172 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

I just love this guy. He is very nice and very intelligent. And even though his music seems bad to some, it all has meaning to it. I have a lot of respect for him. I saw him in concert with a friend one time and it was awesome. He needs to be higher.

It's a disgrace that this man is below Fred Durst.

173 Chris Martin Chris Martin

How is Chris Martin so low on the list? Coldplay wrote some of the best songs of the 2000s thus far, with plenty of hits and 6 straight number one albums in the UK. Chris was an integral part of this... "Viva La Vida," "Paradise," "Yellow," and "Clocks" are some of the most recognizable songs in recent history. There are a lot of hidden gems in Coldplay's catalogue though that deserve much more appreciation; "Politik" and "Strawberry Swing" are pure masterpieces.
