Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

This band should be at #1000 of this list. Just terrible

I'm sorry but why is this band higher than music legend David Bowie?

I like some of Maroon 5's stuff, but I am really surprised to see them this high out of all the musicians that ever existed

0.5 percent is perfect for them - Lucretia

At last a list that gives My Chemical Romance the credit they deserve :) My Chemical Romance isn't just a band is a way of seeing life, is hope, is happiness, is also sadness, is life itself with everything that it has for a human beign. My Chemical Romance touched hearts of a lot of people on earth and also they do saved lives... Many lives. They are a band to look up to without a doubt and in my opinion the greatest band ever.

Damn, damn, DAMN! KANYE WEST WASN'T ON THIS LIST?! I THINK I'm GOING CRAZY! RAR! How on Earth... What the... Why is... This guy should be in top ten. Sure, he's a cocky show off, but that doesn't effect his incredible music! The best rapper ever, next to Chamillionaire eminem! WORD OUT, NOOBS

The sad thing is, Kanye West is the greatest music artist of all time the world just doesn't know it yet, when he dies, that is when it will be known.

I do like his music a lot but he is definitely too high already.

Kanye West is the best as an artist, but not good as a rapper - venomouskillingmachine

How is My Chemical Romance, Kanye West, and Taylor Swift above Blink-182? This is the best band ever, My Chemical Romance is not bad, but they are kinda overrated and mostly mediocre at best. Taylor Swift is one of my most hated music artists, she has no creativity, Tom DeLonge is way more original and creative than she is. And Kanye West is not even a good rapper. - AnimeDrawer

50 OneRepublic OneRepublic OneRepublic is an American pop rock band. Formed in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 2002 by lead singer Ryan Tedder and guitarist Zach Filkins, the band achieved commercial success on Myspace as an unsigned act.

One of the best of our generation, but they aren't as great as everyone think

So glad to see them here. Love them! So talented!

Why is this higher than David Bowie?

Good songs, music and lyrics.

51 Frank Sinatra Frank Sinatra Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century.

The greatest of all time!

Why is Jackie higher than sinatra? This is just stupid - 12cc

52 Bob Marley Bob Marley Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim.

Out of the many reggae artists out there, the greatest, and most famous would be Bob Marley. Marley is the best of his kind, writing classics such as "Buffalo Soldier", "I Shot the Sheriff", and "Three Little Birds" - camp0112

He is so amazing, and he knows what it is like to live without a microwave, and an oven. He also preached one love, and fought against descrimination, and did die a pretty poor man. Please don't even write justin beiber's name in the same sentence with his name in it. He is absolutely great, and has the best quotes

35. Seriously? How is Eminem higher than him? 4 decades and his music is still probably the most iconic ever. I still can't believe he is 35.

Bob Marley the best and famous than all list artists. Everyone knows Bob Marley.

Tøp is literally a band that has the most introspective lyrics ever. I was so shocked when I saw they weren't on this list.

All of their songs have a really deep meaning behind them, even if it's about one of their mothers. Even then, you can relate to it.

Everyone I met that hadn't ever listened to them fell in love with them immediately, all because of maybe one song.

They may change their genre a lot, but every single type suits them. I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart that they saved me, and I'm so grateful and glad that I'm alive at the same time as them.

If you haven't listened to them yet, I recommend that you do.

Twenty One Pilots is awesome

Such an amazing band

Their new song 'Heathens' is great

Justin Beiber above Megadeth? Is this some sick joke?!

Why is Metallica so high and them so low? - Lucretia

55 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Of all time Imagine Dragons might be top 200 but they are lots of better artists. This is definitely too high people should listen to more music.

They have 5 times as many great songs as what they have on the radio.

I love imagine dragons just as much as the rest of you, but I'm not gonna say their the greatest of all time. - RecklessGreed

Demons, On Top of the World, Radioactive, It's Time, all ONE ALBUM. THAT'S AWESOME

I don't really have any other reason to vote for this other than they're, in my opinion, the greatest band that has every lived.

The biggest band EVER! Unique Bono's vocal, Edge's guitar, Adam's bass and Larry's drums. Absolutely magnificent.

Man classical rock for 40 years should be way above 35

63, jajajajajaja. This is the best band ever.
