Top Ten Music Lists on TheTopTens Where the Number One Items are Number One Items Probably Thanks to Spam VotingSpam voting = one person returns for certain lists day by day to vote for one item and make it number one.
The Top Ten
I voted on that list, and saw the percentages: Rod Stewart 27%, Bob Dylan 9%, Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix and Michael Jackson and John Lennon 7%, Beethoven 5%, and Chuck Berry 3%. Wow. - allamassal
He's not more influential than Chuck Berry - christangrant
He is a fantastic singer but he can barely play a guitar.
Illustration of one of TTT's worst features, the re-mix. A single re-mix done on an older poll can equal 600-800 "regular" votes. Why bother voting at all?V 2 Comments
It isn't spam voting, a lot of people love Freddie, he has a million fans. Michael Jackson gets a lot of votes too on this list.
The spam voter who got Rod Stewart to #1 on many lists, votes for this item every day... - Metal_Treasure
It isn't spam voting. Freddie has a lot of fans in every age worldwide.
He is first in a lot of list: The greatest male rock singers of all time, Best male singers, Best rock singers, Best male rock vocalists, Best vocalists of the 20th century, Best lead singers, Best frontmen, Best singing voices, Best singers of the 20th century...etc. So are all these lists are spam votings?
If this item is first one time, this list can be featured on itself. - AlkadikceV 10 Comments
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%
Could also be that a lot of people like this song...a lot.
Oh, and the spam voter also spam voted (voted up) this pathetic comment multiple times. Wow. - Metal_Treasure
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
Update as of May 2018:
(because phr was exposed in Dec 2017, but didn't stop spam voting, here are % on May 17, 2018):
#1 Hot Legs - Rod Stewart, 35%
#2 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple, 9%. - Metal_Treasure
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
I couldn't agree more - it's extremely overrated but not the worst of all time - Metal_Treasure
Irregardless of whether or not you like Bowie or if you thought that Blackstar was a misstep, to call this the worst album of all time when there is far worse music on the list is ridiculous. I'm sorry. - Gg2000
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%
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%
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%
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%
You willl notice a lot of David Bowie on this list - christangrant
Beatles, Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Queen are all better artists than Rod Stewart - christangrant
Rod Stewart: 20%
Michael Jackson: 10%
Everyone else: <10%
May I say more? - KingSlayer93316
The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Rolling Stones, Elvis and so on do not belong in the list of 200 million, the belong in the list of 300 million sales. So this list is maybe not correct. It's like comparing cars with engines of 2000 cc to cars of 3000 cc. Other category, other list.
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%
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... multiple times.
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
Faces is Rod Stewart band, so nothing new - Metal_Treasure
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%
How come Rod Stewart is being spam voted by the same jackass? - KingSlayer93316
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
Wow, it's already 48%-48% both nr.1 and nr.2... I feel a huge sorry for the creator of the list 'Suzypooh'
Spam voted on basically every list of Best Singers of [INSERT RECENT YEAR HERE], and he is also on Sexiest Male Singers at both #1 and #18. - allamassal
The most spam voted list ever (both 1st and 2nd place got spam voted)
Dimash Kudaibergen 50%
David Phelps 44%
Everything else under 3%
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.
Yes, 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
Just came here from "Top Ten Singing Bassists". After reading your comment, Treasure, I realized that virtually every "singing bassist"-related list has been ruined. I like Blue Cheer, and Dickie Peterson has his talent, but the best? No way! - Gg2000
Dickie Peterson (Blue Cheer) - 29%
Geddy Lee - 17%
The Blue Cheer fan is the spam voter (he did it on other lists, too) - Metal_Treasure
Obviously spam voted, but it's not on a music list
Yes, this has been spam voted. I've seen it. And I know who's the user. - Metal_Treasure
Blue Cheer is over 35%. Virtually every list with something Blue Cheer related at the top has been ruined by spam voting. - Gg2000
This song- 58%
All other entries- 10% and under.
The Blackstar spam voting is much worse than you think. - Gg2000
Home Free- 46%
Everything else- 7% and under.
I just hope that Home Free spam voting isn't on the same level as it is for Dimash Kudaibergen or Jackie Evancho.
Edit: It's worse than I thought. - Gg2000
David Bowie- 29%
Everyone else- 10% and under
I figured that I would stop seeing the imprints of the David Bowie spamdom, but no. I just keep digging up more and more of it. - Gg2000
Rod Stewart and Ron Wood wrote songs together while in The Faces. They are at 38%, while Lennon/McCartney is at 21%, and Jagger/Richards is at 15%. This disgusts me not only because its one part of many cases of Rod Stewart/Faces related spam voting (regulars of this list will know who's responsible), but the user also neglected to emphasize Ronnie Lane's frequent contributions to the band's songwriting. I know I may be beating a dead horse, but the spam voting really irks me, especially because I love the Faces and don't want to see people be repulsed by them due to one user's spam voting. - Gg2000
Grace VanderWall - 25%
Everyone else- 10% and under. - Gg2000
I know because it's my list and a user votes for Coldplay every day.
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.
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.
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
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
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%
41% of the votes... who would believe it's not spam voted?
Same story as on the best music icons list - Hang Geng - 33%, Super Junior 17%, everything else under 5%
I honestly never thought that somebody can hate a person and singer like Jeff Buckley. Because there is no valid reason. There's no logical reason. Until I saw phr spam voting him on bad lists. - Metal_Treasure
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
You know who got this to number 1, I haven't heard of this cover - christangrant
Me neither, and I have listened to a lot of stuff, so I know that's bad. - Gg2000
Thanks, christangrant. You are right - this is my list and the spam voter is, again, phr. I started voting for other items to save my list but I stopped because if spam voters invest their time in spam voting, I have no time to do it every day. And basically, I find it boring. I prefer to do other things that are, I believe, more meaningful. - Metal_Treasure
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
Everything else- 5% and under.
Yep, it's ruined. - Gg2000
Jacob and Jackie- 23%
Everything else- 10% and under. - Gg2000
