82 Brendon Urie Brendon Urie Brendon Boyd Urie, more commonly known as Brendon Urie, was born April 12, 1987, in St. George, Utah. He is an American singer, songwriter, musician and multi-instrumentalist. He is best own as the lead singer of the American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco. He is the only original remaining member. more.

This list is mostly full of older singers. The reason why people like Brendon Urie are this low is because no one will look past legends like Freddie Mercury. I know Freddie was amazing (as I am also a fan of Queen), but some of the newer artists are just as amazing. Brendon has an incredible voice, and I think more people should realize that.

Honestly the only reason he is so low is because all of the people about him are older singers from legendary bands. - booklover24

Ben was badass! He was the voice of the Cars...
Something a lot of folks don't realize. Loved his voice!

I just love him. He was a great singer, a great guitarist, and a complete angel, inside and out. A great musician and a great person. It makes me sad that he died in 2000 from pancreatic cancer. R.I.P. sweet Ben. You will be missed by many.

Benjamin was the total package: talented, humble, sexy, funny. #BenjaminOrr #neverenough
