    And Helen Reddy was the worst of the worst. “Ruby Red Dress/Leave Me Alone” may be the worst song of all time.

    Makes me think of the line from the Bob and Tom song. "Man I'm glad I'm a man".

    "I find Michael Bolton completely revoltin', man I'm glad I'm a man"!

    Yep...I should've had Axl Rose on my list. While I like a couple of G n' R tunes, the dude sounds like a cat in pain. Slash's guitar playing is the only thing that makes them bearable to me.

    My taste is mostly older rock music but I do occasionally listen to some country. Luke Bryant is the latest singer that I’ve wondered how he made it in the Nashville music industry. Not much of a singer imo. But country’s history is riddled with head scratching wonders that made it big, such as Porter Wagner, Bill Anderson, Ernest Tubb, etc.

    Realistically, you can add most anyone who has been on the MTV Video Music Awards in the last 20 years or so, or anyone who's ever been or the CMT Music Awards.

    “You rang, sir?”

    So yeah, here’s the top of the list:
    Don Henley
    Axl Rose
    Garth Brooks

    Those are my worst offenders. I’ve also developed a pretty stout hate of John Anderson, even though I like some of his songs. But too much exposure to his incessantly and overly nasally and awful “Seminole Wind” makes me want to choke him.

    Has John Anderson done anything is the past decade? I assumed his career was over.

    Not that I’m aware of. I just hate how he sounds on that stupid song, which gets played all the time on the in-store play at the bar I moonlight at.

    Never minded this one much. It's the one below that grates on me.

    Axl Rose -- the only thing worse than his singing is his dancing. Someone shoot me before he stands (actually sits) in with AC DC again.

    Ozzy Osborne -- even before he got old, the worst live singer you'll hear unless you like to hear someone singing under pitch. His stage presence also borders on looking like a toddler trying to get attention. Like when he claps and tries to get the crowd into it. Good thing he was excellent at picking lead guitarists. He played with some great ones.

    Vince Neil -- He tries, he really does. It can be painful listening to a live performance.
