somekindofaguy
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 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

2 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

3 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.

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

4 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

5 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

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 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

8 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

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

9 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

10 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

#3 The Who, 5% (Live at Leeds) - Metal_Treasure

19 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.

#2, 12%, Atlantic Crossing - Rod Stewart
#3, 10%, Like a Prayer - Madonna - Metal_Treasure
