Top 10 Rock Stars Of All Time

Who is the greatest rock star of them all?

So, who exactly is the greatest rock star that has ever lived? It's a topic that has caused many heated debates over the years, so Green Beans has decided to create a list of our own. Based on lead singers of bands only, here's our list of top 10 rockers who ever graced the stage. Please comment below and let us know if we've missed anyone out.

10. Ozzy Osbourne

Ozzy Osbourne rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the pioneering band Black Sabbath. His unique vocal grain and on-stage presence made him a true heavy rock icon across the 70s and 80s.

9. Dave Grohl

Known in his early days as the drummer of grunge band Nirvana, Dave Grohl has grown from strength to strength as the front-man of the Foo Fighters. Grohl is now without doubt one of the most well known and respected rock stars ever to grace the stage.

8. Lemmy

Pure grit and heavy rocking madness is what the 'God of Rock', Lemmy, was all about. The Motorhead lead singer and bassist has rocked our souls for over 30 years, being one the most important rock stars this music genre has ever known.

7. James Hetfield

James Hetfield's status as one of the best ever rock stars has been firmly cemented since Metallica's rise up the metal charts in the 1980s. This guitar playing front-man has been relentless for over 30 years, and is part of the most successful heavy metal band of all time.

6. Steven Tyler

When it comes to pure singing ability, Steven Tyler is certainly one of the best on this list. With a diverse vocal range and superb on-stage performing skills, the Aerosmith front-man has become a key figure in world of rock.

5. Kurt Cobain

The 90s saw a big shift in power within the rock world. Kurt Cobain and Nirvana swooped aside big haired rock and introduced us to the gritty sound of grunge. Cobain's life was cut tragically short, but his legend will live on.

4.Iggy Pop

Now well into his 60s, this American rock singer-songwriter, musician, and actor still knows how to move on stage and entertain a crowd. Love him or hate him, Iggy Pop will always be a legend in the world of rock.

3. Bruce Dickinson

Another extremely gifted vocalist makes it onto our list at number three. Iron Maiden's best ever front-man, Bruce Dickinson, has been immense throughout a long career, entertaining packed out stadiums and leading one of the most successful British heavy metal bands of all time.

2. Axl Rose

We prefer to remember Axl Rose for his time with the original Guns N' Roses line-up in the late 80s and early 90s. With his snake-like moves, screeching vocal tone and hugely talented writing skills, Axl will always be remembered as the king of the rock world during his time at the top.

1. Freddie Mercury

Who else could possibly have made the number one spot other that the legend himself, Freddie Mercury. The Queen front-man had flair, finesse and a belting voice to match. If there was ever a man that could entertain and bring a whole stadium to its feet, that man was King Freddie.
