The Contenders: Page 2

21 Thom Yorke - Radiohead
22 Mark Lanegan - Screaming Trees

His voice is just increadible, it's deep, rough, intense..., well you know, he doesn't need to do much effort to sing because even his speaking voice is mesmerizing.

I was expecting at least top five, number one in my list

16th? Really? He's the best singer
