This band saved my life! The first time I heard "You Found Me" I cried. Their songs have a powerful meaning. And Isaac Slade's voice is AMAZING. I never heard a band more beautiful than them

Why isn't this band higher on the list? How to save a life and Over my Head were huge hits back then!

Just some quality music, great voice, deep and meaningful lyrics. Waaay better than most of the artists above. Just sad to see such talent being so underrated.

23Demi Lovato

Aside from the charities she does, Demi is one of the best pop artists out there nowadays and she has the best vocals of her generation, regardless live or studio. Definitely underrated for a great singer like her.

Demi is the only talented singer to come out of 2000's Disney. The only one that doesn't use auto tune. I know that for a fact that she is very talented.

I loved Rocker Demi when she released Don't Forget and her Here We Go Again album! Not that I don't like her music now, though! :P

I love her she is my idol! Shes an inspiration!

Gwen is now pop, but she used to be ska punk. But she does have a great voice.

38Kelly Clarkson

10 years in the music industry and she is still on top, and unlike most artists out there her songs have actual meaning and are powerful and just amazing to listen to! This woman is wonderful singer and an incredible songwriter! By far the voice of our generation

Kelly is the best, I must say... Both sorrows n rocks r being exposed so good through her songs. She makes our eyes fill up with tears n also make us the rock... Its really great that both of these suits her voice just perfect... :-D
Maria Thomas. ;-)

Is this some kind of joke!? Kiss is hard rock, heavy metal, glam metal! Please tell me how they are pop rock. I'd love to know

They are a hard rock band not pop rock - zxm
