With the death of Michael Jackson and the rush to put his achievements into perspective, the Daily News ranks the top pop culture icons of the past half-century. Where does the Gloved Wonder rank?
(Honorable mentions go to Michael Jordan, Marlon Brando, Steven Spielberg, Kurt Cobain, Bob Marley, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol)

No. 2: Madonna, the Material Girl who ruled the world
During an appearance on "American Bandstand" in 1983, Dick Clark asked an up-and-coming young singer what her career aspirations were. With a smile, she matter-of-factly said, "I want to rule the world."
All hail Queen Madonna!
Twenty-five years, 12 Billboard No. 1 songs, worldwide album sales totaling hundreds of millions and a Golden Globe later, she has ruled with a velvet fist.
Besides her numerous accolades, Madonna has influenced fashion, dance and pop culture for an entire generation. Not bad for a girl from Bay City, Mich.

No. 1: Elvis, The King
No. 2: Madonna, the Material Girl who ruled the world
No. 3: Frank Sinatra, the epitome of cool
