The group hold the top three positions with 'Shine', 'Rule the World' and 'Patience', and also account for 25% of the top 20.
Music licensing company PPL compiled the list based on music played on TV, radio and online, along with tracks played in public places (such as gyms, ships and pubs).
Bee Gees, Oasis and Simply Red also feature in the list, along with The Stone Roses frontman Ian Brown.
However, there are no entries for The Stone Roses themselves, or the likes of Happy Mondays or New Order.
