When you viciously beat a famous woman in ways unspeakably horrifying, then turn around and makes songs like Deuces, Look At Me Now, and Loyal, you don't deserve any chances. - WonkeyDude98

It seems since 2011, I gave him a chance for ruining Look At Me Now but he made awful songs and I've given up just after Privacy. I've given him too many chances. - AlphaQ

I've tried to separate the person from the music, which I've somehow done, but his music is so bad that it's really not worth it. - spiritofhiphop

He used to be good, but now his lyrics are awful. He has a decent voice, but sometimes he misuses it and his lyrics ruin the songs. He was good when he had other people writing his music for him, but since he started writing his own material the lyrical content has went way down in quality. - DaWyteNight

2 Jason Derulo Jason Derulo Jason Joel Desrouleaux, better known by his stage name Jason Derulo (an alternate spelling of his surname), is an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. He is best known for his singles such as "Whatcha Say", "Ridin' Solo", "In My Head", "What If", "Wiggle", "Talk Dirty", "Trumpets" and "Want To Want ...read more.

Would you really give Jason DeRulo a chance? Really? No. His voice alone should turn anyone off. - WonkeyDude98

I've gave him quite a few chance. He's alright at best but he can be horrendous at worst. Unfortunately for him, his bad songs outweighs his good ones. - AlphaQ

Mmm watcha say. Mm that you only rode solo while trumpets they go - SirSkeletorThe3rd

No one likes you, your music is about sex and your music is repetitive and all your songs are mainstream garbage,ew! I hate you so much! Your voice is sounds like a dying horse

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.

I've given this guy a chance. I've never been turned on by him, especially with negative exposure, such as I Am A God, Hold My Liquor, Bound 2, and his verse on Forever. I'm done giving him chances. - WonkeyDude98

First three albums were great. Fourth album was really different but still pretty good. Fifth album was horrible, and I don't know why people like it so much. From that album on, Kanye's never been the same. I guess being around a kartrashian made him loos all of his brain cells. - DaWyteNight

I've given him A LOT of chances. It worked and didn't at the same time. He's declined slightly in quality but unlike DeRulo, his good songs outweigh his bad songs. - AlphaQ

4 Drake Drake Aubrey Drake Graham, known professionally as Drake, is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor, born on October 24, 1986 in Toronto, Canada. He started his career on Canadian reality show "Degrassi: The Next Generation".

Drake is a decent artist. Just plagiarizes and is boring. Basically the good version of the lead singer of Led Zeppelin. - AlphaQ

Drake is a decent songwriter, but he just isn't good at rapping.

I've tried giving Drake a chance as an MC but it's never worked. He's just a bad rapper. - WonkeyDude98

5 Miley Cyrus Miley Cyrus Destiny Hope Cyrus, aka Miley Ray Cyrus, was born November 23, 1992, in Franklin, Tennessee, to Tish Cyrus and Billy Ray Cyrus. She is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Miley Cyrus's voice type is Mezzo-Soprano and has 4 octaves. She became a teen idol starring as the character Miley Stewart ...read more.

After BB talk...yeah. - SamuiNeko

I gave her 2 chances, after We Can't Stop and the other one just after 23. I eventually gave up after BB Talk and her Dead Pets which is MUCH worse than Bangerz. - AlphaQ

6 Ariana Grande 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.

I kind of have a guilty pleasure for her. She has a very good voice but she's using it wrong. But I hope that as she matures she will do great things. Plus she's a hottie. - IronSabbathPriest

I've given her a chance after Problem, it's my least favorite song of hers because of Iggy who sounded better than she usually does, Ariana was also good. Anyways, after Problem she remained good so yea...I disagree with this one. - AlphaQ

7 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.

In my case it wasn't exactly 'giving a chance' because you 'give a chance' when many people like a band and recommend it to you. But I read many times Nickelback were dreadful and I got ready to hear "the worst of the worst". Well, it wasn't the worst of the worst. They aren't my cup of tea but I really liked one song - Burn It To The Ground. - Metal_Treasure

They're not that bad actually... - SamuiNeko

8 Madonna Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and businesswoman. She influenced a lot of singers such as: Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna, Beyonce Knowles and Britney Spears . She is known as Queen of Pop and at modern pop culture specifically in 2012 "Madge" or MDNA . She has ...read more.

She still thinks she's 24 but in reality, she's nearly 60. Madonna, you had only 1 song on your new album this year that hit the Billboard 100. A sign that you should retire instead of sucking the life of younger and fresher pop artists? - SirSkeletorThe3rd

She used to be a very good singer and now she is just... what happened? After 2000, she became horrible. - Swellow

She used to be good. but now... - AnonymousChick

Yes, everyone over 50 should be euthanized.
Run Logan, run!

She is best known with her international hit singles ...read more.

I gave her a chance after 21, an album I didn't really like and her weakest album yet. Guess what, she improved. - AlphaQ

I actually gave Adele a chance and she was actually pretty decent. - Swellow

Ugly, fat, can't sing, why is she getting all the attention...?

I didn't even need to give him a chance. He was outstanding all along. His latest work DAMN is the best album of 2016 and 2017. - AlphaQ

Also do I have to mention that To Pimp A Butterfly is the best album of anything between 2011-2016. - AlphaQ

His voice is enough to make me not want to give him any chances. - DaWyteNight

I say Kendrick's #2 all time behind Kanye (fight me boys) - spiritofhiphop

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 ...read more.

Just her name alone makes me very angry and want to throw something against the wall. It still blows my mind how an absolute bimbo with absolutely no talent and absolutely no redeeming qualities is one of the most popular music artists. She can't sing, she doesn't write her music, she is ugly, her voice is absolutely annoying, she has minimal dancing skills and is a spoiled brat. It pisses me off that other singers who have 1,900,000,000 times the talent of this slutty singer and are 1,000,000 times more likable are struggling while this good-for nothing piece of dribble is on top! - DaWyteNight

Linkin Park are associated with a mixture of Alternative ...read more.

Like most people, I went through a phase where I loved Linkin Park. I like to think I've grown out of it now though. - IronSabbathPriest

Used to love Linkin Park but I don't like them at all anymore. - SirSkeletorThe3rd

A $HIT TON of chances have been given since Hybrid Peewee. I gave up after One More Light. - AlphaQ

They're good but they're not THAT good.

Never been an Usher fan, but hey, he's had some decent songs. He's better than the one who shall not be named at least. - spiritofhiphop

Lol he's the good version of Chris Clown. - AlphaQ

Usher is awesome! - DaWyteNight

21 Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson Marilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Formed in 1989 by frontman Marilyn Manson and Daisy Berkowitz, the group was originally named Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids with their theatrical performances gathering a local cult following in the early 1990s. ...read more.

Trent Reznor is way better than Marilyn Manson.

I've given him a chance. Turns out he's creepy and incredibly boring apart from some of the obnoxious voices. - AlphaQ

Definitely overrated by goth kids. He may be a smart guy and all, but that doesn't change the fact that he's a godawful singer. His former label mate Trent Reznor is way better at singing.

He's actually really good. - RalphBob

22 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".

I've given Rebecca Black a chance, I can safely say she's gotten better since Friday. Would I say she's great? NO. Is she good? Pretty much. - WonkeyDude98

I HAVE given her a chance. She turned out pretty decent. - AlphaQ

24 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've given the little puke a chance and I'm barely convinced he's worth a listen. In 2009-2010, despite there being worse songs than ones he made, I can safely say he was THE WORST. He couldn't write more than 2 words in a song to save his life, had an atrocious voice, and tried harder than how much he could afford, given his charisma.

As time went on, Justin Bieber became boring. It's a start. He went from cutesy to Romeo, which made him go from easily hateable to easily ignorable.

Then 2015 happened. He started to become confused and resentful in his music, which I can buy. I gave him a chance, and the first three singles (Where R Ü Now, What Do You Mean, Sorry) were promising. He squandered it all with his final single I'll Show You, which despite having his best vocal performance yet, was a slow, boring drone about how Bieber is "hurting" yet is expected to be perfect. When you look at his stance in real life, I'll Show You is an ugly, hypocritical dreck which is ...more - WonkeyDude98

I've given the trashcan a chance. He's worth listening to these days. In the 2012 he became increasingly ignorance and improved in 2015. - AlphaQ

I'm not into them but I don't hate them. I only hate when people think Breaking Benjamin are metal and put them on metal lists. They aren't metal, trust me. - Metal_Treasure

What have they done to make anyone hate them? - bobbythebrony

I like this one. - SamuiNeko

I've given this hoe a number of chances, she ended up awful with quite a number of great songs. She's brilliant at her best and obnoxious at her worst. - AlphaQ

Oh lord she sucks. I don't hate her as much as my brother, but she's terrible. - spiritofhiphop

Really? I gave Slayer a try cause I wanted to find something heavier than Slipknot (yeah I was one of those kinds of people) and I loved Slayer. Still listen to those 2 bands today - SirSkeletorThe3rd

I'm sorry, but I just don't see what everyone else sees in them. I can't really put why into words, but I've never been a fan. - Songsta41

I tried to give 21 savage a chance, but his music is so boring and he sounds so uninterested on every song. Plus, he's just rapping about the same topics that all trap rappers rap about over generic beats. - DaWyteNight

37 Lil Yachty Lil Yachty

His only good song was his commercial with Carly Rae when he could actually rap, now he makes garbage like Harley and Peekaboo

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.

At first, I considered Em to be one of the worst rappers alive because of Kim and Kill You. Before this, I had only listened to Stan (but barely got into it), Rap God, The Monster, and Love the Way You Lie.

By all means all those songs were good. But I had a burning hatred for Eminem purely off of Kim and Kill You. Then I started hearing about more of his earlier stuff, like The Real Slim Shady, Guilty Conscience, Beautiful, Lose Yourself, White America, Till I Collapse, and Hailie's Song, as well as getting into Recovery and Encore (both albums I like).

This, combined with my obvious liking of the Marshall Mathers LP 2, gives me the final verdict of a 5 out of 5 for Eminem. Boy am I glad I gave him a chance. - WonkeyDude98

Eminem started of bland for me and boy he grew A LOT on me. I gave The Marshall Mathers LP a 6/10 at first now it's better. I'd rate him a strong 9/10 on this guy. - AlphaQ

I did hate her at one point, but she's gotten much better. Also, she doesn't dress too showy these days (her Golden Globes of 2016 was pretty simple so it wasn't that bad.

I'M DONE. I've given them as much chances as Justin Bieber and it turned out to be the opposite. Although SremmLife 2 was a decent improvement, it was only because of their vocals which ended up becoming bad again, I had to give it a negative-star rating for this and most songs by them are negative-rated. - AlphaQ
