Best Mod Bands/Artists

in the 1950s and 1960s, mod culture dominated most of what was going on in the UK in terms of culture. Mods were hip and cool, and it was reflected in the trend setting fashion and music to come from that time period. Though originally named after those who listened to modern jazz, mod bands took elements of that, R&B and soul to form a subculture of rock music that became wildly popular during their heyday. The best mod bands are some of the most well known rock bands in music history. The movement was such a big deal in London that it spawned the Mod revival, a period where 

So, what are the best mod bands? The Who were one of the bands at the forefront of the mod movement. Their original slogan of maximum R&B and their original logo were hallmarks of the mod culture. Their music fused garage rock, classic R&B and modern rock music of the time and set a template for mod bands in the future. During the mod revival, The Jam, fronted by Paul Weller, became known as one of the best mod bands. Their songs and fashion sense replicated what made the mod movement so popular in England in the first place. Though close to punk rock, The Jam's sound consisted - like early Who - R&B, beat music, psychedelic rock and soul. 

This is the list of the best mod bands.
