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

1Limp 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.

Linkin park I love but limp bizkit I hate - Th3Zm0nst3r

2Metallica Metallica is an American Thrash 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.

Defiantly overhated for no good reason. Their one of the most influential thrash metal bands of all time.

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.

I'm in the minority that hate Justin bieber, I testify against psy, and I hate most of the female artist of today, but why is this one of the bands that people hate the most? First of all it's not fair, there just a band that love to play and that's what musics all about, second everybody says they suck, to the point were we say all right already take your opinions somewhere else. Third they at least try harder compared to the other so called hit musicians, and they least have some great songs including rockstar, and burn it to the ground. And worst they don't just attack the band, but also anyone who gives them a fair chance that is inexcusable. In short nickel back is a good band that need more appreciation. If I were to compare them to an animated film it will be cars 2, because people put themselves on there high horse and don't give them a fair chance. So. End by saying give nickelback a chance

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.

They're not the best band I've heard, but I don't get why everyone hates them so much.

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/metalcore (early) band, that was formed 1999 in California . Their longest lineup of members was M . Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums) . ...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

6AC/DCAC/DC are a Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm's illness and departure in 2014. They were fronted by Bon Scott until his untimely death due to alcohol poisoning in 1980, after which they hired Brian Johnson to ...read more.

I would understand why people would hate them because of the vocals of Brian Johnson, there music sounds the same and overrated - Th3Zm0nst3r

I hate ac dc so much I listen to two of the most popular bands the Beatles and the beach boys.

Anybody who hates AC/DC should be drug out to the street and shot

7SlipknotSlipknot is a Nu 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 that hate Slipknot have never actually listened to them or have but just don't like the genre. You shouldn't hate a band because you think you would without listening to them and I know this because I was a Slipknot hater until I actually listened to them. and lastly if you don't like a specific type of music just don't listen to it no one is holding your family hostage and will kill them if you don't to them.

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

The only good reason for people to dislike Slipknot is because they aren't that persons type of music. But that's sadly isn't the case one of the reasons why they are hated is because they wear masks

8KornKorn 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.

9Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.

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

Anyone who hates Beatles must be in insane asylum.

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

I'm allergic with the Beatles

10DisturbedDisturbed 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

Disturbed is one of the best bands of modern metal.There is no denying the fact that their latest album is of good quality.They rlly make fantastic songs

The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), 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

Linkin park is one of the best bands today. I think people don't know what NU metal is - Th3Zm0nst3r

Linkin Park sucks

12Bob 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.

Why are they in this list? The soul of everyone ask for songs of Bob Marley! People who say they hate Bob Marley, actual love them inside.

At this point I think people are just adding these bands to pissed us off

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

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

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.
Best song: SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT

No one is cooler than Kurt cobain

14Insane Clown PosseInsane Clown Posse is an American hip hop, horrorcore and rap rock duo consisting of rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, that was formed in 1989 in Detroit. Insane Clown Posse is known for their violent and outrageous lyrics that interpolate often horror elements and religious symbolism, all of this ...read more.

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

Their songs are misogynist, they rap about committing crimes and their lyrics are dreadfully disturbing. Their rapping is quite good, I admit (better than Eminem), but raps with misogynistic and disturbing lyrics is not something which I can appreciate. Sorry!

They sucks, enough said.

15DeathDeath 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

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.

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
