Top Ten Best Rock Singers


The Contenders: Page 8

141 Jack White Jack White
142 John Kay

Sorry, the lead singer of Steppenwolf HAS to be in this list! Born to Be Wild? I mean, come on!

Just listen to anything by Steppenwolf (Born to Be Wild, Magic Carpet Ride, Hey Lawdy Mama), then tell me this guy doesn't belong at least in the top 50. Honestly, his is the first name I thought of when I saw this category.

143 Mitch Ryder
144 Rick Sanford

Original front man for rock group "Legs Diamond." Very underrated singer. He really should be in the top 3...or at least the top 10! At least in Axl Rose's place. Rick Sanford has been compared to Axl Rose and other 80's rock singers when in reality he has his own unique sound! In fact his career started 10 years before Axl Rose's. So it really sounds like Axl Rose is trying to sound like Rick Sanford! If people realized all this maybe Sanford would get the recognition he deserves...and start putting Rick somewhere at the top of the list or again at least wherever Axl Rose has been placed! No disrespect to Axl Rose because he is damn good...but so is Rick Sanford! (Rick Sanford gets my #1 vote! )

146 Burton Cummings

If you doubt his talent and don't believe he should be MUCH higher on this list, just listen to some Guess Who...These Eyes, Share The Land and American Woman. Start with those and explore some more!

Great voice! Edgy, strong, clear and pure. His vocals on The Guess Who hits are for the ages.

He is the greatest singer than anybody... Simple Plan, you guys always rock... Greatest band ever... Please please please please vote Perrie... His voice is really amazing...

152 Johnny Winter Johnny Winter
153 Dennis DeYoung

Steve Perry is good. But if he's mentioned Deyoung should be too.

154 Kaveh Afagh

The best Iranian rock singer

155 Jonathan Davis Jonathan Davis Jonathan Howsmon Davis, also known as JD and JDevil, is an American musician best known as the leading vocalist and frontman of the nu metal band Korn.

One of the most unique singers ever! No one is like Jonathan!

156 Josh Homme Josh Homme
157 Chris Stapleton

I think he's the best singer-songwriter I've ever heard. His amazing powerful voice comes straight from soul and when you listen to his songs, can feel every single note he touches. His live performances are as great as studio recordings and Really deserves a huge respect from humanity.

158 Kyo Kyo Kyo is a Japanese musician, poet and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the vocalist of the metal band Dir en grey. He has been with the band since its inception in 1997 and was formerly in La:Sadie's.
159 Aretha Franklin Aretha Franklin Aretha Louise Franklin (born March 25, 1942) is an American singer–songwriter and musician. Franklin began her career singing gospel at her father, minister C. L.

Best singer ever... I would usually choose Robert plant or Freddie mercury if I was just taking hard rock into consideration. But Aretha also has rocking' songs and it is very easy to call her a rock singer.
