Top 10 Coolest People of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Jesus Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4).

According To The Christian Bible, Jesus' purpose on Earth was redemption and salvation. While He was on Earth he healed the sick, brought the dead back to life, forgave sins, died on the cross for the world, and gave us a pathway to salvation. more.

This list is a MAJOR understatement in saying how great Jesus is. He is God. He is our Savior! He suffered a death greater than we could ever realize to save us from our sins! He is almighty and all powerful! He is absolutely the #1 coolest person ever! Cool is a big understatement! There are no words to describe how wonderful He is.

Those who despise Jesus Christ, BACK OFF! It comes to me that you know NOTHING about Jesus! I understand you say that there is only one God, or Jesus is a regular person. But Jesus isn't God GOD. He's God's one and only son, but at the same time, he's a one of the 3 FORMS of God. God told the people that he will be sending a Savior. And that's Jesus. He knew from the very beginning that he had to die on the cross. He knew from the very beginning that he would shed his blood for us. As he was being nailed on the cross, he could've just used his powers and break free, and kill all the people that were watching and laughing at him. But no... He endured it all the way, and died. Then 3 days later, he rose from his death, and went to heaven. This is too much for God and Jesus to do for all those people who causes sins all over the world. But in the end, it was worth the pain. Jesus died and rose again. God's one and only son rose from the dead. If you don't believe or want to believe ...more

He is THE BEST! He is the Lord of all creation who DIED to SAVE us from our own sins, He forgave us despite all the times we've gone against Him. Jesus Christ is forever the Greatest and Most Wonderful!

I've voted for jesus as nobody can beat walking on water and giving his life to save us. But I'm not sure whether what you do makes you the coolest. Its how you are as a person, your body language, your charisma, your aura, how you effect the people around you. Without footage of Jesus I can't say for sure if Jesus is cool. Bruce lee probably is the coolest man of all time, there is footage of him and after reading about bruce lee he is just about as amazing as a man can get and was super cool. Bruces body language, confidence, charisma, aura, the amazing things he could do, how people reacted to him in life, the respect he had.
People can see it with there own eyes. But as I said jesus did some amazing things and is as big as name as bruce lee if not bigger name. So yes, Jesus gets my vote

2 Bruce Lee Bruce Lee (November 27, 1940 – July 20, 1973) was a Hong Kong and American martial artist, martial arts instructor, actor, director, screenwriter, producer, and philosopher. He was the founder of Jeet Kune Do, a hybrid martial arts philosophy drawing from different combat disciplines that is often credited with paving the way for modern mixed martial arts (MMA). Lee is considered by critics, media, and other martial artists to be the most influential martial artist of all time and a pop culture icon of the 20th century, who bridged the gap between East and West. He is credited with promoting Hong Kong action cinema and helping to change the way Asians were presented in American films.

Bruce Lee did cool things in his life. Amazing things in fact as regard martial arts and film. But it's not just what you do.
Just look at him. Look at footage of him just being him. His body language. The aura. The charisma. The energy surrounding him. He is the coolest dude without question. Where is the footage of Jesus being cool? How do we know if Jesus acted cool or looked it?
Actually, I want people to say Jesus is coolest though as it will do my conscience good and bring peace of mind to my mental health.
Vote for Jesus he did good for humanity.

I admire Jesus more than anyone and please forgive me jesus for voting Bruce. Jesus is a bit too long ago, and there's no footage of jesus acting cool and stuff like that.
Bruce lee was the yardstick for cool. He would be cool under any circumstance. Even if a gang ganged up on him, he would be cool and the gang would lose their cool and think twice about mugging bruce for his pocket money, or rolex watch depending on what time of bruce lees life simply because Lee was too cool.

Most influential martial artist of all time. Also a martial arts instructor, actor, director, screenwriter, producer, philosopher and pop culture icon. 'Be water, my friend'

I think one thing so cool about Bruce is that you just need to look at him and you know he is something special when it came to kicking butt.
I remember watching ETD when I was a kid. I knew nothing about him but just seeing the opening fight scene with Samo hung there was an aura about Bruce that came through screen. Can't explain it.
Then I read up on him and he really was that good as I initially thought. Why did I know he was the best without never knowing anything about him.?

3 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce da 5'9") half of the hip-hop duo Bad Meets Evil. Rolling Stone ranked him 83rd on its list of 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, calling him the King of Hip Hop. Including his work with D12 and Bad Meets Evil, Eminem has had ten number-one albums on the Billboard 200 and 5 number-one singles on the Billboard Hot 100, and 13 worldwide.

Personally, I think the coolest person (excluding Jesus, Chuck Norris, Eminem, and a couple others) would be Liam Neeson. He's so cool...

Regardless, Eminem is a living legend and inspiration to many who don't have such nice lives. Eminem IS AWESOME!

Just take a look at an old interview and you'll see, his clothes, the way he talks, what he's talking about, and his history, and his 'I don't give a f' attitude... it's just phat, you know what I'm saying?

He has a unique way of rapping and he is good at really showing off his talent. When he got insulted in 8 Mile, it showed how Eminem was like in rap battles: Personal, fresh, and intimidating.

Eminem is by far the best rapper ever. After listening to Eminem everyone else seems so amateur. Truly in a league of his own. Drake said it best when he said Eminem is "the best MF rapper to ever touch a MFn mic.

4 Chuck Norris Carlos Ray "Chuck" Norris (born March 10, 1940) is an American actor and martial artist. He is a black belt in Tang Soo Do, Brazilian jiu jitsu and judo. After serving in the United States Air Force, Norris won many martial arts championships and later founded his own discipline Chun Kuk Do.

Friend and fellow martial artist Bruce Lee invited him to play one of the main villains in Way of the Dragon (1972). While Norris continued acting, friend and student Steve McQueen suggested him to take it seriously. Norris took the starring role in the more.

Chuck Norris Review:

A fear of spiders is called arachnophobia. A fear of tight spaces is called claustrophobia. A fear of Chuck Norris is called logic

Chuck Norris threw a hand grenade and killed 50 people... Before it even exploded.

Chuck Norris can grab an orange from an apple tree and make the best lemonade you've ever tasted

Chuck Norris is so powerful that he is immune to Justin Bieber

When a zombie apocalypse happens, Chuck Norris doesn't try to survive. The zombies do

Chuck Norris can cut through a knife with hot butter

Chuck Norris caught a cold and threw it off so hard it hit Stalin and broke 3 of his ribs

Jesus can walk on water, Chuck Norris can too- and swim on land. He does karate, is in movies, has his own galaxy called Awesomesauce, stars including the names of Unstoppable, Amazing and Magical. This includes planets called Spectacular, Famous, Bad***, Enchanting and Scary. Also, the world has ceased to recognize Chuck Norris's awesomeness and put his name on every page of every Record Book ever printed. Did I mention that he still hasn't eaten from McDonald's yet? He EATS McDonalds instead.

Chuck Norris caused Pangea to break apart. And he caused the destruction of Pompeii by shouting. He creates hurricanes by sneezing. He makes earthquakes by carting. Bigfoot is Chuck Norris unshaven. Titanic a true story of what happened when Chuck Norris touched a boat.

Someone who can speak Braille, swim on land, roundhouse kick people with his mind, can believe it's not butter, and pick oranges from an apple tree and make amazing lemonade out of it should be higher on this list.

5 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson (Michael Joseph Jackson; August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009) was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter. He passed away from cardiac arrest caused by a propofol and benzodiazepine overdose on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or under the initials MJ. Dubbed the King of Pop, he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. more.

Michael jackson is a musical god he should be number 2 for sure! No one will ever be better than him! I mean arnold schwarzenegger really?! Michael jackson is amazing.

Michael created my personality. I show out and have a glimmering personality, and Michael has triggered that. Love that moonwalk, it is such a thriller and is bad. Pun intended

I love him... I believe he is still alive... Michael if you are reading this please come out of hiding and reclaim your throne as king of pop.

I am a ten year old kid and I love to listen to M.J. and love to dance to, I think he should #1on the list but no one can over come Jesus.

6 Dwayne Johnson Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

Can't say I'm personally a fan but with all the action heroes in the top twenty it is surprising that he's ay back here.

Childhood hero part 2

Dwayne Johnson is a very talented and funny actor.

The rock is very cool

7 Arnold Schwarzenegger Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger is an Austrian-American actor, filmmaker, businessman, investor, author, philanthropist, activist, former professional bodybuilder and former politician.

Put The Cookie Down! Arnie is so cool, and his come with me if you want to live thing is epic, wait, I have to take a break, I'll be back.

President, Strong, Talented, an actor, and probably much more to be seen of Arnold Schwarzenegger, he is an epic human being!

Predator, Terminator, Total Recall. This guy has been in some of the most awesome movies of all time.

His movies and lines are epic. For example I'll be back from like every single one of his movies

8 Will Smith Willard Carroll "Will" Smith, Jr. (born September 25, 1968) is an American actor, comedian, producer, rapper, and songwriter. He is best known for his acting career overall. He has been in many popular movies, These include, but are not limited to, the Men in Black franchise, The Pursuit of Happyness, and After Earth. He is often referred to as one of the best African American actors.

COME ON PEOPLE! Its Will Smith! How isn't the man cool, ever seen men in black? 'the difference between you and me... I make this look good' quote by him, no? Well what about how he is good at dancing, rapping and acting and has an awesome personality

Are you serious... Jesus. I didn't know so much people are still in the Stone Age and believe one person created the whole world. We've changed our way of living, throughout our many years of survival on earth but we can't change our mindset. Disappointing

I love Will Smith in everything he does. He should definitely be at least in the top five for Men In Black, I Robot, and many other things, so I would say he's pretty damn cool.

My favorite person of all time. I own all of his movies except seven pounds, and even all six seasons of Fresh Prince. I have a Hitch poster on my door, So you could say I worship him.

9 Mick Jagger Sir Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

Other than Jesus, this is about the first one I agree with. The rest are all action stars, most of whom wouldn't have a prayer of doing in reality what they do on the screen. Chuck Norris at number four kind of explains to me why our country is so hateful.

Leader of the band and rock icon. He has stood the test of time and gotten several generations to love his music. A great band and a great singer songwriter.

Just watch him dance on stage at the age of 160. He was awesome when he was 20 and he's still awesome right now. The same can't be said about Bruce Lee or Jesus.

This is THE rock god, legend and icon. This man invented rock, to hell with all those other copycats.

10 Jimmy Page James Patrick Page is an English musician, songwriter, and record producer who achieved international success as the guitarist and founder of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

Defined cool during the Zeppelin era - dark, mysterious with a dangerous occult aura. Page by all accounts should have died during his heavy drug phase but came out the other side intact. Connoisseur of guitars and women. Could still snag almost any Woman at 73.

Rock and Roll was Jimmy Page! Legend in, rock style living, gals, all of it... iconic!

Come on guys. Millions of people (me included) would give their lives for a jamming session with the God himself

Just look at him. On stage, off stage, doesn't matter. NOBODY is cooler than Jimmy Page.

The Contenders
11 Kurt Cobain Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his Seattle home in 1994.

"Come as you are, " -Kurt Cobain
Kurt Cobain is the best musician ever. No questions asked. He is the absolute coolest person ever! I think he should totally be number one! Kurt Cobain put his heart and soul into his music. Plus he supported gay rights so that's even better. "I used to be really proud of that fact that I was gay... Even though I wasn't, " he said. Come on, how can you not love him?

Kurt, my man, if you were alive today, I would listen to you on the radio. Why? Nirvana's Boss! Alternative, Punk, Rock, Rockability... How can you not like? I smell like teen spirit! So do U. Rip Kurt your my role model because I play guitar and I'm 9.

There will never going to be anybody as unique as Kurt. There will never be another legacy like Nirvana. 20 Years down the line, and people still listen to Nirvana. Kurt Cobain, all the way!

How can someone who died twenty years ago be the sixth coolest person I the world.

12 Elvis Presley Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) was an American singer and actor. Dubbed the "King of Rock and Roll", he is regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century. His energized interpretations of songs and sexually provocative performance style, combined with a singularly potent mix of influences across color lines during a transformative era in race relations, led him to both great success and initial controversy. more.

Every woman wanted to be with him, every man wanted to be him. A fantastic pioneering vocalist and symbol of sex appeal for generations.

Very talented American singer and actor known as the 'King of Rock & Roll.' He was THE cultural icon of the 20th century who performed w/ energy and sexual provocation. Looked like a Greek god, maybe the best genetics of any human ever

Elvis was and is the coolest guy who ever lived, full stop. This list with elvis at 22 just confirms how inaccurate these polls are. Pathetic!

Not as cool as Jesus, but the coolest guy in American history, other than JFK.

13 Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix (born November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970) was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame describes him as "arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music". Hendrix is consistently ranked on lists of musicians who died too soon.

Greatest instrumentalist in rock history. Pioneered the electric guitar as an electric sound source. Players before him had experimented with feedback and distortion, but Hendrix turned those effects and others into a controlled, fluid vocabulary. Has been copied but never duplicated. Also had phenomenal style. Very cool.

The guy played the star spangled banner with his teeth then set it on fire and then smashed it. He played in an overnight jam all the way till morning at Woodstock. He is widely noted as being the greatest musician in the history of the world. He is noted to be modest, quiet, and humble. He is highly respected by Eric Clapton, Kieth Richards, Chuck Berry, Jack White, and all the greats. If you disaggree him being a cool guy, go worship your crappy Eminem.

Jimi Hendrix is the #1 Rock stat, Rock star = cool! And I want to be a rock supper star

And guy played guitar behind his back and with his teeth he even lit his guitar on fire one times

Yes, behind his back, with his teeth... Try behind your back while using your teeth. I mean, it might sound hard, but you'll get it down one day.

14 Vin Diesel Mark Sinclair, better known by his stage name Vin Diesel, is an American actor, producer, director, and screenwriter.

Guardians of the galaxy, fast and the furious, xxx, riddick. What could be more!

He is a pretty cool actor in the fast and the furious franchise.

The Fast and the Furious, Triple X, Pitch Black and Riddick. He's one cool dude.

His voice is very bad, he should fix his ugly voice.

15 Abraham Lincoln Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865) was an American lawyer and statesman who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in 1865. Lincoln led the nation through the American Civil War and succeeded in preserving the Union, abolishing slavery, bolstering the federal government, and modernizing the U.S. economy. He married Mary Todd and they had four boys, only one of whom lived to maturity. In 1858 Lincoln ran against Stephen A. Douglas for Senator. He lost the election, but in debating with Douglas he gained a national reputation that won him the Republican nomination for President in 1860.

Ended slavery and helped to reunite America. His face is on Mount Rushmore and he is frequently cited as the greatest U.S. President in history. Absolute hero

The only cool one on this list to be honest. I don't care about the rest but getting to meet Abraham Lincoln and talk to him about the modern day would be amazing. The other guys are simply boring celebrities - This man banned slavery and was shot dead at a theatre!

Abraham Lincoln was by far one of our best presidents!

He was one of the best presidents and I had to research about him which was fun

16 Lionel Messi Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi (born 24 June 1987) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club Barcelona. He is also known as one of the greatest football players of all time. He was born in Rosario, Argentina on June 24th, 1987.

Legend. Probably the best player in most widely played sport on Earth and maybe the best sportsman in history. He is at the level of Wayne Gretzky, Usain Bolt, Michael Jordan etc. And why cool? Bcs he always try to keep low profile, doesn't make stupid comments, has respect and is still the young boy who overcame a growth illness.

Though being the best at his thing he's still absolutely humble and true to the sport which is rare for the biggest stars in football.

He's not about the drama or the fame. Yet he's a genuine artist with the ball at his feet. His creativity and dribbles are literally unheard-of.

What are you kidding.. messi's the coolest person who ever existed on this damn earth man.. noe what I'm saying'
Have you seen him play for Barcelona? He's awesome and very good when it comes to football. thank you for keeping him on the list. He should probably be on the no. 1 position as far as I think. Thank You! Good Luck!

Messi is such a great soccer player. I look up to him everyday, he has shown me that you should not give up that you should keep going.

18 Big Daddy Kane Antonio Hardy, better known by his stage name Big Daddy Kane, is a Grammy Award-winning American rapper and actor who started his career in 1986 as a member of the rap collective the Juice Crew.

Needs to be higher

19 David Bowie David Robert Jones, known professionally as David Bowie (January 8, 1947 - January 10, 2016) was an English singer born in London, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He is credited for his experimental and creative musical discography which has won praise and accolades for many critics and fans. The man who the world knew as David Bowie was an actor, a painter, a philosopher, and many other things. But first and foremost, and what he was known for most, he was a rock star, covering every genre from psychedelic folk to industrial. His influence on fashion, music, and pop culture in general remains as his legacy--along, of course, with his unforgettable music.

It's sad that he died. He was an amazing musician. Very iconic and influential and loved by many. Even though he's gone, his music will live on. Ironically enough, a friend and I just watched Labyrinth a few days before he passed away. I was sad when I heard he died and I spent the night listening to David Bowie music. R.I.P. David Bowie. You will be missed.

When he was alive (still not used to using the past tense), I modelled my appearance after him. Everything from his hairstyles and his clothing to the way he stood and spoke. He had this reserved charisma quite unlike that of anybody else.

David Bowie is THE coolest person on Earth. He's also
Not a cop out--didn't OD or kill himself like some people
On this list. He's awesome. He endures. He's unique.
He was born cool and there's nothing else to be said.

This man can wear a Tina Turner wig, fake eyebrows, and the tightest pants in the world and still be considered manly.

20 Paul McCartney Sir James Paul McCartney (born 18 June 1942) is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music.One of the most successful composers and performers of all time, he is known for his melodic approach to bass-playing, his versatile and wide tenor vocal range and his musical eclecticism, exploring styles ranging from pre-rock 'n' roll pop to classical and electronica. His songwriting partnership with John Lennon remains the most successful in history

Greatest songwriter of the 20th century with exceptional talent and charisma. Led the greatest rock band of all time (The Beatles). Wonderful human being who genuinely cares about others.

Honey Boo Boo, Justin Bieber and Skrillex cooler than Paul McCartney? I beg to differ... I can't believe I had to put Paul on this list and he wasn't already on... Is this real life?

He's not my favorite person (or artist) on this list, but last summer, I saw him on his Freshen Up tour. It's amazing that he still has THAT much energy, and is healthy as a horse.

Wrote some of the best Beatles songs, part of the greatest songwriting duo ever. Legend of music, pop culture and human history

21 Evo Morales

This guy is a dumbass!

22 James Dean James Byron Dean was an American actor. He is a cultural icon of teenage disillusionment and social estrangement, as expressed in the title of his most celebrated film, Rebel Without a Cause, in which he starred as troubled teenager Jim Stark.

Seriously a legend! Not only for his acting prowess but for his personality as a whole. Definitely an interesting character. How many people can be famous over 50 years after they died?

There are only two people who have ever walked this earth to have reached the maximum level of cool. Steve McQueen and James Dean.

23 Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart is known as the most honest person in Americanew media and started probably the best news crew in the world, at least for sure the best in america.

He also gets the people to think rationally and have no biases about a situation, all he does is shows you what most news stations wouldn't and tells his viewers the full story not to mention he fights for what's right unlike the junkies at Fox.

He recently resigned from his seat at the Daily show and chose Trevor Noah to take his place, and Trevor really is pretty good idea hope eventually he'll be in the top 10.

Jon is a legend who deserves somewhere at least in the top 5

Honesty is a rare thing now a days. We have become a herd of opinionated brats with little thinking and lots of pride. We need to base our ideas and opinions more on science and less on political views.

Jon Stewart is one of the most intelligent, funny, and honest comedian that had a hilarious way of talking about politics. He should be in the top 10 for sure.

This is a rare show of intelligence by the Top Ten voters, except that Stewart should be even higher.

24 Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age. Since 2009, she has issued an EP and eight albums, including a platinum and gold album, and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts. Evancho's latest album 'The Debut', was her eighth consecutive more.

Yes, the only girl in the top 20, I think "woman" is kind of stretching it. That, plus all the action figures, tells me the average age of the voters on this website is somewhere in the single digits.

So hot that no one could touch Jackie when it comes to song, acting, beauty, ad infinitum.. Does it all in a cool relaxed presence; and will receive a standing O for it.

She's been cool since the age of 8 and gets cooler every year.

She's so cool... She's Hot!

25 Jason Statham Jason Statham is an English actor. He is known for his roles in the Guy Ritchie crime films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, and Revolver.

Why is Statham on #5? And why the hell is Jesus #1? He doesn't even exist, its like putting Odin on the list.

YES... If only he had 5% body fat like Bruce Lee huh... Than he would be number one!

My favourite action star for this modern era... With a very cool acting..

That the villain in the movie I just watched!
