The Contenders: Page 10

181 Dirty Pretty Things
182 The Jealous Sound
183 The Orphan, The Poet
184 Painted Skies
185 Dashboard Confessional
186 Beirut

Do they even have a bad song? I doubt it

I'm fairly disappointed at the lack of Beirut on an already pretty bad list, but to see absolutely no mention of them anywhere is heartbreaking. Nantes and Santa Fe are some of the most creative, unique songs in years. Their gorgeous blend of orchestral influence with the fantastic voice of Condon is simply mystifying.

187 The Crookes

Getting better as they go along. Awesome tunes

188 The View

Kyle Falconer is a world-class singer, they have 4 great albums. Massive hits like Same Jeans, Wasted Little DJs, Superstar Tradesman, Shock Horror and Grace, and their live shows are always electric.

190 The Kills

If you've gone through life without having heard The Kills, you aren't living.

194 Sigur Ros Sigur Ros Sigur Rós is an Icelandic post-rock band from Reykjavík, who have been active since 1994. Known for their ethereal sound, frontman Jónsi Birgisson's falsetto vocals, and the use of bowed guitar, the band's music is also noticeable for its incorporation of classical and minimalist aesthetic elements. more.

Love Sigurrós... It's so artistic. Even if you speak Icelandic you can't make out what they're saying but you don't need to because their music is beautiful.

196 The Eels

I find it ridiculous that they aren't currently on this list. Mark Oliver Everett is brilliant and writes excellent tunes such as, " Novacaine for the Soul" and "Fresh Feeling." Wow, I can't bring myself to believe they aren't on here at all.

197 The Boxer Rebellion

They are just fantastic. You have to see them live!

199 The Heavy The Heavy The Heavy are a British indie rock band from Bath, England, formed in 2007 and signed to Ninja Tune imprint Counter Records and the Bad Son Recording Company. The band consists of Kelvin Swaby, Dan Taylor, Spencer Page and Chris Ellul.

Now I think The Heavy should be higher on the list, not 194. Half of the preceding bands are not even indie.

200 The Airborne Toxic Event

They're amazing. Fell in love instantly when I first listened to their song called Sometime Around Midnight
