61 Ludwig Van Beethoven Ludwig Van Beethoven

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 - Himalayansalt

Black Sabbath is awesome! They're one of the bands that practically inspired many of the bands we have today. They deserve so much more credit. Long live Black Sabbath!

Black Sabbath created metal! Why are they ranked 61! should be at least top 20!

63 Eagles Eagles The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971 by Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner.

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.

How did 1D and Meghan train or?

64 John Frusciante John Frusciante John Anthony Frusciante is an American guitarist, singer, producer and composer.He is best known for his time with the Funk Rock California based band the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

He is the most underrated musician ever... Period!
He is the real guitar God---His works with Peppers are just awesome...
Don't believe me---you gotta try Scar Tissue, Snow, Californication... List goes on

But this is him as a solo artists not with the band. So mention his solo works. - Powerfultekin

65 Aretha Franklin Aretha Franklin Aretha Louise Franklin (born March 25, 1942) is an American singer–songwriter and musician. Franklin began her career singing gospel at her father, minister C. L.

She should be way further than this

Just like Björk She's Also An Angel From Heaven - 12cc

66 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

The fact that they are lower than the likes of 5sos and Katy Perry is insulting. - TheEvilNuggetCookie

67 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?

68 John Lennon John Lennon John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer and songwriter who rose to worldwide fame as a co-founder of the Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. He was assassinated by Mark David Chapman on December 8, 1980 at age 40.

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

Let Me Name The Least Number Of Artists That Shouldn't Be Higher Than John Lennon:
Eminem
Linkin Park
Bruce Springsteen
Foo Fighters
Jackie Evancho
Maroon 5
Mariah Carey
2pac
Whitney Houston
Taylor Swift
Imagine Dragons
My chemical Romance
Demi Lovato
Coldplay
Ariana Grande
Avenged Sevenfold


Seriously What Are These People Doing In Front Of John Lennon? Someone Tell Me Why? - 12cc

69 Jessie J Jessie J Jessica Ellen Cornish, better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. Born and raised in London, she began her career on stage, aged 11, with a role in the West End musical Whistle Down the Wind.
70 Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, baptised as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart, was a prolific and influential composer of the Classical era, born in Salzburg.

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.

Classical Music Is Never Appreciated. - 12cc

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 - PeeledBanana

New and creative

The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One ...read more.

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

Obviously not the greatest artist of all time, but DEFINITELY the greatest electronic artist of all time.

Dubstep is the worst, and this is why I hate this genre

Progressive house is king, and deadmau5 is king of progressive house.

This god should be number 1. His songs are original.

He isn't like all the other people. He makes great chords.

His chords are the most inspiring and original. Listen to Strobe and Aural Psynapse and you'll see why. His songs are for anyone, any age. anywhere anytime. Check him out and you'll be hooked.

76 Dr. Dre Dr. Dre Andre Romelle Young, better known by his stage name Dr. Dre, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur. He is the founder and current CEO of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics.

Dre invented gangster rap with NWA - without him modern rap wouldn't exist.

A talented rapper, one of my favourites, and arguably the greatest of all time, but shouldn't be this high to be honest. Consider that all the music acts that have actually "made it" number to probably tens of thousands.

Great artist! "Big green tractor" was a hit out in the burbs

The father of gangsta rap at 67! Why world why
