The fact that this isn't Number 1 just shocks me. As much as I love Amy Lee, Freddie Mercury is just a legend. - DCfnaf
I think Amy Lee also has a unique voice, but there's no denying that Freddie Mercury belongs at 1.
He has to win this, no doubt.
Not really a rock or metal singer, but he is good. - micahisthebest

How can anyone say his voice is not unique? Sure, he may not have the most beautiful voice in the world, but you can't deny the fact that it is unique, he is known for that. He combines a raspy, high pitched voice, along with an unimitatable accent, to create a unique voice. I have not heard someone that sounds like him, and he does not sound like your typical pop punk guy. I don't find his voice annoying at all, like some people, Ariana Grande and Chris Brown are far more annoying singers.
I would put him number 1, but since there are more legendary singers, I will put him here.
He isn't that popular, but he has a unique voice. - micahisthebest
