Best Bands with a Number in the Band Name

Typically, you know a new band is going to fade quickly when they have a number in the band name, especially if it is just tacked on there for no good reason. These bands have deviated from the norm and have made it big in spite of their band name.
The Top Ten
1 The Jackson 5 The Jackson 5, or Jackson Five, also known as The Jacksons in later years, is an American popular music group. Formed in 1963 under the name the Jackson Brothers, the founding members were Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, and Marlon.

This band is simply amazing, 5 brothers pulling up a very light, meaningful album... I honestly don't wanna single out anyone of them, everyone got some talent from jackie, tito, jermaine, marlon... however young Michael Jackson is undeniably a fascination, like never before... a little kid singing far beyond his age... that's the distinction between talented, gifted and innate genuine talent, what Michael Jackson has is innate and genius, like magic... It just send you smiling with amazement all the time, he's just too good.. and... so cute

Of course the Jackson 5 is #1! Greatest group ever, along with The Jacksons, with a number or without a number!

2 30 Seconds to Mars Thirty Seconds to Mars (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band currently consists of brothers Jared and Shannon Leto.

Of course, take a amazingly talented method actor and take his blood brother to keep beats that inspire Jared Letos vocals rhythm and grab a "3rd" all around guitarist, bassist, pianist, and concerto cello player...gee these guys will en-trance...watch out

3 U2 U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. U2's early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's musical pursuits, they have ...read more.

U2 doesn't deserve this place, he should be the on 1st place. Not too loud, not too boring, just PERFECT!. Jackson 5 were very good on their time but, come on, be realistic they had their time of awesomness and that time has passed

U2 Rock, they are of course the best band of all times with a number in it... Love those guys... One is awesome With or Without You is very very beautiful I Lve U2

Best band in the World... Ever

U2 should be number one!

4 Blink-182 Blink-182 are a Pop Punk band formed in 1992. Original lineup were Mark Hoppus (Bass Guitar, Vocals) ...read more.

Them and Green Day are the true kings of pop punk, and Blink's music is absolutely amazing, the epic tunes of I Miss You, Always, First Date, Stay Together For The Kids, The Rock Show, Adam's Song, All The Small Things, Dammit, Josie, and the best being What's My Age Again, with so many more.

Blink 182 revolutionized the pop-punk genre while inspiring most of the biggest pop-punk bands. They also had there own style that very few bands could replicate.

Love blink182. Always have done. Always will do. Even though they have split, they are still my favourite band!

Yeah tom! why?!
Although they broke up they are still my favorite band!
And they will always rock!

5 Avenged Sevenfold (A7X) Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.

When I saw this list, I immediately thought of 30 Seconds to Mars, Blink, U2, and A7X at the top. Seeing the JACKSON 5 there was just not fair. Of course they were good, but should they really count? THey certainly don't deserve their 52% of votes while A7X exists. Listen to Beast And The Harlot by A7X and you'll know what I mean.

I don't think The Jackson 5 should even count. I mean... What?

A7X is the best, it goes without saying. They're better than 30 Seconds to Mars, too.

A7X is much better than j5 or 30 Seconds to Mars. a7x has got it all. super drumming, cool guitar solos, good vocals. the kind of things that they do requires some real skill. not like some pop artist who becomes famous overnight (and has no skill at all)

I don't think I even need to say anything. Just listen to ONE of their songs and you'll see.

6 Maroon 5 Maroon 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.

They are good they have some bad songs but listen to the albums Songs About Jane and Overexposed.

7 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1992 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst. Their original name was Groundswell until they changed it to their current name in 1997. ...read more.

This band blows my MIND! They are in my top 10 favorite bands list. They Should be up higher because Adam Gontier has a awesome sexy voice that I will always remember!

Also funny thing Adam is so ugly that if he was half way good looking he would have 100 percent more material right?

They're my favourite band, and I disagree with the person that said Adam is ugly.

Seriously who cares the name of the line up... They kick the raddest asses they can call themselves Jimmy Carter

8 Nine Inch Nails Nine Inch Nails is an American industrial rock band and, founded in 1988 by Trent Reznor in Cleveland, Ohio.

Great music but doesn't count cause nine inch nails is a killing device used on Jesus Christs hands according to the Holy Bible, it's not technically a number just an adverb

9 B-52's

OBVIOUS CHOICE! Although I DO love Nine Inch Nails, I gotta go with the B-52's here 'cause their first album is one of the greatest new wave/punk albums ever. There's a moon in the sky, it's called the moon... lol! It was 6060-842! And I'm waiting for you! Dial the number to call, get no answer at all. Hello? I'm sorry. Hello?! I'm sorry. HELLO?! I'm sorry. lol. And there they saw a rock, but it wasn't a rock, it was a rock lobster!

10 OneRepublic OneRepublic is an American pop rock band. Formed in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2002 by lead singer Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on Myspace as an unsigned act.

3 Doors Down is the best current band, in my belief.

3 Doors Down is boo

13 311 311 is an American rock band from Omaha, Nebraska. The band was formed in 1988 by vocalist and guitarist Nick Hexum, lead guitarist Jim Watson, bassist Aaron "P-Nut" Wills.

It does not define them, much like people have trouble defining their sound. Plus it's the police code for indecent exposure.

What the what!? 311 is also a channel number for ABC Family.

14 Sum 41 Sum 41 is a Canadian rock band from Ajax, Ontario, Canada. Originally called Kaspir, the band was formed in 1996 and, as of 2015, consists of lead vocalist/rhythm guitarist Deryck Whibley, lead guitarist/backing vocalist Dave Baksh, co-lead guitarist/backing vocalist Tom Thacker, bassist/backing vocalist ...read more.

They might be idiots sometimes but the music they make is good. They have a lot of songs about being social outcasts, broken families and everything being okay in the end.
They're a pop-punk band, not a boyband :)
Listen to them if you need to chill or feel not-so-lonely.

Just because they have majority female fans doesn't mean they don't make good music
