I don't know if he's the sort of "Rock" you're looking for, but if you want a GOAT singer, it's got to be Freddie Mercs. Unparalleled

Orbison is LEGIT. Guy is the top crooner imo.

Yorke is very good but imo he isn't on the same level as the others I listed. Maybe it's the restriction that the more electronically-driven Radiohead tracks place upon his vocals, but that style makes some of his lyrics appear slurred instead of sang. Then again, Exit Music is a very good example of how good Yorke can be.

Re: GOAT rock vocalist/singer suggestions

I agree with pretty much everything said about Cobain, a profound influence on lyrics I write. He just had such a raw power and scream that is contagious to many listeners. Here's my list, taking singing, vocalist, and frontman star power into consideration:

Godly Level
Freddie Mercury
Jim Morrison
Ronnie James Dio
Chris Cornell
Robert Plant

Kurt Cobain
Layne Staley
Mark Lanegan
Eddie Vedder
Aaron Lewis
Rob Halford
Bruce Dickinson
Ronnie Van Zant

WWE: CM Punk, Daniel Bryan, Antonio Cesaro, Kane, Taker, The Shield, AJ, The Wyatt Family, Corey Graves, Paige, Sami Zayn, PTP, Emma, Solomon Crowe, Kalisto
TNA: Austin Aires, Bully Ray, Kurt Angle, Velvet Sky, Bad Influence, Jeff Hardy, TJ Perkins
Other: Kevin Steen, Davey Richards, The Briscoes, Mike Bennett, Maria, Truth Martini, Michael Elgin, Adam Cole, Colt Cabana, Super Smash Bros, Scarlett Bordeaux, Chris Hero
Not removing until:
Paige debuts on main roster
Christopher Daniels is TNA World Champion
An Indy alumni headlines WrestleMania
Antonio Cesaro does a no-hand airplane spin
WWE signs Kevin Steen

Re: GOAT rock vocalist/singer suggestions

Is it just me, or could Morten Harket be mistaken for Roy Orbison on this track? Figured I might be straight trippin'.

Scott Weiland. SCOTT FREAKING WEILAND, guys. Also I'd definitely put Trent Reznor there, somewhere. He doesn't get as much recognition as a vocalist as is due. If only for DAT SCREAM alone. It's erotic.

Anyway, best singers:

Robert Plant
Ronnie James Dio
Ian Gillian
Layne Staley
Chris Cornell
Paul Rodgers
Mike Patton
Bruce Dickinson
Rob Halford
This, plus THE BOSS~! and Mercury

edit: But if we have to choose one as the best, I'd go for you BULLY.

Re: GOAT rock vocalist/singer suggestions

Meh, I think Scott Weiland is a good singer, not good enough to be classified as one of the all time greats. Fucking love the first two STP albums though. Trent Reznor is a good shout however.

Flatley my dear, I don't Riverdance.
