46The KLF

The KLF are the most underrated group in the history of the universe; it's like nobody's heard of them but me! Come on people, "The White Room" is the most talented, finished and perfect album of all time! Nobody knows that, for crying out loud!

47New Order

I ADORE New Order! A lot of people think, '"Blue Monday", yeah, a good song. ' Then they move on. I think they deserve more recognition, particularly for other songs such as "Temptation" and "Crystal", which fewer people know about. They're great!

Prefer joy division but still a great band...

Vocals are amazing. No one can do screamo like Oli Skyes. This band deserves to be up here somewhere. They've saved lives, and aren't money grabbing thieves.
