TOP 20 LIST: Best British Rock Bands Ever

Britain's Evening Standard newspaper recently compiled what it considers to be the "20 Greatest British Rock Bands of All Time." No surprise that The Beatles topped the list, but others on the list show how different American and British taste runs.

  1. Beatles
  2. Led Zeppelin
  3. Radiohead
  4. Pink Floyd
  5. Rolling Stones
  6. Smiths
  7. Oasis
  8. Cure
  9. Clash
  10. Stone Roses
  11. Kinks
  12. Queen
  13. Blur
  14. Black Sabbath
  15. Who
  16. Roxy Music
  17. T. Rex
  18. Jam
  19. Super Furry Animals
  20. Joy Division

Naturally this list is completely subjective, but in terms of popularity, longevity and success there are a few noticeable omissions, such as Genesis, The Moody Blues, Yes, Cream and Dire Straits.
