He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under ...read more.
most jackson fans couldn't name 5 jackson songs they just go by the hype, didn't write most of his songs, didn't make an original dance move or routine, above average singer but certainly not the best
I actually like him but lets be real, his fans went from record low to record high the day he died
Come on, you guys! Michael Jackson deserves the praise for his songs! You should be ashamed of yourselves for putting such a great musician who died an unfortunate death as an overrated musician.
He's not bad, in no way. Also in no way he is "good", he is very good! BUT: look at all the credit which you give him. In the Internet he is a GOD, but what's with John Lennon, Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Jeff Beck, Bob Marley, Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant, Elvis Presley, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Kurt Cobain, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Bruce Springsteen, Ray Charley, B. B. Blue, Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, Tupac Shakur, Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, Prince, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, or even guys like Beethoven, Bach or Mozart... If Michael Jackson is a GOD, they must be GODs, too. And: "Thriller" is often named as the best album ever! Revolver, Sergeant Pepper, Abbey Road, Rubber Soul, The White Album, Pet Sounds, Animals, The Wall, Dark Side of the Moon, Led Zeppelin I-IV,... OK, This would be take to long... But there are 50 albums better than thriller or as good as. And ...more
How is Eminem above this guy? His music isn't even good. Eminem was right to make fun of him in his song "Just Lose It". His plastic surgery made him look so ugly it's unbelievable. At least Eminem had catchy songs with good lyrics. Michael Jackson is WAY OVERRATED.
The best singer, dancer and entertainer of all time! The king of pop is not enough to describe how amazing he was. He is not overrated at all. What's up with you?
He's number one in everything. I understand he's amazing and broke down social barriers (so if someone calls me racist I'm really not) but someone give someone else a chance. Artists such as Madonna and Prince are always second to him, even when they really shouldn't.
He has been really influential, people don't know what they're talking about
I do not get the hype in the slightest. Trying to listen to a song just bores me, all of the ones I've listened to have just sounded so similar, and the voice is just plain unappealing.
Then again, maybe I just expect too much, since I prefer Queen and David Bowie, since they bring variety and a pleasant voice (in my opinion, I know he was probably influential somewhere).
Well I do respect the fact that you like Queen and David Bowie. RIP David Bowie. - Anonymousxcxc
What? Are you crazy? How can you say that he is overrated? He is the best entertainer of all time! He is named the King of Pop but he was much more than just the King of pop!
I can't believe that he is on this list.. You're just jealous I guess..
Is "You a stupid hoe" really better than "Heal the World, make it a better place, for you and for me and the entire human race"? Enough said.
I see a lot of pop artists on here and that's good but let's be real, Michael Jackson is one of the only ones that have been able to pull out a huge career and not just famous for a year or two, but that's what I don't get, he's really nothing special, there are way more talented and devoted musicians than this guy that don't get nearly as much recognition
His best work was done by the time he was seven years old. After that, he became a parody, and un-listenable. Sorry, a grown man should not have a pre-pubescent little screechy voice. Even his dance moves were stolen from tap dancers two generations older.
It's another case if someone where's flashy clothes, dances and has some catchy songs he's considered a talented musician. - joshthomas
Michael should be taken off he's probably the best singer of the 20th century
Watch thriller and you will be obsessed for the rest of your life
Do you even know what overrated means?
FINALLY, He Should Be Number 2, The Beatles Should Be Number 1. - deandinosaur5
Who the hell put the king of pop on here? Whoever they are, they don't even have a good taste in music. Nicki Minaj should be 7 and Michael Jackson shouldn't be on here. - astroshark
He's really not that cracked up to being what he is said to be; his voice is annyoing, and he doesn't deserve his title as the King of Pop, ABBA are the Queens of it. - SoldierOfFortune
There's a genius behind each of his great albums and its not him
He gave himself the "King of Pop" nickname. More likely he was the king of child molestation. Very unstable... Look what he did to his face. He had no nose left... Not a stable human being.
First off this pathetic little man just had other people write his crap then he just rode the gravy train while he did whatever he wanted off stage I mean I know that's what other rockers, actors, etc. Do but what he did was just wrong.
Eminem, XXXTENTACION and Rae Sremmurd are WAAAY better than this helium voiced weirdo.
R u super serious right now? Michael is the king of pop along with abba. How in gods name is he overrated tell me how - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
He is a great singer. End of story. 1, He did NOT molest children! It's just the media being liars!
2, He changed his look because he felt different in a terrible way. So he did make a big mistake, but you kinda feel bad for the guy and his mistake.
3, Do you have a uniqe voice like his? Does JB have a better voice?... Didn't think so. Lets move on.
4, HOW DARE YOU MAKE SELENA UNDER HIM! SHE'S A JERK WHO THINKS SHE'S PERFECT! LISTEN TO THE SONG BANG BANG BANG!
5, He's just beloved. Not overrated. But the fans are rabid. - LpsDisneyTmntFreak
No Michael's skin changed to white because he had a skin condition (I looked it up). - Anonymousxcxc
