Top 100 Singers According to You


08/14/2009
.
(antiMusic) A few weeks back we put out a call to all Day in Rockers to submit their picks for their favorite singers and we are now happy to present you with the results. And what results they are! Some expected results but also some real surprises show just how diverse the rock community really is with the top 10 spanning decades but leaning towards harder rockers.

Think you can guess who came out as No. 1? Think again because some superstars like Bruce Springsteen and Bono from U2 made poor showings, just barely making the list. In fact, ''Weird Al'' Yankovic proved to be far more popular with Day in Rockers. Just shows you that trends be damned!

Another surprising result it how some replacement singers from legendary bands actually received more votes than their original singers. Dio bested Ozzy and Sammy Hagar topped David Lee Roth.

While harder rockers ruled the day, some mellower artists like Dave Matthews and Jason Mraz also made the list. So it's a diverse collection of singers and we now give you the list to see if your favorites made strong showing and if you are agree or disagree with the results. [Stay tuned for our next poll where you get to pick your favorite guitarists!]
