The Top Ten

1
The Beatles
I have to agree the Beatles are the most successful english band of all time I love some of their songs and they are from Liverpool which in my opinion is the best part of the country they are also probably the most iconic group of english people and to top this list so long after they was in their prime is remarkable

It kills me when people trash them. I was born in the wrong time period.

2Led Zeppelin
Better than Beatles! Why? Guitar solos are excellent, Drum beats too... Bass is very good in most songs, and Plant's voice is actually 10/10
Better than the Beatles, Roberts voice is just incredible and Jimmie well you know!
There one of the best that's ever been

3Pink Floyd
go listen to dark side, the wall, and meddle. you'll see why pink floyd pwns and deserves to be #1. there will probably never gonna be a better band than them.

russian

I'm with the Floyd. One Direction may one day be classed as a great band, but to be truly great you have to stand the test of time
Best band of all time, but out of any band I'm glad Beatles are up there

4Queen
Queen is number one on my list. They created amazing songs that people will remember for a long time, I don't think they will ever be missed. Freddie had a beautiful four octave voice, and was a one of the best front men that ever lived. Roger has great drumming skills, and a nice high voice. Brian's guitar skills will never match anybody else's. John was one of the quiet, and most relaxed bass players I've ever seen. Their concerts will never bore you, Freddie always kept the crowd going along with him, with his amazing, strong voice, and his strutting on stage. He would make jokes sometimes laugh out loud. Anyway Queen is truly an amazing band! They truly 'took my breath away'.
Queen is immortal. They are eternal. And everyone knows and (most likely) loves them!
Queen are truly amazing band love listening to them! I think they should be higher up on the table you had some off the best musicians in the band like Freddie mercy, insane singer one of the best singers of all time

7Iron Maiden
Their singer Bruce Dickinson is a polymath. A pilot, fenceman, Radio DJ and various other things he is amazing at. Steve Harris plays the bass with his fingers, and not may people can do that. Their drummer Nicko Mcbrain is one of the best drummers on this planet. Their guitarists Adrian, Dave and Janick are amazing. Every song the band has put out on all of their 15 albums are amazing. And best of all, they're British!

8Black Sabbath

9Oasis
The reason they are one of the greatest british bands ever is because they dominated the 90s with 2 of the greatest albums ever made. Morning Glory and definitely maybe defined the decade and even if they didn't really break america that wasnt due to them not being a great band, it was mostly because whenever they went on tour there they more or less broke up. Even their worse albums are still good, just can't live up to their first two, they also have incredible b sides
BY far the absolute best band in the world due to the amazing songwriting of N Gallagher and the beautiful voice of L Gallagher. The best and most talented band in the history of the world.
The best band in the world

10The Who

Great in every way: deep lyrics, catchy tunes, smashing instruments, unique musicians...


The Contenders

11Judas Priest

12Radiohead
They deserve to be at the top, unlike the Beatles they are daring and creative. They the greatest ever
Listen to Kid A and then The Bends. They have a big variation
The sounds is art

13Deep Purple

14The Kinks
The Kinks have written more great songs than any other English band: end of argument.
It was hard to choose between the Who or the Kinks, but in the end, its always the Kinks. They are such an underrated band, and Dave's amazing guitar is just as underrated. And I think we all agree that musically, Ray Davies was a genius. Mick Avory is one of my top three favourite drummers too, the list is
1:Keith Moon
2:John Bonham
3:Mick Avory :D

15Arctic Monkeys
One Direction should not be on this list...
How are they not in the top 10? And who put one direction on this list
Crying Lightning, Do I Wanna Know, R you Mine, Arabella, Knee Socks, 505
= Amazing

Best Rock Band The World Ever Had!
Linkin park is best in the world

29Fleetwood Mac

30Def Leppard
Come On! How could these guys no be on the list?! Some of the greatest rockers of the 80's!
Their rock of ages is amazing..
They themselves are amazing
Best band in the world. The Beatles r great, but definitely leppard kicks ass

31The Redskins

32Blur
Brit-Pop stars, from the Psychedelic sound of UK No1 hit 'Country House' to Hard Rock 'Song 2' and the mellow, beautiful 2012 single 'Under The Westway'.

33Dire Straits
Amazing band! They have the best songs and perhaps the best guitarist in history! This has to be in the top ten! A truly remarkable band. Not enough credit goes to them.
Such an underrated band. They have great songs, and Mark Knopfler is an absolute genius when it comes to playing the guitar and composing.

34Mumford & Sons

35Half Man Half Biscuit

36Depeche Mode
Should be on that list too

37Electric Light Orchestra
One of the best bands in history! This band has the best producer in history and perhaps singer too, Jeff Lynne. An amazing band! How Can they be this low. VOTE them up. Top 5 band in the world!
Elo the best band ever. Should be number 1. People who were around in the mid to late 70 s would agree how great they were. Jeff Lynn is a genius.

38The 1975
They need to be in that list, they're definitely the best band of this year.

39Keane
Keane has some of the best lyrics and catchy tunes. While some bands provide me with just a few songs to listen to, there are easily ten or more that I can think of for Keane.

40The Housemartins

41Power Quest

42The Stone Roses

43The Levellers

58Skillet
Man inside me I'M really getting pissed off but I'll like to control my anger but no matter what let me be clear at something, whenever there's talk of the legends SKILLET must be there.
Man I don't understand how can one forget them. To me whenever there is talk of the the best in the world. Skillet must be there, they are legends
