I don't think Madonna will be played in 50+ years. I'm a teen and I never heard 1 of her songs. I'm pretty sure my classmates don't listen to her either just saying'.

The most iconic and famous female singer in the world. Young uneducated kids may say whatever they want...Madonna will be popular in 100 and 200 years. Deal with it, little haters because you can't change it!

Madonna paved the way for other female vocalists and is very influential. Where Madonna led, others followed. - Redhairkid

Nobody cares now. Don't count on her achieving "classic" status 50 years on.

The sound of a generation, a decade, and maybe even a century. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

25Eric ClaptonEric Patrick Clapton is an English rock and blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.

Only slightly less gifted than such barely-human figures as Hendrix or Mozart, Clapton combined extreme musicianship and love of playing, along with the ability to put his emotions "out there" in a way that could reach people like few others in history.

The only THREE TIME inductee into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame, as a member of two different bands, plus as a solo act. He's a musical chameleon who manages to still stay true to his roots.

People are always going to sing along to Bohemian Rhapsody! - TwitchandVinegar

27Kendrick Lamar

Kendrick's albums sound like they could be released during any time period and never feel dated. His projects are lyrically deep, thought-provoking, and don't try to chase trends. - Zach808
