Best Bands from the UKbiscuits
The Contenders: Page 3XW
Quirky and a little bit on the insane side with very politicised lyrics, these guys are surely a worthy addition.
They've released 8 of the most influential rock albums ever. Very underrated overlooked band.
"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.V1 Comment
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".
Top four easily. Ray Davies' quality writing, combined with perhaps the first hard-rock guitar sound of brother Dave (and his little green amp) and you have memorable sounds and songs that spanned the '60's through the '80's. Listen to "Tired of Waiting" and then "Destroyer". Amazing repertoire.
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.
Many won't remember, or know them. Ray Davis was a great songwriterV2 Comments
73?!?! WHAT Gorillaz is by FAR one of the BEST Bands. They deserve at least top 10!
Come the band has like its own genreV5 Comments
As if this super, ground breaking band was left out. Give your head a shake.V1 Comment
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!
Simply the best UK band of all time!
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
COMN! HE'S CALLED ERIC CLAPTON!
AND GINGER BAKER!
BEST DRUMMER EVER
Beyond brilliant.. We in the US are jealous we do not get to see them anymore.. A heartbreakerV2 Comments
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. - ronluna
Definitely Leppard is the type of band which you can really get into their music. They definitely should be in the top ten instead of Keane and Muse who haven't been around as long or influenced as many artists.
the drummer rick allen can surpass the other drummers in this top tens lists if he has 2 arms til today - ronluna
Seen them 3 times. Fantastic riffs. Joe Elliot has great voice. One armed drummer. Come on, man!V5 Comments
Really should be much higher, great band.
I like very much, and the recent Brian Ferry interpret Bod Dylan songs in magnific
Josh Voice always amazing altrough it in a bad song.. Almost they song amazing.. Just listen their songs and look the lyric and video.. Amazing..
One of the greatest bands of 2012
You Me At Six has produced an amazing album 'Sinners Never Sleep' and re-introduced uk rock music into the charts
Should be higher I can't believe keane, busted, spice girls, one direction and mcfly are higher.
Come on, obvious number one choice! - asdfalexia
The Clash along with The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, and so many other great punk bands of the mid 70s. Created a new way of listening and understanding music. Their music can be heard today. Almost 40 years later, and be consider, today's music, with all the problems that we have.
Oh come on, TOP 5! This page is not realistic
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!
Should be top 10 all the way. A band that has not and I doubt, will be bettered, for their hard work and musical integrity. Love 'em or loathe 'em, Quo have been the backbone of UK music for too long to be so low in this chart!
The best band aroundV2 Comments
Incredible band with 5 consecutive number 1 albums and over 20 top 20 songs and 11 top 5 singles definitely should be much higher than it is.
They deserve at least top 20 spot in ALL time UK ranking and top 3 ranking in current time. They're amazing! Cheers from Slovenia!
See them once you need to keep seeing themV1 Comment
this is a joke listen to
stone roses debut its one of the most importaint albums ever made without this there would be no oasis. simples
Please tell me how the stone roses are 76? This is real music should be at least in the top ten! If not number one! "International Continental"
Can't believe the roses are 75. Ian brown is genius. The best debut album of all time. Inspirational to so many then and now...
One of the best bands of all time! How so far down the list?V4 Comments
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 nowadays
I love them! They are awesome! They deserve to get more votes! C'mon ppl! Vote for them its Franz Ferdinand duh! Every song is a hit c:V1 Comment
