Top 10 Best Rock Singers of 2016

Well 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.

Why exactly are you so controlling over your lists? The purpose of TheTopTens is for people to share their opinions, and you make it practically impossible with all these strict rules that don't make sense.
Paul is still an extremely talented singer, one of the best in 2016, just because he's been around for a long time doesn't mean he isn't one of the best. Metal is officially a subgenre of rock, you can say it's not all you want, but if you research, you'll find yourself to be wrong. You can't just tell people "Don't add this guy because I think..." This is not about you, it's about the community. I mean I make a lot of lists, and sometimes my favorites get moved out of the top 10, I will make a case for it, but I won't tell people not to vote or add certain items. Doing so just holds the community back. - ryanrimmel

Does not matter how old he gets- as long as he has that songbook of his to draw from, he is the best that ever was, and the best that ever will be.

Professional Longevity, musicianship, songwriting and that unmistakable voice that has launched the careers of...well...everyone!
