With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .

I mean I can understand someone like Lady Gaga being at #125 but Paul McCartney?! That's when you know things are being rigged

Michael Jackson is the king of pop. Elvis is the king of rock and roll. And Paul McCartney is the king of great catchy melodies.

How can people forget about him?! Not to mention... He was in the Beatles!

He was the best of the Beatles! The Beatles were #1, so why is Paul #114!?! The Beatles would not be the same without this man...

How can Neil Young not be higher on this list?!? He is one of the most influential artists ever with critically acclaimed albums in several genres. He is one of the greatest songwriters ever as well with deep and meaningful lyrics and hundreds of songs! He has been active for six decades and is still recording albums today. He had a huge influence on Rock and Country-Folk music but also recorded soul, synthpop and grunge. Albums like Silver and Gold, Harvest and Harvest moon are masterworks!

An original, unique legend - nobody will ever be better than this guy

One of the most talented male singers

The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Ritchie Sambora (left in 2013), bassist Alec John Such (left in 1994), keyboard David Bryan, and drummer Tico Torres. The band's ...read more.

I don't like to criticise peoples opinion, but it's hard not to when the band that wrote songs like livin' on a prayer, always, it's my life and other big hits including 4 billboard hot 100 no. 1 hits isn't even on the first page (hopefully when you are reading it Bon Jovi will be in the top 20 or something). It is also confusing because people have voted them and their songs very high on other lists, including livin' on a prayer at the top of the best 80s songs list. BON JOVI FANS, DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE FOR THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD.

Really 216 place! In my opinion Bon Jovi most be in the top tens

They are very overrated and not that good - Lucretia

Bon jovi the man

If today was your last day would you make your mark by mending a broken heart? Well that song inspired me to do kindness! I am a rockstar thanks to nickelback - JDagger500

Nickelback get's no respect from mainstream audiences. And that pisses me off!

Yes the members are cool and nice guys but Nickelback will always be a terrible band. - Powerfultekin

How is Nickelback ahead of Gorillaz? And more importantly, how is Gramatik nowhere to be found on this list? Two of my favorite artists barely receiving any recognition at all.

Talking about song-writers, if you don't mention him, you're not a music lover. You don't like rock n roll. From Heroin to Sweet Jane, from The Kids to Metal Machine Music, he is better than Dylan. He cannot be beaten. Ed Sheeran talking about the truth? I don't think so. Probably that's because you haven't heard about Lou Reed. He wins on longevity, experimentation, music and almost everything you can consider from a musician. Even Adam Sandler sang one of his songs ;3
