The Top Ten

Justin Bieber
You-Know-Who (I am so ashamed to even type his/HER name) is a fool who does not know how to spell music. I would suggest him/HER to go for a sex change operation cause one must be what he/SHE wants to be and You-Know-Who is a lesbian.
he should sing... nursery rhymes
thats his voice


Words can't describe how terrible he is, so I'm just going to bitch about some other things on this list. First off, Metallica should NOT be on here. I can't defend other metal bands (although I do love all of them) that are on here, but Metallica inspired so many other artists

2Jonas Brothers
There isn't a band more Annoying then The Jonas Brothers
they write horrible music!
the little girls that scream and cheer for them are just as Annoying!


Are you kidding?! The Beatles are ahead of these losers? Come on, guys! These guys are over played hacks who have no soul. They seem like very nice gentlemen, but they are not musicians and they are given too much credit.


its not funny, that metallica is above these jokers...

3Britney Spears
This list is so stupid the only people I really hate on here are britney spears, jonas brother, justin bieber *gags*, paris hilton, madonna and the black eyed peas. This list is horrible and is just aimed to upset people who are reading hurtful comments about their favourite band/singer. My Chemical Romance are amazing and my favourite band of all time they shouldn't be in this list and the comments about them really boil my blood and it annoys me even more at the fact they know their upsetting lots of people, so next time just keep the nasty comments to yourself. Ok? Thanks.

How did Metallica and the Beatles get any where near this list, apparently nobody has ever heard of a thing called MOST POP SONGS, Metallica at least still makes a few good songs, and The Beatles are one of the founding gods of Rock, paving the way for all of the greatest bands ever and, unfortunately, most bands on this list, like Bieber
Every single person who voted for Avenged Sevenfold can go die in the flames of hell.

Avenged Sevenfold is not annoying, or even close to annoying. A7X can kick the crap out of any other band.

4Miley Cyrus
I hate to be that person but she really is a bad role model for kids.
I hate her voice...


5Paris Hilton


What even? Avenged came before this dumb girl? Well, that shows what type of people we are...
Most annoying girl ever! Go to hell, Paris Hilton! You can't sing or act! I swear, then she read this... well, you know. SHE WILL CRY LIKE BABY! "BWUÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄ! MOMMY! I CAN'T TAKE CARE OF MY SELF! I'M STUPID! "

6The Black-Eyed Peas
Manufactured, trashy, superficial, tacky, immature, forced.
Whoever imagined that stuttering, spelling and overused onomatopoeia might be lyrically interesting and attractive... Well imagined it wrong.
Penetrating ear drums and nerves is a bad attempt of desparately trying to be catchy. Quit it, please.
Why are they also singing dumb songs? I gotta feeling you guys are dumb. Boom boom pow! That's the sound of everyone hitting you and trashing your dumb songs.
Heres whats really annoying, they have had one good song, and if you look at some of the work Fergie has done outside the group, shes not terrible, she actually does really well with slash, one of the gods of rock, and yet they make songs like dirty bit, one of the worst catchy songs of all time.

750 Cent

oh my god I called IT a musician...
but Rick Astley must be first


I agree with the monkey comment. He's trash. I'm surprised he hasn't been offed.


Sounds like someone taught a gorilla to talk but the gorilla just ends up saying the same thing over and over
More comments about 50 Cent

Just like Limp Bizkit, Nickleback has become the butt of the joke known as 21st century music. But for good reason. The reason they annoy me isn't because they're the worst artist. It's because they're so sickeningly average. Bieber and the Disney Team are worse, but not as popular.
All of their songs sound EXACTLY the same. Get some variety.


Nickelback is retarted. Nickelback is retarted. Who agrees with me? Who agrees with me? I really hate chad kroegers singing it just sends me over the edge. And their guitar is probably half computer-generated!

9One Direction
One question- why the heck is Coldplay higher than One Direction? What is WRONG with this planet?!


They are only liked for looks, just like the jonas brothers when they were popular but at least they could play instruments and wrote some of their songs. And their fans are kind of obssessed with them like they are gods, no offense.


I hate these little ding-a-lings. They're untalented and have truly. One of the most annoying fanbases ever, along with Philly fans, bielbers, and Twihards.

10Taylor Swift
She sucks. All she does is cry about her fruitless life. She seriously makes me want to puke! God! She cries about a mean girl and a guy she likes and all that. She is SO depressing. I will NEVER be able to understand WHY some girls think of her as a role-model.
Look, I don't know Taylor Swift in real life. She might be the coolest person in the world, and I understand that her music is not at all for someone like me. But Michael J. Fox, Marty McFly himself, said it best in describing her: "Writes songs about everyone she goes out with? What a way to build a career. "
I don't understand why everyone loves her so much! She complains about her love-less life and sings AWFULLY! I want to take her little country banjo and smack her in the face with it!

The Contenders

Ever since Gangnam style released people will not shut the hell up
SINCE people started doing flash mobs to "Gangnam Style", people JUST cannot sit their damn butts down.
I hate him very much

12Rebecca Black
I am shocked.
Rebecca Black only number 10.
Goodness gracious, this is the most appalling grading ever.
Put this spoilt artist right to the top of this list and cement it there.
Why even try to put this spoiled artist on record labels? No way that people dislike this girl.

13Avenged Sevenfold
This is ridulous.
Avenged sevenfold is one of the most talented rock/metal groups out there.
Uggh, I can't find any redeeming quality about this thing that people call a "band". Each member is, at best, mediocre at what they do. Their songs and playing style is forgettable. All in all, an extremely mediocre band that plays to the masses, deluding thousands of people into thinking that it is good music being played.


I hate em because not someone asks me to dislike them but they are one of the band with the most common sound. they're sound are like metallica with few differences.

14Hillary Duff
The beat of my heart just repeats itself over and over again
she should just go away so we can all have our ears stop bleeding
the beat of my heart just stopped because i suck so much - hilary duff

Madonna is the worst. God knows how she sold 300 million albums. She is queen of marketing and shamelessness not pop. Way too overrated, way too annoying. I can't stand her. She should never have been a singer because she spoiled the art of popular music and made it cheap money making schemes. Being an inspiration for artists like Britney and Rihanna. She is a very bad actress also. God save us from her music and movies.
A genius at marketing and promotion; a mediocre singer/musician at best. Her "music" is derivative and she has only about 2 or 3 good songs.
Let's face it... She's only famous for her scandalous moves and lyrics back in the days... She can't sing and most definitely she can't dance...

16Puff Daddy/P Diddy/etc
They say he can sell anything!... Except his music (bad boy is only famous because of biggie)
Straight up, his music blows. I also hate him because he had a cool name, Sean Combs (I don't know if that's how he spells it), and he changed it to a stupid name: Puff Daddy, then to Puffy, then to P Diddy, then to Diddy, then PD, then back to Sean Combs... MAKE A DECISION!
I just wish he would grow up and pick a DAMN name instead of all the little nicknames like come on

17Avril Lavigne

She has a very pathetic reputation and is a well known poser. She is manufactured pop if I've ever heard it.


Without a dought the worst solo artist of all time. Scratch that. The worst artist ever.

Her songs makes me want to kill myself not to mention she covered Metallica and System of a Down for which she should die

18Kanye West
How is that stuck up snot nosed no-talent not number one? He is just the epitome snootiness and self-praise.


This guy calls himself the next " king of hip hop ". He would not even last 5 minutes in a rap battle.

Great name, perfect songs, very good man, KING, KING, KING!!!
Laugh out loud you gunther fans are bland


Stupid Name, stupid songs, stupid person, STUPID STUPID STUPID!


20Tokio Hotel

I hate Shakira she sings like a man or a goat her dancing is weird and scary she has no talent she is an idiot she is the worst singer ever I don't know why people like her she is so dumb, she has no talent her singing voice makes me want to vomit.


She thinks her hips dont lie, well neither does the decision of the public! Shakira sucks!


Why is she even famous she is the worst of the worst ewwwwwwwwwwwwww yuck so over rated

22Ayumi Hamasaki
her voice is like a cat's tail trapped under a rocking chair *~*


23Stephanie McIntosh
But Delta [Goodrem] has fallen too... No longer like 'Innocent Eyes' times, she's developed a huge EGO (narcissistic kind of self self-pride... Real plastic, and those 'fake' smiles! ) gotten a terrible slack, lazy and careless attitude, deluded, no empathy, shallow (Smells so Britney, C. Aquilera, P. Hilton too! - Oh Madonna 'hat'like poses! )... Sang with no talent fools like that Brian McFadden (A former member of Westlife, absolutely awful, the last one was a Smashing pianos one 'Mistakes'... A real shocker! ), is just about always in the US ($Hollywood actually... What awful fan loyalty?!?... eek, even has a fake US accent)... More image than music focused (More for crappy romances in Caribbean, Bali... In the hot sun... No Music! ). Her 3rd Album is rather bland and dull, over-polished, americanised, Westlife cheese and a number of Marian/Celine Dion attempts that are utter screechy, deserted by many former loyal fans as a result of that album. Yes Delta has gone bad, personality is quite like P. Hilton too (I've met her, its true... 'I feel so proud' she blurbed at me... *sigh*()... Gone so rotten, and Over-spoilt in my perception and that so big EGO & 'plastic' self-pride!... Wouldn't mind sending her to Russia/Siberia! - A Miley Cyrus fan too (OMG! what awful music), and yes she sang with that Whiney over-hyped US singer Micheal Bolton... eek! :(
Undoubtedly trying to follow in the footsteps of Kylie and Delta and failing miserably.. Take your own advice dont make another mistake again!!!
A talentless Kelly clarkson wannabe

24Nelly Furtado

25Pete Murray
Sounds like someones got hold of his nuts and hes scared to sing any louder in case they squeeze...

What the heck is Metallica doing here?!? They are one of the best bands I've ever heard!
WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE THEY DOING HERE?!?! Metallica is the best metal band ever. They are legendary. They are what got me into heavy metal music. And this is coming from a girly, 12 year old girl. Get some sense knocked into you, people. Metallica is the best.
Just go away, same crap, same sound.

27The Beatles
All those who say the beatles are bad do not know good music at all. The beatles are the best of the best and no one can change that, so all you idiots who think there are better bands, think again with your small brains.
There is just no way the beatles even touch this list they are just a ICONIC BAND most people who don't like them are simply jealous of thier sucsess or because they have no life
THE BEATLES ARE LEGENDARY! WHY ARE THEY ON THIS LIST?!?! Saying the Beatles are terrible is about as bad as saying Justin Bieber has talent.

All of them pretend to have talent, but they really don't at all. Absolutely no wonder that they are well-known, when they have no such talent.

30My Chemical Romance
One of the most overrated bands that I can think of.
How did they get below A7X?


31Chris Brown
He should be at the top of the list because he is annoying and talentless
He is such a bully and is very ugly

Noboby is voting for the band from the 80's it, s the 70's group with Fisher, Leese, Deroiser and Fossen that gets the voting. Barracuda, Crazy on You, Love Alive, Mistral Wind, Kick it Out, Heartless, Magic Man, Little Queen, Stright On, etc, etc, etc. That's what people are voting for, not "These Dreams".
I agree they sold out in the 80's with god awful songs like Never, These Dreams, All I Want Do Is Make Love To You, Alone, etc.
They sold out in the 80's

Coldplay rocks! They're better than any artist because none of their songs are about love. How the heck iscoldplay here but not lady gaga Katy Perry or Carlie ray jepson here! Stupid pop loving generation of Americans. :b


36Soulja Boy
by far the worst rapper of all time. With rappers like Nas, AZ, Eminem, Ice Cube, GZA, common, Rakim, Ghostface, and royce the 5'9 out there its a mystery to me that anyone in the world could possibly listen to this losers crappy music. Just simpley terrible


worst rapper of all time and i think his music is lame and crap.


He just dances around and repeats himself and whines that because of this he has "haters" he has haters cause he makes yung joc look like nas! I can't stand him

Wayne doesn't spell correctly, and it sounds like he comes up with random, pointless lyrics

48Black Sabbath
Kill yourselves if you thing Metallica and sabbath are annoying
What! Heavy Metal all the way


50Blink 182
Dear Ronluna, They are a good band, not best singers are musicians but they have fun, and everyone has fun at their concerts, it's called stage presence, and you'll never be a good "artist" without stage presence. Blink Me
don't just go to stage with just clothes at your home and make fun of other artists.


51Asian Kung-fu Generation

52Fall Out Boy
They are like children performing in an adult crowd


53Axl Rose

How can Axl Rose be your favorite singer yet you think he's annoying?
I don't get it. AND HE IS NOT annoying. Maybe you R.I don't know. He's awesome. This is why I love Guns N' Roses so much! AXL!

he's my favorite singer but he is annoying


I hate this band. the voice and music is very annoying


most overrated american idol contestant ever and I would not spend 5 cents on this band ever!


Why is gackt everywhere in this website even if its unapplicable? He is good but he is overrated.


*screams and beats fists on floor* GET LOST GACKT!


People think that x-japan is the only band who created visual kei


Thre is x japan everywhere in the music list and also gackt


The band is good but the voice of TOSHI annoys me


57System of a Down

58Charice Pempengco

59Linkin Park


Uggghhh..The true definition of being overrated.

Talentless floozie and a bit outta date

61Maroon 5
Adam Levine's voice has the most irritating voice in pop music today, PERIOD!
Extremely bad vocal. Sounds like a chicken. The recent "Makes me wonder" should be in the top 10 of "Most annoying songs"

62Courtney Love

63Jenna Rose
Can't stand her "music"

Were pretty good in their day, but Bono is more concerned about shoving his face in front of the camera, oops, I mean saving Africa, than writing decent songs.


66Gwen Stefani
UGH! I don't like anything at all from her. I hate that nasal-whining-quivering she does with her voice, the way she says her words, the facial expressions she makes while singing. I guess she thinks she's cute, if it makes her sound like a little girl, but it really irks me and she is the main reason that I will not listen to the radio. Highly annoying, beyond everything. I cannot for the life of me believe that people actually listen to and enjoy such crap.


EW! I will not spend a day listening to her piece of garbage and her nasty vocals. I really hope that radio stations quit playing songs of hers because it's all filthy.
There's no doubt about it Gwen Stefani is the most annoying singer of all time!

71Bring Me the Horizon
Bring me the haircuts! Crap music, no variation, can't sing so screams, disgusting horrible sound, this isn't music, this is a bunch of scene kids acting "cool"

72Angels & Airwaves

First the guy decides the rest of blink 182 aren't good enough for him, THEN he decides to make an even worse band! I mean c'mon! And his voice UGH!

73Insane Clown Posse
Really lame there jealous of eminems talent and success and will never be as good as esham or gravediggaz. Horrorcore (esham, gravediggaz, etc)was a really promising sub-genre of hip-hop until icp became the face of the genre and now its universally despised


They dissed eminem with his own song... But they put farting noises in it... WOW real original what are you 5? Get a life.
Just pure garbage and anyone can do what they do I'm serious just listen to shaggys voice mimick it and say weird stuff and you will be just as awful as they are it isn't hard.

74Good Charlotte
Get this off the list! Good Charlotte is epic. Even though it is at only 65, that's enough. I escpecially like their underrated songs (I'm looking at Movin' On and Broken Hearts Parade right now). Anyway... Why would people hate them? Well, if they don't like the punk genre, I can understand.
Punk rockers who only got famous from the bunch of little "hip" kids who watch MTV all day

75Rascal Flatts

Gary LeVox, the lead singer of this group CANNOT SING AT ALL. Gary LeVox sounds like a cat being tortured in a blender. Whenever I hear his voice, I want to punch him in the face for singing so bad.

76Bernard Fanning

He woulda done well about 50 years ago but now hes just sad

77Missy Higgins


79Clay Aiken

80Marilyn Manson
Manson scares me. If I saw him walking down the street I would turn around start crying and run away as fast as I could.


81Craig David

music is not only r&b, theres pop, rock, metal and many more. an artist should be flexible to be a great musician.


82Rob Stewart

Anyone hear his American Song book. Stop the madness. You should be call Sell Out Stewart.

83Michael Bolton

I can't stand listening to his ragged screaming

84Justin Timberlake
Why is JT on this list? He can actually sing really well live and doesn't have an annoying attitude, don't get how he can annoy some people
What a piece of crap, say no more, say nor more... silly voice!


86Limp Bizkit
Fred Durst is the biggest douchebag in music history. -_-

87Ann Wilson
