But it was Brit rocker Liam Gallagher that was considered the best ever frontman.
Kasabian star Tom Meighan who was ranked No 19 in the poll agreed with choice, saying: "Chris Martin is all right if you're 35 and feeling sad that your mortgage repayments have gone up but Liam is the voice you want if you're you and free and up for anything."
Speaking of his new accolade, in the modest way many his fans have come accustomed to, Gallagher compared himself to King of rock'n'roll himself.
He said: "There is Elvis and me. I couldn't say which of the two is best."
And the secret to being a great frontman? "Behaving yourself and not jumping round like a b****." We're glad that's cleared that up!
