    I`m pleased to hear that :)! I saw them live twice, first at the Luxor/Prime Club, the second time at the Live Music Hall. Guess next time they`re ready for the Palladium:D.

    I will if you like. The song "We both go down together" is from their album "Picaresque" which is my favourite, even better than their most recent one, the highly acclaimed "The Crane Wife".

    The Beatles
    The Smiths
    Oasis
    Blur
    The Jam
    The Clash
    The Who
    The Kinks
    The Police
    Libertines

    Yes that's 11, borrowed one from the US list.


    White Stripes
    Nirvana
    The Doors
    Jimi Hendrix Experience
    Beastie Boys
    Blondie
    The Isley Brothers
    Fleetwood Mac
    Jefferson Airplane

    Clearly some more Hip Hop / Funk / Soul bands missing but I thought I'd keep it simple. Also kept it free of solo artists, because that wasn't the question.

    I love The Auteurs and all of Luke Haines work. Glad to see it made someone's list!

    Also, someone needs to add The Magnetic Fields for best American bands.
