Ugly sounding distortion can take several forms.

Harsh grainy sound
Sound cuts out or squawks on loud notes
Muffled or constricted sound
Faint out of tune sound on every note
Excessive power supply ripple, usually indicating that the power filter capacitors are going bad. This can also be caused by speaker cones and voice coils with problems so they just rub slightly, too.
