So many great vocalists being mentioned, it's so hard to rate them. Here are my favorites though:
Nate Ruess - fun., The Format
Patrick Stump - Fall Out Boy, Solo
Jordan Blilie/Johnny Whitney - The Blood Brothers
Brandon Urie - Panic! at the Disco
Keith Buckley - Every Time I Die
Max Bemis - Say Anything
Brian Fallon - The Gaslight Anthem
Will Pugh - Cartel
Ben Gibbard - Death Cab
Brandon Urie needs more love though, he's so talented and IMO better than a few people on Jason's list.

Conor Oberst - Bright Eyes
Chris Carrabba - Dashboard Confessional/Further Seems Forever

John Gourley - Portugal. The Man/Anatomy of a Ghost
Rody Walker - Protest the Hero

I couldn't agree with you more Jason. This whole list is fantastic. I do think AJ from the Dangerous Summer has something spectacular going on too though
I definitely agree, AJ Perdomo's voice projects so much emotion, it's so powerful!

Josh Franceschi (You Me at Six)
Ian Watkins (Lostprophets)
Brandon Bolmer (Chiodos)
Dan Marsala (SOTY)
Phil Sneed (Greek Fire)
Nate Barcalow (Finch) live was decent but his lyrics own.
Matt Good (FFTL)
Gavin Butler (The Blackout)
Haley Williams (Paramore)
Pip Brown (Ladyhawke)
Matthew Wright (The Getaway Plan)

Kenny Vasoli, Anthony Green, Ryan Hunter,Andy Hull, Aaron Weiss, those are my personal favorites.

There is not nearly enough love for Kenny Vasoli in this thread, but he's way up there for me, along with Stephen Christian, Nate Ruess, Andrew McMahon, Alex Gaskarth (dude has pipes), Will Pugh, Chris Carabba, and (stepping out of the box) Damon Albarn, Billy Joel, and John Mayer.

Was going to edit my previous post but he deserves his own post.
I'm ashamed of myself for forgetting about him but Rody Walker from Protest the Hero takes my top spot.

Matt Thiessen (Relient K) anyone?

Unbelievable some of these picks.
Seriously I get a matter of subjective opinion, but if we are talking top vocalist in terms of raw talent (range/pitch/tone/timing etc.), I cannot for the life of me fathom some of these suggestions.
Maybe some of you are leaning more towards "lead singer" attributes in which case it very much is subjective and the sexxxiii guys/girls or the guy who jumps around on stage the most will get a mention.

walking on a wire on the ground
agree with the past couple of posts that mentioned matt thiessen and the dude from conditions.
dallas green (not even a huge alexisonfire/c&c fangirl, i just love dallas' voice)
i'd list my favourite vocalist in terms of power/range/pitch as zac hanson (one of these things is not like the other) his voice on their last couple of records and especially during live shows is incredible, especially the cover of 'oh darling' by the beatles where he holds one note for about 30 seconds and then just busts back into playing the drums like it's no big deal.
