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.

No no no just boring old music. Same white music everyday back in the day. Were the black people at, MJ, Tupac,Whitney Houston, Marvin gae and not fat Elvis Presley

easily #1

The best boy band ever..

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!

Freddie Mercury is the Goat! No one had the range of vocals he had.

HOW IS ONE DIRECTION BETTER THAN QUEEN

Amazing can’t think of any band better than the
Beatles

Best group in the world.the Beatles count touch them

4 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin was 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.

Everyone in Zeppelin was ridiculously talented at their respected instrument, yet everyone in one direction is musically untalented. Queen did not have musicians as talented (Maybe Freddie is a better vocalist than Plant but that is biased) or influence near Led Zeppelin (But Queen are awesome though)

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 was an English progressive rock band formed in 1965 in London, England. 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 Guitar), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters ...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

Best of all time

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 currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums).

Not only the best group but also the best teacher for life

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

8 Green Day Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk, punk rock, and alternative rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) .

Best in his kind

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

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.

the best

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.

Ain't I Glad That Marcus Collins Didn't Win, Thank You Little Mix For Stealing His Crown - Bndspitw

Love them

They hella ku

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

11 Backstreet Boys Backstreet Boys The Backstreet Boys are an American vocal group, formed in Orlando, Florida in 1993. The group consists of AJ McLean, Howie D., Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell.

I prefer backstreet Boys over One Direction

This is a band that even heterosexual males love. They're the best

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...

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.

16 The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City.
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.

I love the girl you are the best

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

Lets support fifth harmony because their great girl group..

29 DNCE DNCE DNCE is an American pop rock band. The group consists of members Joe Jonas, Jack Lawless, Cole Whittle, and JinJoo Lee.
30 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

37 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!

Whay the heck the BEP are so unique they are in top 10 easy

38 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Linkin park pays attention to realities of the world more than other bands that I have seen and it's good

39 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

These guys rock my world.

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! ❤

Hallelujah - Pentatonix listen to this ^_^ this is so amazing

They're the best Acapella group in my opinion

They take songs you kinda, sorta like and do amazing a cappella arrangements that you can’t forget. Scott Hoying can do vocal riffs your mind can not fathom. Mitch Grassi has the voice of an angel. Kirstie Maldonado is nobody’s underdog. Kevin Olusola beatboxes and plays the cello…at the same damn time. Avi Kaplan can do overtones and jump octaves in a single breath. They don’t just do covers. These people are amazing and highly underrated. And they don't hide behind their singing.sup3rfruit.

Rarely does a group combine artistry and politics as gracefully as U2. Certainly not all 50+ groups that are ahead of this one. U2 will always be listened to and always respected.
