25Tobias Sammet - EdguyTobias Sammet is a German musician. He is best known as the vocalist and primary songwriter of the power metal band Edguy, as well as the founder, main singer and bassist of the metal opera Avantasia.

Mysteria by Edguy contains one of the best screams I've ever heard (intro scream)
This scream is 10-11 sec long, it's complex and it's perfectly crafted. Tobias Sammet - great job! - Metal_Treasure

26Matthew Tuck - Bullet for My ValentineMatthew "Matt" Tuck is a Welsh musician. He is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist in the Welsh heavy metal band Bullet for My Valentine.

I honestly love his screaming it can range from ranges unknown to the naked ear I just honestly don't see how he isn't higher on the list.

28Fred Durst - Limp BizkitWilliam Frederick "Fred" Durst is an American musician and film director. Durst is best known as the vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit, formed in 1994, with whom he has released six studio albums.

His screaming is brutal, mostly on 3 Dollar Bill Y'all$, and that pretty much makes up for everything else that he might lack. Definitely should be higher up in the ranks, especially seeing a couple that shouldn't be there

29Pete Loeffler - Chevelle

Cleanest screams, and best well timed in my opinion... Should be ranked higher, maybe around 10th or so... Band itself, unfortunately! Only downfall, and maybe the ranking, from live shows I have seen, seems to back off on intensity of screams heard on recordings...

Amazing vocals, great range, the ability to sing and scream at the same time makes him sound better than most singers.

Extemely underrated as a singer and the band is also too underrated. He has some of te best screams I have ever heard. Many may disaggree but he is in my opinion better than Ben Burnley. I like Ben but Pete is just a bit better.

33Bert McCracken - The Used

He should definitely be higher up. He should be in the top 3, he's better than most of the people on this list, and if you don't agree listen to choke me, sound effects and overdramatics, box full of sharp objects and listening. He is even better live when he adds in extra, more intense screams.

34Tom Araya - SlayerTomás Enrique "Tom" Araya Díaz is a Chilean American musician, best known as the bassist and vocalist of the American thrash metal band Slayer.
35David Lee RothDavid Lee Roth is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality.

With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .

Second only to Little Richard. Screamers that followed only did so because McCartney (and to a slightly lesser extend, Lennon) did it so well.
