Top Ten Most Innovative Music ArtistsNataly
The Top TenXW
Rock, Psychedelic music and art rock was invented by The Beatles, Alice Cooper-KISS-Ozzy Osbourne, etc. Were all influenced by The Beatles, the band were the first band to evolve as artists, have fans across the world that number in the billions, the first band to be iconic, legendary, innovative, groundbreaking, massivley influential and rule the world on commercial and artistic success-The Beatles were the first innovators and we would have NO MUSIC without The Beatles
There wouldn't be a modern pop sound without the Beatles. The only group from that time period who's sound could sound like today. Just listen to She Loves You or I want To Hold Your Hand.
Also, they were able to transform and do a complete 180 from their early '60's selves.
If want to hear innovation, just listen to the entire Sgt. Peppers Album. Game over.

All her romance songs would prove how chithra is best innovator
Chithra is best innovator for her songs
She has the most sweetest voice ever... I bet you
Only the beatles and Elvis presley had more influence on pop music, but no one was innovative
He was a cute and talented kid, but most of his adult act was a ripoff of James Brown and Jackie Wilson.
actually this list should have him in the top 10 position alone... no one can be compared to him
I knew he would be number one before I even read the list, simply, the greatest.V5 Comments
Brian Wilson was a musical and lyrical genius. Paul McCartney himself said so. (Don't quote me on that) - higgsboson2142
The combined fact that this pretends to be a list of the most innovative music artists, and that David Bowie is not in it, should be reason for all involved to hang their heads in relentless shame and ponder about the gradual decline of the internet, music culture, and society in general.V1 Comment
Acoustic & electric. Folk, country, Rock, blues, Traditional, R&B, Christian, Disco,... Several things which defy labels or genre... And Sinatra interpretations! - Billyv
They are unique and defined progressive & concept albums
Why is LP above one of the most innovative artists of ALL time? Without PF, most bands wouldn't be here today.
Profound influence on alternative rock...same with Iggy Pop and the Stooges
Their style is pretty much versatile, and combine elements of hip hop, rap, rock and metal. It innovated music of the 21st century.
They always do something different for each album.
So innavative, SO AWESOME, it's a shame their on the bottom of this list.V1 Comment
The best guitar lineup in history; Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page. They created the music that is known as hard rock to this very day.
Most of the innovations that are credited to Led Zeppelin were actually created first by Jimmy Page when he was in The Yardbirds.
Later, after some personnel changes and a minor name change to "The New Yardbirds", Jimmy Page changed the name of the band again... to Led Zeppelin.
Nobody can beat this awesome artist - very well respected
Robbie Williams is awesome and the best
How the heck is Freddie in the 21st spot? HE'S BELOW BEYONCE? - ImAKillerQueen
This list is supposed to be the innovative ones. And while Elvis isn't necessarily the best artist, he was the one who made rock music big. He opened the eyes of the world to rock, and rock is still a huge genre. To put it simply: No Elvis-No Beatles. So he should be waaay higher up. - Tweepster
Michael Jackson did funk, disco, and new jack swing with some rock and roll. The Beatles did rock, some psychedelic rock and baroque in Revolver. Madonna has done all of that plus Latin, country, folk, classical, dubstep, house, acid jazz, trip hop, techno, and pretty much every genre their is. Madonna went past songs about love and sang about religion, abortion, sexuality, and morals. Madonna is the best innovator of music and she will never lose her impact no matter how "old" she gets. Hail Queen Madge.
The women is smart. No doubt about it. Never seems to run out of ideas.
