Favorite guest vocals
 
This thread was inspired by a short conversation had with a person in the Don't Panic stream thread. A few people couldn't hear Anthony Raneri's guest spot, and one of them brought up a few other guest spots on songs he couldn't hear them on. It got me thinking about some of my favorite guest vocals, and I'm curious as to what other people would have to say as well.

In no order, here are some of my favorites:

Kenny Vasoli on The Early November's "Fluxy"
Vinnie Caruana on Bayside's "The Walking Wounded"
Vinnie Caruana on Midtown's "Become What You Hate"
Matt Embree on V.I.T.A.L. Emcee's "The Writing On The Wall"
Dallas Green on Every Time I Die's "INRIhab"
Daryl Palumbo on Finch's "Grey Matter"
Keith Goodwin on The Starting Line's "Left Coast Envy"
The DuPree sisters on New Found Glory's "Boulders"
Aaron Marsh on Lydia's "Hospital"
Hailee Coppage on Brighten's "While The Fire Was Out"
Will Pugh on New Found Glory's cover of "Iris"

Not necessarily my favorite, but the first one that comes to mind is The Wonder Years' All My Friends Are In Bar Bands.

I liked the guest vocals on "Hey Thanks" by The Wonder Years, but not many people like that song.

So lets go:

Hayley Williams on "Set your Goals- The Few That Remain"
Sierra Kusterbeck on "A Day To Remember- If It Means A Lot To You"

Love Dallas Green's ETID spot. I'll add Jason Butler on PTV's "Tangled in the Great Escape"

Nate Ruess in the Hey, Everything's Great version of Limbeck's "Brand New Orange."

Right?! I honestly never even picked up on it being him until pretty recently. Now I can't unhear it, hahah.

Not a huge SYG fan, but there are a few solid songs on that record, and I do like the way they incorporated her guest spot into that song. Do you know if they do that little stop in the song during live performances? Obviously she can't be there for every show, so I feel like that transition would be kind of awkward live.

Adam Duritz on "So Long, So Long" by Dashboard Confessional.

Didn't know this one, I never got into Dusk and Summer. Maybe it's time I gave that record a full spin. Nothing like being 6 years late to the game.

I really like Skiba's guest spot on H2O's "What Happened?"

Look Mexico's Matt Agrella guesting on Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate)'s "An Idea Is A Greater Monument Than A Cathedral" is unbeatable

Never listened to Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) before, but I liked that a lot. Any recommendation on where I should start with them?
