The Top Ten

1
One Direction
People only like them because there a bunch of pretty boys even though their music sucks

wolphert

A band who are only popular because of their annoying teenage fan base who seem to think being good-looking makes you good at singing.
Seriously, they should be first on this list. Nobody cares about the Joe bros anymore, even if they do suck. At least 1D doesn't have a Disney series, but still...
[Newest]These guys have zero talent whatsoever!

2Jonas Brothers
HOW CAN ANYONE DISLIKE QUEEN, LED ZEPPELIN, GUNS N ROSES, PINK FLOYD, THE BEATLES, AC/DC, BLACK SABBATH, THE POLICE, AND RUSH? THESE GUYS ARE LEGENDS OF ROCK N ROLL! EVERYONE THAT I KNOW HATES THE JONAS BROTHERS AND OTHERS TERRIBLE BANDS ON THIS LISTS, BUT THEY LIKE THE ROCK LEGENDS.
Metallica should't be on this list, and The Jonas Brothers suck more than my vacuum
These guys are horrible. The rest of the list is horrible too. Who put Metallica, Nirvana, Slipknot, Queen, and A7X in here?
[Newest]I don't agree with a lot of the other bands being on here, but the Jonas Brothers deserve number 1.

3Nickelback
I don't actually "hate" these guys, I just don't like how they overuse certain themes for their songs like "sex, drugs, strippers, and getting high. " I rather listen to Linkin Park, Metallica, The Beatles, and Three Days Grace in my opinion.
The only reason I pick these guys is cause I refuse to consider any one higher than this a band, there just guys used by the man to make money off of preteen girl with no taste in music (aside from Brokecyde, cause I don't know who that is) and I do not really like Nickleback. On a totally different note I really like Green Day but I know you have to be into a specific style for that.
Their a bunch of hosers! If you like this kinda music good for you your obviously not into metal at all. You probably think Metallica is the heaviest band ever also well hate to burst your bubble but I could name 1,000 bands the are heavier and just better in all ways. Please go look, you will find that bands like this are for girls. So if your a chick you get a pass, just barely get a pass. Any dude caught listening to this should be shot!
[Newest]If they made all of their songs like Burn it to the Ground, they wouldn't be hated. Great Rock Guitar and Vocals, but then make the most slow and boring songs.

4Blood On the Dance Floor
God awful sound - should be closer to the top of the list, in my opinion, if not AT the top. Not to mention how the lead guy (dahvie vanity or whatever the hell he calls himself) has a teen sex fetish and has charges for sexual assault on a minor, fitting considering their music is mostly marketed towards hello kitty sceneybopper 13-year-olds. Other more moral but equally musically challenged bands called him out on this, saying that he was taking a lot of underage girls to the tour bus.

This band's lyrics are also piss-poor. In "crucified by your lies" dahvie compares himself to jesus (creed much? ) and whines about being exposed as a pedophile. And in another song "We all die; It’s in our fully big adventure" fans call this deep and passionate? What? Does "fully big adventure" even make sense?

All in all, they are two sex offenders and terrible singers who try too hard to be like bloodhound gang. The only way they know how to try and market themselves away from little girls is to swear and scream about sex, which said little girls actually love because it pisses off mommy.
I honestly cannot begin to describe the hatred for this band. I can understand how some people (Young scene girls who want to be apart of something bigger than themselves) might possible buy their "Music", but then we get onto the band themselves. The band (Used quite lightly in this case) consist of two pedophiles who exploit not only underage, but incredibly young girls (ages for girls claiming assault vary from 12 to 17) as a part of a teenage fetish. It's speculated that there are even more girls that this Dahavie has violated, because he's brainwashed these young girls into believing he is a type of God, much like a cult leader.

TL;DR, the band is utterly disgusting and needs to be put down. How this "man" is able to walk around our streets is, frankly, unbelievable.
Their name should explain how much they suck! It makes me want to bleed on a dance floor! I don't know who idea it was to sign these dudes but they need to be stabbed. One of the guys raped a girl. Come on!
[Newest]I don't hate them for who they are, I just don't like their music.

5Naked Brothers Band
Yeah thanks for pioneering this whole "kids singing in the big music business instead of floating around Disney were they belong. " And why is Slipknot (23) only 6 bands behind you guys? I usually respect peoples opinions but really!? I don't get it, they're great.
I thought the show was disgusting from the start. Putting children out into a rough industry full of sex and drugs and trying to market them as legitimate? I was horrified to see in the show some refined old woman asking these stupid kids for autographs. Total fantasy... And seeing a seven-year-old in rocker clothes is scary.
WHAT THE HELL! I thought it was a DUMB show that was about a DUMB band but it was actually a real band? , THAT'S JUST MESSED UP

SmoothCriminal

[Newest]This is seriously the worst band in history

6Insane Clown Posse
They sound even stupider than they look
Two trailer-trash types who wear face paint, pretend to be a street gang and drench cult devotees in cheap soda called Faygo, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope are more notorious for their beef with Eminem (who pistol-whipped an ICP homey in 2001) than their ham-fisted rap-rock music. They claim that a "dark carnival" visited them one night, prophesied impending apocalypse and made them its messengers. Between this circus gospel, they find plenty of time to rap about 40-ouncers and venereal disease.
WHO. PUT. RAMMSTEIN. ON. THIS. LIST?! Whoever said that has no soul. Insane Clown Posse is by far the worst band to ever exist. They're not even music. They're fat white guys from Detroit who think they're cool because they smoke ungodly amounts of weed and act like thugs. They should be executed. BUT, RAMMSTEIN?! THAT'S THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD.
They could perform in a festival in salt lake city. Burning man escapes.
[Newest]I looked them up. They are not a band. There terrible!

7Big Time Rush
Worst band ever and on their T.V. show they act like they're 5 year olds.
I have a big time rush when I see them. A big time rush of VOMIT
Worst actors they can't even sing. This on of the worst mistakes in music history.
[Newest]Their show is so annoying.

8Brokencyde
Metallica? Nirvana? Led Zeppelin? Pink Floyd? Queen? They are all legendary! I'm not even a Nirvana fan but I'm smart enough to realize they are nowhere near the worst.
Do not get me started on these guys. They're far worse than the Jonas Brothers. And who put Cannibal Corpse, Megadeth, Metallica and Guns N' Roses over this? Anyone who hates those bands must die a painful death.
Cannibal Corpse sucks. If you think their lyrics are any good, you're either an elitist or a child molester
Why is Led Zeppelin in this list, Led Zeppelin doesn't deserve to be in this list. BrokeNCYDE is the all time worst band ever in the whole world. Only scene kids are fans of BrokeNCYDE.

LedZeppelinIsAwesome

[Newest]Whoever put Creed at 1# at the real worst rock bands list probably doesn't know Brokencyde.

9Tokio Hotel
Linkin park Here? come on! tokio hotel sucks, linkin park rocks!
I met this german guy once. He said that "tokio hotel is not music"
How can someone say like that for Them?
Their song dark side of the sun is one of my most favorite

Ananya


10Girls' Generation
Their music isn't THAT bad but it always seem to relate to boys. Watch their music video and see for yourself: pretending your high school girls fanning over hot boys is not impressive. They seriously need to grow up...
Not just SNSD, but all the mainstream K-pop groups. I don't just hate them, I hate their fans too(most of them).

CrazeBoutMayday

This should be 4th in the list.
[Newest]Good music but they just talk about sex and flirting

The Contenders

11Kidz Bop
They ruin almost every good song. The kids aren't good singers. They should just write their own songs and leave the good ones alone.
They take bad songs, and make it worse than it needs to be

Top15Playthroughs

Really? Rammstein is worse than Kidz Bop?
Sigh
No worries rammstein is lower I think, so no longer a concern for you
[Newest]Just STOP Musical Labels. People under the age of 15 CANNOT sing. Kidz Bop is an awful "band" that doesn't sing songs to the right tempo or tone. They managed to RUIN some of the only SLIGHTLY good pop songs out there. GO BACK TO SCHOOL, KIDS!

12Limp Bizkit
In reality they aren't the worst, rollin and break stuff are alright, but the rest of there stuff is over-the-top crap, fred durst is an obnoxious idiot who loves attention, like I said there are worse, but these guys are why people hate nu metal
What? You call their musics as art? It's more like a full of piece of crap. They don't even deserve the title as the best Metal band. I would rather listen to Linkin Park, Five Finger Death Punch, Avenged Sevenfold, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Three Days Grace, and Dead by Sunrise, these bands create REAL music, which is I call "ART".
Limp Bizkit is actually really good. They get way more hate than they deserve just like Nickleback. Sure Fred Durst can be a little annoying but I got used to it in time. Their music in my opinion is pretty good. The only people that don't like them are people that don't believe rap and rock should mix. Also it gets pretty annoying when people compare them to other bands like Metallica. They are 2 different bands and are not similar whatsoever. -_-
[Newest]Keep rollin rollin rollin rollin what

13Creed
How can anyone understand what Scott is saying! I mean really, every time I listen to a Creed song it sounds like the lead singer has something in his throat (or up his ass) anyway, Creed sucks no questions asked! P.s Diuguifiugiugdeiugreiugiregiudevhieufhoiregoivrhiurehigreoirhorifgoirvvgeroigffriherovihaverepgrohforuheiovgiorrhirogvirgriotrhavekirgh (couldn't resist
I heard Mark Tremonti, the guitarist of creed, along with their bassist and drummer formed a new band called Alter Bridge, replacing Scott with Myles Kennedy. I find Alter Bridge a bit better compared to Creed
I'm suprised this band isn't in the top 10. No talent, very cheesy band.

For their 2009 reunion tour, sales were so horrendous in Birmingham that tickets were lowered to 75 cents. Shows how much the fans have moved on.

Seriously, this band sucks balls.

14LMFAO
They are the suckiest band ever. It is impossible to describe in words how crappy this band is. To start, HOW IS LMFAO NOT ON HERE BUT THE BEATLES ARE? And also, I don't know how Party Rock Anthem ever became famous. It is so bloody catchy yet the worst song ever!
They should be number 1 because they are so annoying and they think that they are all that and they think that life is just about partying they should all drop dead right now
The fact they're not in the top ten destroys my faith in humanity. They're not sexy an they do know it.
[Newest]Whoever points out that they're not sexy, that's THE POINT, THE SONG WAS SUPPOSED TO BE STUPID

15R5
I hate this band. They are so stupid and their songs have no depth to them. They are all about how cool they are or how the world revolves around them. I know two kids who LIKE this horrible excuse for a group. And they are guys, my age. Its because their parents are super Christian and limit to Christian and REALLY CHEESY pop music, like this. And since they don't know what real music or real talent is, they hate it when I show them real stuff.

Bottom line is, R5 is the worst band I have ever come in contact with, and I hate Ross Lynch the most out of them. As a solo artist, he sucks and has no depth or reality to his music at all (I died of laughter when I heard "I got that rock and roll! "). What a joke. And when he's in a band, he manages crap like "Come on, get loud! ".

R5 is a joke. Get them out before the Musical Depression gets worse
Oh, fangirls. Just stop. We are allowed to hate any band we want. You said one direction is untalented, and people like them (I don't know why), but we feel the same way about R5. Everyone has different perceptions of what talent is, and to me, talent is writing music about things other than just love songs, and actually singing without so much autotune. I know you like R5 and I respect that, but stop telling us that WE have to like R5 when we don't. I did give them a chance, I listened to an entire album by them, and I hated it. Please, like R5 if you want, but stop being so arrogant and uptight when people say they don't. It's close minded people like you that make me fear for the next generation. Are you going to verbally lambast people because of their political and religious views? Probably, if you make this big of a deal out of musical taste.
I agree with your argument but I find one direction made the first statement confusing.
R5 is just a brainwashing device formed by Disney (look it up) made up of "attractive" teenage boys (and a girl, just so they can't be a boy band) to produce money and sales from the lowest end of the evolutionary scale, known to some as "R5ers".

I'm tired of fangirls calling me a jealous hater, because honestly, they have no talent. I'm jealous of bands that can play instruments, can sing, and have actual talent, not this cheesy ass Disney group that thinks they are a band.

I'm also tired of fangirls who claim this band is the best band ever and claim they know so much about music, yet they diss and hate on everyone who likes other artists. They have actually said The Beatles, John Lennon, Johnny Cash, and Pink Floyd are inferior to R5. What? I lost faith in humanity, if people are stupid enough to say that so-called "music" is better than those legends of music.
[Newest]This band is the worst

16Black Veil Brides
You know, I wouldn't hate this band as much as I do if it weren't for their fans. I go to school with tons of these people, and they truly believe that Black Veil Brides is better than Led Zeppelin. If that's not enough, they don't shut the hell up about how it "saved their lives" or "stopped them from cutting"
This band really sucks, and thus band does not save lives... bands don't save lives. If you really wanted to kill yourself a band isn't there to stop you. Only attention seekers say bands saved their lives... I'm No supporting suicide But a band isn't stopping you from killing yourself
Music has been proven through studies to help depression, therefore bands can save lives
Just no. That's all I have to say about these disgraces.
[Newest]I quite like them but it's their fans who are beyond awful but the music isn't so bad.

17The Wanted
They can't sing, they can't dance, and they have a terrible fan base. They're songs have no meaning. Who likes a girl because of how she walks? No one exactly. They are very annoying and not good looking Nathan is ok but I can't stand looking at the rest of them.
They can't even sing their song are good but they just shouldn't sing them they should be number 1 on the list.
They should not even be ranked this well
[Newest]Hmm... All of their music are sucks... Just like them...

18Hello Kitty Suicide Club
I just listened to this... Just sounds like a girl who is screaming... Or being brutally murdered. It sucks... It even gave me a headache...
Disgrace to screaming music
Just a little kid screaming
[Newest]I listened to them with headphones on full volume. Terrible mistake.

19Super Junior
Lost faith in humanity after seeing Nirvana, Linkin Park, Green Day, Oasis and Queen here.
Super Jackass is the best Name for them
I'm going to stick with Pierce the Veil and My Chemical Romance for now...

20The Black Eyed Peas
A load of pointless techno nonsense for nutcases who've never heard a good song in their lives. Anybody ever heard 'My Humps'? Possibly one of the worst songs in history, next to 'Friday', 'Baby' and 'What Makes You Beautiful'.

sameera62

I heard My Humps on a video called Top 10 most hated Music, The person who sang the song is a PERVERT!
Everyone should hate them, they are killing MUSIC
THEY SUCK! They copy almost every single classic rock group (Dick Dale, just to name one) and turns into stupid auto-tuned rap bullcrap.
[Newest]Their teamwork is NOT good! The other two (i don't know who they are) get too little attention!

It's always Fergie and Will.I. am! (MY OPINION GUYS! )

Number18


21U2
This band is awesome
I agree. Why do people hate on them so much? They're one of the calmest, most relaxed bands I've ever listened to.
U2 is awesome. Whoever put it on this list is either deaf or an idiot
Why does everyone hate U2? Or rather, why do people hate on Bono? U2 is a great band, I love their song, "Sunday, bloody sunday". I don't understand why people HATE U2, Even though they are one of the greatest bands I know. If you want to hate an overrated band, Hate Green Day... They're a band that's WAY overplayed, I'm listening to them right now! Green Day should be at least on the top 20.
[Newest]Get U2 off the list!

22Anal C***
Sorry, these are the two worst words ever coined to make a band name. Grindcore sucks anyways. Why would anyone name their band "Anal C***" in the first place?
AxCx is the true worst band ever, intentionally so.
Now I'm completely fine if anyone likes this band, but please do not shove your hatred down my throat just because I don't like it. it doesn't matter to me at all if you like something.
[Newest]They were a parody band, so don't hate on them. I love their music because it makes fun out of bands who try to be way too edgy.

23Dot Dot Curve
Only scene kids can listen to this trash. I don't understand what positive qualities these crunkcore "bands" possess. They are no different than pop musicians in the fact that they have terrible electronic instrumentals; and sing about sex, drinking, and partying.

24Maroon 5
They were a real good rock band when they were still "Kara's Flower" and at their debut album "Songs About Jane (Their ONLY best)", but gosh they slowly turn to mainstream pop and becoming Adam Levine's show. Their second and third album are disappointing, but Overexposed has too-much-oversold singles and their most annoying one.
This is one band which turned good to bad, and bad to worse... There was a time when I used to LIKE the band, NOT ANY MORE...

manavrai92

These comments are quite annoying. Music for five year olds? Have you HEARD the lyrics? Stupid love songs? Well... they're not STUPID but it'd be nice if they played a song about something else for once. But let's make things clear: most of you guys said you liked at least ONE of their songs. And for pointing that out, you just proved Maroon 5 is NOT one of the "worst bands ever." Thank you.
[Newest]I would not listen to this band even if someone payed me to.

25Selena Gomez and the Scene
I hate the music and they think there all cool
I hate selena... She was never supposed to become singer.. Oh sorry correction her deserve to become a singer.. this band makes the worst possible songs ever... I love you like a love song yeah seriously?
She is overrated can;t sing can't act. She latches onto other famous people for fame cause she has no talent.
[Newest]She has a very big ugly nose. With all that money you would think she would get a nose job

26The Pussycat Dolls
So the pussycat dolls are better than U2, Linkin Park, Green Day and Nirvana? Who's voting on this list? These are 4 brilliant bands and Fall out boy and Goo Goo dolls aren't far behind. On the other hand there are the Pussycat Dolls. Is it just me or is Nicole Scherzinger (by the way the worlds most annoying person as we found out from x factor) the only one who sings whilst the others just dance around in the background, trying to look pretty? Don't cha is probably their best song and it does my head in - only fit for one of those seriously cheesy school discos.
Yeah goo goo dolls, oh come on give me a break, I'd rather lock myself in a cabin and listen to Nirvana, Linkin Park, and Green Day.
OK so the title kind of gives the IDEA of how bad that

27Goo Goo Dolls
Iris was beautiful shut up
What this band is amazing. They put so much emotion into their songs. Iris is my favourite song. Disappointed in this list.
Iris is amazing! And why are the Beatles here?

28Death at a Rave

29Falling In Reverse
The only reason Falling In Reverse sucks because Ronnie Radke is a dick
Ronnie Radke is a dick. Otherwise Falling In Reverse is awesome.
Why is this band on the list like oh my god people these bands don't even desevre to be here well exepcet goo goo doll
He doesn't sing in his songs, he just talks, although their lyrics aren't bad

30Fun.
Indescribably bad. How these Auto-Tuned, Z-grade Queen rip-offs haven't even made the list is well beyond me.
And their name sucks too! If you say you hate fun and people don't know you're talking about the band, well, there yo go!
We are young is far too repetitive, which is one thing almost everyone knows.

31Fall Out Boy
You all need to get a life fall out boy shouldn't even be on this list, For god sake! There music is catchy, and Patrick is an amazing singer! The rest of you dumbasses should clean your ears out
I only like the song thanks for the memories
Fall out boy are amazing! Why is this on here
[Newest]They DO NOT deserve to be here. Sure, their older songs were good, but other than that, they're GREAT!

32ABBA
What the heck! Was this person on high drugs when they put this on?!?
Abba are a million times better than any of the no talent losers on this site! They have actual music talent and can play instruments and sing. Heaven forbid!

33'N Sync
Worst band ever, deserves to be in this list

nikhilpratapsingh

Not true. They are the only boy band that has real music, like, ever.
What about The Beatles? Or The Rolling Stones? Technically, those were boy bands.

343OH!3
All of their songs are the same. They mean nothing, and some of the tunes are plain annoying.
Deep lyrics, interesting sounds and talent. You will not find any of these three things with this musical group.
They just suck... I think they are the worst thing that ever happened to mainstream music, after Justin Bieber.
[Newest]Not a good band at all

35Guns N Roses
The original Guns N Roses was great, but now the only one left from the original line-up is Axl. Shudders
Guns N' Roses is the single least impressive famous hard rock band in history. 3 songs do not make a great album. 3 songs do not make a great band. 3 songs do not make a great guitarist. Guns N' Roses represents the end of quality rock and the beginning of the era of hype music. Their biggest problem was not all the misogyny, racism and homophobia (those things helped them sell records). It was not an ability to play or sing. It was a complete inability to write much at all which resulted in so many covers. In their entire career, they did not follow up "Welcome to the Jungle" with a single memorable hard rock song. To compare, look at all the songs on Van Halen's first 4 albums.
They are just an awful overhyped overrated hair band. They have one semi talented member in slash, but even then he is not one of the greats. People think he is good because of his mysterious image, whereas if he wore normal clothes and had normal hair no one would give him a second thought. Look at Gary Moore, a similar blues guitarist who is inextricable more talented and innovative. And the rest of the members are just talented nobodies, axl had to rely on a bad boy image and controversy to create media hype as he realised that his music was just not up to scratch
[Newest]What the hell? Slash is awesome

36CN Blue
There are no good song coming from this band, ever. They are good looking, but they are definitely can't do music

37Green Day
Green Day doesn't suck. It's the fans arguing that makes everyone think that the band sucks. The people who liked Green Day when they played at Gilman and made Kerplunk/1039/Dookie just listen to those albums and the people who like 21st Century Breakdown and American Idiot just listen to those. If you like all of their albums, listen to all of their albums. If you hate it, don't waste your time hating on it and if you like Green Day, listen to them as much as you like. As much as people say Green Day is for posers, well your only acting like a poser for following that so called "Cool" kid that says that they suck. Green Day was never "punk" and there's no reason to hate on them for that. If you're gonna be here to complain that Green Day used to be "punk" and you're hating on them for becoming "sellouts" then go listen to what you consider punk. It doesn't really matter. Green Day fans can listen to Green Day, and if you don't really take an interest in them then just go take your music tastes somewhere where you won't waste your time hating on a band.
Thank you! Finally somebody has written a reasonable explanation for haters and posers! Personally, I love Green Day, and I love all their albums. I used to hate on bands like 1D and The Wanted, but over these past few months I have changed my opinions about music; people have the right to listen to what they want. When I see someone insulting a band, I usually leave a comment saying "Please respect others" or something like that. Thank you for this post

georgielikesgreenday

Green Day is an amazing band. They have very good music and their album "American Idiot" was very good. I don't think they should be on this list.
There is no reason Green Day should be on this list. Dookie is one of the best albums ever, my favorite is When I come around and Longview, Welcome to paradise is great, so is Pulling Teeth. My point is, I love Green Day and I completely disagree with their placement on this list.
[Newest]I hate people for this.

38Daughtry
Can't come up with a good name so just use his last name. Ego much?
All this band can do is sing cheesy made-for-adult contemporary radio ballads (Are Daughtry even a rock band? ). Plus the lead singer is a douchebag, I've heard and BFF with Chad Kroeger (Douchebags for life, baby! )

Want real rock, listen to Faith No More. Now there's some vocal talent right there, just not from some crappy reality television show!
Think about Biersack then. That's the name of Andy biersack's first band, ass.

39Simple Plan
What? From what I've heard, they're pretty good.
They Sing songs for losers... Makes you feel depressed and lonely, Suck big time!

40Cannibal Corpse
Cannibal Corpse are the most shameful band to have ever existed. Their album art is disgracefully wrong on every level, their lyrics are borderline tasteless and explore subjects that are way out of line, they can't even play instruments properly, the production is massively rushed, the vocals are incomprehensible screeches. They make nothing but noise, noise and more noise. The people who like them have no ability to understand all of this, and it's concerning.
I don't like Cannibal Corpse but if you seriously think they can't play their instruments you obviously know absolutely nothing about music, their bassist is incredible
Horrible, gore-obsessed band that gives heavy metal a bad name. They try too hard to be shocking and as a result they sound over the top and pathetic. Just read their lyrics, they're so filthy and meaningless that it is makes you want to vomit but at the same time pity them for having the imagination of an angry 10-year old. A detestable band.
Music doesn't get much worse than cannibal corpse... Ugh awful band, worst band ever, PERIOD. I hate them so much X(
This is a response to the last response-most pop there are some singers that have great emotion and not plain generic
[Newest]I think we can all agree that Ace Ventura brought us here.

41My Chemical Romance
The Hell is wrong with whoever put this on, My Chemical Romance is a great band that helped get me through my depression
My Chemical Romance is actually, really good. If you'd listen to songs like "Skylines and Turnstiles" or "Our Lady of Sorrows", you might really like them. They're labelled as emo, when in reality they sound nothing like other emo bands. (Black Veil Brides, Blood on the Dance Floor, Falling in Reverse, etc. ) Most people judge before they listen, but don't be that guy, My Chemical Romance is a good band.
Oh. My. God! You can't be serious. Just because they're a punk band doesn't mean you can put them on the list. Have you heard the song Teenagers or Helena or t the end or mama?
[Newest]Why is My Chemical Romance on here... ? They are so talented and emotional and put a ton of effort into their music!

42The Chainsmokers
Please radio! I don't want to hear about whiny selfie takers!

43Paramore
This band doesn't deserve to be here. They are pretty good.
Paramore is god awful. They are a disgrace, and them being classified as rock music gives me a good laugh.
Everything is about Hayley Williams. She sounds like any other female vocalist. The guitarists don't even get credit (not that they deserve it. ) The lyrics are crappy, pop garbage with no depth. Paramore fans act like its illegal to hate Paramore. So, I hate Paramore, whether you like it or not.
Hey shut up this is a great band
[Newest]Paramore is a good band, why are they on here?

44Bastille
How can Bastille be in this list they are amazing! The only song you've probably heard is pompeii. Before you hate you should listen to other songs like flaws and daniel in the den.
Bastille is actually really good!
An insanely boring band, no different from any other wannabe modern band of today, they don't have a recognizable style.

45Design the Skyline
Terrible... They are trying to be metal, but they end up doing nothing but meaningless screaming, and awful instrumentals.
If they were actually famous they would be number 1, but thankfully thy were not
Why aren't They Number 1? Seriously!

46N-Dubz

47Poison
You haven't been to the drive-in
I kinda like these guys, C.C. Deville is A pretty cool guy... Not just C.C. , but the whole band is pretty down to earth. They have got a few good tracks, I love that song, "nothing' but a good time" And "Talk dirty to me". When they came out with a new version of the song, (Not a cover of the song, someone just stole the name from Poison. ) It really sucked... Not sure who did it, But who ever did must really be desperate...
Why the hell is this ban not on here
They are literally the worst band ever
Talk dirty to me and every rose has its thorns
Is worst the sitting on a bed of thorns
Thank god Grunge killed this band and all of its kinds
Also why is Nirvana. Foo fighters. Led Zeppelin
Aerosmith Muse & Sound garden on this list.
Also rammstien sucks and deserves to be on this list

48Sleeping With Sirens
They are an amazing band! It's just a band name!
Was whoever put this here high on heroin and meow meow when they put this here? Yeah... I thought so.
What? Naw. Whoever put this on here was obviously high on meow meow and half drunk. Or they're just a tasteless fool.

49I Set My Friends On Fire
They have funny songs

50Slipknot
Slipknot is amazing you assbag! These are rock and heavy metal legends who are worth 55million$. They're praised for being different from anyone before and after them! What other 55million$ band that has 9 people
WHY? They have a amazing singer and awesome riffs! Duality, vermillion, disasterpiece and other Songs! They are very good an who put them in this list has no idea of real music
The hell is Slipknot here for? The person that said they're a poser band can shove his metal purist attitude up his arse and embrace the New Wave of American Heavy Metal, bby!
[Newest]Corey is the most swearing singer in the world, immoral guy!

51Spice Girls

52Blink-182
Why Blink 182 here?
Are people deaf? This band is great!
You can't compare this band to Green Day. That's my only problem with them though. This band should be compared to Sum 41 though...
[Newest]How is this above Fifth Harmony?

53JLS
I hate them so much. They're annoying as hell and they can't sing at all. I can't believe that real musicians and true artists are being ignored while crap like this is getting all the fame. Its not fair.
A girl I knew in school loved JLS and once played a series of their songs. They all sounded pretty much the same.

SUCH A TERRIBLE BAND THEY CAN'T EVEN PLAY INSTRUMENTS AND THEY CAN'T SING
[Newest]All of their songs SUCK!

54Coldplay
WHAT? Okay. People, before you go hating Coldplay, look at them. Coldplay is the greatest band of all time. From their first (released) album, Parachutes, to Ghost Stories, Coldplay has had so many captivating songs that will either lift your heart up into the clouds or plunge it into a deep pit of thought and wonder, all while making you starving for more. Their music is all thought out, well written, and the instruments blend perfectly. Chris Martin's voice is BREATHTAKING. When I listen to his voice, it gives me the same feeling as I had when I looked at the clear beach in Costa Rica or when I looked at the falls in Yosemite. And it isn't coated in auto-tune like half the other bands on this list. The tunes are simple but amazing, and the instruments blend together perfectly.

Before you click that "VOTE" button, just listen to The Hardest Part, We Never Change, High Speed, 42, Lost!, Amsterdam, Green Eyes, A Warning Sign, A Rush of Blood to the Head, Ink, O, Violet Hill, Till Kingdom Come, and Swallowed in the Sea. I could name all my favorites, but I might as well just copy and paste a complete list of their songs. You have no right to vote for them now otherwise. If you can manage to listen to all of those songs and still dislike them, well, you just may be an abnormal alien creature. I'm sorry, I don't mean to dislike people for their tastes, but, how can you dislike Coldplay enough to call them the worst band ever?

pandagirl

Who put this on the list? Same goes for Bastille, Linkin Park, Muse, and Fall Out Boy. Coldplay is one of, if not, THE greatest band of all time. I mean, look at their songs! There's Yellow, Don't Panic, The Scientist, God Put a Smile Upon Your Face, In My Place, Clocks, Swallowed in the Sea, Speed of Sound, Viva La Vida, Violet Hill, Lost!, Lovers in Japan, Life in Technicolor ii, Paradise, Charlie Brown, Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, Major Minus, Atlas, Magic, Midnight, Oceans, and A Sky Full of Stars. Anybody who hates this band needs to check into therapy and get yourself straightened out.
WHAT. No. Just no. Coldplay is one of the BEST bands of all time. Now I have to admit, their two latest albums (Viva la Vida: 2008 and Mylo Xyloto: 2011) weren't the greatest (VLV makes me shudder). But their earlier albums (Parachutes: 2000; A Rush of Blood to the Head: 2002; X&Y: 2005) are EXCELLENT. They have genius lyrics and their music is amazing. So take Coldplay off of this list.
[Newest]I like their music, but I feel like they copied.

55Asking Alexandria
Yes! I'm so glad it's on here. All they ever do is sing about disgusting stuff and look down on religion. They are so arrogant and have such big egos. They think they can get all the girls in the world. As if.. They are nowhere near being panty-droppers..
Hey you know what man no. Sure they were generic when they started out and their 2nd album was mainly breakdowns save a few songs. But I'm truly glad their 3rd album has pulled away from the disgusting generic hype and they're writing much better music now. I don't understand how whiny, nutless sellouts like pierce the veil and sleeping with sirens are considered better. They're the downhill slope to rock, not Asking Alexandria.
BEST BAND EVER! THEY HAVE INSPIRED ME IN SO MANY WAYS!

56Florida Georgia Line

57Muse
This band should not be in this list.
Muse is what you get when you take Queen, Rage Against the Machine, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, definitely Leppard, and The Who. How can you hate them? They're one of the most musically talented bands around today!
No, just no. Muse is awesome.
[Newest]Pretentious, noisy crap that only retards could like. They suck so bad.

58Westlife

59Dave Matthews Band

60Primus
Why the hell are Primus here? They have one of the most talented bassists ever, no to count the fact that they made hits with EXPERIMENTAL SONGS... see "My Name is Mud". Bands like this are what makes the musical flow more diverse and creative. Definitely not deserving to be in that list.

61New Kids On the Block
I hate the new kids, kidz bop, the jonas bros, r5, and the wanted but take Coldplay 1d little mix and Paramore off

62Pierce the Veil
Pierce The Veil, and literally every band along the lines of post-hardcore, rock, or metal, metalcore, etc. have no reason to be on here, for the exception of a few. You people are total idiots
Aside from being a label spitting ddickhead, I'm going to actually judge them for their music and leave stereotypes aside. Sadly, they suck and are a reason why rock music is watered down and pathetic. They are pretty much the "rock" version of 1D music, making songs for tween girls who need to grow up and develop a taste. Don't know how this trash is better than Asking Alexandria, who at least made a turn for the better with their new album. Listen to Moving On by Asking and you'll see what I mean.
This band is certainly modern crap because they're songs are really horrible, loud, annoying and have generic themes about suicide and depression also what really makes me hate them is when they did there version of (Don't Fear) The Reaper which was originally done by The Blue Öyster Cult who is also my favorite band listen to the original version then... There version
[Newest]Not keen on the voice but they don't deserve to be on here. I love the song hold on till may

635 Seconds of Summer
Really mixed opinions about this band. But this whole list is messed up. Yeah one direction should stay number one but having goo goo dolls and blink 182 on here is messed up. This whole list is messed up. I actually kind of like their songs but everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
This band has a really cool name and amazing voices, especially when they perform live. I used to think they sucked until I delved into their music. Some of their songs are crappy, but most of them are good.
Okay these guys have amazing voices, and some cool songs, but some of their songs are bad lyrically and kiddish. They're trying to be a rock band but going mainstream pop. This band has so much more potential.
[Newest]Their songs are very decent, the guys got talent and they are a punk rock band. I see no reason why it should be here

64Marilyn Manson
I don't get why people hate Marilyn Manson so much. He's actually really nice and smart once you get to know him. I recommend you check him out to see what he's like in real life.
Yeah I agree. I mean I don't recommend him to everyone because of the subject matter in his songs, but when you really get to know him, he's actually a nice guy.
Love all his songs but he is a little vulgar on stage
This guy is awesome!

65Eagles

66Cobra Starship
Cobra Starship is not only the worst title for a band ever, but I seriously believe that they are equivalent to Punk-goes-pop it's HORRIBLE. Seriously, why would you ever make music, Cobra Starship? You should probably stop making music. You only have ten fans, and they'll live if you break up because you're probably NOBODY'S favorite band. Stop. Making. Music.
Worst song title ever
They suck big time...
[Newest]Sounds very bad with an actress, Leighton Meester.

67Attila
Attila is a generic copy of every thrash metal band ever. Their lyrics suck too.
No whats wrong with attila
Who put attila in this list if anything they are amazing... fronz screamin is beyond amazing and their music is catchy
Because their music has no meaning, they're unoriginal, untalented, and just generic

68LCD Soundsystem

69Hootie & the Blowfish

70Sex Pistols

71Butthole Surfers
They are great, don't judge a boook by its cover

72X Japan

732NE1
2ne1 is good I hate who vote the 2ne1 to be the worst band ever and its top 55...

74Kings of Leon
How are they on this list? There amazing!

75No Doubt
I'm in it for "It's my Life", good song even though it's not metal like I usually listen to.
No doubt they suck.
50-50 on this one first 3-4 albums are great but then it began to suck. Their last album is garbage.
Exactly. Spiderwebs, Don't Speak, and Just a Girl are fantastic songs, but Underneath It All and Hey Baby showed an indescribably terrible turn in the direction of the band.

76Girls Aloud

77Winger

78Animal Collective

79Megadeth
Megadeth has got no song which suggests that they should be here on this list! In fact, Megadeth have some badass songs like Holy Wars and Peace Sells which are making people go headbanging all the way even after 25 years! The one who posted Megadeth here is a stupid douchebag! Dave Mustaine is a Metal God... Holy Wars is the best metal song ever! M/
Whoever put Megadeth was probably the same person who brought the lazer pen to shine the light into Dave Mustaine's eyes during the endgame tour. Megadeth is awesome

Frantic713

This world is dead now

80Destiny's Child
Just no! They are great singers and performers!
No they are good

81Pearl Jam
How is Pearl Jam on here? Pearl Jam and Nirvana basically started the genre of Grunge. Eddie Vedder is amazing!
What? Pearl Jam is awesome!
People thought the game was name any band you know

82Journey
What the Hell! Why is Journey here? Journey is one of the greatest bands I know, I love these guys, any music lover knows that. But I hate it when people know only one song, (Don't stop believin') And don't even know that it's Journey! I really hate that. The only thing worse than that is when people think it's a song that came out recently... God people if you like a song, find out who it is and listen to more by them, Especially if it's Journey!
Haha no. Journey is amazing.

83The Offspring
Such an underrated band! They are really great!
Why is The Offspring on here? They definitely aren't the best band, but they are FAR from the worst.
Novelty act... Derivative... Silly... But still fun in a Disney does a "it's a grunge world after all" kind of way.

84Bring Me the Horizon
Used to be too heavy, got really good for a while. Their new album is a terrible whiny tween appeal except for a few tunes. Still, disappointed with what they turned into.
I love this band. I can see why people hate it, but I love it. There is a hell believe me I've seen it there is a heaven lets keep it a secret is their best album in my opinion.
They are actually Extremely awesome

85Little Mix
LITTLE FIX as they are known to music fans are the worst of the worst!

They started of as a rabble of out of tune, flat voiced song attempters on THE X Factor and were so bad that the show had to brainwash the dumbest members of the general public into voting for them. They had over-load backing tracks, choirs and even fireworks to cover up their vocals. They were given emotional vts about being bullied while the camera zoomed in on close ups of a single tear rolling down a cheek as they opened and closed their mouths to Christina Aguilera's Beautiful. We were told they were "the best girl group in the world" ass they forgot the words, and how they were bringing back girl-power, as they did whatever the male producers told them to.

Since the show fixed it for them to "win" the show. Their management then "created" a fake relationship with one of One Defection to get them publicity and they get played non-stop on National UK radio and are on all the major T.V. shows. But they still fail to sell their awful music.

Their own fans walked out of some of their UK tour because they mimed while gyrating with naked, oiled up dancers - a gig for young children!

They get booed at most shows they play at... Or people just walk away in embarrassment.

And they had to cancel their US tour due to lack of sales, then pretended they had decided to cancel to focus on writing a new album "for their fans". The problem being that they have their albums written for them, they spent the time going to movie premiers and doing media work.
They even blocked their own fans on twitter who dared to complain about losing money on the tickets for the cancelled tour and not getting their money back.

So that's liars, cheats, fakes with no musical ability!
I hate girl bands and boy bands, they all have to be pop and incredibly cheesy. This is not counting Destiny's Child, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, etc. I'm talking about Backstreet Boys, Big Time Rush, The Wanted, Little Mix, Fifth Harmony, etc. The only boy band along the pop sidelines I like is... I'm not going to tell you, this is not about them. (They are in the Top 30 in this list, you can guess away. )

Anyways lets get to the point. Little Mix is just another band to me. I like Coldplay, Bastille, The Beatles, Green Day, Paramore, etc. My favorite band is the one I won't say. I really am not a pop fan. I hate how good artists, like Taylor Swift and Maroon 5, switch to Pop from another genre. I only like a few pop artists. Really little mix just aren't my style of music. I have nothing against them. Well besides the fact their voices sound fake, and all their songs sound the same.. And they get so much attention just because one of them is dating Zayn Malik, now every girl in my class are saying they are the best girl group. They used cute stories so people would vote for them.
They try to be the "girl versión of one direction"... If one direction sucks, they sucks more...

sam117


86Bob Marley And The Wailers
This is honestly stupid, why this is even on this list is beyond me
I'll say even though I am not a fan of Bob Marley he doesn't deserve to be on this list
I just have to find a bullet now.
[Newest]Lol... No words to say.. Now I quit... BadAss all around

87Backstreet Boys
There a boy band just like any other. There success is due to the fact. That young girls of the late 90s early 2000s found them hot cute sexy etc. There songs have on meaning no matter if their fans think they do. Unlike what the person said in the one direction one Backstreet Boys are not a real band they were created by a pedophile named Lou Pearlmen. They have no real talent either.

88Foo Fighters
Awesome band, don't suck at all!
How are Foo Fighters on here? Dave Grohl started drumming with nirvana then when kurt died, he changed to guitar and vocals and started his own band. There are so many great songs by them, Everlong, Pretender, Learn to Fly etc.
Wow. Good band. Shouldn't be here.
[Newest]Worst band ever no doubt

89Disturbed
No they're not the worst, Disturbed rocks the house. This list is so messed up with good bands and these good bands doesn't deserve to be treated this way. The only bands that will still be worst are Limp Bizkit, Good Charlotte, Fall Out Boy, Panic! At The Disco, Big Time Rush, Jonas Brothers and One Direction.
Why is Disturbed on here anyway? I'm too afraid for this to be moved up so I commented on here.

MusicalPony


90Death Cab For Cutie
Not one of the worst bands, they have quite a few good songs actually.

91OneRepublic
Whoever put OneRepublic here needs to see a psychiatrist.
Onerepublic? Seriously?!?!? They're an amazing bAND

92Radiohead
This band doesn't deserve to be in this list.

93Rage Against The Machine
How is rage on here? They have one of the greatest guitarists of all time (Tom Morello), and there is no band that can fuse metal, rap, funk as good as them. Who ever voted for rage probably listens to Nickelback.
Nothing wrong with Rage -_-
This the best rap metal group of all time! What the hell?

94Rammstein

95Suicide Silence
Why isn't this number 1, scenes worship this stupid band just because their singer died of a motorcycle accident drunk... That's pathetic
Pretty good from what I've heard.

96Black Sabbath
Who ever put these guys on the list doesn't know Heavy metal when they hear it... Either that or they're a musically illiterate 8-year-old, who is just scared by them... Black Sabbath formed the sound of heavy metal, Still just as legendary as they were 30 years ago. that's coming from someone who has been a music lover for her whole life.
They Made Metal and there AWESOME
This group is a legend
[Newest]Black Sabbath should NOT be here. Period.

97Oasis
Oasis is one of the best bands ever, I understand if people don't like them but even then you would have to be deaf to put them on this list, I feel the same way about rammstien and slipnot being on this list
Their awful people that said they make great music

98Jackson 5
This band is pretty awesome! I don't know why it is on this list!

99The Police
What nonsense is this? How can they be on this site?
How they are on here, there is no band that have the police sound
Sting, Stewart Copeland, and Andy Summers - How could this combo be bad?
[Newest]The Police are great! Why would anyone vote for them as worst?

100Smashing Pumpkins
You have never listened to 1979 and bullet with butterfly wings do ya?
Worst live band ever? You didn't see their mid 90s shows, did you? What a stupid comment... oh, and also, whoever put Smashing Pumpkins in this list deserves to be thrown into a black hole. They're one of the greatest and most musically diverse and creative 90s alternative bands EVER.
Worst live band EVER!
