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.
I really like Nickelback and their music, and I too sometimes don't understand why they get so much hate. I've heard people say that their songs all sound the same. Like does Far Away and Rockstar sound the same? Or Photograph and Gotta Be Somebody? I don't think so. I will admit, their are some parts of some songs that sound the same, but doesn't a lot of music sound the same? I've also heard people say they sound so bad that they would kill themselves or do something stupid and disturbing rather than listen to one Nickelback song. Like that is so untrue, people just say that to seem cool and jump onto the Nickelback hate train, and it's pretty stupid. It's like sheep, if one person hates Nickelback, then almost everyone else will. They obviously aren't the best band of all time, but they definitely aren't the worst band of all time either, I've heard so many other bands that are worse than Nickelback. I do think Chad Kroeger is a good singer and very successful songwriter, just look ...more
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 personally don't hate Nickelback, and I definitely don't hate on them to be cool. They just don't appeal to me, and that's the main reason why it has been heavily hated on. I don't see it as a trend to be cool to despise them. They just don't appeal to the majority. I will say that I can see why they're easy to dislike. I personally think that Chad's vocals are a bit rough and sharp that it makes most of their work unbearable to listen to. His singing could work for some people, but it doesn't work for the rest of us. I will say they do deserve to be here because of how much they are hated, but I won't say they are the worst band ever.
Everyone hates them even if they know they are better than a lot of modern artists. They're absolutely not among my favourite bands, but people need to stop hating on them.
This band single handedly destroyed 90's rock/metal music. Fred Durst is by far one of the worst people to ever exist on this planet. Their fans are even worst. Most never finished high school.
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
Thank you. Limp bizkit might not have the talent of bands like led zeppelin. But they tap into my adolecence angst better than any other band period
There's a reason why they're hated. They're posers, Fred Durst is an ass, they made an album with Young Money, etc.
They are so talented. Their metalcore albums had nothing great, but when they started making heavy metal stuff they revealed to be among the most talented modern metal artists. Moreover they are very creative and diverse.
I had to go for Avenged Sevenfold as I'm not familiar with any of Nickleback's albums (barring few songs) and must admit although their music lacks substance and creativity but to say they are the worst band out there is being ignorant... Coming to the point, from my perspective the animosity towards A7x has merely anything to do with their music and highly because of their rabid annoying fan base/popularity/appearance/stage names blah blah blah..I'm not an A7x fan but I do appreciate their humility and caring attitude towards people and fans and not to mention they're a highly talented bunch of guys and gutsy as well through constant experimentation in their music throughout their career despite bearing the knowledge that losing fans in that process is almost a certainty..For me, if it wasn't for them initially the interest and urge towards entering the gate of Heavy Metal wouldn't have been even a remote possibility...
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.
The fact that people refer to them as A7X is reason enough to hate this band. It's angry teenager music and that's all it will ever be.
Metallica aren't hated for their music, although the last few albums were pretty sketchy until they released "Death Magnetic. They are hated because of what they did to the music industry in regards of file sharing on the internet. Lars Ulrich (aka the biggest effin crybaby in metal) spearheaded the campaign against Napster and other peer to peer file sharing sites, causing them to shut down permanently. Biggest metal band of all time and they had to whine about money. If it wasn't for file sharing on the internet, this band wouldn't still be relevant today and would have phased out of the scene years ago. On top of that, Lars is absolutely the worst drummer in metal history. He was "okay" up until the Load album. Every album since his drumming has been pure crap. It's like he doesn't think he has to try anymore.
I agree that their later albums are lame, but hating them for selling out is kinda stupid honestly. If you don't like those albums, just don't listen to them and stick to their older thrash metal stuff. Simple as that.
I do believe Metallica can be really overrated in some circumstances (IE Master of Puppets being voted best on almost every top ten to many top tens, people tlking about Enter Sandman like it's better than anything, people claiming Fade to Black is the most emotional song ever written. ) But at the same time that doesn't make the band bad. And albums such Load and Lulu aren't really signs of weakness in my opinion but rather the band falling into genres people don't like. And at least Metallica shows true expression and emotion in there music unlike some bands.
Hi guys, I'm glad too see you all hear stand at Metallica side! They just did not deserved to be so hated, they have few bad albums but hey guys remember good old albums they are working hard to do what the do today to be one of the greatest Metal bands, I meet some people how said thinks like Metallica is not true trash. I think Metallica is true Trash metal band so this is all of me, have a nice days and stay rock.
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.)
Korn is just horrible. It's because of this band and bands like Limp Bizket that most of the metal music in the 90's was utter garbage.
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.
Is everyone stupid enough to hate AC/DC, while they haven't done anything disgraceful, when idiots like 21 Savage, Young Thug, etc, are out there?
Hmm, I guess that some Pop or Hip-Hop fans hate AC/DC! But guys, this is good music! Not my fault if you can't appreciate it!
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.
Drug out to the street and shot? Really? That's TOO violent for the haters, they don't deserve that!
I'd say: Anybody who hates AC/DC should drink some Listerine, get his ears checked or eat his nails!
This is one of the bands that are overrated and overhated at the same time! But if you ask me, this band is very amazing!
I can't even with this band. As soon as Scott Stapp starts singing on any track it makes my blood boil. It's like nails on a chalkboard.
This band is among the most hated. I think they were actually good. Certainly not the best, but good
This should be #1 and this band is amazing.
Honestly I think that disturbed is one the best bands ever. I have nothing else to say, except they are awesome.
Too soft and weak emotions lol! ! Grow some balls
I'm a huge fan and I don't think there is
anything to hate about them.
So what if David is a dick, he's one hell of a singer. That's for sure
Many people hate linkin park, and I cannot understand why. They hate them because they were nu metal, but at the same time they hate them because they don't do only nu metal, they hate them for literally everything they did. This needs to stop. You cannot say a band is talentless because you don't like them. The great variety of genres they did is a proof of their incredible talent.
I don't understand why Linkin Park is so hated?
Because they turned away from HT/Meteora style when people complained that they were similar and yet get mad when they released MtM because it's so different?
I respect them for trying different things and moving from the norm, their music matured and weren't afraid to try something new. in my opinion, minutes to midnight is their best album.
Just because they don't make music you like anymore doesn't give you a reason to hate them. Aboard the hate bandwagon.
Great band, I really don't see why anyone would hate them except for the newer albums. Hybrid Theory, Reanimation, Meteora and Minutes To Midnight were awesome. The Hunting Party and Living Things were good. But One More Light...I know Chester died, but it was a bad album, sorry.
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
Generic heroin junkie music. Absolute garbage. Most live shows Scott Weiland was so trashed he could barely finish the show.
People hate him ( and his band ) because of their dark appearance and because they think they are satanic. Someone says the singer cannot sing. I'm a recent fan of theirs, and I can say that mm is not the best singer, but he is good.
I don't like Marilyn Manson as a person, he's creepy and rather disturbing...definitely not someone I want to meet. I do like his music though, but it's an acquired taste. I don't blame people for disliking it.
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.
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
People hate Demon Hunter because it is trendy nowadays to hate Christians.
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.
A bad copy of U2 and even copying U2 when they were just plain vulgar..
Overrated singer (he is no Mercury) and band that is so so lame whose only sole purpose was and is to sell corporate "beautiful" music.. as art they have zero originality, no integrity and technical speaking they are terrible (I play all instruments)
Could not even play a 5/4 tune if needed..
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 wasn't always such a hated band, once throughout the 2000s they were critically accaimed and had a good following, but after Viva La Vida, their credibility and sound started to change forming the sound you hear them sing today.
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.
The only good reason for people to dislike Slipknot is because they aren't that persons type of music. But that's sadly isn't the case one of the reasons why they are hated is because they wear masks
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
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
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.
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.
You like them or not, the facts don't change! They're the reason why Rock Music is so famous and our favourite bands wouldn't exist without them!
I don't hate the Beatles, I just really don't care for their music.
How can anyone hate them? They are so amazingly talented with great vocals and beats
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
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
No one is cooler than Kurt cobain
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.
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 that ...more
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!
Rush aren't even hated, they're just underrated
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!
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.
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!
They're okay, my two friends love them, though.
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
They're way better than people give them credit for.
They sold out with Evolve.
They aren't even rock.
Their singer is ridiculously annoying and pop radio continuously forces their music down everyone's throats
They're factually good and have talent. Just cause they look and sound emo doesn't mean they're bad (although they're the only good emo band)
Victims of the 2000s genre-community divides, made one of the best rock albums of the decade and really don't deserve to be buried under endless blind hate for the cringy parts of their fanbase
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.
To be honest this entire list is pretty autistic, why not go for actual bands people hate/only like ironically like smash mouth
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.
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
They are so bad
This is pop metal
