The Contenders: Page 8

141 Kodaline Kodaline Kodaline is an Irish rock band. Originally known as 21 Demands, in 2012 the band changed its name to Kodaline.

Went to their concert, pretty bad. Wasted 25$ to see an untalented boy band.

Amazing band, high hopes is the best song I've heard

142 Band of Skulls

There are about 15 bands on this list I'd love to vote for but when I realised Band Of Skulls wasn't on the list, I knew that I had to add them. Songs such as ' The Devil Takes Care Of His Own', 'Sweet Sour' and 'I Know What I am ' are easily as good as any Arctic Monkeys or Arcade Fire track I've heard

143 Ewert and The Two Dragons

They are just so amazing!

144 Tides of Man
145 The Head and the Heart

Awesome. Down in the Valley is great! God bless!

Oh common really? Common at the very least listen to Rivers and Roads at the very least! Better than Bon Iver I asure you

146 Daughter

Daughter is awesome.

Some of their faster, great melody amazing lyrics songs that I love "Amsterdam", "Touch", "Still", "Human"

Some of their slower but great melody, amazing lyrics, transport you feel song re "Smother", "Youth"

Daughter should be higher up. Great vocals, the songs transport, their use of backbeats, eerie sounding instruments, soaring chour's and many other aspects that I can't name on top of my head make their songs great. Their lyrics are amazing and enables you to get something out the song every time you listen to it.

English indie rock band with great singer and awesome lyrics!

Best band ever. My favorite one.

149 Deerhunter

They haven't released anything but incredible albums. Halcyon digest sticks out as a masterpiece

Amazing Band, Halcyon Digest being their best work

150 Peter Bjorn and John

Peter Bjorn & John bring a fresh new sound to the indie rock scene, and it's rather refreshing in my opinion.

My favorite song is up against the wall. I haven't heard a bad song from them. They are truly genius

Peter Bjorn and John make music like no other!
2nd chance and young folk is as unique as they could get!

153 Noah and the Whale

Their song, 5 years time, is beautiful. I fell in love with it the first time I listened to it. They have lots of great songs.

154 A Silent Film

You will leave a mark is one of my all time favourite songs.

This band is amazing and deserves a lot more attention.

155 The Verve The Verve The Verve were an English rock band formed in Wigan in 1990 by lead vocalist Richard Ashcroft, guitarist Nick McCabe, bass guitarist Simon Jones and drummer Peter Salisbury. Guitarist and keyboard player Simon Tong became a member at a later date.

They helped shape the indie rock scene of the 90's, and that decade wouldn't have been the same without their leading single, Bittersweet Symphony.
