Top Ten Songs That Would Have Been Better if They Were Instrumentals

It doesn't mean I hate the vocals in the songs or the singers voices in general, except some few exceptions. I just think the songs would have sounded better as instrumental songs.

The Top Ten

Stimulated - Tyga Stimulated - Tyga Cover Art
Bohemian Rhapsody - Lil Meerkat Bohemian Rhapsody - Lil Meerkat Cover Art
Wake Up Dead - Megadeth Wake Up Dead - Megadeth Cover Art

I love Megadeth, and I do think Mustaine's vocals can be necessary at times to add an effect in his songs, but for the most part he isn't a great vocalist. Still a legendary guitar player though. - yungstirjoey666

Agree with the comment of Dave Mustaine being a poor vocalist so it makes sense to have some Megadeth songs on here especially from Dystopia where the lyrics I have seen heavily criticized as well.

Don't Look to the Eyes of a Stranger - Iron Maiden Don't Look to the Eyes of a Stranger - Iron Maiden Cover Art

I like several songs from the Blaze Bayley era (and it's not like Bruce's vocals were stellar on No Prayer for the Dying either), but his vocals are clearly the weakest part of any song from that time. - truckturner

Interesting, I actually think the repetition here is effective because it alters a bit and introduces us to one of the band's best solos, whereas in The Angel and the Gambler, there is no reason for it. - Alkadikce

I don't think it needs a different vocalist just needs a less repetitive chorus - christangrant

This is a random comment no one said anything about it be better with Bruce singing it, the comments are all about the chorus - germshep24

Repent - Yngwie Malmsteen Repent - Yngwie Malmsteen Cover Art

I don't think Yngwie is a really bad singer but he's not that good either (especially compared to the vocalists he's hired) but his vocals do not dimish his talent guitar playing talent at all. - christangrant

Shredded Humans - Cannibal Corpse Shredded Humans - Cannibal Corpse Cover Art

InB4 some adds more CC songs just because "the vocals are AWFUL" even though their supposed to sound like that - christangrant

The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner - Iron Maiden The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner - Iron Maiden Cover Art

I start to think we two have the absolute opposite taste in Iron Maiden. This is my 14th favorite and the vocals are part of the reason why it is there. If I had to pick an Iron Maiden song for this list, it would be The Duellists. The chorus is pretty weak and the other vocal parts don't add to the song either. I guess it can't be an instrumental because the album already has one. - Alkadikce

Amsterdam - Van Halen Amsterdam - Van Halen Cover Art
Living Wreck - Deep Purple Living Wreck - Deep Purple Cover Art
Angel from the Coast - Thin Lizzy Angel from the Coast - Thin Lizzy Cover Art

The Contenders

Whiplash - Metallica Whiplash - Metallica Cover Art
Bleed - Meshuggah Bleed - Meshuggah Cover Art

Is this a death metal song? - Userguy44

Kim - Eminem Kim - Eminem Cover Art

I am litterally listening to that righ t now lol

No. Eminem's screamed horror-core styled rapping is what triggers the strong emotions expressed in the song even further - Joeljohns249

Mechanix - Megadeth Mechanix - Megadeth Cover Art

Listen the sample if you wanna know why 😂 - Userguy44

Hammer Smashed Face - Cannibal Corpse
Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve Bittersweet Symphony - The Verve Cover Art
Requiem - Bathory Requiem - Bathory Cover Art
In My Mind - Dynoro In My Mind - Dynoro Cover Art

Oh yeah, the high pitched vocals are annoyingly repetitive while the beat is pretty good. This should have an instrumental version. - Userguy44

This should have instruments good but needs something more

7 Years - Lukas Graham 7 Years - Lukas Graham Cover Art
Bada Boom - Cash Cash Bada Boom - Cash Cash Cover Art
Barbie Girl - Aqua Barbie Girl - Aqua Cover Art

Nah...if you already hate this song, it would sound even more horrible with a overly repetitive nursery rhyme-like instrumental - Joeljohns249

Wonderwall - Oasis Wonderwall - Oasis Cover Art

The vocals just drown my mind out. - Userguy44

Holy Wars... the Punishment Due - Megadeth Holy Wars... the Punishment Due - Megadeth Cover Art

Disagree sure the intro is epic, put the first verse of this song is just as epic, the rest of the lyrics don't hold up to that first verse though - germshep24

Amerika (English Version) - Rammstein

I prefer the guitar solo in this than the album version.

The Oath - Mercyful Fate The Oath - Mercyful Fate Cover Art

The sample is the intro though.
