63 Lzzy Hale Lzzy Hale Elizabeth Mae "Lzzy" Hale is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. She is best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the American hard rock band Halestorm, which she co-founded in 1997.

Should be at the top, her voice is EPIC!

Everything Lzzy lends her voice to is amazing.

Top 3 at least. Come on!

The Queen of Rock. Deal with it.
Freddie and Robert are easily my top picks too... and then I heard Lzzy sing. There's nothing like it. Ever.

64 David Draiman David Draiman David Michael Draiman is an American songwriter and the vocalist for the band Disturbed as well as for the band Device.

This dudes voice is so unique and out there. Why is he not on here?

His music has really changed my look on life!

His cover of Sound of Silence says it all!

65 Bono Bono Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".

Perhaps other people can sing better from a technical perspective, but nobody can sing more convincingly than Bono. One in a million performer. Nobody can perform like him.

I think he deserves to be on this list. He's an amazing singer, part of one of the world's greatest bands, humanitarian and song writer. What else can you ask for?

Greatest songwriter of all time, and as for the vocals, there out of this world.

U2 fans probably don't know this voting page otherwise Bono would be in the top 5 as he should be!

Tuck has the very best metalcore voice, I ever heard

67 Billy Joel Billy Joel

I really don't know why he is so low. So much better than any newer rock performers.

Billy Joel is great, he should be higher, like number 4, after geddy, roger daltry and robert plant.

68 Anthony Kiedis Anthony Kiedis Anthony Kiedis is an American singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers, which he has fronted since its inception in 1983.

Anthony Kiedis is the best! He is doing great in the red hot chili peppers, and he is really talented. - Vero0279

Listen to under the bridge great voice and lyrics -

COVERDALE! Best voice in history of rock

70 Joe Elliott

Joe DEFINITELY deserves to be top 10. You can tell the emotion of every song by how he uses his voice, like in Love Bites, Mirror Mirror, and SO many others. Joe Elliott rocks this world and deserves to be in the top 10.

NUFF SAID!

Just listen to Soul Punk... his voice is beautiful. I wouldn't usually put an artist that is so mainstream now, but he can sing rock. And he can sing pop. And he can sing everything. And it's amazing.

Patrick Stump is simply just one of the best.

77 Greg Puciato
78 Joe Cocker Joe Cocker John Robert "Joe" Cocker was an English singer and musician. He was known for his gritty voice, spasmodic body movement in performance and definitive versions of popular songs.
79 hyde

Were this an international list, HYDE would be at the top.

Top of the charts rocking Japan for more than 20 years (though he still looks in his 20's), with an avid international following, as vocalist for L'Arc~en~Ciel, as well as his solo work, and vocalist for VAMPS, hyde's vocal range and ability to sing rock without distortion make it difficult for anyone else to cover songs written for him. Passionate and expressive, pure and sweet, sorrowful and heartbreaking, fierce and sexual - people only have to hear him, to want more.

80 Gerard Way Gerard Way Gerard Arthur Way is an American singer, songwriter, musician, and comic book writer who was the lead vocalist and co-founder of the American alternative rock band My Chemical Romance from its formation in September 2001 until its split in March 2013. His debut solo album Hesitant Alien was released more.

62? Good joke... Gerard had the most amazing voice of our time. The world of music never was the same when my chemical romance got separated. His voice will be missed by many many people around the world. Number 1 in my list and heart. Cause he had the magic of a legend in his voice. And yes I'm refering to THE legend Freddy Mercury. Long live Gerard Way. This list is wrong on so many levels.

Gerard Way's voice is awesome! I have never heard a voice as unique and captivating as his. I think he should definitely be rated higher!

Gerard way is a topnotch singer I have ever seen
Performance was captivating
Looks neat
He's like a lease which comes from another planet
He is a world best singer
My chemical romance keep going!

He is honestly one of the best singers of the early 21st century he has an amazing and powerful voice
