Best British Rock Bandsroflcash4
The Top Ten
Listen. I don't understand how anyone can listen to Elanore Rigby, Paint it Black or Black Dog and not completely understand why Beatles, Stones and Zeppelin are now and always will be the top three Greatest British Bands Ever. PERIOD. End Topic.
That said, four through ten are seriously up for debate but number 4 is Queen. 'enough Said. The rest of you can fight over 5...
Why is Zeppelin #1? The Beatles had way more singles and all time better hits!
No love for The Beatles, they are never put at the top of these lists but they should undoubtedly be at the top.
1. The Beatles
2. Led Zeppelin
3. The Rolling Stones
4. The Clash
5. The Who
6. Pink Floyd
7. Black Sabbath
8. The Kinks
America has the best solo artists, Britain has the best bands
I put every band on this list in a playlist EXCEPT Judas Priest and Iron Maiden... My favorite playlist EVER!
My brother hates led zeppelin, but I love Them! I'm a big led zeppelin fan, and wish my brother would be as well!
Amazing where the hell would I be with out these beautifully brilliant people
Stairway to Heaven (of course), Rock n' Roll, Kashmir - all brilliant! Listen to Led Zeppelin! Any one who says they are terrible are 102% Justin Bieber fans... - HollyRoloV 3 Comments
Powerhouse band of four ingenious writers with different styles, songs covering every topic from time difference when travelling at near light speed to heart breaking songs about their lead singer's death, Queen is one of the most influential and long-lasting rock bands in history.
The greatest live band of all time, no question about it!
QUEEN IS BETTER THAN EVERY SINGLE BAND! This band INSPIRED other British bands... People don't know music.
LONG LIVE QUEEN!
Ri.P Freddie Mercury the best singer ever - DisturbedpotatoV 5 Comments
Should be number 1 or 2 after the Beatles. Totally original, one of a kind, & avant garde. They paved the way for everything that's followed without ever blatantly stealing from others like Zeppelin, who in my opinion shouldn't even be in the top 10!
Not my favourite but still amazing! They are unique and their guitar solos are amazing! - HollyRolo
The absolute best; better than the Beatles, no matter what any Beatles fan or Beatle says. They are unbeatable.
Pink floyd and the beatlesV 2 Comments
The Who are way underrated and deserve much more respect. Anyone who hasn't listened to Quadrophenia cannot call themselves a music fan.
Best with led zeppelin and rolling stones and iron maiden - shatti
Home to some of the greatest guitar riffs!
Great! Best live band ever in my opinion
PLEASE! All you Stones haters who say they're old and dried up, Please for your fathers' sake, read early Stephen King and listen to young Stones. Master King will teach you what it means to be a Stones fan.V 1 Comment
The best heavy metal band ever
I think that Muse is the best band in the 21st Century. Matt is one of the best guitarists and especially one of the best singers in rock history, no doubt. Chris is one of the best bassists and what can I say about Dom, along with John Bonham they dominate the world of music... They are the Best!
I love Muse, but I do like a lot of the other bands on this list. Muse are my number 1 band - HollyRolo
I couldn't believe that. Muse is oone of the best bands, their style are amazing and spectacular, they have very good songs, Time is Running Out, Starlight, Hysteria, Black Star, United States of Eurasia etc...
Absoluely adore this band. Some incredible songs and unrivalled at live performance.V 5 Comments
I overrated the beatles and stones because I knew there would be a riot in England if I didn't have them in the top 5. I came later so in my opinion Motorhead, Judas Priest, Saxon, and especially Iron Maiden are all way better than the Beatles, Stones, Led Zep, and Queen. I couldn't cheat Iron Maiden outta the number one spot, they've earned it. - roflcash4
Hallowed be thy name
Listen to it and youll understand why it deserves top spot
Nah not maiden at 5
Listen to Paranoid Android, Creep, Karma Police, The Bends, Bones etc etc etc and you'll understand why Radiohead need to be higher in this list! - HollyRolo
I'd give my left ball to write something as good as Okay Computer!
Radiohead's probably the only perfect band in existence. They make phenomenal music that is timeless.
Ok computer one of the best album of all time. in rainbows is the first album to have an anything you can pay of paymentV 4 Comments
They went for there debut album in 94 to playing 2 nights to 150,000 people at Knebworth 2 years later, where about 2.6 million people applied for tickets. In terms of which british band is actually the best, it's obviously The Beatles. But Oasis are my favourite band
One of the most underrated bands in history, all their songs are meaningful for all kind of people
Mad fer it...from Nepal
Simply... LEGENDV 1 Comment
The best ever I LOVE IT
They are truly amazing.They are so creative with Jonny's guitar solos, Chris plays piano so well, Guy is amazingly awesome at bass, and I like how Will sings a lot. Their album Mylo Xyloto is just WAY OVER THE TOP AWESOME!
After Oasis, they are probably the best band of the last 15 years
LOVED their song "Clocks" since I was young.V 2 Comments
Is there any thing more complimentary than stummer's vocals and jones's riffs? They are more than just a punk band and tried things that no other band had ever done before. I grew up with this band and I they wont get old
Best punk band ever, and where are the Pistols?
Innovation between each records, good double guitar, excellent vocalist, big influence other for metal bands.
Dude psychedelic is all I should have to say to get this band about Coldplay. Way better.
