    Layne Staley, for me. great character and range to his voice. just an amazing singer.

    i'm sure i didn't include a bunch of awesome singers that you might feel belong in this poll, but i just wanted to know between these four.

    For pure vocal technique and range I gotta go with Cornell

    For lyrics and song writing gotta go with Cobain

    I went with Cornell. He has a good range and and really belt out some tunes and writes great lyrics.

    Kurt was an innovator, but I couldn't stand him live. Eddie got on my nerves with his lyrics in the later albums. Layne was actually a VERY close 2nd almost first, but on the albums if you kill Jerrys backups he isn't as full sounding as most people think. I was going to give him the rating for the Mad Season album.

    Chris Cornell, even though I don't listen to much of his music.

  7. Layne. I've seen plenty of clips of Cornell that I didn't like, particularly with Audioslave. He's number 2 from that list though because he indeed has moments of greatness.

    I'm going with Staley for the simple fact that his vocals really complimented the music. Cornell's a close second and Vedder is meh. Cobain's vocals were as good as his guitar playing.

    never done this, but i don't doubt it.

    to me, Layne Staley conveyed more emotion than the others. i think Cornell's got him in the belting department, but i enjoy Staley's belting more (whoa... weird sentence if taken out of context). when Staley belts, i really feel it, y'know?

    I had to go with Cornell. Sheer vocal strength, range and dynamics I think he's got all that. Stayley's a close 2nd, the one thing he's got on Cornell is emotion. Kurt Cobain had a lot of emotion albeit sometimes poorly conveyed, and I don't think Ed Vedder even rates on this list other than the fact that he was in a grunge band.

    I'd have to vote for Cornell on the strength of Euphoria Morning alone.

    Kurt Cobain I suppose. I'm not really a fan of any of those guys.

    I wish Chris Cornell had shot himself in the early '90s. Could've saved us from all that Audioslave garbage.

    If I had to pick from this list, I'm going Vedder... he's soulful without being overly anguished, from what I'm familiar with. Also, I dig baritones... he's a baritone, right?

    cornell in the lead!
  16. Kurt, at least in the early days.

    I really despise the whole "underbite rock" vocals thing... I wish it were bands like the Young Fresh Fellows and the Fastbacks that made it big instead of the ones that ended up saturating the airwaves....
