The Top Ten
He's a very good singer, but he can't possibly be better than Freddie...or Joe Elliott - def_leppard_fan
Amazing vocal range. - Userguy44
Mr. Rose is hands down the best rock Singer/ vocalist to ever grace this planet. No one even comes close to his vocal range!
We Love Axl and Guns n Roses.V 6 Comments
The best voice I've ever heard in my life.
Beautiful voice beautiful face. Possibly one of the best singers ever to grace the earth! Pure genius, just watch Queen's set at Live Aid for proof.
Come on put him at one now his voice the best they come in in fact he has like 6 different voices so he should be one-END OF STORY
Look up Queen... That's all I have to sayV 7 Comments
James Hetfield is overrated, as all of metallica. Robert Plant may not be a extremely hard rock vocalist, but he influenced it like no other. - ultrablastic123
He was the original hard rock vocalist. He created the style of singing
Greatest hard rock singer that ever lived? ROBERT ANTHONY PLANT. Nobody even close.
Awesome Man! Awesome Voice! Led Zeppelin Rocks - abdullahrazzaq22V 1 Comment
CAN NOT BELIEVE HE IS NOT 1ST METALLICA IS SO AWESOME
Hands down best frontman
Metallica is 1st
Metallica is awesome
Don't know much about vocals, but he isn't hard rock. - zxmV 8 Comments
James Hetfield really? A good singer, a nice voice?
I LOVE Steve Perry! Journey is my favorite band of ALL time!
An awesome voice. Steve Perry is my favorite and he has to be the number 1!
Should be in top 3. 6th, you've got to be kidding me. Whoever voted for Steven Tyler to be in 6th needs to pull their heads out of their asses, take in the air and reach the logical conclusion that Steven Tyler is only worthy of at least top 3, if not number 1.
Steven is one of the greatest singers in the history of the genre. He certainly deserves this spot, but Robert Plant certainly deserves second and Freddie Mercury deserves first.
Aerosmith lead singer. Enough said.
The demon of screamin he's the best
This guys voice is incredible. - Userguy44
Amazing range, rich voice, can make screams that would send other people to the hospital, just listen to the In Rock album
He has such vocal quality and such an operatic style! Listen to Child in Time!
The best singer for me! The colour of his voice-quite unusual and charismatic. For ever only Ian Gillan!V 2 Comments
Nah. Bon is much better. - Userguy44
Brian and axl. Who else is there
AC/DC and his voice is awesome
Should be higher. has powerful voice. in my opinion, better than Bon Scott. - zxm
I like his more voice more than Brian. - Userguy44
You all a crazy that is rock at its best none better
Only 18th place this is the best voice there is.
He was only 30 years do you think if 50 years... ?V 3 Comments
What a Voice & Charisma! Top 3 material along with Robert Plant & Freddie Mercury... - Nirmal1991USA
The Best vocalist of All-time along with Richie Sambora!
Should be number! Have you heard Axl Rose, he sounds like a retarded cat with a nasal disorder getting dissolved in acid!
Hard Rock Vacal's means Jon Bon Jovi!V 1 Comment
I'm listening to rainbow in the dark at this very moment!
Dio should be far beyond 7. Like #1
Yes I agree. #1!
Not enough peeps have really listened to his
Voice like on the 1st 3 Rainbow albums.
Or when he was w Black Sabbath & sang "heaven &hell" etc.
What is there to love about M. Shadows? Oh right, EVERYTHING! His voice being at the top of the list! He deserves his beautiful family- his wife and sons! :')
He is the best of the modern age and will remain untouchable for generations to come
The worlds greatest vocalist
One of the bests... Deserves the top 5... - sam117V 1 Comment
He is at 20 'cause he is heavy metal not hard rock
I agree with both of you
What Bruce Dickinson at 20. he should be in top 10.
Bos... Dance of the death... M/..V 1 Comment
Layne is my love
Alice in Chains is much better than Nirvana (In my opinion). Therefor, Layne should be ahead of Kurt by at least one position.
This list is trash. Kurt Cobain is nothing compared to Layne - Sabbath
This list is wrong layne staley is #1V 2 Comments
Chester Bennington... Greatest singer ever! Deserves to be in at least the top 5.
The Best vocalist, and deserves a good place for sure
Every single songs tells who Chester is.
No bull! Just see his live performances and you will know.
Try to take the best of him you go away!
His vocal chords are Amazing to hear in the 80's my Favorite Def Leppard song's Photograph, Rocket, Rock of Ages, pour some sugar on me, Love Bites.
He should be in the top 10. - def_leppard_fan
Actually the top 5. - def_leppard_fan
An incredible vocal range and could reach fairly high notes that many contemporary singers couldn't.
Underrated. - Userguy44
His vocals are addicting. How is he not in the top 5?
Amazing range, and great control. Plus he's actually a hard rock vocalist unlike half of these jokers. - wyattn97
Huge vocal range, plus helped get Eddie Vedder started, should be in the top 10
Very underrated should be at top 5 - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345
Most underrated Male Rock Vocalist
What also make's him very cool is that he uses a Chainsaw as a instrument such a badass - christangrant
Lead singer of Jackyl sounds a lot like Brian Johnson - christangrant
Take this hack off the list how
Paul Stanley is and always will be the epitome of what a hard rock vocalist should be! Sure KISS is not the "heaviest" band, but Paul Stanley has a voice like none other! He can stun, amaze, mesmerize and paralyze you with his totally awesome voice! He can change his voice easily from any genre of rock to the next! His onstage presence and banter along with the look all make him the #1 candidate for this! Have you heard him on the album Revenge?! Carnival of Souls? Wow! Is all I have to say!
Paul Stanley's voice has stayed remarkably fresh after all these years!
He's a fantastic pure vocalist and can hit a high note with total and
complete ease. His voice strangely gets better with age!
i can't even name anyone else whose ever been close to the way this man sings!
Just the greatest rock singer, he can go from hi to low just as easy as piece of cake. He's aroud 60 but his voice get better with age. Listen "Forever" and you see what I'm talking about.
I been fan since 80. My Aunt Donna Mineer played Paul at Halloween and I played Gene. Sister Peter Chris and Brother Ace. I am 50 Yrs Old now. My favorite singing voice - EVER - is Paul Stanley Hah... Ever!
His music with Slipknot are Pretty good and my favorite album would have to be The 5 gray Chapter.
Not Hard Rock - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345
One of the best artists I've ever come across in my life!
Blows me away especially in stone sourV 1 Comment
This one man personified what rock nroll is all about with his work in alterbridge... Even led zepplin and slash wanted to work with him!
Kurt Cobain was so unique. One of few vocalists who you could actually hear the pain and emotion in his voice. An incredible talent who lyrics you could relate to instantly.
He doesn't sing hard rock! - Metal_Treasure
Not only was he perfect live, his voice may not be perfect but is pure emotion. I still get chills listening to where did you sleep last night.
The Real Trully Madly Deeply One
John Vesely is the best singer in this championship, defeating M. Shadows and gerard way and adam young, you are the best of all, let's grab the spirit and all are for the future of you and Candice Vesely
I can say the he's a great singer, because of his voice on his own songs!
Does he sing hard rock? All the songs I heard of his are alternative rock. - zxm
From underrated visual kei bands D'ERLANGER and DIE IN CRIES, industrial rock band BUG - ronluna
Not hard rock - HEAVYMETALTHUNDER12345
As great as axl in my opinion he should be further up this list
Geoff Tate 42? Really? Has to be in the top 5 2nd to Freddie Merc, Tate, Dio, Rob halford, Bruce Dickinson. Those last three a toss up. Up really
Metallica is awesome but James Hetfield is not that great of a singer. Geoff Tate is the second best rock singer of all time (behind Freddie Mercury).
...nor he sings hard rock - Undistinguished
It's like he's got the voice of the devil and an angel at the same time. Scratchy, rough ans brutal. But then again it's soft and calm. His voice is so unique. And don't forget the screams!
Cannot believe he is not mentioned
Matt is certainly higher than 31! He in my mind is one of the greatest guitaristsinger ever he has nasty riffs great voice insane range and insane growls and screams he is like no other
Matt is not even in the list!
That's sick.. Get him in top 10 at least! He is a great vocalist.. He can scream growl and play some insane riffs at the same time!
Really all the way back here
He's one of my all time favourite vocalists and you have the shame to put him at #43!
Vocal range and control are stunning.
Ballz in ya tea!
The lead singer of one of the best hard rock bands ever Bad Company.
