Top 10 Albums that Were Hated by The Artists that Made Them

These albums were hated by the artist who made them either because they were bad or for other reasons.

if you are going add a album to this list please give a reason as too why the band hated the album.
The Top Ten
1 Never Say Die - Black Sabbath

Ozzy Osbourne, who was subsequently fired, called this "the worst piece of work that I've ever had anything to do with. I'm ashamed of that album. I think it's disgusting."

Geezer Butler later admitted the title was completely tongue in cheek, as Black Sabbath sank into chemical, creative and interpersonal difficulties. None of that made for a great album.

2 It's Hard - The Who

Roger Daltrey:"'It's Hard' should never have been released, I had huge rows with Pete [Townshend]. I said, 'Pete, this is just a complete piece of s*** and it should never come out!'"

3 Never Let Me Down - David Bowie

I think he hated both this and Tonight about the same for the exact reason- he was sacrificing his art for the sake of being a pop star.

4 Let It Be - The Beatles

John Lennon: "Given the s***iest load of badly-recorded s*** with a lousy feeling to it ever, he made something of it."

This was his complaint after Paul McCartney openly groused about the "Wall of Sound" approach favored by producer Phil Spector.

5 Pinkerton - Weezer

RIvers likes it now. He despised it for 10 years, though.

Rivers doesn't hate this album anymore I believe.

6 Nevermind - Nirvana
7 Be Here Now - Oasis

Noel Gallagher hates the album, admitting it was a mess. Liam Gallagher, however, liked it and didn't see what the problem was.

8 Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

Springsteen spent years working on this project and months on the title track alone trying to fashion the "greatest rock 'n' roll record ever made." He didn't feel it was there yet, initially calling 'Born to Run' the "worst piece of garbage" he'd ever heard. Producer Jon Landau thought otherwise, and convinced Springsteen to finally release the album.

I have no idea what he thought was the problem with this album.

9 Mondo Bizarro - Ramones

Johnny Ramone had stated that he "didn't like it at all" in the documentary 'End of the Century'. All though Mondo Bizarro is my personal fourth favorite by The Ramones.

10 Cold Lake - Celtic Frost

You may find that this album is the only album Celtic Frost didn't remaster, no it's not because of record label issues its because the band hated this album and Tom has also said it was the "absolute worst I could do in my lifetime." He has also called it "an utter piece of s***" and "possibly the worst album ever created in heavy music."

The Contenders
11 Chelsea Girl - Nico
12 Encore - Eminem

"Looking back on it now, there was some pretty mediocre things that I was putting out," Is what Eminem said about the album after years of it coming out he also stated that:
"When I was making 'Encore', my addiction took on a life of its own."

and his mentor Dr. Dre even laughed at him while he was making songs for the album.

13 Around the Sun - R.E.M.
14 The Final Cut - Pink Floyd

David Gilmour said 'The Final Cut' was poorer for it. Waters resorted to completing the project with "cheap filler of the kind we hadn't put on a Pink Floyd album in years," Gilmour said. "It could have been a great album, but it's unbalanced."

15 Hot Space - Queen

Thanks to whoever added this it seems that Brian May and Roger Taylor hated the sound of this album.

16 Their Satanic Majesties Request - The Rolling Stones

This was the first album I thought of when I saw this list. Keith Richards called it "a load of crap" and only likes three songs on the album- She's a Rainbow, 2000 Lightyears From Home, and Citadel.

17 Nine Track Mind - Charlie Puth

He said that none of the music really represented him at all.

18 One by One - Foo Fighters

When Dave Grohl was discussing about this album he said "Four of the songs were good, and the other seven I never played again in my life."

19 Music from The Elder - Kiss
20 Cut the Crap - The Clash
21 Transit of Venus - Three Days Grace

When Adam Gontier quit the band, he went on to make several Facebook posts about how the band had hired country songwriters to be co-writers on the album and how only one or two songs from the record actually came from his heart. He had even posted negative reviews about the album and agreed with them.

22 Diabolus in Musica - Slayer

Kerry King has said that this is his least favorite album he worked on.

23 Between the Buttons - The Rolling Stones

Mick Jagger called the album "a load of rubbish" because he was disappointed in the sound quality and he thought the songwriting was somewhat weak. He said that the only song on the album he likes is Back Street Girl.

24 Antipop - Primus

Claypool said : "We were at the end of our creative rope, the well was dry, so we just started sucking mud."
They went on hiatus for three years after the release of this album.
Claypool said in 2015 that this was "His least favorite Primus record."

25 Pop - U2

U2 guitarist the Edge admitted. "It was a crazy period trying to mix everything and finish recording and having production meetings about the upcoming tour. If you can't mix something, it generally means there's something wrong with it."
