187 The Jealous Sound
188 The Orphan, The Poet
189 Painted Skies
190 Dashboard Confessional
191 Beirut

Do they even have a bad song? I doubt it

I'm fairly disappointed at the lack of Beirut on an already pretty bad list, but to see absolutely no mention of them anywhere is heartbreaking. Nantes and Santa Fe are some of the most creative, unique songs in years. Their gorgeous blend of orchestral influence with the fantastic voice of Condon is simply mystifying.

192 The Crookes

Getting better as they go along. Awesome tunes

193 The View

Kyle Falconer is a world-class singer, they have 4 great albums. Massive hits like Same Jeans, Wasted Little DJs, Superstar Tradesman, Shock Horror and Grace, and their live shows are always electric.

197 Empire of the Sun

Walking On A Dream never gets old with it's psychedelic beats and catchy lyrics! Empire of the Sun are VERY underrated, and it's sad to see them at 191. VOTE FOR THEM!

If you don't like their song Alive then you are dead to me.

Love Sigurrós... It's so artistic. Even if you speak Icelandic you can't make out what they're saying but you don't need to because their music is beautiful.
