Kraftwerk should be number 2 after the Beatles since every Pop, techno, rap and mainstream musical artist can thank this band for modern mixing, harmonizing and experimentation of eclectic and synthesized sounds. You wouldn't have turn tables and sound samples without Kraftwerk. They didn't just break the mould they created it.
They invented electronic music, and heavily influenced modern pop and hip hop.V 1 Comment
She is a role model & amazing at singing, dancing and being a philanthropist. She is definitely one of the most influential people in the world!
Shakira is very influential just because her IQ is the highest in music industry - Alexandr
Even though he's blind, he's still optimistic in all his music
Pure technicians. Many try to duplicate, many fail.
Adele was greatly inspired by her, but she's higher in ranking
Coldplay have pretty much saved my like- it's the least I could do to vote
I love this band, I think they are #1!
Definitely underrated in terms of his influence on pop especially in the 70s. He is the key musician that made the use of piano so relavent in the rock and roll scene, as before that piano was considered at best niche. Up to this day he continues to influence many musicians especially new talents to give them the confidenece to pursue their goals (one example is how he kept guiding Eminem, and also trained Adele to be able to sing live without getting nervous).
His melodies are timeless and provided lots of inspiration for artists who want to master how to create very memorable hooks. His influence on British culture has been recognized as he is the first musician to receive the Brit Icon award.
For me whenever I think of piano rock and roll, I think of him first and foremost. He knows how to really control the flow of piano with the flow of his singing and the matches it expertly with the flow of the song. Any piano pop song I always compare it to his works as the gold standard.
She influenced primarily all modern artist I can't fathom why she isn't in the top 20 or at least 30. Her smooth tones and not to me tion her acting career.
Her style and class still influence artists today
Really? She's not in the #top20 or even in the #top40? I really couldn't live without hearing a little bit of Aaliyah...P.S. this is the same person who did the first one for Rihanna... And you're missing Mary J. Blige...
They revolutionised music in the 2000's and help many teens and adults overcome depression and self doubt. They brought together people going through hard times and spread positivity and unity throughout their community
Another one of the greatest glam-punk/dirty rock bands ever. So influential. Johnny Thunders, need I say more.
