The Contenders: Page 6

101 Maynard James Keenan Maynard James Keenan Maynard James Keenan, often referred to by his initials MJK, is an American musician, record producer, winemaker, and actor, best known as the vocalist for Grammy Award-winning progressive metal band Tool.

3 bands and all of them are amazing. Coincidence? I think not.

He should have been number one. no. higher than number one. SUCK AND SUCK! ! !

You're kidding me, one of the greatest singers in rock, ever. Amazing voice and vocal range.

102 Corey Taylor Corey Taylor Corey Todd Taylor was born in December 8, 1973. He is an American musician, author, and actor best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the Nu-metal band Slipknot and hard rock/alternative metal band Stone Sour.

Corey should easily be in the top 5! Nobody can do what he can. Going from his war cry that sends shivers down your spine, to singing a beautiful ballad that will make you cry. His octave range is out of this world. Who ever made this list was high off their ass!

Corey is absolutely one of the best voices in the industry. From his early days to now he's genius!

Come on, wats wrong with humanity!

103 Dave Grohl Dave Grohl David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer and film director. He is best known as the former drummer of the hugely popular 90s grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters. He has sat behind the more.


It's sad that Dave Grohl is this low on the list.

The Man is so awrsome

Best singer I've heard! Just like him! New Album (Saint Ceceila EP) is too good...

104 Vince Neil Vince Neil Vincent Neil Wharton is an American vocalist and musician, best known as the lead vocalist of heavy metal band Mötley Crüe.

Great voice! One of the best in my opinion.

Why so far back? He was pretty good

105 Russel Allen

Hello?! Russel Allen from Symphony X...? HELL YEAH! M/

Of all those listed here: REALLY?! How can Michael not be at the top? At least 3 or 4? Really? Do you people even LISTEN to music anymore? Wow! So unfair!

Fantastic voice, great performer... The best!

Great voice, fantastic performer... The best!

I agree, Hutchence serves to be at the top.

107 David Byron David Byron David Garrick, better known by his stage name David Byron, was a British singer and songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist with the rock band Uriah Heep in the early 1970s.

The original Uriah Heep vocalist - no one comes close, except maybe Freddie Mercury, but that's it!

109 Michael Been

111 Luther Vandross Luther Vandross
112 Brandon Flowers Brandon Flowers

There are very few voices that I can listen to for long periods of time before I get sick of them. Brandon Flowers possesses a voice that I have never experienced anything like and I have yet to get tired of. It's a seriously pleasant sound. His voice has this ability to be gentle on the ears and yet still edgy. It's so wonderful.

Brandon Flowers has such a unique voice, and I really like it. The Killers are on their way to being indie rock legends, and Brandon's lovely voice is taking them there.

113 Syd Barrett Syd Barrett Roger Keith Barrett was an English musician, composer, singer, songwriter, and painter. Best known as a founder member of the band Pink Floyd, Barrett was the lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter in its early years and is credited with naming the band.
