Best Bands from the UKbiscuits

Since when should Blur be this far down the list?!?! Are people insane? Blur absolutely rock!
I am furious at the fact that blur have ranked below the pet shop boys. The pet shop boys! I mean, the pet shop boys are a lot of fun, but I defy you to find one way they are better than blur. And you know what, I went into this list going "it's okay if oasis is listed above blur, that so-called battle of Britpop ended as soon as it began, they're both good, it doesn't matter"-- but honestly!? How did oasis make top ten and blur came in number forty? The mind reels!
Blur has always experimented and didn't always use the same formula. People should really look beyond "Song 2"...Songs like "The Universal" or "This Is A Low", truly underappreciated band.
Why does Blur rank so low on this list? They are awesome, why only 42?V 10 Comments
one of my most favorite bands in the world from hard rock, metal, alternative, pop-rock. they are very flexible, the lyrics and music is great. all of them are amazing and rick allen who has only an arm can do fast beats without having another hand to use. def leppard is a legendary band because many artists look up to them. - ronluna
Definitely Leppard is the type of band which you can really get into their music. They definitely should be in the top ten instead of Keane and Muse who haven't been around as long or influenced as many artists.
the drummer rick allen can surpass the other drummers in this top tens lists if he has 2 arms til today - ronluna
What?! , who on earth voted for the other bands, definitely Leppard is one of the biggest, who made this list...some of these bands that are on the top suck, such as Coldplay, blackeil birdsV 5 Comments
This band is amazing. They have a lot of swag. Its hard 2 choose between one direction and the wanted
Not so nice but a little they can never beat up till one direction
This band is amazing, I hope it rises through the list to be in at least the top 20
The wanted is uk band boy name are max george... Nathan sykes... Jay mcguiness... Tom parker... Siva kaneswaran I love you the wantedV 4 Comments
Quirky and a little bit on the insane side with very politicised lyrics, these guys are surely a worthy addition.
They've released 8 of the most influential rock albums ever. Very underrated overlooked band.
"To our childrens, children, children" is a rock-pop masterpiece. And there's so much more. No other band on this list comes close. They should be number 1.V 1 Comment
WHAT! The Kinks, one of the greatest and most quintessentially British bands of all time 64. This is ridiculous they are in the same league as The Who and The Beatles no doubt. With songs like "Waterloo Sunset" and "Sunny Afternoon" also early classics like "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of The Night".
Top four easily. Ray Davies' quality writing, combined with perhaps the first hard-rock guitar sound of brother Dave (and his little green amp) and you have memorable sounds and songs that spanned the '60's through the '80's. Listen to "Tired of Waiting" and then "Destroyer". Amazing repertoire.
Gotta agree with above. The kinks have more quality tracks than anybody. They're a bit off centre/quirky/unique and definitely the inspiration for so many bands even today.
Top 3 band for me - Ray has probably written more great songs than anyone except Bowie.V 3 Comments
How is this so far down on the list lol you people are insane lol I saw some worse bands before gorillaz
73?!?! WHAT Gorillaz is by FAR one of the BEST Bands. They deserve at least top 10!
Come the band has like its own genre
Murdoc is hotV 4 Comments
Possibly the greatest live band ever and a huge benefactor to the rock scene entirely
They originated in England and 2 of the 3 musicians were English.
COMN! HE'S CALLED ERIC CLAPTON!
AND GINGER BAKER!
BEST DRUMMER EVER
47? Bunch of wankers voting.
You have Cream currently below "Gorillaz" and "Mumford and Sons."
I really don't know what to say to people like you. Unngg, ummpph, urrg, maybe, as I drop deuce on your foreheads, you ignorant millennial cretins.
As if this super, ground breaking band was left out. Give your head a shake.V 1 Comment
Beyond brilliant.. We in the US are jealous we do not get to see them anymore.. A heartbreaker
Unique sounds in my top 3 bands of all time.
Pure class! Awesome band! So underrated...
Unbelievable band, very difficult to pigeon hole, class act
One of the great british bands of the 70's, many of the higher placed bands, dream of creating music half as good as Roxy produced.
Really should be much higher, great band.
I like very much, and the recent Brian Ferry interpret Bod Dylan songs in magnific
Josh Voice always amazing altrough it in a bad song.. Almost they song amazing.. Just listen their songs and look the lyric and video.. Amazing..
One of the greatest bands of 2012
You Me At Six has produced an amazing album 'Sinners Never Sleep' and re-introduced uk rock music into the charts
Should be higher I can't believe keane, busted, spice girls, one direction and mcfly are higher.
Come on, obvious number one choice! - asdfalexia
The Clash along with The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, and so many other great punk bands of the mid 70s. Created a new way of listening and understanding music. Their music can be heard today. Almost 40 years later, and be consider, today's music, with all the problems that we have.
The clash is the best band everV 1 Comment
Yeah totally agree, this band is running longer than the beatles and zep were for like 2.5 times! Had more singles than anyone! 22 top ten hit singles... And led? But no status quo is no rock (sarcasm), they only play three chord (Screw that old joke! )... Hello people, rock and roll isn't more than blues, which is three chords! Jailhouse rock, how many chords are in there! People who place bands like zep and beatles on top, are just mainstream rockers, only like what reaches the top ten in lists! I have my own taste, and Quo is the best band the world has ever seen!
Why the HELL isn't this band in the top ten! One of the most successful British bands ever! More UK hit singles than any band on this list! Get a grip people!
Should be top 10 all the way. A band that has not and I doubt, will be bettered, for their hard work and musical integrity. Love 'em or loathe 'em, Quo have been the backbone of UK music for too long to be so low in this chart!
There is no band that has a better long term record of success than Quo. They blow the doors off the place when they perform live. I can't believe people don't want top give them their due.V 3 Comments
