Top 10 Most Overrated Singers In RockMontyPython Okay, now I'm going to get bashed on... WORTH IT! (Note: I DON'T HATE ANY OF THESE SINGERS THEY ARE ALL TALENTED! )
The Top Ten
Number one? If anything, David Bowie is groundbreaking and deserves his attention. - Swellow
How is Bowie number 1 instead of Chester Bennington?
When he started doing ballet on stage with a dancing crew he ended being a rock star.
Very overratedV 3 Comments
Nothing special about his voice. It's pretty average. - naFrovivuS
I have hated Chester ever since he became Stone Temple Pilot's new vocalist. - NuMetalManiak
This list is sacrilegious - Cheese567
Boring, dull, and insipid. - SwellowV 1 Comment
Should be #1
He is not even the best of his band - Lucretia
I feel as if he overhyped himself way too much.
The thing about Ozzy was how he used his voice not the sound of the voice itself. And he was a great performer and frontman, in my opinion not overrated - rportah
He's so whacked out on narcotics he's bitten off animal heads, and his age has deteriorated his voice. ewww - Swellow
Sings One Note. Badly.
Get your facts straight - his range is 3 octaves, 3 notes. Luciano Pavarotti range is 2 octaves, 2-1/2 notes. I'm not kidding. - Metal_Treasure
He is just a talker - Lucretia
He’s a decent singer, when he talks, it’s awesome. - CostcoHotDogs
I hate Evansence. A lot. - CostcoHotDogs
Completely over-rated, he is not qualified to carry Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, or Elvis Presley's luggage. Rolling Stone magazine had him rated at #18 all time rock singers, which is about right at best.
Well said. Freddie Mercury is good, but I find his voice nondescript. Other classic rock singers possess more unique, erotic, or beautiful voices. Including Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, Elvis Presley, Jon Anderson, Justin Hayward, Ian Gillan, Ozzy Osbourne, Roger Daltrey, Robert Plant, et cetera. - Crwth
Never produced the range on stage that he did in the studio, post 1980 (give or take). People RIDICULOUSLY overestimate his vocal range; I heard one Queen fan claim it was seven octaves. HA! Map it out on a piano. The occasional studio high note, e.g. the bridge in "Under Pressure," does not equate to a commanding range. He did most of his singing in the high baritone range which spanned maybe 2-3 octaves. Last but not least, an overly emotive delivery with occasionally annoying tremolo rather than a sincere delivery with a warm vibrato.
This has to be one of the most ignorant comments. 2-3 octaves? LOL. Freddie's range in the modal register was 4 octaves. With falsetto register it was over 4 octaves. He had an incredible control over his voice. Not to mention his power and projection. - Metal_Treasure
Who added Freddie to this list? Yes, Freddie is praised but he is praised for a reason. This doesn't mean overrated. He deserves the credits. Overrated is somebody who isn't very good but people believe s/he is. - Metal_Treasure
SO over-rated!V 1 Comment
It's a battle but Hetfield is worse.
I don't think he's overrated.
1. He gets credit for his bass skills not for his vocal skills.
2. His voice is naturally high.
His voice kinda sounds funny. But it isn't the worst. - zxm
This list is for overrated singers. Bass playing skills are not related to singing. - Metal_Treasure
He’s pretty good. - CostcoHotDogs
