Anti-folk artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good anti-folk bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’s label and what albums they've put out. This list of the top anti-folk bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Anti-folk groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all anti-folk bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest anti-folk bands of all time, since the most famous anti-folk artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best anti-folk music.

You can click on the anti-folk band names to see more information about that particular notable anti-folk group. If they're near the top of the best anti-folk artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top anti-folk bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the anti-folk band names themselves.

List features Beck Hansen, Florence and the Machine and more. Upvote the artists you like and downvote the artists you don't. Which is the better choice for the top of this list Björk or Tom Morello?

All important, significant and iconic names in anti-folk music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new anti-folk bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of anti-folk, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into anti-folk music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good anti-folk bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent anti-folk bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best anti-folk bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest anti-folk musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular anti-folk bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
