Keane are simply the BEST british band... Fact! Their music is incredible, their lyrics are amazing thanks to the very talented Mr Rice-Oxley and Tom's voice, well what can I say. He has the purest and the most beautiful voice ever. They so deserve to be the best British band
It's hard to find a band that puts more emotion into their songs as Keane. I honestly don't understand why they are so disliked. If you give a shot at their songs, not just the singles, I think you'll be surprised.
Keane was AND IS my all-time-favorite band! With almost every song I can match the feeling and emotion of Keane with my own even. Though I have never met them, Keane has been my favorite band for years now. It's very easy to connect with them, their music style is very captivating, and the lyrics have very deep meaning, which makes the replay button feel just as important as the pause/play button.
Keane are just superb, their songs are brilliantly written and Tom Chaplin voice is so superior to many other bands frontmen. The more you listen to their songs the more you realise how amazing they are.V 26 Comments
There is so much meaning to their songs! Their songs are about our world issues today with and indie-like feel. I love them to death.
Half British half Irish band, however Snow Patrpol are elegible here due to the half British origins.V 2 Comments
Torn between Sabbath and Zeppelin. Two of the most influential bands of all time! 1&2
Black Sabbath below one direction? This site is hilarious.
Only lil' Wayne is better than black sabbath!
HOW IS THIS BAND NOT ON THE TOP OF THIS LIST? It is the best band EVER. You have to listen to them! They are surreal.
This band developes beautiful harmonies through the song, florence sings so open hearted and strong.
When I meet Florence Welch or Isabella Summers or Chris Hayden or anyone else my life will have meaning
FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE IS THE BESTV 5 Comments
Not many bands like the manics. Quite possibly the best remaining British band and don't get enough credit for consistently making amazing songs and albums. Also a fantastic live band
The only band that I've listened to from which I rate every single song. Every single song that this band produces is gold. Other bands, of the like of Coldplay, are class but aren't consistent like the Script. Lyrics really meaningful and brilliant music.
How can anyone forget The Script! They are the best pop music band on this planet right now in my opinion...! Anyone who has listened to a few songs of the script will surely vote for 'em!
What a band the best sound for a long time the words and music go together like sausage and mash tasty as hell easy to digest and leaves you wanting more awesome keep going
The script is the best band in the planet how can anyone forget their songs nothing, breakeven, hall of fame, great vocal by danny oh he is my favourite singer in the worldV 1 Comment
You are the worst listeners of all! The band is very deserving in the top 5.
What the heck is blur doing at #29? Arguably among the best songwriting and live performers in the 90s. They basically defined British identity! Easily top 10 for me. alongside muse, radiohead arctic monkeys and kasabian
I love The Wanted! Their music is great and their personalities are hilarious. Their music gets you in the mood for partying, cleaning, working out, just anything for me And they have some pretty sad/emotional songs as well And they have their mature moments
The Wanted's is just so awesome! All the songs have amazing catchy lines that will never stop you from listening to them. They seem like another bunch of normal 20 to 24 year olds but inside, they're like 4 to 6 yeear olds. They're like a 6 year old child trapped in a 20 to 25 year old's body.
The Wanted are absolutely brilliant! Funny, handsome, cool, excellent music-makers! Their music is fun to listen to, they create sad and party songs both. Very enjoyable.
I love The Wanted since I was 12. They are better than Muse, why did they got the 25th place?. Their songs are better than Muse too. Besides, they also have a cute face like a baby even though they are 20-25 years old now. If you think I'M right, vote The Wanted. Sorry for my English *. *V 1 Comment
Love the boys unique sound and down to earth attitude.V 1 Comment
I'd say these guys are the most under appreciated band of the 21st century. They're fantastic. This band should be much higher.
I found Bastille after Pompeii played on the radio. I listened to all of their other songs and fell in love. Their music is remarkable and the lyrics are very meaningful. They are an amazing band and I think that everyone needs to listen to at least one of their songs other than Pompeii.
Oh my gosh. I love Bastille. I listened to Pompeii and thought it was incredible. So I listened to their whole album, Bad Blood, and thought it was amazing. All the songs are so meaningful. My favorites are Bad Blood, Laughter Lines, and Laura Palmer.
Bastille is just amazing. Literally all their songs are awesome and they also sound great live, which cannot be said about many singers/bands. I started to listen to them probably 4 months ago and instantly fell in love with them. Dan's voice is just incredible.
Bastille is truly my favorite band, all of their songs are so deep and really help you clear your mind, plus they sound as good live as they do on recordingV 3 Comments
This band is great on stage. They might not have as much energy as like, Muse, but Roger Waters loves engaging with the audience and you can tell they love what they do. Plus they're great stage show, like the wall, they buildt an actual wall on stage and had a big pig floating around in the audience.
Love this band, I must have made a wrong turn to be on a website that has some of these sorry groups way ahead of groups with actual talent
First band ever using stereo and developed music to new extends in a time there was as little as Rolling Stones and Abba
BP has reached no.9 before any comments are left here. That means, if necessary attention is paid to this genius band, this chart will be better.V 1 Comment
I love Muse, Coldplay, Oasis, Arctic Monkeys... but I also love Biffy and they deserve to be alongside those bands. They cut to the crap, producing proper heartfelt rock music. I saw them last year at Isle of Wight, headlining alongside two more of my favourite bands, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings of Leon, and they stole the show. They're even better live than recorded. Emotion and talent. Biffy are genius and it's sad they're this low down. Mon the Biff!
If you haven't already heard this band go on youtube and listen to every one of their songs, one of the only modern bands which display unique musical skill along with simon neils lyrical genius. This band changed my life and influences me
One of the greatest bands alive today, and their songs have deep meaning, and are written for a purpose, the most underrated band out, why isn't this at number 1?! The boys deserve more recognition
It's a little scary how low down the list this band is...V 2 Comments
Number 1 singer-songwriters and number 1 three part harmony of all time (Sir. George Martin, Beatles producer). The brothers Gibb are simply UNIVERSALLY UNIQUE and reign SUPREME in all music categories.It is said that if Mozart was alive today he would listen to Bee Gees on his phone! Loved them since 1967 and always will!
One of our best singer/song writer's in the world, never, ever to be beaten by anyone, EVER!
The best Hard Rock Band ever
