The Contenders: Page 2

21Depeche Mode
Most underrated band in music history. Their music is so far ahead of its time that most people cannot comprehend it. If after you listen to them and then disagree, you seriously need to re-evaluate your life. Better than the beatles by lightyears. Best band in the universe PERIOD.
The absolute best. When will they ever get their long, long overdue recognition? On a completely different level to anyone else. Decades before their time. Always have been. Always will be. Enough said!
Depeche Mode is #1. Acknowledge this fact Britain. The rest of the world has. So sick of them being underrated. #41.. Just look who's above them... Enough said!
[Newest]20 years ahead of their time and still going strong. Never really got the recognition from the establishment they deserve but from the army of fans that love them and always will we know whose the best.

22Asking Alexandria
Come on, seriously, no. 30, the deserve better than this. Its asking Alexandria of course the best scream band of all time
The only reason I like the UK is because of Asking Alexandria!

23Bullet For My Valentine
This is not one my favorite bands rather only the most favorite band I ever liked. All the songs are just like a bullet to me that pinches into my heart. Specially- all this things I hate, tear's don't fall and say goodnight
This young Welsh band is unbelievably good at their genre - kind of like a nu Metallica. Not lacking talent either!
FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND (Wales) and HUNDRED REASONS (England) should be on this best UK band list!
The best band ever! Who the hell is not voting for them? Just listen to "Tears Don't Fall", "Waking The Demon" and "Your Betrayal". You won't want to hear anything else after that!

24Yes
Not the most accessible compared to Coldplay, The Beatles, etc., but Yes has the most euphoric music I've ever heard. Listening to Yes feels like flying.
Their music takes you to another world. It wasn't made for radio airplay, and it's not always easy to digest. It's just one of those things you either get or you don't. And for those who do get it, nothing is better.

25The Script
What? This band is not in number 1? What happened to you guys? I mean, danny has a really great and unique voice. Their songs are really catchy and wonderfully made.. I mean. Wow! This should be at the number 1 spot. The man who can't be moved is really great. Straight from the heart. Breakeven? The best! For the first time? Wow! The best =D
Sir's you're still the number one and the best for me.. Keep it up idols.. I'm a script fan forever and ever..
I love THE SCRIPT who sings HALL OF FAME
[Newest]Why 25th they should be the BEST!

26Feeder
Can't believe Feeder aren't higher than this. Most underrated UK rock band ever.

27The Cure
One of the best bands in the world! Just listen to songs like 'Lullaby' or 'Pictures of you' and you see what I mean. Why is this band on place 25?! Jesus Christ...
Epic song writing which ranges from great poetry to bright pop. Bi-polar as art and brilliant to enjoy.
Best band in the world
[Newest]Best band of uk

28The Police
It deserves to be in top ten
The police deserves 2nd as it makes real music and is not like some donkey eg
Justin bieber

29Kaiser Chiefs
I think this is one of the best bands ever! How come is it the 39 position?

I still get crazy when I listen to "Ruby".

I consider this bands as one of my favorites bands in addition with Van Halen.
Why is this band so low?

30Sex Pistols
The Sex Pistols, put PUNK on the front pages. The Sex Pistols influenced a vast number of bands to this day. Not only in music but fashion as we'll, that you can see today.
What the heck is mcfly and keane doing there!? They're not even the best band in their genre! R you kidding me? And where's the clash!? Where's the punk movement!? Pistols and Clash should be at least top 15! They made punk so popular (along with Ramones of course) and influence so many people!
Sex Pistols Rock The Cashbash just like the clash

31Bring Me the Horizon
This. Band. Is. Amazing. They have made it further than most of the bands here, and Oli Sykes have one of the best voices in the world. Not only are their songs written perfectly, but they save lives. These should definitely be number one, as they are one of the best known bands in the world.
This band is juat brilliant they are totally my fave band as they have helped me through a lot in my life and their lyrics have personally helped me and I was able to relate to their dark stories behind the lyrics
I love this band & I wish it could be the best Beitish Band of all time!

32Pulp
Best band ever. Love you guys!
Jarvis is my hero.

33Joy Division
Almost in top 20! That voice, that bass, that drums, the guitar... What an atmosphere. Unkown pleasures for your ears.

34Busted
They only had two albums and I still think that those songs are better than a lot out there today sung by bands who didn't even write those songs, and can't play instruments. Their style of Pop-Punk was like nothing else and they are the 'secret' inspiration of a lot of bands who are famous today. Some of their songs trigger emotions and all of them have the most amazing lyrics and the most catchy melodies.

35King Crimson
The origin if prog rock right here. Like yes, they defined their genre and hove the most unique sounding songs. But I'll admit some of their songs are just noise which may turn people off.

36Cream
COMN! HE'S CALLED ERIC CLAPTON!
AND GINGER BAKER!
BEST DRUMMER EVER

37Pet Shop Boys
Seriously? No 41? Over 100 million worldwide sales and 30 continuous years in the industry. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe are a genius of music writing with the ability to span many genres. Long may them continue.
The pet shop boys are so underrated. Not really a band.. but definitely Best british duo. If not The worlds best duo! Timeless and catchy songs.

38The Kinks
WHAT! The Kinks, one of the greatest and most quintessentially British bands of all time 64. This is ridiculous they are in the same league as The Who and The Beatles no doubt. With songs like "Waterloo Sunset" and "Sunny Afternoon" also early classics like "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of The Night".
Gotta agree with above. The kinks have more quality tracks than anybody. They're a bit off centre/quirky/unique and definitely the inspiration for so many bands even today.
Founders of heavy metal, social commentary and the most british of all british bands

39Manic Street Preachers
Best british band of last 20 years.. Absolutely and without a doubt released the singular best album ever with holy bible. give it a listen

dazter69

35?!? What? This band definitely better than that.
Definitely should be at least among ten!

40Moody Blues
"To our childrens, children, children" is a rock-pop masterpiece. And there's so much more. No other band on this list comes close. They should be number 1.
Look at their library! Top 10!
