Xfm's 20 Greatest Frontmen of All Time

No. 20 - Chris Martin

The Coldplay head honcho sadly brings up the rear in our Top 20 countdown.

No. 19 - Thom Yorke 

The Radiohead frontman shakes a mean maraca.

No. 18 - Ian Brown 

The Stone Roses legend makes No. 18 in our countdown.

No. 17 - Caleb Followill 

The Kings Of Leon star also plays a neat bit of guitar, too.

No. 16 - Ian Curtis 

The late, lamented Joy Division singer died in 1980 but his legend lives on

No. 15 - Joe Strummer 

Frontman with The Clash and a solo artist in his own right.

No. 14 - Eddie Vedder 

A strong showing for the Pearl Jam singer.

No. 13 - Tom Meighan 

Kasabian dude - the man of a thousand haircuts.

No. 12 - Mick Jagger 

The Rolling Stones frontman may have invented many of the great rock stage moves, but he doesn't make the Top 10.

No. 11 - Paul Weller 

Lots of love for The Modfather, but he just misses out on a Top 10 placing.

No. 10 - Alex Turner 

The Arctic Monkeys frontman is one of the most inventive songwriters of his generation.

No. 9 - Kurt Cobain 

Kurt checked out in 1994, but you still love him.

No. 8 - Jim Morrison 

The Doors singer famously died in a bath at his home in Paris in 1971.

No, 7 - Morrissey 

The Smiths superstar remains hugely popular, 25 years after the band split.

No. 6 - Brandon Flowers 

Frontman with The Killers, solo artist, synth twiddler, father, husband and Mormon.

No. 5 - Matt Bellamy 

Into the Top 5 with the guitar wielding hero that is Muse man Matt Bellamy.

No. 4 - Dave Grohl 

Officially the nicest man in rock.

No. 3 - Dave Gahan (MY KING <33)

Lots of support in Xfmland for the Depeche Mode dynamo.

No. 2 - Freddie Mercury 

The late, great Queen frontman came runner up in our poll of polls.

No. 1 - Liam Gallagher 

And our winner is... the Oasis and Beady Eye superstar! He outpolled Freddie by two to one votes. Thanks to everyone for voting!


ay for Chris, Ian, Kurt, Jim, Dave and Freddie <333

Offended @ Liam being No. 1 tbqh, if anyone had to beat Dave it should've been Freddie!!!
