Top Ten Music Artists People Hate Because They Think It's Cool to Do So

Remember when you were listening to the radio and that song came on you hadn't heard before and you thought to yourself, "This song is pretty catchy. I think I like it... I wonder who it is." Only to find out it was Miley Cyrus, or Justin Bieber? Of course you can't like them or their music, what would your friends say?

This list isn't saying these artists are good or bad, but it IS saying that people are often told what their opinions will be before they actually make them up for themselves. Whether people are swayed by peer pressure or just jumping on the bandwagon, if they are making value statements about a music artist without giving them (and their music) a fair chance, based solely on the opinions of others, then those statements need to be taken with a grain of salt.

It's time to make up your own minds. You may decide the artist truly IS crap, or you might decide to stand up for your opinion even if it's unpopular. One thing is for sure though: nobody thinks a person who can't make up their own mind is cool.

Social Media.
Did it happen to Aaron Carter, Jesse McCartney, S Club Juniors...NO
Because of social media he gets the hate because people think it's cool to do so.

He actually has a good singing voice, but it's just his reputation and his song "Baby" I totally agree with this list.
This list sums up this website, lol

Can we just agree once and for all that we all hate him for the same reason, so we don't need to go and convince everyone that he's terrible anymore?

He is actually a good singer, the hate he's gotten is truly unnecessary. He isn't awful, he's perfectly fine.

Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian rock band formed in 1995 in Hanna, Alberta, Canada. The band is composed of guitarist and lead vocalist Chad Kroeger, guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair.

I gave them a listen because I heard they were awful. I was surprised they were not that awful and I actually liked several songs, especially Burn It To The Ground - a pretty good hard rock song. Liking several songs didn't make me a fan of theirs but at least I know they aren't awful.

I really don't get why they deserve as much hate as they got. At least they put more effort into their music than most of today's pop artists who don't even write and produce their own songs.

I hate them because, as a Canadian, I'm forced to put up with hearing their music on the radio in every shop and restaurant.

They're...okay at best. They've put more effort into writing songs than even Twenty One Pilots, from what I've listened to.

Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her single "Friday," which was once the most disliked video on YouTube. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

She doesn't deserve the hate she gets

Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". ...read more.

It depends a lot people hate her but there are also people who unironically call call her the queen of rap and the like. I am not a fan but I don't really hate her beyond a handful of songs.

She's the best, and y'all probably have only heard Stupid Hoe and Anaconda (and Only) she's very pretty, nice, she's great.

I hate her because she is a mutated Barbie doll.

No its because she makes awful music

Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Hemsworth (born Destiny Hope Cyrus), known as Miley Cyrus, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She was born on November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, to Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus. Her voice type is Mezzo-Soprano and has 4 octaves. She became a teen idol starring as the ...read more.

I don't like Miley yet I think that Wrecking Ball is a good song.

She has changed so much!

Rae Sremmurd Rae Sremmurd is an American hip hop duo, composed of two brothers, Khalif "Swae Lee" Brown (born June 7, 1995) and Aaquil "Slim Jxmmi" Brown (born December 29, 1993). They are best known for their platinum singles "No Flex Zone" and "No Type". They are signed to Mike WiLL Made-It's label, "EarDrummer ...read more.

Actually, Rae Sremmurd are terrible singers who are hated for their fart-like beats and stereotypical "brag about the luxury you've got" lyrics, but the worst thing is their voices, where they sound like middle school teenagers who slur out some of the worst lyrics I've actually heard. They aren't even relevant, but at that, they are horrible singers that are hopefully going to be forgotten in the next two years.

No. Rae Sremmurd is the worst band ever. They are talentless teenagers who can't even bother to get a good producer or make proper songs.

False its because they make awful music

One Direction One Direction (commonly abbreviated as 1D) were a British-Irish pop boy band based in London, composed of Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, and previously, Zayn Malik until his departure from the band on 25 March 2015.

They’ve got some cool songs though.

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

If she is a aussie why rap like an american?

No she makes awful music

She combines the sluttyness of Nicki Minaj and the terrible rapping of Drake. I can't stand her singing voice which is why I hate her anyway.

The Contenders
Julia Michaels
Imagine Dragons Imagine Dragons is an American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Imagine Dragons' lineup consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman.

I think Imagine Dragons are slightly overhated.

Sam Hunt Sam Lowry Hunt is an American singer and songwriter. Born in Cedartown, Georgia, Hunt played football in his high school and college years and once attempted to pursue a professional sports career before signing with MCA Nashville in 2014.
Creed Creed was an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consisted of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

I you think Creed is cool to hate then people should go to hell.

Whoever thinks this band is cool to hate should get punched.

I actually like this band!

Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. ...read more.

This is my opinion: she is hated for the wrong reasons

She has lipstick on her teeth. A fashion faux pas.

Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was discovered by Brian "Baby" "Birdman" Williams at a very young age, and was signed to Cash Money Records, where he would be one quarter of the rap group Hot Boys. In the years to follow, he would go on to find his own ...read more.

It's funny that people actually hate Wayne, because he's the stereotype of a modern rapper. He actually started in the 90's and the Carter 3 is on the Rolling Stone top 500 albums of all time. He might have had a bad album (Rebirth), but having classics like the Carter 1 and 2, I believe he is underrated

He used to be decent in the 90s, and Let It Rock wasn't terrible, but when he started getting onto stuff like Love Me and Karate Chop... he went awful.

Lupe Fiasco Wasalu Muhammad Jaco (born February 16, 1982), better known by his stage name Lupe Fiasco, is an American rapper, record producer, and entrepreneur.

Simple Plan Simple Plan is a French-Canadian rock band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released five studio albums.

They might be a bit cheesy but they aren't that bad as people say in my opinion. Their not like the Creed version of Green Day. Simple Plan in a nutshell only gets hated because some of their songs are cheesy. This band has a few songs I like: Welcome to My Life, Your Love is a Lie, When I'm Gone, Perfect, Save You, Astronaut, Singing in the Rain, Opinion Overload and Grow Up. Still though I think their seriously overhated.

Blood on the Dance Floor Blood on the Dance Floor is an American scene duo currently consisting of Dahvie Vanity and Fallon Vendetta that formed in 2006. Former members include Jayy von Monroe (2009-2016) and Garrett Ecstasy (2009). All of them provided vocals to the project. ...read more.

No, they deserve every kind of hate they get. Yeah, they are irrelevant, but that doesn’t mean they made awful music.

Their songs are LEGITIMATELY awful

Paramore Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band currently consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams, guitarist Taylor York, and drummer Zac Farro.

Their older stuff is pretty good their newer stuff though not as good...

Paramore doesn't deserve to be hated, and they aren't cool to hate. Why are they on this list?

I like paramore
