Greatest Music Artists of All Timecamp0112
The Contenders: Page 3
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
Second most influential band of all time, they have long cemented their place in the history of rock music. I understand why they are not higher. Their music fits right in with the other sounds of today, and they have not recorded an album since 1970 (don't say Squeeze). They don't have the ubiquity of The Beatles, or Elvis, and they don't have the recency of bands like Linkin Park (17? What? ), but that doesn't mean they should be forgotten.
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. - Mun
Top 5 for me!
Mariah carey is the artist that everybody wish they could be like especially her singing when you hear her sing her ballads you just wish you can hit those high notes the way she hits those high notes with songs such as vision of love, Emotions, and fantasy her voice is just way to powerful with a 5 octave vocal range and she has the ability to reach high notes in the 7th octave vocal range as well she thrust into the 90's and tookover the 00's with the song we belong together gotta love Mariah Carey.
Destroyed by Eminem
Excuse me how is she 49?
The greatest female singer of all time!V 2 Comments
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
Are you actually kidding me?
Coldplay, who said themselves 'we are a version of Radiohead' are higher? Let alone all the other rubbish like My Chemical Romance and OneRepublic... I usually respect the people of this website but... come on. OK Computer, Kid A, The Bends and In Rainbows, all some of the most critically acclaimed and best albums of all time, and their other albums like Amnesiac and A Moon Shaped Pool are alone better than half the artists above this.
Why is this so much down below? I know it's everyone's opinion, but come one!
Just "Lucky" by them bashes out half of all the artists above Radiohead.
Maroon 5 is higher than Radiohead? I just lost all faith in humanity.V 13 Comments
Pearl Jam needs to be WAY higher in this list. Why's Nirvana higher than them? I actually love Nirvana but Pearl Jam is way better than them! Ten is 10x better than Nevermind. Nevermind is great, but overrated! Kurt Cobain is a great singer, but Eddie Vedder's voice is way better than his and just pure flawless.
Beethoven all by himself is worth more to music than all the rappers who ever existed.
I love the banging tune he released last year it was sick
His raps are sick
People obviously don't know this guy created MASTERPIECES like ode to joy and für elise, not those songs that people listen to these days that no one will remember the name of in 5 yearsV 6 Comments
One of the best female vocalist ever
WHY IS ARIANA GRANDE AND DEMI LOVATO ABOVE THIS GODDESS?
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
One of my favourite bands. Sure, they may not be the best but they aren't as bad as people say. There are many artists who are worse than them and don't get even half the hate this guys get!
Great lyrics and great sound. Love their old sound as well as their new sound. Follie a Deux is a must listen
Just the best sound in the industry, hands down.
Great man great lyrics great voice great music with full of emotions that what's special in Bruno I love his music
His recent music has been nothing short of gold - GrimmShady
Look at that hair - TopTenListmaker
A great singer,
Deserves to be higher up on the list.
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.
THE TRUTH? Listen to Bob Dylan, David Bowie & Lou Reed if you want the real TRUTH
Higher than Bowie? - SomewhereInLondon
Should be on top 10
Ed SHeeran is easily the best hitmaker of today. - GrimmShadyV 4 Comments
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?
When you realise they're below Kanye West, Ariana Grande and My Chemical Romance (don't get me wrong, My Chemical Romance are just as good but they're a tad overrated). - Mathyfox441V 1 Comment
The greatest of all time!
Why is Jackie higher than sinatra? This is just stupid - 12cc
Why the heck is he not top 3?
Kanye West and Maroon 5 are above this - HimalayansaltV 7 Comments
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.V 7 Comments
Classical Music Is Never Appreciated. - 12cc
Why is Taylor Swift higher than Mozart on this list? Mozart deserves a better ranking than this because his music is more sophisticated and way better than Taylor Swift's music due to the creativity and hard work he put in into his symphonies. Taylor Swift, on the other hand, "makes" nothing but half-assed mass produced songs that has no creativity, thought, or hard work put into it.
Because CLEARLY Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, One Direction, etc. are all better than Mozart. If they prove me right and compose 4 Seasons, I will retract this comment.
72 only? Respect classics people - PeeledBananaV 4 Comments
One of the best proto metal - Lucretia
Here's a list of crap artists that should be lower than deep purple,
5 Seconds of Summer
Seriously, all those artists above deep purple, WHY? - VideoGamefan5
Just a few reasons why the Eagles should be in the top 10. There we go: One Of These Nights, The Last Resort, King Of Hollywood, Wasted Time, Take It To The Limit, Life In The Fast Lane, Waiting In The Weeds, Long Road Out Of Eden, Take It Easy, Tequila Sunrise, Learn To Be Still, The Sad Café, Try And Love Again, I Can't Tell You Why, Already Gone, Bitter Creek, Train Leaves here This Morning, Peaceful Easy Feeling, Desperado, Lying Eyes, My Man, New Kid In Town, How Long, Heartache Tonight, Those Shoes, Hole In The World, Get Over It and... oh yeah, Hotel California! Seven different singers and some of the finest musicians AND songs of all time! Yet this is under 5 Seconds Of Summer, Kanye West and Ariana Grande...
This is ridiculous! People either forget or have 0 taste in music! Uhhh, hello! Hotel California, Lyin eyes, I can't tell you why.
Second best selling album ever enough said
