Over the last 18 years, Biffy Clyro have grown into one of Britain's best guitar bands.

Their swooping alt-rock records have in recent years found success on both sides of the Atlantic, a sound that has evolved from the experimental prog of their earlier albums.

The trio have today unveiled brand-new track Instant History, the synthy-heavy lead single from their upcoming eighth studio album that could be their most radio-friendly moment yet.

Biffy Clyro - Simon Neil, James and Ben Johnston - have notched up 16 Top 40s on the Official Singles Chart, including three Top 10s. And they're a hugely successful albums act: six Top 10s, including two Number 1s. View Biffy Clyro's Official UK Chart history in full.

We count down the tio's Top 5 biggest songs, based on sales and streams combined, before revealing the fill Top 10 at the bottom of the page.

5. Black Chandelier
Released: 2013
Official Chart peak: 14
Chart sales: 179,000

The lead single from the band's sixth and first Number 1 album Opposites, Black Chandelier is one of Biffy's more straightfoward songs despite its subject matter. It was once described by Simon as an "anti-love song", adding: "It's kind of a downbeat look at love and what it demands of you as a person." In an interview with NME he also suggested the song was about the recent strain on his marriage due to his wife suffering two miscarriages.



4. The Captain
Released: 2009
Official Chart peak: 17
Chart sales: 208,000

The third single from the band's Only Revolutions album is a brassy, stadium-sized anthem with a big pop chorus that would set the tone for their future records. The single was released with the B-Side Help Me Become The Captain - an early, less-polished version of the song that had been recorded a few years earlier. The video, which depicts Simon as a prisoner on a pirate ship, was a big draw, winning best video at the NME and Kerrang! Awards.



3. Bubbles
Released: 2009
Official Chart peak: 34
Chart sales: 347,000

The band's fifth spin-off from Only Revolutions may have been the lowest-charting single from the record, but it holds up as one of their most popular today. It's sparky, almost Kings Of Leon-esque sound is in part thanks to Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age who provides additional lead guitar.



2. Mountains
Released: 2008
Official Chart peak: 5
Chart sales: 453,000

Mountains, Biffy Clyro's highest charting single, wasn't originally attached to an album when it was released - the band were eager to keep up momentum from their recent Puzzle album but didn't want to wait the usual year-between-albums cycle. Originally titled Teeth and Moutains, this rock epic is about Neil's growing confidence as a songwriter and, fittingly, became their first Top 10.



1. Many of Horror
Released: 2010
Official Chart peak: 8
Chart sales: 670,000

Described by many as the perfect rock ballad, Many Of Horror - renamed Many Of Horror (When We Collide) for is single release - reached a respectable Number 20 in January 2010. By the end of the year it was a Top 10 hit thanks to X Factor winner Matt Cardle releasing a cover as his winner's single; fans of the Biffy original set up a campaign to get it to Number 1 over Cardle. It remains a popular song to soundtrack dramatic TV moments, and as such ranks as the band's biggest song overeall, with 670,000 chart sales including 31.5 million streams.
