Elvis Presley and the Beatles were tied for the number three position. Tim McGraw, Lady Gaga, George Strait, Rascal Flatts, Alan Jackson and Frank Sinatra rounded out the top ten. The online poll was conducted in March, with 2,230 adults participating.
In the same poll, U2 was named the favorite band of Republicans, while Dion took the prize for Democrats. Independents preferred the Beatles.
U2 were also preferred by rich people, with the band topping the list for those with a household income of $75,000 or more. The Beatles were the pick for those making less than $35,000. Celine Dion was the favorite for the middle income groups.
