And while Aguilera does have a decent enough voice, she is in no way a better singer than a lot of the people on that list that she's higher than.
Then what else would you gauge a list against. There is no singular aspect of any vocalist that you can judge on.
If you want objective results you would have to have something like loudest or highest pitch. There are many more people that I would put on the list that many would disagree with but the "greatest" anything is going to be subjective and based on opinion.
Bermuddy is a pretty cool guy
Each voter was asked to list his or her 20 favorite vocalists from the rock era, in order of their importance. Those ballots were recorded and weighted according to methodology developed by the accounting firm of Ernst & Young, which then tabulated and verified the results for Rolling Stone.
There's no way of knowing how the panel interpreted this... it does seem that maybe not everyone really focused that much on actual singing talent. The term 'importance' is highly subjective and 'rock era' is also vague. And of course, the actual ranking is being done by a financial auditing firm, so take that as you will.
These lists always use "Greatest" and it just means whatever they want it to mean. But then again, who wants to read a list of the "Favorite Singers of the Rock Era (sorted by order of importance)"?
Mike Patton is nowhere to be found on the page
