The lead singer of The Offspring...don't know his name. I've been mildly interested in their music for years, but noticed that the dude can't really sing worth a flip.
Formerly user nonsubmissivewife, but no longer a wife and never was submissive. Pretty sure those two things have nothing to do with each other though.

I think his name is Dexter or something... and I am with the concencus that he most definitely is not the best singer...

Ugh! The dude I worked with over the summer would always turn up the radio when that Hammerhead song would come on. Not fun.

Agreed, he sucks. I remixed two tracks for him and hit the codine hard afterwards. He's also a complete ahole, almost as big an ahole as his percussionist. Alright there Inder o_O.

Agree with everyone on that list besides Anthony Keidis. I love the Red Hot Chili Peppers and I actually do enjoy his voice.

Jeff Magnum can't sing to save his life, but that is what makes his songs so unique to him, because he's the only one that can sing them properly, or improperly I suppose.

I like good singing... no, scratch that, I prefer good song presenters. A singer that can present a given song in the best possible way and a lot of times good technical singing isn't very good at presenting a given song. Ozzy as an example, I've heard good singers cover some of his songs and they absolutely suck balls, awesome when he sings it, but crap on toast by good singers. His unique vocal delivery is perfectly suited to the songs that he sings. Same with Keidis, Tom Waits, Helfield and so on and so forth. Bob Dylan is different for me in that everytime I hear someone else sing his songs I am enthralled but everytime he sings them I hear them as just plain bad songs.

When screamo became popular in metal I couldn't handle it and couldn't listen to it. I still can't listen to that stuff and tend to lump them all in as bad singers but I know a lot of guys who love that stuff and think it works for the songs. How they can differentiate between singers of different bands? I still don't understand that.

I don't like oversinging either and I'd appreciate it if they learned restraint, however I'm not the market for the oversingers and that market seems to like that style so if I don't want that market telling me how metal singers should sing (and I don't) then I'm not going to tell that market how those singers should sing.

Male men? Are there other kinds of men?
