Wow... What a stupid list. Yes, I agree with Lady Gaga, Adam Lambert, and Rebecca Black (i don't know who Aaron Carter is). But why hate on some of the best rap out there? Taylor Swift is not bad. I don't like her stuff but it's not close to the level of crap that is pop. I don't even understand how you can hate on Lamb of god or Slayer. Slayer is legend and Lamb of god is legit. Please re-do this list.

I agree with this list somewhat but what is Taylor Swift doing here and on the 5th position. She is a good singer. So whoever made this list can please re do it.

He is very naive and rude. He went to the Philippines where he became irrational and impolite.

I HATE Justin Bieber

Why are Paramore on the list? They actualy play instruments and Hayley has a great voice. Nicki Minaj has none of that, relies on auto-tune, dreadful lyrics and is just completely unappealing.

I guess if you have no talent, put the booty on display. Unbelievable young people today listen to this crap.

Why is this thing a singer to begin with...

3Miley Cyrus

Who really wants to hear about someone being a fly on the wall?
She should have stuck to acting, since she is a drama queen.

Don't like her at all, and hate everyone else in this list but can I ask why's Taylor Swift here? She's beautiful and talented and amazing. She shouldn't be here.

11Taylor SwiftTaylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching a documentary about Faith Hill, Swift felt that she should go to Nashville to begin ...read more.

I proudly support Taylor Swift being on here 100%. I hate when she breaks up with a guy writes a song all about him (when it was probably her who broke up with him) and makes millions, and I really hate how everyone says she innocent because last time I checked 16 guys I think in about 3 years, yup she must be innocent. Sorry for the rant buts it's true.

What's wrong with that? So what, she dates a lot of guys and breaks up with them. No one is suppose to be good at dating. And she does write about things besides her ex's. So what if she does make money for writing songs, that's what an artist does and it just turns out that she appeals to a lot of people. - DarkInk

What is Hollywood Undead so high up on this list?!? Taylor Swift sings so out of tune and the only reason people don't realize that is because they edit her voice. She is so fake and untalented.

Why is Adam Lambert, Slayer and Gaga categorized with this piece of robot music

Why are they not at the top of this list?

I remember Kanye said to an interviewer "all I do is make real music". Yeah right. Another over rated creep with zero talent and a big mouth.

15Rebecca BlackRebecca Black is "well known" for her "hit" single, "Friday", which has the second most dislikes on YouTube .

Rebecca black sucks so much that she shouldn't be in this list... She's not a singer... Where is Jenna Rose? But still I hate Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus and Adam Lambert and Lady Gaga. I think Taylor Swift has a good voice...

Like, I hate Friday. But one direction is worse. - AnonymousChick

What the hell is Taylor Swift doing here? She's one of the hopes to save this this generation...
