I thought about a GDR punk band called Die Skeptiker, their singer learned how to sing in a school......I want you to judge about it.....(this is a good song to hear it I think: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfmOW8RJKoM )

http://www.myspace.com/dieskeptiker

Furthermore I think their guitarist is good you might think about that as well


So I know you all and that you tend to be calm when it´s about non-anglo bands, so I ´m also intersted in punk bands whose singers are educated singers as well.

EDIT: to keep it clear I asking for singers who received a real vocal education and I´m also asking to judge whether the singer od Die Skeptiker sounds good, since he received such an education.

I'm not exactly sure what the question is. If it's about whether punk singers are actually allowed to sing properly, then the answer is yes. All punk is about is getting on stage and playing regardless of whether you are any good, and having a point to make. They can be talented, or they can be simple, out of time, 3 chord progressions. Doesn't matter...

Am I anywahere near what you actually meant?

Rancid are the best punk band ever.

Tim Armstrong is a songwriting genius, is a complete fashion diva and has an incredible singing voice.

He doesn't sound like Opie from family guy at all.

oh one more answer......are there maybe educated female singers? I mean Excene Cervenka or Poly Styrene or the singer of Deadline?


for some reason I remember reading something on X and I think I remember it saying how john doe was a trained singer, but Exene was not...

edit:
Wikipedia: "except Cervenka, all band members had previous musical experience before forming X"

I'm pretty sure Poly Stryene was classically trained...I could be completely wrong though

If you're looking for singers with an education (which you're not), I'd go with Milo Aukerman, as he has a Ph.D. in biochemistry. Anti-Flag and NOFX are also very politically influenced at the moment, which would hint towards educated minds behind their mics.
