Most Unique Singing Voices
The Contenders: Page 2
Omg this creature has a magical voice.
America was winning the cold war arms race until canada got geddy lee. His voice after inhaling a live chicken and breathing helium was announced as the ultimate doomsday weapon. A weapon of this magnitude could have knocked japan off the face of the earth and into a land of magical flying pink ponies. BEWARE of Geddy Lee's beautiful voice!
Like it or not, definitely the most unique voice. He is one of the few singers whose voice is unmistakable, along with Cobain and a couple of others. I honestly can say I find his voice a bit annoying but I respect his/and Rush's refusal to commercialize. No Pepsi products, no Apple promotion, just high quality musicians and lyrical genius
No matter how many comparisons the man's voice has had to unpleasant things over the years, you cannot deny the unique sonic quality and technical prowess he possesses. Personally, I never found Geddy's voice annoying. Here he is, almost 40 (! ) years later, and still sounds good. Even someone like Sting (who's also been around almost 40 years) has ruined his voice. Geddy is #1.
Kinda naturally high pitched. Maybe too thin. - zxmV 21 Comments
I can always pick out Kyuhyun's voice in all of Super Junior's songs. In my opinion, he is one of their three best singers, and I don't think anyone would disagree with that. His voice is very unique and to be honest, I think he was the reason I first started to like Super Junior's music.
My favorite male Asian voice! So unique that I always recognize him among a crowd of singers. Really hope to see his solo album someday
He's my favorite band member from Super Junior! His voice is very unique apart from the rest of the band members. He's recognizable as well. His voice is very smooth and it can go strong and it just melts you when you hear it. It's very soft as well and he does have talent.
God sake, who let the 12 year old girls on here! Bruce Dickinson, Rob Halford, Ronnie James Dio, Ozzy Osbourne, Ian Gillan are the people who should be on this list, not some kpop idiots who are only famous due to their looks (by the way, they all look like girls)V 60 Comments
She is the greatest female power singer of all time! And even in her 60s she is still fantastic! Her range is unreal, her passion is over the top and way out there!
There no voice that sounds like hers.
The best female singer. Beyonce who?
What a voice it sounds like a Barracuca! Love it
Layne Staley/God with a mic - his vocal style is one of the most copied in rock, next to Kurt Cobain. What makes Layne so special though, is that no one could sing as powerful as his chest range. All those wannabes could do is copy his snarls and twang but no one could really sing as powerful as Layne. And he could sing with that intensity and power... live! You only see that type of talent once in a lifetime.
To me, he's the most underrated vocalists of our time, next is Mike Patton. You can tell by his 24th spot in here that his talents are not given due credit. Kids today may not be aware of this, but a lost of vocalists (formed after the Seattle era) are trying to sound like Layne.
His voice was the most unique, beautiful, soulful voice ever. I have never listened to another singer who has touched my very being the same way he has. I am so thankful I had the chance to know him through his music but so sad it was his demons that brought out that surreal beautiful voice that would reach down and touch your soul. Absolute best voice ever.
Very recognizable vocalist. You couldn't resist turning up the radio even if you tried. Just the urgency combined with the raw emotions in his voice alone made you stop and listen to what he was singing. He gave everything his all in his performances. R.I.P. layne Thomas Staley, from my side of Washington to yours.
Thank you layne, you don't know how many people you change, love you.V 58 Comments
I've always loved Sara's beautiful voice. She has one of the most unique soprano voices I've ever heard. I have all of her albums and love every one. She is my favorite female artist of any I've ever heard. Plus she is down right beautiful. Donald Braswell is my favorite tenor, in fact, to me, he is the greatest male performing artist of today. Like Sara, he has a beautiful unique voice and the most handsome man I've ever seen. I would love to see these two do a duet together. What great sounds that would make plus both such delicious eye candy.
Sarah Brightman has the most angelic voice the believe I have ever heard. She is just so amazing. I could listen to her forever. Her voice is unique and unmatched by any other person alive!
There's no one like you. On of her songs that fits her pretty well. Her voice is so beautiful and unique, there will never be anyone like her ever again. Why? Because her voice is so angelic and it touches everyone when she starts to sing
Listen to her singing "con te partiro" with Andrea Bocelli and you can feel the lyricsV 10 Comments
I think that some of the people here misunderstand the title of this list. Sure, Radiohead are a well known band (whom are great), but Thom Yorke actually has a unique voice, like Bjork or Morrissey: a voice that if you here it anywhere you would recognise it. Madonna though (who is on this list) while a good singer to me doesn't have that of a unique voice. I feel that her voice is similar to artists such as Kylie Minogue. Thom Yorke, though has a unique voice. End of Story - Jiorl
Amazing experience, no matter how depressing most of the lyrics are. Thom really transposes into a world of feelings through metaphors and soft, suggestive voice, and this is what real artists are supposed to deliver.
His voice is touching and that makes me cry when I listen to Radiohead. He is singing and sharing his emotions in his own unique special manner.
Listen to "How To Disappear Completely" "House of Cards" "Pyramid Song"
How is this legend below those crappy kpop trashV 5 Comments
His voice is just amazing no one else sings like him at all! HIS VOICE IS SO AMAZING BEAUTIFUL AND UNIQUE
So unique and not to everyone's taste, but carries an impact whether loud or quiet. Amazing.
Glad billy is in the top 10 his voice is instantly recognizable and you can tell he puts his soul into his singing
How is he at 43!? He has such a unique and amazing singing voice! - JeffttV 7 Comments
No one sings like Josh so I'd say his voice is unique as I'd recognize a song of his anywhere! Just beautiful! - anetnut
Josh's voice makes me feel relaxed, excited, happy, joyful, comfortable, loved, protected, calm, peaceful, content, comforted, brave, confident, beautiful, delighted, empowered, cheerful, energized, grateful, healed, euphoric, marvelous, pacified, pleased, reassured, replenished, relieved, restored, soothed, secure, and strengthened all at once. - fuzzleteala
He is original with his voice and his songs are so different from other artist's songs. He continually sings great and can reach notes other singers cannot. He also is a talented piano player,
Distinct voice, kind of voice you'd recognized anywhere. You might be walked somewhere and hear this song and thought, "hey, this is Josh Groban singing"V 14 Comments
He is unique. Never seen any similar voice. Would like to be able sing like him
I always recognize JON Bon Jovi's voice... He has the most unique, no question. He definitely gives you the creeps.
Jon Bon Jovi has the most unique and best voice in the business. No one else sounds like him. All the new stuff sounds the same! - vadnj0
Wait. A band isn't a voice lol - ExplosivePantherV 5 Comments
If you hear Ozzy, you know who's singing straight away. I've never even heard of Rydian anyway! - julieannecrabb
People must not read what this list is about. Unique voice. Ozzy may not have the Best Technical voice. But sure as hell has one of the most unique voice and should be in the top 5 for sure
As far as recognizable goes, he's number 1 - madcowsarecrazy
Ok, so Ozzy is not the best technical singer in this list. He would have never made it through a 1981 concert in Lexington Ky without a bottle of Chloroseptic. But it cannot be denied that Tony Iommi and the Great and Powerful Oz inspired every metal song you've ever come to love. Black Sabbath created metal as we know it.V 12 Comments
Beautiful powerful emotional voice
Jared's voice is incredibly beautiful and unique. His voice makes me feel like I'm soaring through the sky and it touches a part of me that I had no idea that existed. When I listen to him sing, I feel like no one can touch me and it truely makes me feel like I can conquer anything I set my heart to. He's created this new world for us, all you have to do is believe and you'll fall into the right path.
Jared has the unique voice indeed! - Myhapypyha
Jared has a great voice. He reaches hight tones and his velvety voice makes his fans shiver! He does a great songwriting with emotional and catching lyrics! He is the most wonderful singer I have ever heard in my life! Love his voice and his charisma!
It's weird I usually don't like it when people scream/yell while singing but it really suits him and the bandV 93 Comments
For years I have loved Anthony Kiedis more than any other singer in the world. Next, it was Zack de la Rocha. It then went to Maynard James Keenan. It has finally been between Serj Tankian and Jonathan Davis. Anthony and Serj definitely have unique voices, whereas Zack's and Maynard's, although still very talented, aren't as unique to fit the bill. Serj's voice has this beauty to it. Jonathan's has the same beauty element, however it also has much more. His voice, I feel, can match almost anyone elses in history. His voice on the lesser known tracks had this melodic essence to it that set it apart and made it glorious. Then there are the tracks where he screams and growls. There have been other screamers, there have been other growlers, but none, EVER, have had the complexity and texture to Jonathan's. Twist? No one matches it. Freak On A Leash's breakdown? Few can match it. And so far no one has incorporated his screaming style into their own music. The continuous, "mainstream" ...more
What! There ain't nobody who has a more trademark voice. No other singer can I differentiate from all others. You can't describe it other than a voice that can go from a death growl to a rap to a sing to this strange but awesome half rap. He is number 1 followed by Serj Tankian then Matt Shadows then Maynard James Keenan then Corey from Slipknot then Chester from Linkin Park
This man performs a variety of techniques seemingly effortlessly, and at times doesn't even sound human (there was a reason he was chosen to be the singing voice of Lestat- the only good thing about that film). He has one of the largest range of octaves I've ever heard in a male. He has totally revolutionized scat, death screams, and clean vocal techniques. His technique is only eclipsed by the range of emotional responses he evokes in his listeners.
Just...yesV 10 Comments
How is he not even on the first page? This man brought a new era of voice quality in music and you shun him for his genre choice? This is a list of the most UNIQUE voices. Listen to Holy Diver, Rainbow in the Dark, Don't Talk to Strangers, and Rock n Roll Children, and tell me that voice is not only the best to ever conquer metal, but one the most unique to ever hit the face of the earth. RIP RJD
He should be at least top 5, one of the most unique voices to ever grace this earth. Honestly what the hell is wrong with these people on this list, most people compared to him sound like crap, plain and simple
Only if more of the voters had heard his songs, he'd be among the top. I have listened to all the rest in top 10 (similar to pretty much everyone). But I just skipped it to come and find Dio.
Was fortunate enough to see the Angry Elf live. When metal icons like Black Sabbath ask you to fill in, you don't suck. Rest well, RJD. Know you're a hero in my eyes...no, wait, ears.V 5 Comments
Eunhyuk has a very... Different voice. You can hear a different tone than others. But different doesn't mean bad! He has a great voice actually! And he makes Super Junior sound great with it too! He also has one of those sexy voices and it is really comforting too. - cloud3424
The best rapper I have ever seen in my whole life
He got a lot of talent on rap and sing and a lot I wish that he will win
Unique sound, if doing rep voice would be very awesomeV 13 Comments
Lets just call her the voice. Lot of people can imitate her but very few have the range or the control to be able to
Transition through a note the way Whitney can. Also what the hell is she doing down here at 60.?
Surely we will never hear any voice even near hers again..
What the heck is whitney doing in #37? Avirl above Whitney? WOW.. I mean seriously Whitney sounds like an angel when she sings. Not to mention remember the Star Spangled Banner? She sang that and it sounded absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I love her voice, And she can do a beautiful ballad anytime like "I Will Always Love You."
Her voice is bad even if she alive, so don't get your hopes up dearV 11 Comments
Are you crazy.
at least in the top 5
Find 1 singer that has a voice just like Christina's
No one can do that!
Her voice is so unique... Many people quickly distuinguish her voice from others... Best! - bleakiiee
80? Please, listen at "Hurt", "You lost me" or "Fighter" and tell me if her is the most unique singing voice. Yes, she is
Her voice is so uniqueV 16 Comments
Florence Welch rocks. Her voice is so warm, more deep, and has an amazing energy.
The most amazing singer of her generation. Better than Adele. Her voice is so hauntingly fantastic.
No question about flo's voice being unique. What a voice... and an exceptional vocal range!
Extremely rare sounding voice. She has such energy and passion, by listening to ONE song youll be convinced.V 4 Comments
Unique? HaH! Try mind boggling, from another planet incredible, Heaven is missing one of its angels, drop dead, blow your socks off beautiful... Yeah, those come close to adequately describing the vocals of Miss Jacqueline Marie Evancho.
Routinely brings tears to the eyes of all listeners.. Her waveform patterns are unlike any other singer.. Her voice is unique.. It has been said that her voice is the only thing that dulls the pain of some chronic sufferers..
One of the few singers who can really sing "The Star Spangled Banner" properly, on-key, with all the words, and without lip-synching. I'd say that's unique.
Listen to anything from Dream with MeV 25 Comments
No matter how sad or depressed I am. Madonna always gets me through it. I adore her and her voice is very distinct you can always tell it's her
This is probably the WORST choice on this list. She is NOT a singer and pretty much every pop girl group has at least one girl with this kind of voice.
Madonna had style and swagger, but she was never a singer.
There is a warmth to Madonna's voice. It sounds like a mother singing to you.
I know her voice when I hear it and it makes me feel secure and hopeful.
Madonna is the best female artist in my time! She is literally a part of my soul!V 5 Comments
