41 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has ...read more.

No matter how sad or depressed I am. Madonna always gets me through it. I adore her and her voice is very distinct you can always tell it's her

There is a warmth to Madonna's voice. It sounds like a mother singing to you.
I know her voice when I hear it and it makes me feel secure and hopeful.

This is probably the WORST choice on this list. She is NOT a singer and pretty much every pop girl group has at least one girl with this kind of voice.

Madonna had style and swagger, but she was never a singer.

No Madonna isn't a unique voice in music.. You'll remember her for her beauty,swag but not her voice...

Fantastic tenor voice, multimedia singer! I can recognize his voice mile away...

Fantastic voice, fantastic soul, He left his mark on this earth. May he always sing with angels above and watch over us!

He sang like an angel. And had the soul to match.

Fantastic singer, left us too early :/

Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning ...read more.

If you think about it, NOBODY sounds like Rihanna. Y'all are sleeping on her. She's not the greatest singer every, but definitely unique.

She's getting better and better with each song! Anyone who's listening to her from earlier period can easily detect it! She's become a strong and amazing vocalist! Her voice is smooth, edgy & unique!

Rihanna should be number one because she has such a beautiful and unique singing voice. She's also gorgeous.

She sounds different from the rest.

44 Ronnie James Dio Ronnie James Dio Ronnie James Dio (born Ronald James Padavona; July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010) was an American heavy metal singer, songwriter and musician. He fronted and/or founded numerous groups including Elf, Rainbow, Black Sabbath, Dio and Heaven & Hell. He is credited with popularizing the "metal horns" hand gesture ...read more.

How is he not even on the first page? This man brought a new era of voice quality in music and you shun him for his genre choice? This is a list of the most UNIQUE voices. Listen to Holy Diver, Rainbow in the Dark, Don't Talk to Strangers, and Rock n Roll Children, and tell me that voice is not only the best to ever conquer metal, but one the most unique to ever hit the face of the earth. RIP RJD

He should be at least top 5, one of the most unique voices to ever grace this earth. Honestly what the hell is wrong with these people on this list, most people compared to him sound like crap, plain and simple

Only if more of the voters had heard his songs, he'd be among the top. I have listened to all the rest in top 10 (similar to pretty much everyone). But I just skipped it to come and find Dio.

Was fortunate enough to see the Angry Elf live. When metal icons like Black Sabbath ask you to fill in, you don't suck. Rest well, RJD. Know you're a hero in my eyes...no, wait, ears.

45 Morten Harket Morten Harket Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released ten studio albums and topped the charts internationally after their breakthrough hit "Take on Me" in 1985.

The singer who is in the Guinness Book of records for the uniqueness of the voices five octaves is not in the top five?! What kind of vote?

Although I prefer his songs as an A-ha member, I agree that his voice is deep and eerie

Are you mad mortan 39 god of unique voice deserve should be n1 can't beat them - sureshsari0.ur

46 Maynard James Keenan Maynard James Keenan Maynard James Keenan, often referred to by his initials MJK, is an American musician, record producer, winemaker, and actor, best known as the vocalist for Grammy Award-winning progressive metal band Tool.

I cannot believe Maynard James Keenan is #60 on here! I'm sorry, but I've heard plenty of voices like Avril Lavigne's voice. And Britney Spears? Take out the highly edited/computerized crap and what do you have left? I have never heard a voice like Maynard's. Not ever!

Shouldn't have to scroll this far to see this name, underrated band in-general, overrated by the bands fans, definitely one of the most original sounding band of all time in all ways.

He is the best singer and has such a unique and powerful voice... Tool is amazing - Okami

Come on, nobody tops his vocals with Tool, and A Perfect Circle

His debut solo album Hesitant Alien was released ...read more.

This is insulting Gee should be right at the top! Come on guys! His voice is just so amazing words can't describe how much I love his voice. It's so pure and I could listen to it wherever, whenever and forever. He has such a recognizable voice and I could pick it out even if he was just humming in the background, this man is truly amazing and bonus sexy too!
Proud Member Of the MCRmy

First thing, why is Gee only at 35!?! His voice is amazing. I could literally listen to it all day, everyday. I could pick his voice from anywhere, no matter what. He has the most recognizable voice I have ever heard. Gerard Way is absolutely phenomenal. He should be in at least top 10. My Chemical Romance is my favourite band of all time, and always will be.

ONLY 35!?!? Nowadays you can't pick out who is who out of all of these new rock bands. I've always been able to pick out Gerard's voice! Now, My Chemical Romance is my favorite band but it is because of this fact. Gerard's voice is phenomenal and he should be in at least the top 15, but what do I know?

I can't believe he is rated so low, find one person out that can impersonate his voice. Nothing? Exactly. He has the most recognizable voices in the universe. He sings in a way no one can imitate. When he sings, he sings with emotion. Emotion so strong that no one can copy.

49 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.

You don't even need music and you can know it's the mighty table himself, all you have to do is hear a "YEAH". For me the way that makes him unique is his style for example "deep down inside I feel the scream-AH"

The best simply for his rasp and power he processed in his heyday of singing and very few can duplicate it. Even in 2016 he has picked his singing back to a higher level that reminds me of his prime vocal years in the load era (1996).

WHAT! How is he down hear? You people are crasy this man is moses in metal form

No one can replicate the agonizing, desprate screams from songs like ride the lightning

50 Neil Young Neil Young Neil Percival Young is a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, producer, director and screenwriter.

This list is a joke Neil has to be higher, one of the most beautiful and unique voices I've ever heard. He should be first on this list

As far as being unique, Neil is definitely top ten. I can name several people that sound like almost everyone who is ahead of him on this list. I can't think of one person that sounds like Neil Young.

Ya what's up with this?!? Neil Young is the most unique and amazing voice on planet Earth. Period. No wait, maybe Josh Groban is the most amazing, but he is by far the most unique. Even though Jimmy Fallon can do an incredible imitation.

Let's not forget he wrote a song called piece of crap

51 Regina Spektor Regina Spektor

Her style is so unique, I could recognize any of her songs in a heart beat

She has an amazing voice to match an amazing girl! She inspired so many other singers that to this day many people try to copy her style, but she is the only good one! She should be number 1!

Her voice is so amazing and unique! Discovered her a little while ago but know would recognize her voice anywhere

Literally every time I hear a Spektor song, I immediately imagine her, whether I know the song or not.

52 Tim McIlrath Tim McIlrath Timothy 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.

I understand this its hard to compare a rock artists voice to someone who sings graceful songs voice. However, the way Tim put meaning and soul into his voice while still keeping the punk/ alternative rock element is truly amazing. Often at a Rise Against show its his voice that gets the crowd so involved in each song and the entire show rather than the instruments.

Tim's voice isn't "pretty" by any stretch of the imagination, but he sings with such passion that you get caught up more in the music than his voice in particular. That's what makes his voice so unique and inspiring.

His raspy and beautiful voice makes Rise Against fans love every song. - theunmuted

Nobody else can sing like this guy, and I don't know why he isn't here already

54 Amy Winehouse Amy Winehouse Amy Jade Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter known for her deep expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul, rhythm and blues, and jazz.

Her voice is very unique I must say. There is no one else in the world who has a voice like her. Once you here her for the first time and you her her for the second time you will automatically know it's her voice. Sad she died though rest in peace

I was just scrolling down the entire list looking for her name. Her voice was amazing. Amy will be missed.

No 568. A travesty. I seriously feel like crying. Justin Beiber's voice is considered more unique than Amy Winehouse's? What's the world coming to? I saw this list and immediately thought Amy. Then she wasn't in the top ten. Then top hundred. 568. Seriously? - thaxception

Unique and beautiful voice. Feelings in the form of sound. Absolutly love her!

She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . ...read more.

Lady gaga has a very strong voice that is capable of doing many things. I would at least expect her to be in the top5. She has really changed the meaning of music and has evolved it to something stronger. Like art. I love you gaga! Monster for life

Lady gaga has a unique style in music that's nobody make it from before and lady gaga have a lot of fan that's support her I wish the luck for her

She is by far the most unique on this list. Her voice is so easy to pick out from a crowd and definitely makes you want to get up and dance or cry whenever gaga wants you too. #thequeen

57 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Her voice is raspy.. With a hint of attitude and I don't really care when she sings up tempo songs.. When she gets soulful with the rasp and a beautiful ranges.. It's sad she is way down here at 75 people she has one hell of a voice.. And if you can't recognize her from two words.. You've got some major problems

Has a deep smoky something to it, that's catchy and true at the same time. She all time trumps Swift come on guys. She may not be all that popular anymore but she is pretty good, better than others I can say. - Papergirl

Okay Pink should be in the top ten.
Because a lot of people have tried to sing like her, but let's face it there is only one Pink.

She is one of my least favorite singers, but I'll admit that you can instantly recognize one of her songs.

58 Kate Bush Kate Bush

She has the most unique sounding voice that I've ever heard, and it took me a little while to get used to, but now I love it. She has such a strange sound for a soprano, and not everyone will automatically love her voice. It took some time to grow on me, but her voice is completely original. Listen to Wuthering Heights because her voice is absolutely hauntingly beautiful in a way. I would have expected Kate Bush to at least be in the top 10.

I don't understand why she isn't higher up on the list. She has one of the most unique voices I have ever heard in my life. I can't get enough of it, she is my musical goddess.

Very unique and beautiful voice, varies from high-pitched (on the verge of being childish) to low-pitched (and very mature). Her voice has a nearly inhuman range, which is combined with smooth rock music.

Kate is one of the most distinctive voices. It's incredibly versatile, rich and emotive voice that has a dark, weighty timbre. - Ben15

59 David Archuleta

Not enough people know his voice for him to be this high. I haven't seen Mick Jagger, Tom Petty, Bob Seger, John Fogerty, or Rod Stewart yet, all of whom, along with many others, have a much more recognizable voice than Archuleta? Is that his name? I don't even recognize his name, much less his voice.

No one sounds like David, his voice is unique and amazing. Listen to his Live Performances, be careful you just may turn into a fangirl/guy unwillingly and there's no turning back.

The strongest voice is not always the most unique one. So, I definitely think that all the singers that are above David in that list have stronger voices than him, but his voice is without a doupt the most unique.

60 James Blunt James Blunt

Clearly the most unique voice ever.

I don't understand why he isn't up with the most unique people. He obviously has an incpredible voice that should be more listend to. If you listen to more than just "You're Beautiful", then you should know what I'm talking about. Now matter what song he sings, the very second you hear the first word of the song, you know that it is him, and that it is unique.
