42 The Beta Band V 1 Comment
43 Teenage Fanclub

Sunshine music for dreich days.

Best scottish band by a stretch

44 We Were Promised Jetpacks

One of the best live Scottish acts today. They're very much about the crescendo and the wall of sound they hit you with is incredible. Their 2009 'These Four Walls' is a hell of a debut album. 2011's 'In the Pit of the Stomach' is nearly an hour of blissful indie post-punk with the aforementioned walls of sound. 2014's 'Unravelling' shows their experimental side. Excited for what's to come of this group.

45 Django Django

Been a huge fan of Django Django for a while. Just saw them play at the Unknown Festival in Croatia. One of the best live acts I have ever seen.

46 The Waterboys

Mike Scott is the Waterboys and as a supreme songwriter his canon of songs has no rival among Scots. An extraordinary talent.

Apart from Whole of the Moon, Mike Scott's Waterboys went complete under the radar until I heard Moden Blues (2015) which is an excellent album. Now explored the back catalogue. It's like finding a musical treasure chest.

Cannot believe no one has nominated mike Scotts vehicle for his songwriting genius. Deserve top 10 for whole of the moon alone but so much more to this magnificent band

Fishermens blues one of best songs ever. Unbelievable no one voting for this wonderful band

47 Wet Wet Wet

Most underrated band with great songs and they are back soon with new material

Great lead singer in Marty Pellow and one of the biggest selling tracks of all time in Love is all around.

48 Foil

"Spread It All Around" is a classic album

49 The Silencers
50 Marmalade

Why are they not near the top?

51 Capercaillie
52 Skerryvore

Great band and always good for a great time and dancing around... if ya have seen them "live" once ya keep want to see them again in concert

53 Red Hot Chilli Pipers

Once you've seen them live, you will always remember. Just a happy band.

57 The Delgados

Messed up melodic madness with great lyrics.

58 Aereogramme

Wow, I had to add it to the list. I was at least expecting them to be on it haha. They're pretty awesome, hopefully people check them out even though they broke up

59 Love and Money

Can't believe that such a great band could be overlooked? James Grant. Über talented. 'Strange Kind of Love' is an album that sounds fabulous no matter how many times it's played.

James Grant is a musical genius. "Dogs in the traffic" is the best album by an scottish group that I�'ve heard

60 Baby Chaos

Released two fantastic albums in the mid 1990s, namely "Safe Sex, Designer Drugs and the Death of Rock 'n' Roll" and "Love Your Self Abuse".
