Worst Rock Voices

The Top TenXW

1BonoPaul 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".

How could you put one of the greatest lead singers of all time on here? HOW COULD YOU? And yes, I love U2. - RiverClanRocks

U2 sucks, Pride (In The Name Of Love) makes me want to tear my eardrums out, Sunday Bloody Sunday is atrocious, and With Or Without You is incredibly whiny and unbearable. Whenever I hear Bono's voice I immediately turn off my radio because I'd rather listen to nothing and absolute silence than his nails-on-a-chalkboard voice.

How dare you Bono is one of today's best singers! - Cheese567

He's such a smug worthless human being so full of himself. He has an ugly voice.

2Rod StewartRoderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

What rod Stewart has a great voice. Except for his disco. His folk music is good though.

Perhaps a unique voice that's for sure but not a bad voice definitely when you let people like Beiber on this list

This list is a joke. All theses singers perhaps with the exception of Rod Stewart has GEART voices and have the BEST rock voices. - TTM

3Jon Bon Jovi John Francis Bongiovi, Jr., known as Jon Bon Jovi, is an American singer-songwriter, record producer, philanthropist, and actor, best known as the founder and frontman of rock band Bon Jovi, which was formed in 1983.

No talent, terrible voice, crappy songs.

Jon used to have a great voice... now he sings like he is constipated with a strange accent...

It's called aging. But this list is about singers who have never had good voices. - Metal_Treasure

5Bob DylanBob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

Dylan kicks ass, but for his lyrics, not his voice. His harmonica is awesome too. Hang on! What on earth are Mick Jagger and Robert PLant doing here?

Why is steve perry axl rose and bono are on the top they are the best singers alive!

Bob Dylan has one of the greatest voices in folk music, maybe an excetion with Syd Barrett (solo) and neil young.

6Axl RoseWilliam Bruce Rose Jr.,better known as 'Axl Rose', was born on February 6, 1962, in Lafayette, Indiana, USA. He Is the founder and lead singer of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. He is a celebrated but controversial figure in the world of rock.

FYI Axl Rose does by far not have the worst voice ever Justin Bieber has the worst voice ever also your trashing all the classics and to all the people that agree I don't like any of you because he is one of the biggest voices in the world ROCK ON GUNS N ROSES - michaelwalton

Weird... Axl has an amazing voice, but it irritates the hell out of me. I can't understand why legends such as Robert Plant or especially Freddie Mercury are even on this list..? What?!

Always switch off the song when his voice comes on

I can't stand his whine...

He's actually not that bad, overrated but not worthy of worst. - BoredJeff02

Bjork and freddie have great voices

Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

His voice is bloody amazing and you can dislike elvis Presley as much as you like but in the end you know he basically brought rock to us in pure form.

This guy is the best rock star I have ever seen

This is the greatest performer of all time

The Newcomers

?Lou Reed

Great, great, great songwriter... Probably the best after Dylan, Cohen & Lennon, but his voice isn't good at all... It fits perfectly on VU but if Mercury, the best voice of all time, is here, so Lou should be here too

The Contenders

11Chris DaughtryChristopher Adam "Chris" Daughtry is an American musician and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the rock band Daughtry and as the fourth-place contestant on the fifth season of American Idol.

Tries to sound hard, but does not come off as bluesy or awesome. Instead, more like the sounds you make while you go to the washroom.

all of these singers have great voices on the list apart from Nancy and Ann Wilson and Chris Daughtry - idolangelx13

let us kill the one who made this list. but this one does suck - ronluna

12Steve PerryStephen Ray "Steve" Perry is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is known as the lead singer of the rock band Journey during their most commercially successful periods from 1977 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998.

What is wrong with you guys, are you jealous you can't range your voice like "The Voice"? Best singer if all time!

He was okay but his replacement was better which is actually kinda funny

Great singer but Journey's music videos suck crap but the songs rock

Perry gets my vote as worst on this list. Very annoying voice but why isn't Dave Matthews on this list? Matthews sounds like he has rocks in his mouth.

13Hyde

Uh this isn't best singer list. Someone got confused lol

If this is Hyde Takarai, then I disagree. His voice range is so wide, he can sing any music genre and he's even better live. His songs are great. definitely shouldn't be on the list. He sings for L'arc~en~Ciel, just listen to them and you'll see.

14Bruce Springsteen

Springsteen is to singing, what Stallone is to acting, a wooden Indian, with no vocal range, a monotone...

Sounds like he is on the can, with constipation.

15Robert PlantRobert Anthony Plant is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

What? I don't even... How did Plant get on that list? This is ridiculous. Is there some way to report this crapy list?

Strange how some of the best singers of all time are in the top 20 - Rocker00

Seriously Guys Zeppelin. Now you must be kidding

He is amazing. Are you jealous of his awesomeness? - Music_Lover123

Freddie's voice was so magnificent! Way too good for rock, per se, because it's not beauty that they regard as 'great, ' but growling/shrieking, which Freddie just did not do. He did everything gorgeously! His voice was the voice of God! It was absolute perfection! No words can describe the greatness of the most phenomenal Freddie Mercury! THE BEST EVER!

Freddie Mercury had a good unique voice to Rock not a terrible one whoever added him probably has barely listened to good Rock music. - BoredJeff02

Why is he even on this list. Freddie Mercury had a PHENOMENAL voice.

Maybe he's on here because he's gay? - Music_Lover123

18Gackt

Uh... Yeah his pop songs aren't great but when he was in Malice Mizer, he was a God and his voice was wonderful.

19Sinead O'ConnorSinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra.

No, she has one of the best female voices, and this is coming from someone who dislikes the Irish folk music. - Swellow

20Ann WilsonAnn Dustin Wilson is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the hard rock band Heart.

One of the FINEST female voices in Rock. PERIOD!
