20 Bands That Changed Their Lead Singers And Got Lost



Music is a controversial butterfly and when we, as listeners, establish a connection with a band, we invest in the lead singer.

What happens when our favorite bands swap out their all important famous face?

Here are 20 bands that changed their lead singers and, in doing so, lost their most important asset!

1. Mötley Crüe

The heavy metal band was formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1980 and was one of the largest names in their niche. They were founded by bass guitarist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee. Lee was later famous for some other things, including his marriage and sex tapes he made with Pamela Anderson.

They became a true band when they were joined by lead guitarist Mick Mars and lead singer Vince Neil.

As the 1990′s brought us grunge music, Vince Neil apparently lost his swag and left the band.

There’s still a veil of mystery on whether Neil was fired or he quit himself. Guitarist Sixx has always said that Neil voluntarily quit the band. However, Neil said that he was actually fired from the band.

Singer John Corabi (of Angora and The Scream), replaced him. He did have some big shoes to fill, but the band was just not the same after Vince’s departure.
