    Have you tried to use the tube screamer on a bus/duplicated track and mix with the original? That's what I did to the project I'm currently doing and it really added some balls to the vocals when mixed just slightly..

    If i were you i would re-record the vocals, it's hard to make shitty vocals good with effects.

    ^ Definitely this. If the vocals aren't good quality in the first place its going to be hard to get them to sound good with distortion.

    That is a really great idea, I normally just slap on a distortion plugin on the actual vocals but its normally way too powerful. I like the idea of bussing it.

    I found out some tape saturation seems to give some life to dull/weak sounding vocals, when used sparingly.

    Try the decapitator and a limiter pushd to the max, and your compressors, you'll get a nice aggressive effect
