101Greg Lake

Greg Lake is literally the voice of Progressive Rock. Hid work with both King Crimson and ELP helped define the genre.

His voice is just amazing and always moves me. He's my favourite vocalist.

Listen to Epitaph and tell me he's not a top 20?

102Roger WatersGeorge Roger Waters, is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He was mostly known for the secondary lead vocals and bassist of Pink Floyd .

One of the most epic voices in the history of rock music. Nobody can match the voice of George Roger Waters.

Gilmour has a much more beautiful voice, but I can't find him here... He really should be higher than Waters.

So underrated, should be higher

Best of the best

103Mike ShinodaMichael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

His voice is so beautiful and he is amazing, I mean he raps like nobody else and he can sing soft too. Every time I hear him singing I feel the emotion from his voice and it's so deep. His raping is meaningful, powerful and very different from what we hear nowadays. Mike should be at least in top 20.

He's such a good vocalist, Listen to songs like In Between, Hands Held High and when raps in songs like In The End, Bleed It Out, etc. Or some of his songs in Fort Minor.
Mike Shinoda Is my favorite vocalist, he can rap and sing in a delicate mode and it sounds great all the time

104Kellin QuinnThis is a redirect from a person who is a member of a group to a general, related topic, such as the group name, organization, ensemble or team of membership.

I think most of these list are accurate going through this list. This might not. I am 13 I love kellin Quinn but even I know Elton John. Should be in the top 10 not 115th he is a classic. He has been playing before I was born probably before my parents where born. But kellin Quinn is my favorite vocalist his voice is amazing. But his whole band is great what's a vocalist without it's band. Congratulations. Your my favorite

Kellin's vocal range is huge. He is so amazing. He may be teased just because his voice is higher than most male voices, but that's what makes him unique.

I wouldn't go so far to say he's the best here, most of you haven't heard some of these other people!

Kellin has the range of a thousand axl's. He should be top 10

105Sebastian BachSebastian Philip Bierk, known professionally as Sebastian Bach, is a Canadian heavy metal singer who achieved mainstream success as frontman of Skid Row from 1987-96. Since his departure from Skid Row, he has had many television roles, acted in Broadway plays, and leads a solo career.

Not sure how this happened. Are you kidding this guy should have been # 1. By far the best male rock vocalist in the universe. His sharp high vocals and screams go unmatched.

Such controlled screaming - knew how to use to use his voice and could reach the top notes so well.

Whit his vocal range he should be one of the top 10 at least.

Crazy at 105? 18 and life anyone?

106Ivan MoodyIvan L. Moody, known by the pseudonym Ghost during his time with Motograter, is the lead vocalist for American heavy metal band Five Finger Death Punch from Las Vegas, Nevada.

When u listen to the man's raw vocals, you see a damaged man expressing himself in an angry yet beautiful way. I can tell you one thing, singers like Ivan and Brent smith can sing way better than people like John Lennon ever did, no disrespect to him but Ivan is a great vocalist.

Ivan Moody is underscored here in my opinion. He should have been ranked higher.

Best voice I have ever heard in my life! He is gorgeous and he and his band really have talent. Can't wait to see them in concert one day!

He's one of the best vocalist I've ever heard, he has a lot of meaning behind his lyrics and the rest of the ban is amazing if I ever met any if them I would faint in a heartbeat.
If they ever stopped I would die.BVB for ever

Andy has amazing voice range...from In the End to Done For You. He has such a masculine voice. I love Andy's voice so much and a die hard fan of the band as well.

Such a beautiful deep voice

115Dave GrohlDavid Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known as the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.

He's a lot better choice than frankly most of the people ahead of him. At least he does really rock.

Not exactly top 10 material, but 97? Really?

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.

If singing's about vocals, Coverdale covers every range and every emotion... Here I Go Again, Still of the Night... Truly unbeatable man's voice.
Possibly along with Paul Rodgers, Mark Knopfler, Klaus Meine, Eddie Vedder, Jim Morrison, Freddie Mercury, Roger Waters, Ian Anderson, John Fogerty, Steven Tyler, Bon Jovi, Axl Rose, Kurt Cobain, Billy Joel and Robert Plant the greatest rock/metal vocalist of all time.
