What four artists would you put on the monument?

You can use solo artists or individual members of a band. Whoever you think is important enough to deserve such recognition.

You can mix genres or you can make more than one. For instance, you can make one for rock and roll and another for jazz.

Here's mine for rock and roll:

Chuck Berry
Carl Perkins
Elvis Presley
John Lennon

Realistically, to represent the 4 greatest contributors to modern rock/pop music, I would go with:

- Chuck Berry
- John Lennon
- Bob Dylan
- Prince

Four personal favorites I'd like to see on my own personal monument:

- James Brown
- Freddie Mercury
- John Lennon
- Johnette Napolitano

OR, to keep it simple we could just go with:

- John
- Paul
- George
- Ringo

Chuck Berry
Bob Dylan
Aretha Franklin
Bruce Springsteen
