100 greatest artists?? Everyone else listed above in the top 10 is listed as a solo artist (Lennon, McCartney..no Beatles) and Queen is a band...confusing poll result. oh wait, Queen was that guy with a moustache who died of AIDS. I forgot. My bad.

Engelbert Humperdinck is my all time fave.
Followed by Elton John and Ivor Biggun, not too far behind.

That makes no sense.

Artist? Surely that implies an individual rather than a group, which is what the glaringly obvious omission of The Beatles seems to also suggest. Also Queen is the only group in the top 10 anyway.

Was this list compiled by one of those anuses who thinks Freddie was Queen?

That reminds me of a little incident involving my nan the other week.
We were round her house, and... it being a little dull, I normally take at least a few CDs with me. Anyway, I brought along NOTW, and my brother took the album sleeve, showed Nan the picture, and asked if she could name who they were.
Her response:

*she points at Freddie* "Oh yes, he was Queen,"
*then points at Brian* "And that was his friend."
(totally ignores Rog and John...)

actually i think it's because they never show any beatles videos because there isnt any (exept stuff from the rooftop). but apart from that it is coincidence that Queen is the only group. I can asure you that VH1 uk know that Queen wasnt just freddie. They have a Queen day at least every year.

If only VH1 in the US could have a list like that... I'd throw a two week party. :-(

I know what you mean. Instead, We get 'The Best Week Ever'... :/

'The Best Week Ever' is utter crap. Give me 'I Love the 80s' any day! Or at least some BTM that is not on:
a) Beyonce
b) Britney Spears
c) TLC

Come ON. I want my Queen VH1 Legends on again... those were quality shows. I also want to see AIDS: A Pop Culture History again. I watched that one probably 7 times and I thought it was intense and powerful.

I loved Queen: Legends! I taped it way back when, and watch it every once in a while. I wish it would come on again, So I can re-tape it. I missed part of it when I taped it. :/

I'm glad someone finally realized Madonna is a better artist than Paul McCartney or David Bowie!

Yeah, my nan's a total sweetie. Always does things like that, bless her.
And she thinks Queen are pretty good, too (even if she does know nothing about them!)

Saying that, my 13-year-old brother once sang an impromptu one-man version of Bohemian Rhapsody to her (I honestly can't remember why, though it did sound very interesting/ amusing) and once he had finished she said:
"Wow... How did you remember all those songs!"

I hear you rhapsody. I would be joyous if the U.S. actually liked Queen still and looked past the fact that they were a, "gay band." I used to think VH1 was pretty good, but now all they've got is Stuff on Aaliyah, TLC, P.Diddy. Basically rich people that i'm jealous of. Anybody watch the FUSE channel? I have to say thats a great music channel, at least for my tastes.

Elvis is #1??

For God's sake. How long would it take for people to realize that Elvis was a fabricated act. He didn't have the best voice, he couldn't write his own songs, he could hardly play the guitar. So pretty much all the attention he received was based on his looks, and moves.

It's sad that for 50 years we've been calling 'The King Of Rock N' Roll' to a man who had just about as much talent as any member of a media puppet boy band.

And the worst part of all... NO BEATLES!! YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!!

So then you can truly say that The Beatles were the kings of rock since Elvis sure isn't! I never realized all those things until you just brought it up, Mr.Jingles!

Sounds like our Freddie ...

I heard Freddie's songs were ghost written by Mary Austin.
