102 Ruki

Ruki, from the GazettE is full talented vocalist. His death-voice make everybody who listen to his song got hypnotized. He can scream, growl, calm, even rap. He has unique and the one and only voice. And his super talent is to make such a damn great lyrics. His lyric is very meaningful, deep, romantic, simile, touch-hearted. And also he composed almost all the GazettE song. He is very super-talented and creative artist, not just great vocalist! I believe he will be the best vocalist in the whole world. Go Ruki the GazettE!

Ruki is the only singer that could make me cry though I dun understand what he's singing about. His vocal range is quite high but whenever he sing in smooth voice, everyone will be touched. His growl could make me goosebumps

Ruki can do anything! His voice is truly magnificent! He hypnotize everyone with that awesome death voice of his!

103 Greg Lake Greg Lake

Definitely should be in the top twenty if not top ten! Beautiful, beautiful voice! Majestic and angelic at the same time! Before he lost his voice!

Greg Lake is literally the voice of Progressive Rock. Hid work with both King Crimson and ELP helped define the genre.

His voice is just amazing and always moves me. He's my favourite vocalist.

I agree...He should have been at least in the top 20. many great songs. From hard rock to slow, with words to touch your sole.
One of my top ten!

104 Roger Waters Roger Waters George Roger Waters, is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He was mostly known for the secondary lead vocals and bassist of Pink Floyd .

One of the most epic voices in the history of rock music. Nobody can match the voice of George Roger Waters.

Gilmour has a much more beautiful voice, but I can't find him here... He really should be higher than Waters.

So underrated, should be higher

Best of the best

105 Kellin Quinn Kellin Quinn This is a redirect from a person who is a member of a group to a general, related topic, such as the group name, organization, ensemble or team of membership.

I think most of these list are accurate going through this list. This might not. I am 13 I love kellin Quinn but even I know Elton John. Should be in the top 10 not 115th he is a classic. He has been playing before I was born probably before my parents where born. But kellin Quinn is my favorite vocalist his voice is amazing. But his whole band is great what's a vocalist without it's band. Congratulations. Your my favorite

Kellin's vocal range is huge. He is so amazing. He may be teased just because his voice is higher than most male voices, but that's what makes him unique.

I wouldn't go so far to say he's the best here, most of you haven't heard some of these other people!

Kellin has the range of a thousand axl's. He should be top 10

106 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?

107 Ivan Moody Ivan Moody Ivan L. Moody, known by the pseudonym Ghost during his time with Motograter, is the lead vocalist for American heavy metal band Five Finger Death Punch from Las Vegas, Nevada.

When u listen to the man's raw vocals, you see a damaged man expressing himself in an angry yet beautiful way. I can tell you one thing, singers like Ivan and Brent smith can sing way better than people like John Lennon ever did, no disrespect to him but Ivan is a great vocalist.

Ivan Moody is underscored here in my opinion. He should have been ranked higher.

He's one of the best vocalist I've ever heard, he has a lot of meaning behind his lyrics and the rest of the ban is amazing if I ever met any if them I would faint in a heartbeat.
If they ever stopped I would die.BVB for ever

116 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.

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

How is Dave so low on this list? D:

Not exactly top 10 material, but 97? Really?

117 Phil Anselmo Phil Anselmo Philip Hansen "Phil" Anselmo is an American musician who is best known as the former lead vocalist of the heavy metal band Pantera. He currently is the vocalist of heavy metal bands Down and Superjoint Ritual.
118 David Coverdale David Coverdale David Coverdale is an English rock singer most famous for his work with Whitesnake, the commercially successful hard rock band he founded in 1978. Before Whitesnake, Coverdale was the lead singer of Deep Purple from late 1973 to 15 March 1976, when he resigned from the band and established his solo more.

If singing's about vocals, Coverdale covers every range and every emotion... Here I Go Again, Still of the Night... Truly unbeatable man's voice.
Possibly along with Paul Rodgers, Mark Knopfler, Klaus Meine, Eddie Vedder, Jim Morrison, Freddie Mercury, Roger Waters, Ian Anderson, John Fogerty, Steven Tyler, Bon Jovi, Axl Rose, Kurt Cobain, Billy Joel and Robert Plant the greatest rock/metal vocalist of all time.

116?! Are you out of your mind! Best ever!

Th e best voice bar none

114, he should be on top 20 at least,or at least on top 30,he is a good singer with both slow paced and high paced voice - zxm
