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

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

This list includes New Order, Kylie Minogue and more. Vote for the best artists on the list to see them rise to the top. The fun of voting on multiple artists is that you get to make choices like "do I like Gioia Bruno more than Donna Summer?"

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

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

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