Top Ten Music Artists You Can't Criticize Without Being AttackedSwellow According to the logic of this website, hating these is the ultimate sin, when it truly isn't.
(WARNING - This list is from the maker's perspective. Rude/mockery/vicious comments will be reported.)
The Top Ten
Over loved by teenage boys who are pumped up on their first surge of testosterone, and suddenly imagine that they are incredibly wise and important.
Yes of course, criticizing for good reasons is always fine. We should ask, what exactly are good reasons, and who gets to decide if they are good.
Most Queen fans are OK, but some fans disregard the band's career and simply overpraise Freddie Mercury or ignore a lot of their songs. - Swellow
People who like medicore mid-level bands get all butthurt at the praise Freddie and Queen get here. They assume if something is too popular, it is no longer cool, and they can't be associated with the plebes who like such common fare.
Thank you, Swellow! I like the Beatles, always have BUT they are overrated. They are! And whenever I voice this opinion, I have to watch my back from the attack of the Giant Killer Beatles Fans. - Britgirl
As songwriters ( Lyrics and melodies ) they were unique and therefor they can not be overrated. As musicians on the other hand they are pretty overrated. None of them were exeptional instrument players.
Here at top tens there are way more attacks on the beatles and attacks on beatle fans than there ever are attacks on the haters in return
I see it just the opposite, Beatle haters go on the attack all the time, and seem surprised at having their opinions challenged even sometimes. Lots of Beatle-love at TTT, but the majority of Beatle-hate is just left alone. Truthfully, why would anyone care if you like them, or some other band, or none of the above?V 2 Comments
If LZ is over-rated, then every band is over-rated. They are in the top five music acts of all time, with a legitimate claim to the top spot overall. Nothing is perfect, but they are great, and even though many people do not like them just means that even more people do not like other music acts.
This zep fan admits that Led Zeppelin done many bad things.And they are overrated(little bit of ) - zxm
"She is actually good", so you are saying she is better than The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and the other artists listed, which justifies her fans lashing out.
Intolerant to their idol getting bashed. They treat her like a special deity when she's nothing more than a mediocre singer. - Swellow
I don't know. Although the fans are like any other fans from any other fandoms and will attack you for the hate, she actually is good. - AnonymousChick
Ok honestly I LOVE Melanie Martinez and twenty one pilots. But you gotta admit out of most modern singers/bands like Taylor swift,Justin Bieber, one direction etc THEY ARE AMAZING! Ok I get the people on this website don't like either TØP or mel but seriously have more of an open mind! Now I'm not saying I hate classic legendary bands like green day, nirvana, the Beatles etc cause I love them. But they are some of the only good artists out there today. Sorry for ranting. It's just the truth.V 2 Comments
Metallica is amazing. - jack2244
I usually get downvotes when I say this band is overrated. - zxm
St. Anger - Nickelstickman
She's just a former Destiny's Child member! I love most of her songs! She's so cool, she's popular. - DynastiSugarPop
What is so special about this band? Genre bending has existed before, and artists such as Gorillaz or Zappa did it much better between these two. Then there's the Skeleton Clique, arguably the worst new music artist fanbase. - Swellow
In my opinion they really suck... hear me out on this one. For one, most of their songs consist of what's basically 3 chords. Secondly, their 'relatable' lyrics are as cringe-worthy as they are pathetic. Lastly, their lead singer can't even sing! (Not to mention most of their fan base is absolutely terrible) - Brobusky
Swellow I like you, but you can't call the skeleton clique bad, when Megatronz, Swifities, Katycats, and Melanie Martinez fans exist. Heck, even the Rae Sremmurd fanbase is worse - ProPanda
Quite contrary, actually. You can't LIKE twenty-øne piløts without getting attacked by someone, which is a shame because they really are the best pop group to explode in recent memory.
Also, as someone who's listened to, and liked, Gorillaz, Demon Days, and Plastic Beach, twenty-øne piløts wipe the floor with Gorillaz. - WonkeyDude98
Back when he was alive, he was CONSTANTLY criticized, & attacked! - clusium
I'm probably one of the few people who WON'T attack you if you don't like him. - 906389
Overrated. Not bad, but overrated. - BeatlesFan1964
What a not-so-bad, very good music artist. He is now the King of Pop! - DynastiSugarPop
I don't like some of their songs, such as Crawling. - Swellow
I don't get what's special about this band. THey kinda suck. I also don't like the fanbase because every time someone adds Linkin Park to a WORST list they always say mean things like " WHOEVE ADED LP HAVE NO SOUL. SCREW DEM! "
Just wanna ask the fans: Look, I know you like Linkin Park but there are some people who don't really enjoy them like me. Please respect our opinions. I'm sure we aren't bad people. - AlphaQ
Similar issue to Queen. Since Nirvana is very popular with casual fans, those fans who believe themselves to have superior and more serious musical taste decide that they can't be associated with anything that is so popular.
I admit I liked In Utero, but a lot of people just jump onto the Nirvana bandwagon after one listen of Smells Like Teen Spirit. - Swellow
I like Nirvana, but all those damn Tumblr kids treat Cobain like he's the messiah. - BeatlesFan1964
I swear people react to you criticizing Nirvana like you just pissed on Kurt's grave. At least The Beatles, Zep and Queen were good. - NickelstickmanV 2 Comments
This is what I know from a few of his diss tracks: He is VERY AGGRESSIVE when it comes to dissing that it's impossible to beat him in a battle so it's best to give him respect because if you do something bad you're screwed - AlphaQ
He's overrated by people that don't even listen to rap music. He does not represent casual rap. He is part of pop rap, just like Taylor Swift is part of pop country. In my opinion, a person should not say that someone is the best of a certain genre if they don't care about any other part of that genre.
DUde he's counted as hip-hop rap. I think you talking bout Drake cause he pop rap - AlphaQ
I can criticize him for being not up to par with his earlier stuff, even though his recent stuff is good. That being said, I look forward to his new album. - Satire
Eminem is my favorite but why can't I criticize him - HiimmeV 2 Comments
A7X is a good band. talented one. But I think I can handle their criticisms. Well many people don't like them because of their appearances. Though its not a reason to hate a band but still I am OK with it. I am also ready to admit that they are little bit of overrated. - zxm
I personally love Iron Maiden, but I won't attack you for criticizing them. - jack2244
I feel like she's lost what made her voice so powerful, but apparently, hoarse vocals sell. - Swellow
I have noticed that the contemporary radio stations that had not played his music in years are now playing it again.
I'm guessing he's now a broken base; One side thinks he only got famous from his death, while the other doesn't. - Swellow
After his death, I want to listen to his music. - DynastiSugarPop
I personally think Deadmau5 is a bit overrated cause he gets too much recognition. But that doesn't mean he's bad. He's quite fun. 9/10 - AlphaQ
He's not even in the top 5 for electronic music artists. Consistently average compared to artists of the same genre, yet he gets the most attention.
But in the end, he's not bad. - SwagFlicks
Me: "I'm sorry, I just don't like Kendrick Lamar that much."
Random person: "What? You don't like King Kendrick? What is wrong with you! You obviously don't know rap music! Kendrick Lamar is the greatest rapper of our generation and he already has two classics under his name and he is on his way to becoming a legend. He tells stories like nobody else, he's even better than 2Pac! You're wrong for not liking him! "
Me: "I think J Cole is better."
Random person: "How can you think J Cole is better than King Kenny! You're stupid and basic for listening to J Cole when Kendrick is the greatest of the current times! " - DaWyteNight
