Worst Metal Bands of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland. They're mostly known for their singles like Break Stuff, My Way, My Generation, Nookie, Eat You Alive, Rollin', and Take a Look Around. They ...read more.

If we're being honest, if the title of this list were "Most Overrated Metal Bands" instead of what it is, it'd make a lot more sense. A lot of these bands aren't even bad, it's just that a lot of purists think they are because they're popular. Bands like Limp Bizkit and Babymetal are fun to listen to, Linkin Park has a lot of solid albums, BMTH aren't even a metal band anymore, and when they were, their music wasn't bad. Bands like AA, Emmure, and Attila are just geared toward a different demographic, but each of them have at one point or another released enjoyable music. Even 5FDP, who I can't stand anymore, have released enjoyable music at one point.

I hate this band so much, but not for any crazy reason that you would typically find on this website, I only hate this band cause it always feels like they put 0% of effort into their performance. The lead singer is just embarrassingly awful in his singing, their lyrics can be summed up with just the words uninspired and immature, plus the fact that they single-handedly ruined the Nu Metal genre for me. I used to feel as though I was alone with my distaste for their music, so seeing them at #1 was very reassuring on my stance.

Limp Bizkit has to be the worst nu metal band I have ever heard. They are horrible. They are trash. And let's be real you metalheads only like them because they play metal and have rapping at the same time while you guys are always online bashing rap 247 (can't you guys accept every genre for what it is? )

Nobody likes these guys. These guys suck. They have to be the worst nu metal band I have ever heard. And they're basically just a parody of metal. Just a joke.

They suck. They're everything wrong with metal music in the us. Basically since the mid 90s nearly everything released has sucked with the exception of some old favorites (Iron Maiden Judas Preist. Slayer etc) and some great stuff coming out of Europe especially bands like Nightwish. Epica. Within Temptation etc. limp Bizkit sucks. Always has sucked always will suck. And Fred Durst is an a-hole

2 Bring Me the Horizon Bring Me the Horizon is a British rock band from Sheffield, Yorkshire. Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish. They are signed to RCA Records globally and Columbia Records exclusively ...read more.

I don't mind the music as much as I hate the band in general. For one they all are in it because they wanted to be famous. The second this is the lead singer, Oliver Sykes, basically came out as being a former drug addict, but then in a interview not too long after that he stated that he didn't regret doing drugs, and he said that everyone should do drugs in some point in their lives. I used to occasionally listen to their music, but after that I've gone completely off them. I don't find how people would want to support someone who says everyone should try drugs at some point in their lives. Marilyn Manson almost had his complete career destroyed after being blamed for a school shooting that he was in no way responsible for the boys behaviour, yet some lead singer of a "metal" band can come out, tell millions of his fans that they should try drugs and people couldn't give two cents? Do you realize how many of his teenage fans would've then thought it would've been ok to go ...more

OK, half the people in my high school, we get it. You want people to think you're "rebellious" and cool because you listen to music that sounds like a duck choking on a frog while being beaten to death with an autotune machine. I guess because it sounds bad, you think it must have some hidden avant-garde value and meaning, but it's just bad. All the songs sound the same. It's as if every time BMTH went into the studio, they went "Hey guys, let's all scream random lyrics with no discernible rhythm, and then make the chorus autotuned vocals worthy of the cheesiest DIY rap song by a privileged white kid. No one's ever done that before! " This band is just so unbelievably awful that the only reason I can think of for listening to them would be either assuming that you'll start liking them if you hear enough, or maybe just for the supposed cred you get for wearing their merch.

There are only a couple of songs that I like from these guys and it was back when they were actually metal. I personally don't see Bring Me The Horizon as band, I see them as a bunch of guys being out shadowed by Ollie Sykes. Nobody cares about the other members, only Ollie and that is not how a band should be. Also their lyrics are stupid. Repetitive, dumb, recycled. Also their fan base is full of teenage girls who fancy Ollie, hardly anyone actually care about the music

Unfortunately, he's stating a paradox. On one hand he doesn't condone drug use because he became an addict. On the other, almost every concert goer experiments and doesn't become addicted. So he's saying 'if you're going to do it, make sure you know what you're in for'. He's not afraid. They say they're the next Metallica, but he didn't choose that. in my opinion.

3 Asking Alexandria Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist ...read more.

Terrible terrible band. Bands like this are why Metalcore gets a bad image. Grating screamed vocals that sound like an emo kid trying to be "br00tal" and whiny clean vocals that sound like they belong in a Fall Out Boy song.
The instrumentals are better than the vocals but they still consist of generic breakdowns a lot of times.

If you really think about it (and actually LISTEN to their music) these guys are actually pretty good. (except for their first album, which is terrible) You can't deny how unique of a voice Danny Worsnop has. Otherwise, they're just a good metalcore band.

From Death To Destiny is a Slipknot-inspired album, is very good, very mature, and Andy Worsnop also had a major problem with alcoholism. One good album doesn't mean they're good, but that album actually is, as hard as it is to believe.

Utter abomination of a band, made for teens as it's sole purpose. The music sucks, the image sucks, everything SUCKS.

4 Attila Attila is an American metalcore band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 2005. Frontman Chris Fronzak started the band in high school and, not wanting to use typical death metal terms, adopted the name from Attila the Hun, which he came across in a book.

I might just quit my job, and make it my full time profession warning people against this band. They are so bad, the have the potential to ruin music forever. Even the earliest tribal beats, the music of Motzart, the sounds of the Beatles, will all be eclipsed under the umbrella term of music - that thing that Attila ruined, and no one wants to hear sounds anymore. A whole planet of people who tore their own ears off just for the sweet silence.

This band is a disgrace to metal. It currently sits 15th, whilst Marilyn Manson, one of my favourite band sits 6th. What is wrong with you people? You clearly do not understand what good and bad music is if you put Marilyn Manson as a worse metal band than Attila. Attila is literally garbage, some of the worst music I've ever heard in my life.

So what do we have here? The worst lyrics of all time? Check. Most obnoxious and cheesy image of any band ever formed? Check. Terrible music videos that objectify women? Check. Lacklustre instrumentals that, while solid, are completely forgettable? Check. This band is seriously the worse thing ever. WHY AT NUMBER 15? Listen to "Callout" and tell me why they are decent...

I have a friend who likes Slipknot and Metallica and a bunch of other metal bands. When I heard his favourite metal band was Attila I decided to listen to them, and my god, THEY SUCK. Literally screamo garbage, bland instrumentals. I guess it should've been a warning when I found out he also liked Limp Bizkit..

5 Deicide Deicide is an American death metal band formed in 1987 by bassist and vocalist Glen Benton and drummer Steve Asheim. They are known for their blasphemous and satanic lyrics which have resulted in bans, lawsuits and criticisms from religious groups and the public. Frontman Glen Benton is also known for ...read more.

I hate Deicide. And no, its not about them hating on religion as much as its more about how this band operates. Influential? Yeah well, so was Death, Obituary, Cannibal Corpse and Morbid Angel, who are better.

Also, their music just falls flat for me and the vocals are wholly a miss for me. But my biggest issue with Deicide is the frontman, Glen Benton himself. Glen IS the band after all, and he's the reason why Deicide is terrible. He done absolutely nothing to either reinvent or innovate the band and there's nothing new to them, the lyrics are a copy-paste from one previous album after another.

I don't care if you hate Christianity and worship Satan, but at least I'd like to expect some degree of maturity and change, especially for a band that's been active for nearly 30 years.

I'm not religious or anything but I can easily say that Deicide is literally the Three Days Grace of death metal. I know it's a weird comparison but think about it. Both bands have angsty songs with almost no diversity in the music or lyrics and have been writing the same stuff for many years now. The only difference between them and TDG is that TDG isn't satanic and actually has some pretty nice members (Glen Benton is known to be a douchebag, but he is a satanist so what else would you expect? ).

This band sucks.Their music is stupid and it's just random noises with Glen Benton making random guttural noises and they recycle the same lyrical content all the time.All their songs are about how much they hate god and how they pray to Satan 666 times a day.We get it.You hate God and love Satan.Make music about something else for once.-DarkBoi-X

These guys are nothing but pho-edge. Gimmicky poser band to say the least. Dreadful by death metal standards.

6 Cannibal Corpse Cannibal Corpse is a American death metal band from Buffalo, New York, formed in 1988. The band is known for their graphic album covers, explicitly violent lyrics and song titles like "I C** Blood" The group got into mainstream after performing the song "Hammer Smashed Face" in the 1994 film Ace Ventura: ...read more.

I loathe death metal. Screamo really shouldn't be a style of music, you can barely make out the words and it just sounds awful. I'll admit, I don't mind the instrumentals from this band, there is talent hidden behind the god awful screaming that really plagues what could've potentially been good music. Then again, I doubt a band that has a song called "I c*m blood" could ever produce enjoyable music..

This needs to be in the top 10. Not only did it contribute to TONS of negative metal stereotypes, the fans are posers, they hate on any DM band that isn't gory enough for them. The lyrics are uninspired and terrible, vocals are painful to listen to, and their best song is probably the only DM song I listened to and wanted to stop listening to. Personally I'm more of a prog/melodeath fan, but even as an outsider of extreme DM, I can tell it is a bad band.

After Death disbanded, Obituary became the backbone of Death Metal, because you can actually understand what Jon Tardy screams. Cannibal Corpse are talented musicians who make dull and unintelligible dirge. They've earned their place in Death Metal, which I do respect, just not with me.

From Chuck's philosophical lyrics and sheer instrumental insanity to this... Never been a huge fan of CC, but I don't hate them either. I just don't think they're worthy of their fame, and the fact that they actually represent death metal is just stupid. Bands like Obituary should get way more credit than these guys.

7 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Formed in 1989 by frontman Marilyn Manson and Daisy Berkowitz, the group was originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids with their theatrical performances gathering a local cult following in the early 1990s. ...read more.

The only reason I am voting for marilyn manson is because they should not even be on this list. They arn't metal, they have even said so themselves. They are shock rock not metal so they don't belong hear. As for myself, I am actualy a fan of marilyn manson, of all pop mucisians out there, I think the lead singer, brian Warner's lyrics have the most meaning to them. I also like how he is not afraid to be unique but he doesn't do things just to get attention. (Most people I know have never heard of him) so yeah, they are the worst metal band because they are'nt metal.

Shouldn't even be on this list, let alone at number 6. Yeah, his looks are strange and ugly but his music is kickass. Just listen to Coma White or I Don't Like The Drugs But The Drugs Like Me. Yes, he might rely too much on shock value, but you can't deny that he is very talented. Just listen to the song Last Day On Earth, one of his more emotional, less edgy and more underrated songs which demonstrates that he does indeed have talent.

A quote from your average Manson fan... "What Marilyn manson shouldn't be on this list he his such a great singer and honestly smarter than all of you combined so this list it crap"

I think that abortion of a run-on sentence speaks to the quality and depth of this limp-wristed clown's music. Manson's music is the sonic equivalent of a 5 year old crying in a checkout lane that he didn't get the toy he wanted. Pure garbage.

Marilyn Manson is an incredible band. The band has been able to change their core sound so drastically, so quickly, and so well. The music quality was incredible, and while their newer stuff is pretty "meh," the band was incredible during their prime. People need to learn to get past the imagery and appreciate the damn music.

8 Babymetal Babymetal is a Japanese metal idol band. Their line-up consists of Suzuka Nakamoto as "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal".

To me, they is the worst music artist/band ever, even verbalising "babymetal" makes me cringe. Everything about them is repulsive - their nightcore music, glitter vomit outfits, lyrics, chipmunk vocals, tacky themes, birdbrained dance moves.
And no, I don't google them, never ever looked them up on YT because I'm not looking to be offended.
I saw/heard plenty of their "music" on TV years ago.

I honestly have a very low opinion of people who incessantly whine about trivial and avoidable things they dislike, in this case Babymetal -- heard a few songs off them and while I found them to be unstimulating for my musical taste, they didn't lead to any bad impact on my life whatsoever. The choice is in your hands to avoid things that triggers negative emotions in you but if you keep involving yourself in it with the intent to scream bloody murder over it later on then you've too much time on your hands, chill out!

I don't get the rage of this band. If anything, it only tells who's a fake metalhead from a real one. If you're a fake metalhead - you listen to this trash and consider it the "best" thing to happen for metal? Cutesy vocals on top of riffs, thundering drums and ripping bass? The hell is wrong with you?

Ronnie James Dio is rolling in his grave the more times people praise Babymetal as the second coming. Listen to Doki Doki MORNING and try to boast how proudly of a metalhead you are without getting that tingly feeling that you just might be a fraud.

This band is all flash and flare than providing any talent. I only recall one, just ONE song from this band that didn't have the cutesy vocals on it. That still wouldn't have been enough to wash the brown smear this band already has wiped over in the name of Metal.

So it isn't what is expected of metal. Big deal. I don't see J-pop as very radio-friendly. It doesn't appeal to everyone. I don't care for all of there material, but I like a few of their songs from their debut. But Metal Resistnce is one of my favorites from 2016. Also, even if you don't consider it metal, why the hell is that a reason to hate a group. Opening for Lady Gaga was an idea from the producers who represent them. Even if it is a marketing plan, it doesn't sound plastic like the top 40 does. The backing musicians and the talented vocals of Su prevent that. There new album is more metal anyway. The three girls themselves have contributed to some of the materials writing process. I think that is is sort of a gimmick, but a bit more than one. The man who writes the majority of the material seems to enjoy what he writes, as well as even helping the three get into metal. There seems to be more music involved. I think that the hate that surrounds Babymetal is ridiculous.

9 Emmure Emmure is an American metalcore band formed in 2003. Originally based in New Fairfield, Connecticut, but now residing in Queens, New York, the group has a total of seven releases, with their first public release being a 2006 EP entitled The Complete Guide to Needlework.

Why is Judas Priest on this list? Anyway Emmure blah! I like Nu metal, I like some death metal, and even viking metal but I can't stomach whatever the hell kind of metal emmure supposedly is. They are not good the singer barely does anything but says blaah for like 2 minutes says a word then blaah again... I just saved you a whole Emmure ticket. I mean in death metal there are some crazy weird growls but they play real instruments instead of a stupid computer or whatever they use in emmure. They are just a bad band! Well maybe not in this day and age because these days less real instruments you play the better a muscian you are. Makes a lot of sense right? Thanks Emmure for destrying whatever metal we have left

They aren't that bad, actually. I get it, their songs aren't exactly the most creative or technical or whatever and I get that many "metalheads" are annoyed by the constant breakdowns and that their frontman looks like a swaggot, but I find some of their songs rather catchy. Take this from a guy who listens to EVERYTHING from alt metal to black metal & death metal, Emmure aren't as bad as everyone says

Fake tuff guy hardcore? Even real tuff guy hardcore makes me want to vomit. Then put on my fur coat, have a smoke, have a drink and then eat a steak hot off the grill to fill the empty spot.

Terrible. Just terrible. It's the absolute worst thing ever when bands pretend to be something they're not. Emmure try to be heavy and hardcore, but really come across as wannabes. Awful vocals also.

10 Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture of Alternative ...read more.

Yes, Linkin Park is no longer metal, but they still SUCK. They always have, when they were "metal", they SUCKED, and now when they're not, they still do. Complete trenders and sellouts, making music only when its trendy and popular. If classic musical was popular at the time, they would be doing classical. Not to mention they look like complete moronic chromosome-lacking imbeciles. After BVB and 1Erection worst band in the galaxy.

The Most Over-rated Band Of All Time. Yeah, Linkin park is good enough to listen to, but they're not AWESOME, INCREDIBLE or something. Eventually they become BORING, and you can't listen to them anymore. Soulfly and Fear Factory aren't boring, one can listen to their music again and again. People go crazy about Linkin Park, but there's really no reason for this.

They're just a bunch of posers. They've sold their souls to the producers and the similar fags. When it was time when Nu-Metal ruled the scene, they played Nu-metal, but when it had gone, they'd changed their style into something more pop-sounding. And look at their lyrics! Now take random pop song lyrics and compare it to Linkin Park's. They've not much in difference, yeah? They've never been a nu-metal band. They are pop band. Distorted guitars and screaming doesn't matter. They write songs about common and popular issues, and not their own issues. That's how the pop bands act. Linkin Papk can be a decent pop band, but please don't say again that they're a metal band. They have never been metal and probably they won't be.

Only metal band on here that is NOT absolutely awesome. I mean, Slipknot is good, BFMV is awesome, I've never heard of Brokencyde, Skid Row is classic, I've never heard of Cradle of Filth, Lamb of God and Godsmack are both awesome, and Disturbed and A7X are just incredible.

Linkin Park is unbelievably overrated.

The Newcomers

? Type O Negative Type O Negative was an American gothic/doom metal band formed in Brooklyn, New York City in 1989. Their lyrical emphasis on themes of romance, depression, and death resulted in the nickname "The Drab Four".
The Contenders
11 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch, often shortened to Five Finger or Death Punch, also abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is an American Alternative Metal/Alternative Rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

Butt-rock for whiny try-hard man-children. Every riff is the same, the lyrics sound like they were written by an edgy middle schooler attempting to do a one-sided rap battle, every musician involved is so unbelievably weak and being "patriotic" is about the most un-metal thing I can think of. They are the worst metal band of all time, definitely in the top 5 worst rock bands of all time and up there for worst band of all time across all genres. How a nu-metal band is making a profit after 2010 I will never understand.

They need to change the band name, seriously. Because the title Five Finger Death Punch seems to be a Hardcore Metal, Nu-Metal band. But they are not really like that. They did a lot of soft songs and that's the way this band is known. They should really change the title to maybe "Five Ways To Freedom". They did good song but the title just don't fit with the band.

5FDP has basically set the standard for "poorest song writing" imaginable. Every riff is recycled, the lyrics are some of the worst I have ever heard and the members are such narcissistic jerks. Not to mention possibly having the dumbest name of all time! They are only as big as they are because of their "we support the troops" gimmick.

Some of the blandest, most repetitive music I've ever heard, from any genre. Every single song is banal lyrics, (which range from babbling about how tough you are to wimpy uplifting ballads to droning on about the American military) generic riffs and the same exact drum pattern on every song. Garbage band.

12 Design the Skyline

Bands like this are why Metalcore and Deathcore get a bad reputation. This band is literally just just emos and scene trying to be brutal. - DarkBoi-X

Quite possibly the band with the least structure in all of popular music. The electronic tracks are the only highlights of their one album, and even they are so uninteresting by instrumental standards.

No talent at all. Just a bunch or strange noises.

Any band with the verb the noun trend for a name is always garbage no exceptions

13 iwrestledabearonce

Nightwish, epica, evanescence, within temptation are better metal bands fronted be girls than this bull, this aren't deathcore, carnifex and whitechapel are better deathcore

I can't bear seeing all of these great bands on this list (pun only slightly intended)

Lol IWABO is actually good... They are just super experimental and comedy weird

No, you guys never wrestled a bear.

14 Brokencyde Brokencyde is an American crunkcore musical group from Albuquerque, New Mexico, founded in 2006. The group's lineup consists of David "Se7en" Gallegos and Michael "Mikl" Shea, and musically are one of the founding groups in the crunkcore genre, which is crunk hip-hop with screamed vocals.

12? 12? NUMBER ONE SURE

Limp Bizkit: is more rap than another thing 3/10
Black Veil Brides: Seen emo but some skngs are pretty bad ass 7/10
Linkin Park: Aren't metal anymore and still been a decent band 9/10
Bring Me The Horizon: Actually are better 7/10
Nickelback:? /10 I don't hear them
Marilyn Manson: the beautiful people is the sickness 6/10
Iwrestedblablabla: Are deathcore or pornocore? Whatever, Taylor Swift are more metal than they 2/10
Poison: some catchy but stupid at the same time 5/10
Avenged Sevenfold: AFTERLIFE is the best song in the world 9/10
Emmure: Are heavy and catchy 6/10
Hollywood Undead: another crappy rap band 4/10
Brokencyde:... WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? A ELECTRO BAND TALKING ABOUT SEX CALLED METAL? 0/10 OH YEAH, WORSER THAN ONE DIRECTION AND JONAS BROTHERS FOR SURE

I voted for this band as it is not even metal. I mean Lamb of God, Cradle of Filth, Skid Row, hell all these bands could at least be considered as metal. But just listen to Brokencyde. There are hardly any elements in their music that even resembles metal. The closest thing that even makes them resemble metal is the screamed vocals, and they are still done in the wrong technique.

While I don't mind Limp Bizkit or Nickelback, I simply cannot STAND Brokencyde. What they do is pop music with screams to attract the scene kids. They are an absolute disgrace to metal and should never have seen the light of day.

The only reason they aren't higher is because this list was made 6 years ago (2011) and Brokencyde lost fame in 2010. But they're the worst band I have ever heard

15 Waking the Cadaver

This band is awful. I'm a fan of brutal music, but no. Their music is just bad. Not to mention that in their first album, the drummer was terrible. He couldn't keep a beat if his life depended on it. Their second album is a big improvement but it still sounds terrible. They are the worst deathcore band in existence

I can comprehend death metal vocals just fine, but waking the cadaver is incomprehensible. Not to mention the drummer can't play

Scrap my previous comment. These days, they have actually improved tremendously. Their first album was god awful. They're second album was still bad with a slightly improved sound. It's their latest album Real Life Death that impressed me. Now they're still not the best (obviously) but they're not as bad anymore as they initially were, and that says a lot

This sounds like the noise a bear would make if it was stuffed inside a washing machine.

16 Anal C*** Anal C*** was an American grindcore band founded by vocalist Seth Putnam in 1988 in Newton, Massachusetts. The band is known for their highly offensive lyrics which included themes of misogyny, homophobia, racism, Nazism, antisemitism, and schadenfreude (ridicule of the unfortunate). Their music has ...read more.

Jesus. I understand the sick humor, but humor doesn't make a good band. The vocals are the worst I've ever heard come out of a male (Yoko Ono takes the spot for females and the spot for all time), music is only 2 minutes at most, you get my point. To those who consider this cancer music, you must be deaf or stupid.

People need to understand that not only is this a joke with lyrics, but with music as well. They try to be bad, which is what makes them funny.

I'm not even kidding they are a real band look them up, I can promise you that these guys are even worse that any of these bands!

This band is supposed to be a joke and they are. I think they're hilarious but they are definitely musically challenged

17 Hollywood Undead Hollywood Undead is an American rap rock band from Los Angeles, California, United States. They released their debut album, Swan Songs, on September 2, 2008, and their live CD/DVD Desperate Measures, on November 10, 2009. Their second studio album, American Tragedy, was released April 5, 2011. All of ...read more.

I don't understand why they are compared to Linkin Park. LP has talent, and say what you want, but they're not posers. Hollywood Undead might be the worst band ever. Crappy music, crappy look, it's the complete package of what bad bands should be like. I saw "Swan Songs" cover and thought they were like those bank robbers from the beginning of the Dark Knight movie. So, I thought theyd be cool. Nope. Never been more wrong in my life. Listen to real music like Linkin Park, or even From Ashes to New. WAY better.

Ladies and gentlemen I am pleased to say the worst band on earth is here. For years hollywood undead have made awful music and been the worst SLIPNOT ripoff ever. My 10 year old sister likes them, I try to explain to her that they are are cheesey as hell. They have retarded masks they HOLD with their HANDS and make garbage music.

Metal with rap is the worst! Besides Hollywood Undead are some other prime examples: Suicidal Tendencies, Korn (at times), Slipknot and Rage Against The Machine.

To the person who said rage against the machine is good, they are bland trash who do nothing but scream rap like tekashi into a mic with a bassline that seems like it was invented by a 5 year old.

18 Blood On the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor was an American scene duo currently consisting of Dahvie Vanity and Fallon Vendetta that formed in 2006. Former members include Jayy von Monroe (2009-2016) and Garrett Ecstasy (2009). All of them provided vocals to the project. ...read more.

Blood On The Dance Floor is not metal! This band is just a bunch of idiots who create terrible music! I have never hated a band so much in my whole life and I feel like to listen to Metallica, Aerosmith, Queen, Bruce Springsteen, AC/DC and many other great rock/metal legends rather than listen to these sick jerks! They do stupid songs that have nothing to do with anything whatsoever and Dahvie Vanity is the worst person you will ever meet in your life. I'm dead serious! Go see a better person rather than him, and also he can't sing for crap!

I started to hate this band after reading some controversies about this sicko and I heard a few songs by them, one with Joel Madden from Good Charlotte. Joel was good, the sicko not! Their songs are so disgusting and I would just vomit on the floor after hearing their stuff if somebody stupid told me to! Plus, their band name has nothing to do with Michael Jackson's song of the same name (Michael Jackson's song is very good by the way! ), ...more

WHAT IS THIS BAND?! First, putting a Scene duo on a metal band list makes me cringe just because of the word 'scene', and if this is metal, no wonder people who listen to stuff as clean as iron maiden and metallica are considered satanists. Seriously, if people decide to consider them metal, they should be number 1 on this list. They are the worst!

They are the worst band they don't even have any metal really in it. This is only my opinion so no one get offended. They are the worst in my opinion because they have like pop always in it. It's always girly and I think BOTDF is a girl band.

Get this away from me. This isn't even metal but it deserves to be number 1. These guys are pedophiles. But people shouldn't listen to these animals. They deserve to be rotting in hell

19 Bullet For My Valentine Bullet for My Valentine are a Welsh metalcore band from Bridgend, formed in 1998. The band is composed of Matthew Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Paget (lead guitar, backing vocals), Michael Thomas (drums) and Jamie Mathias (bass guitar). Former members include Nick Crandle and Jason James; ...read more.

I used to love this band. Two years later, its dried out for the most part.

Bullet For My Valentine aren't bad, and they do have some genuinely good songs, but in all honesty, they don't stand out much outside of Metalcore, already a genre with a polarizing reputation. They're okay overall, with some good stuff and some mediocre material here and there. And lastly, most of their content isn't Metal, and the band's frontman even outright stated that Bullet For My Valentine was a "Hard Rock band with Metal influences".

Why is Bullet For My Valentine in this list? They are NOT posers, they are a great melodic metalcore band and they have never pretended to be something that they are not, so I really don't get why you call them posers when there are like 100000 bands that are 100000 times more poser than Bullet For My Valentine.

It's kind of hard to call these guys bad, at least with respect to their albums Fever and Venom. The others...well, that's up to personal opinion, but I don't feel the earlier stuff is very good, especially vocally. Maybe it's just poor memory, but I seem to recall them being whiny back when, and that's usually a dealbreaker for me.

Bullet for my valentine? Really? ? They're a awesome band, one of my favorites. And they're not even metal you douchbags, its called metalcore A.K. A post hardcore. And they're ranked #1 on best metalcore bands so shut up!
Linkin park is epic. Never deserve to be 'worst' tittle on any category, even if they changes they're genre.

20 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). ...read more.

Another band I used to love before getting dried up and moving past other Metal musicians.

That said, A7X is a very polarizing band. Their first two albums were rather poor to say the least, and Hail to the King is normally picked on by everyone as a plagiarizing album (Which yeah, I can understand), but the rest of their material is admittedly not bad. They have some solid stuff from their third, fourth and fifth albums and The Stage is honestly a brave attempt in trying something different, although I'm personally not into it.

Worst metal band I have ever seen. They are hopeless. The vocalist doesn't sound good. It gives like a horror sound. Moreover, the music is the worst ever and sound like funny when people hears. The lead guitarist cannot play an attractive music.
The music is very funny.
Studio music gives clear voice and cool music but makes no sense and doesn't make any interest. It gives only irritating and overacts the way they are. Their concert music always flops and doesn't make sense at all.
Vocal, music and about everything is hopeless and sounds like a crap.

"I hate Avenged Sevenfold because 3 songs on one of their albums rips of Metallica." Or another tired elitist quote:

"If Modern Metal, it is bad and fans are retarded."

And, the obvious hipster quote:

"They're WAAY overrated FANS SHOULD DIE"

Come on. Metal is metal, new or old. 'but your just a sheep LOL'

THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS! WHO THE HELL PICKED A7X AS ONE OF THE WORST METAL BANDS?! Listen to their self titled album and Nightmare/Hail to the King. I still haven't heard a bad album by them, so person who put them on the list, I'd like to punch you in the face and kick your brains in thank you very much

21 Cattle Decapitation Cattle Decapitation is an American Deathgrind band from San Diego, California formed in 1996. Cattle Decapitation's songs protest the mistreatment and consumption of animals, the abuse of the environment and touch subjects such as misanthropy and genocide of the human race. Much of their music is based ...read more.

I cannot believe the person who put Cattle Decapitation on this list. They are the best death metal band in the world.

I kind of understand why they're on here but they're a pretty good band, especially The Harvest Floor.

Death metal isn't my cup of tea but they are good for the genre and are absolutely brutal

I can't think of many bands this heavy who play in E# standard. That's pretty damn impressive.

22 Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth are a British extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles.

I'll agree that they aren't that great of a band, but a few songs are decent. And anyone who thinks they're a black metal band is a retard. Paul Allender even said that they've never tried to be a black metal band. They're more of a gothic metal band.

This band is so utterly cancerous on a cosmic level. This band is IDIOTIC so much, making feces, while telling people it's bloody "black metal". This band makes me so puke and I wish Danny Filth gets stabbed in the head, 23 times.

Those stupid banshee farts (screams) have ruined my taste of black metals once I found out what genre they were. Dimmu Borgir don't do them, neither do real black metal bands like venom and bathory.

"Look at me! I have a pentagram necklace and wear black clothing! " That wasn't thought provoking when I was in high school 14 years ago, and it's still yawn-inspiring.

23 Chelsea Grin

Generic Deathcore band that tries to be as br00tal as possible.

The reason I hate deathcore(in general), idiotimoronic core for posers and for br00tal "metalheads" Complete and utter crap.

I love this band

Whoever says they are crap is a CREWCABANGER! A STUPID ONE FOR SURE

24 Anaal Nathrakh Anaal Nathrakh are a British extreme metal band formed in 1999 in Birmingham, England. They are currently signed to Metal Blade Records.

Their song Pandemonic Hyperblast is one of the worst songs I have heard in my life, if not the worst.

They should be #1. They suck so horribly!

25 Suicide Silence Suicide Silence is an American deathcore band from Riverside, California. Formed in 2002, the band has released four full-length studio albums, one EP and eleven music videos.

Suicide silence is possibly a the worst band ever. Firstly they are just trying way too hard to be death metal, when their growls just sound like the singer has a lougie in his throat and they look to emo/scene/douchy to ever be hardcore, Second, they inspired all these stupid deathcore/ metalcore bands there are now, like Black veil Brided and waking the cadaver.

Don't you mean thy art is murder?! Suicide Silence are the kings of death metal and didn't ripoff anybody! These guys know how to rock out with death core sound that will give u a headache. Suicide silence - death core thy art is murder - black deathcore.

Suicide Silence I thought were creative. And lol... People are saying they ripped off their screaming style, what?!?! You're giving the band crap for their screaming, and Mitch was voted number 1 for his screaming abilities. This band rocks I don't know who you are. R.I.P Mitch

Other bands here are worse, but I don't consider a lot of them to be metal, but I do this band, so I voted here. Mitch Licker was one of the worst vocalists and lyricists in metal, although I'm not glad of his death.
