Our top 10 Royal Blood songs list takes a look at an English rock and roll band that created a superpower house sound fueled by only two musicians. In similar fashion to what the White Stripes did and also the great band Japandroids, Royal Blood consists of a drummer and a bass player. However, this particular bassist named Mike Kerr creates the sound of both a bass and guitar through the use of special effects pedals and his talents as a musician. Together with drummer Ben Thatcher, Royal Blood has released some of the most exciting rock and roll music of the past ten years. With only three albums released it might seem too early to be doing at top 10 Royal Blood songs list, but nonetheless that’s one of the reasons we do these lists. It is to turn people onto some bands they might not know much about and help those groups develop and even bigger following in keeping rock and roll music alive, well and flourishing. Royal Blood is definitely a band worth checking out.
