The Best Frontmen in Rock

List Criteria: Only rock singers. No bands. Do not include other genres

Giving out the title of best frontman in rock is like crowning someone the king of rock and roll. There are so many factors that go into deciding the greatest front man (or woman) in rock that dubbing just one the head of all rock royalty seems nearly impossible. And yet, like the Highlander, there can be only one.

What makes a lead singer the best frontman in rock? Is it the rock singer with the best stage presence or does being the front man of the best live band in rock history automatically propel you to the top of the list of the best frontmen in rock? Does being one of the greatest singers of all time get you the title of greatest frontman? That's up to the music-loving masses to vote on.

Who is the best lead singer in rock? Who is the top rock frontman ever? Who are the best frontmen in rock? This is the place to vote for your favorite rock singers and vote down the overrated rock singers who you don't think have a place among the greatest rock frontmen. If your favorite lead singer or frontman is missing from the list of the top rock frontmen, make sure to add them and get them in the running for the rock talent ever.
