1 Simple Plan
Simple Plan is a French-Canadian pop rock/pop-punk band from Montreal, Quebec. The band has released six albums.
Their third (self-titled) album is a sort of subversion. It does feature some mature tracks and shows signs of the band making mature lyrics and music. And in all honesty, they should have kept to that direction. The fourth album as a small selection of songs that are passable, but the rest is disposable. Taking One For The Team is absolute garbage and a pathetic display of regression for a band whose members are nearing the age of 40.
Most of their songs have whiny themes, and you can even tell from the title that it will be a whiny song (think In a Perfect World, God Must Hate Me, or How Could this Happen to Me).
This band is a cheap rip off Blink-182. Their songs are so whiny, the vocalist in unbearable.
I can actually laugh at their whiny songs.

Whiniest band ever.Their music just consists of generic riffs found in almost all Screamo/Post Hardcore bands and their vocalist Andy Biersack is a whiny singer who is ugly and whines all the time.-DarkBoi-X
Whiny and painful to sit through.
Whiny as can be

More downright annoying than whiny but either way they suck elephant crap.Also Dahvie is ugly and looks like the scene/emo version of Harley Quinn.-DarkBoi-X

Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2008 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce along with former lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist ...read more.
Like Christangrant said they're basically a hardcore One Direction which is as bad as it sounds.
They have a few good songs like "A Prophecy" and "I won't give in" but other than that they suck and I agree they're whiny.-DarkBoi-X

10 Fall Out Boy

My Chemical Romance is also whiny but at least Gerard Way sounds a lot more tolerable than Patrick Stump's painfully whiny vocals and lyrics.
Screw this band.
11 Twenty One Pilots

Lots of Pop Punk bands with the exceptions of Green Day, The All American Rejects, Sum 41, The Offspring and Blink 182 come off as whiny. This band sure as hell is no exception.
This band sucks.
14 Bullet for my Valentine
Bullet for My Valentine are a Welsh metalcore band from Bridgend, formed in 1998. The band is composed of Matthew Tuck (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Michael Paget (lead guitar, backing vocals), Michael Thomas (drums) and Jamie Mathias (bass guitar). Former members include Nick Crandle and Jason James; ...read more.
Their earlier material (Even if it was whiny) was at least good for Metalcore standards. Scream Aim Fire is their best album, mostly because Bullet For My Valentine tries to change its sound to a more Rock/Metal approach, and that the sound of that album is actually more aggressive and seriously approachable. Fever is also somewhat good in its own right, as is The Poison. But other than that Bullet For My Valentine isn't exactly very good, just passable at most...
Nah.B4MV is not whiny to me.In my opinion they are the best Metalcore bands and I have listened to lot's of Metalcore bands ranging from good ones like As I Lay Dying to whiny Emo Metalcore/Emocore bands like Asking Alexandria who have only 2 good songs.-DarkBoi-X

I don't see "whiny" as a bad thing, I mean it most likey appeals to certain teens but hey it appeals to people and it's not anyones place to judge people for liking an innocent music genre(s)/style/trait. I like some of these bands and there's nothing wrong with that.
Is the singer a grape?

18 The Cure
