Michael Jackson, Pink, Late King of Pop's music video 'Thriller' and AC/DC have topped the poll conducted by MySpace. The social networking site announced the Top Music of All Time on October 7. It included top ten list in different categories like the best music videos, female artists, male artists and bands.

Late King of Pop Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' has been named as the best music video on MySpace. The video was released in 1983 and has remained a popular music video. Lady Gaga's (feat. Beyonce) 'Telephone' has claimed the second spot while number three was taken over by AC/DC's 'Long Way To The Top'.

Singer Pink has been selected as the best female artist. The list saw Madonna being pushed to third spot by newcomer Lady Gaga, who was placed at number two. Britney Spears and Mariah Carey made it to fourth and fifth places respectively.

Michael Jackson has been named as the best male artist and singer Justin Timberlake came in at second place, outranking the likes of Bob Marley, David Bowie and Bob Dylan. Kanye West came in at number four while Elvis Presley made it to the list at number 6.

Australian rock band AC/DC has been named as the best band in the world by MySpace. American rock band Nirvana has got second place followed by Red Hot Chilli Peppers in third place and the Beatles in fourth. Surprisingly, the Rolling Stones failed to make it to the top ten bands.

However, a list of 25 nominations for each category was prepared by MySpace and music critics earlier this year. Later, fans were encouraged to vote for their favourites online. These results demonstrate just how diverse MySpace's user base is and highlights Myspace as an entertainment destination that caters to all tastes in music.
