Top 10 Worst Albums of 2022

Here are the most horrendous album releases in the year 2022.

NOTE: Do not add any releases that have not come out yet. Wait until the release date.
The Top Ten
1 Mamaru - RuPaul

I didn't think the drag queen RuPaul would release such an atrocious album.
It's just a mess that insults straight and LGBTQ+ people's tastes in music and ruins the quality of hyperpop, making it sound even worse.
Plus, it sounds like he's trying to do some tricks to brainwash listeners into his schemes like whatever he came up with.
The melodies (if there are any) are just an annoying mess and make you want to change the station first thing.
Worst album by RuPaul because it sucks bows.

Seriously like knives to the ears.

2 DS4Ever - Gunna

Another awful auto-tuned Southern rapper. How did this along with Encanto even beat Dawn FM by The Weeknd to peak at number 1 on the Billboard 200 in the first place.

It's kind of boring.

3 Country Stuff the Album - Walker Hayes
4 Mainstream Sellout - Machine Gun Kelly

Ugh, I never cared for him and this album just wasn't good. Tickets to my downfall was decent but after his Numb and Aerials covers, I lost all faith that the album would be good. Not even Travis Barker (drummer of my favorite band) could save this travesty and oh my god, EMO GIRL SUCKS!

Tickets to My Downfall was pretty fresh-sounding, but this new album by MGK is very tame in comparison and relies on every pop-punk cliché in the book. This pop-punk revival fad could die out as fast as it came.

5 Bad Reputation - Kid Rock

It's Kid Rock, need I say more? Fine I will, Kid Trash put out quite possibly his worst album yet and is still being all conservative and dumb and spits all his awful views in this album.

That album is definitely the strongest contender for worst album of the year so far. All of the songs are so annoying and clichéd they sound like parodies or some drunken boomer at a bar ranting about how the modern world, millennials or Covid-19 measures suck and how life was better before over a backing band playing covers of Bob Seger, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Aerosmith, Rod Stewart or Trace Adkins. In other words, that album is basically unlikable and will sure make Kid Rock go from icon to laughing stock. And besides, not only did it not get a critic score on Album of the Year , but it bombed extremely hard on the Billboard 200 (#128). Considering his previous albums have all charted within the top 10 (since 1998's Devil Without a Cause), it's a gigantic disappointment and shows how Kid Rock ridiculed himself by declaring himself "uncancelable". Karma definitely hit Kid Rock... very hard!

6 Iridesense - BigBabyGucci

Wow, how many rappers with the name "Baby" are there? Only heard of Lil Baby and DaBaby.

7 Cowboy Tears - Oliver Tree

The deluxe edition of the album is surprisingly better than the standard album. Oliver Tree is finally finding his way again.

Oliver Tree's first album was good, but this new album is really disappointing. The production borrows too much on 90s nostalgia, which makes most songs sound outdated, and Oliver Tree's vocals are too one-dimensional and try too hard to sound quirky.

8 2 Alivë - Yeat
9 Ethereal - $not

Another bland and unfocused album by a rapper who blatantly lacks personality.

10 Colors - YoungBoy Never Broke Again
The Contenders
11 Me vs. Me - NLE Choppa
12 Diabolical - Destruction
13 Hate Über Alles - Kreator
14 God Did - DJ Khaled

As always, it's DJ Khaled making DJ Khaled with the same old artists and the same old ad-libs. As one of his hit songs says, "no new friends". There may be a few good songs here and there such as the title track, which has a fire verse by Jay-Z, but overall, nothing changes, there's a lack of hits and I think DJ Parody Khaled should just fade into irrelevancy for good.

15 On to Better Things - Iann Dior
16 Will of the People - Muse

I was very skeptical about the album considering the contrasted quality of each song that came before, and all I can say is that this album is disappointing. Muse's music has always been over the top most of the time, but now they sound like they've become parodies of themselves. Not only are the lyrics clichéd and desperately edgy or melodramatic, but the band's Queen pastiches are more annoying than ever, the Marilyn Manson ripoff in the title track is cringe-inducing and tone-deaf (did they not hear about the allegations against Manson?) and the production is mostly overblown. If you thought Simulation Theory was their worst album, then you were probably wrong.

17 Elevation - Black Eyed Peas

Ranked #5 worst album of 2022 by Anthony Fantano, even though he hasn't even listened to it.

Yet again, it's the Black Eyed Peas hopping on the latest trends and taking on the cheapest elements of modern music. After exploring reggaeton on their previous album Translation, they take on eurodance, likely inspired by Beyoncé's Renaissance. While there may be a few good songs that will get people going on the dancefloor ("Simply the Best" is better than expected), the album is mostly gimmicky and hollow as the BEPs tend to be. They also try to harken back to their 2009-11 sound on "Don't You Worry", which features David Guetta (cue the nostalgia factor?) and Shakira (who's AutoTuned vocals make her unrecognizable). Despite the song being too outdated by today's standards, it still managed to become a hit in various European countries.

Their female singer J. Rey Soul even tries to provide her own take on "My Humps" in "Double D'z", which falls completely flat with its reference to Adam Levine's DMs during the hook, is super annoying and doesn't have the guilty pleasure ...more

18 Transparency - Twin Atlantic
19 You're It - Gupi
20 The Sex Tape - Lil Squeaky
21 The Life of Stuart - Lil Stuart Little
22 The Zanpook Collection - Lil Pinecone
23 Pink is Better - Token
24 Honestly Nevermind - Drake

This album's so boring and trash. Logic's Vinyl Days is better (they were released the same day).

25 Breezy - Chris Brown

I haven't even listened to that album but it doesn't even have a critic score on Album of the Year, which is a clear sign it's going to suck.
