They have released 15 studio albums, and their biggest hits are Symphony of Destruction, Holy more.

I don't mind Dave Mustaine's voice that much. But his singing style is very good. Even many singers like - Geddy Lee, Billie Joe Armstrong, Ozzy Osbourne have bad voices. But they sometimes sang with the rhythm, good style. But Dave can't do that. - zxm

Dave Mustaine's vocals sound so whiny and rushed in all honesty. - BoredJeff02

Garbage band. - CostcoHotDogs

Ronnie Radke's vocals are pretentious, overly whiny and obnoxious like every other emo singer. - BoredJeff02

I like Falling in Reverse, but Ronnie's voice is just strange.
Oh, and his rapping isn't good.
His screaming is just as bad. - Kiyomi

The Contenders

They're practically a dead horse at this point... so I won't carry on. - BoredJeff02

The vocalist sounds really bad... to be honest. - BoredJeff02

They are not bad, just not very good. - Kiyomi

If a tree falls in the forest, and no one is around to hear it, you've found the perfect place for a Nickelback concert. - Sop

Chad Kroeger isn't that bad of a singer I've ever heard worse vocals from Cannibal Corpse. - BoredJeff02
