Best British Rock Bandsroflcash4
The Top TenXW
Listen. I don't understand how anyone can listen to Elanore Rigby, Paint it Black or Black Dog and not completely understand why Beatles, Stones and Zeppelin are now and always will be the top three Greatest British Bands Ever. PERIOD. End Topic.
That said, four through ten are seriously up for debate but number 4 is Queen. 'enough Said. The rest of you can fight over 5...
Why is Zeppelin #1? The Beatles had way more singles and all time better hits!
No love for The Beatles, they are never put at the top of these lists but they should undoubtedly be at the top.
Best band ever and no one can disagreeV5 Comments
I put every band on this list in a playlist EXCEPT Judas Priest and Iron Maiden... My favorite playlist EVER!
Amazing where the hell would I be with out these beautifully brilliant people
Same as Pink Floyd, a lot of their albums are so underratedV3 Comments
Powerhouse band of four ingenious writers with different styles, songs covering every topic from time difference when travelling at near light speed to heart breaking songs about their lead singer's death, Queen is one of the most influential and long-lasting rock bands in history.
The greatest live band of all time, no question about it!
QUEEN IS BETTER THAN EVERY SINGLE BAND! This band INSPIRED other British bands... People don't know music.
LONG LIVE QUEEN!
Freddie Mercury + Brian May = one of the greatest bands of all timeV3 Comments
Not my favourite but still amazing! They are unique and their guitar solos are amazing! - HollyRolo
The absolute best; better than the Beatles, no matter what any Beatles fan or Beatle says. They are unbeatable.
One of my favourites and a lot of their albums apart from Dark Side of the Moon and the Wall are so underrated
PLEASE! All you Stones haters who say they're old and dried up, Please for your fathers' sake, read early Stephen King and listen to young Stones. Master King will teach you what it means to be a Stones fan.V1 Comment
The Who are way underrated and deserve much more respect. Anyone who hasn't listened to Quadrophenia cannot call themselves a music fan.
Best with led zeppelin and rolling stones and iron maiden - shatti
Home to some of the greatest guitar riffs!
Great! Best live band ever in my opinion
I overrated the beatles and stones because I knew there would be a riot in England if I didn't have them in the top 5. I came later so in my opinion Motorhead, Judas Priest, Saxon, and especially Iron Maiden are all way better than the Beatles, Stones, Led Zep, and Queen. I couldn't cheat Iron Maiden outta the number one spot, they've earned it. - roflcash4
Hallowed be thy name
Listen to it and youll understand why it deserves top spot
I think that Muse is the best band in the 21st Century. Matt is one of the best guitarists and especially one of the best singers in rock history, no doubt. Chris is one of the best bassists and what can I say about Dom, along with John Bonham they dominate the world of music... They are the Best!
I love Muse, but I do like a lot of the other bands on this list. Muse are my number 1 band - HollyRolo
I love Muse! They are unique and one of the only good modern bands out there! - HollyRolo
Most Rock iconic bandV3 Comments
Listen to Paranoid Android, Creep, Karma Police, The Bends, Bones etc etc etc and you'll understand why Radiohead need to be higher in this list! - HollyRolo
I'd give my left ball to write something as good as Okay Computer!
Vote more please Radiohead deserve more higher rank
They should be higher, at least above Muse.V2 Comments
They went for there debut album in 94 to playing 2 nights to 150,000 people at Knebworth 2 years later, where about 2.6 million people applied for tickets. In terms of which british band is actually the best, it's obviously The Beatles. But Oasis are my favourite band
My all time favourite band, people forget how big they were, all 7 of their albums went to #1 in the UK!V1 Comment
They are truly amazing.They are so creative with Jonny's guitar solos, Chris plays piano so well, Guy is amazingly awesome at bass, and I like how Will sings a lot. Their album Mylo Xyloto is just WAY OVER THE TOP AWESOME!
After Oasis, they are probably the best band of the last 15 years
LOVED their song "Clocks" since I was young.
Innovation between each records, good double guitar, excellent vocalist, big influence other for metal bands.
Is there any thing more complimentary than stummer's vocals and jones's riffs? They are more than just a punk band and tried things that no other band had ever done before. I grew up with this band and I they wont get old
Best punk band ever, and where are the Pistols?
How is muse, coldplay and Radiohead above them!?!
