Yeah makes sense doesn't it? One Direction, Kesha, Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor, among others are ahead of this genius... Deserves at least top 20!

This list is so stupid. How the hell is Cody Simpson ahead of Biggie Smalls. Ya'll are retarded.

It's Insane that Eminem is in the top 20 but Biggie isn't even in the top 100

Should be in top 10 R.I.P biggie small

104 The Script The Script The Script is an Irish pop rock band formed in 2001. The band comprises keyboardist and lead vocalist Danny O'Donoghue, guitarist and vocalist Mark Sheehan and drummer Glen Power.

Wide range of song genres, Great singer. Probably the latest rock band to get to number 2 in the charts. They have also got to number 4 and their first single We Cry got to number 15. - biddiebob99

My favorite band. They are very inspirational and have amazing lyrics in every song. They don't have one song don;t love. They deserve to be number one.

Amazing lyrics in their songs and a great sound - usiddiq93

Amazing voices, lyrics + originality.

105 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1997 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst.

No matter what they say Three Days Grace is and will always will be #1. Adam Gontier, Barry Stock, Brad Walst, and Neil Sanderson are my heroes. Their music is focused on every emotion that every person feels wether if its angry, sad, happy, love, or hate. Their music gets me through the tough times and that is why they are #1.

106 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

Let's just be clear one direction is talented. Metal bands are generally talented. Many types of metal, such as thrash metal and death metal, do not take much effort for those who are good musicians. Seriously, canniball corpse is screaming into the mike while guitar and drums are being played fast. Not saying it's bad, just stating the facts. One direction also does not put time and effort into their songwriting. A talented boy band who simply makes music to sell records (no shame in that, but it is unoriginal on purpose). Don't use the charts as an excuse for them being this high. 5 words. Who. Let. The. Dogs. Out. So do you guys really think 1d should be 300 some spots above outkast, for example? No. And mentioning how good every single metal band to ever exist is irrelevant and childish, let alone untrue. Never said you couldn't like them or metal music. Just saying...

Why do people prefer listening to this unholy garbage that is made without any effort, thought or originality instead of complex, intelligent and energetic music like metal? One Direction is the prime example of an artist that doesn't deserve the fame that it's been given. Do not listen to this terrible disgrace to music.

Listen to real music; like AC/DC, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Led Zeppelin, KISS, Motorhead, Pantera, Slayer, Anthrax, Megadeth, Ozzy Osborne Venom, Disturbed, Linkin Park Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, Rob zombie, Dragonforce, Rhapsody of fire Gloryhammer, Blind Guardian, Avenged Sevenfold, Killswitch Engage, Annihilator, and Alice Cooper.

They have no talent. - RiverClanRocks

107 Rod Stewart Rod Stewart Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

His Music is so nice. He is the best sole artist in my opinion. He should be one of the most famous sole artist rights next to Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, and Bob Dylan. He has good songs like I Don't Want to Talk about It, Tonight's the Night (Gonne Be Alright), The Killing of Georgie (Part I and II), The First Cut Is the Deepest, I Was Only Joking, Maggie May, Every Picture Tells a Story and other songs from the album Reason to Believe: The Complete Mercury Studio Recordings and more.

It's a joke that Rod's not in top 20? Rod Zombie and Susan Boyle feature higher. Ok, his American Song Books lost him some credibility, but he has sung so many classic songs over five decades. At 71 he still is a great live performer. So come on get real and move him up this chart to a sensible position.

108 Gorillaz Gorillaz Gorillaz are an English virtual band created in 1998 by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett. The band consists of four animated members: 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle and Russel Hobbs.

Eddie Cochran is NOT on the list... Damn, the world...

Great artist and next big thing in pop

no

^^ if the only argument that you can use is chart popularity, your argument is weak. Who let the dogs out also was in the top ten. And in Canada, a song that literally went " mimimimimimimi mimimi sexy mimi" a couple times with an electro part was on the chart too.

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

Should be much higher, makes me disappointed

Very underrated band in general - Lucretia

Wow... This is sad. I can understand CCR not even being top 10, but how can they be this low? Some of the artists ranked higher than them I've never heard of...

This is just amberessing, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber befor CCR? Laugh out loud
