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!
