This list of the top dancehall bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Dancehall 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 dancehall bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest dancehall bands of all time, since the most famous dancehall artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best dancehall music.

If they're near the top of the best dancehall artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top dancehall bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the dancehall band names themselves.

The list you're viewing contains items like Rihanna and M.I.A.. Help out your favorites on this list by upvoting them. What's better, Diplo or Busta Rhymes?

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

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

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