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.

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?

Hey, at least they don't use autotune, like most terrible artists these days, and these actually have TALENT.

I like their psychedelic albums from the 60s, but their stuff after the 60s is a major snooze fest. - RogerWatersfan1999

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.

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

He was deaf for God sake! Do you people appreciate that he couldn't hear what he made!

Just because he was deaf doesn't mean his music can't be super boring - EliHbk

Beethovan and most of the classical music from his era are masterpieces, but like all things, music has evolved into a more fast-pased, complex art form, so classical music is associated with dull. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

You're wrong I love Beethoven's music including 2 versions of moonlight sonata and more! - Kevinsidis

3 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

4 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

5 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.

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

Not all of her songs are boring. 19 is boring, and it to be honest sucked. 21 has some awesome songs on there, and a few from 25 are great, but the rest are snooze-ville. - Miauzer

6 Spoon

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

7 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor

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

Not only boring but she's horrendous! - Swellow

The reason why she is here is her all the songs are same... - 0744rose

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

8 Frank Sinatra Frank Sinatra Francis Albert "Frank" Sinatra was an American singer, actor, and producer who was one of the most popular and influential musical artists of the 20th century.

A classic, but not really as popping as in the 1950's... - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

9 Soul Asylum

Their songs are like the Pearl Jam song "Jeremy" was 100 different songs. They're nice to listen to, but at times they can be pretty dull. - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

10 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.

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

The only reason why the garbage music that's selling these days is selling so much and so popular is because it's marketed a ton. It makes teens and pre-teens think everyone is listening to it. Herd mentality. It's just sad.

Their songs are boring with all the force of a dead fish hurled by a paraplegic new-born baby. Their front man looks like he'd be at home in a meth den...

I've considered them to be one of the dullest bands in the world for around 15 years, now (because they ARE). - BKAllmighty

The Contenders

11 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born and raised in Toronto, Ontario.

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.

I am bored of his songs - 0744rose

Nah I like his music - JaysTop10List

I Can't Think Of Anything More Boring Than His Aoutotuned Voice - 12cc

These guys aren't terrible. But they are very mediocre, formulaic, and copy older music. - somelifeonaplanet

No even a Band.

They're more like... umm... pathetic. - TheCobainDomain

14 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching more.

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.

15 State Champs

Their music is supposed to be an action packed bomb filled with punk rock acid, but their music is so generic and repetitive it's like they took the same chords from a song they wrote and used them with different lyrics and tunes for every other song - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

16 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claiming he was Part-Indian) and he is Christian. He is the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. more.

This list is of boring artists, not flat out terrible artists. - RalphBob

He doesn't sounds boring...does he?... I think I could get many thumbs down on this comment - 0744rose

The only good part of this guy is the picture of him for this list. It's hilarious!

His songs are all the same; bland auotune tunes about girls. Every song mainly consists of a phrase repeated again and again. This guy should be number 1.

She's not necessarily boring. She's just a huge, steaming pile of trash.

He autotunes his to death just like most singers these days.
