Top Ten Most Overrated Metal SingersIronSabbathPriest
The Contenders: Page 2
He isn't a metal singer. Never been. - Metal_Treasure
He sold out. He made a song with Ke$ha years ago.
Either overrated or overhated, maybe both. Most non extreme metal fans and non metalheads hate them, most extreme metal fans love him. - Lucretia
He's both underrated and overrated. Outside the metal world he's underrated, but he's getting overrated compared to singers within metal. He's currently #17 on the list of top metal singers where he's above more better singers than him. Not saying he's a bad singer or anything, it's just there are far better metal singers than him.
He doesn't sound as good live, but he has some good harsh vocals. I like him a lot - ryanrimmel
Of course, there are many better vocalists than him... Most of the people just love him because of the way he looks.
Bruce is talented, but he can't beat Ronnie Dio, Rob Halford, and King Diamond.
So overrated. Corey Taylor and Howard Jones are way better
Iron Maiden was good, but yeah he is overrated, good as he is - Lucretia
Don't get me wrong, he's a great vocalist. But to be honest, I'm astonished at how many people think he's the "greatest metal vocalist of all time." I disagree, and I think there are a lot of other good metal vocalists that deserve more attention than him - Shake_n_Bake13
In most of Slayer's songs he sounds like he's fast talking and that's why I like only a few of Slayer's songs. - Delata
Honestly, I don't see how Slayer or Tom is in any way overrated. James Hatfield & Dave Mustaine are twice as overrated if you ask me. - ViitalShadow
He isn't very overrated to be honest, - Lucretia
I don't get how he's overrated.
He's not overrated.
Seriously. Can't TheTopTens be more serious with their lists for once?
Hansi is actually underrated. I am pretty sure Hansi was added to this list by a certain troll / metal hater (looking at you, visitor/anonymous troll). Every metal fan on this site knows this vapid troll. - Metal_Treasure
He's actually underrated.
He's not really overrated to be honest.
I don't get how Hansi's overrated. Blind Guardian was never popular to begin with. - Aragorn98
I know a lot of metalheads like Mayhem, but they only had a few obscure EXTREMELY lo-fi demos with Dead. The main reason he's loved is for his supposed crazy live stunts, which most metalheads had probably never seen. Dead was great, but people need to stop saying he was the best metal vocalist just because everyone else does.
Dead only made music for a few years, he started very young and died at 22. What he made was good for black metal. - Lucretia
Three Bays Grace is rock... - Lucretia
