Most Unique Singing Voices

The Contenders: Page 11

201 Tom Waits

Certainly the most unique, and should definitely be #1. And where is John fogerty (ccr) at on this list, or any of a hundred different punk singers? Do any of these voters actually listen to music?

Should be #1. Super raspy and way weird. No one could even sound like him if they tried. He is very individual and also is very much a hot body to look at and I would like to bear his children.

I can't believe he's so low on this list! Tom Waits has a fantastic voice, and it's definitely unique. While this list has a lot of unique voices, I think most of them were just upvoted because people like their songs or because they have nice voices. It's not the point of the list, though.

You may like his voice. You may hate his voice. But you certainly know it's his voice. That's what this list is supposed to be about.

202 Agnetha Faltskog Agnetha Faltskog

Wow, wow, wow.. Agnetha Faltskog's voice is so unique in that she can belt out ANY kind of dramatic song -powerfully, sing painfully and emotionally light with such tender fragility and then break glasses by reaching supersonic high pitched-perfect notes. One of the greatest female vocalists of all time. She should be in the top ten and this comes from a guy who loves all genres of music including classical, reggae, punk, speed garage and rock. Agnetha - We salute you!

At the risk of being named an international enemy of Sweden, I do have a bit of an issue here. Did the ladies from ABBA do enough recording on their own for their voices to be instantly recognizable? Maybe they did, I haven't followed their individual careers. I know one of them had a big hit called There's Someting Going On, but I'm not sure which one. In any case, I always enjoyed ABBA's music and both ladies are obviously very, very talented.

Agnetha's voice is distinct and powerfull. Other female artists have done covers of songs that Agnetha sang lead on and they struggled with the song. Agnetha easily sang the originals, and much better than the covers. - ekos

She should be way higher on this list! She can express her voice of happiness and sadness. Her voice is so sweet and sounds like an angel! Not only that but you're beautiful! You're one of my favourite singers!

203 Corey Taylor Corey Taylor Corey Todd Taylor was born in December 8, 1973. He is an American musician, author, and actor best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the Nu-metal band Slipknot and hard rock/alternative metal band Stone Sour.

He has been through life in hell in his own childhood full of stress, alcoholism, and all of his personal troubles, and he is paying back for the hard life he was put through with nothing but his voice and guitar. He may do things that will stress his vocal cords out, but there is no doubt that his neck can endure all the obstacles it has put through. He is 39 years old, and still looks great just like his vocals. He was the one working hard to earn his salary without any help while others decided to auto-tune their voices just to cash in.

Unbelievable power and emotion

Just listen to "Me Inside" and "Psychosocial" he has an incredible melodic voice and deep growls and he has this kind of bark in some songs like "The Negative One" he has a 5 octave range for Gods sake. Plus he's Corey Taylor

How is this legend of a man only number 76? He has such a unique sound to his voice and has an incredible range, just listen to Physcosocial and then Snuff to see for yourself. His screames are jaw-dropping that he uses in Slipknot and he has a fantastic singing voice as can be heard in Stone Sour - LewisR59

Listen to "Me inside" "Dead memories"
And "Gently" than you love this guy

204 Paul Stanley Paul Stanley Stanley Bert Eisen, known professionally by his stage name Paul Stanley, is an American musician, singer, songwriter and painter best known for being the rhythm guitarist and co-lead singer of the rock band Kiss.

Paul has definitely lost his voice today but he was a great singer in the prime of his career. I would love to hear the other 189 singers ahead of Paul attempt to sing the KISS songs "I Was Made For Lovin You", "Detroit Rock City", "Love Gun" and "Heaven's On Fire". Paul Stanley has the most unique voice of all the singers on this list and KISS IS THE HOTTEST BAND IN THE WORLD!

Well, the guy learned to sing better the longer his career ran. Played in the Phantom of the opera. No one sounds like him and he sounds like no one else.

205 Chris Martin Chris Martin

His voice is orgasmic! It is unique and is the only voice that can remind me of past events, like Chris' does. He deserves to be in the top ten, maybe some people confuse this list to be: "Top Ten Popular Singers. " - Unknown16

It is always so easy to identify the unique and obvious talent of Chris Martin. His amazing, haunting lyrics, huge chords and wonderful voice make Chris a rare and unique talent in his own right.

Chris Martin is a genius, his voice is wonderful and his music is the best of the BEST! Coldplay rules the world!

Never heard any voice like his, should be higher on the list. Where is Dave Mathews though? I haven't seen him on the list yet. - MRniceguy583

206 Mike Patton Mike Patton Michael Allan "Mike" Patton is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, film composer, producer, and actor, best known as the lead singer of the alternative metal band Faith No More.

Clearly most of this board is uneducated and used to traditional singers. Mike Patton of Faith No More and Mr. Bungle should be way up on the list, not just for vocal ability but his influence on rap metal that predated Rage Against the Machine and Limp Bizkit. He even sang Italian opera without a microphone with a full band. Most singers can't even hold a candle to him. And his discography of side projects could put most artists to shame. Look him up, you'll be amazed what this man is capable of.

Anybody who knows this person would assume this vocalist both evolutionary and revolutionary. None of the high numbered vocalist can close to Mike Patton's experimental vocals.

Mike Patton is one of the most versatile and amazing singers in all modern music. He not only has a 6.0 vocal range, which is the highest vocal range recorded out of ALL mainstream music, but his vocal styles have touched on everything from rapping to screaming, falsetto to growling. He can sing you to sleep just as easily as he can scare you to death. He has shared stages with the likes of Metallica and Guns n roses. He is easily one of the most unique singers to appear on this list.

I don't know much about vocals. But he has a big range of vocal. So when he sings in 6th octave vocal, it'd make a unique voice. Cause this voice is one of a kind. - zxm

His unique and beautiful voice is known as " Treasure of Asia". He should be banned from cover other singers songs. (jk) Cause every songs that he sang will automatically become his own unique songs. The man who sing with his soul. The man who is born to sing. Xiah Junsu

208 Bonnie Tyler Bonnie Tyler Bonnie Tyler is a Welsh singer. She is known for her distinctive husky voice, resulting from an operation to remove vocal nodules in the mid-1970s.

YOu only need to hear the first few seconds of a Bonnie song, and you know its her. Those big, incrediably raspy vocals make her truly unique, you just cant help but fall in love!

Of course Bonnie Tyler! She should be way up the top, her voice is definitely the most distinctive!

You've had a total eclipse of the brain if you don't vote for her!

209 Till Lindeman

He can kill you with his voice...

Or he can lull you to sleep..

The only voice, besides Freddie Mercury, that made me stop when I first head it a go "WOAH". I knew I was in for something special.

I'd recognize his voice right away even if he wasn't singing German

His voice is...perfect. Damn perfect

213 Jay Sean

Man his voice is incredible and so flawless,jay has a unique voice people...war,down,mars,where you are listen to these songs and you'll know :')

214 Lacey Sturm Lacey Sturm

Lacey Sturm as a really different voice its rasp with softness but still feeling the emotion, really matches along with the lyrics your really feeling what she felt when she wrote the song.

Lacey Sturm has a light, siren-like voice that captures you by the first note uttered out of her mouth. She can scream and it sounds like the utmost hypnotizing thing one will ever hear.

Lacey has got this quality in her voice that makes her sound hardcore yet sweet and the same time. If she isn't number one, she should at least be in the list.

215 Tiny Tim

So low, Tiny Tim has one of the most unique voices of all time!

What a strange and unusual voice!... I somewhat like it though.

His voice is strange but I like it;-)

219 Bono Bono Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".

Should be in the top 20 at the very least. One of the most recognizable and imitated singers of all time.

Instantly recognisable voice for all the right reasons. Unique. Should be higher on the list - Jiorl

220 Nick Carter Nick Carter Nickolas Gene "Nick" Carter is an American singer. He is best known as a member of the pop group the Backstreet Boys.

His Voice Is a Revolution in the music industry, no singer ever could sing and control his voice like him except Justin Timberlake, but nick is way better, all what nick needs is more Fame and Appreciation from people, beside Nick's incredible talent and awesome music, Nick Is Fine as heaven, and all Backstreet Boys fans know this, And I'm not a Girl, I'm a 15 year old Guy, and really like his personality and music and respect him other than any other artist. - darknessmaster909

Purest voice I've ever seen, he can make his voice very thin and smooth which suits his cool character, if he just became as successful as today's artists, his voice would be a revolution in music industry - darknessmaster909

Hottest ever singer way better than timberlake

Nick's got a powerful voice and an unique sound. (But I hate Justin's voice).
