The Contenders

11 Gorillaz Gorillaz Gorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs.

I remember being 8 years old back in 2005, when their sophomore album Demon Days came out. I didn't like them, mainly because of their aggressive image as opposed to the music which I didn't listen too much, beyond Feel Good Inc which I didn't have much of an opinion of at the time.

Then in 2014, I relistened to them after seeing Feel Good Inc on Watchmojo's Best Animated Music Videos list. I then completely reversed my opinion. I know think that they're one of my favourite bands, not to mention probably the best band of the noughties. Their music is accessible but also has intelligent lyricism as well as good guest spots from artists as diverse as hip hop groups D12 & De La Soul to old rock greats like Lou Reed and half of The Clash. They also released great albums too, including the aforementioned Demon Days & Plastic Beach, one of the best albums of 2010 in my opinion.

They are great artists and one of which I under appreciated at their peak. Oh well, better late than ...more - Mrveteran

12 Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon is a British rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively ...read more.

I can't stand a lot of their old stuff, Oli Sykes's voice was screechy, raspy and just sounded unappealing. However since Sempiternal came out the songs have been a lot more tuneful, and whilst Oli doesn't scream as much as he used to I can now understand more of what he's saying.
I'm sorry to all the hardcore fans out there who pine for their old style to return, but the band have hit new heights of success with their more recent efforts, and I don't see them returning anytime soon.
