Best Singers of All Time

The Contenders: Page 16

301 Harry Styles Harry Styles Harry Edward Styles is an English singer and song writer, known as the least talented member of the boy band One Direction.

Okay many people say that he has a bad voice? If you just listen to his lead vocals they're absolutely brilliant. I may be biased because I am completely in love with One Direction, but no matter what I wouldn't be able to deny he has a brilliant voice even if it isn't near the best in the world, just listening to his voice is true talent! Some of you should listen to their music and they do have talent regardless if you like their music or not.

Whoever put this needs to be reminded that this is a list of the BEST singers. A voice of a 5 year old doesn't cut it.

His voice was so sexy but he can't really use it right. They also gave him so many solos and now his voice sounds really sore. I'm happy their having a break

He's got a voice but its sort of hoarse

302 Lzzy Hale Lzzy Hale Elizabeth Mae "Lzzy" Hale is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. She is best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the American hard rock band Halestorm, which she co-founded in 1997.

What the flying hell is she doing way down here!?!? She should be in the #1 spot, she is the greatest singer I've ever heard in my entire life, her voice is so dirty and gritty, it's so beautiful. And she has the strongest pipes ever, she can scream and hit high notes like nobody else can. Halestorm is awesome and she is awesome

I'm not even a huge Halestorm fan but this lady has a great voice. One of the best rock vocalists, scratch that one of the BEST vocalists ever

225th? But...have you HEARD her sing live? I think her performance (it's a different genre and different range but still) the vocal performance she gives is right up there with Michael Jackson.

She can do so much with her voice, I feel that anything less than top 50 of this list is borderline insulting for such a talent - Lyssa

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

Neil Young at 237!?! Which morons are voting on this

He's totally unique, about 100 years old, always been true to his ideals, cool, Canadian, a loner, no sell out, a voice that is not exactly beautiful but very strong and he's written some of the best rock songs (Powderfinger, Hey hey my my...) and saddest prettiest love songs (Heart of gold, Cinnamon girl) in rock history.
Place 237? Gimme a break! - ChatonNoir

316 Jonathan Davis Jonathan Davis Jonathan Howsmon Davis, also known as JD and JDevil, is an American musician best known as the leading vocalist and frontman of the nu metal band Korn.

as the frontman of korn, he has an awesome voice, ranging from low growls/screams to soft singing(as in tearjerker) and puts amazing emotion in his music. he also communicates with the fans a lot, including having a contest where fans made the cover of their 4th album, issues. - fieldy_freak

Jonathan Davis is the backbone of Korn... What I find amazing is that he can sing a melodic style and then change the song's style into a death-metal version in a heart-beat... His live performances are out of this galaxy... Don't forget that he has the greatest mic stand ever... Top ten at least!

Jonathan puts a lot of emotions in his songs, and he's great singer, can't be described... Really amazing - `Co

Great power and provides a great deal of musicianship for someone ranked 455. Underrated

317 Klaus Meine Klaus Meine

Klaus sounds great on every song. His combined ability to deliver Hard Rockers (ie: Pictured Life, Blackout) and Beautiful Ballads (Still Loving You, Holiday) is simply better than ANYONE else. And he is better live than in the Studio. I've seen him feed off the crowd and dominate songs. He is fantastic.

Klaus has a very unique voice.. the most suitable voice for ballet rock songs.. has a very high tone voice.. he's the best singer EVER!

Who can sing the songs of Scorpions? Only ONE man - Klaus Meine. And in fact his voice is still the same since the seventies. And still he trills away like a nightingale after operation in the eighties. That is why his voice is the most unique in the known Universe. - Kuzma

Truly the best singer I've ever heard. Listen to "�'Still Loving You" and all the other Scorpions songs and you will realize how good he is. And in the age 68 he still sings like a young god. - DarkSideOfDragons

I almost went with Alison Krauss but Sarah McLachlan has more range in my mind.

An amazing vocalist, I am surprised she is not ranked in the top 20.
