While Nirvana's a good band and Kurt's good at song writing he wasn't the best vocally however he was better than well Scott Weiland...
I think Kurt should have been higher on this list. I think he was an awesome singer/song writer.
He was don't get me wrong but he's not number one material in my eyes.
5Adam GontierAdam Wade Gontier is a Canadian musician and songwriter. He is the lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter for Saint Asonia, but is best known as the former lead singer, rhythm guitarist and main songwriter of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace.

Not fan of his vocals they sound so whiny...
