Bro & Poot's Top 10 Replacement Singers

It happens.  The bands we love have to replace members from time to time.  Wether it is due to booze, drugs, money or in-fighting, it happens.  As, fans we cringe when we hear that any of the bands we love are replacing members, but when it is a lead singer that is being replaced it very rarely works out and we as fans freak the fuck out.  However, throughout heavy metal history there have been those rare moments when a band has brought in a new front man and it not only worked but the band didn't miss a beat and in a few instances the band ended up becoming even more popular.  

The topic of who is the best replacement singer in metal history has been debated often while Poot and I were sitting on a bar stool somewhere.  We decided to put together our lists of the best replacement singers in heavy metal history and we hope you enjoy.  Please let us know your thoughts and always, ROCK ON.  -Bro
