The 21st century began with the kickoff of one of the current generation's most influential artists, Linkin Park. With their fusion of modern and classic musical styles, instrumentation, and technology with popular Hiphop and Metal, these pioneers negated the need to fit into a genre and simply pursued the expression of pure art.
Though still young, Linkin Park's wide variety of music stretches across many genre of music. There are constant covers seen by other upcoming artists and YouTube sensations

Beatles. Stones. Dylan. Presley. Cohen.
Pure technicians. Many try to duplicate, many fail.
Adele was greatly inspired by her, but she's higher in ranking

Hank Williams is the most influential American popular musician who ever lived.
