Best Male Singers

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

WTF why billie is not in the top 10! hi voice is beathtaking! the ones that made this list should listen to "good riddance"! greenday and billie joe are great and even more! love them!

Ok so Billie Joe is like the best singer ever! The person who made this list apparently doesn't know what good music is. I'm in love with Green Day, old or new. BJA-TC-MD forever!

This list is such a joke, this man has been sending powerful messages through his music for decades, while the likes of idiot one directioners are above him. Him along with Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool have one of the most amazing and revolutionary bands ever. American Idiot was the first musical critic of the American nation after the fall of the Twin Towers. Dookie is a classic album people still listen to constantly, and will continue to do so for years. So yes, I'm going to say the B.J.A. is the best male singer of all time.

i love him

44 Bob Marley Bob Marley Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim.

Bob Marley is the personification of reggae!

May have been somewhat stylistic, however his singing voice was not impressive. Consider comparing his actual voice to other singers. He doesn't stand well.

Bob marley is a god his music was and still one of the greats of all time how he is not futher up this list is an engima to me

Talked about peace love and equality, and is ranked 44.

Eminem uses homophobic slurs and lyrics about wanting to kill women and is ranked 18, when he isn't even a singer. Kill me. - 445956

45 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

I really don't think that rappers count as singers, I mean most singers have to try to get that perfect pitch. Practice to get that silkiness. All rappers do is say a lot of stuff fast without a tune. Rappers like Eminem who rap with a beat and supernaturally fast deserve a place but I really don't think that there is another decent rapper on the planet... Maybe Snoop dogg or Wiz khalifa, 2chainz but nobody else.

Drake started from the bottom

In my opinion, I dislike his music.

He sucks, autotune doesn't count
Have you heard his real voice, it sounds worst then Bob Dylan, and drakes lyrics are crap to
Atlas dylan has meaningful lyrics

46 Chris Cornell Chris Cornell Chris Cornell was an American rock musician and singer-songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter and rhythm guitarist for Seattle rock band Soundgarden and as former lead vocalist and songwriter for the supergroup Audioslave. He died on May 17, 2017.

HE deserves to be at least in the top 10 he is by far better the Justin Bieber, I don't even care if I spelled his last name wrong this list is bogus and the creators should definitely come to their senses when they review this.

Chris Cornell... Not in the top 10?!?! I truly do not understand that at all. Please listen to his solo work and his work with Soundgarden. The man is utterly brilliant and in the same league as the likes of Robert Plant!

absolutely amazing. carries a style all his own exemplified through the work of Soundgarden.

If you've ever bothered to listen to him, you would know how great he was.

47 Jim Morrison Jim Morrison James Douglas "Jim" Morrison was an American singer, songwriter, and poet best remembered as the lead singer of the Doors.

Not only an icon of the free speech in America, but the greatest vocals and all he sings spontaneous

ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Not even in the top 30 at least?! This man was so poetic and beautiful, he oozed charisma and had so much talent. he was a crazy guy but that shouldn't have effected the legacy he left with the doors anyway!

Passionate all the time, and had so much power in his voice.

Eminem is 18. Chris Brown is 35. Drake is 48. Jim Morrison is 52. Wake me up from this nightmare - 445956

48 Chris Martin Chris Martin

Chris Martin is honestly one of the best all time singers in the world, I can't believe he is not in the top 10 let alone the top 50 he's better than pretty much all the people in front of him so please people vote! Vote! Vote!

It's about time he and Coldplay got the respect they deserve.

Chris Martin has an amazing voice... A reason why Coldplay is such a great band.

Probably Chris wasn't on the top 10 because no one knowed that he's the lead singer of Coldplay, he's so humbled that he didn't let his name reach the sky just because he cares for his band. He's my idol and I don't think tbis list was fare.

49 Johnny Cash Johnny Cash John R. "Johnny" Cash (1932-2003) was an American singer-songwriter, guitarist, actor, and author, who was widely considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century and one of the best-selling music artists of all time, having sold more than 90 million records worldwide. He died of ...read more.

How can he be under Justin beiber? The man was a great, he sang spiritual songs, classic country ones and rock 'n' roll at one point! His greatest recordings were live, he didn't mime! He could perform flawlessly without any auto tuners and was a lovely guy!

Jonny Cash just has a voice that makes you want to listen to him. It's a deep bass that shows feeling when he sings. He played guitar well but without his voice he wouldn't be the legend he is.

He asked my Grandma out at one of his concerts.! She turned him down because he was with my Grandpa.! I would love to be related to Johnny Cash.!

Why is chris brown above johnny and some k pop bs, writes the most amazing music I won't call him best ever but come on adam lambert is ahead of a legend that makes me concerned

50 Neil Diamond Neil Diamond Neil Leslie Diamond is an American singer-songwriter and musician with a career that began in the 1960s.

Neil Diamond should rank in the top 5 male performers of all time. It is odd to me to see him at number 76... I guess it is just that few of today's music listeners remember him. There are people higher up the list that I haven't even heard of but I guess that's the times.

saw him live in concert in Manchester in 2006, what a true superstar I'm only 29 but no one no one comes close
number one in my book

What a great talent. Should be way higher.

Neil diamond is top 5 all time, why the hell is Adam Lambert even on this list!

51 Art Garfunkel Art Garfunkel Arthur Ira "Art" Garfunkel is an American singer, poet and actor. He partnered in his earlier years with Paul Simon in the folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel.

Seriously? If you are going for SINGERS he should be in top 10-20, he had the most beautiful voice of anyone male singer I have heard. Bridge of troubled water, sound of silence, homeward bound? Outstanding songs. Garfunkel is one of the most underrated artists in this list.

If you're talking about pure singing ability there is no way Art Garfunkel is not in the top 20. Can you listen to Bridge Over Troubled Water without getting goose bumps? I can't.

A really great singer, not nearly as well known today as he should be. All you idiot beliebers out there, starved for decent music, I pity you.

I listen to this man everyday.

52 James Arthur James Arthur James Andrew Arthur is a British singer-songwriter who won the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012. His debut single, "Impossible", was released through Syco Music after the final and debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart in its first week of release.

This is better than ed sheeran and james blunt combined on their best days

Ok so if he's 49 th barely self anything or won much compared to ed and James who are way higher than him

53 Jeff Buckley Jeff Buckley Jeffrey Scott "Jeff" Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997) raised as Scott "Scottie" Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. ...read more.

In my opinion BY FAR the best singer of all time. You can feel his voice in the pit of your stomach. He could pack so much emotion in one single whisper. I love Robert Plant, I love Bowie and Freddie Mercury, but none get anywhere near Jeff Buckley. Buckley was real, raw. The only singer who's ever brought tears to my eyes. Utterly, indescribably amazing. If you've never listened to him go and buy, download, steal if you have to, his music because you're missing something incredible.

Embarrassingly low. That's what you get for having a list on such a popular website - you'll get a lot of popular singers who have no real talent really high. I really think Buckley is the best vocalist of all time, but he should certainly be at least in the top 10.

It's so sad that he wasn't put on this list. The man had a 4.5 octave range and you put David archuleta ahead of him? No one put as much emotion into their music as him. Listen to his song so real and his cover of hallelujah and tell me that Justin Bieber is better than him

No-one puts Buckley in the corner! this list is garbage.

54 Nat King Cole Nat King Cole Nathaniel Adams Coles, known professionally as Nat King Cole, was an American singer who first came to prominence as a leading jazz pianist.

King Cole needs to be rated higher. The songs you list for him didn't rank high on the charts even though "Unforgettable" was on the charts for close to 20 weeks in 1951. You left off "too Young" (1951), "Mona Lisa" (1950) and "Nature Boy" (1948) and each had 6-7 week runs at #1. None of the songs you list ranked as high. There were lots more in the 1940's and early 1950's.

Again my father's to blame for bombarding our house with this. But as he says "It's the Velvet Voice of Nat King Cole". Who can argue with that?

Although many young people don't even know who he was Ramblin' Rose and Unforgetable are terrific.

55 Bruce Springsteen Bruce Springsteen Bruce Frederick Joseph Springsteen (born September 23, 1949) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and humanitarian. He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political ...read more.

He should be ahead of Adam Lambert. Best songwriter since Bob Dylan, A very recognizable voice (sings in a low voice, but can hit higher notes than somebody like Katy Perry). Put down your Justin Bieber and enjoy The Boss.

A previous poster talked about Ray Charles' amazing vocals in We Are the World. That's certainly true, but what about the great exchange between Springsteen and Stevie Wonder? That made the song for me.

Number 56? Really. He should be in the top 15 at least. He is so underrated.

56 Jimmy Barnes Jimmy Barnes James Dixon Swan, better known as Jimmy Barnes, is a Scottish-born Australian rock singer-songwriter.

Jimmy would perform better live than in the studio. Never let the crowd down. Strongest most powerful voice in history. Just bloody awesome!

I'd place Freddie Mercury in first place and Jimmy Barnes in his prime, around 1984, in 2nd place. Listen to When The War Is Over by Cold Chisel (Jimmys old band). Grundy rock into extremely high notes in Full head voice.

57 Matt Shadows Matt Shadows Matthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

He's the best singer ever his voice makes me lose my mind, it makes me dream of all the great things and it remember me a lot of Jimmy Sullivan

evil laugh in every song avenged sevenfold...
ahaha7x... - adamtkj

I love a7x and m. shadows is the bestest singer ever. - a7xlover4ever

Great voice at least he's top 100 it's just no one seems to be into metal anymore

58 Luther Vandross Luther Vandross

LET ANYONE ON THIS LIST INSPIRE AS MANY NEW BABIES AS LUTHER OR RULE LOVE BALLADS LIKE LUTHER AND HE WILL FAIL. ONLY GREATS LIKE SAM COOKE OR DON HATHAWAY OR VOCAL POWERHOUSES STEVE PERRY OR FREDDY MERCURY COULD COMPARE. WHOEVER VOTED FOR MOST OF THE TOP TWENTY ON THIS LIST SHOULD LISTEN TO THESE GREATS AND REEVALUATE THEIR JUDGEMENT. JUSTIN BIEBER OVER ANY OF THESE FOR GOD'S SAKE? NOW I'M CONVINCED WHY REAL MALE VOCALISTS ARE BECOMING EXTINCT DUE TO THE OVER COMMERCIALIZED DUMBING DOWN OF AMERICA. MANUFACTURED FAUX TALENT HAS DILUTED AWAY GOOD TASTE.

Luther Vandross is the best male singer hands down. His voice is so rich and smooth and has an incredible range. Lowest note A1. How Justin Bieber is above him beats me! Bieber can't even sing. Vote for Vandross!

What an insult to rank Luther Vandross 66. This list is a joke and clearly not being ranked by vocal ability.

Luther ever time

I love Ozzy so much! Even after leaving Black Sabbath, he has still done some kick ass music. And he's not called the Prince of Darkness or Godfather of Heavy Metal for nothing. Ozzy rules! I would totally meet him if I ever had the chance.

not what he used to be but the Ozz-Man was fantastic in his prime and is still great

My favorite metal singer because he can sing Well a hard rock song as he can sing a ballad

Badass singer nobody sounds like the man.
