1. John Lennon 2. Elvis Presley 3. David Bowie 4. Keith Richards 5. Kurt Cobain 6. Madonna 7. Bono 8. Bob Marley 9. Joe Strummer 10. Bob Dylan 11. Morrissey 12. Paul McCartney 13. Johnny Cash 14. Liam Gallagher 15. Eminem 16. Freddie Mercury 17. Mick Jagger 18. Robbie Williams 19. Jimi Hendrix 20. 2Pac.

PEOPLE, ALL THE ARTISTS IN THIS LIST ARE GREAT, BUT COULD YOU TELL ME, FOR EXAMPLE, IS KURT COBAIN BETTER THAN FREDDIE?? OR IS EMINEM BETTER THAN FRED OR BETTER THAN JIMMI HENDRIX???
I THINK THIS LIST IS SHIT, ALL THE ARTIST ARE GREAT, BUT THE ORDER OF THE LIST IS WRONG, AND I`M NOT SAYING ONLY FOR FREDDIE

I think something is a little off in that list. #16 is crazily low for Freddie, especially since he's always recognized as being one of the greatest. But every list is bound to be different, because I've seen lots that have him as #1 or #2. I don't usually pay much attention to these lists, because everyone can't have the same opinion of who's the best.

Why do people get so annoyed about such lists, they are only other people's opinions, which, like arseholes, everyone's got one.

Cobain is alight I guess, perhaps a little too high.

But 'Bono' 7th?
What's up with U2 being compared to the top al the time?
Not only is Bono annoying and just plain bad, they don't even have good songs.

is this the Q Icons list?
if so a couple of points worth noting

1. these lists always end up with some slant towards latter-day-johnny-come-latelys who don't merit being there - unfortunately these lists are compiled by people who can only remember the last ten years or so - 5. Kurt Cobain 11. Morrissey 14. Liam Gallagher 15. Eminem 18. Robbie Williams 2Pac all underline this point
2. who cares? it's a fucking list - right - why are some people so defensive of queen? it's not a fucking crusade people!!! life's too short!!! you'll have a coronary fgetting so worked up!!!! or have we forgotten the Electric6 thing from two days ago already?

and Morrissey is just a f***ing clown
grow up!!! get a life!!!

Eminem is on therte because Brian May voted for him - he loves old bleachy-head!

nah, being serious for a minute....if this is the icon list then a white rapper is every much an icon as a black guitar legend (hendrix)

and let's not forget that these lists are laid out as they are to get people talking/debating/arguing

so they succeeded bigtime with QZ

I think the best list I've seen posted here recently was for the top 20 singers ever, and Eminem was about #15. Yes, Eminem is a better singer than Aretha Franklin, according to them. And it was some major magazine....

Yeah, there is no way more people look up to Joe Strummer than to Freddie, or Robert Plant. And where the fuck is Page?

Q are not as bad as Rolling Stone. Rolling Stone made Brian May #39(ironic) for guitarist and David Gilmour #81 that is SACRILEGE! Rolling Stone picked Jack White and Kurt No-Brain Cobain over these legends. Sorry but when Nirvana broke, I was slowly getting into Queen then on the day Freddie passed I played the Greatest Hits album almost every day to the point the tape died!

for those people who think i dont know anything about these artists (2pac/eminem/cobain): you`re wrong!!!
i know a lot about their music, and that`s why i say what i`ve said
im not defending freddie; i say what i want, and you can agree or disagree.
you think this list is builded by opinions, ok, my post is also builded by my opinion, so learn to accept it.
And im defending all the deccent artist on this list: freddie, bono, lennon, jagger, presley, these people are legends, and they cant compare whit people like 2pac or eminem

VERY, VERY CRAZY!
JOHN LENNON? KURT COBAIN? BONO? MADONNA?
MORRISSEY? LIAM GALLAGHER? EMINEM??

FREDDIE IS THE BIGGER, THE BEST.
NOBODY IN THIS WORLD, YESTERDAY, TODAY, SINGS LIKE FREDDIE. NOT EVEN TOMORROW!
TO SING IS ONE THING, BUT TO BE A REAL SINGER
IS ANOTHER THING!
WAKE UP YOU CRAZY ONES!
GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!
