My picks are:

1. Eddie Vedder (Mother Love Bone, Pearl Jam)
2. Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A Perfect Circle, Puscifer)
3. Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog, Audioslave)
4. Layne Staley (Alice In Chains, Mad Season)
5. Kurt Cobain (Nirvana)
6. Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes)
7. Scott Stapp (Creed)
8. James Hetfield (Metallica)
9. Corey Taylor (Stone Sour, Slipknot)
10. Anthony Kiedis (Red Hot Chili Peppers)

I could have added others like Aaron Lewis (Staind), and Gavin Rossdale (Bush, Institute), but I'm sure people will add any singers that aren't mentioned above.
