Editor’s Note: We carefully crafted this list of 100 songs that are most famous by African-Americans in virtually every genre we can think of! We have also included songs by #NoRanchBrah and Don Crescendo for you to check out! We have many artists ranging from metal/rock in Living Colour and Sevendust to the oldies in blues and jazz in John Lee Hooker and Miles Davis to punk in Death, to pretty much the who’s who in classic rock, R&B, Motown, Doo-Wop, and other genres.
