I would say one of the most unique voices in the world. incredible man, rocked the words balls off. rock in piece

83 Chino Moreno Chino Moreno Chino Moreno is an American musician. He is best known as the lead vocalist and contributing guitarist of Deftones.

Unique wisper thing.
And an atherial sound no body can match.

85 Serj Tankian Serj Tankian Serj Tankian is a Lebanese-born Armenian-American singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, poet, and political activist.

I'm literally crying that I had to add Serj. What has the damn world come to when some emo like Shaddick is above Tankian.

86 Matt Bellamy Matt Bellamy Matthew James "Matt" Bellamy is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and compose most famous for being the main vocalist in alternative rock band Muse.

How is Matt so far down?

His voice is unbelievably melodic and can go with whatever style Muse choose to work on. Not to mention his amazing falsetto, which he can perform perfectly.

And yes, this is about singing, but one cannot simply, in scenario like this, leave out Matt's amazing guitar and piano playing skills, which he can flawlessly use while singing.

This is m-m-m-m-m-m-m-madness. This is probably one of the most diverse singers in all of rock. He should be in at least the top 10. How did Jared Leto get above this genius. Listen to Supremacy to hear this man's diversity

Most unique voice in the world of rock and does it with amazing talent and for that he should be number one

He has almost the range of Freddie Mercury and I think Matt sings better. Should be at least top 3 in my opinion

95 Jeff Buckley Jeff Buckley Jeffrey Scott "Jeff" Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997) raised as Scott "Scottie" Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. more.

Criminally underrated. Robert Plant admired this man. He was signed as a heritage artist and entrusted to cover Dylan and Leonard Cohen. Could and would have changed the climate of rock if he hadn't passed away. Greatest singer of all time.

Jeff Buckley is so under rated and so under appreciated. His vocal technic, voice range, quality and the emotion he put into his songs make him qualified to be the #1 Rock singer of all time. If you disagree with me then you obviously don't know what good music is

Jeff Buckley is amazing. If you are ranking him on ability alone, he should be # 1

It's obvious that this guy is so far from 1st.
Jeff buckley was an angel, a shooting star that crossed our sky so very fast, litting up our lives a little bit
"Pure drop in an ocean of chaos" bono vox
"If I could do with my guitar what he did with his voice, would be a good thing" Jeff beck
Simply the best singer ever, alongside Glenn hughes and freddie mercury

96 Tom Delonge Tom Delonge Thomas Matthew "Tom" DeLonge, Jr., is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, and film producer. He was born in Poway, California on December 13, 1975 . When he was in high school at age 15, he got expelled for drinking at a basketball game . He also used to play the more.

He is better than what people say he is, a highly underestimated artist. AVA should be comparable to Led Zeppelin and The Beatles, great band, sorry if I am exaggerating. People only hate him because of his issues and because he is a previously pop punk artist. He isn't Justin Bieber or One Direction, most people don't even like him because he is cute and hot,even though he is appreciated in his looks a lot, but because his music is enjoyable and his personality. Attractive does not equal lack of talent, he can be both. I liked his music before I even saw him. If he was ugly and still as good, I would still listen to him, if he is good looking but had sucky music, I would not like him. - AnimeDrawer

Tom DeLonge back in the day used to have one of the most unique voices! But now his voice is different because it got a lot deeper.

97 Caleb Followill

How can this guy be so low? His voice sounds better live than on record.. Top 20 material.

Please vote for atif aslam

99 Otsuka Morrie Motoyuki

One of the idolized vocalists in Japan, has many tributes and major bands in Japan cover his songs - ronluna

100 Robin Zander

Zander has been the lead singer for Cheap Trick for over 35 years and is often referred to as "the man with a thousand voices. " Listen to the first Cheap Trick album (Cheap Trick) from 1976 and realize that this man has been sorely under represented. And who the H is Jared Leto? I don't know who put this list together, but Jebus, it certainly does NOT represent an informed view of the greatest rock vocalists of all time. Who are #'s 4 & 5?

105? Are you kidding me? Zander is the best rock singer who has ever drawn breath. Still operating on a level that nobody can even approach let alone reach. FACT.

THE rock vocalist of all time. There is no one else in this league.

Voice of the gods. Greatest rock singer, male or female or anything else for that matter!
