    I saw another post which mentioned how soothing those ripping rock and roll screams can be. Please post your favs and we can come here to listen when we need a good shredding of emotions.

    I'll send specific times as I like listening to my faviourite bits from songs on repeat. These aren't really rock and roll genre screams, but they're powerful vocals. The first 3 are elongated - each one at 10 seconds or longer. I find them mesmerising.

    From 2:45 and at around 3:00 he does an elongated scream. I like the distortion as it sounds like a mix between a voice and guitar distortion



    From 3:30 there's a guitar solo and then from 4:20 there's a 12 second long scream.



    Some folk metal next. Vocals in this are rather black metal like in tone. I enjoy this genre as it encorporates a lot of interesting instruments into the usual heavy metal ensemble. From 1:58 is a brief guitar solo and then some wonderful instrumental build up (around 2:27) followed by an almighty and rather ominous scream/roar (2:43) which rumbles along in the background with the instrumentals for about 10 seconds. He does another, less subdued scream at 3:40 too.



    Finally, this one is quite a heavy song from the deathcore genre. It's interesting a occasionally he incorporates an 80's rock style scream such as at 1:28. Out of all of the songs I've shared this one is probably my favourite as it's technical, emotive and highly energetic.



    I'll add some more if I can think of any. But these 4 are the most memorable I can recall.

    How about Robert Plant's long scream @4:14 in Kashmir? I've heard he blew out sound equipment back then doing it.

    It's already been mentioned, Led Zepplin's Robert Plante singing pretty much anything:

    The Immigrant song, not their best really, my brother used to play it to drive my parents crazy.

    A lot of screaming in this one, especially after about 3 minutes. This song was about his brother who died in a motorbike accident. It's very emotional, it's not pleasant to listen to.

    "Be careful with that axe, Eugene". Pink Floyd. This is a early one, when Roger Waters was still there. Some of screams that come out of his mouth sound scary.

    Are we counting metal, or just classic rock? Because if so, I'd say Halford screams in Painkiller are epic.

    This singer is autistic and his songs are delightful in repetitive words/screams/guitar riffs. And in this song, he doesn't mask. He makes every ridiculous face he can.
    Outtathaway sung by * The Vines*
    Another hit was *Ride*

    Bon Jovi screams and sings it rough.
    The classic rock look is sexy as it gets, IMO.


    Billy Idol is another.
    This is the song I can't keep from singing with and volume up!

    Put White Wedding with it! More, more, more, more, more...

    Holy Moly!! I didn't any coffee this morning! I am ready to go out and face the day! (Mask included, of course). Wow. You know, on the first one, I really liked at :15-18, too. His voice is very soothing there. I never heard of a lot of these groups. I will pass them on to people I know who love metal. Thanks, Ragg!

    TOTAL Classic! I never knew that about the equipment, but it does not surprise. Zep rocks and I am listening to this right now :)

    The original “I put a spell on you”. Singers name is even Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. I think I read that he was drunk or something when he recorded this

    There's a lot of great examples from different artists I can think of, but I'd say the chorus from this New Model Army song is a really good one, especially when Justin Sullivan screams "Put out the lights on the age of reason".
