Voting Rules
Only frontmen and front-women singers in rock.

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 classic 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? How about being a famous enough rock star to rack up multiple Rolling Stone cover photos? That's up to the music-loving masses to vote on.

From Queen's Freddie Mercury to Led Zeppelin's Robert Plant, all of your favorite hardcore lead vocalists are featured below. 

If you're wondering: Who is the best lead singer in rock? Who is the top rock frontman ever? Who are the best frontmen in rock, that led their respective bands to unprecedented heights? Then look no further! This list serves as the ultimate place to vote for your favorite rock vocalists and vote down the overrated rock singers whom you don't think deserve a place among the greatest rock frontmen.
