Worst Rock Voices
The Top Ten
What the hell is wrong with you gus?! Bono is amazing. At least he's better than what Justin Beiber is selling.
How could you put one of the greatest lead singers of all time on here? HOW COULD YOU? And yes, I love U2. - RiverClanRocks
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 the HELL is Bono #1? I’m not a huge fan of u2 or anything, I’ve just heard one or two songs but you can’t deny that the guy has an amazing voiceV 13 Comments
The higher the tree, the more wind it catches. - phr
He's no match for Bono or Freddy Mercury.
David bowie? bono? jon bon jovi? they're all great singers! by putting David bowie here you are showing disrespect to him, his death and his fans >:( - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
What rod Stewart has a great voice. Except for his disco. His folk music is good though.
He rocks with his stellar performance! That's passion!
I can't stand this guys vocals, he really sucks - christangrant
The higher the tree, the more wind it catches. - phrV 2 Comments
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. Please don’t attack me for the first part - InsertCleverNameV 2 Comments
You give lists a bad name
He sings alright. Bit bland though - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Jon and his band were at the forefront of the decline of modern music.
Jon Bon Jovi Sucks~V 4 Comments
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!
Well, his songs sound better when played and sung by other artists.V 8 Comments
When he's comprehensible he has a pretty good voice
No sting is a great singer - InsertCleverName
Voice is high
The police r a good band and this is a good singer - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
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"
HEY! I like his voice and I like nickelback! >:( Remove him from this list or at least put him lower - NickelbackLinkinPark4EvaV 3 Comments
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
He sounds like he is being tortured, makes my skin crawl...Rush is the only group that makes me turn the radio off
Not worst. Just kinda annoying. Kinda very thin. - zxm
I love rush but Geddys voice is just not that good at allV 8 Comments
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.
Not even a rock singer - if fact he is nothing to do with 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.
Rock singer? what. Pop singer I believe and he's not even good - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Don’t even try to call him rock >:( - InsertCleverNameV 1 Comment
Sammy Hagar's pretty good actually remove him from the top 10...
Arguably the best voice of the 80s..
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
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?!
I hate this racist.
Racist cont. - NickelbackLinkinPark4EvaV 17 Comments
Most swearing vocalist in the world, immoral guy.
Why is he here?
I find him to be a good singer. - wrests
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
Oh, I agree so much! I HATE this dude's voice. He shouldn't even be one of the best. His voice is just AGGRAVATING! The entire band Led Zeppelin just SUCKS! - PhoenixAura81V 9 Comments
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_TreasureV 3 Comments
This is a troll item added by somebody who needs hearing aid. - 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!
He was okay but his replacement was better which is actually kinda funny
DON'T STOP BELIEVIN. TAKE HIM OFF THIS LIST. - NickelbackLinkinPark4EvaV 2 Comments
He's actually not that bad, overrated but not worthy of worst.
Bjork and freddie have great voices
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...
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.
He's a very good guitar player but he can't sing
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
He sucks but he should not be on the list because he is not rock. Can someone put Adam Levine from Maroon 5 (Maroon 5 used to be rock but now is pop) please?
He isn't rock and he shouldn't be on here, but let me tell you this.
When I first heard the song Baby on the radio, I really thought it was a girl singing. It sounded so alike. But when the Baby part came on I was like "Oh... my... god..."
Justin Bieber is a pop singer with a crap pop voice he doesn't belong on the list because he ain't part of Rock never was never will be.
R u effing serious? Justin bieber is rock? My god. Pop not rock thanks - NickelbackLinkinPark4EvaV 5 Comments
Wait…Brian Johnson is a MAN!?
I thought he was a screaming banshee.
You're trolling right? Cause Brian Johnson has a damn good voice!
Uh... Yeah his pop songs aren't great but when he was in Malice Mizer, he was a God and his voice was wonderful.
No, she has one of the best female voices, and this is coming from someone who dislikes the Irish folk music. - Swellow
One hit wonder - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
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
One of the FINEST female voices in Rock. PERIOD!
Giving me a heart attack!
Freddie's voice was so magnificent! Way too good for rock, per se, because it's not beauty that they regard as 'great, ' but growling/shrieking, which Freddie just did not do. He did everything gorgeously! His voice was the voice of God! It was absolute perfection! No words can describe the greatness of the most phenomenal Freddie Mercury! THE BEST EVER!
Freddie Mercury had a good unique voice to Rock not a terrible one whoever added him probably has barely listened to good Rock music.
Obviously a troll item added by somebody who is completely deaf. Or jealous. Or biased. Whatever the reason it wasn't a good reason. Period. - Metal_Treasure
Why is he even on this list. Freddie Mercury had a PHENOMENAL voice.
His brother is much better than him. - zxm
Sounds like he has marbles in his mouth. His guitar playing, vocals, and lyrics suck. Nirvana sucks in general.
Nirvana is over rated - Sabbath
GAH! Nirvana's vocals are awful. Dave Grohl should have been the singer, listen to Beelzeboss by Tenacious D (He's the devil) - SoldierOfFortune
WHY IS HE HERE? THIS LIST IS SO EFFING DISGRACEFUL! ADD 100 MORE SINS! - NickelbackLinkinPark4Eva
Great, great, great songwriter... Probably the best after Dylan, Cohen & Lennon, but his voice isn't good at all... It fits perfectly on VU but if Mercury, the best voice of all time, is here, so Lou should be here too
HEY! WHO PUT CHESTER ON THIS LIST CHESTER IS PERFECTION HE IS AMAZING JUST BECAUSE HE HAS A HIGH VOICE FOR A GUY doesn't MEAN he's BAD TAKE CHESTER OFF THIS LIST CHESTER IS BAD ASS - Jetticus12
Chester's quite generic and boring I've heard better singing from Aaron Lewis.
You all are gonna Trigger some Fans of Chester if you don't be careful.
THAT IS SO IT! THIS LIST FINALLY BROKE ME WITH ITS STUPIDITY! ADD 1B SINS! - NickelbackLinkinPark4EvaV 6 Comments
There's a good reason why this guy is on this list. Pirate core metal is so bad it gave me AIDS just hearing it. Auditory ipecac
Whoever made this list has a poor taste in Rock music. Phil Collin is quite good especially with his new song "I Don't Care Anymore"
Better at Singing than acting that's for sure
Why is Freddie Mercury higher? He sounds like he is trying to sing while swallowing a bunch of drugs. - 445956
He was good when he was young, now has good singing here and there. ( I'm a stones fan)
I never could see why a great band like the Stones had such an awful singer.
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.
Ye. his singing sucks - Th3Zm0nst3r
Another marmite vocal, should definitely be in the top ten
He has to have the most annoying voice ever! It's whiney, nasaly, so irritating... Like nails on a chalkboard! How Bono is 3 and Corgan 24 is beyond comprehension!
He's like a prepubescent ozzy osbourne
GET THIS GUY OFF THIS LIST - samo13V 1 Comment
He started out as a regular 80's heavy metal vocalist and he wasn't that bad back then. Although he's lost most of his range now. It's really sad and I believe if he really cared about music, he would have stopped singing, heartbroken but not hurting anyone's ears anymore. - alinaschneider
His voice works on Van Halen records but he's a terrible singer. The tonal quality of his voice is just terrible.
Has a terrible voice. All he ever did was squeal, and "sing" like some idiot throughout the songs. Like a previous commenter said, his voice worked for Van Halen, but he SUCKED as a singer.
Get that outta here. Now.
Why is Freddie higher? This guy sounds like if Elvis was in a grunge band after doing a bunch of drugs. - 445956
THIS is an awful rock voice, it's insulting that Freddie is higher. - DCfnaf
Stupid Egyption wannabe singer... I hate him so much I can't stand it!
