Top 10 Weakest Singing Voices in Rock and MetalMetal_Treasure
The Top Ten
The major problem was that for some time he was not aware of his limitations as a singer that's why on early records he often doesn't hit the right note and couldn't stay in tune. I think he realized his voice was pretty thin and on the last records he stayed within his vocal range, and leaves the more difficult parts to his band mates (e.g. Jayy von Monroe sings the chorus of "I am Not in Love Anymore", and Fallon Vendetta performs the more sentimental parts on their last album). However, his screaming/more aggressive vocals are pretty good, he seems to only have problems with quieter or poppier singing. - Martin_Canine
He's really improved since Sinners are Winners. "I Hate Every F***ing One" is a good example. - EliHbk
Very often he just speaks (Dave Mustaine of Megadeth does the same but at least Dave sounds powerful when he snarls) - Metal_Treasure
Yes, he often speaks, and it makes me wonder, how can so many people like this kind of music...
@somekindofaguy: like with several artists on the list, their approach is all about artistic vision and songwriting rather than their singing ability. Also, I think the lack of a strong singing voice can still make you a good vocalist if you know your limitations and use your voice fitting to the music. - Martin_Canine
No this guy has one of the greatest voices in the world
It's not that great, but just like Dylan, who doesn't like the Stones? His voice isn't that bad actually, not as bad as Bob Dylan's.
"No this guy has one of the greatest voices in the world"
If he has one of the greatest voices according to you then how would you describe Michael Kiske/Bruce Dickinson/Hansi Kürsch/Tobias Sammet/Ronnie James Dio/FReddy Mercury/Ian Gillan's voice?
No thanks, not the best. - EliHbk
I wish Rush had a different singer. Because everything else this band does is more than perfect.
But Geddy's got very good singing instincts and musicality - he doesn't sing off-key and he moves properly from note to note even when he sings fast. The guy just wasn't born with a good singing voice. - Metal_Treasure
Example - when he sings the line "Just like the Pied Piper..." (Symphony of Destruction).
But his voice's got power when he snarls/growls. - Metal_Treasure
I think of Kurt Cobain had the voice of an angel it would kind of destroy what his artistic visions were all along. Same with his work on the guitar. He's no virtuoso. The sound was all about apathy and rage, and he embodied all of this with extraordinary honesty. - Martin_Canine
The power of his voice is OK but the voice often cracks even on studio recordings - Metal_Treasure
That's what I like about his voice. It's honest and raw. It may not be vocally impressive but it isn't fake sounding or weak. - cjWriter1997
His voice is so weak. He sounds board when he sings. I know this might kinda sound like a childish insult to some people, but he honestly sounds kinda like a woman (which can't sing) to me sometimes, and this is not just a blind insult just because I don't like Coldplay, that's my honest thought. He also has a hard time expressing emotions in his singing. - RogerWatersfan1999
These are his most popular songs and his voice fails to impress me - Space Oddity, Ziggy Stardust - Metal_Treasure
Not the weakest and not the worst voice but metal music needs different types of singers - singers that offer more than his voice can offer. Actually most of his songs aren't metal songs. - Metal_Treasure
Not very good. - EliHbk
He's a OK singer with OK power - his problems are due mostly to lack of vocal technique which makes his voice sound weak at times (he can't hold a note properly, and similar). - Metal_Treasure
Like many of the singers on here, the greatness of her music and voice lies not in her singing ability, which is pretty thin, but in it coming off as honest and completely authentic. On songs as rough and minimalistic as hers, a powerful soul voice wouldn't fit at all. I don't think Christina Aguilera or Aretha Franklin should record songs such as "The Divorce Song", although they are better vocalists, because their flawlessness would ruin the song's mood. - Martin_Canine
I feel like Liz Phair is the creative type. She may not be the most skilled, but she has a lot of creativity and originality in her music, music artists like Kurt Cobain and her belong in this category. - AnimeDrawer
I wouldn't call his voice weak it's very powerful not as powerful as Mercury or Ronnie James Dio but still powerful. - SomePersonYouHate
