Top 10 Questions About Musical Artists to Ask People


The Top Ten

1 Paul McCartney or Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson is far better than Paul McCartney. The ultimate battle would be Elvis Presley vs Michael Jackson vs The Beatles (all four of them) - Bronson

That's tough, but I think it's almost like The Beatles or Michael, so I'll pick Paul McCartney - simpsondude

Michael Jackson but I still like Paul McCartney. - cosmo

PAUL McCARTNEY by a gazillion glory miles!

2 Eminem or Tupac Shakur

Pretty much every rap question with Em in it will result in him winning, even if it's someone as great as Pac. - WonkeyDude98

Eminem. He speaks the truth and his lyrics are so inspirational.

Eminem, but both are great. - Brobusky

Tupac - iliekpiez

That's a hard question. They are both incredible bands for sure. I have to go with Nirvana.

Nirvana because they are helped to the rock music. - 05yusuf09

Great Bands But Nirvana For The Win - FettiMC

4 Pink Floyd or Led Zeppelin

Pink Floyd. Many Led Zeppelin songs are rip offs. I used to like Led Zeppelin but when I learned that my favorite songs were rip offs, things changed (Whole Lotta Love, Dazed And Confused, In My Time of Dying, Babe I'm Gonna Leave You, I Can't Quit You, Baby, and many more are uncredited covers). Even Stairway to Heaven has a ripped off section. - Metal_Treasure

Led Zeppelin wins my vote, because their songs have so many great riffs and solos. Pink Floyd is legendary though. - MontyPython

Pink Floyd I've always loved. Led Zeppelin are awesome, but Pink Floyd are magnificent. - IronSabbathPriest

Pink Floyd. I love their music. - Userguy44

Adele is way better, but she's in my Top 3 favorites sooo... - DCfnaf

By far Eminem, he's a much better songwriter than Jay-Z. Jay-Z used to be awesome but after his third album he lost his touch a bit.

Eminem by far. - Brobusky

Easy, Taylor Swift for the win. Great songwriting, not that manufactured shrill American Idol garbage. Carrie does not sell well outside the US because she sucks

TAYLOR SWIFT all the way. She's a real music artist and is NOT a Neo-Nazi!

Tough one since I like both, but Carrie Underwood. - DCfnaf

Carrie Underwood for the win ❤️
