I'm sure thousands of you have already mentioned this, and I'd like to chime in.

The guy from The Decemberists is the reigning king of god-awful, vomit-inducing vocals. I've tried to like this band... but his voice prevents me from doing so.

i liked one decemberists album, but everything other than that was just too fucking wordy and "intellectual" (because it takes real brains to rhyme miranda with veranda) for their own good. not to mention mr. scene beefcake whose voice sounds like a fucking baby goat being assfucked by the dude from neutral milk hotel...who also suck.

All awesome vocalists.
*By the way, Metric are a fucking awesome band, not just Emily.*


Vocals make or break a band for me, most often. I can't listen to Joanna Newsom because she sounds like a retarded 6 year-old.
The vocals in Mother Mother are horrendous.
Uhhh...

When it comes to just singers that don't sing all perfect-pitch and on-key... who gives a fuck? I can think of a very small few bands that do so that are actually good or have good lyrics. I love "shitty" vocals.

What?! No... Isis' vocals are so fucking rad.
And Thom Yorke has a wicked voice. I would kill to have his voice.

neutral milk hotel have the second worst vocalist after galaxie 500, but with galaxie 500 the goodness of the rest of the band makes up for it.

Who's debating? I'm just saying it's lame. A solitary opinion.

No way. Jeff's voice is fucking awesome, plus he can actually hit notes and makes the sweetest melodies, so don't give me that bullshit.

i fucking love clap your hands say yeah and will defend alec's voice forever. he has that "i'm choking on my voice" urgency when he sings. i love it.

don't even get me started on conor oberst... all of his releases the past ten years have been amazing and his voice is just getting better.

yeah, jeff has the ability to sing. some people just sound different and jeff is an example of that.

i really couldn't see the band working at all without his voice
anything else would ruin it.
