41 Foster the People

Torches is by far one of the best produced music albums of the century. With hits like Pumped Up Kicks, Waste, and Don't Stop (Color on the Walls), it provides a fresh new perspective on national problems we face every day. Mark Foster has an incredible voice and a talent for songwriting. He draws inspiration from his own troubled past, and seems to enjoy combining great sounds with deep lyrics. Foster the People is widely underappreciated and they still have a successful future ahead of them.

I love this band I listen to it every day you the bomb mark foster

FOSTER THE PEOPLE has such unique music.. They should be in top 10

Foster the people 32nd? They should be at least top ten

42 Gorillaz Gorillaz Gorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs.

I was first introduced to Gorillaz by my friend. The first song I heard was Feel Good Inc. I got hooked immediately and I haven't heard a song I don't enjoy.

43 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

Fall out boy a newcomer? Jesus get this band to one. This is an amazing band because the music is just amazing and they have like songs for everything. Also with the different eras, there's songs for everyone to love. The band members are also super inspiring and they are just amazing.

44 The Wombats
45 OK Go
46 MGMT MGMT MGMT is an American rock band formed in 2002 by Benjamin Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden. After the release of their first album, the members of their live band, Matthew Asti, James Richardson and Will Berman, joined the core band in the studio.

Surely much higher than 47? Maybe a bit mainstream but if the Monkeys make first MGMT is a top ten.

Beautiful band, deserves top 10 status for sure
