Worst Rock Bands of All Time

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Big Time Rush

Big Time Rush suck. Their music is just bubblegum auto tuned pop rubbish. All they do is whinge about relationships and breakups. They are about as entertaining as Gary Glitter and David Icke trying to kidnap little kids and take them up to Neverland. They have their own T.V. show and they are only around for money. They only want to sleep with as many girls as possible. They have brainwashed my sister and brother. Let me tell you what true music is: Pink Floyd, Rush, Nirvana, Queen, AC DC, Genesis, Deep Purple, Coldplay, Muse, Green Day, Linkin Park, Motörhead, The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin and Metallica. Your BTR will fade away in time just like One Direction.

What? They aren't even a rock band!

I absolutely hate big time rush. They are just some manufactured fake boy band. Come on they came from a T.V. show. They're just so... FAKE! - SammySpore

Never heard of em.

42Falling In ReverseFalling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.

Don't kid yourselves, guys. I will gladly pay anyone who can explain to me why they are a good band because what I what I have heard from them makes me think a caveman with two sticks has more musical talent. - Duality

The Rock and metal industry has been unbelievably overstuffed with emo garbagecore like this. Where is escape the fate on here? Every time I talk to somebody and they say "I like metal, like Black Veil Brides" it makes me nauseous. And Why is Pink Floyd on here!?!?

Most retard ass singer I've ever seen on the planet earth.

Not bad but not good

Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury ...read more.

What the hell? They're LEGENDS of music, darlings

If you think The Rolling Stones/ Queen deserve to be on the list, you are deaf or listening to the wrong bands. End of story.

They are very good, but pretty overrated. I mean, I love their albums like Queen II, A Night at the Opera and Innuendo, but some of their "popular" songs are pop-like and basic, for example We Will Rock You. Very overrated, especially topping Pink Floyd in best Classic Rock bands. They can't even be compared, Pink Floyd is a million times better than Queen. - patrickfloyd

They're one of the bands that define music. - Tristan1975R5

Who ever even thought about putting patd on the list has problems

PANIC! AT THE DISCO IS THE BEST BAND EVER! I love them

Good band, but pretty overrated.

Overrated and their fans are idiots

45Marilyn MansonMarilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Formed in 1989 by frontman Marilyn Manson and Daisy Berkowitz, the group was originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids with their theatrical performances gathering a local cult following in the early 1990s.

What is this doing here? If you don't like them just don't listen to them... So simple

I think his gothic image and style of singing are both stupid. But on the other hand, he's a really nice and really intelligent guy who knows how the world works, and he's got some really smart lyrics and themes in his albums (my personal favorite albums are Holy Wood and Antichrist Superstar. Give them a listen if you haven't).

You people should just give him a break for once. He's a normal guy who's trying to show the problems with modern America and religion. I know he's not for everyone but he's way better than what you give him credit for.

Marilyn Manson is so irrelevant that even Christians don't care about him anymore.

46Kings of Leon

The most overrated rock band of the last decade and one of the most overrated in history. "Sex on Fire", is a terrible song that never stopped getting played on radio or T.V.. "Only by the night", is a terrible album which someone added to my ipod. Worse still is that every non-rock fan adopts this band and pretends they like or have knowledge of rock music. People and the media only jump on their bandwagon because they are the only new rock band in recent years that have actually sold records in charts that are clogged with euro dance and hip hop fodder. I can think of 15-20 bands that are better than Kings of Leon that should be getting their acclaim. Kings of Leon aren't fit to carry their amplifiers.

This one is almost the only one that should actually be here. People were trded tbh to vote for metallica... Pff, st. anger death magnetic reload and load sucks but the stupid people don't see tht. - freezerman75

They are just AWFUL. This is by far the worst band on this list. Number 29? More like number 1. Worse than Bon Jovi, A7x, AC/DC, Guns N' Roses, etc.? I think not.

This band really sucks

The Gorillaz aren't even a rock band... What?

Why are they on this list? There awesome

Gorillaz is so original and they are awesome and they aren't rock, maybe feel good in is kinda rock and with rap but I wouldn't consider them as rock

There awesome, best band ever, besides the Beatles and Linkin Park. and I'm 11

You're not special for being 11 and listening to those bands. Sorry. - Duality

50Avenged SevenfoldAvenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal/metalcore (early) band, that was formed 1999 in California . Their longest lineup of members was M . Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums) . ...read more.

They have been my favorite band for ten years. This is literally the most irrelevant list I have ever seen. They made up there stage names when they were still in school of course they are going to sound dumb lol. You can not doubt they are amazing musicians. While M Shadows voice isn't for everyone I understand that but many people including myself love it and they are going to keep making music and touring because the fans highly out number the haters

All of you are idiots to the max. Avenged Sevenfold is one of the best rock bands today. All of you hating obviously don't know music. And how can you even say that they don't have talent? I'd like to hear you sing the way M. Shadows does with all of his vocal ranges, or play guitar the way Syn does...idiots, man.

The fans of this band will try to force their opinions onto you that they are the best band of all time. The Rev is not the greatest drummer, he used double bass.M. shadows voice is irritating beyond belief, Synyster Gates puts no emotion into his guitar playing, and the band members are unbelievably emo people who try to come across as metal, yet fail miserably at it. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

What? Worst band ever? This guys invented METAL ROCK! And they're the only good metal band that is not satanist! Black Sabbath is obviously illuminati's band.

Who the hell put ac dc on this list? - Elwood

What? This band is the worst? Try BEST. They have timeless classics like Back In Black (never gets old), Highway to Hell, Thunderstruck, and countless more. Jesus, people you guy suck at musical/band analysis.

Black sabbath isn't satanist. Ozzy is a christian

Worst bridge ever in the song "Loser" pointless, doesn't match up with the rest of the music.. Dumbass guitarist just wanted to go off with lame ass solo

54Cattle DecapitationCattle Decapitation is an American Deathgrind band from San Diego, California formed in 1996. Cattle Decapitation's songs protest the mistreatment and consumption of animals, the abuse of the environment and touch subjects such as misanthropy and genocide of the human race. Much of their music is based ...read more.

Their song names are just plain retarded. "Open Human Head Experiments With Bleach, Lacquer and Epoxy", "Colonic Villus Biopsy Performed on the Gastro-intestinally Incapable", "Of Human Pride and Flatulence", "A Living, Breathing Piece of Defecating Meat".

Once again, it's death metal, so I hate it.

Why is this grouped with rock? I really don't think it should. Also, a great band.

They suck so bad

55Disturbed Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois. The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren.

Why is Disturbed on here? They are awesome.

Dude saying it sucks doesn't make it true

They are an excellent band so whoever said it should keep their opinion in their head. - jbsucks11

Trashy rap-rage rock and horrible covers of 80's and 60's songs. The dudes voice is just awful.

I like death metal, but for some reason I disliked this band instantly. They seem trying too hard to shock, and I wish the vocals were slightly clearer.

I mean look at some of their song titles. This band tries to hard to be shocking and doesn't try hard enough to make music that you can actually listen to when you're NOT on a murder spree. - Duality

The most overrated metal band ever, I thought metal was about deep, meaningful topics, not gore and torture.

Metal band. Not rock. To metal for rock. - Music_Lover123

Great band. They've brought back what made Motown great, before Michael Jackson's '80s dance noise ruined it. Listen to an old classic like "Still Water" by the Four Tops if you wonder where their sound came from.

I hate this... They change their mind on everything! Why are The Rolling Stones at 24 and this website thought they were 4 or 5 on top 10 rock bands..

This isn't a bad list, this band is mediocre

Worse than hello kitty suicide club? What

58Neon TreesNeon Trees is an American rock band from Provo, Utah. Known for their energetic live performances, the band received nationwide exposure in late 2008 when they opened several North American tour dates for the band The Killers.

Horrible singer. Songs don't make sense. Example :everybody talks. This band hates talking! But they're doing it. what?

Rock? Sounds more like bubblegum power pop to me. And their music all sounds the same.

Not sure neon trees can be qualified as a rock band

Generic "power pop" band.

These guys are terrible. They leader singers voice sucks my will to live. Sounds like a bitch instead of a man

I'm sorry, but I just can't stand this band.

Really really REALLY bad!

603 Days Grace

The person who made this list is an idiot. I-D-I-O-T! Bands like Guns N Roses, Nirvana, Black Sabbath, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, The Devil Wears Prada, Green Day, should not be even close to this list. And that's not all, I could go on. But you've gone too far when you've put the rock band of the century THREE DAYS GRACE on here! It's bloody Three Days Grace for crying out loud! Whoever made this list, and the people who contributed, should be ashamed of themselves. - Alpha101

Okay guys, its THREE DAYS GRACE not 3 days grace - VanZeppelin

They are not worse than Quiet Riot. Whoever made this list can suck me.

They stink I hate them
