In the general category, The Beatles were crowned the nation's favorite, whereas legendary Elvis Presley claimed the second place.

Furthermore, the States placed Beyonce higher than Led Zeppelin, as the mentioned artists claimed third and fourth place, respectively.

    and people wonder why the wolrd is making fun of america...this right here
    I don't think this would be different in any other country, seeing as how the general population listens to beyonce instead of Led Zepellin.
    Four seventh places? That just verifies the Americanity of this list. "Don't cry, it's all about the game and not the resu~.... Tell you what, you can all be #7, as long as you drop that lawsuit you're preparing."
