    Most Annoying Rock Singer (Voice Wise)

    Mine has to be Brian Johnson from AC/DC, he sounds like Donald Duck on Thunderstruck! Now don't get me wrong, AC/DC is my favorite band of all time. I'd have to say that when Bon was lead singer, there music was more apealing to me, but they have had more success with Brian, so maybe im just one who is against the curve....

    No. You are correct. Bon Scott > Brian Johnson. I can't stand "screetchers." I put Brian Johnson up there with the lead singer from Cinderella. Can't stand either of them.

    I love Rush -- those guys are musical geniuses. But I must admit that Getty Lee's voice makes it very hard for me to relax.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Anyone else think that he sounds like the lead singer from Coheed and Cambria?

    Marilyn Manson.

    Worst singer ever.

    Rob Zombie would be a close second.:thumbdown

    I think it's easy to list the screamers- after all, what heavy metal singer isn't trying to sound cursed, demented, or at the very least displeasing to the average adult ear? I mean, that's the point, isn't it?

    Let's consider people who are really trying to "sing", who put all the effort they can into using their voice as a "musical" instrument, but who fail miserably. My list would be:

    From the "My voice is deep and grungy...isn't it cool?" school:
    Scott Stapp
    Brad Roberts

    From the "I can sing really high, but I'm not a girl." school:
    Geddy Lee
    Steve Perry

    From the "I am wrapped in a blanket, snuggling by the fireplace." school:
    Jewel
    Sarah McLachlan
    This list could go on forever.

    From the "I am an effete intellectual, who feels more pain than you can imagine." school:
    Fiona Apple
    Scott Stapp...again. What an idiot.

    Back in the day I was listening to After the Gold Rush and my father said "That guy sounds like he has a stomach ache"

    20 years later I get in his car and he's listening to Harvest Moon.. go figure.

    That guy from Psychedelic Furs and Love Spit love.

    At one time, I would have said the late Wesley Willis, but at least his out-of-tune stylings had some comedic merit.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
