Greatest Music Artists of All Timecamp0112

Why are ABBA so low! Just because they're not together anymore, doesn't mean they are forgotten! Bjorn and Benny are excellent and amazing songwriters and Agnetha and Anni-Frid are the best vocalists! When their voices are combined, it's just magic! They are my favourite music group EVER! They should be way higher on this list because they are inspiring and wrote for other artists!
Why is Abba so low? They were one of the most popular pop groups of the 1970s and at that time, were the group that sell the most records since The Beatles! Some of their most memorable songs include Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Fernando, S.O.S and loads more! Today, even their records are still sold and listened to! Their music is timeless and are truly one of the music legends ever existed! Abba do not deserve this rank, they should be much higher! - ivylee
Combination of catchy, well produced songs, very likable and sexy women singers who actually got along well with each other and harmonized better live and on record than anybody.

She sucks, but she's better than most artists today, to some it up, Lady Gaga has talent in her
Best artist ever hands down
Gaga 's voice is so power full and beautiful so I think she diserve to be one of the top.
This man was a special man to America. Even at 68 now, he still performs. He just one the Gershwin Prize along with many others. His dad even told him that he would win the Gershwin Prize one day. He is amazing. With incredible songs such as "Yesterday", "Blackbird", "Hey Jude", "Maybe I'm Amazed", "Live and Let Die"-- you know what? I can't even name name all the great songs he's brought the world. This musician, legend, and knight, with or without the Beatles, has brought the world something special. He has brought the world thousands of probably the best songs anyone will hear in there life. Paul is one of the greatest, if not, the greatest songwriters who ever lived. - camp0112
Not sure what the grading criteria is but McCartney is a top 20 artist of all time without any question.
How in earth is Paul McCartney in 286. This list is a trollV 1 Comment
Rick James created a type of music called Punk Funk! Great musician, song writer, producer, entertainer and singer!
This is my favorite band of them all. I love all their music. It is very hard rock and inspirational. I don't get why they are almost at 300, but, they are still way better than the rest of the competition
Skillet is the best rock band(my opinion) in a while. They have a varied audienceV 1 Comment

I love Manson.
Shouldn't be ahead of Ice Cube, Macklemore or Rakim
Nick Cave is one of the greatest. His lyrics are like none other. He is a legend.
How they are not in the top 10 is beyond me
The Forth Toto's album defined the music and quality.
He deserves to be much higher on the list. He is underestimated just because he made All The Small Things(that song is fun, not bad, but people find it a bad song). In my opinion, he is a lot better than the music artists considered good. He makes so much good music, I haven't heard a single song that I hate from him, all his songs are good, most music artists at least make one bad song. His guitar riffs are so catchy and great, especially in songs like Obvious, All Systems Go, Go, Secret Crowds, and Snake Charmer. People think all he can do is pop punk, but he is greater than that, he has a wide range of genres, from skate punk to pop punk to emo to post hardcore to space rock to electronic and even made an indie rock song. His lyrics can go from fun, silly songs, to extremely depressing and sad songs. He always adds a unique sound to his music, and is never boring, and experiments. And his vocals are so unique, no one can imitate his singing, his raspy high pitched voice with the ...more - AnimeDrawer
As much as I love Billie Joe Armstrong and Mark Hoppus, they don't deserve to be above Tom DeLonge to be honest, a lot of people will disagree, but honestly Tom deserves higher than both of them. Mark Hoppus is actually a great songwriter, he wrote Adam's Song, but some of his songs don't have very great lyrics(most of the songs in California). Plus, Mark Hoppus lacks progressing, even though his music is good, his band 44+ was basically just Blink-182 without Tom, that is it, even though the songs are good, he does great in everything except progressing. I really love his voice, it is soothing and calm, but I prefer Tom's voice. Billie is actually pretty good technical, and a great songwriter too, but he really isn't that creative, he is, but not that mcuh. His new album Revolution Radio has good songs, but the new song he released this year is honestly not that great, and the trilogy from his band wasn't good. Tom DeLonge on the other hand, progresses, and is very creative when it ...more - AnimeDrawer
How on earth are they this far down!?
I was expecting them to be in at least the top 40s. They're like the 3rd band with the most number 1 hits!
GREAT BAND I 70 S
Haha that's what happens when you leave the voting to some laughable ultracrepidarians...They were gigantic,simply the best there was,is,and probably will ever be...got it...Nr.1! only...Just try to go through their unique,5 decades spanning body of work and then come here to give me right and to vote adequately!
Punk pioneers The Ramones should be a shoo into the top ten. Listen to their album Brain Drain, it makes makes death metal sound like Taylor Swift. This is the Ramones gone hardcore. - shawnwalker
