Best Male Frontmen


The Contenders: Page 5

81 Michael Hutchence Michael Hutchence

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.

Beautiful Bad Boy. Gotta Love him

86 Brian Johnson (AC/DC) Brian Johnson (AC/DC) Brian Johnson is an English singer and songwriter. Since 1980, he is the lead singer of the Australian rock band AC/DC, with whom he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. As of April 2016, Johnson is not participating in the remainder of the Rock or Bust World Tour due to hearing more.

Brian Johnson, Bon Scott, Axl Rose, Dave Gilmore, Mark Knopfler, Freddie Mercury are the best and that wasn't in order but seriously come on Brian Johnson has been the singer for ACDC for over 35 years and still going strong surely he deserves a bit of respect

i think he needs more credit. he has one of the best, if not THE best voices that fans of progressive rock and metal have ever heard, and you are just deaf if you can't realize that.

maynard could easily be in the top spot. he has one of the greatest voices the world has ever heard, if not THE greatest.

the way he moves on stage, really gets you in the mood. and a haunting voice - gouchesweat

Amazing! Need to see them live to appreciate Tool and front man Maynard.
