    • Chester Bennington wins this 10/10 times/neck and neck with BSmith…. but because they have to be alive dad to say obviously Chester is not with us anymore. RIP Chester Bennington

    • Marko Saaresto, hands down can run vocal laps around everyone else listed here in tone, range and capability in various styles. The vast majority of these bog standard vocalists here can’t hold a tune when it comes to live performances either. Despite this Marko is lesser known and criminally underrated so won’t win.

  1. What are you talking about Myles Kennedy is the best one alive he can sing high af and can sing any song without compromising his own style. He can be Axl or he can be Freddie Mercury but still you’d know it’s him.

  2. M. Shadows from Avenged Sevenfold not included? He has a raspy voice who can go high and has a touch of opera-ratic too it, behind beautiful melodies.

  3. I think back its very hard to choose ..ive seen at least 80%of these performers,,from white snake to skid row n motley crue ac/dc ..to kiss .rob zombie..static x ..Metallica..kid rock to LL COOL J..whodini…new edition ..keith sweat..lisa lisa n the cult jam..people i can go triple from a to z….its easier to name the only 2 left ive havent seen on my list….ive only been disappointed a couple ×..
    Lololololol😃😜😜😜 long stories..ive prolly been to a 1000 shows….maybe more..ive been to 10 already this yr alone..and their not what they used to be …1st off and mainly you cant even go and have fun anywhere anymore ..you always gots to stay on point..and its so sad pink floyd. I grew up on..was on my list..2016 my daddy died..and i won tickets to and evening with roger waters..i wished you all couldve seen it…thee absoulute best show ever…i cried a few times ..on i wished you were here…especially..even though..my daddy was gone home… i knew he was rt beside me ….music is my life and im not bout to let no one steal the next generations..my sons dream of being a musician..or other childs dream..i grew up on greatness…let our children do the same..stop the violence..stop the pain let rain wash it way…lets be free n safe..lets be able to let our kids play out worry free…instead of drive bys..kidnappers .murderes n thieves.amen..crp…TAMMY BURNETT….AKA TAMMYGiRL….louisville ky.

  4. I would have voted, there were some excellent vocalists in the list, from bands I adore, but I didn’t because my favourite voice was missing from this incredible lineup!
    Wes Scantlin from Puddle Of Mudd!
    He would be my vote!

  5. Devin Townsend???
    Hagar, Coverdale, Kennedy, hell everybody you put up there is All-World (except Vince Neil). But you must not know Devin Townsend yet. Cheers

  6. Brent Smith of Shinedown hands down. His vocals are amazing and everything the band and how they treat their fans is just unique and genuine. When you can sing a cover better than the original also… you are good. Sounds even better live. No contest. Lots of good talent though no doubt with everyone mentioned.

  7. Hands down Noah Rothbaum of Rival Sons is the best singer going these days…HUGE OMISSION WTF!!! But Myles Kennedy and Sammie were very good alternate choices…
