Music Artists Nobody Seems to DislikeAlkadikce
The Top Ten
I used to find them pretty boring and uninteresting, but I never really disliked them. Honestly, Prog Rock music isn't for everyone and I can understand that. - Userguy44
I find prog rock one of the least boring genres. Boring/exciting doesn't depend on speed and heaviness in my opinion - Alkadikce
Honestly I think most of the people that would hate it only know it has their dads favorite band and therefore haven't listened to it to hate it.
That is the beauty of Prog music only those that don't mind longer songs in more intricate style will listen to it instead of those that only like catchy songs, not to say that pink floyd doesn't have some good catchy songs - germshep24
Well you can count me one of the haters. (sort of) I legit don't see why they're so praised. Nothing particularly bad, but nothing particularly good in my opinion, highly overrated. Maybe I just haven't heard the right songs?
Well, which songs have you heard? If you are a more mainstream music listener, try Learn to Fly, Money or Childhood's End. - Alkadikce
This is what I like about the beauty of time, when they first came out the were pretty hated, but once you become a classic band you just can't have as much hate - germshep2415 Comments
I have seen people calling him "overrated", but I've never seen any of them claiming that they dislike him. I guess it is true. - Misfire
At most people would call him overrated - germshep24
Also for a good reason I think. - Userguy44
Mr. Christmas songs! - Luigi64900
I wonder if anybody has said it ever that he is a bad drummer. - Alkadikce
I have never heard someone trash talk Neil's drumming in my life. Ever. - Gg2000
Huh. I didn't know that. I guess there's always at least one person... - Gg2000
Love how he plays drums - LightningStrike
Everyone in my family loves him, especially my mom's cousin, and we have a pictures of him around the house. - Luckys
There are some classical music fans who don't like Mozart or Beethoven, but I haven't seen any so far who would hate Bach. And these three are the three most famous classical composers. - Alkadikce
I'm a fan of metal and rock and still appreciate classical music - SirSheep
Classical music was metal when metal wasn't invented yet: it could be violent, romantic, epic, or fantasy the four main emotions that you get from metal - germshep24
I have a friend who is big into classical music and dislikes Bach, at least in comparison to Beethoven and Mozart, as well as Chopen
If you’re calling a timeless composer of the 1600s bad, you’re just wasting your time. - Not_A_Weeaboo
I don't think anyone hates Queen, on this band. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo
There are people who dislike them, unfortunately. However, I've never seen a reason besides them being "overrated". - Misfire
My friend with a very specific and delicate and passionate taste in music has a pretty strong dislike for them : he says they are "too commercial", and were "only interested in making arenas dance, and never interested in socio-political matters". - JoLeKosovo
People consider them overrated and I see why though, but they rarely get hate. - Userguy443 Comments
I don't like him. - Luckys
Well, he is the "King of Rock and Roll". - Misfire
Any artist that has dead just isn't going to be hated unless they had did a terrible thing in their live. The worst you'll get are the people that get made when someone says he invented rock - germshep24
One of two on this list I agree with - blackflower1 Comment
I have seen people calling The Who overrated, but never seen hate comments. - Userguy44
Better than Taylor Swift.
Never listened to them so can't say a bad thing about them - germshep24
Blackflower I can respect that!
They are though, however, one of the most important rock bands!
I know about two big Dio haters on this site. The guys are metal haters who hate everything good in metal. Their comments are inaccurate yet mean and ugly. One of them added Dio to the list Worst Metal Singers and spam voted him to #1. The other one wrote dozens of mean comments on my lists, including that Dio is "an addled burnout", confusing Dio with Ozzy. The pathetic author of that comment didn't even know that Dio was in Black Sabbath and we were talking about a song/album with Dio and not Ozzy. - Metal_Treasure
He is even called overrated very few times, let alone bad. And this is a big achievement in a genre where half of the fans refuse anything popular or famous. - Alkadikce
He is an icon, I mean he had an entire album devoted to him by Jorn Lande. He is respected by metal artists and the metal community - germshep24
I can understand that, fans can be irrational about their favorite bands - germshep24
Is this a JoJo's reference? - Criz1 Comment
I actually love his songs. And it doesn't make me dislike one bit. - yamionthetrap
For good reason - Alkadikce
Alkadikce, YOU do better!
The other one I agree.with - blackflower
Sorry, I just realised what your comment means (you meant that there are two items you agree with). I thought you agreed with the other comment. - Alkadikce
I personally never get why he is considered the greatest classical composer of all time. He wrote some painfully over-estimated pieces like Symphony No.5, and Für Elise.
Edit: I didn't say I hate him, I just don't get why he is considered the best. Maybe I am just a "classical elitist", the classical version of a metal elitist:
"Oh, you listen to Beethoven? Poser! You should go and check Schlickschlockmäuser, he's 100x better." - Alkadikce
My peculiar friend dislikes them because eh they made albums in the eighties so they must be bad. - JoLeKosovo
No, Rush is disliked by many for Geddy's voice. - Alkadikce
Moreover, some people have a beef with the Ayn Rand lyrics. - JoLeKosovo
I also don't like Geddy's voice even though he is a great bassist. - Userguy441 Comment
Is there anyone who hates Blind Guardian? - Userguy44
Their definitely one of the bands I use for people that hate metal - germshep24
There may be people who don't like Deep Purple, but this again is one of the bands I think I have never seen a hate comment about them. - Userguy44
Have you suffered brainwashing through a documentary called Leaving Neverland. Even though it has not been proven, his music has now been banned from radio stations, Stark Raving Dad (Simpsons) has been banned from television even though... Put him in with the big white guy who thinks he's the little black guy. He's 300 pounds, He's white He's dressed without flair. Hey, Looney Tunes, this is what Michael Jackson looks like. You look like a big, fat mental patient.
Big FAT mental patient.
"Are you okay Annie? " - GehennaTheSecond
People hate him because they say he did some bad stuff with kids.
Which he didn't. - Luckys
There are people who dislike him. But it's usually not because of his music, but because of all the child molestation accusations, which I'm tired of hearing from. - Misfire2 Comments
FOX News hates him for sure - cjWriter1997
The critics though - LightningStrike
The king of the parody song niche - germshep24
No one should
Legend. - Userguy44
I have seen people hating Iron Maiden, although not near as many as hating Metallica or Slayer. Some Judas Priest fans hate them - Alkadikce
I found another hate comment about him (2pac sucked! In my opinion Lamar is the best Rapper of all time! And this great song tells for him self) - Userguy44
Eh, I have heard that a rapper dissed Tupac. - Userguy44
A rapper even some metalheads can respect - Alkadikce
On "best lyricists of all time", you can find people saying "2pac fans are completely dumb", and "I wanna punch everyone who voted for him in the nuts", "how can you be so dumb as to vote for a guy like him are you illiterate? ". Frankly I hate the lyricist lists, everyone is triggered that his favorite lyricist is out of the top 10.
But hey, that's just the way it is... - JoLeKosovo
I love this man 3000. - Misfire
A god among men. - ironmaniacs
One of the most well praised Electronic artists I think. - Userguy44
They mainly are disliked because of the music scene they emerged from. Nu metal isn't the most highly well received genre out there. That being said, Deftones have surely stood the test of time. Their music is much more substantial and artistically engaging than a lot of their more popular peers that the band rose with back in their early days. - cjWriter1997
I rarely see any Deftones haters on this site or anywhere to be honest - TheDarkOne_221b
A person who doesn't like metal would probably dislike them but they usually stop after hearing three Metallica songs.
Edit: I now regret putting them on this list. Every single album of theirs (apart from the debut) has a wide haterbase.
New Order: people hate the interludes, and the slightly repetitivd ideas in riffing
Practice What You Preach gets labelled as a 3rd rate Metallica clone, which it isn't
Souls of Black is described as boring and uninspired
The Ritual is hated for going softer and being musically a bit repetitive, "plodding"
Low's supposed flaw is going with the groove metal fashion
Demonic is considered their worst
The newer albums are hated for being a "lifeless corpse of a thrash band", making songs by arranging thrash cliches - Alkadikce
I only know one of their songs. - Luckys
The guys made the anthem of mankind: Don't Stop Believin' - germshep24
My friend who has a very passionate sense of what music should be told me : "Why do you hurt yourself with that '90s mud? " - JoLeKosovo
Nobody hated Chris Cornell so far as I know. - Userguy44
Completely agree, it would be ridiculous to claim any artist doesn't have people that dislike them - germshep24
I've never met anyone who didn't like them, but they've always been popular in my country. - vr46
Many dislike him. - JoLeKosovo
In his prime, Meat Loaf was an awesome singer. Now, he doesn't sound good because he didn't bother to take care of his voice. - Gg2000
Honestly think most really only heard that one song from him, I don't have to say the name you know without me saying - germshep24
I wonder - LightningStrike
He might be called overrated sometimes, but he most be one of few rappers with barely hate, at least that is what I think. - Userguy44
A user called Vip3r hated this band with a burning passion. - Userguy44
A lot of metalheads dislike this band for apparently "ruining" metal. It's argued that because of Pantera, metal eventually grew a certain image that was more about meatheaded bros fist fighting like wannabe badasses then about composition and technicality but eh, it doesn't matter all to me. Their music still is fun. - cjWriter1997
Kurt Cobain didn't like them. - JoLeKosovo
I feel like there are more people hating them than loving. - Alkadikce
He looks like Anthony Scaramucci. - The_Random_Content_Guy
Lot of hate on them. - JoLeKosovo
I think this band I pretty disliked, punk fans usually are divided on this band, some dislike them because the don't consider them punk other praise them, the pretty much the punk version of Metallica, without the the controversy - germshep24
A few people hate them because they think Green Day hates America with their song American Idiot. - Userguy44
There is a few Green Day dislikers, on here they're usually visitors though.
They're not very good. Or maybe, I'm just starting to grow out of Pop Punk. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo
Doesn't belong on this list, there is even a comment on Metal_Treasure's absrud & ignorant list stating Blood on the Dance Floor is thanks to them. - Alkadikce
I don't like it, but I can see why other people do. - XxembermasterxX
Don't care for this band, their kind of the Katy Perry of 90s and 00s rock - germshep242 Comments
70s Aerosmith was awesome. In the 80s, they started doing more generic, sterile radio rock tunes and cushy ballads. The only modern album of theirs I like is Honkin' on Bobo (which is full of covers of blues songs). - Gg2000
I agree, but most like them for their greatest hits, true fans I'm sure have the albums they dislike - germshep24
Eh, people hated the Phil Collins era. - Userguy44
Most people seem to either like him or have not heard of him.
Eh no. Most people hate Drones and The 2nd Law (Albums by them). They get a lot of praise, but they get a lot of hate as well. - Userguy44
I think a lot of people hate them in general: it's usually because of either their personality, the poppy nature of some of their songs, Noel Gallagher frequently borrowing or stealing from existing songs, the fact that none of their other albums are as good as the first two, and the fact that Liam Gallagher ruined his voice. I still enjoy them, but I refuse to deny their faults. - Gg2000
No, a lot of people hates Wonderwall. - Userguy44
To be honest, not a lot of people appreciate their music, sadly. - Undistinguished
I hate them together with their whole genre - Alkadikce
I've barely seen a single Nirvana hater on this site - TheDarkOne_221b
They're awesome... But - LightningStrike
No, they get a lot of hate, people say things like all of their songs sound the same (especially for SLTS and Rape Me).
There are also people hating them who claim that with their popular songs, they made people think rock is only for depressed people fed up with the world, and it led angsty teenagers become the main audience of rock music.
They also get a lot of hate from grunge fans who think everybody who calls himself a grunge fan and his favorite band is Nirvana is ignorant and does not know anything about grunge. And almost everybody hates Kurt Cobain's guitar playing. - Alkadikce
Almost every album except the first two of theirs is hated for some reason. First a ripoff of the previous album, then no bass, then radio sellouts, then pop-metal and disgusting album covers, then garbage can snare and no solos, then loudness war, then who-knows-why. - Alkadikce
Metallica get a lot of love AND a lot of hate at the same time, and they shouldn't be on this list. - Metal_Treasure
Metallica is one of the most hated bands of all time, especially during the 90s and early 2000s. - yungstirjoey666
Stop adding music artists who don't belong here. Metallica is clearly hated by Megadeth fans and people who think Metallica is overrated. - Userguy44
Metallica is the most loved metal band, I see your point the most love metal band is also going to be the most hated as well and the Dave Mustaine controversy was pretty big - germshep24
