21 The Black Eyed Peas The Black Eyed Peas The Black Eyed Peas is an American hip hop group, consisting of rappers will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and singer Fergie.

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.

They only talk about partying and they died out quickly

22 Attila Attila Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book.

Attila is a generic copy of every thrash metal band ever. Their lyrics suck too.

They're a wannabe Limp Bizkit with a hint of Asking Alexandria and lyrics so bad that they can rival the lyrics of Blood On The Dance Floor.

They are like if My Chemical Romance had a baby with Metallica but the baby was extremely deformed

Wasn't the lead singer on a Sleeping with Sirens track? I don't know. All that I know is *YAWN*.

23 U2 U2 U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton, and Larry Mullen Jr. U2's early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's musical pursuits, they have ...read more.

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.

U2 are an amazing band who created spectacular albums such as Achtung Baby and The Joshua Tree. They have done way better in this world than all those who hate them. Anyway, the people who hate them probably are deaf and stupid or like crap like Selena Gomez and The Scene.

U2 is bad music, but they are good people and have some type of talent. Not the worst, but mediocre at best.

24 3OH!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.

Seriously, 36? This should be number 8

25 Selena 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.

I don't have to mention why her music is terrible. Disney pop stars are all terrible by default. She's not talented. At all. Case closed.

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

Metallica is a great band. They have made great albums like ride the lightning and master of puppets for example. One thing that I would like to point out is that Metallica did not sell out. Just because a band changes their sound does not mean that they sold out. Sometimes as bands get older, they mature and make music that is not as hard as the previous stuff. Also, many bands will experiment with different sounds, which may result in a more radio-friendly sound; many bands do it not so it will appeal to more people, but so it has the potential to sound better. Just because deftones released the album white pony, which was much easier to listen to and softer than their previous album does it mean they sold out? No, they were just trying new things, which is exactly what Metallica did with the black album. Also, the black album was still a hard rock album, Metallica did not start making pop rock/pop music/glam metal, so they didn't sell out. Also, the black album is not a bad album ...more

Best metal band ever- people are completely insane for voting them worst band!

Metallica is the best metal band out there!

This was a great band, but then they became crappy nu metal like korn and stuff. But hardwired (the newest album) is great. Nowhere near the worst.

27 Guns N Roses Guns N Roses Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1985. The classic lineup, as signed to Geffen Records in 1986, consisted of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. Apart from hard rock they are also ...read more.

The original Guns N Roses was great, but now the only one left from the original line-up is Axl. Shudders

Classic case of band (or performer in general) using "edgy" attitude to distract from lack of even the most rudimentary musical talent. all they ever did was act macho in the fact of the comparatively friendly "hair metal" scene. honestly, to call Axl Rose a bastard would be an insult to the bastards.

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

A few of their songs make me laugh. They actually have talent, but their music isn't something I enjoy. They're classic hard rock. Can't get any more explanatory than that.

28 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer are an Australian pop-rock band from Sydney that formed in 2011. The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on the Take ...read more.

I find it annoying that some people who listen to 5sos think they are so "punk rock" for listening to this band. Some of the fans claim that it is just a joke between them to call them punk, but many of the fans legitimately think they are punk pop or punk rock. Just because 5sos plays instruments and one has a piercing and another colored hair, doesn't mean they are punk. They are basically your average boy band with instruments. They are power pop, not rock. Punk is the clash, sex pistols, bad religion etc., not 5 seconds. Like I said before, this band is just a boy band with instruments, so they are not a good band at all.

STOP THEY don't EVEN KNOW WHAT PUNK IS, I just feel like they're posers. Like they're different than any other boy band that only appeals to thirsty teenage girls & is famous for no reason. All it does is make those girls define themselves as punk also. Stop. Just because you listen to all 5sos songs and one Green Day song and wear a nirvana shirt when you know one song of theirs at the most... You're NOT PUNK you're FAKE JUST LIKE THE BAND (sorry rant over.

I'm not punk, I hate 5SOS, I like a few songs of Green Day and I like 2 songs of Nirvana. Don't worry, I'm not punk and I'm especially not a punk impostor. I'd rather be nerd than punk. - airl67

WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE MY HATRED TO THIS BAND! Anyway, not only are they homophobic, transphobic, and sexist idiots who think the work revolves around them, they make completely unoriginal content that rip off other bands like FOB, Duran Duran, and My Chemical Romance! It's also super annoying that they decide to add and electric guitar and some drums and all of a sudden they're "punk-rock"! I think this band is about as "punk-rock" as the pop tart I ate this morning. It's also super annoying that people think their "edgy" and listen to this! And also the thing that REALLY pisses me off is that FALL OUT BOY, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, AND BLACK VEIL BRIDES ARE CONSIDERED WORSE THAN THIS "BAND". Ok, now that I'm done ranting, why are you still reading this?

All these guys are is lame. Their bad borderline emo music is a bore. Take One Direction, make them sing in Australian accents, remove the preppy image, make them dress like they own Hot Topic, give a few of the members weird hair colours and stupid piercings, (tattoos for extra brownie points), get them to listen to bad Pop punk that was popular with the emo kids circa 2007, and BAM! You have 5 Seconds of Summer. Their music is bad Pop rock. They sing about the same things One Direction sung about, only they have the balls to actually make sexual references or say something that's actually sexual blatantly, instead of sugar-coating it. Ahem, "Rock Me". They probably swear more than One Direction did in their songs, In fact, I don't think One Direction ever did. Censoring in Midnight Memories doesn't count 1D. They're at best a generic All Time Low meets One Direction for teenagers. Pass.

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

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

Fall out boy are amazing! Why is this on here

I only like the song thanks for the memories

Mediocre at best, but not the worst music ever.

30 JLS

I can't believe I actually liked them, their music was just awful. I guess that now that I'm older and wiser, it seems that I now realise how terrible they actually were. In fact, out of all their songs, She makes me wanna is the WORST song I've ever listened to by them. It's nothing special - just cheesy, teen-pop bullcrap. I'm betting that in 2-5 years time, they'll just fade away into obscurity and be forgotten about by everyone who liked them, and all their members who'll have solo careers will flop after just one crap song and an album that will never get released, and no-one will even remember their names.

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. - PositronWildhawk

Do they have any music, I just keep seeing these ridiculous initials what does it mean

31 Fun. Fun. Fun is an American indie pop band based in New York City. It was formed by Nate Ruess, former lead singer of The Format, with Andrew Dost of Anathallo and Jack Antonoff of Steel Train.

Stupid hipster garbage. This band is the epitome of hipster bull. They only got popular because of Glee, and all of their songs pretty much sound the same. Some Nights put me to sleep with that horrible marching band beat. We Are Young... It's a song about a guy who's ABUSIVE. He admitted to hitting his lover "that was waiting across the bar". I would rather listen to the sounds of animals mating. Screw these hipster bastards.

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 and one song I forgot the name of are decent, the rest is shut though.

32 'N Sync

NSYNC was good. Along with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, this is a very rare GOOD boy band. - PizzaGuy

One of the very few boy bands I could stand. If if weren't for them, we wouldn't have Justin Timberlake

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.

Worst band ever, deserves to be in this list - nikhilpratapsingh

33 Goo Goo Dolls Goo Goo Dolls The Goo Goo Dolls are an American rock band formed in 1986 in Buffalo, New York, by vocalist and guitarist John Rzeznik, vocalist and bassist Robby Takac, and drummer George Tutuska.

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?

Why are they on here? They are so good! Whoever put them on here needs to let em punch them

Iris is one of the most amazing songs of all time!

34 The 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.

35 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

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?

Then you must have a bad taste in hearing. My Chemical Romance is a band that actually worked hard and did things right. You could tell they weren't some stupid boy band. No, they were rock. And their songs made me have faith in music today, and now they inspire newer rock bands that are great like All Time Low. So overall, My Chemical Romance is amazing and your argument is invalid. - MontyPython

Actually a pretty good band. Probably the best band of the 2000's since the white stripes and smash mouth.

Nirvana should not be on this list. They are amazing. People think they were overrated because they know one song. Kurt, Dave and Krist are legends.

The only reason I still have some amount of faith in Humanity is because One Direction tops the list.

Are you kidding me? This band is great! They are one of the Greatest bands ever!

What is wrong with this generation?
They will never know what Nirvana is..

Worst band out there along with Guns N Roses and all the emo crap. - BrianScott01

37 Backstreet Boys Backstreet 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.

Nope not good it's a good thing they are on this list.

Tell me why they are nothing but a mistake. Tell me why. They have no talent, and they're boring. Tell me why. Oh that's right. Because they'e a boy-band. Next!

38 ABBA ABBA ABBA were a Swedish pop group formed in Stockholm in 1972 by members Agnetha Fältskog, Björn Ulvaeus, Benny Andersson, and Anni-Frid Lyngstad.

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!

Why is Abba on this list! I'm just shocked! They are my favourite music group! They always worked hard and they were either in their studio or performing. They never gave up and were proud to work together! Seriously, they don't deserve a place on this list at all and most of their songs don't suck!

I'm not worried. This band was meant to be terrible.

39 Butthole Surfers Butthole Surfers Butthole Surfers is an American rock band formed by Gibby Haynes and Paul Leary in San Antonio, Texas in 1981.

I am not a fan of this band's music, but I will say that they are a pretty good band. Before you vote for this band because of their name, listen to a few of their songs.

One of the most respected punk rock bands of all time, everyone who voted hasn't listened to them.

I have no clue what this band is, but judging by the name, it's definitely not good! Like, who was the idiot that said "Hey I got a perfect idea for our band name! Let's name it Butthole Surfers! Like seriously?

What!? This is a great band! don't judge a book by it's cover; listen to their song "pepper" and you'll understand why they shouldn't be on this list.

40 Bastille Bastille Bastille are an English indie pop band formed in 2010. The group began as a solo project by singer Dan Smith, who later decided to form a band. Beside Smith, the four-piece consists of Chris Wood, Will Farquarson, and Kyle Simmons.

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.

Ugh, I hate when people judge a band by their one hit. "Coldplay is bad because I don't like Sky Full of Stars." "Queen is bad because I don't like We Will Rock You." I completely agree, don't hate until you know something about what you're hating. - pandagirl

Bastille is a really good band! Why I wrong with you people! Pompeii got overplayed I will say that but other than that they have awesome music! They have amazing lyrics, cool music, and their lead singer has a really good voice!

Bastille is actually really good!

Hipster garbage. It's like Fun. but instead of taking more of a 'rock' approach, they take a pop approach. Their songs are slow, boring, and mind-numbing. I would rather play Russian Roulette with a crazy person than listen to this hipster crap.
