23Kidz Bop

Unlike the good bands and artists on this list kids bop should be #1 (no it's not hashtag 1, it's number one) they have no talent whatsoever they butcher other songs and can't come up with their own music. Those kids and their managers need to be blown up by a nuclear bomb now before they release their 26th album. Kill Kidz bop before it's too late

Ugh I just can't stand them they just drive me nuts. I mean if you're going to sing covers, at leat make them good, or you may as well go back to singing the itsy bitsy spider

24MetallicaMetallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". more.

This and Green Day are my favorite bands ever! Everybody hates them just because they are the best. If they're so bad, why do they have from professional ratings the number one and number three metal albums ever! - treyanthonyyeah

Metallica are brilliant! They should not be on this list never mind so high up on it!

Metallica is bad, I don't know why everyone loves them. Metal music is: Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne

I agree that Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden are great bands. In fact, I Love them. But Metallica has good music too. Many killer hits.

Megadeth are better

Michael Jackson was a singer, songwriter, producer, choreographer, entertainer and humanitarian. He donated (at least) a remarkable 300,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King more.

What Michael Jackson doing on this list? Dude, he's best of the best, duh

This dude is overrated. He's like the JB of the 80s/90s. His voice sounds like a British transgendered woman. And he's horrible at everything he does except dancing.

26Kurt CobainKurt Cobain was born February 20, 1967, in Aberdeen, Washington. In 1988, he started the grunge band Nirvana. He was a talented yet troubled grunge performer. Kurt Cobain became a rock legend in the 1990s with his band. He committed suicide at his Seattle home in 1994.

He shouldn't be on this list he is awesome he is the last real rock star

Terrible so-called "singer. " He screamed in a pathetic whiny voice and couldn't sing to save his pathetic, drug-fueled life.

27Blood on the Dance FloorBlood on the Dance Floor was an American crunkcore group that last consisted of multi-instrumentalist, singer and rapper Dahvie Vanity and singer and rapper Jayy von Monroe, that formed in 2007 in Florida and disbanded in 2016 . more.V2 Comments

No way should they be on this list let alone 15th smells like teen spirit, heart shaped box and breed are some of the greatest songs ever and anyone who has voted them up is a complete moron who knows nothing about music

Why are people voting for them? Kurt Cobain didn't even want the fame he is getting blamed for!

Really? The guys that brought grunge to the mainstream and became the band of the 90s in the process?

30Mariah CareyMariah Carey is an American singer, songwriter, record producer, and actress. She won 5 Grammys, got her documentary movie "Glitter" and also one of the biggest best-selling women in the music industry. more.

Who on earth put the world's greatest female singer up here?!?! Are you high?!?!? Mariah Carey is an AMAZING singer. She does NOT belong ANYWHERE NEAR this list!

31Justin Timberlake
32Don Omar

I'm a proud Puertorican male and it bothers me to hear these supposed artists whom consider themselves musicians, songwriters etc. Even get air play. This Genre of "Reggaeton" is an embarrassment to real latin artists with real talent. I consider this Genre noise pollution. There is no creativity with music hear at all, Zero. Don Omar takes credit and is recognized as the pioneer of this movement so he gets the title of Worst Artist by default. Daddy Yankee, DON OMAR AND THE REST OF THESE CLOWNS. All they did was take a Reggae Beat and rap to it. That's it that's all they did. Where is the talent in that? True Artists from the island that I love are El Gran Combo, Tito Rojas, Hector Lavoe and countless others. They are true artists in every sense of the word. That Genre is called Salsa and that is something that we should be proud of.

33Led ZeppelinLed Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.V1 Comment
34Taylor SwiftTaylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin more.

I can't stand her AT ALL. Nearly every girl or woman likes her which is just stupid. All of her songs have the same theme and she's insanely overrated.

I'm a girl and I have to agree. She's very pretty and she does have a good singing voice, but she's just not creative in her music. It seems like break ups are all she ever sings about, which does get old after a while, making her hard to listen to. I think she's pretty and nice and all, but I am NOT a Taylor Swift fan. Not of her music.

I Expected to see this a little bit higher than here 'cause this girl sings live like like something is stepping on a throat, she's just a drama, not a singer.

35Katy PerryKatheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. more.

How can you have all these great artists - Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, Queen, and so on - and have Katy Perry be so low? That's like burning all the great, influential books you come in contact with and choosing to read Twilight. There's just no life put into the finished product, it's just all for money and fame. - d3bates

Katy Perry your movie is totaly fake you do not live in a fairy tale. You are a good singer but I hate you

Totally she is a true Christian, gospel, pop-metal and pop rock
All of these good singers and bands and tottaly is JB is a stupid and a b---h - Tifficulty

36Fall Out BoyFall Out Boy is an American rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

They clearly don't belong on this list.

...Remind me why Fall Out Boy is here? You can't. Because they're amazing.

This list is completely ruined by trolls

37DrakeAubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

Drake is just an cheap copy of Lenny Kravitz. Same flow, same bull texts, same skin color. Everything the same.

Drake, you did NOT start from the bottom!

38Daddy Yankee
39Freddie MercuryFreddie Mercury was born in Stone Town, Tanzania he later became a British singer, songwriter and record producer, known as the lead vocalist and songwriter of the rock band Queen. He also became known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range. Before he became a singer he has been more.
