Sugarcubes singer: fifth worst in history

Einar Örn Benediktsson, one of two vocalists in the Icelandic band the Sugarcubes, was chosen the fifth worst singer of all time by UK music magazine Q. Björk, the band’s other vocalist, was chosen the 35th best singer in history.

“I think I can be proud to be on that list,” Benediktsson told Fréttabladid. Only Mariah Carey, Celine Dion, Fred Durst and Ozzy Osbourne, who was chosen the worst singer of all time, finished lower on the list of the 100 worst singers.

Q also published a list of the 100 best singers in history.

Apart from Björk, another Icelander made it to that list. Jón Thór Birgisson, the lead singer of Sigur Rós, was no. 100. Elvis Presley was chosen the best singer of all time.
