Top Ten Worst Albums by Good Artists

The Contenders: Page 5XW

81The Clash - Cut the Crap

Joe Strummer is spinning in his grave...

82Mac Miller - Watching Movies With the Sound Off
83Inxs - Switch
84Sepultura - Roots
85Mobb Deep - Blood Money

Mobb Deep is one of my favorite rap groups,prodigy is one of the greatest storytellers in hip-hop,and havoc is one of the great producers.But this was truely as low as you can get.The stink of a bad g-unit album is all over this.The lyrics are horrible,the production sounds like something off a Tony Yayo album,and 50 Cent makes like 6 guest apperances.

86Avenged Sevenfold - Waking the Fallen

This has to be one of my favourite Sevenfold albums. I don't know why it's here. - Mumbizz01

87Judas Priest - Painkiller

Compared to demolition and many of their albums this one was great

I'll buy whatever you're smoking.

Judas priest are metal gods I know but this album sucks - nikhilpratapsingh

88Green Day - Nimrod

89Van Halen - Van Halen III

From after the infamous Van Hagar, where every album hit #1 only for sounding like an extended Pepsi ad.

The guy on the cover is waiting to be shot after hearing this awful album. - Mumbizz01

90Nickelback - Dark Horse

Nickelback was amazing before they completely sold out with Dark Horse in 2008. Before Dark Horse, most of their songs were actually meaningful and covered topics like relationships and old memories (e.G. "How You Remind Me" and "Photograph"). Since Dark Horse, pretty much all they sing about now is sex, strippers, drugs, parties...

The album that represented their downfall. People didn't massively hate them until this one. Burn it to the Ground was the only good song on it.

An album that, unfortunately, makes pre-Dark Horse Nickelback sound good.

This wasn't that good nowadays they talk about what pop stars talk about

91Lady Gaga - Born This Way

Some songs are ok... But The Fame was way better.

Last ones was better, it's TRUE but by the way is perfect.

92Linkin Park - Recharged
93Evanescence - Evanescence

Again, the album is good. (In my opinion) - Mumbizz01

94Metal Machine Music - Lou Reed

To be honest, when I would wake up in the night, I would put this album on. - Mumbizz01

I own this. It's a novelty. If you are listening to it for a song, catchy tune, or lyrics, you'll hate it. If you listen to it as an experiment with what you can do with a guitar, you'll still hate it, but a bit less.
The lock groove at the end of the LP is at least intriguing.

95Confident - Demi Lovato
96Iron Maiden - Virtual XI
97Having Fun with Elvis on Stage - Elvis Presley

This will go down in history as one of the worst albums of all time.

98Flo Rida - Only One Flo (Part 1)

Yes, but your missing something...Flo Rida isn't even a good artist.

99Pink Floyd - Ummagumma

Wish I could vote for this. I came to the list to see it here, and I voted for Metal Macine Music. Whatever. The live part is actually pretty good, but the studio section is horrible. Sysuphus (penned by Wright) is a four part piece, the first two parts are good, the others are incredibly boring. Grantchester Meadows is okay, I guess, but drawn out and too long. Several Species Of Small Furry Animals Gathered Together In A Cave And Grooving With A Pict, which is totally the easiest title in the world to remember, is the worst song by Pink Floyd. It features... Mouth noises by Roger Waters?... And Scottish poems? *rolls eyes*

The Narrow Way is the best song of the album, which is saying something, because it isn't the greatest thing in the world. It does feature the first vocal performance by Gilmour. And...finally there is The Grand Vizier's Garden Party, which is a snore.

100Method Man - Tical 0: The Prequel

People have always complained that meths solo albums are lazy and half hearted but this is when he really hit rock bottom.
