Top Ten Bands Parents Hate Most


The Top Ten

1 Marilyn Manson

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. - DarkBoi-X

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.

No? My mum is the one who got me into Marilyn Manson, KoRn, Nirvana, Tool and others. She said she'd rather have me listen to this than the stuff that put on the radio.

Maddi/age 14.

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.
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. - DarkBoi-X

5 The Geto Boys
6 LMFAO LMFAO was an American hip hop-electronic dance music duo consisting of uncle and nephew Redfoo and SkyBlu.

Nah, my dad actually likes them. - DarkBoi-X

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. more.

My parents don't know who they are - venomouskillingmachine

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.

Are you kidding? my mom has a bunch of their cds! she loves them!

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

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

I can't even imagine how my mom would react if she caught me listening to one of their songs. - RiverVibeZ

Funny, my parents were the ones who got me into Slipknot.

Oh they certainly would. - DarkBoi-X

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. - Pegasister12

The Contenders

11 The Pussycat Dolls
12 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. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

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

Any one with sense would hate this garbage ass band

Its not a phase the haters deserve to die

My mom likes "What's Make You Beautiful"...

13 Dashboard Confessional

Wait, can someone tell me how Dashboard Confessional is bad?

14 Sex Pistols The Sex Pistols were an English punk rock band formed in London in 1975. Although they initially lasted just two and a half years and produced only four singles and one studio album, Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Sex Pistols, they are considered one of the most influential acts in the history more.

Punk=pissing off parents everywhere it's simple maths

My dad likes this one

15 Odd Future
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. - DarkBoi-X

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 :/

Who hates them? Seriously!

17 Wu Tang Clan

I once tried playing triumph in our car and my mom immidiattly turned it off

My parents like this band - venomouskillingmachine

Nobody likes these pathetic excuses for humans - RoseWeasley

Imagine liking these mistakes. - Caillou_is_awesome

Neither of my parents know who they are. - RiverVibeZ

My parents think its just a bunch of satanic growls but its death metal, not black metal

My parents hate everything about CC.
"It's just yelling! ", they say.

No, it's not. It's perfect.

20 Korn Korn is an American Nu-Metal band from Bakersfield, California, formed in 1993. 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 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? - MusicalPony

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

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 ):-|

They are the best and my mom loves them

I'm wearing a Hollywood Undead shirt right now!


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

22 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 dad knows I listen to them and he's totally fine with it. - RiverVibeZ

HaHa... I love this band even though my parents continue to protest my listening to them. - fireinside96

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.

23 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" .

I don't know why people hate them... THEY ARE THE BEST BAND IN THE WORLD! I LOVE THEM! The only reason I think my parents don't like them is because they curse in some of the songs. And I don't believe in cursing. Words are words. I don't care what they think. Disturbed is amazing and everyone should love them.

Oops, well, then my mom is messed up. She LOVES Disturbed. I don't know, just ask her. No joke. She knows half the lyrics to most of their songs.

HOW?! Their songs have lots of good and deep messages! It baffles me when they say they're satanic. They're not at all!

How can parents hate them? They have songs with powerful messages. I think they're better role models than jerks like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.

24 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. more.

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

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!

25 Pierce the Veil Pierce the Veil is an American post-hardcore band from San Diego, California. Formed in 2006, the band was founded by brothers Vic and Mike Fuentes after the disbandment of the group Before Today, which was formed out of the San Diego punk rock scene.

26 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

Everyone except emo teenage girls hate them, so don't blame the parents - emilk

My mum hates them

My parents HATE BVB because they're atheists and used to wear makeup but I don't care.

All I listen to is BVB, which is for most parents 'Satan's Music'
It's not like I care lml

27 Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon is a British rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively more.

My mom hates BMTH but they used to be my favorite band. She would say that it's the reason why I'm so depressed and that anyone who listens to "that type of music" is depressed. IT's the connection to the lyrics that makes their music so relatable and great. People who don't actually hear the music for their lyrics should give them a second chance. It's the lyrics that make it and the style it's sung in that drives it home.

They also say it's "demonic" encouraging suicide (suicide season ) and major depression. They just don't understand the lyrics connect to the songs

They say It's "satanic" because they don't understand the lyrics, but in reality, you have to pay attention to the lyrics to understand.

Maybe it's the screams that do it, but my parents and many others I know dislike them.

28 Metallica 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).

Nah, both my mom and dad like Metallica. - Userguy44

Nah, my dad likes them and I think my mom does too. - DarkBoi-X

I'm sorry but all dads love Metallica

My mom always tells me how she hates Metallica.

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

My mum thinks they are terrible people and a bad influence

Probably because they're "Emo".

Megadeth was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine was fired from Metallica.

Ok so I LOVE rammstien but my mom thinks that every metal band is made to worship Satan. Here;

Me; “hey mom! I found this really awesome song “sweet dreams” that you really love which is sang by mason. Well the metal band Nevergreen remastered that song into a metal version and it is awesomer than masons version! ”

Mom; “ok? So? I don’t listen to this satanic crap that you listen to. I’m not ever going to listen to this song of yours because it worships the devil! ”

Me; “...I hate your logic...”

Brokencyde sucks hell! Nobody likes them except brainwashed scene tween and teen girls. They created a horrible genre called crunckcore! Why were they a band in the first place?! Thanks God they're no longer famous or else I would've jumped off a cliff.

Nobody likes Brokencyde.
