I ain't saying that they are the worst. A lot of people just can't listen to their voices.

The Top TenXW

1Geddy LeeGeddy Lee Weinrib, known professionally as Geddy Lee, is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist for the Canadian rock group Rush.

I think Geddy's voice matches well with the progressiveness in Rush's songs but to those who aren't of prog rock or rock in general, I can see why his voice may seem "annoying". - cjWriter1997

An average singer to me.But some say his voice is like mickey mouse - zxm

2Bob DylanBob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

I just think he sounds like a drunk man slurring to a lamppost. - Britgirl

Well not commonly rock singer.Anyway his tributes are better than originals - zxm

3BonoPaul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".
4Billie Joe ArmstrongBillie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

Eh his voice doesn't bug me in the slightest. Yeah he can a bit explicit now and then with his songs but it doesn't really bug me. - BoredJeff02

Sings pretty well.But can't hold a note properly.Voice becomes harsh. - zxm

I am OK with his timbre and he is an OK singer but his vocal technique is not good enough. This, combined with a very limited vocal range, hurts my ears. I can listen to 'American Idiot' from start to finish but on most of the songs I press the stop button before the end. As zxm said, he "can't hold a note properly", and several other things are also annoyng. - Metal_Treasure

I feel somewhat irritated with his voice. But his instrumentals and solos are awesome.

The man himself says he can't sing, but his guitar work makes up for it easily. - cjWriter1997

6Ozzy OsbourneJohn Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath more.

I used to like him because I was told he is the best metal singer (LOL). But when I heard some really great metal singers things changed.
Ozzy - nasal, bad singing with a very tight throat, usually within a 2 octave vocal range. The voice has no power and resonance. - Metal_Treasure
