Top 5 of the Worst Lists I've Made as a VisitorI've made a lot of lists before I joined TheTopTens. But I also made a lot of awful ones. And I'm counting down five of the worst lists I've ever made.
5) Top 10 Slayer and Marilyn Manson Songs With Which to Shock Mainstream Pop Fans.
This one was inspired by ThatStrangeKid42's list of metal bands to shock mainstream pop fans with. The reason I regret this one is because I'm literally comparing two artists that have absolutely nothing in common other than the fact that they both use satanic music for shock value. Manson isn't even metal so I compared a rock artist to a metal band.
4) Top 10 Albums to Annoy Conservatives With.
I made this list when I was going through a phase of not liking conservatives. I tried filling it with a lot of rock albums including The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (The only reason I added that one was because it had Aleister Crowley on the front cover). It turns out that a lot of conservatives actually like the albums I added. I don't dislike conservatives anymore. If anything I'm open-minded to other people's opinions which we all should be.
3) Top 10 Things That Spring to Mind Whenever Anyone Mentions Marilyn Manson.
The reason I regret this one is because I didn't put enough effort into it. I only added four items and didn't back up a single one. Alpha101 states the things wrong with this list and I don't blame him. If it wasn't for him I would've never improved on my list making skills.
2) Reasons Why Three Days Grace Is Better Than Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and Lil Wayne.
Yes, I even made cringey comparison lists before I joined TTT. I made this one at a time where TDG was my favorite band. This was all before I knew comparing completely different things was bad. So like an idiot, I compared them to two crappy pop stars and a bad rapper. You may think this the worst comparison I've made but believe it or not, there's one that's far worse.
1) Reasons Why Marilyn Manson Is Better Than Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj.
That's right everyone. I made this list before I joined TTT. Why is worse than the Three Days Grave comparison? Because it's currently number four on the list of dumbest comparisons on TheTopTens. I was going through a phase of liking Manson so I figured I could let everyone know he's not actually satanic by making a list about why he's better than two random pop singers.
I literally compared a shock rocker to two mainstream twerkers. If that's not one of the worst comparisons of all time than I don't know what is. Even to this day I still cringe at this list because I compared three artists that have absolutely NOTHING in common! God was I a complete moron!
Those are all the lists. I'll let you all know by this point that I have matured after all these years and I'm going to be more serious about my list making and know what I'm doing. Because there's no way I'm comparing rock stars to pop stars ever again.
There's another list I regret making as a visitor. The Top 10 Reasons Why We Shouldn't Kill Sharks. Now it was a pretty decent list with some good reasoning, but its grammar was awful! This was back when I still didn't know too much about proper grammar. My grammar's gotten better now (not really the best, but it's still better now than it was in the past). - visitor
This is a great and very interesting post. Making this post is a proof you matured. Also, you as SYLFan1234 have been mature since the beginning. You make quality lists and I like them. Keep 'em coming! - Metal_Treasure
Thanks buddy! I'll keep up the good work and be on my best behavior as a user. - visitor
