100 Greatest Artists Of All Time? (Top Story)

.
100 Greatest Artists Of All Time? was a top story in August. Here it is again as we recap 2010: Greatest lists of anything are sure to spark controversy since they are so subjective and there is a new list that is sure to make some spark fly. Strangely the band with the biggest selling album (by a band) in American history is missing from vh1's list of the "100 Greatest Artists Of All Time." But the list does include the likes of LL Cool J and Justin Timberlake (it is vh1 after all).

Apparently the list was derived by a poll of well-known music artists and [so-called] music experts in the industry. And the cable network will count down what they are calling the "definitive" list during a four night special starting on Monday, September 6 at 10/9c with a 2-hour premiere.

According to the press release, 'over 200 musicians including Alicia Keys, Ozzy Osbourne, Sean "Diddy" Combs, Iggy Pop, Nas, Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Geddy Lee (Rush), Alex Lifeson (Rush), Michael Diamond (Beastie Boys), Daryl Hall, John Oates, Noel Gallagher (Oasis), Gene Simmons (KISS), Adam Levine (Maroon Five), 50 Cent, Nelly Furtado, Mandy Moore, Carrie Underwood, Adam Clayton (U2) and many more voted on who they believe deserves this highly coveted title.' At least Diddy and Clay Aiken didn't wind up on the final list [and really does anyone really consider Diddy a musician?]. - see the head scratching list here
