181NasNasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time . He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

Nas is my favorite artist of all time. He is actually godly. Get him to number 1 now. Illmatic, It Was Written, I Am..., Stillmatic, God's Son, The Lost Tapes and Life is Good. These are very good albums. He needs to be higher. Go Nasty Nas!

Nas being at only 195 and Bob Dylan not being higher than The Beatles pretty much proves that this list is a joke.

He needs to be way way Wayne higher

He made illmatic enough said

With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .

Michael Jackson is the king of pop. Elvis is the king of rock and roll. And Paul McCartney is the king of great catchy melodies.

I mean I can understand someone like Lady Gaga being at #125 but Paul McCartney?! That's when you know things are being rigged

How can people forget about him?! Not to mention... He was in the Beatles!

Deserves way higher

195Owl CityOwl City is an American electronica project created in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota; it is one of several projects by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young.

No music makes me happier than Owl City. Thank you Adam for making such fantastic songs!

Owl City is the best out there. His music is full of metaphoric lyrics and not all that great rhymes but in between his rhymes is amazing...until he sang with carly rae jepsen in good time that song wasnt as good

Ughh...Oasis is so overrated. I know this will probably make a ton of people mad, but have you heard the guy's voice? Wonderwall makes me cringe...the long notes...

200Lou Reed

Talking about song-writers, if you don't mention him, you're not a music lover. You don't like rock n roll. From Heroin to Sweet Jane, from The Kids to Metal Machine Music, he is better than Dylan. He cannot be beaten. Ed Sheeran talking about the truth? I don't think so. Probably that's because you haven't heard about Lou Reed. He wins on longevity, experimentation, music and almost everything you can consider from a musician. Even Adam Sandler sang one of his songs ;3
