Top 5 Voices Of The Decade

Well, it all comes down to this. The voice of a band is typically the most unique thing about a band’s sound, and it’s what makes them recognizable, assuming it’s a good voice. Take note: I’m excluding screamers from this, no Dani Filth or Nergal in this list. This is a list of people who actually sing, and do it with copious amounts of awesome.

Note: I honestly have little to say on these folks, you’re just gonna have to take my word on their talents. I’m running out of descriptive compliments.

NUMBER 5:

Jacoby Shaddix of PAPA ROACH

Also winning the award for “Most Tattoos”, Jacoby Shaddix’s voice is one of the most recognizable of the Hard Rock genre. He gave a rapping part melody, if that says anything about how good he is.

NUMBER 4:

David Draiman of DISTURBED

If you’re a metal fan in any way, shape, or form, you know David Draiman. His voice is a much-needed break from the typical screaming and roaring of modern metal, and lives up to it’s reputation. It’s powerful, distinct, and is what makes Disturbed, Disturbed.

NUMBER 3:

Adam Young of OWL CITY

What I should say is that he is Owl City. Seriously. This insomniac-stricken genius is best known for his voice, as he does what so many pop artists anymore fail to do: Not use auto-tune. His voice is pure, new, and incredible.

NUMBER 2:

Matthew Bellamy of MUSE

Matthew Bellamy is one of the most creative minds in music today. For God’s sake, his band’s NAME is Muse! They’re so creative, creativity itself is their name! Matt’s voice has one of the most ungodly ranges ever – and that’s a compliment. He knows high notes better than anyone else today, and still can maintain a solid pitch even when he’s playing twenty spaces above the scale.

NUMBER 1:

Gerard Way of MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE

Gerard Way knows singing. He does it better than a lot of other people I’ve heard. Many would argue that Bellamy rightfully deserves this spot, but let’s look at the facts: Bellamy can sing high, and that’s about it. While Gerard may not match the Muse frontman, he still has an incredible range, and can keep himself there. He’s got that weird twang-like thing that’s bizarrely enjoyable, too.

Fucktarts. I’m out of things to say. Uh. Yea. That’s it. I’m gonna go play Mass Effect 2. This post sucks. You should just pretend it doesn’t exist. ME OUT.

    Not a bad list, but I’m a bit disappointed to see Cedric Bixler-Zavala of The Mars Volta didn’t make the list. No disrespect, but I’d wager he’s about equal to Matthew Bellamy.

      Honestly, when I wrote this list, I wasn’t familiar with The Mars Volta at all. I’ve since heard a lot of them, though, and while I think Bellamy’s voice is still superior, Cedric undoubtedly has an incredible voice.
