<![CDATA[The Greatest American Rock Bands]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/greatest-american-rock-bands
Some of the greatest bands in rock history are from the United States. While the merits of their musical prowess can be fairly disputed between fans, these rock bands bring a certain American flair and bravado that other bands from different countries don't have. Almost all of the bands on this list should be household names among rock fans and there should be few, if any surprises on this list.

All American cities are represented here. Bands from Los Angeles are the most populous here with bands like The Doors, Van Halen, Guns N' Roses, The Beach Boys, Rage Against the Machine and The Eagles. Due to the grunge explosion in the early '90s, Seattle is well represented. Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains are included on this list. There are metal bands (Metallica), hard rockers (Aerosmith, Alice Cooper), psych bands (Grateful Dead, Phish), punk outfits (The Ramones, Green Day) and even funk bands (Sly and the Family Stone, Prince) that are on this list. If a band is from America and awesome, it should be here.

Vote for the American band you think is the best to come from the 50 states. Pick the band who you consider to be the greatest American rock band of all time. There are plenty of great choices to choose from so you can't really go wrong.

<![CDATA[Make Your Voice Heard: Who Are the Best Female Jazz Singers?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-female-jazz-singers/rockboy
The best female jazz singers in music history have a sound that's like no other. Their melodies and tones captivate us and keep us coming back for more. Many of the women on this list have been gone for decades, but their incomparable jazz vocals will live on forever. Vote for your favorite famous female jazz vocalists and vote down any artists you don't like. Also, if you have a favorite who isn't listed here, add her! You can also rerank this list of top female jazz vocalists any way you like, including all of them or just a few. Enjoy!

How can any list of top female jazz vocalists not include the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan? Their unparalleled talents are indisputable. Once you get into the best female jazz singers' top 10, it's really hard to pick one over the other.

Arguments can be made, of course, that Sarah Vaughan's versatility makes her the best. Some might say that no one can or will ever match Ella Fitzgerald's incredible tone (and certainly her scat abilities). Others would argue that Billie Holiday is not only the greatest female jazz singer in history, but one of the best female vocalists ever.

Some of the best modern female jazz singers include the always wonderful Diana Krall, Melody Gardot, and certainly Esperanza Spalding and yes, even Norah Jones. Norah's sound is more of a jazzy fusion, but she makes the list. Defining a pure jazz singer isn't always easy: Like Norah, some of the women listed here are both jazz and blues. Either way, they're all fabulous, so vote!

<![CDATA[Musicians Who Belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/musicians-who-belong-in-the-rock-and-roll-hall-of-fame
Update:  Nirvana, Peter Gabriel, KISS, Hall and Oates, Linda Ronstadt and Cat Stevens were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2014. Each new crop of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees brings with it with it a good share of controversy. Who is most deserving of being in the Rock Hall of Fame? Vote for the bands and musicians that you think most belong in the Rock and Roll HOF, or make your own ranked list of the rockers who have been left out of the Rock Hall

This list collects artists that Ranker voters and listers think belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but who are not currently inducted. Remember, bands and musicians are only eligible for induction 25 years after the release of their debut album, so popular acts from the late '80s, '90s or '00s would not yet be eligible. Don't suggest them!

<![CDATA[Most Annoying Things People Do in Entertainment]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/most-annoying-things-people-do-in-entertainment/mansmarbles
Spoiler alert: this isn’t all fun-and-games! In life, we have many ways to have a ball to escape from behind the eight ball, but horrible actors can bomb in 3D on this stage.  Whether your preferred performance is the star-studded limelight or curling up with a good book, this song and dance section includes every pet peeve between those extremes. Before we blow the whistle and send in the clowns, face the music by ranking these big screen, show stopping faux pas. Encore!

“I believe entertainment can aspire to be art, and can become art, but if you set out to make art you're an idiot.” ~Steve Martin

<![CDATA[Best Guitar Rock Albums of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-guitar-rock-albums
Remember when sex was safe and motorcycles were dangerous, and every rock song had at least a half assed decent guitar solo, and people were doing real drugs and not bath salts? Well, this is a tribute to the music in a time when America was simply about life, liberty, and the pursuit of SEX, DRUGS, AND ROCK-N-ROLL! That said, guitar rock may not be as popular as it was in the past, but that doesn't mean that in the genre's heyday, there weren't albums that transcended genres, music types and connected with fans from all over the globe. For starters, who can forget the entire Led Zeppelin catalog? Jimmy Page's bonecrunching riffs and Robert Plant's howls brought heavy blues chords to the mainstream while establishing the band as one of guitar rock's greatest bands.

There are so many influential albums and top guitar albums here that it's impossible to list them all right here. But so many of the biggest bands in the world populate this list and all of the biggest guitar players in the world are rightfully present on here. Their mere presence alone means that their particular album is going to rock. You have dudes like Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, Angus Young, Tony Iommi and Stevie Ray Vaughn amongst others whose guitar prowess is showcased on so many of these albums. 

So what are the best guitar rock albums of all time? You'll notice Led Zeppelin II, Are You Experienced and Couldn't Stand the Weather, but there are so many more. If you think something is missing, feel free add that album to this list. Vote and re-rank to how you deem it to be fit.

<![CDATA[The Greatest Musical Artists of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-musical-artists-of-all-time/alan-smithee
When VH1 polled fellow artists to name the greatest artists of all time, it seemed like a good idea---but in reality, the list was truly flawed. According to them, Coldplay is better than Pearl Jam, Mariah Carey is only greater than six artists, etc! Not to mention other impactful artists were left off of the list. So I thought that maybe we try the countdown one more time, only this time with the perspective of true music fans...YOU..

This list will begin in no particular order, you will see some names that didn't appear in VH1's version, no artist appears on the countdown twice, and the order is not my personal opinion (I personally think Bob Marley is the greatest artist of all time). If you don't like how the list looks, you have the power to change it. This list includes some of the greatest female vocalists of the past 10 years, and many of the best rock bands and artists of all time. Many of them are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - and some will be, eventually.

So many questions will be answered with the voting results on this list. Nirvana or Pearl Jam? 2Pac or Biggie? The Beatles or the Rolling Stones? Mariah Carey or Whitney Houston? Is Michael Jackson still the King or is Elvis the true immortal? Is Madonna still the undisputed Queen of Pop? Does anyone rock harder than Hendrix? Are Jay-Z and Beyonce the most powerful couple in music history? It's up to you to decide!

<![CDATA[The Best Frontmen in Rock]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/top-10-lead-singers-in-rock-of-all-time
Giving out the title of best frontman in rock is like crowning someone the king of rock and roll. There are so many factors that go into deciding the greatest front man (or woman) in rock that dubbing just one the head of all rock royalty seems nearly impossible. And yet, like the Highlander, there can be only one.

What makes a lead singer the best frontman in rock? Is it the rock singer with the best stage presence or does being the front man of the best live band in rock history automatically propel you to the top of the list of the best frontmen in rock? Does being one of the greatest singers of all time get you the title of greatest frontman? That's up to the music-loving masses to vote on.

Who is the best lead singer in rock? Who is the top rock frontman ever? Who are the best frontmen in rock? This is the place to vote for your favorite rock singers and vote down the overrated rock singers who you don't think have a place among the greatest rock frontmen. If your favorite lead singer or frontman is missing from the list of the top rock frontmen, make sure to add them and get them in the running for the rock talent ever.
