Vh1 Top 100 Artists Of All Time – List of Greatest Artists Of All Time

Vh1: Top 100 Artists Of All Time list is a major source of controversy on the internet right now. Music fans around the globe can not agree on the list revealed by the TV network. One of the main problems with the list reportedly is the lack of female presence in the top end: Madonna is the only one who made the top 20.

Others consider that Hip-Hop artists are overly represented: 7 of them made the list including Jay-Z at #47 and LL Cool J # 92.

R&B artists like Usher and R. Kelly were completely left out despite their impressive catalogs of hits. Fans of Elvis Presley were displeased to find out that he was only listed # 8.
