Countries That Make the Worst Music


The Top Ten

1 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

Stupidest music I ever heard you have to be brainless to listen that

The only reason comments have negative votes is because of the indians who don't have any taste

India does have good music, honestly, as a non Indian I say that I've grown up with it. But I hate that music directors failed to credit original artists they copied from various countries' songs. Both then and now, Bollywood today for example makes tons of remakes, of old Pakistani songs? Come on India is surely capable of making good originals? It is fine if credit is given but fact that they are copied or remade without clear credits to the original song and artist is shameful especially since Bollywood then gets triple the views compared to the original song and profits entirely out of the success since they are a big business. Please be original or give full credit

Lol. Thinking intellectually, this ranking seems to be about the countries that make the best music. This ranking is given based on jealousy.

2 Canada Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, Alberta, more.

Obviously Angry Canadians are voting for the USA.
Sure, because
Michael Jackson
Elvis Presley
Whitney Houston
Bruce Springsteen
Billy Joel
Imagine Dragons
Green Day
Panic! At the disco
Fall out boy
The Eagles
Etc, etc, etc are bad to them, apparently.
So, because of some bastards in Hollywood, the US has no good music?
Ha. You have to be kidding. You can hate the US, but you can't pretend plenty of legends didn't come from there.

Canada has good and bad music. Yes, it may have annoying, overrated and stupid stuff like Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber and Avril Lavinge; but it has some geat music too! Barenaked Ladies, one of the greatest and most underrated groups of all time. Deadmau5, a really good electronic guy. Loscil, who reinvented ambient for the better. So there's the good and the bad in Canadian music, so I don't think it should be number one on this list. - PositronWildhawk

Whats wrong with you people. Who put India on this list. People are forgetting that freddie mercury was Indian. One of the greatest singer of all time. And jay sean, George Harrison. So stop saying that India make worst music.

Every singer in Canada these days are just mumble rappers and justin beiber wannabes. Justin beiber wasn't good by the way. never was, never will.

3 South Korea South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, is a sovereign state in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula.

These boy and girl groups aren't exactly the same. You guys are here just to hate it because they all look the same. You guys are obviously not making the situation any better by saying they're all ugly, they all look the same. Don't you think that causes them to DO PLASTIC SURGERY? Ironic much? You might not like it, but judging the artists aren't going to get you haters anywhere. Look more deeper into Kpop. Oh and, their voices aren't auto tuned go watched their live MR removed perfomances. I prefer people who's given a chance to kpop, and know a lot about it should have the privilege to diss Kpop. You can't judge by the surface. These kpop idols are trained for MANY YEARS to make music for fans, and you can't deny that they work harder than you people dissing them from left to right. They don't act cute, they aren't brainwashed either. They aren't even portrayed as anything but have to act like perfect models that can do everything because their companies tell them to uphold an ...more

Boy and girl bands that look the same and sing horrible cheesy songs with no actual meaning, these songs are scary catchy, repetive and a lot of them extremely childish (Extept they aren't meant for kids). Some of these groups are portrayed as sheltered little brats that can't think of anything but themselves or their girlfriend/boyfriend, some also dress like kids except they're well in their twenties, they are extremely superficial and fake, their music videos look like a singing contest, each member gets five seconds to show off as much as they can while singing and dancing, but they fail to stand out because they all look the same, same height, same body shape, same eye contacts, same face, same voices that are auto tuned. this is the worst type of music ever created to brainwash stupid human sheep into believing they're all cute in their perfect little bubble.

Sometime I was confused because some of music band member are same face,hair,nose and her body with another music band member - BeaM456

4 Mexico Mexico

I grew up listening to Banda Sinaloense music in the streets (yes, the genre is called that. ), and seriously, almost nobody in my family can't stand it. It sticks in your head in a bad way, if you know what I mean. And if you actually understand the lyrics, you'll wish you didn't actually hear them. (Can't they compose anything that isn't drug dealing?! ) But Mexico does have some good artists! Well, I'm done with my rant. - DogsUnleashed

The traditional music has the same bass line for just about every song, laugh out loud. It's brain torture to hear bass line reaper melody all day long to every song

The music is very repetitive

My issue with traditional Mexican music, whether it be mariachi, Banda, Norteño, or this new bs that's around, is that its very generic. The majority of the songs sound the same and very uninspired. There are thousands of songs that have the same harmony and bassline, whether they be in 1/2 polka, 3/4 Val's ranchero, or 4/4 bolero and so on. The instrumentation isn't the problem, the fact that there's not much variety in the musical aspect is. They have to copy elements from past songs. When a new song sounds like I've heard it before, that's a problem. There are a handful of catchy songs, but the rest feel very uninspired, generic and not memorable. The lyrics are also very mediocre. Even though there are a lot of love songs that contain a nice message, you can tell that a lot of these weren't well thought out and use very oversimplistic sentences just for the sake of filling the song. In my opinion, a song can be about a frikin tree, but can have very strong songwriting. A song can ...more

5 Sri Lanka Sri Lanka Sri Lanka, officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon, is an island country in South Asia near south-east India.

Sri Lankan Music is good for Murderers, Rapists, Gangsters, Drug Addicts, Sexual deviants, Lunatics, Psychopaths and Idiots! You can't even call it 3rd Class because 3rd Class Music is a million times better than Sri Lankan Music. You need to call it 4th Class or the Class of the Hell!


It really hurts to listen to it and if you do you are dumb

Because W.D Amaradeva died last wednesday that does'ent mean it has worst music because Sri Lankan Music is a traditional music.

6 United States United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the more.

How is this music good? Is ONE song without profanity, bad references and offensive themes to much to ask for!? Take a look at America's celebrities and you can tell why their music is messed up. DRUGS! That is why!
And they don't get in trouble for using them either.

I know everyone has their own opinion, but American singers don't really sing what I'd call good music. If you like American music, then all the countries mentioned above deserve your attention as well.

Every country has some bad and very much hated musicians. Canada on top, but Canada has some good music too. Rush, great band.

Bad music-overrated
good music-underrated
Exactly why I hate rap/hip-hop

7 Germany Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. more.

What? Germany has brought us good bands such as rammenstein, helloween, the scorpions, equilibrium and is even home to some of the greatest composers in history such as beethoven, mozart, and sebastian bach.

I love German music!

Sorry, but German music is terrible.

German songs are amongst the most stupid, brainless, recipe following lot in the bunch. Almost all German music is either oompa based, or could be spastic rock/pop/rap which could be explained as the lite knock off version of American radio music. Only difference is they sing entire songs about things as stupid and mundane as what you can make out of wood, amongst other notedly stupid topics. My personal least favorite is the party anthems that are trying too hard. "PARTY PARTY PARTY ITS TIME TO HAVE A PARTY! WE WILL HAVE A PARTY THEN EAT SCHNITZEL AT THE PARTY! " is no exaggeration to how try hard it really is. Also it's a downright ugly language so it's starting off on a bad note

8 Spain Spain Spain, officially the Kingdom of Spain, is a sovereign state largely located on the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe, with archipelagos in the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, and several small territories on and near the north African coast.

I gotta say, I hate my country's music. It's everyrthing Flamenco or Pop. I wish it had some variety. And even that variety is small!

Sorry Spain even though your language is fun when I speak it, I hate your music.

It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Wait, there is North Korean music?

One would have to listen to what plays on National Radio in N. Korea to hear their stuff. So bad its amazing. Such cloying tripe is hard on the ears!

Yes that's right... Is there a word like "music" in North Korea?

North korea has NO MUSIC if you don't count those brainwash materials. - MChkflaguard_Yt

You guys don't even know what the hell you're thinking. There classical music is awesome. Somebody just plopped it on here.

Azerbaijan #1 is good

On eurovision they have boaring songs!

The Contenders

11 Sweden Sweden Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. more.

What does sweden does here? You must be kidding guys! Opeth, bathory, meshuggah, bloodbath, hypocrisy, draconian, Marduk, Amon Amarth, dark tranquillity and many many more! You must be kidding they are the best metal country, I think! - nooreldeen

Swedish Death Metal is the best death metal! - SirSkeletorThe3rd

Why do Sweden suck?

Let me name some American Artists. Okay, maybe they weren't BORN in America, but they are based in America
Freddie Mercury
Fall out Boy
Andrew rannels
Trey Parker
BIlly Joel
Just to name some...
Oh and, I'm so sorry but about all countries have music about sex, let's not just blame it all on America, oh wait, that's what everyone always does. - MoldySock

12 Russia Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia, while a portion of it remains in Europe. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language. more.

If you watch all those Car Accident videos on You Tube, you get the feeling that those poor people are killing themselves because of the awful pop music. American pop music has basically been garbage before and after the Sixties, the only time in 300 years that it was any good at all. But Russian pop music doesn't make it sound better, just less offensive. It sounds like an out of tune violin next to a Fart.

These communists doesn't have great taste in lyrics and notes. Also, some of their music sounds like circus acts, boring!

Communists always thought that good lyrics meant good music. This is where they failed miserably. And what is India doing here. I have heard Hindustani classical music and it was just great. Nowadays Indian musicians have become copycats, but if you go back to the 60's, you can really feel the emotions in it. Musicians like salil chowdhary and Shankar Jaikishen were simply Prodigy.

Their national anthem is beautiful

I love Japanese music it shouldn't be hated people who watch anime love the music!

Very very annoying vocals, incorporating unwanted high pitched wailing. Also a very annoying language in general

Have you listened to Japanese metal, it is horrible

Every singer sounds and looks like a anime character which is bad from the start. A lot of it is pretty annoying as well - SirSkeletorThe3rd

15 Norway Norway Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the island Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.

There were no sacrifice (but there was murders) and the church burnings was to bring revenge to Christians settling their churches on norway's Viking heritage sites not satanism. Also their black metal is great if you just listen to it. Darkthrone, Burzum, Mayhem, Immortal, and many others are great examples of black metal which is actually good if you focus on the atmosphere and not what the media makes them to be - SirSkeletorThe3rd

The only reason I'm voting for this is obviously because of those damn black metal bands who burn down churches and sacrifice victims.

Norwegian music is terrible.

Yea, what black metal bands do is bad.
Let's talk about the music, though. We're not talking about what music scenes do.

And you know what? I don't like black metal music.

I don't like how the quality is always bad. Is it a rule that in order to be a black metal band, your songs has to sound like it's going through a toilet bowl? The lyrics are also pretty bland, and it's mostly just unoriginal.

This is MY OPINION, so please don't take it too seriously. I'm just one guy.
L;DR version: Make the sound quality better, and it will be (sort of) better.

19 Serbia Serbia Serbia, officially the Republic of Serbia, is a sovereign state situated at the crossroads between Central and Southeast Europe, covering the southern part of the Pannonian Plain and the central Balkans.

19? Seriously? This country gave us the garbage pile that is "turbo folk" and you say that Denmark, France, Norway, Japan, Sweden, Azerbaijan, Spain, Germany, United States, South Korea, Canada, and India. I'm done. - 445956

Most of Serbian music is dominated by hooting owlish pop folk, the rest is some type of brass orkestra music that sounds like the love child of Mexican Banda and Turkish folk... other balkan countries managed to keep there slavic musical heritage mostly pure or blended there oriental influences into something tasteful (for example Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia and have wonderful folk styles) I don't know what happened in Serbia though

Serbia has best music! Serbian nationalist songs such as Serbia Strong and Oy Aliya are great songs and should be listen to more! - SirSkeletorThe3rd
