just the best. I mean, if the beatles and the beach boys didn't exist. but they're still one of the best. id like to see maroon 5 or imagine dragons make A rush of blood to the Head, a Viva la Vida, or Parachutes. wheres keane?

The Best Band in the world. Which Band has produced so many successes and quality music as Coldplay? I've Never seen...
The album A Rush of Blood to the Head is the best of the 21st century.

Nearly as many hits as The Beatles and they're still just halfway through... certainly on of the greats!

Coldplay is easily the best band in its genre. They put on amazing live shows as well.

2 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Their music style is very different from other bands ... They are a beautiful blend of different genres ... Critics hate them because they aren't rock but in my openion we shouldn't fall into genres and judge an artist ...
Imagine dragons are the best!

I still wait desperately for Imagine Dragons to come back and take the world by storm.
Thet deserve being at spot 1.
The most deserving one.

Imagine dragons is one of my favorite bands of all time. All and all, I voted for them because not only does their music make my ears happy, their song lyrics can also be deep and thought provoking.

I love imagine dragons and their one song called rise up witch you probably have not heard of though

3 OneRepublic OneRepublic is an American pop rock band. Formed in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2002 by lead singer Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on Myspace as an unsigned act.

They made a lot of good songs such as Good Life, I Lived, Marchin On, Heaven, The Less I Know, Life In Color, All We Are, All This Time, Mercy, Burning Bridges...

A classic. Their lyrics are one of the best, combined with their determined efforts defines them.

Common onerepublic is better than Coldplay they are underrated they deserve more attention

I know I voted for #Onerepublic but I still love coldplay... And onerepublic is my life

4 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

I actually love maroon 5 and oneRepublic but I had to vote for maroon 5. their songs gives you the chills, and you don't get bored of their music easily. they still manage to make some crazy songs. I'm a fan of them since I was 9. I'm seventeen now and I still love them. they deserve to be above the script. and if you never listened to them, or you don't like them. listen to 'never leave this bed' and I'm pretty sure you'll change your mind about them

Maroon 5 is one can listen from start to finish that is not Hip Hop like Moka Only. Also not as weak like Coldplay, and not as weird as Imagine Dragons. Thought Image Dragons is indie as well. Maroon 5 is fun love and upbeat through and practical through can notice in basically every song on most albums about them.

They don't make pop rock songs anymore, but their songs are really good!

Amazing! From Kara's Flowers to Maroon 5!

5 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.

Best tunes of all.

Favorites on the list, they deserve a top spot.

How are the Script not better then imagine dragons One Republic and cold play?

I wouldn't call them pop-rock. Maybe some of their music is between the two genres, but it's more like because they're the root of both, not because they were intentionally combining the two.

Ugh. I voted for them before reading this comment yeah you are right.

Really, the imagine dragons and the script in front of these legends.
