Worst Rock Voices

The Top Ten

1 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".

What the hell is wrong with you gus?! Bono is amazing. At least he's better than what Justin Beiber is selling.

U2 sucks, Pride (In The Name Of Love) makes me want to tear my eardrums out, Sunday Bloody Sunday is atrocious, and With Or Without You is incredibly whiny and unbearable. Whenever I hear Bono's voice I immediately turn off my radio because I'd rather listen to nothing and absolute silence than his nails-on-a-chalkboard voice.

How could you put one of the greatest lead singers of all time on here? HOW COULD YOU? And yes, I love U2. - RiverClanRocks

He's such a smug worthless human being so full of himself. He has an ugly voice.

2 Rod Stewart Rod Stewart Roderick David "Rod" Stewart is a British rock singer-songwriter. Born and raised in London, he is of Scottish and English ancestry.

What rod Stewart has a great voice. Except for his disco. His folk music is good though.

Perhaps a unique voice that's for sure but not a bad voice definitely when you let people like Beiber on this list

He rocks with his stellar performance! That's passion!

This list is a joke. All theses singers perhaps with the exception of Rod Stewart has GEART voices and have the BEST rock voices. - TTM

3 David Bowie David Bowie David Robert Jones was an English singer born in London on January 8, 1947, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He died in New York on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69, a hero to millions. ...read more.

He's no match for Bono or Freddy Mercury.

4 Fred Durst Fred Durst William Frederick "Fred" Durst is an American musician and film director. Durst is best known as the vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit, formed in 1994, with whom he has released six studio albums.

He can't even sing or rap - Th3Zm0nst3r

Fred Durst below David Bowie. BLASPHEMY. - DCfnaf

Fred Durst is So Annoying - RogerWatersfan1999

NO HE doesn't DESERVE TO BE HERE. Lol because he isn’t even rock - InsertCleverName

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

Dylan kicks ass, but for his lyrics, not his voice. His harmonica is awesome too. Hang on! What on earth are Mick Jagger and Robert PLant doing here?

Now this is a really bad voice - no power, range and resonance. How people can take his nasal monotonous mumbling for singing? Extremely annoying voice. - Metal_Treasure

Why is steve perry axl rose and bono are on the top they are the best singers alive!

Worst singer EVER

No talent, terrible voice, crappy songs.

Jon Bon Jovi Sucks~

7 Sting Sting Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner CBE, known professionally by his stage name Sting, is an English musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, activist, actor, and philanthropist. He is best known as the lead singer for the English band The Police

When he's comprehensible he has a pretty good voice

Voice is high

8 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.

His annoying and bad voice is the reason I don't listen to Rush often. He sounds like a mouse. But I highly appreciate the band for the instrumental parts. - Metal_Treasure

Not worst. Just kinda annoying. Kinda very thin. - zxm

He sounds like a dying goat

Very Fking Annoying for an otherwise great sounding band, almost as bad as the vocals from YES.

9 Chad Kroeger Chad Kroeger Chad Robert Kroeger is a Canadian musician and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Canadian rock band, Nickelback.

His voice itself is not bad but he has made some bad genre choices. He's got a great hard rock/metal voice and he don't have to sing ballads or other mellow stuff. He's not worse than Brian Johnson for example but Brian has never tried ballads.

Chad sounds awesome on songs like 'Burn It To The Ground', or the live cover version of 'Sad but True' by Metallica.

He should skip the silly ballads and just rock out more... He's got the rock voice.

Just stupid. He even sings soft melodic ballads with a growling voice, I just hate his "singing"

He has a good voice but his band has some bad songs... - Lucretia

He's a very good guitar player but he can't sing

His vocals do suck, he even admitted it. - Lucretia

They Sound Cool To Me But I notice it doesn’t take any real talent. I mean, I forgive him because he does lead guitar AND He has to sing - GreenDayFan21

The Contenders

11 Andy Biersack Andy Biersack

When I first heard BVB, I didn't understand why people hated them. Good guitarists, good drummer, what's so bad about this band? Then, I heard Andy singing. I then understood why people hate BVB.

12 Ozzy Osbourne Ozzy Osbourne John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. 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. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath ...read more.

He's actually not that bad, overrated but not worthy of worst.

Bjork and freddie have great voices

13 Axl Rose Axl Rose William Bruce Rose Jr., better known as 'Axl Rose', is an American singer born on February 6, 1962, in Lafayette, Indiana. He Is the founder and lead singer of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. He is a celebrated but controversial figure in the world of rock.

FYI Axl Rose does by far not have the worst voice ever Justin Bieber has the worst voice ever also your trashing all the classics and to all the people that agree I don't like any of you because he is one of the biggest voices in the world ROCK ON GUNS N ROSES - michaelwalton

I hate this racist.

Weird... Axl has an amazing voice, but it irritates the hell out of me. I can't understand why legends such as Robert Plant or especially Freddie Mercury are even on this list..? What?!

Guys Axl has a great voice plus the highest vocal range ever recorded - InsertCleverName

Not saying Axl's bad but Mike Patton has higher vocal range than Axl Rose. - zxm

Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

His voice is bloody amazing and you can dislike elvis Presley as much as you like but in the end you know he basically brought rock to us in pure form.

This guy is the best rock star I have ever seen

This is the greatest performer of all time

Not a big fan of his but I feel he shouldn't be on this list. - Metal_Treasure

What is wrong with you guys, are you jealous you can't range your voice like "The Voice"? Best singer if all time!

This is a troll item added by somebody who needs hearing aid. - Metal_Treasure

He was okay but his replacement was better which is actually kinda funny

Great singer but Journey's music videos suck crap but the songs rock

Pre-One Direction he was in a school rock band called White Eskimo. Louis Tomlinson wasn't even interested in boy bands until he was put into One Direction and he was in a school rock band called The Rogue.

Not even a rock singer - if fact he is nothing to do with rock

Pop not rock - zxm

17 Sammy Hagar Sammy Hagar Samuel Roy "Sammy" Hagar, also known as The Red Rocker, is an American rock vocalist, guitarist, songwriter, musician and entrepreneur.

Sammy Hagar's pretty good actually remove him from the top 10...

18 Robert Plant Robert Plant Robert Anthony Plant is an English musician, singer, and songwriter best known as the lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

What? I don't even... How did Plant get on that list? This is ridiculous. Is there some way to report this crapy list?

No offense. But is this is a joke! He has the best rock voice in the world. Even some singers can't make their voices like his by auto-tuning. - zxm

Robert Plant on this list is just wrong and I am not even a Zeppelin fan anymore (for their plagiarism). Yes, he is one of the most overrated singers but his voice can't be called "bad" in any context. - Metal_Treasure

Some salty Limp Bizkit or some trash band put the Golden God here - InsertCleverName

Most swearing vocalist in the world, immoral guy.

Why is he here?
I find him to be a good singer. - wrests

Wow guys. Bruce Springsteen is amazing - InsertCleverName

Go back and listen to "We Are the World". He's doing a call and response with Stevie Wonder. Wonder's voice is pristine, Brucie sounds like the garbage disposal in my sink.

Sounds like he is on the can, with constipation.

Springsteen is to singing, what Stallone is to acting, a wooden Indian, with no vocal range, a monotone...
