** Criss is an odd example, as he was the clear Garfunkel of the group, despite being regarded as the best singer of the four, giving a great performance on "Black Diamond", otherwise known as the only Kiss song the average music fan will actually admit to liking. this is most likely due to fact that he rarely wrote any of the songs he sang lead on

** Initially, Ricky Lee Phelps sang lead vocals, while his brother Doug sang backup and played bass. Both Phelpses left in the 1990s over Ricky Lee's CreativeDifferences, with Mark S. Orr and Anthony Kenney taking their respective places. Orr left after only one album, so Doug came back and took over on lead vocals (and once again became bassist after Kenney quit).

Richard has gotten at least one turn on lead vocals for every album since (to the point that 2011's ''Dixie Lullabies'' is split about 50/50, and even has Richard and Doug singing a unison lead vocal on the title track), and has split backing vocal duties with lead guitarist Greg Martin following Kenney's departure.
* An odd variation came with CountryMusic band Little Texas. Initially, Tim Rushlow was the official lead singer, but their first three albums have at least one song each sung by keyboardist Brady Seals (including [[BlackSheepHit their only #1 hit]] "My Love", the only single under their original lineup which was not sung by Rushlow), while the third and fourth (by which point Jeff Huskins had replaced Seals) also give one song each to rhythm guitarist Dwayne O'Brien. O'Brien also sang lead on the band's cover of "Peaceful Easy Feeling" for the multi-artist compilation ''Common Thread: The Songs of the Music/{{Eagles}}''. Following a 1997 disbanding, the four remaining members (O'Brien, drummer Del Gray, guitarist Porter Howell, and bassist Duane Propes) reunited with new lead vocalist Steven Troy, due to both Rushlow and Seals being in other groups at the time.

* Michigan comedic musical group Music/DaYoopers. Most of their lead vocals have been the guitarist (Joe Potila until 1995, then Jim Bellmore ever since), or the only two original members: frontman/occasional drummer Jim [=DeCaire=] and keyboardist Lynn Bellmore. However, nearly every album has given at least one song to nearly everyone who has ever been counted as an official member of their RevolvingDoorBand, except for Bobby Symons (drummer since at least the late 90s). One of their signature songs, "Grandpa Got Run Over by a Beer Truck", was sung by Dave "Doc" Bradbury, who was bassist for only a short time in the early 90s.
** [=DeCaire=] and Potila were also the primary songwriters, with Bellmore also taking over the latter role after Potila left. The only other members who have ever written anything are Joe [=DeLongchamp=] (their bassist from about 1987-89), who penned and sang the title track to their third album ''Camp Fever'' (the next album, ''Yoop It Up'', also had him sing lead on "Drinking Resort"). The other is Lynn, who co-wrote "Don't Go Up Dere" on ''One Can Short of a 6-Pack''. That album and and ''We're Still Rockin''', the next one in line, featured outside writers assisting on "40 Lb. Crappie" and "Bathroom Mercenary", respectively.
** Taking this trope even further, most of their albums (except their debut ''Yoopanese'' and 1991's ''Yoopy Do Wah'') have had contributions from local musicians on vocals and/or instruments. ''21st Century Yoopers in Space'' had several songs written and/or sung by guests.
** Percussionist Jerry Coffey sang "30 Pound Diaper" in concert at least a decade before it appeared on an album. As he left in the mid-2000s, the studio version on ''21st Century Yoopers in Space'' is sung by bassist Reggie Lusardi instead the only time he ever sang on a studio cut. Coffey also sang "Super Dooper Yooper Love Machine" on ''Jackpine Savage'', but after his departure, Bellmore sometimes sang the song in concert.

* Music/BrooksAndDunn are an interesting variations. Their albums featured a fairly even split between Ronnie Dunn and Kix Brooks on lead vocals, but out of their fifty singles, only six were sung by Kix: "Lost and Found", "Rock My World (Little Country Girl)", "You're Gonna Miss Me When I'm Gone" (their only #1 hit on which he sang lead), "Mama Don't Get Dressed Up for Nothing", "Why Would I Say Goodbye", and "South of Santa Fe". The last of those was released in 1999, a good 10 years before they split up, and supposedly withdrawn just shy of the top 40 because program directors were saying that they didn't want another Kix song. And on most of the other 44 songs, Kix is either barely audible (perhaps because they tended to use studio backing vocalists as well) or just plain nonexistant.
