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


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.

Metallica shouldn't be hated at all, but everybody should hate kanye

2Limp Bizkit

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


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

3Marylin 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

People hate him to look “cool”. Same reason why they hate Slipknot.

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

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.

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.

People who make these stupid, pathetic generalizations grind my gears. Everyone, they are just hipsters. They can't fit in anywhere else so they pick this to hate on. And it really irritates me. Chad Kroeger is a very good singer and a very good song writer.

I recon nickleback is an amazing band I don't understand why its so hated!

5Avenged Sevenfold

Avenged Sevenfold IS AMAZING


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.

This band is stupid, horrible than Limp Bizkit.

Anyone who hates Beatles must be in insane asylum.

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.


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!

Who started the let's blame nirvana for Creed and Candlebox trend? Because someone should take a baseball bat to their car. Nirvana has some of the best song writing and emmotion of any band. Period. RIP Kurt you did one hell of a job.

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

11Linkin Park

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.

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 is awesome

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?

13Bob Marley and The Wailers

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.


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

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

16The Monkees

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


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


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.

20Green Day

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.
