Top Ten Rock and Roll Songs With the Greatest Screams

Beatlesboy9
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

1 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

Definitely the best rock scream but many others are close.

You immediately know this song if you listen to it. - Pony

Not very long but really cool scream. - Metal_Treasure

2 When the Music's Over - The Doors

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

Blood curdling

3 Child In Time - Deep Purple

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...

4 Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin
5 Revolution - The Beatles

John let the throat here

6 Helter Skelter - The Beatles

The first heavy metal song! It still sounds fresh and vitale and McCartney sounds phenominal.

7 Mysteria - Edguy

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

8 Fiddler On the Green - Demons & Wizards

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

9 Piece of My Heart - Big Brother and the Holding Company
10 Bird of Prey - Uriah Heep

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

The Contenders

11 Don't Bring Me Down - Northern Kings

Awesome and powerful intro scream. This song is an ELO cover.
ELO - Electric Light Orchestra, a 70s band. - Metal_Treasure

12 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin
13 Hard Lovin' Man - Deep Purple

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

14 Careful With That Axe Eugene - Pink Floyd
15 Light My Fire - The Doors
16 Black Dog - Led Zeppelin
17 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones

I'm afraid there are NO screams in this song... - Metal_Treasure

18 Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses

Axl rose has multiple screams all of them proving that he should be in the top ten.

19 Drain You - Nirvana

This So real Scream power

20 July Morning - Uriah Heep

David Byron again - 4:50. - Metal_Treasure
