The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Trent ReznorMichael Trent Reznor, known professionally as Trent Reznor, is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, and film score composer. He is known for his intense music videos.

Trent Reznor is the most powerful vocalist. He has such raw emotion in everything. Hurt is an emotionally haunting song to listen to, March of the Pigs is completely raw aggression, and Closer is a painfully disturbing song vocally as well. Trent has such emotion. And in general just rules

So emotional! Whether he's singing about suicide, love, politics, or sex, he really knows how to sell it! He can whisper, he can scream, and his falsetto is beautiful! Trent Reznor is a perfect vocalist! - AngryByrd

NIN was HUGE in the 90s, at least for middle schoolers, maybe high schoolers?
