<![CDATA[Ranker: Recent People Lists]]> http://www.ranker.com/list-of//people http://www.ranker.com/img/skin2/logo.gif Most Viewed Lists on Ranker http://www.ranker.com/list-of//people <![CDATA[The All-Time Best Rock Bassists]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-rock-bassists
The best rock bassists of all time are a varied bunch, and all the best bassists in rock are on this list. From the hard rockers, to the blues bassists, to the genre crossing masters of four (or sometimes five) strings, this is a list of all the top bass players in rock.

What makes someone the best bass player in rock music? Should the rock bassist with the best stage presence, or the famous bass player with the fastest fingers, or the bass player who's the best singer be considered the "best rock bassist? Should the bass player with the craziest hair should be given special consideration (although, to be fair, at one point or another in their careers, most of the people on this list were bass players with crazy habits, hair or otherwise)? Well, that would probably go under the category of bass player with the best stage presence, but still...

Who are the best bassists in rock? Who are the best bass guitarists? Who is the top rock bassist ever? The top 10? The top 100? These are some of the questions this list of the best rock bassists hopes to answer. If you don't see your favorite bass guitar player on the list, make sure to add them to this list of the top rock bassists so others can appreciate their musical gifts to rock! We can all assume that the top ten people listed here are truly the most legendary.

<![CDATA[The Best Tag Teams in WCW History]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-tag-teams-in-wcw-history/ranker-wrestling
WCW. The only wrestling company that ever gave WWE a real run for its money (so far). In my mind, and I'm sure in the hearts and minds of many, WCW is famous for ridiculous gimmicks, and throwing Ted Turner's money around all willy nilly (example: Glacier). But, WCW was also home to some of the greatest tag teams of all time. So, here's a list of the best tag teams in WCW history.

Tag team wrestling in WCW was always a central storyline throughout the company's valiant run. With a "deep bench", so to speak, of talented wrestlers to pick from great tag teams could just be manufactured out of thin air. Like Sting and Lex Luger, Doom, and Rey Mysterio and Billy Kidman.

Who do you think is greatest tag team in WCW history? Vote for your favorite now and we'll finally figure out just who is the top WCW tag team of all time. Think we forgot a team? Add them now!

<![CDATA[The Greatest Minds of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/greatest-minds-of-all-time/walter-graves
List of the Greatest Minds of All Time, throughout history. This list represents the most influential thinkers across various disciplines, ranked in a way that represents the power of their ideas and their impact on the world. The wisest men and women include top philosophers, physicists, famous poets, thinkers, teachers, physiologists, artists, inventors, engineers, the most irreplaceable CEOs in the world, economists and politicians and those whose talents span across many fields of study.

This list takes a historic perspective, so the greatest thinkers who are included on this list come from many different eras. The greatest minds of the 21st century may be quite different from great geniuses from the distant past, but each person should be judged within the context of the time that they were living. For example, inventing a new type of telephone in 2013 would not qualify one as "the most brilliant mind of all time," but in 1876 when Alexander Graham Bell first patented the telephone, it was an act of genius not seen before.

<![CDATA[Which Celebs Do You Think Have the Lowest IQ?]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/which-celebs-do-you-think-have-the-lowest-iq-/celeb-stalker
Which celebs do you think have the highest IQ? That's a good question! While few of these celebrities will ever take an IQ test and release their results, judging by the dumb things that come out of their mouths from time to time (or ALL the time), we can guess what those results would say. Have a favorite celebrity who you think is just a hair smarter than a box of rocks? Add them or vote for them right here!

It's no secret that beautiful blondes have a reputation for being a little lacking in the smarts department. Between Paris Hilton asking if they sell "wall stuff" at Wal-Mart to Jessica Simpson's confusion over chicken and fish, it's hard for the stars on this list not to play right into that stereotype.

But it's not just the ladies who make us feel really, really, really ridiculously smart in comparison. Justin Bieber, Charlie Sheen, Kanye West, and Ryan Lochte have all done their fair amount of things that make us scratch our heads in confusion.

If you need a little self-esteem boost, a moment listening to these celebrities, who may or may not have a really low IQ, will make you feel like a freakin' rocket scientist. Remember folks, think about the IQ of the average person, then remember half are dumber than that.

<![CDATA[People We Wish Were Still Alive]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/people-we-wish-were-still-alive
RIP to our world's greatest achievers, those who changed the way we live and the ways we thought.

This list of people we wish were still alive includes some of the greatest humanitarians, artists, politicians, and celebrities we wished could have stayed with us longer. These notable dead people often died ahead of their time (some of them are among the celebrities who died in 2013) while others passed from natural causes. Regardless of the cause and timing, these are famous people who died while they still had very much to contribute to the world.

There are myriad great people who died too soon on this list of people we wish were still alive. Among them scientists like Albert Einstein, musicians like Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix, politicians like Ronald Reagan and JFK, and even celebrity personalities like the Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. All these famous dead people left too soon, and left a void most people can never fill.

Who are some famous dead celebrities who should still be alive? Who are the celebrities that died before their time? There are many reasons you might have to vote up your favorite notable deceased person, so make sure to do so on this list of famous people you wish were still alive. If your favorite dead celebrity isn't listed, feel free to add them to the discussion.

If the macabre is your thing, check out the celebrity death pool 2013 to see who the public believes will be the next sad addition to the list of notable people who died too soon.

<![CDATA[The Most Beautiful Women of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/most-beautiful-women-of-all-time
List of the most beautiful women of all time: ranked not on talent or accomplishments, but on looks alone. This is a test to see if the so-called "wisdom of the crowd" will actually be able to determine who the most beautiful woman of all time is. If you'd like to rank these women on more than their beauty, consult The Best Actresses in Film History list. This list does not only include the prettiest current actresses, but the most beautiful women in history.

So, who is the most beautiful woman ever? Of course, that woman may very well be a total unknown, but since it's impossible to list every woman who's ever existed, and one is less likely to rank people they don't know, this list will obviously be restricted to people who've achieved a fair level of celebrity. A "fair level of celebrity" is defined by being famous enough to have a profile page on Wikipedia or IMDB. Historical figures are accepted IF pictures of them are generally accepted as accurate. Add your own suggestions and this should hopefully be an ever expanding list.

<![CDATA[Celebrities Nobody Cares About Anymore]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/actors-nobody-cares-about-anymore/ranker-celebrities
Some of the greatest actors of all time have, in recent days, turned into a bunch of washed-up hacks that would be somehow become more relevant for receiving a Razzie nomination (or seven). No one debates that these actors have made huge contributions to cinema (many of them appearing in the best movies ever made), but recently they've become big stars in big flops. Need examples? Will Smith in After Earth. Harrison Ford in Cowboys & Aliens. K-19: The Widowmaker. Morning Glory. Just take anything starting with "starring Harrison Ford," and there's a good chance it'll stick on that list.

These has been actors once delighted audiences and now revile them. They're funny actors who made dramas and then weren't funny anymore (Jim Carrey); serious actors who starred in comedies and then tried to keep the joke going (Robert De Niro); and actors who ruined their credibility by being constant tabloid fodder (Angelina Jolie). Whatever the reason, these once great actors have become box office kryptonite and should no longer be commanding the multi-million dollar contracts of the highest paid celebrities in the world.

Which actors are no longer relevant in Hollywood? Which actresses are past their prime? When did big name celebrities become irrelevant? This list of actors who are no longer big celebrities is here to provide users a chance to vote for the celebrities no one cares about anymore. If you think there's a celebrity who has faded from the spotlight and isn't on the list, make sure to add them so other users can remember a time when people cared about the comedic stylings of people like Eddie Murphy (R.I.P., funny man).
