    Since theres a theme of these types, I googled London Bands, seems to be plenty but who knows if it's actually correct. Anyway...

    Just realised I put Iron Maiden in it twice. Nocunts going to vote for them anyway probably :52:

    I like Queen, Pink Floyd and the Clash the most but hard to pick one of them, decided on Pink Floyd since their songs Comfortably Numb and Wish You Were Here are probably my 2 favourite songs out the 3 of them.

    IRON MAIDEN - shame I can't vote twice :bbpd:

    Almost impossible to vote from that list. Nae Genesis - they're from Guildford I think which is almost London. Where's The Jam from & Kate Bush? - must close to London as well.

    The Police from London - *!! a Geordie leading them and a septic on the drums.

    I think quite a lot of this list qualified because they recorded in London - so where's The Beatles?

    So many good bands from London you could have a list that was 3 pages long for the amount of good musicians that have come out of London.

    Not really a massive fan of any of them but went with The Police from that list

    Although it would have been Blur
