Top 5 Worst Voices of Rock

I think we all have a good idea of what it takes to be a horrible lead singer in a rock band. The most important attributes that top my list are a bad voice, crappy songs and being really unaware of how sucky you are. It makes it even worse when these singers have great bands behind them and they still seem to blow ass. But in my opinion, live shows are the biggest eye-opener for the true music listener. OK, Here’s the list people…

#5 Bob Dylan (1980-present): I really do love Bobby, but his voice was shot by the end of the '70s. The drinking, the pills and filterless cigarettes defiantly took a toll on his legendary pipes. Anything he did live after the 1980s pretty much makes my ears bleed. Check out this live performance of “Forever Young” from a 1981 concert. It sounds like his voice is just giving up in the middle of every note. Poor Judas…


#4 Vince Neil: One of the worst metal singers of the ‘80s. Period. I know that there are some really bad hair bands with even worse lead singers, but Vince was the leader of one of the most popular metal bands of the ‘80s. I don’t have a problem with the Motley Crue studio stuff, it’s his live vocal performances that drive me nuts. Every time Vince hit the stage in the ‘80s his lungs started pumping out some glam garbage. Take a listen to this 1983 live version of “Live Wire” at the Us Festival. It might be one of the worst things I’ve ever heard. When Vince starts screaming “Live Wire” to get the crowd pumped up he sounds like a cracked-out version of the Ricola guy. Check it…


#3 Fred Durst: I understand that this dude doesn’t really sing, but all of his cheesy rap lyrics and crappy song titles easily puts him in my top 5. When Limp Bizkit came out in the late ‘90s I almost hated them more than the Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync. Fred was the main reason why. I understand you wanna break stuff, but there is no need to write crappy songs about it. Whiteboys from Florida need to make music no more. That goes for Justin Timberlake as well. Here’s an annoying classic…


#2 Chad Kroeger: Did you know that Nickelback has sold over 21 million albums worldwide? What the F?! I guess I need to get a chick haircut and start writing songs about eagles soaring through the sky. I think this guy listened to too much Alice In Chains in the ‘90s.

I did see Chad live in concert once and it was one of the worst experiences of my life. I realized during the show that every single song he has ever written is the same. The similarities between "How You Remind Me" and "Someday" are insane. Listen…

"How You Remind Me"



#1 Scott Stapp: No explanations. This dude just blows. Here’s Scott butchering a Doors classic at Woodstock 99…
