Justin Beiber above slayer?! This list is jacked up

Classic thrash metal classic, why is Metallica high and Slayer low? - Lucretia

62 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

65 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative metal/metalcore (early) band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.

Even if you're not into the type of the music that is the beatles (like me) you still have to respect them for being pioneers that made bands like avenged sevenfold the possibility of having a career. I guess I'd grudgingly put elvis above A7X also, but I have no respect for the Rolling Stones. A7X should be number 3 (maybe 4) but only below their influences. Though I wonder why no one's added the founder of the best genre of all time. Carcass who founded melodic death metal. Not top ten, but certainly should be close.

You've got to be kidding me. Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Ariana Grande are all higher than Avenged Sevenfold?! What is this world coming to?! - Rorywilbren

What is that. No 25. What the hell is going on? They should be in Higher.

Not really good - Lucretia

66 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?

67 Bruno Mars Bruno Mars Peter Gene Hernandez, professionally known by his stage name Bruno Mars, is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and choreographer.

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

A great singer,
Deserves to be higher up on the list.

68 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

69 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

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

72 Demi Lovato Demi Lovato

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?

SHE IS SO STRONG CONSIDERING WHAT SHE'S BEEN THROUGH AND I LOVE HER VOICE AND HER SONGS AND DEFINITELY HER NEW ALBUM. - 102501EMMA

He is the only three-time inductee to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: once as a solo artist and separately as a member of the Yardbirds and Cream. He has also been a member of Derek and the Dominos.

Green Day in top 20? No way what man. If talent was measure in length they would be a grain of sand and Clapton would be the entire universe. - guyritchi

Best guitarist ever what should be top ten - guyritchi

He's literally the most influential guitarist of all time

CLAPTON IS GOD

The band's ...read more.

I don't like to criticise peoples opinion, but it's hard not to when the band that wrote songs like livin' on a prayer, always, it's my life and other big hits including 4 billboard hot 100 no. 1 hits isn't even on the first page (hopefully when you are reading it Bon Jovi will be in the top 20 or something). It is also confusing because people have voted them and their songs very high on other lists, including livin' on a prayer at the top of the best 80s songs list. BON JOVI FANS, DO NOT FORGET TO VOTE FOR THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD.

Really 216 place! In my opinion Bon Jovi most be in the top tens

Bon jovi the man

They are very overrated and not that good - Lucretia
