Best Irish Music Artists
Thin Lizzy are so underrated, they are completely overshadowed by other artists!
This band is amazing!
Should be number 1.
2nd best band ever. Definitely best from Ireland. They have two of the best albums ever- The Joshua Tree & The Unforgettable Fire. Bono's a great vocalist, and them everyone else is underrated. Edge is one of the best guitarists, listen to Pride, Sunday Bloody Sunday, and Until The End Of The World, Clayton's one of the best bassist, listen to New Year's Day, Bullet The Blue Sky, and I Will Follow, and Larry's a great drummer, listen to Sunday Bloody Sunday and Bullet The Blue Sky. Such a talented, creative band.
This is easy to decide. U2 is simply the greatest Irish bands and also one of the greatest bands in general. Bono has an amazing voice The Edge is a very good guitarist.
Other good Irish music artists are:
2: The Cranberries: The Cranberries are like U2 with a female singer.
3: Snow Patrol
4: The Script
5: Sinead O Connor
Sunday Bloody Sunday is a song that is so expressive. 'War' and their Live Aid concert was perfect. The whole Joshua Tree album was massive. Achtung Baby was marvelously unique. Beautiful Day is uplifting. Need more examples?
My first concert was to one of theirs and I still haven't been to a better one 3 years later, the only one even close to that good was another one of theirs. They are wonderful artist and people. They act from the heart and are an inspiration to many. And even though they're quite famous, they still are close to their fans (The Script Family).
Absolutely underrated! Been to many of their gigs and the way they interact with the audience is unique! Not only brilliant musicians but also the most humble and kind persons I ever met in music business! Each of them an absolute gem!
These guys are truly amazing. They are the most genuine, down to earth and stay true to their roots. Seen the guys 3 times and waiting on my fourth gig in June. The interaction these guys have with their fans is just amazing!
It's disrespectful to put The Script before Cranberries. It's mostly U2 #1 who sold 175 million records worldwide & The Cranberries #2 who sold more than 40 millions albums worldwide. Then the tastes, Dolores O'Riordan is at the top, named top female artist of all time by Billboard's Alternative Songs, this says it all.
Those who knew the 90's, can not vote anything other than the cranberries...
Away from commercial music and the "bling-bling" band...
Best irish band ever. Probably a top20 in Rock History and the most underrated band ever.
Why? It hasn't an explanation.
One of the absolute greatest bands out of Ireland, with the animosity and fusion of classic Irish folk with modern (at the time) rock. Truly a great band not afraid to get into your face.
The grandfathers of celtic punk have to be on this list.
One of the finest musicians ever - his guitar can cry and speak. R.I.P. Gary.
The only guitarist who can be compare to Hendrix. The person who paved the way for all the other Irish musicians to come. The man who inspired Brian May, Johnny Marr, Slash and the Edge. The man who got Clapton back into the blues. Rory is, whitout a doubt, the greatest Irish musician ever.
Amazing guitarist, musician, and person, my hero he deserves to be number 1 on every positive guitar list.
The first Irish superstar... The rest followed but no one could play like Rory... Greatest guitarist ever
Great person, singer and writer. Can't not be here.
Should be at number 1
She's too fantastic to be at 13. She's got to move to at least top 5. Well it's only a matter of time.
She transcends most other mere musicians, even the other Irish!
Are you kidding me? Enya in 21?
She deserves top 5 al least.
Definitely one of the best groups to come from Ireland. 14 number one hits. Well deserved.
Westlife is number 1, what's the list saying? Don't get it.
2. Brian McFadden
3. The Waterboys
The Irish Simon and Garfunkel. They should be in the top 5.
The Corrs number 25? The angelic voice of Andrea Corr must be higher.
No one put them on the list... Really?
Kodaline is an amazing band! Their albums are so different from each other but still so good! In a Perfect World has melodious tunes while Coming Up for Air has heavier songs. Can't wait for the new album! The singles show great promise!
If you're searching for good music, KODALINE are exactly what you're looking for...they're just way down underrated
The best Irish band playing right now! "In a perfect world" really is perfection!
Bottle banks make a sweeter sound!
The Waterboys's leader Mike Scott is a massive song writing talent but he is not Irish. He is a Scottish.
They came in like and went away like a bullet! Still listening 20 yrs later!
Brilliant band with great lyrics and music as a whole. Should definitely be in the top ten at least.
Best love song of all time is chasing cars because it is happy and sad
Absolutely top 5.
I've lost my leg
# 34? I don't know what kind of music the world listens to but this guy clearly deserves a slot in the top 10.
This guy is a living legend... He is so talented, just amazing!
Dana's Easter album 'Love my Life' and 12" single 'For You, For Us' have money back guarantees, if not totally satisfied... in select stores now! Very select stores.
Such an under rated act. Breaks my heart he nver reached half of the success he deserved.
Listen to "From Eden" or "Like Real People Do" or basically any of his other songs. He's brilliant.
One of the best rising stars of 2015. Glad to see he didn't turn out to be a one hit wonder.
An amazing artist with such a pure, beautiful voice, fabulous!
