Greatest Male Rock Singers of All Time


The Contenders: Page 4

61 Julian Casablancas

Julian Casablancas has a truly unique voice. Very beautiful too.

62 Dee Snider Dee Snider

Lead vocalist of Twisted Sister, Dee Snider' s loud, empowering voice, facepaint effects, and personality clash perfectly.

63 Miles Kane
64 Eddie Vedder Eddie Vedder Eddie 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

67 Geddy Lee Geddy Lee Geddy Lee Weinrib, OC, known professionally as Geddy Lee, is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist for the Canadian rock group Rush.

One of the greatest, most versatile and rangy singers of all time. No reason for him to not be in the top 10. Just listen to "The Pass," "2112," "Xanadu," "Tom Sawyer," and "The Garden." He's a legend.

Rush is a great band, but honestly I think the vocals are a bit annoying. So I don't think this should be as high in the list or just in the list at all.

Geddy has to be in the top 10 with Mercury, Plant, Bon Scott.

68 Robbie Williams Robbie Williams

He should have stuck with singing rock songs

He has the perfect voice for rock

69 Patrick Stump Patrick Stump Patrick Martin Stumph, known professionally as Patrick Vaughn Stump, is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, actor and music critic, best known as the lead vocalist, guitarist, pianist and composer of Fall Out Boy, an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois.

It hurts so much to see Patrick Stump at number 91. He is absolutely AMAZING. Even if you're not a fan of Fall Out Boy, you have to admit that Patrick Stump has an incredible voice.

Adam Levine and Patrick Stump should be at the top!

Wow, Patrick is WAY too underrated.

His debut solo album Hesitant Alien was released more.

Gerard Way was the one who always made me happy when I'm sad. He just the most amazing person ever. When it come to his voice to his personality.

Great singer, author, artist, husband, father and just overall an amazing person.

One of the best ever. Rock, and soul, he had it all.

I look at this list and laugh. nobody has the soul of this man. he was an original. everybody on this list learned from watching and listening to steve. just ask 'em!

First comment is absolutely correct. The hero of all grest vocalists!

Unique voice that made Oasis what they are

73 Brad Delp Brad Delp Bradley Edward "Brad" Delp was an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist of the rock bands Boston and RTZ.

I don't understand why he's not in the top 20. He doesn't appear on any list which is ridiculous.

Like to see someone else hit those high notes on more than a feeling!

Boston's late front man deserves to be on this list.

Top five rock singer...#111 is an insult!

74 Joe Elliott

Joe Elliott has such a distinctive, gravelly voice! In his prime his upper register was incredible and the lower register that he introduced on the Slang album was just as impressive!

75 Jack Bruce Jack Bruce John Symon Asher "Jack" Bruce was a Scottish musician, singer and songwriter known primarily for his contributions to the British supergroup Cream, which also included guitarist-singer Eric Clapton and drummer Ginger Baker.

Listen to his extensive work beyond Cream. For starters listen to "never tell your mother shes out of tune", incredibly effortless vocals around high c range, natural phrasing etc.

76 Brian Johnson Brian Johnson Brian Johnson is an English singer and songwriter. Since 1980, he is the lead singer of the Australian rock band AC/DC, with whom he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. As of April 2016, Johnson is not participating in the remainder of the Rock or Bust World Tour due to hearing more.

She was knocking me out with those American thighs... Do I need to say more?!

Trying to sing along with songs I like, The two I Could never come close too was Brian Johnson and Steve Perry! Those two each have a vocal range that Cannot be Duplicated!

78 Robin Zander

Totally underrated, unbelievable range and still has "it" at 62 - just saw him two nights ago.

No one can nail "I Want You to Want Me" like Robin Zander. He shouldn't be number 75.

Just listen to the first album, and gonna raise hell on dream police

79 Joe Cocker Joe Cocker John Robert "Joe" Cocker was an English singer and musician. He was known for his gritty voice, spasmodic body movement in performance and definitive versions of popular songs.

All can say is Soul! Rest In Peace Joe Cocker

Very few singers could overpower a band as big as Mad Dogs & Englishmen. Such an amazing voice.

80 Brendon Urie Brendon Urie

This list is mostly full of older singers. The reason why people like Brendon Urie are this low is because no one will look past legends like Freddie Mercury. I know Freddie was amazing (as I am also a fan of Queen), but some of the newer artists are just as amazing. Brendon has an incredible voice, and I think more people should realize that.
