50 The KLF

The KLF are the most underrated group in the history of the universe; it's like nobody's heard of them but me! Come on people, "The White Room" is the most talented, finished and perfect album of all time! Nobody knows that, for crying out loud!

51 New Order New Order New Order are an English rock band formed in 1980, currently comprising Bernard Sumner, Stephen Morris, Gillian Gilbert, Phil Cunningham and Tom Chapman.

I ADORE New Order! A lot of people think, '"Blue Monday", yeah, a good song. ' Then they move on. I think they deserve more recognition, particularly for other songs such as "Temptation" and "Crystal", which fewer people know about. They're great!

Prefer joy division but still a great band...
