Voices in music that irritate you

Discussion in 'Anything goes' started by TheWritingWaffle, Jun 25, 2012.

  1. I was talking with a friend of mine about Coldplay, and we eventually slipped into certain voices of music and how there were some that just didn't resonate. A critic I watch a lot says it's "just at the right frequency to piss [you] off."

    So, I ask all of you, who does that for you? My short, but ever-growing list:

    - Peter Cetera of Chicago
    - Most mainstream female country artists
    - Jason DeRulo
    - Early Justin Bieber

    Dolores O'Riordan.
  3. Might as well toss the lead singer from Four Non-Blondes on there too.

    I love Dolores O'Riordan.

    I agree about the Four Non Blondes singer.

    Bonnie Raitt, Melissa Etheridge and Sheryl Crow jump out to me.

    Roger Hodgson of Supertramp and Geddy Lee of Rush. It's not that I don't think both are talented. It's not that I hate the bands they sing for. I just cannot stand listening to either one for more than a few minutes without scratching at my neck and cringing.

    The REO Speedwagon guy (Kevin Cronin), especially when he hits the hard R.

    I did love "Nothing Compares To U," but for 99.7% of the time, yes, Sinead O'Connor.

    I have no idea why I know the names of all these singers.
