Spam voting = one person returns for certain lists day by day to vote for one item and make it number one.

The Top Ten

1 Rod Stewart (Top Ten Most Influential Musicians of All Time) Rod Stewart (Top Ten Most Influential Musicians of All Time) Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

He's not more influential than Chuck Berry - christangrant

Rod Stewart has a fan on this site who always votes for him, and this is why he's nr.1 on many lists that's about greatest musicians.

Rod Stewart - 28%
Every Other Item - Under 10% - somekindofaguy

2 Freddie Mercury (Best Singers of All Time) Freddie Mercury (Best Singers of All Time) Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara, 5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Zanzibari-born British singer of Indian descent, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave ...read more.

It's the Bieber voters that vote this, they know where the anti-Bieber voters come from.

The spam voter who got Rod Stewart to #1 on many lists, votes for this item every day... - Metal_Treasure

Metal_Treasure you are mistaken; it's the Justin Bieber voters that think he's the best singer and the sun shine's out of his a...

@phr, You're wasting your time spam voting the same items everyday, why is it worth it to you to vote for this item everyday just for spite? You could do much more on this website you know like make remixes, lists, posts etc, and you could put your favorite artists on the remixes which if you did that I would have no problem, but the problem is you decide to waste your time just to spam vote the same items everyday more than once as both a vistior and as a user. I don't mind if you like any music artist, you like Rod Stewart go ahead and like him but spam voting him on so many lists to number 1 isn't right and it makes voting on those lists unfair.

I also don't care if you like Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, and Foo Fighters, I was never a fan of them and I'm tired of having their fans (mostly Nirvana fans) show me their songs and shoving their love of the band down my throat. - christangrant

3 Hot Legs - Rod Stewart (Top 10 Most Instantly Recognizable Song Intros)

I don't even know this song... - christangrant

Wow, #1 Hot Legs 28%, #2 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple, 10%.
The distance between #1 and #2 is very big. I guess this is a small list - with not many other votes and not enough remixes (it has only 5 remixes). - Metal_Treasure

Hot Legs by Rod Stewart - 28% (strange, most of the lists where a Rod Stewart related item is nr.1 have all 28% of the votings)
Everything else - under 10% - somekindofaguy

4 Rod Stewart (Most Talented Rock Singers) Rod Stewart (Most Talented Rock Singers) Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

He's not more talented than singers like Freddie Mecury, Rob Halford, Ronnie James Dio etc - christangrant

He's talented but definitely not the most talented. And again, since persons like Freddy Mercury, Dio, Bruce Dickinson, Robert Plant, Elvis Presley etc. are on the list, he's surely not the original nr.1 item.

Rod Stewart - 28%
Freddie Mercury - 17% (He's not nr.2 because of spam voters, many people votes for him)
Everything else - Under 10% - somekindofaguy

5 Han Geng (Best Music Icons of the World)

I'm sorry but a Icon of music is not some lame K Pop Group - christangrant

So a Kpop singer is the best music icon of the world who's not even that popular outside S.Korea? Sure. And also, the nr.2 item on the list are 'Super Junior' a Kpop band, and he is a member of this band.

Han Geng - 16%
Super Junior - 11%
Everything else - Under 10% - somekindofaguy

6 Stay with Me - The Faces (Top Ten Headbangers)

To be fair this song is pretty headbangable (i've only heard a Def Leppard cover of it) but it doesn't belong on that list - christangrant

Haha, the fact a song is the nr.1 item on a list that's actually about persons...

Stay With Me by the Faces - 51%
Roll Over Lay Down by Status Quo - 15% (it's also a spam voted item)
Everything else (persons, who's actually the list about) - under 8% - somekindofaguy

7 Black Star - David Bowie (Worst Albums of All Time)

This album is extremely overrated but spam voting it to number 1 on Worst Albums of All Time list is just pathetic it in no way is the worst of all time - christangrant

This comes from the Bieber fans; they know exactly where the anti-Bieber voters come from. - phr

You blame Bieber fans even though you were the one who voted this album to number 1 on that list. - christangrant

Black Star by Bowie - 12%
Everything else - Under 10% - somekindofaguy

8 Rod Stewart (Most Influential Male Singers) Rod Stewart (Most Influential Male Singers) Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

A really stupid comment about him:
'All the Brit rock/pop bands are influenced by Rod Stewart and the Faces.
All the American grunge bands are influenced by Rod Stewart and the Faces.
Not forgetting the British Punk bands.'

Uhm just WHAT? American grunge bands are influenced by Rod Stewart? WHAT? And british punk bands were not influenced by Rod Stewart and the Faces either, they were influenced by '60s garage rock bands and early '70s glam rock acts.

Rod Stewart - 38%
Elvis - 11%
Everything Else - Under 10% - somekindofaguy

9 Yoshiki Hayashi (Greatest Living Rock Musicians) Yoshiki Hayashi (Greatest Living Rock Musicians) Yoshiki Hayashi is a Japanese musician, songwriter, composer and record producer. Better known by his stage name Yoshiki, he is best known as the leader and a co-founder of the heavy metal band X Japan, for which he is the drummer, pianist and main songwriter. The band achieved breakthrough success ...read more.

There are 11 remixes of this list, but none of them mentions Yoshiki Hayashi. Talking 'bout Spam Voting.

Yoshiki Hayashi - 10%
Ann Wilson - 9% (I think she's also nr.2 because of spam voters)
Jimmy Page - 6% (He's not nr.3 because of spam voters, many people votes for him)
Everything else - Under 5% - somekindofaguy

10 Rod Stewart (Artists Who Sold Over 200 Million Albums Worldwide) Rod Stewart (Artists Who Sold Over 200 Million Albums Worldwide) Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

Beatles, Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen are all better artists than Rod Stewart - christangrant

Maybe Rod Stewart sold over 200 Million Albums, but since acts like Beatles, Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen etc. are on this same list, Rod Stewart surely not the original nr.1 item.

Rod Stewart - 19% (There's a comment: "This guy has all the luck. His love and passion for music and his fans catapulted him to the top.") Don't believe this, it's only one user who votes for him every day.
Everything else - under 12% - somekindofaguy

? Sweet Little Rock 'N' Roller - Rod Stewart (Top 10 Cover Songs that Developed the Original Towards Its Logical and Natural Direction)

This list is seriously messed up, this song wasn't on the orignal list by the author, and its not on his remix but it has 32% on that list and everything else is below 20%. - christangrant

The Contenders

11 'Tis a Pity She Was a Whore - David Bowie (Most Offensive Songs)

You willl notice a lot of David Bowie on this list - christangrant

12 Smash - The Offspring (Most Important Albums in Rock History)
13 Stay with Me - Faces (Best Rock Song Intros)

Faces is Rod Stewart band, so nothing new - Metal_Treasure

14 David Phelps (Top 10 Male Singers With the Most Powerful Voices)

This is my list - the spam voter is a user with 3 accounts (votes with all 3 and also logged out). The user wrote about 100 praising comments about David Phelps (anonymous, of course). And then voted them up...
As of Dec 30, 2017:
David Phelps - 32%
Luciano Pavarotti - 14% (and I've been voting for him from time to time trying to fix this list)
Freddie Mercury - 11% - Metal_Treasure

15 Absolutely Live - Rod Stewart (Best Live Rock Albums)

Oh yes, this list is seriously ruined despite it was remixed 8 times and item #1 isn't on them.
#1 Rod Stewart, 21%
#2 Deep Purple, 8% (Made In Japan)
#3 The Who, 5% (Live at Leeds) - Metal_Treasure

16 Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley (All Time Worst Cover Songs)

Another reason the person who voted for this is a hypocrite he claims there's too much hate yet he voted this to a high number on that list. - christangrant

Yes, I think phr would think now some users hate him because of this list... no, I wasn't even the first who discovered these spam voted lists, there was around 20 other users who discovered about phr's spam votes and they told me. And how do we know phr is the one who spam voted them? Fortunately, because the site is showing every votes on the feed and if a registered user did then it writes his name either. - somekindofaguy

Yeah, phr is a hypocrite - this user is blahblah-ing about "there's too much hate in the world" but the same user has been spam voting Jeff Buckley on many BAD lists. And phr demonstrates hatred by spam voting other people on other bad lists, too. - Metal_Treasure

17 Coast to Coast - Overture and Beginners - The Faces (Best Live Albums)
18 Coldplay (Top Ten Music Artists with the Most Plagiarism) Coldplay (Top Ten Music Artists with the Most Plagiarism) Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist). Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed ...read more.

I know because it's my list and a user votes for Coldplay every day. - somekindofaguy

Note: this one is not very false, Coldplay plagiarized a lot indeed. But it's here because it's my list and I know they weren't the original nr.1 item and I know who voted for them everyday. - somekindofaguy

This list is a fight of Led Zeppelin fans against Coldplay fans, they are voting against each other, one day Zepp's on top, the next day Coldplay. Funny really.

19 Blackstar - David Bowie (Worst Albums of 2016)
20 No Plan - David Bowie (Worst Albums of 2017)
21 Foot Loose and Fancy Free - Rod Stewart (Best Albums That Sold 10-19 Million Worldwide)

This time the spam voter even got to #2 another Rod Stewart album. There are 3 more Rod Stewart albums in the top 20. By the way, I know who is the user.
#1, 31%, Foot Loose and Fancy Free - Rod Stewart
#2, 12%, Atlantic Crossing - Rod Stewart
#3, 10%, Like a Prayer - Madonna - Metal_Treasure

22 BABYMETAL (Best Asian Metal Bands)

Babymetal is surely a very popular band but it wasn't even in top 5. Then suddenly it went so high in one day. A lot of votes in one day. Other items like Artcell, Boris, Abominable Putridity etc are popular in their own countries. And by judging the two remixes of users, everything is fine on the list. The author even crossed Babymetal in his remix. But its still on top of the list. - zxm

23 Dickie Peterson (Best Bassists With Lead Vocals)
24 Philippines (Countries With the Best Singers and Bands)

There are 300+ comments, but I'm afraid most of them are by only one person (or a group of filippino people who decided to spam vote the list).
Also, there's no remix where Philippines would be so high, so it's 100% a spam voted item.
Philippines - 32%
USA - 12%
UK - 11%
Everything else: Under 10% - somekindofaguy

25 S.O.S D'un Terrien En D├ętresse - Dimash Kudaibergen (Top 10 Most Emotional Pop Songs)

41% of the votes... who would believe it's not spam voted? - somekindofaguy

26 Han Geng (Music Artists With the Best Dance Songs)

Same story as on the best music icons list - Hang Geng - 33%, Super Junior 17%, everything else under 5% - somekindofaguy

27 Jeff Buckley - Grace (Worst Albums of All Time)

The one person who votes for this claims that this list is a hate list, yet all he does is spam vote this on the list of Worst Albums of All time, he was also the person who voted Black Star by David Bowie to Number 1 on that list. just pathetic... - christangrant

28 Angel - Rod Stewart (Jimi Hendrix) (Top 10 Cover Songs Better Than the Original)

You know who got this to number 1, I haven't heard of this cover - christangrant
