I was curious to find out what people of today look up to in terms of Music Role Models...as wide ranged as i can think of...sorta
Wow, good work, you managed to forget Eminem!
Such a narrow list that is.
You should just remove the poll. Seriously, there's too many.
Got it in one!

Oh no however will I live with myself.
i looked at this poll and immidietly thought...
wots micheal jackson doing up there!!!
Tupac Amaru Shakur....
John Lennon - Got shot by one of his fans...
Michael Jackson - Was recently on trial for child molestation.
Kurt Cobain - OD'd and died.
Beyonce - She's too trashy .
Freddy Mercury - Who?
Chris Martin - Who?
Aretha Franklin - Who?
Alicia Keys - Who?
Avril Lavigne - A poser-punk that likes to moon her fans.
You've probably compiled a list of the worst role models in the music industry in the last ten years - I'm rather proud of you. Lemmy Kilmister gets my vote .
In terms of MUSIC, not their personal lives or iconic styles:
John Lennon - never heard of him.
Michael Jackson - yes, disregarding his personal problems, he is the king.
Kurt Cobain - Heard of him, but not familiar enough of him to comment.
Beyonce - I don't really like her music, there's nothing special about it that stands out.
Freddy Mercury - Never heard of 'em.
Chris Martin - Never heard of 'em.
Aretha Franklin - She's close to MJ, but not quite.
Alicia Keys - She's pretty good for being in
Avril Lavigne - I've never liked her music, it's not something that sticks out in my head, her songs are easily forgettable.
- Overall, MJ then Aretha, then Alicia.
I choose Beyonce.... I like her style but I dont like the music...
i didn' see Quorthon in that list
maybe you passed him by accident
add him too
none of them
I can't believe no-one knows who Freddy Mercury was! You know, singer in that band Queen?
Not that I like Queen. No, I'm sticking with Lemmy.
Well I was kinda shocked too! Even I was only like... 3 years old when he died, but still, I know him! Come on, that man was a legend!
Right on, Lemmy is mystery.. he should have died years ago
Where the hell have you been?
Hiding in a cave?
How the hell can you not have heard of John lennon, Kurt cobain, freddie mercury
Aw, ow sweer, Michael and Avril seem to have received pity votes from someone...
(Or, at least, I hope they're pity votes... )
Lead singer of Queen? The only "hardcore" group known to have had every member with a PHD in something... Intellectualites...
So yea, I went with Freddy.
lol - alright, so not quite the right wording...
i meant, the first non-goody goody group
Role Model is different from best artist or best song.
For me, U2, with Bono. Maybe too much ego, but still has a head screwed on, very easy to listen to, respectable, good music, good style.
What a list? Aside from Kurt and Aretha , where is anyone on that list who's actually been through any hassle for their music or changed anything through it?
I'm thinking, people like
Ian Curtiss (Joy Division)
I don;'t see how Avril Lavigne or Chris Martin are idols to anyone....
Didn't OD. Took a shotgun to his head if I remember correctly.
Anyways, there should have been people like Eric Clapton on the list.
