Top 10 Music Artists with the Worst Fanbases

The Top Ten
1 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.

2 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 ...read more.
3 5 Seconds of Summer 5 Seconds of Summer are an Australian pop-rock band from Sydney, Australia, that formed in 2011. 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 ...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.

4 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.

5 Nicki Minaj Onika Tanya Maraj, known professionally as Nicki Minaj (born December 8, 1982) is a Trinidadian/American rapper / pop music artist. Minaj is most known for her songs such as "Anaconda", "Super Bass", "Starships" and her feature on "Bang Bang". ...read more.

Always crying and playing victim because Nicki never win a Grammy or never have a solo #1 hit. Already tired with how they behave in social media.

Her fans are as terrible as she is.

6 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 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. ...read more.

They are delusional for thinking Taylor is still the most relevant artist in the industry when in fact, outside of her big fandom, no one really listen to Taylor's music anymore.

I lost my 'friends' because I told them I didn't like a song from her.

8 Kanye West Kanye Omari West is an American rapper, songwriter, and fashion designer. He was born on June 8, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. 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.

They defend his actions despite being objectively wrong, he claims he's the biggest rapper, the second Jesus, he said slavery is a choice and trashed Taylor Swift at the AMAs despite her song regularly winning.

9 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.

I remember seeing a comment on YouTube saying "Whoever thinks the Beatles are overrated should get a lobotomy", which is damn harsh. Overrated doesn't exactly mean bad.

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.

10 Eminem 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.

If he wasn't a white rapper, at least half of his ignorant fans would not care about him. His career benefited from the same thing that made Vanilla Ice, Macklemore, and the Beastie Boys very famous rappers. Most of their fans are racists. The only reason Eminem is given more praise by racist fans is because he released more big singles than Vanilla Ice, Macklemore, or the Beastie Boys. The fanbase of all those overrated fools would call Nicki Minaj a devine goddess if she was a white rapper.

Their fans think that eminem is superior and they attack every kind of new school music. The fact that Eminem isn't even close to being the best rappers of all time but he is voted as the goat in various websites tells how bad his fanbase is.

His fans really need to quit blowing on this guy. He's not that good. Many people, even Eminem himself, knows that if he wasn't white, more than half of his fans would not even care about him. Eminem has the worst blowhard fanbase of any rapper.

Most of his fans are biased against other rappers. There had even been claims that many eminem fans are racist.

The Contenders
11 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera, known professionally as Ariana Grande, is an American singer and actress. She was born on June 26th 1993 in Boca Raton, Florida to Joan Grande and Edward Butera. She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. ...read more.

Arianators occasionally attacking Lady Gaga and Little Monsters, they have this superiority complex for thinking their idol is the main reason of someone's success.

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

The worst of the worst, they won't allow you to dislike that garbage BTS band, they always use the race card to defend them, they have threatened people to sue them if they say something negative about them and they will mass join your tweets/comments as soon as you criticize them. They also araea frauds because they fake streams to give them "hits" nobody besides them listens to.

Should be way ahead of everyone, they'll literally accuse you of being racist if you hate BTS and will fight each other over who's the best member.

This fandom consists of unstable teenagers who don't understand the act of kindness even though BTS teach them to do so.

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

13 Twenty One Pilots Twenty One Pilots is an American musical duo that is originally from Columbus, Ohio, who are best known for their songs "Stressed Out", "Heathens" and "Ride". Currently there are two members, Tyler Joseph (lead vocals, piano, keyboards, synthesizers, ukulele, bass and guitar) and Josh Dun (drums and ...read more.
14 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.

His fans believe he's the next Michael Jackson and defend when he abused Rihanna... Enough said.

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

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

15 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.

That comment about Elvis is completely true. Elvis is a loser, and his fans do hold a big double standard for him. Also, racism played a big role in the double standard that surrounds him.

Woah! To the person who's sayin' that Elvis is a p£do, do you have evidence? I mean he's the best selling solo artist in history! But yeah, his fanbase is worse, Elvis is not a loser.

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.

16 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 is overrated, and she definitely should be at the top of this list. The fanbase of most of the other singers on this list is sane compared to the Beyhive. Her fans think that she's a wonderful singer, despite evidence that contradicts that. A truly wonderful singer wouldn't need to lip-sync nor use auto-tune in their performances. It's also stupid that her fans say that she worked hard to get where she is. If dancing half naked on stage is working hard, then strippers work hard everyday. The big differences is that strippers get paid much less, and they're not lip-synching something that was written by other people. The Beyhive even think that Beyonce is a standard among female musicians. That's stupid, since she wasn't even the first female musician that became famous for doing what she had done to become famous. Obviously, the ignorant Beyhive wants to pretend that Madonna never happened. I really think that the Beyhive would go as far as to being fake when it comes to ...more

A fanbase that pulls the race card Every time someone criticizes Beyoncé, they also try to antagonize other stans like Rihanna or Christina Aguilera's despite them being a lot nicer, you can say your opinion without them mocking you. They also believe she's more talented than Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Aretha Franklin, Celine Dion etc when she's not even the best of her generation and no, having a great technique isn't enough.

Beyonce is fake. F-A-K-E! FAKE! Many of her fans are fake also. Most of Beyonce's fans would not even care about her if she didn't have her looks. Members of the media need to quit thinking that she's not fake.

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

17 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!

18 Nirvana Nirvana was an American grunge band that was formed in Aberdeen, Washington in 1987. Nirvana disbanded after Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. The drummer of the band, David Grohl, went on to start the Foo-Fighters, an alternative rock band. ...read more.
19 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.

The most obnoxious people. Will literally pray for you to go to hell and send death threats to you if you even say the slightest thing about Led Zeppelin. I've gotten so much backlash over this stupid band and it's obnoxious fanbase.

20 Michael Jackson Michael Joseph Jackson was an American singer, dancer, and songwriter born on August 29, 1958, in Gary, Indiana, and passed away on June 25, 2009. He donated (at least) a remarkable 500,000,000 dollars to charity. Michael is also known as The King of Pop (a title given to him by Elizabeth Taylor) or ...read more.

Honestly I don't care how big he was, his fans need to learn how to handle an opinion, I like him a lot too but as soon as someone doesn't see him as the greatest singer ever they start mass hating really hard.

21 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.

22 Radiohead Radiohead are an English rock band from Abingdon, Oxfordshire, formed in 1985. The band consists of Thom Yorke (lead vocals, guitar, piano, keyboards), Jonny Greenwood (lead guitar, keyboards, other instruments), Colin Greenwoood (bass guitar), Phil Selway (drums), and Ed O'Brien (guitar).

Most pretentious fanbase without a shadow of a doubt.
Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against Radiohead the band, but their fans?
Ugh... Radiohead could put out an album of ten tracks of farts and their fanbase would hail it as the greatest album since their previous release.
It doesn't help that reviewers are too afraid to say anything bad about anything they do, out of fear of being verbally castrated by their fans.

Should be in top ten

23 Green Day Green Day are an American pop punk, punk 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 rock. Some of their ...read more.

25 Hayley Williams Hayley Nichole Williams is an American singer, songwriter and musician. She is best known as the lead vocalist, occasional keyboardist and primary songwriter of the American rock band Paramore. In 2020 she started a solo career.
