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

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

Examples include M.I.A. and Lily Allen. UK grime groups and American grime groups are both included on this list. Clicking a 'thumbs up' next to the names of artists that are in the grime genre will move them up the list. This list includes artists like Chase & Status and Lady Sovereign so you have a lot of choices to vote on.

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

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

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

Don't forget to share this list on your social networks so that more great artists can hit the top ranks. (100 items)
