Mike Patton

Seriously, there's no other rock vocalist that have the most diverse vocal style aside from being a songwriter, composer, lyricist, multi-instrumentalist and voice actor like Mike Patton. He has fronted different bands/projects with diverse musical styles like Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Lovage, Fantômas, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Peeping Tom and, of course his main band Faith No More.

Patton has earned critical praise for his diverse vocals, which touch on crooning, falsetto, death growls, rapping, chanting, mouth music, beatboxing and scatting, among other techniques.
