Who has the best scream in rock?

Any genre of rock...metal, alternative, etc.

I've always liked: Pete Loeffler of Chevell, Chino Moreno of Deftones, and Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden. There's more I'm sure, but those immediately jump to my mind.

Re: Who has the best scream in rock?

All good choices. To add one, I'll throw out Sebastian Bach. His scream about 30 seconds in to the song Monkey Business off of Slave To the Grind still gets me ramped up all these years later.

Daltrey.

Glad no one nominated Geddy Lee. He sounds like someone's standing on his testicles 24-7 (except in interviews).

Good Top 11 list from Rockcellar magazine. http://www.rockcellarmagazine.com/20....irX8LGam.dpbs

I'd forgotten about Screamin' Jay Hawkins, the opening to Beatle's "Revolution," and a few others they mention.

Can't believe that Plant's "Whole Lotta Love" didn't come to mind immediately (along with other Zeppelin tunes).
