Top 10 Music Artists with Annoying Stereotypes

Ah stereotypes are so annoying, regardless of what they're related to. I'll be focusing on some stereotypes made on a couple of artists, if I missed one feel free to add one. But basically a stereotype is a false generalization about something or someone that is ultimately not true.

The Top Ten

1 Nickelback - Their songs have no meaning, they have no talent, and etc. Nickelback - Their songs have no meaning, they have no talent, and etc. 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 don't agree with any of those stereotypes, because songs like: Because of You and Just to Get High do have meaning. Because of You, is a song about self harm, Just to Get High is about the dangers of drug addiction. Plus they aren't talentless, and their hate gets really annoying.

Feed the Machine seemed fairly meaningful and showed they had talent.

2 Linkin Park - All of their songs sound the same, all of their songs are edgy, and etc. Linkin Park - All of their songs sound the same, all of their songs are edgy, and etc. Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture of Alternative ...read more.

Not all of their songs sound the same, a few might but not all of them do. Also songs like: Leave Out all the Rest, My December, Shadow of the Day, Iridescent, Burning in the Skies, Castle of Glass, Roads Untraveled, and etc. are not edgy.

Why do people call Linkin Park talentless? - TheDarkOne_221b

Because people think they are either that or they're hipsters.

I agree. Also, Guilty All Te Same doesn't sound as same as Hybrid Theory because this song and all of Hunting Party sound a lot like a Final Fantasy game. - TheDarkOne_221b

Linkin Park is good. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

3 Three Days Grace - They're emo Three Days Grace - They're emo Three Days Grace is a Canadian rock band formed in Norwood, Ontario in 1992 with a line-up consisting of guitarist and lead vocalist Adam Gontier, drummer and backing vocalist Neil Sanderson, and bassist Brad Walst. Their original name was Groundswell until they changed it to their current name in 1997. ...read more.

Not really emo, more hard rock - CharismaticKat

Not emo at all... and nothing about them screams emo to me.

4 Green Day - They sold out, they pander to emos, they're not punk and etc. Green Day - They sold out, they pander to emos, they're not punk and etc. Green Day are an American pop punk, punk rock, and alternative rock band formed in East Bay, California in 1987. The members include Billie Joe Armstrong (vocals and guitar), Mike Dirnt (bass), Tré Cool (drums) and Jason White (guitar) . Green Day are associated with punk rock, pop punk and alternative ...read more.

I don't see how they're sellouts. - CharismaticKat

Trying a different music style is not selling out, also they don't pander to "emos", and they definitely are punk considering how they have the aggressive "I DON'T CARE" punk attitude.

5 Marilyn Manson - He's satanic Marilyn Manson - He's satanic Brian Hugh Warner, better known by his stage name Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, actor, painter, multimedia artist, author, and former music journalist.

I think he is to be honest. Not just musicwise but the way he acts. - CharismaticKat

I don't see how he's "satanic".

He's controversial, but I don't think he's devil's music.

6 AC/DC - All their songs sound the same AC/DC - All their songs sound the same AC/DC are a Australian hard rock band, formed in November 1973 by brothers Malcolm and Angus Young, who continued as members until Malcolm's illness and departure in 2014 . They were fronted by Bon Scott until his untimely death due to alcohol poisoning in 1979, after which they hired Brian Johnson ...read more.

True to a extent.

Kinda true - CharismaticKat

7 Radiohead - Only has two good albums titled The Bends and OK Computer

Kid A also is good - DarkBoi-X

Still kind of true though - xandermartin98

8 Kesha - All of her songs are about partying, or sex Kesha - All of her songs are about partying, or sex 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

Pretty disprovable if you've heard any of the music she released in 2017.

9 Justin Bieber - He can't sing, he's the worst thing in existence, he's a abomination and etc. Justin Bieber - He can't sing, he's the worst thing in existence, he's a abomination and etc. 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. ...read more.

Yeah I know it's annoying to include him on every list in existence... but Christ the Bieber has gotten very stale. I'm no fan of him, but he's not the worst thing ever made... and he can sing it's just very mediocre.

He's mediocre - CharismaticKat

I disagree! He CAN sing! But he's still the worst thing in the world. HAHA not a fan, but he can sing better than lil pump. *wink wink* JK

BOTDF, Kylie Minogue, Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus are much worse than Justin Bieber. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

10 Eminem - He's always angry and yelling, he's a wigger Eminem - He's always angry and yelling, he's a wigger Eminem, born Marshall Bruce Mathers III, is an American rapper, actor and music producer born on October 17, 1972 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Eminem has sold over 300 million records making him the bestselling hip-hop artist of all time. In addition to his solo career, he is a member of D12 and (with Royce ...read more.

The yelling part I agree with, but the wigger part ain't true. - CharismaticKat

He might be aggressive in a lot of songs, but not all of them. He doesn't act black either, so he's not a wigger...

The Contenders

11 Imagine Dragons - Their songs are bland Imagine Dragons - Their songs are bland 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.

This is more of a true stereotype, because their music production is bland and none of their songs are anything past mediocre.

12 My Chemical Romance - They're Emo My Chemical Romance - They're Emo My Chemical Romance was an American rock band from Jersey City, New Jersey, active from 2001 to 2013. For much of their career, the band consisted of lead vocalist Gerard Way, guitarists Ray Toro and Frank Iero, bassist Mikey Way, and drummer Bob Bryar.

For every body saying that they're emo, understand that emo is a genre, and one that My Chemical Romance isn't. Just because they get labled as emo doesn't make them emo. Do you want to know why they get refered to as emo? Because their first album had a lot of elements of acutal emo. If you want to try out true emo, listen to Rites of Spring or Cap'n Jazz. And stop judging an artist because of their style. Even if you aren't a fan, give them the respect they deserve. I've listened to a few of their non-singles, and some of those lyrics are awesome. They're not a band I listen to much, but I could probably get into them someday. Another problem is that people judge and artist's whole discography after listening to a few singles. Sometimes you have to dive much deeper to find the true gems. I used to hate this band simply because I thought it was an "emo band" but then I actually gave them a chance, and I learned to respect them. I haven't listened to too many of their songs, but ...more

They're actually pop punk and post-hardcore with a little bit alternative. - XxembermasterxX

They are emo though...

13 Evanescence - All of their songs try too hard, their music is generic, and etc. Evanescence - All of their songs try too hard, their music is generic, and etc. Evanescence is an American rock band founded in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1995 by singer/pianist Amy Lee and guitarist Ben Moody.

I majorly disagree with all of the stereotypes thrown at Evanescence, they're probably one of the most varied 2000s rock bands out there especially with The Open Door.

14 Drake - He never actually raps

Go listen to Look Alive and then come back - CharismaticKat

15 Taylor Swift - All of her songs are about break ups Taylor Swift - All of her songs are about break ups Taylor Alison 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 a documentary about ...read more.

Not a fan of her music... but not all of her songs are about guys she dated.

Have you heard the song Ronan that's about a person dying of cancer?

16 Nicki Minaj - She's talentless, all of her songs are about sex, and etc. Nicki Minaj - She's talentless, all of her songs are about sex, and etc. Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian American rapper/pop music artist. Nicki is most known for songs like "Anaconda", "Only", "Truffle Butter", "Super Bass" and "Stupid Hoe" . Her real name is Onika Tanya Maraj. She was born on December 8, 1982 in Saint James Trinidad and Tobago. ...read more.

Granted she has made a few songs about sex... but surprisingly she made a decent song called Grand Piano something I honestly wouldn't expect from her. Not all of her songs are about sex, but the ones that are definitely suck. She has talent, but chooses to not show it and it's frustrating.

Even if she's not a great musician, she is a good VA. - Swellow

She has talent, but she wastes it on crappy songs like “Anaconda” and “Stupid Hoe”. - 3DG20

17 Metallica - They are sellouts

Don't even get me started, on this... it's annoying as hell.

18 Trippie Redd - All he says is Big 14 and screams

He doesn't scream, he sings and is good at it. If you don't like his music style then go and listen to Eminem who screams way more than him and shut up about it. Trippie is talented and he DOES rap, he just doesn't do it in all his songs. - CharismaticKat

19 Lil Pump - All his songs are trash

Most are. The only songs that are tolerable by him are Esketit, Drug Addicts, and Welcome To The Party. - CharismaticKat

His songs are trash though.

20 Linkin Park - They're sellouts Linkin Park - They're sellouts Linkin Park is an American rock band formed in Agoura Hills, California, in 1996. The members currently include Mike Shinoda (vocals, keyboards, rhythm guitar), Brad Delson (guitar), Dave "Phoenix" Farrell (bass), Joe Hahn (DJ) and Rob Bourdon (drums). Linkin Park are associated with a mixture of Alternative ...read more.
