The Top Ten

1 Justin Bieber 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. ...read more.

I wouldn't say that the fans of The Beatles were as aggressive as the Beliebers. There is a big difference with cheering for singers that are great and cheering for Bieber, Lil Wayne, or The Insane Clown Posse. Fans of The Beatles were cheering for real musicians. The Beatles can write great tunes, because they were creative. Also, The Beatles did not use auto-tune nor pretended to sing when they were performing. Dumb fans of Bieber think that he's a great musician when he isn't, and his fans verbally attack people for saying that he's terrible. Also, I don't recall hearing about people that cut themselves for The Beatles.

Of course I agree which one is the better music artist. But on this list I think it does not have an effect on the order if a music artist is good or not. The Beatles fans are very offensive towards people who don't like their music, that's why I left that comment - Alkadikce

I think the maker of this list thought that a music artist needs to be bad in order to make his fanbase bad as well. The Beatles fans are just as aggressive as Beliebers. - Alkadikce

2 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.

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.

It's time to decide if this list is worst music artists or music artists with worst fanbases. - Alkadikce

Eminem has the worst fanbase of any rapper.

His fans are mostly close-minded and racist, even towards other rappers - styLIShT

Many of his fans are racist. Why else would most of his fans not care about other rappers?

The group were originally YouTube celebrities, posting videos of themselves covering songs from various artists during 2011 and early 2012. They rose to international fame while touring with One Direction on the Take ...read more.

I love 5 Seconds of Summer and I am part of the 5SOS fam. But I can admit that some (if not, most) members of the 5SOS fam can be annoying. Even I get annoyed by my own 5SOS fam so that might be saying something.

5 Beyoncé Beyoncé Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter, is an American singer and actress, who started out in the popular pop/r&b girl group Destiny's Child. They had multiple top 5 hits such as "No, No, No", "Say My Name", "Bills, Bills, Bills", "Survivor", "Independent Women", "Bootylicious", and "Jumpin', Jumpin" from ...read more.

Beyonce has the worst fanbase of any female singer.

The "BeyHive" is absolutely THE worst fanbase ever. They harass random people on social media and tell them to kill themselves. - OnMyBlockFan

I think if it weren't for her looks, most of her dumb fans would not even care about her.

How was she not on this list when I first looked at this list? Beyonfake's fanbase is beyond terrible.

6 Miley Cyrus 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.

Perverts, dummies, and nepotism made her one of the most overrated celebrities.

7 Silento Silento Richard Lamar Hawk, better known by his stage name Silentó, is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor. He is best known for his debut single "Watch Me", which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100.

If Lil Wayne can have fans, then so can he.

He has fans? - Userguy44

Her fans are as terrible as she is.

10 Carrie Underwood Carrie Underwood Carrie Marie Underwood is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She rose to fame as the winner of the fourth season of American Idol, in 2005. Her debut album, Some Hearts, was released in 2005.

Why isn't she #1 when her fanbase is literally made up of the KKK!

After West's parents divorced, him and his single mother moved to Chicago, Illinois. At the age of 10, West temporarily moved to Nanjing, China, because his mother was teaching ...read more.
12 Dimash Kudaibergen Dimash Kudaibergen Dinmukhamed Kanatuly Kudaibergen (Commonly known as Dimash Kudaibergen born May 24th, 1994) is a Kazakh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Dimash is best known as a contestant of a talent show "Singer 2017" in China where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide ...read more.

His fans make him seem like god, and can't take any criticisms at all. If you don't like Dimash, you are stupid. Excuse me? Not everyone will like this genre of music, and not everyone will be fascinated by high notes.

Sure, he sound very good, but I bet there are people who can be just as good as him. He is just human, he will make mistakes, he still have places for improvement. He sounded bad when he tries to sing pop, for example. He is great, but his fans made me wary of him.

13 Taylor Swift Taylor Swift 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.

14 Elvis Presley Elvis Presley Elvis Presley was an American musician and actor. Known as "The King" He was mostly known for his number 1 singles including "Heartbreak Hotel" "Hound Dog" "Jailhouse Rock" "Love me Tender" Elvis debuted in the movie "Love me Tender" and focused less on his music and continued that way. ...read more.

A thief, a poser, and a pedophile. His fans have a double standard when it comes down to him. I think if he had committed mass murder, his obsessed fans would still love him. Elvis is dead, and his music should be as dead as he is. He is the king of overrated losers.

15 Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots is an American musical duo that originates from Columbus, Ohio. Currently there are two members. The lead singer, Tyler Joseph, and the drummer, Josh Dun. At the 2016 American Music Awards, they won two AMAs for Favorite Pop/Rock Artist, and Favorite Alternative Artist. Twenty One ...read more.
16 The Beatles The Beatles The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.

Definitely top ten worthy so many of them say it is “ridiculous” to even consider that another artist could be better. They also sometimes say that virtually every later artist would not have become successful without them. This is fairly annoying no matter how many records they sold they don’t have to be the greatest music artists of all time automatically.

17 Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin Led Zeppelin was an English rock band formed in London in 1968. The group consisted of Robert Plant (Vocal), Jimmy Page (Guitar), John Paul Jones (Bass, Keyboard) and John Bonham (Drums). The band's heavy, guitar-driven sound, rooted in blues and psychedelia on their early albums, has earned them recognition ...read more.
18 Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse Insane Clown Posse is an American hip hop, horrorcore and rap rock duo consisting of rappers Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, that was formed in 1989 in Detroit. ...read more.

Their fans are terrible, but at least Insane Clown Posse is not hugely liked. Can you imagine how horrible their fans would get around the web or in public if they were hugely liked? They would make the fans of Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, or even Beyonce seem tame by comparison. It's great that the fanbase of Insane Clown Posse is not that big.

The insane clown posse sucks. Even with the dumb, devoted fans they have, I'm amazed they performed as long as they did.

It's very clear their fanbase is terrible when the feds called their fanbase a gang.

Their fans are as terrible as they are.

He should never be called a great man anymore, because he wasn't even a good person.

20 Lil Wayne Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American hip hop artist and is often referred to as one of the worst rappers of all time.

His fans are as terrible as he is.

22 Bangtan Boys Bangtan Boys BTS, also known as Bangtan Boys, is a seven-member South Korean boy group formed by Big Hit Entertainment.

I apologise to Linkin Park, this has the worst fanbase of all time. BTS Army is just rude. - AlphaQ

24 Linkin Park Linkin Park 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.

The fans are incredibly split on almost anything. You have on the one side, the arrogant HT/Meteora fanboys who hate anything Linkin Park makes after those albums and on the other side, the fans who worship ever single song by the band and even if you don't like a certain song, or certain album, they consider you not a real fan. It's mind-numbing and annoying. - cjWriter1997

25 Kelly Clarkson Kelly Clarkson Kelly Brianne Clarkson is an American singer, songwriter and children's book author. She rose to fame in 2002 after winning the inaugural season of the television series American Idol, which earned her a record deal with RCA Records. Clarkson's debut single, "A Moment Like This", topped the US Billboard ...read more.

Can you believe that her fans actually defend her pedophilic behaviour?

The world's BIGGEST slut-shamers

They slut shame other pop stars every chance they get, first of all. They act like she's the end all be all of singers, even though hundreds, if not thousands, can sing better than her. In fact, lots of R&B singers today can wipe the floor with Kelly Clarkson, but they don't get recognition because they are not white. Speaking of that, many Kelly Clarkson fans are okay with the fact that Kelly Clarkson hates Jewish people. But some pretended that she never even said anything about Ron Paul, nevermind the fact that she praised him before. She claims to support Obama, but I don't trust Kelly on that one. She is from Texas, one of the most racist states in the godforsaken USA, and from a racist town at that. In Texas, you cannot throw a pebble and not hit a sculpture of Obama being hung with a noose. And yes, a vast majority of Texans support Trump 100%; there, being a Ku Klux Klan member is less taboo than supporting Black Lives Matter or even simply speaking about police brutality. ...more

26 Avril Lavigne Avril Lavigne Avril Ramona Lavigne is a Canadian–French singer-songwriter and actress. By the age of 15, she had appeared on stage with Shania Twain; by 16, she had signed a two-album recording contract with Arista Records worth more than $2 million.
27 Chris Brown Chris Brown Christopher Maurice "Chris" Brown (born May 5, 1989) is an American singer, songwriter, dancer and actor. Born in Tappahannock, Virginia, he was involved in his church choir and several local talent shows from a young age. He is most well known for his physical assault towards the singer Rihanna in ...read more.

It's pretty amazing that Chris Brown would still have a fanbase after the brutal beating. Then again, Ike Turner was still able to record music after that movie showed what he had done when he wasn't singing nor playing the guitar, and Ike did that to a much bigger pop star. The music business is really twisted. At least Chris Brown isn't half as liked as he was before that beating. It's really twisted that his most loyal fans would say that Chris Brown can beat them up any day.

Chris Brown is a loser, and the people that defend what he did are losers too.

He has fans that said he could beat them up any day. His loyal fans are terrible.

31 Shawn Mendes Shawn Mendes Shawn Peter Raul Mendes is a Canadian singer-songwriter and model. He attracted a following in 2013, when he began posting song covers on the popular video sharing application Vine.

They don’t stop saying he is the cutest and best singer ever! - Userguy44

His fans can't even take a single criticism of Shawn Mendes. If you saw Spectrum Pulse's review on his latest album Illuminate, the comments from SM's fans on this video were savage, in which most were actually DEATH THREATS! I was like "what the hell has the world come into? " I saw Spectrum Pulse's review on Rae Sremmurd's SremmLife 2 and he gave it a terrible score (I like SremmLife 2 though). It is possible some of the viewers of that review are fans of Rae Sremmurd. Do I see any death threats on that review? NO! So why are there death threats on a Shawn Mendes rant? Why?
Note: keep in mind that I am not saying it's okay for others to send deaththreats, I am saying it's not okay for Shawn Mendes fans to send death threats to others. It's not okay for anyone to send death threats at all but this was taken way too far. - SelfDestruct
