And without further ado, without clever and witty introductions, let's proceed. The ten best bands of all time. The best bands that is. So no Elvis, no Mozzer, no Thåström etc... Mind!
1. The Smiths
- For the perfection (not a single bad song or album in the entire catalogue), the melodies, the lyrics, the ability to accompany every single mood and situation with a fantastic song.
Best song: There Is a Light That Never Goes Out
2. Joy Division
- Another perfect band, although not as versatile as The Smiths. But they did make two perfect albums and loads of marvellous songs. Ian Curtis is one of the most astonishing lyricists/front men of all time and the soundscapes they created (along with producer Martin Hannett) is other-worldly.
Best song: Draw between Love Will Tear Us Apart and Twenty-Four Hours
3. The Cure
- For the versatility (although their absolute strength is in the dark and brooding area, they've made a bit too many iffy pop songs)…
