Best Bands from the UK


The Contenders: Page 6

101 James

Can't believe how low James have been ranked and some bands that are ranked higher! Superb lyrics great music and one of the best live performers our there!

Probably the best live band ever and a career that has spanned 3 decades should be so much higher

Amazing live band

102 Blue Blue

Great band with awesome songs like ONE LOVE, ALL RISE, IF YOU COME BACK and many more

The best band in my opinion @ 105 what should be in top 1o

103 Tears for Fears Tears for Fears Tears for Fears are an English pop/rock band formed in 1981 by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith. Founded after the dissolution of their first band, the mod-influenced Graduate, they were initially associated with the new wave synthesizer bands of the early 1980s but later branched out into mainstream rock more.

The music you don't hear from them on the radio is some of the most underrated, underappreciated works of musical art. Many songs that they've made have some of the best flows and lyrics for any alternative band.

Underrated band...needs more appreciation

104 Wi-Fi Band
105 The Libertines

This band was a best from the best, this band are much better than other indies band in UK.

106 Echo & the Bunnymen

Echo and the bunnymen are the best and most underrated bands ever. They should be ranked higher. How the hell did the wanted, Keane, Coldplay and muse get above them?

107 Bananarama

A truly underrated and brilliant band. They had some great songs many of them quite serious in their and of continue to make some great album.
A Trick of the Night FTW

108 Funeral for a Friend
109 Missing Andy

111 The Yardbirds The Yardbirds The Yardbirds are an English rock band formed in London in 1963 that had a string of hits during the mid-1960s, including "For Your Love", "Heart Full of Soul" and "Over Under Sideways Down".

The Yardbirds, currently with 0%, below Bananarama and Celtic Woman.

I weep for our lost civilization. The film "Idiocracy" was divine prophecy.

The same thing with Genesis, Saxon, Whitesnake, and a few others. - Powerfultekin

112 Lower Than Atlantis
113 The Redskins
114 Slade Slade V 1 Comment
115 Elbow

This is one of the best bands to come out of Manchester in my opinion and should really be in the top 20.

Best (and most underrated) band from UK now, their sound is very personal, orchestral and mature. If we'd live in a more intelligent world they would be at least in the top5

116 Madness

Most be no.25

117 Wham!
118 Frankie Goes to Hollywood
119 Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree Porcupine Tree were an English rock band formed by musician Steven Wilson in 1987. The band began essentially as a solo project for Wilson, who created all of the band's music.

Seriously Porcupine tree at 193! Is this a joke.? Steven Wilson is top class. Should be under top 20 easily

120 The Exploited
