4 Depeche Mode Depeche Mode Depeche Mode are an English electronic and synth-pop band formed in 1980 in Basildon, Essex. The group's original line-up consisted of Dave Gahan, Martin Gore, Andy Fletcher, and Vince Clarke.

No, they really deserved it. - 445956

5 Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lopez Jennifer Lynn Lopez, also known as J. Lo, is an American singer, actress, dancer, fashion designer, author and producer.

9 Genesis Genesis Genesis are an English rock band formed at Charterhouse School, Godalming, Surrey in 1967. The most commercially successful and long-lasting line-up includes keyboardist Tony Banks, bassist/guitarist Mike Rutherford and drummer/singer Phil Collins.

I totally disagree. Genesis is a fantastic progressive rock band and band in general. They are very memorable. Don't believe me, just listen to The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway and tell me artists like Linkin Park are more memorable. - jack2244

The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Definitely Leppard, Radiohead, Genesis, Depeche Mode, Cheap Trick, Beastie Boys, and the police deserve to be on the list of VH1s greatest artists. I'm a little neutral about Coldplay, and Justin Timberlake. But hey, you've got to save room for bands like Iron Maiden, Deep Purple, Soundgarden RHCP, and many more bands. - Powerfultekin
