Top Ten Music Artists People Hate Because They Think It's Cool to Do So

Finch
Remember when you were listening to the radio and that song came on you hadn't heard before and you thought to yourself, "This song is pretty catchy. I think I like it... I wonder who it is." Only to find out it was Miley Cyrus, or Justin Bieber? Of course you can't like them or their music, what would your friends say?

This list isn't saying these artists are good or bad, but it IS saying that people are often told what their opinions will be before they actually make them up for themselves. Whether people are swayed by peer pressure or just jumping on the bandwagon, if they are making value statements about a music artist without giving them (and their music) a fair chance, based solely on the opinions of others, then those statements need to be taken with a grain of salt.

It's time to make up your own minds. You may decide the artist truly IS crap, or you might decide to stand up for your opinion even if it's unpopular. One thing is for sure though: nobody thinks a person who can't make up their own mind is cool.

The Top TenXW

1Justin BieberJustin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claimed that he was Part-Indian) and he's Christian. He's the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. ...read more.

Can we just agree once and for all that we all hate him for the same reason, so we don't need to go and convince everyone that he's terrible anymore? - Songsta41

I'm not sure where you think the "convincing" is happening as the point of this list is to point out to people that they often hate things without taking the due time to form the basis of their own opinions. Loving or hating him is up to you; as long as it's a decision you made based on your own experience and not because it's the cultural norm. - Finch

At least his latest album is better...

No, the hate is justified on TheTopTens.

It's obvious this would be number 1. - Martinglez

2NickelbackNickelback 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 gave them a listen because I heard they were awful. I was surprised they were not that awful and I actually liked several songs, especially Burn It To The Ground - a pretty good hard rock song. It didn't make me a fan of theirs though. - Metal_Treasure

I hate them because, as a Canadian, I'm forced to put up with hearing their music on the radio in every shop and restaurant. - PetSounds

I can't understand why they get so much hatred anyway, honestly I don't! I really really like them. - Britgirl

Why are they so hated? - RalphBob

6Rae SremmurdRae Sremmurd is an American hip hop duo, composed of two brothers, Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown (born June 7, 1995) and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown (born December 29, 1993). They are best known for their platinum singles "No Flex Zone" and "No Type". They are signed to Mike WiLL Made-It's label, "EarDrummer ...read more.

Actually, Rae Sremmurd are terrible singers who are hated for their fart-like beats and stereotypical "brag about the luxury you've got" lyrics, but the worst thing is their voices, where they sound like middle school teenagers who slur out some of the worst lyrics I've actually heard. They aren't even relevant, but at that, they are horrible singers that are hopefully going to be forgotten in the next two years. - Swellow

Actually no. I don't hate Rae Sremmurd for the sake of it: I genuinely believe that they are talentless hacks with nothing to offer except a generalization of mainstream rap. - WonkeyDude98

7One DirectionOne Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015 . The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

I don't really like 1D but I do like Drag Me Down and I don't deny it. - jerk4life

8Iggy AzaleaAmethyst Amelia Kelly, known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, songwriter, and model.

If she is a aussie why rap like an american? - leafstar

The Contenders

11Simple PlanSimple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

They might be a bit cheesy but they aren't that bad as people say in my opinion. Their not like the Creed version of Green Day. Simple Plan in a nutshell only gets hated because some of their songs are cheesy. This band has a few songs I like: Welcome to My Life, Your Love is a Lie, When I'm Gone, Perfect, Save You, Astronaut, Singing in the Rain, Opinion Overload and Grow Up. Still though I think their seriously overhated. - BoredJeff02

12Jacob SartoriusJacob Sartorius is a singer known for his top 90 hit Sweatshirt, which amassed over a million YouTube dislikes in less than a year, and other singles ABC remix and musical .ly clips. Jacob Sarorius has a YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and other Social Media .
13Rick RossWilliam Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.
14Taylor SwiftTaylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing about her personal life and not using AUTO-TUNE in her music . She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after ...read more.

She has lipstick on her teeth. A fashion faux pas. - Britgirl

15Lil WayneDwayne Michael Carter, Jr., also known professionally as Lil Wayne, is an American rapper. He was signed to Cash Money Records by Birdman at a young age . He has been critically acclaimed and even more panned throughout his career . He's often criticized for constantly talking about money, girls, and ...read more.

He used to be decent in the 90s, and Let It Rock wasn't terrible, but when he started getting onto stuff like Love Me and Karate Chop... he went awful. - Swellow

It�'s funny that people actually hate Wayne, because he�'s the stereotype of a modern rapper. He actually started in the 90�'s and the Carter 3 is on the Rolling Stone top 500 albums of all time. He might have had a bad album (Rebirth), but having classics like the Carter 1 and 2, I believe he is underrated

16Young ThugJeffrey Lamar Williams, better known by his stage name Young Thug, is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia. He became known for his commercial debut single "Stoner." Notable Albums/Mixtapes: Barter 6, Slime Season, Slime Season 2, I'm Up, Slime Season 3

He deserves to be hated. He thinks that not helping your community is good.

17Clique Girlz

19Everlife
20ParamoreParamore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams and guitarist Taylor York.

Their older stuff is pretty good their newer stuff though not as good... - BoredJeff02

Paramore doesn't deserve to be hated, and they aren't cool to hate. Why are they on this list?

Used to hate them, then EvilNuggetCookie smacked some sense into me. - WonkeyDude98
