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]They r the best band ever and they r not only famous because of their looks its not like I but all they're albums to list to their face yeah they r cute but they can sing really well seriously
Are you two years old? The Beatles, Queen, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Anthrax, Slayer, The Who, ETC. Are better than the crap you call 1Direction. They use Autotune and can't sing about anything else except love.

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.

3Blood 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]Why I hate them?

They wrote a song called "$ex" (its intro pisses me off)

4Nickelback
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]These guys are stupid because They are trying to release something good from something that outstayed it's welcome at the 70's.

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.
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]They became famous just because they diss everybody. They also claim they are from Detroit when they don't live there.

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.
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]It like naming your band after a magazine about girls.

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

Really? Rammstein is worse than Kidz Bop?
Sigh
No worries rammstein is lower I think, so no longer a concern for you
[Newest]They are ruined the legendary song "Bring Me To Life"

8Big 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]They're not active anymore, but every once in a while a fan of theirs will say "They're coming back." Gosh, I hope not!

9LMFAO
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]They are only famous for Party rock and Sexy and I know it

10R5
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]They are not the 10 worst band

The Contenders

11Brokencyde
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.
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]The lyrics of this band's songs are complete trash. They have no meaning whatsoever and only appeals to musically oblivious 13 year old scene kids.

12Black 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.
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
[Newest]What idiot put this on here?

13Tokio 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"
This band sucks! And what the hell is Metallica, Slipknot, Nirvana and Linkin Park doing here. After T.H. U2 and Queen are the worst

Slashhead


14Limp 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
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".
[Newest]My favorite rock band, just you are hate Durst.

15Creed
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.
[Newest]The musicians are talented (especially the guitarist), but their singer is flat broke and hopeless.

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

This should be 4th in the list.
[Newest]SNSD isn't my style. They're pretty overrated to be honest.

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]If I see one more I like I'm going to scream

18Maroon 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 like this band, but they were awesome and now they are worse. Shouldn't be this high on the list.

19The 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]The worst part about Black Eyed Peas is that they have the songs that I used to love when I was a kid.

20Green 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]This is the best band ever! Whoever hates Green Day is just a One direction fan girl.
