He should be number one. Stunning range and can make any song sound good.

Ahead of Seger and Fogerty. Good Lord.

63 Ronnie Van Zant Ronnie Van Zant Ronald Wayne "Ronnie" Van Zant was an American lead vocalist, primary lyricist, and a founding member of the Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd.
64 Peter Noone
65 Adam Lambert Adam Lambert Adam Mitchel Lambert is an American singer, songwriter and stage actor. Since 2009, he has sold over 2.5 million albums and 5 million singles worldwide.

The best male voice in music today. Superb performer. Won't compare him to anyone on the list. He is unique and truly special. His range, power, and performance are truly remarkable. I have seen many of the singers on the list including Adam Lambert and Adam Lambert is the best live performance I have ever seen.

Adam truly is the Freddie Mercury of this generation, proven by the fact that Queen chose him to fill in for Freddie when they won the world icon award.

Adam Lambert not only can outbelt the best of these rockers, including even Freddie Mercury, he moves and looks the part as well. On stage he is riveting and electrifying, while seeming to be singing to just me, he connects so completely. A vocal powerhouse with the richest, most beautiful tone to excite and exhilirate, Adam also croons ballads to melt the most hardened of hearts and moves the most jaded to tears. Check his performances with Queen or covering Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Bono, all the greats on YT to see and hear for yourself.

Adam needs to be higher. he's amazing!

His voice is perfect, it's raspy and sexy

Way too far down on the list. Should be a lot closer to the top.

Just wonderful voice. His voice screams out "hot love" like nobody else.

Klaus should be in top 10 if not top 5. So should
Ronnie James Dio & Jon Anderson

66?! That's a joke this guy is a top 10 talent by far! Listen to him live throughout his career. He's always on

Just listen to his Sirius Radio session for queen of the dammed. His voice will give you the chills.

Dude needs a way better spot than this guy's come on..

There's no reason Jonathan Davis should be this low... He changed the game for heavy music forever with his distinct style. Nobody can sing like JD.

73 David Johansen
74 The Rev The Rev James Owen Sullivan (February 9th, 1981 - December 28th 2009), better known by his stage name "The Rev" (Short for "The Reverend Tholomew Plague") was an American musician, singer and songwriter, best known as the former drummer, backing vocalist and co-founder of the American heavy metal band Avenged more.

He is a very unique vocalist. I have never heard anyone like him. I would recommend listening to unfortunate snort on YouTube because it really shows off his vocal talent and his uniqueness. The rev sings lead for all of the songs because it was a side project with guitarist synyster gates called pinkly smooth.

The rev is the best back vocal and also best drummer in the world I will miss you the rev, foREVer

Better then m shadows

75 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.

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!

There is something about this man and his amazing voice that I can't get enough of.

He should be in top 10 not on 75

78 Brandon Boyd

Boyd has the most improved vocals for sure and I cannot wait to see where he goes from here his range and tone are phenomenal.

nothing compares to brandon boyd live, youtube 'under my umbrella RAR 2005'... flawless

Wow! He deserves in the top #10 best vocalist!

Listen to If Not Now, When? To hear his soft, ballad tone and then listen to Rogues to hear his more rock, "umph" tone. Both are beautifully different and yet complimentary.

79 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!

80 Mike Shinoda Mike Shinoda Michael Kenji "Mike" Shinoda is an American musician, rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, graphic designer, manager and film composer.

His voice is so beautiful and he is amazing, I mean he raps like nobody else and he can sing soft too. Every time I hear him singing I feel the emotion from his voice and it's so deep. His raping is meaningful, powerful and very different from what we hear nowadays. Mike should be at least in top 20.

He's such a good vocalist, Listen to songs like In Between, Hands Held High and when raps in songs like In The End, Bleed It Out, etc. Or some of his songs in Fort Minor.
Mike Shinoda Is my favorite vocalist, he can rap and sing in a delicate mode and it sounds great all the time
