Top Ten Things That Should Happen to Music In 2021


The Top Ten

1 Lana Del Rey releases happy and fun music for once

Only problem is that Lana Del Ray hasn't been relevant since 2014. Lol - 3DG20

I don't know if her happy and fun music would be good as her typical sad music. All I know is that it would be different - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

She always dope and sad. Release something exciting. - JaysTop10List

How can we decide what will happen in 2021? - Turkeyasylum

2 One Direction and their fans could go away

They already did years ago. It's just you guys who keep trying to bring them back into relevance. - 3DG20

One Direction has died down in popularity for the most part. Now we have Five Seconds Of Summer which is basically One Direction 2.0 except not nearly as bad. - RiverClanRocks

One Direction will hopefully be going one direction, gone.

Perfect option! I do like the idea! - Fan_of_Good_Music

3 Gorillaz releases their 3rd album

They're releasing their 6th in 2016 - JaysTop10List

4 Beyonce releases all of her unreleased albums

Nah, I'd prefer it if she retired. - 3DG20

I don't know either - FerrariDude64

5 Queen returns with an new album

Imagine if Freddie Mercury rose from the dead. - ethanmeinster

This would be amazing. - Alpha101

Somebody go dig up Freddie's grave. If not, lets pray his ghost reunites with Queen. - Catacorn

A lot of metal or rock members are dead.. Unless they can get new members that are just as good ( probobly not) - FerrariDude64

6 The Beatles also return

Bit hard, two of their members are dead.

I'm praying that this would happen. John rises from the dead and everything. Lol. - Alpha101

If they somehow could how amazing that would be!

Two members can't continue a band? - FerrariDude64

7 Nicki Minaj stops rapping and releases decent music

To be honest, it still wouldn't be that good. Even her somewhat decent stuff is somewhat decent at the very best. - 3DG20

She is actually pretty good at singing, I don't see her rapping and she has terrible song lyrics, if anyone tries, they can make a good song good. - keycha1n

Honestly, she'd be better off as a singer than as a rapper.

Nicki is a pretty good rapper. Just needs less autotune and have better lyrics. - ToptenPizza

8 Eminem collaborates with Spongebob on a Spongebob soundtrack

That would be funny because there was an idea like that on "Top Ten Episodes That Should Be Created In Season 10 Of SpongeBob SquarePants - PatrickStar

That would be pretty funny, id buy it :3 - MattDeBat

That wouldn't be so bad.

That reminds me, Eminem turtle-shaped

9 Lady GaGa will change her robotic voice

Or just, you know, retired. - 3DG20

You know her autotune that makes her voice robotic? - JaysTop10List

10 Miley Cryus stops being mental

Miley Cryus or Miley Cyrus? Assuming you mean Miley Cyrus, I'd honestly prefer it if she just retired as a whole. - 3DG20

She needs to stop being mental in a bad way.

The Newcomers

? Three Days Grace releases their 7th debut album

The Contenders

11 Kate Bush releases three more albums
12 Less songs about partying, sex, butts, and drugs get played on the radio

It should, but music is only going to get more and more lazily written. - 3DG20

What about gearing away from All About That Bass?

Noo Please stop making this type of trash songs, everybody starts more making real life issues and love songs as decent songs. Arguably best idea

Everything when it comes to music is okay in moderation, but right now, basically almost every song you hear on contemporary pop radio is about love, partying, sex, butts, or drugs. There should be more pop songs about real issues, like the government, the environment, poverty, etc., while still having some love songs. Agree with this one. - allamassal

13 Eminem makes MMLP3

It would be AWESOME! - DK

This isn't happening unfortunately. In Bad Guy, he said this:

"So one last time, I’m back/Before it fades into black and it’s all over/Behold the final chapter in the saga/Trying to recapture that lightning trapped in a bottle/Twice, the magic that started it all/Tragic portrait of an artist tortured/Trapped in his own drawings/Tap into thoughts/Blacker and darker than anything imaginable/Here goes a wild stab in the dark/As we pick up where the last Mathers’ left off"

What this means is that after MMLP2, it's over. He will continue releasing albums, but the Marshall Mathers saga is done. There's no way he will be able to bring the spark back in the way he did twice before. - WonkeyDude98

14 Justin Bieber kills himself

I genuinely feel sorry for those who are still going to care about Justin Bieber in 2021. - 3DG20

You are really nasty to a person you don't even know.
1. Kills himself.
2. A disgrace to other singers who died at the age of 27.
3. Other singers who died at that age are coincidences.

1994 + 27 = 2021

Bad idea, even though I still kinda dislike Bieber - BorisRule

At the age of 27?! That's a disgrace to all the great musicians that died at that age!

15 Metal music becomes popular again

That's a good thing! - Userguy44

Hell yeah, that would be awesome! Don't get me wrong people, I appreciate all sorts of music, but Metal is WAY too low, it needs to get to a better spot. The most common reason I think for Metal music being this low is because of peoples' different interpretation of how things are and what they mean, especially being called satanic music. But, enough talking... Metal becoming popular again would be amazing, imagine people banging to some Iron Maiden again! M/ METAL m/ (With respect for other music too. )

At least in the 80s Metal actually got played on the radio and now it dosen't EVER

16 Jackie Evancho and Victoria Justice get more fame

No. - 3DG20

I think Jackie deserve but Victoria maybe can't because she don't make any album. - BeaM456

They deserve it.

17 Miley Cyrus goes back to her original clean music

Or if she just made music that was actually good. - 3DG20

I loved her music! It was so uplifting and kind! Now she just acts like trash. :(

18 Rap is outlawed

Some rap can be good though, so I don't really think it should be outlawed. - allamassal

Rap wouldn't be so bad if we had guys like Young thug and Iggy to keep it in the gutter, and it doesn't help that Tupac's dead

The world of music and the world itself will be a better place!

Rap is outlawed? Didn't they try that before? - WonkeyDude98

19 Avril Lavigne writes more songs

I love Avril's music. I hope she gets better, and makes more songs. - Catacorn

She has Lyme Disease at the moment, so I don't think she can make more until she cures off it. - Swellow

She retires and posers can stop being considered role models to young girls - 3DG20

20 Original Guns N' Roses returns

No. - DarkBoi-X

This would be amazing! - Alpha101

Oh yeah please. Imagine?!

Then tell Axl Rose to stop being a douchebag!

21 Taylor swift shuts up about her crappy ex boyfriend songs

That happened

She's only had 6 songs about breakups. SIX. - WonkeyDude98

Even better, she tells her sellout ways to go f--- off by releasing 1990.

22 Muse gets more fame

I don't know if Simulation Theory is good enough. - Userguy44

23 Taylor Swift retires

Good so Cats 2 can get cancelled.

That would be pretty good! - Fan_of_Good_Music

This would be awesome.

No she cannot retires. - BeaM456

24 Justin Bieber realizes his mistakes and apologizes for everything he's done

Sad how people are still expecting that from someone like him. No offense, but that's kind of on you at this point. - 3DG20

This would be amazing, but nearly impossible, almost-blonde, and he's a jerk. - funnyuser

25 X-Factor gets axed
26 More genres of music get played on the radio besides Pop, Rap, and Country

Where I live the only thing that's played on the radio is country and pop, and it's really annoying. It would be nice if other genres would be played on the radio. - Imreallyboredrightnow

Rock and Metal are on most of the time, what are you talking about? Rap is only on one station and that's 100.7 - FerrariDude64

Please, can you spare us one track we haven't heard a million times already? - PositronWildhawk

27 Rock and Metal become the dominant music on the radio!

I would definitely say:"Great! " People can't bear to hear Justin Bieber songs such as "Sorry", "Baby", "Boyfriend", or "One Time". What's the point? I'd rather hear Pink Floyd or Guns n Roses if they came back to dominate the media.

Just not Nickelback or some other crap

Please don't tell me that One Direction is a rock band.

28 Taylor swift would write Miley Cyrus's songs

At least Taylor has better lyrics than Miley

It would be amazing

29 Michael Jackson comes back to life

Don't get me wrong. I am a sane MJ fan. I also want this to happen, but unfortunately, it will never happen. - BorisRule

That won't happen in this world.I don't care if you want to thumbs down about this comment. - BeaM456

30 Iggy Azalea Retires

2 years and 4 months to go and she's already basically faded into irrelevance. - allamassal

If she's still relevant in 2021, SHE NEEDS TO RETIRE

31 Rebecca Black Gets A New Career Rebecca Black Gets A New Career Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her single "Friday," which was once the most disliked video on YouTube. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

Can't you forgive her for making Friday? Her other songs are now decent enough!

Start a new life.. - FerrariDude64

Can't we all just put Friday in the past for Pete's sake? - WonkeyDude98

Put Friday in the past, she's gotten better at singing. And lastly, she's 18 now and she has her own YT channel. - Swellow

32 AC/DC Comes Out With a New Album

I don't want this to happen without the other classic members. Without them, it would just be a tribute band with Angus in it. - Gg2000

33 Rock will return as the dominant genre of music

I hope a band will do that in the long term and not short term like Linkin Park.

Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

Right now I think it's rock and pop - FerrariDude64

34 Public Enemy makes It Still Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back
35 Your Favorite Martian Returns

No. No, no, NO. No more Ray William Johnson please!

36 The whole rumor of Rock and Metal being the devil's music finally dies off

Whoever still thinks rock is the devil's music hasn't heard 6ix9ine. If anything, that's the devil's music. - allamassal

Yeah! Who made that stupid idea anyways?

37 Chris Brown retires
38 Meghan Trainor loses weight

No. This is just body shaming. Anyone can be any weight, and still be a good singer.
- TheDuttyGyal

39 Bruce Springsteen stops making music

That would suck hard.

Please. For the sake of humanity, please let this happen! - RiverClanRocks

40 Metallica becomes as great as they were in the 80s
41 The re-emergence of thrash metal

Death Angel will pioneer that.

42 A new band arises with a unique style of music that prompts a new era
43 Eminem & Tech N9ne do a song together

They already have

Speedom. One of the best songs of both men involved. - WonkeyDude98

44 Justin Bieber retires

Well, not die. Just forgotten.

He needs to retire and DIE!

45 Nicki Minaj and her fans go away

I would be so happy.

46 Nicki Minaj has more dignity

She never had any dignity in the first place.

47 Marilyn Manson returns with a new album
