81Tokio HotelTokio Hotel are a pop rock band from Magdeburg, Germany, consisting of Bill Kaulitz (singer), Tom Kaulitz (guitar), Gustav Schäfer (drums) and Georg Listing (keyboards, bass). In 2005, they started off as a hugely successful and trendsetting teen pop band in their home country with their debut album ...read more.

They had a few excellent, very touching songs & they produced handmade German poprock at a very young age, now they're trying to be L.A. gangster-hipsters making awful "house music" (i'm scared of calling it house music, it's not house nor is it music lol) or something I can't quite put my finger on. I just know that their attitude & so-called-music is terrible

82Tokyo Police Club

I hate to put these guys on the list, because I absolutely love them. Their first EP plus two albums were amazing, but their new album, Forcefield, went from an indie-rock sound to almost electronic-y pop. Of course, bands change over time and it isn't fair to dislike them for that, but their change just didn't sound good.

83Five Finger Death PunchFive Finger Death Punch is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name is derived from a fictional martial arts maneuver in the 2003 film Kill Bill.

Ivan's voice from War Is The Answer to Wrong Side Of Heaven And Righteous Side Of Hell albums got annoying with the growl voice instead of a screaming one - spiderskull98

90They Might Be GiantsThey Might Be Giants is an American alternative rock band formed in 1982 by John Flansburgh and John Linnell.

I actually liked them until they started being pop on no fixed address listen to silver side up its amazing ( back off haters and don't judge me )

Curb and The State were pretty good. Once they got signed to a record label, they got worse. Much, much worse.

They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.

Alright geniuses, time for a history lesson. The Beatles have improved over time whether seeing the impact of their influence or over their short career. If we are going on the basis that they got worse over their career I'm sorry but please get your ears checked. While they weren't horrific, Please Please Me, A Hard Days Night, Beatles For Sale and Help! Simply don't measure up to the greatness of Rubber Soul, Revovler, Sgt. Peppers, The White Album and Abbey Road. Heck even the Red Album (their greatest hits from 1962-1966) doesn't measure up to the greatness of any of the albums stated above, These albums were ahead of the time and left a long lasting impact on music. The fact that you can even consider something like Love Me Do or Ticket To Ride better than I Am The Walrus or A Day In The Life is garbage.

The Beatles got better overtime. Not worse.

Shut up the Beatles were always good they didn't get worse

If anything, they got a lot better over time. Maybe even better after they broke up and after the deaths of John Lennon and George Harrison. RIP John Lennon and George Harrison - caseyk1218

The revs death clearly had an impact as hail to the king wasn't nearly as good as their other albums.

I think Avenged Sevenfold are still good but some bands don't always become bad over the years if they need different type of music they play it

Shouldn't be here hail to the king ruled
