221 Joe Strummer Joe Strummer John Graham Mellor, known by his stage name Joe Strummer, was a British musician, singer, actor and songwriter who was the co-founder, lyricist, rhythm guitarist and lead vocalist of the Clash.
222 Terry Kath Terry Kath Terry Alan Kath was an American musician and songwriter, best known as the original guitarist, one of the lead singers and founding members of the rock band Chicago.

How come Terry Kath from Chicago gets zero recognition as a vocalist and guitar playing

Because the average age of TTT voters is 12-15, and they have never heard of him, or anything at all that happened before the year 2000.

223 Gordon Downie

Have you heard this guy? No. You know why because he's Canadian. I am American and I heard this guy from a friend that told me to check out a band called the tragically hip. This band is so famous in Canada. And I'm honestly going to say that good downie has the best vocals on the planet. And this band the tragically hip makes me think bigger it opens my eyes to way better music. Check out the tragically hip. They are awesome.

224 Mark Knopfler Mark Knopfler Mark Freuder Knopfler is a British singer, songwriter, guitarist, record producer and film score composer.
225 Chuck Schuldiner Chuck Schuldiner Charles Michael "Chuck" Schuldiner was an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist, best known as the founder and vocalist, guitarist and bassist of the American heavy metal band Death. He is considered the most influential figure in Death Metal, with some publications referring to Chuck as the "Godfather more.
226 Howard Jones Howard Jones Howard Jones is an American metalcore vocalist, best known as vocalist of the bands Killswitch Engage and Blood Has Been Shed, and as the current vocalist of Light the Torch, formerly known as Devil You Know.


Howard Jones was the best frontman for Killswitch Engage. He has a REDONKULOUS voice. Besides screaming, he has a fantastic soulful voice. Epic singer.

227 Anthony Kiedis Anthony Kiedis Anthony Kiedis is an American singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers, which he has fronted since its inception in 1983.

This is complete crap. Has anyone on this website even listened to Soul to Squeeze, Give It Away, Snow, Brendan's Death Song, or Otherside?! All of you are crazy. Anthony should be AT LEAST number five. All of this is my opinion of course.

Dude at least top 15, listen to Breaking The Girl. I hate when people say Anthony has a terrible voice. He never used auto tune or any vocal enhancement and his tracks are totally underrated. Not to mention that the Chili Peppers are arguably the best live band of all time.

What a unique an amazing voice! I can't believe he is on number 26! He must be in the top 15
He must be up there! He simply rocks! He has the voice of an angel!

He should be in top 10 not on 75

228 Jared Leto Jared Leto

Not only is he easy on the eyes, but he is an amazing singer too. His voice has great range and takes every listener on a journey. From screams, to soul and depth, Jared's voice is undeniably awesome.

Most comments on this website are just focusing on the bands overall popularity and success and not focusing on the talent of just the singer alone and for that reason I find it implausible how this man isn't in the top 5 people take just 30 minutes out of your day and listen to city of angles, kings queens and do or die and really listen he is class and beats the pants of most of them on here

His voice is fantastic his range is crazy boy can he scream, but when he hits a high note like alibi you can feel it "I fell apart" lyrics but then you can listen to the softer side of stay, bad romance, is this a dream, alibi you can feel the songs

In brief and simple words- the only guy who has better vocals than him is Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. He should be at no. 2. He can go high and then drop low so quickly whenever needed.

229 Sebastian Bach Sebastian Bach Sebastian Philip Bierk, known professionally as Sebastian Bach, is a Canadian heavy metal singer who achieved mainstream success as frontman of Skid Row from 1987-96. Since his departure from Skid Row, he has had many television roles, acted in Broadway plays, and leads a solo career.

Not sure how this happened. Are you kidding this guy should have been # 1. By far the best male rock vocalist in the universe. His sharp high vocals and screams go unmatched.

Such controlled screaming - knew how to use to use his voice and could reach the top notes so well.

Like him or not this guy has the best pipes I've ever heard, no contest.

Crazy at 105? 18 and life anyone?

230 Tim McIlrath Tim McIlrath Timothy James "Tim" McIlrath is an American punk rock musician. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist, songwriter and co-founder of the American punk rock band Rise Against.

One of the greatest voices I have ever heard in my life. He might not have an outstanding vocal range or something like that, but the emotions he puts into his singing and his absolutely unique vocal style makes him one of the greatest singers I know.

the best vocalist in the world, but in 48? this is impossible he must be at least in top 3.. His unique voice, he awesome technique to write songs, he best the best in the world

He is easily top 5 if not #1. His unique voice and inspiring music alone are the best I've ever heard. I've listened to plenty of bands. Best artist and singer in the world if you ask me.

He has a beautifully deep and sonorous voice!

232 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.

He is a great vocalist with lots of vocal range, he can sing extremely aggressive in slipknot notable song (disasterpiece) or a beautiful musical ballad like in stonesour notable song : hesitate

Corey sings our hates He can sing soft or hard He has got different voice

Corey Taylor has second highest vocal range of any singer in popular music. He can reach 5 octaves and 5 and half notes. He can sing in flawless styles. He sings with proper grit and rasp. He screams very brutally and the brutal the better.

Corey is amazing.. He should be in top 20 in my opinion. - franksheh

233 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.

Dave Grohl should be in the top 10. He has a great voice and he leads a great band. His lyrics often have a positive meaning (life is short, seize every moment, never give in). Dave is my all time favorite.

280?!?! He definitely deserves top 100! He's got an amazing voice that I thought was better than Cobain but not as good as Vedder. Everlong, Best of You, and Walk are great examples of his vocal talent.

He's a lot better choice than frankly most of the people ahead of him. At least he does really rock.

Not exactly top 10 material, but 97? Really?

234 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.

He's so amazing! I love that he's not afraid to joke around and be himself on stage, and it's original that way. He's also very theatrical, and puts emphasis on things, and he's just got the best voice I've ever heard! I also range from Led Zeppelin, My Chemical Romance, Blink-182, so I've heard many voices because I like dozens of bands, but this one stood out to me.

Heck, this guy pulled off a flawless Bohemian Rhapsody. His voice is ridiculous and he always does an amazing job, throwing in risky, difficult notes in his live performances and killing it every time. Aside from his incredible voice, Brendon Urie is a real character and it's hard not to love him!

That range though!

Honestly! Brendon Urie has the best pipes out of all these people! His range from high to low is simply outstanding!

Unbelievable Range
