10. Kurt Cobain
The Nirvana frontman's career lasted only a handful of years, but he's inarguably one of the greatest songwriters of the past few decades. What's often overlooked is just how amazing a singer he was. Watch him sing "Where Did You Sleep Last Night" from Unplugged In New York to see a perfect example of his stunning vocal abilities. Few people have ever been able to match the passion and intensity he pours into the final verse.
