They are bad but they are NOT a rock band

Their first two albums suck, "midnight memories" was ok and "four" was definitely the best one so far. They're not a rock band though & I still don't really like their music lol (although I honestly tried to give them a chance)

They are not a rock band and honestly, they have always been terrible

They were never good.

43MegadethMegadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. The group was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine's dismissal from Metallica.

First 4-6 albums were excellent, but with Risk they dug themselves into a ditch it took about ten years to fully recover from, and they came back in a ditch with Super Collider.

What do you expect without Brian Wilson? - PetSounds

They started to get better then they got worse.

Surf's Up was their last great album.

Pet sounds was revolutionary. But other than that... No - KidA

52WeezerWeezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.

I loved the first two albums but things started going downhill after that

A lot of their music sounds the same to me, but I definitely don't hate it.

Weezer started getting worse with Red and then Ratitude and Hurley but with the release of Everything Will Be Alright In The End, things are looking up - Drum_Solo

I only like the blue album

53Arctic MonkeysThe Arctic Monkeys, otherwise known as the Death Ramps, are a British indie rock band formed in 2002 in Sheffield, England. The band consists of Alex Turner (lead vocalist, songwriter, electric and rhythm guitarist), Jamie Cook (electric and rhythm guitarist, songwriter), Matt Helders (percussionist, ...read more.

The Arctic Monkeys truly made art with their first 2 albums. A certain Romance, Brianstorm, Flourecent Adolescence, and Riot Van are some of my personal favorites. Starting on their third effort, however, they lost much of their individuality and starting pumping out all kinds of heartless garbage. They did come out with some ok songs like R you Mine, but even these high points paled in comparison to their hard hitting first works. It really is sad what Alex Turner has done to my favorite band.

Sure Am lost their spark a bit with AM but I think all the other albums were great! suck it and see was fantastic, humbug has bad rep but you can't deny the brilliance of crying lightning and cornerstone, favourite worst nightmare was brilliant but of course the best from them, and my favourite album of all time must be whatever people say I am, that's what I'm not

Since Alex Turner became the cocky airhead that he's today they started going downhill, they were a great band in their early years though.

In my opinion they got better. - KidA

Their newest album isn't that bad but a lot of it sounds similar. But I love their older albums.

From kinda dodgy deathcore to some super awesome albums to this. Count your blessings had a few w awesome songs on it. Suicide season and there's a hell were just epic from start to finish. Sempiternal was different but still awesome. Then that's the spirit. Its some cheap attempt at alternative rock and everyone acts as though they love them
They're just boring now

They made a deep dive down the drain.

Guys we can't say they got worse. Mitch died and we can't change that. They tried their hardest to come out of a difficult situation.

Regional at best was the best alt hip hop album I've heard and Vessel was great but blurry face is an abomination and a worthless piece that made the band what they criticized a meaningless pop band with little to no artistic value and once I heard heathens(*barfs*) we all know it'll go downhill

58Cage the Elephant

Their first album was great. Their second album was just okay. Their third album wasn't very good. I don't understand why melophobia gets so much praise, it's not really that great and I think it was their worst album. - Imreallyboredrightnow

I love all of Cage The Elephants albums, and at fist wasn't a big fan of Melephobia, but now I realize what a masterpiece it is.

The first 2 albums were good and then the third album they turned into disco wannabees.
