    I feel elated considering Elvis a singer from several decades ago making the top 20 list joining the current singers. Isn't it fantastic our man is still very much in it? Don't call him "king" for nothing

    A great list. Lots of rock (instead of that horrible rap en overproduced soulless r&b) and even better, the King in the top 20. I can't believe that Elvis would have been in a list like this in the 70s, 80s or 90s

    I'm an Elvis fan and always will be of course but I'm also an AC/DC fan. I think it's great to see them in the top spot. At least they do actually play their instruments and their music is not manufactured like so many artists today. Elvis.along with with other 50s greats started rock and roll. AC/DC has stated many times that they were influenced by Elvis and the other 50s artists. they may be harder and louder but they rock,which is more than can be said for most bands today. different music for different folks i say..as for me I rock to Elvis and AC/DC...Rock and Roll never dies!

    It just goes to show that Elvis still sells and ranking with these so called stars of today.
    How many on this list really will be remembered after they are gone.There are The Beatles there with him.Two acts from the past that are still going strong...and of course Elvis still ranks above them.............SWEET.
