I know i have a crappy voice and i cant sing still i wanna be a lead singer in a metal band. But people always seem to care about that the vocals must sound good. Why is that? In pop and modern music i think its more important that the vocals sound good. But in metal? Do you have to sing to be a vocalist in a band?

The vocals are super important, they can swing someone's opinion of a band.

What people considers "good" though is entirely subjective, so no reason to think you won't be awesome as a lead singer.

If you want to be a lead singer in a metal band, how about you work hard to become a good vocalist? Instead of trying to argue that bad is good enough and people are shallow for not accepting that?

I don't know what you want to achieve by being a metal vocalist who doesn't sound good but hopes that people will be content with, but I can assure you that respect and admiration will be difficult to come by.
