Obviously Freddy Mercury, Michael Jackson or Robert Plant would be top 5 on best singing voices, but this is coolest. MJ and Freddy had amazing voices but they both did pop-rock (mixed with other genres but those were their mains) which can be annoying and Plant just had something about his voice that can get obnoxious after a few hours; not to mention they all had a whiny quality which was cool but tiring. This is coolest artists of all time not best.
Unique-ness, and cool-ness, that's it. Oh, and it has to be a voice you could listen to all day, I don't know a single word for that, I guess maybe awesomeness... Any way, who cares. (Sorry I keep adding "ness" to every word).
1 Jackie Evancho
Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .
Most beautiful voice ever.
She totally owns it - nobody else even approaches the threshold of her greatness.
Buttery smooth, perfect pitch, and wide classical range complete with gracefully nuanced vocals that are deliciously behind the beat...
Cool and refreshing, like water from a mountain spring. - BobG

2 David Gilmour
David Jon Gilmour is an English singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, and record producer. He joined the progressive rock band Pink Floyd as guitarist and co-lead vocalist in 1968.
Something in that voice, perfect mix of course, vocal range, and deep-softness.

3 Kurt Cobain
Kurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1987, he started the grunge band Nirvana, which became one of the most successful bands ever. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his ...read more.
He didn't have great range, but what he did have was a course/soft sarcastic voice with a great ability to change from a yelling chorus to a soft verse that a lot of people can't pull off (If you can manage to find their older stuff, (before bleach) then Kurt sounds a little like Paul McCarney when he did Helter Skelter). I might be a little partial b/c I'm from Seattle, so vote vote vote.

6 Roger Waters
George Roger Waters, is an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. He was mostly known for the secondary lead vocals and bassist of Pink Floyd .
Almost didn't put this on here because some of his songs, if you listen to full course albums, his voice gets annoying. But 5/6 of his music is very interesting, unique, and cool. A tone of either being lost in pleasure or being lost and alone.

8 Eddie Vedder
Eddie Vedder is an American musician, singer and songwriter best known as a member of the rock band Pearl Jam, with whom he performs lead vocals and is one of three guitarists.
Vedder probably has a better quality and abilitie in his voice then Cobain and Gilmour (and he sounds kinda like a cross between the two) or even maybe better then the whole list, but his style can get boring after a while, he seems to only do hard/fast and deep/slow/soft or both in one song, he doesn't change to much on each album (which is nice b/c you at least have assurance on how it will sound) which gets tiring.

He has a cool voice, but gets annoying after about 40 min of listening, couldn't think of any other voice that was cool for a long period of time. I only liked him in Jackson 5 and early 80s stuff. I never liked him as a person but I'm not going there today... - HTML_RuleZ_D00D
He is awesome... His voice is just mesmerising... He should be no. 1... Vote him up guys,

12 Bob Marley
Robert Nesta "Bob" Marley was a Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, musician, and guitarist who achieved international fame and acclaim.
If you listen to a lot of reggae then you'll notice how unique Marley's voice is. Something about it sets him aside. Not to mention he wrote songs in a way that was new (back then) to reggae by including rock, but writing skills isn't a variable. This is coolest voices not artists.

His voice is extremely versatile. He can sing something as calming and quiet as blackbird and sing something as harsh as helter skelter. Personally, I think his voice is better than all the other Beatles. He needs to be higher
