Interesting question

But as I think about it, unless you are Tangerine Dream, in order to be a "great band", you gotta have a great vocalist

AC/DC - I cannot stand Brian Johnson's voice.   Fingernails on a chalkboard.

There's this band out there that I don't know if you'd heard of called Led Zeppelin... What's up with their singer's voice?

Here’s an example of Kiedis in what I consider to be cheesy vocals:




Here’s one that isn’t cheesy. He can thank Stevie Wonder:

Hang me, shoot me, I don't give a f**k.

Amon Amarth would sound a billion times better with clean vocals in the vein of Jeff Scott Soto or Bruce Dickinson. The death growls doesn't really fit it.

And I'm not dissing Johann, he's an absolute sweetheart from what I've seen and heard. But I never liked that Cookie Monster stuff.

I hear you. Not disputing the cheese.

Iirc anthony rapped because he did not think he was a good singer. I wrote rhcp off after one hot minute after seeing the two previous tours. Mothers milk and bssm.
