3 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

Why did he have to make yummy. That ruined the entire “he’s so much better now” thing. Who next, Shawn Mendes going from songs like Treat You Better (my 7th worst of 2016) later to In My Blood (my 8th best of 2018) to something like Yummy itself?

Fingers crossed it won't happen same with Post Malone who I think has markedly improved from White Iverson and I Fall Apart to Circles and Take What You Want.

Purpose was a good album, but he kind of went downhill again.

4 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

First 2 albums were decent pop punk/emo pop, then they made Infinity on High and Folie a Deux and find some personality in it mixing pop punk and emo-ish lyrics with funk and pop... but after that they just made whatever they felt it was gonna give them attention
Save Rock n Roll and American Beauty/American Psycho were pretty succesful but MANIA almost kills their career, being critically panned and not giving them any single hit in the charts (except maybe Young and Menace but only for like a week)

5 Arctic Monkeys The Arctic Monkeys, otherwise known as the Death Ramps, are a British indie rock band formed in 2002 in Sheffield, England. The band consists of Alex Turner (lead vocalist, songwriter, electric and rhythm guitarist), Jamie Cook (electric and rhythm guitarist, songwriter), Matt Helders (percussionist, more.

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.

Started being post britpop and were okay at it, by Viva La Vida they started including more things to their music and making it bigger and bigger, however by their latest 4 albums they felt less creative and did a Fall Out Boy and just added what they thought it was mainstream

7 Pink Floyd Pink Floyd was an English progressive rock band formed in 1965 in London, England. They achieved international acclaim with their progressive and psychedelic music. The band consisted of 5 members - David Gilmour (Vocals and Guitar), Syd Barrett (Vocals and Guitar), Nick Mason (Drums), Roger Waters more.

Their pre-Dark Side of the Moon era was inconsistent.
Piper: Great debut album
Saucerful of Secrets: Good
Ummagumma: Bad
Atom Heart: Good
Obscured by Clouds: Meh

8 Queen Queen are an English rock band formed in 1970. Members were Freddie Mercury (Vocals and Piano), Brian May (Guitar, Vocals), Roger Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and John Deacon (Bass Guitar, Vocals). Before forming into Queen, Brian May and Roger Taylor had played together in a band named Smile. Freddie Mercury more.

The Contenders

11 Maroon 5 Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band that originated in Los Angeles, California. Before the current group was established, the original four members, Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick, formed a band known as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

Started out okay mixing pop, rock, funk and rnb but went into one of the worst downward spirals I have seen in music around the early 2010s

12 The 1975 The 1975 are an English pop-rock band originating from Manchester. The group consists of lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist Matthew "Matty" Healy, lead guitarist Adam Hann, bassist Ross MacDonald, and drummer George Daniel.

Started doing modern indie with a lot of post punk elements during their first 2 albums, but after the third one they did something really weird... trying to be experimental and mixing a lot of styles just to be considered as the new Radiohead... by their latest album they felt more like mixing just whatever the hell they made at the studio and giving an album out of it, making it extremely long and oversaturated, even critics started being aware of it by the little acclaim and success it had

13 Oasis Oasis were an English rock band formed in Manchester in 1991. Developed from an earlier group, the Rain, the band originally consisted of Liam Gallagher (vocals and tambourine), Paul "Bonehead" Arthurs, Paul "Guigsy" McGuigan, and Tony McCarroll.

Considered by many as the last big rock band, Oasis' first 2 albums were gigantic and succesful around the world, but after Be Here Now the quality of they work started decreasing and their popularity also declined, at least their last 2 studio albums were somehow decent

I'm not sure why people would consider them the last big rock band aren't Linkin Park later and bigger at least commercially. Also the Foo Fighters and Green Day would have been on at least the same level and are also critically praised somewhat.

14 Panic! at the Disco Panic! at the Disco is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2004 and featuring the current lineup of vocalist Brendon Urie, accompanied on tour by bassist Dallon Weekes, guitarist Kenneth Harris, and drummer Dan Pawlovich.

She was born on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, to Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus. Her voice type is Mezzo-Soprano and has 4 octaves. She became a teen idol starring as the more.

She was very good & consistent when she did Hannah Montana, but after that she went downhill though she got better during Malibu & truly healed with her 2020 comeback as far as apparently.

Completely agree even in the same year she has had both great and awful songs.

16 Judas Priest Judas Priest are a British heavy metal band that formed in Birmingham, England, in 1969. They are often referred to as one of the greatest metal bands of all time, and are even commonly called “The Metal Gods”, after one of the songs on their 1980 album “British Steel”. more.

Not a fan, but from what I’ve heard, they’re a bit of a roller coaster.

17 Eminem Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce more.

The only artist in the top 20 best and worst songs of all time list and I can definitely see where the voters are coming from.

there's lose yourself and then there is revival...

18 The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented more.

I’m not sure, I think they were quite consistent.

19 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. more.

I honestly think Reputation was not as bad as some people would say but in terms of individual songs definitely.

20 Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. Megadeth was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine was fired from Metallica.
