There are plenty of talented musicians in this day and age and many of them have been able to gain quite a lot of popularity over the last few years. The great thing is that while there are a select few of these artists who aren’t as talented as some make them out to be, many of them are excellent at their craft. Here are the top 5 most popular musical artists today.
1. James Hetfield of Metallica deserves lots of mention in this list. He helped to found an entire genre of Metal called Thrash and has created many great songs that have gained much popularity over his 30-year career.
2. Flavor Flav is another popular artist who deserved mention. While his qualities as a musician might come into question, there is no doubt that people all over the world love him. He has been the star of several reality shows, too.
3. Ted Nugent makes number 3 on this list of popular musicians. He is outspoken and opinionated enough to catch the interest of many conservative and liberal news outlets. He also created Cat Scratch Fever, which should be enough on its own.
4. Garth Brooks started a country revolution and has probably sold more albums than any Country artist combined. He also donates a lot of money to charity.
5. Last, but not least, Dimebag Darrell is arguably the most influential Rock and Metal musician on the planet. Sadly, he was gunned down by a crazed fan during his band’s show in Ohio, but his memory lives on.
