I think his death should be a lesson to everyone else. Live your life the best way you can. He may have made a lot of dumb mistakes in the past, and he tried to better himself and get past those mistakes. But by then, it was too late and his mistakes finally caught up to him.
Kinda reminds me of the movie Menace II Society where the main character does so many stupid things throughout the film, and right when he was about to finally take the first step to become a better man at the end, his mistakes catch up to him and he gets killed. That movie was way more powerful than some people make it out to be because it portrays the harsh reality we live in.
Be the good guy people. You owe it to yourselves.
X's death was truly devastating there are no words to describe how sad his death was. Also, to all of you sick and disgusting people out there who are commenting that you are glad he died you are repulsive. It's people like you who are messing up this world. I mean, I get it if people are not fans of his music, but saying that you are glad someone died is the worst thing you could do. Besides X was not a bad person. He had ALLEGATIONS against him. As in, nothing was proven. Also, X was making up for his past. He was an inspiration and a huge role model to many kids out there. And yes, he did have some songs that were a little intense, but many of his songs were very deep and sent a message to everyone everywhere. He had so much potential in him and was on the road to becoming something great. He was an example that we all have pasts, but we have to leave them behind and focus on the future. He died way too soon... Long Live.
Devastating. Ignoring his music, this man was younger than I am when he was shot. What a senseless act of violence. A robbery is a crime, sure. But okay, people may have their reasons for why they are in need for money. But gosh, murder is just... it's horrible. And it was so unnecessary. They could have just run off. Just run off with the money and let him live in peace. Onfroy was not a hero. No, he wasn't. And he was not a villain either. He went through bad things and did bad things - he was difficult. But in any case... a murder... damn.
Apart from the crime itself... I liked his music. This young man was arguably the most promising newcomer within the last year. His album "? " was a roughly emotional experience whose major quality was that it sounded more unpolished and much less staged than other hip hop, pop and rock projects in the mainstream. I really think he could have become one of the leading figures of the scene - I felt so even before he was shot. He wasn't ...more
In some way he deserved to die because of what he did to both his own wife and child.
This should be number one. Avicii's music was and still is innovative not just in the electronic realm but to music as a whole. He struggled with the pressure of fame all throughout his career so much that he had to drink to cope and retired from touring before unfortunately taking his own life in April. I highly advise everyone watch his Netflix documentary "Avicii: True Stories", especially all the fans of a rapper this year who was an abuser and then tell us who's death will impact the music industry as a whole for years to come. RIP Tim!
"One Day You'll Leave This World Behind So Live A Life You Will Remember"
I've looked into his personal life, and it turns out that Avicii was actually struggling with depression and anxiety years before his suicide. In fact, he quit touring in 2016 due to how overwhelmed he was, and he was given medication and surgery. From the looks of it, Avicii was a broken, sad man, like Chester Bennington (Who also unfortunately took his own life a year prior).
I won't be listing all musicians who died in 2018 but a young man's suicide is a particularly bad event. And very sad.
Just like XXXTentacion's murder, I don't see how this is a bad thing. Avicii made the most generic Swedish EDM ever.
Shame. And this disgraceful practice has been going on for too long. Rap, jazz and pop singers don't have to be nominated at all because they are not from the the genre of Rock and Roll. Iron Maiden should have been inducted long ago.
Rap and pop singers that were nominated for induction in 2019 include Janet Jackson, LL Cool J, Rufus featuring Chaka Khan. What these guys did for rock music? Nothing. While Iron Maiden did. A lot.
I don't even like Iron Maiden. I like other classic rock bands. All these main stream rappers suck, except for Eminem and lecrae. Modern day rap is the worst thing that has ever happened to music.
I feel like this is a little high on the list I don't agree with this but in the end it is only a decoration it is not really that big a deal.
I love Iron Maiden but how is this worse than X and Avicii's deaths?
What a hypocrite! This doesn't change my opinion at all because I already knew he was a horrible racist sexist sociopath, but this is still pretty bad. Seriously, Trump supporters! You still find ways to defend him after this! "Oh, he didn't choose to play it". Yes he did! Seriously, people. I respect your opinion if you really like Trump for some reason, but why can't you see all the terrible things he does each and every day?
He didn't even choose to play it. It was the people who ran the event that played the song. So try not to put this on him..
He is a complete idiot and obiviosly doesn't know what he's doing.I mean literally killing hundreds of people. Ugly head ass. Still can not believe no one tried to kill him.
And Trump supporters will still worship him or find a way to defend him.
I like Tool, but how was this bad? They released Fear Inoculum like one year later. Death of music artists are below this? I get it, breaking a promise for a new album is annoying, but it isn't worse than music artists who died and Dahvie Vanity raping women.
Don't worry... Only 10,000 days left until the release!
This has been happening for at least 10 years...
They're still together?
Unfortunately, we are stuck with Justin Bieber. Bring back Rush!
Coming from a black person, I never had any problem with another race saying that word as long as they don't mean the racist version of it.
Coming from a black person, I don't mind letting someone say the n-word as long as its not used for insulting.
Oddly enough, Kendrick Lamar is on my good list of 2018, too, for winning a Pulitzer Prize.
The word by itself is not racist. Context matters.
Awful (as usual). Very similar to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominations and winners. I don't even wanna start. But at least in 2018 the winner was a metal band (many non-metal bands won metal Grammys before). However, in 2017 there were much better metal releases than Mastodon's "Sultan's Curse".
Legendary band. We will miss you Slayer
This was really disappointing to me.
RE "How was this not already included on the list? "
To avoid any misunderstanding I have to say that there were already lists focusing on musician deaths in 2018 - Top 10 Musicians Who Died in 2018, Most Shocking Music Moments in 2018. Aretha is at #1 on the first list.
Here I wanted to focus on other things but I don't mind if people add sad musician deaths.
Now THIS should be #1. Not XXXTentacion's murder. XXXTentacion was nothing but an abusive manchild who deserved to die, while Aretha Franklin was a legend.
How was this not already included on the list?
I wonder what Marilyn Manson thinks?
This must be a huge exacerbation, no one can be more successful than The Beatles were
why is this bad?!
she's amazing and I respect everyone's opinion, but unless you have a valid reason to hate her, I would hope you keep that to yourself and rather than hating on her, just politely not say anything and move on! please don't come at me but take this into consideration when you comment on something :)
How is this one of the worse things?
How is this bad?
She's the worst

Chicago is the name of his 3rd child (girl) after also weirdly named North West and Saint West...
"- Hi, Chicago West here!
- The plumbing company? "
OK, whatever makes you happy Kanye and Kim...but I think what you do is very egotistical.
This isn't a "music moment" in a pure form but it's music-related because Kanye is very popular and for many people he's a role model. Not for me but he's got many fans world-wide.
Judging by how he called his kid Saint West and Chicago West, he might be taking insipiration from Pete Wentz here.
As Pete Wentz has named one of his kids Saint Wentz, and Pete is also from Chicago (or at least Illinois- I don't know many places since I'm British not American).
The German pop star jumped off a cruise and has since not been found. He was 33 at that time. I may have not been a fan of his music, like not at all, but this is truly heartbreaking. He was one of the first androgynous and openly gay German celebrities I knew. Extremely likable guy, spread positivity and tolerance. We don't know the reasons why he jumped, so let's not speculate here, out of respect.
This should be ahead of items like Billie Eilish or Carrie Underwood. Which are not necessarily bad.
Israel is a terrorist country. Change my mind please. Just look what they're doing right now
Wait what? I like Imagine Dragons, but they're not my favourite and I am not an over-obsessed person with this band and I listen to their songs once weekly. I listened to their new album, it wasn't bad, it was good. I hate a few songs, but at least give it a listen, it doesn't disappoint, especially songs like Burn Out and Natural.
This just reminded me Imagine Dragons released an album this year. I had completely forgotten that that album exists
Commercial band that recycles the same song over and over again.
He's the worst
This tape had the infamous Bohemian Rhapsody cover...
I hate this. The sad thing is that people know more about this than about metallica
That song eventhough meant for kids is annoying. Why is it popular among the interns
I hate this sing
Worst meme ever
I never liked Sean Paul. He always sounds the same.
It deserved to be snubbed. The album was terrible.
Good! Taylor Swift does not have talent at all.
Her best album snubbed. The grammys suck
