Top 10 Best Rock Singers of 2016Well only modern rock singers for this list and no classic rock singers. You might see previous entries but that's OK cause I really need to listen to more modern rock bands. You can suggest singers but here are the limitationes. 1.Singer must've sang from a rock band or currently does. 2. Said singer is not from a Metal band. Lastly 3. Said singer must have talent to be on this list. Chad Kroger as well as the main singer from Linkin Park will not be on this list. Also don't submit singers from Pop music. But there will be some new entries so there's that. Punk rock singers, Hard rock singers, Soft rock singers, Alternative rock singers, and Indie Rock singers are allowed. But not metal or heavy metal singers. Even if Metal is a sub genre of rock they just don't sound the same. Also Chris Cooper from Skillet will not be on this list cause Skillet was originally metal so there's that. Also Ivan L.Moody will not be on this list.
The Top Ten
Shim's voice is great singing loud, screaming, at a low whisper and everything in between. He "feels" every word, every note. I've heard tons of singers in my 52 years and while each has their own style and there are plenty that I like to listen to, there is something about his voice that just makes you want to listen. Lyrically his talent is amazing. His songs convey emotion and tell a story, not just a rhyme or whatever lyrics match the tune. He is one of the best at his craft and his music is underrated in my opinion.
I've seen Sick Puppies twice. After working in music for over ten years, and after attending about a hundred concerts, I can honestly say that Shimon is such a poignantly gifted singer that just when you've reached the frayed and tattered edges of your humanity, he finds the strings and weaves a masterpiece out of them. His voice is sonically existential; it takes you on a journey of the soul.
Shim's music doesn't just entertain you, it helps you to feel the emotions, the passion, the core of this fabulous musician! Can't wait for new music from him!
He's voice is awesome, he worked hardly many years and he deserves reward. He wasn't famous and now I'm so much happy for Shim!V 37 Comments
He has a very distinct voice that just brings a whole new atmosphere to rock music. It's great.
His vocals are just awesome and leave the mark wherever he sings!
He's my fave rock singer. I just love the sound of his voice. He'd be #1 on my list!
Adam's voice is all around amazing. He brings a lot of emotion, power, yet a soft side to his voice.. Which I love so much. Saint Asonia and Three Days Grace is amazing!V 4 Comments
Always had a young voice and lots of energy for sure.
Best singer on this list by far. This is coming from a die hard 3DG fan. Nothing beats Shaun's voice live.V 3 Comments
Tyler and his band are way underrated. Their enthusiasm and style are amazing and can hold their own with intimate concerts or full blown stadiums. Relating to each listener at any venue.
You seem to be very demanding. You must really hate creativity and opinions, don't you? Saying no metal or pop singers is basically preventing 1/4 of the members from voting for it. Guess what? I think Ginter us a terrible vocalist. He used to be good, but now he's horrible. Should I prevent you from adding him to the list because I don't agree with you?
So I added some metal and pop singers. Have a nice day. - Alpha101
You have made the requirements far too narrow for this list.
Your rules are so strict, that actually nobody can even be nominated.
Please try again.
The Voice is absolutely captivating!
Myles is hands down number one on this list. Not only does he have the greatest range, control and soul but also the best guitarist of these singers listed. I encourage you to listen to a live recording of Myles either in Alter Bridge or with Slash. He is flawless! Slash and Mark Tremonti also called him the best guitarist in their respective bands.
Kennedy should be in top 5 for sureV 1 Comment
While I'm not a fan of his individual works, he did pretty good as a guest in one of Good Charlotte's songs.
Awesome voice! From screams to mellow, this guy is always right on!
Amazing signer from power ballad to metal core scream.V 1 Comment
Papa is a metal singer, and I don't care. Metal is a subgenre of rock, and papa has one of the best voices out thers - ryanrimmel
