The most talented and versatile vocalist and musician in modern alternative music. Has recorded on no fewer than 60 albums, either as a solo artist, guest contributor, or as lead vocalist... these include Mr Bungle, Faith No More, Tomahawk, Fantomas, Lovage, Peeping Tom, Weird Little Boy, Romances, Moonchild, Dillinger Escape Plan, John Zorn, The Melvins, Sepultura, Kid 606, Hemophiliac, Dub Trio, and many more.

His newest projects are Crudo (with Dan The Automator) and Mondo Cane (an Italian orchestral piece.)

Throw into the mix his involvement in films (both starring and writing/recording soundtracks,) and voiceovers in video games... you have a pretty busy man.

A man who recorded his first album in 1989 with influential band Faith No More and promoted Mr. Bungle (the best bnad ever) in the process, and then went on to work in Tomahawk and Fantomas, also gonad kicking groups. Also known as the best person in the music industry with a razorblade sense of humor and a tendency to work 14 things at a time like a motherfucker.
Mike Patton is the best thing since sliced bread.

One of the most versatile voices ever. Mike Patton never ripped off Kiedis' style his voice has far too much range. Many try to imitate him(Serj Tankian, Johnathon Davis, etc.) but to no avail.
My favorite vocalist is Mike Patton.

Greatest vocalist in metal. Sung for Faith No More in place of the previously awful vocalist Chuck Mosely. He got the job based on a demo he handed FNM from his work with Mr Bungle. He worked these two bands together and made some messy and random music with Mr Bungle, all 3 albums vary greatly in genre, showcasing his diverse ability. His first album with FNM- The Real Thing was an epic 80's album although Angel Dust and the sub-sequent albums essentialy created the nu-metal genre. After the splitting of Faith No More he went into Fantomas, an even stranger band than Mr Bungle. In Fantomas. he rarely uses lyrics, instead using his voice as an instrument creating a variety of obscure noises. His latest band is the more linear Tomahawk. He's also performed on Dillinger Escape Plan EP- Irony is a Dead Scene and ventured into rap with General Patton vs The X Ecuctioners there's also his experimental solo work.
"Shit man, this music is the fucking shit!"

"Who is it?"

"Mike fucking Patton, you dig?"

"Yeah, Patton owns"
