I voted for kurt. Its strange his voice is so melodic (is that even a word :oops: :? ) and its so moany and groany at the same time, plus it fits so well with their music. Also Kurt and Dave sound great when they're in sync. a good example is In Bloom or Polly.

I thought Dave sounded good by himself too on "marigold" too.
Spring is here again, tender age in bloom, he knows not what it means, sell the kids for food, we can have some more.

I vote Chris Cornell, I think his vocal work on Temple oF the Dog is absoulty awesome. Other songs like "Fell on Black Days" "The Day I Tired To Live" and "Seasons" show case off his voice very well.

So do some songs in Audioslave, like "I am the Highway" and "Getaway Car".

However, Eddie Vedder and Layne Staley are close seconds. In fact if I wasn't on a huge Temple of the Dog/Soundgarden thing right now I might have had a different vote.

That's cool.


I like Eddie's Voice over Cobains, personally.
