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 5The Jackson 5, or Jackson Five, also known as The Jacksons in later years, is an American popular music group. Formed in 1963 under the name the Jackson Brothers, the founding members were Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon.

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 MarsThirty Seconds to Mars (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band consists of Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Miličević.

Of course, take a amazingly talented method actor and take his blood brother to keep beats that inspire Jared Letos vocals rhythm and grab a "3rd" all around guitarist, bassist, pianist, and concerto cello player...gee these guys will en-trance...watch out

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.

Of course not into them...definitely worth top 5

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

Blink 182 revolutionized the pop-punk genre while inspiring most of the biggest pop-punk bands. They also had there own style that very few bands could replicate.

6Three Days GraceThree Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

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!

Also funny thing Adam is so ugly that if he was half way good looking he would have 100 percent more material right?

They're my favourite band, and I disagree with the person that said Adam is ugly.

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

9Nine Inch NailsNine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock/metal band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

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

Plus it's not spelled it's NIN is technically the artist

Great music but doesn't count cause nine inch nails is a killing device used on Jesus Christs hands according to the Holy Bible, it's not technically a number just an adverb

10311311 is an American rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. The band was formed in 1988 by vocalist and guitarist Nick Hexum, lead guitarist Jim Watson, bassist Aaron "P-Nut" Wills.

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

What the what!? 311 is also a channel number for ABC Family. - playstationfan66

The Contenders

113 Doors Down3 Doors Down is an American rock band from Escatawpa, Mississippi that formed in 1996. The band originally consisted of Brad Arnold (vocals/drums), Todd Harrell (bass guitar) and Matt Roberts (guitar). They were soon joined by guitarist Chris Henderson, and later by drummer Richard Liles.

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

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

I agree maybe 2nd to Eve6 and 30 Seconds to Mars

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.

19B-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

20Twenty One Pilots

Why are they only 22? I know they're a newer band, but all of their stuff is amazing. Just listen from Regional at Best. Love this band.
