The Top TenXW

1One DirectionOne Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) are an English-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records ...read more.

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...

Very overrated, just a waste of time on people's lives, no 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?

They are a disgrace to rock and roll.

3Blood On the Dance Floor

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!

Imagine if someone took Soft Cell, shoved them through a Color Run, took away their musical talent, replaced the singer's vocal cords with a 13-year-old girl's, converted them to Satanism, and gave them 30,000 estrogen pills. The result would still sound better than this band. Dahvie can't sing (and that girly rap thing is nowhere near a decent substitute), they put no innovation or creativity into their lyrics, and they can't get over the fact that people hate them. Sure, their early stuff was at least somewhat listenable, even if the lyrics made you feel a little violated. But now, and even then, they're hella awful. There's a reason why bands have to audition for record labels and have producers to make it big. This band is what happens when you somehow have enough money to escape the system and create your own. Don't try it, kids.

This is a song not a band

4NickelbackNickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

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.

Let's face it, pretty much EVERY Nickelback song is awful, but the worst one is the one where they sing about how they "wanna be a Rockstar". It literally feels like an hour has gone by after you hear it, it drags on so long.

This is bland corporate rock designed to be listened to by moronic rednecks and their wives who think dressing up to go to some cheap bar and getting drunk with this as the soundtrack is "classy".

Quite possibly the worst music Canada has EVER produced and that's saying something considering we have a lot of crap come out of this country.

This should be number one!

5Insane 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.

This Band is the worst. If I Could, I would change my username to InsaneClownPosseSucks. They're just stupid idiots who don't look anything like clowns, and believe in the stupid Dark Carnival, and spreads false religion, that obviously nobody believes this crap, and they are just fattys that smoke insane amounts of weed, and think they're clowns.

The one thing I hate about this band even more than anything else is their one song, Miracles. How is Vicious Weather a Miracle? And the infamous line of the song "F****** Magnets! How do they Work? " If They Wanted to know, they could just look it up on Google, but they said they didn't want to talk to a scientist. Google is not a Scientist, it is a Search Engine.

The Worst Band Ever, or in other words, the Worst Thing Ever. - AggressiveBlaze

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.

Their "song" Miracles is why got them my vote.

6Naked 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.

7Kidz 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

This isn't even a band, it's a group of overrated kids with terrible voices that make covers of overrated songs. Not only do they not have ANY original content, they change the lyrics to make it more clean and child-friendly, even when the lyrics don't need to be changed at all. These spoiled rich kids get money for singing with a mediocre voice. I can sing a cover for an overrated song, where's my money? This band is here so overprotective parents can have their 5 year old child listen to popular music without hearing anything bad, when really NOTHING IS BAD IN THE SONG WHATSOEVER! Does anyone else agree with me?

Who thought this was even a good idea?

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.

The show was like the jonas brothers had a baby with pewdiepie.

9Brokencyde

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.

Before voting for the mediocre at best One Direction, look up this band and listen to a few of their songs. Brokencyde makes one direction seem like the Beatles and one direction is a bad band. Imagine taking a one direction song, adding in some terrible screaming and rapping, way more autotune, mediocre electronics, and juvenile lyrics about sex and partying such as "you make my pee pee hard". That's what every brokencyde song is like. Believe it or not, there are bands like brokencyde that make music this bad (crunkcore). I really think dot dot curve and broken dye should be in the top ten. The only people that like this type of music are annoying "scene kidz" that ruin their hair with random colors and can often be really ignorant. For most of the fans of this "band", if you don't like brokencyde or think they suck with valid reasons backing your opinion, they will just throw swear words at you without thinking of proper grammar, vocabulary, spelling or valid reasoning. It is clear ...more

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.

This truly deserves the title of the worst band ever.

10CreedCreed is an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consists of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

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

The musicians are talented (especially the guitarist), but their singer is flat broke and hopeless.

The problem with Creed is that, while their drummer, guitarist, and bassist are great at their jobs (listen to My Sacrifice for proof), Scott Stapp is too whiny and pretentious. If anyone replaced Scott Stapp, it would be a better band.
Also, irrelevant: How the hell is Led Zeppelin on this list?

They suck so badly. - RalphBob

The Contenders

11LMFAOLMFAO was an American hip hop-electronic dance music duo consisting of uncle and nephew Redfoo and SkyBlu.

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.

I actually like their music, it's a lot better than nowadays wannabe black's like drake

12R5

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.

They're amazing. people say they can't play instruments but other bands just dance and sing. If you really took the time to learn more about the band and get to know them you would see that they write pretty much all of their songs, they actually can sing and dance. they're really sweet, funny, and talented. you can't judge them because they're a "Disney band." sure ross acted on there, but that does not mean they're a Disney band. they work really hard to make fans happy, to make concerts exciting, and to let people have an amazing day. I have met them 4 times and every single time was amazing. they put on a good show and it is worth it. none of the people being negative have actually payed attention to them. so listen to their songs again, watch interviews/meet and greet videos, concert videos and anything else. you honestly will love them.

I bet that 90% of their fans are 10 year olds, and the other 10% is perverted old guys who jack off to them.

13Black 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"

Guys. BVB does NOT promote cutting. In fact, Ashley Purdy has said many anti suicidal quotes, such as " Suicide is not cowardly. I'll tell you what's cowardly, treating people so badly that they want to die.". Sure, the fans are annoying, but tell me how The Wanted are less hated than BVB. The band doesn't go around telling their fans to tell everyone about their lifesaving experience with them, they do it on their own, so that is hereby not BvB's fault. I'm not trying to be a troll or anything, I just don't get how you blame the fans actions on the band. Some of the fans are immature young girls, and they do that.

I really like this band's style of music and the lyrics have obviously had thought put into them. The fans aren't that much of a problem to me. After all, the band has been quoted saying anti suicide things and reassuring the depressed audience.

I hate this band because of their 13 year-old fanbase, who are acting like they're all emo and stuff and wearing black but are just loser wannabe's!

14Anal 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.

This band was never meant to be taken seriously. They're all just a bunch of trolls who intentionally sound like garbage just to piss people off.

If they're intentionally bad they shouldn't be here. Duh.

16Girls' 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

Some of their music is alright, not one for kpop, but it's not too bad. And I don't know about the lyrics because I don't speak Korean & don't feel like looking up the English version

They're awesome! Haters gonna hate

17Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland.

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

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. -_-

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".

They weren't bad... They're second and third albums were actually really good! I liked half of Results May Vary, and after that it was like a kid sorting out though his vegetables. Only certain ones that I liked... Still, doesn't mean they're not bad

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 ...more

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.

Whoever thinks that Green Day is one of the top twenty worst bands obviously doesn't understand true alternative rock.

19The WantedThe Wanted are a British-Irish boy band consisting of members Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes.

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.

This band has songs that I've heard on the radio before, but they have like no fan base and it seems as though no one really cares about them. Also, walks like Rihanna is a really stupid song. They are much worse than black veil brides and might be as bad as one direction.

They can't even sing their song are good but they just shouldn't sing them they should be number 1 on the list.

20Maroon 5Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

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.

I loved this band. I really did. Their songs brought back so many memories of my childhood and it was just so unbearable to see them become. I loved, and still do love songs like Makes Me Wonder, She Will Be Loved, Harder to Breathe, I Won't Go Home Without You, Wake Up Call, and of course, the first Maroon 5 song I've ever heard, Sunday Morning. I even liked a couple of songs off of Hands All Over like I'm Never Gonna Leave This Bed and Give a Little More. Misery was alright but was a really poppy. Then Moves Like Jagger came out. It was a good song from the beginning but it was so damn overplayed to the point where it annoyed the hell outta me. Then came Overexposed. This album SUCKS! Starting with this album, they were less of a "band" and more of a tool for Adam Levine's "solo" career. They were the biggest sellout for me because they were so good but then became. Then came V. It had some of the most unbearable songs like Maps, Sugar, This Summer's gonna Hurt, ...more

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

I really don't like Maps either. I'd rather listen to Alter Bridge than this song. - airl67

I don't hate them, but all their new songs sound the same and Animals has such sexist lyrics.
