86 Daft Punk Daft Punk Daft Punk is a French electronic music duo consisting of producers Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter.

I think they're the best all time because they have a ton of hits (get lucky, around the world, one more time) and they have used different genres in their songs from all the way from rock to disco. People only hate them because they've only heard get lucky, which is still great.

Dang it, I voted Gorillaz before I saw them! Anyways, how are they this low?! Synthesizer doesn't equal trash! - Donut

At least in the top 20, they are the greatest electronic artists

88 Moby Moby Moby is an American musician, who has produced inventive new styles to various subgenres of electronic music, inspired by 1950's gospel as much as by modern rock, and musicians from New Order to David Bowie. ...read more.

The best, without a question. There's just nobody, nothing, not a single artist, that does anything quite like Moby. I grew up with Moby, and have tried all of my life so far to find a music artist quite like Moby. In all of these years of searching, there has been nobody quite as awesome; unbeatable, undeniable, underrated.

Adore the works of this truly underrated genius. Am listening to some as I type, and am adoring it. - PositronWildhawk

Are you kidding me they are the best. They should be in 1 place

91 Kid Cudi Kid Cudi Scott Ramon Seguro Mescudi, better known by his stage name Kid Cudi, is an American recording artist and actor from Cleveland, Ohio.

Come ON guys! Of COURSE this guy's the best! Laugh out loud to every1 who voted for kid cudi and the guy that made the option!

Let's get Kid Cudi to number 1 and show really how pointless these kind of charts are?

Day and Night is the best song ever! #coolest! - JDagger500

Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites is the best song! - JDagger500

He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer he has been in 3 other ...read more.

Freddie was an artist with a voice straight from heaven. he energized every performance, every song so much that he blows almost every other singer out of the water. Freddie should be at least 100 places higher!

Freddie should be WAY higher in this list. He has inspired over a BILLION people to be themselves. The notes he could reach were incredible, and it's REAL music to my ears. How is Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Meghan Trainor higher than him?

Freddie is and will always be the greatest singer of all time. His amazing vocals allowed him to reach notes like no other. Truly one of a kind. He was gift-wrapped right from God to bring billions together.

Waay better than Meghan. - DCfnaf

97 Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping With Sirens Sleeping with Sirens is an American Rock band from Orlando Florida. The band formed in 2009. SWS lead singer is Kellin Quinn
98 Ke$ha Ke$ha Kesha was born in L.A and is American. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

*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

One of the better music artists of today

99 Muse Muse Muse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals). They've won several awards including five MTV Awards, 8 NME Awards, ...read more.

Muse has one of the most iconic and reconcilable sounds. Their range in music is amazing and the different sounds and effects they use is insane. They are one of the best live acts and have minimal auto tune in their songs. One of the best bassists, singers and drummers. Plus no one can play guitar and sing like Bellamy. Muse should we further up the list. If you want to hear a range from them I would recommend Hysteria, Plug in baby, undisclosed desires, reapers, even showbiz to show Bellamy range. They should be way higher on this list.

One of the more diverse bands with various influences but above all stunning live performances of world class. Muse belongs at least to the first page, go!

Why is Muse under Justin Bieber and One Direction? - ThePwoperMuser101

Muse is The best alternative rock band!

100 Ray Charles Ray Charles Raymond Charles Robinson, professionally known as Ray Charles, was an American singer, songwriter, musician, and composer.

What is he doing so low in the list...

Needs to be at least top 30. He's a blind pianist with an amazing voice. Lots of effort put into his songs. - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Really? There is still no beyonce. She should be top 20. (I am serious)
She is The Queen of R&B, MTV and Grammy..
The Best Sound,
The best dancer.
Please..
