    Default Best and Worst Heavy Metal voices

    Best - Ozzy Osbourne - I like Ozzy but in no way do I consider myself an Ozzy guy (I haven't owned one of his albums since about 1984), but he gets my vote in a heartbeat. From Crazy Train to Bark At The Moon to No More Tears this brain-dead mother can fuckin' sing. An amazing voice.

    Worst - Nickelback (Chad Kroeger) - It's been a long, long time since somebody's voice went through me sideways. I'm sorry, but this guy - and this band - suck ass. I think his voice is fucking horrible, like nails on a chalkboard. I am definitely not on board with Nicklesuck.

    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    Eh? Ozzy's "voice" and the word "best" put together? Nickelback a heavy metal band? Huh?

    I'm not all that familiar with Nickelback, but are they really considered heavy metal?

    Ok, ok...metal, rock, grunge, whatever. Maybe the thread title is a bit misleading but you can probably figure out what the topic is.

    And yes, Ozzy's VOICE is an amazing metal voice. Love him or hate him, the guy can sing. Again, I don't consider myself and Ozzy guy at all but I can spot a great voice when I hear it.

    That would be "best and worst RnR voices".

    Ozzy has one of the most unique and signature voices, noone would argue here. Best? Hardly.


    Edited: noticed you edited . Don't get me wrong, I love Ozzy, Zakk era especially (voice-wise too). I just can't put the dude on the same line with Bach.

    Well, considering you're 21 I would imagine you might say that. Had you lived through Ozzy's best years you might see it differently. However, you still haven't given us your picks.

    He also gets the vote for Worst Metal Hair.


    Very surprised to see so much respect for Rob Halford so far. I can admit he has a great metal voice but I didn't think he'd get so many votes.

    Not a "metal" voice, but my favorite "rock" voice is Paul Rodgers of Free, Bad Company and currently with Queen.

    Is Soundgarden / Audioslave considered metal now-a-days? If so then Chris Cornell would be my favorite metal voice.

    Worst metal voice... that's easy for me Vince Neil.
