Top 10 Most Stupidly Hated Bands

Some people hate bands who are actually good because it's the cool thing to do. These are the bands who have been subjected to that and shouldn't have been.

The Top TenXW

1Metallica Metallica is an American Heavy Metal band formed in 1981. The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist) Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar) Lars Ulrich (Drums) Ron McGovney (Bassist) The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". ...read more.

I see too many people saying "Metallica is garbage" or similar nonsense. While I personally don't like their most recent albums (except Death Magnetic, that one is pretty good, ) their first four albums were excellent. I figure most people who dislike Metallica probably haven't spent much time listening to their older music.

Hi guys, I'm glad too see you all hear stand at Metallica side! They just did not deserved to be so hated, they have few bad albums but hey guys remember good old albums they are working hard to do what the do today to be one of the greatest Metal bands, I meet some people how said thinks like Metallica is not true trash. I think Metallica is true Trash metal band so this is all of me, have a nice days and stay rock.

I do believe Metallica can be really overrated in some circumstances (IE Master of Puppets being voted best on almost every top ten to many top tens, people tlking about Enter Sandman like it's better than anything, people claiming Fade to Black is the most emotional song ever written. ) But at the same time that doesn't make the band bad. And albums such Load and Lulu aren't really signs of weakness in my opinion but rather the band falling into genres people don't like. And at least Metallica shows true expression and emotion in there music unlike some bands.

It's so gross and awkward and so boring.

2Limp BizkitLimp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

I'm sorry but the lets rag on Fred Durst because he's white and accidentally started a riot bandwagon is one ridden by people who've never even heard a limp bizkit song. Limp Bizkit has that juvenile delinquent vibe and heavy rifts that makes me go insane every time I hear them. Limp Bizkit might not be as good as Led Zeppelin but they're pretty awesome.
Best song: BREAK STUFF

Thank you. Limp bizkit might not have the talent of bands like led zeppelin. But they tap into my adolecence angst better than any other band period

Except for fred durst, this band is very awesome.

Fred Durst is the reason I don't like them.

3NickelbackNickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

People just hate to be cool and fit in with the crowd. They act like Nickelback is the musical anti-christ. Nickelback is an awesome band with great songs. Chad knows how to write great hit songs that people remember. People also say that all their songs sound the same. Untrue! Compare Burn It To The Ground to Lullaby. Different tempo. Different song structure. Different instrumentation. Different lyrical topic, obviously. IT IS CLEARLY A DIFFERENT SONG! You must be deaf or just plain stupid to think all their songs sound the same.

I personally don't hate Nickelback, and I definitely don't hate on them to be cool. They just don't appeal to me, and that's the main reason why it has been heavily hated on. I don't see it as a trend to be cool to despise them. They just don't appeal to the majority. I will say that I can see why they're easy to dislike. I personally think that Chad's vocals are a bit rough and sharp that it makes most of their work unbearable to listen to. His singing could work for some people, but it doesn't work for the rest of us. I will say they do deserve to be here because of how much they are hated, but I won't say they are the worst band ever.

People regularly hate Nickelback for their chart songs. However, most people don't even know the band's other, hard rock side. I admit, there are some Nickelback songs out there - like Lullaby for example - I don't really enjoy. Nonetheless, most of Nickelback's songs are hard rock/post-grunge, whatever. That's what I like 'em for.

Overrated corporate pop rock

4Marylin Manson

Most stupid white middle class teenagers are scared of Marylin Manson. That's why they gang up on him. But Manson doesn't care and neither does his fans. He has amazing guitar rifts and if you don't get it you never will.
Best song: THE DOPE SHOW

I don't see why they are hated so much. They actually make decent music.

I know a lot of people hate Marilyn Manson. But I think he's pretty talented.

5Avenged SevenfoldAvenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal/alternative metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. The group is set together out of M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Guitar) and throughout their career multiple bassists and drummers. Most notably Jimmy "The Rev" Sullivan (Drums), who passed ...read more.

They have been blindly hated but those haters don't see talent and skill in those people, hated for their looks before so what does have to do with music exactly or they have been hated for using country influences and not being heavy just shut up its music which you are not bothered to realise

People that have this band are the biggest dopes I have ever seen. They always say like "They a Pop Emo garbage", This statement alone tells you how stupid they are, A7X isn't Emo, they did have a makeup stage during the City of Evil album (Which was 11 years ago), but they aren't Emo. When they say "Pop" they meant A7X's softer songs like "So Far Away", yet they say similar songs to it aren't pop. All in all, it's not like you are required to like this band, it's your choice, but if you hate them for stupid reasons, you are dumber than a doorknob.

No way, A7X is amazing. Their band has a great friendship and better than Gun N Roses who always fighting each other. ( FAN OF GUN N ROSES ) :P

7SlipknotSlipknot is a Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". ...read more.

People hate slipknot because of their imagery. Trust me if they dressed like limp bizkit and sung about the stupid ignorant crap that limp biskit does they would be just as popular

Chad aplin from Iowa is the backbone of this band best singer he took cory to school and showed him how to sing. Every slip fan should thank Chad. Chad aplin rules

I hate them just because of their creepy looks and thugs like activity on live but their lyrics are and music are real metal.

Again you just don't see talent in them what a shame

Who in the world can hate The Beatles only low life people like kids these days saying oh 1D is better than The Beatles and all that other crap like that. - austin.rose.733076

I don't hate the Beatles, I just really don't care for their music.

Anyone who hates Beatles must be in insane asylum.

9DisturbedDisturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois. The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren.

So what if David is a dick, he's one hell of a singer. That's for sure

He's actually a really nice dude. Met him at an In Flames show once. He tolerated my drunk ass for a few minutes.

Too soft and weak emotions lol! ! Grow some balls

10KornKorn is an American nu metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David ...read more.

They probably hate them because they think they're "satanic" which is a really stupid idea to hate popular rock/metal bands.

I swear this whole rumor of rock and metal needs to die. How would you people like it if I went around saying that country and rap are satanic? Would you fans of those genres appreciate that?

I'm no fan of Korn, but they don't have any reasons to be hated. They know how to play their instruments pretty good.

11Bob Marley and The Wailers Bob Marley and the Wailers were a Jamaican reggae band and, earlier, a ska vocalist group created by Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer.

People think Mr. Marley only made music for stonners. As always those people are just biggots who haven't listened to the soul and lyrics of a Bob Marley song.
Best song: THREE LIL BIRDS

12Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (vocals , pianist [rapper]), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture ...read more.

Linkin Park haters should hate all music because Linkin Park has mixed rap, rock, metal, alternative, and punk into one thing. With so much for so many different types of people to love why do people hate them so much? Oh yeah! They're stupid.
Best song: ONE STEP CLOSER

You are right who made this list is of course mad stupid... Linkin Park always gives hit songs whenever they release their album

This and limp bizkit, limp biskit isn't good but not one of the worst of all time, lp are amazing and give 100% energy every live performance.

Linkin Park sucks

13Nirvana Nirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. ...read more.

Nirvana is underrated as well as overrated. After Kurt's death the isle split even farther, but I am on the side that appreciates the passion in their music as well as what they did for a generation!

What the hell does Creed or Candlebox have to do with Nirvana? They are crap, Nirvana isn't

No one is cooler than Kurt cobain

14DeathDeath was an American Death Metal band formed in 1983 by Chuck Schuldiner. Death is considered to be one of the most influential bands in heavy metal and a pioneering force in death metal. its debut album, Scream Bloody Gore, has been widely regarded as the first death metal record, while the band's ...read more.

Chuck is a genius and he clearly set out to make real music rather than follow a trend. Like death doesn't sing about satanism or killing people because they don't believe in that. They actually try to spread positive message about philosophy and politics but are still brutal and heavy death metal.

No one really knows death outside of the death metal scene so saying that they're hated is a little rediculouse. But chuck is amazing

15Insane Clown Posse

ICP is my favorite band. I get that people are allowed to like and not like things. But what bothers me is when some people go out of their way to say they hate them simply to try to make the people who do feel bad. And it's always for absolutely stupid reasons like "They dress like clowns! Therefore it's stupid! " "They curse too much! " "They caused Juggalos to exist! ". And usually those same people only listened to like one or two ICP songs.

I have some things to say.

I am a Juggalette who likes ICP, but from being one I know you don't have to like them to be a Juggalo. It's a subculture, a lifestyle, a way of thinking, a family. Juggalos can listen to what ever they want. And we're actually mostly decent people, we're just weird and misunderstood.

Also, don't bring even up the "Juggalos are a gang" or "People who listen to ICP are part of gang activity" lies. We aren't a gang. The authorities are realizing ...more

Why people hate ICP? I'm a Juggalette, and people are saying: "They just suck. Period. Grown men should not be running around wearing face paint and rap about killing people and doing drugs. Grow up."
That's simply stereotyping. You're the one who needs to grow up and stop judging people by their music taste. It's your life? No. Have I ever done something bad to you? No. Then why do you hate me? Mmfwcl

I love them. They are original and you don't get that often. They are nice and funny guys. They shouldn't get the hate they do. If you dis them you might as well dis all of rap/hip hop.

The best band of all time

16ColdplayColdplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist). Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed ...read more.

Their music is so soulful. It bugs me when people say "Chris Martin sings falsetto all the time and it's so annoying" because in almost all of Queen's songs, Freddie Mercury sings falsetto. And if you don't like Chris Martin as a person, that doesn't mean you can't like Coldplay as a band.

Coldplay is an alright band that people appear to hate for no real reason. Songs like 'clocks' are brilliant, although there' later stuff is not as good. What I do hate about them is that people incorrectly label them as 'the most depressing band in existence. Coldplay are in no way at all depressing. Anyone who claims they are does obviously not know the meaning of depressing.

They make some of the most amazing music ever. People who hate their music have no taste whatsoever.

A pretty decent rock band once you look through there back cataloge

18PanteraPantera was a Heavy Metal band formed in 1981 by guitarist Dimebag Darrell and drummer Vinnie Paul. The group got into mainstream after changing from Glam Metal to Groove Metal. Their most succesful album is the title "Vulgar Display of Power" ...read more.

Great metal band that are often hated in the metal community as they are seen as the fore-fathers of modern (insert metal genre)-core / nu metal, most of which is rubbish. Pantera themselves however are superb

19SlayerSlayer is an American thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California, formed in 1981 by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King.

Slayer is one of the best metal bands ever! who could possibly hate them?!?!?!

They have a good tone and speed
but suffer from "Every sounds the same" Syndrome. The leads are kinda thrown together and the songs barely last more than 3 minutes. The drums are alright but really get boring quickly, and the bass drums sound like hell. Tom Arya's vocals we're very good now but they were alright then, Hanniman had good rhythm parts but his and King's leads absolutely are terrible. I like the rest of the Big 4, but Slayer's only being good at being heavy

20Green DayGreen Day are an American punk rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals, guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar). Green Day are associated with punk rock and alternative rock. Some of their influences include The ...read more.

They are a great band and hated for selling out... Lets be honest they changed there style over time, Green Day never sold out they have always had catchy songs with repetitive verses, even in their early days. They are one of a kind, punk or not, and are keeping rock alive!

They are hated for "selling out" and going mainstream... We saw this with many great bands, and unlike a lot Green Day has really been driven by passion and not money!

They're okay, my two friends love them, though.
