Top Ten Artists That Are the Best at Their Genregemcloben
The Top Ten
The Princess of Classical Crossover. There is no one like her. - BobG
This young lady has the music in her. Music. - Trancas
Jackie is one of a kind!
She sucks and that's a fact. Even Ariana Grande is better and that's saying something. - NickelbackLinkinPark4EvaV 7 Comments
He's better then swift that's for sure!
For the first 10 years of his career, MJ was the Justin Bieber of his time; he was not even considered a serious artist until he teamed up with Quincy Jones for "Off the Wall". To have him, or anyone, ahead of the Beatles is a joke.
Does that mean that people were raving on TheTopTens about him back in the old days? - swrs1234
Pop stands for popular. MJ was the King of Pop. He should be #1
Runner up: the Beatles - gemclobenV 2 Comments
What kind of an idiot classified the Beatles as 60's pop? Probably the same kind of idiot who thinks they are any kind of runner-up to Michael Jackson.
Biggest-selling music act of all time.
What the hell? they're rock, psychedelic rock, they're more classic rock than pop - waldo
Damn, I love the Beatles. Well I wouldn't say love, just like. - EpicJakeV 1 Comment
Biggest solo artist of all time, and second-biggest seller, only The Beatles have sold more.
Originally called "The King of Rock and Roll", but most people just refer to him as "The King".
Runner up: chuck berry - gemcloben
Look up Chuck Berry. - 445956
Lets see whisky in the jar, for who the bell tomes, and sand man are all very good - thebounty
People will disagree on this but this is my pick - Sabbath
St anger and lulu may suck but load and reload are still metal you idiots. it piss me off when people hate a band cause they change
Black Sabbath is betetr - 445956
Amazing rapper but I think Kendrick Lamar is the best rapper. - DarkBoi-X
To this guy who said, that Eminem said that Tupac was the best rapper; he didn't. In his song "'Till I Collapse" he clearly mentions his list: "Reggie, Jay-Z, Tupac and Biggie, Andre from Outkast, Jada, Kurupt, Nas and then me." I disagree with his list, as he should be higher than that.
That's true, he really is the best rapper. - ShyChick
Like it or hate him, he thrusts hard rap - MaxBravoV 5 Comments
Queen is the best rock band periodt, no one can tell me otherwise.
The best rock band of all time.
I love Queen! Bohemian Rhapsody is one of my favourite songs and is also the one song I ask for when I do karaoke. Don't stop me now and I want to break free are also great songs and memorable too.
Runner up: the who - gemcloben
Beethoven was indeed amazing composer! He was very important in the transition from the light, Mozart-like Classical classical music to the more artistic, emotionally, expressive Romantic classical music, paving the way for later composers such as Chopin, Liszt, Bartok, Wagner, Mahler, Stravinsky, etc... His monumental symphonies and beautiful piano sonatas are some of the greatest classical music pieces ever, and his works have so much emotion and just plain awesomeness in them. Beethoven is the greatest Classical composer.
A great composer, possibly the greatest ever, but we have absolutely no idea how he was as a performer, which every other name here is based on.
Isn't he supposed to be the greatest.
I prefer vivaldi
I don't know how the hell this list makes any sense, because it's asking for the best artist in their respective genre, not the very best artist overall. So if I say Nirvana is the best at grunge because they're my favorite band, I'm basically saying that AC/DC isn't as good because it's not grunge. Nirvana is my favorite, but what if AC/DC is just as influential and iconic as Nirvana but in its own respective genre? And it's not just AC/DC, it's each artist on this list, whether I like them or not.
Definitely! Not to mention, alternative overall! They glamorized 90's music! People everywhere loved them! They're legends! Go Nirvana! - MontyPython
Not Grunge, Alice in Chains should be there - waldo
The best band ever. Never mind best metal band. - IronSabbathPriest
I like iron maiden. He makes good music - EpicJake
Kshmr is surely the best
One of the most integral electronics artist to the gerne ever. Not only did he innovate the genre but he also brought it to a more mainstream audience. I love deadmau5.
What the (Highway to) hell? - waldo
Runner up: guns n roses - gemcloben
This is what people call a master class (Wheel Of Time, Sacred Worlds, The Throne). - Metal_Treasure
Sabaton is better. - DarkBoi-X
I couldn't agree more. Several power metal bands are very good but Blind Guardian is the band with the stellar musicianship. - Metal_Treasure
I would say that Helloween and Manowar are better. - 445956
I disagree. For power metal, DragonForceV 2 Comments
I think they are most popular alternative band. I like The Killers even more than Nirvana. And if its pure "Alternative Rock". then I would choose Pearl Jam over them. Eddie Vedder has better voice than Kurt Cobain. And their lyrics are also better. - zxm
Nirvana is Grunge - Inart
Nirvana founded grunge not alternative
No, grunge was created by other bands, Nirvana only popularized it. - Metal_Treasure
I like bands like red hot chili peppers or green day more than nirvana in alternative rock - zxmV 2 Comments
Under pressure was his best
Velvet Underground? - waldo
Not even close in all honesty.
Fall Out Boy is one of the worst... things ever conceived. No way should they be on a "best" list for anything. Unless its best at sucking big time.
Love their work since their first album, but wouldn't say it's Synthpop, it's House music, French house or just Electronic as they have evolved in this genre from their beginnings in Acid house and Techno, to Disco, etc - Lotuscandy
Synthpop is wrong. House music!
Runner up: Jason becker. - gemcloben
The Ramones are better - 445956
Uh, no. She's at her worse.
Seriously? Why is this even on here? - Minecraftcrazy530
