Best Male Singers
The Contenders: Page 4
Unfortunately the majority of individuals voting on this would have not understand who Rob Halford is! Popular Music has nothing on the God's of Rock such as Rob Halford, Don Dokken, Blackie Lawless and not to forget Ronnie James Dio. Having an appreciation and an understanding of all genres of music will only provide one with an insight into what real music is about!
Rob Halford BLOWS MY MIND! ! He pours every ounce of his energy into his music like nobody else. Check out his performance in Hear N Aid "We're Stars" (Google it) and you will get a taste of what he is made of. What a range! He gets me so pumped! I heard he has a back round in opera. No words can express how great a vocalist he is. Truly amazing seems to be an understatement. You HAVE to listen for yourself!
Wow?! Just because a man can dance around he deserves to be in the top 10? People today don't know what real vocals are. If you did Rob would certainly be higher. Greatest Metal singer and Greatest Singer of all time.
Shame on you all, for not voting this guy! He's so good that you can compare him with singers like Freddie Mercury! - ShahryRKnoTV 8 Comments
He sings for mcfly which is the hottest and best band ever
Most powerful singer that act lyrics in super high voice for 30 years
In metal, that's amazing! He is the best and his sound make me crazy and emotion! He deserve more and more than it!
He has metal magic in his voice he ing so good without any effects no body match him at least he not deserve here
James sings more than 30 years and he still sounds awesome!
His voice has changed over the years but I think that's good. I think it would be boring to hear always the same voice. He sounds much different on master of puppets than on death magnetic and that is one thing which makes Metallica the best band of all time for me!
I hope he will never stop singing 'cause his voice has something that makes me feeling good.
LONG LIVE JAMES HETFIELD!
James is the best, he should be at least in TOP 3...V 15 Comments
The best live performer of our times. Wonderful voice and wonderful music.
It's a matter of justice! The Angels singer is one of the best that UK has even known and besides being a very good singer, he's also the best entertainer on earth... His awards are countless!
There are no words to describe you. you are the best pop star I have ever seen. daily I spend 5 hours of day listening to your songs!
How is James Arthur better than him?V 8 Comments
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.
Most amazing male vocalist of all time! His power, his range...truly incredible. His voice has rendered me speechless many times over the years. So sad beyond words it is now silenced.V 19 Comments
Van Morrison? Peter Gabriel? James Brown? Little Richard? Wow, there are singers who didn't make the top 100 that should be in the top 20!
I don't think he should be #1, but he should be higher up the list than this.
Greatest singer who has ever drawn breath.
He must be a really nice guy or something, because he is rated too high on just about every list I've seen. Sorry, but one good solo album does not put him ahead of Sam Cooke and Mick Jagger. Was he Steve Perry's role model for singing? No, Sam Cooke was. Has anyone written a song called, "Moves like Sambora"? No. I see him rated as a great songwriter, which he's not. Then I come here and see him hailed as a great singer. The only list Richie belongs on is best guitarists, and frankly somewhere in the middle of the pack..sorry, just being real...
the guitarist of bon jovi!
listen to his solo stuff and you will know that he's great - richie4life
Love Richie's voice. He has that deep voice that is amazing when he really lets it out. - teri1961
I never knew he sang - gemclobenV 2 Comments
How isn't Michael Bolton near the top of this list, his voice is amazing!
His voice is incredibly powerful, distinctive and soulful! He can reach points of 3 and a half octaves, and he is exactly the same live as he is in the recording studio. To put it simply, his voice is incredibly underrated.
Michael Bolton was not very widely known, but if you truly listen to his voice it is a thing of beauty second only to Axl Rose. I look past genre to the actual talent. Bieber, Eminem etc. Don't even belonging on a list of SINGERS. Dancers, poets maybe.. Not singers though.
He has a powerful voice! I believe He should be in top 10V 12 Comments
If were going to go with all styles of music and opera being the purest form, then Luciano Pavarotti should be number 1. No question.
This top ten list is horrible. Pavoratti is definitely top three of all time. This list was made by a twelve year old.
It's true, he is the best in my opinion.
Makes Freddie Mercury sound like a little choir boy.V 4 Comments
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.V 1 Comment
I think it was In 1963 Orbison toured with The Beatles before they were well known. Orbison did fourteen encores before The Beatles played. He was better than The Beatles and they knew it. In a way, one could say he helped them to become great. Orbison was over the top to help express certain emotions that we all have, especially grief. "Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep."
Roy Orbison was the most naturally gifted male vocalist ever. Maybe other singers have been or are more entertaining but none could produce such perfect notes with so little effort.
When I hear or play Orbison in my apt, I turn volume UP and let myself groove.. And let go. And once I'm in that Orbison mood I need more... Just hanging on til I had my fill.. Til I'm satiated. Its like chocolate or wine or sex. Then I resume my whatever. But don't get that serendipity chance to hear R.O. much any more.. sadly.
The idea that roy is not in the top ten means one thing. These are opinions. When Elvis and the "Boss," both say he was the best, that means somethingV 14 Comments
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!
Wow. What a great vocalist. For his great ballads in the past. Just wonderful to listen to.
What an insult to rank Luther Vandross 66. This list is a joke and clearly not being ranked by vocal ability.V 5 Comments
I just love Mick Jagger! He is still so hot! His voice is very sexy too! Mick has a unique quality in his performance and his voice. There is no one quite like him.
Yes, yes, yes, folks! Don't believe the reality show judges, being a great singer isn't all about staying on key. Being a great singer is about showing imagination, and moving a stranger's soul with the melody and words you've been given. That is why people like Mick Jagger, John Fogerty, and especially Don Henley need to be higher on this list!
Lead singer and founding member of the Rolling stones.
Extremely talented, has been knighted and has a song written about him and his 'mones'.
73? But of course Bruno mars is in the top 10V 7 Comments
I think I was in a coma when this man's band came on the scene. I do not remember Steelheart, but when I tripped across the video for She's gone I went into a state of shock. This is the most amazing voice I have ever heard. The whole band is so talented. I'm a Grandmother but my husband caught me dancing my butt of listening to Mili. Thanks Milijenko my Police Officer husband thinks I've lost my mind.
seriously, listen to this guy. hes amazing -
One of the best rock singer of all time!V 2 Comments

The most versatile singer in the word. He can sing Pure classical, semi classical, ghazal, all type of Bollywood songs ( romantic, sufi, patriotic, pappy type, etc), pop, rock, jazz, blues also. And he is master in all these genres.V 106 Comments
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.!
He should be at least #15 and Steven Taylor should've been #2 and David Bowie at #1V 10 Comments
Have you listened to "All of Me"? This man has a beautiful voice that is just pure magic to listen to.
John Legend should be in the top 20. This guy has amazing vocals.
Seriously? #83? You people truly have no idea, do you? The man belongs in the top 5.
In the top 10 guaranteedV 4 Comments
Or you could say he sounds like someone just woke him up from a nap.
THE most hauntingly exquisite male voice in music history!
Drake is a little know vocal gem.
Nick Drake's voice... A soft, silken, melancholic murmer that caresses the soul.
