Northern Irish-Scottish alt-rock outfit, Snow Patrol, broke into the mainstream with their 2003 major-label debut, Final Straw, a collection of earnest tunes aligned with the sounds of contemporaries like Coldplay, Keane, and Travis. They followed with the success of 2006's Eyes Open - which featured the international hit single Chasing Cars - paving the way for the band's UK's Top Ten platinum efforts A Hundred Million Suns and Fallen Empires. After an extended six-year hiatus, during which time frontman Gary Lightbody worked as a songwriter for pop artists, the band returned with Wildness in 2018. It was announced by the PPL in 20019 that Chasing Cars was the most played song on UK radio of the 21st Centuryat that point.

Formed in Birmingham, England, in 1978, pop megastars Duran Duran are one of the most culturally influential and commercially successful bands of all time, topping the charts around the world over the past three decades and selling more than 100 million records worldwide. After acrimonious splits, Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes relaunched the band in the mid-90s and the band continued to be successful. 2003 saw the group reform with Simon Le Bon, John Taylor, Nick Rhodes and Roger Taylor, and the reaction proved their fan base is as huge as ever. The band has been honoured with multiple Grammy, BRIT, Ivor Novello, and MTV Video Music Lifetime Achievement Awards, as well as a 20th Century Style Icon award from the City of Milan. Tireless innovators, they are always at the vanguard of music, fashion, art, technology and film — a group with unique and everlasting appeal. Now a seemingly unstoppable force, with no fewer than five prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards under their belts, the four original members of Duran Duran are in a category with only a handful of other internationally acclaimed artists.
