23 Mark Medlock Mark Medlock

Also a winner of the German edition of Pop Idol. While he isn't really famous anymore, he has been around for a few years and a handful albums. He has an okay voice, and sung mediocre clean holiday party songs and cheesy heartbreak ballads. - Martin_Canine

24 Snoop Dogg Snoop Dogg Cordozar Calvin Broadus, Jr., known professionally as Snoop Dogg, is an American rapper and actor from Long Beach, California.

I know he is considered good and has a huge fanbase, but actually I don't really see the appeal. His raps are rather slow and he barely raises his voice, and he doesn't have that much of lyrical skills as well. So neither his lyrics nor his delivery is all too good. What he does have is a very unique voice, maybe that's what people like. He is not bad either... but not that outstanding in my opinion. - Martin_Canine

32 KISS KISS Kiss is an American hard rock band formed in New York City in January 1973 by Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons and the band's original manager, Lew Linet.

KISS are a great hard rock bands but I believe that they were the best on the Creatures of the Night album when Eric Carr was their drummer, this guy was the 80's version of John Bonham, just listen to I Love it Loud, this is pure metal and it's so badass.
People hate KISS for their well known songs but I think that everyone should listen to their full albums to really appreciate them. - IronMaidenFan666

Kiss are awesome.
Even though I don't own any of their albums, I listened to a few of them some time ago and that is really cool rock music.

Also @IronMaidenFan666: are they hated? They have a massive fanbase, positive reviews, and their music is considered a cult classic. Several rock fans like them. - Martin_Canine

38 Apecrime Apecrime ApeCrime is a German hip hop trio and YouTube comedy group consisting of Cengiz Dogrul, Andre Schiebler and Jan-Christoph Meyer that was formed in 2006. more.

YouTubers-turned-musicians who at first made fun pop rap, then changed in style to become sociocritical.
Obviously inspired by DatAdam, they lack that certain instinct of how to bring such topics up DatAdam have. While their attacks on modern society's superficiality are good at heart, they're also a bit clumsy. "You look at your cell phone" here, "all you want is likes" there. That's nowhere as gripping as DatAdam's desperate questions what society has come to and why people are so in love with themselves and with star craving.
No, ApeCrime aren't bad but they still need experience. Their fun pop was okay, but the sociocritic cyber hip hop is far from being as visceral as it needs to be. - Martin_Canine

Ruined by its poppy sound and bad singer - EliHbk
