41 M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold) Matthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

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...

45 Brandon Flowers (The Killers) Brandon Flowers (The Killers)

Number 10!?
He should be number 1!
And who the hell is gackt!? - Sharpy6868

Great song writer and singer. There is no one like him performance wise yesterday, today or tomorrow.

It was tough to decide between Brandon and James Hetfield, but my vote goes to Brandon... - Overdose

Great frontman. I'd put him at #3 behind Freddie Mercury, and Dee Snider. "The Killers, Live at Royal Albert Hall" is a great performance by him and the band.

49 Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

This man is a genius. His songwriting is brilliant, he's a fantastic singer and guitarist, but most of all he is the best showman I have ever seen. He has a way of holding an audience in the palm of his hand, with a lot of sexuality, a lot of fun and a whole load of talent!

Absolutely Amazing! Especiallly at live performances!

Billie has so much energy and passion, and he's great at interacting and involving the fans!

This list is ridiculous. Billie deserves to be in the top THREE. His lyrics, passion, energy, is timeless. This man has done it ALL live, even performed naked on stage before. His spot number need to be higher. Really, no frontman is able to compete in the same level as Billie, when it comes to the band performing live.

Billie Joe Armstrong rules he is amazing!

John was a Great musician and personality. He was a fighter. He was a fire. He was a bright. He was a TRUE! And he always live in my heart and hearts of many other people.

He is the best frontman...both in music and personality - coccoreccy

best frontman, one of the craziest performer, a multi-instrumentalist, a very cool person, a great lyrist (his lyrics are beyond deep blue sea), a heartrob even if he has a wife, he rocks the stage with his amazing vocals and also he has a great sense of humour that the audience love. - ronluna

He can SING so beautifully, He knows how to rocks with guitar, He always able to amaze us with ballad performance till rock music. He is capable to WRITE songs, He has been a LEGEND till now. I believe there's no other frontman like that... EVER!

lyrics that touch the heart or make the blood run in excitement, voice that quakes whether high or really low, looks that can make even guys swoon -- he's the best frontman EVER.

HYDE is amazing! I love his voice and his songs are really touching! he is the greatest frontman ever!

He originally found success as the lead singer and lyricist for Deep Purple, and the original singer on the rock opera concept album Jesus Christ Superstar by Andrew Lloyd Webber, where Gillan had the leading role (Jesus Christ).

53 Paul Stanley Paul Stanley Stanley Bert Eisen, known professionally by his stage name Paul Stanley, is an American musician, singer, songwriter and painter best known for being the rhythm guitarist and co-lead singer of the rock band Kiss.

Why so low? I have no idea! Paul Stanley #1 no doubt about it! The charismatic, sexy, charming, talented, energetic, upbeat front man of KISS! A living rock legend. His wailing vocals are sub par and are like that of none other! He's pushing 60 for heaven's sake! BUT he can put on better shows than anyone or any other band I've ever seen, when you go to see a KISS concert you know you did the right thing with your money! Paul Stanley's uncanny ability to go from high range vocals to low is magnificent! As a front man he does more than just sing! He plays rhythm guitar as well as song writing! HE is the heart and soul of KISS. His singing will knock your sock off! Just listen to Love gun, or any other KISS song and you'll see what I'm talkin' about! And boy do the women go CRAZY over this hunk of a man!

He should be #1!
He really gets the crowd to interact, he even "flies" to the audience at one point in the show! THE best singer to DATE! His voice is SO cool!
He can really sing! And a great entertainer!

I can't believe he's so low in this list! Should definitely be #1! Nearly 60 years old and still sexy as hell! One of the greatest, and certainly most unique voices around!

Paul Stanley is one of the best singers I've ever heard, his voice is like a opera singer on crack!!

54 Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) Roger Waters (Pink Floyd) George Roger Waters, is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He was mostly known for the secondary lead vocals and bassist of Pink Floyd .

Roger Waters is great, but he's not the frontman.

David Gilmore is actually the frontman

WHY IS ROGER WATERS ALL THE WAY DOWN HERE?!

55 Corey Taylor Corey Taylor Corey Todd Taylor was born in December 8, 1973. He is an American musician, author, and actor best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the Nu-metal band Slipknot and hard rock/alternative metal band Stone Sour.

Best Frontman ever... both SlipKnoT and Stone Sour... - skt

I love Corey Taylor! Slipknot Stonesour. Two hit bands at the same time. Talk about not wasting your talent. He busts his ASS to make his music. One of the front men of all time.

56 Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Burnley Benjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

Ben's voice is absolutely incredible and his songwriting ability is top notch.

57 David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) David Gilmour (Pink Floyd) David Jon Gilmour is an English singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He joined the progressive rock band Pink Floyd as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968.

He's not my favourite he's probably my fourth but the man is one of the worlds best guitarists ever and singers, he has an amazing voice with so much emotion and power it can put you to sleep. The guy is however old and still going and still sounds just as great as he did in the 70s 80s etc. He deserves some credit he is a rock God!
My list:
1. Bon Scott
2. Brian Johnson
3. Axl Rose
4. David Gilmour
5. Mark Knopfler
6. Anthony from red hot chilli peppers

58 Mark Hoppus Mark Hoppus Mark Allan Hoppus is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and television personality best known as the bassist and co-lead vocalist for the pop punk band Blink-182. Born in Ridgecrest, California, Hoppus spent his childhood moving back and forth between his mother and father's ...read more.

Very important in Blink-182 and the longest lasting member, but he isn't the actual frontman, so he should not on the list, sorry. Tom DeLonge is the actual frontman of Blink-182. - AnimeDrawer

59 Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) ...read more.

Attitude and skill. Vicious guitarist!

60 Chris Cornell Chris Cornell Chris Cornell was an American rock musician and singer-songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden and as former lead vocalist and songwriter for the supergroup Audioslave. He died on May 17, 2017.

Dude, just listen to Slaves and Bulldozers, or anything by Soundgarden and you will realise that Chris is the greatest frontman ever.

Indeed, he is good... a lot - Battlegun

This man can S I N G.

Gotta git chris up the list.. Although I wouldn't pick him for greatest frontman... his singing is easily top 5
