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.
127 Creedence Clearwater Revival

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
128 The Weeknd
Abęl Makkonen Tesfaye, known professionally by his stage name The Weeknd, is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer.
Eddie Cochran is NOT on the list... Damn, the world...
Great artist and next big thing in pop
^^ 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.
