His screaming is brutal, mostly on 3 Dollar Bill Y'all$, and that pretty much makes up for everything else that he might lack. Definitely should be higher up in the ranks, especially seeing a couple that shouldn't be there

31 Pete Loeffler - Chevelle
Cleanest screams, and best well timed in my opinion... Should be ranked higher, maybe around 10th or so... Band itself, unfortunately! Only downfall, and maybe the ranking, from live shows I have seen, seems to back off on intensity of screams heard on recordings...
Amazing vocals, great range, the ability to sing and scream at the same time makes him sound better than most singers.
Just listen--please just listen--to his scream near the end of Comfortable Liar
Pete is the best simply put

35 Bert McCracken - The Used
He should definitely be higher up. He should be in the top 3, he's better than most of the people on this list, and if you don't agree listen to choke me, sound effects and overdramatics, box full of sharp objects and listening. He is even better live when he adds in extra, more intense screams.
36 Tom Araya - Slayer
Tomás Enrique "Tom" Araya Díaz is a Chilean American musician, best known as the bassist and vocalist of the American thrash metal band Slayer.
37 Paul McCartney - The Beatles
Sir James Paul McCartney is an English singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer . 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 .
Second only to Little Richard. Screamers that followed only did so because McCartney (and to a slightly lesser extend, Lennon) did it so well.
38 Robert Plant
Robert Anthony Plant is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin. V 1 Comment

Great vocal range in his scream. Listen to Unleash Hell, never trust the hazel eyed, some like it cold and air raid siren.
40 David Lee Roth

David Lee Roth should be second behind Steven Tyler
