Best Bands with a Number in the Band Name

Typically, you know a new band is going to fade quickly when they have a number in the band name, especially if it is just tacked on there for no good reason. These bands have deviated from the norm and have made it big in spite of their band name.

The Top TenXW

1The Jackson 5

This band is simply amazing, 5 brothers pulling up a very light, meaningful album... I honestly don't wanna single out anyone of them, everyone got some talent from jackie, tito, jermaine, marlon... however young Michael Jackson is undeniably a fascination, like never before... a little kid singing far beyond his age... that's the distinction between talented, gifted and innate genuine talent, what Michael Jackson has is innate and genius, like magic... It just send you smiling with amazement all the time, he's just too good.. and... so cute - graciadolinobv

They are always number one... the guys are great... xoxo - love4mjj

Of course the Jackson 5 is #1! Greatest group ever, along with The Jacksons, with a number or without a number! - MJforevertheKing

230 Seconds to Mars
3Avenged Sevenfold (A7X)

When I saw this list, I immediately thought of 30 Seconds to Mars, Blink, U2, and A7X at the top. Seeing the JACKSON 5 there was just not fair. Of course they were good, but should they really count? THey certainly don't deserve their 52% of votes while A7X exists. Listen to Beast And The Harlot by A7X and you'll know what I mean.

A7X is much better than j5 or 30 Seconds to Mars. a7x has got it all. super drumming, cool guitar solos, good vocals. the kind of things that they do requires some real skill. not like some pop artist who becomes famous overnight (and has no skill at all)

I don't think The Jackson 5 should even count. I mean... What?

A7X is the best, it goes without saying. They're better than 30 Seconds to Mars, too.

I don't think I even need to say anything. Just listen to ONE of their songs and you'll see.

4U2

U2 doesn't deserve this place, he should be the on 1st place. Not too loud, not too boring, just PERFECT!. Jackson 5 were very good on their time but, come on, be realistic they had their time of awesomness and that time has passed - juandavidnogueramontoya

Best in the world and better then marcy playground they r weird u2 is the best

U2 Rock, they are of course the best band of all times with a number in it... Love those guys... One is awesome With or Without You is very very beautiful I Lve U2

6Three Days Grace

This band blows my MIND! They are in my top 10 favorite bands list. They Should be up higher because Adam Gontier has a awesome sexy voice that I will always remember!

Three Days Grace is the most amazing flipping band ever! I LOVE THEM!

7Moi dix Mois

This band is pure art. Created by the gothic lolita icon mana-sama and creates a gothic metal sound with industrial effects and deep nocturnal image

9Nine Inch Nails

does spelling the number count?
even if trent is awesome - blaqksails92

10311

It does not define them, much like people have trouble defining their sound. Plus its the police code for indecent exposure. - Lemonjelo

311 is the best. the names is different, but cool. just like them. down for the unity! - 311_fan

The Contenders

113 Doors Down

3 Doors Down is the best current band, in my belief.

Are you kidding me, 3 doors down is easily in top 3.

16The Four Tops
17B-52's

OBVIOUS CHOICE! Although I DO love Nine Inch Nails, I gotta go with the B-52's here 'cause their first album is one of the greatest new wave/punk albums ever. There's a moon in the sky, it's called the moon... lol! It was 6060-842! And I'm waiting for you! Dial the number to call, get no answer at all. Hello? I'm sorry. Hello?! I'm sorry. HELLO?! I'm sorry. lol. And there they saw a rock, but it wasn't a rock, it was a rock lobster! - asdfalexia

185 Seconds Of Summer

Just because they have majority female fans doesn't mean they don't make good music

They are the best band ever so vote NOW

They might be idiots sometimes but the music they make is good. They have a lot of songs about being social outcasts, broken families and everything being okay in the end.
They're a pop-punk band, not a boyband :)
Listen to them if you need to chill or feel not-so-lonely.
