241 Rise Against Rise Against Rise Against is an American hardcore punk band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1999. The band's current line-up comprises vocalist/rhythm guitarist Tim McIlrath, lead guitarist Zach Blair, bassist Joe Principe and drummer Brandon Barnes. They are known for popularizing punk.

They're really good, Tim voice is AMAZING. They worth it. )

Rise Against is the best band of all time, they just have to win.
GO Rise Against!

Rise Against are great. They have excellent lyrics and a great message. They have so many amazing songs they could play. When I look at some of these and see ” I love this Disney Channel pop singer and this awful boy band so much that they should be on the Olympics” I become sick to my stomach. We need them to play something like Satellite.

Olympic singers should be the one with powerful voice to impress audience, singing skill and international fame like him. - Benio

246 They Might Be Giants They Might Be Giants They Might Be Giants is an American alternative rock band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

Oh yeah I would die to see them at the 2012 olympics they are the single best alternative band of all-time. John linnell and the rest of the band put on amazing shows. - queen11

250 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

He is genius. He deserve to open Olympic games in London! I think he is the best variant for this mission!

Radiohead is the best music group in the world. Why I do think so? Because they embody all the feelings and emotions that each of us experience every day. Olympics is primarily a competition of human souls. Let Radiohead remind us of how difficult to keep fighting with yourself.

The best band in the world, with great lyrics and music, it's new era in music history

Deserves to perform at the olympics - Jiorl

In my opinion, they are the best Johnny's group in terms of singing. The blending of their voices will surely make your heart flutter (or in Japanese terms, doki-doki) Though they've been through a lot of trials for the past 7 years but their charisma, love for music and their love of their fans has never wavered. I will forever be a NEWS fan. I will forever love NEWS.

Just love the way they are. Love their songs, love their dance and love their smiles. From their songs, strong power and supports are gave out. That's what the performers should have in Olympic games - to supports the athletes.

A very awesome Johnny's Entertainment group. They really put their heart and soul into their music. Every single one of them has their own voice but when they blend it together it makes a wonderful sound.

Why they are the best voice, the best music. I love and admirable NEWS. Kei-chan, Shige, Massu e Tego Chankapana NEWS forever.

254 Florence and the Machine Florence and the Machine Florence and the Machine are an English indie rock band that formed in London in 2007, consisting of lead singer Florence Welch, Isabella Summers, and a collaboration of other artists.

Florence + The Machine I chose because she is an amazing artist and she stands out from all the other artists she brought something new to the world and her voice is so powerful and she will be the reason that I watch the olympics if she sings on it if she gets to sing on the olympics I will be so happy and so will everyone else and she comes from London so she will make London proud in my opinion most artists sound the same and have the same type of music and it will just be amazing if she could sing at the olymics 2012

Florence The Machine are one of the most amazing bands these days. They're innovative, their music is like a fresh air on the boring pop scene and Florence got one powerful voice. So, my voice goes to them and Lady Gaga.

They represent the UK really well. Their music is innovative and inspiring and Florence's voice is more than EPIC!

Um is this even a question?
