The Top Ten

1 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 everything. They are completely, 100% deserving of the #1 spot. They're humble, talented, and amazing to their fans. They care so much about all of us and keep up interaction to the max. I've had the privilege of seeing them live twice and their energy onstage is immense.

Without question The Script are the best band, extremely talented musicians and songwriters they are also extremely humble never forgetting their roots, very kind and caring to their fans who they call their family and totally deserve to be number 1

They totally deserve the #1 Spot in this list. They don't only create music that touches the heart and soul, but they're also down to earth people and very close to their fans. And of course they're great live too! I can't think of a better band to be #1!

The Script is hands down the best band of all time. I'm obsessed with their songs and their personalities and though they're getting on a bit, 38-41 year-olds are a lot better then some of the young pop singers these days.
