Robert PlantUploaded by MontyPython
Robert Anthony Plant is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.
Robert Plant is the definition of unique. He sings in such a different style to everyone else. He sings up at the very top of his vocal range, and with insane sustain ability as shown in The Immigrant Song. He even sounds unique when doing a more generic style like in the beginning of Stairway (in which post-solo sings in his normal style), partially because he uses unique techniques like natural modulation from getting closer and further from the microphone. This makes it to where he always sounds different no matter what he is singing.
If you actually listened to his works, ranging from Led Zeppelin to his collaboration with Alison Krauss, you can actually see (or hear, really) that he has the screechy, emotional, and loud voice, essential to hard rock, and actually has this gentle, soothing, and well-toned voice, much of "conventional" singing voice. His vocal range is amazing and he is definitely not given enough credit for his versatile vocal ability.

Robert Plant easily belongs in the top three in this category. Remember, back in 1969 nobody had ever heard the high pitched primeval wail. Probably the most influential rock singer ever. God, how many painfully inferior imitators did Plant inspire. It's a long list. Extraordinary power and range, Plant is a giant among rock singers, and a true icon. - bobby
I thought this is the top ten most UNIQUE singing voice ever? If that's the case, Robert Plant should definitely be there. No one sings like him. Back in the seventies he was the number one singer in the world. And he could reach higher notes than most women can. Pure legend.
How is Chester higher than Plant? Bennington's voice is so random.. not unique at all.
You can already recognize Plant after the first song in a song. The fact that Bennington is higher than Plant here just shows that it's mostly voted by kids.
Greatest rock and roll singer of all time my personal pick would be christina aguilera she has a very versatile voice and why is adele on here she annoys me I hate adele she only has a deep voice
Nothing else compares to Led Zeppelin, they are the genres itself, as for Robert Plant, he is the voice of a rock music. What nowadays people refer as rock is meaningless unless it is sung by him.
His voice isn't very unique. He is my favorite singer. Because of his voice. Very thin and warm. But I won't say his voice is very unique. I actually like thin voice. - zxm
Cannot believe this... He should be in the 1st place, I mean, he has an incredible and unique voice, he's really awesome and his lyrics are really great. No one will ever beat him. NEVER.
It was a close one between Robert Plant and Freddie Mercury, but Robert's voice is very distinguishable. There is nobody else that sounds like Robert Plant. Mercury a close second.
This list is an absolute joke. The singer of the best rock band in the history of man. His vocals tried to be imitated but couldn't be replicated.
WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? Number 8? Really? Have you ever listen to his voice this guy is more than number1 he is legend
An unique, powerful and awesome voice for the singer of the best band ever!
Why he is not higher in this list, he is just a legend...
LED ZEPPELIN for ever!
Robert Plant's voice is a musical instrument that only he can play, and boy does he play it! He belongs much higher up on this list.
The fact that Chester Bennington and Kurt Cobain are higher than Plant just shows that most voters here are younger than 14.
Everyone knows his voice.
Even if they're not familiar with LZ, they're like "Oh, I know this guy! I recognize led zeppelin. " - Mowglijungle14
He's amazing but my vote goes to kurt. He's better than kurt but kurt voice was unique
Amazing! Just listen to Immigrant Song or Black Dog and you'll realize how unique his singing voice is.
He is the man with ten different singing voices... The most unique vocalist of all time... Daylight second..
Can anyone scream like a god in the Immigrant Song? He can summon all the animals in the ocean with that!
This list is a joke. What is robert plant doing on 13? I haven't heard these korean people and this is sick.
When Robert Plant comes on the radio, whether with the yardbirds, or post Zeppelin you know it's him.
He has a unique voice he should be on the top ten list
This has to go to Robert Plant people can pull of Freddy just a bit but Robert Plant is just crazy.
