If you see anyone over 1,000 subs who we have missed (which is very possible) let us know in comments and we'll add them to the list when we get a chance.
Fritzybeat has included musicians with fully deleted channels in the list, based on the sub count they reached before deleting their account. "Inactive" he has put beside ANY musician, whether their channel is still up or not, who no longer makes pony music, or at least, hasn't made ANY pony music in over a year.
The Honorable Mentions are also a bit different, as that list includes musicians who have made music in the fandom before, but aren't considered "Brony Musicians" (AKA DJ Amaya, Ken Ashcorp, etc...), or musicians who are engaged in the fandom, but don't necessarily make pony music (AKA Michelle Creber, Hey Ocean!, etc...). Also an ** by anyone who does far more than music. If we're missing anyone, as always let us know and we'll update and add them!
Remember that popularity is not the same thing as quality and that there is no reason for being butthurt over the brony community's favorites. We will update this list again likely next year or on the half anniversary.

We have to thank Fritzybeat for pouring over the sub counts of the previous list and for adding many new musicians who are brand new to the list. Also to Freewave for maintaining the yearly BMD list and running FIMM. With nearly 300 brony musicians with over 1k youtube subs there are even more musicians to get to know. See this list for Active and Inactive 2014 Lists. Here's the list from the end of 2013. Here's the prior list from 18 months ago. How times have changed!
