201 Oasis Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

Why is oasis not higher

Ughh...Oasis is so overrated. I know this will probably make a ton of people mad, but have you heard the guy's voice? Wonderwall makes me cringe...the long notes...

202 Nas Nas Nasir bin Olu Dara Jones, better known by his stage name Nas, is an American rapper. His album, Illmatic, is considered to be one of the best rap albums of all time. He is also considered to be one of the best rappers of all time.

Nas is my favorite artist of all time. He is actually godly. Get him to number 1 now. Illmatic, It Was Written, I Am..., Stillmatic, God's Son, The Lost Tapes and Life is Good. These are very good albums. He needs to be higher. Go Nasty Nas!

Nas being at only 195 and Bob Dylan not being higher than The Beatles pretty much proves that this list is a joke.

He needs to be way way Wayne higher

He made illmatic enough said

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!

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.

Ugh. This band is the bane of my existence.

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

209 Backstreet Boys Backstreet Boys

Ha ha ha they so terrible they should like 800. Well they shouldn't even be on this list.

They're just too much awesome!

210 Outkast Outkast

Why so low. I don't understand. Probably because of some 60s band that is no longer relevant today took their spot, not out of talent, not out of lyricism, but out of pure favouritism and fandom. Geez people. Learn to appreciate other genres other than classic rock and respect their various talents, such as outkast

Greatest singer-songwriters of all time, beyond any imagination. Overlooked and underrated too often, too long, it's time the whole world recognizes their extraordinary value and talent

They should be much higher than this
