We need to come up with a definitive criterion vocals? For instance, Neil Thrasher and Kelly Shiver of Thrasher Shiver sang everything in unison (instead of one leading and one harmonizing), and both halves of Orrall & Wright split the lead on :This article used to consist solely :TenPoundHammer|Otter chirps]] • HELP) 02:35, 3 September 2008 (UTC)

Why is Bennington's picture used here? Of course it's all a matter of opinion, but why him? Someone more iconic would be suitable, maybe Robert Plant? Everyone recognizes him. Plus, if this article is about lead singers, Bennington wouldn't be ideal, due to the occasional rapping in Linkin Park.

Ambiguous lead vocalists[edit]

Someone with enough knowledge should revise the examples given in this section. IMO, for both described categories of ambiguous lead vocalists only three or four well-known, significant examples should be given. Then no more examples should be allowed in. People seem to think they need to misuse these passages to promote their favourite bands.--Sylvia Anna (talk) 15:39, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Front man[edit]

"Front man" should not revert to this page, as not all "front" members of a band are vocalists.--Chimino (talk) 12:45, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

Original research[edit]

Why and where does this article contain original research? How should it be cleaned up? Hyacinth (talk) 22:41, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Lots of errors[edit]

Came to this page and just found LOTS of mistakes, it just worries me because there can be many more I have not saw. I'll do some research and rewrite a lot of paragraphs in the next days. Exemple of factual errors that makes me question this article: Primus is not a band known for having more than one vocalist, Tom Waits, Fred Durst, etc featured on single songs only. Larry Lalonde barely never sang. Rush is not a good exemple of bands with more than one designated singer, Alex Lifeson provided only backing vocals and occasinal spoken words passages in live versions. Underoath changed their sound from Black Metal to Screamo when they where still with their first signer. Rage Against The Machine never changed lead signer. Audioslave was another totally diferent entity, not considered as Rage Against The Machine. Nfs_riffle (talk) 16:22, 6 march 2015 (UTC)
