Worst Rock Voices
The Contenders: Page 2
Nirvana is over rated - Sabbath
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
One of the FINEST female voices in Rock. PERIOD!V 1 Comment
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... - LucretiaV 3 Comments
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
His voice is like talking. - Lucretia
His brother is much better than him. - zxm
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. - BoredJeff02
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.
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. - BoredJeff02
He disgraces rock and roll.V 4 Comments
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. - BoredJeff02
You all are gonna Trigger some Fans of Chester if you don't be careful.
Awful and whiny... like whiny - LucretiaV 5 Comments
Not even a rock singer - if fact he is nothing to do with rock
Pop not rock - zxm
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
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)
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
Another marmite vocal, should definitely be in the top ten
He's like a prepubescent ozzy osbourne
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!
I always wanted to like SM's songs, but I couldn't because of Billy's irritating voiceV 1 Comment
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.
