Şarkıcıların takma isimleri listesi
Şarkıcıların takma isimleri listesi, ses sanatçılarına takılan lakapların listelendiği bir maddedir. Takma isimler, dinsel, ailevi ya da aristokratik unvanlardan seçilir. Bu lakaplar sanatçının medya tarafından ifade edilmesinde kullanılır ve sanatçının hayranları için değerini gösterir. Takma adlar Avrupa'da ilk olarak 19. yüzyılda klasik müzik sanatçıları için kullanılmıştır. Bu bağlamda Mozart'a "modern müziğin babası", Bach'a ise "modern piyano müziğinin babası" denilmiştir.
1950'lerde ise Rock and Roll popülerleşmeye başlamıştır. Bu dönemde halkın ihtiyaçlarına cevap veren ve bu müziği en iyi icra eden işi olan Elvis Presley de "Rock and Roll'un Kralı" olarak adlandırılmıştır.
Türkiye'de ise Türk sanat müziğinin önemli isimlerin kabul edilen Zeki Müren "Sanat Güneşi", Müzeyyen Senar ise "Cumhuriyetin Divası" olarak tanınmaktadır. 1990'lı yıllarda yaşadığı çıkışla ünlenen Tarkan ise "Boğazın Prensi" ve "Megastar" olarak bilinmektedir.

An MTV spokeswoman denies that, but the phrase was part of MTV's ads for the video and was repeatedly used by its VJs. A source at Fox confirms that Jackson's people did request that Bart use the phrase "King of Pop" in the video and that the phrase also be used in the network's press releases; "King of Pop" also crops up in Fox's print ads for the video and in press releases by Jackson's publicists, Solters/Roskin/Friedman."
