Top 10 Best English Bands

The Top Ten

1 Queen Queen Queen are an English rock band formed in 1970. Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury ...read more.

Queen is number one on my list. They created amazing songs that people will remember for a long time, I don't think they will ever be missed. Freddie had a beautiful four octave voice, and was a one of the best front men that ever lived. Roger has great drumming skills, and a nice high voice. Brian's guitar skills will never match anybody else's. John was one of the quiet, and most relaxed bass players I've ever seen. Their concerts will never bore you, Freddie always kept the crowd going along with him, with his amazing, strong voice, and his strutting on stage. He would make jokes sometimes laugh out loud. Anyway Queen is truly an amazing band! They truly 'took my breath away'.

Innovative, versatile, unique. Four highly proficient, gifted, skilled musicians and songwriters who worked wonders in the studio and dropped jaws as one of the best live acts ever. In other words, the guys COULD play. Their musical delivery on stage frequently outdid their already astonishing studio performance, and that's something that can't be said of many bands. Never limiting themselves to reproduce the studio versions on stage, they totally recreated them for the live audience, putting in evidence their acute sense of show and entertainment, and respect for the audience. Loyal to themselves and to their legions of equally loyal fans. A clash of four highly egocentric, stubborn, arrogant musicians who were however intelligent enough to understand that no matter how good they invidually felt (and were! ), they would always be better as Queen.

The greatness of Queen goes beyond human understanding. The unrepeatable talent of freddie mercury, a vocalist created in heaven who came to earth to make us understand that not only humans can inhabit this planet added to a band with a unique and unrepeatable talent, they created rock anthems that will last past the next century. It is a clear example to understand that Queen is a superior band for a talent that we will never see again.

There's certainly something incredible when you put three incredible musicians together. But when you add the greatest vocalist ever (indisputable), their band becomes something of a divine beauty. An unmatched perfection, achieved flawlessly. People are born knowing their songs.

2 The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.

I have to agree the Beatles are the most successful english band of all time I love some of their songs and they are from Liverpool which in my opinion is the best part of the country they are also probably the most iconic group of english people and to top this list so long after they was in their prime is remarkable

It kills me when people trash them. I was born in the wrong time period.

The Beatles changed the music industry forever. One direction, however, who think they are 'better' will never have such a legacy. Teens today wear The Beatles t-shirts, can you really imagine teens wearing one direction t-shirts in 50 years? Nope, I didn't think so.

No one can really compare to the changes they made in the very short span of time. Their contribution in music s such that until tofay, their influene more than ever.

They are an awesome band with meaningful songs

They have composed some of the most sentimental songs I have ever heard. they should be in top three.

They should be N.1! They are the best

Its songs are mind-blowing,it's the number 1

The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

If you really don't like one direction just don't hear to their music. But please don't insult them by writing rubbish comments cause their are many one direction fans around the world who really like them. Seriously you guys are writing like they are your enemy. I r

What an insult to music. all they do is make teenage girls feel beautiful and take advantage of their insecurities. Sorry 1D fans, but maybe you should try listening to actual music.

It's not One Direction themselves that make these girls feel beautiful either - it's all the Swedes and Americans who write and produce many of the songs for them. - Entranced98

Peoples opinions on this band seem to be based on 2011/2 one direction-5 teenage boys who have no idea about the music industry and care more about their hair than their records and of course their fans who everyone still seems to think are 12 years old? We age too people. Maybe if you updated yourself and listened to their more recent albums and took a look at how much they do for people and mean to people you would see how genuine these boys are and how much they care about what they are producing and about their fans. They create great music which fair enough may not be to your taste but isn't all simply 'girly pop music'. So please stop insulting them and their fans for no reason.

This is just so rude

It's a good band. I like to listen the songs of this band.

The fact that One Direction is ahead of The Rolling Stones makes me want to puke

Simply the best! What a magic band! Best combination ever: powerful guitars, magic bass and drums, and... Mick Jagger!

The greatest band in the world.

WHY IN THE ACTUAL HELL IS ONE DIRECTION AND A CRAPPY BOY BAND NO-ONE HAS EVER HEARD OF OR LIKES ABOVE Led Zeppelin, QUEEN, Pink Floyd IRON MAIDEN AND ROLLING STONES!?! Yes I was actually screaming that at my computer because it is so stupid to see morons who have never heard of a guitar or talent won't allow talent within five mili-metres (Small distance, for those idiot who don't know music) of their bubble of idiocy, I love Led Zeppelin because they had talent, so much talent, Jimmy page, Robert plant, John paul jones, and of course the beast John bonham are all amazing at what they do, please let them get above those pretty boy hacks.

Better than Beatles! Why? Guitar solos are excellent, Drum beats too... Bass is very good in most songs, and Plant's voice is actually 10/10

The Gods of Rock music. Excellent Guitar and music. Robert Plant is incredible. Stairway to Heaven is the ultimate rock song ever. But then who can forget Kashmir?

It can be argued that Zeppelin is still influencing more bands today than even The Beatles.

7 Oasis Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

BY far the absolute best band in the world due to the amazing songwriting of N Gallagher and the beautiful voice of L Gallagher. The best and most talented band in the history of the world.

The reason they are one of the greatest british bands ever is because they dominated the 90s with 2 of the greatest albums ever made. Morning Glory and definitely maybe defined the decade and even if they didn't really break america that wasnt due to them not being a great band, it was mostly because whenever they went on tour there they more or less broke up. Even their worse albums are still good, just can't live up to their first two, they also have incredible b sides

The best band in the world

Oasis or Queen are definitely 1 and 2 for the best. The others are good but these two have changed music itself

Rock gods like none other, Keith is the best drummer, John is the best bassist, Roger is a fantastic singer and Pete is the greatest songwriter, plus a fantastic guitarist.

Their sound endures more than anyone else and some of the songs are the most exciting pieces of music ever written.

This band is really incredible. Instead of 1D put the who in top ten... -_-

I used to not care about these guys. Then I heard Live at Leeds... needless to say, my mind was blown to bits. THE best rhythm section of any band ever!

9 Take That Take That Take That are an English pop group from Manchester, formed in 1989. The group currently consists of Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, and Mark Owen.

Every time the boys tour I think that was the best, then they something else that tops that, loved their music and them for 25 years, and will continue to love them for the next 25, there is a take that song for every moment of my life, meeting Mark Owen was the best day, the boys are so lovely to every one of their fans, and they are so grateful for every opportunity. Great music, great concerts great British band, need I say any more,?

They just deserve to win, the amount of effort they put into their fans in amazing I had waited 5.5 hours to meet Gary and Mark and as they were leaving Mark said "Gaz this poor girls been here ages" and they spent at least ten minutes with me just chatting and asking about life.

Their concerts have always been amazing! Never once fail to wow the audiences, if you've never been to their show, try to come, I'll guarantee, even if you don't fancy them, they'll entertain you fully and you'll go back home with a huge smile on your face! And yes, I agree how much they respect their fans, no matter how tired they are, they always put a big effort to make us all happy, they always try to take as many pic together as possible. Do you know how much that means for the fans? Fans will remember that 2-3 mins moment for a lifetime!

Only third. These are way better than One direction

go listen to dark side, the wall, and meddle. you'll see why pink floyd pwns and deserves to be #1. there will probably never gonna be a better band than them. - russian

Yo what the hell is going on here? One Direction is better than Pink Floyd? Go back to junior high or listen to Floyd ASAP! Incredibly powerful lyrics and concepts, some of the most impressive instrumentalists in music history, and the never-ending influence on music they have. #9 is disgraceful for them. They are considered by some to be even better than the Beatles. Idiots. All of you. - DoctorDigiorno

I'm with the Floyd. One Direction may one day be classed as a great band, but to be truly great you have to stand the test of time

11 Duran Duran Duran Duran Duran Duran are an English new wave/synthpop band formed in Birmingham in 1978. They were a successful band of the 1980s and a leading band in the MTV-driven "Second British Invasion" of the US.

They are so cool and their music is amazing. I'm a teenager and would rather listen to them any day compared to the crappiness of 1D.

Pop-rock at its best

So creative, so clever in their music,what an inspiration to others in the music industry..just awesome never get tired of listening to their songs!

Duran Duran changed the face of music in the 80s and took the UK, America, the whole world by storm. Every song is a classic. Not just Duran Duran, but Spandau, Coldplay, etc are all better than One Direction. Fact! DD beats 1D!

12 The Smiths The Smiths The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1982. The band consisted of vocalist Morrissey, guitarist Johnny Marr, bassist Andy Rourke and drummer Mike Joyce.

What is actually wrong with this list?! Take That 2nd? Oasis 8th? The Smiths 11th? Who puts One Direction and Take That above The Smiths and Oasis?! The Smiths is my favourite English band and you cannot beat Morrissey's lyrical genius and Marr's extraordinary musical talent, listen to How Soon Is Now or There Is A Light That Never Goes Out or I Know It's Over before you dare press one direction.

Greatest band of all time... let alone in England. The Smiths created some of the most unique, inspiring, influential, emotional and interesting music of all time. There will never ever again be anything like Morrissey's quintessentially English, yearning voice or Johnny Marr's symphony of glittery, jangly guitars. The Smiths are/will always be number 1 in my book.

This list is whack the smiths were amazing no boy band should be in the top 20

Greatest band ever, mozzy voice its amazing

15 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Truly the band with the most variations in sound. Don't believe me? Listen to Kid A and The Bends. Note the difference. - U2FAN101

I do love Radiohead, but please do your homework before posting, the Beatles revolutionized the recording methods, just listen to Sgt. Pepper's and compare it to the music of the 60's. They changed music.

Radiohead deserves to be in the top 5 though.

Radiohead bellow One Direction (not the worst band ever, but is still kind of trash pop crap) and Linkin Park (A band that isn't Brittish, they're God damn American). This list is crap Radiohead should be at least two spots higher, at least. - Quart

Common I love this band is amazing - Santi12

Keane has some of the best lyrics and catchy tunes. While some bands provide me with just a few songs to listen to, there are easily ten or more that I can think of for Keane.

Keane is incredible. Deep lyrics and magical voices.

By far the best. If you just compare it to, let's say Coldplay,. They are so much better...

Their singer Bruce Dickinson is a polymath. A pilot, fenceman, Radio DJ and various other things he is amazing at. Steve Harris plays the bass with his fingers, and not may people can do that. Their drummer Nicko Mcbrain is one of the best drummers on this planet. Their guitarists Adrian, Dave and Janick are amazing. Every song the band has put out on all of their 15 albums are amazing. And best of all, they're British!

Bruce Dickinson is the most talented vocalist of all time in my opinion and the guitar is incredible, they have 6 DVD's made about them 5 of which were chart topping, and to top it off they even have their own beer, they cannot be beat by 5 boys with voice correction and 1d

31 The Kinks The Kinks The Kinks are an English rock band formed in Muswell Hill, North London, in 1964 by brothers Ray and Dave Davies. They are regarded as one of the most important and influential rock bands of the 1960s.

One of the best singer/songwriters, one of the best guitarists, add together and you get the hugely talented Davies brothers. Like with Oasis' Gallagher brothers having one of the best singers and one of the best songwriter/guitarists, the Kinks are a genius band that must be in the top 10. Kick out one direction and Linkin park, and put the kinks and the who there

Beatles and Pink Floyd are hard to go past. Only the Kinks can do that. So many great songs - their albums are filled with hidden gems that people have never heard. Try songs like Some Mother's Son, Death of A clown, Celluloid Heroes, David Watts, Do you Remember Walter, Missing Person, Dead End Street, Tin Soldier Man and of course Waterloo Sunset.

The Kinks have written more great songs than any other English band: end of argument.

The Beatles, Stones, Who, Bowie and more all learned and nicked from the Kinks.
