One of the best singing groups, I hope they continue singing
Blood sugar sex Majik is one of my favorite albums!
Blue Cheer is very underrated. All their studio albums are just as good as each other besides the first 2 albums which are the best. All great artist has a best album. This is Blue Cheer and that is why their other sound is so great. The Rolling Stones from albums Some Girls to Tattoo You (which have Punk rock influence), and Bob Dylan when he stared doing Roots rock and before the 80s where still as great like straight plain Rock music because they still have the feel as their other Rock music and have a classic rock feel in a way but had a different Rock sound to it too. Blue Cheer may sound different from 80s to now but still have a little bit of the classic rock sound and still have the Blue Cheer feel. Blue Cheer is like one of the only Rock artists from the start that did not want downhill. They change and made other great music. Dickie Peterson still have a great voice even though it is different from the younger days. It fits for Blue Cheer's music.

Blue Cheer is very distortion. When I listen to Blue Cheer it feels like it is something special and very cool. Blue Cheer takes me somewhere where other artists do not. Blue Cheer feels very deep. You need to listen to Blue Cheer or have to understand. Other Rock artists are just like another Rock artist. Name me one artist that has the same fell as Blue Cheer? You may say this artist use distortion but not has the same fell as Blue Cheer but more like Jimi Hendrix but heavier or deeper. The Beatles are something too but later music of The Beatles fells like Bob Dylan and The Byrds in a way. I know The Beatles where the first but that does not make them the best. There were other Rock artists before The Beatles. When Blue Cheer came out, Blue Cheer plays rock the best as a Rock artist can play. Blue Cheer rocks more than any artist that is not Metal or influence by Metal. - BlueFuse
Blue Cheer is just underrated and should be more known. Dickie Peterson made the band. Blue Cheer really rocks it out and is on the classic Rock side like Jimi Hendrix, Cream, The Rolling Stones, and The Who. If those artists are great than so is Blue Cheer. Rock has better top artists than Metal, Punk, Roots rock, Progressive rock, Experimental rock and Alternative rock. Blue Cheer is very fuzzy and you can really hear the guitar in the first 2 albums. That is why Blue Cheer is one of the best and why Blue Cheer is better than the Rock artists from those types of Rock music. People if you want something new and complain how you cannot fine any new Rock music than you should try Blue Cheer. It would be well worth trying Blue Cheer. - BlueFuse
Great great great great great way better than led zeppelin or any hard rock artist. may not be good like jimi bob beatles cream who stones but still top ten.V 5 Comments
SERIOUSLY?!?!? , 14th place isn't an acceptable position for these absolute legends. Need I say more? , they've appealed to all generations of people for 4 decades now and are the best rockers out there. With over 200 million album sales and over 50 million on back in black alone (the best selling rock album of all time). With Hits that never have/will get old like Thunderstruck, You shook me all night long, Highway to hell, Hells bells, Back in black AND THE LIST GOES ON. The best of the best and always will be. For those about to rock, we salute you
Best rock band of all time. no way in hell Green Day and My Chemical Romance should be above them. love both those bands, but neither compares to the legend that is AC/DC
This should be ahead of imagine dragons and many others, one of the best rock bands
So amazing. Who hasn't heard black in black?V 7 Comments
Can't believe Stevie Wonder is so far down! An absolutely fantastic artist with a sensational voice who creates beautiful songs. He is definitely my favourite and his music always cheers me up.
Stevie Wonder at this placement is crazy! Stevie Wonder should be in the top 10 undoubtedly! This man is a musical genius. His vocals are basically responsible for modern R&B. His songs and their composition... no words. This list ain't doing justice to Stevie at all.
I think he should be on number one. He's the greatest musician I ever heard. He can plays any instrument and sing very well in all genres! The lyrics he made are very touching with "catchy" melody. However, with his disability, he can create a magical music, many great musician inspired his music. that's why he called Stevie WONDER. He's WONDERFUL.
I think Steve Wonda should be in the top 10.V 2 Comments
39! ARE YOU SERIOUS! Maiden have been up there for nearly 40 years. If people think the beatles are the best, you need to understand the complicated music is EPIC! Not just like the beatles where they played a basic tune. IRON MAIDEN FOREVER
List is a big bad joke because Iron Maiden is at 43
Leaders if trad heavy metal - Lucretia
WHAT THE HELL?! HOW IS IRON MAIDEN SO FAR DOWN MUSIC IS DEAD! MUSIC IS DEAD! R.I.P MUSIC this is not right pop must die!V 1 Comment
Coldplay are already too high. It's a joke that people think they should be higher. They have made a few decent pop songs but there's a reason they have never been anywhere near as high on any music critic's lists.
Should be way higher on the list. Their music is amazing with every album they do...they always try new things and they are very good in doing so. They have made their mark in music history
Not even rock their pop although they have good songs and occasionally plays guitar but doesn't do much with it was overrated but because of music now rated

Chuck berry is in the top 5 music artists of all time every body took some of his songs can michael jackson play guitar like chuck berry or the beatles or rolling stones or led zeppelin I don't think so michael jackson doesn't belong in the top 20
I was very sad to hear that chuck berry died he is in the 5 best music artists of all time beatles number 1 led zeppelin 2 elvis Presley 3 4 rollin stones number 5 chuck berry those are the 5 best music artists ever
Berry was the first to write about rock and roll stardom, and he was the first to write surf rock (The Beach Boys themselves stole one of his tunes, "Sweet Little Sixteen", for their song "Surfin' USA. ")

The Hardest working man in show business should be in the top ten.
It's so typical that when there's a list that any fool can vote on, MJ makes the top. He shouldn't be in the top ten. He shouldn't even be in the top 15. And yes I know; he was an amazing entertainer (probably the best) and yes he danced incredibly good and always put on a show. And yes, he could sing in a very special and great style, he' s one of the greatest singers ever. But unfortunately for him, this is a list over the Greatest Musical Artists of all the time. MJ has not made that much to push music forward. He was very succesfull and he became EXTREMELY popular and he still is. But he's not the king pop. Could he even play any instruments.
I'm a musician myself and as many of us musicians think, it's really frustrating when this man always shows up at these kinds of lists. It' s annoying when non-musicians who doesn't really know that mich about music, talks as he was the biggest thing that ever happened ...more
This guy created funk. Enough said.
Want to know who Michael Jackson copied? Look no further than James Brown.
Honestly, one of the most talented groups of all time. They deserve more credit.
No bad work from them exists - Lucretia
There a great artist. There album Appetite for Destruction is great. I remember listen to the album when I was younger. It sound so cool and was good. The songs on the album are great. The album is hard. There are songs on the album like Sweet Child o' Mine and Rocket Queen Sound nice not very hard but have a nice beat to it.
Why is Linkin Park higher than guns n' roses?
Green Day and Linking Park are higher than Guns N' Roses. Why am I even wasting my time voting.
I feel disgusted when I see ACDC in front of Guns N' Roses. Guns and Roses did not use the same rifts for their songs like Acdc did.V 5 Comments
You people put skrillex above these guys? Faith in humanity has been lost
This is the right answer: The Queen Of Pop: Madonna (400 Millions Of Albums Sold)
Her impact in the pop culture is endless.
Should be 150th or something like that.

This is an outrage that the Beach Boys are so low, they belong among the top five. the Beach Boys Vocal Harmonies are among the Best in the World, Though they did not have great sales during the late Sixties and Seventies, They're Albums Pets Sounds (1966), Surf's up (1971), Sunflower (1970), Wild honey (1967), Smiley Smile (1967), and many others are some of the best psychedelic/Baroque rock/pop music, I suggest people listen to these albums. Pets Sounds in My opinion, is the greatest album of All time, and it raised the bar for Pop Music forever, and I think that it has never been surpassed, I have never liked Sgt Pepper, though I have listened to it many times, but it just never got me. It just wasn't my taste. SMiLE is a great album one of the greatest, they're music is a credit to America. In my list of Greatest Artists, The Beach boys and the Beatles are my Top 2, and I think they equally deserve the recognition. This is my opinion, but I hope some people agree.
I didn't come to this list expecting The Beatles to be ranked anything below first (though I don't think they merit a ranking of anything above about 1,000th), but The Beach Boys stand as the figurehead of 60's psychedelic music; Pet Sounds is incredibly innovative and the like, as well as a truly beautiful, nostalgic experience; SMiLE contains the greatest music ever recorded, among Beethoven's Ninth and Pachelbel's Canon; an unrelenting, moving, and, most especially, fun insight into the mind of an insane genius. Their music is the finest in creation.
During the British Invasion, this band was of the few American bands to compete with the Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, etc. They did write surf, but even wrote melodic, harmonic, songs and ballads. One album that demonstrated this was Pet Sounds, an album only to be topped by the all-mighty Sgt. Pepper's album. - camp0112

It's sad how this list doesn't rank artists in order of talent but instead of popularity, if it was in order of talent there is no doubt in my mind that the velvet underground as well as Simon and garfunkel would be hire, however this is not the case and this list seems to have been overrun by mediocre (in many cases poor) pop artists, it's a shame that my generation seem to struggle to discover music outside of the charts
Their music was amazing, listening to their album "The Velvet Underground & Nico" felt like listening to a philosopher speaking words of wisdom. If the Beatles are the kings of mainstream music, then these guys are definitely the kings of alternative music. - MunV 1 Comment
The artist is one the list because of the song Free Bird. I know that is only one song but lynyrd Skynyrd is one of the best artist and good artist can be good in their own way. If I had to pick a favorite song besides from my favorite artist it would be Free Bird. Why because the song has a nice beat to it. It is soft but it has a hard beat in it but not too hard.
Yeah baby these guys are awesome
Just listen to sweet home alabama
TUPAC IS #26?!
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Demi Lovato and my chemichal romance are above this man?!
THE GOD OF HIP HOP? THIS LIST IS A JOKE
Talented rapper! Rappers should have their own list. I mean how the hell can you compare Eminem to Led Zeppelin? Totally different styles in music!
Greatest ever in my opinion. Must be in top 5. Please vote for the rose that grew from concrete.
Best ever. Period.V 31 Comments
Honestly, I believe Rush should be at the top 5 list, their progressive rock style was way ahead of their time in the early years, and still is. Rush is one of the most important bands in the history of rock, and by far the best progressive-rock band. Just search up "bands inspired by rush" and you'll see. Geddy Lee is outstanding, with his unique style of playing keyboard, bass AND singing at the same time. Alex Lifeson is one of the guitarists with the most advanced and unique type of riffs, and Neil Peart is probably one of the greatest drummers of all time. They switch between classic rock-style to hard, progressive and technical rock, so their music can be for any type of rock fan. Rush truly deserves a higher placing here.
An ecclectic band, I'll give you that, but possibly one of the most talented, most experimental, most revolutionary bands on the planet. Not to mention that three individuals, Lee, Lifeson & Peart are in the top ten lists of most of their respected instrumental skills - Lee for bass, Lifeson for guitar and Peart for drums.
Hurts that Charles Manson and Rebecca Black are ahead of rush...
How... Rush is easily EASILY top 100. For me they're top 5V 2 Comments
