Well, if you mean "ever" then it's a dead tie between Pink Floyd and The Who.
 
If you mean "nowadays" as in contemporary bands, then it's probably (not counting PT) Massive Attack.
 
I don't even care for Oceansize or Muse...although Radiohead is really good.

I went with the majority and voted for Radiohead.  Even though they have also done some substandard stuff and some stuff that is just plain wank, they still impress me with the their lateral thinking approach to music.
 
What I have heard from Muse ranges from mediocre to awful.
 
I haven't heard more than 2 or 3 tracks from Oceansize, but my impression was that they are a polished, well-produced, Progressive (note the capital 'P') group - but the songs did not excite me in any way.
 
----------------------
 
If the poll was "greatest British band EVER", the ones mentioned by other members in this thread would all be contenders, but in my mind it cones down to two: The Beatles and Genesis. For very different reasons of course.

I love both Oceansize and Radiohead a lot, and both are in my top3 bands/artists, but I have to say Oceansize.

About the list, Radiohead. Muse is the most famousy-mainstream BUT not even near of the truly greatest.

Floyd, Who, Crimson - if we're talking about bands overall. As for those available in the poll, Radiohead is the only one I like.
