242Mikael AkerfeldtLars Mikael Ã…kerfeldt is a Swedish musician, prominently known as the lead vocalist, guitarist, and primary songwriter of progressive death metal band Opeth, as well as being the former vocalist of death metal supergroup Bloodbath.

He's amazing, from brutal death metal growls to super clean falsetto. I love him. Shame that no one put him on this list.

Unbelievable vocals. Switches from low, demonic growls to sweet, melodic singing in seconds. - resipisence

Listen to the song Burden by Opeth then you'll understand

246Zendaya Coleman

I think zendaya should not be at 267 she should be higher she might not be the best but she still good just because she a teenager that don't me she should not be voted

I think Zendaya should be in the Top 3 best singers in the world because she has an amazing voice and love all her songs. I love you zendaya

She can't sing or dance or act. she tries to be this triple threat when she can't even do one! She sucks butt.

Zendaya should be number

As an actor, he is known for his debut role as Austin Moon on the Disney Channel original series Austin & Ally, and for his role as Brady in Disney Channel's Teen Beach ...read more.

He doesn't deserve to be on this list the only reason people like him because he is "hot" - docreywashere

Why is he even on this list? He can't song, all his songs are pointless teen pop crap, and he is the crappiest guitar player of all time. - therootbeer

Ross is so cute and he is really talented he shouldn't be allowed the way on 200

At least he is pretty far down on the list.

Devin Townsend Project - Kingdom

By far one of the most talented singers currently, he is one of the few people who has a vocal range of 5 octaves and can switch from screaming to singling like that. he also is the best live performer I have ever heard. he should be in the top ten.

254Patrick StumpPatrick Martin Stumph, known professionally as Patrick Vaughn Stump, is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, actor and music critic, best known as the lead vocalist, guitarist, pianist and composer of Fall Out Boy, an American rock band from Wilmette, Illinois.

Patrick Stump. The first words that come to my mind about him is how phenomenal and talented he truly is. For 14 years, he has written the music for his band and solo career, adding up to a total of 7 studio albums. Most people on this list are incapable of writing even one song on their own. Time and time again Patrick Stump has impressed us with the juxtaposition of emotional and rather depressing lyrics (that he and the bassist of Fall Out Boy, Pete Wentz, collaborate to write) and upbeat and obnoxiously fun music behind it. And they have only gotten more and more successful over the years. Instead of running out of material, Fall Out Boy is constantly surprising is with albums even better than the last. Not to mention, Patrick's vocal range spans from an E2 to a C6. That spans almost 4 octaves, and the high notes are extremely impressive for a man to be able to sing, and he can sing those notes unbelievably well. Patrick Stump is truly remarkable, and should be much higher on this ...more

I'm shocked and devastated that this amazing man isn't at least in the top 30. Patrick Stump has an almost unhuman vocal range and is capable of singing most any genre, from pop to punk to rock to jazz. His voice is truly unique and distinguishable and beautiful overall. Of course, his solo career isn't well known and Fall Out Boy (he's the singer! ) is just now rising to fame and maybe one day he'll be more well known as an amazing person and beautiful singer.

Patrick is so underrated as a musician. His voice is so versatile and his vocal range is incredible. Honestly I'm shocked that he's not higher on the list. He can sing punk, he can sing soul, he can sing pop, he can sing everything in-between and he puts his heart into what he does. Patrick is incredible and without a doubt should be way higher on this list.

Such a good vocalist, he had 5 lungs I swear

255Kim Tae-yeon

She was born not only to be an awesome Idol but also a wonderful singer. This is proved by her talent many, many time and she always make her member and SONEs proud of her

She has a voice of an angel. I love her high pitch voice. She has the most amazing voice in all kpop singers. She can sing any songs amazingly. Shes also a fantastic leader of SNSD.

She is a good singer with a sweet voice that make me feel better
She's also a good leader... And I admire her

Not only Tae-yeon all members in Girls Generation (SNSD) are born with talent and SNSD made their fans feel proud

256Liam GallagherWilliam John Paul "Liam" Gallagher is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. He rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye.

How is Zak Efron higher on this list than Liam Gallagher? He was the voice of the 90's with Oasis and his Beady Eye tunes are epic as well... Ever heard of Wonderwall, Supersonic, Champagne Supernova? Those were just the tip of the iceberg- there is a mountain of Liam-sung B-sides, album songs and singles that blow any other band or singer out of the window. How can someone who's band has scored 8 UK number one singles and 8 number one albums be at #598? He's been voted the best frontman of all time in several polls, and his band Oasis had sold over 70 million records worldwide by the time they split up in 2009. This list is a joke.

Why is he all the way down here crappier singers made it at the top of the list this is bull crap. Liam deserves to be at at least 20 or 30

Are we already insane? To not putting the very charismatic, brave, bad attitude but has a very influential voice, have you ever listen wonder wall in live in action? You better ask to God to have your time back..
silly we don't put liam neither noel here, what

Should be in the top 20 surely! - Monners55

257Sebastian 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.

I honestly have no idea why he's 261. His range is UNBELIEVABLE, and I think he's a far better singer than Axl Rose. I mean his screams are enough to give goosebumps (listen to Angel Down) but have you listened to Quicksand Jesus his voice is GORGEOUS. He is the true God of metal and hard rock singing and if all of you are so deaf at least put him in the top 100. I mean 261 you've got to be kidding me! He's #1 in my book, tied with Freddie Mercury.

He is the father of hard rock/metal singing. I mean his high pitched screams that no one in their right mind would even try to recreate are just kick ass! His vocal range is like non I've ever heard in my life.
In my opinion he's #1.
Bach Rules!

For me he has is the best vocalist of all time, I listen music lot and whenever it comes to vocal then sebastian bach comes to my mind.
I love MEGADETH and PORCUPINE TREE

Legend - made Skid Row the insane band that they are

258Peggy LeePeggy Lee was an American jazz and popular music singer, songwriter, composer and actress, in a career spanning six decades.

One of the most nominated singers in the Grammy awards. Peggy's phrasing, styling, and nuanced way with a lyric were influential for many female singers who came later --- singers like Bette Midler and Maria Muldaur have done tribute albums. Miss Peggy Lee was a musical perfectionist - she could be cool and jazzy one moment and be giving you "fever" the next.
Some of her songs were laced with sly humor and many could make you misty.
She was also quite a looker (Scandinavian heritage)--- in the late 50's and early 60's her figure was quite voluptuous! For a musical treat and to learn more about this great artist check out "Fever - the Music of Peggy Lee" on DVD.

Peggy Lee could do it all- Songwriter, actor, recording artist as well as cabaret singer! She also perfected her stage persona and that was a treat to see.
Peggy could sing jazz, pop, mor, etc.. And no one could imitate her style which is timeless!

259Anne MurrayMorna Anne Murray known professionally as Anne Murray, is a Canadian singer in pop, country, and adult contemporary music whose albums have sold over 55 million copies worldwide.

She had a voice that you just wanted to listen to, whatever the quality of the song. I greatly regret that I only became aware of her when her career was almost over. It's one of music's greatest tragedies that her arrangements and her musical backup were so lousy. If it hadn't been for that, she would have been one of the greatest. Even a great voice like hers needs support. She had none; in fact, what musical "support" she had can more properly be described as a distraction, an irritant Her material was also poor. Unfortunately, when she sung the standards, she also suffered from the same fatal flaws. If she had only had a good arranger. Sigh.

260Anni Frid Lyngstad

She deserves to be the greatest singer, while she always performed live and it was almost even better than on record. Besides, she has a voice, which always gives me goosebumps and a lot of love. - txrednosereindeer

Frida is one of the best singers of all time. Put an A into ABBA.

Without doubt, the two ABBA girls should be a lot higher on this list. Probably in the top ten. Their harmony's were incredible and their range even more so. Agnetha Faltskog's range was unsurpassed and Fredia's voice made them the top selling Pop band of all time. 67 would be an insult but 167 is just ridiculous.

What a voice... especially live
