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?!

Looks like Metallica&Nirvana fans are here.

23 Ann Wilson Ann Wilson Ann Dustin Wilson is an American musician, best known as the lead singer and songwriter of the hard rock band Heart.

One of the FINEST female voices in Rock. PERIOD!

Giving me a heart attack!

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

25 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

Nirvana is over rated - Sabbath

28 Justin Beiber

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.

He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer ...read more.

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 also has a few side projects like Julien K and Dead By Sunrise. He committed suicide in 2017 due to depression.

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.

Who puts a dead guy in this list R.I.P - Th3Zm0nst3r

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

Pop not rock - zxm

32 Christopher Bowes (Alestorm)

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

34 Mick Jagger Mick Jagger Sir Michael Philip "Mick" Jagger is an English singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as the lead vocalist and a co-founder of the Rolling Stones.

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)

36 Billy Corgan Billy Corgan William Patrick "Billy" Corgan Jr. is an American musician, songwriter, producer, television writer, poet, and professional wrestling promoter best known as the lead singer, guitarist, and sole permanent member of The Smashing Pumpkins.

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 voice

37 Toshimitsu Deyama

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

Get that outta here. Now.

40 David Lee Roth David Lee Roth David Lee Roth is an American rock vocalist, songwriter, actor, author, and former radio personality.

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.
