The 11 Best Bands Who Replaced Their Singer:

It's tough to accept a new Alice in Chains album is in stores. And it's not really because it's hard to accept that Layne has been replaced...what is hardest to accept is that it's finally official that he's really gone. He will be missed...but that's no reason for the band not to go on. Jerry Cantrell wrote most of the music...and sang on a lot of the there's not a very radical departure from their earlier material. The new singer does a decent job...and the album is overall very respectable to the Layne AIC legacy.

If we're counting Jerry Cantrell, don't we count Bernard Sumner? In which case, where's New Order!!!
