Best Male Frontmen


The Contenders: Page 4

61 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.

just the best

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

65 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and humanitarian. He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political more.
66 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was a American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. more.

Elvis deserves way more than to be where he is. He wasn't called the "World's Greatest Entertainer for nothing" and he's been dead for 34 years and he's still making more money than a large percentage of the people on here.

67 Matt Tuck (bullet for my valentine)

OMFG! matt should be in the top 3 4 sure. listen to the scream aim fire album. that shows off his singing voice and his guitar work! - DopeWithABass

71 Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix Jimi Hendrix (born November 27, 1942 - September 18, 1970) was an American rock guitarist, singer, and songwriter . Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated more.

Hendrix 160. Give me a break.

72 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

75 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.

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...

77 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!

78 Angus Young Angus Young Angus McKinnon Young is an Australian guitarist of Scottish origin, best known as the co-founder, lead guitarist, songwriter and sole constant member of the Australian hard rock band AC/DC. When performing live he does his own version of Chuck Berry's "duck walk" and has also spun on his side while more.

Although he doesn't sing, Angus is practically the man up front and the image of AC/DC.

Best frontmen does not have to mean best singer.

Why is he on the list he's the best guitarist in the world

He's not the frontman, Bon Scott & Brian Johnson are.

79 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!

80 Sid Vicious Sid Vicious John Beverly, born John Simon Ritchie, later named Sid Vicious, was an English musician, most famous as the bass guitarist of the influential punk rock band the Sex Pistols, and notorious for his arrest for the alleged murder of his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen.

No way. I had to vote to register an opinion, but next to Johnny Rotten he was just a wannabe. His performance of My Way is laughable.
