Top 10 Bands Everyone Listens to but Eventually Grows Out Of

The Top Ten
1 Simple Plan Simple Plan is a French-Canadian pop rock/pop-punk band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released six albums.

I'm 15 and still listen to Simple Plan. I'm not saying that I won't grow out of it eventually though. However My friend's dad also listens to Simple Plan and has done since he was a kid.

For a lot of people, Simple Plan is the quintessential "grow out from" band, there's a lot of people who like them at one point but after another they don't stick with them anymore
They are the poppiest of pop punk, while bands like MCR, Green Day, Sum 41, Blink-182 and even FOB had a lot of edge and personality in it, Simple Plan is just like the most family friendly "punk" band out there

I grew out of them pretty quickly. I don't think they suck, but they aren't for me anymore

2 Staind Staind was a post-grunge/alternative metal band formed in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1995.

Staind is Aaron Lewis (vocalist and guitarist), Jon Wysocki (drummer, left in 2011), Johnny April (bassist), and Mike Mushok (guitarist). After Jon's departure Sal Giancarelli filled in as drummer until the band's hiatus in 2012.

Staind's early sound was predominantly nu metal, then they verged into softer territory with passing albums, becoming more post-grunge in sound.

Many of Staind's song deal with depression, substance abuse, death, and similar subjects. The band has enjoyed modest success off of such songs. more.

Similar case to Simple Plan
However Staind has some sense of edginess through their music (after all they are a nu metal band) however, from all the nu metal bands out there, Staind is by far the dullest and most generic from them all

3 Five Finger Death Punch Five Finger Death Punch, often shortened to Five Finger or Death Punch, also abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is an American metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band's name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

They might not be the worst post grunge band out there, but they are definitely the very first band I think when I heard the expression "all their songs sound the same"

5 Hoobastank Hoobastank is an American rock band, formed in 1994 in Agoura Hills, California with lead singer Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse, and original bassist Markku Lappalainen.

Get very big thanks to one hit "The Reason" and people kinda accepted them for that, however they just feel like a lite version of Incubus with Papa Roach + Sum 41 influence that doesn't really fit at all with the music, and doesn't make it really good

6 Good Charlotte Good Charlotte is an American pop-punk band from Waldorf, Maryland that formed in 1996. Since 1998, the band's constant members have been lead vocalist Joel Madden, lead guitarist and vocalist Benji Madden, bassist Paul Thomas, rhythm guitarist and keyboardist Billy Martin and drummer Dean Butterworth, who has been a member of the band since 2005. After embarking on a 4-year-long hiatus in 2011, the... read more

Same case as Simple Plan

7 Nickelback Nickelback is a Canadian post-grunge 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.

Despite having a lot of defenders or people who just say "you know they have like... 1 or 2 good songs" Nickelback is not a band that people tend to hype with them

8 Papa Roach Papa Roach is an American rock band from Vacaville, California. Formed in 1993, their first major-label release was the triple-platinum album Infest.

Similar case to Hoobastank, got really popular but thanks to the lack of variety and new ideas, people just forgot about their existence

9 Limp Bizkit Limp Bizkit is an American nu metal/rap metal/rock band from Jacksonville, Florida, formed in 1994. Their lineup consists of Fred Durst, Sam Rivers, John Otto, and Wes Borland. They're mostly known for their singles like Break Stuff, My Way, My Generation, Nookie, Eat You Alive, Rollin', and Take a Look Around. They have made 5 albums to date.

They haven't interested me since the first time I listened to them. Rollin' is a decent, but other than that I don't like them very much. There songs are either cringy, really bad or just mediocre at best.

Do I really need to explain this one?

10 Disturbed Disturbed is an American alternative metal/nu-metal/heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois. The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren. They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .

Despite being considered by many as one of the "good nu-metal bands", their latest albums doesn't have the amount of acclaim and fame their earlier albums had, making people either stop following them, or forgot they were good to begin with

The Contenders
11 Creed Creed was an American post-grunge band, formed in 1993 in Tallahassee, Florida. The band's best-known line-up consisted of lead vocalist Scott Stapp, guitarist and vocalist Mark Tremonti, bassist Brian Marshall, and drummer Scott Phillips.

A lot of people known Creed back in the day, but right after all the memes, people realizing Scott Stapp was an awful singer and the existence of the superior Alter Bridge (conformed by 3 members of the band) People finally give up with Creed

This is mainly by one big controversy that I don't know if I can tell here
But... ignoring all that, they just feel like what Hoobastank and Papa Roach were doing at the time, nothing interesting

17 Fall Out Boy Fall Out Boy is an American pop punk band formed in Wilmette, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, in 2001. The band consists of vocalist and guitarist Patrick Stump, bassist Pete Wentz, guitarist Joe Trohman, and drummer Andy Hurley.
18 30 Seconds to Mars Thirty Seconds to Mars (commonly stylized as 30 Seconds to Mars) is an American alternative rock band from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1998. The band currently consists of brothers Jared and Shannon Leto.

Same case as FOB, started out okay making alt rock but turned more and more into pop, at a point they weren't interesting enough for anyone
I also remember the time they were at the top 10 in the list "Best Bands of all time"

19 Skillet Skillet is an American Christian rock band formed in Memphis, Tennessee in 1996 and based in the United States.

Similar case to Breaking Benjamin, another post grunge band that had nothing special besides their christianity, but after certain point you just feel tired of the same style they make over again

Similar case to Disturbed and TDG, started out okay but their music got less interesting with the time at a point people just lose interest with them, their last album Gravity is a prove of that
