The worst singers of all time?

I nominate:

Johnny Rotten (largely for his work with P.I.L.)
Bernard Sumner
Alex Lifeson (which is why he plays guitar)
Matey from the Smashing Pumpkins (Zwan is it)?

2 immense works:

Slightly overated, but great none-the-less


Very underated, Ian Brown's voice is great (as always).

I admit, Martin Rossiter's voice takes a little getting used to (he's like a singing sheep). Nonetheless, this is a great album:

Gene - Olympian (1995)

From the singing sheep and his guitarist

Don't knock it!!!! It's a great album, one of the best from the "Britpop" era.

I like the Hives. I suppose the singer's voice is dodgy, but it fits the music. So...

Oh, you are so on my list!

Wayne Coyne - The Flaming Lips - is not a very good singer, but I don't count being a poor singer as a bad thing. Sometimes, its in the attitude and the emotion. Coyne always states that he is bad singer, but dosen't care because he loves to sing.

hhhmmmm, I'll have to add the late, great Janice Joplin to the list as well and she certainly proves the above point.

It's been said that I could start an arguement in an empty room.....I see no reason to disbelieve this.

For me that's part of New Order's charm. Bernard saying "stuff convention" and coming out with the worst vocal's of the 80's. I love the stuff.

Also, their appearance on TOTP for Blue Monday has to be one of the worst live performances ever. But I love it! I almost think they screwed-up on purpose.

Reportedly, it was the first live performance in the history of this show, they said they would suck at pretending to play and sing, so they decided to do it for real

What do you mean by 'stuff convention' ?

The 1983 convention of the polished pop record. I liked the charts in '83, if I was given Power, Corruption & Lies at the time I'd have binned it after the first track. It was probably the furthest you could get from New Wave.

I appreciate Bernard's attitude now, there shouldn't be any rules for music. You can even produce your own work!

Wait til Taylor sees that (though I have to agree).

I can't stomach Alanis Morisette, I loathe that woman's voice!!!! Apparently she's at the top of the female vocalists tree, but I'd place her at the bottom (to be used as a foot-stool). You'd see PJ Harvey's footprints all over her face.

You poor sod Nick! I'm not keen on Collins myself, his voice lacks range. I have 3 of his 80's hits, that's plenty.

When ne member of a boy-band(No matter of a hottest boy-band or not) tries 2 be a solo singer if the band is over or almost over .........he becomes the worst singer of all.'Cause ppl just don't take them in the same way!& c how quickly he falls from the top of the world.
Do i need 2 give ne examples?.
(So if u r a member of a boy-band try ur best 2 keep it tied.Still if it breaks don't even think of becoming a solo singer.Do wtever u like ,if needed can ask 2 this forum.........just post a topic.)

All pop music is good music but all good music isn't pop music
Wanna know more about pop music or my boy-bands?
