He deserves to be in the top 10. Only listen to Megalomania or Survival.

49 Jared Leto Jared Leto

He is legendary. Truly amazing. There is not that many singers that when they sing you feel it in your soul. Its like a burst of energy that runs through your body. People that doesn't feel that... I don't have anything to say to them.

Soulful singer, fantastic voice, charisma. Watch him on the 2013 I Heart Radio Award show when he sang "Stay".

He is the benchmark of rock singing and truly inspirational, Enthusiastic, Perfect guy. Proud to be an Echelon. <3 #echelon.

50 Eddie Vedder Eddie Vedder Eddie Vedder is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as a member of the rock band Pearl Jam, with whom he performs lead vocals and is one of three guitarists.

I'm laughing my ass off...Eddie deserves to be in the top 10 you morons. No one sings with more emotion than the god damn lead singer of Pearl Jam

I truly think that because Vedder is still alive and Pearl Jam has taken more of a Grateful Dead approach (concerts as opposed to singles), that he remains under-appreciated. For me...definitely top 10.

My ela teacher loves this guy, with Pearl Jam, although because I'm in the 7th grade I'm the onay student know who he is

51 Myles Kennedy Myles Kennedy Myles Richard Kennedy is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Alter Bridge, and as the lead vocalist in Slash's current band: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.

4 octaves and 8 semitones of vocal range. Can effortlessly hold notes (at various pitches) for 20 seconds or more. Was picked over the likes of Chris Cornell, M. Shadows, and Ozzy Osbourne to be the front-man for Slash's tour and follow-up solo records. Was asked asked personally by the members of Led Zeppelin to fill in for Robert Plant for a tour. Filled in for Axl Rose at the Guns 'n' Roses Hall of Fame induction. Is currently in an incredibly epic band (Alter Bridge) with the former members of Creed. Has collaborated with singing instructors that have worked with the likes of Axl Rose and Ozzy Osbourne.
Why is this guy not a world sensation?

This man on no 63? well voting here is useless.

One of the best.
Just listen to the last Alter Bridge album and Slash's too.

52 Thom Yorke Thom Yorke Thomas Edward "Thom" Yorke is an English musician best known as the singer and principal songwriter of the alternative rock band Radiohead.

Radiohead singer: beautiful voice in one of the best bands of all time.

I'd like to see them falsetto like Thom Yorke. Wait, they can't.

Just look at him. He knows he is a legend lolololol...

cause he really is one. Perhaps the best on the history of human kind.

53 Mick Jagger Mick Jagger Sir Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

This TOP 10 list is not needed. The number 1 is is proven over time since long time ago. It should be called TOP 2-10 Greatest Male Rock Singers of All Time after Mick

Mick jagger should be number one and I'm gonna tell why: He is like all vocalists dad because the one that didn't imitated his style imatated someone imitated him. - Juniorxtrm

David Bowie needs to be higher on the list. He was a great singer and one of the most influential musicians that ever lived. He's a legend. So sad we lost him on 1/10/16. I love David Bowie. He really was amazing, inside and out.

How is he not on here! In the words of Sheldon Cooper, I weep for humanity. Although I do approve of Freddie

55 Bono Bono Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".

Man, are you kidding he # 36, he should be at the least at the top 5.He is such a great versatile singer. He is the best singer in the world. Has anyone not heard his greatest songs like sunday bloody sunday etc, you are a total fool if you don't agree with me.

He had the greatest voice and he is the best live act his music is so magical. I'm shocked that he is not on top 5.

Bono isn't the greatest singer of all time, but he is very talented. He puts a lot of heart into is songs. Definitely deserves top 10.

Mesmerizing to watch Bono own the audience.

Even if you don't like Coldplay, you can still agree that Chris has a great voice with a huge range. He's fantastic.

Name one person (other than Matthew Bellamy) that can falsetto like him.

The man has a voice made for belting out sweet-sounding melodies.
