Top Ten Most Overrated Metal SingersIronSabbathPriest
The Top Ten
Listen to ozzy's voice makes me wanna puke its not beautiful its not pitched its not strong it has not anything. But listen to ronnie james dio's voice it so perfect you want to cry
Listen to the song solitude by Black Sabbath then you might change your mind - Sabbath
He literally guest stared on a couple of Disney Channel shows. If that's not selling out then I don't know what is.
Ronnie James Dio is a better vocalist, but Ozzy's style fit Black Sabbath more. I think so, anyway. - MetarockV 9 Comments
Not the most overrated but one of them
He sounds weird in most of his songs.
Some songs he doesn't even sing in. He just talks. - Sabbath
He sounds like he's having a lisp in the chorus to Symphony of Destruction.
I'm not a fan of his vocals. He just sounds like he's trying to sound tough.V 2 Comments
I'm not a fan of his vocal style. As if he's trying to act hard and tough. - IronSabbathPriest
Corey Taylor is one of few people on this list who deserves the attention and respect they receive. He's one of the best vocalists over the past 20 years.
They all try to act hard and tough. They all think they're Eddie Vedder, and they're not.
I think he's starting to get boring after all these years. Sorry but I'm starting to lose interest in him. - Mumbizz01
He is awesome - JolteonIsAwesome
"Yeah" - James Hetfield - Brobusky
Underrated - GreenDayFan21V 2 Comments
Not a metal singer. - IronSabbathPriest
More like a metal rapper.
Metal rapper is something impossible. Rappers have no business in metal. - Metal_Treasure
Rap Rock Rap Metal Nu Metal same thing jesus christ
Ha ha, he is a rapper. not a metal vocalist. - zxm
Not sure if this pathetic wannabe-tough-guy loser actually thinks he can sing, or if he's aware that he sucks and is just in it for the money. He basically got famous because the guitar guy in Pantera got shot
Phil Anselmo is a racist. He's only famous because he was in Pantera. Not a good vocalist
I liked his vocals in Cemetery Gates, but outside of that, eh... - Metarock
I love his vocals! - ryanrimmelV 3 Comments
What is Jonathan Davis doing here? are you people high?
I like him, because I love Korn - jack2244
I don't think he sings metal so why pay attention to him. - Metal_Treasure
Yup. - Disasterpiece
Wouldn’t say he’s terrible, but his style is barely metal and he just is overrated.
He has a good voice, but when he does those unnecessary "AH AH AHS" in the middle of verses it brings his music down. I like Disturbed though - ryanrimmel
Not a metal singer.
Should be higher.
Go see him at #5 on the list "Top Metal Singers". His singing style isn't even metal. By the way, do you think he sings metal? I don't. That's called overrated. - Metal_Treasure
Breaking Ben is one of my favorite bands, and he sounds great on the record, but if you look up videos of them live, his voice is HORRIFIC
Compared to artists like Prince and Ray Charles (different genres but same principle), Mitch had made almost zero impact in the music industry, even after his untimely death. Not only did he have extremely limited vocal range, his lows were horrible unless he was cupping the mic, especially during live performances.
Definitely overrated nowadays by scene kids due to his death. His death was unfortunate, but that doesn't change the fact that he was a godawful vocalist with zero skill or technique.
Metalcore is the only bad type of metal I know about. - emilk
I love Death, but to me, Chuck didn't create death metal. He even admitted it himself. In my opinion, Possessed are the true creators of death metal.
Not in my opinion but - Lucretia
I can semi-tolerate Death, there’s, like, three songs I like, but my god do I hate his vocals. - CostcoHotDogs
I like Children of Bodom, but I'm not a fan of the monotone vocals of melodic death metal bands. Either sing properly or if you're going to growl, growl with some aggressive music. Enough said. - IronSabbathPriest
He isn't a metal singer. Never been. - Metal_Treasure
He sold out. He made a song with Ke$ha years ago.
