62Jessie JJessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.
63Wolfgang Amadeus MozartWolfgang Amadeus Mozart, baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era, born in Salzburg.

Why is Taylor Swift higher than Mozart on this list? Mozart deserves a better ranking than this because his music is more sophisticated and way better than Taylor Swift's music due to the creativity and hard work he put in into his symphonies. Taylor Swift, on the other hand, "makes" nothing but half-assed mass produced songs that has no creativity, thought, or hard work put into it.

Classical Music Is Never Appreciated. - 12cc

Because CLEARLY Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, One Direction, etc. are all better than Mozart. If they prove me right and compose 4 Seasons, I will retract this comment.

Classical music should never be put in a list with modern music, I'm sorry but it just doesn't WORK!

66John LennonJohn 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

Beethoven all by himself is worth more to music than all the rappers who ever existed.

68Dr. DreAndre 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.

73Meghan Trainor

These 2 Are Very Different. Get it Together People - 12cc

77Daft PunkDaft 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
