The list author says: "Wailers, growlers, screamers, smooth operators....rock music has produced some of the most unique and wonderful voices in its short and chaotic history. Here I provide a list of rockers (to varying degrees from pop rock to metal) whom I believe deserve a very special place in the halls of rockdom. This is not a complete list by far, and I plan to add more artists to it as time goes on. I've listed a few artists multiple times, but that's only due to the fact that they were successful with more than one band or as solo artists. Enjoy."
"Freddie Mercury is, was, and always will be one of the greatest voices to ever front a rock band. His voice could be beautiful at times and full of power at others. If you don't own any Queen music, you are not a fan of real rock!"
"Brian Johnson's gravel-laced growl allowed AC/DC to truck on despite having lost the wonderful Bon Scott. While Johnson's voice is a lot grittier, it's a perfect fit to the brothers Young and their straight-ahead style of rock."
"Few bands can boast having one great lead singer. AC/DC had two. Bon Scott's voice had a wail to it with just a tinge of bark and growl that made it a perfect accompaniment to the blistering rock of the rest of the band."
"With their legendary frontman out of the picture, who would have thought that Black Sabbath could find a voice just as unique and even more powerful than Ozzy's in Ronnie James Dio? Sabbath sounded like an entirely different beast with RJD at the front of the pack, and made some of their best music under his watch."
"Ronnie James Dio, much like his predecessor in Black Sabbath, did just as good or better as a solo artist with his band, Dio. Not to mention that he was also in Rainbow before that. An iconic voice in a small package of dynamite, RJD rates with the best voices in rock history."
"Ladies, don't feel left out. Ann Wilson's throaty and soulful voice is one of the best in rock music. Everytime I hear her sing "Magic Man" or even lighter fair such as "What About Love," I have to stop everything and just enjoy the moment."
"Another righteous rocker who deserves notice is John Schlitt. After parting ways with Head East, Schlitt took over for Greg X. Volz as the frontman of Petra, one of the most successful Christian rock acts of all time."
"Steven Tyler's voice might not hit the same levels as others on this list, but you cannot deny its uniqueness. From subtle tracks like "Dream On" to full-on wailers like "Angel," Tyler never holds back."
