* Jonas Renske from Katatonia sings like he's permanently on the verge of having an emotional breakdown after being traumatized for years.

Basically, this trope is the difference between e.g.[[Music/SonicYouth Ciccone Youth's]] version [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUCLoPFvNKY "Into the groove"]] and {{Music/Madonna}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ne3wtH9aym0 original]].

** "The Distance" is actually not typical of John [=McCrea=]'s vocal style. He doesn't normally deliver the lyrics like a robot. Normally he sounds more like [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hf8AiX-ELVY this]], using a vocal style called ''sprechgesang''.

* For the Music/VelvetUnderground, there's Lou's dry version (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6xcwt9mSbYE ) and Music/{{Nico}}'s Euro-dirge one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_KiU5P4ihIQ ). John Cale also definitely qualifies, as does his replacement, Doug Yule. Velvet Underground may well be the {{Trope Maker}}s.

* NeilYoung does this in his very early recordings, e.g. "On The Way Home" and "After The Gold Rush". Some fans consider him the TropeMaker.

The PerishingAltRockVoice may be interspersed with {{Metal Scream}}s and Stuttering Wailing; it also frequently leads to {{Mondegreen}}s and IndecipherableLyrics, as well as SomethingSomethingLeonardBernstein. A staple of {{Grunge}} and ShoeGazing, as well as the bread and butter of DreamPop, with a tendency to make surprise appearances in {{Industrial}}. May overlap in use with Emo Whispering and {{Yarling}}: while it's easy to sound perishing if you're singing nasally [[note]]because you're actually blocking the nose and thereby getting less air[[/note]], a lot of perishing singers (like Music/MyBloodyValentine, or Thom from {{Radiohead}}) aren't nasal at all, and (as per above) they're usually far from emoting overtly. Not infrequently crosses over into CreepyMonotone or DissonantSerenity. Related to ThreeChordsAndTheTruth, in that the more fanatical ones regard polished, full-bodied singing as fake and scratchy singing as authentic.

* Ditto Ronnie Martin of JoyElectric. Perhaps he doesn't want to sound out of place among all those synthesizers.

* Anders Friden from InFlames, when he's not [[HarshVocals growling]], uses a vocal style that is very reminiscent of this trope despite InFlames being a MelodicDeathMetal band. (although their later work incorporates greater levels of AlternativeMetal.

* Brian Molko of {{Placebo}}, moreso in earlier songs.
* The Wygal sisters of {{Splendora}} were queens of the alt-rock monotone, which is almost certainly why they got to do the theme song for ''{{Daria}}''.

* OKGo tends towards this, but the level of "perishing" varies between songs. The most evident example is probably their cover of TheCure's "The Lovecats," which is [[IntercourseWithYou fairly obviously]] of the "sexed-out bliss" variety.

* NickDrake may not be the TropeMaker (Lou Reed and John Cale probably have a heavier claim) but he could certainly qualify as one of the {{Trope Codifier}}s.
