83 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

Jackie has, from day one, sang not only her beautiful-------right on----physical notes but she sings from her heart and often brings some in her audience to tears. She is way beyond gifted and proven that she has "staying power." She is a force to be reckoned with in the music world!

There is entertaining, with singing as one component,
And there is pure music.
Jackie raises the use of music, to connect with the audience's emotions, to an art form.
This alone makes her one of the most important musical artists of our time.
And then there is the Voice...

Greatest voice of the 21th century. Jackie Evancho will have a long and rewarding career.

84 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

87 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!

88 Beastie Boys Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch. V 1 Comment
89 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

90 Owl City Owl City Owl City is an American Synthpop/Electronica project created in 2007 in Owatonna, Minnesota; it is the most successful of several projects by singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adam Young.

No music makes me happier than Owl City. Thank you Adam for making such fantastic songs!

My personal favorite.

Owl City is the best out there. His music is full of metaphoric lyrics and not all that great rhymes but in between his rhymes is amazing...until he sang with carly rae jepsen in good time that song wasnt as good

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.

Amazing progressive rock artist!

93 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

98 The Doors The Doors The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore.

What! Why are the doors so far below? The band which inspired millions of people and also led a revolutionization against THE MAN (for those who have watched 'school of rock'), this is unacceptable. They need to be high, high and higher.

Best band ever how is it at 67 should be number 1 can't believe one direction and Taylor swift are a head the doors influenced so many people and Jim Morrison has such a great voice should be 1

I give up on hope for humanity since Kesha is higher than the Doors... :(

Kesha, rappers, and Meghan Trainor above the best 60s band? Awful! - Lucretia
