This is personal taste for sure. What classifies as a bad singer anyway? And if they made it big, then surely a lot of people didn't mind the vocals.

DLR and Vince for instance probably don't have what's classed as great voices. However I can't imagine early VH or MC without them! Same with Bon Scott or Lemmy.

For me The Darkness is one. Horrible vocalist. But I'm sure some here love him, and the band probably wouldn't be anywhere near as big without his style tbh.

Alice Cooper is another. I love Alice. But his vocals IMO aren't good. But his voice has a creepiness to it that suits his theme.

Dave Mustaine can't sing. But I wouldn't want anyone else and couldn't imagine anyone else fronting Megadeth.

Gene Simmons. Now his gruffness probably played off nicely to Paul's voice, but i never rated Gene as a vocalist.

Lastly, Ringo Starr. While not the lead singer, he was in arguably the biggest band ever and sang enough lead tracks. I cringe whenever i hear one of his songs.
