* When he was fronting OingoBoingo, DannyElfman was as hammy as they came, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xTPVm8gv8fM especially during live performances]]. And if [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKAxikZmY-0 Jack Skellington]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1qgmdVgN70 Mr.Bonejangles]] are anything to go by, composing hasn't done anything to stop him.

* Roger Waters of Music/PinkFloyd sometimes qualifies for this, especially on "The Gunner's Dream:" ''NIGHT AFTER NIGHT, GOING 'ROUND AND 'ROUND MY BRAIN...HIS DREAM IS DRIVING ME INSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANE...in the corner of some foreign field, a gunner sleeps tonight...''
--> ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6U4XakchT0 WHAT DO YOU GET for pretending the danger's not reeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllll]]''

* Music/{{Megadeth}}'s DaveMustaine is both this in his music and in real life. He is very fond of doing the hammy supervillain voice in his songs, examples include Dawn Patrol, the spoken section in Breakpoint, Captive Honor and Prince Of Darkness, just to name a few. In other cases he will often completely over-sing things, Wake Up Dead features him stretching his voice to breaking point. Good Mourning...Black Friday is probably the hammiest song he has ever done.

* ''Niccolo Paganini'', the legendary Italian violinist, was a rock star for his age, and reportedly ''made of ham''. He also went pretty far in making a rather interesting stage persona (deal with the devil, [[{{Goth}} deadly pale]] and so on...). Some of the people that copied his shtick, like Norwegian superstar ''Ole Bull'' also counts.
* ''Franz Liszt'', a brilliant, unbeatable and rather hammy piano man. (''Play us a tune, you`re the piano ham...'').

* Music/ShirleyBassey's singing style is the musical equivalent of ChewingTheScenery.
* And in the same vein, may I present kd lang's performance of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30iMlTToKps Surrender]]" "TOMORROW NEVER DIIIIIIEEEEESS!"
* From ''AudioPlay/StanFrebergPresentsTheUnitedStatesOfAmerica'':
-->'''King Ferdinand''': I don't like the way the crew is acting!\\
'''Columbus''': You're overplaying it a bit yourself there.



* [[Creator/MontyPython Terry Gilliam]] in the Royal Albert Hall performance of "[[Film/MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian Not The Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy)]]", after the chorus sings "Yes, we are all individuals" strolls in bombastically [[IncomingHam (to a fanfare)]], opens his script dramatically and recites his one line, '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GjgNFPs7eH8 "I'm not!"]]''' then proceeds to laud himself while dramatically exiting the stage. It's hamtastic.
** In fact, the two female singers in that oratorio [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NxTLmLQaS5Q exaggerate as much as possible]], making already nonsensical songs utterly hilarious.
