    Let's do a poll to find the best of British bands (as chosen by FF). To start with we need our contenders, so feel free to offer your favourites.

    Beatles
    The Smiths
    Oasis
    Coldplay
    Blur
    The Courteeners
    Arctic Monkeys
    Pink Floyd
    Queen
    Led Zeppelin
    The Cure
    The Beautiful South

    There is no limit on genre. But perhaps we need some sort of limit, so let's say no groups with only 1 album.

    I am biased towards Pink Floyd. The greatest for me.

    For the ones not mentioned.

    Would put in Gerry and the Pacemakers. Fairly underrated. Similar sound to the Beatles.

    Black Sabbath.
    Iron Maiden.

    Fleetwood Mac. I know they are British American now.

    The Small Faces
    The Prodigy

    And any best of British bands has to include The Rolling Stones.


    Edit - The Dave Clark Five...??

    Dexys Midnight Runners . Might not have a lot of takers here.
    I love their unique sound and don't mind their quirky videos.

    Do they count as a band. Surely that many members is an orchestra?
