    I think that there is a misunderstanding of the Darkness here. It is a very English band (and I mean English not British). Justin Hawkins does not take himself too seriously but he does write some fabulous songs. The vocals are meant to be over the top, the videos are humorous, but it is not parody, it is too kind for that.

    Gene Simmons of Kiss is a really rubbish singer. They are not Heavy Metal either but he's serious about himself.

    I would agree with what you say about Gene Simmons. He did a programme here in the UK where he tried to teach some classically trained music students how to play heavy metal. I found that programme quite patronising. Kiss did have good make-up though

    I don't care if Justin Hawkins is using irony, parody or sodomy, he has an annoying voice. I think he's funny but I can only hear about one chorus before I have to press the 'Off' button.

    It is a fact that cannot be denied, Gene Simmons is a rubbish singer.

    Typcially I find that when I find a metal singer I don't like, 70% of the time it's because I'm listening to early songs from the band where the members are not as experienced as in later ones. Many bands fit this profile.

    Heard lots of good and bad ones,but,the singer in Manilla Road(from the '80's),sounds like he is singing while his nose is being pinched!!Very nasal!

    Metalica is one of the bands I don't really like and Sex Pistles. The best
    brittish metal bands were Def Leperd and Whitesnake.

    I'll go along with this one. Alexi Laiho is his name, and yeah I think he's probably my least favorite metal singer. Very grating voice.

    Yeah,that's too bad about Children of Bodom,they are quite exciting to listen to,otherwise.They are a talented,accomplished power metal band,dressed up as a thrash metal band!!Guess they want to be more popular with the masses,as anything in metal that is more negative sells better!

    Didn't Paul Stanley sing in Kiss? I didn't know Gene Simmons sang, I just thought he pretended to play Bass and stuck out his tongue.

    James LaBrie if you think of him as a heavy metal singer.

    i love what ian gillan did on the STUDIO albums of deep purple, but to be really honest, he sucked so much with black sabbath. by the way this period was the worst of all for this band.

    Somewhere between Andy Biersack and Oli Sykes, I should say....
    Somewhere I even saw Marilyn Manson in the list, but he mostly too outrageous and totally insane, then bad actually)
