282 Ville Valo Ville Valo

cause his voice is very colorful, huge, high gifted and not a least Ville loves what he does.

Ville is simply the best singer I've ever heard in my whole life, and I've listened to H.I.M. since I was 12 because it's just amazing
But its so sad that ville is a so underrated singer, he and his band H.I.M. deserve more recognition than they get

Not only is Ville Valo a beautiful person, he has an undeniable talent for writing lyrics. His baritone voice can be manipulated and he can give literally any song his own style, weather it be Neil Diamond or Black Sabbath. HIM definitely deserves more recognition for what they do, because they are without a doubt one of the most down to earth bands I've ever had the please to listen to.

i love you

283 Agnetha Faltskog Agnetha Faltskog

She should be way higher on this list. Her voice is pure and sweet. ABBA wouldn't be complete without her. She works so well with Frida, Bjorn and Benny! I wish they didn't break up! You should listen to "The Winner Takes It All", "SOS", "The Day Before You Came" and loads more ABBA songs! She is a star in ABBA!

This gal had the voice of an angel with an incredible range and a great sense of timing. Along with Frida Lyngstadt set the Pop world on fire. As part of ABBA she and the rest of the group sold more records than anyone else on earth. Looking her Frida or ABBA on youtube will tell the story of the numbers. Millions of hits on each of their songs and nothing but compliments in the comments section. Clearly one of the best that ever was.

She's the first A in ABBA with the voice of an angel.

Although she had made a name for herself as a solo artist and song writer in Sweden, Agnetha Faltskog will always be best known for being part of the singing group ABBA.

Agnetha is a woman that transcends time, no matter the passing years, she will always remains the Queen of Hearts. -

She has such a sweet and angelic voice! As a solo singer, she is quite underrated but as a member of ABBA, she is an amazing singer! - ivylee

284 Ed Sheeran Ed Sheeran Edward Christopher "Ed" Sheeran is an English singer-songwriter and musician. He was born in Hebden Bridge in Yorkshire and raised in Framlingham, Suffolk.

To me it is absolutely disgusting that I had to spend so long searching for Ed's name to come up. Are you people crazy? He is so damn talented! I have seen him live and he sounds absolutely perfect, even better than in the studio. He has an amazing ability to lose himself in his music and he puts every fibre of his being, and every ounce of passion that he can into writing and performing his songs. He does amazing covers of songs too and introduces young fans to the great works of artists like Nina Symone. I am not saying that Ed is the most talented singer that has ever been; he's not. But he sure as hell should be further up the list than 576. That is outrageous. This list is crap and half of the people above Ed cannot sing to save their lives. We need to get him further up this list.

Ed Sheer an truly is a legend. He simply defines music in ways that no one else can. It's a shame that he is ranked so low when most of us know he deserves a spot in the Top 10 in not in the Top 5 or 3. I wouldn't even be shocked if he reaches the top of the list. He may be new but his creations are no less then the legends we used to listen to decades ago.

Depressing that he's not on even in the top 200. Ed is an amazing singer. Sounds great on his albums and even better live. Ed is amazing and his angelic voice and godlike music will live on forever. My children WILL know who Ed Sheeran is.

Place 287? he is awesome singer, he should not be in this low place - XlarEnder

He has an unique voice, one of a kind! you either love or hate him. I rather go for love... Once listen to it, you will not forget it!

His voice is so remarkable, so unearthy, so special. I love beautiful things - and his voice is one of the most beautiful and perfect things I've ever known. It is really precious.

286 Harry Styles Harry Styles Harry Edward Styles is an English singer and song writer, known as a member of the boy band One Direction .

Okay many people say that he has a bad voice? If you just listen to his lead vocals they're absolutely brilliant. I may be biased because I am completely in love with One Direction, but no matter what I wouldn't be able to deny he has a brilliant voice even if it isn't near the best in the world, just listening to his voice is true talent! Some of you should listen to their music and they do have talent regardless if you like their music or not.

Whoever put this needs to be reminded that this is a list of the BEST singers. A voice of a 5 year old doesn't cut it.

His voice was so sexy but he can't really use it right. They also gave him so many solos and now his voice sounds really sore. I'm happy their having a break

Why is he all the way back here, he must be in the top ten - XlarEnder

288 Peter Steele Peter Steele Petrus Thomas Ratajczyk, better known by his stage name Peter Steele, was the lead singer, bassist and composer for the gothic metal band Type O Negative.

On 10% of his capacity, he was 200% More Rock 'n Roll than anyone else. A true talent and a masterful songwriter. RIP, the Jolly Green Giant.

The true king of Rock 'n Roll. On 10% of his capacity he was 200% more Metal than anyone else. I think it's a sad fact. His voice, image and stype vere irreplaceable. RIP.

Dep voice, incredible.

289 Scott Stapp Scott Stapp Scott Stapp is an American singer, songwriter, and musician, known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of hard rock bands Creed and Art of Anarchy. He also has two solo albums: The Great Divide and Proof of Life.

Okay. So what the man made some mistakes. This guy can belt out a live tune like nobodies business and pulls emotions out of you. Scott and Mark Tremonti. Classic songwriters.

Scott has a unique voice and is undoubtedly one of the best songwriters ever. It's ridiculous how low he is on this poll. Kelly Clarkson? Katy Perry? Really, people? Those two combined aren't half as talented as Scott.

Scott stapp is a very best emotional singer. He is the singer that help the people and the sorrows that they contain in their hearts and minds.

Weathered, higher, with arms wide open, my sacrifice...

294 Miljenko Matijevic Miljenko Matijevic

He has one of the widest vocal ranges and just sings with emotion. He is so talented and should be in the top ten. If you know the song "She's Gone" by Steelheart, this guy is the one who sang it.

seriously, listen to this guy. hes amazing!!! -

Can sing the highest note and he is a male..

295 Ringo Starr Ringo Starr Richard Starkey known professionally as Ringo Starr, is an English musician, singer, songwriter and actor who gained worldwide fame as the drummer for the Beatles.

Wait, what? Ringo sings?... Uh... Well that's new I guess.

Ahem. Anyone in the Beatles changed music. Paul, George, Ringo, and John should be the top 4. But not specifically in that order.

Octopus' Garden got me through my fear of octopi. Now I can safely work in Yo! Sushi

He should be at number 9

296 Al Green Al Green

Amazing voice, try listening to " How can you mend a broken heart "

Greatest singer of the 20th Century!

Al GREEN is unique...NO ONE sounds like Al GREEN...NO ONE attempts to dupliocate Al GREEN...he is ONE OF A KIND...

297 Blake Shelton Blake Shelton Blake Tollison Shelton is an American country singer and television personality. In 2001, he made his debut with the single "Austin".

No he does not he can sing better than you

He sucks

Why the @#$% is he not higher! >:(

298 Michael Stipe Michael Stipe John Michael Stipe is an American singer, songwriter, film producer, music video director, and visual artist.

How can he not be viewed as having one of the greatest voices of all time.

One of the greatest singers of the past generation. Listen to "The Sidewinter Sleeps Tonight" just to see his vocal range. He can sing in a more grunge style as well, along with his famous "mumble," seen in R.E.M.'s first couple albums.

299 Rivers Cuomo (Weezer) Rivers Cuomo (Weezer) Rivers Cuomo is an American musician and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the lead vocalist, lead guitarist and songwriter of the alternative rock band Weezer, with whom he has recorded eleven studio albums.

Rivers is one of the most amazing singers of recent memory and if you say he sucks listen to Do You Wanna Get High and many other weezer songs.

300 Placido Domingo Placido Domingo

I was going to vote for Pavarotti but noticed that Domingo was so far down. My eats aren't yet accustomed to Opera singing so I can't really here a huge difference between the two but they both have absolutely angelic voices.
