To quote from Don't Stand So Close; "He starts to shake and cough, just like the old man in that book by Navakov." Really Sting? He is an ex English teacher, I think you'll find better work from the worst of his pupils! Still quite like the band though.

Compilations shouldn't be allowed in the 20 most rated songs of a band, when you have four, "Every Breathe You Take" in the ratings...

I think Sting And The Police have twenty odd good singles and a good album but they are more about the singles. Most of their singles have stood the test of time.

As for The Real Truth... This is purely based on albums, not an overall package of live, song writing, importance, influence et cetera. Obviously not enough people rate their albums now, so get over it!

3 extra terrestres , voilà ce que je retiens de ce groupe de légende pour moi . Un concert en plein air au Touquet pour confirmer la maitrise de leur art (quel batteur...) . Et des albums sublimes dans cette fin des années 70 au moment de l'explosion du punk.

They are more intimate and skillfull than most people think of, even thou they albums cleary have songs that stand out from the rest. Great fusion of punk and reggae based music with similar styles, they are instantly recognisable and really deserve to be in the top 100 of any artist poll.

The Police are not more important than The Beatles. I am not such a raging homer that I would suggest such things. It IS fun to debate, but I have to include truth. Everybody has their own favorite. Being intellectually honest tells me that Arctic Monkeys have ABSOLUTELY NO BUSINESS ranking higher than The Police in any category of historical importance. Fandom is one thing. Honesty is another.

The Police were the first New Wave band from Britian to conquer the American charts. They toured the East Coast BEFORE they had a US album release, proving to the other UK bands that they could tour America on the cheap and succeed. Stewart Copeland, aside from his influential polyrythmic drumming technique, helped to popularize not only Tama'a newly created Octobahn drums, but also worked with Paiste to help develop the splash cymbal in new ways. Andy Summers was a frontrunner in using echo, tape delay, and effects influencing guitar players such as The Edge. Sting was a master of songwriting structure and was part of a group of select singers that also played bass. They did much to help revolutionize the music industry. Think along those terms, and then think about the trajectory of alternative music throughout the 80's and 90's. Without The Police, the landscape would be much different. Because of the success of The Police, IRS Records was formed; thus providing the launching pad for R.E.M., The Go-Go's, Squeeze, and Oingo Boingo to name a few. IRS Records was formed by Miles Copeland, manager of The Police. Frontier Booking International (FBI) was formed by Ian Copeland, brother of Miles and Stewart Copeland. FBI was the premier booking and talent agency for acts such as The Cure, The B-52's, R.E.M., Nine Inch Nails, Morrissey, and Iggy Pop. IRS and FBI were able to form and flourish due to the success of The Police.

So you are telling me that Arcade Fire, Oasis, Coldplay, Muse, The Strokes, Neutral Milk Hotel, The Flaming Lips, The White Stroipes, My Bloody Valentine, Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Ros, Modest Mouse, Wilco, Kanye West, The National, Fleet Foxes, Blur, Animal Collective, Interpol, Bon Iver, Bjork, Sufjan Stevens, Eminem, Manis Street Preachers, Massive Attack, Belle & Sebastian, Gorillaz, and Porcupine Tree are all more historically important than The Police? You are intellectually dishonest. I can stuff the ballot box as well. The Police are significant in more ways that you can comprehend.

The Police should surely be ranked higher. They are an immortal band. Great singles, terrific albums, world class rhythm section, inventive classy guitarist, and an instantly recognizable sound. They were a supremely influential act for a time. The songs still kick.
