61 Enter Shikari

Such an underrated band, I mean, I like a lot of the bands in the top 10 list, but I still think Enter Shikari should be 1. Simply amazing.

Unique and awesome live. Great lyrics.

Great Band with a fantastic live-act.

Unprecedented band!

64 The Blackout

The Blackout are what I call rock. They have so much energy and they love to party. Just perfect

65 Architects Architects Architects is a British Metalcore band formed in 2004 in Brighton, East Sussex. Consisting of five band members, Architects' discography consists of seven studio albums and one split EP.
66 Massive Attack Massive Attack Massive Attack are an electronic music duo from Bristol, England, who use distorted, psychedelic, dynamic atmospheres as a definitive style of their music. They are noted as one of the most influential acts in electronic music to date, whose musical style was claimed to be far ahead of its time, and more.

Wonderful music from another world which talks about the problems in our world!

67 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.

68 Wolf Alice

Pretty new, but still amazing

69 The Hoosiers

Great band live, pretty current and well known. Although they don't have lists of top singles, all their music is up beat and they have a great front man in Irwin sparkes

If we're judging this list based purely on a band that came around in the 21st century, surely The Hoosiers are more legitamite than Take That, which were 20th century.

70 The Zutons
71 Boyzone
72 We Are the Ocean

They are my favourite band and I hear a lot of bands. Their older albums are more post-hardcore and they are really good, their newer stuff goes more into the country direction but is definitely as good as the older stuff because they are extremely talented.

73 Foals

Every Foals song is a masterpiece


74 Years & Years

Definitely need to be higher. Been a fan since buying their album.

75 The Vamps The Vamps The Vamps are a British pop rock band consisting of Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans.

The amount of work these four boys put into the band is amazing. Not only do they write and produce their own songs and songs for other artists, they also record vlogs and covers to keep fans entertained. They will be embarking on their third world tour this year which is a huge achievement being so young. Furthermore they have started their own record company to help up and coming artists make their way in the music industry which is lovely to see.

Their all songs are wonderful and they have perfect pitch. I love you so much vamps

76 Deaf Havana
77 Right Said Fred

Best pop rock band since the Beatles.

78 The Overtones
79 Basement

They're one of the few Brittish bands representing the emo-revival of there 2010's, also the most popular and the best.
