61Chris DaughtryChristopher Adam "Chris" Daughtry is an American musician and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the rock band Daughtry and as the fourth-place contestant on the fifth season of American Idol.

He should be number one. Stunning range and can make any song sound good.

Ahead of Seger and Fogerty. Good Lord.

62David 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. ...read more.

His voice just gets better and better with age, though he's always been amazing. He is the Starman who came to meet us, and did indeed blow our minds.

David Bowie... at number no. 75! What! His voice is simply the most wonderful thing in the world. No one comes close to David Bowie! He is so cool!

How could anyone ever mistake David Bowie's voice for someone else's? Unique and fantastic. - bathroomangel

Should b in the top 4

65Adam LambertAdam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

The best male voice in music today. Superb performer. Won't compare him to anyone on the list. He is unique and truly special. His range, power, and performance are truly remarkable. I have seen many of the singers on the list including Adam Lambert and Adam Lambert is the best live performance I have ever seen.

Adam truly is the Freddie Mercury of this generation, proven by the fact that Queen chose him to fill in for Freddie when they won the world icon award.

Adam Lambert not only can outbelt the best of these rockers, including even Freddie Mercury, he moves and looks the part as well. On stage he is riveting and electrifying, while seeming to be singing to just me, he connects so completely. A vocal powerhouse with the richest, most beautiful tone to excite and exhilirate, Adam also croons ballads to melt the most hardened of hearts and moves the most jaded to tears. Check his performances with Queen or covering Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bono, all the greats on YT to see and hear for yourself.

Adam needs to be higher. he's amazing!

You can listen to any song by skillet and when the dude starts singing your like oh my god he's really got it how blessed and talented never heard a voice like his.

His voice is perfect, it's raspy and sexy

67Klaus Meine

Way too far down on the list. Should be a lot closer to the top.

Just wonderful voice. His voice screams out "hot love" like nobody else.

Klaus should be in top 10 if not top 5. So should
Ronnie James Dio & Jon Anderson

Should be in top 5 without a doubt

68Geddy LeeGeddy Lee Weinrib, 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.

#82 is nuts geddy is insane. I would love to see most of these people hit geds notes. Not only can he sing very high but he portrays the lyrics emotions very well. I feel that the only reason he is down this far is because half of these people haven't heard of Rush and are definitely.

2112: Overture / The Temples of Syrinx / Discovery / Presentation / Oracle: The Dream / Soliloquy / Grand Finale!... The Necromancer, Tom Sawyer, A Farewell to Kings, Here Again, and... Many more

Geddy Lee has an amazing voice and age has not changed it. We saw Rush live a couple of years back. There was no front band the whole show was Rush. They may be getting up there in years but they can still rock with the best of them. I would put him and Steve Perry (Journey) at the top of this list.

Is voice is little bit of thin but isn't a bad singer - zxm

Operatic, emotional, diverse- three words to sum this behemoth up

This is rediculas that he is not top 5 all time his voice is. Obviously one of a kind

One of the greatest rock n roll voices of all time should be in top five

He is a very unique vocalist. I have never heard anyone like him. I would recommend listening to unfortunate snort on YouTube because it really shows off his vocal talent and his uniqueness. The rev sings lead for all of the songs because it was a side project with guitarist synyster gates called pinkly smooth.

The rev is the best back vocal and also best drummer in the world I will miss you the rev, foREVer

75Anthony KiedisAnthony Kiedis is an American singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers, which he has fronted since its inception in 1983.

This is complete crap. Has anyone on this website even listened to Soul to Squeeze, Give It Away, Snow, Brendan's Death Song, or Otherside?! All of you are crazy. Anthony should be AT LEAST number five. All of this is my opinion of course.

What a unique an amazing voice! I can't believe he is on number 26! He must be in the top 15
He must be up there! He simply rocks! He has the voice of an angel!

There is something about this man and his amazing voice that I can't get enough of.

He should be in top 10 not on 75

78Brandon Boyd

Boyd has the most improved vocals for sure and I cannot wait to see where he goes from here his range and tone are phenomenal.

nothing compares to brandon boyd live, youtube 'under my umbrella RAR 2005'... flawless

Listen to If Not Now, When? To hear his soft, ballad tone and then listen to Rogues to hear his more rock, "umph" tone. Both are beautifully different and yet complimentary.

79Tim McIlrathTimothy James "Tim" McIlrath is an American punk rock musician. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist, songwriter and co-founder of the American punk rock band Rise Against.

One of the greatest voices I have ever heard in my life. He might not have an outstanding vocal range or something like that, but the emotions he puts into his singing and his absolutely unique vocal style makes him one of the greatest singers I know.

the best vocalist in the world, but in 48? this is impossible he must be at least in top 3.. His unique voice, he awesome technique to write songs, he best the best in the world

He is easily top 5 if not #1. His unique voice and inspiring music alone are the best I've ever heard. I've listened to plenty of bands. Best artist and singer in the world if you ask me.

He has a beautifully deep and sonorous voice!

80Scott WeilandScott Weiland is an American singer, musician, and composer for the American grunge band Stone Temple Pilots.

Best rock vocalist of the 90's and 2000's. Every catchy song and melody that you sang to in those days was sung by this guy. Top notch writer and could sing ANYTHING. Top 5 material for sure.

Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin) is the greatest, but Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots) gets my vote here.

Scott Wetland is top 5 that dude can sing his ass off

December 3, 2015. Sad day in music. RIP Scott.
