    Candace Owens is not "alt-right". WatchMojo is at its worst when they have absolutely no idea what they're talking about, and it's clear as day here.

    Ok I’m getting fed up with the liberal biased Bull Shit. Candace Owens is a conservative she is not alt right. That statement is a blatant lie. There is a big difference between conservatives, and the alt right. I have unsubscribed from this channel. I’m sick of the anti conservative sentiment I’ve been hearing. I just want to watch a top ten about pop culture, not get subtle messages about liberal agendas.

    Was avicii not like a one hit wonder? There is like literally one "song" I know and well, it is not even great (levels)... Must have missed something, I suppose...
    About X, well, he would likely have gone to prison had he not died and I still do not get how fans of his music still praise him as a human...
    Todays society, right?

    Avicii didn’t only had a hard time because of substance abuse. He was not feeling good mentally but his manager kept on pushing him to perform and travel even though he just wanted to create music. Everytime he was about to go on stage he drank because he felt like he couldn’t do it otherwise. He also had severe stomach issues and was in hospital multiple times because of it.
    RIP Tim Bergling, we miss you

  • The brotherhood of the wolf

    Quincy Jones needs a psychological evaluation.
    Gibson guitars are waaaaay too expensive. Candace owens who is a black woman IS NOT a member of the alt right, or has alt right commentary. And finally, Mac Miller, avicii, and XXXtentacion are not geniuses. May they rest in peace, and Drugs are powerful. Happy new year ✌🏿

    Let me say this about the video. This was rushed. Like really really rushed. Especially your number 1 which is the thing you close off your video with, discussing the deaths of musicians of all genres and the way the video ends is barely 5 sentences long. That is just pathetic even for this channel.
