For me it is simple, The Beatles.

But I am a Liverpool lad!

I know Oasis Lad posted a similar thread but I believe he wanted music posting, I'm just interested in what you all think is Britains all time greatest band?

Are The Begees classed as British?

I know they were born in Yorkshire but they moved to Australia!

Cool, thought you may have said the obvious but.....

Its well documented that the Gallaghers loved the Beatles, I think they re-introduced a youger audience to the 'band' type music in the 90's when 'techno' type music was rife!

The Cure

The Smiths
Depeche Mode

Never quite got the Smiths to be honest, glad to see the Jam in the that list, made a big impression on me in the 80's, and Madness to be fair!

UB40
they are the best no doubt

Onslow.
08-07-2007, 08:37 AM
yea UB40 are good.

I respect all bands to be honest - if they have got talent, play there own instruments and write there own songs. Then thats brilliant.

Much better than the ****ing wank Boyzone, Westlife **** we have to put up with...AND all those reality tv pop show cunts aswell.


I say my fave british band is queen...but i proberbly listen to the Clash more than anythig.
