I can't stand Gwen Stefani of No Doubt. I may like one or two of their songs, but Gwen annoys me. Her voice is whiny and her songs are shallow and are not about complex topics.

Now, Shirley Manson of Garbage is awesome! She has a strong voice along with great songwriting about the complexity of life and love. Oh, and Garbage's latest CD is freakin' great!

I love Gwen! I'm not saying the lyrics are that deep and meaningful, but live she's incredible and really works her ass off up there.

Other front-people I love: Bono, Guy Garvey!!!, Robert Plant, Shirley Manson, Brandon Flowers.

Frontpeople who I don't like: Caleb Followill, Paul Banks (not a fan of his vocal), and at times Chris Martin.

Kiedis would be one of my most hated. By far the worst thing about the band.

if the RHCP were an instrumental band maybe i'd like them. And especially after reading Scar Tissue and how he treated [my favorite pin-up] Christina Hendricks I can't even stand the sight of him much-less his voice.

I still want to know why you threw Van Morrison in there as a "frontman"!

Most people probably barely remember he ever fronted a group.

As cliche as it may be, Jagger is probably the G.O.A.T.

I say Johnny Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols)
There was just something about him, not to mention he was the typical 'spoiled rockstar'. Sure the Sex Pistols are influential and a super important band to punk history, but Johnny was a horrible frontman. He neglected himself with personal hygeine, (ew) and he was so arrogant! Arrogant and conceited to the point he felt himself to be a "monument". Plus, He didn't get along well with band members, he was extremely sarcastic (not in a funny way, either) and treated them like they were 'the help' or something.

So, I say either Lydon or maybe Axl Rose.
