Top 10 Bands That Suck

I've compiled a list of bands that, in my opinion, suck. This is not purely based on my opinion alone, I've had a lot of feedback and I was sure to include the most popular complains in my list, but the selection was largely based on my taste.

The Top Ten

1 The Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers

So, I am definitely wondering how bands like Linkin Park, My Chemical Romance, 30 Seconds to Mars, Blink182, Avenged Sevenfold, and other great bands are even on this list? Do you guys realize that voting for those bands on THIS list is a bad thing or is there some confusion there? Cause I can see no other way for them to be anywhere on this list.

most cliche band out of the entire list. All their songs sound exactly the same and they don't really cover much emotional range in their songs, plus their instrumentals suck. -

Disney always says this is the best band rock of Disney! That's why only posers see Disney Chanell! - rock2metal

Why is Simple Plan and Linkin Park here? - AMAuditore

2 One Direction 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.

So these guys probably aren't the worst band here but they don't have any votes. I'm genuinely curious why simple plan, blink 182 and Short Stack are on this list. Short stack are amazing and Blink182 rocks!

This band should be 1st. And why is Epica on the 4th place?

They sucks. That's all!

3 Brokencyde Brokencyde Brokencyde is an American crunkcore musical group from Albuquerque, New Mexico, founded in 2006. The group's lineup consists of David "Se7en" Gallegos and Michael "Mikl" Shea, and musically are one of the founding groups in the crunkcore genre, which is crunk hip-hop with screamed vocals.

A disgrace to fans of music, a disgrace to music, and an overall disgrace to humanity itself - InsertNameHere

Their music is complete garbage. Everything about them is garbage. They are talentless and stupid. -

They are an insult to just about every genre there is, this includes the ones they don't play

This is legitimately bad. The others on this list are at least music or can be described as "art". This is neither. This is just bad.

4 My Chemical Romance 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.

An over-the-top band, with their exaggerated and unnecessary "artistry", they are like the Lady Gaga of rock music. Always pushing it and sounding annoying in the same time. -

I probably get lots of downvotes here. I like their musical styles, but Gerard is really really suck when it comes to LIVE. And their fangirls are annoying too. Just because you like the band and their songs, you don't have too ignore their flaws

5 The Naked Brothers Band The Naked Brothers Band

This isn't a real band

Loli forgot they existed just like everyone else forgot too haha

I don’t really care about this band but whoever made this list is inexperienced and has no idea what music theory even is.

6 Blood On the Dance Floor Blood On the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor is an American scene duo currently consisting of Dahvie Vanity and Fallon Vendetta that formed in 2006. Former members include Jayy von Monroe (2009-2016) and Garrett Ecstasy (2009). All of them provided vocals to the project. more.

Their music is always about then getting laid. Geez, sing out about something else. It's awfully annoying to listen to that annoying screamo-voice Jayy has. Not to be mean.

How is this not #1, this "band" is vile.

This list is 90% similar to "Top Ten Worst Bands Ever" list. - zxm

Easily the worst band in all of history.

7 30 Seconds to Mars 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 consists of Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Miličević. V 1 Comment
8 Skillet Skillet Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

I Don't see how Skillet is terrible. Their songs are good and they actually play live in 90% of their song at their concerts (Unlike the Justin Beiber and others).(The 10% are most of their songs from Comatose.) But I can kinda agree their style of music has always the same.No change. I'm glad they sort of -sort of- changed it up with Unleashed. The members can play well as shown in their Podcasts. John and Jen both have amazing voices (although I strongly think John's age is kind of catching up with his singing. Compare voices with Awake and Unleashed.) Jen is a very skilled drummer as she is only 27 or 28(seems old, it isn't). And can someone explain how Skillet has 2 Grammy nominations? Yeah, their -totally- terrible.

This band is awful! Lead vocalist constantly yells when the style of their music doesn't match his awful screaming...the girl/drummer or whatever she sucks also & only gets attention because she's a female..."are you sick of it?! "...yes, every time this terrible song plays on the radio.

I've heard people say they're the best rock band and I don't know why! The dude just screams his lyrics as loud as he can and the woman just gets recognition, because she is a woman! If you want a band with a excellent female vocalist, go listen to Blondie.

Christian rock. 'enough said.

9 The Used

To me, they are the most annoying stupid bunch of people. Their music barely sounds like music and they are just dull pretending to be cool. -

10 Tokio Hotel Tokio Hotel Tokio Hotel are a pop rock band from Magdeburg, Germany, consisting of Bill Kaulitz (singer), Tom Kaulitz (guitar), Gustav Schäfer (drums) and Georg Listing (keyboards, bass) that formed in 2001. more.

From their hair-spray addicted lead vocalist to their generic music and lyrics, most their fans either drool over the twins or got hooked to the bands' emo look and gimmick. Their music, however, fails on so many different levels. - Starfruit

The Contenders

11 Black Veil Brides 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.

They sucks, enough said!

12 Anal C*** Anal C*** Anal C*** was an American grindcore band founded by vocalist Seth Putnam in 1988. The band is known for their highly offensive lyrics which included themes of misogyny, homophobia, racism, Nazism, antisemitism, and schadenfreude (ridicule of the unfortunate). Their music has been received negatively more.

Why would you name a band this? - ONHOLIDAY


13 Limp Bizkit 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.

This band is awesome!

People Doesn't Even listen to their album the hunting party. The album rocks - Th3Zm0nst3r

They only had two good albums which were hybrid theory and meteora, their new work sucks.

Overrated... - abc126

15 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

I hate Adam Levine's voice!

They sound like they ate helium they suck

16 Five Seconds of Summer

They are not punk rock or pop punk

17 Fall Out Boy 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.

Their music is just dull and plain, yet they manage to make their music sound awfully irritating. -

18 Falling in Reverse Falling in Reverse Falling in Reverse is an American post hardcore band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2008, signed to Epitaph Records.
19 Epica Epica Epica is a Dutch symphonic metal band, founded by guitarist and vocalist Mark Jansen after his departure from After Forever.

Epica sucks. They first album The Phantom Agony was pretty good but they other albums suck. They have the same lyrical theme on every album. They instrumentals aren't good either. Mark Jansen's growls are stupid and annoying. They music videos are stupid and they are trying too hard to use Simone's beauty to get famous. I mean seriously? Simone always acts like a super model in their music videos. Now lets get to Simone. She is one of the worst live singers in the world. She always shows half of her boobs in live concert because she wants to irritate the male audience so they won't care if she sings terrible or not. Simone is also a Tarja-wannabe but she fails hard at being like Tarja. She is also very rude(she insulted Evanescence). Epica is a terrible band. They should quit they stupid band

Simone's voice is good (even if nothing special) but all the stuff surrounding is simply ridiculous: the music is unbelievably uninspired, lacking the minimum amount of originality to keep it from irrelevance both in structure and in sound. The lyrics are terrible too.

Arguably the best band on this list, they made the list based on the annoyance factor. They simply annoy me with their attempts in symphonic metal. Some lyrics are generic and cliche and the instrumentals sound very try-hardish. Simone Simons has an amazing voice, but voice alone does not make the music good. With some improvement I might like them, but with what they have done so far, they are annoying to the extreme. - Starfruit

An average singer with a below average band.Their lyrics are crappy and repetitiv,they basically wrote 3 songs and now they just keep on rewritiing them oh and also their guitarist should be banned from playing guitar,the guitar plays are simply dreadful

I certainly don't need an over-acting, over-the-top, tone-deaf and most certainly irritating lead vocalist prancing around to meaningless jabber, banal lyrics and mismatched/awful instrumentals. This bands' music is meaningless, the singers' voice and technique is abysmal and the songs are terrible. -
