Top 10 Most Legendary Vocalist ScreamsOzzyVanHalen Which Vocalist has the most legendary scream in their songs?
The Top Ten
He is the god of screaming listen to him in live performance like given up place for my head faint wish one step closer. His voice is out of the world when he screams he can make anybody and listen to him
Incredible voice, powerful screams, meaningful lyrics, and master of screaming! No one could beat Chester when it comes on screaming. No one could scream for 17 seconds, except him! The legendary vocalist is CHESTER! Hands down...
Number 1 without a doubt, can scream amazingly and still sing amazing melodies for the longest time. LP rules. - lukestheman4
24%! Now a lot of remixes and votes on other singers can only move him from this place.Anyway I don't think he is better screamer than Ian Gillan or Rob Halford - zxmV 24 Comments
Speaking of legendary, Child In Time is where it started. Ian Gillan screams for about 2 minutes and does it extremely good. Before him, The Beatles screamed, too, but Gillan made screams part of the singing art because his screams are well controlled and mastered. He screams on most of the songs and also, his screams are systematic on many songs - Hard Lovin' Man, Bloodsucker. - Metal_Treasure
CHILD IN TIME is some of the most wicked screaming ever. - ultrablastic123
It's not only Child In Time that he screamed.He screamed in other songs too.However two of my favorite screaming songs of him is Smoke On the Water (remix version) and Highway Star(the song starts with a screaming) - zxm
Serj can do anything he wants with his voice, INCLUDING SCREAMS. While he's not that heavy nowadays, he can still perform these as great as he used to do in System of a Down's glory days.
Serj is an absolute legend, unique and inspiring. His vocals are intelligent, passionate and emotive. There really isn't anyone like him.
Not only are his screams legendary, but his vocals are one of the best I have ever heard. A true master at his art.
Where is Corey Taylor (Slipknot)V 10 Comments
Freddie Mercury has a great screaming voice listen to We are the Champions, Under Pressure, and Another one bites the Dust and you will hear that rock scream and growl and bark in his voice and the song Hammer to Fall, and One vision really shows off his growl screams and the high pitch scream he did in the 80's song Under Pressure at the middle of the song when he went up so high and did a little bit of scream he is a rock screamer.
Yes like the visitor said he did a little bit a high pitched screaming in Under Pressure. And it was great - zxm
Just listen the Queen's songs that everyone will see.
I love queen so much and I like the screamV 1 Comment
Painkiller, a touch of evil, victim of changes, dreamer deceiver... And Chester is number one? Guys, please.
Seriously he should be number 1 for sure just listen to painkiller before you vote
I also think that Freddie mercury should be higher up!
He's scream is so deep and dirty, you can feel he's emotions when he sing, like disasterpiece!
Some have said the high-pitched screams, yelps and squeals heard on virtually every Roth-Halen song were actually done by bassist Michael Anthony, I don't think so. I think it was Roth. And those were such a signature sound for him, and major part of the appeal.
well while roth ripped off gillians screaming even though he denies it, he still outshines his mentor.
I agree number of the beast you can't beat that scream and right before the solo in rime of the ancient mariner
number of the beast rime of the ancient mariner and many others bruce is one of the best vocalist and has many great screams.
Number of the beast was the first thought that came to mind when I first read this topic.
his scream in the number of the beast - wolphert
A visitor recommended to listen to "second heartbeat" as an example of his legendary screams - ok, I listened to it twice. But there's nothing interesting there in terms of screams, let alone legendary screams. - Metal_Treasure
Listen to their early stuff like second heartbeatV 1 Comment
I used to think Chester was the champion with his 17 second scream in Given Up. However, Maynard's scream in Grudge crushes it coming in around 24 seconds. He said he couldn't talk for quite some time after the recording. It's not his only good scream either... the DIE and the end of Jerk Off is great. Most all of his work has some great screaming especially the late 90's. Check out those tracks before you write him off as the best screamer ever!
To the idiot that said no one can yell for 17 say seconds like the crappy Linkin Park singer, Tool- the grudge 25 second scream. Also jerk off is a crazy scream you tube Maynard James Keenan best screams 11m of insanity then make this list again, Maynard and tool are by far underrated even though they are the best alternative band of all time
Okay, Maynard may not be #1, but he certainly trumps Axl and Serj, without a doubt... He should definitely be in the top 5
Listen to him scream "DIE! " at the end of Jerk Off and I guarantee you'll all see why he deserves to be in the top 5.V 3 Comments
Nobody can scream so long and high like Eric. He is a Metal King
He screams often and long - his scream on Thor is about 33 seconds long (go to 4:35). This is the longest scream I know. - Metal_Treasure
About 28 seconds long, in the song Open Face Surgery. - Metal_TreasureV 1 Comment
Love hate love and Bleed the freak are only two of Staley's vocal masterpieces. I've been listening to him for over 20 years and he still takes my breath away with his vocal power and passion. RIP
For me he is the obvious number 1. I've never heard another scream that sounds like Layne's. It was so unique and filled with pain.
Layne Staley's scream is so unique and it is so powerful. His singing ability is unmatched and he is extremely underrated.V 1 Comment
The song, 'Won't Get Fooled Again', on the "Who's next" album. Daltrey earned his stripes the day he recorded the standard of Rock 'n Roll screams. -
Won't Get Fooled Again, Love Reign Over Me. He has done more, but that's all he needs. The greatest thing about his screams is they weren't just loud noises, they conveyed something. Won't Get Fooled Again showed his bitterness and frustration with the world and his desire to figh, while Love Reign Over Me showed his anguish and despair.
This is the second best scream on rock music... But I would have liked to vote for The Doors - When the music's over.
#1 scream in Wont get Fooled AgainV 1 Comment
Tyler's voice/scream is unique and very recognizable. He should be number 1. He became super popular thanks to his legendary scream - Irina2932
While Chester Bennington is good and all, there's a reason why Steven Tyler is called the Demon of Screaming. He should at least be in the Top 3!
easily number one, his voice is freking great!
Axl rose in number 2 - rock2metal
His screams are awesome - powerful and very well controlled. Some of his screams are even sorta melodoc which is an achievement. He's got the screaming experience from his early material when he used "screaming" vocal technique that was more aggressive and harsher than his late stuff. My fave scream is 'Fiddler on the Green' by Demons & Wizards (4:05). - Metal_Treasure
