Two voices are better than one!

The only thing better than a vocalist is two vocalists. If you thought that metalcore had dominated in this category, you'd be wrong. Here's 12 bands that prove that two is better than one.

01. GOOD CHARLOTTE

What better way to kick off a list of duo-vocalists than with the Madden brothers? While Joel has always been the vocalist of the band, we're seeing that Benji is increasingly sharing vocal duties with him, and we're very here for it. 

02. I PREVAIL

With their sick blend of clean vocals from Brian Burkheiser and screaming from Erick Vanlerberghe, I Prevail's sound is infectious and incredible.

03. MAYDAY PARADE

Before Jason Lancaster started Go Radio, he shared vocal duties with Derek Sanders in Mayday Parade. Which led to the phenomenal two-part chorus in 'Miserable At Best' which continues to be one of the most endearing choruses in pop-punk. Don't @ us.

04. ISSUES

Before the departure of Michael Bohn earlier this year, he shared vocal duties with Tyler Carter. And it was glorious.

05. BLINK-182

Whether it's Tom DeLonge or Matt Skiba accompanying Mark Hoppus on vocals, one thing is for certain- Blink-182 prove that two vocalists are better than one.

06. UNDEROATH

Underoath's signature sound is carefully crafted with their unique mix of Spencer Chamberlain paired with Aaron Gillespie's sweet, sweet clean vocals. And we wouldn't have it any other way.

07. ALKALINE TRIO

Matt Skiba certainly seems to enjoy sharing the vocal lime-light, doesn't he?

08. SEAWAY

If you thought that multiple vocalists were only a part of metalcore? This list has put the egg well and truly on your face. Have some sick, duo-vocalist pop-punk from Seaway.

09. ROAM 

10. WAGE WAR

These up and coming future titans of metalcore have mastered the art of perfectly balancing clean and unclean vocals.

HONOURABLE MENTIONS:

11. LINKIN PARK

Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington were pioneers of shared vocals. The alternative music world will never be the same.

12. WE CAME AS ROMANS

Make sure you look into the Kyle Pavone Foundation, and honour the late We Came As Romans vocalist.
