Ok but he actually sucks. He’s a satanist and he looks like a 300 year old dead alien that wears human clothing and he has a weird voice to hide his satanic messages

I don't think this needs an introduction. My dad doesn't like him and I don't think my mom knows who he is. But I like this music though.

People can say whatever they want about a shock performer, but that fuels their fire. Shock performance is about shock, and shock arouses feelings of hatred and disgust. If he wanted to please parents he wouldn't have decided to be in the performing arts/entertainment industry.

It's good that parents hate him. That's what he wants. Fear and hatred makes him what he is, and he has some incredible music so I can't thank those against him enough.

2 2 Live Crew The 2 Live Crew was an American hip-hop group from Miami, Florida. They caused considerable controversy with the sexual themes in their work, particularly on their 1989 album As Nasty As They Wanna Be.
3 N.W.A N.W.A was an American hip hop group from Compton, CA. They were among the earliest and most significant popularizers and controversial figures of the gangsta rap subgenre, and are widely considered one of the seminal groups in the history of hip hop music.

My parents don't like rap so they don't know who they are, but if they did they would probably hate them. I mean, NWA literally stands for "N***** With Attitude" lol.

4 Three 6 Mafia Three 6 Mafia is an American hip hop group from Memphis, Tennessee, signed to Columbia Records. The group was formed by DJ Paul, Lord Infamous, and Juicy J in 1991 and was at first known as Triple 6 Mafia.

I don't think they know but they probably wouldn't like it.
I like Three Six Mafia though.

5 The Geto Boys
6 LMFAO LMFAO was an American hip hop-electronic dance music duo consisting of uncle and nephew Redfoo and SkyBlu.
7 Jack Off Jill
8 The Lonely Island
9 Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse is an American hip hop, horrorcore and rap rock duo consisting of rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, that was formed in 1989 in Detroit. ...read more.

Dude, news flash! They are the self-proclaimed "most hated band in the world". I love these guys, my parents flip out when they are mentioned. I actually bought a tshirt that had them on it and my mom threw it away.

My parents don't know who they are

Both my parents hate them largg sad!

They maybe think (if they're not American)
they are wearing corpse paint and play black metal.

And now those juggalos are called a gang.

I may don't like hiphop/horrorcore but
come on, STOP STEREOTYPING MUSIC!

10 Slipknot Slipknot is an American Alternative/ Nu Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band is best known as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of American Alternative Metal during the late 1990s - 2000s and are distinguishable by the band's clothing choices, consisting of black/red jumpsuits and horror ...read more.

Neither of my parents know who they are, but I would honestly love to see their reactions to a song like Eyeless or Nero Forte lol.

I know I'm sound rude for saying this but the parents who think that all rock/heavy metal bands are bad influences should go to hell. That's a question I will not tolerate. I've been listening to rock and metal my whole entire life and nothing bad has ever happened to me. There are some rock/metal bands that are really good role models. In fact, some rock and metal can prevent suicide and murder because most rock/metal songs tell them that they're not the only ones who are angry in the world.

I agree with you. Rock/Metal is not all bad. I listen to both myself.

Haha, my parents hate Slipknot. They find the masks to be overly eerie and can't relate relate to the music much. Sucks to be them though, they're missing out.

Parents hate slipknot masks and the fact they have screaming in the music

Punk=pissing off parents everywhere it's simple maths

Everyone hates One Direction. So is it really a surprise?

Any one with sense would hate this garbage ass band

I don't get why so many parents hate them...

My mum hates their huts, but I love them

16 Rage Against the Machine Rage Against the Machine is a rock band formed in Los Angeles, California. The band consists of vocalist Zack de la Rocha, bassist Tim Commerford, guitarist Tom Morello and drummer Brad Wilk.

My dad says he doesn't like them but I've caught him many times enjoying their music whenever I play a song by RATM so he probably secretly likes them but because he's Conservative, he won't admit to liking a leftist band.

Who hates them? Seriously!

bro the cruse like its no tomorrow how could a parent not hat them... I love em!

A rage song came on in the car and I had to turn the radio off because my mom hates any song with swearing and same with my dad :/

My parents would get ticked off if I listen to BOTDF. They would ban me from it, which I would actually be glad for my parents to do that. I want my parents to ban me from this band.

I love them but my parents hate them with a passion! They only focus on the explicit stuff and don't realize that they actually have songs with a lot of meaning :(

This doesn't make sense... Everyone hates blood on the dance floor

Nobody likes these pathetic excuses for humans

19 Mötley Crüe Mötley Crüe was an American metal band formed in Los Angeles, California on January 17, 1981. The group was founded by bassist Nikki Sixx and drummer Tommy Lee, lead vocalist Vince Neil and lead guitarist Mick Mars.

My parents don't mind them and I think my dad likes some of their songs but I guess some parents who didn't want their kids listening to rock and metal hated them.

HaHa... I love this band even though my parents continue to protest my listening to them.

Are you kidding? W T F? My family loves them. I'm strange. My favorite is Queen! Mer!

My parent like them, they both grew up listening to this.

20 Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse is a American death metal band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1988. The band is known for their graphic album covers, explicitly violent lyrics and song titles like "I C** Blood" The group got into mainstream after performing the song "Hammer Smashed Face" in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: ...read more.

The band's current lineup includes founding members Jonathan Davis, James "Munky" Shaffer, Brian "Head" Welch, and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu, with the addition of Ray Luzier, who replaced the band's original member, David ...read more.

It's really annoying how my mom tells me that they're devil worshipers and that they're a bad influence. These guys are not bad role models in my opinion. They've even performed for soldiers in Vietnam.

Why do people hate Korn so much?

This one I kinda get, because of the rawness of their music, but the message is still as true as it gets, besides they can't say anything what with approving of my sister's love of pop ehg ):-|

My parent HATE this band they think they sing about rape and that it has bad subliminal messages

Yeah they are definitely not the kind of band my parents would like. Regardless I don’t like them that much either. My mom would freak out listening to them

So many people only listen to the songs about sex, drugs, and partying and ignore the songs that truly have meaning.

I'm wearing a Hollywood Undead shirt right now!

They are the best and my mom loves them

23 Metallica Metallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 .

Nah, both my mom and dad like Metallica.

24 My Chemical Romance My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. 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.

I was gonna vote Misfits, but they aren't here so I went My Chem basically because parents are generally either annoyed, disgusted, offended, or frightened after finding out their kid likes My Chem a lot more then the other "teenager" bands instead of just certain their child is a murderer (However, there are the select few that endorse the bands)

If my parents knew I love a band who have an entire era about blood and revenge they would kick me out of the house

They are not a bad influence MCR is just an emo band, so they are bound to get hated on by parents.

My mum thinks they are terrible people and a bad influence

25 Slayer Slayer is an American thrash metal band from Huntington Park, California, formed in 1981 by guitarists Jeff Hanneman and Kerry King. They rose to fame with their 1986 album Reign in Blood, and is credited as one of the big four of thrash metal bands, the others being Metallica, Megadeth, and Anthrax. ...read more.

Maybe because of "Angel of Death", their lyrical themes & cover artworks.

I can understandy why parents hate them
but to be seriosly: Lots of rock/metal bands get hated for no reason.
Slayer's an awesome Thrash/Djent band

Always remember to put on your dead skin mask!

Slayer is one of the best thrash metal bands of all time. Parents probably hate them for satanic and graphic lyrics and imagery.
