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

146M People

147Peter and the Test Tube Babies



150The La's

151Echo & the Bunnymen


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.

154Enter Shikari
Quirky and a little bit on the insane side with very politicised lyrics, these guys are surely a worthy addition.

155The Courteeners
Amazing band and even better live 10/10
Courteeners forever.

156Barclay James Harvest

157Def 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

Their two albums Up All Night and Take Me Home, released in 2011 and 2012 respectively, broke several records, topped the charts of most major markets, and generated hit singles, including "What Makes You Beautiful" and "Live While We're Young".
