The Top Ten
What a band Brian Downey amazing
They are another amazing band to have come from Ireland - mneilan
Love u2(early work)
But thin Lizzy destroys it
This band is amazing! - Metal_Treasure1 Comment
2nd best band ever. Definitely best from Ireland. They have two of the best albums ever- The Joshua Tree & The Unforgettable Fire. Bono's a great vocalist, and them everyone else is underrated. Edge is one of the best guitarists, listen to Pride, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and Until The End Of The World, Clayton's one of the best bassist, listen to New Year's Day, Bullet The Blue Sky, and I Will Follow, and Larry's a great drummer, listen to Sunday Bloody Sunday and Bullet The Blue Sky. Such a talented, creative band.
This is easy to decide. U2 is simply the greatest Irish bands and also one of the greatest bands in general. Bono has an amazing voice The Edge is a very good guitarist.
Other good Irish music artists are:
2: The Cranberries: The Cranberries are like U2 with a female singer.
3: Snow Patrol
4: The Script
5: Sinead O Connor
I'll bet if you went to New York City and asked 100 people name an Irish band, 90% will say U2.
One Of The Best and the greatest bands in the world from Ireland 80s 90s 00s - mneilan5 Comments
My first concert was to one of theirs and I still haven't been to a better one 3 years later, the only one even close to that good was another one of theirs. They are wonderful artist and people. They act from the heart and are an inspiration to many. And even though they're quite famous, they still are close to their fans (The Script Family).
Absolutely underrated! Been to many of their gigs and the way they interact with the audience is unique! Not only brilliant musicians but also the most humble and kind persons I ever met in music business! Each of them an absolute gem!
These guys are truly amazing. They are the most genuine, down to earth and stay true to their roots. Seen the guys 3 times and waiting on my fourth gig in June. The interaction these guys have with their fans is just amazing!
I think The Script deserved to be 1. Their music is fabulous. But 3place isn't that bad. I love love their music, and all the emotion they put into it21 Comments
Love this band so good they have amazing songs should be higher up the list this band is better than most of the new band today
'it's too late to stop now' is an amazing album!
One of a kind!
One of the absolute greatest bands out of Ireland, with the animosity and fusion of classic Irish folk with modern (at the time) rock. Truly a great band not afraid to get into your face.
Voting because a bus home from a school tour anytime from September till February would not be complete without 'Fairy-tale of New York'
The grandfathers of celtic punk have to be on this list.
It's disrespectful to put The Script before Cranberries. It's mostly U2 #1 who sold 175 million records worldwide & The Cranberries #2 who sold more than 40 millions albums worldwide. Then the tastes, Dolores O'Riordan is at the top, named top female artist of all time by Billboard’s Alternative Songs, this says it all.
What! Only fifth?
This band was really good, they often got overlooked in the 90’s.
Those who knew the 90's, can not vote anything other than the cranberries...
Away from commercial music and the "bling-bling" band...
One of the finest musicians ever - his guitar can cry and speak. R.I.P. Gary. - Metal_Treasure
Again should be No1 alongside Lizzy. 🎸
The first Irish superstar... The rest followed but no one could play like Rory... Greatest guitarist ever
The only guitarist who can be compare to Hendrix. The person who paved the way for all the other Irish musicians to come. The man who inspired Brian May, Johnny Marr, Slash and the Edge. The man who got Clapton back into the blues. Rory is, whitout a doubt, the greatest Irish musician ever.
Amazing guitarist, musician, and person, my hero he deserves to be number 1 on every positive guitar list.
I think Rory should be number one on this list.Truly the best Irish guitarist EVER
Should be at number 1
Laugh out loud not even in top ten
Great person, singer and writer. Can't not be here.
She’s mad she became a nun for a month then quit
Best in the world from Ireland...❤
Definitely one of the best groups to come from Ireland. 14 number one hits. Well deserved.
Westlife is the best Irish boyband of all time...
Westlife is number 1, what's the list saying? Don't get it.
2. Brian McFadden
3. The Waterboys
Are you kidding me? Enya in 21?
She deserves top 5 al least.
She's too fantastic to be at 13. She's got to move to at least top 5. Well it's only a matter of time.
She transcends most other mere musicians, even the other Irish!
Enya is no.2 most success Irish artist after U2.2 Comments
No one put them on the list... Really?
The Corrs number 25? The angelic voice of Andrea Corr must be higher.
Kodaline is an amazing band! Their albums are so different from each other but still so good! In a Perfect World has melodious tunes while Coming Up for Air has heavier songs. Can’t wait for the new album! The singles show great promise!
The best Irish band playing right now! "In a perfect world" really is perfection!
Listen to all I want and you will become a fan.
Exact music that I was looking for long time!1 Comment
Bottle banks make a sweeter sound!
The Waterboys's leader Mike Scott is a massive song writing talent but he is not Irish. He is a Scottish.
They came in like and went away like a bullet! Still listening 20 yrs later!
I've lost my leg - Revrad
Absolutely top 5.
Brilliant band with great lyrics and music as a whole. Should definitely be in the top ten at least.
Best love song of all time is chasing cars because it is happy and sad
SNOW PATROL ARE LITERALLY GODS
# 34? I don't know what kind of music the world listens to but this guy clearly deserves a slot in the top 10.
This guy is a living legend... He is so talented, just amazing!
Dana's Easter album 'Love my Life' and 12" single 'For You, For Us' have money back guarantees, if not totally satisfied... in select stores now! Very select stores.
Loved by the French foreign legion
Pure and Raw blues. Beautiful stuff and an absolute hero
Such an under rated act. Breaks my heart he nver reached half of the success he deserved.
An amazing band... Are WAY too good to be this low in the list :(... Just go see them live, they are amazing!
Listen to "From Eden" or "Like Real People Do" or basically any of his other songs. He's brilliant.
One of the best rising stars of 2015. Glad to see he didn't turn out to be a one hit wonder.
An amazing artist with such a pure, beautiful voice, fabulous!
Unique voice1 Comment
An angelic voice... Raw talent at it's best, also I met him once and he is a true gentleman
Amazing artist! Deserves to be in the top 5 at least! So underrated!
Flogging Molly are not Irish, they are from Los Angeles. Just because they make celtic music, doesn't mean they are Irish.
Who ever said flogging Molly doesn't have an Irish singer is wrong he was born in Dublin republic of Ireland
The lead singer of flogging Molly is Irish American so it counts as Irish music and it is in my opinion the best Irish band
Flogging Molly is a band registered in America. So they aren't an Irish band. - Metal_Treasure2 Comments
Should be higher, Dearg Doom is a masterpiece - JazzPunk
Ride on is beautifull - Phossu
One of the most underrated live acts EVER in Ireland and the UK. Criminally written out of Irish Rock History!
Class band. Never mentioned in the 'heyday' early eighties retrospectives, oddly, when they were probably the biggest live rock draw in Ireland, and touring Europe and the US, but D.C. nien, The Blades and several others always 'trotted out' when, in fact, they meant little to anyone outside of the Baggott Inn!
Punk before punk existed
Irish traditional music at its best!
Travesty not in top 10
Honestly #1 best artist in my opinion, his voice is just amazing
Truly the greatest
Two fabulous young guys with lovely voices... Listening to them would make you feel proud to be Irish
Harry and Alfie are fantastic.
And I assumed Damien Hice would be on the list
Should be in the top 5
Too late for halaluya!
Baritone vocalist who originally performed with the Clancy Brothers. Heart-stirring traditional Irish songs at their very best when performed by Tommy over the decades.
Criminal these aren't top 10
