Beethoven all by himself is worth more to music than all the rappers who ever existed.
I love the banging tune he released last year it was sickV 2 Comments
One of the best of our generation, but they aren't as great as everyone think
So glad to see them here. Love them! So talented!
Why is this higher than David Bowie?V 1 Comment
Out of the many reggae artists out there, the greatest, and most famous would be Bob Marley. Marley is the best of his kind, writing classics such as "Buffalo Soldier", "I Shot the Sheriff", and "Three Little Birds" - camp0112
He is so amazing, and he knows what it is like to live without a microwave, and an oven. He also preached one love, and fought against descrimination, and did die a pretty poor man. Please don't even write justin beiber's name in the same sentence with his name in it. He is absolutely great, and has the best quotes
35. Seriously? How is Eminem higher than him? 4 decades and his music is still probably the most iconic ever. I still can't believe he is 35.
Bob Marley the best and famous than all list artists. Everyone knows Bob Marley.V 7 Comments
39! ARE YOU SERIOUS! Maiden have been up there for nearly 40 years. If people think the beatles are the best, you need to understand the complicated music is EPIC! Not just like the beatles where they played a basic tune. IRON MAIDEN FOREVER
List is a big bad joke because Iron Maiden is at 43V 2 Comments
Are you actually kidding me?
Coldplay, who said themselves 'we are a version of Radiohead' are higher? Let alone all the other rubbish like My Chemical Romance and OneRepublic... I usually respect the people of this website but... come on. OK Computer, Kid A, The Bends and In Rainbows, all some of the most critically acclaimed and best albums of all time, and their other albums like Amnesiac and A Moon Shaped Pool are alone better than half the artists above this.
Why is this so much down below? I know it's everyone's opinion, but come one!
Pink. Really. Ahead of this. The Beatles is already blasphemy, but Pink. I can't even. You people have no taste. I don't feel anger, only pity. - MikaBeeWall
WAY too low. Only rivals? Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan, Bowie, Floyd, Tull, The Roots, Nas And SpringsteenV 10 Comments
One of the most talented female singers ever! Period!
She should definitely be higher, at least in the top 20
A talented singer, deserves to be higher up on the list
She is dam should be next to EminemV 1 Comment
Of all time Imagine Dragons might be top 200 but they are lots of better artists. This is definitely too high people should listen to more music.
They have 5 times as many great songs as what they have on the radio.
I love imagine dragons just as much as the rest of you, but I'm not gonna say their the greatest of all time. - RecklessGreed
Demons, On Top of the World, Radioactive, It's Time, all ONE ALBUM. THAT'S AWESOMEV 3 Comments
Actually the different albums are so diverse!
The Mona Lisa = Art
The Ballad of Mona Lisa = Music
Panic! at the Disco = Art Musicians
THE TRUTH? Listen to Bob Dylan, David Bowie & Lou Reed if you want the real TRUTH
He sings about the truth and that's what we want to hear
His song I see fire is absolutely amazing!V 3 Comments
This is an outrage that the Beach Boys are so low, they belong among the top five. the Beach Boys Vocal Harmonies are among the Best in the World, Though they did not have great sales during the late Sixties and Seventies, They're Albums Pets Sounds (1966), Surf's up (1971), Sunflower (1970), Wild honey (1967), Smiley Smile (1967), and many others are some of the best psychedelic/Baroque rock/pop music, I suggest people listen to these albums. Pets Sounds in My opinion, is the greatest album of All time, and it raised the bar for Pop Music forever, and I think that it has never been surpassed, I have never liked Sgt Pepper, though I have listened to it many times, but it just never got me. It just wasn't my taste. SMiLE is a great album one of the greatest, they're music is a credit to America. In my list of Greatest Artists, The Beach boys and the Beatles are my Top 2, and I think they equally deserve the recognition. This is my opinion, but I hope some people agree.
I didn't come to this list expecting The Beatles to be ranked anything below first (though I don't think they merit a ranking of anything above about 1,000th), but The Beach Boys stand as the figurehead of 60's psychedelic music; Pet Sounds is incredibly innovative and the like, as well as a truly beautiful, nostalgic experience; SMiLE contains the greatest music ever recorded, among Beethoven's Ninth and Pachelbel's Canon; an unrelenting, moving, and, most especially, fun insight into the mind of an insane genius. Their music is the finest in creation.
During the British Invasion, this band was of the few American bands to compete with the Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, etc. They did write surf, but even wrote melodic, harmonic, songs and ballads. One album that demonstrated this was Pet Sounds, an album only to be topped by the all-mighty Sgt. Pepper's album. - camp0112
Although their music wasn't that original, The Beach Boys have created the most familiar tunes today. Their songs inspired Paul McCartney to write The Beatles' "Back in the USSR. "V 3 Comments
She should be more creative in her music. All she ever sings about are break ups and constantly comparing herself to popular people. Her music should have a wider variety of themes to it.
Bland and boring. Her songs compared to millions of other artists songs no big deal. No deep message for humanity here and has not had a song with such a deep impact on humanity really. Why then should she be on this list. Oh yes her songs are so monument over such songs as Imagine by John Lennon or 1000's songs of that caliber, NOT. Not impressed by her at all, sorry. HO Hum!
Inspiration for what? And why should kids listen to her lyrics. Relationships and breakups. Excuse me kids should not relate to this. Your to young to even know what relationships of the type she sings about and breakups. You don't fool me your still kids! Guess that's why some do find her a bit juvenile all together.
Taylor Swift is very uncreative at her music. ALL of her songs are about her exes. It means that she's a lazy song-writer because she can't found an idea for a song. - guitarV 18 Comments
What's this? Ariana? Miley? Selena? Demi? They are all no-talent pop starlets who get outclassed by almost everyone in at least one way. - WonkeyDude98
So many trash artists above good artists and good bands. For example: Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Kraftwerk, Motorhead, and many more. Pantera inspired Linkin Park and Linkin Park is miles higher. What a sad world. - Powerfultekin
Higher than David Bowie? What a joke
Definitely shouldn't be on any greatest artists list. Even if it top 1000 she shouldn't be there.
Deserves to be higher up on the list.V 16 Comments
I don't really have any other reason to vote for this other than they're, in my opinion, the greatest band that has every lived.
The biggest band EVER! Unique Bono's vocal, Edge's guitar, Adam's bass and Larry's drums. Absolutely magnificent.
Man classical rock for 40 years should be way above 35V 5 Comments
She's a great person and I like her music, but she does NOT compare to anyone in the top 10s or even 20s.
She's stayed strong through everything life has thrown at her and we should all respect that right?
SHE IS SO STRONG CONSIDERING WHAT SHE'S BEEN THROUGH AND I LOVE HER VOICE AND HER SONGS AND DEFINITELY HER NEW ALBUM. - 102501EMMAV 1 Comment
He is the most underrated musician ever... Period!
He is the real guitar God---His works with Peppers are just awesome...
Don't believe me---you gotta try Scar Tissue, Snow, Californication... List goes on
But this is him as a solo artists not with the band. So mention his solo works. - Powerfultekin
5SOS is bland, makes cliched music, and is overrated. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes
So... putting 5SOS before Deep Purple & Ray Charles?
One of my absolute favorite bands ever!V 3 Comments
She should be way further than thisV 1 Comment
People are sick this must be in top 10
50? Should be at least 5, these guys are awesome. - GREYBOYY
Black Sabbath is awesome! They're one of the bands that practically inspired many of the bands we have today. They deserve so much more credit. Long live Black Sabbath!
Black Sabbath created metal! Why are they ranked 61! should be at least top 20!
Why is this at 120? it should be way higher
Why is one direction above this?!V 1 Comment
