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 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.

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.

I think the Beatles are the best band ever. They always have that one song that will always be there for you. They have been popular since the 1960's and it's so amazing how after 50 years since the band even existed they are still popular. They made a change in the world. They made what is called music, not like any other ''boy band'' like One Direction, don't get me wrong I love One Direction too, but they haven't created that one song that will always be there for me.

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.

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!

2 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.

Everyone has different opinions about every singer/band. For me One Direction is the best band ever. They are just normal 19-24 yrs age boys having fun. There songs are something which every girls wants to hear. They really sing our feelings
All The Love. R x

Me: mum, we have to move to the uk
Mum: why? Give me 5 good reasons
Me: Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik
(I show my mum pictures of one direction and their music)
Mum: you get the bags packed, I'll call the removalists

One Direction has that one thing that makes them beautiful so it's gotta be them. I wish I could have a moment in time where I'd meet them. Some are taken but they still should be the top band. If they're losing to BTR, come on, tell me a lie.

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...

3 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.

Why in god's name are big time rush and one direction above queen?
Sure one may argue that currently they are selling many records (supposedly) but come ten or twenty years ago no one will care about them because they are pop garbage.
Queen on the other other hand has been around since the 70's and still inspires people today.

This is one of the only bands that has the ability to be both catchy and meaningful.
Every melody is perfect for the mood of the song and will get in your ear like a pop song, but unlike a pop song, the depth to queen's songs has you coming back to listen forever always just as riveted by it the 1000th time as you were the 1st.

Queens isband that has so many different kinds of music that were hits. They were highly skilled musicians to be able to switch genres and playing styles left and right. I'm sorry, but BTR is nothing, just auto tune.

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.

4 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)

Best Heavy Metal group of all time.

Best band. Period.

5 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.

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...

How is there not a 3-way tie for first place...The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Moody Blues?

Greatest British band ever period. RIP Syd Barrett

6 Rush

How is big time rush above this?

Best of all time

7 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). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture of Alternative ...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!

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

It should be on top because it more hit song than any other

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

8 Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk, punk rock, and alternative rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1986. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative ...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..!

Best in his kind

Good indeed

9 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.

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

THE BEST GROUP EVER. A girlgroup who doesn't have any drama between them and always stand for body positivity and #girllove need to be in top 5. The best girlgroup ever.

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!

Little Mix are the BEST GIRL GROUP they inspired me their cute, funny and beautiful in the inside and outside Leigh Anne, Jade, Jesy and Perrie I love them there style and song says it all they should be proud of themself for there new single album hair it's catchy and their clothes are gorgeous. They deserve this chance.

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

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.

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.

People will still be listening to ABBA in 25 years and beyond. Definitely the greatest pop music band of all time.

. Make you dance and be happy. Is enjoyed by listeners of all ages. Melody is fantastic

The Contenders
11 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.

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...

Backstreet Boys will sing circles around One Erection
They are not your typical boy band, in fact they shouldn't even be considered a boy band since these "boys" sing so well
To top it off, they don't need to split after making music for 5 years like what One Direction did
Even Zayn Malik himself has stated that he hates One Direction and would never go back
Backstreet Boys will be the best singers alive, past or present
No one, and I mean no one and no group can sing or harmonize better than this group

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

12 The Police The Police were an English rock band formed in London in 1977. For the majority of their history, the band consisted of Sting, Andy Summers and Stewart Copeland.

14 Jackson 5 The Jackson 5, or Jackson Five, currently known as The Jacksons, are an American family music group. Formed in 1964, the founding members were elder brothers Jackie, Tito and Jermaine. Younger brothers Marlon and Michael would join after.

Love abc and want you back Michael Jackson is the best

They have the best 60 songs ever made

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!

15 Big Time Rush

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

Never heard of them.

Big time rush is cool

16 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 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 will list which band is the BEST is LITTLE MIX there the FIRST GIRL Band to WIN in the UK I'm from England and I'm proud! There singing is perfect I love it secret love song makes me cry. I would put 5h as the worst girl band.

Oh they are best with their diverse voices... the soft notes of normani...raspy voice of lauren...and high notes of ally and dinah...though miss camila

They are the first music group to ever have 1billion views on vevo. and by that I mean beating one dierection and little mix out even though they were from they same sho. better give those girls some respect

18 Wonder Girls Wonder Girls was a South Korean girl group formed by JYP Entertainment. The group's final line-up consisted of Yubin, Yeeun, Sunmi and Hyerim. Members Sunye and Sohee officially left the group in 2015, while Hyuna left in late 2007.

The first settled line-up consisted of Brian Jones (guitar, harmonica), Ian Stewart (piano), Mick Jagger (lead vocals, harmonica), Keith Richards (guitar), Bill Wyman (bass) and Charlie Watts (drums). ...read more.

It's very sad when One Direction is #2 and The Rolling Stones are #18. Check back in 10 years. One Direction who?

They were the best

22 The Wanted The Wanted are a British-Irish boy band consisting of members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes.
