Top Ten Rock and Roll Songs With the Greatest ScreamsBeatlesboy9 I'm talking about either like a scream in the intro or somewhere else in the song. Some are also in the chorus. I may as well be possibly biased to put the Doors and Led Zeppelin Multiple Times just because of Jim and Robert's honest raw rock voices.
The Top Ten
THE scream. Raw, powerful, emotional. You know it when you hear it. A lot of other good ones out there, but this one is the gold standard.
Greatest rock band ever, often overlooked, but once introduced to the Who, you never look back.
Definitely the best rock scream but many others are close.
This is THE rock scream.V 6 Comments
So near-impossible to pull off that even Freddie Mercury botched it when Queen covered it in concerts. - truckturner
Obviously kickin in after a high quality, trippy masterpiece. It builds up to the scream the seconds before, but still comes outta nowhere. Awesome!
Jim's voice never sounded better. - PetSounds
Ian Gillan can physically scream at a higher level and control his voice better than any other singer on the planet this deserves to be number 1! - STLRams1
Ian Gillan screams for about 2 minutes towards the end (after 8:00). He is a master - his screams never disappoint. Maybe this anti-war song should be at #1. - Metal_Treasure
There are none. None more loud...
One of my favourite vocal performances ever! Nobody can imitate these screams. - Userguy44
John let the throat here
The first heavy metal song! It still sounds fresh and vitale and McCartney sounds phenominal.
One of the greatest and most emotional screams - it's in the second half of the song, just before the long guitar outro (go to 4:05). The scream is long, powerful and breathtaking. Perfectly performed. - Metal_Treasure
The best intro scream I know (0:20). If you like screams, don't miss this one - it's long, beautiful, melodic, powerful and perfectly performed. - Metal_Treasure
One of the best screams from the 70s (1971), comparable to Ian Gillan's screams. It's in the intro. David Byron did a great job. - Metal_Treasure
Awesome and powerful intro scream. This song is an ELO cover.
ELO - Electric Light Orchestra, a 70s band. - Metal_Treasure
Ian Gillan again - many times in this song, some of the screams are at the beginning (after 1:00). Very powerful, extremely well controlled and overall, amazing screams. He's really a master. - Metal_Treasure
This So real Scream power
I'm afraid there are NO screams in this song... - Metal_Treasure
Axl rose has multiple screams all of them proving that he should be in the top ten.
BOTH of Plant's screams in this song are better than his ones in WLL and IS
David Byron again - 4:50. - Metal_Treasure
Better than The Who.You know the scream anywhere.THE SCREAM.
Listen to the chorus, especially the last one in the song, and you'll understand
In Bite The Bullet off the Gillan album Future Shock he unleashes a scream that rivals that of Child In Time! - STLRams1
So much power!
"I am the Lizard King, I can do anything"
Brian Johnson screams the whole song and its not obnoxious... plus I dig the motivational lyrics on making a comeback.
Because I think so! lol
I only listen to this version because of the screaming. Was my first song when I heard him screaming. - zxm
