Top Ten Music Artists Who Are Most Likely to Ruin the World's Music Industry

PositronWildhawk
What has music come to in recent times?!?! J***** B***** and O** D******** driving everyone up the wall! And people actually listen to it, and call it the best. It's clear that the music industry is in tatters, but who is most responsible for this?

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.

This is one of those lists where its tough to choose just one to vote for. Nicky Minajs voice just gets annoying. She is only popular because she can say words fast, she doesn't even sound good doing it. One Direction is everything Slipknot is against. They are only famous because of how they look. If they had to go on stage like Slipknot they would loose a lot of fans quickly. I voted for JB because he is an annoying little prick insulting good bands (Metallica and Megadeth) and calls himself the Kurt Cobain of his generation. Drop dead. - Danielsun182

HONESTLY he is seriously annoying. His music isn't even THAT good. I don't understand what people see in him. ;.

Justin Bieber got ran over by a monster truck! Then I pick him up and throw him into and active volcano! Then I blame the whole thing on Miley Cyrus! And she went into an empty jail cell! Honestly, I'd shave his hair, chainsaw his head off, throw his head into an active volcano, take off his clothes, put ten rapid badgers on him, and let a dog bite his nuts!

Can we have marilyn monroe from heaven and trade her for justin beiber

I hate them so much. What does everyone see in them?!?! I can't understand it. - PositronWildhawk

Some of my classmates LOVE One Direction. It's so embarrassing. So they see in them - EpicJake

ALL the girls at my church love them, plus, I look like Nile, or one of them, so I've now become the so-called "cutest boy in church", not that I have a problem, but it is annoying, sometimes. - moonwolf

Do you hear the auto tune? It represents how One Direction is fake. They aren't even cute, and half of them can't sing. - ethanmeinster

Their fans just embarrass themselves loving the most talentless band ever - gemcloben

3Nicki MinajNicki Minaj is an American rapper / pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe". Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

She's crap and supposedly she's all about female empowerment. I don't get how because the lyrics in her music saw otherwise. She's a terrible role model (not that she's even trying to be).

In all honesty, is this crap what music is becoming?! If so, I will bail out of everything new in the music industry.

Justin Bieber belongs in the trash, and Nicki Minaj belongs in the recycling!

No she's isn't a stupid ho she's the worlds greatest female/ first rapper of all time

6Olly Murs

The British JB who is so stupid that he has to go over himself in his songs. He didn't need a good short term memory to be famous, then, but you DO need a good short term memory to be a good musician, everything that Olly Murs isn't. - PositronWildhawk

His voice is just plain and boring and has nothing unique or special to it - gemcloben

7Jay-ZShawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name Jay Z, is an American rapper, entrepreneur and investor. He is best known for his album Reasonable Doubt.

Only raps about sex and drugs... Nonsense and people still like this

Id advise you too never listen to him, unless you want to torture yourself - gemcloben

8Rick RossWilliam Leonard Roberts II, better known by his stage name Rick Ross, is an American rapper and entrepreneur.

Should be put back into prison, before he releases any more terrible albums

Should go back to working in prisons.

He died down, but make sure he goes back into prison to prevent him from releasing more mainstream rap rubbish. - Swellow

May see his career stop its total free-fall when he joins the deadmau5 world tour as the opening act.

She is not ruining the music industry, more like making it better, she is the only reason I listen to today's pop music, without her, I wouldn't listen to modern pop music at all.

Get Ke$ha of the list! Please! :(

At least he's better than Lil' Wayne, at least Eminem doesn't rap about raping girls and sex nonstop, and he doesn't grunt like a drunk person who had crapped himself. - MeaganSaysHI

He's probably on here because he started rapping with horrible rappers like Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj.

I do hate rap, but this guy's got talent - gemcloben

How come she became so famous for one song that sounds so similar to loads of other terrible things like it?!?! There wasn't anything that made her stand out, so why is she getting such undeserved recognition for one of the worst and most uninspired songs in the world?!?! If this sort of thing keeps happening, music is seriously going downhill. - PositronWildhawk

You can't judge her until you've heard her newest album. "E.Mo.Tion" It is truly fantastic. - TheEvilNuggetCookie
