Top Ten Most Boring Music Artists to Listen To

The bands and artists on this list are boring because they're genre or style of music is repetitive, dull, or/and hasn't changed it's music style in their songs and albums. These bands and artists aren't necessarily bad, they just make me want to take a nap.

The Top Ten

1 The Grateful Dead The Grateful Dead The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. Ranging from quintet to septet, the band is known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of country, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, rock, improvisational jazz, psychedelia, space rock, for live performances more.

As a rapidly aging but still dancing Deadhead I just wanted to say that...oh man, I forgot what I was gonna say... oh yeah, how amusing that the boys (that's what we called them back in the day) are considered the champions of boredom by so many people. We're number one! They always inspired very powerful emotions on a broad scale, including passionate haters with surplus negative energy to vent I guess. I kind of wish there had been more of them because the massive popularity of Dead shows kept on growing and growing until it kind of poisoned the scene a bit. But because that stew produced jokes like this one:
What did the deadhead say when the drugs wore off? This music sucks. / or, Knock knock. Who's there? Jerry and Phil. Jerry and Phil who? Exactly. /or finally: Nobody goes to Dead shows anymore. It's too crowded.
And just a warning, if you find the grateful deads to be boring, DO NOT go see Ratdog or you might fall into a coma. - renavid

Grateful Dead were GREAT tf people

Look, maybe you like 9 minute long mostly acoustic guitar songs, but I mean you also probably spend your Weekends having fun by watching golf as you file your insurance papers in reverse alphabetical order. I tried to listen to the Grateful Dead once - a really tried, but while they're pleseant sorta to listen to, but I always get a big "Depressed Bruce Springsteen" vibe from there songs. At there concerts, they don't have mosh pits, they have knitting circles. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

Why hell is the grateful dead number one most boring artist to listen to? So what if they're not energetic they are a band about coming together and having a good time what the hell?

2 Ludwig van Beethoven Ludwig van Beethoven Ludwig van Beethoven was a German composer and pianist. A crucial figure in the transition between the Classical and Romantic eras in Western art music, he remains one of the most famous and influential of all composers. His best-known compositions include 9 symphonies, 5 piano concertos, 1 violin concerto, more.

Who put this on here?

I like classical music, but in a Beethoven piece you can always guess the next sound before hearing it. - Alkadikce


The only reason Beethoven is here is because people don't have the patience and the musical literacy to recognize his work for what it is. Everyone's too busy listening to their Top 40 charts fluff (because music isn't good without "Whoa, Oh, Oh" in it, right kids? ) - BKAllmighty

I agree 100%. People these days seem to be too simple to understand true genius and only like the easy, catchy tunes and repetitive lyrics. - Miauzer

3 Dave Mathews Band Dave Mathews Band

I am an aspired drummer, so I have to takes notes from this band, ahem, Carter Beauford, for techniques and stuff. I listen to Carter...and no one else on the band because the other musicians are just so bland. I'm sorry, but repetition does not equal your own style. - SevenTreeTool

The Grateful Dead of the 1990's. Pretty much all of their albums are dull and seem like the same. They're just an uninteresting band. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

According to Nibbler from Futurama, "The Dave Matthews Band doesn't rock." - RalphBob

I sooo disagree!

4 Adele Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles more.

You haters are probably fans of any number of drongo singers on this site. Adele has a FABULOUS voice, she's a GREAT songwriter & an EXCELLENT performer.

The reason Adele is boring is because her music is supposed to be soulful, not happy and optimistic. I'd take Adele over the millions of "luxurious" artists who do drugs, constantly drink and brag about themselves. - Swellow

Adele has a beautiful singing voice, but can you honestly tell me as a human being that you were indulged and wide awake through her album 25? - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

Annoying AND overrated. - RiverClanRocks

6 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

Yes! Drake has become so boring over the years it's not even funny! I'll admit some of his songs have nice beats, but he always sounds so lazy and uninterested. - DaWyteNight

What is the point of Drake?

His voice is like being smash over the head with a brick

Oh GOSH! He's SO boring! Ryan Higa pretty much summarized his music up perfectly in his "How to Sing Like Your Favorite Artists Part 2" video. His voice is also autotuned to death.

7 Tame Impala Tame Impala Tame Impala is an Australian psychedelic rock band founded by Kevin Parker in 2007. The group began as a home recording project for Parker, who writes, records, performs, and produces the music.

For those that haven't heard Tame Impala, think Muse on LCD. I personally like some of their songs, especially "Apocalypse Dreams" which is one of their more exciting songs. However, the lead vocalist's voice, while impressive, is vastly dull in terms of variation, and the majority of their songs are slow and boring. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

This list is retarded

8 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor Meghan Elizabeth Trainor is an American singer and songwriter. Trainor's work has been recognized with several awards and nominations, including a Grammy Award, Music Business Association's Breakthrough Artist of the Year accolade and two Billboard Music Awards.

Everything here is about I Don't Need No Man And I'm Sexeh

Her songs are repetitive and slow. I yawn when I read the titles of her songs she's that boring. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

Boring, yeah. Inappropriate, yep. Trash, you bet. - Miauzer

This has to be on top.

Raised in Compton, California, Lamar embarked on his musical career as a teenager under the stage name K-Dot, releasing a mixtape that garnered local attention and led to his signing with indie record label Top Dawg more.

Nope.He's not boring at all
neither are Adele,Beethoven or Coldplay.-DarkBoi-X

12 Spoon Spoon Spoon is an American rock band formed in Austin, Texas. The band comprises Britt Daniel, Jim Eno, Rob Pope, and Alex Fischel.

I love Spoon, but of you listen to a song like "Inside Out", that pretty much sums up most of their songs, which is why I don't listen to them as much as I used to. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

13 Coldplay Coldplay Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist). Manager Phil Harvey is often considered an unofficial fifth member. The band renamed more.

While I don’t hate them with a burning passion I think Coldplay are extremely boring I cannot understand why they are so popular

I will respect your opinion because I am a semi-nice person, but I personally love Coldplay. Most of the artists on this list don't have fast paced songs about sex and drugs, which seems to be the only things that people are interested in these days. Now, Coldplay doesn't make songs about the stuff that you guys seem to like. The closest there is is Hymn for The Weekend, but that has Beyonce, so of course it isn't their normal style. Besides, you're basing this off of the Superbowl halftime which was horrible because of Bruno Mars. You may find Coldplay boring, but I find that their music is much better than many things out there. - Merilille

I actually used to like Coldplay, but once you listen to them over and over again, they become boring. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

Coldplay is probably the dullest band still living. Grateful Dead was the only act ever worth sharing pedestal with.

They are the most boring band in the history of music. Been going since 96 and have never made a decent song yet all their music is whining whinging depressing miserable repetitive rubbish

This bitch can't sing

No, no, he shouldn't be here!

Frank Sinatra is good. - Rambles

All I know about her is that she (used to at least) made every song about ex boyfriends, or something, which sounds awfully childish to me. I could be wrong. After all, I don't listen to her music by choice. - BKAllmighty

She dates people to break up with them to write a song about it. lol I'm just kidding. She's one of the few high-selling pop singers that isn't garbage.

18 Tool Tool Tool is an American progressive/alternative/post-metal band, that was formed in 1990. more.

All their songs sound the same and most of them bears vulgar and immature lyricism. They are not even a metal band yet, their annoying, pretentious, and obnoxious fanbase keep shoving them into the Prog Metal category. In my opinion, they are a bland, boring, and pretentious band that severely lacks creativity and inspiration.

Garbage band! I hear their songs on the radio all the time especially the pot and it's gets so annoying after a minute or so. All my friends like this awful band and they try hard to convert me to listen to their boring songs but, I'd rather break the friendship than listen to this band.

Exactly, I think they aren't bad but, their music make me want to take a nap.

Beethoven on this list, are you crazy? This dull band should be at the top.

Every song sounds the same and they don't seem to know how to play their instruments very well. Yeah, I'd say they belong here.

29 State Champs
