Basically those guys in Modern Rock, that can wail their lungs out. The only singers I might not include for this list are: Tyler Conolly and Billie Joe Armstrong. Billie because he's not really a screaming rocker. Tyler cause eh not really sure if his voice is raspy. Genres allowed for this list:All sub genres of Rock and Metal as along as the singer has a raspy voice.
The Top Ten
1Adam GontierAdam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.
I've never heard a man have a more raspier than Adam himself only person who comes close in my opinion is Corey Taylor.
You've got something wrong with you if you don't enjoy his voice in his music.

11Harry StylesHarry Edward Styles is an English singer and song writer, known as a member of the boy band One Direction .
I think harry styles has one of the most underrated raspy voices people don't even give him a chance to prove himself but if you listen to his rock songs like kiwi and only angel youll see it for yourself that he can sing
Even as a metalhead I have to admit his solo stuff is pretty dope.. at least vocally
LOL NO. Who added this joke here?
12Shaun MorganShaun Morgan Welgemoed, known publicly as Shaun Morgan, is a South African musician and singer for the post-grunge/alternative metal band Seether.
He's generally raspy both studio wise and live, he can sure as hell wail and when he does he succeeds.
13Matt WalstMatt Walst born December 28th 1982, is a Canadian songwriter/singer that formed the alternative rock band My Darkest Days in 2005. That band got signed by Chad Kroger in 2010 and they released two albums. Members of the band left and after Adam Gontier left Three Days Grace Matt was chosen to replace ...read more.
While his voice isn't as raspy live anymore, it's still raspy studio album wise. And before 2013, his voice was quite raspy.
14Tim McIlrathTimothy James "Tim" McIlrath is an American punk rock musician. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist, songwriter and co-founder of the American punk rock band Rise Against.
15Benjamin BurnleyBenjamin Jackson Burnley IV is an American musician, composer, and producer, best known as the founder and frontman of the American rock band Breaking Benjamin.

16John CooperJohn Landrum Cooper, professionally credited as John L. Cooper, is an American musician, singer and songwriter. He has been the lead vocalist, bassist and co-founder of the Grammy-nominated American Christian rock band Skillet since 1996.
He can definitely be raspy at times especially with songs like "Monster", "Not Gonna Die", "Hero" etc. which is rather impressive for a Christian singer.
18Chad KroegerChad Robert Kroeger is a Canadian musician and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Canadian rock band, Nickelback.
Very underrated vocally. Decently wide range as well as havingredients very grungy/raspy vocals, while hitting higher notes. Very difficult thing to do. He should definitely get some credit for that.
19Layne StaleyLayne Thomas Staley was an American musician who served as the lead singer and co-songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains, which he founded with guitarist Jerry Cantrell in Seattle, Washington in 1987. Alice in Chains rose to international fame as part of the grunge movement of the early 1990s. ...read more.
How is this God-Tier of a singer not on this list? His natural raspy and powerful voice is unmatched. He may have gone downhill After 94' but In his early years, he was a force to be reckoned with. Even Corey Taylor looks up to staley as a higher power vocal influence.
