Recently, Billboard unveiled their picks for the top 50 rock vocalists from the past seven decades. The selection predominantly features English-speaking talents, with many hailing from iconic rock bands.

In the top ranks, Mick Jagger emerges as the quintessential rock vocalist. Joining him are legends like Ozzy Osbourne, Lou Reed, Robert Plant, Axl Rose, and Freddie Mercury. Additionally, indie giants like David Byrne, Courtney Love, Paul Westerberg, and Thom Yorke have earned their spots.

Women too have made their mark. Debbie Harry from Blondie and Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac have entered the top 10. Yet, the list also celebrates artists like Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill), Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders), Hayley Williams (Paramore), and Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs).
