The Contenders: Page 2

101Biffy Clyro
Come on, guys... This band has to be the best right now and it wasn't even added to the list!
The guitar riffs are so energetic, the choruses are anthemic and the vocals are fantastic. Deserve to be higher!
Such great anthemic choruses, fantastic verses, energetic guitar riffs and so great live

A truly underrated and brilliant band. They had some great songs many of them quite serious in their and of continue to make some great album.

118S Club 7
"don't stop never give up"

119Wishbone Ash

120Humble 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

123Echo & 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?

124The Chameleons
Under rated. Legendary. Amazingly influential and songs that are truly timeless. A top 100 band.

125Enter Shikari
Quirky and a little bit on the insane side with very politicised lyrics, these guys are surely a worthy addition.

126Savoy Brown


128Blind Faith


130The Mission

131The Pipettes


133The Twang

134Pint Shot Riot

135Sisters of Mercy

136Half Man Half Biscuit

137Black 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

138Young 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

139The Jeff Beck Group

140The Jimi Hendrix Experience
They originated in England and 2 of the 3 musicians were English.

141Procol Harum

142Mott the Hoople

143Ten Years After

144The Adicts

145Cockney Rejects

146The Damned


148Peter and the Test Tube Babies



151The 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.

154The Courteeners
Amazing band and even better live 10/10
Courteeners forever.

155Barclay James Harvest

166Fairport Convention


168Girls Aloud

169The Fall

170Thirteen Senses
Heart touching and deep songs with great lyrics. Will's voice is not the best but is extremely emotional and beautiful.

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
How can you not love this guys? A lot of people say rude things about them but THEY ARE AMAZING. They have accomplished a lot more than they haters have;) They should be in a higher place
