181 Fred Durst Fred Durst William 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.
182 Randy Meisner

All the great singing Don Henley did for the Eagles and you're going to put Meisner ahead of him for one note? I like Meisner, and Take it to the Limit is a great song, but come on...

Listen to the last line of Take It To The Limit...where I think he hits a high G#. And this is within his normal singing range...not falsetto.

183 John Kay

Sorry, the lead singer of Steppenwolf HAS to be in this list! Born to Be Wild? I mean, come on!

Just listen to anything by Steppenwolf (Born to Be Wild, Magic Carpet Ride, Hey Lawdy Mama), then tell me this guy doesn't belong at least in the top 50. Honestly, his is the first name I thought of when I saw this category.

184 Don Henley Don Henley Donald Hugh "Don" Henley is an American singer-songwriter, producer, and drummer, best known as a founding member of the Eagles before launching a successful solo career.

The lead singer of the Eagles for all of their best songs, like Hotel California, Desperado, Wasted Time, Life in the Fast Lane, Best of My Love, and many others, plus has had a great solo career unlike any other Eagle...

If a guy who sang three songs for the Eagles is on the list, probably their best singer should be on here too...

185 Bob Seger Bob Seger Robert Clark "Bob" Seger is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and pianist. As a locally successful Detroit-area artist, he performed and recorded as Bob Seger and the Last Heard and Bob Seger System throughout the 1960s.

Do I really have to explain this one? I'm adding him on and he should be top ten. The category is best ROCK singer, right? Nobody rocks like Seger.

186 John Cougar Mellencamp
187 Chris Martin Chris Martin

I like Coldplay, but to me Chris Martin is a ballad singer not a rock singer. Nice singer, and I enjoy their music, but he's one that I just think doesn't fit this category.

188 Lauri Ylonen Lauri Ylonen Lauri Ylönen is a Finnish singer-songwriter, best known as the frontman of the Finnish alternative rock band The Rasmus.
189 Ian Astbury
190 Lita Ford Lita Ford Lita Rossana Ford is an English-born American rock guitarist, vocalist and songwriter, who was the lead guitarist for The Runaways in the late 1970s, an all-female rock band formed by Joan Jett and Sandy West. In the 1980s Lita Ford embarked on a solo career.
191 Phil Collins Phil Collins Philip David Charles "Phil" Collins is an English singer-songwriter and musician, who has also worked as a record producer and actor.

Genesis is the bomb and he is a great singer for Genesis not as good as Peter Gabriel though.

192 Papa Emeritus (I, II, & III)

If you guys haven't heard of Ghost, you are missing out. The whole band is phenomenal at what they do and are VERY talented. The singer, who is now Papa Emeritus III, is truly an amazing singer. It's been the same singer for each album, but he pretends to be a new satanic priest for each album, hence why he's "III". His stage presence blew me away, can't wait to hear more from Ghost in the near future! - Dorito

193 Phil Anselmo Phil Anselmo Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo is an American musician who is best known as the former lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Pantera. He currently is the vocalist of heavy metal bands Down and Superjoint Ritual.

197 Buzz Osborne Buzz Osborne Buzz Osborne is an American musician, and composer. He is mostly known for the lead vocalist of the American Sludge Metal band "The Melvins".
198 Tom Meighan Tom Meighan
199 Russell Allen Russell Allen
200 Chuck Billy Chuck Billy Charles "Chuck" Billy is an American vocalist, who is best known as the vocalist for the thrash metal band Testament.
