I put him at #1 because he is at #25 on the other list, which is too high for a non-metal singer on a metal list. Obviously too many people believe he's a metal singer but he's not. - Metal_Treasure

Great picks Metal_Treasure, did the right thing by putting him here - Ananya

But @Metal_Treasure there are some metal songs of guns n roses (I might be wrong though) like Civil War,Paradise City,Welcome to the Jungle which are heavy metal.And axl rose is a good high-pitched singer and also a great screamer. - zxm

2Steven TylerSteven Tyler is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and former television music competition judge, best known as the lead singer of the Boston-based rock band Aerosmith, in which he also plays the harmonica, and occasional piano and percussion.

They claim that they are a rock band,but maybe they are also a hard rock band but noway near metal - zxm

Steven Tyler is a rock singer, not a metal singer. why did they put him on that list. - ElectricCorpseSlayer

3Amy LeeAmy Lynn Hartzler, known professionally as Amy Lee, is an American singer-songwriter, classically trained pianist and composer. She is also the lead singer to the Arkansas band Evanescence.

When I see her there - its annoys me as hell - Ananya

She could be in a metal band but her voice isn't metal,I always wondered why she is always so high on metal singer s - zxm
