I would say that some of those frontmen can be annoying but on the flipside, some of them are incredible frontmen and their band would be nothing without them.

Cheers to Chicago Metromix for speaking the truth! However, I would have had Bono as the undisputed #1, followed by Sting and Chris Martin respectively. I also would have added: Marilyn Manson, Trent Reznor, Lenny Kravitz (although technically not a "frontman") Zack de la Rocha, and all 3 of the Jonas Brothers. Good stuff nonetheless...

This list is complete bullshit. Each and everyone of these singers (with the exception of a few) are rock legends and will go down in rock history. Annoying, no! Amazing, yes!

That is pure jealousy .

Some of your list is spot on, some I really do not agree on others:
For example, Thom Yorke seems like a pretty shy/sweet type of person to me. How does that come off as annoying?
And Eddie Vedder is amazing on the stage. Now, he's far more laid back then he used to be, but in the early 90's, he was an amazing performer. What annoys them about him? There's no reasons for this list. xD
Billy Corgan's voice might annoy some people, I personally love it. He's actually not much of a showy performer, he'll usually just stand there, sing and play guitar. What's so annoying about that?
I agree, some musicians on this list are totally there because of jealousy.

Hmm... this is a pretty random list. Some are spot on... some, uh... NO. At least you nailed the top spot. Some of the others on the list make me just think you're a bitter, easily annoyed person.

Anthony Kiedis could easily be higher... Close to the top actually. I mean really... he's annoying.

These guys don't belong on this list:
Ed Kowalczyk
Thom Yorke
Eddie Vedder

Sounds like you have issues about people who make the rock scene happen and you don't. That's just too bad. Maybe you should have listened to mommy a little more about taking those music lesson after all!!!

Vedder would lead my list as annoying, but he is indispensable to Pearl Jam.
Rose is indispensable to GNRs, and the man can still sing.
Kiss' head guy should lead the list.
Steven Tyler just because Aerosmith sucks should be high on the list.

JMHO, and what do I know? As much and as little as anyone else.
