Yes, I did base this idea off of the guitarist thread....

If I had to make a top 10, this is who I would choose:
10. Chino Moreno (Deftones)
9. Zach De La Rocha (Rage Against the Machine)
8. Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers)
7. Chris Robinson (Black Crowes)
6. John Mayer
5. Eddie Vedder (Peral Jam)
4. Layne Staley (Alice In Chains)
3. Brandon Boyd (Incubus)
2. Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave)

...and finally....of course....

1. Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle)

Please do not flame me for this, it's just my opinion. So who do you thinks the best?

Move everyone down one on that list and put Matthew Bellamy #1 on the list and it matches mine.

It'd be a game about nothing. But it would be fantastic, better than the Sims by far because there would be more jews.

Devin Townsend kinda smokes the rest of your list. Yes, that includes Maynard.

Also, Howard from Killswitch needs a spot somewhere. He's got more power on his cleans than most can dream of.

Jeff Buckley, even though he died in the 90's, had one of the best voices of all time.

If you wanted a list to put in Rolling Stone to placate the mainstream listeners, then you just nailed it. Otherwise, lurk moar music.

dont flame I know its a gay band but Mika the guy that did the Grace Kelly song is a phenomonal singer he reminds me of Freddie

Well, I know 90% of the people on this site are somewhere between 13 and 19. So basically any band you grew up with. AKA nobody who was famous in the 70's

As far as the best singer?

Chris Cornell. But that's just me judging on singing.

Maynard James Keenan is a very close 2nd.

2. Mike Patton
3. Eddie Vedder
4. Chris Cornell
5. Layne Staley
6. Brandon Boyd
7. Shannon Hoon
8. Chino Moreno
9. Maynard James Keenan

he's actually quite terrible live, which suggests the studio helps him sing.

Brent Smith of Shinedown belongs very high on that list, as does J Loren of Hurt.

10. Scott Weiland (STP, Velvet Revolver)
9. Chris Robinson (Black Crowes)
8. Brandon Boyd (Incubus)
7. Chester Bennington (Linkin Park)
6. J. Loren (Hurt)
5. Matt Bellamy (Muse)
4. Layne Staley (Alice In Chains)
3. Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave)
2. Brent Smith (Shinedown)

/\ Scott Weiland doesn't deserve to be on the list. he was good on core, but then changed his vocal style and took so much heroin that his voice was not as powerful. chris cornell's voice has been f*cked up too, but at least its coming back again slowly. Mark Lanegan has damaged his voice too through smoking and drugs, but still has an unique voice. my top 10 (in any order):
1. Jeff Buckley
2. Layne Staley
3. Maynard James Keenan
4. Matt Bellamy
5. Brandon Boyd
6. Chris Cornell
7. Mark Lanegan
8. Thom Yorke
9. Chino Moreno
10. Hayley Williams (surprised no one has mentioned a female vocalist yet)

1. Brent Smith (Shinedown)
2. Ben Burnley (Breaking Benjamin)
3. Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge)
4. Donald Carpenter (Submersed)

He's not a very technical singer, but Julian Casablancas sure has a memorable voice. It's like a little bit false, IMO, but he still manages to adjust his singing style according to the song and tempo. And when he howls; he howls, for real.

Neither of them are modern rock, but my two favorites are Serj Tankian (System of a Down), he is one of the most talented musicians there is today. And Tim McIlrath (Rise Against). But as far as modern rock goes, I like Anthony Kiedis...especially in the BSSM days. Oh, and if you condsider de la Rocha a singer he's one of my favs...

Oh yeah, and what about JACK BLACK? LOL <3 Tenacious D

GASP!

another fanning fan.

i love that man.

i love Eddie Vedder personally, but of recent years it can sound a bit ragged. though he uses that to great effect on "man of the hour" IMO.

Anthony Kiedis too, when he sings in tune it's a beautiful thing, and no one punk-funk raps quite like the Kiedis.
