Top Ten Music Artists That Are the Worst at Their Genre

These people should've been working at McDonalds instead of doing music.

The Top Ten

1 Nicki Minaj - Rap

I think the only reason people are still buying her is because more people are so attracted to her FAKE ass. I don't if people don't care if her ass is fake. I am so sick and tired of people buying music just for the looks. Is there any person out there who would look at Nicki Minaj or Justin Bieber or any hot singer and say "I don't care about her looks. She still sucks as a rapper." The looks don't mean squat, the fame, the fortune, the money, the coolness, all don't mean jack squat in the music industry. What really matters is your damn talent. And Minaj doesn't have that. She sucks.

I want to make one thing clear people, I don't hate Minaj because hate's a strong word. I just can't stand how she's still getting so much publicity because of her getting plastic surgery to get a fake ass. Doesn't that bother you people?

This chick is gonna fall off soon. I really hope she does. I'm surprised that she's relevant. How people are still buying her. She's not gonna last forever and nobody will ever remember her. I promise.

All she does is talk about her fake arse. Maroon 5 are more appropriate even though they just talk about breakups with their boyfriends.

3 Lil Wayne - Rap

I don't even wanna hear any bull about rap being called black people's music and that I don't get it because I'm a stupid racist. It doesn't matter what color your skin is. What matters is your attitude.

4 Iggy Azalea - Rap Iggy Azalea - Rap Amethyst Amelia Kelly, born June 7, 1990 known professionally as Iggy Azalea, is an Australian rapper, singer, songwriter, and model.

That won over Eminem? COME ON!

Just fade away you piece of crap; your music sucks

Eminem may be controversial, but he is DEFINITELY not bad at his music. He has actual talent, unlike azalea.

5 Justin Bieber - Pop

The Most retarded person ever

He helped ruined the pop genre, and idiotic "beliebers" are not helping.

This should be number one. - Freddy_Fazbear

6 Beyonce - R&B Beyonce - R&B Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from ...read more.
7 Rihanna - Pop
8 Lily Allen - Pop Lily Allen - Pop Lily Rose Beatrice Cooper, known professionally as Lily Allen, is an English singer, songwriter, actress, and television presenter.

Lily Allen? There are so many things wrong with this bimbo. She cannot sing.

Let's go through reasons why she is quite possibly the worst person on earth.

First off, her music is heavily computer-generated and it makes my ears bleed pints of blood. Also her songs lack for variety needed to fit on an album meaning that her songs are all identical to each other. They don't even appeal to anyone with half a brain in the slightest. Her songs have swear words even though they are aimed at kids.

Secondly, her fans mostly consist of teenyboppers who constantly worship her as a god and this angers me to the maximum.

Thirdly, her lyrical topics consist of getting laid, partying, getting high, sex and all the common rubbish you here in music these days. Great, that's just what we need. Another talentless bimbo like Rhianna and all those modern day artists who have no talent. To make matters worse, her music is not just aimed at teenyboppers, but to young children in ...more

9 Cardi B - Rap Cardi B - Rap Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, known professionally as Cardi B, is an American rapper, songwriter, television personality and more.
10 Carrie Underwood - Country/Pop Carrie Underwood - Country/Pop Carrie Marie Underwood is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She rose to fame as the winner of the fourth season of American Idol, in 2005. Her debut album, Some Hearts, was released in 2005.

Sings about nothing besides Jesus, cheaters, and cowboys. Only right-wingers who hate "satanic music" like the Beatles think of her as more than an asinine, dumb puppet from a karaoke show. - DJTerrible

This filth should never be glorified again

The Contenders

11 Macklemore - Rap Macklemore - Rap Ben Haggerty, (born, June 19, 1983) known by his stage name Macklemore and formerly Professor Macklemore, is an American singer and songwriter from Seattle, Washington.
12 Ke$ha - Pop

I have to agree. Kesha is just another poppy party girl who's five minutes of fame will fade away quickly. Thank science for that.

Not all of kesha's songs are about getting drunk and passing out, she sometimes makes songs about different stuff too. She sometimes has good lyrics to her songs, whoever said that probably only listened to tic tok.

Taylor swift also sucks as well

Kesha is awesome at pop, she is the only reason I listen to pop. Taylor Swift should be here instead, she makes the most horrible pop music ever.

14 Drake - Rap

Is he really a rapper. I thought he was a horrible blend of autotune and gibberish.

15 Katy Perry - Pop

Is there anybody over the age of 13 that takes her seriously? She can't sing, she can't dance, she doesn't write her own music (writing credits are granted even if you contributed only one word), she's an awful person, her music is pathetic, she has one of the most annoying fanbases ever (it's like they cannot take criticism yet love to bash Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, all of whom are successful), her body parts are made of silicone and plastic, and she mocks other foreign cultures. Is that not a bad popstar or what!

16 Miley Cyrus - Pop

It baffles me how this skank still has fans. I promise you all that in the next few months or later Miley Cyrus isn't gonna have anymore fans. Because people will realize how terrible she is, how she's one of the worst of the worst, those of you really take this chick seriously, you guys are idiots. She's a joke. She's a joke singer. She's not meant to be taken Seriously. Cyrus is one of the worst singers EVER. Really.

I knew her all haters are so jealous for her popularity and for her huge fan base. Poor haters.

This bitch still has fans? Seriously? This chick encourages drugs, sex, and partying in her fans, and people still sight her as an influence?

Well then here's one thing for Miley Cyrus's Fans. Miley Cyrus sucks, and so do you.

This skank will fall off soon. I know it because people are already realizing how awful she is, how irritating she is, how she's one of the worst to ever do it.

And no, I don't find her attractive. This is not a woman that I would want in my life. A whore, a hoe, a stripper, a skank, and a bitch.

Those guys have no talent at all

One quick question

Do I see you selling over a million records? Nope so your arguments invalid

Hey stupid directioners! They have not talent! Why would I be jealous of that! No the Beatles! They're someone to be jealous of! And also, "Directioner", seriously?! Belieber is more creative than that!

25 Nickelback - Rock

Nickleback is bad at the genre of music, no specific genre defines their horribleness

26 The Black Eyed Peas - Edm

They are just annoying...

30 G.G.Allin - Rock

I'd put this guy much higher above the list.

31 Magic! - Reggae Magic! - Reggae Magic!, originally stylized as MAGIC!, is a Canadian reggae fusion band based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

Magic? More like FAKE!

32 Bubba Sparxxx - Rap Bubba Sparxxx - Rap Warren Anderson Mathis, professionally known by his stage name Bubba Sparxxx, is an American hip hop recording artist from Georgia.

He is proof that things won't last forever. Back then he was high on top, and then he just died off. Nobody remembered him, like at all. Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Ke$ha, and One Direction are all gonna end up like Bubba Sparxxx. In fact, All of these artists on this list are all gonna end up just like Bubba Sparxxx. Who left and never came back.

He came and went so fast. Just about every "artist" on the billboard right now will turn out like him. Nobody cares about him and nobody remembers him now.

33 Florida Georgia Line - Country

These guys are the final nail in the coffin for mainstream country music. Ever since "Cruise" was a hit, everyone else jumped on the "Bro-country" bandwagon. None of them topped these two in awfulness, however.

They make good songs, then ruin them by making horrible pop versions of them. Please, never listen to the pop versions of their songs! - Turkeyasylum

He is the wrost at anything - BigBrotherSucks

Them, Rammstein, and Marilyn Manson all shouldn't be on this list at all.
