The Contenders

11 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor

Although right now mainstream pop is eh for me, it was in a horrid state in 2014 and 2015. Meghan Trainor is one of the contributors to that horrid state, among others. - SwagFlicks

Can't bloody stand Meg, but to be fair, pop was already in an abysmal state by the time she showed up. - PositronWildhawk

Absolutely, completely, and utterly ruined mainstream pop, a section of the genre I was already starting to get shaky on. - WonkeyDude98

Meghan Trainor is one of the few talented young artists in the pop industry right now. She's most definitely not the one that ruined pop music.

12 Nickelback 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.

Don't you think that the name of the list should have been"bands that ruined their own bands"? One band can't ruin whole genre.. - Ananya

I never heard a Nickelback song because their songs are not played in my country. - malamJONES

Ruined Rock music enough said.

Honestly 100 or even 1000 bands like nickelback can't ruin rock.Rock was raised by bands like pink floyd,queen,led zeppelin,beatles,the rolling stones,the who,deep purple,AC/DC,eagles,U2,foo fighters,nirvana....So one single band can't even ruin rock a bit. - zxm

13 Katy Perry Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson (Katy Perry) was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. Katy Perry is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF. more.

Pop was already damaged when Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake came... This is why we need Gaga back. - Swellow

14 Coldplay Coldplay Coldplay are a British rock band formed in 1996. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocalist and pianist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer and backing vocalist).

...Wha? Coldplay are one of the only good pop-rock bands out there. - Swellow

Worse than Bieber? What's wrong with your mind, people? - ndrnads20

Coldplay isn't even bad. - AnonymousChick

Coldplay is quite good.the only problem is that they have changed their music genres a lot.And another reason is most of the good songs of them are underrated.So people often miss those songs.So I don't think that they are that bad (my opinion) - zxm

15 Silento Silento
16 Jay Z Jay Z Shawn Corey Carter, known by his stage name JAY-Z, is an American rapper, entrepreneur and investor. He is best known for his album Reasonable Doubt.

From Reasonable Doubt to Unfinished Business he was a great rapper. Then, his music started becoming worse and worse.

17 The Black Eyed Peas The Black Eyed Peas The Black Eyed Peas is an American hip hop group, consisting of rappers,, Taboo, and singer Fergie.
18 David Guetta David Guetta

She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys. She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching more.

She's no Lady Gaga, but she'll do in a pinch. I'd take her over NSYNC, Britney Spears, and any other lame-o of the 90s. - Swellow

She's literally the reason I think Pop music died after the 90's ended.

She is worse than Falling In Reverse. She is worst. - Marvel_1William
