Top 10 Most Ignorant and Absurd Music Comments On TheTopTens


The Top Ten

1 "Rock is a lot faster than metal."

This would be my number one. I was absolutely stunned at the stupidity in this comment - ryanrimmel

Yeah The Beatles are Faster than Slayer (Sarcasm) - christangrant

My Jeffery0206 account wasn't musically accurcate thankfully I have more knowledge than when I was started. - BoredJeff02

It's like you would say a snail is a lot faster than a cheetah. - somekindofaguy

2 "Why does everyone like metal? It's just some satanic dudes screaming about burning churches. You should listen to some good Christian music like Justin Beiber, One Direction, and Nikki Minaj. Not that satanist crap like Metallica, Korn, and Slayer."

This is so funny! Lol! I can't stop laughing! How are Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj, and One Direction "good Christian artists"?! Lol! They aren't even gospel, and Nicki and Justin are way too bad role models to make Christian music. Christian music has morals. - AnimeDrawer

This comment is just plain cringy. Because every metal musician is a Satanist who "screams about burning churches", right? And anyway, I'd like to know how Justin Bieber, One Direction, and Nicki Minaj are "good Christian music"... - Element119

This comment just shows what kind of people hate metal, LOL. Completely ignorant. - Metal_Treasure

This is wrong on SO MANY WAYS! First off, what's labelled as "Christian Music" has got nothing to do with Christianity aside from the artists personal beliefs. If you want actual Christian artists, try Laura Story or a band called Addison Road. Heck, even Skillet and RED would make the list.

And as for "Satanist crap", none of the bands mentioned have got anything to do with Satanism (Except Slayer on some occasions and even then, its out of lyrical and conceptual exploration rather than expressing a belief). There are Satanic bands true, but they do NOT define an entire genre. Not to mention there are many Metal bands that express Christianity as a positive force. - CrimsonShark

3 "Garage-band material" - about Blind Guardian

Sure, I guess every garage-band employs full symphonic orchestras, complex progressive compositions and complex overlapping vocal harmonies. - Metal_Treasure

And the one who wrote this even added Blind Guardian to my list "Top Ten Garage Rock Bands" how can be someone such biased? - somekindofaguy

What! who said that? - say10

@say10 RE "What! who said that? "
A visitor - the most obnoxious, most aggressive and, unfortunately, the most frequent visitor of this site. We call him "the troll" because he is one. He wrote probably over 1,000 dumb yet offensive comments only on my lists (because he hates metal but I make metal lists). Most of them got deleted by Admin because they were troll comments of the type that aimed at starting internet fights for no reason. And contained verbal bullying.
The best part: "the troll" is like 70 yo. Trolling the internet at this age... - Metal_Treasure

4 "Metal music is not a sub genre of rock."

God I cringe at looking at that comment because it's a old Jeffery0206 comment I had no idea why I was in this damn mindset... - BoredJeff02

I love how the author defends this claim to death, but never gave one reason to support it. No reasons, no sources, no credibility - ryanrimmel

I didn't think it was, is it not? I see how it is but never though about it. 10/2/17 - EliHbk

It, technically is. It's hard rock, but heavier. - naFrovivuS

5 "No skills at all!" - about Adam Lambert

Sure, that's why Queen hired him to sing Freddie's songs live! Because they needed somebody with "no skills at all"... (sarcasm) - Metal_Treasure

Right on. Queen really has no good reason to hire a talented singer - ryanrimmel

6 "Writing your own songs doesn't define talent"

Wow. What's next? Singing on key doesn't define singing talent? I mean, how far somebody's biases can go...
The "insightful" comment I added to this list was written again but that 70 yo visitor we all know as "the troll". He isn't only a troll and cyberbully - he also wrote some of the dumbest comments on this site.
He wrote this on the item - Led Zeppelin (list - Most Overrated Hard Rock Artists) - Metal_Treasure

7 "Guns N' Roses is a metal band not hard rock"

Very common misconception. I wouldn't say its dumb, its just wrong. Its like saying that tomatoes are vegetables - ryanrimmel

Even I know the difference! - Britgirl

The truth is: they are hard rock and not metal.
On top of that, this insightful comment on Guns N' Roses is placed in the Led Zeppelin comment section! - Metal_Treasure

I'm not surprised on this one - they're very heavy hard rock. - somekindofaguy

8 "Ok name me one good metal song why because there are no good metal songs"

Octavarium - Dream Theater
I've said enough. - naFrovivuS

Enter Sandman - Metallica
One - Metallica
Holy Wars...The Punishment Due - Megadeth
Ace Of Spades - Motörhead
Floods - Pantera
War Pigs - Black Sabbath
Cowboys From Hell - Pantera
Master Of Puppets - Metallica
Eye Of The Beholder - Metallica
Bad Company - Five Finger Death Punch
Fade To Black - Metallica
Atlas, Rise - Metallica
Hallowed By Thy Name - Iron Maiden
Painkiller - Judas Priest
Holy Diver - Dio
And Many More Good Metal Songs - Du

9 "Megadeth invented thrash metal"

Wow that's totally incorrect Venom invented Thrash Metal heck even Metallica and Slayer invented more than Megadeth did - christangrant

And every other metal subgenre. - somekindofaguy

LOL, yes. Very similar to Black Sabbath fans - Black Sabbath invented all metal subgenres, including death metal, black metal, power metal, prog metal... LOL - Metal_Treasure

Megadeth fans often act like the Black Sabbath fans - both fanbases tend to say some really cringeworthy things. I've read many times that Black Sabbath invented all metal subgenres - from death metal to black metal, prog metal, power metal,... - Metal_Treasure

10 "Freddie Mercury was good, but definitely not one of the best rock singers of all time"

I think this is sort of subjective. Just saying.

Freddie mercury was the best singer. even if he isn't on top of my favorite singer. but he's a very talented singer - zxm

@visitor RE "I think this is sort of subjective. Just saying."
Not really. It's subjective only at the level of "like-dislike" - whether somebody likes or dislikes a singer's voice and genre s/he sings. I mean, people who don't like metal wouldn't appreciate even the greatest metal singers.
But it's actually sort of objective at the level of "good-bad" singer - to say if a singer is good or bad you have to make a breakdown and you see who's the better singer. Breakdowns clearly show the vocal abilities and Freddie beats all rock singers in a breakdown, i.e. he's the best. Example - Freddie VS Robert Plant:
1 Power - Freddie (i.e. Freddie voice is more powerful)
2 Range - Freddie (i.e. Freddie's range is bigger)
3 Volume Control - Freddie (i.e. Freddie's volume control is better)
4 Sustain - Freddie
5 Pitch - tie
6 Endurance - Freddie
7 Projection - Freddie
(you do this for about 20 criteria and see who does these things better, in this case Freddie takes ...more - Metal_Treasure

If you must insist on a computer-like analysis of this sort, then surely an opera singer like Luciano Pavarotti would beat Freddie Mercury. - Crwth

The Newcomers

? This is possibly the worst death metal song I've ever heard. It sounds awful and there's no feeling to it at all. It's disgraceful to be called music - About Raining Blood by Slayer

1st of all it isn't Death Metal 2nd, No Feeling at all uh wrong it gives you a feeling of something called ADRENALINE and 3rd, It's not disgraceful to music because it was considered by many to be one of the best Thrash songs of all time

List Worst Guitar Hero Songs (a very bad list I might add) - christangrant

? "They began the grunge music, they are grunge, they should be number 1, shows how many morons there are that they're not. To even vote for the Alice in Chains makes you a moron, not as dumb as the 3% that voted for the Melvins and their back stabbing..."

I couldn't post the whole comment so heres the rest of it the part that made me put this on the list
"But still to vote for anyone before voting for Nirvana shows you lack of an I.Q".
So apparently everyone who votes for anything but Nirvana on that list is a moron, once again a reason why Nirvana is so overrated and they didn't begin grunge music Green River Did so if anything the person who made this comment is a moron who lacks musical knowledge
List Best Grunge Bands item: Nirvana - christangrant

The Contenders

11 "I heat Jackie Evan Cho I didn't even know who she was katy is the best" - about Jackie Evancho and Katy Perry

"I Heat Jackie Evan Cho" just cracks me up whenever I see it. The commentator has no basic knowledge about Jackie Evancho, which already defeats the intention of this comment. Also, "was"? Did Jackie Evancho pass away at one point? Its fine if you like Katy Perry, but before you make a comment expressing any area of distaste towards certain music artists, have something constructive to at the very least make your comment presentable, let alone have a good point. - CrimsonShark

The "best" comment ever - you know nothing about a singer but already hate (heat? ) her. And you can even say who's better!
I'm not their fan but I listen to everything just to be informed. - Metal_Treasure

Jackie Evan Cho is likely a better singer than Jackie Evancho. - naFrovivuS

I'm pretty sure It's by a 13 yo biased Katy fangirl.
I admit I wrote such stupid comment as this when I was 12-13. - somekindofaguy

12 "he is not qualified to carry Jim Morrison, Mick Jagger, or Elvis Presley's luggage" - about Freddie Mercury

I totally agree with this statement. Sorry, but I find Freddie's voice to be nondescript. Jim, Mick, and Elvis are unmistakable. - Crwth

This statement is totally wrong - Freddie Mercury is able to sing all songs by these 3 singers but not vice versa.
Also, unfortunately Mick Jagger and Jim Morrison even sing out of tune... very often.
The comment was written by "the troll" (a certain visitor we all know) on the list Top 10 Most Overrated Singers In Rock. - Metal_Treasure

13 "an addled burnout" - about Ronnie James Dio

Laughable. The guy who wrote it is a metal hater and anonymous troll. I guess he confused Ozzy with Dio because this insightful statement was part of a comment on Heaven and Hell by Black Sabbath. He didn't even know this was a Dio song but bothered to comment. - Metal_Treasure

It annoys me how you assume every comment you disagree with is written by a troll. Yes they may be stupid but it's not necessarily a troll - _Jack_

@_Jack_ RE "It annoys me how you assume every..."
It isn't what you think. I'm not assuming, I know exactly who wrote certain anonymous comments. He is a real troll and several people on this site know who he is and we can recognize his comments among millions of other comments.
I bet you would be annoyed even more if this particular troll and cyberbully was visiting each and every of your lists to write factually inaccurate yet insulting comments just because he hates what you like.
Oh, and excuse me, are you telling me that I have to agree that Dio is "an addled burnout"?
In fact, it was you who was assuming and this is annoying because you probably don't know anything about this "visitor" who is actually a cyberbully. But people who often make metal lists know his style very well. - Metal_Treasure

14 "Ugly, fat, can't sing" - about Adele

She's a big lady but has a pretty face. And who cares if she can sing like that? Adele definitely CAN sing. Again, I'm not her fan but I'm not deaf.
And I'm not biased (unlike some metal haters who refuse to admit that there are great singers in metal). - Metal_Treasure

15 "I think she deserves to be in top 20 at least. I mean she's good." - about Nicki Minaj

It's their opinion if they like it, I mean I personally think she's getting better with her latest single - Neonco31

List - "Best Female Singers of the 21st Century" - Metal_Treasure

Not stupid or ignorant, just an opinion - _Jack_

16 "Metallica are just overrated! They are not even near AC/DC and I'm a Metallica fan but still AC/DC were the ONES that gave metal a whole new dimension!"

I can't blame the author, it's a common misconception. And I agree that Metallica is overrated. A huge part of their fan base can only name about 4 songs. Plus they haven't really put out any good material since 91 - ryanrimmel

AC/DC isn't even metal how can one confuse AC/DC with metal? - BoredJeff02

Metallica being overrated is true - EliHbk

I imagine they have influenced some metal bands though - _Jack_

17 "she's got an ugly voice" - about Adele

I'm not surprised - the author of this comment thinks that Kanye West, Chris Brown and Jason Derulo are the singers with the best talent/voice of All Time! - Metal_Treasure

Adele is extremely talented, her music just bores me - ryanrimmel

That's not true. You may not like her voice, but you can't deny that Adele has talent. - lovefrombadlands

18 "What? Please! Dave Ellefson is a damn keyboardist, simpletons!"

Hey this comment is joking obviously. - SoldierOfFortune

This comment goes hand in hand with another one:
"You're all wrong. He's the vocalist for Black Flag."
When I read these comments I wrote:
"@visitors, the correct answer is - he's a bassist (Megadeth)."
And I even added an image.
By the way, this happened on the list "Best Metal Guitarists"! LOL. There aren't guitarists among them. - Metal_Treasure

19 "kurt cobain is definitely, without doubt, the best singer of any GENRE, grunge or not!"

Yup, most Grunge "fans" literally worship Kurt Cobain, even though his lyrics look like they were written by a rebellious 13 year old girl.

A lot of these grunge fans listen to nirvana, Alice in chains, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam. They've probably never heard of The Melvins, Mother Love Bone, or Green River (The creators of Grunge.) - ryanrimmel

As much as I respect Nirvana, the other Grunge titans have superior vocalists. Hell, Breaking Benjamin and Three Days Grace have a better vocalist than Kurt Cobain, which is surprising considering both bands cite Nirvana as a major influence. - CrimsonShark

OK, Kurt is cool but he isn't even the best grunge singer. At least Chris Cornell and Layne Staley are better, that's for sure. And there are also better singers outside grunge. - Metal_Treasure

Oh please, he probably isn't the best in GRUNGE. I myself prefer Chris Cornell and Eddie Vedder. - naFrovivuS

20 "How did such an addled burnout ever put seven words together?" - about Ronnie James Dio

How do I know an anonymous comment was written by a certain "visitor"? It's factually inaccurate but attacks the metal community - fans and great musicians. Basically, a definition of troll comment - it's goal is simply to get an angry response and start pointless internet fights. - Metal_Treasure

Well, I already added "an addled burnout" but then I decided that the entire sentence should be here. Yeah, this was written by an ignorant metal hater who confused Dio with Ozzy. - Metal_Treasure
