Top 10 Biggest Douchebags of Rock and Metal

Rock and Metal have their fair share of douchebags from their ego's to their overall annoyance.

The Top Ten

1 Courtney Love Courtney Love

Didn't she overdose in front of her daughter? What a lovely human being, I'm sure you'll agree. - Mrveteran

Kurt deserved better than Courtney.. - Grunger92

To this day... I will never know why Kurt Cobain married her. She's annoying, antagonizinng, irriating and just downright ignorant! - BoredJeff02

2 Axl Rose Axl Rose William Bruce Rose Jr., better known as 'Axl Rose', is an American singer born on February 6, 1962, in Lafayette, Indiana. He Is the founder and lead singer of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. He is a celebrated but controversial figure in the world of rock.

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 think this one requires no explanation. - BoredJeff02

3 Lars Ulrich Lars Ulrich Lars Ulrich is a Danish drummer and one of the founding members of the American thrash metal band Metallica.

He has a really big ego... - BoredJeff02

4 Gene Simmons Gene Simmons Chaim Witz, known professionally by his stage name Gene Simmons, is an Israeli-American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, entrepreneur, actor and television personality.

I don't even need to explain this one... - BoredJeff02

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. - CrimsonShark

5 Ted Nugent Ted Nugent

Decent guitar player but damn it needs to be said, he has one hell of a ego! - BoredJeff02

6 Fred Durst Fred Durst William Frederick "Fred" Durst is an American musician and film director. Durst is best known as the vocalist of the nu metal band Limp Bizkit, formed in 1994, with whom he has released six studio albums.

I would say put him higher on this list but he's probably the most irrelevant one on here so. - cjWriter1997

He has quite the ego... - BoredJeff02

7 Ozzy Osbourne Ozzy Osbourne John Michael "Ozzy" Osbourne was born on December 3, 1948. He is also known as ''The Prince of Darkness''. Ozzy is an English singer, songwriter, and television personality. He rose to prominence in the early 1970s as the lead vocalist of the band Black Sabbath. Osbourne was fired from Black Sabbath more.

A bit weird definitely, but not douchy

Let's go after the facts, abuses alochol and drugs, has a big ego and displays lots of attiude. - BoredJeff02

8 M. Shadows M. Shadows Matthew Charles Sanders, better known by his stage name M. Shadows, is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist, songwriter and founding member of the American heavy metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

Self explantory really... just listen to his live out burts. - BoredJeff02

9 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

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!

I don't know how and why, but Marilyn Manson is definitely not a "douchebag" - Mumbizz01

Manson's not a douchebag. He's just out there, but still a decent dude. - Aragorn98

He doesn't just have a ego he intentionially wants to be controversial enough said. - BoredJeff02

10 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine more.

Dang some ego - GreenDayFan21

The Contenders

11 Jacoby Shaddix

This Papa Roach singer sure is one hell of a douche. - BoredJeff02

12 Chad Kroeger Chad Kroeger Chad Robert Kroeger is a Canadian musician and producer, best known as the lead vocalist and guitarist for the Canadian rock band, Nickelback.

How is he a douchebag? He donates to charity and cares about his fans. - BoredJeff02

13 Ian Watkins Ian Watkins Ian Watkins is a Welsh singer and convicted sex offender, best known as the former vocalist for the rock band Lostprophets.
14 Jimmy Page Jimmy Page James Patrick Page is an English musician, songwriter, and record producer who achieved international success as the guitarist and founder of the rock band Led Zeppelin.

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? - Mrveteran

15 Varg Vikernes Varg Vikernes

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. - Mrveteran

But dat smile though - GreenDayFan21

Have you seen some of the stuff he said? Awesome musician, made some of the best black metal of all time. But for Euronymous's murder, he was not the only bad one. Euronymous was also not the most kind person of all time... - Lucretia

16 Glenn Danzig Glenn Danzig
17 Jan Axel Blomberg Jan Axel Blomberg Jan Axel Blomberg (also known as Hellhammer) is a Norwegian drummer who is best known as the drummer for the black metal band Mayhem. He is notorious for his racist and homophobic views, even going as far as to honoring Faust (former drummer of Emperor) for stabbing a gay man to death.

The most racist and homophobic drummer ever. I'd put him in the top 5.

18 Billy Corgan Billy Corgan William Patrick "Billy" Corgan Jr. is an American musician, songwriter, producer, television writer, poet, and professional wrestling promoter best known as the lead singer, guitarist, and sole permanent member of The Smashing Pumpkins.
19 Wes Scantlin Wes Scantlin Wesley Reid "Wes" Scantlin is an American songwriter, lead singer, guitarist, and the only remaining founding member of the American post-grunge band Puddle of Mudd.
20 Kid Rock

He should be higher on the list. - domfincrag
