The Top Ten

1 Bruce Dickinson Bruce Dickinson Paul Bruce Dickinson, known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is most well known for being the lead singer in heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his solo career.

He's one of the coolest. Watch this - it's gonna make your day:
' Bruce Dickinson Hosting Headbangers Ball '

It was in 1988 and his clothing was a parody of the so called glam "metal". - Metal_Treasure

2 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine ...read more.

I think Mustaine is the coolest. He is opinionated and can be an ass. He is very confident and himself and makes a lot of media with his comments. He has a big ego and if you like that stuff like I do then he is the coolest. PLus he is by far the best guitar player of any metal singer. So he has a lot of coolness going for him

I don't know ... he's a great musician but I wouldn't call him 'cool' because he's very authoritarian. His dictatorship in Megadeth and his big Ego caused lots of conflicts and unwanted bandmembers changes. - Metal_Treasure

A kickass guitariat
A underrated vocalist
He's cooler than kerry king

He’s A Douche and Terrible at singing but his guitar playing is great - GreenDayFan21

Everybody knows that Mr. Golden Voice was a great singer.
But his personality was incredible, too - he's known for paying attention to every fan who has approached him. He talked to fans for hours after the shows. Dio was so talented and dedicated but so accessible, so cool.
He is the coolest metal singer and personality - his ethics was impeccable and he could be a role model for everyone. - Metal_Treasure

6 he must be the _1

10 Tobias Sammet Tobias Sammet Tobias Sammet is a German metal musician, best known as the vocalist and primary songwriter of the power metal band Edguy, as well as the founder, main singer and bassist of the metal opera Avantasia.

YouTube this
Tobias Sammet Village boy looking for girl - Metal_Treasure

He is absolutely cool. And great sense of humor.
Watch this, it's lots of fun: Tobias Sammet ��" Village boy looking for girl - Metal_Treasure

A guy who can write this is absolutely cool:

"I may like New York, Bavaria or Paris
But nothing compares to you, England
Cause England's got Steve Harris

England, I know
I may have explained it somewhere before
But I swear it wasn't my idea
To contrive that silly war
Okay, I've got to admit
This was, uhm, an improper try of a joke
But it rhymed and talking humour:
You've got to know I'm just anosser German bloke "

(Edguy - England, bonus track, 2014) - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Scott Ian Rosenfeld Scott Ian Rosenfeld Scott Ian is an American musician, best known as the rhythm guitarist, backing and additional lead vocalist, and the only remaining original founding member of the thrash metal band, Anthrax.
12 Matthew Barlow

A really cool guy.
He is one of the greatest metal singers but he left Iced Earth in 2003 because the September 11 terrorist attacks made him realize something. He wanted to contribute to the "real world" instead of living the illusion of a "rock star."

And Barlow became a police officer in the police department in Georgetown, Delaware.
WOW!
He returned to music in 2007. - Metal_Treasure

13 Jarkko Ahola Jarkko Ahola Jarkko Kalevi Ahola is a Finnish performing artist, composer and singer, best known as a metal singer. He is the vocalist, bass player and one of the three songwriters of the metal band Teräsbetoni. He also started a solo career as Ahola, a metal band.

One of the best metal singers the world today. He really deserves more fame. His high notes are amazing and he can sing pretty much anything. I've never heard a voice like this.

14 Kai Hansen Kai Hansen

Very cool guy - there's something very special in his personality which makes me smile but also respect him.
He has been the backbone of the German metal since the 80s now. He is the guy who has been invited by all leading German bands as a guest musician (looks like they needed his blessing).

He still sings live with his ex-colleagues from Helloween, esp. Michael Kiske;
he sang with Blind Guardian (studio and live) and Edguy;
he had side projects with members of Primal Fear (where his ex-singer Ralf Scheepers currently sings), with Thomas Stauch from Blind Guardian, etc.

He was an initiator of many metal 'family reunions' and so on.
He's the German Metal Godfather. - Metal_Treasure

Kai Hansen is just all around cool! He is talented and has an awesome personality
