Very few hard rock / heavy metal singers make the RollingStone’s “200 Greatest Singers of All-Time”

It seems that the publication RollingStone does not think that many hard rock / heavy metal singers are amongst the greatest singers of all-time.

RollingStone recently published an article titled The 200 Greatest Singers of All-Time and only the following hard rock / heavy metal singers (and other rock ‘n roll pioneers) made the cut:

#12 — John Lennon (The Beatles, Solo)
#14 — Freddie Mercury (Queen)
#26 — Paul McCartney (The Beatles, Wings, Solo)
#32 — David Bowie
#52 — Mick Jagger (The Rolling Stones)
#63 — Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin, Solo)
# 82 — Steve Perry (Journey)
#109 — Roger Daltrey (The Who)
#112 — Ozzy Osbourne (Solo, Black Sabbath)
#129 — Rob Halford (Judas Priest, Halford, Fight)
#134 — Axl Rose (Guns N’ Roses, AC/DC)
#165 — Ronnie James Dio (Dio, Black Sabbath, Rainbow)
#199 — Glenn Danzig (Danzig, Misfits)
