Best Male Frontmensas
The Top Ten
Once you've seen freddie on stage performing, you are enticed by him and you feel every little emotion that he feels. No one, i repeat NO ONE can or has ever portray the mood of a song like freddie could. He is a legend, and all legends should be admired and praised for what they've accomplished. Even Mike Meyers commented on Freddie by saying 'This is a god who walks as man.' R.I.P. Freddie, we'll never forget...
Freddie Mercury was a remarkable phaenomenon. He sang in various octaves using all his effort. He had a falsetto which could make a deaf person able to hear again. He performed in a unique way using all possible space on stage, making crowds of thousands attendants staring at him for hours. He gained the fans with his personality and despite the fact that he was homosexual he lead a rock band (a classic str8 dream) in such a success that never ever found in other "str8" frontmen. And that says a lot about who deserves the title. - athens_voice
Why is this guy not at the top? He had more stage presence in one hair of his iconic moustache than Jon and the rest of Bon Jovi has combined (and I happen to like Bon Jovi)! His voice and the way it just blended with the instruments of the other band members, the songwriting, the stage theatrics... it all combined to make one heck of a frontman. If you need proof that he's better than Gackt (and I like him/Malice Mizer too) and Jon Bon Jovi, watch Queen's performance at Live Aid. - TheAI
I just started back on my Rock Band following. Freddie Mercury is the best. He throws his arms at the crowd and they throw there's back. His voice is truly amazing, his humming is Amplifying, he's just enjoyable to watch. Oh, and songs are truly Rock and Roll, QUEEN!V 60 Comments
Robert is deffinetly the best frontman of all time. With his beautiful, unique voice, his charisma and his undeniable ability to put on a wonderful show and interpret the Led Zeppelin songs with such passion that you would think he's singing them for the very first time, he is truly a ROCK GOD.
There's no way Freddie outdoes Robert. Robert Plant is such a spectacle to watch live, his motions work with the dynamic of the song, and even when he isn't moving he has such a stage presence. Not to mention he's such a great singer. Freddie always sounded so bouncy and flamboyant and never quite reached the level of intensity of emotion that Robert could reach, even in Bohemian Rhapsody.
With his long golden hair and bare chest, on stage he portrayed the image of a rock god.Robert Plant is deifinitlely one of the best singers ever.He should be on #1.
Absolutely phenomenal...not better than Freddie Mercury though - 12ccV 12 Comments
I think Jagger should be number 1. I know others wouldn't agree because some prefer Freddie Mercury, Robert Plant, James Brown etc and that's understandable. But Mick is still surely top 5 in that scenario. But Jared Leto? Come on people!
Who even is he?
Oh come on this man has twice (or more) the charisma of jared leto, the confidence of freddie mercury and a very very very very unique voice
He should be number one. He owns the stage and gives the best performance I have ever seen - over and over again.
Mick has started it all, he's the one.V 10 Comments
because it is an excellent songwriter and singer! has one of the most privileged voices and talent fills the air. He has lent his voice to other groups successfully and even composed for a movie. One of the personalities who earns more money in Finland and that has contributed most to the Finnish econimia. Definitely deserves this job! - LucasMota
We vote him because he has such a beautiful voice and when he write a song, he puts all his feelings and open his heart and in combination with the rest of the guys of the band (Aki, Pauli and Eero)they create the best band in this world: THE RASMUS!
LIVE PROMISES- THE RASMUS OFFICIAL FANS CLUB - ARGENTINA - Trish
he's the best singer and most beautiful so funny and also great person with AKI EERO and PAULI are thes best band THE RASMUS 4ever and after vote for him [email protected] :D he will win I know =) -
How are people putting this guy before bruce dickinson and kurt cobain?V 23 Comments
Has one of the greatest and most powerful voices in rock n' roll history, and he still has it even in his later years.
Agreed. This list is bogus. It;s all about popularity. Saw him live, he was jumpin all over the place. Put on a truly awesome show - UFasten8Me
No one else runs around like this guy and still sings perfect
Even with his cancer he still rocks - 12cc
He sings like a beast! but also he is the best rhythm guitarist in the whole world! Not too many people can do that, and nobody can do that as good as Jamie! Metallica is one of the best bands in history thanks to him.
he should be higher, but 8 is ok, he is an awesome performer, he can play and entertain at the same time! the only thing that I don't like is the abandonment of the aggresive stage presence now "you better sing along.. or you are in F****** TROUBLE" has turned into "sing along if you know the words" sad ( I want to write sad but true, but thats just a kliche :P ) - Psykosauron
Agreed! Hetfield should be number one! He is a Legend of thrash unlike anyone else on the list... Except freddie to a legend.. But anyway
How is he 8? And behind all these people? Like who is the number one? And bon jovi sucks! And people vote jackson, why? Right he died! If he didn't he wouldn't be in that spot, or in the top ten.
Nice Poofy haircut. What a Knob. Lars is a big mouth know it all. Be quiet and Go Away.V 14 Comments
Roger is really underrated on this list along with sting, eddie vedder, dave grohl, billy corgan, jim morrison and steven tyler.
So charismatic and handsome. Keith and Pete were always present with their wacky stage antics but there was always something about Roger that remained the center of attention.
Roger Daltrey is the best frontman of all time.. The very best voice. See Woodstock - See Me, Feel Me. You will agree. No contest!
Roger pioneered the appearance of the frontman. Without him, greats such as Robert Plant and Jim Morrison wouldn't have had the blueprints for their stage act. Today at 72, he still performs as extravagantly and athletically as he did back in the 60's and 70's. With his bare chest and golden hair, accompanied by a tambourine and the brutal swinging of a microphone that he sings into with his powerful voice, he countinues to put the audience in a state of awe and excitement.V 4 Comments
R.I. p mr cobain grunge will live forever we all miss you and we know your watching dave from heaven
kurt is the voice of my generation!He spoke his heart and mind out and not for selling records to these trendyasses!! He is the voice of those who suffers in this terrible world of violence and prejudice! - pratica
Kurt Cobain had something that so many others try to imitate. As I type this he is placed at #18, but will always be #1 to me. Love you forever Kurt xo
"AMAZING! Just the rasp of his voice turns me on He should be number 1 on this list all the way"V 20 Comments
Tom's one of the best nowadays Frontmen! For me he's unique! He's a brilliant singer, with such a powerful and stunning vocal range. His Live performances are awesome and magical, his voice sounds exactly as on the records, perhaps even more amazing, as he sings with so much passion and gives his all heart & soul on stage. He's genuine and so very sincere, doesn't hide any emotion and creates with the crowd such an unique bond of complicity and also something even more rare, I believe - a bond of love! Not forgetting that he can sing with the same flawlessness an energetic rock tune or a heavenly ballad - his voice comes directly from heaven, for sure!
Tom's voice is one of the most beautiful, pure and powerful I've ever heard. He is able to brilliantly sing all kinds of songs, to reach the hardes notes, to sound even better live that on records, which is TRULY something nowadays, and to sing for a whole room without even needing a microphone. As if that wasn't enough, he has an incredible stage presence and an amazing way of really connecting with the crowd and of making you feel that you are an important part of the moment.
Tom Chaplin is, in my opinion, the male Adele. No, I don't at all mean that he looks like her or something like that, but his voice is flawless, powerful, and almost indescribable. I truly believe he has one of the best voices of the decade. Aside from is voice, Tom is a fantastic live performer, still hitting every note on stage, and to top it off, he has enormous stage-presence.
Tom totally deserves top ten - he has a voice of pure talent, no autotune needed hereV 102 Comments
Not a huge fan of 30 Seconds to Mars, but I have to admit that Leto is a very skilled vocalist with a great voice and range.
One amazingly talented individual. He seriously has no competition with these others. His vibe, energy and overall compassion for music is flawless.
He is insanely talented you have no idea what this man is capable of. He cares about the echelon an the environment, animals, less-fortunate people. He is more than just a pretty face.
Lmao... who the fk is actually voting for this guy? Yes, I love his acting presence and rate a few of his songs, but he doesn't even make the top 500.V 10 Comments
Axl Rose is the frontman of the most dangerous band in the world. He sings, plays piano, rant about what is happening in his life, he controls the audience to see if there is somebody that will get hurt. Many people think that he is dumb, but they are just hypocrites unlike Axl who is very real in his action and words. He didn't fake any single thing that he did. - ronluna
Is the best frontman easily. He shows a lot of passion on stage and is the heart of GnR.
1. Axl Rose
2. Freddie Mercury(R. I. P)
3. Steven Tyler
4. Jon Bon Jovi
5. Kurt Cobain(R. I. P) - i-love-rock-n-roll
Axl Rose Is Without A Doubt Rocks Greatest Frontman. It ia a disgrace and insult to rock to see jared leto bon jovi etc at ther top of this list - voodooaxl
#1. Only Freddie is close.V 22 Comments
One of the greatest frontmen and entertainers of all time, no one can do a show as 'Diamond' David Lee Roth! Split leaps, kicks, and his one and only voice is what a real Heavy metal frontman is made of! Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the originall, the one and only: David Lee Roth!
David Lee Roth got the crowd going evertime he put on a live show doing high flying ariel spin kicks doing and split leap off the drum stage.
This man is legendary when it comes to performance live. - OzzyVanHalen
A frontman should be charismatic, able to draw the spotlight to himself, while commanding the attention of the audience, and Diamond Dave was a master at it.
Him being number 12 is wrong. Agree Freddie is number one but Diamond Dave should be number 2.V 9 Comments
Beautiful man, beautiful singer/songwriter and the man is intelligent which is very refreshing in a lead singer of a band. He knows what he wants and wont compromise on his standards. VERY underestimated songwriter, his songs can bring me to tears, make me scream and smile, and his music is the only thing that gets me through the day at times when I need something that will bring me out of my depths of despair cause he has been there too, its like he senses what us fans feel too. Hey I could go on forever praising this wonderful man, but unless you listen to him and HIM yourself you will never understand what I'm talking about... In our eyes he is NUMBER ONE!
Ville Valo's ability to be the best at everything that the lead singer and songwriter should be he can provoke the emotion of the song with his gestures and mannerisms on stage and in music videos. Ville's vocal range is also one of his many talents he mainly is a baritone singer but he can hit high notes as well which is an amazing feat to accomplice.
Ville Valo is witty, charismatic and just someone who you can relate to on one level or another. He bears his heart and feelings in his music and lyrics and allows you to peer into the deep ends of his soul in the songs. His voice is magnificent in the range that it can cover, and he is a rare talent that you get very very rarely specially in these times.
The best songwriter in the last two decades... not exaggerating!V 44 Comments
The best child/male frontman ever.. all because when you see him with his band called the jackson 5, it always send you smiling with fascination and adoration... all because he is so young and so cute but he can pull up a voice that's so far from his age, he dances like an expert even at 7... he can already groove like that of James Brown's and many other influences by just merely looking and observing them plus with an age not more than 10 - graciadolinobv
His voice is just unique and make me feel loved when I was alone. Many people don't understand him and judge because they believe everything they read in magazines. He was an amazing artist and person, and also have a really special place in my heart
I'll never forget you Mike
Michael Jackson... oh ya... The best frontman... he knew how to get a crowd interested in what he had to offer... his sex appeal, his genuine love for the stage and giving his 100 effort in every show. He was a leader and a genius showman for sure... RIP love xo him forever - love4mjj
Should be higher come on how does j leto beat this guyV 5 Comments
Ozzy is arguabley the greatest and Eddie Vedder, chester from linkin park, sting, and jon bon jovi are ahead of him? Ugh that makes my stomach hurt knowing theres people who believe that - ChrisHenry
Ozzy should definitely be higher on the list
who else bites the heads off live animals on stage
Steve Perry is the most amazing singer I have ever heard, and he is responsible for co-writing many timeless hits. Journey is well known for their long and strenuous tours. Perry was able to not only sing every night, but each night he reached heights which most singers can only dream of. Along with his seemingly endless range, Steve Perry was capable of singing with such emotion so as to give life to each song. He raised the bar for live performances, singing each song with near perfection, and usually better than the studio versions. To not appreciate what Perry has done is a sad thing.
Ok I am going to say right now, any spot other than top 3 is a plain insult to this guy. There are few frontman that have ever lived that had as much vocal range as Perry. The guy was an amazing vocalist to say the least.
I have been a huge fan of Journey for so many years and I don't think Steve is appreciated enough. He will always be my favorite singer and his voice is second to none.
Stellar vocals and so sexy! He can kill any song.V 1 Comment
Are you actually joking...17th? Wow, people don't know true talent when they see it, this man could scream, this man knew how to live the rock lifestyle, he knew how to write, he knew how to write a song and by god... HE KNEW HOW TO SING! He deserves at least top 5, along with, Freddie Mercury, Robert plant, Jim Morrison and Mick Jagger!
What is this? Come on he should be number one. He can front a band better then anyone that has ever been born. He could sing and write like a god, he is god. Just like the other guy wrote, Bon is the reason why I love rock. Salute
Bon Scott is the best frontman, he had a great voice, he brought plenty of energy, and he put on a show. Some of these singers just stand there at the microphone and shake their ass. - mobrules
GREATEST FRONTMAN OF ALL TIME!, NOT TO MENTION HE WAS A LYRICAL GENUS AND WROTE SOME OF THE BEST LYRICS Of All TIMEV 5 Comments
Most influential and he's legendary because of his controversy and music. Though his music isn't the hardest, they were hard in their time and was nevertheless great. He's awesome and he did point out several things that changed rock history forever: legends come to an end and rock is about sex and drugs. I believe all rock stars got the idea about sex, drugs and rock and roll from Jim Morrison, being among the first. He's got a wild personality and a great singing voice. He could also come up with the best lyrics and meanings to songs. He's a legend!
Jim Morrison is a very sexy, creative frontman. I love it when I would watch clips of The Doors performing live and would see Jim wearing black boots and tight, sexy leather pants. He also makes me melt when I would hear him say one of his poems and would hear him sing
The original bad boy of rock and roll. Jagger changed his whole persona after seeing Morrison. I remember the Stones on Ed Sullivan in their little sailor suits. This is where Jagger didn't have the balls to sing the original lyrics to a Rolling Stones song. "Let's spend some time together? " That was great Mick.
The original. Often copied, never equalled. As far as frontmen go, there's before Jim Morrison and after Jim Morrison. Nothing contrived here. Jim Morrison had lots of fire in his soul and was the first not affraid to show it. As a vocalist he set the tone too with his bestial screams from deep within the soul. Game changer.V 16 Comments
Jon is the best frontman ever! He rocks the stadium with 70.000 fans and all have a great party. And he make that you think he is singing only for you. He is amazing!
Damn, he may not be as musically talented as many other singers are, but he can put on one hell of a show
One of the few rockers who actually got better looking with age. Wow.
When you think of lead singers, Jon Bon Jovi "Always" comes to mind. Don't hate my opinions because "It's my Life". - vadnj0V 4 Comments
