The Best Blues Bands of All Time

List Criteria: This list is about pure blues players. Blues rock players and bands have their own lists. So no Clapton and Spencer here

Blues artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good blues 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 blues bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Blues 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 blues bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest blues bands of all time, since the most famous blues artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best blues music.

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

The list you're viewing is made up of items like Jimi Hendrix and The Rolling Stones. Vote for the best items by clicking the thumbs up button. Give a thumbs down to items like Bob Dylan and Eric Clapton if you don't like them and a thumbs up if you do.

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

The list includes all new blues 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 blues, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into blues 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 blues bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent blues bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best blues bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest blues 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 blues bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
