While I like all of the above bands, my personal favourite would have to be The Smiths, followed closely by Joy Division/Warsaw, although my favourite song at the moment is 'I am the resurrection' by The Stone Roses.

No Happy Mondays mention?

I like Lamb too.

I can't decide between The Smiths, and Joy Division.

Best band has to be Oasis but there are many other notable bands that have shaped music culture. Bands like The Hollies, The Bee Gees, Herman's Hermits, Wayne Fontana, Freddie and The Dreamers, Joy Division and New Order. Begrudgingly you have to include The Smiths. I say begrudgingly because the guy's a complete jerk.

Loving Elbow right now. Are they a Manchester band? Forgive me if they're not.

From Bury. Which is part of Greater Manchester.

I may be wrong about them being from Manchester, but I am too lazy to fact-check. Echo and the Bunnymen are incredible. Someone please correct me if I am mistaken.

Oasis is my obvious answer.

BUT... I also adore The 1975. They're pretty awesome.
