61 Akon Akon Aliaume Damala Badara Akon Thiam, better known as Akon, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, businessman, record producer and actor.

really, really despise this guy and all he stands for. todays pop. him and the likes, neyo, flo rida, jay z or whatever they are called, they normally just crop up in the middle of a half decent song that they 'feature' in, and ruin it. - daftdavy

I dislike how most of the music today is about autotune this and autotune that. I honestly don't see why disco beats and autotune creates such a hype in the world.. Like david guetta and various Korean pop groups.

Akon is all right and all, but come on...he sings like he's drunk and suckin' helium...all of his beats are the same, I cant tell the difference between song other than the words and his songs are played TOO MUCH!

Definitely shouldn't be on this list. - DaWyteNight

64 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

It is the biggest con in the entertainment industry. Name is the most popular female colour, so the colour is everywhere and she gets helped out every time the colour shows up. She doesn't have a good voice either. Everyone of her songs gets 'helped' by the media because they enjoy conning people into liking something that is really crap. That 'so what' song sounds like a little baby copying 'black night' by deep purple and y'all eat it up like it's original and great because you are continually told to like it.

Speaking of "So What" why does she think she's a rockstar? That song sounds like it's from a Disney film. She tried to be r&b and now she's trying to be rock. She sucks.

67 Joey Jordison Joey Jordison Joey Jordison, is an American musician, songwriter, and record producer best known for his work as the former drummer and co-songwriter for the heavy metal band Slipknot as well as guitarist in the Horror-punk band Murderdolls.

Not really that talented a drummer to be honest, and his double bass isn't even that impressive. His signature snare drum was also a disappointment.

68 Elvis Elvis Elvis Presley was a American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. more.

All this contra-comments are stupid. He was the end of Rock and Roll? In 1954 at SUN Records he mixed black Rhythm and Blues with white Country. A new style was invented ( Rockabilly ). He stole his songs and style? He had a sex-appeal and charisma never seen before. Just listen to the Original songs and then listen to the versions of Elvis SUN records. They are completely different. It's a completely new sound. About Chuck Berry. His first record " Maybelline " from 1955 was an adaption of an old white country / Folk song " Ida Red " and his guitar playing style was copied after T-Bone Walker. Isn't that stealing also? Elvis shouldn't be on a overrated list. The ones who put him here have obviously no clue about the history of music and no knowledge about popular culture.

What stupid idiot put this here!

Not only is that picture stupid Elvis is to he's cheesy and if you're going to say he wasn't in the 50's well disco wasn't through the 70's and 80's

Elves is a phoney who stole his whole style and some of his songs from real rock and roll artists. The King of Rock is Chuck Berry. Go Johnny go go go!

Best the world will ever see. God bless her

71 Bon Jovi Bon Jovi Bon Jovi is a hard rock band formed in 1983, which had a streak of successful albums in the late 1980s. The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Ritchie Sambora (left in 2013), bassist Alec John Such (left in 1994), keyboard David Bryan, and drummer Tico Torres. The band's more.

Just screw these guys. The only reason they get so much attention is because they're old. "Livin' On a Prayer", "It's My Life", and "Always" are all terrible songs.

72 Gackt Gackt

actually very overrated in every list there is gackt. l'arc, d'erlanger and b'z are better than him - ronluna

Look at the lists here. He is at the top on many. This just can't be right. Very overrated

It must be Gackt according to the top ten lists here.

73 Slash Slash Saul Hudson, known professionally as Slash, is a British-American musician and songwriter. He is best known as the lead guitarist of the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses, with whom he achieved worldwide success in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

He's a great guitarist, and could pull off amazing solos, but when I see him Nr. 3 on a list of the best guitarists ever, above Santana and Clapton, it just makes me cringe.

He's honestly not that great a guitarist. Great artist but not guitarist

All of you haters out there, go listen to the work he has done with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators, Velvet Revolver, AND Slash's Snakepit.

Slash is cool. He knows his Rock History. Has worked with Iggy, Aerosmith etc. and he partied so hard he has a Pacemaker in his chest.

74 Lars Ulrich Lars Ulrich Lars Ulrich is a Danish drummer and one of the founding members of the American thrash metal band Metallica.

Lar Ulrich is not only a bad a drummer, he is also a jerk. Metallica should have kicked this clown out, not Dave mustaine

Easily the worst drummer in metal.

Obnoxious Fool. Kiss your Hair Bye-Bye, You Poser.

Overrated just like the rest of Metallica.

75 T-Pain T-Pain Faheem Rashad Najm, better known by his stage name T-Pain, is an American recording artist and music producer from Tallahassee, Florida.

Anyone who uses auto tune deserves to die a horrible death. Remember when you had to have talent to make music?

Horrible. Uses auto tune to cover up his horrible voice. Songs were catchy but stupid

76 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne

Why the hell Green Day is there? Avril Lavigne is so overrated. Also she's a poser and she sings, she sounds like a dying goat. I don't know why do people like her life she sings pop, not punk.

Some lyrical ability but marrying kroeger and singing about stuff she did 15 years ago means she needs a new musical direction.

She is a retard with only one or two good songs.

Why is she in this list? She is one of the most underrated not overrated musicians of all time. She has an amazing voice when she sings live and she is no poser.

77 Kelly Clarkson Kelly Clarkson
78 Lea Salonga

The most Overrated musician I know. - hatcher234

She does not have original style of singing. All she does is copy other pop singers like celine dion, or regine velasquues and I hate it that she is being promoted as the next shron cuneta in the Philippines... So OVERRATED.. HATE THIS GIRL.
