I think Axl deserves to be in the Top 10 because he used to be great in the golden days of GnG. But he totally destroyed his own reputation. Now he's just an asshole.


My list:


1. Freddie Mercury

2. Jim Morrison

3. Kurt Cobain

4. Mick Jagger

5. Robert Plant

6. John Lennon

7. Zack de la Rocha

8. Matt Bellamy

9. Thom Yorke

10. Axl Rose

This is stupid, Freddie Mercury is better than Axl, the same Axl said a lot of times that Freddie Mercury is a Rock God and he (Rose) is only shit compared with him (Mercury).


Bellamy 8th and up!


Anyway those list are ever very personal and subjetive. (But Axl is the first position is a crime)

Whether or not you agree with Muse's direction as of late, how does that make Bellamy a "shit" frontman? Sure they aren't as energetic as they used to be as a whole, but still...he's still way more entertaining to watch than most (or all) current frontmen in rock.
