Jorn is amazing. His very long discography is filling out with a bunch of amazing songs, but if you want something like special, listen Millenium - Hourglass.

Top 10 material without a doubt? Few can match his range, from quiet melody to jet engine. A true singers singer. Listen to Beyond twilight Crying.

Should always be in the top 10. Best singer in my opinion.

86 Warrel Dane

Definitely a guy whose vocal abilities shouldn't be underestimated. His range is impressive from the lower tracks such as his cover of 'Lucretia my Reflection' by Sisters of Mercy and other tracks off his solo album, to the higher parts in songs such as 'What Tomorrow Knows' or 'Garden of Grey', or heck, just check out 'Future Tense' and his stuff from Sanctuary. The power behind this guys voice is incredible.

He is great. 80? No he is in top 20. his lower tone, screams, growls and mainly the power of his voice is amazing

88 Devin Townsend Devin Townsend Devin Garret Townsend is a Canadian musician, songwriter and record producer. He was the founder, songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist in extreme metal band Strapping Young Lad from 1994 to 2007 and has an extensive career as a solo artist.

How is he not top? I mean... Just... How? He's gotta be the best singer in the entire world, I'm not even joking...

A vocal range that is not to be questioned, Devin is possibly the greatest frontman ever to present themself on a stage and exhale music.

89 Dax Riggs Dax Riggs Dax David Riggs is an American musician, best-known for formerly fronting the sludge metal band Acid Bath in the 1990s. Dax has been a part of many projects since then, including Agents of Oblivion and Deadboy & the Elephantmen.

Fantastic vocalist. Conveys passion and emotion in his songs.

94 Myles Kennedy Myles Kennedy Myles Richard Kennedy is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Alter Bridge, and as the lead vocalist in Slash's current band: Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.

How the hell is Myles Kennedy below Jonathan Davis and Matt Shadows? I like both bands but come on, the vocals aren't exactly stellar. Matt's voice sounds so nasally on his high notes, it's ridiculous. Myles has the most dynamic voice I have ever heard in rock music. Just listen to Blackbird by Alter Bridge. Perhaps their greatest song and it greatly shows off his range. There's a reason Slash chose Myles to sing for his solo band - he's a much better version of Axl Rose.

Myles is like the child of Chris Cornell's voice and Axl Rose's. It has the range and power of Chris's, but it also is slightly more contained, like Axl. Like both singers, he can hit ridiculous high notes and like Chris, he can play fast riffs at the same time. Listen to Cry of Achilles, Addicted to Pain, or Blackbird and you'll see what I'm talking about.

4 octaves people. Seriously. Better than Axl in so many ways, most of which being that he's not a self-absorbed ass.

Hi is the best singer of this century
