142 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

This guy, is the guy who killed worldwide music.

This guy is embarrassing.

Sorry, but no. This guy is an excellent r&b singer, and not a rapper. He tries to rap. If we were ranking based off of his skill at singing though, he would be nowhere near this high.

Forever best song love drake - JDagger500

154 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne

Avril is the best!

She's one of the best musicians of all time!

Sadly totally underrated.
People should listening to the albums instead of the singles only.

Not a fan! Pink puts Avril to shame!

155 Aerosmith Aerosmith Aerosmith is an American rock band, sometimes referred to as "the Bad Boys from Boston" and "America's Greatest Rock and Roll Band".

Aerosmith is another career overlooked by Rolling Stone. Aerosmith has written the three songs that defined 70's rock: "Dream On", "Walk This Way", and "Sweet Emotion". "Kings and Queens" is an underrated must-hear by the band.

How is a joke like Justin Bieber above Aerosmith? Aerosmith is real music; Justin Bieber is just a wannabe.

Aerosmith is rock and roll legend. So many great hits. I love these guys! One of my top bands! They deserve WAY more credit than this!
