Best Post-grunge Singers

List of best post-grunge vocalists made by my taste so it's normal to disagree just don't be a douche about it.

The Top Ten

1 Chad Kroeger (Nickelback) Chad Kroeger (Nickelback) Chad Robert Kroeger is a Canadian musician and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Canadian rock band, Nickelback.

You can like them or hate them but put the hate away for a minute and look it from a different perspective he has a sick vocal range and he can make his voice so clean or gritty depends on a song. They are the most successful post grunge band and for a reason, they are so diverse in rock genres ranging from hard rock/metal songs to ballads and post grunge/grunge songs( first 3 albums).

Jerry cantrell, dimebag, vinnie paul, billy gibbons, dave mustaine have supported the band through the years and such big names in the rock and metal history see something that many people are to ignorant to see... and that's that nickelback simply rocks and is an awesome talented band!

Best vocalist I guess no one can replicate him... And a great guitarist too from metal riffs to classic sound... People hates him because no one is as good as him... Lols

Damn I love his voice.. I don't mind to listen him everyday of my life..

2 Gavin Rossdale (Bush)

Here's a singer with a voice made for grunge and with songs like Little things, headful of ghosts and comedown will make you believe that!

3 Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge) Myles Richard Kennedy is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Alter Bridge, and as the lead vocalist in Slash's current band: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.
4 Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known as the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.

Dave Grohl takes this by a mile! It's insulting to be behind the frontman of Nickelback, and the Foo Fighters are phenomenal.

Why is this not in the top 3? Nickelback singer is 1? This list is so messed up... foo fighters is the best post grunge band ever.

This isn't about who is the better band but the vocal abilities that Chad from nickelback have far more than grohl!

5 Adam Gontier (Three Days Grace) Adam Gontier (Three Days Grace) Adam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

Here's another singer with a really awesome, unique voice! They are a really good band and if you don't know them check out songs like : wake up, never too late, just like you, eddie

Can belt high tenor notes to a point that makes me jealous. He can sing metal or ballads if he needs to and I just have to say well done and good luck Adam wherever you go.

Adam Gontier is not just the best post-grunge singer. People may disagree with this, but to me, he's the best singer ever!

He used to be #1 on this list and he should've stayed there.

6 Aaron Lewis (Staind) Aaron Lewis (Staind) Aaron Lewis is an American musician, who is the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and founding member of the rock group Staind, with whom he has released seven studio albums.

Strong, unique voice, sick range and the band rocks with songs like outside, it's been awhile, raw, me and so on...

Watch him live acousticily and you will understand that he is one of the best

7 Sully Erna (Godsmack) Sully Erna (Godsmack) Salvatore Paul "Sully" Erna is the American vocalist and guitarist for the American hard rock band Godsmack.
8 Brett Scallions

Completely under-rated. Very melodic, yet raspy and completely ruthless screams back in the Sunburn days. Sounded fantastic live as well. Not many of the other lead vocalists of this era could have pulled off the acoustic version of Elton John's "Daniel" the way he did. Best singer of the late 90's to early 2000's, hands down.

Brett has got nasty, reckless distortion to his voice and can also sing with passion. No whine or nasal is his voice at all. His range isn't huge, but his ability should have put him in the top 10 on this list.

Great voice, he brought Fuel's hit songs to life with his tone, melody and depth of emotion. Right up there at the top of my list for the 90's along with Staley and Cantrell.

Should be much higher. This guy has an incredible voice.

9 Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty) Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty) Robert Kelly "Rob" Thomas is an American singer, songwriter, record producer and multi-instrumentalist, best known as the primary songwriter and lead singer of the band Matchbox Twenty.

They were a grunge band in the 90's but they've became more pop rock... I still like them I just like their oldest 2 albums better. Listen to Push, Kody, Bent, Long day

Amazing...

10 Brent Smith (Shinedown) Brent Smith (Shinedown) Brent Stephen Smith is an American singer and songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist of the band Shinedown.

Very strong voice and it's a good band.

Raw. Powerful. Brent has amazing vocal tone and control.

Not just an amazing singer but an amazing song writer

The Contenders

11 Scott Stapp (Creed) Scott Stapp (Creed) Scott Stapp is an American singer, songwriter, and musician, known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of hard rock bands Creed and Art of Anarchy. He also has two solo albums: The Great Divide and Proof of Life.

Dude was pure magic. Weathered was their best album.

12 Ben Burnley (Breaking Benjamin) Ben Burnley (Breaking Benjamin) 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.

I've just started listening to this band and their rock! Good vocals, lyrics and riffs.

Pure awesomeness! And he ROCKS! He can be world famous if Ben does not have that flying phobia... (but still HE ROCKS! )

Oh god what is Nickelback doing up there? They can't even be compared to the awesomeness of Breaking Benjamin! There is not a single song that I don't like and Ben's voice is heavenly and beautifully melodic and his death growls that nobody can beat just perfect! Easy to say that BB should be on top! #1

Pure awesomeness! And they really do ROCK

13 Shaun Morgan (Seether) Shaun Morgan (Seether) Shaun Morgan Welgemoed, known publicly as Shaun Morgan, is a South African musician and singer for the post-grunge/alternative metal band Seether.

Totally underrated band; this guy has an amazingly talented voice. Melodic and soft tones, building up into harsh screams. My definite pick, and absolute favorite band. All my vote are belong to this. Don't believe me? Check them out for yourself, you wont regret it.

Him and Brent Smith are the best by far. The other bands on here are just more famous and a lot more commercial

14 Ed Kowalczyk (Live)
15 Austin Winkler (Hinder)

Very good, raspy voice but I miss their grungier songs like they did in the past. Now they just switch from hard rock songs to ballads (similar too nickelback).

16 Tyler Connolly (Theory Of A Deadman) Tyler Connolly (Theory Of A Deadman) Tyler Conolly was born August 26th 1975, he is a Canadian singer of the alternative rock band Theory of a Deadman, whom have realized five albums.

I prefer his voice in the first album it had a more rasp and depth to it but it's still awesome know and their live performances have improved.

17 Ed Sloan (Crossfade)

Probably the most underrated band on the list and it's hard to believe with a voice like that!

Ed is an unbelievable musician, songwriter and vocalist. His biggest problem is that he is ahead of his time. The world just wasn't ready for his genius. I was rocking some crossfade earlier today thinking "Damn, these guys wrote some pretty intricate songs"

This guy is around 45 or so and looks and sounds like he's 25, a southern rocker that not many people pay attention to, this guy can shred on the guitar and pull some amazing vocal skills, its crazy how most artists sound better on CD than they do live but with him it's the exact opposite he's a very talented musician and in my opinion deserves to be above Chad kroeger in this list.

So sad that Ed Sloan is underrated here... Best of voice talent came out in his songs like:1. Cold
2. Invincilbe
3. Deep end
4. Colours
5. No goving Up - anandinvu00eectusu00d0

18 Wes Scantlin (Puddle of Mudd) Wes Scantlin (Puddle of Mudd) Wesley Reid "Wes" Scantlin is an American songwriter, lead singer, guitarist, and the only remaining founding member of the American post-grunge band Puddle of Mudd.

Wes Scantlin here, deserves to be higher in the list. There is no way that Tyler Connolly can be better than him. He deserved to be located in the Top Tens.

19 Ian Thornley (Big Wreck)

Awesome voice with great range

20 Scooter Ward (Cold)
