2nd best band ever. Definitely best from Ireland. They have two of the best albums ever- The Joshua Tree & The Unforgettable Fire. Bono's a great vocalist, and them everyone else is underrated. Edge is one of the best guitarists, listen to Pride, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and Until The End Of The World, Clayton's one of the best bassist, listen to New Year's Day, Bullet The Blue Sky, and I Will Follow, and Larry's a great drummer, listen to Sunday Bloody Sunday and Bullet The Blue Sky. Such a talented, creative band.

This is easy to decide. U2 is simply the greatest Irish bands and also one of the greatest bands in general. Bono has an amazing voice The Edge is a very good guitarist.
Other good Irish music artists are:
2: The Cranberries: The Cranberries are like U2 with a female singer.
3: Snow Patrol
4: The Script

#9? What? I've listened to each and every songs of them and I can't see a single reason why they're at #9!

#9? Is this a joke!? The Script are one of the greatest bands ever formed! They at LEAST deserve to be in the Top 3!

6Gary MooreRobert William Gary Moore was a Northern Irish musician, most widely recognised as a singer, songwriter, and virtuoso rock and blues guitarist.

One of the finest musicians ever - his guitar can cry and speak. R.I.P. Gary. - Metal_Treasure

7Rory GallagherWilliam Rory Gallagher was an Irish blues and rock multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and bandleader.

The first Irish superstar... The rest followed but no one could play like Rory... Greatest guitarist ever

The only guitarist who can be compare to Hendrix. The person who paved the way for all the other Irish musicians to come. The man who inspired Brian May, Johnny Marr, Slash and the Edge. The man who got Clapton back into the blues. Rory is, whitout a doubt, the greatest Irish musician ever.

Exact music that I was looking for long time!

11Sinead O'ConnorSinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra.

Great person, singer and writer. Can't not be here.

12EnyaEithne Pádraigín Ní Bhraonáin, known professionally as Enya, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, and producer.

Are you kidding me? Enya in 21?
She deserves top 5 al least.

She's too fantastic to be at 13. She's got to move to at least top 5. Well it's only a matter of time.

13Snow PatrolSnow Patrol are a Northern Irish rock band formed in 1993, consisting of Gary Lightbody, Nathan Connolly, Paul Wilson, Jonny Quinn, and Johnny McDaid.

Brilliant band with great lyrics and music as a whole. Should definitely be in the top ten at least.

Best love song of all time is chasing cars because it is happy and sad

14The Dubliners

Laugh out loud not even in top ten

15The Corrs

The Corrs number 25? The angelic voice of Andrea Corr must be higher.

16The Pogues

One of the absolute greatest bands out of Ireland, with the animosity and fusion of classic Irish folk with modern (at the time) rock. Truly a great band not afraid to get into your face.

Voting because a bus home from a school tour anytime from September till February would not be complete without 'Fairy-tale of New York'

17Flogging Molly

Flogging Molly are not Irish, they are from Los Angeles. Just because they make celtic music, doesn't mean they are Irish.

Who ever said flogging Molly doesn't have an Irish singer is wrong he was born in Dublin republic of Ireland

The lead singer of flogging Molly is Irish American so it counts as Irish music and it is in my opinion the best Irish band

Flogging Molly is a band registered in America. So they aren't an Irish band. - Metal_Treasure
