Whenever Jeff sings melodically it sounds like an angel's voice. What he can do with his voice is phenomenal! I'm saddened to see that nobody knows about him. Especially fans of nu metal.

What? Ozzy underrated? Come on, he is actually the most OVERrated metal vocalist - Ozzy is the most popular metal singer but everybody knows that his vocal skills are (to put it politely) quite mediocre. That's the definition of OVERrated and not underrated. - Metal_Treasure

there are so many better singers than ozzy but his vocal range is pretty good and it fits the type of music he sings he is way better than david lee roth singing wise - crazypeoplearehere

Ozzy has the coolest sounding voice in rock history.

79 Dave Mustaine - Megadeth Dave Mustaine - Megadeth more.

Lets be honest here - he's a great guitarist, songwriter and lyricist but singer - no. He's not underrated as a singer, come on. Underrated singers are those who are better than Dickinson and even Halford but usually hang way lower than Mustaine on the lists of the top/best/greatest metal singers. - Metal_Treasure

Really good voice fit perfectly with thrash how can Mr Shadow is here when he is one of the most overrated singer

Great voice what Mr emo doing first he suck so much how he can be underrated when he one of the most overrated singer
