403 Keith Sweat Keith Sweat

He has a very recognizable voice. Some of his songs are harder to sing for other artists because of his tone. Very different.

404 Jello Biafra
405 David Byrne

David Byrne has one of the most distinctive singing voices!

406 Geoff Tate Geoff Tate Geoff Tate is a German-born American singer and musician who rose to fame in the 1980s with the progressive metal band Queensrÿche.

Lead singer for Queensryche - Silent Lucidity anyone? - also check out Empire, Jet City Woman, Is There Anybody Listening, Best I Can, Home Again, Real World.

The man has one of the most incredible ranges of any singer I've every heard. His voice is also extremely distinctive and has a haunting quality that that makes you feel the emotions of the songs he is singing on a seep visceral level.

Operation Mindcrime was the metal "The Wall" of the 80's. My personal favorite singer. Listen to " I Dream In Infrared". Unique emotion.

407 Huddie William Leadbelly Ledbetter

His voice is not the best but it's very powerful for a blues/folk singer and the songs he sings go well with his voice

409 Tim Buckley Tim Buckley Timothy Charles "Tim" Buckley III (February 14, 1947 – June 29, 1975) was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. His music and style changed considerably through the years; he began his career based in folk music, but his subsequent albums incorporated jazz, psychedelia, funk, soul, avant-garde more.

Well, merely the fact that he's the father of Jeff means a lot to me. But he had a beatiful voice on his own. Just listen to "Once I was" or "Phantasmagoria in Two". There's something outlandish about his voice.

410 Champ Lui-pio

he's the only male, band vocalist I know who has that very cold voice and has the abilities to moderate it - jully

411 Tom Petty Tom Petty Thomas Earl "Tom" Petty is an American musician, singer, songwriter, multi instrumentalist and record producer.

Seriously, he's behind Jello Biafra and Keith Sweat?

The king of alternative what? I'm familiar with Cobain and Corgan, I'm not familiar with the man you say is the king. I would say the king of alternative is Michael Stipe myself...

The king of alternative. So many people copied his voice Including Kurt Cobain and Billy Corgan.

414 Peter Ivers
415 Cheb Mami
416 Kristoffer Rygg

A bit obscure, but I've never heard anyone with a voice like his. It has a unique tone, and he does everything from airy falsetto to soothing baritone, epic metal singing to harsh screaming and the kind of weird stuff Mike Patton usually does (also on this list). Not well known, but I'd say he's arguably the best singer I've ever heard

417 Elliott Yamin
418 Bianca Ryan
419 Shannon Hoon

His voice is simply unique - rocknrolldude

If you haven't heard this man sing then you are missing out on one of the most deep, velvety, gritty, melodic voices on the planet. His voice has been described as velvet and sandpaper, and it's a very accurate description. Yet it's so melodic and full it just fills you up from head to toe. You BELIEVE every line. It's comforting yet disturbing, romantic and sensual yet haunting.. This man has it all and he turns any cover song he does into his own masterpiece. Just look up Mark Lanegan's version of the song "I'll Take Care Of You" from the album of the same name. If that doesn't turn you inside out, then you must be dead and I can't help you!
