Best European Bands
The Top Ten
This band represents a wide range of musical influences and genres and is in no way defined by one genre only. That's one of the most beautiful characteristics about HIM, they sing in all colors and still manage to deliver their sound beautifully with their signature romantic sense. Ville, the vocalist, is a lyrical genius and never fails to keep up with the modern dark poet lyrical style, whether drunk or sober. Together, with Mige, the funny bassist, Burton, the handsome keyboardist, Linde, the introverted cute guitarist and Gas, the adorable drummer, they put on so much effort and talent to produce pieces of arts that never die with time. Add to all that the fact that they are truly amazing with their fans, which is something that most artists miss nowadays. HIM are really underrated in a world full of posers who claim they know everything about music and call HIM 'wannabes', because HIM deliver artistic music in all its colors, which is their specialty, unlike limited bands ...more
I just love HIM and the music they put out. When someone is in love and you hear all the lyrics you have a scene Of Love for that person you are with. And you can relate to there music Much Love
Amazing band, amazing music, lyrics, and very warm and nice to their fans.
Go HIM, GO HIM! Best band ever!
HIM absolutely make the best music I've ever heard to... I love every single song they made in the same way: they are all beautiful, full of meaning and passion. Ville Valo has the most sensual male voice I've ever listened, and he is able to make you feel every single sensation he sings. HIM are definitely the best European band! :D (sorry for my bad English)
The Beatles should seriously be number 1. What's it doing at number 2?
The Beatles were, are and will be the best
You can find Beatles in every other bands, because they invented a new idea of music
The most legendary European band by far, no other European bands are better than this band.
pink floyd, black sabbath, the beatles, the who, led zeppelin are 5 knights of the round table
Influential, different, brave, heartbreaking, bold... There are some many ways to describe Pink Floyd. One of the best bands I know.
Pink Floyd has been & will always be my favorite band.
Beatles STONES QUEEN AHA
A really damn good Danish band! I love them, really recommended for those who like foreign language songs. Kind of a heavy rock sound mixed with techno :D
Who r they... Don't even know em..
Nephew is just awesome.
Here's a recipe for what their sound is like.
One cup of Depeche Mode
A half a teaspoon of Franz Ferdinand
Two cups of the Danish language
And that's the awesome recipe for this awesome band.
Come on! Half of these bands wouldn't exist without Led Zeppelin.
Not only the best band in Europe, but the best band in the world!
Um what the hell they NEED to be number 2 or 3 - CalebMusic
The epitome of excellence.
This is my favorite band ever, not just in Europe, but the entire world - and I'm American, by the way! Their music is impeccably produced, entirely by the band and their independent label. It's difficult to express how deeply their music has touched me over the years, since I first discovered them in 2009. They are all incredible musicians, but together they have created something you simply don't hear these days. Their sound incorporates elements from many different genres, but is still completely unique to anything I have ever heard before. Their music is memorable and will stay with you forever. It was a blessing to have discovered them, and I feel bad for those who will probably never have the opportunity to hear their music simply because they are not well known in the US. Hopefully we can change that though!
I hope they will get the success they deserve outside of Finland some day. It would be sweet to see them preform in person but they rarely come this side of the ocean.
The only word that describes them is, "MAGNIFICENT"! A great band, with a great lineup! Marko, with excellent and diverse vocals, Olli and Jaska, with a unique and impressive guitar work, Captain, with pleasing and rhythmic keyboards, Jani, with great bass work and jari, with awesome drum work! Overall, this band is simply excellent! All of their songs are unique, inspiring and creative! Songs like carnival of rust, cradled in love, late goodbye, lift, diamonds for tears and maybe tomorrow is a better day, have a special place in my heart! The songs are simply great! They deserve much more than the limelight they get! Its a knows fact, that they are the most underrated band is rock history! So let us all make an effort to make the people realise, that POTF is not just great, they are, THE BEST!
Simply Amazing! Their new album temple of thought is almost like a beautiful love story wrapped in sweet words enriched by Maarko's voice to create the best blend of music you will ever hear.
One of the most consistently excellent Scandinavian bands of late. They have at least five really good albums. They also have a good twenty to twenty five great stand-alone songs. - dinofs
In my opinion, queen is the greatest band of all time. As far as singing quality goes, they are unsurpassable. They can do opera, and they can do heavy metal. They are the best.
Queen is awesome! They are so underrated to me! Much better than one direction!
There the BEST band in the WORLD!
The best Metal band of them all. Power, melodic anthems, with crafted musicianship. Speed, intensity, and at other times, complex and thoughtful and even progressive. Great live act, great stage show, great albums, great songs. May never be beaten.
Iron Maiden are just the greatest European band of all time!
Few can match their power, awe and excellence on stage, and they are the best band when it comes to live performances.
The best band ever! Which other band has 10 studio masterpieces, 1 great album and 4 good albums? The beatles are cool, but Maiden are GODS!
Not just the best band in Europe, but one of the best in the world. No one can match the live performance given by this band.
I love their songs!
One of a kind...
My only regret going to their stadium tour is, that every other convert will pale in comparison.
Best live performance I've ever seen.
One of the most amazing bands
My favourite band for 10 years, and I still love them just as much. They put on the best concert I'v ever seen.
They truly rock! I voted for HIM, but I love them too!
Children Of Bodom is low because todays peoples are only listening to awful musics!
Best european band ever! - Disturbedpotato
Europe is one of the absolute best bands to ever come out of the 80s. They are the definitive Arena Rock band. The point is, when you put on The Final Countdown album, you feel like everything is gonna be awesome.
Europe is still rocking and have proven that they are one of the best bands from Europe.
This band has produced the best music I have ever heard.
Europe has got the awesome guitar riffs in songs like The Final Countdown combined with a great vocalist aka Joey Tempest.
Wow a little underrated if you tell me. Everyone needs to dig a little deeper other than wind of change or still loving you. Songs like we'll burn the sky and zoo are really good songs that aren't so well-known; however, I do want to say that Uli Roth should've stayed longer with them and they'd definitely be up there with the giants.
The nearly 5 decade of carrier, and the 80-100 000 000 sold record says everything! HIM is the MOST POPULAR OF ALL TIME? Ridiculous! If HIM is the first, then the Europe should be the second... The final countdown was a bigger hit, than any song from HIM. To be honest I know a quiet few songs from HIM, but I remember only one hit... Maybe join me in death...
With "winds of change", the band's song should rate #1 of all the times. Thank you.
Best Band ever- Wind of Change
Hello, where is muse, u know the band that redefined bass and guitar, basically the 2nd biggest european band ever -
Deserves to be on the top of list, they are best, especially matt, his vocals are just awesome!
Great band, awesome live deserved winners in my eyes
Their song is so cool! Our time is running out~ and many more...!
Hardcore Nightwish fan. I start listen them when I was 8. My dad bought their album and me and my dad are still NIghtwish fans - Disturbedpotato
Best songs in the symphonic metal history! Listen this music of you don't know what this is!
Best band in like EVER!
Them songs are awesome!
This band was amazingly popular in the 70s, and has stood the test of time very well. The broadway play, Mamma Mia! Has had huge success, as well as their greatest hits album, ABBA GOLD. In fact, ABBA GOLD has become the second best selling album in the UK, more popular there than even The Beatles. If this list is ranking popularity in Europe and not the US, than ABBA should very well be high up on it. They were not very big in the US, because they were focused primarily on countries in Europe and even Australia. ABBA is, in my opinion, the best of European music.
They are my favourite music group ever! Their songs are well made and combination of the Agnetha and Frida's voice is just amazing! They should be in the top 10! - ivylee
ABBA are really good. Definitely the best group from outside of the UK. There music is so catchy and melodic. Certainly on a par with the Beatles. Brilliant!
I went out with two Swedish chicks and I couldn't remember their names so I just called them ABBA - Acropolis Now. - ParasN2000
ARCTIC MONKEYS ARE THE BEST BAND EVER
Cold play is the best decently in my opinion
They are so awesome ya
Overrated - Disturbedpotato
Best power metal band
They really are the best. Love basically every one of there songs. THEY SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!
Best band ever! should be number 1 the piano is unreal!
32? What is Black Sabbath doing behind Progidy and coldplay - Disturbedpotato
"Best heavy metal band from Roumania"
I can't believe definitely leppard are not in this list.. what! You guys are gone mad... I my opinioun definitely leppard should be in top three... I hope you understand the rock music clearly...
Liam voice is awesome
I love Tokio Hotel! The music is good and the guys are cute.
Just listen Seal The Deal... - Disturbedpotato
Depeche Mode is on 50th place?
Sail Away is a masterpiece
Probably the best kept secret in the USA when it comes to great rock bands. What a shame too.
I saw them back up Aerosmith in the seventies and they put on a great show.
The drummer lept over his kit during Radar Love, which was for a teen, pretty spectacular but more,n that these guys were prog musicians at one point and stood their ground with some great albums in the early seventies. They were musically diversified thru the course of there career, so far. I believe they are one of the three longest running rock acts on the planet.
I love this band and radar love one of the best songs ever
This is a great band with big hits
The Duo is perfect! Great music!
The best band in the world
Best pop-rock band ever! Kicking live!
Really one of the best bands of all times, come on The Who it's awesome
One of the greatest bands ever why it's 54th? - Disturbedpotato
:0 this is obviously one of the greatest bands in the world. Obviously can't be nr.70
If you have not listened to their albums, you are missing one of the best bands of all time. Sharon is a truly gifted singer and on a par with the very best in any genre. The more you listen, the more you want! by the way - they are a symphonic ROCK band living at the intersection of cinematic symphony, rock and metal.
This band is too much underrated. The combination of heavenly music and heavenly voice of Sharon den Adel can't be found anywhere else!
76?! Should be way up there!
One of best musicians of the Genre. The melodious voice of Sharon Den Adel is just awesome. Gives goosebumps. It has to be in the top 10. The music of WT is heavenly
Cry for the moon and burn trough a cinder, listen to them
Cry for the moon is best song!
