Mastodon for sure. They have 3 not-excellent singers and Troy Sanders is easily the weakest link, yet he sings the most. Still love them though.

Weird.  I really like Mastodon for the vocals - not saying they're at the same level as Queen, but I like how they all have very distinctive voices, and many of the tunes feature them all.  Mastodon is another one of those bands who get a lot of shit for expanding their range beyond the super heavy stuff, and writing more dynamic, accessible tunes.  I agree that their vocals aren't always successful live . . . but there are lots of bands like that.

Not necessarily a great band, but how about The Flaming Lips?  Actually, as bad a singer as Wayne Coyne is, I think it contributes part of the charm to the band a little bit.

I do like some of their older stuff "Soft Bulletin", "Mystics" and "Yoshimi".  I'm not sure I've ever heard them mentioned on TRF.
