Who has the greatest range among singers, and how many octaves does it span?

Written by on December 3, 2020

The answer stating Axl Rose is incorrect. Rose has a five octave range — impressive, but not the greatest. Mike Patton of Faith No More/Mr. Bungle is currently recognized as having the widest vocal range in popular music at over 6 octaves (and for the record, David Lee Roth and Corey Taylor both also have wider ranges than Rose).
