Greatest Music Artists of All Timecamp0112
The Contenders: Page 3
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
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
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.

One of the best female vocalist everV 2 Comments
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 - LucretiaV 10 Comments
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.
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
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
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
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
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.
Yay Pantera is in the top 50 at least - christangrant
Pantera is thr best groove metal band - Lucretia
*note that she is no longer called Ke$ha for the incident I'm about to cover below*
You know, I've said some really mean things about Kesha. How she's this noxious valley-girl who can barely sing and can only talk about drugs and partying.
How terrible of me to discount her longtime producer Dr. Luke. Not only was he the primary producer of Only (one of the worst songs ever instrumentally), he caused her mental trauma, forced excessive fasting because she looked "like a refrigerator", drugged her, and abused her.
He also prevented her from making more mature work than Tik Tok and BlahBlahBlah. To this day he still has control over her, which is a real shame because she has the potential to be amazing. - WonkeyDude98
She sucks worst artist ever
Ke$ha is a horrible artist
One of the better music artists of todayV 1 Comment
What's this? Ariana? Miley? Selena? Demi? They are all no-talent pop starlets who get outclassed by almost everyone in at least one way. - WonkeyDude98
So many trash artists above good artists and good bands. For example: Deep Purple, Judas Priest, Kraftwerk, Motorhead, and many more. Pantera inspired Linkin Park and Linkin Park is miles higher. What a sad world. - Powerfultekin
Higher than David Bowie? What a joke
Definitely shouldn't be on any greatest artists list. Even if it top 1000 she shouldn't be there.
She can not sing - LucretiaV 17 Comments
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
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
Araiana Grande and Kanye West are above this and Bob Marley - HimalayansaltV 5 Comments
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 AWESOMEV 3 Comments
