Who had the most influence on modern music?
I would like to hear opinions on the person or group you think had the most influence on modern music. Please support your answer with relevant information.
Best male singer Michael Jackson because he was known world wide for his successful singing and he was choose to be most successful entertainer of all time by the Guinness World Records.
Best female singer would be Barbra Streisand because she is one of the most commercially successful singer of all time and she sold more top ten albums than any female singer.
They both play a great role in influencing music performers because of their dynamic concerts and show.
Who had the most influence on modern music? That's easy. The Beatles. They took a new, emerging sound from artists such as Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, etc. and made it their own. They used these influences to mold their song writing craft and produce music that has arguably influenced all mainstream pop / rock genres. Not only this, but they also brought this music to the largest possible audience. This new music was reaching more people and affecting them more than any other artist of the time.
Their mark on music can be heard in the works of other artists, from Eric Clapton, ELO, and Led Zepplin to Michael Jackson, Oasis, The Eagles, etc.
An interesting research project might be to read through liner notes, interviews, etc. and actually figure out which person or group has been cited more as an influence. I don't want to be the one to do this though.
I would say the Beatles. They lasted only ten years but are still argued about, profiled, celebrated, and cherished to many fans across all generations. Their sound was unique to the times as well as timeless. They provided a soundtrack that is still relevant now. Not only that but Lennon and McCartney's songwriting helped contribute to them selling 1 billion records over the years. I don't think we'll ever see that again ever.

My opinion is that Michael Jackson was a kid toucher, bottom line. I loved Jackson's music when I was a kid, but when he started bleaching his skin and wearing shin guards, I realized something wasn't quite right with him. ADULTS SHOULD NOT SLEEP IN THE SAME BED WITH LITTLE CHILDREN.Am...

As a musician and music lover, I have grappled with an answer to this question since MJ's sad passing, if there ever will be one.To me, good music entertains us. But great music must inspire and fuel passion within us. It may even change the way we view the world and hopefully for the better. For...
