So I'm in three bands, two of which I don't even like. But in the band I do like, we can never seem to find time to practice. In the last month, we've had one practice. I admit, once and a while I can't make it cuz I'm going on a date or at another bands practice, but almost every time, its the singer/rhythm guitarist who cancels. Either hes got paintball or some other stupid thing he doesn't really need to do. And I can't kick him out, even though he has no talent at guitar, singing, or songwriting. I think there'd probably be no more band if that happened since the other two never come if he doesn't. What am I supposed to do?

I can actually sing better than him
But I still don't feel comfortable kicking him out
I may do what the other guy said and just threaten to kick him out

Why can't you kick him out?
If you don't want him out, then just get everyone together and ask what night is usually open for them. Agree on something and say that if practice isn't important enough to schedule around, then they're out.

I say who ever is available for practice, practice with them. If the guy doesn't care enough to show up for practice, show him that you don't need him and fire his a**. Don't cancel because of him.

I wouldnt be surprised if the first thing Varg did was sign up for WoW so he could kick some Judeo-Christian ass.

Ask him if it's okay for you to find someone else to sing when he's not there. I used the same basic idea with my girlfriend. Just kidding :P
