I used to like these guys a lot, but man, their stuff has just not aged well at all. Not quite Simple Plan levels of whiny, but it's up there. I can only listen to them now when they're pretty far from their nu-metal selves. - Zach808

While they weren't that great to begin with, at least they were trying with their albums. Then they only sold out harder, feeding into modern teenage angst, which was when I called quit with these "singers". - Swellow

They pretty much were my favorite band as a kid. Now, I only listen to Iridescent or The Little Things Give You Away. Those two songs are beautiful. - cjWriter1997

2 Nickelback Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

Somehow, I've actually softened on these guys. Don't get me wrong, I still despise their attempts at being preachy in songs like If Everyone Cared, but I can kinda see the appeal of their dirtier rockstar ass side. I still don't like them, but I've heard worse. - Zach808

Who would even listen to Nickelback in the first place? - Entranced98

3 Lostprophets Lostprophets

Why did I even like these guys in the first place - wrests

6 Weezer Weezer Weezer is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1992, currently consisting of Rivers Cuomo (lead vocals, lead and rhythm guitar), Patrick Wilson, Brian Bell, and Scott Shriner.

I'd say some of their stuff has actually held up really well. Or at least their 90s albums. Some of their stuff is just crap now. - Zach808

7 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.

The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative rock. Some more.

The whole Spanish Numbers (Referring to Uno, Dos and Tres) trilogy really shows how far they fell of the hook. Thankfully they're building themselves back up. - Swellow

They came back with their new album. But yeah, as I grew older, I started to like them less. I used to like them more between the age of 12-14. - zxm

9 Muse Muse Muse are an English alternative rock band from Teignmouth, Devon, formed in 1994. The members are Matt Bellamy (lead vocal, lead guitar, piano, keyboard), Dom Howard (drums, percussion) and Chris Wolstenholme (bass, backing vocals).

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. Apart from hard rock they are also more.

With Rose being the only remaining member of the band and how bad he and his music has aged, it's safe to say that they're not going to make the next decade. - Swellow

The Contenders

11 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin were an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition more.

I've been listening their songs for a long time. And yes, its been years that I know about their plagiarisms, but I still like their songs.I just don't like their members.

Because it's they who are bad. Not their songs which are bad. - zxm

I'm sorry, but I feel the need to disagree with this. I know this is an opinion but since this is a subjective list, I think I can explain why do I not agree with Van Halen being this high on the list. To me, Van Halen is amazing, and is within my top 5 favorite bands for sure, and probably tied with Whitesnake for my favorite hard rock band. Van Halen was the first hard rock band I really got into and liked a lot-and still do. I've never tired of hearing their music despite listening to it quite often. They have a variety of songs depending on what you want to listen to from both David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar's eras. - Element119

Van Halen is the epitome of plastic, West Coast bands. Took shredding to the point of torture, and slaughtered too many classic songs to ever be forgiven.

18 Suicide Silence Suicide Silence Suicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.
19 Black Sabbath Black Sabbath Black Sabbath were a Heavy Metal band formed in Birmingham, England in 1968 by guitarist and songwriter Tony Iommi, Singer Ozzy Osbourne, Bassist and Main Lyricist Geezer Butler and Drummer Bill Ward. The band got into mainstream after improving after their debut album got negative feedback. In 1978, more.
20 Metallica 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). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". more.

Except few songs most metallica's songs are kinda like a season to me. I like them at that time. (I am not saying their songs aren't good. I just don't listen them often). - zxm
