Most Unique Male Voices in Modern Rock

I'm young and in this list are only singers with unique and "unmistakable" voices. I don't mention Freddy Mercury, Rob Plant and so many others because I want this list to have "MODERN" singers. If you don't know some of these singers go check them out before criticize.

21 Tobias Sammet Tobias Sammet Tobias Sammet is a German metal musician, best known as the vocalist and primary songwriter of the power metal band Edguy, as well as the founder, main singer and bassist of the metal opera Avantasia.
22 Shaun Morgan Shaun Morgan Shaun Morgan Welgemoed, known publicly as Shaun Morgan, is a South African musician and singer for the post-grunge/alternative metal band Seether.

Very underrated singer and has a super recognizable voice. When you hear Seether there's no doubt who your listening too.

23 Tim 'Ripper' Owens Tim 'Ripper' Owens Timothy S. "Ripper" Owens is an American heavy metal singer who first gained attention as the lead singer of Judas Priest, and then Iced Earth. He took the nickname "Ripper" from the Judas Priest song "The Ripper" during his time in the tribute band "British Steel". He currently performs with Beyond more.
24 Adam Gontier Adam Gontier Adam 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.

Much better than Adam Levine when it comes to singing, also the list says Modern Rock so uh Freddie Mercury doesn't really belong here.

He can rock every emotion with his voice! Rock, smooth, high, low! Just listen to three days grace and you will understand!

This guy is incredible. I was blown away by his voice...

Best singer ever

His debut solo album Hesitant Alien was released more.

Fantastic, unique and emotive voice - there is no one out there like him, though there are many who try to emulate his style.

Name one person who sounds like Gerard. THAT'S RIGHT, NO ONE DOES!

There is no other person in the world that sounds like Gerard Way. His voice is amazing.

Hot, funny, talented

My God! He has The Best Voice and is The S.E.X.I.E.S.T.!
I Love Yew!

No one can sing one more night or moves like a jagger they always fail

Absolutely true, his voice is so unique, like one pfthe kind for real. And he totally can song in many type of music! Don't mention about his face... Pretty as fackk. Adam Levine is the onesuper talented frontman of pop rock band in this generation. Maroon 5 is the one best band in this world, no douth, because of Adam's uniquely beautiful voice and their unique music. I love Adam Levine, Axl Rose, Alex Turner, george Michael, Elvis and the guy from Stereo phoenic voices. - emmetthiddlestoner

27 Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury Freddie Mercury (5th September 1946 - 24th November 1991) was a Tanzanian-born British singer with Persian ancestry, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the British rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. more.

Why isn't he higher on this list? Listen to Bohemian Rhapsody. Nothing else needs to be said.

The greatest and amazing voice that ever was. It is sad to see that people do not know what a unique voice is. Who can sing like him 'Bohemian Rhapsody', 'Somebody To Love', 'Save Me', The Show Must Go On', 'Innuendo', 'White Queen, 'The March Of The Black Queen' 'It's A Hard Life' 'Nevermore' Teo Torriate' etc, etc. The most warm and powerful voice, and he deservs to be on top of this list. - Caty

He was a very talented man, but maybe the reason he's not higher is because it says modern rock.

Freddie in 27 th place? Are you kidding me? The greatest singer of all time.

28 David Draiman David Draiman David Michael Draiman is an American songwriter and the vocalist for the band Disturbed as well as for the band Device.

I don't care if you like Disturbed's voice or not, but you will memorize his voice the second you hear it. I love Matt Shadows and Avenged Sevenfold, but David Draiman has a much more distinctive voice and I personally like Disturbed better. But that doesn't change the fact that David has the most distinctive voice in rock.

How is he so low? Damn. By the way, he is the singer for disturbed.

29 Jared Leto Jared Leto

Jared has one of the best voices I've ever listened to in the last 50 years. Completely unique, goes from low to extremely high, always keeping a clean sound and possessing an incredible scream.

Jared Leto is awesome! He has the best voice!

30 James Hetfield James Hetfield James Alan Hetfield was born on August 3, 1963. He is an American musician, singer and songwriter known for being the co-founder, lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for the American heavy metal band Metallica.
31 Thom Yorke Thom Yorke Thomas Edward "Thom" Yorke is an English musician best known as the singer and principal songwriter of the alternative rock band Radiohead.
32 T.O.P (BigBang)
33 Maynard James Keenan Maynard James Keenan Maynard James Keenan, often referred to by his initials MJK, is an American musician, record producer, winemaker, and actor, best known as the vocalist for Grammy Award-winning progressive metal band Tool.

Should be miles above the list, no one sounds quite like him

34 Kellin Quinn Kellin Quinn This is a redirect from a person who is a member of a group to a general, related topic, such as the group name, organization, ensemble or team of membership.

He has the most unique, different, amazing, voice that I've heard so far.

How can Kellin not even be in the list?
He can sing, scream, rap and even beatbox!

Sweetest voice ever

35 Serj Tankian Serj Tankian Serj Tankian is a Lebanese-born Armenian-American singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, poet, and political activist.

He makes his voice different to be unique and deserves recognition for that but isn't really a skilled singer

I thought this list was for "Most Unique Voices," not "Best Voices." Serj's voice certainly falls under the 'unique' category and should be much higher on this list!

I needed to add Serj. He deserves number 3 at least.
P.S. benjamin Burnley is a dick and doesn't deserve a spot on this list

36 Brendon Urie Brendon Urie Brendon Boyd Urie, more commonly known as Brendon Urie, was born April 12, 1987, in St. George, Utah. He is an American singer, songwriter, musician and multi-instrumentalist. He is best own as the lead singer of the American pop-rock band Panic! At The Disco. He is the only original remaining member. more.

He can do anything with his voice honestly he can sing a higher note higher than I can scream and he can make his voice deeper than the deepest hole in the ground and not to mention I was shocked when I heard him do scream-o after hearing his high notes like honestly he is an angel

37 Robbie Williams Robbie Williams
