62 Radiohead Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

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!

Pink. Really. Ahead of this. The Beatles is already blasphemy, but Pink. I can't even. You people have no taste. I don't feel anger, only pity. - MikaBeeWall

Definitely the best band of the past 20 years. Kid A and Ok Computer can stand alongside Dark Side of the Moon or Sergeant Pepper and even their lesser work like In Rainbows, A Moon Shaped Pool or The Bends is arguably better than their competition. Definitely top 15 at least

65 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

Over-singing rubbish that exploits issues like self harm and bullying to sell records. She doesn't write most of her own music and pretends to be some sort of activist when she's only using social issues to get attention. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

Respect this lady

She's a great person and I like her music, but she does NOT compare to anyone in the top 10s or even 20s.

She's stayed strong through everything life has thrown at her and we should all respect that right?

John Lennon was included in the Beatles and Beatles are #1 and John Lennon made a huge contribution to the Beatles so he should also be near #1

How is John Lennon so low? He actually believed in writing music for peace, yet One Direction is higher?

The greatest songwriter of all time

Eminem
Linkin Park
Bruce Springsteen
Foo Fighters
Jackie Evancho

75 Smashing Pumpkins Smashing Pumpkins The Smashing Pumpkins is an American alternative rock band from Chicago, Illinois, formed in 1988. Formed by frontman Billy Corgan and James Iha, the band included D'arcy Wretzky and Jimmy Chamberlin in its original incarnation.
76 The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground The Velvet Underground was an American rock band, active between 1964 and 1973, formed in New York City.

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. - Mun
