Why is Muse under Justin Bieber and One Direction? - ThePwoperMuser101

Muse is The best alternative rock band!

62 The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City.

It's sad how this list doesn't rank artists in order of talent but instead of popularity, if it was in order of talent there is no doubt in my mind that the velvet underground as well as Simon and garfunkel would be hire, however this is not the case and this list seems to have been overrun by mediocre (in many cases poor) pop artists, it's a shame that my generation seem to struggle to discover music outside of the charts

Their music was amazing, listening to their album "The Velvet Underground & Nico" felt like listening to a philosopher speaking words of wisdom. If the Beatles are the kings of mainstream music, then these guys are definitely the kings of alternative music. - Mun

63 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40 .

John Lennon was included in the Beatles and Beatles are #1 and John Lennon made a huge contribution to the Beatles so he should also be near #1

How is John Lennon so low? He actually believed in writing music for peace, yet One Direction is higher?

The greatest songwriter of all time

64 Dr. Dre Dr. Dre Andre Romelle Young, better known by his stage name Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.

Dre invented gangster rap with NWA - without him modern rap wouldn't exist.

A talented rapper, one of my favourites, and arguably the greatest of all time, but shouldn't be this high to be honest. Consider that all the music acts that have actually "made it" number to probably tens of thousands.

Great artist! "Big green tractor" was a hit out in the burbs

The father of gangsta rap at 67! Why world why

They are the best, and not for nothing that and the BIGGEST BAND OF THE NEWS GIRL.

Day and Night is the best song ever! #coolest! - JDagger500

74 Daft Punk Daft Punk Daft Punk is a French electronic music duo consisting of producers Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.

I think they're the best all time because they have a ton of hits (get lucky, around the world, one more time) and they have used different genres in their songs from all the way from rock to disco. People only hate them because they've only heard get lucky, which is still great.

Dang it, I voted Gorillaz before I saw them! Anyways, how are they this low?! Synthesizer doesn't equal trash! - Donut

At least in the top 20, they are the greatest electronic artists

One of my favourite bands. Sure, they may not be the best but they aren't as bad as people say. There are many artists who are worse than them and don't get even half the hate this guys get!

Just the best sound in the industry, hands down.

80 Ke$ha Ke$ha Kesha was born in L.A and is American. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

*note that she is no longer called Ke$ha for the incident I'm about to cover below*

You know, I've said some really mean things about Kesha. How she's this noxious valley-girl who can barely sing and can only talk about drugs and partying.

How terrible of me to discount her longtime producer Dr. Luke. Not only was he the primary producer of Only (one of the worst songs ever instrumentally), he caused her mental trauma, forced excessive fasting because she looked "like a refrigerator", drugged her, and abused her.

He also prevented her from making more mature work than Tik Tok and BlahBlahBlah. To this day he still has control over her, which is a real shame because she has the potential to be amazing. - WonkeyDude98

One of the better music artists of today
