Sing incorrectly, as in yell instead of actually sing.

I was just seeing peoples thoughts on some popular singers and what you guys thought they do wrong.

Most people on here listen to singers who grunt, make pig noises, squeal and make other assorted noises other than singing. That said, most people on here are spotty mid-teen oiks with arse-length hair.

Tom Araya doesnt sing a lot of the time, more like yells. Slayer is cool though.

i don't think any singer sings incorrectly. they all sing in the right way for their songs.

it just depends on how they want to sing it

Haha. I guess most singers don't sing incorrectly. I was just talking about what bugs people about certain singers and techniques that are used really I guess.

Might have something to do with the fact Bernard Sumner can't sing to save his life and wouldn't know a tune if it bit him on the ass.

I couldn't agree more...which is why that type of music gets boring, because it's ALL the same.
I don't know why Mac users get so defensive when you call them idiots. I mean, Apple is a company that has built its entire user base around the fact that its users can't do simple things like turn their computers on.

Craig Finn from the Hold Steady can't really sing conventionally, but his sing-speaking works perfectly with their songs. I can't imagine them any other way.

What he's doing is actually called sprechgesang, which is a completely legit way of singing, and has been since the early 20th century. Schönberg used it a lot in his vocal pieces.

That sounds more like sprechstimme, which is more like speaking than singing. Sprechgesang is more like singing than speaking.
