This is a really tough one since the U.K. has produced so many of my favorite groups and solo artists.

My personal "Best UK 10" is an interchangeable one where from about 50-60 UK bands/solo artists I pull from. I like a ton of UK bands from the ‘60s-‘70s-‘80s-‘90s-‘00s.

Currently off the top of my head in no particular order:

1. The Kinks (If push came to shove, these guys actually do hold my top spot though!)
2. The Move (Roy Wood rules!)
3. Squeeze
4. The Beautiful South
5. David Bowie
6. Rolling Stones
7. Procol Harum
8. Small Faces
9. King Crimson
10. The Clash

And then these which can easily be swapped out with any of the above:

The Beatles
The Zombies
Led Zeppelin
Black Sabbath
Pink Floyd
The Who
ELO
Queen
Donovan
Nick Drake
The Bee Gees
Roxy Music
Nick Lowe
Robyn Hitchcock
The Soft Boys
Elvis Costello & The Attractions
The Waterboys
XTC
The Chameleons
Wire
Killing Joke
Echo & The Bunnymen
New Order
Magazine
Gang of Four
Cocteau Twins
James
PJ Harvey
The Waterboys
The Pogues
The Smiths
Radiohead
Massive Attack
Aphex Twin
Stereolab
Super Furry Animals

and many more........................
