Greatest Heavy Metal/Hard Rock Vocalists


The Contenders: Page 6

101 Chad Grey

By far the best on this list. No reason he's this far down! You guys are crazy!

102 Meat Loaf Meat Loaf Michael Lee Aday is an American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor usually known by his stage name Meat Loaf.

Come on! The man can belt like no other; he's nearly killed his voice--and himself--for his fans; employs writers like Jim Steinman; helped pioneer theatrical rock along with Alice Cooper; and is overall one of the greatest frontmen of all time! Don't understand why he's not number one, but everybody has their own opinion.

103 Su-Metal

Su has to be on this list if you don't believe me listen to Megitsune, Akatsuki, Ijime Dame Zettai, Headbanger, Catch Me If You Can or Akumu no Rondo. Her voice is soothing to the soul, also shes only 16 enough said.

104 Timo Kotipelto Timo Kotipelto Timo Antero Kotipelto is the vocalist of the Finnish power metal band Stratovarius and is the creator and vocalist of the power metal band Kotipelto. V 1 Comment
105 George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher George George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher is an American extreme metal vocalist for the American death metal band Cannibal Corpse and the lesser-known melodic death metal band Paths of Possession.
106 Tim "Ripper" Owens Tim Timothy S. "Ripper" Owens is an American heavy metal singer who currently performs with Beyond Fear, Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force and Charred Walls of the Damned.

Replaced Rob Halford and isn't even on the list.

Should be top 10. Most underrated metal singer of all time

107 Lzzy Hale - Halestorm Lzzy Hale - Halestorm Elizabeth Mae "Lzzy" Hale is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. She is best known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the American hard rock band Halestorm, which she co-founded in 1997.

Not only does she have the best rough female vocals I have ever heard, but she has as much range and power and anyone on the list. She can sing clean as good as any pop or rock singer and her screams are fantastic and she can hold them out for so long. So much energy in her performance too. She will definitely become one of the greats.

Lzzy has the roughest girl voice in metal/rock, excluding girls that scream.

120 Don Dokken

My personal opinion Don should be behind Klaus Meine, and both should be in top ten this dude sang lead for the scorpions when Klaus'es voice was damaged. Dons voice can get to that higher vibrato range one of the best out of the 80s hair era by far.
