Name the 50 bands

Bored? Counting down the hours until you clock off? Then why not have a go at this challenge.

In the picture there are 50 band names, all you have to do is guess them...simples

(apologies if someone has already put this on EF, my search came up empty)

I'll get you started with one; Gorillaz
