Top 10 Mediocre Bands We Liked as Teens

Ya ever went through a phase of liking a certain band in high school? Then once you got into college you simply did not care for that band anymore? I bet we all have. This is a list of bands that aren't really that unique or remarkable yet we listened to anyway during our teen years. Bands that haven't aged well over the years.

If you still like these bands then great. Nothing wrong with that at all. This list is just my personal opinion.

In the End is a good song, but that's all. - somekindofaguy

Lol I never liked this big time gimmick. - Ananya

Ooh boy. This band has the biggest love-hate relationship with me. I was a HUGE fan back then but now not so much. I still enjoy them but it's a constant struggle between are they still really great to me or just one of those bands I liked then but are kind of meh to me now. I constantly go back and forth with this lol

Also thanks for the little shoutout Metal_Treasure. That was one of the comments where I went full music snob. - cjWriter1997

Great band actually but they are not the best band ever. - IronMaidenFan666

Metal band my ass, soft alternative rock band, people obsessed with this band because a woman is the singer... - somekindofaguy

Amy Lee's voice is a miracle let alone their entire body of work which is brilliant. They have zero bad songs. Nonsense! - mood333

Their Metalcore stuff is really overrated - christangrant

But their self titled album isn't Metalcore though I agree that it's their best album. I'm mainly talking about Waking the Fallen (Their 2nd album) its not as good as people make it out to be its Meh it has some great tracks (I Won't See You Tonight Unholy Confessions Second Heartbeat) but other than those few its meh i don't see what makes it one of the best Metalcore albums when albums by Trivium and Killswitch Engage are better - christangrant
