    Question Any adjective for a bad voice?

    Hi,
    Is there informal way of describing someone's voice which is so bad (ugly) that gives others a headache?!




    Thanks!

    And there are alternatives - similar in that they describe what the voice does or could do: 'a voice that shatters glass' springs to mind.
