Greatest Rock Voices
The Contenders: Page 9
Jay Black had an enormous hit with Cara Mia when he was 25 years old. It had the highest notes ever written for a popular song. There are YouTube videos of him singing that same song 50 years later. And he gets every note right. A tremendously powerful and versatile voice.
People seem to be forgetting a lot of rock's early big voices on this list.
Listen to the oldies, Like the classic Live album, Live Bullet - does not get enough respect!
I went to see definitely leppard live and it blew my mind! He is awesome.
Are you kidding me? Tempest as a singer kicks the ass of 95% of the people on this list. Just listen to Europe's on the loose.
He should be ever bit as highly rated on this list as Jon Bon Jovi
Put this guy in a better band and he'd be in the top 10V 1 Comment
223?!?! What?!?! Billy deserves to be in the top 10 at least! - CristhianR

Matt shadow have a voice -. - Anyone could not do like him. He must be the greatest male vocalist/singer of all time. Try to hear DEAR GOD closely, and his voice too. What a sharp note and pitch. You're damn awesome matt!
He's voice is so darn unique and his range is just so incredible. Dang. To think that it had went under a knife and had one of his vocal blood vessels removed. I'M CRAZILY ADDICTED TO HIS SINGING!
man its crazy seeing how poorly people vote. m shadows is amazing and nothing less. - somepeoplesuckatvoting
Definitely worthy of the list a great range of vocals and stylesV 6 Comments
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!
I would consider Lou Gramm to be one of top 10 lead vocalists to have ever lived. Just my thoughts. and what makes Lou's sound so great is that he has a tenor voice, but he always sings right at the top of his range, which adds a very tough element to his singing.V 8 Comments
Why is this Rock God in the top 10!? Listening to his vocal range is just amazing! He will blow you away with his lyrics and feelings. And some people say his live performances are better than weddings...
His voice is completely filled with emotions and feeling which makes their song so much awesome, not only should he be one top ten he should top the list, MUSE JUST ROCKS!
All I can say that his voice is amazing, beautiful, and unique, he is also one of the best live singers ever, no lip-sync at all.
Muse is just amazing.Matt Bellamy' s voice is impressive his vocal range is unbelieveable especially in the song "Supremacy"V 2 Comments
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
How is he so far down this list?! Unbelievable, should be in the Top 10 at least. Best rock vocalist who sung with feeling and emotion and made me love rock music. Thank you ChesterV 37 Comments
The most glaring omission on this list is the former Styx lead singer. Unbelievable voice rivaling Steve Perry in his era.
Should be much higher! Most distinctive voice! His voice led Styx and has been in front on 8 top 10 hits
His bluesy voice will send shivers to your spine. Not only he is an outstanding guitar player, but he's also a very talented songwriter; any of his songs feels like a whole different story.
Love his voice, his amazing talent on guitar and how incredibly sexy he is.
Richie's solo album are both AMAZING, great singer with great voice and feelings in what he does, the one and only just as Jon Bon Jovi...
He is very underrated. He sings with a lot of emotion. He brings the music to life.V 4 Comments
Great live show, very powerful vocals. Something to remember, that's for certain!
