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 Adele 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. - AnimeDrawer

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? - Cartoonfan202

I've never heard any hate regarding Adele. The only thing I can think over the top of my head is that I personally get tired of her music quickly. - lucario_ninetales

2 Lady GaGa Lady GaGa Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, known professionally as Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She is the first female artist to ever since Cher to get nominated by the Grammys and Emmys . In 2013, during her era on Artpop, she was chosen to perform in a concert from iTunes . 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. - AnimeDrawer

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? - Cartoonfan202

3 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.

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. - AnimeDrawer

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. - Cartoonfan202

4 David Bowie David Bowie David Robert Jones was an English singer born in London on January 8, 1947, the son of a fundraiser and a waitress. He died in New York on January 10, 2016 at the age of 69, a hero to millions. 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. - Cartoonfan202

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

5 Justin Bieber Justin Bieber Justin Drew Bieber (born March 1, 1994) is a Canadian singer, song writer, and record producer. He currently resides in Ontario, Canada (despite once claiming he was Part-Indian) and he is Christian. He is the son of an author, Pattie Mallet. more.

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. - naFrovivuS

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? - Cartoonfan202

Honestly, I don't find his new music any better or improved, he sounds equally as bad as his old music, unlike the popular opinion. Except his music got more boring and less annoying, but still bad. However, he gets way too much hate. Dahvie Vanity is a way worse singer than him, so is Kodak Black, Tyga, Chris Brown, and Cupcakke. Plus, people want him dead, which is just messed up in reality, that needs to stop. - AnimeDrawer

6 Fall Out Boy 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 Rihanna Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian 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.

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. - Cartoonfan202

8 Kesha Kesha Kesha (formerly known as Ke$ha) was born in Los Angeles, United States. She is best known for her hits like Timber, Tik Tok, and We R Who We R. Kesha is an animal rights activist and she works for H.S.I. (Humane Society International). Kesha also stands up for L.G.B.T. rights in America

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

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

9 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is a Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band released their first album in 1999 and was well received by critics and fans. The group gained success after the release of their second studio album, "Iowa". more.

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

10 One Direction 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. - AnimeDrawer

I hate One Direction and I hate it when one of their songs plays in the store. But are they really the worst band of all time? Blood on the Dance Floor is much worse than them. I haven't listen to BrokenCYDE or Limp Bizkit yet but I hear they are bad, so they are most likely worse than 1D. 1D is basically the band version of JB. Also, they are on a hiatus so they're not making music, and one of their members, Harry Styles, is making good songs like Sign of the Times. - Cartoonfan202

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 Guns N' Roses 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

12 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American alternative metal/metalcore (early) 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.

She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart in the Disney Channel television series Hannah Montana in 2006. Her father Billy Ray Cyrus also starred in the show.

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. - Cartoonfan202

14 Meghan Trainor Meghan Trainor

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

15 Creed Creed Creed is an American rock band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consists 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 cupcakKe cupcakKe Elizabeth Eden Harris, better known by her stage name, cupcakKe, is a rapper, singer, and songwriter. She was born on May 31, 1997 in Chicago, United States. Although she is best known for her sexually explicit lyrics, cupcakKe was raised in a church and is still a devout Christian.

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

17 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. 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 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

18 Rebecca Black 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".

Friday was horrible, but is Rebecca Black still relevant anymore? Rebecca Black is a one-hit wonder at best and the rest of her songs are mediocre. She shouldn't be higher than Dahvie Vanity and Chris Brown on the Worst Singers list. - Cartoonfan202

She's not relevant anymore so she isn't getting hate anymore. - Skullkid755

People still call her one of the worst singers ever because of Friday...and she's just mediocre. - DCfnaf

19 Bon Jovi 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
