Worst Metal Singers
The Top Ten
Andy Biersack? More like Andy Ballsack!
Don't judge me, but his voice is actually good. I’ve heard way worse. - PhoenixAura81
Andy Biersack.More like Andy Ballsack.This guy has got to be the worst metal singer.Actually I take that back because Black Veil Brides are not Metal they are just some stupid Screamo band.Andy Ballsack had the whiniest voice ever.His voice has improved but not that good.His screams are horrible even Death Metal singer have better screams then that.-DarkBoi-X3 Comments
I'm no death metal enthusiast, Fred Durst is also a bad singer... I prefer Underground 80's punk - williamb
What does Death Metal have to do with anything? Fred Durst is in a nu metal band. - RogerMcBaloney
One of the guys who gave metal singers a bad name. Moreover, his singing style isn't metal - he's a rapper. Same for the rap metal / nu metal he sings - gave metal a bad name. For me this band isn't even metal - they play rap songs with some metal arrangements from time to time. Their songs sound like metal covers of rap songs but they are still rap. A more correct name of this subgenre would be metal rap (and not rap metal because it's not metal). Conclusion: Fred Durst isn't a metal singer. - Metal_Treasure
The most white rapper of all time
His voice sounds like a cross between Yoko Ono and Andy Biersack.
His voice as well as his band was awful. - PhoenixAura81
To be honest he's not that bad
I know he is dead, but he still deserves number 1. - 445956
AHH AHH WIND CHIMES ARE GAY WIND CHIMES ARE GAY WIND CHIMES ARE GAY
Bad singer and kind of creepy. - Cyri
Not metal - DarkBoi-X
I never considered him metal and he never claimed that but regarding his singing ability - I'm not impressed. - Metal_Treasure
He puts on a good show, but the guy just can't sing in my opinion. - ryanrimmel1 Comment
My favorite vocalist ever
Garbage singer with possibly the most whiny voice I've ever heard.
Awful.Just awful. - DarkBoi-X
When someone said, "He was Good back In the Day", I never laughed so hard in my entire life. He was a born terrible singer especially his duck vocals on Rust in Peace was so annoying that I never gave that album a second listen - no, that's the only reason why I never went back to listen to Megadeth.
He should have kept to the guitar and hired another singer. Seriously.
He WAS good back in the day. Compare his vocals on Rust in Peace to Super Collider or Dystopia. He's not the same singer he once was, but he can still shred better than anyone in the game - ryanrimmel
He was and still is awesome! - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX
Only respected and liked because he died years ago. He's getting the Jimmy Sullivan treatment. - TheMETALgiant
Worst Black Sabbath singer ever
His voice fits his songs better than others. On the Live Evil album dio's voice is just to much for Ozzy songs. And also his voice is unique, even though he may not be properly trained like others and his octave range is only around 2.5-3 - SoldierOfFortune
His voice is pretty weak to be called metal. I don't like his voice. But I like some of his songs. I mean the singing style. - zxm
He was in Little Nicky. enough said...1 Comment
TEE HEE - DarkBoi-X
It's like they ran out of bad singers after 11. - AdamDestructorJr.
Ronnie James Dio is a great singer. Please do not vote for him on this list as he really doesn't even deserve to be on this list whatsoever to begin with, he's one of the greatest singers ever in my opinion. - Element119
Definitely doesn't deserve to be at 9th place right now whatsoever. Please disregard his placement here and listen to him yourself and see what an amazingly talented singer he really is. - Element119
This is definitely a troll item. Ignore it. Dio is a great singer and personality, with powerful and expressive voice, and remarkable vocal technique. - Metal_Treasure5 Comments
He is the epitome of brutal growls.
Most boring death metal singer ever
I dislike Nu-metal but he's clearly talented - JackTheOnion
He's good though - wrests
Sounds like a chicken being rammed in the ass
No way. Randy Blythe kicks ass! Lamb of God kicks ass in general and that is a scientific fact!
His vocals make me want to barf in his face!
NOW I’M MAD! - PhoenixAura81
HOW DARE U PUT BRUCE DICKINSON ON THIS LIST! The dude is an amazing metal singer and singer in general! He also puts on a killer show! I mean he has also been on another one of these list that say he's one of the top ten BEST metal singers of all time! This makes 0 since considering he's the lead singer of one of the greatest metal bands EVER and has such a great singing ability where he could basically sing anything he wants to sing! These list have been dumb before but this is basically as dumb as it gets! -Avery
His voice has dropped off massively since the early 90s. With Mike Portnoy went his remaining vocal passion. - AdamDestructorJr.
He’s really good. - PhoenixAura81
Well, not a BAD singer in DT, but in his solo album "elements of persuasion"... I mean, I can't even... Yeah.
Doesn't deserve to be this high on this list though.
His voice is really annoying...1 Comment
The comment below- so basically, if I have a different taste than you I am instantly wrong. Man you don't really help the stigma of metalheads being close minded...
Had to vote just to be able to comment...He IS the best thrash metal vocalist and if you dislike his voice you clearly aren't are thrash metal fan
Are 'pirates' supposed to have good voices? - AdamDestructorJr.
Never heard of the guy but I agree with the visitor.In fact he probably is one. - DarkBoi-X
Lol, he looks like a hobbit in that pic.
1.He's an amazing singer
2.Not Metal - DarkBoi-X
I think he is not the singer people make him out to be, I would never say he’d Bad but there’s just better stuff out there
The fact that he can sing and shred at the same time is enough reason for me to like him! - ryanrimmel
Corpsegrinder has some good growls... I understand that it is an acquired taste, but you can't deny that he is talented. This is coming from someone who doesn't really like Cannibal Corpse. I admire the individual talents, like Alex Webster's bass wizardry, but I think they go too far sometimes.
Not that good in my opinion. But the rest of Cannibal Corpse have undeniable talent. If it weren't for the fans, I wouldn't dislike the band as much.
How tf is corpsegrinder a "bad" singer? Do you guys ever check out any other death metal bands? He has much better growling and screaming than other death metal vocalists do. The only problem with him is that his lyrics aren't really clear enough to understand but who gives a fxxx? He's still a good singer
All the Mastodon singers are great. Shush. - AdamDestructorJr.
His harsh vocals are great and powerful - ryanrimmel
I disagree with this. He has a great voice, and doing that while drumming is pretty impressive and not a lot of people can do what he does - ryanrimmel
Wasted what little talent he had on being a garbage person making horrible noises.
This guy is plain pathetic
Phil is a racist
What is with these trolls though. - DarkBoi-X
I think it isn't trolls (even though I don't find him bad). Slayer is #2 on Good Bands with Bad Vocalists. - Alkadikce
This guy doesn't hit a single note
