Top Ten Most Irrelevant Music Artists of 2017


The Top Ten

1 Psy Psy Park Jae-sang, better known by his stage name Psy, stylized PSY, is a South Korean singer, songwriter, record producer and rapper.

I legitimately forgot about the guy till I saw this list, so yeah. - cjWriter1997

Bad one-hit wonder whose one hit was utter trash even when it came out. Utterly irrelevant beyond being a snapshot of our vacuous culture at the time. If I was Tim-Bernes Lee and saw that my creation would lead to this doofus getting popular, I would have thrown in the towel already. - Mrveteran

He's stayed enough of his popularity, he's now backtracked to standard once again but he's making another song this year - Neonco31

You shouldn't measure non-US artists on a US scale. He is South Korean, and there each of his albums since 2006 entered the Top Ten, and he had a number one hit in 2017.
Foreign artists often have a big career in their home countries. To call Nena a one hit wonder over here will get you the "you lived under a stone for the last 30 years, right? " look. And I bet it's the same with Psy us South Korea. - Martin_Canine

2 LMFAO LMFAO LMFAO was an American hip hop-electronic dance music duo consisting of uncle and nephew Redfoo and SkyBlu.

LMFAO's been spilt since 2012. Why are they even on a negative list based in 2017? - Mumbizz01

Wait, LMFAO got split? Wow, just goes to show how irrelevant they really are these days. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

No, they are NOT irrelevant! How come Harry Styles has a #1 album? They're making their marks as solo artists

I wouldn't say irrelevant. The members who launched solo careers all got their songs to the hot 100. - ProPanda

Gone and will eventually be forgotten. Thank God. Hopefully these tweens will start listening to some good music now to fill that void. Maiden anyone? - Mrveteran

She still has a career? Am I living in the Twilight Zone? - Mrveteran

Haven't heard much of anything from Britney these days, have you?

Actually, she's kind of not. I keep seeing her on those celebrity news sites. Apparently, her neice had a disease (cancer of something to do with her heart, I don't know), and she's dating this Australian bodybuilder.
She's also been in/still is in some beef with Taylor Swift (I forgot who the exact celeb was) and they're fighting about/over something, and Britney used a Bible quote over Twitter to respond the the female celeb's comments.
