Top Ten Bands Who Haven't Aged Well

AngryByrd
Some bands have staying power and manage to consistently release great material that keeps them relevant. And some bands just completely fuck up or just really aren't good enough to go beyond making a few songs or albums that have any value to them. Here are ten bands that would fall into the latter category.

The Top Ten

1 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.

They were never that good anyway to be honest

Maybe not to some people, but they were at least relevant about 15 years ago. Now nobody cares about them, in other words, bad aging. I still love Nookie and Rollin thought. - AngryByrd

2 Sepultura Sepultura Sepultura is a Brazilian heavy metal band from Belo Horizonte. Their first album, Morbid Visions presented a proto-black metal sound with Wagner Lamounier of Sarcófago. Sepultura's sound varies by the album, from thrash metal, groove metal, and even death metal.

While the newer material is decent, the real Sepultura was all over after Max Cavalera left. - AngryByrd

3 In Flames In Flames In Flames is a Swedish melodic death metal band from Gothenburg, Sweden, formed in 1990. ...read more.

As is the case with Sepultura, it was all over once Jesper Stromblad left. I will admit that Deliver Us is a great song, but everything else is completely forgettable. - AngryByrd

4 Queensrÿche Queensrÿche Queensrÿche is an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 in Bellevue, Washington, out of the local band the Mob.

I think the Todd La Torre Queensryche is pretty good now. But Geoff Tate was far too controlling. But he improved with the album, The Key. - IronSabbathPriest

Personally, I think Kreator is more heavier than Slayer.

The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". ...read more.

If only they hadn't changed their sound. If they had kept up their thrash sound and kept Dave Mustaine, they would be the best thrash metal band ever. But they sold out.

I actually agree with this one. I like them but they're really not that heavy.

7 Guns n Roses Guns n Roses Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1985. The classic lineup, as signed to Geffen Records in 1986, consisted of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler.

Made Appetite For Destruction, people loved it, and they were never as popular again after that. - NikBrusk

One look at Axl Rose now and you'll understand. - AngryByrd
