The Top Ten

1 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback 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.

Nickelback make good and fun rock music and are only hated in the US. The songs sound similar yet not the same, and to be honest: many critically acclaimed bands have songs that sound alike.
Nickelback are not the greatest band ever. But they are not bad. They play pretty good, Kroeger's voice is pleasantly raw, the songs are catchy. The lyrics are not terrible. They are simple, but they have nothing that is garbage. Personally, I think people hate them because they expect rock music to be something daring, and Nickelback aren't. They are there to please the ones that like the sound of rock, not necessarily its spirit. - Martin_Canine

@Martin_Canine - this is the most objective and correct description of Nickelback I've read on this site. I agree they are overhated, especially on the TopTens. - Metal_Treasure

Yes, "Baby" was terrible. Yes, both "My World" albums were terrible. Yes, this christmas album was terrible. And yes, he was overhyped. Thing is: no one would hate the stuff he does now if the songs he sang before puberty voice change were not widely released and got much airplay. If "Believe" or "Purpose" was released as his first major label album while "My World" and "My World 2.0" were YouTube-only releases, people would think that he does at least solid to very good catchy pop music. Some would dislike him, but certainly not hate him. - Martin_Canine

3 Rebecca Black Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is "well known" for her "hit" single, "Friday", which has the second most dislikes on YouTube .

We all agree "Friday" is a mess of a song. Stupidest lyrics, and terrible line delivery. But please: time passed. She was young when she recorded this and she did not write the lyrics. Do yourself a favor and search her official YouTube channel, listen to a few of her songs and covers, and I'm sure you will like her voice. Personally, I think she saw the offer to sing "Friday" as her big chance to make it big in the pop business. She was too young to realise the lyrics are bad. And propably she was told to sing like this because the producer wanted to create a viral hit. Anyways, Rebecca Black CAN sing, and she is pretty good. - Martin_Canine

And don't see her as a rapper, but as a pop artist. And as such, she is pretty fun. I like how she plays with her vocals, her use of different personas and her aggressive nature when it comes to competing with her male label mates. - Martin_Canine
