Most Distinctive Rock Voices

  • Aug 28, 2009
  • by
All it takes is the first three words of a song from these artists to know exactly who is singing. The voices are as distinctive as the music itself.
1
Bob Dylan
Bob Dylan's voice is so unique even Bob Dylan sounds like a parody of Bob Dylan.
2
Elvis Presley
You've got to give credit to a guy who has been dead for 30 years (allegedly) and still inspires impersonators.
3
Eddie Vedder
Just listen to Hunger Strike by Temple of the Dogs. You'll know when Eddie Vedder steps in. Even in interviews, Eddie's voice is just captivating. I'd go to an insurance seminar to hear Eddie Vedder speak.
5
Bono
I don't know where the Irish accent goes when he starts singing, but I can listen to it all day. Or maybe it's just my man-crush on Bono...
6
Neil Young
Neil Young and Neil Diamond get grouped together in my list because both of their deep rich voices make my voice sound like a little girl.
8
Jim Morrison
The music of the Doors has a very unique sound in and of itself, and Jim Morrison's vocals are equally distinctive.
10
Kurt Donald Cobain
I didn't realize how unique Kurt's voice was until the MTV Unplugged album... probably one of the top 10 albums of all time in my opinion and his voice is even better in the acoustic set.

What did you think of this list?

good list, but i'd have to say that (the late) Bon Scott from ACDC would have to be #1. to this day there's nothing else like it.

I'm a technology early adopter. I thoroughly enjoy geeking out with the latest hardware, software and electronics. I probably have as much fun setting up, tweaking, and configuring systems as I do actually … more
