sleater kinney??? oh NO! I think the girls are unique and no way shitty.

Connor Oberst is shitty.
That guy from Unicorns is shitty.
That guy from Decemberists is uber-shitty.

galaxie 500's music is so great that it makes up for that guy being the worst ever singer.


i used to really like sleater kinney but the other day i put on a couple of their records (dig me out & call the doctor) for the first time in years and couldn't understand how i used to be able to enjoy listening to their voices.

I forgot one more...maybe it does not really count, since Joanna Newsom is no band, but oh God, what an appalling voice she's got.

On the other hand, for example Metric is a terribly shitty band with a great singer (Emily Haynes).

Because being in an indie band is just like being in a punk band, you don't necessairly have to know how to sing, you just got to sound like your ready to commit suicide at any moment.

Joanna Newsom's voice on her latest record isnt too bad, and ive gotten used to it due to fact ive been listening to it endlessly for the past two months. I put on her 'milk eyed mender' album for the first time in ages this morning and her voice on it was so cringeworthy i just had to turn it off.

not quite. I think bands like bikini kill, sleater kinney, bratmobile etc... have great voices as does Kim gordon. As for unwound, yeah they don't have the best singer in the world. Who cares? The vocals were always mixed pretty low and didn't stop them from being one of the greatest bands ever.

I never thought that the vocals in this band were that awful.

I have to agree with fishmonkey about clap your hands and say yeah.
Terrible band and an even worse singer.
And perhaps not that original but Billy Corgan's voice and Brian Molko's voice are awful!
That's right, BOLD.

Have you ever heard Victoria Williams? The similarity between her voice and Joanna Newsom's is pretty uncanny. I'd rather listen to Victoria Williams though.

What about those vocal laments that you hear on songs by bands like Keane, Snow Patrol or Coldplay? You know those moments where they let out a wordless lament, a polite call to arms, the sound of a sensisitive, boring, sexless, spineless human being. What about them?
