Trying to get to the Paradise City? Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose has the voice to get you there according to Concert Hotels.

The travel website recently posted a chart naming Rose as the greatest vocalist of all time. To get to this arguable result, the pictograph measured the vocal range of over 70 famous singers from a variety of eras and styles, then referenced their findings with a past Rolling Stone article and Internet message boards.

After measuring the highest note, lowest note and overall range of artists such as Kelly Clarkson, Justin Bieber and Lorde, Rose stands apart as the singer with both the lowest recorded note and most expansive vocal range. Only Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera and Prince beat out the GNR lead for the title of highest note belted on a track.

Listening to songs like “Welcome to the Jungle”, it’s undeniable that Rose is a vocal animal, but is he the best? While Concert Hotels has all the figures to prove its point, there is always a piece of musical talent that is impossible to measure.

Take a look at the site’s sleek interactive graphic and let us know which of their vocalists ranks as the “greatest ever” in your opinion.
