Countries That Make the Worst Music
The Top Ten
Stupidest music I ever heard you have to be brainless to listen that
I'm so put off by Indians claiming things as theirs. They think only they as Indians existed in forget the subcontinent, the whole world so that makes them arrogant! They claim all Pakistani songs, not sure about Bangladesh, as being Indian and when it comes to talk of terrorism - uh no that's all Pakistani! But their music is ours. That's not the only hypocrisy, they ban Pakistani artists, they deny visas to artists too! Even Krewella were denied just because they are half Pakistani! But Atif Aslam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan are all good, because Bollywood benefits from them. The sheer arrogance and hypocrisy of Indians. I am so glad I have cut out Indian content out of my life. I used to watch Indian soaps, films, music content, shows, be blindly obsessed. But I'm gonna have to support Pakistan now because enough is enough. - a frustrated Brit.
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
Obviously Angry Canadians are voting for the USA.
Panic! At the disco
Fall out boy
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.
Let's face it, Canada...a lot of what comes out of your country just doesn't quite make it. There's certainly a few really interesting, original acts up there...but their efforts get outweighed by the MASSIVE spew of either overrated or second-string acts that have emerged from the Great White North over many years. Maybe if your government gave up on its weird 'canadian content' regulations so that more outside influence would get in, then there'd be a lot more cross-breeding of ideas going on, instead of the Canadian music scene being a self-enforced backwater/circle-jerk.
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.
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
Everything is controlled by the record label. I am so sad people can accept art becoming commodity.
I don't think it's fair to generalize the whole country for making crappy pop music because I'm pretty sure South Korea has great singers and bands that are overshadowed by their manufactured pop music. I used to listen to kpop when Baby V.O.X were still around (Yes, I'm older than most kpop fans today). Then, I got tired of it because the groups produced the same, mediocre crap over and over again, except with new faces in the scene. It's like if Steven Moffat wrote songs for them or something. I'm kidding, but in the kpop industry, looks come first before talent. I know most labels will deny it, but it's mostly true. I don't see girls who look like Susan Boyle in kpop. Even if they hired one, they will pressure diets and surgeries on her the most and it's sad.
Most kpop fans I've encountered today are vain. Even more so than jpop fans. Why? It's because they valued their appearances more than their music. Most I've seen on social media are unhappy with themselves because they ...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
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!
I am Sri Lankan and you call SRI LANKAN MUSIC WORST. Sri Lankan music is like listening to the melody of the angels in heaven. STOP BEING OFFENSIVE YOU NO-EXPERIENCE-OF-GOOD-SRI LANKAN-MUSIC people
THE WORST MUSIC BY THE WORST MUSICIANS!
It really hurts to listen to it and if you do you are dumb
I will not be surprised if half of the votes come from ignorant people who think cheesy anime openings defines Japanese music.
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
Wait, there is North Korean music?
Yes that's right... Is there a word like "music" in North Korea?
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!
I didn't know North Korea had music. But then again, there's probably no such thing as "music" here anyways.
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.
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
Sounds like clown music, and really circus sounding
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!
Ok. One, flamenco is awesome.
Two, Spain is home to two of the greatest metal bands: Mägo de Oz (folk metal; has the best album of the decade, Ira Dei) and Stravaganzza (gothic/symphonic metal; has one of the best singers of all time, Leo Jimenez).
Sorry Spain even though your language is fun when I speak it, I hate your music.
Most songs aren't very good
The UK has: The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Queen, The Clash, Radiohead, Oasis, Blur, Massive Attack, The Chemical Brothers, Ed Sheeran,
The US has: Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, Blake Shelton, Reba MacEntire, Kevin Federline, Lil Wayne
There's no comparison.
The US has: Simon and Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, The Beach Boys, The Mothers of Invention, Nirvana, The Four Seasons, Chuck Berry, Buddy Holly, Frank Sinatra, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Joan Baez, The Byrds.
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.
But what about electronic? A lot of good underground electronic artists live there.
America nowadays has TERRIBLE mainstream music in my opinion. Tons of recent mainstream songs have bad and/or generic lyrics, bad singers, and the production values aren’t great either.
However, we do have Metallica.
This is the home to mumble rap, the worst music genre in history.
A country with nothing to offer but techno, heavy metal and mediocre radio rock that sounds like German schlager with distorted guitars.
Everything just comes across as forcibly dark and harsh just like the culture itself. There's nothing sexy, light-hearted or charming here sound-wise.
German "pop" music is cringy, nasty, shallow and plain out horrid. Every song sounds the same, and the language is just not fit for art in any way. There are some exceptions of good german contemporary music, like Kraftwerk, Rammstein or some former GDR bands, but they - in no way - make up for the hideous monstrosity that is german pop music.
While I gotta say, that germany had some awesome classical composers, it makes the terrible modern "music" even more shameful.
Germany has Blind Guardian and Rammstein. Its music gets my respect.
Even as a German myself, I have to say most German music is garbage. We were the ruling force in classical music, but nowadays, you can forget it. The last good German band was Kraftwerk, and that's as far as it goes for the past 50 years.
Chinese music sounds like cats being strangled
Chinese music is very boring
Modern Chinese pop is boring as hell with lots of autotune and annoying gimmicks (a live show would soon freak you out no matter it is a cover or a concert), just like Kpop but with less corporation. This completely overshadowed Chinese classical music (those with erhus and stuff), which is beautiful.
Coming from a Chinese!
Their pop is really cringy...
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!
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!
Swedish Death Metal is the best death metal!
Why do Sweden suck?
Traditional Russian music, their hard bass, and Tchaikovsky make Russian music pretty great.
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.
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
Are you... are you kidding me?! Who on Earth put Norway on this list?! NORWAY MAKES AWESOME MUSIC! And I’m not even Norwegian, but their music has to be my absolute favorite. Their Black Metal is awesome. Their Eurovision songs are always great, too! It’s my #1 for sure!
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.
What? French music is beautiful just listen to Daniere Danse.
No actually, I quite enjoy télephone
Best in Europe for RnB, RAP, soul, rock, beat, rock psyche, garage rock, pub rock, mod revival, underground mus.
From classical to the most up to date music (e.g. Shaka Ponk)
Any traditional arab music sounds the same and is awful
Really sucks. Like the government there.
Songs about how awesome god is and nothing else - arab gospel
All their music sounds like a goat.
Serbian music sucks... Turbo folk artists have zero talent, even "rap" sucks... The artists are promoting alcohol, smoking and drugs as positive things and the production is crappy... Songs from Serbia should be no. 1... I think no country has music that actually promotes drugs like Serbian music does... Especially new ones...
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
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.
Serbia should be first, all of singers in Serbia are terrible or mediocre.
"My parents listen to traditional Vietnamese music all the time. I want to die"
Here are some great artists: The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Who, Queen, Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix! Play that music loud and enlighten your parents to great music, instead of letting them listen to that garbage!
If you don't think they'll like it, though, put on a pair of headphones if you own one and listen to any of these artists mentioned above, to escape from music that you hate so much!
by the way, you're not wrong, I don't like Vietnamese music either!
My parents listen to traditional Vietnamese music all the time. I want to die
I am ashamed to be Vietnamese. Its music is the worst of the worst, V-POP or Vietnamese traditional music are like so old and sound the same
Horrible and the worst music I have ever heard I had to even plus my ears
I just don't like mainstream Filipino music that is all about love, especially those sung by actresses who are trying hard to be singers. So obvious that they are in auto tune. Eraserheads, Parokya no Edgar and some other bands are good, but Filipinos have to admit that the instrumental almost sounds the same for these bands. As for Filipino rap, even if you say the late Francis Magalona is good, I personally find every Filipino rap trying hard rap and for the the general mass. The general mass are in lower middle class and below. Folk music is very trippy and definitely better than Filipino rap.
Mainstream Filipino music may be slow and sometimes generic, but they at least have better lyrical themes than those crappy pop songs from Miley Cyrus or Justin Bieber. We got Wolfgang, Eraserheads and Rivermaya! And some other great bands!
I get why Philippines was number 1 as "Top Ten Countries With Good Music" but man, their voices was just...just...heavenly something else.
Philippines music are often slow, sometimes way too slow, it get awfully boring and makes you sleepy
Disco polo is probably the worst and the most lame music genre ever. Surprisingly not only peasants listen to it but it's a popular club music!
I don't like the current Greek music scene and I'm Greek. :-P In the past we produced better songs. Nowadays only if you sing a bad song you will be popular here with few exceptions of course.
Greeks should make music and boy and girl band just like something with better quality like kpopbut with greek lang and better lyrics that doesn't have to do only with sex and break up and also we need younger artists not 50 yrs olds I'm greek and that's my opinion
Greece has the worst traditionsl music Ever!
I am from Greece and I really dislike mpouzoukia. Its like torture for the ears. They are literally copying other artists song, put other lyrics(most make no sense) and call it music. No, its called trash. Geez...
I am ashamed for this generation..
Awful country, but good music.
Nigerian underground bands
With great musician like D'bang, p-square, Davido, Wizkid and many more, Fela ywon Grammy award in the 60's Nigerian musician ares know world wide, dbanj signed with kanye west Record label and Burna boy signed under UNIVERSAL MUSIC, Every year at least 3 Nigerian Musicial are nominated at BET AWARD
Their music sounds like crying.
Yael Naim, singer of "New Soul" was born in France, but now lives in Israel, and we also got Infected Mushroom. The only bad music artist to come out of this country is Borgore.
Mainstream Iranian music has a very funny rhythm that is very recognizable. It's actually quite annoying if you hear a lot of its mainstream music. Like has anyone seen the "Shift it" commercial in US? The background music sounds very mainstream Iranian music. Sounds silly. Haven't heard traditional music so wouldn't judge on that.
Worst music in the world: Persian pop music... every song sounds the same... same stupid electronic beat, same boring vocal melody and every MF is a singer here! and don't get me started on Persian rap and borefest they call traditional music here... Iran should be #1 in this list.
Brazil used to have good artists, but today almost all the music is HORRIBLE!
At least they have Sepultura!
I'm a brazzilian, and I can tell you THE MUSIC HERE IS AWFUL, only party, sexual and money themes, I Hate this songs :s
I LIVE HERE AND WAS BORN TOO AND I HATE THESE HORRIBLE "FUNKS"
Italian music is amazing!
They brought Lacuna Coil! They're awesome!
Italian music except Vvaldi hundreds years ago, what else?
Italian music is great! Try listening to Pino Daniele, great blues.
Did you ever heard a Romanian song?
They are the worst!
Their metal is alright, but the best music artist to come from the Netherlands is Carach Angren.
I dare you, try any of it. Go ahead, I double dare you.
Dutch music is awesome.
With Misha and other kid singers, I can see a reason.
I play pokemon go everydeey
The traditional music is frikin amazing!
U2, Thin Lizzy, Hozier's work that isn't "Take Me To Church," Irish mjsic is awesome.
Their folk music completely sucks.Unoriginal,the lyrics revolve around booze and women.Only good artist are Dubioza Kolektiv(combination of rap and reggae) and Parastos(underground power metal,have only 2 songs on internet)
What about Immortal Technique?
Their music is so annoying because they copy off of modern day American music and translate it into their own language!
It is torture, truly horrible
Ac/Dc is good music
Weird music scene.
They got Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, and Gunship (synthwave).
By the way, I don’t like the Beatles at all.
I think someone mixed up WORST with BEST. Uk makes about the best music ever, beatles, queen, rolling stones, iron maiden, black sabbath, led zeppelin, I could go on. The point is Uk makes the best music.
What!? Um hello? THe Beatles, The Rolling Stones, I could go on forever!
We only have 1 bad band. Everything else is perfect.
