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.|
|ogre t raylot
|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.
|learn to ignore these type of lists... there s at least one every month.|
|OH MY! The lunatics are running the asylum! So what!
These lists do not mean a thing...don't take these lists seriously and get a life! Please!
|and where is bruce springsteen?and michael stipe?|
|The Fairy King
|The man's dead, the show's over, let's all grab our coats and leave...|
|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!!!
|Youd be even more pissed off if he wasnt on there at all!|
|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 agree, and yes i posted this news, but THESE ARE Q MAGAZINE readers, so don't take 2 much into it......polls are polls...and will never changed.......Freddie was the best, period! IMO........|
i'm not defending queen...fucking jackass
what im saying is that this list is wrong
i think there are peoplo who dont deserve to be there: eminem/2pac/morrisey/cobain
but i agree; yes, it's just a god dammed list
but i had to say it
and if there are people in this forum who get angry because these kind of commentary, just shut up, or dont read it fucking idiots
|there all crazy, you have to be a real dope to put out a list like that. cobain in front of fred. there just wannabes.|
|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?|

You are so militant, it's sickening. There is no right or wrong in such things. Your opinions and musical preferences are IN NO WAY BETTER OR MORE VALUABLE THAN ANYBODY ELSE'S. Liking Queen or Freddie is not an ideology (at least it shouldn't be), for christ's sake. Get a life.
|I WOULD NOT GET TO UPSET ABOUT FREDDIE NOT BEING IN THE TOP 5 OF VOCALS. ITS JUST SOME WORTHLESS CRAPPY CRIDTIC POLL ANYWAY. WE ALL KNOW IN OUR HEARTS OF WHERE FREDDIE STANDS.RIGHT??? FREDDIE WILL ALLWAYS LIVE ON !!!!|
|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
|Why should anyone learn to accept your opinion, as long as you act as if your views on music were more valuable than those of the poll-voters ? It's you who can't accept that lists like these are little more than a pure matter of taste. Instead, you're acting as if putting certain artists on that list was morally wrong. Where are these rules which categorally tell everyone whether one artist is better than another ? Did you set them up ?|
|VERY, VERY CRAZY!
JOHN LENNON? KURT COBAIN? BONO? MADONNA?
MORRISSEY? LIAM GALLAGHER? EMINEM??
WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?
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!
|Lists are made based on OPINIONS people! There's no point getting riled up because it's all trivial. That does sort of bum me out that Freddie's so low, but as someone mentioned, it's written by people who can't remember anything past 1990.
American VH1, for example, had a list, 100 Greatest Rock Guitarists - Brian wasn't even on there. 100 Greatest Album Covers - Not one Queen album. 100 Most Shocking Moments in RnR - Freddie's death made it to 77.
We know in our hearts where Queen and Freddie stand. Others don't. All we have to do is just smile and nod.
|Perhaps they based it partly on record sales..?
I never trust polls because they aren't really based on popular opinion, just what sells. And the people who started the poll originally -- too much partiality. Next thing you know, they'll say Lenny Kravitz is better than Jimi Hendrix! *snicker*
|Jean Luc 2000
|At least Robbie Williams didn't get mentioned so it has some credibility.
Nearly all the people mentioned there justify there being there, I'm just not sure on the order of rankings though.
The only person there that really doesn't deserve to be there is Bono. God, if I wanted to listen to Irish music I'll listen to the Dubliners, and not U2's bland run of the mill rubbish.
|there is no way that richards should be in front of Freddie and no way that richards should be in front of Jagger
i firmly believe that someone has to be around 10 years until they're put on a list to show that they have staying power. although, while I am not a fan of rap, it seems like he does what he does well
i think freddie should be further up in the list
bob marley? come on
|What I always find amusing is how the same magazines/TV shows redo their same lists every few years, and each time they're totally different.|

VH1 America said Nirvana's Nevermind cover was better than the Dark Side cover, sacrilege. Pink Floyd and Queen despite selling many records are underappreciated as opposed to crap like Britney!
