I agree with you mostly. U2 was a huge prog rock band. I didn't think KISS was that popular but I do like their music that I have heard.

I find it unbelievable that no-one has mentioned Toad the Wet Sprocket.
(No, not the later American band of the same name, the UK one, in case there's any confusion.)

I cant believe you didnt list Elvis Presley - oh well, at least someone did. I dont know how useful these lists are, Im sure everyone considers different artists for such a list. Like in yours, it is obvious that you have a knack for rock and alternative rock genre,. Some of those artists are not known to a wider audience though, like Lynyrd, REO or The Ramones. But take Elvis for instance and EVERYBODY knows him, regardless of liking that genre or not.

Well, you've got one the top five acts, anyway (the Beatles.)

I'd say record sales are a decent metric for "The Most Well-Known" -- Unofficial list of best-selling music artists.

. Most Well-Known Musical Artists? Not even close. . Most Well-Known (Classic) Rock Artists? Pretty nice list. I'd add: Boston, Janis Joplin, Jethro Tull, and, of course, Eric Clapton (how did you miss that one? heehee). And that's not even a good start.
Nice list, motorhead are pretty well known here, not sure about america etc. Umm who else...
