Hardest Songs to Sing


The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen

Best song ever. Queen is the most amazing, talented band ever. There wouldn't be classic rock without them

2 Parallels - As I Lay Dying
3 Painkiller - Judas Priest

This is very difficult start to finish - very fast and high pitched singing, shrieks, screams, and especially his perfect sustain of about 18-19 seconds at the end. - Metal_Treasure

4 The Air that I Breathe - All that Remains
5 This Darkened Heart - All That Remains
6 This Calling - All that Remains
7 Given Up - Linkin Park

Try doing the 17 second scream in the middle - spiderskull98

8 Child in Time - Deep Purple

It's over 10 minutes long with tempo changes and Ian Gillan screams for about 2 minutes at the end (after 8:00). These are golden screams. - Metal_Treasure

9 I Will Always Love You - Whitney Houston

Definitely one of the hardest song to sing.

10 My Last Sunrise - Demons & Wizards

Difficult because it requires high degree of versatility - there are frequent and sudden switches/transitions, and it needs both smooth angelic soft voice and powerful demonic harsh voice. The emotion is also difficult to replicate. Screams are so melodic.
The song structure is progressive - it has several parts that are not repeated (it doesn't even have a chorus). Great job Hansi Kürsch! - Metal_Treasure

The Newcomers

? Schemes of the Tails - Melt-Banana
? Vision of Love - Mariah Carey

The hardrst song by female!

The Contenders

11 Chop Suey! - System of a Down
12 Abigail - King Diamond

This dude has the craziest falsetto I've ever heard and a vocal range of 4+ octaves. - Metal_Treasure

13 Keeper of the Seven Keys - Helloween

The song is about 14 minutes long with difficult vocal lines but the most impressive thing is the series of perfect sustains after 12:30, one of them is about 18 seconds long. Pure eargasm. Great job Michael Kiske! - Metal_Treasure

14 Crawling - Linkin Park
15 B.Y.O.B. - System Of A Down
16 Twist - Korn

Why is this so low? This is impossible to sing! - NikBrusk

17 And Then There Was Silence - Blind Guardian

14 minutes of epic singing (I prefer the 2012 version). Hansi Kürsch left his throat on these complex and overlapping vocal harmonies - you hear a choir but there's no choir, he's the only singer. The song is very complex with symphonic arrangements and many tempo changes but it's mostly fast and energetic. - Metal_Treasure

18 Hounds - Savatage
19 Face The Day - From Ashes To New
20 Rap God - Eminem
