Geddy Lee -- I actually have a great deal of respect for Rush, I want to like them, but my reaction to his voice is at the most base level, I can't get past it.
Rush is extremely talented, but as far as Geddy Lee's voice is concerned, I'd say its a toss up between listening to him sing, or getting poked with a sharp stick in the eye!
Geddy sounded like he'd been huffing helium in Rush's early albums, but his voice moved to a lower register in Permanent Waves, Moving Pictures, Signals, and later albums/CDs. Rush had increased commercial success after Geddy lowered his voice.

Alex, Geddy, and Neil were incredibly talented musicians.

Beyonce'. I just don't get it. Didn't like her with Destiny's Child, and I don't like her solo. I'll take Rihanna any day.
The Squad is kind of annoying. I like her older songs way better than the newer ones. The remake of Before I Let Go was a great song though.

My dislike for John Legend is growing. Something in his voice ain’t right lol
His Jesus Christ Superstar performance was awful.

I'd have to add in John Mayer to this thread.

Billy Ray Cyrus. Every time I heard his "Achy Breaky Heart it was like metal nails going across a chalk board. Then, to top it off, he's responsible for giving the world Milay Cyrus
Billy Ray Cyrus joke:
The warden asked two condemned prisoners ready for their death sentence if they have any last requests. First prisoner says "Billy Ray Cyrus is my favorite singer- before I die, could I hear "Achy Breaky Heart" one last time?" Warden says it shouldn't be a problem, then he asks prisoner #2 if he has any last request? "Yes I do, Warden, could you kill me first?"

Taylor Swift....Talented musician and song writer. Puts on great shows. I just don't see the attraction to her as a singer. To me, she just doesn't have the pipes.

Gene Chandler. Every time they played Duke Of Earl I wanted to choke, choke, choke him so the song would stop.

8675309 Jenny! Who would produce a recording that's off key? :confused:
Recorded before Auto-Tune and ProTools. Of course the result of using those advanced technologies is mostly homogenized muzak.

Bob Dylan, Neil Young. Both brilliant songwriters, but their vocals are definitely an acquired taste.

I think she has an incredibly good voice but I've never really jived with her music.

Drake....I just don't get why he's so popular or what the draw is to his music.
