    Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails, How to Destroy Angels)
    Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Then Crooked Vultures, Queens of the Stone Age, ex-Nirvana)
    Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures)
    Neil Peart (Rush)
    Les Claypool (Primus)

    The first three are based of musicians that I really like and are talented, the last two are based off raw talent. The first three are set in stone, but a bunch of other people could have taken the last two spots, like Eddie Van Halen, Slash, Randy Rhoades, Geddy Lee, or pretty much any metal drummer.

    Mike Shinoda
    Chris Martin
    Trent Reznor
    John Frusciante
    Matt Bellamy

    Yeah, frontmen of my favorite bands, and Frusciante, can't really think of a guitarist that comes close to him. Or, actually, that I appreciate more than him.

    From bands:

    Mike Shinoda (of Linkin Park)
    Chris Martin (of Coldplay)
    Alex McMillan (of Razor Red Noise)
    Jared Leto (of Thirty Seconds To Mars)
    Dan Smith (of Bastille) cause his voice is fucking awesome

    Composers:

    Martin O'Donnell (known for: Halo Series)
    Hans Zimmer (known for: Inception, The Dark Night Trilogy, Man of Steel, and others)
    Ramin Djawadi (known for: Pacific Rim, Medal of Honor Series, Game of Thrones)
    Neil Davidge (known for: Halo 4)
    Jukka Rintamäki and Johan Skugge (Known for: Battlefield 3 & 4)

    I cheated a bit on that last one cause it seemed like Jukka and Johan were given equal credit on the soundtracks and did equal work for them, too.
