<![CDATA[All Iron Maiden Albums, Ranked Best to Worst]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/all-iron-maiden-albums-ranked-best-to-worst
Iron Maiden is considered one of the most important bands in the history of heavy metal music. The British rockers unleashed a brand of music that set them apart from their contemporaries. The band has released 37 albums, with 15 studio albums, 11 live albums, four EPs and seven compilations. Formed in 1975, Iron Maiden shot to fame to in the early '80s after the release of 1982's The Number of the Beast, 1983's Piece of Mind, 1984's Powerslave, 1985's live release Live After Death, 1986's Somewhere in Time and 1988's Seventh Son of a Seventh Son. What makes Iron Maiden albums different from any other band is that their music has received little-to-any support from mainstream rock radio. Yet the albums have continued to sell well over the years, with many achieving platinum and multi-platinum status worldwide.

Since the return of lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith in 1999, the band have undergone a resurgence in popularity, reaffirming their standing as one of rock music's biggest bands. Already known as one of the best live bands ever, Iron Maiden still attracts tens of thousands of fans to their concerts. Their staying power and rabid fans helped them score their first number one album with The Final Frontier in 2010.

<![CDATA[Music Videos Where What Is Even Happening?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/weird-music-videos/jacob-shelton
Since the '80s, music videos have been one of the best ways for musicians to send their music across the world without having to actually tour. For struggling artists, this means their music can be heard in England or Japan without having to actually go overseas. Obviously, thanks to the Internet that’s not such a big deal now, but music videos are still a big deal to musicians, even if they might be some of the weirdest things you've ever seen.

For a lot of musicians, videos are a way to show their artsier side, sometimes for better, and sometimes for worse. Initially, weird music videos were an easy way to stand out among other artists who stood and sang like mannequins, but as the years went on it began to feel like artists were trying to out-weird each other. For proof, check out these bizarre music videos in which, goodness gracious, what is even happening?

From The Eurythmics's Orwellian cow dancing to Lady Gaga’s beer can hair curlers, the strange music videos on this list run the gamut from downright bizarre to really funny music videos that stand on their own with or without the song they’re attached to.

On this list you’ll see familiar artists back to back with bands that you may have never heard of, but that’s okay because they’ve all made some of the weirdest music videos you’ll ever see. Try watching some of the stranger videos without any audio, maybe they’ll make more sense that way.

After you’ve recovered from the weirdness, be sure to vote up the music videos that are the most incredibly confusing and full of all kinds of strange visuals, effects, and imagery.

<![CDATA[The Sexiest Artists of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/sexiest-artists-in-music
If you've got it, flaunt it, and that's what these rock stars do. And for that they've been rewarded with the honor of sexiest artists of all time. Many of these artists have maintained their sex appeal for decades, take Madonna and Janet Jackson for example. Then there's rock gods like Bruce Springsteen and Sting, who still make hearts race during live shows. Many of whom are steaming up a new generation of music fans, while Britney Spears, Usher, and Justin Timberlake grew up with their fan base, artists like Trey Songz, Katy Perry, and Rihanna won over new music fans. And some of whom made your parents (or grandparents) melt with their steamy videos and performances like Elvis (he invented sex appeal in rock n' rolll) and Tina Turner. While some may no longer be with us, musicians like Aaliyah, 2Pac and Leslie Cheung will always be remembered for their massive sex appeal. Rock, pop, R&B, hip-hop, even country--it's all here. Steamy videos are included.

Beyoncé Knowles

Britney Spears

Christina Aguilera

Elvis Presley

Jennifer Lopez

<![CDATA[Overall Best Hip Hop Crew]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/overall-best-hip-hop-crew
The overall best hip hop crews all offer an impressive roster of individual rappers but which hip hop crew is the absolute best? Is it fair to compare the legends like Run-D.M.C. and N.W.A. to G-Unit and Wu-Tang Clan? Will D12 and Public Enemy ever get the respect that Tha Dogg Pound gets? Is Flipmode Squad better than Bone Thugs-N-Harmony? Sound off hip hop fans by voting below for the hip hop groups you feel has the best collection of rappers.

Hip hop music rose to prominence first in the 1970s when groups like The Sugarhill Gang became quite popular. The sounds evolved in the decades that followed with groups like Public Enemy (Chuck D, Flavor Flav, Professor Griff, DJ Lord and The S1W), Run-D.M.C. (Joseph "Run" Simmons, Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels and Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell) and the Beastie Boys (Mike D, MCA and Ad-Rock) dominating the 1980s and ushering in the top 1990s groups like N.W.A. (Arabian Prince, DJ Yella, Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube and MC Ren) and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony (Layzie Bone, Flesh-n-Bone, Bizzy Bone, Krayzie Bone and Wish Bone). All of those groups laid the foundation for hip hop music but does that give them the right to be ranked above newer and perhaps more talented groups that followed?

If you're judging hip hop groups by their sheer number of talented members, the Wu-Tang Clan is certainly among the best. Stacked with rappers like RZA, GZA, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Masta Killa and Ol' Dirty Bastard, the Wu-Tang Clan is easily one of the best rap groups ever.

So whether you're a fan of the likes of Eminem, Bizarre, Proof, Mr. Porter, Swifty McVay and Kuniva in D12 or simply Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter and Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson from The Roots or anywhere in between, tell us which is the overall best hip hop crew of all time by voting for your favorite or adding your top group below!

A Tribe Called Quest

Beastie Boys

De La Soul

Mobb Deep



Public Enemy


The Roots

Wu-Tang Clan
