The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

So overhated that it's kind of gotten old.

The members currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums).

Just as overhated as Limp Bizkit really.

4 Simple Plan (Pop Punk) Simple Plan (Pop Punk) Simple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

Good Charlotte is FAR worse in all honesty.

5 Bullet for my Valentine (Metalcore) Bullet for my Valentine (Metalcore) Bullet for My Valentine are a Welsh metalcore/emo band from Bridgend, formed in 1998. The band is composed of Matthew Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Paget (lead guitar, backing vocals), Michael Thomas (drums) and Jamie Mathias (bass guitar).

Yeah they're bad but I've heard worse.

6 AC/DC (Hard Rock) AC/DC (Hard Rock) AC/DC are a Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm's illness and departure in 2014 .

I get that somes of their songs sound similar but overall they're not terrible.

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.

Oh no, there's been more hated from the emo genre. Black Veil Brides for example.

Not a big fan of emo music but I've honestly heard worse *COUGH* *COUGH* Falling in Reverse.

8 Anthrax (Thrash Metal) Anthrax (Thrash Metal) Anthrax is an American thrash metal band from New York City, formed in 1981 by guitarist Scott Ian and bassist Dan Lilker.

I don't really get the hate for them.

9 Pearl Jam (Grunge) Pearl Jam (Grunge) Pearl Jam is a Grunge Rock Band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1990. The band had comprised of Eddie Vedder, Mike McCready, Stone Gossard and Jeff Ament. more.

More overhated than Nirvana in all honesty.

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 more.

Glam Metal itself is basically hard rock but as a whole Guns N' Roses has gotten lots of unnecessary hate.

The Contenders

11 Metallica (Metal) Metallica (Metal) 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". more.

People hate them for these reasons which I find overused and invalid

1. they sold out (Yes they did but not the biggest like some think Megadeth and Ozzy are bigger sellouts)
2. They are the most popular Metal band (one of the Dumbest reasons to hate a band)
3. St. Anger and Lulu (Neither are the worst metal album Metallica didn't even write lyrics for one of them)

And to all Metallica haters I say

F Em All and I have F ing no regrets - christangrant
