VH1 100 Greatest Artists of All-Time Snubs

Recently VHI released their list for the 100 Greatest Artists of All-Time according to a poll consisting solely of other artists and musicians. While the list is fairly comprehensive and the top three are virtually not debatable (3. Bob Dylan, 2. Michael Jackson, 1. The Beatles), there are some major oversights as to who did not make it on the list. Here are some artists who deserved to be ranked the next time the poll is taken.


The Seattle by way of Canada based-band centering around sisters Nancy and Ann Wilson were pure hard rock with a touch of relatable vulnerability. Their hits ranged from gritty guitar rock (“Crazy On You” “Barracuda” “Magic Man”) to sentimental ballads that ensure them a spot in dentist office playlists forever (“These Dreams”). In the testosterone laden era of 70s rock, Heart stood out for being distinct and surprisingly ballsier than most of their peers.
