Best Music Legends in The Worldxdogg
The Top TenXW
Michael Jackson. Michael is a LEGEND! He started when he was just 5 in the Jackson 5. My favorite song by him is well, don't ask me that. They're all so good. Michael was such a lovely guy, so kind-hearted, generous and loving to all. He gave 300+million dollars to charities and welcomed disadvantages kids to come and spend time with him at Neverland. He was overall, a legend. And I will always think that. I don't care about what the haters say because they obviously have their heads stuck up their rear if they couldn't see how amazing he was. All he wanted to do was spread love, peace and hope around the world, tried to change his ways to make the world better. His songs were AMAZING and they will always be remembered. His dancing was breathtaking, I wish he hadn't left us, but in a way he hasn't. Because his spirit will forever live on in everyone's hearts and he can look down on us and laugh and enjoy watching us respecting him for once. Joe Jackson (Michael's father) said: ...more
MJ THE KING FOREVER... He will be the king for ever... MJ is the true man who knew his music and knew how to heal the world... It was all from his heart... Love you Michael...
He's fine and he's amazing and generous. And he is a great father to his children I believe that he worked hard to make his dream a success and everybody loved him. I also believe that if he feels lonely he has us and if he feels sad he has us and if he feels unloved he has us. I have come to believe that if we feel lonely sad or unloved we have him also and since he is gone he will be dearly missed we have him in our hearts rip Michael Jackson you have come down in history
#1 without a doubtV122 Comments
I can't help myself when it comes to Queen's music. Even though it may not matter, the look of Queen was extraordinary. The music was 101% better than that. Hit songs and songs that go unnoticed by Queen are spectacular in my opinion. These songs seem to be thought out by their writers (basically the whole band). I feel as though everyone who contributed to these masterpieces besides Freddie go unrecognized. Freddie should really be #1, but hey I guess we (the fans) will just have to settle. Great List!
The definition of awesome = Freddie Mercury
The definition of singing = Freddie Mercury
Freddie Mercury was the best ever! I'm a tutor for a little kid right now. I get 15.00 bucks a week. And I already know what I'm gonna buy. A shirt with Freddie Mercury on the front, and I'm gonna wear it everyday. Every 3 weeks I'll buy another shirt. I can't wait!
No Lie, all four of my children are named after the whole band (Freddie Mercury/Roger Taylor/Brian May/John Deacon-first and middle name respectively! )
The best stage presence paired with musical talent I have ever seen be it live, recorded, alive or dead. Brilliant.V11 Comments
MADONNA, The most famous woman in the world. For over 30 years she has constantly made great music, videos, fashion and art that has become legendary. She has Re-invented herself, her music and her look with every new album.
Now, aged 55, she continues to make music (such as her last album MDNA which topped over 40 charts and broke an iTunes pre-order record), She continuous to make groundbreaking and yes, controversial videos for example her $1.5 million Give me all your luvin and continues to make great singles which still top many charts.
Over the past 30 years Madonna has become the Queen of Pop, the best selling female artist in history with over 300 million record sales and the most successful female entertainer EVER. It seems Madonna just doesn't stop getting bigger.
She has become a legend in the industry for breaking cultural and ethical taboos in the 80's and 90's, her driving force and determination has inspired almost all of today's pop stars. Madonna ...more
She's the queen, the 'only' queen of the universe. She changed the music industry in 80's, 90's, 00's, and she's still changing it. Come on all the 'others' have disappeared now, but she's still making amazing music and everybody all around the world still adores her. She deserves being top even for Like A Prayer video! It changed the whole world!
There is only ONE Queen.. And I voted for her!
There never has, nor will there ever be anyone remotely like this woman. She has broken boundaries, stood up for gay rights, when it wasn't the cool thing to do. Her music tells the story of her and what she believes in.
A true visionary, Madonna is truly the greatest female music artist of all time. She's took risks like no other she's outsmarted everybody in the music business a true class act. Artistic, creative & intelligent. She is the ultimate trailblazer in music. A all round great starV10 Comments
I agree! Elvis is #1. Still today 2012, elvis is the most imitated artist all over the world. Elvis has the BIGGEST fan base ever to be seen. After 35 years since the king left our planet, people still honor the anniversary of his death. Who can ever forget this magnificent and humble man, No one that's who...
For me no-one will ever top the legend that is Elvis, I mean I was not even born when he died but ever since I first heard his voice I have become hooked on the magic of his voice and classic songs. Mr Presley I salute you x
Elvis Presley will never be anything less than #1 he is a legend & his music will be carried on within many generations, my parents grew up with his music as did myself & my children, my brothers children, know all the words to his songs & they are only 14, 5 & 2. I have 1 word to describe Elvis & that is AWESOME!

The Beatles gave a new pattern of music we hear nowadays. They broke the wall between the old and new periods of pop music industries. They established new vocals in a very natural way of singing, new music sounds, new looks as well as new ideas of song writing. They always tried out a lot of new experiments during the rehearsals and found out many particular details of making a unique performance session until the best recording in the studio. Their music is appreciated by every class of people from kings to beggars. Beatlesmusic audience are never classified but unified as one who just want to hear good music of great harmonies, nice melodies and lively performances. Besides, they are good models of hard-working musicians with great determinations to fulfill all the tasks they committed. I believe The Beatles are the only special combination of pop group that will never happen again in the pop history. It is a God's will to send them on earth to create music for the world. They ...more
The Beatles have sold MORE recordings ALL TIME than any other artist EVER.
Even 40 years after they broke up, The Beatles are still the second-best selling artist since the year 2000!
Many artists changed the world of music; only the Beatles changed the WORLD.
Before The Beatles, the world was about old people; after The Beatles, the world was about young people... That can only happen ONCE.
Ask any artist on this list- they will tell you that NOBODY matches up with The Beatles.
Michael Jackson is nothing compared to the Beatles. I mean, come on its the Beatles! The greatest musical act of all time. They changed the world forever. And their music is eternal! The Beatles are the greatest legends that have ever existed. THE BEATLES ARE THE GREATEST AND THE BEST SELLING EVER.
The Beatles are the greatest artists since music started nobody has sold more music or albums they are the kings of music than elvis Presley number 2 of all timeV16 Comments
Whitney was an successful artist, awarded singer, best selling artist...
The differences of whitney to another is being a greatest singer of all time, that's why she acclaim the name the voice, her voice like no other, the way she deliver the song with heartfelt voice, that's why I like her she lost her voice, but she's still stand for it to fight... In her latest album I look to you... Nothing can sing in her own way, and her own way to deliver a song... A great artist
I love her and she had a one of a kind voice she was beautiful black woman and had lots to live for and I know she wouldn't want people to cry because shes with her best friend her father and his name is god. I love you whitney.R.I.P. there will never be another you or minnie riperton. Also I'm 11 years old and writing this responce because I feel so much for her and her family. I pray her family will be strong and get through this tragety of this legend daughter and mother. Love you whitney. Go sing for the lord. And I love all of her music and hope shes in glory praising god for giving her life and praying that her mother and daughter will be strong and her family
R.I. P whitney love ya
My favorite singer since a child. I have always been a fan and I was heart broken when her soul was laid to rest. I loved her talent and all of her music. She had a unique voice and put in a lot of hard work to become the star she was. Rest in peace Whitney Houston. I'll always be a fan.
She is beautiful and really good at singingV14 Comments
Mariah. She has the voice of an ANGEL! There is NOBODY in the music industry who can sing like her! Shes sold more records than any female artist in music history/ any solo artist. She was the voice of the 90's and the fact that she has 18 number one hits, 260 million records sold worldwide, and her amazing whistle register are just a few reasons why she is the greatest legend/ diva and much much more. Not to mention shes a great human being and soul.
The voice of the 90's. Her vocal talent is indisputable. Her writing abilities are extraordinary. 18 number ones. 200 Million album sales. And a singing ability that inspired every single modern female artist, along with Whitney & Celine they are the holy trinity of female vocalist.
A Living Legend Since the beginning of her career in the 90s. She has more number one hits than any other solo artist. The most amazing voice in history. She brought R&B Music to the world and changed the music industry with her amazing music.
Her musicality is unparalleled. She literally breathes with it. You can't imagine a single woman who has gone through everything and yet succeeds until now. She's a legend.V12 Comments
his music is still inspiring the world should be No. 1
He was believing in Rastafari. No other artist had the same feeling or was fighting for so much like he did. His music is spread all over the world. Nesta had some thing special!
Although M.J. is the King of Pop I believe this man should be No. 1 there was no one like him and no other artist fighting for a greater cuase. Everything he did was for the people no matter what race. Tell me how do you get shot one day and still perform a free concert the same day. I think Bob Marley should be #1
Best songs ever!V27 Comments
Why would it be weird that his music is still popular today? (: He made masterpieces. He should be much higher, in my humble opinion. I can't believe Mariah Carey is higher than Mozart.
May seem weird but his music is still quite popular today.V2 Comments
The best rapper of all time and a revolutionary man. This is what makes him stand out. He transcended his own genre of hip-hop, and advanced it to the next artistic level. Tupacs music is heard all over the world, even in third world villages and slums. The music he created was simply beautiful beyond words. He had a way with lyrics that told a story from multiple levels of understanding, he was truly genius. The media and Hollywood try to downplay him and his "thug image". But if you truly understand him, you will recognize him as the real voice of the young generation. He was out to make the world a better place, and achieved this through his musical aspirations. Simply a musical legend whether you like hip-hop or not.
He has sold so many albums and had a very successful acting career, and was actually pretty good! Best Rapper of all time, lyrically was unbeatable. If rapping was boxing he would be Muhammad Ali!
Hail Mary! Tupac is a great rapper who was a legend, and deserves to be on the top 10, all his songs had great feeling and emotion, and I feet he is one of a kind.
The best rapper everV19 Comments
British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran is a notoriously nice guy He donated his Grammy wardrobe to charity, guest starred on Sesame Street and secured himself a position in Taylor Swift's friend zone. In numbers, too, Sheeran's career is booming. His debut album, +, sold one million copies in six months in the U.K. alone, and his sophomore effort, x, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. His songs come from the heart and he is so crazy talented.
He wrote some of the best pop hooks in the world and no one pays him any credit! Definitely a legend unto himself.
King of Music! Singer, songwriter, arranger, composer, producer, dancer, choreographer, director, guitarist, drummer, piannist, bassist, entertainer, and the list goes on! No one can do that not even Michael "overrated" Jackson...
The only artist to be awarded top international artist over multiple decades.V1 Comment
Britney has more influence in the pop industry. She has 6 world records which the others do not. Britney has also, been a major driving force, along with Madonna and MJ, to make Pop music what it is today. Like Elvis was for Rock=n=Roll.
What? Britney Spears is #43? This poll is ridiculous. Evanescence is before Britney? A rock band in a pop poll? This is stupid poll. Britney is the Queen of Pop and has slayed the music charts since 1998.
I'm not gonna waste my breath on this stupid poll.
SHES THE PRINCES OF POP, AND THE BEST PERFORMER. Every song that she releases is a hit
One word to describe her: ICONICV7 Comments
Badass and tight rhythm section.
Amazing singer and songwriter.
Legendary rhythm guitar player
Came up with a new and fresh sound and style
Oh come on! Nirvana barely in the top 50?! So you telling me that Westlife, Celion Dion, Britney Spears, JUSTIN BEAVER are more legandary artists than Nirvana? I don't think so - Danielsun182
They weren't just musical geniuses they also spoke up against racism, sexism and homophobia which can only influence people in the best way making their fans aware of social problems.
The way that Kurt compared grunge music to nirvana (noun
(in Buddhism) a transcendent state in which there is neither suffering, desire, nor sense of self) is beautiful.
Kurt cobain I really admire you!V13 Comments
People forget that classical music is music to it seems. Beethoven is not only a genius, but a pioneer. Try to make music when your deaf and still make some of the most complex and beautiful songs ever made.V1 Comment
She's goddess saraswati... Her voice is so divine. Me being a non Indian, I'm listening to her sings since years... I don't know why but it gives me motherly love, friendly support and blessings... The way she sings.. She rules my heart... Long live my favourite singer
Gift of God to this world. Even very complex songs are very simple to her. Very down to earth person. You will never find such a gem any where else in this planet(male/female)V1 Comment
You need to get an education in music if you don't know who these underrated legends are. Songs like "Light my Fire", "L.A. woman", "The End", "Riders on the Storm" etc have cemented their legacy as one of the all time greats
Music that was made nearly 50 years ago still played and sold today. But what's most amazing is it sounds as great and as fresh today as all those years ago. It will be the same for the coming 50 years.V1 Comment
Oh my god! Oh my god! Eminem and 2pac are good. Britney Spears, Beyonce and Rhianna not so much. But Pink Floyd can never be compared to them. They are not even in the sane league. They deserve to be in the top three. Never No 21. They are surely better then Madonna. This list is not proper. They are way better than this.V1 Comment
The best female performer to ever live. This is enough receipt. we can of course mention Single Ladies for its cultural impact and her long list of classics from her Destiny's Child days to Love On Top. Being apart of the best selling girl group of all time. Her signature sound incoporating go go elements and her unique "rap-singing" style. Her famous relationship with JAY Z and her already famous daughter that broke twitter records before coming to life. and of course 9 #1s that spent 40 weeks @ #1.
This philanthropist, singer/songwriter, producer, dancer, and actress has earned her place in music as an icon due to restless work behind the scenes. She nitpicks every aspect of her product whether it's a documentary, video, or a fragrance until it's PERFECT. She loves her craft and there's NO STOPPING BEYONCE KNOWLES-CARTER.
Such a beauty, love Running and yet she can sing and Dance Perfectly and yet still sing better than other pop artists like TAYLOR SWIFT which is terrible live.
I think she should have been at least in the top 10V7 Comments
This guy speaks the truth and s one of the best artists to come out of england. Incredible
I Love James Brown he inspired Michael Jackson to dance and sing.
How is he not top ten? JB is a goat people. I hereby pronounce JB, the famous flame, the funkiest man of all! Laugh out loud Like if you think jokenwas funny y'allV1 Comment
