The Best Dub Artists and Musicians of All Time

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

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

The Clash and Snoop Dogg are included on this list along with many more. Help our your favorites by giving them a thumbs up. The fun of voting on multiple items is that you get to make choices like "do I like Sublime more than Christopher Mercer?"

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

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

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

You can change the order of the list by having your Facebook friends vote too. (161 items)
