Best Male Frontmen


The Contenders: Page 2

21 Matt Bellamy (Muse)

Matt bellamy is by far the most diverse, orginal musician of the 21st century as his guitar and piano skills are off the charts.

but muse have become the best live show in the world in the last ten years though they would never admit it.

if you don't believe it watch the live performances of plug in baby, newborn and knights of cydonia - hystericalcitizen

I don't even need to say why Matt Bellamy is the most incredible frontman. Have you not SEEN him in concert? I can't believe he's 20th, he should be first and those of you who didn't vote for Matt are just... Just oblivious.

He's inimitable. He sings, plays guitar, piano, writes music and lyrics, and everything he does, he does it unbeliveably, tremendously well! Matt is a genious and he's #1 forever. - 23delusions

Of the 21st century frontmen, Matt Bellamy takes the cake. Best, most talented frontman of our times.

22 Morten Harket Morten Harket Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released ten studio albums and topped the charts internationally after their breakthrough hit "Take on Me" in 1985.

Morten is the best male voice on earth, he deserves the first place. He gives wings to a song. Let one of the vocalist in the list here sing an a-ha song, maybe "Summer Moved On" or "Hunting High And Low", I'm sure they all will fail. A-ha songs are so difficult and complicated to sing and Morten is so perfect in giving this songs a soul

Morten might not be a big entertainer, but he has an unique voice and that "special something" that blows you away

He was, is and will always be the number 1. He is the best male voice on earth. Freddie Mercury and Morten should be number 1 in this list because both have an amazing vocal range and so much emotion in their voices. By the way, Morten is also the most beautiful men/singer.

No one is able to sing like Morten Harket! No need other words!

Should be top 5. Amazing talent. Everything he touches turns to gold. He also seems to love his fans and we all love him back!

When I saw the Foo Fighters live, dave was super energetic. You don't even need to know the songs to enjoy it. He gets everyone involved. You have an awesome time no matter what. Should be at least top 10

Best there is in my opinion. Very entertaining. Every show is different and he brings everybody in. Doesn't matter if it's 1000 or 60 000 people. Legend!

the best front man of all time by far, just an amazing guy with amazing talent, amazes me that he's not in the top 10 - sharty

Pure genius. No one has better lyrics. His voice is up and down the scales. Simply amazing. Soothing songs like Aerials or songs like Chop Suey! where he pours his heart out in the end. The best.

Hes a songwriter, singer, multi-intrumentalist, poet, political activist. etc. - CaptainComedy17

This guy is insane, probably the best singer in the 21st century

27 Steven Tyler Steven Tyler Steven 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.

Should be at number one, this is absolutely ridiculous, jared leto? Whats with the obsession of him? Jonathan davis? Influential on metal but not for his stage presence, at 64 steven tyler is still enertaining crowds, look at videos of him in the 80's and he was in his late 30's early 40's, without him there is no axl rose or energetic glam frontmen, he knows how to enertain a crowd, plus aerosmith is amazing, so stoked to see them on tour this summer

One voice and crazy ass flips and jumps on stage that will never be forgotten!

Out of Gas Now but they were wicked back in the Day,

With John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, he gained worldwide fame with the rock band the Beatles, one of the most popular and influential groups in the history of pop and rock music .

I love the Beatles, but they don't have a front. All of them were equal in that way. Paul wasn't the frontman. John wasn't the frontman.

He is simply magnificent. He can handle everything that a real frontman has to handle. His vocals are great, awesome guitar playing and he has a huge talent as a producer.

34 Gackt Gackt

I thought I'd "seen it all" and there came Gackt Diabolos Tour and the LIVE HORSE RIDING! I don't think there are any currently live shows as professionally and elegantly put together as Gackt's these days.
Japanese and korean audiences are REALLY lucky to be able to witness his shows.

He just should be far the first ever!
Gackt is best frontmen, singer, compocer, musician and like a person forever. - Lucius

There was an amateur band, then Gackt and Malice Mizer, then an amateur-like band again...

his voice is awesome)))
Hope he'll be the best))
wish good luck to other guys))

Please excuse me while I wipe the drool from my lip. If a man can get any more amazing, please let me know.

Effortless power from a vocal range with such perfect timbre that it melts your face!

This man is not only a great singer but he also has one hell of a stage presence.
Not a note is ever off and he makes many vocal legends look like amateurs.

One of the few frontmen along with Corey Taylor Johnathon Davis, and David Draiman whose voice sounds the exact same as it does in the studio, as on the set.

He is the guy! Not only the greatest vocalist ever but also has got thebest band.Why he is at 37? Should be at top three at least...
