Top 10 Most Stupidly Hated BandsSome people hate bands who are actually good because it's the cool thing to do. These are the bands who have been subjected to that and shouldn't have been.
I really like Nickelback and their music, and I too sometimes don't understand why they get so much hate. I've heard people say that their songs all sound the same. Like does Far Away and Rockstar sound the same? Or Photograph and Gotta Be Somebody? I don't think so. I will admit, their are some parts of some songs that sound the same, but doesn't a lot of music sound the same? I've also heard people say they sound so bad that they would kill themselves or do something stupid and disturbing rather than listen to one Nickelback song. Like that is so untrue, people just say that to seem cool and jump onto the Nickelback hate train, and it's pretty stupid. It's like sheep, if one person hates Nickelback, then almost everyone else will. They obviously aren't the best band of all time, but they definitely aren't the worst band of all time either, I've heard so many other bands that are worse than Nickelback. I do think Chad Kroeger is a good singer and very successful songwriter, just look at all of the different songs that reached the billboard hot 100 charts. I know they have so many memes out there, and it really isn't fair to them, cause they are doing something they love. If some people hate Nickelback, like no one will care, but the fact that almost everyone in the world hates Nickelback and bashes on Nickelback is unbelievable and stupid.
I'm sorry but the lets rag on Fred Durst because he's white and accidentally started a riot bandwagon is one ridden by people who've never even heard a limp bizkit song. Limp Bizkit has that juvenile delinquent vibe and heavy rifts that makes me go insane every time I hear them. Limp Bizkit might not be as good as Led Zeppelin but they're pretty awesome.
Best song: BREAK STUFF
The instrumentals for the most part are very good, and I actually like the vocals.
I actually like a few of their songs and I think instrumentals are quite good.
This band is among the most hated. I think they were actually good. Certainly not the best, but good
Metallica aren't hated for their music, although the last few albums were pretty sketchy until they released "Death Magnetic. They are hated because of what they did to the music industry in regards of file sharing on the internet. Lars Ulrich (aka the biggest effin crybaby in metal) spearheaded the campaign against Napster and other peer to peer file sharing sites, causing them to shut down permanently. Biggest metal band of all time and they had to whine about money. If it wasn't for file sharing on the internet, this band wouldn't still be relevant today and would have phased out of the scene years ago. On top of that, Lars is absolutely the worst drummer in metal history. He was "okay" up until the Load album. Every album since his drumming has been pure crap. It's like he doesn't think he has to try anymore.
I do believe Metallica can be really overrated in some circumstances (IE Master of Puppets being voted best on almost every top ten to many top tens, people tlking about Enter Sandman like it's better than anything, people claiming Fade to Black is the most emotional song ever written. ) But at the same time that doesn't make the band bad. And albums such Load and Lulu aren't really signs of weakness in my opinion but rather the band falling into genres people don't like. And at least Metallica shows true expression and emotion in there music unlike some bands.
The band currently consists of brothers Dean and Robert DeLeo (guitarist and bassist, respectively), and Eric Kretz (drummer). Their main vocalist from their formation up to 2013 was Scott Weiland. He was fired in 2013 and for a short time was replaced by Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington, who left to focus... read more

I have to go with Avenged Sevenfold as I'm not familiar with Nickleback, except for a few songs. I feel that the hatred towards A7x has little to do with their music being original and more so because of their extreme mainstream popularity, appearance or stage names, and whatnot. Maybe, I'm biased, as they helped me get into metal. I'm not a 'die-hard' fan or anything, but I will appreciate their humility and attitude toward their fans. I also need not mention they're very ambitious musicians, evident through constant experimentation over the years, knowing that, being a mainstream band, they are risking losing a massive chunk of the fanbase.
I can see why people hate the fans, I'm a fan and trust me I know those people. But the band it's self is just great, a talented bunch and if you would just listen to the music instead of the fans, maybe you would see why me and so many others love them.
Linkin Park is a nu metal band that managed to go mainstream. That's it. They're also one of those bands that blends different genres together. They are the very definition of alternative. They have CONSTANTLY thrived by changing up their style from nu metal and rap rock to electronic and hard rock. And I think it's stupid that the band has been called a sellout. Selling out is doing something for the sake of making more money or being more popular. LP has never had those aspirations. They've always changed up their style and never gave a damn what people said about it. I love that about them.
Many people hate linkin park, and I cannot understand why. They hate them because they were nu metal, but at the same time they hate them because they don't do only nu metal, they hate them for literally everything they did. This needs to stop. You cannot say a band is talentless because you don't like them. The great variety of genres they did is a proof of their incredible talent.
They probably hate them because they think they're "satanic" which is a really stupid idea to hate popular rock/metal bands.
I swear this whole rumor of rock and metal needs to die. How would you people like it if I went around saying that country and rap are satanic? Would you fans of those genres appreciate that?
Korn is pretty disturbing but the one song "Daddy" is about a child who got sexually abused by some sort of family friend then the child told his mother about that but refused to believe. Yeah, that's scary enough. Do you know who the child is? The lead singer was Jonathan Davis is the child. You may think Nightmares at Elm Street is real, then it is based on a true-event about Jonathan got abused when he was 12 years old and I'm pretty sure that the story was just realistic than I expected. But "Daddy" is a true-event masterpiece that the band never deserved to be in the worst list.
(Note: I'm not a Korn fan, but if you want to know about the song "Daddy", search Top Ten Most Disturbing Songs of All Time and I knew this song was number one.)
People hate Demon Hunter because it is trendy nowadays to hate Christians.
The name of the band comes from famous sex symbol Marilyn Monroe and famous criminal Charles Manson. Manson... read more
People hate him ( and his band ) because of their dark appearance and because they think they are satanic. Someone says the singer cannot sing. I'm a recent fan of theirs, and I can say that mm is not the best singer, but he is good.
Most stupid white middle class teenagers are scared of Marylin Manson. That's why they gang up on him. But Manson doesn't care and neither does his fans. He has amazing guitar rifts and if you don't get it you never will.
Best song: THE DOPE SHOW
I know a lot of people hate Marilyn Manson. But I think he's pretty talented.
I agree that their direction towards pop and collaborating with overrated artists isn't the direction I'd like to see them go.
However, I don't think this is cause to hate them. Disappointment of varying degrees, but hate? From songs like Viva La Vida to Paradise, their best works have been so imaginative and creative that I can't help but consider them to be one of my favorite bands of all time.
At this point, people are just hating on things because it's popular. I never saw any of the bad things in this band until I realised that the internet apparently hated them. They are not the best band in existence, but just because they have mostly quite a conventional pop sound to them now, I still find particular conditions where some pop might be nice - and ignoring the originality, their songs are put together very well. There's nothing about them that makes them hard to listen to o a reason to be hated so much, except for their populaity.
How can anyone hate them? They are so amazingly talented with great vocals and beats
The band's members are Anthony Kiedis (Vocals), Michael "Flea" Balzary (Bass), Chad Smith (Drums) and numerous guitarists, most well-known being John Frusciante.
The band is among the most well-known funk bands in music history with albums like "Blood Sugar Sex Magik" and "Californification"... read more
This band means more to me than my life. I see why people hate em, but I never could. They are my life.
I very much agree. It's amazing how despite the fact that Rush has more gold and platinum records than any other band besides The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, I still get blank looks whenever I mention them.
Rush isn'r really hated that much, but they are extremely underrated!
The band was comprised of Kurt Cobain (Vocals, Guitar), Dave Grohl (Drums) and Krist Novoselic (Bass).

Nirvana is underrated as well as overrated. After Kurt's death the isle split even farther, but I am on the side that appreciates the passion in their music as well as what they did for a generation!
What the hell does Creed or Candlebox have to do with Nirvana? They are crap, Nirvana isn't
Who started the let's blame nirvana for Creed and Candlebox trend? Because someone should take a baseball bat to their car. Nirvana has some of the best song writing and emmotion of any band. Period. RIP Kurt you did one hell of a job.
Best song: SMELLS LIKE TEEN SPIRIT
Simultaneously the most underrated and overrated band of all. Honestly, it's better now that the radio doesn't constantly play it, but nonetheless, they have some great songs, most of them just not so well known. Honestly, I can't say I know how they got their reputation, but they don't deserve it.
Overrated to the point of being annoying. You just hear it on the radio all the time.
They're way better than people give them credit for.
Let's be honest, Slipknot is only hated because of the reputations and stereotypes of the people who listen to metal like this. Some other bands include Korn, Limp Bizkit, Deftones, etc. I personally love Slipknot, and I would say some of the hate is a little harsh. Although 'Iowa' was so brutal that it was banned in certain parts of the world, the band doesn't necessarily deserve the hate they receive. Some criticism I could understand, because of Taylor's heavy vocals mixed with heavy metal instrumentals, but that's basically what metal is. Metal is basically where you convert brutal topics into lyrics, and use heavy guitars and drums to back up the atmosphere of the song. People who define this to be false is false themselves. People who find this music terrible are most likely referring to the likings of gang members, or generally just weak minded souls. Therefore, Slipknot doesn't deserve much of the hate.
Not anything great but good at what they do.
This is pop metal
Honestly I think that disturbed is one the best bands ever. I have nothing else to say, except they are awesome.
I'm a huge fan and I don't think there is anything to hate about them.
So what if David is a dick, he's one hell of a singer. That's for sure
They are a great band and hated for selling out... Lets be honest they changed there style over time, Green Day never sold out they have always had catchy songs with repetitive verses, even in their early days. They are one of a kind, punk or not, and are keeping rock alive!
Green Day isn't hated because they suck. It's an entirely different reason really it's because they are considered pop punk which isn't even a thing. Because you can't have mainstream high radio play punk because that's exactly what punk isn't.
They are hated for "selling out" and going mainstream... We saw this with many great bands, and unlike a lot Green Day has really been driven by passion and not money!
Insane Clown Posse is known for their violent and outrageous lyrics that often interpolate horror elements and religious symbolism, all of this being set in the fictitious Dark Carnival universe. The musical style ranges from oldschool... read more
Why people hate ICP? I'm a Juggalette, and people are saying: "They just suck. Period. Grown men should not be running around wearing face paint and rap about killing people and doing drugs. Grow up."
That's simply stereotyping. You're the one who needs to grow up and stop judging people by their music taste. It's your life? No. Have I ever done something bad to you? No. Then why do you hate me? Mmfwcl
I love them. They are original and you don't get that often. They are nice and funny guys. They shouldn't get the hate they do. If you dis them you might as well dis all of rap/hip hop.
I don't like Juggalos, but a lot of ICP songs, like "Suicide Hotline" and "Halls of Illusions" are very good.
Are they hated just because they/their fans are "emo"? I'm confused why this band is in this list otherwise. The Black Parade (let's be honest that's about their only notable album) is extremely well-written.
Honestly they shouldn't be hated, they are really good. Maybe the fans are out of hand but that doesn't matter. You don't listen to an album for their fans or looks or any of that bull. You listen cause they sound good and in my opinion they are pretty good!
Yeah, they aren't that great a band. I don't even listen to them. However, they are nowhere close to terrible. Reserve the hate for similar bands that actually do suck, like Fall Out Boy and Panic! At The Disco.
Guns N' Roses are a great band, but I can't stand Axl Rose sometimes. I like and hate the guy at the same time, but some of us remember when Axl kicked a guy out for wearing a Slash shirt. I understand, but if I was him, I would just make him remove his shirt. Not just remove him from the bloody show.
No need for this band to be hated. Yes, Axl may be a dick, but I can't blame him considering that he grew up in a violent environment.
Guns N' Roses is actually one of my favorite bands. Appetite for Destruction is the best debut album ever, and Use Your Illusion 2 was the best 90's album
I agree so much, especially on this site. They made some of the best songs of the 90's (e.g Champagne Supernova, All Around The World, Morning Glory, Some Might Say etc.).
