Best Male Frontmen


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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.

62 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

63 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 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

64 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.

Best ever

65 Eddie Vedder Eddie Vedder Eddie Vedder is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as a member of the rock band Pearl Jam, with whom he performs lead vocals and is one of three guitarists.

Are you joking? At 51 years old, Eddie Vedder has more energy than half the people on here, and he's at 52? Not to mention his always imitated (but never duplicated) growl. Definitely top 10, if not top 5 material. That's not even the best part. He doesn't believe in being a frontman. He wants all the band to get credit. But I'm voting for him anyway, because Eddie Vedder is awesome.

Passion and Emotion pretty much describes what he brings to the table. Seeing some of these rankings shows the average 'age' to be young. I'm not old, but respect what has come before. Seeing some of this shows that people really haven't listened to a ton of music that are voting.

Definitely should be in the top 10. He's brilliant

If you have never seen jarvis in action, you have really missed something unique!

Need to see this guy live to understsnd. Or YouTube one of their music videos. The guy is full of energy and very caramstic.

67 Deuce (9Lives)

Sure he can be an ass but he knows how to lead a band and take the stage to be the center of attention

68 Vincent Cavanagh
69 Ryan Key

71 Tyson Ritter (All American Rejects)

Wonderful Voice, very enjoyable to hear the passion he puts into his lyrics.

72 Danny O'Donoghue

He is the best and the greatest at least top 20

73 Zack De La Roca

he is amazing and a great live performer

74 Liam Gallagher Liam Gallagher William John Paul "Liam" Gallagher is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. He rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye.

NOBODY can beat his style... Mixture of arrogance+ charisma... Totally badass... His walk his talk everything tells me he is the best frontman ever!

The best singer of all time. His voice is pure magic as is his style. The singer of the best band ever! LIAM GALLAGHER SHOULD BE NUMBER 1!

As far as frontmen go, he was one of the best, the very definition of what a rockstar is.

The stage presence Liam possesses in unrivaled. Captivating character and an electric voice.

Listen to Carnival of Rust.

Simply the best. Emotional and very touching.

In love with him!

His songs are amazing

77 Dave Gahan (Depeche Mode)

Love them or hate them (Music), Dave Gahan is by far one of the best frontmen. His stage persona is heavily influenced by Elvis, Mick Jagger, Freddy Mercury and Prince. He sings awesome, dances great & keeps the fans involved in the concert. Watch any live performance and you will understand why. His stage presence ranks with Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison.

No other band has stayed at the top of their game for as long or with the same level of consistency as Depeche Mode. This is in no small part due to the man who has out sung out gyrated out partied and ultimately outlasted everyone of his peers. Dave Gahan.

Why? Great voice, even after 30 years, charisma and his live performances. Without him, we would never know such a band like Depeche Mode.

Dave Gahan should be in top 10 list not 77.

78 Layne Staley Layne Staley Layne Thomas Staley was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains, which he founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in Seattle, Washington in 1987. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. more.

He captured everyone in audience with his power voice and vocal abilities. He may not have been flamboyant as some of the others on this list, but he didn't need to be... His presence said it all. RIP Layne

Layne is GOD.
Kurt is great too, but Layne had much more of an impact. AIC FOREVER.

greatest rock voice of all time its an insult to even speak of Kurt Cobain in the same voice

He's below Chris Martin and Adam Levine. Honestly people...

79 Adam Levine Adam Levine Adam Noah Levine is an American singer and songwriter. He is the lead vocalist for the Los Angeles pop rock band Maroon 5.

Come on people he should be higher up!

80 Michael Hutchence Michael Hutchence Michael Kelland John Hutchence (22 January 1960 – 22 November 1997) was an Australian musician and actor. He was a founding member, lead singer and lyricist of rock band INXS from 1977 until his death in 1997.

I really can't believe he is so far down the list. If we are truly talking a band which is a some of its parts he should be top 10. Great voice, charisma and sex appeal. Songwriter, etc are not necessary. These are different skills and should not be lumped in. He took INXS songs to another level. Bono, doesn't touch him. No matter how much he might try he has absolutely no sex appeal. This is an absolute must. Being a musical genius is not necessary. All the best - Jagger, Scott, Plant, Morrison, Keidis - have this in common. A lot of these entries are self-concious and fashionable. Liam Gallagher, Jared Leto - get real. Elvis, Jackson and Springsteen are solo performers really not integral to a band.

Come on #42 you've got to be joking... Michael Hutchence was one of the greatest male front men of all time. Definite top 10 material!

Wasn't a fan when they were around but started listening to them years back and saw the genius.

Michael was the Jim Morrison of the 80s & 90s. I grew up in Sydney, watching INXS, in pubs, where the crowds at a good gig, would destroy the pub, just to create more area to do your own thing. Most gigs we would be high on something...what memories!
