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".

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.

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

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

Most overrated band of all time

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

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 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!

He makes Fred Durst look like Freddie's Mercury.

4 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.

When he's comprehensible he has a pretty good voice

Voice is high

5 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

I can't stand his voice - Rocker00

He sounds like a dying goat

The worst

11 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... - BoredJeff02

12 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.

I didn't know he sings as much as utter short phrases and makes noises into a microphone

He sounds like he's dying every time he sings.

Why is this below Bono? - TheAwesomeBrosVotes

Ye. his singing sucks - Th3Zm0nst3r

13 Chris Daughtry Chris Daughtry Christopher Adam "Chris" Daughtry is an American musician and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the rock band Daughtry and as the fourth-place contestant on the fifth season of American Idol.

Tries to sound hard, but does not come off as bluesy or awesome. Instead, more like the sounds you make while you go to the washroom.

all of these singers have great voices on the list apart from Nancy and Ann Wilson and Chris Daughtry - idolangelx13

let us kill the one who made this list. but this one does suck - ronluna

14 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was a American musician and actor. 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

15 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?

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

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

Worst band ever!

He is known for his work with the E Street Band. Nicknamed "The Boss", Springsteen is widely known for his brand of poetic lyrics, Americana, working class and sometimes political ...read more.

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...

17 Hyde

Uh this isn't best singer list. Someone got confused lol

If this is Hyde Takarai, then I disagree. His voice range is so wide, he can sing any music genre and he's even better live. His songs are great. definitely shouldn't be on the list. He sings for L'arc~en~Ciel, just listen to them and you'll see.

18 Steve Perry Steve Perry Stephen Ray "Steve" Perry is an American singer, songwriter, and record producer. He is known as the lead singer of the rock band Journey during their most commercially successful periods from 1977 to 1987 and again from 1995 to 1998.

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

Uh... Yeah his pop songs aren't great but when he was in Malice Mizer, he was a God and his voice was wonderful.

20 Sinead O'Connor Sinead O'Connor Sinéad Marie Bernadette O’Connor is an Irish singer-songwriter who rose to fame in the late 1980s with her debut album The Lion and the Cobra.

No, she has one of the best female voices, and this is coming from someone who dislikes the Irish folk music. - Swellow
