Top 10 Bands Everyone Listens to but Eventually Grows Out Of

The Top Ten

1 Simple Plan Simple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

For a lot of people, Simple Plan is the quintessential "grow out from" band, there's a lot of people who like them at one point but after another they don't stick with them anymore
They are the poppiest of pop punk, while bands like MCR, Green Day, Sum 41, Blink-182 and even FOB had a lot of edge and personality in it, Simple Plan is just like the most family friendly "punk" band out there

2 Staind Staind was a Alternative Metal band formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995. more.

Similar case to Simple Plan
However Staind has some sense of edginess through their music (after all they are a nu metal band) however, from all the nu metal bands out there, Staind is by far the dullest and most generic from them all

3 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch, often shortened to Five Finger or Death Punch, also abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is an American Alternative Metal/Alternative Rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

Started out okay just to give us the exact same album over and over again with the exact same type of lyrics and deliver

4 Breaking Benjamin Breaking Benjamin is a American post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in 1998. The bands members all changed in the time between 2010 to 2014, with the exception of Ben Burnley (Vocals). The Ex-Members included Chad Szeliga (Drums), Aaron Fink (Guitar) and Mark Klepaspi (Bass). more.

They might not be the worst post grunge band out there, but they are definitely the very first band I think when I heard the expression "all their songs sound the same"

5 Hoobastank Hoobastank is an American rock band, formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California with lead singer Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse, and original bassist Markku Lappalainen.

Get very big thanks to one hit "The Reason" and people kinda accepted them for that, however they just feel like a lite version of Incubus with Papa Roach + Sum 41 influence that doesn't really fit at all with the music, and doesn't make it really good

6 Good Charlotte Good Charlotte is an American rock band from Waldorf, Maryland that formed in 1996. Since 1998, the band's constant members have been lead vocalist Joel Madden, lead guitarist and vocalist Benji Madden, bassist Paul Thomas, rhythm guitarist and keyboardist Billy Martin and drummer Dean Butterworth, more.

Same case as Simple Plan

The song “Dance Floor Anthem” was my childhood! :)

7 Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. 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.

Despite having a lot of defenders or people who just say "you know they have like... 1 or 2 good songs" Nickelback is not a band that people tend to hype with them

8 Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

Similar case to Hoobastank, got really popular but thanks to the lack of variety and new ideas, people just forgot about their existence

9 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland. They're mostly known for their singles like Break Stuff, My Way, My Generation, Nookie, Eat You Alive, Rollin', and Take a Look Around. They more.

They haven’t interested me since the first time I listened to them. Rollin’ is a decent, but other than that I don’t like them very much. There songs are either cringy, really bad or just mediocre at best.

Do I really need to explain this one?

10 New Found Glory

Similar case to Simple Plan and Good Charlotte
although Something personal that happened through lead guitarist Chad Guilbert back in 2017 can also speak about why people grow out of them

The Contenders

11 Lostprophets Lostprophets were a Welsh rock band from Pontypridd, Wales formed in 1997. Founded by lead vocalist and lyricist Ian Watkins, bassist Mike Lewis, drummer Mike Chiplin and guitarist Lee Gaze, they were originally a side-project to hardcore punk band Public Disturbance.

This is mainly by one big controversy that I don't know if I can tell here
But... ignoring all that, they just feel like what Hoobastank and Papa Roach were doing at the time, nothing interesting

12 Disturbed Disturbed is an American nu metal/ alternative rock/ alternative metal band from Chicago, Illinois. The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren. They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .

Despite being considered by many as one of the "good nu-metal bands", their latest albums doesn't have the amount of acclaim and fame their earlier albums had, making people either stop following them, or forgot they were good to begin with

13 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

Same case as Disturbed, although a lot of people hated them even before the "post hiatus" era, despite that they were still a group with a lot of fans thanks to their pop punk/emo pop style of music, style that they completely change by a mix between weird electro-rock and generic pop

14 30 Seconds to Mars Thirty Seconds to Mars (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band currently consists of brothers Jared and Shannon Leto.

Same case as FOB, started out okay making alt rock but turned more and more into pop, at a point they weren't interesting enough for anyone
I also remember the time they were at the top 10 in the list "Best Bands of all time"

15 Skillet Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

Similar case to Breaking Benjamin, another post grunge band that had nothing special besides their christianity, but after certain point you just feel tired of the same style they make over again

16 Three Days Grace Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1992 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst. Their original name was Groundswell until they changed it to their current name in 1997. more.

A lot of people consider them as "the best post grunge band ever" and their first 4 albums had some material, but after the replacement of their lead singer people just got tired of them and lose interest about their latest work

17 Seether Seether are a South African hard rock band founded in May 1999 in Pretoria, South Africa. The band originally performed under the name Saron Gas until 2002, when they adopted the Seether name.

Similar case to Staind, good at some point but then came out as another generic nu metal band

18 Creed Creed was an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consisted of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

A lot of people known Creed back in the day, but right after all the memes, people realizing Scott Stapp was an awful singer and the existence of the superior Alter Bridge (conformed by 3 members of the band) People finally give up with Creed

19 Bullet for my Valentine 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). Former members include Nick Crandle and Jason more.

Similar case to Disturbed and TDG, started out okay but their music got less interesting with the time at a point people just lose interest with them, their last album Gravity is a prove of that

20 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal 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). more.

Despite still liking these guys, their fame isn't the same as it was back in 05

21 One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015.

Nah once a Directioner forever a Directioner
