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.

<![CDATA[The Best Christmas Songs of All Time]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/my-favorite-christmas-songs
What are the best Christmas songs ever? Holiday songs are without a doubt incredibly popular year after year, and some songs have remained classics for decades. The best Christmas carols and songs manage to capture the spirit of the holidays and tap into our nostalgia, making us sing along despite ourselves. Who hasn't burst into a little "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" once in a while? That's what this list is all about: the greatest Christmas songs. Vote for your favorites, add any that are missing, and have a wonderful, happy, holly jolly Christmas, everyone.

Holiday songs can be traditional Christmas carols like "O Holy Night" and "Oh Come All Ye Faithful" or they can be more modern, rocking versions of classics like Bruce Springsteen's version of "Santa Claus is Coming To Town." There are also great country Christmas songs and remixed versions, like Bing Crosby and David Bowie's version of "Little Drummer Boy" (as well as not-so-great worst Christmas songs). And yes, not to be left out of the mix, there are also some pretty solid hip-hop/rap Christmas songs. Examples, you say? How about Run D.M.C.'s "Christmas in Hollis" or Kanye West's "Christmas in Harlem"?

The best Christmas songs often come from brilliant best Christmas albums, too. Case in point: Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" became a staple holiday song after it's release in 1994, as part of Carey's Christmas album, titled appropriately enough, 'Merry Christmas.'

From the traditional best Christmas carols to the more modern, this list includes the greatest holiday songs ever sung. Feel free to rerank this list anyway you want. Pa rum pa pum pum!

What makes someone the best bass player in rock music? Should the rock bassist with the best stage presence, or the bass player with the fastest fingers, or the bass player who's the best singer be considered the "best rock bassist? Should the bass player with the craziest hair should be given special consideration (although, to be fair, at one point or another in their careers, most of the people on this list were bass players with crazy habits, hair or otherwise)? Well, that would probably go under the category of bass player with the best stage presence, but still...

Who are the best bassists in rock? Who are the best bass guitarists? Who is the top rock bassist ever? These are some of the questions this list of the best rock bassists hopes to answer. If you don't see your favorite bass guitar player on the list, make sure to add them to this list of the top rock bassists so others can appreciate their musical gifts to rock!

<![CDATA[The Best Pink Floyd Songs]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/favorite-pink-floyd-songs
List of the best songs ever recorded by the progressive rock band Pink Floyd. These are original Pink Floyd songs (no covers) either found on one of the band's 14 albums or released as a B-side or single. Pink Floyd is one of the most commercially successful bands in music history, selling over 250 million records, though they are perhaps best known for the concept albums "Dark Side of the Moon" and "The Wall." These albums and others have proved massively influential, not just to other psychedelic and progressive rock bands, but musicians from a variety of styles and genres. Though various band members have played together during individual concerts or shows, Pink Floyd officially disbanded in 1994. Founding member Richard Wright died in 2008.

Pink Floyd was formed in 1965 by college friends Roger Waters, Nick Mason, Wright and Syd Barrett. Guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour - who would go on to write and sing on a number of the band's popular songs - joined the group in 1967. Barrett, who had been the primary songwriter and lead vocalist during the band's early and more psychedelic years, departed the band in 1968 due to issues with mental illness and drug use. Barrett attempted unsuccessfully to pursue a solo career, but largely disappeared from the public eye until his death in 2006. A number of Pink Floyd songs - including many from the album "Wish You Were Here" - were dedicated to Barrett.

<![CDATA[The Best Genres of Music]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-genres-of-music
One of the biggest questions asked is what is the best genre of music? For many, this can be the source of heated arguments as everyone has their own opinion and tastes of what is good and what isn't. Today's music genres are more broken down and deeper than ever, which can cause multiple arguments for or against a different subgenre within a particular genre. For example, fans of alternative rock and indie rock could argue the merits of one particular brand of rock versus the other. These are both under the rock umbrella, but alas, they're separate genres.

The same thing can be said for hip hop and even heavy metal, where both can be broken down further. No matter what your outlook, taste or musical preferences are, you can make a claim here on this list what the best genre is. There are plenty of choices on this Ultimate List of the Best Genres of Music, but only one can be considered the best. If you want to voice your support to why your favorite genre should be known as the best, then vote for your top choice. If you see a genre or even a subgenre missing from the list feel free to add it. That could be anything, as long as it's not on the list.

Classical Rock/Progressive


Heavy Metal

If you ask anyone who has ever tried, it's tough to write one song, nevertheless a batch to be considered a songwriter. Add to the mix that the song actually getting recorded and becoming a hit, it's pretty hard to be a great songwriter. Yet that's what make the greatest songwriters different from Average Joe who has tried to pen a song. The best songwriters usually have written multiple hits that not only their most ardent fans know, but also casual listeners.

John Lennon and Paul McCartney are considered two the best songwriters. The Beatles were fueled by this legendary duo's prowess and are debatably the greatest band because these two outstanding songwriters.

Similarly to Lennon and McCartney, Bob Dylan is another songwriter who can be considered one of the greatest of all time. Dylan's songwriting introduced powerful imagery and themes that were deeply layered within the context of his writing. His songwriting influenced an entire generation of bands, songwriters and fans, including another member of this list, Bruce Springsteen.
