* Music/DustySpringfield, maybe the most beloved white soul singer in history. Her contralto voice was as strong as any other in the genre, but she could handle all sorts of pop songs, with a distinctive passion to her vocal. From Dusty's body of work, you can see the nucleus for the music of Music/LindaRonstadt, [[Music/{{Eurythmics}} Annie Lennox]]], Music/LisaStansfield, Music/AmyWinehouse and Music/{{Adele}}, amongst others.

* Music/GaryNuman. This eerie, ghostly figure became an icon at the end of the 70s and dawn of the 80s, as not just a big name in new wave, but helping to establish SynthPop, plus an early influence for {{Industrial}} music as we know it today. Musicians all over the popular music spectrum credit Numan as an influence.

* Music/GaryNuman. This eerie, ghostly figure was formerly the lead singer of Tubeway Army, but as a solo artist, when he started running his synthesizers through guitar pedals to make strange, hooky songs (many now classics), he became an icon at the end of the 70s and dawn of the 80s, as not just a big name 80s. He's one of the biggest names in new wave, but helping to establish he's also another TropeCodifier for SynthPop, plus an early influence for {{Industrial}} music as we know it today. Musicians all over the popular music spectrum credit Numan as an influence.


Added DiffLines:

* Music/GeorgeMichael, former vocalist from Wham!, went on to a successful solo career where he became one of the finest contemporary pop artists the UK had to offer; teeming with ambition, blessed with a soft, smooth voice, and up there with Michael Jackson as one of the few teen pop idols to become even more successful as an adult.

* Music/{{Shakira}}, the most popular Colombian musician to ever live, and the only South American singer to ever successfully cross over to the North American market, with her first English album ''Laundry Service'' selling 13 million copies. Her song "Hips Don't Lie" is the world's best-selling single of the 21st century. Shakira has a distinct approach to pop, drawing influence from dance music all over the world. Also, she's a hell of a belly dancer, and music videos as well as live performances are often [[MsFanservice a masterclass in fanservice.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Music/TinaTurner, one of popular music's greatest survivors, sometimes called The Queen Of Rock & Roll. She and ex-husband Ike Turner were a huge force in the genre in the late 60s and early 70s, with strong, gospel-influenced music, and amazing performances from Tina, a first-rate dancer and singer. But when their relationship [[DomesticAbuse deteriorated beyond repair]], Tina struck out on her own, and her massive success in the 80s vindicated her as an icon unto herself. Even into her 70s she could still keep up with dancers half her age.


Added DiffLines:

* Music/{{Usher}}. For a time in the late 90s he was ''the'' young loverboy of hip-hop soul, with those puppydog eyes and an irresistible, yearning vocal. A top-notch dancer, he also showed some notable artistic growth in the 2000s. He also discovered Music/JustinBieber.

* Music/{{Slipknot}}, nine lunatics in masks and prison jumpsuits who took the psychosis of Korn to its most brutal depths, then added some HipHop overtones, doubled the tempo, and won one of metal's most loyal followings (the [[FanCommunityNickname Maggots]]).
* Music/{{Skyclad}}: Although only moderately successful in themselves, their first album, ''The Wayward Sons of Mother Earth'', was the earliest attempt to combine folk music and heavy metal, laying the foundations for the now-popular genre of folk metal.

* The "Holy Trinity" of MelodicDeathMetal, comprise of Music/InFlames, AtTheGates and DarkTranquillity, are responsible for consolidating and popularising the genre, blending the harsh sound of death metal with the more melodic sound of the NewWaveOfBritishHeavyMetal. The later output of grindcore/death metal band Carcass is generally recognised as the UrExample of this style, and, depending on where you draw the line, may be seen as the TropeMaker to the trinity's TropeCodifier.

* WithinTemptation: Started at the same time as Nightwish (though they were oblivious to each other at the time) and is the other "biggest band" in the symphonic metal style, influencing many others, though they went less with the operatic style than Nightwish.

* Music/Neu helped establish the whole Krautrock movement in a very striking way; their style strips rock & roll music of any pretense of structure, preferring to forge ahead with an extremely minimalist sound fueled by what's now called the "motorik" beat (or the "Apache beat"). That is, when they aren't doing dark electronic experiments - infamously, they filled up side two of their second album with songs from side one again, played at different speeds. Punk rock bands, synth-pop bands and any rock outfit that leans on that motorik beat are heavily indebted to Neu!

* Music/{{ACDC}}: One of the largest pub-rock bands and one of the few to gain massive support outside Australia. How massive? They've sold more than Music/TheBeatles and ''Back In Black'' is the world's second best selling album. Probably ''the'' dividing line between hard rock and heavy metal - you don't rock harder than [=AC/DC=] without crossing over into heavy metal.

Angus Young is one of the most instantly identifiable musicians in the world, from his schoolboy outfit to his rock-solid riffs, and the band also miraculously survived the death of original lead singer (the hedonistic Bon Scott), thanks to the recruitment of Brian Johnson, and went on to be superstars.

* Everlast, and his group Music/HouseOfPain. Everlast has quite an interesting, eclectic career, starting with House Of Pain, the blue-collar Irish thugs who were among the few white rappers taken seriously in the mid-1990s (mostly known for their classic party joint "Jump Around" and their seminal debut album). When they dissolved, Everlast bounced back, and, with 1998's surprise hit "What It's Like" pioneered an blend of country, blues and hip-hop that wound up surprisingly influential over the next decade.
