50: Cash or Howlin Wolf

60: fuck, too many maybe Joplin

70: too many, maybe prime Robert Plant

80: first half: Dio. second half: Axl

90: Axl and (laugh all you want) Cobain and Staley

00-10: Good music* is reserved for the 20th century

 

 

 

* i'm joking, there are a few goodies here and there, but there isn't any legendary and  talented at the same time

 

This list is only the singers, right?

 

For bands: that's a completely different story

1950s:  I don't listen to any.  It's all dead people music.

1960s:  My favorite 60s group is the Monkees so Davy Jones and Mickey Dolenz I guess.

1970s:  Robert Plant I guess, but I don't listen to a lot of that either.

1980s:  Axl, obviously.

1990s:  Beck

2000s:  Stuart Murdoch of Belle & Sebastian

2010s:  Music is all steaming shit now.  Get off my lawn.

And as far as the 70`s singers go, Rod Stewart should be mentioned as well.

 

Very distinctive, raspy and powerful voice. Similar to Axl`s.

Why do not you fags mention Ian Gillan ? in early 70`s he was better than Percy.

I'm a big MKII Deep Purple fan, Gillan was amazing but really, apart from the screams, he isn't a good singer, he even struggled with his own rhythm vocal lines

Plant could sing normally though. (he went to shit during the mid-70's, imho)

Gillan literally couldn't sing since the mid 90's so...

None of the grunge guys grab you? I find their style of singing much more natural and thus easier to enjoy than Axl's in the 90s. On AFD Axl is great. On the UYIs his vocals are strong but the accents and affectations and stylings he uses almost sound like a parody of himself at times.

I love the grunge guys, and many of them were objectively better than Axl in the 90s, but the 90s was most of my childhood, and my childhood was all about Axl Rose. It'd be dumb for me to choose anyone else.

Elvis was good even just messing around no matter the state he was in.

 

Aretha almost had #1 hits over 5 decades. I believe she barely missed having a #1 at the end of the 90s.

I would go with this list, and even add Vedder to the 90s.
