Best Bands with a Number in the Band NameTypically, you know a new band is going to fade quickly when they have a number in the band name, especially if it is just tacked on there for no good reason. These bands have deviated from the norm and have made it big in spite of their band name.
This band is simply amazing. Five brothers have created a light, meaningful album. I honestly don't want to single out any one of them. Everyone has talent, from Jackie to Tito to Jermaine to Marlon. However, young Michael Jackson is undeniably fascinating. He's a little kid singing far beyond his years. That's the distinction between being talented, gifted, and possessing innate, genuine talent. What Michael Jackson has is innate and genius, like magic. It just makes you smile with amazement all the time. He's just too good and so cute.
Of course, the Jackson 5 is #1! They're the greatest group ever, along with The Jacksons, whether with a number or without a number!
U2 doesn't deserve this place. They should be in 1st place. Not too loud, not too boring - just PERFECT! The Jackson 5 were very good in their time, but come on, be realistic. Their time of awesomeness has passed.
U2 rocks. They are, of course, the best band of all time with a number in the name. Love those guys. One is awesome; With or Without You is very, very beautiful. I love U2.
Best band in the world. Ever.
Them and Green Day are the true kings of pop-punk. Blink's music is absolutely amazing, featuring the epic tunes of I Miss You, Always, First Date, Stay Together for the Kids, The Rock Show, Adam's Song, All the Small Things, Dammit, Josie, and the best being What's My Age Again, among so many more.
Blink-182 revolutionized the pop-punk genre while inspiring most of the biggest pop-punk bands. They also had their own style that very few bands could replicate.
I love Blink-182. I always have and always will. Even though they have split, they are still my favorite band!
Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan (Drums), their most notable drummer, passed away in 2009, being temporarily replaced by Mike Portnoy, who was replaced... read more
When I saw this list, I immediately thought of 30 Seconds to Mars, Blink, U2, and A7X at the top. Seeing The Jackson 5 there was just not fair. Of course, they were good, but should they really count? They certainly don't deserve their 52% of votes while A7X exists. Listen to Beast and the Harlot by A7X, and you'll know what I mean.
I don't think The Jackson 5 should even count. I mean, what?
A7X is the best. It goes without saying. They're better than 30 Seconds to Mars, too.
A7X is much better than J5 or 30 Seconds to Mars. A7X has got it all: super drumming, cool guitar solos, and good vocals. The kind of things that they do requires some real skill, not like some pop artist who becomes famous overnight and has no skill at all.
They are good. They have some bad songs, but listen to the albums Songs About Jane and Overexposed.
Best band with a number in their name and my personal favorite band of all time.
This band blows my mind! They are in my top 10 favorite bands list. They should be higher up because Adam Gontier has an awesome, sexy voice that I will always remember!
Also, funny thing, Adam is so ugly that if he were halfway good-looking, he would have 100 percent more material, right?
Seriously, who cares about the name of the lineup? They're so awesome they could call themselves Jimmy Carter.
Obvious choice! Although I do love Nine Inch Nails, I have to go with the B-52's here because their first album is one of the greatest new wave/punk albums ever. There's a moon in the sky, it's called the moon...lol! It was 6060-842! And I'm waiting for you! Dial the number to call, get no answer at all. Hello? I'm sorry. Hello?! I'm sorry. HELLO?! I'm sorry. And then they saw a rock, but it wasn't a rock. It was a rock lobster!
Best band! The songwriting is great. I especially love the cello in their songs.
3 Doors Down is the best current band, in my belief.
Are you kidding me? 3 Doors Down is easily in the top 3.
Why are they only ranked 22? I know they're a newer band, but all of their music is amazing. Just listen to Regional at Best. Love this band.
Number 10? No, they should definitely be ranked higher than some of these bands. This is my favorite band ever.
Best band to have ever lived.
It does not define them, much like people have trouble defining their sound. Plus, it's the police code for indecent exposure.
What the what!? 311 is also a channel number for ABC Family.
These Canadians have some of the best songs of the 2000s, with All Killer No Filler being like a top 10 for the best pop-punk albums of all time.
Awesome band! I love Still Waiting, and my favorite is Pieces. I love The Sums, haha.
Best band ever! Punk rock.
They've grown musically and have amassed a huge international following.
Yes, I love their music!
This is one of the strongest bands with its incredibly devoted fandom called Directioners.
This band is pure art. Created by the Gothic Lolita icon Mana-sama, the band produces a Gothic metal sound with industrial effects and a deep, nocturnal image.
I was just about to say there is no number, but then I remembered "dix" means 10 in French. Gosh, I am dumb...
I love them! They are just great!
The band was initially formed by Vince Hornsby (bassist) and Morgan Rose (drummer) under the name Snake Nation. John Connolly (guitarist) and Lajon Witherspoon (lead vocalist) would later join along with Clint Lowery (guitarist) and they would be renamed Rumblefish. After finding out the name was taken, they changed their name to Crawlspace, releasing the song "My Ruin" to the Mortal Kombat soundtrack called "More Kombat". The name Crawlspace belonged to yet another band, and they settled on the name Sevendust after an insecticide brand called "Sevin Dust". ...read more.
One of the best bands of the nineties! They had more guts than most death metal bands.
So many great hits!
They are legends!
They might act like idiots sometimes, but the music they make is good. They have a lot of songs about being social outcasts, broken families, and how everything will be okay in the end.
They're a pop-punk band, not a boy band :)
Listen to them if you need to chill or feel less lonely.
Just because they have a majority of female fans doesn't mean they don't make good music.
