Top 10 Music Artists that Aren't as Talented as Some People SayThese musicians aren't really as talented as some people might think.
I mean...he came up with some decent riffs, but otherwise he wasn't talented whatsoever. Nirvana's music is notorious for being easy to play on guitar and his lyrics were just a bunch of nonsense. I don't wanna sound disrespectful or anything, but he was quite untalented compared to other iconic rock songwriters and guitarists and half the reason people only like him is because he was attractive
He may have been influential (in a bad way), but that doesn't mean that he had tons of talent. He was actually quite untalented as both a guitarist and a singer. His songwriting was juvenile too.
Sure, he wasn't the most talented guitarist, but DAMN he knew what he was doing in the process of charming fans with his voice and simple playing.
His guitar skills are great and legendary, but he's not the most talented out of all of them.
When I say I like Kanye West, I'm talking about his artistry because I personally find Kanye to be an excellent artist, he's shown great rapping skills but most of them are just okay and are very low compared to some of the top-tier rappers.
Sorry to break it to ya, but Kanye barely has any talent.
In what way is he talented?
Has some good music
I honesty feel like this list applies to basically every music act ever. Unless they are really unpopular and hardly anyone likes them there will always be fans that insist that they are more talented than they really are.
Who said she was talented? Her voice isn't even Top 20 worthy and it even sounds irritating at times. Also, her writing skills are pretty weak.
Usually in defense of not that good singers I very often I read this: "his/her voice suits his/her songs". But this proves nothing. Of course the songs suit somebody's voice - they were written for his/her voice! Especially singers/songwriters who write songs for themselves. Do you think somebody would write a song for Ozzy that Ozzy couldn't sing? No, because it doesn't make sense.
Ozzy vocal skills aren't very special so all his songs are easy to sing. The level of difficulty of Paranoid is that of a kiddie song. War Pigs - Ozzy sings the entire song of 8 minutes using only one octave of his range!
The most unique voice, and the best voice for Black Sabbath and his own. The best? No. Can it be imitated? Definitely not.
I'd say he's pretty talented actually. Not the best singer but he is a good vocalist and his voice fits Black Sabbath.
I honestly have no problem with Osbourne's voice. It fits perfect for Black Sabbath and Solo.

People treat her like a goddess when the only thing she's a "goddess" at is using a crap ton of autotune and overexposing her body.
Not my style, but she's talented. Both as a singer and a dancer.
I love The Rev, no denying. But even I know there are a lot of better drummers out there. I mean, I don't think its fair to compare him to Dave Lombardo or Mike Portnoy, considering their experience and The Rev's untimely death. The Rev could have been much better overtime had he not suddenly passed away though.
He's not the best metal drummer, honestly Dave Lombardo's a lot better in comparison.
Pretty much everyone in Led Zeppelin is way more untalented than people say they are.
He did steal some songs but he improvised them and created his own style
He is on 35th of "Greatest Rock Guitarists of All Time" list. Higher than guitarists like James Hetfield and Yngwie Malmsteen.
I absolutely love Green Day, but I will admit that he is not the best guitarist. Although, he has very iconic vocals.
I fw Green Day but this 1 singer is so overrated. There asre way better singers out there.
I don't really listen to his music except when he's with Nicki...and I like it, so I like him. So yea c:
Nice joke. A pebble has more talent than Lil Wayne.
I don't really care about what other people say. sure, you may not like her voice, but have you paid attention to her lyrics?, and no, don't tell me about her singles, her singles have some of the worst songs in her catalog, but to the deep cuts, the talent in songwriting is evident and is top tier
She gets overrated very fast. Almost all of her songs are revenge ballads about all her ex boyfriends or comparing herself to popular people. She never comes up with anything new.
And she is also isn't bad as people say.
She is not talented in anything except making my ears bleed with her lame pop music and her awful voice.
I don't think no one praised her.
Who said she was talented?
I totally agree with HiBye. Rev is overrated/people think he is good/isn't very talented. But that goes more for Lars.
Much better drummers in metal out there, even The Rev is better in some aspects...
Kendrick lamar is actually very talented, the only thing I get put off by is his voice, which can be a problem at times but he's really good as a rapper and as an artist.
No, he deserves his praise.
He's a decent drummer but his guitar skills are mediocre at best his vocals are at most ok.
Haven't listened to much by him but I'd say he's actually pretty talented.
Whoever added him obviously doesn't know Hip-Hop.
Excuse me! NO. He's immensely talented, whether you like his voice or not. He's got a remarkable vocal range, power, sustain and technique. His vocal range is 5 octaves, 2-1/2 notes! For comparison, Pavarotti range is only 2 octaves, 2-1/2 notes. I know about only 5 other singers who's got a range over 5 octaves. This is a rare talent. It's another topic how Axl wasted much of his talent and got a bad reputation.
He has one of the highest vocal ranges ever recorded, can play piano, and has written killer songs. He is very talented in my opinion.
There are plenty of other singers who are just as good. He's not the one and only, even though most people try to make him out to be.
Honestly his singing's not that great and nowadays he's just a washed up has been, a joke if you will.
To think about it, Selena really doesn't show much talent in her songs. I thought it was just her songs that weren't good then I decided to watch her live performance because some artists do better live (like Ariana) and no, her voice is still very mediocre and her performances are very dull.
When people say "Honestly" or "To be honest", what they really mean is "In MY opinion", nothing more.
Honestly there's far more talented singers out there.
Mediocre and one dimensional vocalist.
I truly think Bobby is one of the most talented musicians out there.. like, his voice suits his songs, I can't imagine him having a voice of Mercury and singing his songs. Also, his songwriting is probably the best out there along with Roger Waters, just listen to Boots of Spanish Leather, All Along The Watchtower, Jokerman, Hurricane, Girl From the North Country, Positively 45th Street, Idiot Wind, Visions of Johanna. He definitely shouldn't be on this list.
Edit: And I don't even think many people say he is talented (other reasons than his songwriting, which he is as talented at as people say), another reason he shouldn't be on this list.
Dylan's voice is an acquired taste. It fits and works for him. Interestingly, he's been copied often by Tom Petty, and Springsteen has been incorporating his vocal and instrumental phrasing for decades, and no one seems to mind.
I kinda disagree here. Cause no one likes his voice. Its his song-writing skills that everybody likes. And he is recognized for it. I also don't like his voice. Sometimes I just listen to his tributes.
His voice is horrid but his writing is good, I guess...
