Hey, hey…did you know that the Monkees outsold both the Beatles and the Rolling Stones in 1967?


I wish I had a screenshot of this, but I don't: Michael Nesmith posted on Facebook about five years ago saying this was a false fact he told a reporter back in the day just to see if it would be reported or if they would fact-check it. Now it's passed into legend and accepted as a true statement.

Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley, Otis Redding, Chuck D and Morrisey make the list, but for some unfathomable reason James Brown doesn't.

Not sure what their criteria really is here.

93 Paul McCartney
“Our Paul” as a whole generation of British people, mainly old women, curiously, called him, is one the greatest songwriters ever, and a singer gifted with an Angel’s voice, and the star of the greatest band of all time, Wings — no, I’m kidding! The Beatles, of course! But he only gets on our list for Wings, which had some superlative rock songs, and one of the great rock albums, Band on the Run. The Beatles liked to think of themselves as a rock band, and probably were when they were playing covers in Hamburg, but really, as the immortal group we know, they were a pop group. The best ever, without a doubt. And Paul, unlike John Lennon, was awkward, and in fact highly unsuccessful as a rocker. But on Band on the Run he propels chest cleaving songs like “Let Me Roll It” and “Jet,” and the title song, which is almost exactly like a good Beatles song, only rockier. I also loved “Picasso’s Last Words (Drink to Me).” Venus and Mars was great too. After that came… “Mary Had a Little Lamb”? Did it come before? Whatever. BGJ

So Paul with the Beatles was a "pop star" but Gwen Stefani and Morrissey are actual rock stars? Give me a break.

And somehow "Helter Skelter" and "Get Back" don't count as "successful" rock songs. Should someone tell him that "Picasso's Last Words" doesn't really rock at all?

I’m not an Elvis fan, but if he qualifies to make the list (he’s #100), he should be in the top 10, if not top 5.

I'm right there with you on that. Not a fan of his at all, but Elvis was pretty much the template for all rock stars.

But we're talking about a "Greatest Rock Stars" list that has Gwen Stefani and Morrissey on it, and not James Brown.

As the vocalist and lyricist of The Smiths, Morrissey is of the most influential and important performers of the past 30+ years. I’d far rather listen to him, and most relevantly, The Smiths, than James Brown. I’d wager he’s had more influence on contemporary acts than James Brown, also. Brown and his Famous Flames shaped Michael Jackson, though; and Jagger did like his dancing. It’s all subjective, isn’t it?

There's a lot wrong with this list. Eminem? Madonna? The Go-Gos guitarist (ok maybe Rock'n'Roll, but no way cracks the top 500)?

Was Lou Reed in there? Maybe I missed him.

Ridiculous. Stick to porn Guccione.

The pioneers should of course occupy the top ten positions. Like Chuck Berry, Elvis, Little Richard, Bill Haley, Fats Domino, Jerry Lee Lewis and so on.

Oh my, where to unload on this list. I'll let the person who wrote this article say it best: "The problem with lists like this is they are invariably bullshit. So our prime objective was to make sure we didn’t do a bullshit list." Which you proceeded to then completely do, Mister Bob Guccione Jr. (BTW, is Bob senior the Penthouse guy?)

This list is to rock stars as a bicycle is to a fish. There isn't a shovel large enough to deal with the bullsh*t being spread here.

Exactly. I've heard of Morrisey but have no clue what he looks like or any of his songs. I'm sure there's some American musicians on here that Brits/Europeans don't know much about either!

And Jimi Hendrix opened for them in Charlotte, NC (and a few other dates I believe)

Elvis was a phenomenon when he was young but quickly became irrelevant. Other than those first few years, he has no place at all on this list, at least no more than Liberace would. Hence, position 100 seems like a favor to someone who "has" to be on the list but who sold out to show business a long time ago. Personally I probably would not have even listed him.

Elvis Presley is number 100 and Sid Vicious is number 74? How are you supposed to take a list like this seriously?

This list is a big troll. Don't feed trolls.
