Singing LOW

I like to sing along to songs in my car. Sometimes it sucks though as I have kind of a low voice. My lowest note comfortably is an E (like the low E on guitar), although sometimes I can get to a D. I can sing a little less than 2 octaves, but past that it really hurts my throat.

Pop music (pretty flexible and broad definition of "pop" though) prefers high singers. In classical music, tenors are the stars.

Name some good singers that had those low voices which are ultimately superior.

Julian Casablancas from The Strokes. (Not really a good singer. He just has a cool voice)

Lou Rawls.

I have a similar voice range to you. Which is perfect because I can do the guitar for For Whom the Bell Tolls perfectly while performing it a Capella with my band mates.

I can't go low at all though so I'm ultimately inferior.

Edit: The lowest I can go is B flat 2 or first fret A string by the way (without using vocal fry/ sounding like shit).

I would post singers but I don't any on the top of my head other than obvious ones like Johnny Cash

I feel your pain. I'm a bass (D2-F#4). Last night I pushed my voice just to see how high I could go (it didn't sound good) and I got a Bb4 out, but I lost half my range after that because I pushed too hard.

Matt Barlow. Probably my favorite vocalist. He's capable of doing really high stuff too, but his lows are just ballin'.
