    Yoko Ono.

    Not in a good way.

    She was bloody awful as a singer or shrieker or whatever you call it.

    come to think of it, eddie's got a somewhat irritating quality about his voice that it took me a minute or two to get past. i find it somewhat endearing though, he really sounds like he's being honest. 

    not at all nasally though yoga, relax :)

    did you know he's only like 5'7?  hm.

    Connor Oberst is one that was a little whiney at first, but he definitely grew on me.

    I think Neil Young has an irritating voice but I love his music anyway.

    The Dana Carvey Neil Young never ceases to crack me up.

    I am a big REM fan but could see Michael Stipe annoying many.

     Keith also sounded pretty good on "Little T&A" off the Tattoo You album

    Macy Gray

    And not in a good way.

    The baby doll voice irritates me to no end!

    Finally tracked down the name of an artist I wanted to add, though it may be more the song and not her voice:  Regina Spektor singing "Fidelity" -- every time I hear that

    And it breaks my heart
    And it breaks my heart
    And it breaks my heart
    It breaks my heart

    which she sings as "heart heart heart heart heart-art-art"  I think more of "breaking wind" and of course I hear it as "it breaks my f......" well, you get the idea.  I always have to change the channel when it comes on.




    I'm sure she's a very nice person.  And I'm sure she's not really singing about gastrointestinal distress.

    Voices I hate and not in a good way at all:

    Bono
    Steve Perry
    Geddy Lee
    Joni Mitchell
    Joan Baez

    I'm sure there's plenty more but that's off the top of my head.  I just hate that high pitch stuff.

    In Response to Re: Voices that irritate you, in a good way...or not : Ahh...the Eddie Vedder clones... ...what I usually refer to as "Earnest" Rock...they always sound like they need either more fiber in their diets (or maybe more drugs?)....
    Posted by MattyScornD


    Yes, I figured these guys would be mentioned.  I think of their vocal styles as 'Modern Male Angst' or something like that.  There are a bunch more of them, too, Theory of a Deadman, Default, Stain'd...Eddie Vedder seems to be the only one who can really pull it off with any credibility.

    Sting, I agree.  Cant stand his voice or his songs.

    Another voice I'm not fond of is Bruce Springstein.   IMO when he sings it sounds like he's in the middle of taking a crap.

    Nobody's mentioned Bryan Johnson from AC/DC yet.  I always figured the lads chose him to replace Bon Scott partly because he had one of those 'irritating in a good way' voices.  It has certainly worked like a charm.

    There certainly was a time when I might have suggested Bruce tone down all the groaning . . .  it wears pretty thin after a while, but then again, if you're recognizable enough to become a cariacature of yourself, that denotes a certain amount (and a certain kind) of success . . .  does it not?

    Irritating in a good way and almost completely unintelligible is the voice of the guy from WU LYF.

    Also Nils Edenloff of the Rural Alberta Advantage in a Jeff Magnumy sort of way and that baby voice of Joanna Newsom.

    Cant stand the smashing pumpkins..Makes me want to jam a skewer into my ear so i can never hear it again..what a whinebag..put a little bass in your voice boy!!
    I love the aggressive voices like Sully-Godsmack, Dave Draimen-disturbed, and if youve never heard nightwish with their first singer, you should..Its prog metal with a female opera singer..I didnt mind a lot of the vox in the 80-s, but nowadays it annoys me..Too high pitched I think..

    How about the guy from Faith No More?  'You want it all but you can't have it...'
    That song was kind of a classic of the enjoyably irritating wasn't it?

      The song was called Epic.That's a really good song and had a cool video that went with it too.He does have a pleasantly irritating voice.
      Another band that had a singer with an irratating voice was Wall of Voodoo who did the hit Mexican Radio.Yet,still a song I like.

    Yes, great song.  'I wish I was in Tijuana, eating barbecued iguana...'  The voice belongs to Stan Ridgway.  I believe our fellow poster Zillagod is a big fan of his.
