Top 10 Worst Rock Vocalists Of The 90’s

I’ve done a lot of lists. If you don’t already – my all time favorite decade for music is the 90’s. And today sense I’m out of ideas at the moment – here’s top ten worst singers of the 90’s!

10. Kirk Hammett (Metallica)

I’ve never honestly hated Metallica, but man does this guy’s voice suck. While I do recognize his amazing abilities as a guitarist, his voice makes me noxious. He can’t sing at all. I don’t honestly have much of an opinion on the band, but I know for sure that he can’t sing. My Dad did however invent the term “Craptallica”.

9. Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails)

In certain aspects of rock, I find some things admirable about Nine Inch Nails. However, I ain’t a fan at ALL – and Trent can’t sing to save a life. Probably wouldn’t save anybody anyways sense he’s a jerk. But none-the-less he took Kirk’s lack of ability to sing and made it a lot worse. He just screams out of key and wheezes and makes noises. He’s just terrible.

8. Linda Perry (4 Non Blondes)

While “What’s Up” is a fantastic and great song, Linda can’t sing. This 90’s one hit wonder is much better than the last two bands, however she is a worse singer than both Kirk and Trent. Doesn’t change how great their one hit was though!

7. Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine)

To be quite honest, I like the occasional Rage Against The Machine. However, that doesn’t change Tom’s lack of ability to sing. Amazing guitarist, but I think he should’ve left the singing up to someone else. He just screams. And most often out of key too.

6. Jonathan Davis (Korn)

Korn isn’t good. Doesn’t necessarily mean I hate the band though. Remember, this is just a top 10 worst singers list. Not a band list. Anyhow, Jonathan Davis is anther flat out terrible singer. He takes the weird noises and screams Trent Reznor does, and he took it to a whole new crappier level. While Korn is still a better band than NIN, it’s clear that Jonathan is a worse vocalist.

5. John McCrea (Cake)

Obviously John McCrea has to make this list. It’s a top ten worst singers of the 90’s list! He doesn’t even actually sing. Insulting to call him a singer, because Cake is literally just TALKING! Not even an attempt to sing, and is probably the only one on here that doesn’t even try. Cake did actually have a couple good songs, and those good songs were actually some of the best of the decade. However, John can’t sing and that’s what this list highlights.

4. Courtney Love (Hole)

Courtney Love is pretty much the male version of Trent Reznor. She’s got the musical talent ability of Phoebe from Friends, perhaps even worse than her. She’s a pig, and is one of the worst singers of all time. Not just of the 90’s. Hole is arguably the worst rock band of all time. At least in my opinion.

3. Fred Durst (Limp Bizkit)

Gangsta wanna-be and prince of loserville, Fred Durst is clearly needed to be added to this list. He’s a crappy person, singer, musician, and is pretty much terrible at everything he does. Literally, talentless. As his hero Tom Morello apologized for inspiring such crappy music to be produced…that pretty much says it all.

2. Marilyn Manson (Marilyn Manson)

Marilyn Manson as your stage name and as your band name? Arrogance much?? Any way, yes Marilyn Manson clearly is one of the worst rock singers of the 90’s. Just complete crap. Right. Create yourself a “character”…so people won’t realize how much you suck at singing. While his talent as an entertainer is pretty alright, he can’t sing and is a huge jerk. He ran a team of hard working talented musicians, that SOMEHOW, – above and beyond my knowledge made millions of dollars. Being a crapbag and terrible singer is clearly not a good combination. He’s very well earned his spot at top 5 worst rock singers of the 90’s.

1. Axl Rose (Guns N Roses)

Ladies and gentlemen. I present to you, the one and only…#1 worst rock singer of the 90’s! The king of jerks, and frontman for one of the worst bands in rock – Guns N Roses. He took all of these singers on the list lack of ability to sing and made it 4x worst. Even making noises out of key, even though that’s supposed to be impossible because it’s just noise.
