Worst Albums by Great Metal / Hard Rock BandsIn my opinion most bands have a fluke or have just lost their greatness from the past. These are my least favorite albums by great bands. They are all from subgenres of metal or rock.
The Top TenXW
This album is an unique album... Everyone please listen this album... In this album has everything...
Whoever put this album on the list needs to be shot! It has so many genius songs like so far away, buried alive, nightmare, fiction, save me.
Avenged Sevenfold is far from a great band
Personally hate this albumV4 Comments
Disagree completely. It's a very beautiful and artistic electronic album. The only reason it's on this list is because there are too many people who can't grow up and realize that Linkin Park don't need to constantly make Hybrid Theory part 2. - AngryByrd
This is the worst linkin park album, that being said, all linkin park albums are great! Therefor, this is still a good album and should not be on this list
Every Linkin Park album should be added to the list
It sounds cool thoughV3 Comments
Wow it feels like you're in a block of flats, you hear Lou Reed in the shower talking and singing while next door Metallica are playing next door. That's how bad it is. I don't see how God Hates us All is bad, Disciple is a rocking song. Maybe Diabolus in Musica.
This should be at number one it was awful who hell makes garbage like this I want too sue Lars for this album good Lou reed is dead so a sequel will never be made few I was in fear that that would happen good thing it never did
It sounds like Lou Reed and Metallica were high on crack when they made this. You hear Lou Reed's drunken voice with Metallica playing in the background. Did I forget to mention the lyrics. "I am the tablet"? Seriously!?
In my opinion, I don't find this album that bad. Sure lyrics make no sense but they don't have to. - Mumbizz01V12 Comments
Please... This album is amazing! Buy some decent system to play it on and play it loud, yes Axl is being a dick but most rock stars are, and this album does have a better guitarist (Buckethead, best guitarist of all time). It would be great if Slash was here too but he's not so get over it and enjoy the music. If this was released under a different band name headed by Axl Rose people would love it.
Some good songs on the record and I love Buckethead but Axl is killing Gun's N' Roses and their legacy.
This album had one catchy song on it to me - Sabbath
This was not the only bad album by Green Day. A lot of their albums sucked and some are overrated - Sabbath
Only bad Green Day album and it was not good. Few high points on the record.
Two things: 1st: I'm pretty sure Green Day isn't Metal nor Hard Rock, they are simply punk / pop rock. And second, this a fantiastic album. What the hell is this doing here?! - Jetticus12V2 Comments
Why is this here and not Van Halen III? - Nickelstickman
As much as people complain about this album, this album allowed Metallica to survive. I liked Frantic, St. Anger, Some Kind of Monster, The Unnamed Feeling, Sweet Amber and All Within My Hands.
What do guys thinking about? Lulu worsen than this, in St. Anger, they have Frantic and St. Anger that I think is really good. But Lulu? No one in that album is good or can I say all of their song is bad and worsen than St. Anger. St. Anger maybe at 2 or 3
Why critics why did you let this peace of junk whin Grammy really how could this peace have in to the world it will kill you metal
This is a Difficult Choice because Every Metallica album is Garbage. Posers.V2 Comments
RELOAD IS awesome UNFORGIVING 2 you kidding me you people don't know musicV2 Comments
I actually like this album. - Mumbizz01
What new sound Metallica tried to capture on the black album was improved upon on Load. This was much better compared to the black album which was alright, but was unfocused and not as tightly woven as Load.
Laugh out loud top two is Metallica, I bet all the butt-hurt megadeth fans are celebrating (by the way I am in no way insulting megadeth I just love the wy Metallica fans and megadeth fans hate eachothers bands)
This album started the 3 horrid albums by Metallica which is why I think it is the worst album by great bands.
I actually like this album. Reload is terribleV3 Comments
This album turned a really good metal band into radio rock trash.
Only metalcore band I'm into and their first album is their only bad one.
Their vocalist is a hypocrite, singing about Christian values then putting out a hit on his exwife. What a loser, and besides that they blow goat phallusV1 Comment
The title tells you it isn't KISS and it is NOT KISS.
The lyrics are pretty damn good but the sound is way too electronic
Hybrid Theory and Meteora were awesome. Minutes to Midnight had some flops, but some of LP's best songs. A Thousand Suns was a cool direction for the band to go in, and it also resulted in several great songs. But this album just sounds like LP ran out of ideas.
A thousand suns a cool way for the band to go? That was their worst selling and lowest rated album bro..
It's not good. Warzone is good but everything else is very disapointing.V3 Comments
My favorite band on this list, but Mustaine messed up on this one.
This album made me stop listening to megadeth, the only good song is prince of darkness but that's it
Ok 1. Lulu is not a a Metallica album 2. God hates us all is amazing 3. Megadeth ha many albums that are on the same level as risk. This list is messed up. People... - Sabbath
Judas Priest is a great band. This album however is just awful.
What was Ripper Owens thinking?
Notice the title of this list says Great metal bands. Now that's something Priest isn't. But yeah, Demolition is pretty bad, even by Priest's standards.
If judas priest is not a great metal band, there are no great metal bands
