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 The Jonas Brothers are an American pop rock band. Formed in 2005, they gained popularity from their appearances on the Disney Channel television network.

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 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.

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

Skillet sucks! They only whine about there songs!

I've at least listened to one song from this band but come on, guys. I don't see how they're a crap band. - UltraSaiyan419

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 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.

The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

Not even that good overrated as hell

These guys are NOT rock! - UltraSaiyan419

7 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


8 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. -

9 The Naked Brothers Band The Naked Brothers Band The Naked Brothers Band are an American pop rock duo from New York, New York, consisting of brothers Nat and Alex Wolff. The siblings are known for their work on the Nickelodeon television series The Naked Brothers Band, which was created and produced by their mother, actress Polly Draper. It was adapted more.

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.

10 Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

Dan Reynolds' holier than thou complex made me stop listening to Imagine Dragons. - UltraSaiyan419

The Contenders

11 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

12 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 currently consists of brothers Jared and Shannon Leto.

Whoever put this screw you, and I hope a robber steals your money. - Soulstealer

Pop arena rock. Leto and his crappy music. All the bands are playing it safe this days. No one is writing music to challenge the system or ourselves anymore, just generic pop rock doogie. I'm over this pretentious band

HAHAAHAHA how are these posers still a thing

What this is the best band!

13 The Used The Used The Used is an American rock band formed in Orem, Utah, in 2001. The group consists of vocalist Bert McCracken, bassist Jeph Howard, drummer Dan Whitesides, and guitarist Joey Bradford.

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. -

14 Panic! at the Disco Panic! at the Disco Panic! at the Disco is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2004 and featuring the current lineup of vocalist Brendon Urie, accompanied on tour by bassist Dallon Weekes, guitarist Kenneth Harris, and drummer Dan Pawlovich.

I agree with the comment on this "band". Brendon Urie is an excellent singer, but he IS a sellout. He should abandon the name of the "band" and go solo because to me, there's no band if it's just one guy. - UltraSaiyan419

Brendon Urie sucks... its not even panic at the disco anymore its just Brendon Urie. he has such an amazing voice and to see how he sold out to pop hurts me to the core. Always listened to Panic at the disco but when it was just Brendon! the musical style and everything overall started to go downhill!... this is gospel for the fallen ones. inseparable bastards

15 Florida Georgia Line

They actually made me think their song H.O.L.Y. was a song about God. Until I learned the ugly truth. - UltraSaiyan419

16 Aqua

Need I really say more than "Barbie Girl"? Yes? *sigh* Fine, how about the annoying "techno" music and her squeaky voice? Fun Fact: her voice doesn't really change when the song "Barbie Girl" is chipmunked.

17 Epica Epica Epica is a Dutch symphonic metal band, founded by guitarist and vocalist Mark Jansen after his departure from After Forever.

Sucks garbage cds all of them..the lead vocals of girl are horrible plus bad music

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

Their earlier work was amazing. It was the later stuff they released just prior to Bennington's death that really gave us the cold shoulder. - UltraSaiyan419

No. - Userguy44

This band is awesome!

20 Five Seconds of Summer

They are not punk rock or pop punk

21 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.

Worst vocals I've ever heard,
No rhythm when rapping,
Annoying while singing,
Curses too much.
No hate.
No class.

Not so suck, this band is really great. Just you stupid people is hated this band. Laugh out loud, limp Bizkit is awesome band.

This band suck!

22 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.

Maroon 5 used to be a great band. After 2011, they've since sold their souls. - UltraSaiyan419

I hate Adam Levine's voice!

They sound like they ate helium they suck

23 The Chainsmokers The Chainsmokers The Chainsmokers are an American DJ and production duo consisting of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The EDM-pop duo achieved a breakthrough with their 2014 song "#Selfie", which was a top twenty single in several countries.

They Chainsmokers are just weird. - UltraSaiyan419

Pizdec their songs sound all in the same

24 Paramore Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams, guitarist Taylor York, and drummer Zac Farro.

These guys used to be HEAVY. Not vocally heavy. Just HEAVY. Now they've just devolved into typical pop rock trash. - UltraSaiyan419

I loved Paramore in the Riot! Times. Now it's gotten pretty boring. Same melodies, same lyrics, and most annoyingly, same topics. All Hayley writes about is how other band members betrayed her friendship. And now she doesn't even have the same strong voice she used to, so their music is getting progressively worse, old and repetitive.

What is so special about this band? Most of their songs just blend and sound the same. They are not necessarily bad, and Hayley Williams does seem to have a good voice, but their music is nothing special, pretty much the same as any other punk rock band out there today. -

they are absolute POSERS! browsing through poster in the music store and all I see is paramore! plus I think they have no indeviduallity and almost all their songs sound the same and simply don't like their image.
her voice sounds more like an american accent then a melody! STOP TRYING TO BE COOL

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. -

26 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.

I honestly don't think these guys are that bad. But they do need to lose the Motely Crue getup. That's the only nitpick I have to say. - UltraSaiyan419

They sucks, enough said!

27 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative 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.

Avenged Sevenfold is one of the most amazing metal bands there are. This list is a little too critical. - UltraSaiyan419

I like some of their songs. - Croy987

This band is OKAY, but the fan base is just annoying. - LostDream258

The singing is annoying and horrible. the "music" if you want to call it that is non-musical - bysonman

Why would you name a band this? - ONHOLIDAY


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

Simple Plan? What a disgusting piece of trash band. Words truly cannot describe my utter hatred for this band. Here we have a bunch of guys who look like they have just walked out of a lesbian bar and prance around with guitars pretending to play them with an actual fact they're a boy band with an unmistakable boy band sound. Some people even have the nerve to call these guys punk. Punk? They're not punk. Black Flag is punk. The Clash is punk. Circle Jerks are punk. Dead Kennedys are punk. But Simple Plan are not punk. They sound nothing like punk. They are a whiny emo poser boy band who pretend to be punk, but they're not. They whine about how horrible their lives are when they're rich kids living in nice neighbourhoods. Look at all these people living in horrible towns in places such as São Paulo and Nairobi. Fans, take a look at yourselves. Their lead singer Pierre Bouvier sings like he has had a horrible seizure. After breaking up with his boyfriend, the Go Compare man, he ...more

The lead vocalists' singing is annoying and the lyrics are banal and over-the-top. I don't think this needs much explanation. -

30 Rage Against the Machine 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.

33 Creed 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.

Whiny emos - Userguy44

They suck! All of their fans think they are "cool" or "punk" because they listen to them. They say they are bringing back rock and roll in reality the only thing they are bringing back is horrible music.

38 Beastie Boys Beastie Boys The Beastie Boys are an American Rap/Rock group that was formed in 1981 by its three original members, Michael "Mike D" Diamond, Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz, and Adam "MCA" Yauch.
