Top 10 Most Stupidly Hated BandsSome people hate bands who are actually good because it's the cool thing to do. These are the bands who have been subjected to that and shouldn't have been.
The Top Ten
Its stupid to hate them they are a amazing band
People just hate to be cool and fit in with the crowd. They act like Nickelback is the musical anti-christ. Nickelback is an awesome band with great songs. Chad knows how to write great hit songs that people remember. People also say that all their songs sound the same. Untrue! Compare Burn It To The Ground to Lullaby. Different tempo. Different song structure. Different instrumentation. Different lyrical topic, obviously. IT IS CLEARLY A DIFFERENT SONG! You must be deaf or just plain stupid to think all their songs sound the same.
I'm in the minority that hate Justin bieber, I testify against psy, and I hate most of the female artist of today, but why is this one of the bands that people hate the most? First of all it's not fair, there just a band that love to play and that's what musics all about, second everybody says they suck, to the point were we say all right already take your opinions somewhere else. Third they at least try harder compared to the other so called hit musicians, and they least have some great songs including rockstar, and burn it to the ground. And worst they don't just attack the band, but also anyone who gives them a fair chance that is inexcusable. In short nickel back is a good band that need more appreciation. If I were to compare them to an animated film it will be cars 2, because people put themselves on there high horse and don't give them a fair chance. So. End by saying give nickelback a chance
I don't understand why are they hated, they have fantastic songs with fantastic lyrics (except for the few songs on one single album that are basically the reason they are hated) and Chad has a great voice. FANTASTIC BAND!26 Comments
Most of their songs are good except Nookie. - I80
I personally don't like Durst's vocals. That's all I have to say.
I'm sorry but the lets rag on Fred Durst because he's white and accidentally started a riot bandwagon is one ridden by people who've never even heard a limp bizkit song. Limp Bizkit has that juvenile delinquent vibe and heavy rifts that makes me go insane every time I hear them. Limp Bizkit might not be as good as Led Zeppelin but they're pretty awesome.
Best song: BREAK STUFF
Fred durst is such a douche bag poseur.14 Comments
I can see why people hate the fans, I'm a fan and trust me I know those people. But the band it's self is just great, a talented bunch and if you would just listen to the music instead of the fans, maybe you would see why me and so many others love them.
They have been blindly hated but those haters don't see talent and skill in those people, hated for their looks before so what does have to do with music exactly or they have been hated for using country influences and not being heavy just shut up its music which you are not bothered to realise
People that have this band are the biggest dopes I have ever seen. They always say like "They a Pop Emo garbage", This statement alone tells you how stupid they are, A7X isn't Emo, they did have a makeup stage during the City of Evil album (Which was 11 years ago), but they aren't Emo. When they say "Pop" they meant A7X's softer songs like "So Far Away", yet they say similar songs to it aren't pop. All in all, it's not like you are required to like this band, it's your choice, but if you hate them for stupid reasons, you are dumber than a doorknob.
THEY ARE THE BEST BAND EVER!5 Comments
Two words: Lars Ulrich
Really? #2 most hated? Did people just forget Yoko Ono was a thing?
I see too many people saying "Metallica is garbage" or similar nonsense. While I personally don't like their most recent albums (except Death Magnetic, that one is pretty good, ) their first four albums were excellent. I figure most people who dislike Metallica probably haven't spent much time listening to their older music.
First five albums are good enough to prove that they are fantastic17 Comments
They must be hated, their song "All in the Family" is the proof, I say that ALMOST ruined Fred Durst's career.
They probably hate them because they think they're "satanic" which is a really stupid idea to hate popular rock/metal bands.
I swear this whole rumor of rock and metal needs to die. How would you people like it if I went around saying that country and rap are satanic? Would you fans of those genres appreciate that?
I'm no fan of Korn, but they don't have any reasons to be hated. They know how to play their instruments pretty good.
Korn is pretty disturbing but the one song "Daddy" is about a child who got sexually abused by some sort of family friend then the child told his mother about that but refused to believe. Yeah, that's scary enough. Do you know who the child is? The lead singer was Jonathan Davis is the child. You may think Nightmares at Elm Street is real, then it is based on a true-event about Jonathan got abused when he was 12 years old and I'm pretty sure that the story was just realistic than I expected. But "Daddy" is a true-event masterpiece that the band never deserved to be in the worst list.
(Note: I'm not a Korn fan, but if you want to know about the song "Daddy", search Top Ten Most Disturbing Songs of All Time and I knew this song was number one.)
AC/DC is so stupid
Anybody who hates AC/DC should be drug out to the street and shot
Anybody who thinks people should be drug out to the street and shot just because of their musical taste has to learn that not everybody has to like the same - Alkadikce
Whenever I ask someone why he hates AC/DC, he always replies 'their songs sound the same'! I don't think people actually hate the band, they just hate the fact that their songs sound the same.
I would understand why people would hate them because of the vocals of Brian Johnson, there music sounds the same and overrated - Th3Zm0nst3r12 Comments
This should be #1 and this band is amazing. - Soulstealer
All songs sound the same
Honestly I think that disturbed is one the best bands ever. I have nothing else to say, except they are awesome.
So what if David is a dick, he's one hell of a singer. That's for sure
He's actually a really nice dude. Met him at an In Flames show once. He tolerated my drunk ass for a few minutes.
Too soft and weak emotions lol! ! Grow some balls2 Comments
Linkin Park haters should hate all music because Linkin Park has mixed rap, rock, metal, alternative, and punk into one thing. With so much for so many different types of people to love why do people hate them so much? Oh yeah! They're stupid.
Best song: ONE STEP CLOSER
I don’t hate Linkin Park and they are the greatest band of all time.
You are right who made this list is of course mad stupid... Linkin Park always gives hit songs whenever they release their album
Too Generic. Not diversified enough and oversimplified. - Praj9 Comments
Gimmick, gimmick and gimmick. He has this edgy "scary" image yet his music is the most vanilla industrial metal you can ever hear. I've been more intimidated by Mindless Self Indulgence.
His music's different and it scares people,
but he goes for the shock content. so I guess he's doing well despite the hate. Honestly, I love his vocals.
Best Song: Coma White
Most stupid white middle class teenagers are scared of Marylin Manson. That's why they gang up on him. But Manson doesn't care and neither does his fans. He has amazing guitar rifts and if you don't get it you never will.
Best song: THE DOPE SHOW
I don't see why they are hated so much. They actually make decent music.2 Comments
People hate Demon Hunter because it is trendy nowadays to hate Christians.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Why is it on the list, it was never a most hated band before
Their music is so soulful. It bugs me when people say "Chris Martin sings falsetto all the time and it's so annoying" because in almost all of Queen's songs, Freddie Mercury sings falsetto. And if you don't like Chris Martin as a person, that doesn't mean you can't like Coldplay as a band.
Coldplay is an alright band that people appear to hate for no real reason. Songs like 'clocks' are brilliant, although there' later stuff is not as good. What I do hate about them is that people incorrectly label them as 'the most depressing band in existence. Coldplay are in no way at all depressing. Anyone who claims they are does obviously not know the meaning of depressing.
Sort of sold out with the latest album - Praj5 Comments
These guys are the definition of a boy band. I think the Beatles are definitely overrated. It's my belief that at their time they were edgy or there just wasn't anything else like them. The media hyped them up and gave them the the image that they were somehow the greatest of all time. Looking back on it now, they're pretty good at best. I just think they are enormously overrated and get too much credit. Not at all bad, but just overrated. - autismspeaks
This is more of top ten greatest rock bands
Who in the world can hate The Beatles only low life people like kids these days saying oh 1D is better than The Beatles and all that other crap like that. - austin.rose.73307614 Comments
How can anyone hate them? They are so amazingly talented with great vocals and beats
People hate slipknot because of their imagery. Trust me if they dressed like limp bizkit and sung about the stupid ignorant crap that limp biskit does they would be just as popular
People that hate Slipknot have never actually listened to them or have but just don't like the genre. You shouldn't hate a band because you think you would without listening to them and I know this because I was a Slipknot hater until I actually listened to them. and lastly if you don't like a specific type of music just don't listen to it no one is holding your family hostage and will kill them if you don't to them.
Chad aplin from Iowa is the backbone of this band best singer he took cory to school and showed him how to sing. Every slip fan should thank Chad. Chad aplin rules
I hate them just because of their creepy looks and thugs like activity on live but their lyrics are and music are real metal.16 Comments
Great metal band that are often hated in the metal community as they are seen as the fore-fathers of modern (insert metal genre)-core / nu metal, most of which is rubbish. Pantera themselves however are superb
Anyone who hates Pantera obviously has never listened to their music - MetalWorldOrder
Nirvana is underrated as well as overrated. After Kurt's death the isle split even farther, but I am on the side that appreciates the passion in their music as well as what they did for a generation!
What the hell does Creed or Candlebox have to do with Nirvana? They are crap, Nirvana isn't
Who started the let's blame nirvana for Creed and Candlebox trend? Because someone should take a baseball bat to their car. Nirvana has some of the best song writing and emmotion of any band. Period. RIP Kurt you did one hell of a job.
Best song: SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT
Very overrated. - imabigpotato1 Comment
ICP is my favorite band. I get that people are allowed to like and not like things. But what bothers me is when some people go out of their way to say they hate them simply to try to make the people who do feel bad. And it's always for absolutely stupid reasons like "They dress like clowns! Therefore it's stupid! " "They curse too much! " "They caused Juggalos to exist! ". And usually those same people only listened to like one or two ICP songs.
I have some things to say.
I am a Juggalette who likes ICP, but from being one I know you don't have to like them to be a Juggalo. It's a subculture, a lifestyle, a way of thinking, a family. Juggalos can listen to what ever they want. And we're actually mostly decent people, we're just weird and misunderstood.
Also, don't bring even up the "Juggalos are a gang" or "People who listen to ICP are part of gang activity" lies. We aren't a gang. The authorities are realizing ...more
Why people hate ICP? I'm a Juggalette, and people are saying: "They just suck. Period. Grown men should not be running around wearing face paint and rap about killing people and doing drugs. Grow up."
That's simply stereotyping. You're the one who needs to grow up and stop judging people by their music taste. It's your life? No. Have I ever done something bad to you? No. Then why do you hate me? Mmfwcl
Their songs are misogynist, they rap about committing crimes and their lyrics are dreadfully disturbing. Their rapping is quite good, I admit (better than Eminem), but raps with misogynistic and disturbing lyrics is not something which I can appreciate. Sorry!
I love them. They are original and you don't get that often. They are nice and funny guys. They shouldn't get the hate they do. If you dis them you might as well dis all of rap/hip hop.8 Comments
Slayer is one of the best metal bands ever! who could possibly hate them?!?!?!
They have a good tone and speed
but suffer from "Every sounds the same" Syndrome. The leads are kinda thrown together and the songs barely last more than 3 minutes. The drums are alright but really get boring quickly, and the bass drums sound like hell. Tom Arya's vocals we're very good now but they were alright then, Hanniman had good rhythm parts but his and King's leads absolutely are terrible. I like the rest of the Big 4, but Slayer's only being good at being heavy
Rush aren't even hated, they're just underrated
I very much agree. It's amazing how despite the fact that Rush has more gold and platinum records than any other band besides The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, I still get blank looks whenever I mention them.
Rush isn'r really hated that much, but they are extremely underrated!
You're right. So are Dream Theater, Radiohead, and Nightwish. People really need to get a closer look of the music world.
They are a great band and hated for selling out... Lets be honest they changed there style over time, Green Day never sold out they have always had catchy songs with repetitive verses, even in their early days. They are one of a kind, punk or not, and are keeping rock alive!
They are hated for "selling out" and going mainstream... We saw this with many great bands, and unlike a lot Green Day has really been driven by passion and not money!
Green Day isn't hated because they suck. It's an entirely different reason really it's because they are considered pop punk which isn't even a thing. Because you can't have mainstream high radio play punk because that's exactly what punk isn't.
Every 90's green day song sounds the same - Th3Zm0nst3r3 Comments
They sold out with Evolve. - Praj
Their singer is ridiculously annoying and pop radio continuously forces their music down everyone's throats
They're way better than people give them credit for.
They are so bad - Th3Zm0nst3r
I personally don't like their music...Who could combine j-pop with metal...and this stupid band did it! Well done Babymetal! You make pop-metal Japanese crap
All I can say is, how dare they! Take 'metal' out of your band name this instant! Get rid of those horrible, high pitched, annoying & painful baby voices & replace them with a male metal head that can seriously rip it up! Then I might listen.
This is pop metal - Th3Zm0nst3r1 Comment
A LOT of the bands on this list are actually really good so why don’t you pick on the modern trash instead of My Chem?
To be honest this entire list is pretty autistic, why not go for actual bands people hate/only like ironically like smash mouth
Yeah, they aren't that great a band. I don't even listen to them. However, they are nowhere close to terrible. Reserve the hate for similar bands that actually do suck, like Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco.
they suck1 Comment
They suck so badly its not even funny man they should be the most hated
They're so awful that I don't even need to explain why.
Why is this not as hated as the others come on
Their not even a great abnd, sample electronic beats and boring lyrics that have little to no meaning. Don't even let me get started on their ignorant and rude fanbase9 Comments
Guns N' Roses are a great band, but I can't stand Axl Rose sometimes. I like and hate the guy at the same time, but some of us remember when Axl kicked a guy out for wearing a Slash shirt. I understand, but if I was him, I would just make him remove his shirt. Not just remove him from the bloody show. - Mumbizz01
Guns N' Roses is actually one of my favorite bands. Appetite for Destruction is the best debut album ever, and Use Your Illusion 2 was the best 90’s album
No need for this band to be hated. Yes, Axl may be a dick, but I can't blame him considering that he grew up in a violent environment. - Solariser
Some of their hate is deserved, but some of it isn't!1 Comment
Who the hell hates Bob Marley?
Why are they in this list? The soul of everyone ask for songs of Bob Marley! People who say they hate Bob Marley, actual love them inside.
At this point I think people are just adding these bands to pissed us off
People think Mr. Marley only made music for stonners. As always those people are just biggots who haven't listened to the soul and lyrics of a Bob Marley song.
Best song: THREE LIL BIRDS
I'm so mad that they are on the top ten worst bands. I only hate the " don't stops" because they only like she looks so perfect and everyone else coming here to hate on them has probably never heard San Francisco or out of my limit or get out ( one that they never fully released) or teenage Queen. I just hate the people who hate on them because they are "punk rock" because they are. And don't get me started on the people who say that they aren't talented, one direction is way better and more talented. I like them too but they all play an instrument and we are all entitled to our own opinions I'm just here because I want everyone to stop treating them like potatoes. They are all human but they all got a little luckier than us so we need to stop. Why can't anyone respect each other and none of this would have happened if we could've just gotten along and respected others opinions. I love that and that is all that matters on this list. Just because they went on tour with one direction ...more
Garbage pop teen corporate music
Whenever I hear their music I'm ashamed to be Australian
Disgrace to Australia - Demogorgan4 Comments
Damon and Graham should tie up Liam and Noel and beat them with acoustic guitars until they hit tonsils. Bunch of arrogant, egotistical daddy rockers. Go to hell Gallagher brothers.
Britpop means nothing to the world, only in the UK. The singer can't sing at all and they plagiarize a lot as well. This is garbage for Britaboos and Britaboos only. Now if you excuse me, I'm going to bash myself in the head with an acoustic guitar.
Oasis r rubbish
The leader is annoying.
Fall Out Boy is awesome. Period. They make really great music that's super catchy and do NOT deserve the hate at all. Although, yes, the last album was not as strong as others, From Under the Cork Tree and Save Rock and Roll are two really great albums
Why does Fall Out Boy get so much hate! They are a brilliant! They are great singers and they are NOT emo! They put up with so much hate! Why? I love Fall Out Boy, they are the best band EVER!
I agree with this one. There's actually a lot of positive things to say about FOB and the whole "emo" nonsense is ridiculous. Anyone who thinks they're emo clearly has never listened to Black Veil Brides or Falling in Reverse. - DCfnaf4 Comments
A band perfect for edgy teenagers wannabe revolutionary.
One of the best bands ever
I am so tired of people saying that ratm is just for people that like screaming their music is great and they love to experiment
2 WORDS TOM MORELLO1 Comment
Chuck is a genius and he clearly set out to make real music rather than follow a trend. Like death doesn't sing about satanism or killing people because they don't believe in that. They actually try to spread positive message about philosophy and politics but are still brutal and heavy death metal.
Didn't know Death was hated
No one really knows death outside of the death metal scene so saying that they're hated is a little rediculouse. But chuck is amazing
No one can hated death
I love them! I don't know why anyone would hate them. Their music sounds amazing and each and everyone of their songs have a different sound.
Crap songs. - Demogorgan
Why do people hate these guys so much? I don't see what's so wrong about them!
They're hated? - Userguy44
Their newest song was garbage
What makes Bon Jovi the worst band and worst music artist ever? Pfff, come with me, I could think of over 45 artists worse than them!
Let's start: Justin Bieber, Ed Sheeran, Jason Derulo, Drake, Kanye West, Soulja Boy, 21 Savage, Lil Pump, Lil Yachty, Lil Wayne, Will.I.am, T-Pain, Kendrick Lamar, Juicy J, Silento, Kodak Black, Young Thug, Migos, The Chainsmokers, 1 Direction, LMFAO, etc.
See how many? SEE?!?!
This is a band that has been around since the late 80's and can play a mix of jazz, funk, hop hop, alternative, reggae, punk, and some metal sounding riffs. They also have a great message to a lot of their songs.
People think they are just a Sublime rip off or a douchy frat boy band but they are way more versatile than most bands that I've ever listened to.
While not on the same levels as bassists such as Victor Wooten, Jaco, Geddy etc. , P-Nut is an amazing bassist and is the highlight of any 311 show. Oh, and nobody does "the robot" like SA!
They're pretty decent but hated by rock and metal fans. Sometimes it's just Kellin's voice sounding high pitched but that doesn't make them bad. - 0w0uwu
Probably the worst band I ever heard it's like listening to love advice from 2 year olds
I just don't like Robert Plant's lyric. I find his vocals to be kinda annoying. "Stairway to heaven" is their only song in which he is tolerable. Also, making songs about the Lord of the Rings makes me cringe. I would make the argument that they are a satan-worshipping band but let's not go there! - autismspeaks
Whoever hates LZ is my true enemy! LZ is my favorite band, and f- -k up the haters!
A pretty decent rock band once you look through there back cataloge
Lead singer sounds like someone has dipped his balls in acid
Love the vamps because I love james,connor,Tristan,and brad vote vamps
God hates Gorgoroth.
Their first album is a black metal classic. Hat is an amazing vocalist and one of my all time favorites.
I hate Gorgoroth because they are really satanic...
Religious peoole hate this band for their satanic imagery, but their music is just brilliant.1 Comment
Nah, they aren't that bad! I'm sure they have some good songs!
I love KISS. But parents had to make them seem like the most anti-christ thing in the world
Kiss had a few good songs then came out with that disco album and deserves to be hated
Only hated by some Metallica fans - Userguy44
Megadeth is hated because of Dave Mustaine’s “vocals” and his political and religious beliefs. That’s it. Despite that, they are more talented than the guys in Metallica. I don’t hate Metallica, but Megadeth has more and better talent. And that’s a fact. I don’t care who’s more popular, Megadeth is better.
Even if they are not the best band ever and they are overrated, what a good reason to hate them? I guess it’s because they are too complex, technical and having no feel in their music. Not everyone’s preference, so i’m fine with that. ~ Userguy44
