Top Ten People Who Get Way too Much Credit
The Top Ten
Yeah he didn't invent the light bulb that has been established. He more revolutionized the way light bulbs functioned today. And yes Nikola Tesla deserves to be recognized for his work on electricity
Nikola Tesla deserves more credit.
His credit for the lightbulb is a lie. The idea came in 1806 from Humphry Davy and the actually working lightbulb came in 1854 from Heinrich Göbel. In 1879 Edison experimented with carbonfibre for the lightbulb ( that's all he did actually ). He also was a partisan for continuous current while Nikola Tesla was a defender of alternating current. Electricity now works on alternating current wich means that Edison was wrong in a way. He can actually getting credit for inventing a proper working electric chair ( but must we be proud of that? ).
I don't give him any credit. I'm fine with that. - BKAllmighty

He didn't discover America he just went there by accident because he was too dumb
He didn't even discover America. Leif Erikson discovered America before him. And a lot of people think there were explorers before Leif Erikson. - zxm
Just let him stick to being a businessman. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Make him die and you would've done all my birthday gifts in my life
Thank god Hillary is above Trump. VIVA LA TRUMP - Puga
but hey! I'm sure 99.9% of his followers used social media and started hating him!
Decent term as a senator but was the worst secretary of state we ever had.
@AggressiveBlaze - I appreciate most of your comments on this site but this one needs a serious revision because this comment actually proves that Ozzy really gets credits for achievements made by other people.
Iron Maiden music was influenced by Deep Purple, Bruce D. operatic singing style was influenced by Ian Gillan and not Ozzy. Metallica were mostly influenced by Deep Purple and Thin Lizzy.
Megadeth music is fast and is nowhere near the slow Black Sabbath. Megadeth have no blues elements in their music while Black Sabbath were very bluesy - Black Sabbath music was more heavy blues rock than heavy metal.
And last but not least - Tony Iommi and not Ozzy was the main composer in the band. Ozzy can't even read notes and this is a well known fact. Ozzy singing ability? - I don't even want to talk about that. - Metal_Treasure
Yeah,I agree with @Metal_Treasure that iron maiden were influenced by Deep Purple.They started heavy metal.And I also like to say that many metal guitarists of 70s(mostly rhythm guitarists) were influenced by johnny ramone of ramones.His strumming technique was fast down-strokes.Even James Hetfield,Kirk Hammett and Dave Mustaine and bands like Iron Maiden were influenced by him (johnny ramone).But he barely gets any credit. - zxm
He freed the slaves. He deserves the credit - ryanrimmel
He led the country through its potentially permanent split, and re-United the United States of America. Was he perfect or all-powerful? - probably not. But who's giving him "too much credit"? - Billyv
I hate these "revisionist" lists made up by people who think they are so smart that they found out something nobody else did.
People making such lists should at least provide brief statements and reasons for inclusions; make an argument if you believe there's an intelligent point and want your opinions respected. Instead, they just make claims and "thumb down" those who disagree. - Billyv
I agree with ryanrimmel, he freed slaves,if people didn't want to accept it then he had to fight,which he did.the rebels wanted to keep slaves,if he didn't do it then people would suffer - zxmV 1 Comment
What makes David Bowie on this list?
He was one of the most innovative musicians in the music history!
I mean Blackstar is the best album of 2016
And Ziggy was one of the top 5 in the 70's
Unrepentant donut licker.
She licked donuts. - DynastiNoble
She gets credit for being "The New Mariah" I can't stand her, Mariah is better. #TeamMariah - KianaLexi
I don't hate Ronald Reagan, but there was that Iran-Contra Affair scandal where senior officials of the Reagan administration ran a secret project to give weapons to Iran, which wasn't allowed at the time. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
Cetainly not the best guitarist in the world of all time like many people are claiming. Guitarists like Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Angus Young and so many others are way better than him.V 1 Comment
People are talking about him like he changed the world with his music. Really, who are we kidding? So overrated.
He was a pedophile
