1. Ian Mackaye
Before I knew what he looked like I imagined him as John Goodman
Tom Waits. There’s an amazing clip from the Late Review (or something like that) where one of the guests lays into Tom for putting on a fake voice when he talks. And Tom Waits just keeps on saying, “What do you mean? What are you talking about? This is my real voice,” over and over again.

Nick Cave (circa The Birthday Party)
I was thinking of jack black...
1) Guttural, throaty, death metal style vocalist
2) High pitched, shrieky one.
See Brutal Truth for further details.
there aint no queue for the summartime bwue
actually no, it's just so affected it makes me want to smack him.
Dio, god rest his soul
Her from Bearsuit, the squealy one

klaus nomi, nina hagen, grace jones, john lydon, ian curtis. actually it's really funny to sing just about any song you can think of in the style of ian curtis. go on, try it.....

when i first heard the milk-eyed mender i thought she was mentally challenged (in the good way of course).
I still giggle a bit when I hear her voice but I've come to love it, especially after seeing them live. The contrast between her voice and Sierra's is brilliant.
People complain saying it sounds like he's singing whist grinding his teeth but I say that as a compliment
