Greatest Male Rock Singers of All Timensen74
The Contenders: Page 2
Please! Cobain, Rose, Halford, Tyler, Roth, Dio, Perry? Rodgers was and is outstanding, with a voice that has lasted beyond tastes, trends and "sounds" of a particular decade. I wont argue that I would possibly rank Mercury as higher but certainly not the others. Rodgers is superb and Daltrey should only be a number or so below him in this list. I think some of the voters haven't heard any music pre 80s-90's music
He has the best voice in blues rock. He can sing sweet melody too just listen to "Seagull" which is based entirely on his vocals. But post Bad Company he made some weird collabrations and which cost him his listenable songs Unfortunately he never came back except for a brief time fronting Queen. That too was not a particularly good choice since he was rather unfairly put down by Mercury fans despite doing a great job
He was awesome 40 years ago and can still hold a note at full volume.
40 years of an awesome voice, gets my vote.
For my money Paul Rodgers is THE rock voice and has been for 40 years... Powerful, soulful voice, fantastic stage presence and great fan rapport...
I don't think 90% of the others on here come close...
Great Voice... Powerful voloumptious clear effortless... One of the best singers
Easily one of the rawest and best rock singers EVER! Deserves to be AT Least in the top 10
One of the greatest singers ever. So much emotion, combined with an underrated vocal range and an excellent feel for the song. Just listen to "Love, Reign O'er Me" or "Listening to You/See Me, Feel Me" and you'll be convinced.
Top 3 vocalist and prototype for all 70's rock god frontmen. Best EVER in my eyes.
How is he so low? Listen to Won't Get Fooled Again, Substitute, Love Reign O'er Me, My Genetation, Getting in Tune, etc.V 1 Comment
Just, hands down, one of the most epic singers of all time. Fast or slow, Burnley's talent will always show!
How could every one forget him he is an awesome singer he should be at least in top 20s
Adam gontier got me into rock. 3dg and saint asonia are great and animal I have become is one of my favorites
The greatest and most honest voice in rock music.
Oh come on, John is #1.
Quick, add up the total sales of all the other singers in the top 30.
John Lennon has outsold all the 28 other names put together.
He's a songwriter, not a musician. His bass playing is rudimentary at best and his singing voice can be put to shame by a talented 12-year old. He's a legend, but not because of his voice.
Epic voice of Pink Floyd. Legendary!
Um. Duh. Born to run, born in the usa, Santa Claus is comin to town, blinded by the light, thunder road, lucky town, etc. This guy should be #1!
I'm very surprised that he's not on this list, that guy sure has some pipes!
How is he this far down he's by far voice wise top 15 at least
Another Day. 'enough said
Kurt Cobain better than Layne Staley? John Lennon better than Layne Staley? I like both of those guys as songwriters but Staley's vocals blow both of them out the water! Just listen to "Man in the Box, " "Love Hate Love, " "Would? , " "Rooster, " "I Stay Away, " "We Die Young, " "Bleed the Freak, " "Frogs, " etc
Due to his untimely death, he will forever go down as the most underrated voice in rock... There are a lot of vocalists in front of him simply because their band was more successful. Bad measurement
Top 10 at least.
Greatest vocalist of all time.V 4 Comments
No body belts out a scream from the nether regions better than JIM MORRISON! True passion and a give all or nothing from his deepest core! No pretenses here. Enigmatic, charismatic, frightening and beautiful! All in the same, melt me like butter, deep, haunting voice that is like NO OTHER!
The End, Spanish Caravan, Strange Days. Just some of the songs they Jim Morrison's vocal talent shines through. Although, not technically brilliant, his voice ecoes through the emotional spectrum and haunts you. His natural baritone perfect for the music of The Doors. Also, his lyrics are so profound and meaningful, that resonate with you. A member of one of the greatest bands ever.
He is the one that paved the road for most of the other vocalists on here
Jim Morrison should DEFINEATLY be #1.V 4 Comments
