41BonoPaul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".

Man, are you kidding he # 36, he should be at the least at the top 5.He is such a great versatile singer. He is the best singer in the world. Has anyone not heard his greatest songs like sunday bloody sunday etc, you are a total fool if you don't agree with me.

He had the greatest voice and he is the best live act his music is so magical. I'm shocked that he is not on top 5.

No great words can describe the greatest voice of this universe

Mesmerizing to watch Bono own the audience.

Before Whitesnake, Coverdale was the lead singer of Deep Purple from late 1973 to 15 March 1976, when he resigned from the band and established his solo more.

This TOP 10 list is not needed. The number 1 is is proven over time since long time ago. It should be called TOP 2-10 Greatest Male Rock Singers of All Time after Mick

Mick jagger should be number one and I'm gonna tell why: He is like all vocalists dad because the one that didn't imitated his style imatated someone imitated him. - Juniorxtrm

53Myles KennedyMyles Richard Kennedy is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Alter Bridge, and as the lead vocalist in Slash's current band: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.

4 octaves and 8 semitones of vocal range. Can effortlessly hold notes (at various pitches) for 20 seconds or more. Was picked over the likes of Chris Cornell, M. Shadows, and Ozzy Osbourne to be the front-man for Slash's tour and follow-up solo records. Was asked asked personally by the members of Led Zeppelin to fill in for Robert Plant for a tour. Filled in for Axl Rose at the Guns 'n' Roses Hall of Fame induction. Is currently in an incredibly epic band (Alter Bridge) with the former members of Creed. Has collaborated with singing instructors that have worked with the likes of Axl Rose and Ozzy Osbourne.
Why is this guy not a world sensation?

54Eddie VedderEddie Vedder is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as a member of the rock band Pearl Jam, with whom he performs lead vocals and is one of three guitarists.

I truly think that because Vedder is still alive and Pearl Jam has taken more of a Grateful Dead approach (concerts as opposed to singles), that he remains under-appreciated. For me...definitely top 10.

I'm laughing my ass off...Eddie deserves to be in the top 10 you morons. No one sings with more emotion than the god damn lead singer of Pearl Jam

My ela teacher loves this guy, with Pearl Jam, although because I'm in the 7th grade I'm the onay student know who he is

55Mike PattonMichael Allan "Mike" Patton is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, film composer, producer, and actor, best known as the lead singer of the alternative metal band Faith No More.

Shocking that he wasn't even mentioned till now. Probably the best ever vocalist in terms of versatility and technique. Could sing a vast variety of genres.

56David BowieDavid Robert Jones was born in London on January 8, 1947, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He died in New York on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69, a hero to millions. more.

David Bowie needs to be higher on the list. He was a great singer and one of the most influential musicians that ever lived. He's a legend. So sad we lost him on 1/10/16. I love David Bowie. He really was amazing, inside and out.

How is he not on here! In the words of Sheldon Cooper, I weep for humanity. Although I do approve of Freddie

57Chris Martin

Even if you don't like Coldplay, you can still agree that Chris has a great voice with a huge range. He's fantastic.

Name one person (other than Matthew Bellamy) that can falsetto like him.

The man has a voice made for belting out sweet-sounding melodies.
