Top 10 Best Music Groups

Here's a list of the ten best music groups of all time, according to my own opinion. By 'music group' I mean a musical group, containing at least two members. I'll try to explain as best as I can why I chose a group on that position. Enjoy, I hope you like it.

The Top Ten

1 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.

HOW IS THAT HORRIBLE BAND BIG TIME RUSH #1? Apparently the world has forgotten what a big impact this band has made. They had stunning preformances and wonderful music! That crappy band big time rush does not have any of these things in it. This is why The Beatles are truly the best band of all time, in the whole universe!

It's real sad to see OD AND BTR so high up, when this band broke so many barriers and did so many things in the music world, not to mention the great music they gave us. People, what matters is the music and quality and accomplishments of the band. Good looks, don't matter that much. Folks be smart and vote for music and not looks. When it comes to that The Beatles are infinity times better than some boy bands that will fade in some years and will barely be remembered in the future. - zam67

The Beatles transcended mere music. The world looked to them eagerly for other cultural directions: clothing styles, hair styles, THEY MADE THE FIRST MUSIC VIDEO EVER - for Strawberry Fields Forever - for spiritual and literary guidance. For visual arts guidance. For political guidance; for generational guidance.
They practically re-created the entirety of Western culture.

They deserve the top spot

2 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

The best group ever in my life.. You four are the heroes of my life keep singing like this only.. Love you..

They don't know how to dance, but they know to say anything by songs.

They are the best of this generation. People gotta accept that if their music really was that crappy as haters think, they wouldn't get sales records over and over again...

One of the best band over the world.

3 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.

What the hell? One Direction better than Queen? Freddie Mercury sung concerts on his deathbed of AIDs. They should be second, not that One Direction crap.

Queen had the best vocalist ever, most powerful touching voice "one direction" ahead of queen this is ridiculous, I have never even heard of that one direction crap

Only the Beatles are better than queen. One direction and big time rush are bull.

One Direction is better than Queen? It's a shame. - bzsuzsi0128

4 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition ...read more.

WHY IS ONE DIRECTION NUMBER ONE?!? - Gruunge

Lol because this list was made by someone biased and reviewed by retards with similar mindsets - InsertCleverName

5 Pink Floyd Pink Floyd Pink Floyd were an English progressive rock band formed in London. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitarist), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters (Vocals and Bass), ...read more.

This is without a doubt, the most painful, frustrating, and dumb list I have EVER seen in my life. I like how The Beatles are at the top. But One Direction, Big Time Rush, Backstreet Boys, ABBA, and -should be nowhere near here! I don't even think Linkin Park is worthy of the top 200 bands ever. It is absolutely sickening to see people voting for boy bands that will be forgotten in 10 years over musical geniuses such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rush, Rolling Stones, Queen, or Black Sabbath. I could go on all day about how imbecile the people that vote for the boy bands are. IF YOU ARE READING THIS, AND YOU PLACED YOUR VOTE FOR 'ONE DIRECTION' BTR' BACKSTREET BOYS' THE WANTED SUPER JUNIOR, OR LMFAO, PLEASE DO US ALL A FAVOR AND GET OFF THE INTERNET AND LISTEN TO SOME REAL MUSIC. - ryanrimmel

Can someone explain why one direction is above Pink Floyd and Queen? Did everyone forget about the Dark Side of The Moon? And The 8 minute long masterpiece "Echoes"? David Gilmore's guitar solos? This has to be a joke...

Greatest British band ever period. RIP Syd Barrett

6 Rush

How is big time rush above this?

7 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture ...read more.

What! You gotta be kidding... Linkin Park ON 7TH! This band deserves to be on the top... It's the best rock band the world has seen or will ever see... Their music is awesome, and their lyrics are always so realistic and wonderful!

This must be the best group EVER

Far better than modern kids with blonde-bimbo girly fans of one direction

A7x is much better

Some ...read more.

I love how all these fangirls and losers have placed one direction over Green Day, Linkin Park and Metallica. This list was obviously created by someone who doesn't know the A's and B's of music. Someone should seriously take this down.

Best music group in the world..!

I Love These Band Song

Good indeed

9 Little Mix Little Mix Little Mix are a British girl group formed in 2011, consisting of members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson.

Little Mix is not only the first girl group to win the X-Factor, but the first GROUP. This task hadn't been accomplished in the show's 8 year run time until Little Mix achieved it in 2011. In a time where many artists use auto tune and lip-synch, Little Mix stays natural and sing every note perfectly, whether or not they are in the studio or singing live. Jade, Jesy, Leigh-Anne and Perrie are not only beautiful on the outside, but beautiful on the inside. They care greatly about Mixers and put in effort whenever they sing, which is evident with every song they write and sing. Their songs are powerful and impact the lives of anyone who hears it. They will make you laugh, cry, smile and inspire you. Little Mix is the best music group.

Little Mix has inspired me in so many ways. Can't wait for Album 3!

They are one of the best singing groups. Even I have chosen to make a poster about them in school! They should be in number 1 on the song list. They are the best singers and they should be awarded for what they have done, like in courage people to sing and dance! They should be the number 1!

I like it how their band was created. Every one of them is unique in their own way and act as one.

10 Big Time Rush

Never heard of them.

Big time rush is cool

Big Time Rush is the best band ever. If anyone listens to their music once, he/she would forget every other music. Plus they are good looking and have a great T.V. show too.

Lyrical Masterminds, so influential in our modern day society they even had a T.V. show named after them

The Contenders

11 Jackson 5 Jackson 5

Love abc and want you back Michael Jackson is the best

ON THIS LIST JACKSONS ARE THE BETS THEY HAVE INCREADIBLE MUSIC AND AN AMAZING BROTHER MICHAEL JACKSON WHICH IS AND WAS THE KING OF POP HE WAS THE BEST LONG LIVE MY LITTLE MJ!

They have the best 60 songs ever made

12 Backstreet Boys Backstreet Boys

The Backstreet Boys have sold over 130 million records worldwide. According to Billboard, they are the first group since Sade to have their first seven albums reach the top 10 on the Billboard 200. They rose to fame with their debut international album, Backstreet Boys (1996). In the following year, they released their second international album, Backstreet's Back (1997) and their debut album in the United States which continued the group's success worldwide. They rose to superstardom with their album Millennium (1999) and its follow-up album, Black & Blue (2000). After a three-year hiatus, the band regrouped and have released their comeback album: Never Gone (2005), as well as two further albums Unbreakable (2007) and This Is Us (2009).

Their lyrics is best and they have much knowledge of songs and rythim of every song is best and the they have meaning in every song and they also won best international music group award and all other bands are waste in front of these group and they must be top as well they have given logo of prince of pop... Backstreet Boys rules...

I'm pretty young still in middle school and my mom listened to it everyday and I like the music a lot they should be top ten

Best band. Should be in top 3 easily.

13 ABBA ABBA ABBA were a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

Incredible voices and songs! One of the best groups ever!

I love their songs, they are very talented. Today, I think ABBA songs should be listened a lot more. They are an awesome pop band. - ivylee

No doubt! Abba's songs have an ever lasting amazing impression

Abba were musical genius, turning out original well produced songs with hit after hit. How anyone could think the Beatles were better than Abba must be tone deaf and wearing rose tinted ear phones.
Abba's songs will be played long after everyone else's have been deservedly forgotten. And those who voted one direction must still be in school and never heard of Abba. Get real.

17 Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony Fifth Harmony is an American girl group based in Miami, composed of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, Lauren Jauregui, and previously, Camila Cabello until her departure from the group on December 18, 2016. The group signed a joint record deal with Simon Cowell's label Syco Records and L.A.

Hey um no offense but I'll put Fifth Harmony above Little Mix just because of their greater success. But I think both girl bands should be treated equally as they are both the new generations of English girl bands apart from TLC, Destiny's Child etc. I really don't really like it when the harmonizers and mixers start to get into an ugly fight, because mainly one side of the fandom will start posting bad comments on the other, which results in the other fandom starting to get mad and to start a fight with the main cause. So, I hope all fandoms of all current bands will make peace and harmony to the social media, because you know the bands themselves would love ya'll to be happy.

Fifth Harmony is way better than most of the other bands in the list

Lets support fifth harmony because their great girl group..

I love the girl you are the best

18 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

Even though Maroon 5 has many fans and are considered more of a pop band, they still have many excellent songs including "Payphone" and "Moves like Jagger" that are still played today. They have most definitely left their mark on music, and while they may not be my favorite band, they still deserve some recognition.

Come on, One Direction 2? They must be in top 5. How can we forget their old songs, this love, beautiful goodbye, She will be loved?

MAROON 5 has to come on top5.not in hear

The best group in tge world

33 The Script The Script The Script is an Irish pop rock band formed in 2001. The band comprises keyboardist and lead vocalist Danny O'Donoghue, guitarist and vocalist Mark Sheehan and drummer Glen Power.

The Script are such a great band. True all-rounders, they write, perform, produce. They are in their element live, their shows are truly amazing, life-enhancing experiences that will leave you on a high for days! Despite all their success, they remain grounded, humble, and grateful to their fans, to whom they are very connected. Whether writing, recording, touring or enjoying some well deserved time off, they maintain an almost constant online prescence, chatting to the fans they describe as 'family'

My favourite band. Not only are they talented but they engage regularly with their fans

Cool group for real

I've been a The Script fan for almost 10 years and can honestly say their music has got me through the worst times of my life! I discovered them when I was at my weakest and very ill and they made every day brighter! I've seen them live loads of times already and they always sound amazing look amazing and bring so much energy to each show! Their interaction with fans at shows and on social media is just phenomenal! Even my 13 year old daughter whose seen 1D Shaun Mendes and The Script twice said The Script are best by far and get better! ❤

42 The Black Eyed Peas The Black Eyed Peas The Black Eyed Peas is an American hip hop group, consisting of rappers will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and singer Fergie.

The Black Eyed Peas are ingenious. They have real talent unlike most people think, Fergie has no talent? Pfft! Watch a live video of "Finally" by her also listen to barracuda, also their music is just heart-pounding and gets you going! I swear people judge them based of their 5th studio album "The E.N. D, agree it their worst but look at the others! They were just experimenting. But if you watched interviews and knew them for a while you'd know how down to Earth they are, they deserve #1 Also One Direction what!
