Mainstream bands with more than one (good) lead singer?

Need help with a list of mainstream bands who had success with more than one equally capable lead singer all in the group at the same time.
Good examples: The Cars (Ocasek/Orr) and The Who (Daltrey/Townshend) had big hits from both guys.
Not good examples:
- Van Halen (lineup changes don't count)
- Queen (Mercury was front man but Taylor occasionally sang, i.e. "I'm in Love with My Car")
- 'Traveling Wilburys'-type aggregations of performers
- Obscure, indie or other groups who the "average person" would not recognize
I guess the more you have to justify/qualify/explain your response, it's probably not fitting the bill.
