Hilarious list - Janet "nothing special" Jackson ranked higher than Michael Jackson, Madonna "whiny voice" ahead of super-cool Elton John. Cheesy Did clowns make that list? Ha. I'd like to sit down & listen to each Top 20 song to see if they're *really* cat's meow to get there.

I'm assuming this list is how many records, tapes, cds etc the artists sold, not the quality of the product.

I confess to not even knowing some of the songs on the Top 20 list.
If those I know, can't believe that "Betty Davis Eyes" is on it. I heard it a fair amount of times when it was out but not that much. I heard "Endless Love" a lot more times.
Elvis' "Don't Be Cruel" should be in the top 5. It was a huge seller. But it came out before Billboard started compiling its top 100 and top 40 lists.

Replace Usher with the BBs and all will be right in the universe. I'm surprised Jimi Hendrix, The Kinks, The Who, Oasis, Led Zeppelin, James Brown, Parliament/Funkadelic, or The Temptations aren't in the top 20.

A more favorable list for the BBs (oddly in reverse order):

HOT 100 TURNS 60! THE TOP 60 DUOS/GROUPS OF ALL TIME, FROM THE BEATLES TO MAROON 5 & MORE
by Xander Zellner
August 2, 2018
The Fab Four, The Rolling Stones & Bee Gees rank at Nos. 1, 2 & 3, respectively.

As we celebrate the Billboard Hot 100's 60th anniversary, Billboard looks at the top-performing duos and groups in the chart's history, dating to its Aug. 4, 1958, inception.   

With a record 20 Hot 100 No. 1s, logged between 1964 and 1970, it should come as no surprise that The Beatles are the No. 1 duo or group, as well as the top act overall. 

The quartet's biggest Hot 100 hit, "Hey Jude," spent nine weeks at No. 1 beginning on Sept. 28, 1968, and ranks at No. 12 on the recap of the chart's all-time top 600 songs. The group is the only act to ever occupy the entire top five of the Hot 100 in a week, having achieved the feat on April 4, 1964, with, in order from Nos. 1 to 5, "Can't Buy Me Love," "Twist and Shout," "She Loves You," "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Please Please Me."     

Rounding out the top five duos/groups ranking from Nos. 2 through 5, respectively, are The Rolling Stones, Bee Gees, Chicago and The Supremes. At No. 6 is the top-performing duo, Daryl Hall and John Oates. 

Just outside the top 10 is the highest-ranking act whose chart career began in the 2000s: Maroon 5, at No. 11. The Adam Levine-led group's latest hit, "Girls Like You," featuring Cardi B, currently stands at its No. 3 high on the Hot 100. The band has tallied 14 top 10s, including three No. 1s.   

Here's a look at the top-performing duos and groups over the Hot 100's first 60 years.

[...]

10. Carpenters
9. The Beach Boys
8. The Temptations
7. The Four Seasons
6. Hall & Oates
5. The Supremes
4. Chicago
3. Bee Gees
2. The Rolling Stones
1. The Beatles

The Top 60 Duos/Groups of All-Time on the Billboard Hot 100 ranking is based on weekly performance on the Hot 100 from its Aug. 4, 1958, inception through July 21, 2018. All songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with cumulative weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at lower spots earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted differently to account for chart turnover rates over various periods. Artists are then ranked based on a formula blending performance, as outlined above, of all their Hot 100 chart entries.

According to Billboard chart statistics, Chicago is second only to the Beach Boys as the most successful American rock band of all time, in terms of both albums and singles. Judged by album sales alone, as certified by the R.I.A.A., the band does not rank quite so high, but it is still among the Top Ten best-selling U.S. groups ever.

So did Chicago finally overtake the Beach Boys?

Yes, I'm stumbling and I know I play a bad guitar.

Appears so. I would love to know how that is calculated.
