The Top Ten

1 Parallels - As I Lay Dying Parallels - As I Lay Dying
2 This Darkened Heart - All That Remains This Darkened Heart - All That Remains
3 The Air That I Breathe - All That Remains The Air That I Breathe - All That Remains
4 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
5 Painkiller - Judas Priest Painkiller - Judas Priest

This is very difficult start to finish - very fast and high pitched singing, shrieks, screams, and especially his perfect sustain of about 18-19 seconds at the end. - Metal_Treasure

6 This Calling - All that Remains This Calling - All that Remains
7 Given Up - Linkin Park Given Up - Linkin Park

Try doing the 17 second scream in the middle - spiderskull98

8 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

Difficult because it requires high degree of versatility - there are frequent and sudden switches/transitions, and it needs both smooth angelic soft voice and powerful demonic harsh voice. The emotion is also difficult to replicate. Screams are so melodic.
The song structure is progressive - it has several parts that are not repeated (it doesn't even have a chorus). Great job Hansi Kürsch! - Metal_Treasure

9 Crawling - Linkin Park Crawling - Linkin Park
10 Abigail - King Diamond Abigail - King Diamond

This dude has the craziest falsetto I've ever heard and a vocal range of 4+ octaves. - Metal_Treasure

The Newcomers

? I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston
? Child in Time - Deep Purple Child in Time - Deep Purple

It's over 10 minutes long with tempo changes and Ian Gillan screams for about 2 minutes at the end (after 8:00). These are golden screams. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Chop Suey! - System of a Down Chop Suey! - System of a Down
12 Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween

The song is about 14 minutes long with difficult vocal lines but the most impressive thing is the series of perfect sustains after 12:30, one of them is about 18 seconds long. Pure eargasm. Great job Michael Kiske! - Metal_Treasure

13 BYOB - System of a Down BYOB - System of a Down
14 Twist - Korn Twist - Korn

Why is this so low? This is impossible to sing! - NikBrusk

15 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

14 minutes of epic singing (I prefer the 2012 version). Hansi Kürsch left his throat on these complex and overlapping vocal harmonies - you hear a choir but there's no choir, he's the only singer. The song is very complex with symphonic arrangements and many tempo changes but it's mostly fast and energetic. - Metal_Treasure

16 Face The Day - From Ashes To New
17 Hounds - Savatage Hounds - Savatage
18 One Step Closer - Linkin Park One Step Closer - Linkin Park
19 Highlander - Lost Horizon Highlander - Lost Horizon

Daniel Heiman has some mad vocal skills and if you are really interested in difficult singing material, I would recommend to try this song (it's over 12 min long, progressive power metal). - Metal_Treasure

20 The March of the Black Queen - Queen The March of the Black Queen - Queen
