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

An incredibly fantastic musician. Morrissey was brilliant in the Smiths, and continues to excel with his solo music. Can write the most amazing lyrics which always feels so real.

140 One Direction One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a 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

What is this list even with bands like this so high - Lucretia
