Top 10 Best Music Groups

Here's a list of the ten best music groups of all time, according to my own opinion. By 'music group' I mean a musical group, containing at least two members. I'll try to explain as best as I can why I chose a group on that position. Enjoy, I hope you like it.

The Top TenXW

1The BeatlesThe Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.

HOW IS THAT HORRIBLE BAND BIG TIME RUSH #1? Apparently the world has forgotten what a big impact this band has made. They had stunning preformances and wonderful music! That crappy band big time rush does not have any of these things in it. This is why The Beatles are truly the best band of all time, in the whole universe!

It's real sad to see OD AND BTR so high up, when this band broke so many barriers and did so many things in the music world, not to mention the great music they gave us. People, what matters is the music and quality and accomplishments of the band. Good looks, don't matter that much. Folks be smart and vote for music and not looks. When it comes to that The Beatles are infinity times better than some boy bands that will fade in some years and will barely be remembered in the future. - zam67

The Beatles transcended mere music. The world looked to them eagerly for other cultural directions: clothing styles, hair styles, THEY MADE THE FIRST MUSIC VIDEO EVER - for Strawberry Fields Forever - for spiritual and literary guidance. For visual arts guidance. For political guidance; for generational guidance.
They practically re-created the entirety of Western culture.

I hate this group

2One DirectionOne Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an English-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

They are the best of this generation. People gotta accept that if their music really was that crappy as haters think, they wouldn't get sales records over and over again...

I really hope people voting for one direction are joking. If not, I've lost faith in humanity.

I love one direction they should be number two though cause I like btr too though

I love one direction

3Big Time Rush

Big Time Rush is the best band ever. If anyone listens to their music once, he/she would forget every other music. Plus they are good looking and have a great T.V. show too.

Only the Beatles are better than queen. One direction and big time rush are bull.

Yeah like big time rush and one direction are better than queen - itamarlivn

Queens isband that has so many different kinds of music that were hits. They were highly skilled musicians to be able to switch genres and playing styles left and right. I'm sorry, but BTR is nothing, just auto tune.

5Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition ...read more.
6Pink FloydPink Floyd were an English rock band formed in London. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitarist), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and Bass), and Richard ...read more.

This is without a doubt, the most painful, frustrating, and dumb list I have EVER seen in my life. I like how The Beatles are at the top. But One Direction, Big Time Rush, Backstreet Boys, ABBA, and -should be nowhere near here! I don't even think Linkin Park is worthy of the top 200 bands ever. It is absolutely sickening to see people voting for boy bands that will be forgotten in 10 years over musical geniuses such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Rolling Stones, Queen, or Black Sabbath. I could go on all day about how imbecile the people that vote for the boy bands are. IF YOU ARE READING THIS, AND YOU PLACED YOUR VOTE FOR 'ONE DIRECTION' BTR' BACKSTREET BOYS' THE WANTED SUPER JUNIOR, OR LMFAO, PLEASE DO US ALL A FAVOR AND GET OFF THE INTERNET AND LISTEN TO SOME REAL MUSIC. - ryanrimmel

8Linkin ParkLinkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture ...read more.

What! You gotta be kidding... Linkin Park ON 7TH! This band deserves to be on the top... It's the best rock band the world has seen or will ever see... Their music is awesome, and their lyrics are always so realistic and wonderful!

This must be the best group EVER

Far better than modern kids with blonde-bimbo girly fans of one direction

This is the best bands ever

9Backstreet Boys

The Backstreet Boys have sold over 130 million records worldwide. According to Billboard, they are the first group since Sade to have their first seven albums reach the top 10 on the Billboard 200. They rose to fame with their debut international album, Backstreet Boys (1996). In the following year, they released their second international album, Backstreet's Back (1997) and their debut album in the United States which continued the group's success worldwide. They rose to superstardom with their album Millennium (1999) and its follow-up album, Black & Blue (2000). After a three-year hiatus, the band regrouped and have released their comeback album: Never Gone (2005), as well as two further albums Unbreakable (2007) and This Is Us (2009).

Their lyrics is best and they have much knowledge of songs and rythim of every song is best and the they have meaning in every song and they also won best international music group award and all other bands are waste in front of these group and they must be top as well they have given logo of prince of pop... Backstreet Boys rules...

Since the time I entered the pools of hormones backstreet have cooled me and mesmerized the depths of my soul all the way through
Definitely the number 1

I love how all these fangirls and losers have placed one direction over Green Day, Linkin Park and Metallica. This list was obviously created by someone who doesn't know the A's and B's of music. Someone should seriously take this down.

13Maroon 5Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

Even though Maroon 5 has many fans and are considered more of a pop band, they still have many excellent songs including "Payphone" and "Moves like Jagger" that are still played today. They have most definitely left their mark on music, and while they may not be my favorite band, they still deserve some recognition.

Come on, One Direction 2? They must be in top 5. How can we forget their old songs, this love, beautiful goodbye, She will be loved?

Maroon 5 has to be top 5,mehn! their songs like maps, animals, sugar..they are dope!

14The WantedThe Wanted are a British-Irish boy band consisting of members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes.

I heard "The Wanted" group on "The Talk" T.V. show on July 3, 2013. I just turned 70 years of age this past April and... I'M HOOKED ON THE GROUP.

15Jackson 5

ON THIS LIST JACKSONS ARE THE BETS THEY HAVE INCREADIBLE MUSIC AND AN AMAZING BROTHER MICHAEL JACKSON WHICH IS AND WAS THE KING OF POP HE WAS THE BEST LONG LIVE MY LITTLE MJ!

16Fifth Harmony

Hey um no offense but I'll put Fifth Harmony above Little Mix just because of their greater success. But I think both girl bands should be treated equally as they are both the new generations of English girl bands apart from TLC, Destiny's Child etc. I really don't really like it when the harmonizers and mixers start to get into an ugly fight, because mainly one side of the fandom will start posting bad comments on the other, which results in the other fandom starting to get mad and to start a fight with the main cause. So, I hope all fandoms of all current bands will make peace and harmony to the social media, because you know the bands themselves would love ya'll to be happy.

Fifth Harmony is way better than most of the other bands in the list

I will list which band is the BEST is LITTLE MIX there the FIRST GIRL Band to WIN in the UK I'm from England and I'm proud! There singing is perfect I love it secret love song makes me cry. I would put 5h as the worst girl band.

Sexy songs by sexy girls

17Little MixLittle Mix are a British girl group formed in 2011, consisting of members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

Little Mix is not only the first girl group to win the X-Factor, but the first GROUP. This task hadn't been accomplished in the show's 8 year run time until Little Mix achieved it in 2011. In a time where many artists use auto tune and lip-synch, Little Mix stays natural and sing every note perfectly, whether or not they are in the studio or singing live. Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie are not only beautiful on the outside, but beautiful on the inside. They care greatly about Mixers and put in effort whenever they sing, which is evident with every song they write and sing. Their songs are powerful and impact the lives of anyone who hears it. They will make you laugh, cry, smile and inspire you. Little Mix is the best music group.

Little Mix has inspired me in so many ways. Can't wait for Album 3!

Little Mix are the BEST GIRL GROUP they inspired me their cute, funny and beautiful in the inside and outside Leigh Anne, Jade, Jesy and Perrie I love them there style and song says it all they should be proud of themself for there new single album hair it's catchy and their clothes are gorgeous. They deserve this chance.

Little mix are the best
