Top 10 Rock Singers Who's Voices are Disliked by a Lot of People

I ain't saying that they are the worst. A lot of people just can't listen to their voices.

The Top Ten

1 Geddy Lee Geddy Lee Geddy Lee Weinrib, known professionally as Geddy Lee, is a Canadian musician, singer and songwriter best known as the lead vocalist, bassist, and keyboardist for the Canadian rock group Rush.

I think Geddy's voice matches well with the progressiveness in Rush's songs but to those who aren't a fan of prog rock or rock in general, I can see why his voice may seem "annoying". - cjWriter1997

I personally don't get bothered by his voice. At least he can actually sing unlike Dave Mustaine of Megadeth (different genres but same principle).

An average singer to me.But some say his voice is like mickey mouse - zxm

But I still love him - Boi

2 Bob Dylan Bob Dylan Bob Dylan is an American singer-songwriter, artist and writer . he won the Nobel Prize for literature in 2016 .

I just think he sounds like a drunk man slurring to a lamppost. - Britgirl

He can't sing. That's all.

Not a rock singer; he is a folk singer.

Well not commonly rock singer.Anyway his tributes are better than originals - zxm

3 Bono Bono Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer-songwriter, musician, venture capitalist, businessman, and philanthropist. His original nickname was Bono Vox which means "big voice".
4 Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong Billie Joe Armstrong is an American musician, singer, songwriter and actor who is best known as the lead vocalist, primary songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which he co-founded with Mike Dirnt.

Eh his voice doesn't bug me in the slightest. Yeah he can a bit explicit now and then with his songs but it doesn't really bug me.

He's awesome though - Boi

Sings pretty well.But can't hold a note properly.Voice becomes harsh. - zxm

I am OK with his timbre and he is an OK singer but his vocal technique is not good enough. This, combined with a very limited vocal range, hurts my ears. I can listen to 'American Idiot' from start to finish but on most of the songs I press the stop button before the end. As zxm said, he "can't hold a note properly", and several other things are also annoyng. - Metal_Treasure

5 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine David Scott "Dave" Mustaine (born September 13, 1961) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, actor and author. Mustaine is best known as a pioneer in Thrash Metal, being the former lead guitarist of Metallica before his dismissal in 1983, leading to finding and becoming the front man of his own more.

I feel somewhat irritated with his voice. But his instrumentals and solos are awesome.

The man himself says he can't sing, but his guitar work makes up for it easily. - cjWriter1997

This dude just can't sing, he even admits it himself. - Aragorn98

Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath.

Stinks on ice. Always has.

I used to like him because I was told he is the best metal singer (LOL). But when I heard some really great metal singers things changed.
Ozzy - nasal, bad singing with a very tight throat, usually within a 2 octave vocal range. The voice has no power and resonance. - Metal_Treasure

Prince of darkness

friend of rat which is hanging over his shoulder - zxm

I 've never had problems with his voice. - Metal_Treasure

8 Liam Gallagher Liam Gallagher William John Paul "Liam" Gallagher is an English musician, singer, and songwriter. He rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye.

His brother's voice is lot more better than him.He's just arrogant - zxm

16 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

His voice's great - zxm
