Bridging genres from jazz, rock to classical, creating rocks first double album, rocks first concept album, Frank Zappa and his bands have to be up there with the greatest

This list is complete bull, 10 percent actual talent and the rest is just a popularity contest.

Their leader Phil Lynott was composer or co-composer of almost all of the band's songs, and the first black Irishman to achieve commercial success in the field of rock music.

127Ozzy OsbourneJohn Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath more.

Ozzy Osbourne should be at least in the top ten, maybe top five. He's got a unique and distinctive voice, and even after leaving Black Sabbath, he's still done some amazing music. Ozzy is the Godfather of Heavy Metal and one of the greatest and most influential singers/musicians who ever lived. Ozzy forever!

Since Black Sabbath only made it at 44 (in my opinion should have place number 1) it isn't surprising that Ozzy is really far behind... The hell is wrong with you guys, the prince of darkness HERE! Ozzy is amazing and has a voice many fail to copy, his melodies and lyrics are amazing! Long live Ozzy Osbourne

128AerosmithAerosmith is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as "the Bad Boys from Boston" and "America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band".

Aerosmith needs more credit. They have so many great albums/hits and I LOVE them. Steven Tyler has an amazing voice and all members are great at what they do. I saw Aerosmith once and I had a VERY good time. Aerosmith is a rock legend!
