I hate dubstep, and skrillex is the reason why.

Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites is the best song! - JDagger500

How the heck is Skrillex not at least in the top 20?

Justin Beiber above slayer?! This list is jacked up

83Fall Out BoyFall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

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.

89Ke$haKesha 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

So sad. Pantera is one reason why Linkin Park exists yet Linkin Park is miles higher. Also why is Judas Priest so low? - Powerfultekin

Dubstep is the worst, and this is why I hate this genre

Progressive house is king, and deadmau5 is king of progressive house.

Deadmau5 is the best electronic music producer!

The band's ...read more.

I don't like to criticise peoples opinion, but it's hard not to when the band that wrote songs like livin' on a prayer, always, it's my life and other big hits including 4 billboard hot 100 no. 1 hits isn't even on the first page (hopefully when you are reading it Bon Jovi will be in the top 20 or something). It is also confusing because people have voted them and their songs very high on other lists, including livin' on a prayer at the top of the best 80s songs list. BON JOVI FANS, DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE FOR THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD.

Really 216 place! In my opinion Bon Jovi most be in the top tens
