Who do you think has the worst tone?

I nominate Billie Joe Armstrong.

I don't like that guy from the Ramones that everyone else seems to love. His guitar sound has no definition, it's just obnoxious. easily the worst.

As a side note (I know I'll catch hell for this) I never liked Randy Rhoads' sound. Great guy, never liked his sound.

I kinda agree with you. The Ramones tone is awful in my opinion, and Randy's guitar tone is actually not the best one either, although the songs are classics and therefore he is forgiven :icon_thum

However, one of the best guitar tones, in my opinion, is Judas Priest's guitar tone on the Sad Wings Of Destiny record.

As I consider Randy to be my guardian angel, I think his tone is wonderful.

Billy Corigen (sp) from Smashing Pumpkins tone is like nails on a blackboard.

Jimmi Page had awesome tone, for his era, but for my era, I'll have to go with Eddie Van Halen, innovative, unique, and EVERYONE coppied his sound

Jimmy is great, but this thread is about the worst tone...

So far, it seems people really hate the punk approach to guitar.

I was just thinking about his tone, and whether I liked it or not.

I don't care for his sound sometimes, but he's a good player.

there is nothing wrong with his tone, although he just isn't that great of a player. At the same time, he is a lead singer, so I wouldn't expect much talent.
Umm, Hendrix was a lead singer too, dude. So have many other great lead players. They don't even have to play lead: Joe Strummer kicked ass either way.

Billy Joe's tone is terrible in my opinion, though. He's a terrible singer, and player. It's too trebly, without any bass.
