U2 should be at least a little higher. They’re one of the very few bands that maintain their 80′s sense, yet are still fairly popular and have stayed together for over 30 years. I would put them in the top ten probably.
I agree with littletedword…Coldplay is all right, I think they sound okay. I like them quite a bit. But you can’t even compare them to the sensational bands of the 70′s and 80′s. When it says the greatest artists of all time, it means the very greatest of all time, not the bands that are pretty popular today. Coldplay could never beat out the old legendary bands.
