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

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

93 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

95 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!
