Top Ten Music Artists that Should Stop Getting Hate

Some of the artists I've put on the list are necessarily good, but some people take their hate too far and this is a list of music artists that should stop getting hate.

The Top Ten

1 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.

Nickelback is not an awful band,not great though. People only hate Chad Kroeger because they think he sings like a redneck, yet he does not sing so bad. Other than Rock Star, their songs are not even bad, they are alright.

I included Nickelback because of the number of people on this website who constantly defend Nickelback. And I know that this will skyrocket to number one, so yeah. Nickelback has an incredibly divisive reputation. Everyone loves them and everyone hates them. However, are they really the worst band of all time? To be honest, BOTDF makes them look like Queen.

I'm extremely neutral on this band. I don't like them, but I don't hate them.

2 Lady Gaga Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. more.

People hate her because she wears weird clothes. But who the heck cares about what she wears? She can actually sing at least, not like Taylor Swift and Britney Spears.

Taylor isn't completely terrible at singing though. Listen to her country music. - DCfnaf

Her...appearance is why she's a bad singer? - DCfnaf

Admin, what happened to my description for her?

3 Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles more.

Some people hate Adele just because she is overweight. Her being overweight does not make her bad, in fact she is one of the most talented singers of today, great performer. If she was skinny like Selena Gomez, would she have as much complaints about her looks? Probably not. That just shows how messed up the world can be.

I'm not sure if it's that people hate her, I think it's just that people may dislike her music because it's ballads and not rock and metal like most of the site is into. Personally, I love her and her music, she's way better than other pop artists of this generation, and even metalheads can agree - DCfnaf

Admin, why did you take away my description for her as well?

I like Adele very much
Why do people hate her?

4 David Bowie David Robert Jones, known professionally as David Bowie (January 8, 1947 - January 10, 2016) was an English singer born in London, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He is credited for his experimental and creative musical discography which has won praise and accolades for many critics and fans. more.

David Bowie is not my all-time favorite singer, but David Bowie was a legend and legends do not deserve to be disrespected. Why is his album "Blackstar" #2 on Worst Albums? It's not even that bad of an album? Easily one of the most overhated singers on this website.

It was really the person who made the list's fault for putting Blackstar at the front of the Worst Albums of 2016 list. Then when people saw that, they accidentally voted for the item to write an opposing comment. - Mcgillacuddy

This and any other artist the "Visitor" hates belongs on this list - christangrant

He’s a legend

5 Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, songwriter, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada and is Christian. He is the son of author Pattie Mallette. more.

Why is Justin Bieber at the top of every negative list on his site? There is literally no way that a documentary about Justin Bieber is the single worst film of all time and is worse than Freddy Got Fingered, The Last Airbender, and The Human Centipede. There is no way that a book about Justin Bieber is the worst book of all time. He is not the most evil person in history. Why do you people think his birthday was the worst event in history?

I can't believe he is still #1 on the Worst Singers list.

Every Worst list out there he's #1. All because he released a few annoying song and has a bad attitude. He shouldn't be near the most Evil People. His documentary shouldn't even be in the top 10 of the worst movies list. Why the hell is he #1 on Worst Singers? He's completely mistreated. Give the hate a break, it's not funny anymore.

There are way worse music artists than him and yet he is treated worse than Mao Zedong. His haters are drug addicts. - DCfnaf

Dang it, admin! Why did you have to delete my description for him too?

6 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop rock band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.

True, they should not get as much hate as they get. They're awesome. - DCfnaf

7 Kesha Kesha Rose Sebert (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born on March 1st, 1987 in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. more.

I can't believe Kesha wasn't on here earlier. Let's explain why she doesn't deserve her hate:

1. Her new music is awesome and deserves its praise for being meaningful and well-made.
2. Her older music was all meant to be joke music. It wasn't done just for the sake of it, but rather to make people laugh. Wish it didn't fail because if you watch the music videos for stuff like "Blow" and "Stephen", you'll know that it was satire.
3. The Dr. Luke controversy

Kesha is one of the best pop artists nowadays, and yet she still gets hate for "always talking about sex and parties". - DCfnaf

I used to hate her because I was one of those people that thought she couldn't sing, but "Praying" left me completely speechless.

8 Slipknot Slipknot is an American Alternative/ Nu Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band is best known as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of American Alternative Metal during the late 1990s - 2000s and are distinguishable by the band's clothing choices, consisting of black/red jumpsuits and horror more.

People hate Slipknot? That's a thing? Seriously? - OnyxDash

9 Guns N' Roses Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band from Los Angeles formed in 1985. The classic lineup, as signed to Geffen Records in 1986, consisted of vocalist Axl Rose, lead guitarist Slash, rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin, bassist Duff McKagan, and drummer Steven Adler. Apart from hard rock they are also more.

Chinese Democracy was almost 10 Years ago get over it besides it wasn't as bad as most people think - christangrant

Guns N' Roses are legendary. - maarilynmaanson

10 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. The group signed with Simon Cowell's record label Syco Records more.

While it is true that they aren't the worst band ever they did a Led Zeppelin and Ripped off loads of songs even their most popular songs are rip offs including What Makes You Beautiful and Best Song Ever - christangrant

One Direction makes cheesy songs about girls, however, they are not the worst band ever. At least the members are okay at singing on a technical standard, even though they kinda suck in my opinion. BOTDF is far worse with sexual and disgusting lyrics and singers who cannot sing at all.

I can't believe there are people out there who think One Direction is a worse band than Blood on the Dance Floor!! Do people seriously think "Baby you light up my world like nobody else" is a dumber lyric than "It's WRONG WRONG WRONG LIKE GAGA'S GOT A DING DONG"? How? - DCfnaf

The Contenders

11 Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. Born in Saint Michael and raised in Bridgetown, she first entered the music industry by recording demo tapes under the direction of record producer Evan Rogers in 2003. She ultimately signed a recording contract with Def Jam Recordings after auditioning more.

She kind of deserves most of the hate she gets. She has one of the worst voices in the music industry and is an example of how anyone can make it as a "singer" today even with a lack of talent. I will admit she has a few decent songs but I can't help thinking they'd be even better if someone else sang them. Like, rihanna in love the way you lie sounds like a little girl whining. - DaWyteNight

Five words guys. "Love The Way You Lie" - DCfnaf

Rihanna is kind of overhated on this website, to me. Her song "We Found Love" is hated only for being overplayed, when its actually not that bad.


Shape of You is a boring, dull sex narrative with dumb lyrics. I hate it for being overplayed because it's a bad song, and bad songs shouldn't get played on the radio. We Found Love is a decent song. Plus, Rihanna isn't always naked in her music videos.

We found love is repetitive as hell. It's also hard to understand her in the verses. - Bammer73

12 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums). more.
13 Meghan Trainor Meghan Elizabeth Trainor is an American singer and songwriter. Trainor's work has been recognized with several awards and nominations, including a Grammy Award, Music Business Association's Breakthrough Artist of the Year accolade and two Billboard Music Awards.

Let's address some of the undeserved hate that her singles get:

"All About That Bass" is accused of being skinny shaming when it actually isn't. The "skinny b*tches" line is followed up by a "nah, I'm just playing" line right afterwards, so that is not shaming at all. As for the "silicone Barbie doll" part, the whole purpose of that was for her to say, "I'm not skinny, so if you are into skinny people...go ahead and move along because I'm not skinny." I'm not saying this wasn't poorly executed, I'm just saying that these were her intentions.

"Lips Are Movin" is considered sexist...WHERE? There is literally no line from what I'm seeing that is sexist. The song is attacking ONE MAN and saying that this ONE MAN is a liar and is untrustworthy. She NEVER MENTIONED the entire gender in the song!

"Dear Future Husband" deserves its hate, the hate for "No" is honestly justified to me, and I can ...more - DCfnaf

14 Pitbull Armando Christian Pérez, better known by his stage name Pitbull, is a Grammy (and Latin Grammy) winning Cuban-American rapper, songwriter and record producer.
15 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.

Why do people still hate creed they broke up years ago and all the members have done good things since their split - christangrant

16 Whitney Houston Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, Guinness World Records cited her as the most awarded female act of all time. Houston is one of pop music's best-selling music artists of all-time, with an estimated 170–200 more.

If you hate Whitney's singing then your really high!

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 more.

She looks like an angel in that picture.

Look at that picture. She looks so happy and beautiful in Malibu. She is also clean and isn't on drugs anymore. At least she made some great songs on "Bangerz" like "FU" and "Wrecking Ball". - DCfnaf

Miley Cyrus went downhill from 2013 to 2015 because she released bad albums like Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz, and Bangerz. Almost all of the songs were awful. She became a twerking, sex-crazed freak. Her worst song was "Dooo It! " However, Miley Cyrus isn't bad anymore. She regrets making disgusting songs and now is making good, clean songs like "Malibu" and "Inspired" Anyone who thinks she is still a disgusting freak needs a reality check.

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

She's actually pretty good. Her country music has quite a bit of meaning to it and it's not all just breakup songs. "Bad Blood" was awful, but not her beautiful country songs and some of her pop such as "Style" and "Blank Space". - DCfnaf

20 Bon Jovi Bon Jovi is a hard rock band formed in 1983, which had a streak of successful albums in the late 1980s. The band originally consisted of lead vocalist Jon Bon Jovi, guitarist Ritchie Sambora (left in 2013), bassist Alec John Such (left in 1994), keyboard David Bryan, and drummer Tico Torres. The band's more.

I never understood the hate this band gets - christangrant

Um...who the hell added them? - DCfnaf

Nah, her music deserves hate, it sucks, it is some of the worst music I have ever listened to.

Several of her songs carry good messages, and not all of her songs are about sex. You can't just listen to Deepthroat and say that you hate the artist

She's worse than cardi b and that says something - DaWyteNight
