Top Ten Once Good Artists That Should Stop Making MusicBboymakinwitthefrekfreak
The Top Ten
I guarantee you would not be saying that if you had been to one of McCartney's concerts. He may not be the singer he once was, but the man's still got it.
Taking it a step further, why should any musician stop producing new material? Granted, New isn't be on the same level as Revolver. (What really is? We hold Paul to ridiculously high standards.) But as an artist, you need to produce art for yourself first and the rest of the world second. What's wrong with that? I'd like to know. - PetSounds
Thank you for putting him first on this list. I get slated for saying he's lost his mojo. Clearly I'm not the only one who thinks so. He's had his day. - Britgirl
Paul McCartney in the Beatles - OH MY GOD YES!
Paul McCartney in the Wings - Wow! This is pretty good, but it's no "Sgt. Pepper's"...
Paul McCartney in the Wings years later - Hmm... this is decent, but it's no "Band On the Run"...
Paul McCartney solo - Hm. I guess I'll buy this record. I mean-he WAS in the Beatles...
Paul McCartney solo today - Wait- why do I keep buying his albums?
Silly Paul, solo albums are for John!
and that applies to Ringo too... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
I actually thought New was a solid album, "Save Us" and "Early Days" being the standout tracks. - PetSoundsV 3 Comments
What?! Why is Green Day on here? Because their newest stuff isn't punk...? The reason for that is because they are EXPERIMENTAL and aren't willing to stick with just one genre of music and be snobs about it like other artists. Maybe it's not your thing, but it's not bad.
No, Green Day is on here because Uno Dos Tre is trash. Why else would they? Did you even read the list title? - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
They should have quit after Warning. But then they would be an overrated "what could've been" band like Nirvana. So maybe if they release American Idiot and show that Green Day could suck then that would have been a good album to quit after.
I like revolution radio. It's actually really good and still has a trace of their once punk/political songs - AnonymousChick
Other than the Who and 21st century Alice in Chains, I can't think of another band that has sold out. But the difference is that "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here" was actually good. "Uno Dos Tres" however, is barely decent. You know it's bad when the front man of the band admits that their band isn't the genre they say they are.
3 ways to fix Green Day
1. Steal Doc Brown's time machine.
2. Go to 2010
3. Put Billie's wife in Tre Cool's bed, take pictures, hand that shiz into TMZ so they can stop making music. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
They're just boring man, I don't know what to say. They were original and cool in the early 2000's but turned into an alternative boy-band. I really can't say I'm still a fan, I deleted all my Coldplay songs around 2014 so I wouldn't get beat up. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
They used to be quite good alt rock/indie rock, now they turned EDM. The worst thing is, people still like them. - CabadePartyhunter
They're just another pop act nowadays - RalphSaad
Coldplay sucks!V 1 Comment
Look, look, Rivers man, this thing is getting old. Your first 2 albums- awesome man, really great, but uh, here's the thing... When you think you're still 19 making silly rock songs while playing electric guitar at the Playboy mansion. You have kids man! Your over 40 years old!
You get a little sad for the guy when you look at the album covers, from Blue, to Green, to red albums... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Their doing much better now then they were in the 00s. The White album, EWBAITE and Hurley are great. - Cyrobian
Weezer from 2004-2010 should have been on this list but not anymore. Because they have redeemed themselves with EWBAITE and The White Album. There were some good tracks from Hurley but they clearly don't come close to Blue& Pinkerton.
I would put Dr. Dre on this list if he didn't still make decent music, however Jay-Z is on it because he's basically the bad music making version of Dre... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
When Fall Out Boy went on hiatus in 2009, they should have never came back together as a band. "Under the Cork Tree" was enjoyable, there were some ok songs in that album, so why continue as a band when you've got a popular album that fans and critics love, and especially when the emo scene was losing momentum? Well, to sell out, make even worse pop songs, and lose all respect people once had for them. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Heck why are they on here there good - TopTenListmaker
No, in fact they shouldn't be on here because they were never good. - Brobusky
They should stop making music and slit their wrists already jc - BboymakinwitthefrekfreakV 1 Comment
It's pretty sad actually, that these guys think they're still relevant. They had a couple albums in the 80's, and that's where they should have stopped. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
Nooo...I love this band! Actually hated them about 10 years ago but they've grown on me and have become one of my favourite rock bands along with Bon Jovi and Nickleback. - BritgirlV 1 Comment
Songs of innocence was an amazing album and I was so happy they were appreciate enough to their fans to make it free. I love them so much and hope they continue making music for years to come - YOUnique253
"Songs of Innocence" was released free because no one would pay or appreciate it if it costed 10 bucks... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
U2's next album better be worth my time
What happened to her after Ray of Light? Rebel Heart was only very mediocre, and the hits from it basically scream retirement. - Swellow
Sus used to be good, now she's desperatelly trying to be "hip" and "cool" just to stay on the charts. - Martinglez
I loved Doggystyle, it was pure real hip hop. Then I started listening to Bush and after the second song I realized the whole album will be as horrible as the first 2 songs.
At this point, Snoop is basically just the go-to rapper for any terrible artist to get a mediocre guest verse. When you're featured on Corey Feldman's "Angelic 2 The Core" album, that's your signal to retire. - Zach808V 2 Comments
He shouldn't be on this list because he wasn't good in the first place.
He sucks and is a bad song artist and needs to go away because he is offending my religion of the one eye baby that likes spaghetti cuts he is cool and stuff and now the baby sun face from the tellitubies will kill you all and burn you ok it's cool when it happens because it gives you cancer and cancer is cool but not cool because it kills people but in this case it is because if Justin Bieber because he sucks and I like video games ok my favorite is Minecraft story mode because it has a good story line and stuff because it is cool
He was bad, now slightly below average - ProPandaV 2 Comments
While never a master of his craft, West at least in the noughties and early 2010's had some talent and produced some really good songs and albums along the way. However, over the past few years, he seems to be more concerned with the celebrity aspect of his career, and is perfectly content with letting his music go to the wayside. As such, his music has dropped in quality dramatically over the last few years, as he is now more concerned with egotistical vanity projects (especially his recent Rihanna and Paul McCartney collaboration) in order to prove that he's a true auteur than he is making any more good music. Please stop Kanye, and if not just please get your act together instead. - Mrveteran
Kanye's lost it. Seriously, he makes himself look like a complete moron on Twitter, his lyrics have become cringeworthy as hell, and even his production has suffered. For the last couple albums, he's been throwing whatever half-baked ideas he can find in there, and they just don't stick. Either he needs to pull his head out of his ass, or quit. - Zach808
Grumble grumble grumble mumble mumble mumble, is the chorus of one of his songs. Need I say more?
He's still good he just runs his mouth and says regrettable things
She sold out and does crap hipster trend music now instead of the beautiful music that made her famous to begin with. She was actually really good before the fame went to her head, but now I can't stomach her dime-a-dozen songs. I miss the days of Fearless and Speak Now...now we're stuck with Red and 1989 and God knows what else there is to come...ugh.
She was never good to begin with.
I'm pretty sure they've stopped making music, but maybe they'll make a stupid tribute album like they did with Michael Jackson. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak
No, they are good nowadays. Disagree? Listen to the Hunting Party. - RorywilbrenV 1 Comment
These guys were really good, but their newest album was horrible - kempokid
Their 80s and 90s albums are thrash metal classics. After Youthanasia, though, they just haven't been able to keep up the momentum. Just as they seemed to be recovering in 2009, they hit us with Th1rteen, Super Collider, and Dystopia, three of the most underwhelming albums I've heard from a band I used to like. On top of that, Dave Mustaine has gone full-on Infowars conspiracy-theory nutjob in terms of lyrics. Please, Megadeth, just stop. - Zach808
