Three professors of their instruments having more of a musical argument than a collaboration. I liked that fierce weirdness. Amazing energy!

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 ever

140 McFly

McFly? McFly's the best band. I think they just created a new style than anyone can like. If you listen to some old McFly's songs you'll realize they sound like The Beatles (like a new Beatles' style). Their last albums totally changed it's style, but I think they're still unique. It's easy to identify yourself with their lyrics... Those inspirational and fabulous lyrics. Don't forget about the melody. The melody of their songs are just amazing. The way they play their instruments, the way Tom and Danny sing while they play the guitar, Dougie's style to rock with his bass, and Harry's form to play the drums is just HANDSOME. McFLY's my life and no one's gonna change that! MCFLY ROCKS.

They sound like the Beatles, because there was something called 'the Beatles'; without the Beatles there would be no McFly. Also, copying is technically bad in music, no originality. Also, "The way they play their instruments". You're saying you prefer these guys to the way Pink Floyd 'play their instruments' or how Lennon 'sings while he plays guitar' or Entwistle's 'style to rock with his bass'. Finally, how do you even play drums 'HANDSOMELY'? - paak17

McFLY second!? Wow! Wasn't expecting that!

McFLY Are great band who focus on keeping up to date with new styles, yet stick with meaningful and emotional lyrics. Their new songs (to be officially released in the winter) are almost electric rock, yet the lyrics recall dougies (bassist player) hard time in rehab.

Seen these guys 9 times and just seem to get better each time, and I'm a 19 year old guy.. Not a 12 year old little brat. I love bands such as coldplay, bullet for my valentine, keane, oasis, muse and queen and I'm not going to attack them.. But nothing will compare to the 6 years I've had following McFLY.

Time doesn't = quality. Yeah, it's great to have been around for a while, but that doesn't automatically make your music better! 8 years and five albums is what McFly have accomplished by the first half of their twenties. Give these guys time, and their original music and lyrics are going to earn them JUST as much longevity as some of the other bands on this list. Don't wait a couple of years to give this band the credit it deserves, appreciate them now!

Busted is 3, isn't it, yeah ok mcfly should be number 1 - lizard302
