Top 10 Biggest Douchebags of Rock and MetalRock and Metal have their fair share of douchebags from their ego's to their overall annoyance.
Axl minds his own business. Just because you don't agree with him doesn't mean he's a douche. One In Million is not an attack on homosexuals or people of another race. It is a story of Axl's experiences before making it big.
He is a homophobic a-hole. A shame because I really like a few Guns and Roses songs, but I can't listen to them anymore.
I am a big fan of Guns N Roses and his voice is amazing, but he is not the nicest person on the world
He's not a douchebag, or at least, he isn't a douchebag anymore. He is a better person than most people think.
Didn't she overdose in front of her daughter? What a lovely human being, I'm sure you'll agree.
To this day... I will never know why Kurt Cobain married her. She's annoying, antagonizinng, irriating and just downright ignorant!
Somebody has already said it but isn't the word douchebag for men?
You can call a woman a lot of things but douchebag isn't one of them
He has quite the ego...
He's an ass
Depressed people should kill themselves; that's some amazing advice you've got there Simmons. I suppose Kurt Cobain, Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell need to owe you a lot, don't they, because those three did the right thing killing themselves because they were depressed. Ronnie James Dio is a pathetic ripoff, because Gene invented the metal horns, and has been using it ever since.
No seriously, I hate Gene Simmons SO MUCH! At least with Axl Rose, I can sympathize with him due to his backstory and he's actually gotten better overtime. Gene's the same pompous, fame/money greedy A-hole since KISS's success. His own son even criticized him, calling him the "Donald Trump of Rock music", which is coincidental considering he actually supports Trump. What's sad is that he never had a sad back story to influence his personality. He got popular, and his fame got the best of him.
Just a huge douche - Kiss one of the most overrated bands ever.
I don't even need to explain this one...
Let's be real here people, this dude was the perfect example of a rock douche. He took lots of LSD, abused his wife (as well as cheat on her) and son, and donated money to a terrorist organization. I'm just saying.
At the end of the day he is still metallica
He has a really big ego...
He's mellowed now, but back then, he was an ass. He and Lars Ulrich acted like jerks to Jason Newsted and acted real surprised when Jason left Metallica. And with Dave being booted from Metallica? You couldn't fully blame Dave for attacking James, as the dude basically just kicked Dave's dog. Still, I'm a huge fan of both Metallica and Megadeth, and there are worse douches on this list.
What's wrong with Hetfield? He seems like a nice person.
He may have done some crazy or weird stuff, but I've met him before and he seemed pretty chill and kind enough to sign my guitar t-shirt although he may have been feeling a little stressed
Decent guitar player but damn it needs to be said, he has one hell of a ego!
This dude...he literally called himself the best guitarist
Dude wishes every day he was as good as Metallica
Dang some ego
"Metallica is living off past success"
Explain to me how Slayer is not living off past success there Mr. King?
Oh wait you can't...
He should be on top of that list.
He's a paedophile and has raped countless of people including children, and once even tried to rape a baby. A BABY! He's a depraved psychopath and deserves to be at no. 1
This Papa Roach singer sure is one hell of a douche.
Hands down one of the big douches of any musical genre, let alone metal. Burns down churches, is a Neo-Nazi and killed a bandmate. Deserves a high spot on the list.
He is lower than Chad Kroeger, who donated to charity. Is this a joke?
Should be higher than Kroeger... at least Kroeger isn't a murderer.
But dat smile though
Nicest guy ever!
Funny that they put him on this list. I love him I mean he's like the most original rock figure out there and he tries to be a duchebag on purpose I honestly love it!
He doesn't just have a ego he intentionially wants to be controversial enough said.
I don't know how and why, but Marilyn Manson is definitely not a "douchebag"
Manson's not a douchebag. He's just out there, but still a decent dude.
For me, my most hated person in all of music. While he is a fantastic guitarist and I'm not one to whinge about rock'n'roll rebellion, there are limits. Like kidnapping and raping a minor, for instance. Here, Page kidnapped a 14 year old Lorri Maddox because he took a fancy to her. After getting his roadie to kidnap her, she was imprisoned by Page while they had frequent sex, so he wouldn't be arrested. Utter scumbag, and to make things worse, unlike the many others on this list, Page was never arrested or punished for his crimes. Glad to know society is all in good shape, am I right?
Wait what. The Guitar God was not a douchebag. He was a great person!
He is a legend
Burnt Churches, formed the "Black Metal Inner Circle", a militant cult like group which indulged in illegal activities, was misanthropic and satanic, almost killed a band member during a rehearsal by stabbing him. Anymore points to prove that this guy deserves to be higher than 19?
Let's go after the facts, abuses alochol and drugs, has a big ego and displays lots of attiude.
Shouldn't even be on the list if you ask me.
He should be near the top of the list
He should be higher on the list.
No explanation needed.
He's said quite a couple of... questionable things. Mostly when under the influence. He and Noel... boy they do not get along at all. I wonder if he's putting on a facade sometimes to intentionally trigger people.
Liam is quite the character. I love him, but I have to admit he's a dipstick.
Got banned from an airline for abusing passengers
Oasis is better than the Beatles
Chad Kroeger, who donates to charity, gets a spot yet this literal piece of crap (as shown by South Park) doesn't. I love U2 but if I met this guy in real life I would just give him a punch in the face.
Trumptard republican values and an alcoholic and murderer who got off scott free
Just a vile unwashed no-talent dbag in every aspect.
Not a big NIN fan, but I wouldn't call him a douche...
