This List Is Not To Disrespect The Talent Or Hate Any Of These Musicians In Any Way!

The Top Ten

1 Michael Jackson Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 in Gary, Indiana and passed away on June 25, 2009. Michael Jackson was a singer, songwriter, producer, choreographer, entertainer and humanitarian. He donated (at least) a remarkable 300,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King more.

King of Pop is definitely NOT a jerk

Yes, he may have been a child molester, but he also betrayed his friend, Paul McCartney by outbidding and buying the Beatles' title and earnings from him and Lennon.

“I think it’s dodgy to do something like that,” McCartney later admitted. “To be someone’s friend, and then buy the rug they’re standing on.”

He was a child molester. Enough said.

His music is just nonsense. And his songs SUCKS!

What are you talking about his music sucks?!? What are you deaf or dumb. Sounds like both

2 Kanye West Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching more.

How is he not number!? The whole thing with Taylor Swift should have landed him at number 1. - TheStupidHobo

Kanye is the cancer of the entertainment industry. This is a man that the world would be better off without. He and his wife need to be banned from media, music, and being at awards shows.

He's not very good. His songs are forgettable. His vocals are mundane. Yet, he claims himself to the most talented singer songwriter ever? He's just an ass.

He is a bigger jerk than Michael Jackson was and Michael was the sweetest thing in the world

He beat up Rihanna and turned into the new Ike Turner, he is a huge jerk. - lukestheman4

Ignoring the Rhianna event, the guy is just a piece of dirt who hasn't learned anything.

Ozzy and Bieber on the same list? No, the difference is that Ozzy is crazy but Bieber is an annoying son of a gun AND a jerk. :-(

Justin Bieber sings like crap and he's always whining

Michael Jackson shouldn't be in this list. But this jerk deserves to. - Metalthomas

5 Axl Rose Axl Rose William Bruce Rose Jr.,better known as 'Axl Rose', was born on February 6, 1962, in Lafayette, Indiana, USA. 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.

Axl rose just insists on being a douche to every single person he possibly can. PS Thom Yorke should be up near the top. He's pretty pretentious. - chriscg

Rose should definitely be higher than number four. He's an arrogant egotist who makes his money by suing people.

He managed to scare the other band members away

Look, the thing with Axl is that he has mental issues and is insecure. If you watch him and listen to him it becomes obvious. H can actually be a good person and has proven more than once he has a good heart. Not saying he can't be a dick because he has but come on, are you a saint? He has been manipulated and let his issues take him over so maybe it isn't always the real Axl in the drivers seat.

7 Ted Nugent Ted Nugent

Ted Nugent is a racist redneck jackass who should never be allowed in front of a camera. He's a waste product and a pile of fecal matter.

This guy is funny to listen to. Quote "President Obama is a subhuman mongrel."

The politic thing don't bother me. he just brags about his music

The biggest ass that ever existed in music history... period... end of story!

15 Dave Mustaine Dave Mustaine more.

Metallica kicked him out for having such an attitude. You know it was bad then, because they knew he was better than all of them combined.

I like dave mustaine and megadeth, but they probably wouldn't have been this famous if it wasn't for Metallica

Why do you think he was kicked out of Metallica?

This man try's to take WAY to much credit for the little baby bit that he CO wrote for Metallica. His fan base is. Joke too - Sabbath
