Tough choice between Alice and Lee Roth, but I went with Alice. I also think Mustaine gets a bad rap. Frankly I love his vocals.

Which do you think is the best singer from this group of artists?

Best singer currently?

Alice.
At their peak, no point in making a poll to find out the best 75 year old singer!

That would still be Alice.

You’d be wrong!

Treeduck is the best 75 year old rock singer on the planet!

Wrong!

It's only treeduck's hair that has been around for that long. The body that grew out of it is much younger.

How is it a bad rap if I and many others wholeheartedly think his vocals are awful? That makes no sense. It’s simply a preference.

Having said that, there are some great riffs and tons of talent going on in Megadeth but...yeah, the vocals.

You're entitled to you opinion, I'm not saying that you should change your preference. I'm saying I think he deserves more credit than he usually gets. Yeah he's not a traditionally great singer, but I wouldn't want anyone else singing for Megadeth, it wouldn't fit.

Of course I’m entitled to my opinion, same as you are to yours. I’m just not getting the “bad rap” bit. If someone said Geddy gets a bad rap as being a bad vocalist, I still wouldn’t get it even though I totally love most of his vocals. I think “bad rap” works if someone claimed all Rush wrote about were sci-fi and dragon themes. OR if they said Geddy was a banshee screamer of a vocalist...even though that happened in just a portion of Rush’s early career. Those would be bad raps imho.

Someone not liking a vocalist is just that - someone not liking a vocalist.

If we are talking “in their prime” then it’s gotta be Roth.

Now? Iggy - no question.

I think you and I have different ideas of what the phrase "gets a bad rap" means. That's fine, I don't think we're actually disagreeing about anything else here (aside from the fact that I like Mustaine's voice and you don't).

I do remember you having quite a different perspective about the words “objective” and “subjective”.

lol, I remember that. I was arguing a point based entirely on semantics and it never got off the ground.

To me getting a bad rap just means having a bad reputation in general, not being frequently criticized or insulted, though that would probably lead to a bad reputation. So in context, I think Mustaine has a bad reputation as a singer from what I've seen people write about his voice.

Megadeth is one of my favorite bands and I think his vocals work perfectly for them but even I don't think Mustaine has a good voice in any way. The bad rap he's got for his voice is well earned.
