List Criteria: Upvote your favorite disco-era and nu-disco bands and artists

What separates disco bands from their pop music contemporaries is that their music is not only catchy and hip shaking, it's the sound has endured despite harsh criticism from haters. The best disco bands have become well-regarded by history. Disco artists were wildly popular during the 1970s and wherever you went, there was likely some sort of disco influence. Whether it was their flashy wardrobe, glittery personas or overall coolness, the best disco artists were seen and heard throughout the decade of excess. The best disco artists can still hear their songs played on radio today, which is quite an accomplishment.

So, that said, what are the best disco bands? Any list of disco artists must include the likes of the Bee Gees, Donna Summer and Chic to name a few. These are widely recognized as some of the biggest names in disco and the best artists in the genre. If you know disco, you'll want to have your voice heard and to ensure that this poll accurately reflects who are the greatest disco artists of all time.

Ultimately, it's up to you to determine who are the best disco artists. If you notice someone missing from this list, feel free to add them.  This list answers the questions "who are the best disco bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest disco 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 disco bands that you might've heard of. (59 items)
