Top 10 Best Vocal Section Bands
The results of this week's WQ are here! As you might remember, we asked you guys to single out the tightest vocal section band, or the group that features the finest vocalists as a whole. Check out the list you rounded up below.

10. Porcupine Tree

Steven Wilson and co. get to kick things off. As TheLiberation kindly noted, the following track just might be "the greatest and most powerful use of multiple/layered vocals ever."

9. Red Hot Chili Peppers (Frusciante era)

You specifically pointed out that the lineup featuring John Frusciante is the only way to go. John definitely brought something unique to the mix, which you can clearly see in the band's performance.

8. Simon and Garfunkel

Early masters of vocal harmonies rightfully get a spot on the list. Pretty much every hit they made featured multiple singing layers.

7. The Beach Boys

Those early classics really featured some stunning vocals. The Beach Boys are up next as a band in which everyone sang, something many of today's younger acts should look up to.

6. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

They had a rocky relationship, were politically active, and each of the guys got inducted to the Rock Hall twice, but what made them stand out the most are stunning vocal harmonies. It's Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young!

5. Mastodon

Mr rightintwo summed this one up quite nicely: "Troy brings the demons. Brann gives the melody. Bill brings the screams. Brent brings a really f--ked up squeaky noise I can"t explain. And also weed. And a wooden dick."

4. Alice in Chains (Layne Staley era)

Once again, a specific era was singled out. And as expected, it's the one featuring late Layne Staley on lead vocals, and of course mastermind Jerry Cantrell bringing in the second set of vocal pipes.

3. System of a Down

These guys know how to deliver chaos. Serj and Daron might have different voices, but they still manage to harmonize them perfectly.

2. The Beatles

The other guys are nice, genius even, but the harmonies Beatles brought to the table are just out of this world.

1. Queen

And the No. 1 singing band is... Queen! Some of you thought of it as a no-brainer, and it turns out it was, as the guys reeled in a hefty amount of votes, more than enough for the gold medal.
