41 Shirley Bassey Shirley Bassey

Amongst a sea full of POP Sopranos who dance their way through a number, Shirley Bassey stands out as a combo Alto/Mezzo Pitched Vocalist with powerful belting capabilities who can simply walk up to a microphone, and SING! Those in the audience are mesmerized as Bassey's body, arm, and hand movements are at one with her tremendous vocal ability and it brings each performance to another level. She IS a very unique performer!

This is really one of the unique voices! Along with Sarah Vaughan and Ella Fitzgerald, you can't forget this voice.

If you think about it, NOBODY sounds like Rihanna. Y'all are sleeping on her. She's not the greatest singer every, but definitely unique.

She's getting better and better with each song! Anyone who's listening to her from earlier period can easily detect it! She's become a strong and amazing vocalist! Her voice is smooth, edgy & unique!

She sounds different from the rest.

80? You're joking. Rihanna is one of the most unique voices of the laat 15 years, whether she's powerful or not

44 Morten Harket Morten Harket Morten Harket is a Norwegian musician, best known as the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, which released ten studio albums and topped the charts internationally after their breakthrough hit "Take on Me" in 1985.

The singer who is in the Guinness Book of records for the uniqueness of the voices five octaves is not in the top five?! What kind of vote?

Although I prefer his songs as an A-ha member, I agree that his voice is deep and eerie

45 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.

I cannot believe Maynard James Keenan is #60 on here! I'm sorry, but I've heard plenty of voices like Avril Lavigne's voice. And Britney Spears? Take out the highly edited/computerized crap and what do you have left? I have never heard a voice like Maynard's. Not ever!

Shouldn't have to scroll this far to see this name, underrated band in-general, overrated by the bands fans, definitely one of the most original sounding band of all time in all ways.

He is the best singer and has such a unique and powerful voice... Tool is amazing - Okami

Come on, nobody tops his vocals with Tool, and A Perfect Circle

This is insulting Gee should be right at the top! Come on guys! His voice is just so amazing words can't describe how much I love his voice. It's so pure and I could listen to it wherever, whenever and forever. He has such a recognizable voice and I could pick it out even if he was just humming in the background, this man is truly amazing and bonus sexy too!
Proud Member Of the MCRmy

First thing, why is Gee only at 35!?! His voice is amazing. I could literally listen to it all day, everyday. I could pick his voice from anywhere, no matter what. He has the most recognizable voice I have ever heard. Gerard Way is absolutely phenomenal. He should be in at least top 10. My Chemical Romance is my favourite band of all time, and always will be.

ONLY 35!?!? Nowadays you can't pick out who is who out of all of these new rock bands. I've always been able to pick out Gerard's voice! Now, My Chemical Romance is my favorite band but it is because of this fact. Gerard's voice is phenomenal and he should be in at least the top 15, but what do I know?

Ok
1. SO SOME RANDOM JAPANESE GUYS AND THE GUY WHO PLAYS JOKER BEAT GEE? THESE PEOPLE R IDIOTS.

48 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.

You don't even need music and you can know it's the mighty table himself, all you have to do is hear a "YEAH". For me the way that makes him unique is his style for example "deep down inside I feel the scream-AH"

The best simply for his rasp and power he processed in his heyday of singing and very few can duplicate it. Even in 2016 he has picked his singing back to a higher level that reminds me of his prime vocal years in the load era (1996).

WHAT! How is he down hear? You people are crasy this man is moses in metal form

No one can replicate the agonizing, desprate screams from songs like ride the lightning

49 Bruce Dickinson Bruce Dickinson Paul Bruce Dickinson, known professionally as Bruce Dickinson, is an English musician, airline pilot, and broadcaster. He is most well known for being the lead singer in heavy metal band Iron Maiden and his solo career.

come on people, Patrick Stump is ahead of Dickinson? Honestly just listen to Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast, Piece of Mind, Powerslave, Somewhere in Time, Seventh Son of a Seventh Son and A Matter of Life and death. Any song from these albums, you will be amazed

Best singer in the world, once again people have preconcepts about iron maiden, of all of this singers, Bruce is the only one NO ONE can imitate, the other ones I've seem people singing just like them

Seen them 4 times in Atlanta on last tour... Please he blows 95% of all singers AWAY I'm 49 and have good an eye for talent and Bruce is in top 2 only to Rob Halford... Good company

This sucks! 71! It's a joke... It must be in the top 10!

50 Neil Young Neil Young Neil Percival Young is a Canadian singer-songwriter and musician, producer, director and screenwriter.

This list is a joke Neil has to be higher, one of the most beautiful and unique voices I've ever heard. He should be first on this list

As far as being unique, Neil is definitely top ten. I can name several people that sound like almost everyone who is ahead of him on this list. I can't think of one person that sounds like Neil Young.

Ya what's up with this?!? Neil Young is the most unique and amazing voice on planet Earth. Period. No wait, maybe Josh Groban is the most amazing, but he is by far the most unique. Even though Jimmy Fallon can do an incredible imitation.

His vocals are the clearest I've ever heard, you never need to read the lryics with a neil young song - RecklessGreed

51 Regina Spektor Regina Spektor

Her style is so unique, I could recognize any of her songs in a heart beat

She has an amazing voice to match an amazing girl! She inspired so many other singers that to this day many people try to copy her style, but she is the only good one! She should be number 1!

Her voice is so amazing and unique! Discovered her a little while ago but know would recognize her voice anywhere

Literally every time I hear a Spektor song, I immediately imagine her, whether I know the song or not.

53 Amy Winehouse Amy Winehouse Amy Jade Winehouse was an English singer and songwriter known for her deep expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul, rhythm and blues, and jazz.

Her voice is very unique I must say. There is no one else in the world who has a voice like her. Once you here her for the first time and you her her for the second time you will automatically know it's her voice. Sad she died though rest in peace

I was just scrolling down the entire list looking for her name. Her voice was amazing. Amy will be missed.

No 568. A travesty. I seriously feel like crying. Justin Beiber's voice is considered more unique than Amy Winehouse's? What's the world coming to? I saw this list and immediately thought Amy. Then she wasn't in the top ten. Then top hundred. 568. Seriously? - thaxception

Are you kidding me no. 54 she was the most talented singer of the decade. She had on of the most unique voice, I was expecting her to be in the top 10 if not the top 5

54 Rob Halford Rob Halford Robert John Arthur "Rob" Halford is an English singer and songwriter, who is best known as the lead vocalist for the Grammy Award-winning heavy metal band Judas Priest and famed for his powerful wide ranging operatic voice.

Hey, ever listened to Painkiller, Dreamer Deceiver, Victim of Changes, Resurrection... Etc. Etc.? People who voted for Michael Jackson, Sarah Brightman, Britney Spears and the rest of those pop singers up there, who has never possessed any great vocal quality at all and got popular through lyrics and dance routines (excepting MJ perhaps), you really don't know what the term "Unique Voice" means. COME ON, Rob Halford had a 6 octave vocal range and still has over 4 and a half octave at the age of 60+! He can sing, he can scream, he can growl, he can hit the extreme highest note[painkiller, Resurrection etc. ] could hit extremely dark low notes[Dreamer Deceiver, Dying to meet you etc. ], could hit all kinds of note in one song with strong vibrato [e.G. victim of Changes, Dreamer Deceiver] and people actually gives the number one position to someone else?! Rob Halford had, has and will always have the most unique voice in music history. Anybody thinking otherwise... Please please just ...more

Since you can't change the twisted minds of the pop music sheep, I'll take this opportunity to salute one of my top three vocalists...ever. I first heard this guy in 1976 " Sinner" and have been a fan ever since.

In the top 3 for sure.

HE IS THE GREATEST VOCALIST ON ANY GENRE OF MUSIC

55 Pink Pink Alecia Beth Moore known professionally as P!NK, is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actress.

Her voice is raspy.. With a hint of attitude and I don't really care when she sings up tempo songs.. When she gets soulful with the rasp and a beautiful ranges.. It's sad she is way down here at 75 people she has one hell of a voice.. And if you can't recognize her from two words.. You've got some major problems

Has a deep smoky something to it, that's catchy and true at the same time. She all time trumps Swift come on guys. She may not be all that popular anymore but she is pretty good, better than others I can say. - Papergirl

Okay Pink should be in the top ten.
Because a lot of people have tried to sing like her, but let's face it there is only one Pink.

She is one of my least favorite singers, but I'll admit that you can instantly recognize one of her songs.

Lady gaga has a very strong voice that is capable of doing many things. I would at least expect her to be in the top5. She has really changed the meaning of music and has evolved it to something stronger. Like art. I love you gaga! Monster for life

Lady gaga has a unique style in music that's nobody make it from before and lady gaga have a lot of fan that's support her I wish the luck for her

59 David Archuleta

Not enough people know his voice for him to be this high. I haven't seen Mick Jagger, Tom Petty, Bob Seger, John Fogerty, or Rod Stewart yet, all of whom, along with many others, have a much more recognizable voice than Archuleta? Is that his name? I don't even recognize his name, much less his voice.

No one sounds like David, his voice is unique and amazing. Listen to his Live Performances, be careful you just may turn into a fangirl/guy unwillingly and there's no turning back.

The strongest voice is not always the most unique one. So, I definitely think that all the singers that are above David in that list have stronger voices than him, but his voice is without a doupt the most unique.

60 James Blunt James Blunt

Clearly the most unique voice ever.

I don't understand why he isn't up with the most unique people. He obviously has an incpredible voice that should be more listend to. If you listen to more than just "You're Beautiful", then you should know what I'm talking about. Now matter what song he sings, the very second you hear the first word of the song, you know that it is him, and that it is unique.
