Gene Simmons isn't holding anything back when it comes to a highly controversial Rolling Stone list ranking the top 200 singers of all time ... according to the publication.
We caught up with the KISS rocker who weighed in after the magazine posted its "200 Greatest Singers of All Time" ... which snubbed a lot of music icons in the process.

Simmons tells us it's all about who's popular and who's not ... saying the whole thing is skewed and often one-sided.
Gene says the list isn't necessarily about singing, it's more about style and who has a recognizable voice.

As we reported ... folks like Aretha, Whitney, Adele, Michael, Mariah, Freddie made the list, while others like Celine Dion, Cher and even KISS were left off, sending social media into a frenzy.
When it comes to his own snub, he says he doesn't "give a f***" about missing the cut, even taking a dig at RS and mentioning he wanted to buy it at one time.
