Top 10 Most Annoying Solo Artists and Groups

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

Yes, JB... I never really liked his songs. I mean, I didn't hate them, but I never liked them either. However, I decided to listen to them again, just to relive the past, and they were terrible. Starting with "Baby," one of the most annoying songs by far! Baby Bieber's voice also didn't support the terrible song that was created.

"Sorry" wasn't much better, with bad lyrics and no support from his vocals. And don't get me started on one of his newest songs, "Yummy." He sings about his wife, which in itself isn't that bad, but when you hear the lyrics... Yikes. I would've divorced him, to be honest. I mean, "Yeah, you got that yummy, yummy, yummy." It's repetitive and disgraceful.

2 Britney Spears Britney Jean Spears, born on December 2, 1981, is an American former singer and actress. She was born in McComb, Mississippi, and raised in Kentwood, Louisiana. As a child, she performed acting roles in stage productions and television shows, such as "The Mickey Mouse Club," before signing with Jive... read more

The most annoying thing about her is that all the girls keep saying, "I grew up with Britney," "She is the reason I want to be a performer," and many other things. Wake up, she is like the worst role model for a young girl.

Man, I hate her. Why are Avenged Sevenfold and Metallica here? Are you guys serious?

She's one step away from a tombstone.

3 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

She cannot sing or dance at all. She sounds like a 7-year-old who is clueless.

She should be higher on this list. One of the biggest non-talents around.

I just really disapprove of her lyrics and general behavior.

4 Miley Cyrus Miley Ray Cyrus (born Destiny Hope Cyrus), known professionally 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 spans 4 octaves... read more

Don't get me started... Her music was never anything special. Her voice sounded too childish, then changed to something completely different. I think people liked her music because of her role as Hannah in Hannah Montana.

However, to depart and erase her image as that family-friendly Disney character, she swung from a wrecking ball naked. Disgusting. I think that was a big turning point in her music. "Wrecking Ball" wasn't a top-tier song and didn't deserve the recognition it was getting. Her song, "Party in the USA," also wasn't "it." I mean, don't get me wrong, it was okay. But it almost felt forced, and as I saw it, it must have been.

5 Paris Hilton Paris Whitney Hilton is an American businesswoman, socialite, television personality, model, actress, singer, DJ, and author.

All she does is show off that she has money and walk around in tacky clothing. Plus, not to mention, she is immensely ugly with that jacked-up nose of hers.

Awful, just awful. No, not Paris Hilton. I don't care about her. It's awful that Britney Spears is at the top. She's amazing.

What even? Avenged came before this dumb girl? Well, that shows what type of people we are...

6 Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989, in Reading, Pennsylvania. Swift is best known for writing personal songs and has won 13 Grammy Awards... read more

I must admit, I was a fan of her country songs. Even though I wasn't a big country music enthusiast, I found myself singing along to her tracks. However, my interest waned after her release of "Look What You Made Me Do." The shift to a pop style felt uncomfortable, and her songs lost their unique appeal, becoming somewhat annoying.

It wasn't her voice or the beat, but rather the lyrics and overall vibe of her new music that turned me off.

None of the others on this list are as annoying in themselves as someone who keeps making the same songs over and over again!

There's more to your life than a boy who doesn't notice you, or a boy who screws you over. Sing about what you had for breakfast! Something! Anything else! Just not another boy song!

7 Jonas Brothers The Jonas Brothers are an American pop rock band. Formed in 2005, they gained popularity from their appearances on the Disney Channel television network.

Are you kidding?! The Beatles are ahead of these losers? Come on, guys! These guys are overplayed hacks who have no soul. They seem like very nice gentlemen, but they are not musicians and they are given too much credit.

Is what they do considered music? What a bunch of overrated no-talent losers. This is sad. The Beatles are above these guys? What a joke.

There isn't a band more annoying than The Jonas Brothers. They write horrible music. The little girls that scream and cheer for them are just as annoying.

8 Kanye West Ye (born Kanye Omari West; June 8, 1977) is an American rapper, songwriter, record producer and fashion designer. He is regarded as one of the most influential, as well as controversial, artists of the 21st century... read more

How is that stuck-up, snot-nosed, no-talent not number one? He is just the epitome of snootiness and self-praise.

This guy calls himself the next "king of hip-hop." He wouldn't even last five minutes in a rap battle.

Jackass, poor excuse for a husband and father, and human being in general. No wonder Kim K is divorcing his arrogant self.

9 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.

Just like Limp Bizkit, Nickelback has become the butt of the joke known as 21st-century music. But for good reason. The reason they annoy me isn't that they're the worst artist. It's because they're so sickeningly average. Bieber and the Disney team are worse but not as popular.

Same with Taylor Swift, I get them confused with Matchbox Twenty. It's all the same with a country theme.

I know so many people who like them, and they really aren't that great.

10 Rebecca Black Rebecca Black is a YouTube personality and singer who's infamous for her 2011 single "Friday," which was the most disliked video on YouTube until "Baby" by Justin Bieber became the most disliked video in 2012. She has also released other songs, including "My Moment" and "Saturday".

To be fair, I haven't invested much time in researching her recent music. However, don't assume I haven't heard some of it. I've heard "Friday" (of course), but also others like "The Great Divide," "Foolish," "Do You?" and "Heart Full of Scars."

And I think the problem is the same in all these songs: her voice. It doesn't sound appealing, almost too childish, and honestly, annoying. Her tone and some of the lyrics seem to work against each other.

Honestly, everyone's just heard Friday and voted against her. Listen to her recent music. It is alarmingly good, and a much bigger improvement.

It's disgusting the amount of bullying that's been done because of a song she sang at 14, which she didn't write, and only made for her and her friends.

The Contenders
11 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

How is he so low? How are Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, or Taylor Swift worse than Chris Brown? Are you all just going to forget about what happened with him and Rihanna?

He is the definition of the word annoying.

He should be at the top of the list because he is annoying and talentless.

12 Lil Wayne Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was discovered by Brian "Baby" "Birdman" Williams at a very young age, and was signed to Cash Money Records, where he would be one quarter of the rap group Hot Boys. In the years to follow, he would go on to find his own... read more

In my opinion, he's the most overrated. He seems to think he represents real rap, but I disagree. First, his voice sounds unnaturally strained. Second, he relies excessively on autotune.

Third, his rap style makes it seem like an invasion of monsters. Simply put, he's not good. His influence on young fans is concerning, as they might think it's cool to emulate his 'gangster' style. His songs, like Lollipop, sound innocent but have a different meaning. Plus, his style feels outdated.

Wayne doesn't spell correctly, and it sounds like he comes up with random, pointless lyrics.

13 Rihanna Robyn Rihanna Fenty is a Barbadian-American pop singer. 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

She's not a singer, she's an adult film star! Can't sing, can't dance, and can't write songs.

Ugly looking and she has a voice to match!

14 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

I don't understand why One Direction is famous - their songs all sound alike, and their music (to quote The Smiths) says nothing to me about my life. Who can relate to a bunch of air-headed corporate puppets jumping around on a Californian beach with supermodels? Certainly not I.

I wish their fans would realize they're being conned into giving away all their parents' money to rich music corporations.

They are only liked for looks, just like the Jonas Brothers when they were popular, but at least they could play instruments and wrote some of their songs. And their fans are kind of obsessed with them like they are gods, no offense.

15 The Black-Eyed Peas The Black Eyed Peas is an American hip hop group, consisting of rappers will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and singer Fergie.

Manufactured, trashy, superficial, tacky, immature, and forced. Whoever thought that stuttering, spelling, and overused onomatopoeia might be lyrically interesting and attractive... well, they thought wrong. Penetrating eardrums and nerves is a bad attempt at desperately trying to be catchy.

Please, quit it.

Here's what's really annoying: they have had one good song. If you look at some of the work Fergie has done outside the group, she's not terrible. She actually does really well with Slash, one of the gods of rock, and yet they make songs like Dirty Bit, one of the worst catchy songs of all time.

16 Avenged Sevenfold Avenged Sevenfold is an American heavy metal band, that was formed 1999 in California. Their longest lineup of members was M. Shadows (Vocals), Synyster Gates (Lead Guitar), Zacky Vengeance (Rhythm Guitar), Johnny Christ (Bass Guitar), and The Rev (Drums)... read more

Ugh, I can't find any redeeming quality about this thing people call a "band." Each member is, at best, mediocre at what they do. Their songs and playing style are forgettable.

All in all, an extremely mediocre band that plays to the masses, deluding thousands into thinking that it's good music.

I hate almost all of the bands on this list, but I had to say this because I have heard so many people say good things about them on other lists. Finally, some inkling of intellect.

Almost everybody I know that says they like metal turns out to like A7X. It's not any good, rubbish vocals, bad songwriting, and annoying to listen to.

17 50 Cent Curtis James Jackson III, better known by his stage name 50 Cent, is an American rapper, actor, entrepreneur, investor, record, film, and television producer.
18 Courtney Love Courtney Michelle Love is an American singer, songwriter, actress, and visual artist. A notable figure in the punk and grunge scenes of the 1990s, Love's career has spanned four decades.
19 Beyonce 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

I'm tired of hearing about her. People would rather buy tickets to see her perform instead of feeding their kids or paying some bills, shaking my head. They act as if she is beyond reproach, as if she isn't human like the rest of us, as if she doesn't eat, sleep, or put one leg in front of the other like the rest of us.

But people treat her like a god. Her fanbase drives me up the wall and is one of the many reasons why I stopped listening to her.

She's not bad, but she's so terribly overrated. I can't name more than two of her songs.

20 Ariana Grande Ariana Grande-Butera (born June 26, 1993) is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. Her four-octave vocal range has received critical acclaim, and her personal life has been the subject of widespread media attention. She has received numerous accolades throughout her career, including two Grammy... read more

I can't even listen to her music. It's just so basic and cringey. Plus, she's not even that attractive. I mean, I know everyone really likes her, but come on, guys. No.

Whiny, spoiled, ungrateful brat.

21 Soulja Boy DeAndre Cortez Way (born July 28, 1990), known professionally as Soulja Boy Tell 'Em or simply Soulja Boy, is an American rapper and record producer. In September 2007, his debut single "Crank That (Soulja Boy)" peaked at number 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The single was initially self-published... read more

He just dances around, repeats himself, and whines that because of this he has "haters." He has haters because he makes Yung Joc look like Nas. I can't stand him.

By far the worst rapper of all time. With rappers like Nas, AZ, Eminem, Ice Cube, GZA, Common, Rakim, Ghostface, and Royce the 5'9 out there, it's a mystery to me that anyone in the world could possibly listen to this loser's crappy music. Just simply terrible.

22 6IX9INE Daniel Hernandez, known by his stage name 6ix9ine, also known as Tekashi69 or simply Tekashi, is an American rapper. He is mostly known for his legal issues, particularly his sexual crimes... read more
23 Katy Perry Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson, professionally known by her stage name Katy Perry, was born on October 25, 1984 in Santa Barbara, California. She is a singer, songwriter, actress and an ambassador on one of the most popular companies of now, UNICEF... read more
24 Madonna Madonna Louise Ciccone, known professionally as Madonna, 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... read more

Madonna is the worst. God knows how she sold 300 million albums. She's the queen of marketing and shamelessness, not pop. Way too overrated, way too annoying. I can't stand her.

She should never have been a singer because she spoiled the art of popular music and turned it into cheap money-making schemes. Being an inspiration for artists like Britney and Rihanna. She's also a very bad actress. God save us from her music and movies.

I love Madonna! Whoever wrote this list is stupid. I also like the Beatles and the Black Eyed Peas. I agree that My Chemical Romance and P Diddy should be on here, but Madonna? What has the world come to?
