Most Annoying Rock/Metal Bands

This is the list of all those smelly little bands with most annoying songs, members and specially fan-bases.

The Top Ten

1 Linkin Park Linkin Park Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members include Chester Bennington (vocals), Mike Shinoda (rapping vocals, pianist), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture more.

This band is extremely repetitive generic guitar riffs, boring lyrics and downright mediocre singing. This band gets appraised way too much. At best this band is ok but not like top notch stuff to me. Seriously though Green Day, Foo Fighters and Shinedown don't annoy me as much as this horrendous band does.

How is linkin park annoying you need to listen to numb and in the end

This band is and always has been annoying. I barely stand to listen to even one of there songs. I understand that many people enjoy them and I respect that, however I cannot stand them.

I love this band very much and this band is not borring it is rock band

Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.

They're one of the best bands ever! But they get annoying after awhile.

I totally agree with this list what is so good about A7X anyways?

They are ok for a while but they get annoying if you listen to them constantly

3 Limp Bizkit 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.

I have to say their guitar player Wes Borland ain't bad. But Fred Durst is the least talented person in music business ever. No doubt about that.

By the way I agree that Marilyn Manson should not appear on this list. Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals are two damn fine records. Even though the more recent albums - I don't know.

Linkin Lark gets on my nerves from time to time, the only thing annoying about Avenged Sevenfold is their fanbase, Slipknot is the same as A7X, but with a less annoying fanbase, I haven't heard enough CoB to consider them annoying, Bullet For My Valentine is AWESOME, Disturbed is good except when the singer goes "Awk, awk", Jonas Brothers aren't even rock, Marilyn Manson isn't quite as annoying as Limp Bizkit, I've never heard any songs by Bring Me the Horizon, but I actually cringe when I listen to Limp Bizkit's cover of Behind Blue Eyes.

Sure they're not metal but way way way worse than most of these bands, they deserve the number one spot

My friend had there album and was playing it in his car. I was utterly appalled by the so-called " music ".. should be labeled "trash"

They are just such an annoying band! I mean, no offense to people who like them, but they suck. They are weird emos. Nothing compared to most Metal and rock bans.

Formed in 2004, the group currently consists of vocalist Oliver Sykes, guitarist Lee Malia, bassist Matt Kean, drummer Matt Nicholls, and keyboardist Jordan Fish.

The Contenders

The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One more.

Twenty One Pilots?! More like Twenty One Losers! First of all, they're not even rock nor metal cause they don't have a guitarist and a bassist. Second of all, all their songs sound the same and they're not even creative at all! I love creative bands like Gorillaz, Queen, Pearl Jam, Guns N Roses and Alice in Chains! These bands put effort into their songs unlike Twenty One Losers! Finally the drumming is fake and Tyler Joseph voice sounds like a chicken! AT LEAST you can call hair metal crap a metal sub-genre (even though it's WAY more pop than actual metal or rock)! The reason they're famous is cause stupid emo and scene tween and teen girls think they're rock! WELL get a life and listen to some REAL rock like Guns N Roses, Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam! Don't listen to these boring, lame rock posers! 21 losers are pure pop, alternative pop and indie pop, not rock at ALL, nor are they good.

Get this to number 1 please - christangrant

Tyler Joseph's voice is just painful annoying.

I can't stand this 'band'. - Brobusky

12 Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides Black Veil Brides is an American rock band currently consisting of Andy Biersack (vocals), Jinxx (guitar), Jake Pitts (guitar), Christian Coma (drums) and Ashley Purdy (bass), that formed in 2006 in Ohio. more.

13 Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria Coheed and Cambria is an American progressive rock band from Nyack, New York, formed in 1995. The band consists of Claudio Sanchez, Travis Stever, Josh Eppard, and Zach Cooper.

15 The New Guns N' Roses

Axl is fat and old and gets out of breath trying to sing anymore. And no slash so basically every good thing about them is gone.
