Best Male Singers

The Contenders: Page 9

161 Kyo Kyo Kyo is a Japanese musician, poet and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the vocalist of the metal band Dir en grey. He has been with the band since its inception in 1997 and was formerly in La:Sadie's.

His range in singing, screeching, and growling blows me away. Then, just as I think that his vocals couldn't get any better, he adds an indescribable amount of emotion; anger, hatred, sorrow, hopelessness, who knows what else. That's what makes him a great vocalist and artist and what makes him one of the best in the world.

Kyo's vocal range and versatility along with his pure expressive emotion put into his performances makes him without a doubt the best I've heard.

WAY more range than Jackson! Don't get me wrong Jackson was a good singer but really!? Number 1? You people need to listen to MORE music like Dir en Grey! - MeowMix

Genius. God of all music. Jackson? Haha - tenthsage

He is an extremely tallented singer from India. I always love his songs. Mainly in slow romantic songs he is unbeatable.
Love you Shaan.

The best singer in the world. He beats everyone by his singing & putting soul in his songs. He is best at any language.E.G. listen "Bhool Ja" song on youtube & just see & give votes.

His voice quality is very good. Lookswise appears very soft but his voice suits to all the heros who looks manly and mejestic...

165 Tom Jones Tom Jones Sir Thomas Jones Woodward is a Welsh singer known by his stage name Tom Jones. He became one of the most popular vocalists to emerge from the mid-1960s.

I have seen Sir Tom Jones 137 times in Concert and the man known as "The Voice" has the strongest, most versatile voice that could sing ANY genre that I have ever heard Live and that includes Elvis, Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Michael Jackson, Englebert, McCartney, Joel, Elton, Buble etc

Anytime I've heard Sir Tom sing with another male vocalist, he always makes them sound very inferior. If this was a knockout battle Sir Tom would be much higher up this list, if not at the top!

After all is he not called "The Voice" for nothing!

He should be in the top ten

166 David Guetta David Guetta

Why on earth is David Guetta higher on this list than Ryan Tedder?
Does Mr Guetta even sing

167 Julian Lennon
168 Mick Hucknall
169 Smokey Robinson Smokey Robinson William "Smokey" Robinson, Jr. is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and former record executive.

This list is a joke. How can you listen to "The Tracks Of My Tears", "Crusin "," The Tears of a Clown", "I Second That Emotion", "Being With You ", etc., and not rate Smokey Robinson higher. Do you have EARS?

170 Tobias Sammet Tobias Sammet Tobias Sammet is a German metal musician, best known as the vocalist and primary songwriter of the power metal band Edguy, as well as the founder, main singer and bassist of the metal opera Avantasia.

Very addictive voice. Tobi is a master - great tenor, long sustain, beautiful screams. My fave songs - Nailed to the wheel, Sacrifice, Mysteria (by Edguy). - Metal_Treasure

171 Adam Gontier Adam Gontier Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

We're talking about Adam Gontier here. Enough said!
All the others are there because they are either famous or were involved in classic rock, not Hard Rock like Adam. He is the best singer ever. His live performances often surpass the studio versions. He reeks of awesomeness and quality!

Adam Gontier is such a great singer and is pretty versatile. He sings with such emotion both in studio and live, and is amazing at both. He is definitely better than a lot of pop artists on this list - I don't know why he's so far down on the list.

I'm seeing comments about him having a range of 4 1/2 octaves - what notes are in this range (for example, B2 to A4 - I'm not saying that is his range)? I can't find anything other than "low tenor to high bass". Thanks! - noname

Adam Gontier has the most beautiful, shiver inducing voice. I just can't comprehend how it's possible for him to not be higher up on this list. Clearly, you all need to listen to some Three Days Grace, and listen to his beautiful voice that just screams with all his emotions. I don't mean to bash singers like Michael Jackson, but I could never get into their voices. They never made me feel like Adam's voice did.

That's sad! He is an amazing singer, he loves his fans, he sings with so much emotion, and his voice is pure natural, and he isn't even in the top 150! :(

172 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.

Best voice! Should certainly be on the top 10! I go to tons of concerts and his solo concert with just him up there singing and playing the guitar was one of the most incredible concert experiences ever! Totally pulls you in with his depth and unbelievable voice! People vote for Eddie... His voice deserves the top 10 without a doubt! Just go see his solo concert and you will see... I promise!

not only is he a powerful baritone, but he's incredibly expressive - vwade8

Eddie Vedder is THE package. He's got range, soul, and lyrical skill. Yet RAPPERS like Eminem and Usher are ahead of him. Usher uses autotune, which should immediately disqualify him.

His voice is deep you know, much deeper than singers above him in the list with all due respect, his voice makes you feel deep

173 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claimed that he was Part-Indian) and he's Christian. He's the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. more.

Justin Bieber is the worst singer to come out of our former colonies. He's so childish, rude, racist and disrespectful. He spat on his fans from a balcony. He peed in a mop bucket. He appeared late to his concerts. He spat on his neighbours and threatened to kill him. He smoked weed on a plane. He egged his neighbour's house. He groped an underage fan's breast during a meet-and-greet. He defaced public property in an attempt to support Chris Brown. He punched a kid. He flipped out at a London photographer. He yells at him and even attempts to take swings before being shoved into a vehicle by his bodyguards. He dissed Anime fans, Asians, Kurt Cobain, Linkin Park, The Beatles and Bill Clinton. He's friends with Kim Kardashian, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Drake. He whinged about not winning a grammy. He swore at a policeman. He disobeyed his mum by going out when he just lost his phone privileges. He made a racist joke involving the N word. He disrespected Argentina and their flag. He ...more

I don't know about you guys but I can't stand him he is just a guy version of Miley Cyrus

I love him so much he is a great singer and inspiration why do people hate him when they don't even know him. You don't know his life story he went through a lot of bad stuff. Thank god you are here Justin I don't know were I would be with out you. When I listened to you songs I felt like in heaven like I didn't care people bully me. I get bullied but your songs help me stay strong

Old Justin Bieber was the worst and now is still better since 2015, but prefer more to Vocaloid and Gorillaz.

174 Hyde (L'arc-en-Ciel)

Hyde has an amazing vocal range... And the quality of his voice is just something that is perfect not only for rock music but also for any genre of music. Listening to him blows me away...

With his amazing near-4-octave range (low E in Evergreen to High-High A in Hitomi no Junin) and rich velvety voice, Hyde ought to have been more widely-appreciated by the rest of the World!

Low and sensual, high notes with a strong vibrato, powerful ballads or fast rock songs and so on. It's all the same, he has the best voice. with a sense of interpretation that can't be better.

He has such amazing wide-range long-reach beautiful voice that makes me think that his voice is really a God sent. Lucky me to hear that kind of voice!

175 Serj Tankian Serj Tankian Serj Tankian is a Lebanese-born Armenian-American singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, poet, and political activist.

If you've an appreciation for voices, listen to something by System of a Down. Look, it's fine if you dislike that genre, but his voice is nothing short of flabbergasting. I'm confident anyone can appreciate this man's talent. In that vein, Shavo Odadjian also of System of a Down.

He is the best on the world! Enough said

You have all these other singers who don't even hold a candle compared to Serj at like 15 yet here Serj is at 155? These votes must consist of young fools who consider auto tune singers to be real... how sad.

Serj is best singer serj is 1 rank

176 Jason Mraz Jason Mraz

umm... hello. Jason Mraz's new song 'I'm Yours' has swept across the world like a tsunami. His unique style of singing is incomparable to other male singers. His songs all delve deep into what life is all about. Even before he struck worldwide fame with the aforementioned song, almost all his shows were sold out. What else needs to be said?

He should be the best singer ever in the world I think... But I wonder why he is down beneath this list? His voice always makes my days become lighter... And he is quite famous... Please vote for him... I'm a big fan of Jason Mraz...

Yes, I actually liked I'm Yours before radio played it to death. But that is not to diminish Jason, who is a terrific singer/songwriter with other great songs like I Won't Give Up and Living in the Moment. He deserves much higher, really.

Jason is PERFECTION. Amazingly soothing voice, meaningful and beautiful lyrics, fantastic melody. What else do you need. He is, at the moment the best singer in the world bar none.

What is with people putting Rappers on this list. Rapping is totally different from singing.

180 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

Absolutely agree. Technically he's terrible but other people sing his songs and it's always missing something. No less an authority than Graham Nash said Dylan was "absolutely my favorite songwriter and absolutely my favorite singer".

Seriously, nobody writes them like Bob, and nobody does Dylan like Dylan! Greatest songwriter of all time! Greatest singer of his all together incredible songs!

Bob dylan may not have the best sounding voice, but its very expressive. who else could have done the "how does it feel? " in like a rolling stone like bob did? - RecklessGreed

He doesn't really have the best voice, but could write a great song. - mmarce445
