Brides
Love this band! All the people in the band Andy Ashley Jinxx Jake and Christian (CC) they are all interpersonal and their music help me and everyone in the BVB Army. They help me through the tough times and I love themxx

136Young Guns
One of the best of bands of the UK recently, Bones have a massive chorus, the vocalist voicenis just wow and they surely know how to play their instruments and rock

137The Jeff Beck Group

138The Jimi Hendrix Experience
They originated in England and 2 of the 3 musicians were English.

139Procol Harum

140Fleetwood Mac

141Mott the Hoople

142Ten Years After

143The Adicts

144Cockney Rejects

145The Damned


147Peter and the Test Tube Babies



150The La's


Why did I need to add this band? Architects are crazy good and innovative among the hardcore/post-hardcore/mathcore/whatever they are scene. They are true visionaries.

153The Courteeners
Amazing band and even better live 10/10
Courteeners forever.

154Barclay James Harvest



157Herman's Hermits

158Culture Club

165Fairport Convention


167Girls Aloud

168The Fall

169Thirteen Senses
Heart touching and deep songs with great lyrics. Will's voice is not the best but is extremely emotional and beautiful.

170Def Leppard
one of my most favorite bands in the world from hard rock, metal, alternative, pop-rock. they are very flexible, the lyrics and music is great. all of them are amazing and rick allen who has only an arm can do fast beats without having another hand to use. def leppard is a legendary band because many artists look up to them.


Keane #1! What has this world come to...
Definitely Leppard is a much better band in the ways of talent, sales, loyalty, quality of albums and of course actually having decent music...
the drummer rick allen can surpass the other drummers in this top tens lists if he has 2 arms til today


I love jls so much why did they lose against Alexandra

172Spice Girls
This is my favorite band WHOO!


173Duran Duran
Unique and the most innovative band of all time. They are the first band to use mtv for their success. And they are the leader of the 2nd british ivasion in the U.S.A. and almost of all 30 years in the music industry and they still rock the world. There no sign of slowing down.
How is this awesome band at number 50?! This band deserves much more than that. Simon LeBon does fantastic on vocals with John Taylor pulling off crazy bass lines. My parents told me that they should be in the top 5, if not top 10.
DD rules the 80's period! 82 -86 and comeback years of 2001 - 2006. They are not the Fab Five for Nothing. They become dormant when original five are not complete. But when complete, It will be their Show!
[Newest]Top 5 of all time

174Green Day

175One Direction
This band deserves top 5 these boy will go somewhere wait what am I saying they already have I love then so did simon that is why he made a deal with them anyways they have been a group for 3 years now they are bigger than the Beatles than they were in the beginning. With their new movie and perfume they will be known in around 30 more years.
Love this band, is the best I recently started to listen to there always (Up all NIght) and its amazing! One Direction its like a little version of the beatles! They have a great career ahead of them! Love them xx
The most funniest and craziest band, full of fun and excitement. Always having a blast and not only have fun by themselves but also entertain people with their great music and sense of humor...
[Newest]THE LAST?! What happen to this page?
