Greatest Rock Voices

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Chester Bennington Chester Bennington Chester Charles Bennington is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor. He is best known for being the lead singer of Linkin Park. He also has a few side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise .

Chester Bennington is the best rock singer of all time. He can scream so well that people can understand what he's saying, and he can also put so much emotion into his voice that you want to either start crying or start a riot. This man is one of the few people I truly admire, and I pray to whatever deity is out there that he has a long, rich, happy life.

For his work, listen to Linkin Park. He's the higher pitched voice.

Chester is the greatest voice ever. Axl sucks, Axl is should be off the list. Chester is number 1, he is screams the "17 SECONDS! ". Yes, this is real,17 SECONDS FROM THE Linkin Park SONG "GIVEN UP"!

Love you Chazz... Chester Bennington FOREVER! Linkin Park rules!

He is the best. No one comes close to Chester because he is so versatile and because he can scream and sing and go back and forth with ease. The best

Who the hell had made this list... so far that person has no idea who Chester is! he is simply the best and he must have been in top 5! ridiculous list

This man's voice is magical. He makes every song his own. His range is phenomenal. The emotion can bring you to tears or make you cheer along. Definitely even better live, 30 Seconds to Mars is a must see to experience this voice.

Can't believe that. Jared number 23? O Gosh. Echelon, we need help. Bring Jared to no. One

Jared at 42? You don't know what jared's scream is.. The man can sing! He has the ultimate rock voice!

I love him... But... were is CHRIS MARTIN?

83 Trevor McNevan

Trevor's my favorite singer, ever! He is great in Rock and Rap! His vocal ability is simply amazing and beyond compare! He deserves to be in 1st, that I have no doubt! Thousand Foot Krutch is the best Christian Rock band and its vocalist is the best too! - HighRain

His voice is the best!

TFK is my 2nd favorite band, but Trevor's voice is probably the best. - LarkwingFlight

84 Dee Snider Dee Snider
85 Dave Grohl Dave Grohl David Eric "Dave" Grohl is an American rock musician, multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer. He is best known as the drummer for the grunge band Nirvana and the vocalist/guitarist for the alternative rock band Foo Fighters.

Rock legend! Should be way higher up the list! Was the 1991-1994 drummer of nirvana (Kurt Cobain's band) and he wrote the B-side song on the heart shaped box single called 'Marigold', then after the death of kurt cobain in 1994, he formed the legendary band 'Foo fighters' with ex nirvana tour guitarist pat smear, taylor hawkins, chris shiftlett and nate mendell! He's also worked with acts such as motorhead's Lemmy and is married to the MTV manager, and has 2 daughters to her. Legend, love ya dave I'm a 12 year old who wrote this by the way!

Lyrically he's a genius but his voice is legendary. Dave, accompanied by the excellent sound of the Foo Fighters, makes for musical bliss

Dave Grohl deserves to be at a much higher rank. 83?! His voice is amazing, and clearly beats some of the higher rankers.

I just discovered Grohl after obsorbing 40 years of rock and roll. I love this guy becuase he is genuin and a true performer.

86 Chris Shinn
87 Grace Slick Grace Slick
88 George Harrison George Harrison George Harrison was an English guitarist, singer, songwriter, and music and film producer who achieved international fame as the lead guitarist of the Beatles.

The Best Beatle by far

89 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and humanitarian. He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political more.

Listen to songs like Streets Of Fire. A rock voice with so much control. Amazing

The Boss
(nothing more to say)

Wow, 93rd place? Seriously!?! listen to "Born In The U.S.A" "Cover Me" "Adam Raised A Cain" "Jackson Cage" "Two Hearts". How could this possibly be that Bruce is not number 1?!?!

90 Gene Simmons Gene Simmons Chaim Witz, known professionally by his stage name Gene Simmons, is an Israeli-American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, actor and television personality.

Come on guys, really?! Some of the names in this list really cannot hold a candle to what Gene Simmons can put out vocally. Now granted, due to the money making machine that kiss is, there has been a slight tarnish added to his persona, but this should not reflect on his talent as a vocalist.

gene simmons is as good as any of the others

91 YVE (Yvonne Muentener)

This sweet lady deserves to be on top of this list. She can scream the hell out of you.

When I hear the word power-woman I think on sugamice. She's so beautiful and fascinating.

92 Andy Biersack Andy Biersack

He has an amazing voice. Really. Trust me, look it up.
Look... it... up...
Specifically listen to his voice in "Ribcage" or "Lost it all"

93 Lou Gramm Lou Gramm Lou Gramm is an American rock vocalist, and songwriter, best known for being the original lead singer for the British-American rock band Foreigner.

Lou Gramm's amazing voice made Foreigner. Who else can sing those high notes on Jukebox Hero? He was able to scream, but have a consistant high note underneath that, providing that electrifying, powerful rock sound, but in an unmatched melodic way. That's why no one, including Foreigners's new singer, can sing his songs in the same key and octave, the man's range was simply too incredible. Easily right up there with Plant and Daltrey in my book.

#65 Really? This man has the finest voice in rock history, edging even Steve Perry. His range and voice is egual to Perry's with an added abrasive coating. He has more soul and feeling in his pipes. You feel that he is actually living the story of the pain/joy that he is singing about. Health has not been kind to his voice but when comparing his prime to anyone else, he wins hands down.

Pound for pound the most electric exciting voice I've heard. Incredible power, range, and emotion with a voice as clear as a bell and cuts like a sword. Absolutely thrilling. Lou and Steve Perry would be right there at the top!

Best vocalist ever
