Top 10 Best Music Artists of the 21th Century
This is the best band, man. Amazing voice, Chester, and great rap by Mike. They have many rocking songs like Numb, In the End, New Divide, What I've Done, Faint, etc. This band deserves first place. Those who didn't vote for this band are not humans at all. They don't have taste.
These guys have brought a new genre to the world that is Linkin Park. This is the only band which can give you any taste of music. If anyone is a fan of music, then he should know Linkin Park. "Respect Linkin Park" if you are music addicted.
This is not the expected result! It is agreed that 30 Seconds to Mars is a great band, but Linkin Park is the best rock band ever, not only in the 21st century but also since rock music was originated! Linkin Park is No. 1!
MARS owns the 21st century, having released their second album 'A Beautiful Lie' containing hits such as 'The Kill' and their third album 'This Is War' with hits such as 'Kings and Queens' and 'Closer to the Edge'. They've more than proven why they are the best.
Their second album 'A Beautiful Lie' consists of rock hits. Songs like The Story, The Kill, The Fantasy, Attack, A Beautiful Lie, Was It a Dream, R-Evolve, and other songs as well like A Brand New Name, and Hurricane. I'm not surprised they're voted the best rock band.
This guy is the best-selling artist of the 21st century, so therefore he should be #1. For 5 years, he had problems with drugs and his best friend being killed. He had 3 classics in a row, 2 of them becoming diamond albums and has even won an Oscar for Best Original Song. And there are people like Bon Jovi and Michael Jackson who haven't done anything in the 21st century and are above this talented guy.
Almost every single rap artist looks up to him. He dominates the game in every aspect: Lyricism, beat, and tone. Because of this, he is the greatest selling rapper of all time, which is made even more impressive by the fact that he is in a genre composed mostly of African Americans, who often don't buy his songs purely because he is white.
First three albums were amazing, yes. Encore wasn't that great but still alright. Relapse, I think, was his worst album. I mean, there were a few good songs like Beautiful, Underground, Crack a Bottle, and 3 AM, but the rest of the album was just funny voices which made it bad. But I think Recovery was up there with his earlier albums. He really brought it back with that album and I can't wait for his next album due this autumn.
Always the best.
What is this? Green Day is an awesome band and one of the best artists in the 21st century. No one compares to them. They just rock. Their songs are so meaningful and full of emotion. They just rocked the '90s and the '00s. Their lyrics, song, music are so good. Albums like American Idiot, Dookie, 21st Century Breakdown are one of the best rock albums in the present era!
Green Day are the best band ever, end of. By the way, where are Queens of the Stone Age, The Strokes, Biffy Clyro, Weezer, on this list? Also, A7X should be higher up. Syn is an amazing guitarist. Yes, Green Day!
Who can compare Green Day with other bands? They are far better than any other bands of the 2000s or even the 90s as well. Both their original as well as live albums are boombastic!
Michael Jackson is recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by Guinness World Records. His contributions to music, dance, and fashion, along with his publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture for over four decades. I love you, Michael!
There is no current artist that even comes close to his genius and progress in modern music. #1
How is he not in the top three?
She is not famous for just a single day. She was the best in the '80s, the best in the '90s, the best in the 2000s, and continues to be. Chithra is the best of the century in the truest sense.
She started her career with the best performance, and it continues...
How many bands today can compete with these guys? How many of you can look cool when wearing Matthew Bellamy's bling jackets without being called suck? Haha.
I'm sorry, why is Muse 6th on the list? They are the best band overall on this list and deserve more respect.
The first band to ever sell out the new Wembley Stadium? In my opinion, the best band since The Beatles!
Coldplay simply is one of the best bands of all time. They easily have 15 songs I adore. No other artist has that for me.
Currently the best and the most popular band on the face of planet Earth.
Not only the best band on this planet but the best artist!
If you want raw talent, stick with bands like Arctic Monkeys, Muse, and Kasabian.
"Brian... top marks for not trying!" They deserve top 3 for the accents alone! Haha.
This is the band that seems to have won more Brit Awards than anyone in the 21st century so far, at 5.
Metallica has been the best from the start of its career. I never knew a band named 30 Seconds to Mars before TopTens. Slipknot should also be on the list.
What's amazing is how much this band has not changed. Look at Guns N' Roses, as well as many other bands, and you'll see, if they are still releasing albums, then they have changed a lot. Metallica has not changed all too much.

Kanye is the GOAT in any century! Go back and listen to his massive discography. You can't compare him to people who make 1 or 2 decent albums. Redo the entire list.
Listen to his catalogue. It shows the growth of the modern-day 21st-century young adult on his quest to take over the world. What an artist.
Why is he only at number 47? He should be in the top 5 at least and deserves to be number 1!
The band is set together between Maynard James Keenan (Vocals), Danny Carey (Drums), Adam Jones (Guitar) and since 1995 Justin Chancellor (Bass).
The band is known for their influences from electronic sounds and their overly complex and strangely structured songs.
They released their debut album... read more
The music contains so much detail and some of the best lyrics ever to be written, best band of the 21st century, without a doubt! Personally, I think it's sad that so few people understand this music and give it the time it deserves.
She has been doing it for 15 years now and is still one of the top performers and one of the best vocalists of this decade. We have all seen new girls on the scene come and go! Bey is always here showing why she is QUEEN!
Beyonce has dominated music for almost 15 years. She has had hit after hit and remained humble, kind, and generous. She's the greatest of my generation, hands down. THE QUEEN!
With a cartload of awards accomplished within this period and counting, Beyonce always keeps herself at the top of her game. She's irreplaceable.
She is also is one of the best-selling artists of all time. She won 4 Guinness World Records, 5 MTV Awards, 5 American Music Awards, 16'ASCAP Pop Music... read more
Best-selling artist of the 21st century.
So many great songs in such a short time. Should be top 10 of this decade.
They rock too! Just saw them live. And yes! They should definitely be on this list.
She's the best! Amy Lee's the whole package. She's cute, she has an incredible voice, and their lyrics are so meaningful! Just amazing!
I love Maroon 5, especially Adam. Great band. (And admit it, Adam is hot.)
I love Maroon 5 a whole lot, even sexy Adam Levine. You guys are the best at pop. I think they are better than One Direction. You rock, Maroon 5.
