Top 10: Songs Performed by Siblings

It’s not surprising that talent (or the complete lack of, as in my case) runs in families. But what I do think surprising is the number of siblings who can actually stand to be around each other so much to have a band. I love my siblings but if I had to spend more than six hours a day for a period longer than three weeks with any of them, we’d probably all go insane. [And I do think that that’s actually a rather high tolerance level.]

Anyways, there are quite a few bands out there with at least two siblings in them. So, let’s have a quick rundown.

[Just a quick note: I left out The Kinks, because I have posted so much about them already. Just note that they should actually be included on this list.]

10. Creedence Clearwater RevivalBad Moon Rising

Creedence Clearwater Revival is another great 60s band, though in my experience, people know the songs, not the band.

Siblings: John and Tom Fogerty

9. The CorrsBreathless

Very nice, very folksy Irish music. Breathless was their biggest hit.

Siblings: All of them

8. 30 Seconds to MarsThe Story

Emo at its finest. Definitely. [Isn’t it unfair that some people seem to be able to do everything? Sing, act, paint their eyes?]

Siblings: Jared and Shannon Leto

7. Bee GeesHow Deep Is Your Love?

No, that song isn’t by Take That originally. But I’m sure you knew that already.

Siblings: All of them

6. INXS – By My Side

INXS has many g00d songs, it’s hard to pick just one. But By My Side is probably my favourite.

Siblings: Andrew, Jon and Tim Farriss

5. JetAre You Gonna Be My Girl

Perfect song to crazily jump around to.

Siblings: Nic and Chris Cester

4. The CranberriesZombie

Beautiful song, great political message – what more could you want?

Siblings: Noel and Mike Hogan

3. Kings of LeonUse Somebody

Use Somebody is just the latest in a series of great songs. Strongly recommended.

Siblings: Nathan, Caleb and Jared Followill (plus cousin Matthew Followill)

2. RadioheadKarma Police

I don’t think I need to say anything about Radiohead, do I?

Siblings: Jonny and Colin Greenwood

1. OasisWonderwall

I usually don’t like Oasis, but Wonderwall? I really, really love Wonderwall.

Siblings: Liam and Noel Gallagher

  1. I really like the cranberries. My favorite song is Everything I said (“’cause if I died tonight would you hold my hand, would you understand…”)

    Didn’t know about any of the bands (except for the Bee Gees) consisted of siblings. I thought the Kelly family was something specially special because of that… but it seems to be rather average.

    • The Cranberries are absolutely great. I love them, too.

      And don’t worry – The Kelly Family are still very special. Very, very special.

      [I shudder to think that I used to be a fan…]
