Legendary band in every respect! From the 70s to now they have just got better and better and have some of the greatest songs ever written to their name.
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.
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!
Bullet for my valentine are amazing! They have changed my life, There's so many amazing songs by them, and 'Tears don't Fall' is my ultimate favourite song out of all the songs I listen to (even matalica). I will forever be a proud Bullet fan! And if you're not a bullet fan then shame on you!
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 goodnightMore comments about Bullet For My Valentine

Should be in the top 10. The best Indie Rock band ever.
The police deserves 2nd as it makes real music and is not like some donkey eg
They are the best Pop Punk band Britain has ever produced.
COMN! HE'S CALLED ERIC CLAPTON!
AND GINGER BAKER!
BEST DRUMMER EVER
My favorite band! One of the best in the world, actually! Listen to any of their songs and you'll be hooked. Personally, I recommend Empire. Still my favorite song, even after listening a hundred times.
One of the best bands today after Muse
DUH. OBVIOUS. They have everything a legendary band has... Please, Keane on number 1? AT LEAST put the Beatles as the number one. Or Anything else. And why is Bullet for my Valentine in here?More comments about Kasabian
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.
This is my favorite band WHOO!
They are underrated but they're amazing, every song they had is perfect and they're great musicians, every time I listen to them I really feel the music I just love to listen to this band, they had really good lyrics N. N
Wow, how come they are not top 10? They are great, sold millions of albums and many famous songs! How about smoke on the water? Anyone? THEY ROCK!
They Rock, THEY SHOULD BE IN THE TOP 5!
THE ARE SPACE TRUCKIN' COME ON, COME ON, COME ON AFTER THE WAR ALL BANDS WERE GREAT! OH MAN
Should be higher I can't believe keane, busted, spice girls, one direction and mcfly are higher.
Come on, obvious number one choice!
Far to low, 50th anniversary coming up so why oh why is this band voted so low!
Yeah totally agree, this band is running longer than the beatles and zep were for like 2.5 times! Had more singles than anyone! 22 top ten hit singles... And led? But no status quo is no rock (sarcasm), they only play three chord (Screw that old joke! )... Hello people, rock and roll isn't more than blues, which is three chords! Jailhouse rock, how many chords are in there! People who place bands like zep and beatles on top, are just mainstream rockers, only like what reaches the top ten in lists! I have my own taste, and Quo is the best band the world has ever seen!
Why the HELL isn't this band in the top ten! One of the most successful British bands ever! More UK hit singles than any band on this list! Get a grip people!More comments about Status Quo

This band should be way more popular than they are. Amazing, emotional and beautiful music... Those who haven't heard them, listen to their song No One Can!
I have to say I'm not surprise of the ranking... But still, Franz Ferdinand has a unique sound (which I'm crazy about! ), an amazing singer (okay, every British band does... ) and will have an important place in my heart, as well as in my Ipod forever!
If we're judging this poll based on acts that actually British, then Westlife has no business being on this list for obvious reasons. Franz Ferdinand on the other hand, has every right to be here simply because it is a british band.
They're amazing, and I do mean it. The drums, the guitars and the rhythm are unique! They sound like any other band, and that's hard to find nowadaysMore comments about Franz Ferdinand
Probably the most unique band to come out of the UK. An acquired taste that, once tried, won't go away! You just want more! Extreme but not pretentious, a must for true metal fans.
Every member past or present has top-10 potential, whether by quality and power of vocals or being the best concert violinist ever. Together they make the best sound and visual performance I've ever known.
Keane, McFly and coldplay in the first 3 positions! Is this a joke?
Led Zep at no6? This must be rigged. The Beatles at number 4 is a surprise, as this overrated boring band always gets voted number 1 as predictably as Jimi Hendrix gets voted number 1 as a guitarist (Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck are far superior)
No rolling stones, Deep Purple, The Who, Black Sabbath, Free, Pink Floyd, definitely Leppard and many many more.
So for all you young hipsters who think bands who dress like accountants and have no guitar solos and are void of any soul, are boring to listen to and and are devoid of any originality, Here a list of some British bands ( well English really) that have to be heard if you want to be able to judge what real music is all about.
Barcley James Harvest
Brian Auger and The Trinity with Julie Driscoll
Genesis (with peter Gabriel
The Small Faces
Mott the Hoople
And many more I can't think of off the top of my head.
People need to go back to the beginning and search out bands from the 60's, 70's and 80's to get a real picture of what a really great band is; and Keane, McFly and Coldplay are not it!
Led Zep should be number 1 followed directly by The Rolling stones!
And by the bloody Albums and not those damned compilations that leave out some brilliant songs of any band.
This is my favourite band ever, I am from the philippines I mwish their come back again to our country
just like they come here on eat bulaga and sing 5678
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.
A Trick of the Night FTW
