Nothing punches up a great rock track like a killer scream.  And has ranked the 35 best, and I have to tell ya, they are pretty spot on!

UCR bent the “rock” genre with James Brown, but since he was their #1 pick, we included him here.  They also linked a video of the Beatles doing “Revolution” that shows Paul screaming instead of John.  For the record, it’s John double-tracked on the original single.

Another cool note, in the Joe Cocker cover of the Beatle’s “Friends,” that Jimmy Page on guitar!

Here are the Top 20, but I encourage you in the strongest of terms to check out UCR’s list and accompanying videos…and to maybe let out a scream of your own sometime today. You’ll feel better, I promise!
