84 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee Bruce Lee was a Hong Kong American martial artist, action film actor, martial arts instructor, philosopher, filmmaker, and the founder of Jeet Kune Do.

I think he's the one who should be admired very much. He lived in the time that racism was widely spread. He had somehow changed the way how the White people used to look to the Black people and the Asians. He's the first Asian superstar in the Hollywood, overcame the racism. He died too soon - just in the age of 32. If he had been able to live longer, he would've astonished the world even in the greater way... And there're more a bout his life, we should know clearly to see how admirable he is.

I think his philosophy will end up being his biggest mark on society. He had a HUGE cultural impact that continues to grow today.

The greatest martial artist of all time!

Do I need to describe the master!?

He used film to connect two cultures, and it is still done today. Very worthy of this list.

87 Steve Jobs Steve Jobs

My idol Steve Jobs who with his ultimate creative way of thinking and ability to see the world differently, did certainly change the lives of millions and millions of people today and billions and billions of people tomorrow. He was a man who excelled in exploiting the core business and in parallel exploring different opportunities bringing them back to the core smoothly. Steve kept on reinventing himself and reinventing the industry. He is the KIng of innovation. My first computer was Apple in 1993, remained Apple ever since and will always remain Apple. Thank you for changing the world, and big thank you to the team at Apple for making the world a better place. Maher Ezzeddine, CEO, Creativemode (

Even if you use a windows PC and carry an android smart phone and hate all things Apple. It can't be denied that both developers rose as competitors who were built off of Ideas established by Steve Jobs. I think at least in todays world Steve should be placed among the top 10. Go ahead, rid yourself of all things in your life that you use every single day that exist because of the influenced Steve had on the world an see if you can feel the influence.

He was the best innovator in the world. He deserved to get this word.

88 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Tanzanian-born British singer, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer more.

I cannot believe he wasn't in the top ten, let alone the whole list! By now, you must know me, the crazed Freddie Mercury fan. I am just very upset that I had to ADD him! He deserves to be number 2 or 1! (Jesus is #one). All you have to do is listen to "The Show Must Go On". He influenced me in many ways. He told me to be creative, to love, and of course that you should never give up. As I say, "Don't stop till you drop! "
And this quote was like how Freddie was. He never gave up until he succumbed to HIV/AIDS in 1991. Long live.

Justin Bieber *Status* HAS A COLD/MINOR SICKNESS - Cancels entire concert

Freddie Mercury *Status* VERY VERY SICK, ALMOST DYING - Still sings like no other man can

If it weren't for him and Queen there wouldn't probably be a Lady Gaga! He influenced her! What a great man!

Alll he could do was to ACT like he is the best, most talented, unique person... acting so pure that even he came to believe it! I agree he was influential, but more for people who like to spend their time with lyrics like
Mama... I don't wanna die...
He is popular but the critics view doesn't see him the god people see

91 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler was an Austrian politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939 and was a central figure more.

Ok, somehow hard to write here. I don't think Jesus isn't that big anymore. Maybe in the US but elsewhere? I don't know.

Hitler as a leader wasn't worse than Stalin or Mao Zedong (I mean the tough side; they all were bad persons who killed millions). But he had more influence on people and still has, than both of them.

So what I mean is:

He is responsible for USA and USSR to gain the state of superpowers. Without him, the atomic bomb, either wouldn't have been invented, or would have been later invented.

Also Germany wouldn't have lost it's state as a science centre of the whole world, which is still discussable by asking was it good or bad?! (They had scientists none reached till today).

First man on moon, as ridiculous it sounds, wouldn't have been without him that fast. It was the competition between Soviets and Americans, which was a result of WW2 and the engaging of German scientists after the war (What wouldn't have happened, if WW2 hasn't ...more

Convinced an entire nation to believe what he believed! He's very intelligent and cunning.

Without him the USSR probably would not had expanded as a world power causing the cold war, the British empire may not had collapsed and the disgust the world held for what the Nazis did led to a shift of human rights ideals. Its not impossible that japan never had the courage to attack the U.S. as well, leaving the U.S. still in isolation policies. The current world would be very different indeed. Even as evil as he is his impact on the world changed the 20th century.

He was a leader and had a nice moustache

92 Oprah Winfrey Oprah Winfrey Oprah Gail Winfrey is an American media proprietor, talk show host, actress, producer, and philanthropist.

Through her regular favorite things specials, Oprah has influenced me, and a lot of other people to be superficial and only care about money and status symbols. I think consumerism is one of mankind's most important values, and that one day it will heal this land. She is always on the cutting edge of revolutionary philosophical movements, such as the secret and the law of attraction. I thank Queen Oprah everyday for spreading these incredibly beneficial, highly moral, substantive and robust ideas so far and wide.

She is not the cousin of american president barack obama

She b killin it up in here up in here

93 Robbie Williams Robbie Williams

The most entertaining male artist of his generation. His charismatic mixture of American Brat Pack with British Pantomime enables him to effortlessly charm the audience in an instant.

He injects actual personality into his songs - refreshing in a world of generic pop.

He's been a great inspiration for many people

I love him so much, he is the best!

I love this guy

96 Kanye West Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching more.

He's a arrogant prick that claims to be the number one rockstar on the planet yet he has probably never even heard of freddy mercurry, robert plant, ozzy, rob halford, dio, lemmy or whoever

Don't know anything about the man

He is a very nice guy

He's closest thing to the Holy Trinity. enough said.
